How to prepare your family to survive and thrive in todays uncertain world

Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down…

It continues to baffle me to no end that people just can’t see reality for what it is. A prime example of this is the recent election in France. The French people didn’t like what they were hearing from their government so they replaced them with someone who says they’re going to hire more government employees and increase handouts.

Boy that worked well in Greece, didn’t it.

On what planet does it make sense to keep the pedal to the metal when we’re headed off a cliff. Just because you can’t see the cliff doesn’t mean it’s not there, especially when all the road signs are telling you it’s just ahead.

Frankly, this worries me to no end. It’s not an issue that is just for the French, or the Greeks, or the Germans to worry about. This stuff hits world wide, and will impact everyone.

Do you really think it’ll be a soft landing if the Euro implodes, and all that debt (and the corresponding insurance on that debt) hits the fan?

Or what about the fact that the Fed is now buying 70% of all T-Bills. Think about that for a minute. $0.70 out of every $1 that the government raises through issuing debt is created out of thin air. Do the math, and then tell me this is sustainable.

But what about the $0.30 that comes from someone other than the government? Lots of OTHER governments are part of that 30%. Think they’re just printing the paper to pay for this or do you think it is legitimate? My bet is on the printing presses burning up.

Folks, this whole system is tied together. Not only are all the governments integrally linked, but major multinational corporations are part of this as well. They all work together, and own eachothers debts. This is a massive house of cards, and the earth has started to shake a bit.

Bottom line … when Europe goes, we probably won’t be all that far behind. So keep an eye on it as an early indicator and warning signal.

I don’t know what it’ll look like. It may be just a blip. It may be Mad Max style roving hordes. I don’t know, and anyone who says they know is lying.

So back to fundamentals. Secure your systems of support. Build redundancies. Produce some of your own food. Learn skills.

Get on it. You’ll never get today back. Don’t waste it.

One Response to Ashes, Ashes, We All Fall Down…

  1. Somehow the election in France reminder me of the following and in my way of thinking RELIVING HISTORY, SUCKS, big time.

    Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force! You are about to embark upon a great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers in arms on other fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over the oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
    Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened, he will fight savagely.
    But this is the year 1944! Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man to man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our home fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to victory!
    I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory!
    Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessings of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.

    — Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
