If there were a beginning of something there has to be and end of it, right? The end of ‘something’ has always been near, but is THE end really as near as some people would like for us to believe?  Maybe, maybe not. After 25 years on this journey of ever growing to live a  more self-sustained and prepared life – I’ve heard various cries of the ‘end’ being near.  Some of which were out of sheer desire to motivate, while others were out of selfish ambition to motivate others to purchase a particular product or adhere to a specific  […]

The Invasive Species Order was signed as an Executive Order in 1999 by then President Clinton. The recent muscle behind the Order has been exercised by the Department of Natural Resources far more frequently under the current administration.  While in affect an Executive Order designed to squelch the potential spread of swine flu, mad cow disease and the avian (bird flu) virus – in recent years the broadened focus of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has gone into small private farms and co-ops to impose the Invasive Species Order (INS) upon civilians in a SWAT raid fashion. One of […]

In a new effort to pressure Iran over it’s nuclear program, the European Union has imposed sanctions on Iranian Oil. There is some ‘wiggle room’ for negotiation, on the sanctions however if Iran were to suspend  it’s atomic activity. Does the actions of those ‘across the pond’ affect those in the USA and around the world? I believe they will affect us and sooner as well as later. Some events that I see happening are as follows: Immidiately the west will have issues with crude oil prices which will… Raise the price of gas at the pumps An already sluggish […]

  We are supporters of a certain Preparedness Forum that someone posted a question that went something like this: I hear a lot about having money and precious metals on hand for the uncertain future. Wouldn’t an investment not be better spent now in a different way? Canned peas that cost currently cost $.78 might be $7.80 in our economic future.  I would personally rather have food, water and toilet paper than paper money, coins or even gold and silver. The foundation for asking this question is the current economy and trends. The question is very legitimate as many of […]

Security?

Without getting overly spiritual and heading down the path of in Whom our security should lie and Who knows the end of the book while we’re still acting out the chapters here on earth…the topic of “security” has become a volatile one at best here in the tangible world.

To get prepared, get fear under control.

Author: Donna Miller There is a great difference that rearranging that subject line above would make.  It could read: “To get fear under control, get prepared.” However, that is not exactly how I feel the true prepared lifestyle actually works. The fact is that most of us have never chosen wisely reacting out of  fear. Chaos, emergencies, and emotional instability often force us into feeling that we  have to make decisions immediately and often on only partial information and even worse, on little if no faith. Fear can be a motivator, but it can also be a jailer or a […]
