Prepare to Survive Total Economic Collapse
Gerald Celente Blogspot ^ | 5/14/12

Posted on 05/14/2012 7:11:25 PM PDT by Kartographer

The collapse will be a cycle. Its wise to be prepared for all the angles of possibilities .It will be survival of the fittest and most aware. That's exactly what's happening. Either be aware, prepare, survive, and thrive.. or stay in denial and eventually die on your knees. People have a choice. Most choose to stick their heads in the sand while keeping their lazy fat asses in the air. Most of em enjoy the raping.Avoid big cities and crowded places ,Buy food, water, a water purifier, guns and ammo. You will need medical supplies, vitamins and ibuprofen. Power will be an issue. No power? No toilet. You need power for water in the city and if you have a well. When the food and water has run out in the houses and the stores are closed and empty, the people will be in the streets. You DO NOT want to be one of them.

I have an old artisian well on the property. I’m going to get a manual pump for it and run a line down. At least until I can get my auto standby generator I’ll have water from my well to use.

8 days without power during an ice storm in 2008 made me a believer. Even if a SHTF event doesn’t happen I’ll be prepare for the worst.

Read The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. It explains what’s happening and why. Most amazing book I’ve read in a very long time.

Work on the spelling. It’s “bored” unless, of course, you did mean “board” as in “stiff as a” as in DEAD because you failed to prepare.

I only got as far as his saying: “A Darwinian culling of the human species....” and I knew hat he’s an unbeliever, and on top of that, his eyes are brown!

Psa 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Mat 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I’ll trust Jehovah Jirah; The Lord my Provider. I believe He will see me through. But to paraphrase what the 3 young Hebrews said prior to being thrown into the fiery furnace: And if He does not see fit to provide for me, I’ll just die and go to Heaven. The born again believer can’t lose, no matter WHAT happens!

That’s a good question. I try to keep enough on-hand for our nine cats for about a year, but haven’t found freeze-dried stuff. We aren’t eating our cats! A couple of them can probably catch lizards, birds, and bugs for us...

Agreed!

Unfortunately, the economic collapse is pretty much inevitable regardless. However, the government may be somewhat less of an enemy without Zero at the helm.

Still, best to keep in mind that no matter who occupies the WH, in a collapse the government is NOT going to be on the side of the people and it will not protect us.

Mr. RightField and I had lunch at this restaurant (Dookey Chase in New Orleans) last year. On the way out, we saw this picture (sans the dog, of course) hanging above the doorway. We realized we had been sitting at that exact table, and Mr. RightField had been in the same seat as Obama. It was enough to make us want to upchuck the meal.

Good for you. Too bad your meal was spoiled by the image of Glorious Leader.

I had a conference in New Orleans before Katrina. The Cajun food is fantastic. Oyster sandwiches called Poor Boys. Wonderful sauces and the Gumbo. Wow.

Honestly, if it is that bad, even prepared people will not last very long. They will be targeted by one group or another. If they have a bunch of people together so they have some numbers, personalities can still pose problems. Ifyou have supplies it will get out. Military may decide to re-stock on your 10-20. Injuries received will not allow you to keep fighting like in the movies where you can still keep moving and using your injured leg or arm very long.

All it takes is a blade or bullet to ruin years of prep. Bugging out has the same problems. You are a target in a vehicle and someone can reach out and touch you from a long way away. Ambushes on bridges, high fields, gullies, etc. If you’re a stranger in the area you’ve got nothing personal to stop them from relieving you of your gear.

That is simply a lame excuse for not taking care of business. Let me tell you why I say that...

Sure, some tough times could be coming for which a person needs to prepare to survive. But nobody knows how long those times are going to last - it may only be for six months or a year. And, once it's come and gone things might start to get better than ever (for those who survive).

So, you want to "be dead" rather than endure a few months of hardship that our forebearers might have considered a cakewalk? You want to "be dead" when other folks you care about might need you later?

I guess there's a million excuses not to do the due diligence necessary to get through tough times - but yours is not in the top 10 list.

Let me give you a better excuse ... how about "I'm not preparing because I don't think the crap will ever hit the fan"...or, "I'm certain the government will take care of me.". Try these on for size, they are much better. :)

It was a wonderful lunch, really. When Mr. RightField's uncle was living, he had had a passing acquaintance with Dooky. We saw Dooky sitting in the bar on our way out, so we stopped to introduce ourselves. It was sad to hear him talk eloquently about Obama, and about how Obama was going to give all this free money to businesses and people like himself. Dooky said we all have to be patient, and give Obama time to make the world a better place.

My husband listened politely and thanked Dooky for the grand lunch we had. There was no point in talking politics.

But, for the food and ambiance, we will definitely go there again when we are in NO.

I have an old artisian well on the property. I’m going to get a manual pump for it and run a line down. At least until I can get my auto standby generator I’ll have water from my well to use.

We bought a semi-rural property in 2009 and I observed that there were two switches on the circuit breaker that were labeled "well." There was no sign of the wellhead, so I contacted the State Water Resources Board and received a map of all the water wells drilled in my section. There was no record of any well drilled on my property, so it must have been done off the books. Do you have any suggestions on how I could locate the wellhead? Thanks.

You have wiring underground from your house to the wellhead. You can follow this with a metal detector. As an aside, plastic pipe going to septic tanks is often buried with a strand of wire to make it easy to find in the same fashion.

Witching rods... don’t ask me, but they do work. Metal detectors as electrically piped wells are often piped or will contain a collar for the hose at the top. Look for a flat piece of ground that might have contained the original home or barn. They often dug the well first back in the day before they built the house next to it.

Best of luck. A well is a wonderful thing!
