Or because

You are right Voltage I’ve talked to hundreds of preppers over the last two years and many people who like me try and provide guidance to those who prep or are starting to and the one comment I hear the most is that they have a ‘feeling’. These people are from all social, education and financial backgrounds. I say listen to that little voice in the back of your head, because there’s a good chance it knows what its’ talking about or as the Bible says:

A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
NIV Proverbs 22:3

Something wicked this way comes, are you ready?

For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:

http://tomeaker.com/kart/Preparedness1j.pdf

NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!

For those of you who haven’t started already it’s time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, a extra couple changes of oil and filters for your car, tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.

As the LDS say “When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.”

Lastly this for the doubters and the scoffers.

“There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.

Underestimation can be fatal.”

I say do not give up all hope:

”Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13

"In my bag there's a bible to show me the way,
Through my trials here on earth and to Heaven some day.
I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword,
In defence of this land and the word of the Lord.
Bright Sunny South by Alison Krauss

“I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of woes and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!”
From the movie 'The Return of the King'

Note too, Laz - it's not just the Gramscian infiltration we need to worry about, but also that of the Islamist undermining of our whole society. Look at this thread I posted last night.

Be well, FRiend.

What really got me was when he likened the system to a “top” and that once the key people were in place (media, academia,etc) it just kept spinning on it’s own. One generation contaminating the minds of the next.

null and void ~ The rest of the country (and humanity for that matter) needs to eat the elephant one sandwich at a time.

ETL ~ The bulk of the meat will have spoiled by the time they've consumed a small fraction.

Like it won't if you try to stuff the whole elephant down one man's gullet at one sitting?

Here's a tip, give 1000 men one slice of elephant and two pieces of bread.

What’s this “whole elephant” stuff? I almost always only post excerpts and links. Like it or not, this is a complex subject (communists trying to hijack our system). We are all adults here. Spoon-feeding is for infants and toddlers.

Alright then. Kindly post a link to any of the editorials you have written for this forum, thread spambot.

To be succinct: if you insist on continuing to be a jerk, then I have no more to say to you.

Apparently I'm not the only person who thinks you are presenting too much information to digest in one go.

See post #38, #88, #91, #107 and #119.

What sells the Corvette? Two or three simple points, or pages of technical minutia?

Presentation is important.

Which does a restaurant serve:

Drinks, appetizers, soup, salad, a main course, side orders, desert and then coffee or drinks.

or a vat with all of the above mashed together?

Which would you buy:

A scorched chunk of dead flesh oozing fluids and covered in fungus

or

A juicy steak done just the way you like it smothered in mushrooms?

Break it down into easily enjoyed and absorbed bits, sell the sizzle, not the steak.

Yes, we're all adults here, yes we vote, and yes most of the people not on FR who do vote need some spoon feeding.

God knows they get the liberal side in sound bites. Face it, sound bites work on most voters.

Using tools that are proven to work for each job is smarter than trying to get that nifty left-handed reverse snamelfrachtet adjustment pin wrench to do all jobs.

She was right and your right. It’s a God thing. But I think it’s too late. It’s over. Biblically there are many warnings and many examples of what befalls countries that embrace God and then reject him. Our country, as a government and as a culture, has rejected God.

There’s no nice way to put it. There’s no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There’s no happy ending for conservatism in the US. It’s over. Our country will fall for it’s rejection of the Lord. Physical or economic captivity is in the forecast.

But there is good news. As a God thing, the return of Jesus Christ will occur. Christ will return and establish a true, one world, peaceful government and will physically rule over all nations and teach us how we’re supposed to live.

This was all foreordained before the foundations of the Earth. We are in the Last Days, the End Times predicted in Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation. It began with Nimrod and Semiramis, Ahab and Jezebel and carries thru with 0bama and Moochelle. We will soon witness Petrus Romanus introducing the Beast to the world and the creation of the One World Religion and the One World Government. Time is short and the Trumpet will soon sound. Put not your trust in men but in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

ACE: Ready old chum?
DUANE: (Seems nervous) Just let me check. Thermos, sandwiches, corn plasters, telephone money, dandruff brush, animal footprint chart and one triple thick condom, you never know!
ACE: OK Duane, let's step into the airlock and get part 2 of the plan underway.
DUANE: Oh, what plan is this?
ACE: Just step in there, Duane. (DUANE does so and ACE steps in after)
DUANE: So, what precisely is the plan?
ACE: I think you'll find it a little more comfortable if you stand in front of me.
DUANE: Why are we in this airlock?
ACE: Just relax old chum. I'm sending you on ahead.
DUANE: I'm the scout party?

I wrote to you to encourage you. You thanked me for my encouragement by doing some more shtick on being satan’s son. You can remove me from your ping list. Your actions speak louder than your words..

Ooooo. Way to twist the knife. LOL ;)

Twist the knife?

Hardly. Just trying (vainly apparently) to make a point:

Charm, wit and levity
will win you in the start
but in the end it's brevity
that keeps the public's heart

Your request to be on the ping list was a full day after the events that transpired. But I shall remove you, since you asked to be removed.

It's a big forum. Let's 'just miss one another' a lot. :)

My son is a great source of support on this for me (funny he is better at this than I am, as I raised him... but anyway). When I start talking about stocking up food supplies for the coming mess we are about to enter, he reminds me: If it is truly the end times, and our dealings with the Savior have been made right, then we have nothing to worry about. Either God provides or we won’t be here. Those times are coming.

I cannot see how people would remotely consider putting this administration back in charge for another four years given where they have driven this nation in the past four years. Seriously? I am reassured by people who remind us that the polls had Carter ahead in 1980; but, still I wonder and worry.

K. Thread dissolved a little into some sniping back and forth. These things happen. What I would like, therefore, is to maybe work directly with Askel (you) to produce some quality editorial and ‘which direction do we go’ material. I have good writing talent, and she's (you've) got the brain that is easily two- to three-times smarter than mine. I'm interested in collaboration, and we are, Askel and I, likely of very similar mindsets these days.

I'd remind him back, the old WWII phrase: "Praise God... but pass the ammunition."

Alright then. Kindly post a link to any of the editorials you have written for this forum, thread spambot.

Most of the "editorials" I've read are well written but simplistic. Example, this one here. Things most here knew or figured out a long time ago. What I often post is researched, straight-from-the-horse's-mouth, convincing evidence of what Obama and the commie left are up to. Conveniently gathered facts which can be easily passed along to friends, relatives or enemies. Much of it is stuff you won't see many other places. You do write very well, however. Your use of the language is impressive. But, again, I'll take substance over style every time.

I have to be honest with you, I don’t want to have to live in that kind of world. At the time of the Revolution, Civil War, this country was worth fighting for. But, if we are entering the end times, I want to be gone. I will try to post more from home, but there are so many other things that have gone way wrong in this country, I am not sure it is repairable.

Thanks for the thread Laz. I am with you, that we truly are at the place where only God can turn it around. That being said, I also believe that it is our job to show that we are ready and willing to step up in His name, and that we are worthy of His intervention - think Diogenes : |

And RushIsMyTeddyBear, thanks for the link.... I think : /

May God guide our course, and share his strength.

I'll make one last attempt. I'm not sure why.... however, then I am done.

Do you know the basic rule of good presentation? It is this: Tell them what you are going to tell them, then tell them, then tell them what you told them... and BE SUCCINCT WHEN YOU ARE DOING SO. Most CEOs (and other public speakers) follow this formula with great success.

Let us consider a radio broadcast. Perhaps it has crucial information in it. But if the signal is hard to discern, scratchy or unintelligable or has way too much information for too little a time, most people will tune out. An attractive broadcast, however, expounding on one single theme, often gets and holds peoples' attention.

The goal of a communicator is not to talk, or write. THE GOAL OF A COMMUNICATOR IS TO BE HEARD, OR BE READ.

You won't be read if your message is unattractive. You will be read if your message is attractive. Part of being attractive is being succinct and limiting your message bandwith to something manageable.

What you would term 'simplistic' is, to my perception, a manageable-sized and attractive message.

Remember the old story about how a flood came while a man was in his house and he prayed to God to rescue him from his house? First a man came and warned him to leave in his car and the man said no God is going to rescue me. Then a man came in a boat as the waters rose and the man in the house said, No God is going to rescue me... and then a rescue man in a helicopter came and the man refused, saying, no, God is coming to rescue me. Finally the man died. When he got to heaven, he asked God why he had not rescued him. God said, well I sent you a man in a car, a man in a boat and a man in a helicopter, what else did you want?

I understand it wasn't your intent. It was just a cheap, schoolyard bully-like attempt at instigating trouble between us, while the bully runs off someplace snickering.

All emails failed. Additionally, when I discovered hotmail was retired, trying the other options (@live.com and @outlook.com) all failed. Any other methods would be appreciated.

I don’t think that is what we are talking about though. I do that every day, right? What I am talking about is that if we get down to the end, and we are thinking we have to survive an apocalypse, Christians are going to be part of that suffering.
