So, what are your plans for the coming debacle?
Vanity | January 18, 2009 | WCF

Posted on 01/18/2009 7:25:44 PM PST by WorkingClassFilth

This thread (if it survives the moderators) is meant to be an end of the Republic commemorative. Bracketed by end of the Julian calendar and the Chinese New year, I thought a repository of comments marking the rise of a new leftist messiah to be sardonic and fitting.

Before any FReepers hit the ABUSE button, please look around youself . . . with kooky vanities about just-the-right-puppy-breeds and the non-stop religious scripts and debates abounding on NEWS/ACTIVISM, I thought a simple question about what conservatives were personally considering doing during the promise of a new age of fascism might be worthwhile.
So, given that we're all of a conservative mindset and that (as adults) we all recognize what the next four years (or decade and beyond) might herald, I ask: What are your plans? Where do you plan to go and what do you plan to do in years of the coming darkness?

I know we should pray for an awakening. And I do hate to see anyone come to the end time without having being sure of eternal hope BUT my real prayer is more and more becoming MARANATHA! Come quickly Lord Jesus!

While the “historic” train ride was “happening” yesterday, I watched Braveheart and wondered if there were any in our midst that would die for freedom.

My 10yo and I spent the day making ravioli and sauce to go with it.

When the schedule about the "stop" in Wilmington to "pick up" Biden was announced on the Delaware websites I still frequent, I commented it was a shame I couldn't be there but I was scheduled to wash my windows :) It didn't go over well with the moonbat crowd, nor did my reference to painting my kitchen on Tuesday!!!!

Poor babies.

Perhaps all the more so given that 3-4 other folks have “seen” something similar.

I’d like to know where the 4 Corners area is precisely on that map! LOL.

Thx. for your kind reply.

I want a greenhouse so very badly! Alas, we probably won’t get one done this year. Although we could still easily pull together a small coldframe.

I’m planning to expand our modest garden this year as well. Last year we had 3 raised beds, probably 60 square feet in all, but ended up doing well. And more importantly learning what will and will not grow in our semi-shaded back yard. Found out I can grow hot peppers like nobody’s business! LOL

I will not be watching TV news until a few days after this inauguration.

It is very doubtful that the GOP could overcome its 75 seat deficit in the House. The GOP has too many “country club” types. RINOs. They are also not willing to fight for anything. The Libertarians are correct about a lot of things but are not a viable third party. The Constitution Party could well be viable if they were not so far to the right socially, in some cases.

In the long term I believe the US will move toward a big brother state where the environment, security and safety are used to confiscate private property and control people.

It has always been my belief that the elites want us little people penned up in the cities working long hours and paying high taxes.

Don’t miss a tax break for anything. Support your local church or synogogue. Belong to a social club where you know you can trust the people in them. The best are in the east.

The bootheel region of Missouri is definitely susceptable to the new madrid fault. South and south central and west central would be safer from that standpoint. but you have springfield metro with 200,000 people spilling out like a stomped anthill looking for things to survive on.
Live on a good hill, rock solid. own a small valley suitable for small crops, livestock and water, creek and deep well.
And have one road in and out to cut down on traffic.

Threw the TV out near 2 years ago, I think it was.

Don’t miss it much. Watched mostly news and educational programs.

Can get most of what’s worth anything better on the net, I think.

Same here. I remained essentially aloof to the Clinton presidency except for Rush, and did not talk politics with others. Abortion is a sensitive subject for me because of its violence juxtaposed against its casual acceptance; another person's view on that colors my view of them and their sense of humanity enormously. Best, therefore, not to discuss politics.

Was enormously productive careerwise during the Clinton years. As long as Obama leaves us as individuals alone (apart from the expected tax increases), we'll be fine.

Maybe a time for more prayer and reflection. Maybe a time to consider moving to a more conservative state.

I visited the Baker Creek Seed Company farm last summer for their annual summer festival. The general store had thousands of varieties of seeds for everything imaginable.
Every climate is represented but you need to do your homework before choosing. I haven’t smelled so much patouli in several decades. Definitely a hippy kind of atmosphere with the bluegrass bands, blacksmith demos, solar displays, and live plants. (I suspect there was some pot seeds available somewhere on the grounds).

My observation about the attendees......they are well prepared to survive an apocolypse. But do we want hippys to inherit the Earth?
Actually we had a great time and I have some seeds for this coming planting season.

Not much of a town. About an hour east of Springfield. I would love to live in that area somewhere. Beautiful and has everything i would want.

but my folks have a farm in north mo. i have been trying to figure out how i could buy the place and pay for it. I see no way given the state of the economy, but i am still scheming because i want that 280 acres.

.Hang in there,springtime in the commonwealth is beautiful and hope springs eternal.

I adore spring on the Eastern Shore. In fact I love all the seasons on the ESVA, they are far superior to the 20+ years of seasons I tolerated/suffered in Delaware!

However, we are still on DelMarVa and there is no tilling going on right now. Our daughter will be 11 in July, but because of her enjoyment of working in the kitchen with me is starting to understand just how important the garden is and the work it entails.

The good Lord willing, I will have my "kitchen" garden turned up in time to put in peas on Washington's birthday, which also happens to be my wedding anniversary.

Look on the bright side! ...can’t help but wonder if President Bush planned the deficits and economic problems to come. They won’t leave much in the way of revenues for Democrats or our local social “progressives” to do much damage with. The witches will be too busy with trying to survive.

I will continue working on my remote place throughout the deflationary period. ....then happily watching the dollar, anti-family bureaucrats and worthless, anti-family businesses fall, while the prices of freight fuel and foreign products go up. The globalist, bureaucrat and family-busting follies are coming to an end, and the gnarly, old hippie feminists are going to the nursing homes.

I too would love to live in that area. For now am south of KC on a 3 acre plot.

I grew up on the Osage Fork and dearly miss that 'lifestyle'.

North? It is very pretty north of KC on up to the Iowa border... but all the streams are mud bottom and I prefer the rock/sand bottom streams south of the MO River.

Ah Otterville, east of sedalia and whiteman AFB.
I used to live east about 35 miles near a town called California. Lots of missile silos in the area (supposedly decomissioned and empty)
would make good bunkers however.

Central Mo, with Whiteman, State Capital Jeff City, and south to ft Leonard Wood is definitely target rich. But i don’t have the fears of the soviet style launch as in the “Day After Tomorrow”. I don’t think the Chinese would destroy us because we are their best customers for stuff.
So for now, living near JC is good for now. But if the decision to bugout comes, not sure which way would be best to go.

Tonight, I’ve got the laptop for FReeping and am watching “Forensic Files”. A decided improvement over Obamania.

Our 10yo put the local country music station on the radio up here in the attic while daddy and I were downstairs fixing dinner and watching football. I plan on sticking with that for the next couple of days.

I agree. Beetles and woodchucks are getting rare. 50 years and 500,000 miles they just can’t last forever.
As for the hippies. I could co-exist. I don’t think global warming and world peace would be a priority after an apocolypse.

My ties to the north are because of the family farm in that region. And i do prefer the rock bottom creeks over the mud bottoms. But if i could figure out some way to pay for that farm, i would jump on it in a heartbeat.
