Skip to comments.So, what are your plans for the coming debacle?

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?
>>To survive the Opocalypse, me and mine are doing the >>Atlas Shrugged plan.
>>My grandparents survived hard times by being frugal and >>self reliant, we’ll do the same while giving the >>parasites as close to nothing to sustain themselves as >>possible.
>>I’m betting they’ll starve before we do.
Our plan exactly as well. And I’ve stocked up on everything I think we’ll need for awhile, I’m not buying one penny more of anything not absolutely essential, to avoid paying sales tax.
I’m also sending back charity request junk mail with a polite “sorry, no, why don’t you ask Obama for more money? Due to the high tax rate that is expected to go higher under his administration, I’m fresh out” note.
We’re dropping out of the system as much as humanly possible without actually quitting our jobs. And if either of us get laid off, we don’t plan on looking for awhile. We have no debt and can skate for awhile.
I’m also giving out copies of Atlas Shrugged to everyone I know who might read it. Even if they don’t agree with it, it will get them thinking.
Forgot to add: I suggest inserting yourself slowly into Democratic sites like DU, and once Obama doesn’t make money fall out of the air start complaining vociferously about it there. Get them riled up so they turn on him. We can make their movement collapse from within, if we work at it.
Start thinking like this, there’s a lot we can do.
I plan to have a garden. I need to plan on the means to protect it from the host of people who will try to steal from it when their welfare checks quit coming.
I have a “Galt’s Gulch, CO” decal on my Honda, and an NRA sticker on the Escape.
Oh dear! Deliver us! Deliver us!
The best revenge is living well.
I’m going to sit back, relax and laugh my a## off.
AMEN! AMEN! AMEN!
i STILL think that FREEPERS in each locality need to connect up and be mutual supports to one another in ways that would function without the net.
Interestingly, the PTB have divided the world into 10 REGIONS which will function more like countries.
I think NORTHAM is one such region.
Have you read the leaders’ quotes from 1900 in my tagline ref?
Oh, lord, liberals are sooooo weird.
That’s exactly what I think, too. God is still in control and He hasn’t let me down yet.
I’m doing the same, Salvation. I am not in the least bit interested in what the liberals are up to. This inauguration is a travesty. How many million are they spending on this ‘coronation’ ceremony? Enough to buy a bank...
You are exactly right. If we would humble ourselves and pray, as a nation, God will heal our land. Otherwise, we can expect judgement.
Been doing that since it all started on Friday. This is the first time I've gone 3 days straight without watching Fox News or any news.
And another gardener added to th list!
Can’t help you with the peat plugs, but I’m going to try and get a Garden thread started, so when you get pinged, bring all your questions to the group -— we’ve got some real experts there!
I’m on a waiting list to check out AS from the local library. Apparrantly EVERYONE wants to read it now.
Read that passage again. It’s not the nation as a whole that needs to humble itself, just “my people, who are called by my name”.
That means US.
Ah, so 'civilization' is creeping into the 'back woods'.
I saw parts on History Channel yesterday RE: Hillbilly: The Real Story DVD Join host Billy Ray Cyrus on a journey into the hollers and runs of Appalachia to discover the proud legacy of the region's mountain folk. Hillbilly: The Real Story The two-hour special, hosted by celebrity Billy Ray Cyrus, brings these mythic people to life through stories that span 300 years.
And on one side most of my ancestors came to Missouri after the Civil War. This show depicted the 'mindset' that fits the 'tales' I have heard like that of the Appalachia mountain folk that were my ancestors. Some more 'civilized' than others.
We have most certainly lost the war. How? AMENSTY is coming. 20-30 million new voters (make no mistake that is the goal)
At this point, short of a civil war or secession there is no saving this nation.
Thanks for the bump.
The Reference to Franken-stein- is definitely an eye opener, and not surprising. The software is probably based on “key word” recognition. I would suspect that an occasional reference to a “key word” might fall under the radar. But an assumed number of “key words” would trigger a catalogue file database.
The one thing the goverment don’t have is enough humans manning the info to take advantage of all the info. The government freely admits they are short on certain language translators and overwhelmed with info.
An aquaintance of mine, former military, in summary said this “I know what the government is capable of doing to fight resistance. We don’t have a chance of organizing anything meaningful without access to military technology”.
Spy drones firing rockets cross border in Pakastan is a good example. They use satellite imagery with GPS co-ordination to make precision strikes. They can monitor movements easily from thousands of feet above with infared, gps etc. The high tech usually wins the battles. But only if the target is reckless it it’s movement.
We’re looking in the area west of Knoxville. Low property taxes; low cost of living. Rifle racks in trucks. Polite people — even the kids! Actually, I fly out of LAX tomorrow to check out some real estate...
...which brings up another problem. I’ll be in airports tomorrow. Trapped. Inauguration Day. CNN. Low gag threshold.
My plans are to enjoy what I have( because the government wants to take it and give it so someone else). Get to know God better(that is number one). The rest is to hunker down and see what happens.
corporations leave too much paperwork trails.
LLC sole proprietor is the way to go. gives one access to assets quickly if needed.
Two kinds of sellers there, the mega-seller, and the "I've got some stuff I need to get rid of and somebody might pay me a couple of bucks for it" seller. I've done well with both kinds of people, most of the former category are just independent entrepreneurs. In fact, as the retail outlets close, the only way to find parts or accessories for things that we've already got is to go to eBay.
Don't forget flea markets and the often scowled upon art of the dumpster dive. (it's not just for leftists anymore.)
That's funny, I was just thinking this weekend that we're going to have to adopt techniques that the Abbie Hoffman "Steal This Book" types were using forty years ago to try to end the Vietnam War! The only difference is that they were never going to be productive members of society, they were always going to suck off of a government teat no matter how things went, and we are the people who really produce things and make the world work. Our shutting down will have a much greater effect than the hippies dropping out.
Good luck with the garden! I'm going to see if I can get a couple of half whiskey barrels for the back deck to grow some yellow Finnish potatoes, I don't think the condo association would let us get away with anything less froo-froo!
A good place for survival equipment is RangerJoes.com
They have a lot of military and SWAT grade items and are fairly reasonable in price.
The less of a trail the dogs have to follow to your wallet, the less you're going to have to feed them.
As I see it, if there's absolutely no other choice but to bid on an item you can't get anywhere else, sure go ahead, but it should be a last ditch effort to get something you can't possibly live without.
Clever idea. I might do the same.
There are various ways to buy things fairly anonymously, if you're interested in higher ticket items, they might be worth looking into.
Sight for sore eyes.
Fine. You’d surrender before the battle is over? I wonder how many of these presumptive new voters we can pull to vote conservatively. Assuming they become citizens. Assuming they bother to vote. Why can’t we be the community organizers? Do you think that perhaps Hispanic voters don’t like their family values flaunted by the leftist core Democrats?
You said — “BUT my real prayer is more and more becoming MARANATHA! Come quickly Lord Jesus!”
Amen to that...
Who said anything about surrendering? I'm saying that the voting system in this country is irretrievably BROKEN.
--they'll just print more money.
May I suggest the Jonesborough / Greenville area? Not to far north of Knoxville, same kinds of folks. You may get more for your buck, but it has been quite some time since I’ve been there. Just a suggestion - Good Luck with your travel.
We have a set of Foxfire books. Interviews and how-to manuals on independent rural mountain living in the old days. Copies of the Foxfire series may be available on-line or on ebay. They were published during the 1970’s.
Those are wonderful, aren’t they!
I’ve read prophetic words that indicate that if we as a nation would have a national day of repentance, God would be merciful to us. I would imagine most of those people WOULD be Christians but you never know...you might get some others to see the need.
Go to your local used bookstore and buy it for a dollar. You'll want to refer back to it in the days ahead.
I bought green vinyl chicken "wire" at Lowes - $12 for a 3' by 25' roll that I figure will make five potato bins which I'll hold together with ty-wraps.
At the risk of sounding like a goody-goody, I’ll say that my main goals will have to do with how I treat others rather than material provision for hard times. To care less about money, to become more generous when things get tough for others. And I mean to keep this separate from any Obama program.
I’m new to gardening, but please add me to your upcoming gardening list. I need to learn quickly!
It was broken in 2000 if not earlier. It's just that the left had an indisputably stupid candidate in Al Gore.
