We are on the edge. Every day there is a new story about the Yutes who grow more and more restless. When you then add the fact that because of the economy people are already on edge and many are close to their breaking point it wont take much to set things off.
Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8) (1998)
Quark: Let me tell you something about Hew-mons, Nephew. Theyre a wonderful, friendly people, as long as their bellies are full and their holosuites are working. But take away their creature comforts, deprive them of food, sleep, sonic showers, put their lives in jeopardy over an extended period of time and those same friendly, intelligent, wonderful people... will become as nasty and as violent as the most bloodthirsty Klingon. You dont believe me? Look at those faces. Look in their eyes.
Today we have yutes who roam our streets who are with out morals, without respect for law or life itself. They will look are you with the same doll eyes a shark does before he eats you and they will feel no more compassion than the shark does.
That will be the test of many. Most preppers I know are Christian people and they will hesitate to do what they might have to do to stop the yutes. On the other hand the yutes wont think twice nor lose a minute of sleep, in fact they will smile and laugh about it.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpfull. You can download it at:
For those of you who havent started already its 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.
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
Bilge water! The Establishment fully intends to abolish 90% of the world’s population for their own purposes. Has nada to do with the planet earth!
Fortunately, very few people listen to this fool anymore.
Historically, major bottoms in economies are marked by dire predictions of doom. This particular bottoming process will be long due to its’ demographic roots, which can’t be solved overnight. But these doom stories may be an indicator of a bottoming process.
Let’s see, 2012 coming up. About 10 years to go, though things will be improving within 6.
Paul Ehrlich is a rotten bastard with a lot to answer for. The people playing his game will be overrun by those who don’t.
Anyway I got more respect for Harold Camping than this bozo.
I hope Preppers are planning for a very very very very LONG crisis.
This book had a profound infulence on me. It started my “Prepping”. I now have 17 years of water storred, 14 years of wheat, a grinding mill, and a pizza oven. Not to mention the heard of goats so that I will never run out of CHEESE.
One of the more interesting articles regarding the collapse:
We have an immediate problem right now and theres a 90% chance that those living today will experience what weve often referred to as TEOTWAWKI (The End of the World As We Know It):
Why do you think I bought a farm in the middle of nowhere? I got chickens for eggs, turkeys and rabbits for meat, will have at least one milk cow within 4 months and I live walking distance to a very good salmon/trout river.
When we get hungry for red meat, we’ll barter with the local beef ranchers.
I have a 1/2 acre garden going in this coming spring along with a 1/2 acre (perhaps more) of feed corn.
Me & mine will survive.
Europe, Scandinavia and Japan’s native populations are plummeting but as usual,
let’s not let the facts stand in the way of a liberal’s hair-raising Halloween story.
Ehrlich said that 90 million people in the US would be starving by 1990.
The truth was that there were 90 million people in the US who were on diets in 1990.
His research has no merit.
Even the UN admits global population will peak around 2050. Growth rates worldwide have been declining for decades. You can't find predictions beyond 2050, because everyone knows the world is going to follow the fate of Europe and Japan. Population will level off and then begin to decline. And for countries whose industries depend on consumer spending that is very, very bad news. We, well my descendants, will suffer from population decline, not overpopulation.
my first thought upon seeing your posting was “Could Paul Erlich possibly still be alive?”
Left truly without politicism, liberalism, the desire to control others' lives and devoid of the will to grab for absolute power, the world's growth problems would be solved - by ingenuity and free markets.
However, that is not what slugs like him want, because is cuts them out of the power equations. Instead of trying to help, he is yelling a false wolf so that he can feather his own nest. I hope he's the first to go when the sh!t hits the population fan, then.
It isn´t the people. It´s their attitudes.
