Changing Tides, Shifting Winds

While it is enormously easy to sit here behind my myriad of keyboards and mobile devices railing against what is wrong and where we are headed, it is not very productive.

There is literally so much fodder and doom out there, the tragic comedy that is our daily lives and observations writes itself. It needs very little from me and my fellow brethren that I could sit here on any given day and pound out post after post of snark infested banality.

However, in the spirit of bringing something useful to the table, I resolve from here on out to at least attempt to contribute to the cause versus metering out the usual doom and gloom. That is of course not to say that I won’t comment or outright lambaste those in power when they do their usual idiocy and treachery, only I will resolve – that is try – and do contribute something meaningful.


50 things

Jack Spirko at The Survival Podcast touts the mantra, “when times get tough, or even if they dont”.

I enjoy Jack’s take on many things. He’s worth checking out.

While I have not heard him expound on the concepts of 4GW or OODA or John Robb’s Global Guerilla construct, I think he gets the point of it all.

Scanning through my RSS reader this morning, I came across this link to a Lew Rockwell post.

It’s not the end all, be all of the future, but it fits nicely into the mold of what I think is headed our way.

Keep in mind that the further down the road you get today with regard to this stuff, the better off you will be.

Learn to grow your own food. Learn to defend yourself, your family and your possessions. Buy local whenever you can.

Be self-sufficient. As much as possible.

As we walk down the path we are on as a nation, and also in may ways, globally, the above suggestions will allow you to weather the storm more effectively and come out on the other side less scarred and battered.

The more self-sufficient you are today, means the less impact any doom & gloom will have on you in the future.

Deacon out.

So, here we are…

I find myself at an impasse with my fellow Americans.

I no longer believe in the system. I want change, but I am also smart enough to understand that government will not be the motivating factor for that nor will it ever be the solution. I am also smart enough to understand that there is no way we can ever go back to what the Republic was intended to be – not after the last century or so of foreign intervention, war and sizable growth of an out of control state.

We are stuck as a people. We are hanging on by a thread over the ledge of tyranny and cannot decide to let go and fall headfirst into history or drag our collective carcasses back onto the plateau of freedom and prosperity.

In fact, I’m not sure that we have the will to do either.

In the coming months, I will have more to say on these topics, but for now, know this.

Something wicked this way comes and every one of you – old, young, rich, poor, intelligent, stupid – will reap what has been sown.
