Why Do They Hate Us? It’s a Pretty Long List… : “With the turmoil in the Middle East reaching a fever pitch, everyday people in the U.S. have, at one point or another, likely found themselves wondering: “Why?

Will Obama Keep Power ‘by Any Means Necessary : “If Obama thinks he’s losing, will he allow safe and fair elections on November 6? And if he does lose, will he peacefully turn over power to Mitt Romney on January 20, 2013? Or will he cling to power “by any means necessary,” as a highly placed insider alleges?” Thanks to Tom B for the link.

21 Facts That Show America’s Infrastructure Needs Major Help : “You can tell a lot about a nation by the condition of the infrastructure. So what does our infrastructure say about us? It says that we are in a very advanced state of decay. At this point, much of America is being held together with spit, duct tape and prayers. Our roads are crumbling and thousands of our bridges look like they could collapse at any moment. Our power grid is ancient and over a trillion gallons of untreated sewage is leaking from our aging sewer systems each year. Our airports and our seaports are clogged with far more traffic than they were ever designed to carry. Approximately a third of all of the dam failures that have taken place in the United States since 1874 have happened during the past decade. Our national parks and recreation areas have been terribly neglected and our railroads are a bad joke.”

Study points to health problems with genetically modified foods : “Rats fed corn engineered to resist spraying with an herbicide developed tumors and other health problems, a study finds. But geneticists criticize the research as seriously flawed.”

Mom sues police and neighbor after she is arrested for letting her kids play outside : “Allowing your kids to play on scooters outside the house on a quiet street seems innocent–and common–enough. But a Texas mom was arrested and spent the night in jail after a neighbor complained that the children were unsupervised.” Thanks to Arthur C for the link.

Why America Is The Most Materialistic Society In The World : “When it comes to materialism, has any nation ever surpassed what we are seeing  in the United States right now?  We define our lives by how much stuff we  have, to a large degree our personal and business relationships are defined by  how much money we make, and even most of the important dates on our calendar are all about materialism.”

Is The Fed Systematically Destroying Social Security and Retirement Plans? : “The mainstream media hailed QE3 as the “quick fix” that the U.S. economy desperately needs, but the truth is that the policies that the Federal Reserve is pursuing are going to be absolutely devastating for our senior citizens.”

Where Does Money Come From? The Giant Federal Reserve Scam That Most Americans Do Not Understand : “If the federal government could just print and spend more money whenever it wanted to, our national debt would be zero.  But instead, our national debt is now nearly 16 trillion dollars. So where does money come from?  In the United States, it comes from the Federal Reserve.”

Arsenic in Rice: New Report Finds ‘Worrisome Levels : “A major consumer magazine is warning Americans to limit how much rice they eat because of concerns over arsenic and the FDA is investigating the matter.” Thanks to mtwoman for the link.

In the gun control debate, the words we use matter (a lot) : “In this debate, words matter! Those supporting gun ownership and personal self-defense must be willing to repeatedly correct even the most popular misconceptions about firearms, including the way firearms are characterized, if they want to maintain our constitutional right to bear arms.” Thanks to Scott G for the link.

Walter Samasko Jr., Nevada Recluse, Found Dead With $7 Million In Gold Bars, Coins In Garage : “According to the Associated Press, Samasko, 69, died of heart problems, leaving no will.

Spend, Consumer, Spend: Why the Government Doesn’t Want You to Have Cash : “Consumer spending makes up roughly 70% of the economy, so despite both parties repeating pabulum about engaging in fiscal responsibility, the government always wants you to spend, spend, spend.”

  1. Quite a way to start off the week.

  2. I just loved TDL’s lies on 60 min last night that he has only contributed to 10% of the new national debt. He still rolled out that lame line that it was not his fault, that most of the new debt was to pay for the two wars , etc,etc that was the fault of the previous admin. I guess he will never take the responsiblity for anything that happens or does not happen unless it make him look good to sheeple.

    Will Obama Keep Power ‘by Any Means Necessary

    Wow! Scary! If this doesn’t make you want to…. I don’t know what would. The mere thought that this “could” happen angers me to no end!

    God help us!

  4. Arsenic in our rice? Why do those Asian people live to be so old? Just another way the Guberment gets into our lives. When they come to seize our guns and gold they will take our rice too. Feed the kids rice and your a child abuser and lose your right to have a gun. Just more creeping action to enslave us. How do you eat an elephant? B Hollywood Obama is doing it.

  5. Why do muslims hate us ? they hate everybody …….even each other . Like Ron Paul stated in the debates ( nobody wanted to hear it ) people are coming after us more often than not because we wont mind our own business , interfere and medal with every country on earth , and have military of one sort or another on foreign soil where we have no business being . Unfortunately we seem to have picked up where the Soviet Union left off …..people are just as glad to see us leave as they were the Russians .

    Spend money ? thats depends on what you believe is going to happen . If you believe that money is going to tank and be worthless very soon , then yes you should spend while it still has value . If you believe that things will eventually stabilize , then converting it into more options like silver and gold as well as saving may be your choice .

    Gun controle ? we all know that gun controle ONLY affects law abiding citizens , gives more power to the gestapo , and makes criminals bolder and more violent .

    Where does money come from ? well we just print it ………..when any nation stopps backing their currency by anything real and tangible ….it becomes worthless , its essentially worth something only because they say it is . In extreme situations unbacked money is worthless outside their own country . Soviet Union during WW2 is an example , they had to pay for aid with gold more often than not .

    Our infrastructure ? its a joke in some areas , said it before and will say it again , the fact that our highways and interstates are clogged with trucks proves we are doing it wrong . The long haul trucker is a job that shouldn’t exist in this country . The only trucks you should see are the local boys taking the goods where they need to go from the train stations .Our passenger rail should be at least up to the modern equivalent it was at during WW2 if not more . Our freight rail should be triple what it is now . just sayin

    Osama Obama keeping power at any cost ?
    I wouldn’t put it passed him …..he is a communist , we all know how they are . He may well try but the cost may be civil war . His side may not win , and a purge of liberals may come to pass , sort of like the purge of torries after the revolution .

    • Some good points. I’m spending all my yankee green backs as fast as I can make them on durable goods and sustainable preps. We are at the BIL and will stay there even some time after the election.

      Gun Control, will be ushered in by a false flag attack of epic proportions. Two have been tried already with limited results.

      The fed is losing control as more and more people see through the charade. Look for civilian gold and silver ownership to become illegal again.

      Anyone who has looked outside can see the issues with infrastructure. More importantly health care in this country is in shambles. Obumercare is going to make it worse. Have something to trade with the hospital that is worth hard currency.

      Funny that you mention Russia, I wonder when we will start to see the empty shelves at the GUM store and start trading on the black market for necessities. See you in Moscow.

      Barry saying that the attacks on the embassy was just a mob and giving 1B of money to Egypt is proof that he knows he will not be giving in to something as trivial as an election. Why do you think they ordered all that ammo? The elites really believe they can pull off the enslavement this year. Welcome to The Peoples Republic of North America.

      Finally we will have our say. Americans, if you count us out, you counted wrong. 1st Texas Volunteers.

      • And !st Arizona confederate volunteers . I’ll shake your hand when I meet at the front .

        • Agreed, at this point I’m hoping to see the Southern states try independence again. The alternative appears to be Club FEMA.

          • FEMA = Federal Encampment for Mass Annihilation . Well push for a vote , I could be wrong but Texas needs to be the one to get the party started ……..the rest will follow , but there needs to be a leader to get it started and to me Texas is the logical choice . I dont care who does it as long as it gets done .

      • According to, Albertsons is closing all of their western states stores………..

        • That is weird , I dont know how they are in other states , but here in AZ . it doesn’t surprise me as they are not very popular as it is , safeway and fry’s pretty much dominate , then you throw in the more specialty stores like sprouts and trader joes , s on top of that . It may be they are just cutting a loosing proposition . Office supply stores are the same way in the fact that some tend to dominate regions of the country more than others do .

    • SurvivorDan says:

      “and a purge of liberals may come to pass ,” ……..hmmmm.

  6. Gold and silver are already money and have been for thousands of years (Ben Bernanke dissenting). 13 states are considering making it currency, in other words legal tender.

  7. MrSpud in ID says:

    Just read, “Will Obama Keep Power ‘by Any Means Necessary”. Wow! I think everyone should take a look! Everything i’ve been trying to tell friends and family, all laid out for them to read! And best of all, it’s not me in my “tinfoil” hat telling them! Sending them all an e-mail with this inclosed! Thanks to whoever posted this article!! Very powerful, and terrifing, and unfortunatly right on target!
    Step up the prepping my friends, looks like it won’t be long now! God helps those who helps themselves! Stay the course Wolf pack, and good luck to us all!

  8. What I am thinking about reports like these (of all the bad things in our foodstuffs) is that we’ve come to this pass because of the practices of our current big-AG biz, IE: GMOing, heavy fertilizing and insecticiding (with stronger and stronger chemicals), mono-farming (more farming of one crop and growing it over and over, like corn), and who knows what else. And then in the processing and packaging of the foods today, there are more chems than before. As recent as when I was a kid, foods were more ‘natural’ overall than they are now. And my father talks all the time about how different the foods of today TASTE than they did before. Of course, that might have something to do with his elder taste buds, but he has a point I think.

    So…I’m thinking bad elements like arsenic can increase in our crops because we over-farm in so many ways. Kinda like how our infrastructure is declining in a way. We’re just continuing to USE everything up.

    But….perhaps the arsenic in the rice we eat could give us some immunity to POISONING by arsenic???? Just a thought. 🙂 People sometimes ingest small amounts of certain poisons to gain some resistance to being poisoned. It’s called: Mithridatism. On WIKI:

  9. mountain lady says:

    Tinfoil hat on: For what this is worth and I cannot even remember where I heard or read this, this morning. A gun seller, and I think one that sells at shows, had a friend who works for big sis and told his friend to stay close to home the month of October. I think most of us in the pack are pretty much doing this anyway. Between now and the election, anything can happen, and something seems to be in the works.

  10. Justsomeguy says:

    Found this in Enola Gay’s site. Don’t know if many of you know her but the lady is a thinker. The whole post for today is rather deep and well put.

    “The future that we are raising our children to govern is unstable. The dollar is losing its value, our embassies are going up in flames and unemployment is at record levels. Nearly half of the American population absorbs government assistance in one form or another. A college education has ceased to guarantee employment, yet positions requiring skilled tradesmen remained unfilled due to a lack of qualified applicants. The measure of success has gone from “Are you a Doctor” to “Do you have a job?”.

  11. Mt Woman. If the big farmers did a thing called crop rotation the soil would be in better shape and the produce would be better also.

    • Okay, I went to just about every site listed above and now I am really depressed.

      A Mom arrested for letting her children play – with her in the yard? I hope she wins the lawsuit – especially against that idiot neighbor who called the police and lied to them…and got away with it.

      Obama prepared to win “Any Means Possible”??? God help us. Please!

      The study about the GMO corn was enlightening…although they didn’t say the mice glowed in the dark, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

      Sure am glad God is in control. Without Him there is no hope, no hope for us individually, for our communities or our country.

    • Weird…why did my previous post end up here???

      Axelsteve, I believe the big farmers have lost all common sense. I would go so far as to say “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing the same way over and over, and expecting a different outcome.”

      When you have an accountant telling the farmers what and how to plant, this is what you get.

      The old Biblical rule of letting the land rest for a year every seven years is a valid one. At the end of the 6th year, plant a cover crop and let it rest.

  12. Tactical G-Ma says:

    Just listened to TDL give speech about attacks on embassies abroad. I swear to you, the first five minutes sounded just like the script for Nicolai Cardasian in the movie “Left Behind”. Now, I’m not a big believer of End-of-Days but it made the hair on my arms and neck stand straight up. I think he just may have offended just about everyone in the world except American bleeding hearts.
    ‘Nuff said!

    • Tactical G-Ma, that is just darn creepy. Makes me want to dig out those books, but I think I sold them when the last son finished the series. They were a good read, and quite plausible. The closer we get to the end times, the more the future seems like fiction.

  13. SurvivorDan says:

    They had to change their name to ‘progressives’ as ‘liberal’ became a pejorative and they were ashamed to be labeled such. Liberals chose ‘moderates’ or ‘progressives’ as a new label and identifier. When you have to claim a different label ‘cuz the old one became a dirty word, you should reexamine your philosophy.
    They will get what is coming to them if they persist in this takeover and reshaping of America. They have hardened my heart towards them and their ilk. I won’t shed a tear during a purge.

  14. Its a crying shame that everybody here and people in general have to even have worries about these things …………..its a sad commentary about our forefathers vision allowed to go to crap . We the people only have ourselves to blame for letting it get so out of control . perhaps if it gets bad enough ..Jefferson will be proven correct and we the people will restore what was lost ……..if the nation has to split …….then thats what it takes .
