What Are YOU Going to Do When everything Collapses?

If you are reading this, you have some basic understanding of what is really happening in the economy, the military industrial complex, and the corrupt international banking cartel, otherwise known as the Federal Reserve System. Hopefully, you are fairly well read (still have a pile of reading to do), have done your homework (youtube) and otherwise. You have turned off the main stream media, have listened to the message of the few respectable, honest voices in our legislature, like Ron Paul, and are listening to the words and heading the advice of notable people like Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Gerald Celente, etc...The dollar is doomed to fail and the inevitable collapse will come, regardless of what the socialists and communists that have co-opted our government attempt to do. The simple analogy is that, it is like trying to prop up the Guinness World Record house of cards, in a steadily increasing wind. Good luck! You can only manipulate the markets and stave off the inevitable for so long. We will continue to see record foreclosures, loan and credit card defaults, job losses, store closings, more homeless in tent cities, civil unrest, and eventually more government intervention, regulation, and fascist restrictions on all aspects of life, in the name of saving the worldwide economy, and for our security.

My question to you, "What are YOU going to do when the "you know what" hits the fan?! Is your house in order? Have you stocked up on essentials and staples? Have you paid down your debt? Can you weather losing your job? In the event of losing the lion share of your income, can you keep a roof over your family's head? Do you know how to, and do you have a place to grow food? Can you fish and hunt? Can you stay warm through this winter and the next two, or three, or more? I could pose a dozen more questions, but I won't. Hopefully, you get my drift.

If you still need help, the November or number 10 issue of "Republic" magazine has a great check list of the first 100 items to disappear in a calamity. Go to and get with the program!

The Boston Tea Party revisited...Granny Get yur guns!

Tomorrow, December 16th, commemorates the 235th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Angered by a series of events including The Stamp Act of 1765, The Townsend Acts of 1767, the Boston Massacre in 1770, the colonies were ripe with rebellion.Ultimately, the crown's creation of the monopoly, the East India Company, pushed the colonists to take matters into their own hands, literally. The colonists had refused to pay the levies imposed by the Townsend Acts. They contended that they had no obligation to pay, as they had no representation in Parliament. Ultimately, the taxes were repealed, with the exception of the duty on tea, a daily staple in colonial life. The crown had craftily created the scenario that would allow the East India Company to "dump" low cost tea on the colonies at prices cheaper than they had previously experienced. While this should have been enticing to the colonists, this low price tea came with a hefty hidden cost. By accepting the tea complete with its duty from the East India Company, the colonists would, by default, submit to taxation by Parliament. No taxation without representation. We all know what happened next...

Yesterday, December 14, 2008 I had the honor of attending the Boston Tea Party 2008, organized by the Committees of Safety. The event included a breakfast with the patriotic speakers and about a five hour assembly with each of them sharing their very noteworthy and thought provoking views on the state of our republic. I want to say thank you to the organizers Bob Dwyer and Walter Reddy, the Committees of Safety, Tom the Master of Ceremonies, Mike Nystrom of fame, and of course all of the attendees. I am proud to have been in the company of these fine patriots and supporters of the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights. Which are as we all know the ultimate law of the land. Much of the conversation and of course the topic of the speeches given centered around these founding documents and our founding fathers intent. It was truly an educational and inspirational experience. You can read Mike Nystrom's thoughts and recap on the event at

In the spirit of keeping the momentum alive, I would like to remind everyone that today, December 15th, is the anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, known to us patriots as Bill of Rights Day. Not too big of a stretch, huh? Today's focus for me will center on the 2nd Amendment. This has been a hot topic, surrounded by controversy and heated debate from all sides of the legislative table. Unfortunately, most Americans do not understand the significance and importance of maintaining the RIGHT protected by this amendment. For all of us, there is now available a great resource on the 2nd amendment. A book released by noted author, Dr. Stephen P. Halbrook, titled The Founders’ Second Amendment: Origins of the Right to Bear Arms. I urge you to purchase and read this valuable documentary.

With your help, we can make Dr. Halbrook’s book #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. To make this happen, please go to the website and pledge to buy at least one copy of the book before or on the December 15th. And together let us declare in no uncertain terms, that the Second Amendment is ours, and here to stay!

Please help now by making your pledge here:

So Much (Mis)information...

I don't really know where to begin. I have been bombarded with misinformation. You have been bombarded with misinformation, from all angles, under assault from all fronts, newspaper, radio, television, movies, video games, music, musicians, socialists, leftists, environmentalists, conservatives, Neocons, teachers, coworkers, friends, family, the internet, corporate advertising, all branches and forms of government....I have spent years researching, learning, ingesting information from so many sources. Studying the founding fathers, the Constitution (the law of the land), governments, war, the origin and the policies U.N. and its affiliates, corruption, NGOs such as the Council on Foreign Relations, the major family foundations, The Federal Reserve, the economy, the rise and fall of nations, socialism, communism, capitalism...Searching for the TRUTH. I have tried to take it all in, and retain everything that i can, good, bad, or indifferent. In the process I have read mounds of documentation, piles of books, watched countless hours of video, had endless discussions, heated debates. Friendships have been forged, and friendships lost.

After all of these years, I have devoted my life to the cause of freedom. And through it all, I am still trying to make sense of the senseless; find reason when there is none, see order in chaos; find the truth between the lies; find hope in the hell of it all. I allocate as much time as I can to educating others, or trying to point them in the direction of the truth. I consider myself to be an optimist, but there are days when I feel as though it is just not enough. For 20+ years I have I packed my brain with historical fact, corroborated by countless sources, and regurgitated it over and over hoping to feed someone's brain other than mine. To pass the it on. Like an unread encyclopedia, I sit on the shelf, loaded, waiting for someone to open my pages so the information can spill out and I can unburden myself. There are days when I wish it, the truth, could all be held up in the light for ALL to see, and compared to the lies. I find myself wanting to shake people awake in public. In the grocery store, when I am discussing the price of pasta with a stranger, as I am filling my basket with the sale of the day. When we get strange looks as we are filling our carts with "necessities", discussing how the prices have shot up, and that inflation is right around the corner, hoping that whoever is in earshot takes the bait and "gets it"...All day, I try. And then, there are days where I just want to be left alone, where I feel like giving up on my fellow man, and just taking care of myself, and my own, preparing for what may come. Preparing for the worst, and praying for the best. it is then that I realize that I must press on, for my children and for yours. I will not stop, I will persevere. And I know, in the end, all that I truly have is my faith, and my family. I pray for their safety, and security but not at the price of our liberties. We will prevail, with God on our side...
