FK – At the end of the day ‘conservatives’ and ‘libertarians,’ those with actual money, care more about their money than their ’cause’ and will probably fail to congeal and create a platform to replace YouTube which is owned by google which is evil whose newer ‘parent company’ Alphabet is ran by a piece of schitt that worked to get hitlery in the now red house.
We are war but too many are still in denial of that reality.
Another version, sub-version or subversion for millions or billions to waste their lifetimes trying to interpret?
Until we have some ‘proof’ that this is a game that really doesn’t matter, and too many already act as such now, we need to keep fighting to establish Liberty on this prison planet. Maybe that’s the real reason we’re here.
Here’s the vid:
FK – So when do I get my holodeck, on a starship, or a starship on my holodeck?
So maybe our ‘creators’ evolved into the ‘perfect’ species with the ‘perfect’ society/culture and then got bored with it and our bodies are their avatars? I want a re-boot.
I think this may be the real problem:
FK – The real problem is most cannot imagine living in a free society. It scares them shitless.
FK – We went through this back in the 90s. We were told to use collodial silver and go to the farm store and buy the antibiotics for animals as they worked as well on us. All fine and dandy. But here we are 20 years later and the world didn’t end. Here we are in a post Y2K, 9/11, planet x(sorry, that one’s still out there, somewhere, maybe) Mayan calendar, earth changes, and on and on world.
There are probably dozens of ways we could be sent back to the horse and buggy days. If it’s a ‘stone age’ scenario, guess what, no prepper can prep for that, except maybe by being young, healthy, in fighting form, willing to kill anything and anyone in any way and learning to flint knap and make moccasins from possum hide. If any significant portion of the population is forced to survive like a country boy for any significant amount of time they’ll soon be eating each other, simple fact.
So in reality we need to focus on the things we can change that might be ‘human caused’ uh, ‘grid down’ situations. Is the black hole(s) that is/are our government(s) prepped to re-establish the grid and the interstates, which are this country’s lifelines, and whatever else and doing it in a manner that wouldn’t involve martial law? Would ‘we the people’ be served properly in such a situation or ‘they the commie/globalist elites?’
These are the questions that matter.
The most important thing to store is a copy of the Bill of Rights, the document that makes us exceptional. Without that no human has a future worth considering. Currently a re-established Bill of Rights is what it will take to ‘make America great again.’ And for the record, if it’s not OK for our governments to treat us like jackasses then it’s not OK for our employers to treat us so. But too many are too stupid to see this.
FK – This is about the last ‘financial’ warning/advisor/the end is coming soon thing I waste, uh, spend any time on. I got tired of hearing Celente et al say ‘April’ or ‘next year.’ I expected 2008 fallout to be far worse.
The next one, uh big one, whatever, will feature high ammo and cheap slaves. Food will be whatever you can catch. But then I’ve been hearing that most of my adult life from the ‘The Day After’ to ‘The Road.’ My fav was ‘A Boy and hIs Dog.‘He kept his priorities straight.
And I have no respect for those who profit from others’ misery. A few years back a ‘friend’ made an offhand comment that buying people’s property on the courthouse steps because they couldn’t pay their property taxes would be a good way to make money.
“People who do that deserve to be shot,” was my answer to him. He gave me a look and shut up.
FK – Mine is larger and does have a change of clothing because I travel hundreds of miles on my ‘commutes.’ Cotton and modern textiles will rot off or wear out after weeks or months in the outback. My goal would be not just covering ground but finding food and shelter on a regular basis because I’m not a spring chicken any more and wouldn’t expect to get home quickly unless I could ‘acquire’ a couple horses or mules.
My pack is a surplus army in multicam with a frame because I can’t afford the over-priced civy stuff and my back can’t take not having real support anymore. If things are ‘that bad’ you’d want to avoid major highways and built up areas anyway and hope you can stay hidden from over-zealous land owners. Remember, possums are your friends.
If things were ‘bad enough’ the focus might not be on ‘getting home’ so much as thinking globally and acting locally. I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.
FK – Cut my wet clothes off and I’ll be really pissed, especially if it’s that ridiculously overpriced cold/wet weather gear that I or someone else might need later.
Some of us aren’t rich and we can’t just go out and buy more on a whim. In a true ‘survival’ situation there might not be any more to buy. Don’t make me die twice. I’m not Hugh Glass.
Hypothermia can happen in 40-50 degree weather, especially if you’re wet. You haven’t been cold until your teeth are chattering uncontrollably, to the point it seems they could cut your tongue off if you stuck it between them.
Floyd Collins died from exposure years ago because of the weeks(or days accd. to Wikipedia but I don’t remember it that way) he spent trapped in a cave with others bringing him food and water.
I’ve seen people who travel for a living not even be smart enough to keep a sleeping bag or extra water in the vehicle.
And everyday street or work wear is not good enough:
FK – You absolutely do not want to wear cotton clothing in winter weather. You need things that will wick moisture away from your skin. There are modern materials and even ancient ones that are must haves for this time of year.
FK – Wool will allegedly keep you warm even when wet. I haven’t tested this. I’m told there are certain types of wool such as Merino wool that will not itch as badly as the ‘wooly pullys‘ they issued us in the Marine Corp. Those things feel like ants against bare skin. That’s why I prefer the more modern materials the military is issuing now a days.
Much of this gear can be bought at local military surplus stores. Do a search and see if there’s one near you. I usually go to Radcliff, KY near Fort Knox and Clarksville, TN., near Fort Campbell.
