I have not had much time to read, let alone post this past couple of weeks, but did make time to read the news and listen to the radio when I could. And, I have nothing more profound to say than what has already been said by others and myself many times over. But, I would like everyone to watch these two videos and then read the article that will be linked after.

OK, it is time to read some more:
The Revolution Was
by Garet Garrett
There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.
There are those who have never ceased to say very earnestly, "Something is going to happen to the American form of government if we don't watch out." These were the innocent disarmers. Their trust was in words. They had forgotten their Aristotle. More than 2,000 years ago he wrote of what can happen within the form, when "one thing takes the place of another, so that the ancient laws will remain, while the power will be in the hands of those who have brought about revolution in the state."
Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern.
But it could not be so embarrassed and all that line was wasted, because, in the first place, it never intended to make that kind of sense, and secondly, it took off from nothing that was implicit in the American scheme. It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technic it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake.
The test came in the first one hundred days.
Pay close attention to exactly what is happening now and just be prepared. Yes, nearly all of us are no where near ready, but this is like telling a pregnant woman that she needs to get ready for child birth.
If you live way back in the hills, good for you- if not preparations that include water & food (cached appropriately), clothing, footwear, packs to carry your goods when needed, dry powder, lead, and the tools to hurl it. Stuffs that barter and trade well, you know shiny things, are good too.
Call me an alarmist, call me sensible, call me Whose Paranoid but you make your own mind up- I made mine a long time ago...
