Now would be a good time to begin preparing for a currency collapse. The state of VA is exploring the possibility of printing it's own money in the event of a total collapse of the dollar. Dont' believe me? Well, here ya go, and more states are thinking the same. Meanwhile, Congress is quietly discussing how insolvent states might legally declare bankrupcy. That is in addition to cities, counties, and municipalities being insolvent.

No, no, no. A currency collapse can't happen here, you say. Well, the math doesn't lie, but the government and media does. Stop being a tool and take steps to protect yourself.

The 2008 crash was just the beginning, the warning, the wake up call. We are on a fiscal highway to perdition. Our lives are about to change dramatically, some time in the relatively near future. At least that is my core conviction, especially now that the words "national debt" seem to be front and center now in the national conversation.

Preparedness is not a solitary event, a singular moment in time where you go to Wal-Mart and stock up on Spam and then forget about it for 10 years. No, it's a way of life that you choose to follow because you see past modern conveniences, knowing that they and our cushy lifestyle may one day disappear. It's a realization that our present reality is almost entirely predicated on unlimited resources and energy. The truth is, someone other than me once said, we are 9 meals away from anarchy.

You do what you want. This blog has been my sounding board about mental and physical preparedness, whether it be about guns or preps. As of this writing, I have lost most if not all but one reader I think, because I am not content to be another sheep bleating helplessly in the wind. My words are a downer for many for sure. Who wants to think about life in a lawless Shanty Town, the disappearance of the middle class, government corruption, bank holidays, rampant inflation, black marktets, and endless crime? I don't, but I have no choice, because that is a possible reality for us: an Argentina like fall from grace from which we may never fully recover.

Get your shit together. Go scare the piss out of yourself, if you haven't already, and visit Ferfal's blog. Start from the beginning. Look long and hard at the images of what's happening there right now and in the past few years and ask yourself if you could live like that.

The time is now to prep. The hourglass is nearly empty, and it may not get another turn.

Over and Out,

At least VA is thinking about the problem in a somewhat proactive fashion rather than raising taxes in the wee hours of the morning like a state to my West recently did.
Until there is no internet you will have at least one reader.
My next project is making some shelves for my food storage. I am glad to be able to say it is outgrowing the space it currently occupies.

Glad to hear some new shelves are on the way, and that there is good reason for this. I am looking forward to seeing them in May in addition to learning how to survive an edged weapon attack. Has the class filled up?

I am feeling more urgent than I have in a long time. May will be a good time for honing that sense of urgency into increased survival skill.

Thanks for keeping the comments section alive! :p

I just read that bill a little more. I see that Indiana gets a shout out. I like where VA is going with this, but unfortunately I now feel an even more urgent need to buy some silver coins. Proverbs 20:10 anyone?

To answer your question about the class, it is not yet full, but I suspect it will fill quickly after tax return season. There are five spots remaining.

Nick-dog said...

Yah, I gotta file my return before the currency collapses. LOL. That also means the scope, bipod and couple of other goodies here will be coming my way.

Glad to hear the class is nearly chock full. I know it will be well worth it, and I look forward to meeting Mercop!

I love the dicontentment that the government of Virginia feels right now. And it is echoed by so many other states, albeit much more quietly. How have you been Nick. It's been a while.
