This is just a little rambling from the heart. I hope you enjoy and even expound on it with your thoughts.
I do not feel dread or real fear about what I think is coming, but I do have some apprehension (which, I know is a form of fear). The apprehension is
mainly because of the unknown. Like several of you, I think we are in for some big changes in this country, and I have felt it most strongly for the
last week or so.
I had a long conservation with my Dad on Sunday who lives several states away from me, and he feels it too. He is too young to remember the Great
Depression, but grew up in a post World War II environment. They saved everything that could be saved. If something couldn’t be fixed, it was
recycled. Wood, screws, newspaper, jars, cans, bent nails, etc. were saved and reused. He still is that way to some degree. We came to the
conclusion that it is greed that got America to this point, and greed will take us to the next step in de-evolution. I told him that if the SHTF,
we’d be heading his way, and he said, “Come on!”
We, as a whole, have become a wasteful society of “haves and wants” vs. a society of “needs” and “have nots”. I’m not really speaking
about the preppers, self sustainers, and survivalists, but about the masses of DGI’s (don’t get it) out there. When I talk to my friends and
coworkers about the possible coming troubles, I can tell that most are under the spell (or deception, if you choose.) These are conservative and
educated professionals, and they cannot see through the manipulation and the deceit being propagandized to them every day. The conversations usually
devolve quickly and end with them coughing up a hairball from the MSM, like, “but the economy is improving,” or, “housing problems are at the
bottom.” They don’t see our liberties being taken away
I end the conversation by shaking my head, and moving on to greener topics.
