What's your plan.... - Part 6

[QUOTE=Ringo;224794][SIZE=3][FONT=Georgia]Big brother could care less about the small stuff.[/FONT][/SIZE][/QUOTE]

No doubt, however, wide scale civil unrest and economic collapse scenarios are part of the Pentagon's strategic planning. I have nothing to hide. There isn't anything that can be said on this forum that isn't already part of their planning. Yeah, they can trace IP addresses, etc, but they're after the guys printing their own money, and stuff that challenges their world system.

Remember how expensive long distance telephone service used to be? Well, back in the early days of silicon valley, those guys had a device that would basically steal long distance service by hacking the automated switches through the use of dial tones. Getting caught with one of the those devices was punishable by up to life in prison. For what, stealing long distance service?

Corporations own the government, and want to own us. Not unlike the leaders of the temple in Jesus' day, or the artisans in Ephesus who wanted to stone Paul for preaching God. Any challenge to their racket. Well, their racket is coming to an end, of their own doing. Yet, they would maintain status quo at any cost, including the starvation of whole populations of people.

This is what we'll be seeing over the next year, potentially here in the US. This is what the government is planning for, and every person should be planning for as well, being as self sufficient as possible. Buying a little extra food each week, rotating stock, and planning for the possibility of a disruption in the supply chain. Water filtration, home defense, and all of the things necessary to sustain life, should it become untenable to venture out to procure these items. I hope it doesn't come to that, but if it does, my guns are the only thing between me and being robbed and killed, so it's highly unlikely I would willingly give them up, any more than anything else I've gathered for my own survival.

My plan is to survive the first few weeks, or months of any civil unrest or economic collapse. In fact, an armed militia is a better defense against civil unrest than all the strategic planning in the Pentagon lumped together. Civil unrest is going to occur in pockets of poverty that were formed by the creation of the welfare state in the first place, and aren't going away until the welfare state ends, anyway. So, it's their problem, not mine from the start. With god's help, I'll take care of myself.

That's enough for today, cheers and god bless!

What's your plan.... - Part 5

[QUOTE=Ringo;224069]Our hope is not in the second coming of Christ, but in the "blessed hope" referencing the Rapture.[/QUOTE]

I call it Hope, you call it Blessed Hope. I say second coming of Christ, you say Rapture. We're talking about the same thing.

I prefer to use words the way the bible using them, and in that respect, I do have my facts straight and thank you for the admonishment, lest we forget.

How does all of this apply to the original topic? Let's see, we all want to be on the side of righteousness and truth, right? Jesus says to render unto ceasar that which is due ceasar, and unto God the things that are of God. Disobeying an illegal order is the right thing to do, anyone would agree, so even where the government to attempt confiscation of personal property without due process, it would be illegal.

"As it is written,

"For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." (Romans 8:36-37 ESV)

What a striking example Paul was to his followers. Jesus endured more than any man who ever lived, or ever will live. None of us has ever had to endure the kind of persecution which even Paul endured. Not is peacetime, anyway.

Yet, even the disciples of Christ were armed. Peter cut the ear off of one of the temple soldiers sent to arrest Jesus, and Jesus healed that man's ear.

We are not counted as sheep for the slaughter, but if we give up our arms, we would be. Therefore, I would consider it an act of civil disobedience to refuse to follow an unconstitutional order to surrender my firearms.

You've probably heard this story, Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. Freedom is a well armed sheep contesting the vote! Our system of government was formed to protect our freedom. If government fails, we can always form another one. If we lose our freedom, I suppose we could regain it, but at what cost?

The world doesn't owe anyone a living, yet there are those who feel entitled to what others have worked for. The time is coming when it will have to be taken by force, because no one is going to willingly hand over the fruits of their own labor, when they themselves need it to survive. It's not possible, mathematically anyway, for our government to meet all of it's obligations, and when it is no longer able, it will default on those obligations. So what, I don't depend on the government to survive. Yet many do, and more. There are many who depend on the government, and the force of government to not only survive, but enrich themselves, to the detrimenet of all.

With one five families on federal food assistance, our nation is in crisis. But, I don't hear Obama talking about what a disaster our economy has become, or talk about how to get people off food stamps. The answer is put them to work, but crony capitalism has sent our jobs overseas.

We need a president who will stand up to these idiots in Washington, who have screwed up a perfectly good country in the name of corporate profit. The last time I checked, the constitutional role of government was to promote the general welfare, not corporate profit. The pursuit of profit conflicts with general welfare, or wealth, by concentrating wealth in the hands of a few, not the more.

We need elected officials who will stand up to the corporate way of doing things, and call these wolves in sheep clothing out for what they are.

We need men and women to stand up for what is right, to offer a hand, not a hand out.

We need to return this country to the principles upon which is was founded, rugged individualism, not corporate elitism.

Do you want to know why the deficit is so high? In 1980, the year Ronald Reagan took office, corporations paid about half of the federal tax receipts. Since then, lobbyists have convinced Congress to reduce the amount of taxes they pay to about 5% of tax receipts. The rest is made up by deficit spending.

You can call the last 30 years the "Rise of the Corporation". Illuminists call it "the company", and the war of this century will be against such as these.

What's your plan.... - Part 4

I've recently stated to a colleague at work discussing preps, "I'm a christian first and foremost, and I hope that Christ returns before it gets too bad", only because if the Devil has his way, it will be hell.

The Devil knows the truth of God's word, he quoted God a number of times in tricking Eve and tempting Christ, the only two people to whom he's shown himself in person.

What doe's God say about the truth and devil? "Thou believest that God is one; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and shudder." (James 2:19 ESV)

You're correct that we live in a crooked and perverse generation (Acts 2:14) and that evil men will wax worse and worse in the last days (2 Tim 3:13), however, in the context of 2 Tim, God contrasts the characteristics of evil men, with that of men who believe God, "that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:17) and by contrast, overcome evil men.

There are many times, Jesus Christ himself said "fear not", so while I agree with you about what self professed Christians do, none of us is perfect. But, we have a perfect example in Christ, and we encourage one another to uphold the high standard and high calling of Christ.

We have the hope of the return of Christ, his second coming. In the meantime, I believe for the best and prepare for the worst, because, we don't know when Christ will return, but we know for a certainty he will, so does the Devil.

All of the events that are occurring, since just before 2000, with droughts, rolling brown outs, the dot com recession, just as we were beginning to recover from the recession, the 9/11 attacks (false flag?), 2008 global financial crisis, fukushima, earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, all of these things, some man made, some not, I believe they are part of a conspiracy to destroy the truth, indeed as there has been since Lucifer rebelled in heaven, and that there is a main conspirator, the Devil.

It seems to me events are unfolding more quickly, facilitated by technology, however, the word of truth can be disseminated more quickly, as well. So, while it is a fact that we live in interesting times, and it can be fearful, we can take comfort in the 23rd Psalm, and a well built, American made, Smith and Wesson, Colt, Browning, or any of a host of reliable firarms, and the readiness, willingness, and ability to use them in defense of our families and loved ones. Let the enemy fear that.

What's your plan.... - Part 3

There have been lots of replies to this thread, which was an open ended question about what if the government tried to take your guns.

It's unlikely the feds would attempt confiscation of firearms during a period of normalcy, but if martial law or worse were to be declared, disarmament and pacification of the populace would be a top priority.

It happened in New Orleans, and the cops basically became the criminals. During a breakdown of social order is exactly when you do need your firearms, and had to be the intent of the 2nd Amendment, as well as to prevent the undue intrusion of government in the lives of it's citizens.

The federal government has taken on a life of it's own because of runaway federal deficit spending. Jimmy Carter was the last president to attempt to take on the bureaucracy in DC. Ron Paul would take them on, no doubt as he has for 20 years, even though I know very little about him. Rick Perry is looking like a viable candidate, however, if he only talks the talk, like Reagan, he's the last thing we need.

As a nation, we are in for a period of severe instability, because people don't have jobs. There are two opposing forces at work, the so-called liberals who want to enslave, and the so-called conservatives, who also want to enslave. Then there are a few individuals who haven't become jaded by national politics, and haven't sold out to the establishment. What the conservatives and liberals fail to realize is we are at war with the banking cartel, and are willing to sell us out for a bribe. This conspiracy is so vast that spineless GWB went along with a bailout for the very entities what conspire to control us, only proving the Bush family is part of the consipiracy. Maybe they don't realize it, but they're working for the chief consipirator, the Devil.

Thankfully, the founding fathers understood the important of self reliance and self determiniation, defensible by force. This nation is one of the few, if not the only nation where the right to keep and bear arms is a right. Any attempt to subvert that right is an attempt to take away our freedom, however crafty or subtle.

What's your plan.... - Part 2

That's exactly why I propose retiring the debt by assessing every individual and corporation a percentage of net worth as part of a balanced budget amendment. We will still be paying for the failed welfare state for the next 50 years, but we'll be doing that anyway. Otherwise, service on the debt will continue to increase as debt increases, and you'll have to cut transfer payments for things like social security and medicare, services people depend on to live. No one depends on interest on treasury bills, that can't be earned on some other investment. Sure, no one wants to pay 10 - 20% of their net worth to pay off the national debt. Maybe they would rather the US default on it's debt, or turn senior citizens out on the street. I'm sure they would.

Eliminating the debt, and the deficit will also revive the job market by reducing the competition for goods and services from the public sector, which is increasingly consuming everything. However, you can't contract public spending by balancing the budget without wreaking havoc on the economy. You have to cut somewhere, and what I'm suggesting is that you start with interest payment on the debt, by paying it off.

You also can't default on the debt, because real people depend on the income from treasury bills. If you pay off treasury bills as they become due, those same people and institutions can invest their money elsewhere, and do more good with it. Our government doesn't need to be in the business of guaranteeing interest income, and harms, rather than helps promote the general welfare, which is a constitutional mandate of our federal government, by taking money out of the private sector, and competing with the private sector for goods and services.

I have thought a good deal about this issue, and came up with the idea shortly after graduating from a 4 year land grant university in the 1980's with a degree in economics, and researching the amount of national net worth, which at that time was around $100T. If we were to follow this proposal, and it worked, it would solve the problem of sovereign debt, and restore the national economies of indebted nations, of which we're at the top of list in absolute terms, and in the top ten by percentage of GDP.

Rethinking my proposal isn't necessary because I've thought a good bit about it. I didn't understand your objection to it, rather, it seems you were agreeing with it by correctly stating the interest on the national debt will continue to increase as the debt increases. That money is better spent elsewhere, even though we still must have a balanced budget amendment to the US Constitution in order to reign in out of control federal deficit spending.

My vote for POTUS in 2012 will be Ron Paul.

What's your plan.... - Part 1

We could pay off the national debt by assessing every individual and corporation with assets in the US, a percentage of net worth, with a balanced budget amendment to the constitution, requiring a super majority to raise taxes or issue debt in times of declared emergency. We still have to deal with entitlements, and retiring seniors for the next 50 years, but the interest savings on retiring the debt would go a long way.

It may be the only way of restoring the US economy and bringing back jobs. The reason being is that public spending has effectively crowded out the private sector. Contracting the public sector by the amount of deficit spending will allow the private sector to recover. A public sector contraction without retiring the national debt would send the US into a death spiral, because otherwise you're cutting other spending that ordinary people depend on for their livelihood. No one depends on US Treasury interest, that can't be re-invested somewhere else. That is all, for now.

The text of this post has been sent to North Carolina Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr, and Congressman Brad Miller.

Voter backlash is coming. The FSA will have their choice of well established liberal candidates from which to choose. The true liberals are the Libertarian party, who want freedom from government, but have never garnered more than a few percent of the popular vote, because most people want their stuff without paying for it.

Ron Paul is the best choice right now for stopping the free stuff parade. There are only tough choices left in dealing with unfunded entitlements. Neither so called conservatives nor so called liberals have demonstrated any capacity to deal with out of control federal deficit spending. We can either slow down and stop, or hit the wall at 120 mph.

In Raleigh, NC, the big spending mayor who is not running for re-election, is defending over $1B debt, which has quadrupled in 10 years by pointing out most is paid for with fees and not property taxes. While he has a point, constrained spending should be the order of the day. The city budget has probably doubled in the last ten years, as well, so the debt picture isn’t the whole story.

With revenues decreasing, city leaders are loathe to give up the standard of living to which they have grown accustomed, so it’s citizens must give up theirs.

We’ll see if we actually make it to election day, 2012, without widespread riots. Extended unemployment and more families on food assistance will mitigate civil unrest, while the looting and plundering of America by the top one percent continues unabated. Where will the next crack in the foundation appear? There is a critical mass at which all hell breaks loose and most everyone is dependent on the same supply chain for basic necessities. When the politicians in DC feel the pinch, they will act, and even then, their’s is a broken system of corruption. When they lose control, and they will, it’s a mathematical certainty, it may be too late.

We could pay off the national debt by assessing every individual and corporation with assets in the US, a percentage of net worth, with a balanced budget amendment to the constitution, requiring a super majority to raise taxes or issue debt in times of declared emergency. We still have to deal with entitlements, and retiring seniors for the next 50 years, but the interest savings on retiring the debt would go a long way.

RECESSION A CERTAINTY « The Burning Platform

What do you mean the Emperor is wearing no clothes? It’s hard to fathom, considering markets have long run global trade, through thick and thin, that of a perfect storm, if even there is such a thing.

The fourth turning is merely a crisis in leadership. I will stake my claim in the truth, and know that I was known before the foundations of this world, made a little higher than the angels, of which lucifer was one.

The world will be a better place when it is a much simpler life. If it takes the return of Jesus Christ, so be it. Come, Lord Jesus, come!

Tottenham Riots - Coming to Your Town Soon?

There's another thread running about the mob riots in Wisconsin, apparently the same stuff happened over the fourth of July, now the state fair. It's happened in Chicago, and more recently in Philadelphia, and occurs regularly in NYC, where it was first called "wilding", now "flash mobs". We've also seen it in recent memory in New Orleans (2005) and LA (1991).

These most recent riots are hate crimes and terrorism, by definition.

Unfortunately, there isn't a lot you can do about it, except stay out of their neighborhoods. If there is a disruption in the supply chain, whether it be economic instability, or fuel, or pandemic, or other natural or man made disaster, if aliens land, or the mother of all asteroids hits earth, and Jesus Christ hasn't returned first, then it will be everyone person for themselves first, then it will be neighbor helping neighbor as they are able.

Grocery stores will run out of essentials faster then Greg Fischel can forecast a light dusting of snow. Therefore, it is every person's responsibility to store several weeks, if not months worth of food, even if it's spaghetti noodles and canned spaghetti sauce.

My wife and I started "prepping" a couple of years ago, and I sleep a lot better at night knowing I can survive at least six months against a zombie invasion. But not alone. Neighbors should team up, and worst case, have a plan to get out of dodge if lawlessness becomes the order of the day. Most likely, however, martial law will be declared, and you should be ok during the day in your own neighborhood, if you have food, water, and the ability to defend yourself, even if it's a shotgun and a box of #6's. You may want to spring for a few more boxes, as you stock up on food and water, as well.

That's how you deal with riotous crowds, stay away from them, and keep them out of your neighborhood. A few Koreans with only small arms kept rioters away from there stores. It shouldn't be too difficult to keep them out of your neighborhood, even if you have to set up barricades, and stand guard. But, you don't want to be stranded with no food, water, or defensive capability, either.
