    That's what I'm thinking.

    But the one question that no one can really answer (unless you're psychic or something) is what will the straw be that breaks the camel's back and sends us into an Argentinian (or worse) SHTF??

    Yeah, that's really funny for a "conservative party" member, isn't it.

    Maybe he decided to read the COTUS and the Federalist Papers finally and has decided to side with liberty instead of tyranny, and he's just too embarrassed to admit it now.

    When the dollar is replaced as the worlds reserve currency I will go full throttle towards my final arrangements.

    Hold on a second...I need some education here...are you saying that worldwide countries back their currency, not with gold or something tangible, but with the US DOLLAR...which isn't backed by ANYTHING??

    What would the dollar be replaced with??... Earth-Bucks?!?

    Protesting for handouts. SOB, a guy did that to me once when I pulled to a stop sign in my pickup and I had to show him my 23...

    I don't think that there is anybody left to stand up for institutions of our society against the non working class so this could get a little sporty.

    There are more than a few nations holding the US Dollar as their reserve currency and without US money, their whole economy would collapse.

    Mexico, Philippines, and other high remittance nations depend on our dollars to survive. China also holds a great deal of US Dollars in reserve but now they are moving to gold, as did India.

    Anybody happen to see the report about all the RVs and Motor homes and trucks in Venice, CA.

    The people who owned homes there were complaining because of all the trash, human waste, and other objectionable materials be littered around and in their yards.

    One guy said if you don't want us crapping in your yard get a porta-potty. If you can afford paying 1200 rent you can afford to get a porta-potty. LOL!

    I thought my wife was gonna have a cow she said I'll give him a potty a Black Talon up his you know what! LOL!

    It's the entitlement mentality that our 'spread the wealth around' President is promoting!

    I did see this. I can understand some people are genuinely homeless...well except for a tent or an RV. Nothing wrong with that so long as they are at least trying to support themselves. But there's no excuse for the "if you don't like me crapping in your yard then buy me a toilet" mentality. Crapping in someone's yard is wrong/illegal...well unless you're a squirrel. But I know a LOT of people that love to shoot squirrels. You want to act like a squirrel, people might treat you like one...

    Dewd,I can't do the work for you.You live up in PA and we live in W/NC.You see what's going on there and we see what's going on here.Then we got the national level,we both see/read that.So how the quack am I gonna help you with yours or us with ours?.

    I've said this before and looks like I need ta say it again,the dynamic of "preps" is that your AO is different than our AO.So you havta plan/equip for your area,granted if your in w/PA we have the same type of topographical features,the population density and location ta you are more than likely a wee bit different than they are too us.Natural resources and a ton of other things may skew "our" plans.

    There is no "perfect" plan and or scenario.........'08.

    No,I was making a reference towards that type of "you" owe us mentality.Don't get "tunnel" vision and miss the forest for the trees.

    This happened "where",can "it" will "it" happen here.'08.
