How Safe Are We Really?
There are so many scams out there right now. It seems that people will believe anything they hear, read, or see. Just about everyone out there without a soul is trying to cash in on the scared. You have my favorite person Glenn Beck trying to sell anything he can to make people feel safe. Pretty much anyone on Fox News that sold their soul to the network is selling everything they can. While advertising is something you have to do to make money, they are going above and beyond.
Although one thing that seems inevitable is that our dollar is losing value. The way our lovely government is printing money like it's going out of style should be your first clue. The next clue is gas prices. Lets be real, the price of gas always goes up when the holidays come around. This year was the highest I have ever seen them. They went back down, but not much. They are still up from what they were before the holidays. There is a rumor going around that it will be up to $5.00 per gallon. Which I think is highly possible. They are talking about raising minimum wage from the federal standard of $7.25 an hour to $9.50 per hour. This isn't set in stone, but it's being talked about. It is highly unlikely for any Republican senator to vote for that.
So everyone should be aware that printing money wildly is not a smooth move. If you know nothing of the Federal Reserve there is one thing you should know. When it started back in 1913 it was all about the gold. Our money was backed by how much gold the reserve held. I'm sure everyone has heard of our rising deficit. Right now our national debt is 14 trillion dollars. This means that we have 14 trillion less in gold then dollars in circulation. Basically, our debt is not a good thing, it makes the dollar pretty much useless. It will be, so when you hear these idiots (anyone on Fox News) talking about buying gold they are actually right for a change. Unfortunately that is one thing I do agree with. Just don't buy from Goldline. You can get gold and other precious metals in other ways. Goldline charges you way more then value, this shouldn't be. You can and should buy Gold, Silver, Platinum, etc. at close to current market value.
These gas prices are rising like crazy, a light bulb should be going off above your head. Lets just say that inflation happens. The rates that it has been happening over the last 5 years are pretty unreasonable if you have been paying attention. Everything is going up, not just gas. If you ever grocery shop it's apparent there as well. I buy mainly the same things when I shop and most things have doubled or even tripled in cost. This is a problem, mainly for the people who are on unemployment. If you think that is a decent wage you are highly mistaken. People on unemployment at the top pay in my state is $531 and that's if you made over 21k in a quarter (3 months) with a spouse and one or more children. That's a pretty low amount for someone who made over 5k per month. So let's take someone who made a wage of $500 per week. They will get $321 per week. That isn't even enough to pay most mortgages. These people are getting royally screwed. Our new congress didn't even want to give these people an extension. It's really quite sad. If that extension didn't happen think of all the crime that could be happening. It still may happen if this inflation doesn't slow down.
Why do you think they are talking about making minimum wage higher? Best answer, because the cost of living is dramatically rising. So it's currently set in federal standards at $7.25 an hour. Exactly how does anyone expect to live on that. When gas prices rise to $5.00 per gallon these people will be able to get to work and pay their taxes. That will be pretty much it. What money could they possibly have left over. My state (Illinois) has a higher rate then what federal standards are, but even then it's almost impossible to eat on that kind of hourly income. People wonder why welfare is so high. It's pretty easy to figure out if you think for five minutes. It's not hard to do, stop playing video games, get off your phone, and stop watching stupid meaningless crap on television. We are being kept in the dark, and every one of the consumers are letting them do it to us.
I have a few suggestions that can help. In the coming months/years there will be a fall in this country. There will be riots, robbery, food shortages, water shortages, it's going to happen. If you don't want to believe it, that's fine, but you will see it happen before your very eyes. Be prepared, don't go buy Beck products. That's just stupid. Although, you should have some plans set in place. Especially if you are in an Urban area. That will be the first to get hit. I suggest getting a firearm. Even though I'm not a crazy, Republican, gun nut. I do believe you should own a gun. It's for protection, but be smart about it. Lock that thing up away from kids, drunks, and morons. (you may want to keep it from your spouse as well) Have a place to go if the shit hits the fan. I'm being very serious when I say that. You may want to stock up on food, water, and medical supplies as well. Some people will think I sound like a raving lunatic, but this will go down. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but in the near future it will. Everyone should be prepared. I also suggest getting your hands on things to trade. Gold, Silver, Platinum, anything that would be worth something. Not your Xbox unfortunately there will be no use for your stupid crap. So please be safe people, because when the shit goes down, you shouldn't be clueless. Maybe, I am crazy, but hey if it happens I'll be prepared and my family will be safe. Hopefully you and yours will be too. Remember the law that is in affect as well, the government has the right to use our military against us. Why do you think they would pass that law?
This is the section of the constitution and it's wording:
Article 1, Section 9 states, "The privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.
Sleep well everyone, you'll sleep better if you have some kind of fire arm, I guarantee it. Just so you're aware the government has a right to come and take any registered gun from you.
