SURVIVAL WAS NOT EASILY ACCOMPLISHED IN THE COLD MONTHS, SO MUCH HAD TO BE DONE BEFORE THE FIRST SNOW FLEW.
IT HAS ALWAYS SEEMED TO ME THAT WE WHO HAIL FROM INDIGENOUS STOCK HAVE BUILT-IN CLOCKS THAT BEGIN SOUNDING THE ALARM TO GET BUSY EACH SEPTEMBER.
AND SO, I MUST.
THIS YEAR, OUR ECONOMIC FORECAST IS FOREBODING.
MANY ARE WARNING THAT HARD FINANCIAL TIMES ARE UPON US AND SAY THE FEDERAL RESERVE SEEMS INTENT ON CRASHING AMERICA'S ALREADY SHAKY STOCK MARKET, UNLEASHING A CATASTROPHE THAT WOULD RIVAL THE GREAT DEPRESSION.
NO MATTER HOW OLD I AM, I HAVE ALWAYS WONDERED AT HOW MOST DO NOT SEE THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF EVERYTHING TO EVERYTHING ELSE.
IT'S THE OLD "BUTTERFLY WINGS IN THE AMAZON CREATE HURRICANE IN THE ATLANTIC" SCENARIO.
WHAT HAPPENS AT 'POINT A' WILL ALWAYS AFFECT OTHER POINTS.
WHAT IF EINSTEIN HAD DIED IN HIS CRIB?
WHAT IF THE PROPHET OF ISLAM HAD NEVER BEEN CONCEIVED?
WHAT IF, WHEN WILSON FELL FOR THE FEDERAL RESERVE SCHEME SOMEONE, ANYONE, HAD HAD HIM COMMITTED TO A PSYCHIATRIC UNIT AND SLAPPED CONGRESS BACK TO THEIR SENSES?
WHAT IF THE WORLD HAD NEVER "ADVANCED" BEYOND THE SIMPLE STEAM ENGINE?
WHETHER ANYONE BELIEVES THAT WE ARE SEEING CLIMATES CHANGE OR NOT IS UNIMPORTANT TO ME.
WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS THAT EVEN SMALL CHANGES IN MY ENVIRONMENT PRODUCE LARGE CHANGES ELSEWHERE...FINANCIAL CHANGES, LIFE CHANGES.
SOMETIMES, I WONDER IF IT WAS THE WARNINGS BY THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE THAT "AS THE LAND GOES, SO GO WE ALL" THAT MARKED THEM FOR EXTERMINATION.
COMMON SENSE WOULD HAVE SAVED US MANY A FATAL ERROR, HAD WE BUT LISTENED AND NOT GONE CHASING "PROGRESS".
Looking at long-range weather forecasts, which are worth little, granted, we may be in for some above-average chilly months...AGAIN.
That will translate to higher heating bills, as we are unlikely to see drops in the cost of electricity, natural or propane gas, or anything else we need to stay warm, in spite of dropping crude oil prices.
To me, while that may seem a bit troubling, the overall economy is more worrisome.
Recent stock market activity may be what we look back on as "the good old days".
The Federal Reserve seems determined to drive that final nail into the proverbial coffin of "the Great American Dream".
America's economic recovery just must NOT be allowed.
Our savings at the pumps, our bumper crop year that SHOULD have seen food prices fall, all the positives must be erased to send us all running for the protecting arms of a world governance to save us from those to whom America owes the most debt.
That "new covenant" that the U.N. (in reality, the international banking cartel) has been working on and trying to shove down every nation's throat since its illegitimate birth in 1919 as the abomination once called "The League of Nations", is looking mighty fine to a bumbling, dumbed-down Congress and a president on his way out.
The UN "Covenant 2015" will be endorsed by the Pope later this month, sold to the world's people as "salvation", and WILL become our new way of life.
We could have prevented it, but did nothing, as always.
We just kept looking for the "quick fix" and not at long-term.
It's common to mankind to go for the "feel-good" of the moment without considering where addiction to "feel-good" leads.
The 'great' nations, those we call "super-powers", have lagged behind on whipping their populace into submission to being dominated and dictated to by some form of international governance, so something MAJOR must force acceptance...and a way WILL be found to see us kiss our sovereignty and our Constitution goodbye, perhaps even BEG the U.N. to "save us". (Stock market collapse or China calling in her debts might serve nicely?)
Then the "Great Rape" can begin, with industry being given the freedom to ignore the long-range effects of destroying the last vestiges of the natural world, completing the ruin of our environment to dig out, rip up, cut down, loot and haul away every last resource they can get a claw into...all in the name of "progress", or maybe "sustainability"?
We can already see the results of man's "progress" in our Pacific Ocean, along Earth's rivers, in the disappearing Amazon, and, here, in America's landscape in general.
We are a toxic nation in more ways than one.
As our water supplies dwindle, what's left MUST be polluted beyond hope of reversal.
At the very least, drop a couple of poisons into it and tell the masses that's good for them.
Where there is land, it MUST be poisoned.
Let's have another round of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, anything but a natural growing medium for our food supply.
Where there is air, we MUST inject radiation and every other known toxin to human, animal and plant life.
Pump tons upon tons of pollutants every day until everyone can TASTE the air.
WHY DO ALL THAT?
THE WORLD POPULATION MUST BE REDUCED, THAT'S WHY.
ACCORDING TO THE "EXPERTS", THE "LEARNED ONES", THERE ARE SIMPLY TOO MANY PEOPLE FOR THE LIMITED RESOURCES LEFT ON THIS PLANET.
SINCE THEY CAN'T MAGICALLY CREATE NEW RESOURCES, IT FOLLOWS THAT THEY MUST FIND WAYS TO REDUCE GLOBAL POPULATION AND HAVE BEEN HARD AT IT TRYING TO DO SO SINCE ABOUT 1900.
Those assigned that task are doing a bang-up job.
The "FED" will accomplish its assigned task in the months ahead, count on it.
The cursed United Nations will get America as its long-awaited prize.
Japan's leaking nuclear power plant and ours here in the USA will irradiate humanity until enough of us have succumbed that the overlords will plug the damned things to save themselves...the few who remain.
Then, they can bury the wastes from all of them wherever they've cleared out enough people, keep it away from their new headquarters, wherever they decide to place those, and try to create their "UTOPIA", sans all of us "human leeches" who do not fit their idea of useful.
We were expendable all along, as anyone who has read "secret" cables and documents released by Julian Assange's group well knows.
From those we can see, in their own words, how expendable some nations' people, especially those in Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia really are.
BEFORE Julian and Wikileaks, we who read the paper prepared by Henry Kissinger and the agenda of the global elite we call the Trilateral Commission, the International Monetary Fund (those main two who control Wall Street) , the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Health Organization, and the group who was once called a "conspiracy theory", but which turned out to be a VERY REAL organization, The Bilderberg Group.
They are certainly doing all they can to exterminate those they consider "useless eaters".
Just for fun, do your own search for the Trilateralist policy on "indoctrination of the young", and do see how exquisitely they managed to focus American thought on blaming the poor, the "radical youth" for the miserable social and economic failures of the twisted, criminal, suicidal policies enacted by this "democratic government" since just before the 20th century began.
"The Crisis of Democracy - Trilateral Commission - 1975"
I found in under 6 hours over 35 years ago with no computer..
It's quite obvious many in high places are itching for this "experiment in democracy" to end.
Even a backwoods jerk like old Andy Jackson saw its beginnings when he took a look.
We have hundreds of "think tanks" all over the world whose mission is to think of ways to reduce world population so the resources left will sustain the few million who remain.
They imagined world wars would do the trick, but that didn't work when we had no nuclear holocaust, when not even China decided to "unleash hell" and push all the big red buttons.
Our natural resources are so close to EMPTY we are told that we are even looking to asteroids to mine because things are drying up on Mother Earth, and we look to icy comets for water sources "for the future".
World war didn't work, but they can still pull off reduction by fanning the flames of war, hacking away at the too large population numbers by keeping the nations they see as most problematic at each other's throats on a daily, kill, kill, kill basis.
The major powers, the super-nations, arm the least fortunate, poorest, struggling nations to fight and kill one another so they can have at the minerals, or whatever. they need from those regions.
Africa, the entire continent, is the prime target for termination.
Just a preliminary search of both historical documents and Wikileaks offerings will show anyone the truth of that.
Global skirmishes make for good profits, and profits come before anything, everything else.
The Tea Room has dived into the reasons for and the extremely HIGH profits made by the pharmaceutical industry, those dedicated to sedating us, offering us a pill for everything and then 4 more pills to counter the side effects of the first one.
"BETTER LIVING THROUGH CHEMICALS:.
Who doesn't need a Valium or Xanax or Prozac to "COPE", right?
Life is stressful, take a "chill pill".
And then we fell for the statins joke, and isn't there a "vaccine" for everything these days?
Never mind what's in the pills and injections, just line up at the pharmacy and mindlessly swallow.
Just roll up your sleeves and take your shots, little sheep.
Drugs are our friends...but not those "illegal" drugs.
DON'T LOOK NOW, BUT DRUGS FOR HIGH CHOLESTEROL AND STRESS HAVE KILLED FAR MORE THAN MARIJUANA EVER WILL.
AMERICA'S BIG PHARMA COMPANIES...100 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN THE LARGEST ARMY ON EARTH AT KNOCKING OFF HUMAN BEINGS.
I HAVE TO ADMIT, THE SUBTLE EFFECTIVENESS OF DEATH BY PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IS QUITE AN AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENT.
SOMEBODY REALLY DID THEIR HOMEWORK ON THAT ONE!
TOO LATE TO CHANGE THINGS?
IT WOULD TAKE AN ABSOLUTE, DEDICATED ALL-OUT REVOLUTION TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT AND WE JUST DON'T HAVE EITHER THE GUTS OR THE MOTIVATION FOR THAT.
I'VE PUT OFF CALLING THAT FOR 40 YEARS, BUT WHY GO ON DREAMING?
YEAH, IT'S A DONE DEAL.
CLOSE THE COFFIN, DIG THE HOLE, DROP IT IN.
A FEW, A VERY FEW, WILL OVERCOME ALL THESE OBSTACLES AIMED AT POPULATION REDUCTION AND STICK IT OUT FOR A FEW MORE YEARS.
WHO KNOWS HOW LONG?
I WISH I DID.
COMMON SENSE, DECIDING TO LEARN AND NOT PERISH.
INDEPENDENT THOUGHT, BUCKING THE SYSTEM, IF YOU WILL.
NATURE DICTATES, WE TAKE NOTES.
Nature has determined that the survival of the fittest is best.
Every living animal has the desire to live above all else.
Animals, including human animals, will self-preserve and then will preserve the species.
Self-preservation as the #1 Law makes perfect sense...no breeders, no offspring.
In nature, the weak are preyed upon by the strong, or left to die when wounded or ill (in MOST of the animal kingdom) and so are eliminated from contributing to the gene pools of their species.
That's just good planning...perhaps cruel to some, but effective.
Once upon a time in America, parents reared their children to be strong.
There was little in the way of what some called "molly-coddling" and even the very young were assigned tasks that became increasingly more difficult as they aged.
Less than 50 years ago, many 6-year-old boys could be and were assigned to secure game for the family dinner table, plow a field, gather a harvest, tend to livestock, repair a building, do almost anything required of grown men.
Young girls of the same age could tend an infant sibling, sew, spin, weave, make baskets, find and gather wild foods, clean and cook the fish and game the males brought home, clean a house, do laundry, and also help with chores like planting, harvest, and fetching water from a distant source.
As I said, families reared strong children, capable of surviving alone at what we consider today as too young to be given such tasks.
There was fierce competition among yesterday's youth, which also strengthened the "stock".
"Everyone is a winner" just did not exist, the strong prevailed and became leaders.
Some children WERE left behind, by peers, by communities which sought "the best of the best", the "cream of the crop".
Nature taught humans in days gone by.
People knew their surroundings and were not afraid to walk alone through deep woods after dark.
Self defense was taught from infancy.
It was called exercising caution then, not instilling fear
How to coexist with nature was ingrained.
Those who learned well almost always survived the longest.
Survival at whatever cost was not frowned upon, but few, very few took more than was needed from their surroundings or bashed the skulls of their neighbors to take what they had.
They saw what predators that decimated herds suffered...starvation, or the need to move on to find sustenance.
They saw that strong, closely knit communities fared better than 'lone wolves'.
They saw what pulling up every plant used for food meant...no more food.
Taking as little as was needed assured there would be enough to go around and enough left for the next time there was a need.
Gathering as a unit meant more survival assurance than going it single-handedly.
Worst case scenarios were frequently discussed and various solutions and plans carefully scrutinized.
Few were at a loss when disaster struck.
Nobody seemed worried about "scaring the kids" with vital information to assure their ability to react properly whatever came.
Nature can be a real "bitch" sometimes, but they had ways of coping and then regrouping quickly.
Nature also provided remedies for illnesses and disease, some of which were merely observations of the wildlife.
Many were the "cures" that humans took from watching things around them.
It was IMPERATIVE to learn and learn well, to pass on knowledge very carefully.
"Making do" was not considered terrible.
People prided themselves on making do.
Things they needed to sustain their lives were well-made, built to last, and carefully maintained.
Every scrap of everything was utilized to the fullest.
Wasting resources, materials, food, anything, was not a consideration.
Waste would see people wanting.
Hand-made was the norm.
Great pride went into each item crafted.
Things were passed down for generations.
Craftsmanship was attained by apprenticeship, the "each one teach one" ideology.
Families encouraged members to acquire the ability to sustain themselves.
The wisdom of older skilled individuals was seen as a commodity, a blessing to each community.
Looking back, do we see those who were here BEFORE the boats, or some of those who came ON the boats struggling to acquire wealth, or struggling to simply LIVE?
THERE WERE NO SHOPPING MALLS THEN.
THERE WERE NO BANKS.
THERE WERE NO STOCK MARKETS.
THERE WAS NO DESIRE TO DO MUCH OTHER THAN LIVE, AND LIVE AS WELL AS WAS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.
IT ALL BOILED DOWN TO THE INDIVIDUAL ABILITY TO FIND OR RAISE OR TRADE FOR WHATEVER WAS NECESSARY TO LIFE.
MONEY, MONETARY GAIN?
YES, ALWAYS IN SOME, BUT NEVER IN THAT GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS WHO COULD AND DID AND LIKE TO GET ALONG WITHOUT SUCH A THING.
SERIOUSLY, LOOK BACK AND FIND WHERE ALL THAT CHANGED.
LOOK AT WHY IT CHANGED.
LOOK AT WHO WORKED HARDEST TO TAKE AWAY INDIVIDUAL ABILITY TO SURVIVE WITHOUT WEALTH, AND THEN WITHOUT "FEDERAL AID".
LOOK AT THE CULTURES WHO HELPED THEIR OWN GET SHOVED ASIDE AND TOLD TO ASSIMILATE.
LOOK AT FAMILY VALUES AND HOW THAT SHIFTED.
LOOK AT THE VERY FABRIC OF SOCIETY AND SEE WHEN THAT CAME UNDER ATTACK AND HOW AND WHO DID THE SHREDDING.
SAME AS ROME'S.
BECAUSE I DEEPLY CARE, I ALMOST ALWAYS INJECT THE PHRASES "LEARN OR PERISH" AND "KNOWLEDGE GIVES POWER", FOR I KNOW WE MUST LEARN AND WE MUST GATHER THE KNOWLEDGE REQUIRED TO FACE WHATEVER LIES AHEAD.
I AM NO ALARMIST, NOR AM I BEING CYNICAL.
IF ANYONE WISHES TO SURVIVE STRONGLY ENOUGH, ONE GATHERS ALL THE TOOLS NECESSARY TO DO SO AND DEDICATES MUCH TIME TO ACCOMPLISHING ALL THAT MUST BE ACCOMPLISHED.
FEAR HAS BEEN USED AS A FINE TOOL TO DESTROY THIS NATION.
FEAR IS CURED BY KNOWING AND BY ACTING UPON THAT KNOWLEDGE.
FEAR ONLY THAT YOU WILL NOT LEARN.
IN THE DAYS AHEAD, DO NOT FEAR ANY MAN WHO MIGHT TAKE YOUR LIFE.
ANYONE WHO CAN MAKE YOU BEG FOR YOUR LIFE AND SO ENSLAVE YOU IS FAR WORSE THAN A MURDERER.
THOUGH THE FORECAST IS BLEAK, "IT AIN'T OVER 'TIL THE FAT LADY SINGS".
NO MATTER WHAT, NEVER, EVER GIVE UP, PLEASE.
DON'T BE A SINGER.
PAX VOBISCUM, POPULI TERRAE.
QUOD SI INSTITERIT BELLUM, PUGNATE PRO VITA !
