Can The US Prevent A Starvation Crisis?
Food is the number one priority for survival. In the end food is going to be the real undoing of this welfare state. None of the other lesser priorities such as culture, bartering, currency (money), or even the lack of oil are the deadliest threats to this nation. The welfare state is what killed off this nation’s small farmer and home gardeners.
They furnished this nation with a huge bartering capacity and would have been the backup to sustain this nation during a financial collapse or nuclear crisis they got this nation through the great depression. Our current welfare state has left us with almost no bartering capacity or hardly any means of surviving if the government does go belly-up. A nation with no bartering capacity is like having a dagger aimed at its heart in terms of long term survival.
Sure, the huge centralized mechanized factory farms are feeding us now, but provide almost no national bartering capacity. They are extremely dependent on mass quantities of fuel made from oil, and they are hundreds of miles away. That means if there are bottle necks or fuel problems, millions of mouths could go without food.
As it is now this nation could be in grave trouble even with a small national crisis that last over three days. People could start hoarding and bottle necks could pop up everywhere. Yet, I’m seen as a nut case for wanting to be prepared to survival under all conditionsFrom the desk of Freddie L. Sirmans, Sr. Nov. 19, 2007
Will the Euro trump the dollar?
I see where more and more people are beginning to flee the dollar and run to the Euro for financial security. It may be a case of jumping out of hot water into the fire. Like the dollar the Euro doesn’t have a gold backup and in my view is not nearly as strong as even a weaken dollar.
What surprises and baffles me is why so many even learned economists are so ignorant of the very basics of economical survival. What are they teaching in economic school, many don’t have a clue as to the bartering foundation? Their priority is all wrong. Sure, money is extremely important, but it’s not the most important thing to survive, people survived long before money was invented. Many primitive societies even to this day survive without money.
The priority follows in this order; food, shelter, warmeth, culture, bartering, and then currency (money). Money only allows a society to survive more efficiently. Even culture in the long run is more important than money. Without a culture with a strong nuclear family system and a strong moral code in place money won’t matter because there won’t be any unity to hold the society together.
I believe civilization would not be where it is today without the Christian religion and its moral code. The main reason I believe the Christian religion has allowed so much advancement is its emphasis on love and forgiveness. It may seem like a small thing that doesn’t really matter, but without it a society tends to stay primitive. Just look around, there are countries that without outside trade and influence definitely would regress back to the primitive stage, especially culture-wise.
Following bartering a currency is next in line of priority, but that means a currency that have it value in itself or a guaranteed backup. There must be a physical accountability currency to protect a society’s culture because as human being we are controlled by our greed and self-interest.
Also, a physical accountability currency would have purged out all of the liberal anti-survival threats we face today, such as men marrying men, women marring women, illegal aliens with driving licenses, and on and on. There has never been a society that changed course even knowing it is headed toward total disaster, because greed and self-interest coupled with power concedes nothing.
Right now with the financial condition this country is in the liberal and even conservative politicians will never voluntarily stop reckless spending without a physical barrier stopping them. It is the nature of man to push the envelope or go the limit unless physical stopped, a real currency does that. The stock market, interest rates, and compound interest are all side issues; it’s like playing the game monopoly in real life unless there is a gold backup.
It just takes around five generations to catch up with us. If a country doesn’t have any fall back underground bartering capacity and a physical accountability currency it is truly living in a fantasy world. There has never been and never will be a government that won’t go broke at some point. To all of those running to the Euro, just remember that civilization was built on a physical accountability currency, not wealth based only on trust and faith.
A lack of gold backup and the welfare state have destroyed our small farmers and home gardeners, our underground bartering capacity backup, and our once strong nuclear family system. Now, same sex marriages and other anti-survival forces have the power to bring down the whole system. The million dollar question is: Can western civilization survive? Sad to say, I have my doubts. Something will come about, but it may not be freedom.

I. The so called war on drugs is a Joke.
I see where they are reducing the punishment for using crack cocaine. I’m going to say up front and not beat around the bush, unless a death sentence is enacted for big time drug lords we can forget about even slowing down the illegal drug trade. As to all of the users, why feed and house all of these people, just bring back flogging and send them on their way.
But, oh no! We are too civilized for that. Otherwise, the US is going to end up like some of the third world countries where it is too dangerous for a decent citizen to utter a cross word. I may be wrong, but I can’t understand how drugs can be in the prisons and almost everywhere without a lot of corruption. We have the death sentence for many crimes and I can’t think of anything worse than destroying the hopes, dreams, and lives of so many of our young.From the desk of Freddie L.

I. A Survival Plan If the $Dollar collapses
With my great wisdom I felt a need to submit a last resort economical survival plan in case the dollar actually goes down. It is out of my control if no one listens or discard me as a nut case, I did my duty. What I’m about to say may be self-serving, but I’m going to say it anyway. I believe talent and ability is like a liquid, it will eventually seek its own level.
You can put liquid in a pipe that goes up, down, sideways, or where ever, but that liquid will eventually settle to equal level across no matter the pipes shape. Even ancients builders understood that. I think talent and ability is the same way. You see it when someone becomes famous overnight and you never hear from them again. And other times when someone is seemingly famous overnight and you learn they have been out there toiling away over twenty years or more.
However, there is one main requirement needed for lasting success, said best, “Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit.” That is why “Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” That is why when you stand and “Face your fears mighty forces will come to your aid” (paraphrased). It is said in the bible, “Slay the dreamer and then let’s see what happens to his dreams” (paraphrased).
So, when I’m called a nut case and countless things are thrown in my path, I have no reason to fret. I know that if what I write is truly nutty and insane, then I really am a nut and will be forever ignored, Otherwise, "All the kings’ horses and all the kings’ men won’t be able to keep my great writing a secret forever (paraphrased)."
I can no longer sit still and do nothing knowing this country stands to lose a hundred million or more people if the dollar goes down, totally. My proposed last resort economical survival plan is designed to be used by the federal government only as a last resort to prevent total chaos. I’m only a private citizen with no connections or inside information. I’m sure the federal government has emergency contingency plans of its own in case the dollars gets into severe trouble.
But, the government is going to totally rely on the federal emergency management agency (FEMA). Femi’s reliability is totally dependent on the effectiveness of its paid employees, but who knows what will happen if they are not being paid. As far as I’m concerned, they are no guaranteed backup if the dollar goes down and becomes almost worthless. Also, I think what the globalize has in mind is to depend on outside help even as far as to bring in NATO troops to maintain order.
However, I got news for the globalist, the US is still the economic engine of the world and if the dollar goes down the global economy goes down with it. It will be every nation on its own fighting for its own survival. Of course, I hope I’m wrong on any bad things happening. In my view all of the sign are beginning to merge and I believe the dollar is in very serious trouble.
We are truly in uncharted waters and with years of out of control big government spending, the economist and no one else know what’s going to happen. I believe the dollar is going to collapse; the question is how much more time do we have before it happens. Now, all of that being said, it’s time to submit my last resort economical survival plan. The only purpose for my plan is to prevent total chaos from destroying everything.
It assumes that the dollar is practical worthless and FEMA and law enforcement personnel are not being paid. It assumes that the people are hungry and rioting in the streets. It assumes that mass civil unrest is taking place. Only now is the time for the federal government to execute my last resort economical survival plan. Let me say up front, if anyone else has a better plan, good. So, here goes my plan.
It involves dispensing an emergency physical currency to the people. The currency itself will be its value, and not dependent on any government backup. Gold must be used, and possibly some silver. I’m sure the US treasure has enough gold bars at Fort Knox and some of the Federal Reserve banks to suffice. Next, mint very small gold coins the size of a dime or even smaller.
Since its value will be in the coin itself, I believe its best not to put a denomination on it, just stamp US gold and let it seek its own value. This emergency economical plan is not design to be a cure all; it is only a temporary survival fix. Lastly, billions upon billions of these coins should be minted and stored around the country to be dispensed to the people only in case of totally chaos. That’s it, concerning my plan to prevent totally chaos.
If someone else has a better plan, please step up, then mind can be disregarded. Thanks for taking the time to hear me out. May God bless and keep the great United States of America always.
