Being Honest, The Public Pension Prepper
We actually got a bit of snow here last night and this morning which has increased my chores I need to finish up for the day before I can really do any serious blogging or writing. Later this afternoon or evening I plan on posting up another fiction Sunday Reading post and updating the page but for now I need to finish up some cold weather daily maintenance and go clean off my Dad's walk and driveway.
I wanted to address a question that was posed to me through email by an anonymous reader. This person was wondering how they could justify receiving a government check each week while also being a Conservative and Prepper.
While I disagree with all public pensions, government sponsored welfare and most disability payments they are simply a fact of life we have to deal with. Federal over reach has forced them on so many of us they are a problem that many people cannot escape from. Everyone out there should be responsible for their own retirement and the money should be their property given to them for their own labor to be invested as they see fit, not promises made on someone else's labor via a tax and ponzi scheme. There are a few exceptions, especially in the military and other service sectors that result in injury, but that is another issue.
The bottom line is not so much whether you are currently receiving a pension or some form of government check. It is what you do with it that matters at this point and if you are honest enough to realize it cannot last forever.
Many people know they are living on stolen money and they understand it cannot last and shouldn't. They were sold a bill of goods or it was forced on them and they are now used as pawns by the Femocrats or accused of being hypocrites because they get Social Security but disagree with even more Welfare.
Don't listen to these self serving idiots. Do not feel that because you have been forced to use a broken system that you must support that system with your vote or your opinion. What they are asking of you is akin to mass suicide.
Simply put it is no different than a group devouring the seed corn and then condemning the few who try and plant some of it because they also must eat while doing so. Would you vote to bring even more of that seed corn out for a party? No, you wouldn't, but you would still have to take a daily ration to have the energy to plant more.
Beware the hustlers who try and convince you they are on your side. The one's who claim solidarity while pushing for more theft. Those who may plant a tomato or two and then try and claim they are part of the solution while screaming for more loot, all the while destroying themselves with alcohol or bitter memories on the public dime. The dried up has beens that keep a chicken or two and then perpetuate myths to bring everyone down to their level. These people are the true enemy and the current quislings in our midst.
We are all of us at this party my friends but people like that are the ones attempting to block the exits as the building burns down around you. The rest of us are the ones attempting to make those exits wider. Some of us have managed to escape already and our only goal is to get as many others out as we can before the roof collapses.
Around the Small-Hold we don't ask that you starve on principal. We only ask that you help as many (including yourselves) as possible find a way out and that once this emergency is over we all know how it should be rebuilt.
Keep Prepping Everyone
