The Long Slow Slide is Just a Marathon to the Bottom
It was of course a beautiful day today. The ground has dried up enough that I could really get some work done around the place but as usual the planets did not align properly and I had to go on a work run then finish the mowing cycle by getting our house in town mowed.
I got home just in time as the sun was setting to realize I am going to have to start the mowing cycle all over again tomorrow. Yep this time of year I have to mow about every four days tops or it gets so thick it will literally take me hours longer when I do get to it. What really sucks is when it rains for like 6 days straight.
So finding myself with a few precious hours free this evening I decided to do another blog jaunt through Liberal blogger Lala land. I try and visit the dried up rodents and knick knack toads occasionally to try and get a handle on what topics are driving them insane these days. Nothing of any real interest except some pro-Hillary propaganda and more screaming to tax the rich so their government checks will continue. Looks like one of them is closing up shop while another is trying to figure out how to steal internet from locals rather than pay for it like us taxpayers do.
All pretty typical.
What occurs to me this evening though is an important part of prepping that many don't pay heed to. It isn't stocking firearms or hoarding ammunition, it touches on food storage a bit but I think lends itself more to the old prepper norm of getting out of debt. We don't hear much about that these days as I think it is one of the hardest things for preppers to really do. The entire system is set up to constantly attempt to trap each and every one of us into more and more debt. Once you have the debt vise attached you are pretty much at the mercy of the manipulated figures. The powers that be can really put the squeeze on you especially if the inflation continues to rise while the benefit check doesn't.
What happens int he end though is kinda like that old fable of the turtle and the hare. Eventually those who started out with almost no real income but relied on their own production and lack of debt to stay at the same level while those with massive amounts of debt keep sinking. As time goes by which group begins to get more and more desperate?
Desperate people will do things like scream for higher taxes and fall for outright lies that flow from Femocrats like water used to do from man made lakes in Kalifornia. Outwardly these types will say their pensions are secure or their benefits are covered and act like they don't have a care in the world but we have reached a point where they are sweating bullets from all the bad news they pretend to ignore.
For those of us who missed the great Baby-Boomer Government employee glut or never qualified for Affirmative Action created positions or more importantly were too moral to swallow the kool-aid can shrug off the bad financial news. We are not worried about a stock market reset, how much the rich are taxed or if China drops the dollar. We have hit our stride and we're running this race at a sustainable pace that will let us cross the finish line while those who put their faith in other people's wealth and the government tax collector will fall out before the end.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
