Tell Us Your Stories Of Encounters With ‘Common Sense Challenged’ People

August 28, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

stupid-people

Lets have some fun today. I know you all have stories about this subject… your encounters with those who are ‘common-sense challenged’ – those who may exhibit a higher than usual number of episodes which involve a clear lack of common sense, judgement, or basic understanding of the world around them.

There are plenty of them out there (these people), and while one wonders the actual percentage of the human species, one might believe that number to be exceptionally high these days… perhaps due to the ‘modern’ cushy world we currently live in whereby just about anyone can survive with ease…

With that said, here’s one example of a story which I copied from one of our reader’s comments from yesterday’s article (How Will People React After The Crash Of The Great Reset?) – which I thought was pretty darn humorous (and telling) —

How Will People React After The Crash Of The Great Reset?

August 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

global-reset

For those who are already reasonably prepared, perhaps one of the biggest concerns is the reaction and behavior of the unprepared. When it all comes crashing down, whether it’s a sudden or drawn-out decent into collapse conditions during the Great Reset, the question is how will people react during this time of great turmoil?

Here are a few thoughts, while we invite those of your own…

How To Acquire Food Storage Even If You Are Poor…

August 25, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

food-storage-for-the-poor

Lets face it. There are lots and lots of people who consider themselves ‘broke’, as in ‘no money’. More specifically, they don’t think they have enough money to build up a cupboard or two full of food for emergency storage (or just plain old having some more…).

There are many people who live week to week on little income while struggling to make ends meet. There are bills to pay and there’s little money left over for stockpiling some extra food. There might only be enough food in the house to feed the family for a few days or maybe a week – until the next paycheck comes in.

Well here’s the thing: There likely IS a way to put some food in the pantry…

Thoughts Regarding Faraday Cage Techniques For An EMP

August 24, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

faraday-cage-for-an-emp

As many of you know, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) could end life as we know it in approximately one hundredth of a microsecond. Faster than the blink of an eye. While some may argue the likelihood of such an event, lets focus instead on the methods one might consider to protect their electronic equipment in a Faraday cage.

But first, briefly, an EMP in the context of this article is a pulse of considerable electromagnetic energy (with a wide range of frequencies and amplitudes) resulting from a nuclear detonation at (high) altitude in the atmosphere. As the pulse travels away from the burst point at the speed of light, the radiation can be ‘collected’ by metallic and other conductors at a distance. The energy of the radiation can then be converted into strong electric currents and high voltages. With sufficient energy, particularly from the high-frequency components of the EMP, electrical and electronic equipment connected to (or associated with) the collector may suffer severe damage from a strong current and voltage surge.

What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015/08/22)

August 22, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

(Hopefully you did more than this lazy dachshund)

This week was a reminder that all things are not right in the global economy. In fact, many believe (know) that things are very wrong in this illusion of a so called recovery — and that the Thursday/Friday stock market losses are just the tip of the iceberg. We might be facing another ‘Black Monday’, perhaps unless the FED pulls another rabbit out of its hat this weekend (perhaps announcement of QE4 coupled with permanent zero interest rates?).

Whether or not this turns out to be ‘just’ a ‘correction’ rather than a crash (we’ll see next week), it’s a wake-up call that time may be running short on general preparedness.

With that said, what did you do for preparedness this week? Or what are you now planning?

Wall Street Plunge – Is This The Big One?

August 21, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

wall-street-plunge

While the cracks in the dam have been splintering before this week, the past few days Wall Street has been drenched in RED, having plunged 530 points today (5 percent this week!)

The question is — is this the big one? Are we about to go over the cliff?

Having just sat down after today’s work, I have not yet read reports today of what others are saying, but I can almost guarantee that the mainstream is pointedly blaming the situation on China, their crashing market and currency devaluation.

But everyone with a brain knows —
China is just a symptom of what’s going on worldwide — the debt bubble has peaked.

Is the $hit$storm about to happen? Time to batten down the hatches?

Sound off – let’s hear from you:
