Net Neutrality: We Lose Our Liberties Because We Give Them Away

February 28, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


Quoted from ‘Lionel’ of,

If ever we lose our liberties, if ever we lose our first amendment right to speak, it will be because WE give the rights away. Nobody will take them from us – we will give them away – stupidly. Idiotically. Without so much as a struggle we’ll hand them away, “Here, take them, take our rights, we don’t need them – because we’re stupid”.

The most important thing, number one, in any free society in order to remain free – that’s only accomplished by a free exchange of ideas. The commerce of expression. That’s critical. Anything that impinges upon that, anything that limits that, hurts us all.

The internet. This up until now has been free and unfettered by government and regulation. That has changed because of what Obama’s appointed FCC commissioner’s did two days ago.

The mainstream media in particular have met with not so much as a raised Botoxed eyebrow – of the long-range implications of the FCC’s net neutrality. In case you missed it, the Internet and World Wide Web are now considered a utility under Title II of the Communication Act.

All bets are off.

“Net Neutrality” yet again shows you that it stands for the proposition that Americans will applaud and vote for (and/or accept) anything as long as it has a good label. The Patriot Act, Clean Water, No Child Left Behind, The Affordable Health Care Act, Safety in the Schools Act, – Give it a good name and nobody will question it…

A Coming Collapse: Signs Of The Times

February 27, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


There are many triggers for the coming economic collapse. There are also many signs that we are presently in deep doodoo.

A complete breakdown of the global economy will bring on a severe economic depression, possibly for decades. In our modern world of interconnected finance and risks, we have long ago seemingly reached a point of no return (astronomical ridiculous and non-payable debt). Trade wars, currency wars, and then world war will inevitably be our future. Many believe that we’re in all three right now and it’s only a matter of time before TSHTF.

Diversify Excess Cash Into Safety

February 26, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


If you are preparedness-minded and fortunate enough to have excess cash funds beyond your bills and obligations, AND if you are very concerned about our economic future or stability (an apparent ‘house of cards’), you might be wondering where to focus your ‘investments’.

Here’s one opinion:

Walking: Survival Fitness and Exercise

February 25, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin


If you lack good fitness, fail to exercise regularly, or you are generally ‘out of shape’, even though you might have all of your preparedness supplies and extra food on hand (ready for SHTF) – you still aren’t ready because in a post-collapse world there will be little time for sitting on one’s ass all day.

Here’s one thing you can do to improve your ‘survival fitness’…

The total amount of fresh water on earth is a precious commodity, and although you might think there’s plenty of it – when you comprehend the following statistics and put it in perspective, it may seem otherwise…

Only 0.000067 of the total water on earth is available on the surface as non-saline fresh water in our rivers, lakes, and streams.

That’s just 1/150th of one percent of the total water on the planet! 0.0067 percent. That’s how precious our fresh water is.

That tiny slice is illustrated as follows:
