The Stark Political Party Affiliation Contrasted With Population Density

June 15, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin


Population Density Map United States
Red = 5,000 or greater -people per square mile!

 
It is generally well known that population density is directly related, associated and proportional to political party affiliation.

When tightly packed humans live shoulder-to-shoulder in a geographically small area, their political outlook and ideals are often very different from other humans who live in places with more “breathing room” – places where they’re not constantly bumping into each other.

I came across a very interesting statistic and visualization which presents a stark, blunt, and outright undeniable reality that we are divided here in America not only by our political ideals, but by geographical regions. There literally are lines in the sand. When you cross from one side to the other, you are entering a different political world…

Will A Triggering Event In North Korea Change What You Are Doing?

May 8, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I recently received an email from someone who expressed the following conern:

“I’m getting a bit antsy about a potential triggering event in North Korea that might lead to a wider situation, for which we as a nation are not yet ready.”

And here’s the topic launch, a hypothetical:

“What if you came upon evidence that convinced you of a high likelihood that war would break out with North Korea, say, on July 4th, 2017. What would you do NOW that’s any different from what you have been doing.”

In case you haven’t heard, the United States has launched a missile attack within Syria in retaliation for the apparent chemical weapons attack there.

The Wall Street Journal reports “The U.S. military launched nearly 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles against a Syrian air base Friday, responding to mounting calls for a display of force in the wake of this week’s suspected chemical-weapons attack in Syria.”

The US missile strike is additionally significant in that “The strikes represented the first time a U.S. military operation deliberately targeted the regime of President Bashar al-Assad”

The Mainstream Analogy With A School Of Fish Moving In Synchronicity

March 20, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

As I drove from east to west today across the state of New Mexico on our current trip, Mrs.J and I were talking. One of the subjects had to do with the political and ideological division in this country, and how there are incredible and powerful efforts underway to undermine the nationalist movement within the United States.

Be Independent Rather Than Labeled Left or Right

March 10, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

Something that has always bugged me… That is, how we are ‘forced’ and ‘herded’ into one of two ideals… LEFT or RIGHT.

We have been saddled here in the U.S. with a predominantly 2-party political system and I believe that it may be done this way for a reason.

Here’s the reason:

Why Have The Trump Supporters Stopped Prepping?

February 28, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I don’t mean to lump everyone on the ‘right'(ish) side of the political spectrum as Trump supporters, however I believe that this broad-brush paints the picture well enough.

I sense it, I see it, and there’s no doubt that many have stopped prepping since Trump won the presidential election. Certainly not all have stopped, though a percentage have stopped and an additional percentage have largely pulled back.

Apparently they are encouraged enough such that there is a belief that the problems, the risks, the dangers, are either gone or suppressed to the point of complacency that Trump will fix everything.

The mistake that they are making is that there is an epic battle going on, right now, between ‘the deep state’ (yes, it exists) and Trump himself and the ideals that he brings to the table. They are diametrically opposed to each-other. The deeply rooted globalist/socialist/communist (and the neocon) opposition versus a nationalist/populist movement is on fire, and this thing is just getting started…

When Inflation Causes Mortgage Rates To Spike…

February 16, 2017, by Ken Jorgustin

I couldn’t help but correlate what I recently read over on ZeroHedge to the reality that many people are ‘on the edge’ (paycheck to paycheck) with being able to pay their mortgage (“Mortgage Delinquencies Rise Most In 7 Years As Rates Spike”), indicative of the fragility that exists within the structure of our debt burgeoned system and society.

Evidently 30-year mortgage rates have increased from about 3.6% to around 4.4% during the past four months (inflation is coming) and the affects of corresponding higher mortgage payments (for some types of mortgages) have caused a sudden rise in delinquencies.

 
This is an indication of two things…

1. Inflation is coming (here?) 0.8% mortgage rate increase in four months.

2. Just how tight people’s budgets are – with literally zero wiggle room – such that they cannot afford to pay the uptick in mortgage payment. There’s no margin.
