This weekly post is an open-forum (any topic) to voice your thoughts, opinions, or questions for others. Lets hear about what you’ve been doing this week for preparedness, or perhaps what you have done to convert your ‘fiat’ (paper) currency into tangible assets 😉
The more who comment, the more that’s spread around for the benefit of all…
Note: We appreciate that you stay on-topic with your article comments during the week. However for any ‘off topic’ comments, use the most recent Saturday open-forum article,
‘What did you do for your preparedness this week?’

For those who are able, it’s a good idea to keep some extra cash at home for preparedness – for ‘just in case’. A question is, where is a good place to keep and hide that extra cash?
If your home is ever burglarized, you don’t want to make it easy for them to find.
Preparedness includes gathering intelligence, knowledge, and information regarding global / world current-events. It is a form of situational awareness that will help guide you towards more effective risk assessment – which may influence specifics of your preparedness.
If you only watch one channel, your knowledge and perception of world current-events will be limited to what is presented by that channel and will be perceived as they have intended it to be perceived. In other words, you will be ‘brain washed’ by your limited and biased resource (they are all biased to an extent – some worse than others).
Your knowledge and awareness of ‘the news’ and current events is limited to what you let in.
While it is impossible to grasp the entirety of global current events (there’s only so much time that one can designate to discovery), the fact is that most people only hear, see, or read a ‘mainstream’ news media outlet. Not to mention those who do not gather any news whatsoever…
Are you looking to peel back the onion?
Would you like to peek behind the curtain?
I’m not sure if it’s because I spend a fair amount of time each day reading alt-news (news other than the ‘mainstream media’), but lately I have had the gut feeling to urgently prepare even more. The thing is, I feel like I’m already quite well prepared, however I’m getting the feeling to do even more… and to do it quickly.
Do any of you have this sense of urgency lately? And why do think that is?
Especially during these last months, the mainstream has been increasingly demonizing and vilifying Russia. There does not appear to be any effort to deflate tensions or to work with Russia (e.g. battling ‘ISIS’ together) but rather instead to alienate and threaten them while they support their long-time ally, Syria, who is currently battling through a civil war.
The ‘powers-that-be’ in the West have been trying to overthrow Syria for several years, apparently via proxy ‘rebels’ (ISIS, and other terrorist groups for hire). Especially of late, these ‘PTB’ are accelerating their actions. The thing is, Russia has been responding in kind. There is a ‘ratcheting up’ going on, and it feels like one day it’s going to ‘unwind’ as a trigger point is reached whereby the US and Russia will be directly involved.
The question is, will the US and Russia get into a ‘hot’ war with each other over all this?

Given the rhetoric and threats that have turned into dangerous and provocative actions from the United States (NATO) neocons towards the country of Syria and ally, Russia, the topic of ‘nuclear’ has been on the minds of many…
The situation has devolved so badly that just last week Russia and its citizens engaged in a several day preparation drill for nuclear war. That’s right, and it’s no joke. This, as well as the truth of the situation in Syria has not been reported in our mainstream media. The alt-news is widely reporting (alerting) of this very dangerous escalation and I encourage you to do your own due-diligence to learn about what’s going on.
With that said, one very important bit of knowledge immediately after a nuclear ‘incident’ is to know the live wind patterns in your region. The wind will carry the nuclear fallout, and if it goes over your head – you might become dead…
Are you curious to know the basic differences between dehydrated food and freeze dried food?
Lots of preparedness-minded people who have a so called ‘deep pantry’ and will often have a variety of foods for longer term storage including dehydrated foods and freeze dried foods.
Here are the basics regarding each process:
