If anybody has been reading my posts you should be picking up a sense of doom and gloom. America's best days are behind her at least in my lifetime. In researching wealth and poverty I found this little factoid

Some Population Facts To Ponder

* In high-income countries, farmers make up less than 6% of the workforce, while in low- and middle-income countries combined, they represent nearly 60% of all workers.

Our aquifers are going to be dry. The lakes all salted up

It seems to me that buying an acre of land in rural Mississippi or Alabama or even LA seems like a nice little insurance policy. Natural rainfall. Farm to feed yourself. May never need it and you can pass it down in your family but someday it may keep your lineage alive.

Food for thought I guess.........

The sky is falling!! The sky is falling!! Run Chicken Little!!

Mormons must be right is stocking up on tons of food.

I think we'll be just fine in a few years. It took 8 or so years to get to this point, it may take 8 or so to get out.

Anyway, I personally would like to see more progress in desalination so California can use water close to them instead of what flows through 2-4 states and finally gets to them. Also the collapse of the lawn irrigation industry :) Is that dry well going to be converted to a bunker? :laugh:

I guess it would be cheaper to just become a Mormon. I don't have to like the Osmonds to become a Mormon do I?

I'm not worried about nukes. I'm just extrapolating population growth and water supplies. Desalination consumes a lot of energy something else rapidly dwindling. If you think our water situation is bad look at China. They have the same amount of water as Canada and 1.5 BILLION people. As China grows they are going to consume so much of the world's resources and since they own us we basically will have to agree with them.

Do me a favor and drop the 8 year mantra. Bush had 9-11, Katrina, two wars and kept the economy going until the last two years. Their is no set date for our current crisis unless you are just being partisan.

The bunker was for you to live in when all hell breaks loose and people are looting and rioting.

The 8 years also said "or so". I believe the Clinton area over inflated the economy as well. It grew so much with the dot coms, and crashed down. Too many companies with no tangible product, lots of investing money, and no care if the investors got nothing in return due to the dot com failing. also the barely regulated growth of cities and real estate and over assessed home values made it tougher to swallow when the real estate market crashed. Blame falls on both parties. And there will be blame with this admin as well.

End of political argument.

You can kill a lot of meat, especially when herds of deer are running free around NYC. It happened to Will Smith, it could happen to you.

I don't know how Will Smith had time to make movies and run for President.

Did he ever eat vegetables in that movie?

Our current system of money will be useless when the country falls to the end of days:), so Guns, Gold & materialistic items to barter with will be of the most value
You will need a personal arsenal of weapons, and people to defend your property from those needing what you have to survive. Better stock up on semi auto rifles or Assault weapons, and have at least 18,000 rounds to defend your family & property. Hurry the AWB could be resigned at any time buy the Messiah.

A canny chimpanzee who calmly collected a stash of rocks and then hurled them at liberals in fits of rage has confirmed that apes can plan ahead just like humans, a Swedish study said Monday. Santino the chimpanzee's anti-socialist behavior stunned both visitors and keepers at the Furuvik Zoo but fascinated researchers because it was so carefully prepared.

According to a report in the journal Current Biology, the 31-year-old alpha male started building his weapons cache in the morning before the zoo opened, collecting rocks and knocking out disks from concrete boulders inside his enclosure. He waited until around midday before he unleashed a "hailstorm" of rocks against liberals, the study said.

"These observations convincingly show that our fellow apes do consider the future in a very complex way," said the author of the report, Lund University Ph.D. student Mathias Osvath. "It implies that they have a highly developed consciousness, including lifelike mental simulations of potential events."

I'm hearing rumors that a large number of citizens are mailing in tea bags to the White House around April 1st. Anybody else heard this? Got a chain e-mail this morning. I guess if I do it I'll use Celestial Red Zinger but I'm sending mine to Pelosi/Reid. They are the real problem. Obama is just an innocent pawn in their nefarious scheme.

I think Man will be long gone by then.

But here is a quote worth repeating.

Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.”

Invest in Gold & guns get you some Ruger Mini 30's for the family $800.00, and get you a high dollar AW $1850 in 7.62x39 for you.

When the SHTF, you can give cousin Bob the mini 30 and he can man the back window, while Aunt Clara picks them off long range from the roof- all of you sharing ammo. And if the S doesn't HTF, you can still hunt and recycle your stash.

My time to stand up to the Government anthem. great song that has come full circle and now represents anti-socialists.

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down


There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

Threads that I did not bother to open, read, or post to.
If you see that I have posted an irrelevant topic just avoid it all together would be my advice. Every thread is a "READER BEWARE". To read it and then gripe at the end for having read it is like griping that alcohol gives you a hangover. I enjoy these kind of threads because they bring out new characters and give me an insight to frequent posters. In the future I will title all non irrigation threads with "FIMCO RANT".
