I’ve still been working on the root cellar. There were three days of rain that made a mess of everything, mostly mud and wet conditions where I didn’t try to do any work. Then when the weather broke, I finally installed the roofing on my shop. Metal roofing is now $3.25 a foot, that’s a 100% price increase over this time last year.
Lovely police state we have in Amerika (video link). Told you guys to stay home. Don’t give these thugs the pleasure of using their expensive toys on you. If you showed up, you should have been there in full battle dress ready to fight these bastards.
I have absolutely NO love for these fascist pigs. America doesn’t even remotely represent a democracy or a free country, just try to protest and you’ll quickly find out what this country really is.
These guys obviously don’t read this blog:
The prospect of global wars driven by climate change is not something often discussed publicly by our political leaders.
But according to one of America’s top military analysts, governments in the US and UK are already being briefed by their own military strategists about how to prepare for a world of mass famine, floods of refugees and even nuclear conflicts over resources. Analyst Warn Of Looming Global Climate Wars
Lonewolf sent me a bunch of links. Peter Goodchild has a long article that basically say’s “it’s all over folks”. Sorry No Gas is a lengthy read, and I think most of the points he covers have been written about here.
I remain absolutely convinced that a) nobody is listening, and b) almost nobody truly understands the severity or the magnitude of the problems headed our way. Goodchild tries to explain that, but only fails in a couple of areas (imo).
Here’s a photo essay of one of my summer projects.
This is a root cellar that I’m building, albeit slowly. Moving all of this dirt (several times) is hard work:
This thing is pretty big as root cellars go, finished dimensions will be 13 x 24, but the hole is quite a bit bigger. It’s at least 35 feet long right now and 15 wide. I had to go oversize so I had room to install posts and sheeting.
I just read this and can’t make any sense of it at all:
Uncredentialed activists are to be fenced off and kept away from the Pepsi Center in Denver by parking lots the size of football fields. The protesters descending on the RNC will be cordoned off into designated “free speech zones,” guarded by thousands of police officers to the tune of $50 million at this “National Special Security Event.”
Imagine if this happens in Amerika:
How to get hold of petrol is one of the hottest topics in Nepal ever since its sole supplier, India, began refusing to sell fuel on credit a year ago to Nepal’s state-run fuel monopoly, which owes it millions of dollars.
The ensuing shortage has led to rationing and pump queues of several kilometres.
All these fuel consumers are already out of business, but they don’t even realize it yet. Nepal Fuel Lines
Here’s another example of asinine stupidity by the State. Interference in the efforts of two children, who were trying to sell some family garden produce:
“They may start out with a little card-table and selling a couple of things, but then who is to say what else they have. Is all the produce made there, do they make it themselves? Are they going to have eggs and chickens for sale next,” said Manning. California Town Shuts Down Food Stand
This is one of those terrible stories with insufficient details, but enough so to make your hair stand on end (sent in by logrithmic):
WASHINGTON “” A Justice Department plan would loosen restrictions on the Federal Bureau of Investigation to allow agents to open a national security or criminal investigation against someone without any clear basis for suspicion, Democratic lawmakers briefed on the details said Wednesday. Deciding Who’s A Terrorist Just Became Totally Arbitrary
Dissident Voice has a good article on the anthrax coverup. Remember those conveniently timed attacks after 9/11?
The recent “suicide” death of the chief suspect Bruce Ivans was more then a little suspicions, but like all coverups, we’re not supposed to be paying attention. Loose ends have to be tidied up.
The lengths which the rogue elements within the US government will go to kill people and promote their fear agenda is unbelievable. I also suggest you read If We Could Speak to the People, What Would We Say?
Makes you wonder who they hire as cops these days:
Two off-duty female cops yelled, “We are the police!” – and then pistol-whipped a Bronx man in what authorities call a case of road rage.
NYPD Officers Michelle Anglin, 37, and Koleen Robinson, 24, were charged with assault, gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon for the Williamsbridge beatdown.
This is a rather catchy title and it means exactly what it says. The worst is yet to come. This is something I’ve been saying for a long time, but it’s now in the news.
The worst of the global financial crisis is yet to come and a large U.S. bank will fail in the next few months as the world’s biggest economy hits further troubles, former IMF chief economist Kenneth Rogoff said on Tuesday.
From the Fall of Civilization, the dead zones in the ocean keep getting significantly worse:
More bad news for the world’s oceans: Dead zones””areas of bottom waters too oxygen depleted to support most ocean life””are spreading, dotting nearly the entire east and south coasts of the U.S. as well as several west coast river outlets.
Yeah folks, it gets worse, what did you expect? We are so close to multiple dozens of trigger points on critical system around the world that it will be like a Gatling gun when they go off: Oceans On The Precipice Of Mass Extinctions And Rise Of Slime.
Actually, the rattling sounds of collapsing system is already deafening. Anybody ready for a new ethic on living? I sure am.
I am no fan of Alex Jones, however there is a lot of information found on the Infowars website. WeeBee sent me this video link that is worth watching:
I still maintain that the “grassroots” movement is a near-total waste of time and effort. The groundswell everyone thinks is needed to change the “system from within the system” (a key component to this line of thought) never happens. Nor does the system itself ever get changed, it just gets progressively worse.
This what political freedom in Amerika looks like:
The simple fact is, none of these arrest are needed or necessary, let alone a meat-processing plant for Denver citizens.
This should royally piss you off: New Orleans Cops Cleared in Katrina Shooting
No matter what happened, what we do know is two innocent people are dead — and nobody is being held responsible. Once again, law enforcement kills with impunity, without accountability.
Absolute positive proof politicians are blithering idiots:
“Now if somebody wants to sue us, they have an option to sue, but I’m fairly certain that a judge will see it the way the way the citizens see it here,” Mayor James Valley said. “The citizens deserve peace, that some infringement on constitutional rights is OK and we have not violated anything as far as the Constitution.” Crime-ridden Arkansas town expands 24-hour curfew

Can you spell e.x.t.i.n.c.t.i.o.n?
This fits right in with the southern hemisphere being less effected and possibly a better survival region. Probably not unknown already to the world’s elite. Lonewolf and I have discussed extensively the possibility of Chile being the best choice for gringos. Still looking like it’s still a reasonable choice.
While not “back to your regular scheduled deprogramming”, there is a LOT of doom news on the horizon (or on your doorstep, depending on where you live).
