Its been a long, strange trip. We didn’t grow up on a farm. We grew up in the city, a walk away from the grocery store, schools and friends. Our only training about self-reliance was that we were self-employed, but the business world was and is very different from knowing how to plant, how to cook with wood, how to milk and butcher a goat, or how to build a house.
We’ve come a looooong way from those days. We’ve been counting only on ourselves for the last few years and we’ve learned so much in that time – mostly through trial and error. We’ve built four houses, made a composting toilet, fixed trucks, harvested local edible plants, stayed up nights keeping the stove going so we didn’t freeze. We learned to do without when we couldn’t get to town when something got used up, we learned to wash the dishes with only 2 gallons of water when the water delivery man couldn’t get up our road. We learned that even without “much o’ nothin’”, nobody ever took away our birthday, nor did we ever starve. It’s been wonderful. We learned, first-hand, that “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”

Finally, MSNBC is launching the Democratic attack on their right wing nemesis, the Republican Party. You see there has been very little discussion of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars in Tampa, and god damn it, the Israeli people have a right to know that the issue of their Middle East conquest is being addressed by those who would propose to rule over their commonwealth. Likewise the industrial war complex has a right to be secure in knowing that the wealth of the United States will continue to be funneled to them and the international contractors will continue to grow fat on the blood of the American people and our resources.
We are paying $1 million per soldier per year in Iraq and Afghanistan as our middle class continues to shrink and our streets are filled with homeless and hungry people. We must be on the right track as we are being told that we want to keep the status quo, whether it be through Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro AKA Barry the Rat the south side of Chicago back alley pimp or Mitt the “I sold America out and have the money stashed in bank accounts around the world that I don’t want to talk about” Romney.

One of the biggest questions we get on our website, survivingsurvivalism.com, is how to begin achieving off-grid/energy independent status. Not everyone can afford to go out and buy a 5 kilowatt solar array and the associated batteries. This article is written for those of you who want to begin your road to energy independence, as well as being able to use your laptop, mobil devices, etc..

Rumor Mill News Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign on Wednesday partied with wealthy donors on a 150-foot yacht that flies the flag of the Cayman Islands, according to an ABC News report.
Members of the Romney Victory Council, who have each raised more than $1 million for the candidate, mingled with Romney’s brother, Scott, and other relatives in Tampa aboard the luxury yacht “Cracker Bay.”

September 17th will mark the one year anniversary for the Occupy Movement and of course the commies are coming out of the woodwork for another attempt at hijacking the movement. We haven’t heard a lot about Occupy for quite a while now and there is a reason.
When the commie unions and commie organizers and contributors found out on May 1st that the power behind the movement, the long term unemployed American nationals, absolutely would not be a part of any socialist movement in the United States, all support was withdrawn and bank accounts shut down.

End of the American Dream The way that the U.S. government treats military veterans is absolutely disgraceful. Men and women that have given everything for this nation are literally being treated like human garbage by their own government. After watching how vets are treated, it is absolutely amazing that anyone is still volunteering to be a part of the military.
We pay those in the military like crap, we keep sending our best soldiers back to Afghanistan and Iraq again and again, we don’t equip them properly, military suicides are at a record pace, hundreds of thousands of applications for veteran benefits are hopelessly backlogged, homelessness and unemployment among vets is much higher than for the general population, the condition of most VA hospitals is an absolute disgrace, and to top everything off now the Obama administration has started labeling military veterans as “potential terrorists”.

The corporate elite yesterday affirmed their declaration of a new form of government in the United States. On the Republican Convention floor it was declared that the United States is no longer a constitutional Republic of, for, and by the people. Via insurgency, the United States is now a corporate monarchy wherein the elite have become elite through the theft of the wealth of the entire people. They have now, through self proclamation, declared themselves the rulers and we, the mass majority their bonded servants. Now all that is left is to get 250 million of us heavily armed to bow to their dictate.
Our petitions have been ignored and the elitist international criminals have eaten out our substance and left us in a state of despotism, subject to arbitrary persecution under an admiralty system of courts wherein justice does not preside.

As the nation readies to choose a leader, to choose the one “on top” of the country, forget about the choices you have been given and consider what the criteria for a leader should be. Here’s a concept to consider: Being on top means you serve others.
Many Native American tribes choose a new chief by determining who has done the most for the tribe. Who has given the most to the tribe, in time, labor, courage? Who has taken in the most orphaned children, taken care of the most widows, given his plate of food to a hungry mouth? Who has done these things without thought of compensation for doing them? This is the one who knows the right path to follow, the path on which to lead the people.

The elite in this country have at this point completely separated themselves from the rest of us. In times gone by, this was not the case as the elite needed to keep alive the illusion of one people as they built their walls to keep us out. I saw the head of the Republican Party speaking on FOX Business yesterday. He was saying that this economy is in the ditch. IT IS NOT, at least not for the corporate elite.
Since they have imploded our economy, the elite have thrived. Record profits in every quarter for corporations, which means record dividends for those wealthy enough to own stock in the big corporations.

The so called shenanigans/treachery at the GOP Convention in Tampa, Florida has already begun. First the election of the GOP Presidential Candidate was moved up to Monday when Hurricane Isaac was estimated to be in full swing. It was announced yesterday that the hurricane is to be delayed on its course for one day, so immediately thereafter, it was announced that the convention would be delayed for one day.
Of course the convention will convene today, Monday, one day before they say it will officially convene, but will this be at the convention hall or at a private setting wherein Ron Paul delegates and supporters will be excluded? Look what these sleazy rats are doing. They are actually running about trying to slip away and avoid the masses that see them for the foreign Bilderberger lapdogs they are, sneaking and hiding at every turn. This is truly pathetic and we cannot let them get away with it.

This week we will see if civil control over we the people can be maintained in the face of the blatant fraud that is to be perpetrated enforcing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as the Republican ticket upon we the people. The status quo believes that if they can just make it through this week and force us to accept this tyranny, there is nothing to stop them.
If the Tampa fraud is allowed it will be followed by massive fraud in the general election to the point that nobody will really know what actually happened the day after the election on November 7th.

CNN did a piece yesterday entitled, “Choreography vs. Journalism, Romney, Ryan want scripted convention” and in reality this is what the good ole boy Republican private association party wants. And the convention will have nothing more to do with reality than an episode of “The West Wing”.
News journalism has from its inception been a part of the entertainment industry. In the beginning, credibility in reference to facts was essential in selling the news. But as more and more people accepted mainstream news journalism as a credible source for determining reality, the industry began to bleed more and more entertainment aspects into the mix for mind programming, the theory being that while the mind is set to receive factual information, veiled deception is introduced.

The reality behind what was originally reported as a mass shooting near the Empire State Building in New York City on Friday morning is being manipulated in an effort by the international soviet socialist, Michael Bloomberg, to blame the existence of Jeffrey Johnson’s .45 semi-automatic pistol as the cause of the deaths and woundings.
In a case like this if you watch the propaganda being put forth from every angle, the little bits of truth, mixed with the half truths and the lies, reveal the probable cause for the incident. I heard it mentioned that Jeffrey Johnson asserted that Steve Encrolino stole designs from him and the revenues there from.

If ever there was a corporation spawned in the deepest pits of hell, in my opinion, it would be this one. The only other company I can think of that could rival their evil would be the I.G. Farben Co., the makers of Malathion, Zyklon B, and cyanide gas for the Nazi regime.
Founded in1901, in St. Louis, MS. as a chemical company ( as opposed to an agricultural one ), Monsanto has a long history of creating toxic chemicals ( like I.G. Farben ). The list includes PCB’s, RGBH, Agent Orange and Aspartame.

But instead of touring the country exposing your complete lack of knowledge concerning firearms, maybe you should clean up your own house first, starting with the gang of idiots you call a police force.
Every child who learns to shoot knows enough to be conscious of where his or her bullet will eventually stop, but for some reason the idiots in your employ thought it was wise to unload a few magazines on a crowded Manhattan street. Any parent would never allow a child so stupid to ever shoot again, but you’re probably shopping for armored personnel carriers to make sure those incompetent fools can get to their next slaughter in safety.

Well it looks like Tropical Storm Isaac will be morphing into a hurricane and arriving in Tampa right on time for the Republican Convention. Florida Governor Scott has announced that the National Guard is ready to step in if the police forces that are being brought in from other areas cannot make it because of the hurricane. Talk about your perfect storm.
If I was a conspiracy theorist I might say that that hurricane was created and being driven by HARRP to be used as a weapon by the international soviet insurgency against the US nationals who are converging on Tampa, intent upon asserting their will and refusing the election fraud that will be denying Ron Paul his rightful place as the GOP Candidate.

Know the enemy.
Bloomberg About 30 minutes before two people were shot dead and nine were injured near New York’s Empire State Building, the mayor of America’s largest city was on the radio talking again about guns.
“It is just too many guns on the streets,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said during his weekly radio appearance today on WOR radio. “The argument, ‘Guns don’t kill people, people kill people,’ is one of the most disingenuous things you can say. It does take a person to pull the trigger.”
