How to Survive When You Can’t Pay Your Bills (LINK)

“……..I don’t mean the kind you’re talking about when your friends invite you to go shopping or for a night out and you say, “No, I can’t. I’m poor right now.”

I don’t mean the situation when you’d like to get a nicer car but decide you should just stick to the one you have because you don’t have a few thousand for a down payment.

I don’t mean the scene at the grocery store when you decide to get ground beef instead of steak.

I’m talking about when you have already done the weird mismatched meals from your pantry that are made up of cooked rice, stale crackers, and a can of peaches, and you’ve moved on to wondering what on earth you’re going to feed your kids.

Or when you get an eviction notice for non-payment of rent, a shut-off notice for your utilities, and a repo notice for your car and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about any of those notices because there IS NO MONEY.

If you’ve never been this level of broke, I’m very glad…………”

The Truth About Labor Day (LINK)

Well, I don’t know about you, but Labor Day sounds like a day of from school, from work….and yeah! Party at my house!!! No need to BYOB…I’ll share! But what’s the background for real, about this infamous day?

Tyler Durden  and Authored by Gary Galles via Mises Canada, writes and comments:

“Labor Day is supposed to honor all American workers. And every year, union Labor Day rhetoric does just that. Unfortunately, it then makes the false leap to the claim that unions advance the interests of all American working men and women, not just their members.

In fact, despite unions’ pro-worker rhetoric, the effect of most union activities and union-backed policies is to harm most American workers. Unions succeed by preventing competition from other workers who are willing to do the same work for less. Those workers either become unemployed or must go elsewhere to find jobs, increasing the supply of labor services in non-union employment, pushing down wages for all workers in such jobs as a result. The resulting union wage premium does not come out of the pockets of employers as much as from the pockets of other workers, as a result. Since less than 10 percent of the American private-sector workers are unionized, this means that more than 90 percent of private-sector workers are injured by this most basic exercise of union power.

Anti-worker effects are also vividly illustrated by the history of union violence and threats against “non-cooperative” employees. There have been thousands of attacks against such workers in recent decades, and well more than 100 deaths.

Aware that their government protection against workers who are willing to do the same job for less stops at the border,unions have also been the primary movers behind government protectionism of all stripes. But protectionism undermines the interests of all those workers who would have gained from expanded exports, as well as those who, as consumers, would have gained from access to lower cost and superior quality imports………..”

Update! Venezuelans now eating spoiled, rotten meat as electricity collapses (LINK)

Well, if you’re looking for info on the continued man-made (controlled) collapse of Venezuela, then this is the link for you:

“Living conditions in Venezuela show no signs of improving as people there have taken to eating spoiled meat just to keep themselves alive.

The AP reports that people in the city of Maracaibo have been lining up for a chance to buy spoiled meat as the rolling power outages that have been plaguing the area get worse and refrigerators fail.

As you might expect, the rotten meat is making people ill, but the starving population is willing to take its chances because it’s the only way many of them can afford to get their hands on protein as the country’s greatest collapse continues to get worse…………”

The Number Of Americans Living In Their Vehicles “Explodes” As The Middle Class Continues To Disappear (2018)

“……….The number of people who live in their vehicles because they can’t find affordable housing is on the rise, even though the practice is illegal in many U.S. cities.

The number of people residing in campers and other vehicles surged 46 percent over the past year, a recent homeless census in Seattle’s King County, Washington found. The problem is “exploding” in cities with expensive housing markets, including Los Angeles, Portland and San Francisco, according to Governing magazine………..”

A Venezuelan Prepper Looks Back: “Things I Would Have Done Differently If I Knew What Was Coming” (LINK)

Some have said that the USA could and is turning or at least heading that way, the way Venezuela is/has. I don’t know. I do try to look at the positive side of things. However, even a magnet (very useful applications) has both a negative and a positive. The yin yang symbol has a black and a white side (the real yin-yang). There is left and right. But there can also be gray area…middle ground. I guess that’s where I like to stand, and grab for the best possible answer from either side…make sense? LOL Anyway, read this article and really felt for the guy there (so to speak). There are some things to learn from others mishaps. We do learn from our mistakes. And we need to realize that along with good, evil will not be far behind. With that said…we need to make the best possible, less intrusive, least harmful decision we can. Others around us may be depending on us and we need to get it right. Chance for a “do over” might not happen. Enjoy the link:

The USA Is Now a 3rd World Nation

Excerpt:

“I know it hurts, but the reality is painfully obvious: the USA is now a 3rd World nation.

Dividing the Earth’s nations into 1st, 2nd and 3rd world has fallen out of favor; apparently it offended sensibilities. It has been replaced by the politically correct developed and developing nations, a terminology which suggests all developing nations are on the pathway to developed-nation status.

What’s been lost in jettisoning the 1st, 2nd and 3rd world categories is the distinction between developing (2nd world) and dysfunctional states (3rd world), states we now label “failed states.”

Robin Hood’s Social Being

In most versions of the story, Robin Hood was a nobleman. He first got on the wrong side of the law by poaching deer off the royal hunting grounds. He responded by adopting a radical view of the government, protesting the taxes being levied to pay for the war in the Holy Land (the Crusades)

Does this taxation increase to pay for wars abroad scenario sound familiar? Seems nothing regarding wars never changes. Anyway, he banded with likewise tax resisters, survivalists, and so-called gangsters, all men, and camped in the woods. He supported the legitimate King Richard over the English government ruling in his absence, making Robin Hood a Tory.

If Robin Hood lived today, he would probably be considered extremely conservative, reading gun fanciers’ magazines (the modern equivalent of the longbow), loudly proclaiming his right to hunt, dressing in camo, driving a van, loving freedoms and just laws of the land and using the sort of political action through violence against the evil machinations of the powers that be- he would be known as a leader of a revolution, for the people, by the people and with the people. Basically appreciating and enforcing the Constitution of the U.S.

The idea that Robin Hood promoted a type of socialism seems to come from the saying “rob from the rich and give to the poor.”

That’s not exactly socialism, but it is a sort of redistributionism associated with many clans the world over. That’s not exactly what he did. Robin Hood took back that which was taken from the countryside’s people.

And, If the state isn’t on your side, you need to bribe the local state sympathizers to gain their favor so they won’t roll over on you and turn you into the supposed elected powers. Seems that some “people” know more about redistribution than those who mention the idea.

The easiest way to aid aid the people is to (take back that which was stolen from the people) distribute food to starving peasants, torture unfair task masters in front of their employees, toss bags of money out, etc.

The Australian bush rangers did that, as did pirates when they raided government/merchant ships, so did the Japanese yakuza at one time; we can put Robin Hood in the same category as well, an ultra-rightwing groups. Thumbs up for Robin Hood! True leaders must be willing to go against the grain for the sake of the less fortunate, helping those in need without a regard to repay. Not a political idealist full of lies and flattery; hypocrisy.

We ARE on the side of the underdog.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Rocky Road Ice Cream (Wiki-Link)

Think what you call your “good life” won’t end???

The Great Depression caused an economic collapse; however, many people did not starve during the Great Depression.

Perhaps a family chose to have a new pair of socks or shoes for their child in lieu of eating a big meal. Perhaps having a second portion was not necessary. Perhaps they were too proud to ask for help. Or perhaps they were a bit creative about their meal choices (eating only turnips instead of asking for help).

While times were tough, most people just made do with lesser quality foods, including selection of lower quality meats. Soups and stews made up most of the meals, because it could stretch the food budget. Casseroles stretched the budget, too. During the Great Depression, people changed their eating habits to help their budget.

Food production changed too; Cri-co was a less expensive option to butter. O-car M-yer Wieners replaced more costly sausages. Ma-well House S-nka coffee was an option to whole bean coffees. He-nz Ketchup was used as the base for a simple tomato soup. Underw-od Deviled Ham substituted fresh lunch meat. C-rnation evaporated milk replaced fresh milk. Ground acorns became a substitute for coffee; or people added chicory to extend the coffee supplies. Honey, molasses and corn sweeteners replaced sugar as sugar was at a premium, and later rationed by World War II.

Meals during the great depression included; Grandmas Great Depression Cake (no eggs, no butter, no milk), creamed chipped beef on toast or waffles, creamed chicken on biscuits, as a variation of chipped beef, hash (potatoes and corned beef or sliced hot dogs), and Depression soup: this was simply 1/3 cup ketchup 2/3 cup boiling water, molasses and cornbread.

Foods that debuted during Great Depression include; B-squick, Good H-mor ice cream bars, Kr-ft macaroni and cheese, Krispy Kr-me doughnuts, K-ol-Aid, Toll Ho-se chocolate chips, R-tz Crackers and Sp-m.

Did you know Rocky Road ice cream was “invented” during the Great Depression?

It was indeed a “Rocky Road” ahead when the stock market crashed on October 29, 1929 and started the Great Depression. Poverty hit the masses for a decade, but hit its peak in 1933 when around 40% of the nation’s farms were on the auction block. Since that time, people have been preparing for the next Great Depression.

Always Safe, Always Prepared
Are you prepared?
