Posted on 11/13/2012 9:37:39 PM PST by Kartographer
Were talking about the potential for an absolute credit freeze that will make the situation in New York spread across this country almost overnight.
Ask yourself this question: Are you prepared to take care of yourself?
If you cannot answer that question with the affirmative it is time to stop just listening to alternative media and thinking of it as entertainment, but taking the advice seriously and considering if you have a plan to take care of yourself and loved ones if the situation arises.
Because if you look around this world, if you look at the mainstream media, theyre forewarning you about whats coming.
There is a disaster coming. Get ready for it. Make sure you are mentally and physically prepared for what is coming.

Gold, guns, generators, gas, groceries, cash.
Stock em up boys....
I've made it through a few hard times without a genset. I don't know the last time I bought gas. Been a while. The city hasn't sent a lawn notice since spring.
Groceries, the good Lord provides wherever we live, if you study.
Studying brings 2nd Timothy 2:15 to mind. Skillsets are important.
You need to jump off your high horse, which for you will be a long tumble, and read some Proverbs, some of Paul’s other epistles, and study some parables.
I would also like to know why showing wisdom in prepardeness somehow means you won’t have skillsets....and won’t have the Word of God.
If I stock up on guns, gold, cash, generators, fuel, batteries, groceries, etc - I will still have my Bibles and my skill sets.
Or, you could just be a bitter old prune looking for a fight and intentionally going off topic.
What’s the big deal? Everybody should just raise their debt ceiling.
You know, like the government.
I've had plenty of them. Humbling ones.
By all means, prep with all the material things you think you might need. Lord knows I do as I can, and you don't need my blessing or permission to do what you think is right.
The topic is preparedness for hard times, correct?
IF THERE IS A CREDIT FREEZE, TRUCKS STOP!
I’m ready if trucks stop.
You’re wrong about Johnny. He is down to earth and can survive anywhere and has had to do that in the wilderness for a long period of time.
He was just saying survival can be done if you don’t have the blessing of goods. He is also a Godly man.
That's really, really gonna suck, though. No way around that part of it. At least we'll stay busy.
"The fizzling emerging market story is a key reason why the West has relapsed this year. The world is now facing a synchronized downturn on all fronts, with little scope for fiscal and monetary stimulus."
I don’t think he’s off topic. I’m glad he said what I didn’t: not everyone can afford gold or a generator; not everybody is going to be able to save cash. But if you know how, it’s still possible to survive.
I am going to have a hard time surviving on my own—I’m just a lady in her middle years. No money to buy gold or a good generator—nothing at all. I’m focused on buying medication and laying in firewood and ammunition, just to try to hold out as long as possible. I sure wish all this would be put off for eight or nine months ‘til I can get out of this house, but that’s probably too optimistic.
I’ve had to give away preps 4 times since Y2K. A lot of missions and food banks were blessed. I had to go where the Lord sent me and it didn’t include being able to take them. When my husband, daughter and I were broke on a Pacific Island, we found food in the refrigerator we didn’t buy or put there. I’ve seen food multiplied. When we had practically nothing, our neighbors out of the blue brought a whole stem of bananas. Another time, our other neighbors invited us to a feast, just for us, to meet us because I’d been friendly to their daughter. When I was single and without work, with almost nothing in the fridge, I found yogurt (my favorite) that I knew was put there supernaturally. You don’t miss stuff like that if your fridge is pretty much bare. We went to a weekly walk when we had nothing for our daughter. The group was having a picnic that day that included cake so we all celebrated her birthday. Prepping is wise, but it’s wiser to find out what the Lord specifically wants one to do. One shoe doesn’t always fit all. Do I have a well stocked pantry and other supplies? Will they end up being given away again? Only God knows. God can still send a raven today.
I can not see anyway possible for America to return to be the country that I grew up in, and I would not want to prep to live in USSA Hell.
I started international travel in 1999, first living in central Europe, and now well settled in the Philippines for the last four years..
If for some reason SHTF here, I can bail out to another island group, or wherever.
I have very few material things to worry about, but I have a very happy life on the beach with my wife and our 18 month old baby boy.
I have not been back in the USSA since Jan. 2005
“If I stock up on guns, gold, cash, generators, fuel, batteries, groceries, etc - I will still have my Bibles and my skill sets.”
I hear a lot about preppers who are convinced that they can survive with gold, guns, and other supplies.
Unfortunately, you will be shortly overrun by the massive hordes of those who do not have what you have.
You would need an army to protect you and your treasures.
Johnny is saying skills is important. You can have all the stuff but skills trumps stuff.
Still, I gots stuff and lots of it.
I got mad skills too and I’m a country boy with some Beechnut and a .45...
