MONEY: Serious diversification

IT IS TIME: Move Your Money Out of the US Banking System

*** begin quote ***

It is time for serious diversification. Depending upon the size of your assets, there are different things that should be done. But almost everyone should have some cash and gold coins stored outside the banking system. Those with significant assets should begin international diversification now, while it is still possible. I don’t consider any country completely safe from the clutches of the US government so international diversification, among many countries, is also called for: Switzerland and Hong Kong for starters, but also other countries that are not known as tax havens, the USG has their claws into these countries, be creative.

*** end quote ***

Time to store: water, beans, bullets, and bandaids … … not necessarily in that order.

Followed by bullion — nickels, silver, and gold.

Note: Not paper!

Astonishing results by a medical doctor in her own care.

Call it confirmation bias for me as it “confirms” an opinion I have that I have lost weight on Paleo. And could stand to lose even more if a I was a better eater.

I have basically given up pizza. Now if I could just give up beer.

For the most part, I’m down to one or two cups of coffee per day. I never drink soda any more. And, I take a lot of vitamins.

We’ll see if it makes a difference.

Next big hurdle is beer. Gotta give that up; substitute some red wine instead.


Any way. Watch this TED talk and tell me I’m missing something?

SURVIVAL: Sandy creates at least one

What Made Me Begin Preparing for TEOTWAWKI, by Elizabeth in the Northeast

In six months the oldest of my boys leaves for the Marine Corps, and told me that for the first time since he enlisted he’s no longer afraid of what will happen with me and his younger brothers. He’s actually okay with really leaving now, because in two short months I’ve managed to squirrel away enough supplies to take care of all of us, and instead of believing that the powers that be will take care of me and mine in an emergency, I’m being proactive in taking care of me and mine. If it happens, when it happens, this Mama is more than ready.
