Topic-wise, he covers a lot of ground, including
Like I said, all over the place. It’s a great insight into the lifestyle of dedicated prepper family.

Following a preparedness lifestyle can be difficult. You understand it’s something you should be doing, but the daily “normal” routines take precedence: work, children, laundry, meals, …
Sometimes it’s just hard to find the time to practice a new skill or become proficient with a particular tool. Where’s the extra time and energy to prep properly?
Then there’s the issue of money: funds for gear, for stockpiling items, and for training. And what about “stockpiling” money for the same emergencies you’re supposedly prepping for?
Inspired by the book We Had Everything But Money, the Survival Mom created a list of ways folks living through the Great Depression made money.
Just as professors teach in marketing 101 courses today, your grandparents and great-grandparents saw what people wanted and needed. They knew folks longed for simple comforts, and eased emotional pains … during very hard times.
So, as the entrepreneurial and marketing students of their times–and needing money themselves–they gave folks what they wanted. What they needed. They provided solace and comforts.
They earned money and survived.
Sometimes I feel I’m at the bottom of a hill, and a giant ever-growing snowball is hurdling towards me. It’s getting bigger and bigger, closer and closer. I have nowhere to go; I can’t get out of the way. That giant snowball is going to hit and bury me.
And it makes me mad.
That “snowball” is the ever-growing bureaucratic agencies that will eventually smother the rest of us living at the “bottom of the hill”. From their hilltop perch, these “visionary” elites launch proclamations, sling agendas, and crack whips.
All out of kindness, of course, because they know best. They are the smartest folks on the planet. And the most powerful practitioners of plantation politics.
Eventually, they will have so much power that the only free-breathing individuals will be those exalted ones living on top. Unencumbered by the rules and mandates they foist on the rest of us.
Anyway, that’s how I sometimes feel … especially when I read reports like the one below.
The Bell tolls … please Share.
Did you know that the United Nations intends to have biometric identification cards in the hands of every single man, woman and child on the entire planet by the year 2030?
And did you know that a central database in Geneva, Switzerland will be collecting data from many of these cards? … This new agenda truly is a template for a “New World Order”, and if you dig into the sub-points for these new Global Goals you find some very alarming things.
For example, Goal 16.9 sets the following target…
The United Nations is already working hard toward the implementation of this goal – particularly among refugee populations.
The UN has partnered with Accenture to implement a biometric identification system that reports information “back to a central database in Geneva”. The following is an excerpt from an article that was posted on findbiometrics.com…
I don’t know about you, but that sure does sound creepy to me.
And these new biometric identification cards will not just be for refugees. According to a different FindBiometrics report, authorities hope this technology will enable them to achieve the UN’s goal of having this kind of identification in the hands of every man, woman and child on the planet by the year 2030…
The Identification for Development (ID4D) initiative was originally launched by the World Bank, and they are proud to be working side by side with the UN to get “legal identity” into the hands of all. The following comes from the official website of the World Bank…
Of course all of this is being framed as a “humanitarian” venture right now, but will it always stay that way?
At some point will a universal biometric ID be required for everyone, including you and your family?
And what would happen if you refused to take it?
I could definitely foresee a day when not having “legal identification” would disqualify you from holding a job, getting a new bank account, applying for a credit card, qualifying for a mortgage, receiving any form of government payments, etc. etc. …
… What the elite want to do is to make sure that everyone is “in the system”. And it is a system that they control and that they manipulate for their own purposes. That is one of the reasons why they are slowly but surely discouraging the use of cash all over the world….
If you aren’t using cash, that means that all of your economic activity is going through the banks where it can be watched, tracked, monitored and regulated …
