We put another Q&A video out: click here if you'd like to see it. Life keeps moving
Budgets getting a little tighter...prices are going a little bit higher. I remember when I first moved here I felt like the whole state was on supersale. Everyone and their Mom is out deal hunting so clearance surfing is not what it used to be...I never thought I would live to see the day that a bottle of chilean organic wine on sale would be cheaper than a lb of butter. Unbelievable...
People act real nervous and scared online and in real life.
Don't be scared...although the changes now are mostlly man made, there are naturally occurring changes that happen in the earth and what can you do about it? Be prepared, be aware and maintain the mindset of a natural and non fearful person. Truth be told even before we started "prepping" we always just observed the things around us and enjoyed what this life has to give.
When everyone said the TSA was groping everyone and not letting anything through we still kept traveling and TSA didn't take ONE look at us - half the time we get our own drinks and industrial size lotions on the plane. When people said US Customs takes everything - no they don't and we have the video to prove it. I will not deny that there are instances where these things happen but they do not happen to us.
There are some people who think that every incident, natural disaster, or political debate is going to trigger the fall of America. It won't. It will not be a singular event that cases our lives to change as we know it...it will be the conglomeration of things that makes everything fall down - the straw that broke the camels back per se. What gets on my nerves is THIS: I see people who actually enjoy seeing things fall apart - almost so they can use their preps and say "see I told you so..." That's some bullshit. If you could READ glee - i see glee in them to see that the economy, the stockmarket, the food supply, and the political climate is volatile. That's pathetic.
I also see that people (perhaps unconsciously) like to spread fear and anxiousness as a way to make themselves feel better because they perceive that they are more prepared than others and they will make it to "the big show" Blanket comments and generalized fear mongering is bullshit - I always ask people tell me how you've lost your rights...and they cannot answer, so I ask tell me specifically what is hindering your freedom in the recent changes from your city council...still no answer. I finally say,"If someone takes something from me your ass best believe I would know that someone took my shit --- so what did they take from you?" It turns out it was just some changes in building inspections for their local area. Hey genius - you are supposed to follow rules for structures you build over a certain size, unless you are an architect slash electrician slash plumber and can do such shit. Small structures don't require such inspections but large ones do asshole. Its funny when people get away with shit for so long and then when their luck runs out they call it a loss of freedom. We are losing our freedoms but not in those minute stupid ways that fear mongers say.
Losers and hermits want you to be scared because instead of doing productive things you will waste your time, arguing, being angry and worrying. Anger is effective in the correct time and place but it should also blow over into action.
Fear will hinder your growth.
