A Perfect Time For A New Ice Age

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks...will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

- President Thomas Jefferson

Oil at $200.00 a barrel. The highest price during the highest demand.

Did you know major parts of the United States have been constructed on the assumption of heating oil for homes which is cheap, plentiful and trucked in from the outside each year on a just-in-time basis? Did you know without it, there are entire regions of States that would have to fight for wood to burn to stay alive in a particularly harsh winter? Did you know these same States also make the same assumptions about the food supply? What about elderly citizens, single mothers and children who are not capable of chopping down every tree in sight in an emergency and burning it in a barrel in their living room just to get through the night without freezing to death?

The real national security crisis is the economy

This thing hasn't even begun yet - the real crash is just warming up

No leaders left with America's best interest at heart - America is an occupied nation

Grandpa is glad he'll be dead soon

World War III - get on with it. Promises, promises. Russia is standing behind Iran. Be careful who you shoot at and with what. They may start shooting back. That could get ugly quick.

You have probably been asked this many times, but i would like an up to date answer based on all the newest information you have. When will TSHTF? I have long had plans to get out of dodge but things do seem to be moving a lot faster than i expected. How much longer do we have? In particular, how long will the global economic system last?

I'd like to leave right now, but the soonest i can is in 2 years time. I'm thinking of taking up sailing as a last resort.

These comments show a lot of people STILL kidding themselves here. Get yourselves out of debt, provisioned and positioned NOW.
Stop whining, stop asking advice from strangers on the net. Move it!
