Free Speech and Living Free – How do we fix America?

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 10:37 pm

As an anarchist libertarian, I believe in free speech, even if it offends others. That’s the beauty of the USA, we still have that right, although many of our other rights are being gutted daily.

As a frugal, eco-minded woman I live a frugal, but free life. I do not go to malls unless I’m behind the dumpster scavenging some good scores. I rarely dine out as I find it too expensive, fattening and just a waste of money. My hubby and I do date night a couple of times of month, but we find it far more gratifying to glean waste and help out others.

As the North American economy starts it’s freefall (and it’s not a matter of IF but WHEN), I’m honing my survival skills.

If a commenter is an outright spammer selling something stupid, I delete their comments.

If a commenter is hateful to me, they’re deleted.

Now if they disagree or agree with my viewpoint on diving and present it in a civil manner, I let the comments go through.

Please feel free to give me your story on how you’re faring in this economy and what do you think we can do to make life a better place.

  1. Miss J
    I have “window farms” to grow fruits and vegetables indoors. They grow under “full spectrum” lights that mimic sunshine.Within 6 months, I’ll be able to feed a family of 10. I plant with non-GMO/Hybrid seeds in “2 week” intervals. (ALL away from the prying eyes of gov rats.) I also have enough vitamins and minerals to last 2 years.
    There’s a 5000 watt solar generator mounted on my Suburban. If electricity becomes too expensive, I can go to solar for 9 KW/day.
    My solar will take a 25 CF freezer off the grid for 25 years.
    For light, I have oil lamps and am stocking in oil. I also collect candles and appliances using rechargeable batteries the solar will recharge.
    Am collecting aluminum screening to make my apartment into a Faraday Cage to ward off DEW’s and EMF/EMP.
    Plus, I’m a bow-hunter and these mountains have everything I could ever want to eat. Elk, deer, antelope (gamey!), turkey, wild boar.
    All I lack is a water filtration system.

    We are currently being presented with the most evil of all governments.
    Fortunately, “everything produces after it’s own kind”. Meaning? There’s a “self-destruct” built into every evil act. We just have to wait until that self-destruct is triggered and their own evil destroys them.

    In the meantime, we really need to help each other prepare for the worst parts of the Bible.
    1) Discover the “frost line” for your area and then dig a cellar to act as a refrigerator – just in case NASA is right and we are hit with a massive solar flare that takes out our electrical grid. (if it happens, cars with computers will NOT start or run! My solar will be fried.) Be prepared for that.
    2) Buy a gun or some means to protect yourself from those who don’t mind “taking what you have” to ensure their own survival at your expense. I have black powder .50 cal and crossbows. I can make bullets out of wheel weights and arrows from trees. I also learned to make my own powder. Food is going to disappear from grocery shelves, gas is going to get very expensive as is electricity and folks will want to keep what they have.
    3) Make “friends” in your own neighborhoods. You’ll last longer as a group than alone.
    4) Stock up on Zeolite, Bentonite Clay and Kelp/iodine products – or nascent iodine – as they will help the sickness that comes with radiation. WW3 is right around the corner and it will very likely be nuclear to eradicate as many as 6 billion people from the planet.
    The NWO crowd expects their Global Godless Totalitarian Communist Police State to be in place and fully functional by 2020. Less than a decade away. And things aren’t anywhere near as bad as they are going to be as we get nearer their completion date.

    If any of us plan to survive this coming evil – PREPARE NOW!!!
    If it doesn’t happen, well then, you certainly won’t have to go shopping for quite a while.

  2. Very well said Ghost. Lots for me and my readers to learn from.

  3. PS –
    When we lose our electrical grid, here is what you will NOT have, and it is NOT “if” ,,, but WHEN.
    These things will not work:
    ATM’s, gas stations, refrigerators, stoves, lights, electric blankets, coffee makers, traffic lights, banks cannot let you withdraw money because they have ALL gone to computers, UPS and FED-EX won’t deliver, neither will the Post Office.
    Grocery store cash registers won’t work, sewage systems will back up rather quickly – your commode works on siphoning and gravity – but the pumping of sewage in a city is electric. Processing sewage is electric. Panic-buying will empty a grocery store in a day.
    Tracking deliveries will stop as will the deliveries as they are ALL automated and electric. If the trucking companies cannot get fuel out of the ground, they cannot deliver anything, anywhere. Manufacturing and delivery of goods will stop.
    BOTH land line and cell phones will cease to function. It requires electricity to receive a satellite signal or transfer analog signals across phone lines.
    Flashlights will only work as long as the batteries last.

    There will be NO emergency services! No fire engines running, cops coming or ambulances serving.
    ER’s will be as lifeless as a graveyard after the masses figure out that gas generators only run until the gas runs out.

    WE WILL BE TOTALLY ON OUR OWN!!! PREPARE FOR THAT! (It will be the exact same thing if we have wars on our soil.)

    Food, water and seeds will be more valuable than gold or silver.

    People ARE going to panic and act irrationally. PREPARE FOR THAT!
    Some are going to turn wildly criminal. PREPARE FOR THAT! (Household ammonia will stop an attack – fill party balloons with it and use as grenades – just make sure that YOU are upwind.)

    I’ll give your readers $200 off on any system purchase from http://www.lone-wolf-solar.com to help them prepare. (Because I believe you and your husband are wonderful people!)
    Although the smarter choice would be to invest time and skills now with http://www.sealionsfoundation.com.

    Whether you believe this or not, please prepare for the worst scenario you can imagine.
    The USA is destined to be returned to the 18th century … 1700’s technology. This is written in every publication dealing with the enemies we have within the USA. AND, the UN has decreed it 2 decades ago!

    The White House has been stocking in “survival foods” for the last 2 years. They bought out a Survival Foods Store. Do you wonder why? And why now?
    Major corporations have been building EMP-proof bomb shelters on their properties. Do you have any idea why?

    TAKE THE HINT!
    If “they” know something is going to happen and prepare … shouldn’t YOU be as well-prepared as they are?

    Your readers can send a blank email to: ghostwalker@burningboxes.com with “survival” in the subject line and I’ll send the essentials one needs to survive with style by return email. I have been a licensed “outfitter and survival instructor” since 1974.

  4. 1. Dont trust your government, and do for yourself and in retirement. If you disagree with government protest, vote and do your best to make noise.

    2. Stockpile groceries, you never know when you will need to fend for yourself or friends or family

    3. Try and grow food for yourself thereby becoming less reliant on products or services that you may not agree with how they are grown or delivered
    4. Try and help your neighbor when you can (as an American living in Canada this means just because the Canadian economy is relatively strong compared to most of the world it wasn’t always so and we can do our part to get America back on its feet).

  5. Tammy – thank you for saying that. I’ve always considered Canada a good ally of ours. I have friends and family there.

  7. I have done forensic accounting in the past. Many governmental agencies and corporate agencies are rife with corruption and theft. When people have nothing to lose, they lose it, thus occupy wall street.

    People in America are starving to death and will freeze to death this winter. We are providing some food and shelter for these people. During this harsh American winter many Americans are going to freeze to death and have the choice of eating food or buying fuel to heat their living space with. Or will be homeless and will have a choice of a warm blanket or food. There is where we came in. We can provide them with some food, hygiene supplies and other miscellaneous items.

    Here is a link to an article that shows the sobering stats of Americans.

    We are now serfs on the land that our forefathers settled with their sweat, blood and tears.

    I hope this answers your question somewhat.

  8. IMO the audit should reflect the most important parts, how the money or accounts are managed and who manages what. In the USA we have a series of checks and balances so that the fox doesn’t run the hen house. Obviously it’s not working as the fox is watching the henhouse, ie the mess on wall street.

    The most important aspect of the audit forensic reporting is following the money and finding out who is in charge of what. For example, one bookkeeper should have not access to payroll, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable and the whole shebang. He/she should be manged and overseen by another body who can catch any wrongdoing if that happens.

    The signature line for approving checks or monies dispensed should not be left with one sole signature. For example, any checks over 10K should have 2 signatures, 100K, 3 signatures for example.

    That is about the only thing I can tell you unless I saw your documents or your specific audit.

    But I do want to stay on topic, which is dumpster diving and helping the poor.
