20-Aug-2011 HOW TO GET PREPARED, AND BE PREPARED! The Second Global Financial Crisis is Already on the Way! Many experts who I've been getting daily emails from since late last year and one for many, many years, KNOW the TRUE situation in America, Europe, and the world, and are saying over and over that we are in for a time of hardships like we've never even vaguely experienced before, nor could even imagine possible. Which is exactly why they deliberately say shocking things like, "America is toast!" - not to freak anyone out (or to "big-mouth" themselves) but as a WARNING of what's coming (world-wide) - so that we have time to get ourselves ready!!! And I've just read that the Rating Agency Standard and Poors are finally saying the same thing!! SERIOUS WARNING: the human psyche seems to be hard-wired to reject or ignore the possibility that things WILL get worse, or that bad things will/may happen - "Oh, it'll work out somehow," is the NORMAL response. The psyche believes that the status quo WILL continue - despite the fact that right NOW is a time where this simply will NOT happen. Given this mental difficulty, your mind may reject or ignore or put off all or most of what I've written below. Please DON'T let this happen! 1. Security from Riots, etc. (a) With food already getting dearer and will get even worse and/or harder and harder to get, make sure you've investigated and planned for a place to go to out of the city in the event of food riots, looting, or even breakdown of law and order.! (b) Near to farmers that grow common foods would be a fairly major plus for obvious reasons. 2. Food (a) Learn how to grow your own food. You could then even "partner" with a farmer. Learn how to keep chickens for eggs (and even goats for milk). (b) If that's not practical for you, then you should get food stored to last for some years. Do this NOW - BUT you need to know HOW to do it right, so go to this good URL: http://www.shtfplan.com/emergency-p...-food-items-that-can-last-a-lifetime_04042011. I like the approach of this lady, Tess. Practical, yet edible, and lasts. Ensure you click the links at bottom of article too, to get the right storage containers. 3. Water (a) You cannot rely on the municipal water supply. How to store water, and how much, is on this URL, by Tess also: http://readynutrition.com/resources/are-you-ready-series-emergency-water-supply_16112009/. A serious power outage could mean unreliable or no water availability. Plus when it returns the water quality may be questionable. We can live but a few days without water. We need it to drink and also for cooking. (b) There are 3 aspects of water for survival: quality, purification and storage. All these are briefly covered in this video to give you an introduction to what you need for water safety: . 6. Medical. I think it's obvious that households should have a decent medical kit. But whether or no, NOW is the time to get one for your family. 7. Money. (a) One major piece of advice is to have cash on hand at all times. Obviously you will need to be very DILIGENT about keeping it safe, both at home and on when you have it on your person. American Dollars continue to be worth less and less, i.e., they are losing their value and buying power both at home and abroad. But they are what you'll normally need in order to purchase things during the coming crisis. (b) But if America goes to inflation, and hyper-inflation, then paper money will have little value ,along with Stocks (think: a loaf of bread costing $75 or more). Experts advise stocking up on gold and silver for such a time, but this is not easy for Americans to do (it's much easier for us here in Australia). A gold coin containing just one ounce of Gold may cost (say) $1,800 - and you can't cut it up into little pieces to purchase things! (c) Silver coins, however, are considerably less expensive, especially what are called Junk Silver Coins, and would be an easier way to hold something with a lesser intrinsic value (than gold), especially if paper dollars have almost no value. So junk silver coins may be the best bet - but you need to get onto this VERY quickly before they are all gone! Contact Van Simmons at: http://www.davidhall.com/. If he has none left, ask for help to find some. 8. Transport (a) It's pretty obvious that an efficient all-electric vehicle is really the only option during a serious crisis time like this. (b) But with no power grid to charge it up, it could be useless. So you need to be able to produce your own power. 9. Producing Your Own Electricity (a) It's rather sad that solar panels are still so expensive. But to set up a bank of them on a house in the country connected to battery storage, makes you self-sufficient (day and night) for ALL power needs, including an electric vehicle. (b) Depending where you settle, a concern about this could be others not liking what you have. (I'd want to be well "hidden!") (c) There may be a cheaper and easier way to generate enough power for basic needs, that wouldn't tell the whole world what you've got. I'm checking this NOW. NOTE: I WILL UPDATE THIS POST WITH ANY FURTHER THINGS I THINK MAY HELP MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!! Finally, this basic introduction is just that. You can follow your own investigations on the Net and locally to get yourself fully READY for what's to come. For without some kind of MAJOR miracle to save the world (considered virtually impossible) this will be "The Big One!" - Global Financial Crisis #2, which has ALREADY started!! Various dramatic events may then come seemingly without warning. You need to get READY! That's why I've said above for you to start preparing right NOW!! Trust, prepare, and be safe!! - BM Now I have to write the awful but serious Disclaimer that is necessary in our world today...
