The Calling of the Christian Prepper.

Tom's Journal.

Remember the original idea: IN GOD WE TRUST!!!  Great video !!!  >>>

Thank you,  Grace, for forwarding this fine piece to me, and I am so happy to share it with all my friends and readers!!   I feel so very humbled that a man of my back ground and age 'OUGHT TO ALREADY KNOW AND UNDERSTAND'  ---BUT, somehow slipped by, or forgotten, much to my shame and regret.  I found a few precious pearls of wisdom here that I could certainly use....  especially in our modern climate of a total failure in Communication Skills 101... [Gateway Tech. College- Kenosha, WI, 1989 -- with the good Dr. Kirby]
      But my small degree of education doesn't count for squat !!  ALL Glory goes to God !!  The Holy God of the Bible!

Enjoy, dear friends.

 The Calling of the Christian Prepper: Faith and Survival, by Axgrinder
This article will have little effect on the scoffer, whether a survivalist or not, but is directed toward the Christian who is also conscious of the value of preparation and the duty to provide for family in survival circumstances. It may also be effective for the mind a person who knows little of God but is open to investigate His existence. It is what God has laid on my heart as I read through the great articles and letters here in this forum. Keep up the good work. What I sense though, myself included, is that we, as humans, sometimes get too excited about details at the expense of the greater ideals. We tend to worry and live in fear which is sin.
First of all, what is a Christian?  
There are a lot people who profess to be a Christian, but there are a lot of different beliefs that people have.
A Christian trust in Jesus: that His blood sacrifice forgives our sins, covers our iniquity, justifies our coming into the presence of God, and secures for us eternal life.
"This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” John 17:3
Eternal life is to know God. To truly know someone means that you must live in an interactive relationship with them. How true this is. You truly don’t know someone until you live with them. To truly know God is to live interacting with Him.
We are adopted as children of God, we are co-heirs with Christ. We are to interact with God as our Father and as full members of His family. Being a co-heir carries with it responsibility and thankfulness.
Now, to be a Christian you must believe that the Bible is inerrant, infallible, and inspired by God (Holy Spirit) in its original form. This is a key factor; yet, many who claim to be Christian do not hold this view which leaves them to arrange their idea of reality and truth as they see fit, not as God has revealed. Without a proper belief in Scripture, people, essentially, create a new belief system, a new religion. The Bible is not merely a set of Laws and fantastic stories; but, as I said above, it is a revelation from God. The Bible reveals Laws that reveal what God cares about and what His character is like. The Bible is a whole work, and bits and pieces cannot be disregarded while others are accepted without changing the whole revelation; this is removing from authority God-breathed Scripture to usurp authority for your own. There are interpretive difficulties in Scripture and disagreements regarding meaning (which we must make every attempt to get right through reason, study, debate, and prayer), but for the most part what God is revealing to us in Scripture is plain and effective. The basic truth of God’s character and what He cares about is clear. What God, the only true and Living God – Creator of all things – expects from us is clear. The Father blesses us as He reveals to us what we can and need to know. Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us to love Him by being obedient. The Holy Spirit lives in us and guides us in our relationship.
The Christian is called to rectitude, repentance, and revival. Conformity with your heart in it.
As Christians we are called to:
People will let us down, we should not expect otherwise. God is the only truly reliable promise keeper. This being true does not mean that we as Christians shouldn’t make every effort to be like God. Even though people let us down we must not become cynical and hopeless. In Christ people can be transformed. What we should do is allow God to transform us into disciples.
-Peace and contentment
Christians should be at peace and joyful in all circumstances. It is a sin to worry. It is a sin to be greedy. It is a sin to be selfish.
-At one with Creation
Christians are reinstated as stewards of God’s garden, all creation. We were made for that duty which is to our pleasure.
-Mark of a Christian – LOVE
If you can get a copy of “The Mark of a Christian” by Francis Schaeffer please do read it through carefully. Love is the mark that proclaims the truth of the Gospel to the world, the fruit of righteousness. When Christians love one another as Christ tells us to, with agape love, then the world knows that He truly is Christ. What a huge responsibility; what a great privilege.
-Trust God
As Christians we trust God through all circumstances. We do all things for the glory of God because we know through faith and experience that God is faithful. There is a Hebrew word that I love; hesed, which is translated in different ways with difficulty because there is no English word to do it justice. The NRSV translates itlovingkindness. This word has as part of its rich meaning the idea that the strong party in a relationship does whatever is needed to help the weaker party make the relationship successful. We can trust that God works in our life with unlimited power and perfect love regardless of how it may seem.
“Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire.”  - Hebrews 12:28-29 
-3 Ideals the Christian survivalist should live by:
Matthew 6:19-21
"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
This does not mean that we are not to prepare and store things up that we need. Jesus is saying that we should be more concerned about spiritual treasure than earthly treasure. In the Eastern culture who was the audience fine linens (moth) and coins (rust) were the treasures, the wealth of the day. People put their trust in these perishable things instead of God. The things were not the problem but what their hearts treasured. I really like my SCAR 17, but I treasure my relationship with God.
As we prepare for survival scenarios we must not forget that God is in control; God is sovereign! We must not forget that we have eternal life; we will live with God’s family forever. We must not forget to love God above all and love our neighbors as we do ourselves (God values every life). 
"This is the great and foremost commandment.
"On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."         Matthew 22:37-40
To clarify, (we must always seek clarity of terms, people use words that we think we understand, but of which they have totally different meaning, i.e.: “Christian”), what does Jesus mean by love? We turn to Scripture. A good rule of Biblical interpretation is that “Scripture interprets Scripture”.
“…earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.
If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor,and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”       (1Corinthians 12:31-13:7)
Love is about humbly serving others, self-sacrifice; without love as a motive, what we do is nothing. Yet, if I do love God in the Biblical sense I have great rewards and benefits. I am transformed into a joyful, complete, mature, secure, and strong person. This happens when I experience eternal life (interactive relationship with God), know God. Then I am able to truly love others as myself (because I do love myself in the Biblical sense). There is a proper order here for success in the Christian life; love God, love others.
Matthew 20:25-28
“But Jesus called them to him and said, ‘You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. It will not be so among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be your slave; just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.’"
As we prepare we do it with the intention of being community leaders. Christian leaders are servants who love. Our whole life is to worship God. “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect” (Romans 12:1-2). We prepare to represent and worship God through any disaster or “crunch” situation. Circumstances never change our responsibilities as co-heirs with Christ. We should include in our prepping: insight, investment, and labor in order to help meet community needs. We should be prepared to help victims and those less capable to prepare.
Matthew 28:19-20
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
As Christians all are days are filled with the intention to share with others the Gospel. We are to always be prepared to teach those who seek answers (make disciples). As we prepare our cache of supplies, let us include resources for evangelism and discipleship. Let us include resources for our own personal study and growth. Along with my cases of ammo I should have cases of Bibles and Christian books. We should maintain resources that will help us to maintain solid doctrine and good theology. Keep sets of sermons by your favorite preachers; get all the G. Campbell Morgan you can get!
Survival is important. As Christians we are guaranteed survival. Still, God expects His faithful followers to be His remnant when society crumbles. We are to remain in Him through all circumstances. God makes His appeal to the lost through His people by showing them their great need of Him, there needs to be freed from the slavery of sin, by the lure of love; it is God alone who can save them, redeem them, but He uses us to bring them to see their need and turn to Him. It is the Christian who preaches and serves as we abide in Christ love.
There is so much more that could be said, but I think this is enough to ponder for now. I would love to hear how you personally apply these ideals as Christian “preppers” and survivalist.
For the Christian living in faith is survival at its best, the best we can do toward survival is to live in faith. Let us plan accordingly. Let us plan according to God’s Word, the Bible. Let us plan in accordance with Biblical love as a Church and as evangelist. 
I'll close with a new acronym for SurvivalBloggers to ponder: Forsaking All I Trust Him (FAITH)

In Government We Trust ?

Tom's Journal.

...This short U-tube message is so Cool !  Please click on the Link  >>


Praise be to God, Jah,  Jehovah, YHVH, Father God in Heaven of the KJV Bible !!   Psalm 83:18    Let me make your name know to all men as far as I have that power and Spirit given to me, feeble old, disabled man that I am.   I am honored to be 'used' as a simple, sinner, TOOL, to be an instrument  in the hands of the Lord !!  PTL....  Thank You, Lord.

Well, You all know that I grow ecstatic when something comes my way --- that supports my knowledge and learning concerning the KJV Bible!!!   I have read, studied, so much that my eyes are just about SHOT, and my vision is blurry, and  I have made too many mistakes recently in posting pictures of the 'wrong woman' of the past..... Oh boy !!!  And my wife gave me hell. saying that I did it on purpose to shame her..... duh.   I apologize, and blame it on my poor vision, friends and readers, and I will soon remove those old pix from my documents and files...  just to prove my true intent.  Boy!!   The devil loves to work on my marriage, and throw any wedge/ or monkey wrench into our machinery  if possible !!   Beware of STD -- Satan the devil !!   And that includes such pagan, heathen holidays like HALLOWEEN !!   And please don't hand me a bunch of hoo-ey, "that it's only for the kids....."  -- duh. baloney !!   Go figure:  'Would you serve your kids a bowl of poison, or doggie doo-doo ???   Or dog food ???   Well, the food of Satan is just as dangerous as the other stuff.   And if you are reading this fine post,  you already KNOW what's right and wrong, dear friends....

Jill Marten Rische, is a smart author/ writer, who wrote this post, sanctioned by Jan Markell, and one of my fav. websites, where I know I can find fact and encouragement.   And there are hundreds of other Blogs/ Christian Websites that bear the true fruit of true Christianity.   We don't know how long we can stay on the Net, friends, because the evil 'powers that be' could and will, take us down in a heartbeat !!   You all COULD safe guard some of these good Christian posts and share them with your close friends, if you feel comfortable, or not, in the soon future.

I have struggled with the thought that 'MY time will come" eventfully, because of my boldness in sharing the TRUTH, even in the far, far, Northern Woods, U.P. here.....   and my wife is angry with me for putting out our near co-ordinance in a physical world, with modern ways to track -- who dun it,  where dat man be....  etc....   LOL !   Or, I may just CHOOSE to quit writing, as many folks don't want to post a COMMENT as the end of my offerings.   Will  ONE of  you brave men or women email me.... as to why people don't post a real COMMENT on my humble blog site, please ??   That might restore my faith in humans... LOL Ha!  !

P.S.  I will NOT forward any of my blog posts, etc. to my wife, after THIS one.    Have a great day!

I am a welder...   turned writer.  All my life I dreamt of being a great writer, alone in a beautiful wood land place/ deep Woods, and now I am there.   I had to work hard  all my life,  and was well educated in the skill of welding [ at 2 fine colleges, and plenty of hard work at several welding companies, etc., that put me thru their paces.... lol., Paid my DUES, and then some !!] , also retired, with pension, from AMC/ Chrysler.   I am quite sure that I have paid all my dues for all my working life, and now just want some private time to myself -- to write and publish.    I pay all the bills in the nice, warm house that I live in, plus more.   I am so thankful for all the kind, respected, friends that I have right now, and always look to make more friends that the good Lord gives me.  Thanks!!

Warm Regards,

In Government We Trust?

It is a time of fear and frustration: Christians targeted as enemies and anything related to Christianity removed from the public sector -- the Cross, the Ten Commandments, and even pictures of Jesus. God is despised in the name of reason and science. The government dominates the people, ruling with an iron hand. But it is not the United States of America; it is the French Revolution of 1789, where a government sponsored and media fueled assault on God preceded chaos and despair.
Fast forward now to the 21st century and the attacks against God by the mainstream media and the U.S. Government: no praying wanted at public events, no Cross or Ten Commandments displayed in public places, and certainly no mention of Jesus. Humans are the center of the universe. It's a new millennium but the same old mantra: In government we trust.  
A recent news article described the chaos in Walmarts across America when the EBT or Food Stamp system crashed, giving people unlimited credit. Thousands of store items were pulled off the shelves in a frenzy of fear and greed. It was a "Take everything you can!" moment of epic entitlement. The government will feed us; the government will care for us.  
No God needed here, no trust in His promise of  
"Therefore do not worry saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'...For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things." (Matt 6:32) History repeats itself again, and like Nebuchadnezzar in his rebellion, life will not get better.  
Almost 250 years ago, the United States was a miracle...the first of its kind in the history of the world, fighting for freedom and trusting God to make it happen. On April 16, 1776, Samuel Adams wrote, "They have attempted to subdue us by force but God be praised! in vain. Let us...under God, trust our cause to our swords." Under God -- Samuel Adams was a leader who spoke for many in America and he trusted in God.
On November 16, 1831, the Secretary of the United States Treasury wrote, "No nation can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense." He ordered that "In God We Trust" be placed on American coins because it was something to be proud of -- our heritage and our hope.  
But the End Times are accelerating toward Armageddon, and we have entered the final days when the restraint of the Holy Spirit is lifted and evil prevails. Christians are now the bad guys, the Bible is a fairy tale, and God does not exist.
America, land of the free, has become the home of the "virtual" slave. The little "g" rules again with an iron hand, using technology to transform the world at lightning speed. The NSA tracks our every move; our phones are monitored; our computers, televisions, cars and even thermostats may spy on us; Homeland Security builds an unconstitutional army on American soil; vehicles can be stopped dead on the freeway with a touch of a button; and drones police the sky like the dark world of the Terminator.  
It is a "vale of tears" as someone wrote so long ago, and a world far removed from our heritage of faith.
How can we bear living in such a dark place?
We have this blessed hope that God loves us and He is faithful. We can still choose to trust in Him. He knows those who are His -- He calls them by name -- and He protects them. Even as the secular world turns its back on God to worship the little "g" we still love Him, and He is coming back for us. (Luke 21:28)
In the end, our hope and heritage remains in the Lord, no matter what goes on around us, because we are The Remnant. One day soon everything will change in the twinkling of an eye but as the old hymn says:
            Until then, my heart will go on singing,
            Until then, with joy I'll carry on.
            Until the day my eyes behold the City,
            Until the day God calls me home.
Until then, we have His promises: peace and safety in "the shadow of his wings." He will guide our paths and set a table before us in the presence of our enemies. (Psalm 23)
We remain "joyful in hope and patient in affliction" preaching the Word "in season and out of season" because In God We Trust...and we're going home.

Belshazzar's Feast.

Tom's Journal.

... Please click on the Link below to see and hear a very COOL message from a pretty girl !!   >>>


Thank you, Ruth, for sending this message to me.
I was always excited and amazed at the splendor of older paintings by the "masters."  When I had a chance to see/ visit a famous Art Gallery of older Classic paintings in Washington D.C.,  I was enthralled at a painting of the Serbian Army surrendering to the invading Muslims at Kosovo, Serbia [that occurred perhaps in the 1500's, but never left the minds of future generations of the Serbian people], and some of these great paintings took up a lot of wall space !!    And those special places in D.C. really belong to:  "We the People !"   No Gov't or Administration ought EVER to lock them up, forbidding 'real Americans' to visit and see them !!  My personal belief is that all combat Veterans bought and paid for the right to set all Americans free and guaranteed that special privilege.   


Warm Regards,

I think this is what they all use especially  living here to fool us into accepting them!

Knowing Four Arabic Words May Save Our Civilization from Islamic Takeover

by Louis Palme
In 539 BC, King Belshazzar of Babylon saw a dismembered hand-written four prophetic words on the wall. This "handwriting on the wall" was finally interpreted by the prophet Daniel as predicting the fall of the kingdom. He was right. Babylon fell to the Medes-Persians that very night.
Like the “handwriting on the wall” that Prophet Daniel had interpreted, there are four Arabic words, which could lead to submission of the entire world to Islam, if non-Muslims do not fully understand their meaning and implications. Those words are takiyya, tawriya, kitman, and muruna.
Belshazzar's Feast (Rembrandt)
Rembrandt, Belshazzar’s Feast (1635),
National Gallery, London
Each of these words describes a different style of deception used by Muslims when discussing Islam or their activities as Muslims. Muhammad famously said, “War is deceit.” (Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 52, Number 268)  The Quran boasts that Allah is the “master of all scheming” (Surah 13:42) and that he is “profound in his machinations” (Surah 8:30). Western civilizations are not accustomed to dealing with people, who have developed deception into an art form. Knowledge is power, and the best way to combat the Islamist agenda is to say, “We are wise to your shenanigans. Knock it off!”
Takiyya is defined as dissimulation about ones Muslim identity. It comes from the verse in the Quran that says, “Let believers not make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful – he that does has nothing to hope for from Allah – except in self-defense (illaa an-tattaqu minhum tuqah) (Surah 3:28). This “self-defense” justifies dissimulation. Islamic Sharia Law provides, “When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.” (Reliance of the Traveler, Para r8.2) Examples include lying to protect Islam or a Muslim.
Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called “creative lying”. It is OK to break the intent of the oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath. (Reliance of the Traveler, sections o19.1 and o19.5) How does this work? Suppose someone protests that Surah 1 of the Quran demeans Christians and Jews, because it is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day to keep them from the path of “those with whom God is angry” and “those who have lost their way”. A Muslim might respond, “Surah 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practicing tawriya, because while Surah 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, but he knows full-well that the words “those” refer to Jews and Christians.
Another example would be when a Muslim responds to your greeting of “Merry Christmas!” He might say, “I wish you the best.” In your mind, you think he has returned a Christmas greeting. In actuality, he has expressed his wish for you to convert to Islam; he wishes the best for you which, in his view, is becoming a Muslim.
Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. The most common example of this is when a Muslim says that jihad really refers to an internal, spiritual struggle. He is not telling “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”, as witnesses are sworn to do in U.S. courts. Often, kitman results in a gross distortion of the truth. In the example given, the Quran uses jihad and its derivatives 59 times. Of those, only 16 (27%) could be considered “internal” with no object as the target of the struggle based on the context of the surah.
Another common form of kitman is to quote only the few peaceful passages from the Quran, knowing full-well that that passage was later abrogated by a more militant, contradictory verse. Here is an example:
“There is no compulsion in religion” (Surah 2:256) Early Medina
“Are they seeking a religion other than Allah’s, when every soul in the heavens and earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?” (Surah 3:83 Later Medina)
Another example:
“Permission to take up arms is hereby given to those who are attacked, because they have been wronged.” (Surah 22:39) Late Mecca
“When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” (Surah 9:5) Late Medina
Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings. The justification for this kind of deception is a somewhat bizarre interpretation of Surah 2:106, which says, “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by a better one or similar.” Thus, Muslims may forget some of the commands in the Quran, as long as they are pursuing a better command. Muslims striving to advance Islam, therefore, can deviate from their Islamic laws in order to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and place their trust in their Muslim counterpart.
At times, Muslims practice muruna in the same way a chameleon changes colors to avoid detection. Muslims will sometimes shave off their beards, wear western clothing, or even drink alcohol to blend in with non-Muslims. Nothing is more valuable these days to the Islamists than a blue-eyed Caucasian Muslim willing to engage in terrorism.
Another common way of using muruna is for a Muslim to marry a non-Muslim or to behave like a non-Muslim so their true agenda will not be suspected. The 9/11 hijackers visited strip clubs and bars during their off-times while taking classes in the U.S. to fly airplanes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and the White House. Many Americans believe Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, married Jewish Congressman Anthony Weiner at least in part to burnish her security credentials so she could infiltrate the highest levels of the Administration.
The implications of these highly-honed tactics of deception could be enormous for unassuming Western societies. Twenty years ago, psychologist Paul Ekman wrote an insightful book, “Telling Lies”, which demonstrated that people give off recognizable clues when they are practicing deceit. Their consciences cause them, involuntarily, to sweat or raise their voices or make other recognizable gestures. However, Dr. Ekman’s research was exclusively with people from Western cultures. Muslims, on the other hand, show no discernible signs when they are being deceitful because there is no feeling of guilt. In their minds they are doing exactly what Allah wants them to do to advance Islam. Because any Western person who has raised children knows almost intuitively when someone is lying, so they assume they can do that in all cases. Unfortunately, those same Western people can be easily duped by Islamic deceit because there are no tell-tale signs in the deceiver.
Hopefully, this article will be a wake-up call to the unsuspecting infidels. Trust but verify – as was an old American strategy in dealing with potentially hostile parties – is the way to go in dealing with Islamists.

Americans Leaving the Country !!  ---  you might need a stiff drink after reading this piece...  LOL !

Americans Leaving Country

Over 150,000 Americans departed the former land of liberty for greener pastures overseas in the past year. In total, over five million Americans are choosing to live outside the United States. Just why are Americans leaving this land of freedom and opportunity in record numbers, with no end in sight?
America has historically been the beacon of freedom and the land of opportunity which has attracted tens of millions of immigrants to the shores of our once great country in search of a better way of life. The reminders to our presumed national good fortune are constant as we are bombarded by messages from the corporate controlled media about how good we have it in American and people have it so good here that anyone desiring to leave should be considered crazy. Yet, despite the media propaganda about how good we have it in America, Americans are leaving the country at breakneck speed and the annual rate of expatriation is growing as over 150,000 Americans departed the former land of liberty for greener pastures overseas in the past year. In total, over five million Americans are choosing to live outside the United States. Just why are Americans leaving this land of freedom and opportunity in record numbers, with no end in sight?
The expatriation is mostly confined to the upper middle class. However, we can rightly assume that a general level of discontent exists among the middle class as well.
First and foremost, Americans no longer live in the highest salary paying country in the world. In fact, the United States does not even crack the top ten list of the highest salary paying countries on the planet in which Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Japan, Norway, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom round out the top ten and pay their workers more than workers in the United States. In fact, the United States only ranks 20th in terms of overall gross pay!
Young adults who are degreed and/or skilled in fields such as engineering or information technology skills, are really wasting their time in the United States. Eight of the world’s ten highest-paying countries for information technology (IT) managers are in Western Europe, according to a new survey by Mercer Human Resource Consulting. The survey found that Swiss managers are paid the most, followed by those in Germany and Denmark. In fact, IT management is another field where U.S. workers fail to crack the top ten in income, the United States ranks 14th in IT management compensation. Even debt ridden Spain, Italy and Greece may their IT managers more than what Americans earn on average.
What about post-secondary education, don’t we offer great and affordable post-secondary education? Surely, our universities and colleges, renowned around the planet for their trend setting research endeavors, must offer a quality education. Unfortunately, for our young people seeking a quality and affordable education, in order to compete on a global scale in which they must have access to the best and most cost effective education system in the world, we have left our students hanging. The Education Policy Institute assessed the affordability of higher education costs and found that the United States ranks 13th in higher education affordability. The results of the EPI’s findings are as follows:
The Netherlands
Belgium (Flemish Community)
Belgium (French Community)
United States
Moreover, the college loan practices, in the United States, which serve to underwrite much of the cost of a college education, are the most predatory in the world. As of this year, bankruptcy cannot cancel out a student loan debt and delinquent college students can now go to jail for nonpayment. In fact, several federal agencies have even “swat teamed” many delinquent student loan defaulters. Nowhere else in the world can we find evidence of these types of predatory practices being used against college students as we do here in the United States.
Furthermore, if you live in America, you are not getting the best pension package compared to other Western nations as America ranks last in overall pension benefits. And this is in the backdrop of the Obama Administration, in anticipation of second term, laying in wait to seize your 401k pensions. This planned theft by the Obama Administration will prove to be a devastating blow to the American middle-class and will provide a knockout punch to any hope that the middle class clings to when it comes to transmitting wealth to their children and we are only a couple of short years from realizing this inevitability. At least in Greece, the people rioted when the Goldman Sachs run government stole the people’s pensions to pay the down the bankers part of the derivatives debt. Conversely, Americans are merely laying down and accepting the fact that Obama and his minions are planning to steal your bank accounts, your social security, your public pensions and your 401k accounts. In no civilized country in the world do the banks have the right to steal money from citizen depositors. However, in America, this is already being accomplished as ex-Goldman Sachs CEO and ex-senator and ex-governor, John “the Don” Corzine, stole 1.2 billion dollars from secured deposits from MF Global, lied to congress about his actions and today is enjoying the fruits of his thievery.
Let’s not forget that the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals who just ruled that banks can steal the money of its depositors and it is legal! This would have been a SHTF moment in every other Western country, but Americans are taking this grand theft on their backsides, sipping a beer and bemoaning the performance of the NFL replacement referees.
Well, we may not have our money, but at least we have our health. Unfortunately, that is not quite true either as the United States spends more than the next 12 nations for health care. However, it seems as if we are spending more and enjoying it less as, despite our exorbitant spending on health care, the United States ranks 50th in the world in life expectancy. Cuba, Puerto Rico and Spain have higher life expectancies than the United States. Americans live in the only country in the world where its citizens cannot bargain shop for its medicines in foreign countries because the pharmaceuticals have convinced congress to establish a pharmaceutical monopoly over US citizens…

One Response to Americans Leaving Country

Here, Have a Cup of Poison.

Tom's Journal.

...  Please clink on the Link, for a 'too cool' message, from a pretty lady >>>


OK, Friends,
Let me just offer this one disclaimer, please:   Though everything you read here today in this post may come true...  always remember that God will NEVER leave His servants in a pickle !!   He always "makes a way out" -- even if that may be 'death.'   But then few people on Earth really understand the Bible kind of death!  In reality, you, I, and every living person, will be in this Universe FOREVER!   It's just a matter of 'WHERE WILL WE SPEND IT.'   Go figure,  you could be on an island forever -- but filled with every imaginable gift, treasure, and pleasure known to man, and then some!   Being a middle class farm boy in Wisconsin --  fellow students in my school could never imagine how other folks could live in a big, corrupt, drug filled ghettos, breathing foul, polluted air, with constant crime, murder, rape and theft every single day !!  At one point a few cities in Wisconsin were said to be the best places  in the USA to raise a family, years ago!  Fresh air, pure drinking water, good jobs, education, low crime, that old time religion -- followers of Jesus Christ !  Wow!   But now, in 2013,  even remote, way U.P. Northern MI, and WI, are starting to see a little more crime.... like more DUI's, drugs, and a little theft.    People U.P. here are still kind, friendly, generous, respectful, courteous and law abiding.  PTL.  I am very thankful to live in such a nice area-- although the Winters are pretty cold, long,  and snowy.  
     My wife is always busting her anatomy, working out side and inside the house, making things work, beautiful, up-graded, safer, and better.  Our back yard is a little chunk of Paradise!  I appreciate all her hard work, and tell her so, often.   But taking in a larger portion of God's Word is also very important, especially in these End Times, IMHO.  To that end my poor eyes are going bad because [for one thing] I do so much daily reading, probably about 4-5 hours per day....  and not just 'on-line.'   But I also inherited the genes from my parents, and the body will start breaking down at my present age.   Even Arnold Schwarzenegger's body has lost some tone.    His early movies got me into serious power lifting a long time ago, but after I retired from AMC/ Chrysler,  my body went down hill fast too, mainly because my knees were bad and hurtful.  
     Remember back in Genesis, God plagued the ancient Egyptians by laughing and brings shame on their false gods....  like the river gods, some insects, etc., that they worshiped.   Today God is doing the same thing to America's gods...  like the "god of money,"  the god of sex, immorality, etc.  Below is a pretty good picture of what is happening to our 'god of money $$$$$ !'    What ever we love most,  the Lord God will trash it but good--- IF we continue to be following false gods, acting immoral, and trashing Israel !!  Remember, also,  It's the 'LOVE of money that is the root of all evil !!'  Not just money in itself, folks.   We need money in this system, to pay our bills, live, eat, etc.   But we certainly have not be very balanced, have we ?    And just look at the way our Gov't mismanages our tax money, by giving it to those who REFUSE to work, even though they are able-bodied and well!  The other half of society will grow weary supporting those liberals in the ghettos who don't work and contribute.   And many of those folks can't read and write so well, nor do they have many working skills, and WHY SHOULD THEY?  The Gov't has kept some families in/ on  welfare for many generations now --- ever since LBJ !!   They can't all be sick and injured from cradle to grave!  But they know how to vote, don't they...  Pro-Lib-Democrat--Progressive... lol.  
   Reading the Proverbs  sheds much light on how God feels about laziness, and many other important things in life.   You can't miss knowing "God's Mind" and exactly how He feels about everything  when you read the KJV Bible on a regular basis.   Please see:   [where to buy the DEFINED KJV  Bible].   Take care, friends.

    I bought an extra thick, longer, black, wider belt today ---  to hold my pants up...  etc.  I am dang tired of losing my pants!

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

10.26.13 - The International Monetary Fund Lays The Groundwork For Global Wealth Confiscation
The entire system is built on debt, there is nothing left and the system is collapsing, the only way to keep it propped up is to steal from the people. This is what happened in Cyprus and this is whats going to happen all across the globe. The US, UK, Canada, Eurozone, Swiss have already created white papers which allow these countries to do bail-ins and take money from the people to keep the system going.

  • The International Monetary Fund (IMF) quietly dropped a bomb in its October Fiscal Monitor Report. Titled “Taxing Times,” the report paints a dire picture for advanced economies with high debts that fail to aggressively “mobilize domestic revenue.” It goes on to build a case for drastic measures and recommends a series of escalating income and consumption tax increases culminating in the direct confiscation of assets.
  • Yes, you read that right. But don’t take it from me. The report itself says:
  • “The sharp deterioration of the public finances in many countries has revived interest in a “capital levy”— a one-off tax on private wealth—as an exceptional measure to restore debt sustainability. The appeal is that such a tax, if it is implemented before avoidance is possible and there is a belief that it will never be repeated, does not distort behavior (and may be seen by some as fair). … The conditions for success are strong, but also need to be weighed against the risks of the alternatives, which include repudiating public debt or inflating it away. … The tax rates needed to bring down public debt to precrisis levels, moreover, are sizable: reducing debt ratios to end-2007 levels would require (for a sample of 15 euro area countries) a tax rate of about 10 percent on households with positive net wealth.
