Hello Friends, and Comrades,
I know that for one reason or another, right now, many people are looking for ways to 'trim down 2 things,' ---Their stomachs, and their Credit Card-- I.O.U.-- bottom line $$$$ --Debt load ! ! Some people have said: like in the movie, True Grit, 'having enough is the same as having a feast.' I have noticed a few things in my life of writing, and starting a "Journal" way back in High School... And just maybe that is why I so love the books of Psalms and Proverbs. It's Wisdom --- from Above ! Lord, I could have saved myself so many huge, diverse problems and challenges in my life IF, IF, I would have/ could have been tutored and steeped in the Bible earlier ! There in lies most of the answers of Life !
Now, this is related to the main text and body of this post today, borrowed and pasted down below.
We might even say that Abram [later changed to Abraham by God], was sort of a "Prepper." Because, the book of Genesis, Chapter 13, verse 2, says: "And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold." Now... Abraham was called a "Friend" by God, so that means that many times, God blesses His servants and worshippers, and there is nothing WRONG with having money and material things !! OK, I know that many people love to tell me that investing in 'Metals" is not good, because you cannot EAT silver, gold, platinum, palladium, copper, and other metals. Yes! That is true... but Abram also had CATTLE, so he could tell one or more of his servants to go out and put another T-bone steak on the grill ! Beer was made by the early Egyptians and Babylonians, [but perfected by the Germans, many years later] but Abram probably had plenty of good wine to wash down the onions, carrots and beef steaks. The apostle Paul not only preached and taught the Gospel all over the Mediterranean area and parts of Asia Minor, but he also was a tent maker and paid his own way. Matthew was into Finance, and Peter was a fisherman, etc, etc. Everyone had some sort of trade or skill. So Paul was the Apostle who said: 'If you don't work -- you don't eat.' Check it out, fellows ! You can just 'click on the blue Links.'
2 THESSALONIANS 3:10 KJV "For even when we were with you ...
2 Thessalonians 3:10 KJV: For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. ... I don't know you.
... "The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat." ... NT Letters: 2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were
But right now my back hurts so bad that I can hardly walk. So, I bought another, strong, leather belt today, from "Bull Hide Belts," and hope that might help me, but I will also seek medical advice very soon, too.
Ha! I call my Mom in Wisconsin often, because I love and miss her, and she keeps asking me if I have anyone U.P. here to love me.... And I tell her that 'I have God to help me, and the VA...' I spoke to a combat Marine to day at WalMart about the people U.P. here in the far North of Michigan, and he gave me his honest opinion, so then I gave him my business card, and a bible tract, and he smiled as he walked away. I could tell that he was 'messed up' by war and combat... but I said to him, "We should get together for breakfast sometime !" Without my power scooter, I simply could not shop these days. But I have a friend that is willing to shop for me, and I pay for her gas, etc. I know how to treat people RIGHT, and show KINDNESS and appreciation ! !
Let me please explain what a "Realist" is. It's someone who wants to be an optimist, but he is educated in many ways and skills and talents with some godly Wisdom too. So, he [or she] looks ahead at the future in INVESTS in a number of "Probable Possibilities and Outcomes" in life. It's just like we were trained in Finance to help people pick the RIGHT kind of investment by giving them a short, simple, test, to see 'how much risk' they could stand. Remember, that there are all kinds of risks in life, and we hear of movie stars and important people losing their shirts and skirts in bad deals or some 'get rich quick scam.' You might be able to do that when you are young.... by taking a big hit, or loss, but not when you are older, so you change things or tweak them as you get older -- into "Safer" investments, etc.. So you really want to be on the 'husband and wife's side' to make sure that they invest correctly and wisely. Personally, when I invested at Chrysler's investment opportunity system, with no charges or fees when I "tweaked" them, as I was into 3 different sorts of Mutual Funds that I picked out ----- and I did well, and made a bundle $$$ ! But I knew what I was doing ! I have also helped a number of friends took, after I finally got Securities licensed working at PFS Investments, when I lived in Kenosha, WI.
Investing in the FUTURE also means, spending quality time and effort with the KJV Bible... maybe one hour per day, but that amount is up to you, not me. Maybe 2 hours of study per week ! Now, believe it or not, it is really the husband's JOB to teach and prepare his wife and children's heart and mind --- in weekly bible study ! And finding a 'good, bible teaching church in your area MIGHT just be impossible, now days, as many are leaning into the Muslim/ Islamic view/ and mind set.... which is a horrible sin that will bring all sorts of sorrows on your heads.... and Jesus is not so far away, these days. We must be prepared now for anything to happen.
And just look at how much DAMAGE Obama is doing right now to drag America down low and stabbing our only Democratic Freedom loving Israel in the back before Christmas !! Ask Congress, or demand that Congress hold on at all costs, until Mr. Trump takes over and hopefully 'Drains the Swamp' and kills the poisonous snakes. He will need a new Army for that huge chore ! But I am sure that all of our Military and Veterans would gladly follow Trump to the Gates of Hell !
But still, beware the 'Puppet Masters' controlling the world, who can and will dump all of the rotten trash on Mr. Trump to hamper his cleaning job, and that is why I posted this blog post tonight. Please check it out, friends.
I know that right now the Stock Market is going UP, UP, UP, because of Mr. Trump, and it makes people feel great !! I just want you all to beware, because, "What goes up -- must come down." And History teaches us that a super crash of the Market always follows a big Stock Market rally and euphoria !!
So, we must be prepared in every possible way, friends. I am not fully prepared yet, either. I am up here all alone without a support group of any kind ! I guess that is part of my own fault, as I show poor judgment too many times, and trust the wrong kind of people.... stupid me. And the name of that Marine I mentioned before at the store, was, Tom.

Oh.... I can't wait to get that special belt I just ordered today, and that might just help support my back and stomach better.
Here’s Where You Absolutely Don’t Want to Be “When It All Turns Ugly”
a) have exploded with crime, riots and unrest
b) have provided sanctuary for millions of illegal immigrants that have destabilized the country
c) are going bankrupt and will be unable to fulfill pension obligations, or pay their share of social security, welfare, etc.
d) have been foremost in advocating gun control, and ensuring that only criminals and police have guns, while 2nd Amendment arm-bearing citizen have flocked to the rural areas where their rights are not generally restricted
e) will be the first places to be become unstable during any major crisis – as soon as grocery store shelves go empty. Martial law will be the only way to maintain stability, and that will come at a further price to liberty.
f) will be the first place to line up for FEMA camps and beg for food, shelter and rations, again, at a further price to liberty
Of course, there are many more items that could be added to the list, but it gets tedious, and I think everyone gets the point.
Liberal havens have become largely clueless about the real world about them, and have turned a blind eye to the destabilizing forces that are compounding upon them.
IF/WHEN the SHTF, these will be the absolute last places you’d want to be caught dead.
IF you were clueless enough to believe Hillary’s lies and endorse the collapsing establishment line, then there’s a very good chance that you’ll have no idea what to do when the system breaks down. You will either help fuel or be caught up in chaos, violence and desperation – don’t let that be you.
As All News Pipeline reported:
Getting as far away from the large population hubs in America as possible should be looked at as ‘survival rule #1’ as ‘population density’ is one of the most important survival criteria. And with America’s large cities overwhelmingly voting for Hillary Clinton and ‘snowflake’ after ‘cupcake’ having nervous breakdowns recently, finding a place out in the mountains or the country should be a priority for anyone still stuck in the cities or large suburbs. Should chaos strike, would you rather ‘already be where you’re going’ or stuck with 100,000 or more ‘cupcakes’ trying to ‘get away’ from the madness?And as SHTF noted last week:
Places like Baltimore, Detroit, Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia and other cities across the map are still deeply divided often police and race issues. Many have seen serious riots, looting and unrest. These social wedge issues are still being pushed from moneyed political interests, while political divide after the direction of the country has become sharp.When these cities break down, you’re going to want to be far away from them, and far from the path of millions exiting them and looking for food, resources… and anything they can take.
Dallas, Texas just suspended pension payments for some of its civil servants, a sign that financial insolvency could create an epidemic during the next crisis. Several states, like California, have over promised benefits to state employees in the pension programs, without ever planning to pay for them. If people lose it, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and the whole of the surrounding areas could simply erupt. Similar problems have left Detroit, Michigan and Puerto Rico, the commonwealth island, extremely vulnerable to bankruptcy and economic apocalypse that could contaminate the nation and global within hours.
If a natural disaster, such as a hurricane, hits the East or Gulf Coast, tens of millions of people could be caught up in traffic, locked in cities without food, and desperate to cling to order and survive. Likewise, if a major earthquake hit the West Coast, millions could be displaced and left without many options. That’s when things turn ugly.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays… and stay out of harm’s way, whether it be in these disaster zone cities, or any other known risk potential.
Stay prepped, and stay focused on what may prove to be a difficult time ahead.
