THEY are plotting again. Some will survive. Guess who.
Like it or not, a national emergency is coming
Some will survive, some will not. Guess who.

By Thomas Horn
Raiders News Network

PORTLAND -- Today, a strange paradox exists. The threat of actual or false-flag terrorism has escalated, the possibility of an American Hiroshima is greater than ever, weather patterns are behaving irregularly and gateways through biotechnology could unleash upon earth pestilence of biblical proportions. People around the world feel uneasy about what tomorrow might bring.

Yet many people, especially in America, are indifferent to the need to prepare for the unexpected, to be self-sufficient and ready to survive.

One reason some neglect preparedness is a peculiar defeatism that says, "If bad things are going to happen, there's nothing we can do about it anyway." In a word -- dumb.

A second, more likely reason for failing to prepare has to do with how well off we are in the United States. We trust in our bank accounts to sustain us. Unfortunately, money sitting in savings and investments are useless if one becomes stuck in a landslide or other crisis.

Perhaps the greatest reason why some people never plan for disaster is that they view the need to prepare for the unexpected as too complicated and costly. They imagine the back yard being dug up for construction of a massive bomb shelter and the basement crammed with row after row of dry grains and large containers filled with backup water.

The truth is, survival preparation is modestly affordable. Under most circumstances, the ability for individuals to remain mobile for a few days to a couple weeks by simply grabbing an inexpensive "survival kit" and heading out is more important than silos filled with long-term storage foods.

Even when we envision a worst-case scenario such as a terrorist nuke or ICBM exchange, low-cost shelters that can be built at home and combined with a minimal amount of Potassium Iodide, would help keep as much as 99 percent of the population alive, according to one synopsis by the Department of Homeland Security, which envisioned a 10-kiloton bomb going off in Washington, D.C. Simple designs for building practical radiation shelters are available free online at places like SurvivorMall.com.

While having to try to endure radioactive fallout is a growing possibility, the fact is that most people are more likely to face disaster as a result of things like nature.

Just this week searchers found a climber's body in a snow cave near the summit of Mount Hood in Oregon, nine days after three mountaineers became lost. Almost every year we hear of people getting stranded on this mountain, a popular ski and hiking area located about 50 miles southeast of Portland.

Weeks before that a journalist became lost in a snowstorm on his way to the Oregon coast, and died of exposure and hypothermia as he sought help for his snowbound wife and children.

Who can forget the initial and post-hurricane struggle to survive by victims of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in late August and early September 2005. These were some of the deadliest hurricanes in United States history and cost billions of dollars in damage.

So ... how do you get your personal preparedness plan started?



If you haven't made or purchased an emergency survival kit, do that right away. If you build your own go-bag or survival kit, make sure to include five-year-shelf-life food and water (most store products will spoil over time or require refrigeration), thermal blankets, and a radio-flashlight combination that does not require batteries. Look at one of the pre-made kits at SurvivorMall.com and copy what you see there. You should include enough of the basic survival products stored in a single safe place at home to cover each member of your family for at least one week. I also suggest you place a "walk-out kit" in each vehicle that you or family members might use for long trips. If you do nothing else, at least do this.

Consider your particular situation. Do you live in the country or city? In a home or apartment? Do you have kids? Pets? Specific medical needs or prescription drugs? Think about what it would take for each member of your family to have the things they need besides food, water and shelter, to stay healthy. Create a list of these items and where they are located in your home. Place that list in several safe places as well as each survival bag and the glove box of every vehicle.

Finally:


Place copies of your important documents in a waterproof and portable container (insurance cards, birth certificates, deeds, photo IDs, etc.).

Have an extra set of car and house keys.

Study: Most people don't plan ahead

Published: June 15, 2007 at 6:32 AM

YORK, England, June 15 (UPI) -- Contrary to economic theory, British researchers found that people often do not plan ahead when formulating a plan of action.
University of York researchers say the findings may have implications for public policy on long-term financial planning.

In a series of studies, the researchers show that when faced with a decision-making process designed to test whether they plan ahead, more than half those taking part fail to think ahead.

One experiment included two decision points, each of which gave two options. It was designed so decision makers who planned ahead achieved the best outcome, while those that did not took a route that only appeared to be most favorable. Thirty-six percent took the optimal decision at the first node, while 97 percent did at the second node.

Re: THEY are plotting again. Some will survive. Guess who.
An important step in bringing a desired circumstance/condition from imagination to reality is entering the mental state you would have were your desire already manifest. This can be aided by doing physical actions similar to what you might do were the desire already real (like walking down the block imagining your on an exotic beach). To condition yourself mentally for an UNDESIRED event in the manner described in the article would be beyond stupid. It would be like trying to fireproof your home by dosing it with gasoline, lighting a match and observing what burns first. Always act from a position of strength, not fear.

If you do it right the desire will be made manifest before you even recognized you wanted it. I guess in your case the thing you least desire will appear before you know you don't want it?

Abstract

This article examines the economic organization of the trans-Saharan slave trade between the fourteenth and nineteenth centuries on those routes that moved slaves from Sudanic Africa via entrepôts in the Sahel and Sahara to the Maghrib. The commercial framework of this trade was integrated into ethnic, cultural, and religious systems, yet for its efficient operation could not rely solely on these social institutions. Temporary cooperation of itinerant slave traders is considered and then projected onto the broader patterns of commercial organization. It is shown that similar pressures resulted in comparable outcomes: partnerships were formed to take advantage of economies of scale in commercial services and to limit cooperation problems. This demonstrates that the organization of the trans-Saharan slave trade was economically rational and can be analysed in terms of cooperative and non-cooperative strategies. Moreover, it is argued that the trade was not restrained by social institutions but versatile in adapting its economic institutions to specific market imperfections. It is concluded that recent economic models are more useful in explaining the economic behaviour of slave traders than conventional neoclassical economics.

That reminds me of a joke.

A christian was at home. The police came by and said the dam broke and there was a flood comming. The preacher said 'God will save me.'
Then the flood came and a guy on a boat said to the christian, 'get on my boat' and the christian said 'God will save me.'
The next day his house is flooded and he is on the roof. A heliocopter comes by....blah blah blah.


Anyway....God said 'Did you know I gave you legs?' or something like that....


LOL
