More clues that the USA cannot be saved...

Well I have been busier than a one legged man in a but kicken contest... But scanning the headlines I get to see more and more evidence daily that all the things we do to live sustainably, to prepare for bad times ahead, and to get back to a foundation of living that is connected with the earth, our communities, and most importantly our creator.  I see a headline about Cruz, Rubio, and Paul fighting over the budget...  The insane, out of control spending ORGY is more like it...  The front runners for the GOP 2016 presidential run... MORE spending, BIGGER spending... Defense spending???? Seriously?  We have so much military hardware that we have to dump it on local police departments all over the US and we need more spending?  More equipment?  More CRAP?  We are already turning the US into a militarized police zone... It is time to put this bloated PIG on a diet...

Only one of the bunch with the testicles to say so?  Rand Paul... His chances of winning the White House?  Sadly they are slim... The other so called saviors of the GOP?  Nope, lets pour on the money baby....  Our mantra... BORROW until someone tells us NO....

Given the obvious minority status of anyone saying put this pig on a diet it is all too clear that what we prepare for, what we are doing is very important.  How long can this drunken orgy of spending continue?  Your guess is as good as mine, but I can tell you this that the work it takes to be prepared for the chaos and disaster that is coming is great... So don't WAIT!  Get busy now... Plant some trees, start a bee hive or two, get some chickens, grow a garden... If you don't have your defense plan figured out then you better be looking at some "hardware" to protect you, your family, your community... The devils come to the USA looking for lots of souls to steal... 

Here is the article... It is heart breaking, but it clearly shows the clues that the future of this country is very very bleak if those with common sense are such a minority.  Get ready!

2016 brawl breaks out on Senate Floor

Take care and God Bless,

PS, Here at our urban homestead we are putting in Back to Eden garden beds, preparing to plant trees and berries, and getting ready to put out our first plants into our beds...  Exciting times!  What things are you doing to Be Prepared?
