I didn’t write anything yesterday, partly because I worked hard outdoors and the heat fries my brain a bit, but mostly because I was thinking about the question of being ready and how I might not be doing you a service by yammering on about wonkish policy, or which evil-doer we admitted to America has killed or raped someone, or which creep ripped off the SNAP program or Medicaid/Medicare as if everything was normal.
It isn’t normal and I was firmly reminded of that when my friend Leo Hohmann’s post was sent to me in an e-mail from another friend asking if she and her husband could come live on our farm. I chirped back that they were welcome as long as they brought their arsenal.
In recent days another friend told me he and his wife abruptly sold their home in Washington, DC and moved temporarily to Florida. They had lived near the Friendship Heights section of DC that was wrecked by rioters in late May. But, it wasn’t the noise at night from on-going unrest, it was the fact that some of their neighbors were “taking a knee” in the street and making sure others in the neighborhood were informed of their capitulation to the mob that sent them south.
So how am I not doing you a service?
Well, first you must read Leo Hohmann’s post from two days ago entitled:
Welcome to the new abnormal: How to survive the growing civil unrest
(I’m not even going to snip any of it because I want you to read it all!)
So how am I doing you a disservice?
My blogging is simply adding to your addiction to the news and taking time away from what you must be doing now—you and your family must get ready for the unimaginable as November approaches and that is the possible breakdown of civil society.
I know most of you are addicted to reading news (so am I), and it makes you feel good (maybe even smug) because you know that you know more than most people around you about what is happening with the presidential campaign, the Left’s strategies, or what dirt Ghislaine Maxwell may or may not be dumping (if they keep her alive).
But, is knowing the latest news and yakking about juicy tidbits on Twitter or Facebook, or commenting at your favorite websites and blogs going to help you survive what could happen in the coming months?
My continued writing about what the latest plans are from say Bloomberg’s New American Economy and his sidekicks at Welcoming America is, I think, a way of making you believe everything is normal and we are just having disputes between warring policy ideas for the future of America.
And, thus reading time is taking your precious time needed to prepare, to even consider moving if you live in a vulnerable location.
Maybe I’ve read too many dystopian novels, but there is no downside to being the most prepared you can be.
If the Marxists’ takeover attempt fizzles and we have a normal election and a calm aftermath as Trump is reelected then we can thank God. But, in the meantime, it will give you some peace of mind to be ready for the worst possible outcome.
I’m not saying to stop reading altogether (you need to get the best prep ideas), but I am suggesting you sit down with your family and make plans for your immediate family and with the help of like minded patriots for your local community.
That said, I will shut up. Definitely read Leo’s post and get to work where you live.
