    Well I been thinking of stocking up on some Rambo gear. I tell ya that everything in world events looks like it's going south real soon. Each day it seems that the UN, the US government, the Fed are caught red handed in a scandal, break our laws and hammer in their own dictatorial agendas and answer to no one.

    If you are not up to date on real world affairs try http://www.infowars.com

    You wont find real news on ABC,CBS,NBC,or the BBC unless you think Tiger woods is news.

    Ahhh..... you've been listening to good ol' Alex Jones.

    There's a great deal going on that the average Joe has little or no control over. Even I once thought about doing the survival thing -- plant a big garden, stock up on at least a year's suppy of food, buy a water purification system, guns and insane amounts of ammo -- then I remembered that if we had an emergency serious enough to justify all that, my neighbors would undoubedly raid the garden, steal all my stuff, and maybe even shoot my arse to get it if I was inclined to shoot them to keep them from getting it. :gun: Sounds like a wicked scenario to me.

    I guess I'lll just play UO till it happens.

    Where is that dang fiddler? I know he is around here somwhere!

    You are right. Rumors like the end is near been going on since...hrm....OOhh yeah..Rome crashed.

    As for Alex Jones. I do like him, buy MY GOD that guy can NOT do an interview to save his life. Alot of what he says I find very funny..There are a few and I mean a few things tho that I agree on that he says....

    People are fighting way to much among themselves about everything,,,,and NOT worrying about the greater threat thats all ready here. WW3 not one gun will be fired....But the one with the most money will rule all.

    If you have the money and the jobs, people will flock to you to feed there familys and so forth...

    Well, the logo about being 'dangerous' is true when dictators rule. And the ones with the most money seem to have usually gotten it by screwing everyone else out of 'their' money. I swear we'd be better off if we chose congressmen and senators at random from the taxpaying public. And the president? Forget about it. Maybe take anyone who is not a lawyer for starters. Clint Eastwood I'd vote for in a second.

    Otherwise, I agree it isn't very much like it used to be in the old days. At least we had some good purpose then. Now we don't seem to have any at all.
    I wish you all well in the caves. Better pick out a nice one before someone else gets it.:sad3:
