More than an 80's R.E.M. song, I lately feel like I'm watching Rome burn and I don't have a violin handy. I am watching the people (or some would say sheeple) in America degenerate into Neanderthals with Gucci handbags. People are more concerned with Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton than with the 12 % inflation rate. We are in the beginning of a major housing market correction (probably a collapse) and 99% of Americans would rather wear their asses for hats than figure out what really is going on.
I have been reading many of the survival blogs out there, and I have begun some modest preparations as my finances allow. I intend this blog to be a catch-basin for my rather unique view of the world. I'll follow up with posts on where I stand on a variety of issues, hopefully I'll help out with some tips, some facts, and something to (metaphorically) poke you in the grey matter to make you think.
