More on Fukushima…

Arnie Gundersen is perhaps the ‘lone voice’ in the wilderness that is Main Stream Media!  The chart in the link I am providing here shows the release of radioactive elements from various nuclear events.  Fukushima is the worst on record and yet the least reported, at least in my opinion.  This is a world changing event.

Being Prepared for Disasters!

In the past I have had people write to me and tell me that I am a ‘fear monger’, using fear to sell products. I would think that Hurricane Sandy would put those statements to rest! Just think where those people are that had some supplies stored up, propane camp stove and a gravity fed [...]

Gas prices set record in California, why?

As oil prices decline the price of gas in California continues to set new highs, record highs! You would be wise to ask why.

Hurricane Issac

Isaac hit hurricane strength today and is unfortunately headed for Louisiana, or so it seems. I think that if I lived in New Orleans I would be headed for higher ground. After Katrina everyone should know that flooding is a high possibility.

The stock markets have fallen in 3 of the last 4 days and most of the MSM is placing the blame [...]

Food Shortages Coming?

After the stormy weather several weeks ago we should all be aware that food shortages can happen even when there is food in a state near you. Without electricity grocery stores can’t offer many types of food for very long and then, well no more food until the juice comes back.

Economic Disaster coninues to unfold in Europe

As the financial disaster in Europe continues, the German Chancellor Merkel tells Spain to think again on a bond issue backed by the European Community.
