Not exactly on topic, but for those looking for help and a free community to talk about gardens (men & women). Theres a google map feature if you want to list your locale and find other like-minded people near you. Its nifty and Im in contact with a few people in my area already...

http://freedomgardens.org/

Their homepage says,,,

Freedom Gardens is an online social community of gardening enthusiasts who are fed up with foreign oil, frequent food miles and high food prices.

Gardeners of all types of gardens are welcomed. from the acreage farmer to the apartment windowsill herb cultivator. And from the classroom gardens, to community gardens.

Not a gardener? Not a problem! Join anyway. This site is also for people interested in sustainable, local, and organic food or those just dreaming and scheming for a garden of their own.

Well I work in the offshore oil industry so its going to be a while before I get laid off especially since they need to power their war machine. The way I look at it when I get laid off its time to head for the hills. I have been stocking up on food and guns for a while now and hopefully I'll be prepared. I intend to go to the woods and plant my food if I have to. I am not really worried about loosing my job but its best to be prepared for anything isn't it?

You're being sarcastic, right?

Actually, no - not at all. I guess if you don't really have the faith... well, I think that's the largest part of it.
But I digress, I don't want it to spin into a religious debate. I respect the opinion of those who think that's 'kooky'. :)

But at one point, I answered a small, obscure ad in the paper, and it turned into a job with a fortune 100, with a pension. They ended up buying a new business and are kinda in a corner needing to keep our department intact in spite of the economy now.
And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

I got laid off 2 months ago with no savings and a bunch of debt.
I'm worried to death. I've got about 500 rounds but my gun is in the pawn shop.Hopefully I can get it out before jan 20th. I'm trying to sell a car and head to the Rockies from IN.

I don't want to turn this into a religious debate either, but I can't resist mentioning that, for every person who lands a desirable job after praying, there are countless others who don't. So I wouldn't go mistaking luck for divine intervention, nor would I make the critical mistake of thinking that prayer can ever be a substitute for decisive action:

I used to have 3 chickens in the back of my family biz in Los Angeles. Had them a good couple years and they were very nice to lay eggs all the time. One sweet girl would lay two eggs a couple times a week. Anyhow, right before Thanksgiving they all went missing.

Actually, that raises an interesting philosophical question.

Which is better -- to be a well-fed slave, or a starving free person?

well what i mean by that is......

i will prepare while i can....but there's no way im gonna be able to put away 10 yrs worth of necessities (sp)......

and living in the area i live in.....i will not be able to be independant.....

im not saying im gonna just give up and die.....but i am mentally preparing myself for the worst....which is more likely than the best

but to answer your philosophical question.....I WOULD RATHER DIE A FREE PERSON THAN BE A WELL-FED SLAVE!!!!!!

I confess I'm a bit aghast at times that red-pill folks are expecting to carry out an existance in urban areas. Citizen, don't you have an aunt or cousin out in the sticks somewhere? Likely you'll be able to determine an early bug-out timetable, and wouldn't you prefer to live in an area where you won't have to *buy* the things you'll need for 10 years- instead you can grow/produce/engineer them!

Geo- very good question. I'd like to say I'd prefer to be a starving freeman, but I don't know how long I'd be able to take watching my family be starving freefolks with me... At some point, it would be hard. I don't think many of us know a real hunger pain. I feel confident I could stomach (pun intended) a fair share, but I got chitlins- and it would be hard to see them with rickets or scurvey.

... maybe cannibalism would be a happy medium ;-)

Stand out in front of the federal reserve  ::) (private) and hold a sign saying, "You did this and we know who you are criminals!" In reality when jobs diminish and the ones available provide no financial structure, you're a day away from being homeless. So, might as well harass them.

I'm in full support of that idea. I mean I woke up not too long ago and am in a more developed area but I'm putting a lot of my focus on a bug-out-bag and planning. Luckily there are some woods behind my house I can escape too and I'm not a stranger to being out in the woods. But every day you can do something to be prepared for anything. Be it reading a survival book, learning new skills, picking up at least a knife.

My shopping since waking up has been more fun now too. I mean if I'm going to be giving these nwo people my money at least I'm getting something that will help me escape them at the same time, that alone is some funny irony. You'll look at products differently too imagine how they would of use to you now as well as in the future.

Even living in the city you can make plans. Just make sure to get out sooner. No worldly position is worth giving compliance too so you may obtain it.

Have a small cottage on a quite lake.  Will sell the house and get what we can get and move to the cottage.  Have 6 months of stored food for the wife and myself (efoodsdirect).  Will hunt and fish (I am currently a vegetarian) and plant a garden with the hierloom seeds we have.

The rest of our family thinks we are going to take care of them.  Planning to have a talk with all of them when we are together for the holidays.  Kids will be welcomed, adults that didn't listen are on their own.

I'd have to answer with my favorite quote from Patrick Henry:

It is in vain, sir, to extentuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace--but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin' to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take... OUR FREEDOM!

Good idea.

Another good idea is a beehive. I started this last year and it is fun after the first few times dealing with thousands of bees buzzing at the same time. Each good hive can make up to 150 lbs of honey a year and you don't need a lot of room. The bees never bother you unless you mess with their colony without a smoker. The neighbors never know they are there. They pollinate up to a 5 mile radius.

Coolbeans, thanks for the site. Found one group in my area, looks like it's militia but I was interested in joining anyway. I don't see how people can be too domesticated and awake and still not do anything about it. I'm going back to my roots fast and doing every little thing to prepare now. I may have only been fully awake for a month or so now, but now I know where my priorities are now and the only time it's too late is after the fact.

This is an informative list of networking people, and often touching. Thanks for posting this. I don't sense that most of these people are prioritizing militia operations other than as part of being practically prepared in all ways conceivable and practical.
