    The Colony

    I really liked the first season. I didn't see all of it and didn't get to see the second season. I think I'll have to track them down again.

    Unless God states it in His good Word, I don't believe it.

    Iran & OIl

    With the ties Iran has to Russia and China, and the ties China has with Pakistan, etc., yes it's the ripple effect I am worried about. It's an easy way to piss off a lot of nuclear powers. Hence my fear of a WWIII possibility.

    2012 better than 2011?

    I personally think the economic collapse will get worse and we will probably go to war with Iran and potentially kick off WWIII. I almost guarantee more of our freedom will be taken from us and we'll see an increase in TSA, etc.. *shrugs* I prepare what I can and I'm of the same mindset, " The future belongs to those who prepare for it today." -Malcolm X. I'll help my loved ones and try to help others, but when it comes down to it, family comes first.

    I've got two ideas for my BOV. The first is to haul the family. It has to be a full-sized van like a Ford E-series, or perhaps a cube truck (but most likely a van, as a cube truck might be a target for looting). I would also have bikes on the roof or inside in case there was a traffic jam. Secondary BOV's are Jeep Wranglers.

    Nice! This was a great competition! Congrats to all the winners and thanks to everyone else for posting their bags. I've already started shaving weight on mine so that it's more suitable to different persons.

    2012 better than 2011?

    This is why when people tell me I'm a pessimist I tell them I'm and 'optimist realist'. I hope for the best, but see what's going on. The world's economic markets are crumbling and the current way things are done won't allow them to correct themselves. *shrugs* Let's just hope we don't go and get in another war. That's be just the right thing to top off this mess that's going on.

    The best quote yet, a reference to dying from a guy with 'Zombie' in his handle.

    I'm willing to risk it. It's such a good phrase.

    I'm the big 30, at least that's what my birth certificate makes me out to be.

  12. Oh, I'm like a ghost. I come and I go.
  13. The only way to 'fix' this economy is to use Austrian Economics as the school of thought. There are few politicians I know of who will try to implement this, and as such, we're screwed.

    Ron Paul

    Both Romney and Gingrich are flip-floppers. Gingrich is evil in my honest opinion. He plays the political game and moves to advance his personal position, not the position of us, the people. Romney is not much different than Obama. Ron Paul is dead on with many issues, and even if you disagree at least he is consistent and stubborn enough to vote the Consitution. If anything he will be a nice 'Check and Balance', which is what we reaaaally need in office right now. Because of both parties, our Liberty is down the tubes and on top of it they follow Keynesian Economics instead of Austrian Economics and keep ruining our economy by printing more money and attempting to spark the economic motor back into running. I could really get into a long debate on why Ron Paul is right on so many issues, but honestly, trying to convince anybody via the internet is almost always a waste of time. Convincing people to change core beliefs takes a big investment of time and mental energy on the parts of both parties and a willingness to listen. I used to be very 'Conservative' which means Neo-Conservative, but after much discussion and research, I've moved to a Paleo-Conservative stance.

    I'm guessing we can't vote for ourselves?
