Get ready...

I am trying to not be paranoid but I am... I think the world and America has some very difficult times ahead. I give us about 3 to 4 years until the meltdown.

America owns too much money. Our GDP to debt ratio is staggering.

Free healthcare? We ain’t got no money! War in Iraq or a war in some other crazy middle eastern country? We ain’t got no money! Cap and Trade? We ain’t go no money! New aircraft carrier? We ain’t got no money!

Republican or Democrat. Conservative or Liberal. It’s all the same... we are out money. The credit cards are all maxed out and they are due. In the near future America is going to have a hard time just making the minimum payment.

The entire world is tied together. If we default or some other big nation defaults the entire house of cards is going to come falling down.

Hyperinflation will hit first followed by a deflationary collapse. This will lead to a sudden stop of services from the government and industry. This stop of services with cause rioting and rampant crime in most big cities.

I really hope I am wrong!! I hope years from now we can all get a good laugh about how paranoid Kyle was back in the ‘bama years.

Food...

My family has been working on getting our food supply in order. We have about 3 months supply of basic food. We need to get more. This summer getting more food storage is our second highest priority next to getting out of debt.

A Plan...

If things get bad we will make an assessment about our family’s safety in the forsaken land of Buckeye. If we feel safe in our house an neighborhood then we will try to stay at home. If things get really bad we’re heading to Pima. My parents in-law live on a large farm in the Gila Valley.

A Viable Means of Self Defense...

The Christiansen household has guns, yes they are loaded and yes we know how and when to use them.

We Know Who Our Friends Are...

I am so thankful we are members of the Church. We are not alone. We can get help if we need to and we will provide help to whomever needs it. We know our neighbors and they know us.

Sorry to be paranoid!!

Well said.... This world is going to hell in a hand basket. I just love to go look at my food storage and know we will be ok.
