The Fiscal Cliff is looming.

My world saving trickle-down attitude changing techniques aren't working quickly enough.

As it stands today, I am going to have to depend on each and every person to save themselves. Brace yourself for economic collapse.

Make some New Year's Resolutions and a plan of how to keep the promises you make and how to reach the goals you set for yourself.

Don't complain about your life - change it up and make it awesome! Take Charge!

It's January - can we give voting a rest for a few months? Let those people we elected do some voting. They are going to have to vote themselves into some sort of agreement about taxes and budgets, aren't they?

Rep/Dem has become a giant dividing factor in our country - look past your political party and consider how our politician's decisions are affecting our country.

Will a great defense budget cut suddenly make the USA vulnerable to attack?

Will increased health insurance benefits lead to companies to lay off workers?

Will increased taxing of the wealthy lead to more unemployment while unemployment benefits are decreased?

Something's bound to happen. Prepare yourself. Save your money. Collect some canned food. Decide now what you can do without if you suddenly can't afford all that you want. Quit complaining and accept that The Times, They Are A-Changing.

i'm smack dab in the middle of earthquake country and we're due for a big one. if i was smart, i'd grow all my own food and dehydrate it using a food dehydrator. this would double serve as camping food too.

I have always heard that it is only a matter of time before California falls into the ocean.

Tell us about your earthquake experiences.

My garden went horribly this past summer, almost a complete bust. I swear, I'm going to get it right this year. My family cans a lot of green beans and tomatoes - also salsa and we freeze peppers and corn. Buuuuut, hardly at all in 2012, I couldn't pay my garden enough attention and it went all to crap. So, I'm going to get some canned vegetables when I see them 3/$1 because I don't want to get stuck in my house and starve this winter.

I like your dehydration idea - I think I will try that this year.

Sorry about your garden. I'm not much of a gardener, but my sister is. She's a master gardener, she grows all year and I benefit from this greatly. I don't have a food dehydrator yet, but it interests me. I'm too busy with fresh and raw right now. In my yard: meyer lemon tree, persimmon tree, peach tree, blueberry bushes and I'll do some barrels of tomatoes, basil, arugela and a few random peppers. I do what I know...

earthquakes..in no particular order..new people freak out about them, but to me, they're no big deal. the big SF quake in 89 was probably the biggest i've felt, with a few in LA being a close second. there are actually small earthquakes every day up in Sonoma Co. near the Geysers (wine country, an hour away). the buildings are built so well now and are able to sustain much shaking. liquefaction! the high-rise buildings actually sway with the movement! there are many fault lines that run around here and the one I'm most worried about is over in the East Bay (Oakland, Berkeley). but honestly, i'd take a "wham-bam-get it over with and deal earthquake" over the anticipatory anxiety a hurricane brings any day. i'd pull my hair out over that kind of WAITING. both natural disasters wreak havoc, but i'd rather have it happen, then just deal and move on. here in Marin Co., there is a lot of solid bedrock holding landmasses together. i'm no scientist (just a social scientist!), but my dad is and his words used to appease me when i was a young kid scared about these things. now i'm at ease with nature, but all so aware of the power of mother nature. don't mess with her, she'll get ya!(as Steph wonders why all those houses on vertical slopes got built in Sausalito?!)

Well - if it does, don't act like I didn't try to warn you.

I have seen some horrible flood damage - but I have also seen areas cleaned up and rebuilt.
