At some point we will default. Might be soon lolo. Get your stuff ready to go. It will be like 1929 all over again, only much worse. They are printing like crazy now. Third world countries do that and it always ends up badly. Collect the following and store it at your inland properties.

go bags full of food, blankets, fire-starters, batteries, radio/solar, crow bars, knives, guns, ammo, plastics. Also medicines, compass, signal mirrors, ropes, clothes, communication equipment, shoes- several pairs, pots, hats, sunscreens, clocks, pans, bathroom supplies, plastic bags, tarps, stakes, money, coins, can openers, pins, locks, tools, antiseptic, candles, utensils, antibiotics, canned goods, openers, BBQ, water containers, water, filters, and anything else you will need. Also include some survival books for jungle/desert. It is easy to do once you have a list made and head out to the stores to get it.$500 goes a long way to get started. Well worth it.

Might as well start on this now, you may need it at anytime. I am starting on my third round of this tomorrow. Earthquakes, EMP, weather, you name it- anything can happen. Get them ready. Something big is about to happen.

Go Bag Checklist for an Emergency
by George Wehby | September 5, 2011

I do not know if it is the fact we have 24-hour media coverage or the beginnings of the apocalypse, but it seems we are hearing more and more about natural disasters, flash mobs and terrorist attacks. The fact that these things occur should give us pause and make us all think twice before we assume it will not happen to us. Well, prior proper planning prevents poor performance.

One way to be properly prepared is having a go bag checklist.

A go bag or bug out bag is a pre-packed satchel or bag that contains an assortment of supplies that you may need in the case of an emergency where you have to leave your home or residence. The go bag needs to be large enough to carry a good amount supplies, but small enough that you can transport without much effort.

Here’s a quick Go Bag checklist:

Flashlights with extra batteries
Water proof matches
Pocket knife
First aid kit
Copies of identification cards
List of emergency contact numbers
Roll of quarters for phone calls
An assortment of cash (small denominations)
MRE (Meal Ready to Eat)
Street map of your area
Couple bottles/cases of water (change them out regularly)
Any and all prescription medications
100-mph tape
All-purpose blanket and 550 chord (paracord)
Soaps
Vitamins, aspirin

I have had my place up on the hill for a couple years now.
But still need to have heavier locks installed.
And a can opener.
The first tsunami warning it was between renters but I realized it was just floors. Now have furnishings, extra clothes and books, even a slot machine a guy was selling in his yard. A couple of those Costco buckets of food and an old Nutrisystem box to mix with dog food for the pups.
May put a scanner up there, those come in handy during power outages.
Plus plenty peacocks wantering around, hear that roast peacock is better than turkey.
Always thought I would have a place at the resort but that year homeless moved in there plus food was gone by noon.

I know what the law entails Tootsie. Triple D, who INITIALLY posted the comment about the tax apparently doesn't or won't comment on the SPECIFICS since it flies in the face of Triple D's lame propaganda.

Since you hang onto to every word commented here, proven by a connoisseur in the EST, I'm sure you'll be the first to point out what I'm talking about if Triple D decides to not be such a chicken-shit.

As I remember it I have been mentioning the roachboy's new real estate tax for a long time. Goes right along with its hatred of anybody who has made anything of themselves on their own and lived their life without government handouts.(which of course your boy says cannot happen.)

I am waiting for real estate people to rise up and fight this as property owners hold on to property to avoid the usurper's normal crap.

Why should those who have lived as goood, productive people have to finance its free healthcare for a bunch of illegals who do nothing but demand free lives and rant and rave about their hatred of America.
I never could understand, if this is such a hateful place, why they insist on being here. But of course many will not be happy until America is another third world country.

That's how liberals think. Anyone that does better than anyone else deserves to have their property divided up among the hive-people. You can buy a Cadillac, but they want you to buy a Toyota and buy one for them while you're at it because they can't buy one for themselves..

the way to handle obama...
http://www.weeklystandard.com/articles/four-y...

The way you handle this guy is to just tell him NO.

He does that all the time. NO on his records, NO on his bc, NO on anything he doesn't like. If he doesn't want to do something he just ignores it.

That is the way to deal with narcissists like him. Just say NO and then ignore him.

OBAMA SUPPORTERS SHOCKED, ANGRY OVER NEW TAX INCREASES

THE MORONS ARE SHOCKED!!! JUST AS PREDICTED AND RIGHT ON SCHEDULE!!!- LMAO!!!
Part 1/2-

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.

With President Obama back in office and his life-saving “fiscal cliff” bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.

“What happened that my Social Security withholding’s in my paycheck just went up?” a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com .“My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don’t feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna’ hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?”

Shocker. Democrats who supported the president’s re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy “1 percenters,” you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

So this week, as taxes went up for millions of Americans — which Republicans predicted throughout the campaign would happen — it was fun to watch the agoggery of the left.

“I know to expect between $93 and $94 less in my paycheck on the 15th,” wrote the ironically named “RomneyLies.”

“My boyfriend has had a lot of expenses and is feeling squeezed right now, and having his paycheck shrink really didn’t help,” wrote “DemocratToTheEnd.”

“BlueIndyBlue” added:“Many of my friends didn’t realize it, either. Our payroll department didn’t do a good job of explaining the coming changes.”

So let’s explain something to our ill-informed Democratic friends. In 2009, Mr. Obama enacted a “holiday” on the payroll tax deduction from employees’ paychecks, dropping the rate from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. But like the holidays, the drop ended, and like New Year‘s, the revelers woke up the next morning with a massive hangover and a pounding head.

“Bake,” who may have been trolling the site, jumped into the thread posted Friday.“My paycheck just went down. So did my wife’s. This hurts us. But everybody says it’s a good thing, so I guess we just suck it up and get used to it. I call it a tax increase on the middle class. I wonder what they call it. Somebody on this thread called it a ‘premium.’ Nope. It’s a tax, and it just went up.”

Some in the thread argued that the new tax — or the end of the “holiday,” which makes it a new tax — wouldn’t really amount to much. One calculated it would cost about $86 a month for most people.“Honeycombe8,” though, said that amount is nothing to sneeze at.

“$86 a month is a lot. That would pay for … Groceries for a week, as someone said. More than what I pay for parking every month, after my employer’s contribution to that. A new computer after a year. A new quality pair of shoes … every month. Months of my copay for my hormones. A new thick coat (on sale or at discount place). It would pay for what I spend on my dogs every month … food, vitamins, treats.”

The Twittersphere was even funnier.

“Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my...

part 2/2-

"...student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.”“Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious.“F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

“_Alex™” sounded bummed.“Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away alot of money from my checks.” Christian Dixon seemed crestfallen.“I’m starting to regret voting for Obama.” But “Dave” got his dander up over the tax hike:“Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him”?

Of course, dozens of posters on DemocraticUnderground sought to blame it all (as usual) on President George W. Bush.“Your taxes went up because the leaders need to dig us out of this criminal deficit hole we are in which has been caused because taxes were too low during the Bush years. Everyone has to help by spreading the wealth around a little. Power to the correct people!” posted “Orinoco.”

But in fact, it was Mr. Obama who enacted the “holiday,” and, to be clear, the tax cut that he pushed throughout the campaign — remember? 98 percent of Americans will get a cut under his plan?— was really the extension of the Bush tax suts. Thus, it was Mr. Obama who raised taxes on millions of Americans, not Mr. Bush.

How many Americans? The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center in Washington put the total at 77.1 percent of all wage earners. In fact,“More than 80 percent of households with incomes between $50,000 and $200,000 would pay higher taxes. Among the households facing higher taxes, the average increase would be $1,635, the policy center said,” according to a Bloomberg News article. Hilariously, the tax burden will rise more for someone making $30,000 a year (1.7 percent) than it does for someone earning $500,000 annually (1.3 percent).

A whole new wave of Obama supporters still don’t even know: They’ll get their first 2013 paychecks on the 15th of the month. So when you’re shooting the breeze in the lunchroom with your grumbling co-workers on the 16th, just ask them,“Who’d you vote for in November?” When they say Mr. Obama, just tell them:“Well, you got what you voted for. You did know he was going to raise taxes, right?”

The looks on their faces will be priceless.
