Wonder what Linda B has to say about all this now? Oh wait, she is saying nothing since she is dead. No more boney finger typing for her. I am sure her lawn chair beside the dumpster is being warm though.

So, how are YOU getting ready? For the sake of my younger friends, I hope you're wrong.
I think you are old enough to remember when we were on the brink of nuclear war. Many folks thought that war was a certainty, and that it would happen very soon. My uncle built a fallout shelter in his basement. Kids were taught in school to "duck and cover" when the H-bombs were dropped.
And yet, here we are, 50 years later. That war never happened. Maybe things now aren't as bad as you fear.
Look at history it tells the future. The dollar will crash an soon. Obama is working hard to start WW3. The pot is about to boil over. Every thing Obama is doing is destroying this country. Obama beat out Bush for being the worse president in history. Your air water and food are being poisoned. Cancer and other diseases are increasing everyday. The weather is destroying crops as is the government. A food shortage is coming soon or prices will be sky high, most likely both. Just to much to put in here why this country is about to fall. Yes I hope I am wrong also. I know you do not hear near what I hear that is going on.

Yes I remember the 50s and payed no attention to the rumors of an atomic war. Today things are a lot different.

Sorry you dont know the constitution or our history. Sorry you do not keep up with what is going on. You are one who is helping to destroy this country by being ignorant of what is happening.

Will someone please enlighten this poor confused sole as to where I am located? He seems to think I am in America. You are correct, I may not know a lot about your Constitution, but I do now it would be spelled with a capital C. The mate who posted that article about smoking causing brain damage was correct. You are a prime example. Carry on. Funny how you seem to tell everybody how stupid they are, and you can not even get the simple stuff right. Silly Americans.

That seems all you people really have is to gripe about grammar. No Smoking does not cause brain damage or many of the other things the drug companies say it does. They are killing you with the poisons they put in vaccinations and there drugs. They are part of the system to kill off 80% of the world population and start a one world government with you ( if you live ) as a slave. They have said so but people like you do not believe even when you hear it out of their mouth. All of what is going on in the world is being done by the elite orders. The elite own the food, drugs, banks, media, oil and most of the governments. The elite have built safe places to survive with our money. The enemy of free people is the elite. Obama is a puppet of the elite as are most leaders around the world. Funny when I grew up in the 50s very few of the diseases of today were around and almost all smoked. Only knew one person with cancer and it was a bone cancer.Diabetes never heard of it until the late 60s when pollution got so bad. No one i knew ever had allergies. Now almost everyone has some major disease. As a smoker for over 55 years I am still healthy. In fact most of the smokers I know are healthy, wish I could say the same for the non smokers.

Grow your own garden for one thing, be well armed and stock food an water. I live in Arizona and most in my area are preparing for our country to collapse. The dollar will die an soon that is a fact. Printing money out of thin air and you can only go into debt so far before it all comes crashing down. We have nothing that backs our dollar. I think we are just about the only big country that is NOT buying gold and sliver. China owns most all types of metal now. China has most of the worlds manufacturing an more going to them all the time. An economic collapse is for certain and could happen any day. When I was in Korea years back it was 650 Won to the dollar. that means what cost us a dollar would cost them 650 of their dollars. You can expect prices here to go sky high soon when our dollar crashes.
NASA says we can be hit with a solar flare like what happen in the 1800s. That would knock out all electrical. Also any country can knock out our electrical with an EMP attack. WW3 is just around the corner. Our food supply every where is being destroyed. Much to watch for an prepare for. I just built my own EMP container.

Will you please list your credentials that make you an expert on the subject? I am sorry, but I will trust a medical professional over a drug addicted junky ANY DAY.

You are the kind of idiot that would take his car to a Sushi Chef for an oil change if you think you would save a few bucks.

BTW.... I called you out on you saying you are not required by law to have a drivers license, that they were nu-Constitutional, yet YOU STILL HAVE ONE. Whenever you get backed against the wall, you pretend like you never said something when you get proven wrong. Remember 'I was injured in Nam'??? Remember 'Vic 20 was the first computer'???? All you do is talk what comes out of your dog's amd Nancy's a@@ and have NEVER ONCE backed up what you said. You just spew feces, and pretend like you never said it. GO ahead, ignore it again, and show the world what an idiot you are. Sorry mommy was too bust entertaining when you were young and never gave you any attention. Pretty sad, old ass man seeking attention on the internet because he did not get it as a kid. Speaking of which... He never got it as an adult either!

If society is truly going to break down, maybe it would be a good idea for you and your neighbors to move out of the desert. The Southwest depends on receiving water from other parts of the country. If they decide to turn off the tap, your garden will die.

Without electricity to run your air conditioning, most of Arizona will be very unpleasant in the summer months.(The high for Phoenix tomorrow is forecast to be 118 degrees.)

they are stockpiling ammo instead of wasting their time talking anymore.

ever heard of losing a battle, but winning the war?

your loss is very near. 70% of the American population is done with this political BS.

you don't want to smoke.....great.

someone does.....great.

if a business posts smoking is permitted, then you have a decision to make.

there is no argument.

smoking bans are against my civil right.

When do you think we'll see some evidence of that? When the Ohio Supreme Court decided that the smoking ban was legal, that was the final nail in the coffin.

80% of Ohio residents don't smoke. How will you ever get a coalition of more than 50% to overturn the bans?

Even Kentucky is going for smoking bans in the metro areas now, and they are the smokiest state in the nation.

Your first line that you trust your medical professional says you haven't a clue of what is going on. We have a very good doctor here that has changed the way he thinks because of all the tests he has run to show what they are telling him is wrong. My expertise comes from many years of experience and keeping my mind, ears and eyes open. Using common sense which most people no longer have. Why I am healthy and most people aren't. I have see very little disease when most people smoked and a lot of disease when most do not smoke. I see our food, water and air being poisoned by our government. 80% of package foods in the stores has poison in them. Vacnations that they have found live cancer virus in them an they have mercury in them among other things.

No you do not need a driver license to drive. I also explained what you had to do. Yes I still have one because I am to old and tired to fight the police. But i know many who do not an get by with it. Real freedom is not having the government making all your decisions. Real freedom as the founders intended was have government totally out of our life. They expected real Americans to stand on their own 2 feet and be responsible for their own actions.

Actually there is plenty of water here. The Colorado river is just a few miles away. They are plenty of springs around. No we do not depend on getting our water from some place else. The water here comes from wells.
Did you know from burning wood you can get oil, gas and an propane.
I will get by just fine without electricity an I will stay cool an warm. I grew up without the modern day crap. I lived in houses without running water or electricity. I hunted and fished for my food when young and did not need a license to do so.

Today it is 113 and 22 miles away 123. Normal for this time of year. News makes it sound like it is the end of the world. Takes your mind off the important things
