You are absolutely correct on all counts. I have started making purchases the good old fashioned way again. USING CASH. This also means using NONE of those stupid rewards cards, either. Not the Kroger reward card, not the Speedy rewards card, NONE of them. Those "discount" cards along with either your debit or credit card, keeps track of everything you purchase. EVERYTHING.
I don't purchase my ammo unless it's with cash either. And now just today, I read a story about 'them' wanting everyone to show an ID when purchasing ammunition? Just wow..
They're taking our privacy and we're stupidly allowing it go on without realizing what the long term implications really are.
I don't have a web cam, I threw the answering machine in the trash, I have not used credit cards in 15 years or more and I have no cell phone. I buy nothing on-line or watch on-line or pay-to-view movies. I do have caller Id on my corded land line phone and if I get a call from a number I don't recognize such as other than family or friends, I simply do not answer any more and I never call back.

My reasoning for my trashing the answering machine and watching the caller ID was because I was getting calls wanting to speak with my wife. If I answered, I would tell them that I would like to speak to her too since she has been dead now for almost 7 years. Sometimes the caller id states "Unknown" and I figure if they don't want me to know who they are, they don't need to know who I am.

I agree! I sat down one day and cut up all the credit cards and later the debit card. I still deposit my checks in the bank but I take out quite a bit in cash. A while ago I bought a house. I had the cash for the down payment and all of that but I had to show exactly where the cash came from. It was a good thing that I had taken out the cash and had it on record. I had to prove where the money came from or I couldn't buy the dang house! I don't know about y'all but I have been fed up with the government for a long time!
Banks are required by law to report any "cash" transactions exceeding $10,000. I guess that came out of the war on drugs. The last time I tried to buy a vehicle, I told the sales people I would give them $9000 cash now, they hold the truck for 60 days and then I would give them the rest in cash and pick up the vehicle then. They would not agree. They wanted to "finance" the thing and get a kick back on the financing. So I told them to keep it and I am still driving an old clunker and have decided that I will just keep buying and driving clunkers from individuals rather than automobile dealers.

High Concentration

When there is a major or on going leak,a high concentration of natural gas can begin to build up.
This is particularly dangerous in enclosed areas and inside the home,as breathing this high concentration can have some adverse,but temporary , medical effects.An individal can begin to feel dizzy.
Getting out of the area and into the fresh air is the most important way to treat any effects that have developed from breathing natural gas. Typically the headaches and dizziness will begin slowly,giving enough time to get out into the open air.

A restraining order or order of protection is a form of legal injunction that requires a party to do, or to refrain from doing, certain acts.

Good morning. Still raining cats and dogs here, got some thunder rolling around up there too. Looks like the rest of the week will be cool but clear. 12/21/12 is approaching and I do not have a plan of action yet for that evening, maybe drink some wine and watch a movie. Don't sneak across my lawn dressed as an alien though just in case.

I have traveled through parts of the state before that had a lot of natural gas. The smell made me feel sick almost to the point of vomiting. Something about chemical smells makes me sick to my stomach, not only natural gas either.

I haven't heard about that but it does sound a little freaky. I'm sure if I heard it I would be concerned too. I hope nothing drastic happens during the winter in cold places like KY, but I'm sure it will someday.

Good morning AW.:) Yeah it has gotten a little ridiulous, no - totally ridiculous! The portion I wanted to pay in cash wasn't even $10,000 and they still wanted proof of where it came from. The loan officer told me, "We have to have a money trail." Every day we get closer and closer to that "cashless society" mentioned in Revelation. Everything from our money to our medical records is going to come down to a card or microchip - "the mark of the beast." Those of us who don't go along with it are going to have problems! And not long ago we couldn't even imagine HOW all of this could even be possible. I do a lot of cash transactions around here and I plan on doing more! As far as those newer cars/trucks, that "On Star" stuff freaks me out beyond belief!!! There have been many vehicles that were stolen then recovered by the gps tracking or by remotely stopping the car - all done by On Star. Shoot, they can just sit and listen to your conversations as you are driving down the road! No thank you! If I did buy a new car I would probably destroy it trying to get all that technology crap out of it! I heard Glen Beck talking about all of this a few days ago on his radio show. He was also talking about those "smart box" or whatever contraptions they are installing on houses through the electric company. NOT HAPPENING HERE! He said that one person refused the smart box and had to pay an extra $15 a month. Fine by me and I'd probably be paying that in cash too! I tell you what, the thought to no electricity and no technology sounds mighty peaceful to me. That sounds better every single day!

Y'all should check out this book "Shadow Government" by Grant Jeffrey: http://www.christianbook.com/apps/product... |M
Your local library might have it. Get out your library "card" (that they are so easily tracking and recording ALL of your library transactions with) and go check it out! LOL You know, there was a time that no doubt we would probably have to have been nuts to even consider all these things. Now you're nuts if you don't!

It won't take you long to read that book because you won't be able to put it down!

You've got the right idea, AW. I disconnected my landline phone because of too many calls trying to sell me something. I only use the cell phone, so that all my calls are from family, friends, or business associates to whom I have given my phone number. I would love to get rid of the landline entirely, but I have to keep it in order to use my computer. I hate credit cards, but I have to have one so that I can order merchandice I need online. Unfortunately, I don't get out to shop very often. However, we are credit card "freeloaders" because we pay the bill entirely when it comes in at the end of the month. That way I don't pay any of the exorbitant interest rates that credit card companies charge.

Good morning, everyone. It's raining hard in my neck of the woods. I had to bribe Stein to go out to his tree this morning. But, rain is better than snow. When I lived in New England, I dreaded winter. Now that I'm acclimated to Kentucky temperatures, I could never go back. I'm on my third and last cup of coffee for the morning. I'm getting as bad as Hempburn with the coffee addiction. But, I've been reading that up to 4 cups of coffee is actually good for your health, and may be protective against cancer.

I think Juan Valdez is pulling your leg on the Coffee, so he can make enough money to send his pack mule to college.

I don't use a cell phone because it does not get a signal down here in the boondocks where this old hermit chooses to live. I can't get cable tv or even use an antenna here either, so I have to use a Dish or not watch tv at all. I don't shop online or buy any extras. I buy groceries and chicken feed once a month and pay cash. I can control the land line by watching the Caller ID and just refusing to answer unless I already know the caller.

Surprisingly after refusing to answer for the last few years, I don't get that many calls anyways. You can't book a hotel or fly commercially without a credit card, but I don't do either. I only travel to where my old truck will take me on gas bought with cash.

Good morning Roaming from your Scottsville neighbor. It is lovely at this old shack this morning. Raining but the birds are hungry. I saw a sparrow, a Bluejay and a female Cardinal. The female Cardinal was feeding on my birdseed. I know this was a female Cardinal, because she was wearing high heels and earrings. I bought me a bird book just like the greatest bird watcher on here has. It is so cool, how to see 4,000 species of birds in just one day. I'm going to have to break down and make some soot suet cakes though.
