because it desensitizes the population.... whats sad is when the time comes most ppl will be so dead set on not believing whats right in front of them that most will sit and do nothing out of pure pride and stubbornness.
they depend on 99 percent of us being none other than human and not wanting our own downfalls pointed out.
see the thing that gets me out about most (not all) but most conspiracy theorist is that they are so intent on getting their point across that they forget that you catch more flies with honey and they down right demand that you subscribe to their reality.
really just chat with a few and you will see what im talking about... its "this is the way it is and your stupid for not seeing it the way it is" and tho they set out on a mission to help people they cant squash their condescending nature long enough to be anything but counteractive to their own cause.
the corporations, government, and media just have to sit back and chill (and occasionally point and laugh) and things will take care of themselves naturally. in the mean time they can sell us all bug out bags for three times the cost of simply buying a back pack, some hot hands, a pair of scissors, some rope, and a first aid kit.... and just sit back and watch the dollars roll in. they depend on mass panic to pay the bills for them and with each passing end date...like 12/12/12... that people will get tired of worrying about it all and go back to pretending that life is just gum drops and rainbows and good old uncle sam has their backs.
i believe that no one can be completely right all the time just the same as no one can be completely wrong all the time.... so its kind of ridiculous to me that any one would think that every conspiracy theorist out there is just a stark raving lunatic. but people will always hang on to what they view as the truth either way if it makes them right.obviously there is a good amount of truth to what they say.... how else do you explain 1 percent of human kind wiping their bums with dollar bills while every one else starves? obviously there is corruption there! but if you allow your self to get all bent out of shape about it then how can you expect to make well planned decisions for your self and your loved ones? how do you expect to enjoy what time we do have left before the shtf?
so of course they let the conspiracy theorist shows stay on the air.... its the easiest way to cause alternating bouts of both panic and numbness until one day your sitting on the couch flipping channels and you come across another doomsday documentary or prepper show and you roll your eyes and just keep on flipping. complete desensitization.
if everyone would stay calm and look at things rationally, they could prepare for the worst in cost effective ways and still find time to enjoy life.
You have expressed my thoughts exactly. You are one smart cookie.

Good morning, my feathered friends. It is cold and rainy outside, and I have more birds than I could possibly count. They are everywhere...In the trees, on the grass, on my house, on my car, on my deck, etc., etc., etc. They are also leaving their "presents" for me to try to clean up. I love birds,but my place is starting to look like the Alfred Hitchcock movie. There are starlings, blackbirds, cardinals, bluejays, a blue heron on the pond bank. They are everywhere. I don't need to leave out bird seed; they are finding plenty of their own.. In addition, they are eating the dog food left for the outside dogs. Those who are in need of birds, please come and get some. Yikes. The starlings are filling my trees, and when they decide to move en mass, they flutter their wings which makes the creepiest sound. Perhaps I am a rest stop on an annual migration. I hope so because I can't keep up with cleaning after them.

big resounding yupp on all that... you would think by now they would figure out we all aint going anywhere.... wish i had that much time to waste click clicking without even reading. guess some are scared by a gathering of so many who thank for themselves. also... on the subject of bite sized candy bars and such..... i think they shrunk the reese cup again...
Everything is shrinking in the grocery aisles, except me of course, who is forever expanding if I even think of eating goodies. The products come in slightly smaller sizes, and the price remains the same...which amounts to a price increase, actually. The manufacturers hope that we are too stupid to notice. Ice cream tubs are getting smaller and smaller. You can't even find a 1/2 gallon container of ice cream these days. The worst thing that happens is a rise in price along with a decrease in the amount of a product. This happened to a favorite of mine...Yoplait light yogurt. The size went from 6 1/2 ounces to 6 ounces with a few pennies higher in cost. How can they justify this!!! It is obscene.

Many of these shows, particularly the reality shows, or Jerry Springe shows (I watch none of these, by the way)are designed for "entertainment" to keep the masses contented and dumbed down, much like what was done by the Roman circus. And we all know what ultimately happened to Rome.

We buy the Yoplait brand here. I recently began to purchase the Greek Gods yogurt in the big tubs. They last for at least a week.They have a honey, strawberry/ honey & orange honey. The fruit and honey comes through. It's all natural;) I prefer the orange/ honey which tastes like clementines. Yoplait is an excellent brand. I like the blackberry as well as blueberry.

mmm hmm.... the reese cup packs at the dollar store used to be a dollar and had ten regulaf cups in it. then they went to eight... then they shrunk them..again and again...then they went from eight to six and now i think they are even amaller.

packs of bacon are ridiculous priced right now and i noticed most are no longer a pound but twelve or thirteen ounces.

polish sausage (and this is the one that really gets to my gut becuase i love a bowl of fried red and green cabbage and sausage with jiffy corn bread cakes on the side) sausage was never over 1.99 a pound pack now its almost three or even more without coupons and most are 12 to 14 ounce packs.

jiffy used to be a quarter a box... now its two qaurters a box.

i have noticed it with the ice cream too. addicted to blue bell banana pudding ice cream but on sale it can be as high as 5.99 a tub. atleast its still a half gallon, but not many others have stayed the same size.

its insulting how stupid they think we all are. some of these corporations should really go watch some of the news covorage from the great depression..... people freaked out!

i watched this earlier today with hubby.... this scenario happening today would be much much worse. back then there were around 130 million populating the u.s. now we are over 300 million.



i am more concerned with that happening again than any bomb, emp, air strike, zombie apocalypse, or natural disaster....

try hard not to laugh when they show the press statement from the local sheriff "they called me all kinds of names and i was forced to take action."

there is a abandoned gas station not far from my house that still reads 2.09 per gallon.... i remember stopping to get gas there once before they closed and i was so mad that it was taking a whole twenty to fill up the little corsica i was running around in back then.... now i see it and im like, "man...those were the days!"

a 3 pound can of coffee now just lists the ounces and is not even quite 2 pounds. Two things I have never had in my lifetime and see no reason to start now... Yogurt and Starbucks.

I remember when people went to the gas station and got 5 gallons of gas and paid $1.60 total, but that was when you could get a Coca Cola for 5 cents and a good week's pay was about $50.... It is all relative.

i agree and have felt the same way a time or too. except i don't "don't" raise a garden... i seem to "can't'.....

i will say though.... a few years ago when it really sunk in to my brain how bad a shape this world is in..... i could not help but panic at the thought of the dollar crashing or an emp attack that would set us back to the stone age in a matter of days.

thats when i set out on this path of self discovery and began learning how to make my own things like the laundry soap and fabric softener. i took up canning again, a skill i had passed on to me by my grandmother but i had not done since i was a young girl. im trying ...and failing (but thats ok) at gardening. remembering that i can sow very well on a machine and by hand, and crotchet, and needle point...that i know exactly how to chop and stack the perfect rick of wood and i know the best pieces to burn over night to ensure i don't end up waking up to a cold home and a pile of ashes.

all those skills are there just have been rendered dorment over the years of the increasing technology age....

thank god for my parents and grandparents who thought better of getting me the Atari and Nintendo every other kid had and instead opted to get me any animal i was willing to feed. they had the foresight just as their parents before them, that what i wanted and what i needed were completely different.

i have found that with every step i make toward re-learning the things i was taught as a child that the knowledge is still there, what i had forgotten is how to apply it. somewhere along the way, i realized, "hey, if a hell breaks loose...me and hubby make actually stand a chance!" and my guilt and all my panic and worry was replaced with a feeling of independence.

i think the worst feeling in the world is fearing the future so much that you cease to enjoy life.....

my only grandmother that still remains with us, aged 89, told me once that she and my grandfather purchased the home and land they still live in today for next to nothing. their first mortgage was 18.74 a month. of course like many back then, they had seven mouths to feed aside from their own and it was a real struggle to keep food on the table. now with all the land they have and the house which they have updated a dozen times thru the years, they are sitting on an almost million dollar property. crazy how time changes things....

Happy rainy Palm Sunday bird threaders. I had to get home and rest, cook dinner and slob out for the rest of the day. Big weekend of games and NASCAR. One room had games on and one room had NASCAR on. It was a great day/weekend. I am sorry my favorite team wasn't there but was proud to see WKU almost beat Kansas. Now I am cheering Florida and SEC teams and anyone playing Louisville. hahaha Not nice I know, but I do.:)

Sure love all the DIY recipes posted the last couple days. I love Febreze and will try that recipe as soon as I am finished with the big refill bottle I bought last month. It is the only one I like. Like some of you mentioned, I avoid those aisles at the store too. That hurt my sinuses up and the Ohio Valley does that enough. lol

I also agree with betty/lala about all that trickery at the grocery stores. Less product, more air, higher prices. Who they think they are fooling? lol

It is chilly and been raining all day, but will take it compared to what others are getting. Our "s" here is predicted after midnight and the news channel said Indiana/Illinois up to 10 inches. That God for that Ohio River not far from here. It does seem to hit Ky and the River and stays up north. Fine by me. lol Check out this mess in Kansas in the slideshow.

For lala,

New sinkhole in same Fla. town where man was killed

Just weeks after a sinkhole swallowed a Florida man, killing him in his sleep in his Seffner home, another sinkhole has opened between two houses in the same town.

The latest sinkhole appeared in the 1400 block of Lake Shore Ranch Drive around 7 p.m. Saturday. It's estimated to be about 8 feet in diameter and 10 feet deep, according to WFLA.

Both homes on either side of the hole were evacuated as a precaution.

Seffner is the town where 37-year-old Jeff Bush was swallowed by a sinkhole that completely demolished his bedroom three weeks ago. Five others who were in the house escaped unharmed.
That sinkhole was estimated to be 20 feet wide and 20 feet deep. The house was later demolished.

Don't move to Florida. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there for many reasons. lol

FOR THE BIRDS:

Update on Eagles:

03-23-13 ~ Decorah Eagle Parents - Video By Jim W.

This is a digiscoped video of the Decorah Eagle parents from March 23rd, taken by Jim W.(Thanks, Jim!) Dad is on the new nest incubating, and then Mom lands and takes over. At the time of this video, we're not 100% certain that there are three eggs in the nest bowl, and until we can see eaglet heads in the nest, we will not know for sure. Hatch time is estimated to be within the next week.

and this one on the Falcons

Raptor Resource Project
~ Great Spirit Bluff Peregrine Falcons ~

As mentioned in previous posts, the falcons are back at Great Spirit Bluff. We're still not able to positively ID them as Travis and Michelle from last year, but we're pretty sure it is them. They have been seen mating recently, and on the perch (yesterday) and also making a scrape in the nestbox which is an indication of preparing for nesting and egg laying.

You can view them on this link: http://www.ustream.tv/greatspiritblufffalcons

Last year Michelle laid the first egg on March 26th and the first hatch was May 3rd. Again, we are not certain it's Michelle and Travis, but we hope so. Stay tuned!

The picture of her has a look like "get that camera outta my face". haha She is pretty.

I love Peeps, these are too cute. I like the flower pot/jelly beans for an Easter centerpiece.

23 incredible things to do with Peeps (besides munching on them)

Rows of neon marshmallows are appearing in stores, confirming that spring really is here. And three or four cartons in, you might start to wonder if there's another way to consume those sugary Peeps — something that doesn't involve shoving 12 into your mouth at once. Later, when you’re groaning on the couch clutching your tummy, you just might realize that Peeps are like modeling clay for your wildest artistic ambitions — both in and out of the kitchen. Click through this photo gallery for some inspirational Peep art.

good morning AB :)

hubby is originally from miami and has tried his best to talk me into moving down there.... i just tell him he is off his rocker if he thinks as much as i freak out about tornado's that he would ever convince me to move down to hurricane central..lol.

nope..im good.... i cant say we will stay in ky our whole lives since the lifting of prohibition has made Denver,co ever enticing..... and i do love tie dye, bob marley, and sublime... so i think if we chose to move... we would probably end up there. we have some friends and relatives that live out that way also.

plus i think in terms of a tsunami.... japan actually is very mountainous and we seen how far inland their tsunami came..... i fear if one struck Florida as flat as it is, the damage path would reach clear into Georgia and Alabama and it would be buh-bye Louisiana also.

west Virginia has a nice little 50 mile radius pocket that hasn't seen a tornado, sink hole, or quake since we began recording them. i would maybe consider that... it very pretty up there in the fall like here also.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
