This is my second blog.

My first blog chronicled my experiences over three years caring for my dad as he lived through and finally died from Alzheimer's. That is the book that is for sale.

This second blog kind of chronicles of life, what it is like to start your life over in your late 50's. After caretaking, you are damaged, file bankruptcy, and the world doesn't care what you did. After 8 months of unemployment, you wake each day knowing the world doesn't want you. Finally you do find a job, 5 weeks before homelessness, but doing what you did 30 years ago and getting paid what you did 30 years ago. So this is starting over.

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Frankly, I've totally had it with the Jade Helm thing.  I'm still listening and studying all these shows and people who are talking about it and finally said enough.

I swear some of these talking heads pay no attention to what they said last week and what they say this week.

So far, if you listen to Dave Hodges, Hagmann & Hagmann, Alex Jones, Steve Quayle, John Moore, and all their guests, this is what you get in no particular order.  Actually, it's probably unfair putting Alex Jones in that, haven't listened to him for at least a year, maybe longer, just guessing he is on board.

The US military, maybe with UN Forces or The Chinese Army or the Russian Army is going to have an operation in this country in 15 states or 30 some states where people who are 'unfriendlies' are going to be taken from their homes and offices and swept away to FEMA camps or local Wal-Marts which are really now owned by the Chinese or Russians and UN or Chinese or Russian forces along with or not your local police department are going to knock on every door in these 15 states or across the country and confiscate every gun owned by real americans but not gang members in the cities apparently, and the reason for this is we cannot pay our debts and have promised China our national parks, women, smart phones or something else in return for those bonds and we will have a big economic collapse either before or after and then nuclear war.

Or something like that, it is confusing listening to all this and each week the reasons all change except for 1.  scare the crap out of listeners and 2. offer to sell something to make the catastrophe less painful.  All you need is to buy more stored foods, gold, silver, ammo, etc to survive the event.

Basic rule of selling.  Find a need/want, exploit the pain of such need or want, offer solution.  There lies the verbal wanderings of every politician, every radio talk show host these days.  Democrats scare every black voter in every election with 'if republicans win, slavery will return' or ' asking for proof you are a US citizen is a way to prevent blacks from voting'. Or 'if republicans win, abortion will be banned' even though Reagan, Bush I and Bush II were in office and none of it has happened.

So it goes with all this Jade Helm thing.  Do any of these people stop and think this stuff thru at all?  First of all, all this 'inside' information they are getting from sources who KNOW.  Excuse me, but we live in a country where every phone call, email, text, cell call are recorded by every provider and the US government.  So how do all these 'insiders' who call these people regularly manage to avoid detection?  I'm sorry, but V or X or Z or whatever would have been busted long ago.

And so, let's give them the benefit of the doubt.  Let's say this summer, the US military with or without foreign troops, invades Texas, Utah, Florida,  and grab people up in the middle of the night, go door to door to take guns etc.  What do you think is going to happen in the other 30 states?  Oh, sure, some pencil neck liberal estrogen powered NY Times reading types will think its a good thing, but what do you suppose the people of ID, MT, MO, ND, SD, WI, MI, PA, VA, WV, VT, NH, MA etc are going to do or say?  I thought of including Minnesota on that list, but the Twins are in first place right now and they won't even notice anything else.

In other words, you can't partially attack some of the states, taking people to FEMA camps who speak out against Obama, and expect it to work.

So the other theory is there will be an EMP attack, wiping out all electronics, the electrical system, then China and Russia will come in to 'aid' and just take over.  Problem with an EMP is you know all that debt we owe China?  Well those bonds are no longer paper, just electronic records and they EMP us and suddenly we no longer have records of any of those bonds, so, we don't owe it.  And China and
Russia won't invade the US as long as we all have guns, and any attempt to go door to door in this country will quickly turn into a massive fire fight because as I said before, I have no desire to ever shoot a cop, but being shot and killed by the cops would be better than being left unarmed when gangs will still be armed, because you can bet your ass that any attempt to disarm Americans by the military or law enforcement does not include going door to door in South Central, the West Side of Chicago, the south side of Chicago, Bed Sty, or Detroit.

In other words, this whole line of some massive government, military, foreign troop takeover of parts of the US where all these talk show hosts are getting inside information and we are going to be taken to FEMA camps/WalMarts in the middle of the night for not liking Obama is a crock of crap designed to scare the crap out of listeners to get them to buy products advertised on the shows.  There, I said it.

However, and remember I don't sell or advertise on my blog, at least to my knowledge there are no ads on my blog other than my lowest selling book in the history of Amazon, what might fit this whole thing is a coming event that is known, kept secret from the populace, and they are putting troops in place and preparing for some comet crashing into the Atlantic or North America or Yellowstone going to blow, etc etc etc.

I don't buy the economic thing.  All currency is fiat.  Gold is fiat.  Silver is fiat.  Paper is fiat.  Credits are fiat.  We could default on our debt, kill the dollar, institute a new currency over a weekend, one dollar equals one credit, make it all electronic, and while there would be some serious chaos for awhile, Europe, Asia, etc will eventually accept US Credits because we buy more crap than anyone else.  Saudi's will take our credits for oil or we will let them go and they will be overrun by the other muslim countries in a flash.  Israel will take our credits because the same.  So will the European countries.  China and Russia might balk, but when the rest of Asia comes along because they want our threat of protection to hold back China.

A reboot, a start over, it's all 1's and 0's on computers anyway.  So there is no need for Jade Helm for the economic reasons, though it would be very smart to have our fleet at sea protecting the coasts, Hawaii, and Alaska for a time, along with some B1 bombers flying at all times.

So it keeps coming back to some geological event.

In the end of all this out of my butt speculation, it all comes down to this.  We live in a world at war.  It is at war over ideologies, land, resources, economics, and politics.  The average person is the US is really not all that different from the average person in France, Sweden, Russia, China, Chile, South Africa, Canada, etc.  We all just want to getup, earn a good living, buy our family stuff, have a roof over our head, get old and die in bed with our loved ones around telling us we mattered.  But our lives are controlled at all times by the megalomaniacs who worship power.

But most importantly, we live in a world at war between God and Satan.  We live in a world where we choose.  And it's easy to be a good man in good times, but what will you choose to be in bad times?  Look around the world, neighbors who got along for years in Yugoslavia, fractured when the country fractured and Serbs living next to Croatians for years now lined up Croatians and put bullets in their heads; Croatians lined up Muslims, Muslims lined up Serbs, Croatians lined up Serbs.  It's hard to be good in bad times, very few can really do it; though we all like to think WE will be different.  We won't.  That neighbor you always say hi to, borrow tools from each other, maybe drank a few beers with, will be busting down your door to kill you in bad times.  Or you him.  That is the battle between God and Satan.  That is Job.  All Satan wanted to see was Job curse God, for Job to give up on God.

And whatever happens, from nothing to the worst possible thing you can imagine, cubed, this is what it is all about.  Will you trust God, will you curse God?  Will you ignore God altogether?

I know people don't believe in God, His Son, the Bible, and the often ignored Holy Ghost.  Here is an interesting factoid for you non believers to chew on.

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth.  Genesis 1:1.

Now, if you had the hebrew in front of you of this verse, do you know each letter in Hebrew, and Greek, have a number associated with each letter.

Well, if you take that first verse and do the following:  take the number of letters, then, add up all the numbers each letter represent and multiply the two.  now, add up all the words, then add up the product of all the words.  then divide and it comes out to 3.1416.


What are the odds of that?

You can do the same thing with the Greek and John 1:1.  Except it doesn't equal pi.  It equals 2.71828. Which just happens to be E, the natural log.  Strange how the two constant, infinite mathematical constants show up there, huh.

So, I guess it comes down to this.  One, I'm thru listening to all these hucksters trying to scare the crap out of everyone.  Well, until Jade Helm is over and I want to listen to them explain how nothing happened, how their public outcries prevented it from happening, and see what the next end of the world sky is falling thing they will come up with.  Two, someday, life is going to go very bad, it's going by the book, as Johnny Cash use to sing, and when it does it does not matter if you are prepped and hiding in a nuke proof bunker with 10 years of food and water or if you don't even have so much as an extra tooth brush, your survival is going to be based on one thing and one thing only.  God.  If God wants you here, you will be here.  If not, you won't.

So going to check out to see how the Twins did now.

Well, take me back down where cool water flow, yeh.
Let me remember things I love.
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite,
walkin' along the river road at night,
barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight.

I can hear the bull frog callin' me.
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree.
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water,
shoe fly, dragon fly, get back t your mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh,
with flat car riders and cross-tie walkers.
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
said, you're gonna find the world is smould rin
an' if you get lost come on home to Green River.
