NO BLATANT ADS PLEASE
A joke, a rant and a review.
So Melania sez to Donald, "Please quit wearing my bras, you're stretching them out." And that is how her pet name for him came about, TITTIES TRUMP.
LOL. Yes, humor is subjective.
RANT: Against myself.
I have been very accurate about this long hot summer, predicting several months ago about the riots, etc. But although I have been accurate, I also have been derelict in giving ACTIONS, or plans or making maps on the future.
Protests and Covid have been a 1-2 punch to our guts, and we're still in the early rounds of the fight. Add in the coming election, and all that comes with it, BS from all sides...and toss in a wild fire or two, a hurricane and maybe even an earthquake and YIKES all mighty.
I have been talking to scores of people these last couple of months, and in the eye of the cyclone, I've found some very peaceful people.
The very peaceful are those with a chunk of land, farming, homesteading and being as self sufficient as they can be. Last year we talked about Lyman Woods and the whole history of Troy Bilt and that 1940's ad about a 5 acre retreat from the city.
This year, I am finding people who can see the writing on their suburban walls, and one of the main reasons people live in the burbs is, THE SCHOOLS.
Early indicators are, even if the schools reopen, many will opt out for home schooling (booming opportunity).
Also, the change in many jobs, with large numbers finding out they can do their jobs remotely, no longer tethers families to a locale. The result, a very fast growing trend is...
BUYING land, 5 to 10 acre lots are sizzling right now, especially in rural areas. As I wrote about a decade and a half ago, CO-OP land buys, by family and friends shares the costs. One big difference these days, is solar power has become more affordable while also getting more efficient.
Solar will continue to boom, but not by the fake get rich quick companies of the past that tried to cash in with crappy products.
WATER, a big issue. Water rights will bring court fights. States rights, which we are seeing TODAY, have issues with FEDERAL rights, this only gets worse.
FOOD, always a biggie. I say it again, get some heirloom seeds, plant them and gather a store house of seeds. Along these lines, supplements will continue to boom, albeit not a single one has any proven efficacy to it, other than anecdotal stories (which can make someone rich almost overnight).
In the world of Chatteling, I'm seeing (and profiting from) the sales of RV's and mobile homes are skyrocketing. Gas prices make hitting the roads affordable, IFFIN the state lets you in. If this continues for awhile, see those toll booths become check points with armed guards. Dire, but a real possibility.
I am still gathering a ton of information, and doing some interviews, in case anyone is interested, to be included in my newest report targeted to be released August 5, 2020.
I cover all of the above and will be providing many resources for you all to either get further information or in touch with groups or sites which may be of interest to you.
OVERCOME PANDEMIC UNCERTAINTY WITH FOCUSED ACTIVITY is the name of the report, and if you have any requests, want to be a part of it, or be interviewed, we have a couple of weeks left, to get it all pulled together.
PS I do have a section on guns, ammo, self defense, protections and all that stuff too.
