Tomorrow has come...

A classic old song says, "tomorrow
never comes." Well, tomorrow HAS
come. Are you ready for it?

A foolish old uncle named Sam
got himself in one heck of a jam;
borrowed all he could get
to spend his way out of debt,
and now Uncle Sam's on the lam.

The Prepper Shaker: Got Plastic?

In 2004, motivational speaker and author Joe Tye presented some sobering facts about America's addiction to credit and its consequences for the next generation. But take heart! There IS a way out, and it starts right where you live. Go here to get your "prep pill."

From the Funny Farm:
School 1958 vs. School Today

Scenario #1: Johnny goes quail hunting before school, pulls into school parking lot with shotgun in gun rack.

  • 1958: Vice principal comes over, looks at Johnny's shotgun, goes to his car, and gets his own shotgun to show Johnny.
  • Today: School goes into lockdown, the FBI is called, Johnny is hauled off to jail, and never sees his truck or gun again. Counselors are called in to assist traumatized students and teachers.

Scenario #2: Johnny gets a headache and takes some aspirin to school.

  • 1958: Johnny shares aspirin with the school principal out on the smoking dock.
  • Today: Police are called and Johnny is expelled from school for drug violations. His car is searched for drugs and weapons.

Scenario #3: Johnny takes apart leftover Independence Day firecrackers, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle, and blows up an anthill.

  • 1958: Ants die.
  • Today: Homeland Security and the FBI are called and Johnny is charged with domestic terrorism. Teams investigate parents, siblings are removed from the home, computers are confiscated, and Johnny's dad goes on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.

Prep Talk: Initiative or Excuses?

Do you know what crucial quality distinguishes a go-getter with lots of initiative from a couch potato with lots of excuses?

HINT: It's a five letter word which causes Fearless Action Instigated Through Hope.

That's right: FAITH is where true initiative comes from. It doesn't matter which church you go to, or whether you go to church at all. It's something anyone can develop with practice.

And faith works just as effectively for growing your food storage as it does for growing corn, growing a family, or growing closer to God.

Faith, therefore, is a "working" word ... not a "sitting around" word. Something to think about...
