The basics of preparedness

  1.  Awake - Awake to reality. Seek real facts. Study history & human nature.

  2. Ponder - Pondering invites inspiration. After studying, ponder on what you have learned.

  3. Act / Prepare - Preparedness should be balanced both temporally and spiritually.
    Temporal preparedness focuses on the physical necessities to sustain life; Mind, Body & Home. Fill your mind with knowledge. Live as healthy as you can. Live debt free and lay, for times of famine, a storage supply of life's basics.
    Spiritual preparedness is returning to God, understanding Him better and aligning yourself with the morals and standards He has given.

  4. Report - "Where performance is measured, performance improves. Where performance is measured and reported back, the rate of improvement accelerates." Thomas S. Monson

  5. Share - Once you are awake and prepared, help someone else.

Economics for beginners:

Waking up - Plato's allegory of the cave.

They are working hard, but for who?
Dennis Kucinich made this statement to the treasury department.


In his address, Washington:

  • Extols the benefits of the federal government. "The unity of government...is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence...of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize."
  • Warns against the party system. "It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration....agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one....against another....it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption...thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."
  • Stresses the importance of religion and morality. "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports...Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice?...and let us, with caution, indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion...reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
  • Speaks on stable public credit. "...cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible...avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt....it is essential that you...bear in mind, that towards the payments of debts there must be Revenue, that to have Revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised, which are not...inconvenient and unpleasant..."
  • Warns against permanent foreign alliances. "It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world..."
  • Talks about an over-powerful military establishment. "...avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments, which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to Republican Liberty."
  • Asks forgiveness from his mistakes. "In reviewing the incidents of my administration I am unconscious of intentional error, I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors. Whatever they may be, I fervently beseech
    the Almighty to avert or mitigate the evils to which they may tend. I shall also carry with me the hope that my country will never cease to view them with indulgence and that, after forty-five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal, the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion, as myself must soon be to the mansions of rest."

 Sometimes City Council when doesn't make a lot of sense...
(Yes I'm aware that makes no sense, but then neither does the video below)
