The Signs are everywhere you look now days.
In front of homes.
On forlorn vehicles.
Everyone is trying to dump their gas guzzlers, but who wants to buy?
They are trying to unload their over mortgaged properties, but who can afford them?
Oil has hit a new high at $143 a barrel, driven up by the commodity traders once again. This rampant greed by a small sector of society is making life grim for those on fixed income and the lower wage earning public. It is putting the squeeze on most middle class incomes also, for the most part because they are so deeply in debt to the American dream.
Burst the oil bubble
CONTRACTS FOR BIG OIL IN IRAQ CONFIRM EARLIER SUSPICIONS
Clamp down on these economy destroying bastards you do nothing Congress! Nationalize the damn oil and fuel industry and get these essentials under control again!
I hate government meddling, but there comes a time when enough is enough! Do we let these bastards destroy our nation in the name of Capitalism and profit taking or do we take control and bring this price gouging to an end!
THE CURE FOR HIGH GAS AND FOOD PRICES
Summer is finally here in the PNW. Temperatures have gone from the mid 60's to the mid 90's overnight. I hate it when the weather does that! The garden is going to love it as long as I give it plenty of water.
My grape vine is growing well; it is a cutting I got when the neigbors trimmed their arbor 2 years ago. I just cut the root end on a bevel and poked it into the ground and when spring came around, It Grew! They are a small green grape with seeds and are very sweet when ripe in the fall.
The other plants are doing well now that the torrential rains have quit inundating us daily. By the way, PNW stands for Pacific North Wet.
I have been rather busy around the house since I am now nearly over this cursed cough and sore throat. Allergys compounded by sinus problems?
Time to hit the yard sales that are everywhere. Some really good bargins are out there to be had. Even if you don't need some of the bargins, they might be worth purchasing to sell on eBay. Use the profits to buy more prep gear. Just be wary of paying too much or buying something of no use just because it is bargin priced. Tools are generally always a good investment.
Be wary of electronics and old computers. The old style monitors are considered hazardous waste when you try to dispose of them, as are most old electronics.
You may find a few firearms this way also, as well as reloading equipment and such. Fishing gear, boating gear, hunting, trapping, etc...
So keep your eyes peeled and stop at every sale you can find. Who knows what treasures you may find!
