Mmm, biceps in Marsala...roast leg with mango chutney...
All joking aside, we should get a couple thousand people together and rush the whitehouse with pitchforks, torches and BBQ sauce.

The first link: might ask for a password, I had originally posted to just hit cancel and stop in your browser. But it occurred to me this might be construed as cracking or something, which was never my intention, even in the process of hitting cancel. I've since gone back to the site and it did not ask, so I don't know. Hippie your thoughts are welcome.
I will try to get some more info (sources) posted later.

a world order will happen evenually, we in the US only hope we end up as the central ruling class.
oops forgot the nuke in the world.
its best to always be prepared for the worst and then each good day seems a blessing.

I do understand what a colapse in our economy would bring abought without question.
Im just a bit slow on how a changing money market
would cause such a collapse.
The only way I can picture it in my head is to liken it to the fall of sadams regiem. Where his money lost all value. Since this has happened just what are the people of Iraq using for currency. Did we convert them to the dolar and just trade the Dinar? for dollars?
Im just not to clear on the whole monetery implicatin and how it all works....
Call me simple.....

At one point Hip said something that caught my ear. Something about where to go when the fit hits the shan.
I suggest Rural Arkansas. There is plenty of space in the ozark mountains. My extended family will be dominating the northwest corner, so just mention my alias. They all know it.
Eastern Arkansas = good farm land, but already raped 10 ways from sunday.
Lets all meet in the Ozarks.

We could all band together per say in the pursuit of survival.

which actually was my intention
but alas, my time is already spent

An interesting lawsuit in Ca. was a farmer whom set a Honda generator (not running) at the bottom of a high voltage tower on his land. The coils of conductor in the inductance field produced low voltage (110 v) that was usable. They found the voltage drop on their lines & sued him but lost as it was decided the power co. didn't own the air between the lines & his generator.
Upon actually paying more attention to this thread, I have knot diagrams I can find & post. I totally got basic power covered & some advanced, feel free to ask questions. If I don't know it I can find & explain in laymans terms but safety is the biggest deal. Maybe I can post basic safety for electrical procedures. Now Hip swimming up to a panel to shut it off, even if your hand is bone dry thats balls. I'd just get safe & wait for it to short out before I did that, as I know exactly the implications of such an act. I'd grab the weatherhead outside the house, separate the conductors of the S.E. (service entrance) cable & cut them individually & cap them off long before I went line voltage scuba diving." Line" v for houses is 220, "low" is 110, voltage doesn't add in a linear fashion, +/- 10% is acceptable but the multiplier is 1.73 for A.C (110, 115, 120 is the same deal). Houses are supplied w 110, 110, a neutral & ground. Any questions I know off the top of my head I'll varify w/sources just because in this thread it might be someones' life counting on it but I think I'll try to find some safety literature & basic first aid maybe tomorrow.
Around here the license test is still on '99 N.E.C. (National Electrical Code) but I'm actually more familiar w/2002. Inspectors/counties are usually atleast one code book behind, why in a mystery but it seems like gov lag & a money thing. I can quote verse & scripture from them but a layman who picks one up (code book) wouldn't know what the hell it means due to archaic language which they do deliberately because Harry Homeowner has no business trying to interpret it.

i knew the implications, too
just had a basement full of weed
and could not risk the authorities coming out...
in my world
death beats 20 years in the pen.

I don't hate Bush..I love laughing at him and watching his everyday struggles in the Whitehouse, but he really is messing things up. Declaring war on Iran would be a death wish.
I have the same feeling of a big attack coming...makes me think twice about investing in a business here in the U.S... My advice to survive would be leaving the U.S. Chances are, you will not be killed by any attacks here in the U.S. if you stay, but the economic crisis will be harsh..
every empire ends, and it seems the end of the U.S. empire is soon approaching

i sure wouldn't bet money on that,
the usa is exercising
considering the arsenal at its' disposal.
i'd bet they'd use those weapons
before they accept any defeat like you envision.
if the usa goes down
it's taking the rest of the world

a few but not all,
Guess it killed the plants
i quickly salvaged what i could
once we pumped the water out.
