Thanks Selco for having provided this forum and alerting us to the new one. Early on this was a great spot for prepper type discussions and getting input from others around the world, but it did evolve into mostly a US political discussion group which I suspect caused many to stop participating.July 9, 2018 at 12:00 pm #70449
Tolik is right. People like that who will support themselves and play by the rules are not a priority for the social justice warriors in the federal bureaucracy, especially given they are white Christians. I think Australia is the only western country that is welcoming South African whites.July 7, 2018 at 1:48 pm #70415
Just as people need to be cognizant if they live in areas where wildfires can happen, people also need to be cognizant if they live in areas with flood potential. FEMA won’t be coming to your aid come SHTF.
The potential for a field fire is one of the reasons I mow and weed whack around a one room schoolhouse built in 1808 that is across the road from me. It is owned by a defunct group whose members are mostly deceased and is essentially an abandoned building, so I do my part until the day comes the local historic society can figure out how to take ownership. My fear is if the grass were allowed to grow into a field that some idiot tossing a cigarette out their window could ignite a fire that would quickly consume the building.June 21, 2018 at 11:09 am #70111
Whirli, welcome to the future. Single user bathrooms becoming unisex are rapidly becoming the norm. I believe it is now the law in VT. Multi-user bathrooms are slowly trending that way too. That you encountered it on a college campus is not surprising.
Of the many things to bemoan in the world today this one doesn’t bother me much. Women only use stalls so their privacy is maintained. Women can’t use the urinals so men’s privacy is maintained as well. Last year my 3 year old granddaughter tried standing at the toilet to pee like she saw the little boy next door do, but it didn’t work out so well.
The piece of this though that concerns me are the men-hater feminists looking for their opportunity to declare themselves a victim of male aggression. I would not want to be alone in a multi-user bathroom with one of them for fear of being accused of something.
While the bathroom situation may generally work, carrying it over to locker rooms is a step too far. I have heard that many women’s locker rooms already have private shower stalls & dressing areas vs the open showers and dressing areas men’s locker rooms have, and that the trend will be to make men’s locker rooms like women’s. Making them unisex could well be not too far off in the future, and again my concern would be the man-hater feminists looking for victimhood status. It is sad that men have had to become cautious of such situations.April 25, 2018 at 11:51 pm #68634
What Wells Fargo is doing is closing a drug dealer loophole. You can deposit all the cash you want into your account but for example your drug dealer nephew can’t launder cash through your account.
If you deposit $10,000 cash into your account the bank is mandated to report it to the feds, unless you have a pre-arranged waiver that precludes that reporting. Those waivers are for known businesses that routinely have large cash deposits.
Where you will really encounter problems is if the banks detects you “structuring”. That can take the form of breaking up your deposit between different branches so as to keep each one under $10,000, or regularly doing deposits just under $10,000, or asking what the limit is to trigger reporting to the feds, or even breaking up your deposit over several days to keep each one under $10,000. The bank’s computers will flag possible structuring for closer review and possible reporting.
Drug dealers need to launder their cash. That’s what all of this stuff is about.

Mike, G.O.O.D.”Get Out Of Dodge” as in how you will get yourself home or to a safe place when it hits the fan or to get yourself situated somewhere safe in anticipation of things falling apart in the future. For example, I purposely relocated to a far more sustainable and safe place vs where I had been living. In choosing my specific home I had criteria that made sense to preppers, but that others couldn’t see, to the point that some of our non-prepper friends didn’t understand the choice I made.April 17, 2018 at 3:30 pm #68059
Welcome Mike. If you look in the archives you might find some good prep discussions that interest you.March 31, 2018 at 1:59 pm #65905
It has long seemed to me that most who espouse socialist sentiment are somewhat lazy people who want the benefits of the hard work and sacrifice others have made without working hard or making sacrifices themselves. They are often the students who take the easy majors in college and the feel good courses and then blame their inability to support themselves on the capitalist system rather than their poor choices and lack of useful skills.
This is one of the reasons I retired early. After decades of 50-60 hour weeks and much sacrifice to get where I did, I was tired of paying far far more in taxes than these people were and then being cast by them as the problem and told that I should pay even more than I was. I was the one working long hours and unable to have a vacation or even a weekend without checking my phone and laptop for messages that had to be answered. I reached the point where I said no more, somebody else can support them.March 16, 2018 at 1:11 pm #64224
For a State to be allowed to secede by agreement with the rest would be vastly complicated dealing with the finances and rights of those choosing to remain in California. The negotiations would take a decade at the minimum. National Debt, Federally owned properties, military bases, Social Security, and Medicare just to start the list. Beyond that the remaining US would then have a “Mexican” style border nearly twice as long as we have now to secure. Assuming CA would essentially adopt an open borders policy with Mexico, that doubling of the border would allow vast numbers of new illegals to pour into the US. To the extent the LaRaza gang has influence in CA politics, they might encourage that in hopes of further Hispanifying (my made up word) more of the US so as to eventually expand CA to include additional States. I’ve read that CA, as wealthy as it supposedly is, already has the highest poverty rate in the nation. Cut off Uncle Sugar paying for their entitlements and how will CA be able to support them? How many would seek a better deal by leaving CA for the US?March 15, 2018 at 8:58 pm #64041
When the words Civil War are used, people think of what happened in the 1860’s. That just isn’t going to happen.
There are States that are deemed predominantly conservative and others deemed to be predominantly liberal, but those tallies mostly include the Moderates that disagree with both the Far Right and the Far Left and vote for whichever person they see as closer to them politically. The Far Left and the Far Right may get all the media attention but they are not the majority of the population. The majority is somewhat to the left or the right of middle. This is how “liberal” States like Vermont and Massachusetts can come to have Republican Governors such as we currently do. The Republican candidates were closer to the middle of the spectrum than the Democrat candidates. In the last election here in VT, the Democrat candidate was just too far to the left for people that naturally lean a bit to the left, so they went with a moderate Republican instead. If faced with a choice between a conservative Republican vs a far left Democrat they’ll go with the far left Democrat because that person would be closer to those who are a bit to the left of middle.
California, LaRaza, and their buddies may want to separate but they don’t have the means to make it happen.March 2, 2018 at 1:37 pm #62287
Thanks PILGRIM for checking in, and congratulations on your new son. I have often wondered how the folks we know from this forum in SA have been doing. The US media largely ignores SA because it would be politically incorrect to point out the corruption, crime, and decline of the country under black rule.
My guess is that the disarming will focus on whites first, and we know what that will lead to. I realize that SA is home to the white population and that many of you go back centuries, but there is no future there for whites. Leave SA even if it means starting from scratch someplace new. Your kids will have a better life.
There is something about human nature that we quickly accept our circumstances as normal and adjust to whatever that reality is. There are far better realities than SA in many other countries. I live in Vermont, a small State of 625,000 people you’ve probably never heard of. Vermont averages about 1 murder per month for the entire State. The population is 95% white, 1% black, and about 1.5% each Asian and Hispanic. We don’t have bars on our windows & doors or walls around our property. Most people don’t have security systems for their homes. Doors aren’t always locked. We don’t think about carjackings or robberies. Vermont isn’t the only place like this. New Hampshire and Maine are very similar to Vermont in every respect. Elsewhere in the US and in Canada you can also find wonderful places to live, far from the growing chaos that is SA. There can be a good life for you someplace else after SA.February 18, 2018 at 1:07 pm #61306
I survived the earthquake Brulen. Didn’t know it happened until I saw it on the news but I survived nonetheless. If I recall there is a fault off of Cape Ann (Rockport/Gloucester area of Boston’s North Shore) that had a 6+ quake in 1755 so you never know I suppose.February 5, 2018 at 5:20 pm #60343
Welcome. New voices are always a good thing.February 3, 2018 at 5:04 pm #60181
I liken the “whites in Africa” situatio, especially South Africa and places like Zimbabwe to many of the immigrant populations that came to the US and still come to the US. They do it so that the kids have a better chance at life, even if it means taking a step down socio-economically themselves due to language barriers, their foreign education not being recognized here, or having to leave all they had behind to escape wherever they came from.
It is long past time for whites in SA to leave. There is no future for their children there, and perhaps not for themselves either.February 3, 2018 at 1:20 am #60119
Those leases are only good until the next crazy comes into power and cancels them. I’m amazed any whites stuck it out this long.
