Hey David – this is a great newsletter. So many I talk to refer to the seemingly strengthening dollar, the DOW compared to a year ago, the “news reports” of economic recovery. These are nothing more than the powers that be kicking the “collapse can” further down the road. Hey, I don’t necessarily blame them for that. Given slim or none, go with slim. I guess they’re hoping for a break through idea; or maybe a miracle. In my humble opinion, it’s too far gone. It hasn’t fallen down around us yet, but it can’t help but do so. It’s mathmatically impossible to repay our national debt. Sure, print more money. That results in hyperinflation. Anyone see the picture of Germans pushing wheelbarrows of money to buy a loaf of bread; or burning piles of money to stay warm? That’s one result of hyperinflation. I hear a lot of, “it won’t happen here”, “they won’t let it”. Hey – “they” caused it. I love this country and our constitution dearly; but we are not mystical or magical. We are human, just like the rest of the world. The burden on this tower has exceeded its capacity to remain upright. The foundation is cracking and, although duct tape is being deployed wildly, it’s too late. The laws of physics say it will crumble. Slowly at first; but such things proceed exponentially.

He who hesitates is lost, my friends. Proceed with deliberate haste.

David,

You *may* want to contact me regarding storable foods. I’ll actually respond–in person–by phone or email.

David,

Even though I read the Good Book on a regular basis I’d love to see a concise layout of Biblical preparation to help convince those I know who think God will provide all w/ no effort on their part. Thanks for all you do.

Mike

David,

My name is Hank. I am enrolled in your course and have recently received
lesson 6. I am pleased so far with the course material although I must
admit that my actions are not yet up to speed with my reading. Regardless,
in today’s newsletter I saw the following that caught my eye:

“The Bible continually tells people to be responsible and voluntarily save
up during good times so that they will have provisions during bad times. If
you want specific verses on this, get back to me. If there’s enough demand,
I’ll do a lesson on it.”

I just wanted to let you know that I would like you to count me as an
interested subscriber and tally one up for “demand” for such subject
matter.

Great job, keep em’ coming and thanks,

-Hank

Hello every body. One thing people for get is 3 to 6 5gallon gas cans .Keep stored in a cool or out side place. Dont tell no one what you are doing.My sets on a trailer.Cover by a tap. Water containers are not always air tight. Bacteria can come a live in the water.Bleach is the fast way of cleaning water. 1 OR 2 tea spoons should kill the germs. You can boil the water or a fire. If it come down to drinking dirty color water. Stain it fist. Let it set so the settlement will fall to the bottom.
There is also Corine tablets. You can get them at Wall-mart or A camping supplies shop. Survival of the smartest. Some people think i am crazy .When i tell them to stock up. i would rather be wrong . And have a lot of stock food. Good luck Mark

Hello David,

Really enjoyed this week’s newsletter, especially, those 6 points on food & the economy.

Great facts everyone must know.

I’ve been telling people about these issues for quite sometime and most just blow it off. What a shame!

My profession is training elite tactical forces is survival fitness & conditioning. It’s a very unique program I developed over the years and it’s officially endorsed by the armed forces.

I would love to share this program and many more with you and your readers.

We live in Las Vegas and in KY. Las Vegas isn’t far from you and I would greatly enjoy meeting you.

Please let me know if your interested in meeting and exchanging great ideas, conversation and food.

Sincerely,
Stephen

David,
Please do if can, provide the Bible verses that reference preparedness. Especially interesting yo me was the one instructing the disciples to sell extra tunics to buy swords! Grew up as a Christian and NEVER heard that one before!
Thanks for your time,
Tim

I was just wandering what book “Even Jesus told the disciples to prepare for
bad times when he told them to sell their extra tunics so they could go out
and buy a sword” appeared. I can’t seem to find any reference to it in my
copy. I am interested in promoting your course but please don’t misquote the
bible. http://www.biblegateway.com is a quick way to fact check or quote without
searching paper copy.

Paul

Hey Paul,

Not to be nitpicky, but I believe “Bible” should be capitalized :)

In reference to your question, you are technically correct and I am technically wrong, although my statement WAS correct :)

Most versions of the Bible interpret “tunic” in Luke 22:36 as “cloak”, “garment” or “coat” and I can’t find one that says “tunic”. I just memorized it that way for some reason. Here are 10 or so different translations. http://bible.cc/luke/22-36.htm You’ll see that while they differ on their particular word for clothing, they all agree that Jesus told the disciples to sell their extra cloak/garment/coat/tunic and use the money to buy a sword.

And thank you for holding me to task on Biblical accuracy. In this instance I believe that I used a synonym that did not alter the meaning of the verse in context, but I don’t mind being challenged one bit.

Let me know what you need to get started promoting the course.

I hope that helps :)

David

Enjoyed this newsletter very much since I do live in Nashville, TN. The
response to the flood has been overwhelming; our city pulled together and
helped and are still helping one another. Being 61 years old and a single
grandmother of eight grandchildren and six children, I tell my family to be
prepared all of the time. I am continuously storing and stocking food, water,
seed and supplies, JUST IN CASE, they are needed. I am also armed and have
been accused of being a hoarder. I live in a suburban area in a decent
subdivision but I know things could turn very ugly quickly if the need were
to arise. I have a little storage barn and also every available closet for
storage.

My mother also lives with me and I know the value through my
experience with her of keeping stocked up on your prescriptions, over the
counter products and other medical supplies. I value your newsletters and
implement them into my daily life. Thank you very much for your guidance and
keep those letters coming.

Respectfully,

Melanie
