From Blinded Sheep to One Eye Open at All Times  

Who I am is not important. I am simply one of the many former middle class Americans who has been forced, due to economics, to take a long hard look at where this country is going, and where I want to be next year, and the year after that. It is clear that things in this country are changing, and we need to prepare for the future.

My journey down the rabbit hole began with the following thought: "What if nothing is as it seems, and everything I have been told is a lie." This thought kept rolling around in my head until I was compelled to act. I started dissecting every scrap of information I heard on the news, and went to the Internet to do my research. What I found was that I had indeed been lied to, and was going to continue to be lied to by the mainstream media because it is bought and paid for by large multi-national corporations who do not want us to know the truth behind genetically modified terminator seeds, or anything else of importance. We are mere consumers. The heads of these multi-national corporations, whose only goal is to make money, are bleeding Americans dry. We the people are expendable. Until we realize that, we will continue to act as if nothing is wrong until we get flushed down the toilet.

Our country is being sold piece by piece to the highest bidder by a few powerful elites who have turned our economic system into an all-out grab for money and power, man the torpedoes, full steam ahead! A declaration of war on the American people has been declared, and we are in for the fight of our lives.  At this point, some of us are having a difficult time making ends meet. Maybe we are cutting down on our fuel consumption, or making other sacrifices to save money in order to hang on to what we have. We 'aint seen nothin' yet. Hanging on is going to get harder. To combat the forces of evil and take back our country, it is time to make a change, one person at a time. 

I invite you to follow me down the path to take back my independence and break away from the corporate teat. It might not always be pretty, but I can assure you, it will not be dull; and just maybe, we can learn from each other.

Thinking about how you can eliminate various expensive and unnecessary chemicals from your environment? A copper sink just might fit the bill. I have found them on eBay starting at $139. Since copper is a natural anti-bacterial surface, it is not necessary to disinfect or scrub your copper.
