      Re: Facing Foreclosure!

    I actually work for this bank in the loss mitigation department. Please let me know if you need help. I am sorry you have been waiting so long for a response. Unfortuately with all the hiring they do in this department most are not knowledgable about how to really help borrowers. What state are you in? Is your first mortgage with the same institution?

      Re: Land purchase in the US

    Thank you for your response. We don’t have debt right now are are renting an apartment. Based on what you said you still feel it is better to rent an apartment with no land then have a mortgage with land? We could have a down payment, but are unable to pay cash for the entire amount.

    I will do more homework on the property.

      Land purchase in the US

    I was wondering what people thought about purchasing land in the US? Is it worth it? I found 5 acres and a house near a small commuinty. It looks fantastic! The price is 200k. Most of this discussion was about different countries. Is there no point to buy in the US now? I am a first time homebuyer and really need help any insight about what to look for or to check out further would be helpful.

      Re: Collapse Survival – should we move and live rurally ?

    I have been doing alot of research in answering the same questions. I would like to comment of a few you asked above.

    making own bread……is simple from start to finish it takes time. You will need a good hand mill for the wheat and prepare yourself to gain a few pounds. (My husband loves homemade bread and eats alot of it)

    It is a good idea to learn how to cook meals on a wood stove with the foods you grow (or have in an emergency stash). That way you are prepared for anything.

    Bikes are a great idea. Don’t forgot though that if SHTF that everything will be small community based. Walking like the good old days will be the norm.

     

    The more prepared you are the less likely you will worry if anything should happen. A couple days ago there was a post on Recommended books. I am sorry I dont have the link, but all those books would be helpful.

      Re: Youtube video of family involved in the Ohio food raid

    "They weren’t pointing guns at people, but their guns were out." From article above

    Maybe the police can understand the difference between guns out or pointing. I am a regular citizen I doubt anyone put in that situation would say "Oh yes they had their guns out but they were just in the air not pointing at anyone". There are many sides to this tale. I am beginning to believe that the police and any other "protection teams" were unaware of the reasoning behind the warrants. All in all, this seems like a poor waste government resources. Our tax dollars paid for all those people to do the raid. I am sure a simple door knock would have been preferable and cheaper at first.

      Re: Youtube video of family involved in the Ohio food raid

    We still have an advantage…..we should never forget that. We have knowledge and understanding. I think they made a movie about this ,Enemy of the State (Gene Hackman and Will Smith). It is still possible to use their tricks against them. Despite what we may feel….it is always harder to catch one person. Thank you for posting the video. Some are saying they deserved this because of what was in their contract. I disagree, no one deserves to be treated like this in their own country.

      Re: Any ideas?

    Welcome!

     I am also 23, but I am jealous you work online? What do you do?

    Before I can assist you with your question…..it is important to know if you have family, any outstanding debt or specific long term goals? There is no one answer for everyone so it is important that you have decided what your goals are.  

    Best of luck

      Re: When do we breakout the pitchforks?

    "Lower inflation data
    is certainly welcome for the American people," said deputy press
    secretary Tony Fratto. "The significant drop in energy prices acts like
    a huge tax cut in our economy."

     from MSNBC http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28256475/

     I don’t know how others feel, but despite the drop in prices, it does not deserve the title "tax cut". They make it seem like our household expenses should be cut in half. 

     

    I understand why you prefer to think of any other cause except for conspiracy……but then I see things like this. It is a challenge and I really don’t know what to do for the future. I guess that is how they want us to feel. Alone and powerless. It is easier to accept "change".
