The Survival Podcast Episode-531- Life On Your Own Terms
Preparing you for when times get tough, or even if they don’t.
The reality though is if you don’t get this right, your life will never be what you really want it to be.  Prepping is about living life on your terms, your way, based on your choices even when bad things happen and the unprepared have to
compromise that.   Doing so take a strength and fortitude that all people have but most have burried, it takes three phrases we learned before we were five year of age that we have forgotten and it takes a knowledge of what we really want.
Connecting with these things is quite often uncomfortable but it is also extremely empowering.  My question for you today if we can’t live a life on our own terms during relatively good times, what chance do we have if the shit ever
really hits the fan?


Inside the Government’s Facebook Spy Operation
Federal agents are infiltrating social networks via sneaky friend requests and monitoring them via a special command center, according to documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Who cares? Well, prospective citizens, for one.
Also via EFF’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, the civil liberties group obtained slides showing how the Department of Homeland Security operates its “Social Networking Monitoring Center,”  particularly during Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration. As the EFF notes, it’s worrisome to see the government monitoring informational sites like NPR, BlackPlanet and DailyKos.


What is In the Flu Vaccine that Can Cause Infertility?
GlaxoSmithKline’s Fluarix swine flu vaccine, among others, contains Polysorbate 80, also known as Tween 80.
A study done in Slovakia on female rats found that when newborn rats were injected with the substance within a week of birth, they developed damage to the vagina and uterine lining, hormonal changes, ovarian deformities and infertility.

The package insert for Fluarix mentions that the manufacturer cannot guarantee your fertility will be unharmed. Further, if your fertility is compromised, recently passed laws protecting vaccine makers will prevent you from holding GlaxoSmithKline responsible.


Revealed: how seed market is controlled by Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow & DuPont
Since the mid-1990s just five biotech giants – Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow and DuPont – have bought up more than 200 other companies between them to dominate our access to seeds.
A patent gives a company exclusive rights to sell and develop a new invention. In the case of patents on plants and genes it grants them temporary monopolies and bans farmers from saving seeds, forcing them to buy new seeds from the company each year or pay a license to use patented seeds they have saved.


One third of Britons don’t have enough savings to survive just FIVE DAYS out of work
Nearly a third of Britons do not have enough savings to last them for just five days if they were unable to work, a survey has suggested.
Three out of 10 people have less than £249 set aside to see them through an emergency, a third of whom have no savings at all, according to high street bank HSBC.
The group said the sum was equivalent to just five days’ average take-home pay, well down on the three months’ salary that financial advisers suggest people have set aside as a safety net.

The Drop Sheet for the Second week of August

The Second American Revolution

August 10, 2009
Gerald Celente. Don’t know him. Look him up. His Trends Research Institute has predicted so many events in the last 20 years that he is worth listening to. The recent re-interest in Tea Parties has not gone unnoticed. Obamacare has been taking the brunt of this frustration of the American people. This frustration covers both parties, or as many think, our One Party system. Those politicians who are listening to their voters are being able to speak, while those who are not are getting booed out of the building. Contrary to controlled media stories, Tea Party people are concerned nonviolent Americans who want their country back.


Swine Flu Vaccines Contain LIVE H1N1 VIRUS!

August 3, 2009
It’s not a typo, the main ingredient in the GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis vaccines contain a LIVE VIRUS, an attenuated virus meaning it’s a weakened form of the swine flu virus. Attenuated vaccines can be deadly and cause virus shedding, when a person is injected with an attenuated live virus the organism moves through the human body possibly infecting the host and then exiting through the feces, mucous membranes and saliva glands of the inoculated person. This is called ‘virus shedding’ and can last for weeks.


Bob Chapman on gold, silver, a bank holiday and the elite

Daily Bell: Regardless of what Western intel can or can’t do, the system is obviously under stress. You’ve said your sources predict a bank holiday. Can you expand?
Chapman: An investigative source as well as three well-placed subscribers told me that a number of US Embassies were being instructed to purchase local currencies. That can only mean that government believes that foreign sources may not accept US dollars as happened in early 2008.
Daily Bell: They would be stockpiling currency to ensure local liquidity?
Chapman: It is not simply an exercise in embassy self-protection. My sources believe that this would be caused by a plunge in the dollar and perhaps even a short bank holiday as a training exercise for a bigger, longer holiday later.


Capricorn One & Network two films to revisit

If you have never seen the mid 1970’s movies Capricorn One or Network, may I suggest doing so sooner than later. Capricorn One is the story of a failing space agency’s Mars landing hoax to keep the funding coming. The astronauts’ families are used to get them to cooperate with the hoax. One of the best illustrations of compartmentalization as a technician discovers an anomaly and one person in the know works to continue the cover-up.
In the film Network you get the famous line “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take this anymore!” The better nugget in the film is Ned Beatty’s “Corporate Cosmology” speech. Sure films like Enemy of the State are more action packed and look slicker, but you just can’t beat O.J.’s early work and classic quotable movie lines.

These films in part or whole can be found on your favorite video search engine.

Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to verify that genetically modified crops perform as advertised. That is because agritech companies have given themselves veto power over the work of independent researchers.
It would be chilling enough if any other type of company were able to prevent independent researchers from testing its wares and reporting what they find—imagine car companies trying to quash head-to-head model comparisons done by Consumer Reports, for example. But when scientists are prevented from examining the raw ingredients in our nation’s food supply or from testing the plant material that covers a large portion of the country’s agricultural land, the restrictions on free inquiry become dangerous.
