1 – I was born in Montreal on February 12, 1950. My parents were also born in Montreal.
2 – Anne and I have been married since May 1, 1973 (almost 42 years). We courted for one year before we married.
3 – We have no children. But our family consists of two horses, one pony, one cat, and Stryker the German Shepherd.
4 – Anne and I sold our Horse Farm several months ago. The horses are boarded with close friends not far from where we had the farm. They will always be our horses.
5 – Neither Anne, nor I, are retired. We are both working, and intend to do so for a very long time.
6 – We now live for 6-months in Texas (Austin) during the winter, and 6 Months in Ontario (Canada) during the summer.
7 – YES . . . I READ ALL THE COMMENTS AND MOST OF THE EMAILS.
The question really focuses on several points:
1 – Prepare for a society that has run out of money.
2 – Prepare for not having enough money to make it through till death.
3 – Prepare for a Social Revolution.
I DON’T HAVE THE ANSWER FOR YOU.
BUT FOR ANNE AND MYSELF . . . we decided to really DOWNSIZE and make a wholesale LIFE CHANGE, without changing our quality of life. We made LIVING much more affordable with less “clutter”. AND WE MADE SOME SACRIFICES in the short term, to help guarantee a better life in the long term.
It’s too early for me to tell you whether or not we made the RIGHT choices . . . but so far so good.
BACK TO FERGUSON MISSOURI . . . YET AGAIN:
This issues and events TRANSCEND Ferguson Missouri, which is not about what happened between a White Cop and Black Teenage THUG, who got what he deserved.
If Michael Brown was a White teenage THUG, doing exactly what Brown did, first at the Convenience Store, and then with the Cop, he too would have deserved the same outcome.
Had the Convenience Store Clerk taken out a gun and shot Michael Brown DEAD on the spot, the moment this THUG stole and made a move against him, I WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE WITH THAT.
Stealing and strong-arming someone doesn’t JUST HAPPEN. It is a deliberate action that crosses the line of civility and the RULE OF LAW, which we all must follow.
I HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE OR SYMPATHY for the likes of Michael Brown, not because he was BLACK, but because he was a THUG. And the more Michael Browns who are shot, regardless of their skin color, while in the ACT of stealing, threatening, or doing any harm to someone for no reason whatsoever through THUGGERY . . . the better it will be for all of us.
NOT ONLY WAS MICHAEL BROWN NOT A CIVIL RIGHTS ICON . . . he was a DISGRACE to the number of people who sacrificed so much . . . so that all men and women could be measured NOT BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN, BUT BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER.
Men and women, of all ages, and from all stations in life . . . pay enormous DISRESPECT to the GREATNESS of Martin Luther King, and the sacrifices of TENS of THOUSANDS who marched for RACIAL EQUALITY, including THOUSANDS of WHITE Folk, many of whom were arrested, beaten . . . and some who were murdered while fighting for the EQUAL RIGHTS of Black People – when they pay honor to a THUG like Michael Brown . . . as if he was somehow a Civil Rights Icon.
In recent polls . . . as many as 70% of the American Black Population, believe that White Cops Treat Black People, specifically Black men, differently and unfairly than how they treat White People.
And why shouldn’t they believe this . . . when their LEADERS – from the President on down, tell them that this is in FACT true? And when EXTREME Leftist organizations like the ACLU, NAACP and the Mainstream Media reinforce this belief, as if it is a religious mantra?
PROPAGANDA IS THE TOOL OF EVIL . . . just as the Jews knew, who died a horrible death in the Holocaust, and the other TENS of MILLIONS of men, women and children who also perished as a result, of how the Nazis perfected the BIG LIE to a whole new level.
BLACK LIBERATIONISTS will point to the number of Blacks who are in prison, compared to the number of Whites who are also in prison, on a per-capita basis, as PROOF of RACIAL INEQUALITY.
But they won’t consider perhaps . . . that there are MORE Blacks in jail than Whites on a per-capita basis, because on a per-capita basis, MORE Blacks commit crimes.
BLACK PROPAGANDISTS LOVE STATISTICS . . . but will not mention the hugely disproportionate number of Blacks to Whites who are ILLITERATE, who can’t properly speak English, who drop out of High School, who lead the way in teenage Pregnancies, who have multiple Babies with different men, FEW of whom provide any form of fathering or financial help, or that the rate of unemployed Black People . . . is in many areas as high as 25% and MORE.
AND THEN FOR THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM . . . It would be no surprise to me, if more Black Americans are MURDERED by other Black Americans in a week, than are killed by White Police Officers in the line of duty over a space of a year.
Let’s forget about statistics and all the HE SAID – SHE SAID “STUFF” . . . and just focus on something that CANNOT be debated.
Every time the Black Community is GINNED-UP by their leaders and the LEFTIST Media, whether for something REAL or imagined . . . Blacks themselves BURN DOWN their own communities. Every time there is a horrific event like Hurricane Katrina, Blacks themselves loot, rape and murder.
And in the aftermath of each HORROR story, NO ONE in the BLACK COMMUNITY is held to account. WHY?
Either the Black Community will take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for their own FAILURES, or they will fall even DEEPER into the ABYSS of despair, which their own LEADERS HAVE DUG FOR THEM.
As I’ve written several times in the past . . . I really see NO-WAY-OUT for America’s current generation of Black People, who believe the world owes them something, or that the rules DON’T apply to them.
And like all things coming in the impending Social Revolution . . . things will get worse before they get better. But over time . . . and after a great deal of pain, things will get better.
JUST BE PREPARED TO WEATHER THE STORM.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
