2012 is here!

Well, it's here.  2012.  What the Mayans (and other ancient cultures) have been warning us about. Will anything come from all of those predictions?  I am assuming not. 

Now with that said, I think that that over the last 30 - 50 years, we have created our own "2012" here in the US of A.  Kicking the can down the road, saying that we are cutting expenses with "future savings".  That's like me telling my wife that I cut $100,000 out of our expenses for this year because I won't buy a Maserati that I wasn't planning on buying anyway.

Oh well, something inside me feels that this will be the year.  I hope and pray not.  I want all the protests to go away, I wish that all of the regulations and such that are keeping folks from good paying jobs would be removed and I wish that this time next year we can all look back and laugh. 


  1. Happy New Year Watchful! I hope along with you that we will be laughing about 2012 like we laughed about Y2K! But if not, at least we are prepared! Keep up the good work.

  2. I'm in agreement with you. 2012 seems like "the year". thankfully I got my wife on board with the preparedness program several years ago. I don't want it to happen but sometimes I think it NEEDS to happen. So, I keep adding beans and bullets and of course light and all the other things that we will need on the event of a collapse. By the way , nice site!
