Here while back I spoke of us going back to basics and in time.We are stepping back and getting a bigger picture of where we are and where we are going.We are growing our own food ,living a simplier life,cutting our bills altogether,learning the old ways of DIY products.Entertaining ourselves outdoors instead of being glued to the T.V. or computer.Educating ourselves on history and how our ancestors did things.We used to wonder how they did it especially during hard times.Now we know.
Now the flip side and I’m not really saying anything good here.Remember that.We are going to get nailed sooner or later for this,if it hasn’t already started and in some cases it has.I’m talking about some of the new laws for homesteaders and gardeners and farms.They want us to depend on their poisoned foods because if they don’t poison the food we wouldn’t have the diseases we have now and we wouldn’t have to go see an expensive doctor and we wouldn’t have to have insurance.A.K.A. no money for them.I have found out that the good food will cost you.Go to the supermarket sometimes and price the organic stuff.You got a set amount on you to spend for food and you see some really tasty stuff in the organic section but you also see the prices.What you going to do?Most people go directly to the food that has been sprayed and buy it.Why is that?PRICE.
I have always thought that this was nuts.It’s a problem.So more people are combating it by growing their own.Our society lives on the standard of convience.It is to most when you can just go in and buy it instead of waiting for it to grow.Let me ask you this,what is the price of your health?How long you want to live?
So,I go to the local farmers market here while back,just a small place and I am looking at the produce they have and I was stunned at what some people wanted for their stuff.I know from experience that it takes money to grow these things but I also know they have alot in their gardens and I personally think they are just trying to over price stuff.The mentality-if you want home grown then you will have to pay for it.I can not tell you how many times I have given food away without one thought of charging anyone nor expecting anything in return.I also know these people grow this stuff to make ends meet but geesh don’t put such a high price that is outrageous.
Here some theories I believe in-
If we eat healthier,less trips to the doctor,less money in their pockets.
If we grow our own means less trips in a vehicle means using less gas to get there.
We grow our own also means less taxes the states get,that will become a major issue I believe.
The more self suffienct we are as in not using electric,water,gas(heating and cooking)then these big companies lose money.Look at what happened to the major phone companies when we started using cell phones.
People are turning off their TVs and computers and not having anything to do with these companies.They are turning off their lights and going to solar panels,turning off their water and collecting it from rain or wells.Heating and cooking is coming from wood burning stoves and propane.See a trend here?Guess what now they are catching on and saying,you have a wood burning stove?,not,you have to have an EPA standard one that burns less emissions and you have to dismantled your old one completely,yeah look it up.You can’t sell produce from your garden unless you file this paperwork “just in case someone gets sick from eating it”.They will know who sold it.Some places you are not really suppose to give food to friends and relatives.Right now propane is very high and most people use their stoves for heating or cooking.They have it like that you know.Water OMG please,some states won’t let you gather rain water because it DON”T BELONG TO YOU!How petty is that.Yeah we are in for a rude awakening.Makes you wonder when they come knocking on YOUR door and ask to see your water well or garden and try to fine you for what you have.
Basically the government needs you broke to depend on them but when everything is said and done who’s ass you think they are going to cover when a major disaster hits,YEP their own.
Good for us for standing up for ourselves and being an AMERICAN!
