Frightening prediction

"Anyone that thinks that this is going to be a market that's going to grow in strength, deserves what they get."

Those are the scary words of Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute. TRI isn't your fly-by-night superficial prognosticator. On the contrary, Celente is a highly-respected predictor of national and international financial and societal trends.

And he says we're headed for deep doo-doo.

So I'm back to nagging for people to get their ducks in order. Preparedness, folks. Food, water, nonhybrid garden seeds, whatever useful things you can afford - the time to acquire critical items is now. Celente is predicuting a "meltdown" in 2010. Another term used in this interview is "global implosion."

I don't know about you, but those are words that fill me with terror.


  1. I would love to see an expanded post on your suggestions for being prepared. :)


  2. He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God, in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver me from the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but it shall not come nigh thee.

    Psalm 91

  3. Robin, I'm working on a post (or a series of posts) on preparedness. You're not the only one who is wondering.

    Stand by.

  4. I'm just praying that we get some warning, like of a couple of days, so we can clean out the bank account, and blow the rest of what we have on more supplies. We probably have enough food to last 3-5 years (5 if we are really careful), but I'd like to pick up a bit more in the way of odds and ends that we haven't gotten yet.

    And bees...I want a hive or two.

    And can you really have enough in the way of variety for seeds? LOL Every time I open a Richter's catalog, I get into trouble.
