To be blunt, forthright and direct, I loathe the finance industry.

I loathe financial advisors, I loathe mortgage brokers, I loathe mutual fund managers, I loathe investment bankers, I loathe regular bankers, I loathe commercial lenders, I loathe certified financial advisors, and I loathe certified financial planners.  Nearly every person employed in the world’s financial industry I hold contempt for.  And the reason is very simple.

They are, for the most part, immoral human beings.

Be you an institutional investor, a pensioner looking at your retirement portfolio, or a young 20 something looking to open your first retirement account, a problem facing all investors globally is that nearly every investable asset class is overpriced.

Due to:

  • previous generations investing trillions of dollars into their pensions and retirement plans over the past four decades,
  • central banks across the globe tripling their respective money supplies,
  • as well as China’s economic success creating an investor class bidding up asset prices globally.

Through the years, I’ve noticed preppers tending to fall into one of two categories, when it comes to self-defense.

The first category is the survivalists who are all about guns and bullets. Their self-defense strategy is to outgun the other guys by having more firepower. The second is into other types of weapons. While they might not be against firearms in general, they don’t want to depend on them for their survival.

Probably the biggest legislative win for the American people in a long time was the tax reform bill recently passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump.

This completes another one of Trump’s campaign promises, as well as the promise of many Republican lawmakers. Yet not everyone is happy with the tax reform bill.

Actually, the people who are unhappy with it fall into one of two categories: those who have been lied to and those who are doing the lying. 

If you are planning to set up your cellar as a survival shelter or only using it for storage, then make sure it is as waterproof as possible.

Taking care of aging foundations, shifting land under the home, and getting rid of water build up can all be expensive. Water will always go to the lowest level, which means your below-ground basement will always be where it wants to go.

Before you commit to converting your cellar into a survival shelter, be sure you can keep out water and moisture. Here are 120 safe ways to do it!
