Memorial Day 2014

There will be no new material posted on Survival And Prosperity today in honor of the gallant men and women that served, fought, and died in defense of this amazing country of ours.

It is because of their sacrifice that I am able to type this today and share it with all of you.

And for that, among other freedoms they helped preserve, I am eternally gratefully.

New posts will appear tomorrow. Enjoy the remainder of this long holiday weekend.

Some Housekeeping

I apologize for not getting new material out on Survival And Prosperity since the end of last week. Spring has always been busy for me to begin with, but the last couple of days have been especially hectic. Consequently, I have some major catching up to do on both my blogs this week.

Adding to the madness is the fact that the company that hosts my blogs/website is scheduling an update tonight between 9 PM and 5 AM (Central Time)- at which point my sites could see an outage lasting up to a projected 30 minutes.

Thank you for your patience. I hope everyone is having a terrific spring.

‘Crash Prophets’ Page Streamlined, Updated

Just wanted to let you know that this weekend I streamlined and updated Survival And Prosperity’s “Crash Prophets” page.

In case you’ve never visited it, “Crash Prophets” is:

Where the latest investment activities/recommendations of the “Crash Prophets”- Dr. Marc Faber, Jeremy Grantham, Jim Rogers, and Peter Schiff- that can be found through freely-available sources on the Internet are compiled.

Hope readers are finding this page informative.

Casting Call For FOX TV Show ‘UTOPIA’

Speaking of prepper/survivalist-themed reality televison, I was recently contacted by two casting producers about two new shows they’re casting for.

First up is the upcoming FOX TV show UTOPIA. From the casting notice:

A NEW WORLD IS COMING
WILL YOU BE CHOSEN TO HELP CREATE IT?
UTOPIA IS NOW CASTING! – FOX TV

THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME TO CREATE YOUR OWN DESTINY!

Have you ever wanted to create a new society from scratch or participate in trying to form your ideal world?
FOX’s new unscripted social experiment series “UTOPIA” is searching for candidates to create a whole new world.
Nationwide casting is now underway and we’re seeking motivated “pioneer types” who have the ideas, skill sand determination to create and run an ideal society.

IF YOU’RE READY FOR AN EXCITING LIFE CHANGE, HERE IS YOUR CHANCE!

CALLING ALL TYPES!

Single, Married, Couples, Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Doctors, Contractors, Cooks, Veterans, Farmers, Law Enforcement, Welders, Construction Workers, Electricians, Plumbers, Eco Scientists, Mechanics, Architects, Inventors, Nurses, Veterinarians, Hairdressers, Tattoo Artists, Psychics, Bohemians, Vegans, Philanthropists, Salesmen or Unemployed!

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU DO, IF YOU ARE READY TO BE A PIONEER, UTOPIA MAY BE LOOKING FOR YOU!

“UTOPIA” follows 15 inhabitants as they leave their everyday lives to move to an isolated and undeveloped location and challenges them to create their own world. The series offers people from across America the chance to be part of a groundbreaking social experiment – the pioneers will make every decision about how they will live, work and what the rules and laws of “UTOPIA” will be.

CASTING is searching for candidates, “21 and over” who are passionate, great at what they do, and also have the problem solving skills needed for starting up a new society.
If you think you have what is takes to create Utopia, then email: CastingUtopia (AT) gmail (DOT) com
Include your name, age, contact info, where you live, city/state, occupation, interesting info about yourself, and why you would be great for the show!

As soon as I receive a casting notice for that other project, I’ll put that up on the blog too.

Milestone: Survival And Prosperity Reaches 2,000 Posts

Yesterday was a milestone for Survival And Prosperity:

2,000 posts have now been published on the blog

Not bad considering the weblog was started a little less than three-and-a-half years ago.

My previous flagship blog, Boom2Bust.com, “The Most Hated Blog On Wall Street,” only reached around 1,500 posts.

I think a little celebration is called for, don’t you?

There’s lots more blogging to be done. Washington and the Fed has managed to “kick the can down the road” this far, and while the economic picture might look rosy to many for a bit longer, I’m still not deviating from that prediction I made back on Memorial Day Weekend 2007 about a U.S. financial crash.

In fact, I believe we’ve already started into the descent. And gradually, the U.S. economy and larger financial system that is weighed down by tremendous debt and steered by greed, arrogance, and incompetence will eventually crash hard.

That being said, America has been here before (Great Depression). And I do see the country getting back on firm economic ground again. But only after the excesses off a multi-decade debt binge are effectively purged.

No “doomsday,” but definitely a “financial reckoning day.”

In the meantime, it’s probably wise to take advantage of the present situation to prepare for what I see is in store for the country down the road. Whether that means finding a line of work that’s more stable or acquiring more income to preserve one’s standard of living in hard times, it’s something one may want to look into and take action on while it’s still possible to do so. Of course, individual circumstances vary. Still, improving one’s self-sufficiency- even incrementally- can make a big difference in an emergency or major crisis. It’s something our predecessors in this great nation of ours understood and practiced, but unfortunately has fallen by the wayside in modern times.

Survival and prosperity. That’s what this blog continues to be all about.

Back In The Saddle

Regular readers of Survival And Prosperity may have noticed the lack of blogging activity since early February. While I took care of a number of personal matters during this time away from the blog, I was also hard at work on two new projects.

On February 15, I launched the financial website Offshore Private Vaults, “Overseas Asset Protection Outside the Banking System.” It contains information about private vaults located outside the United States offering safe deposit boxes (at a minimum). The site looks at why overseas non-bank vaults are considered effective asset protection tools, and provides a regularly-updated list of these storage facilities worldwide.

On February 24, I also rolled out the financial blog Offshore Safe Deposit Boxes, “Asset Protection Outside the United States.” It focuses on safe deposit boxes located outside the United States and looks at why offshore safe deposit boxes are considered effective asset protection tools.

I’m now back in the saddle again with Survival And Prosperity. New material will be published today and tomorrow with a full week (Sunday through Thursday) of posts planned starting Sunday, March 2.

Thanks for your continued readership and support,

Friday Blogging

Because I was taking care of some other tasks, I didn’t get the chance to blog as much as I wanted to today.

Therefore, I’ll be uploading some new material Friday before calling it a week, including an “In Print” book review post and the “Resource Of The Week.”

Lots to talk about, with a “Resource Of The Week” to wrap it all up.

Some Blog-Related Matters

Sorry for not posting any new material Tuesday. The fact is, I was busy contemplating some matters related to Survival And Prosperity. Regular readers may have noticed that blogging has been somewhat sporadic, current events-oriented, and Chicago, Illinois-centric for some time now. This was not my intention. While it would be easy to blame my newly-found homeowner responsibilities, a myriad of other projects/tasks, and those unforeseen challenges/setbacks that have a tendency to pop up in life when we least expect (let alone need) them, at the end of the day the responsibility for publishing a decent weblog that provides useful information related to “protecting and growing self and wealth in these uncertain times” rests squarely on my shoulders.

And lately, I’ve “dropped the ball.”

Going forward, look for blog posts not only being published Sunday through Thursday again, but bright and early in the morning. While I’ll still discuss current events, new posts will be released from the “Project Prepper” series along with other financial and personal safety information that readers might be able to utilize. I’ll also be reintroducing the different series of posts special to this blog. As such, a “normal” week of blogging should look like this:

Sunday- “Quote For The Week,” “crash prophet” activity, other posts
Monday- “Project Prepper,” other posts
Tuesday- Media review (movies, TV shows, books), other posts
Wednesday- “Signs Of The Time,” other posts
Thursday- “Resource Of The Week,” other posts

As for those Chicagoland-centric posts? Well, those will continue, although they won’t make up the bulk of what’s published. On a side note, there’s just been so much bad news coming out of the “Windy City” and “Land of Lincoln” lately I’ve been compelled to write about it in hopes local readers understand what’s at stake. A lot, if you ask me. For this audience, I’ll be exploring the different avenues available to them for making the best of their unfortunate situation that’s been decades in the making.

One last thing. I’ve received a ton of messages via the blog contact page. For some reason, viewers of the various prepper/survival-themed shows on TV these days are messaging me thinking I’m either the person they saw on TV or have their contact info. The contact info requests I get, but the other? Anyway, I’ll be working hard whittling away at my inbox. Your patience is really appreciated.

That’s it for now. As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions related to Survival And Prosperity.
