 Episode-951- AOCS in Washington and the Future of Private Monetary Systems | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:54

Rob Gray to Congress “Leave Us Alone!” Last night I posted that my good friend Rob Gray would today be testifying before congress about “competing currencies” at the request of Representative Ron Paul.  Rob may have already completed his remarks, I really don’t know for sure as my provider doesn’t have CSPAN-3 and I was on the road at his appointed time so the internet feed does me no good. Today I want to read his speech to you and tell you my thoughts on how we the people can fix this problem with money, not inside the system, not even in opposition to the system but simply along side and out side of it. To me Rob’s message to the congress is the work of a true patriot and one that makes me proud to be living in a time such as today.  Not long ago such words would be ridiculed or ignored, today they still fall on many deaf ears but many are also now listening.  When I get a video or audio on Rob’s testimony you can bet I will be sharing it with you. Additionally today I will share with you my thoughts on how batter currencies can and likely will evolve over time.  I will even share with you how the concept could be used to create an effective and honest national currency.  Additional Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Copper Join Our Forum Harvest Eating – (sponsor of the day) Free State Project – (sponsor of the day) The AOCS Website AOCS on Facebook Rob’s Announcement and Text of his Speech Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-950- 8 More Unusual or Underated Crops for the Homestead | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:03:14

Mouse Melon – One of the Cool Plants We Discuss Today Sometimes you just get a bit tired of all the negative things going on out there.  Mid summer seems like some of the worst of those days, hot long days filled with news of encroachment on liberty, economic doom and more. For me gardening and planting along with planning for future planting and homesteading activities offers me solace.  It doesn’t fix the problems, as I said yesterday when I quoted Steven Covey, “While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions.”  Sadly we have many consequences to face but as Mr. Covey put it we do control our actions, NOW, today and tomorrow. In the garden we find both a positive action and emotional and I believe phyical therapy.  In fact I believe much or our nation can be healed with gardening and homesteading.  If you think I am over selling the power of growing food to heal, have a look at this recent article about putting gardens into our prisons. There is a power of anything that allows a person to really create something, it gives them something that is really theirs, something to value, something they want to keep and protect vs. yet another shiny thing to try to acquire.  This sums up much of what is wrong in America.  With this in mind I bring you today’s show, a simple break and a look at growing some things you may have never thought of before. Join Me Today As I Tell You About Some Underrated Crops Such As… Sorghum – (for grain and popping) Mouse Mellon – (actually a cucumber, sort of) Old Corn Varieties – (parching, four and flint) Tomatillo New Zealand Spinach Salsify / Scorzonera Hulless Pumpkins (Styrian and others) Asparagus Pea Additional Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Copper Join Our Forum ShelfReliance.com – (sponsor of the day) Silver and Gold Shop – (sponsor of the day) Seeds and Seed Sources Rox Orange Sorghum  Mennonite Sorghum Indian Red Popping Sorghum Tunisian Sorghum  White African Sorghum Mouse Melon (cucamelon) Rainbow Inca Corn “Giant Indian” Flint Corn Supai Red Parching Corn Mandan Red Flour Corn (good for parching too) Mandan Lavandar Corn (good for parching and flour) Posole Blue Corn Some Excellent Native Corns on this Page Teosinte – (wild corn) Tomatillo (Purple Keepers) Rare and Hard to find Tomatillos  New Zealand Spinach Scorzonera (Black Salsify) Mamoth Island Salsify (White Salsify) Triple Treat Hulless Pumpkins (NOTE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS) Stryian Hulless Pumpkin (the ones I am growing that seem immune to squash bugs for now at least) Khaki Hulless Pumpkin Asparagus Pea Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-945- Weeds that aren’t Weeds and Other Unusal Edibles | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:19:13

Nope it isn’t Lambsquarters it is Huauzontle (Wah-Zont-Lay) Recently I posted a photo on facebook included here in the show notes.  The photo is of a plant called huauzontle (pronounced wah-zont-lay), a relative of lambsquarters.  While only one person guessing the plant species got it right what actually surprised me was they crescendo of the use of the word “weed”. Sometimes I sit and wonder if tomatoes and peppers and lettuce just grew in large swaths on their own would we call them weed too?  For example this so called weed huauzontle has actually been cultivated for centuries and is currently “en vogue” with many Mexican gardeners in LA. I find it interesting that many of the plants I purposely plant in my garden like lambsquartes, huauzontle and purslane are classified as weeds by so many others.  Am I just so weirdo that likes “weeds” or is there something more to it?  Many of these plants are great eating, easy to cultivate and pack a great nutritional punch.  Many are also great for livestock, wildlife support, predator habitat and still others do all of the above.

 Episode-944- Phil Chandler “The Barefoot Beekeeper” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:00:45

Phil Chandler the Barefoot Bee Keeper Phil Chandler got his “wake-up call” in 1971 when he met Edward Goldsmith who was about to launch The Ecologist magazine.  Phil lived for several years in the 1970s a hut in the hills in northern England, learning to fend for himself by hunting, growing, learning about farming. Along the way he started own printing business, published local magazines, and later progressed to data processing when computers became available. He even taught IT for a while, then ran rehab project for people with disabilities, many ex-military. Phil heavily campaigned against GM crops in 1990s, during which time he came to realize the real importance of bees and other pollinators. It was at that time that he took up beekeeping in 2000.  His research on modern methods led him to conclude that things needed to change.  So he experimented with hives and settled on top bar hive.  A few years ago he wrote “The Barefoot Beekeeper”  which has now sold over 15,000 copies worldwide . Tim joins us today to discuss natural beekeeping for homesteaders and survivalists and answers questions like,  Why are bee so important?, What’s wrong with modern beekeeping? What needs to change with modern agriculture? What can the average non-beekeeper do to help the bees? and What is special about “natural beekeeping”?

 Episode-943- Tim Ammons of Oleo Acres Farm | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 0:54:10

Curing Meat the Old Fashioned Way at Oleo Acres Farm Tim Ammons runs Oleo Acres farm a self sustaining farm that teaches individuals the old fashioned way of being “Green”.  He joins us today to discuss self sustainable living and farming as a way to support family and community. On his 20 acre farm in Tennessee Tim still practices many techniques and skills that have largely been lost.  Such as the growing of 7 very old heirloom varieties of sorghum which are then converted into sorghum syrup using old methods.  At one time sorghum syrup was the most common sweetener in the US, Tim is still growing it and making it the old fashioned way. He is also a big time gardener with may tips and tricks developed over almost 40 years of gardening and farming.  He will teach us today about timing your plantings, companion and succession planting and even a great, simple and completely organic way to combat the dreaded squash bug, which is public garden enemy number one for much of the TSP audience.

 Episode-938- Understanding the Problems vs the Symptoms | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:00:42

Now This is a Problem Yesterday I included a response to a claim by a listener that Walmart was “destroying America”.  In doing so I didn’t claim Walmart was a fine company or that they should be supported. I simply pointed out that all the big businesses that compete with them did the same types of things.  That a boycott of Walmart would accomplish little and we could actually use large companies like Walmart more effectively to get rid of specific products like “pink slime”. Well, you guys say I have it wrong, really?  What do I have wrong?  My view is this is a deeper problem where a specific grudge and anger blind people to the truth.  Walmart isn’t the problem, it is but a symptom of the actual problem. Going to war with Walmart in the current system is like giving a headache patient an aspirin and thinking it will fix the problem.  It might feel better but the problem remains.  This isn’t just a corporate issue, it is a government one and a monetary one, in fact that is the entire point. When there is an illness if you are a good doctor the symptoms are used only to diagnose the illness and you correct the imbalance in the system that is the root cause.  The reality is if you only treat the symptom, the illness gets worse.  You can cut out a tumor yet a cancer patient will often still die. Join Me Today As I Discuss… What is a boycott and why they don’t work on large companies Why 20,000 backyard chickens is better then 45,000 people avoiding Walmart One time just so you get it, I DON’T THINK WALMART IS GOOD Why I always say Monsanto, Conagra and Bayer not just Monsanto Finding the real problem Step one – follow the money Step two – see step one Step three – understand individual behavior Step four – understand the total system not one component Step five – see step one What does work Focus on the positives Build and value community Reduce and eliminate debt Do business with the best company available Accept that the debt based system is going to fail Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Copper Join Our Forum Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
