 Episode-2663- Developing Your Personal Counter Economics Game Plan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:22:33

Two guys I really like (Vin Armani and Pete Quinones) have been trading some thoughts on counter economics recently.  Pete said something like, “Any strategy to defeat the expanding technocracy that does not include counter-economics should be rethought, or abandoned.” Which Vin responded to with, “A successful countereconomics strategy won’t defeat the expanding technocracy, but it will enable individuals to avoid the worst of its effects.” My response to Vin was, “Bingo! Agorism is not going to save the world, it is innate to the human condition. It is something you do, not something you create as a system. It already exists, everywhere all the time, you are part of it consciously or unconsciously. The choice is the key!” Pete also made the same comment on Facebook and it opened some good discussion there as well.  As I thought about today’s show I decided this was a great practical topic, if you come at it from a practical stand point. Join Me Today to Discuss… Let’s start with the evolution of an anarchist/libertarian/agorist/voluntarist What exactly is “counter economics” – short version all gray and black markets are counter economic markets The reality is counter economics are actually created by governments, they are an attempt to restore natural economics However, counter economics are still not 100% natural as they feed off of government stupidity Examples of counter economics at the home/individual level Anything you sell or trade and don’t pay tax on really Home made hooch (shine, mead, etc) Reloading ammo for “friends” Selling farmstead/homestead produce Selling prepared foods Selling livestock outside the system There are millions of examples Why this approach is powerful The tale of two neighbors and one agorist It is all based on your actions You can always win if you are a good designer The more government does the more profitable it becomes People will participate while swearing they disagree with the principle In the 80s we just called it “working under the table”, etc, everyone thought it was a great idea In the end you do what makes sense for you, when it makes sense for you, not because “I’m an agorist” This is the philosophy of America until the early 1900s and it persisted in decline even after that Why you may really need this philosophy soon   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Heart of Gold on SongFacts.com Heart of Gold – Neil Young   Sponsors of the Day Ready Made Resources Knife Kits   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2660- Why the Post CoVid “New Normal” may be a Lot Like the “Old Normal” | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:24

New normal is a phrase being tossed around a lot lately.  I find it usually used to get the sheep in line.  When the market crashed in 08, dolts like Susie Orman used it to explain to you why you should now work until you are 75 or 80 to retire.  Proving that she was totally useless to anyone who had not already figured it out. Today “new normal” seems designed to condition you to expect to be locked in your own home for at least a few years and that life has changed forever.  Never mind that humanity has survived the black death, small pox, etc. and always returned to “normal”, this time a virus with a real death rate of .1% is different, go to your stall sheep! Yet to me much of what people have called normal for a long time, doesn’t seem very, well, normal.  I grew up in the 80s but in rural PA the adults there had built their entire lives and culture on what was “normal” in the 30s-50s, so to me, that became more normal.  It is what America was like before “progress” and full urbanization and dependency.  It was about 4 generations ago.  Ever hear of the 4th turning?  It sure seems like the final turn of the cycle “crisis” is occurring right now. So when I say old normal in today’s show, I am not talking about yesterday, I am talking about yesteryear. Join Me today to Discuss… The short version of The Fourth Turning High Awakening Unraveling Crisis I say it is much more simple, everything is just a cycle, shit happens and we deal with it my turnings are Knowing Forgetting Compensating Dick Punch The other cycle to consider here Denial Anger Bargaining Depression Acceptance Individuals move at their own speed in both cycles vs. society as a whole, we are all microcosms of the whole What was “normal” for me growing up Taking care of older neighbors Kids were highly independent by say 10-11 years old Kids had jobs, most people had side hustles Nothing useful was thrown away People knew how to fix things Staying away from large crowded places Hunting and foraging for food Gardening Cooking your own food Making your own things The weakness of high density cities and settlements Always “import” economies Always subject to shortage Never self sufficient Always parasitic Easy to scare, control, manipulate Small geographies that control large geographies and hence become resented then rebelled against Subject to mass epidemics/pandemics with little recourse Produce excessive waste Large exporters of pollution Entire economies are 90% or more service based, they produce little to nothing The true oldest story known to man, the plight of the hill people vs. the flat landers We won’t all return to this “old normal” but many were, this just accelerated it, as it has accelerated many things “Trends are never total” The songs of the past are always released as new cover version by new artists, everything is indeed a cycle   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum TspAz.com Get the Book – The Fourth Turning Smoking in the Boys Room – Motley Crue   Sponsors of the Day Safecastle Royal The Berkey Guy   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2659- Insurance for your Home and Homestead | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:33:54

Michael Walsh is a long-time listener to the show and works as a farm insurance underwriter. He is not an agent and doesn’t have a policy to sell you. His goal today is to educate us on insurance for the home and homestead to make informed decisions.  He joins us today to discuss insurance for the home and homestead Essentially, many listeners to the show have designed a lifestyle in the gray areas. They kind-of farm; if they don’t it often looks like it. They probably run a business…. well maybe it’s just a hobby. Unfortunately, insurance is designed for black and white scenarios. I’d like to educate people on how to best cover those gray areas. Michael has experience with all types of insurance including life, health and disability and we discuss a bit of that.  However his real expertise and passion is property/casualty insurance. Insuring autos is simple, but properly insuring your home (especially a homestead) is unique so we take a deep dive into that today.  This is incredibly important as for most people it is their single largest at risk investment. Some topics we hit on today include… Homeowners vs Farmowners vs Commercial Policy The proper ways to insure your homestead tractor, livestock, feed, etc. Why your agent might not “get it” and how to deal with that Chargeable claims vs non-chargeable claims (which claims raise your rates) Extra/optional coverages to look up and which to avoid Do you have the right liability for what you’re doing   Finally I just want to point out that Michael is a salaried employee of an insurance company and he doesn’t have a particular company to recommend or anything to sell.  In fact in this interview he mentions one company only due to its association with the veteran community and never even says which company he works for.  This interview is a true community member just trying to help you understand how to mitigate the risks in your life.

 Episode-2658- House Hunting in a Buyers Market | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:34

I am gonna say it isn’t really a true buyer’s market right now, not based on the prices I see.  It is much more so than it was 18 months ago but super great deals are not everywhere, YET. Yet?  Yes yet!  They are coming and I am going to discuss why the market is always good for smart buyers all the time anyway.  That said, trust me, the recovery no matter how good it is, if it is the best one we can hope for will take time.  During that time people will need to sell, not want to, need to. When you get people that need to sell, (some always do) along with reluctant buyers (like during a recession no matter the cause) you get deals!  Additionally I have had a ton of home buying questions lately, many by email but also a lot on social media.  We have not covered this topic for a while so lets do that today. Join Me Today to Discuss… Finance options FHA VA Conventional Hybrids like 80/20 Let me be clear, don’t ever do an ARM loan, EVER!!!!!! The 1% Effect selling formula (houses that get top dollar) Using the reverse 1% effect as a buyer Identify the homes that Show 1% worse then most homes in the price window Find homes that are on the market for more than 90 days Find empty homes (already bought another or a failed flip) Be a smart and savvy negotiator Finding a home HOAs are the devil List your wants and rank them from 1-5 1 – I have to have it 2 – I really want it and likely won’t be totally happy without it right away 3 – I really want it, I don’t want to give it up, but I can do without it for a time 4 – I would like it, but I can live without it 5 – It would be nice, but I won’t really factor it into my decision for the right property As you find homes that don’t have what you want, rank them from 1-5 as well on the permanence scale 5 – There is no way I can ever have it in this home 4 – It is possible but very expensive or very difficult to do 3 – I can have this for a reasonable cost, at some point in time down the road 2 – I can have this for a reasonable cost, relatively quickly 1 – I can have this with simple sweat equity, it will just take work Making your decision on which house to make an offer on Communication with buyers and doing the agents work for them, you likely have to, most are morons Spirko’s 6 Laws of Buying a property Rule One – Never overpay for a property Rule Two – Never get emotionally invested in a property Rule Three – Never overpay for a property Rule Four – Be willing to walk away from any deal Rule Five – Never overpay for a property Rule Six – Always buy with thoughts about an exit strategy There is no magic, but there is being smart and 1% smarter then average is enough on either side of the deal They key is a clear but reasonable vision of what a property can be, vs. what it currently is   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Carry on My Wayward Son – Anthrax Cover   Sponsors of the Day Butcher Box Backwoods Home   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2655- What I Think about CoVid at this Point in the Game | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:32:25

I have made spot on calls about CoVid and frankly I blew a big one.  It was of course how draconian the government response to it would become.  While the government is doing exactly what I said they would do in a pandemic almost a decade ago, the current virus is not something that warrants such a response. That was my opinion early on and it is now my opinion at the current time. I remained open to being wrong though.  The early death rates looked horrifying, like really bad.  The models were even worse.  It seemed without lock downs that 2 million may be more, may be twice as many could die in the US from this virus.  I accepted the reality, we need to do this, we need to sacrifice, we needed to get though it.  Yet the nagging feeling that none of this made any real scientific sense would NOT go away. Asymptomatic spread especially at the claimed rate of 2.3 made zero sense.  Claiming that we had any idea how many infections there really were, made no sense.  The claim it came from eating bats sold at a wet market where no bats are sold, made no sense.  Lots of other things in the official narrative made no sense. Equally some of the total conspiracy theory shit also made no sense.  The claim there is no CoVid, made zero sense.  I have two friends that are ICU doctors treating CoVid patients who were telling me what they were seeing.  This is a real virus, it does exist and it does hit some very, very hard.  The claim that it comes from 5G is just idiotic and requires a total ignorance of the frequencies that 5G runs at to believe.  Let me just say if you think 5G causes CoVid you better stay away from sunlight. What I have come to realize as is so often the case is the truth seems to lie in the middle.  Today we know so much more then we knew 6 weeks ago.   We know that we were wrong about so much yet we continue to make decisions based on beliefs now proven false.  We ignore treatments that work.  We have studies being rigged by using a valid treatment the wrong way at the wrong stage of the disease.  We have a claim that a drug works that has failed to reduce fatalities. We have people screaming to stay home to save lives but the largest increase in new cases is among those staying home.  We have a death rate in New York City that is high based on a single known bad decision and the people that did it won’t admit it and cling to policies that are now proven to be a total failure.  On top of it all we have a move to silence and even destroy any medical or scientific professional that speaks against the official and openly flawed narrative.  In fact even those who simply ask intelligent questions are attacked, silenced and have the shit of the of the sheepmonkies hurled at them. What I think about CoVid goes back to a prior quote of the day, “Three things can not be hidden for long.  The sun, the moon and the truth.” ~ Buddha Join Me Today to Discuss… My response to those who say the Bakersfield Doctors objection are based on flawed statistics and bad math (link) My thoughts on the intentionally flawed studies on Hydroxycholorquine and what doctors using it properly say about it The insanity that a 70 year old drug is dangerous but a vaccine that does not even exist yet is supposed to be safe Why Tony Fauci is the absolute text book example of what rational people are talking about when they say “the deep state” Why the Swedish model works yet more, the one mistake they made, admitted to and what happens when you adjust for it – (link) How the NY Governor made the same mistake, still did lock downs but fails to admit the mistake (link) Why my formula of Quercetin, Green Tea and Zinc is likely the single best thing you can do for yourself as a prevention tool Why I have a huge problem with the silencing of people on social media, even those that I agree are lunatics like David Icke A video you should listen to by a Doctor who used to work for Tony Fauci – (link) Corona [...]

 Episode-2654- Benjamin Page on Our Connection to Soil | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:43:19

Ben is a chiropractic physician that was on the show on episode 2033. He is focused on the human being as a whole and the ecosystem of Planet Earth and how working together is the only viable way to not only survive but to thrive. Ben started listening to the survival podcast in July 2008 while going to chiropractic college in Davenport, Iowa. He lived 5 miles from college rode his bike to collage. It took him depending on the season between 15 and 45 minutes to get to college. He used that time to listen to the survival podcast and learn about modern survivalism and now considers himself to be a modern survivalist.. Ben joins us today to discuss why he feels that how the interaction between us and the soil is the only way we can survive.

 Episode-2653- Developing Your Personal Recovery Plan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:35

CoVid is not over, the immediate infections will continue for a time, while the total lock downs are an over reaction, the threat is real, especially for those in high risk groups.  While I don’t think there will be a “second wave” worse than the first wave, some up tick after lifting lock downs will likely occur.  A return in fall is likely, again the entire doomsday worse than ever nonsense should stop, but some return is also possible. Worse we now know what government will do.  We all need to be prepping right now for our own personal recovery plans.  These plans need to be multi dimensional with multiple redundancies.  They need to include plans for a fast recovery, a longer protracted recovery and a heavily interrupted recovery all in one.  You need to prepare for being a person who gets back to normal fast or one that never does based on the common definition of “normal”.  There is a lot to this, and if one thing has become clear in the past two months, I really hope it is this.  Do not depend on government to take care of you or see to your needs. Join Me Today to Discuss… The three scenarios everyone sees as possible for the virus itself Total ebbing of the virus, no significant bounce back immediately or in the fall/winter An immediate spike in cases, hospitalizations and deaths upon reopening A true ebbing of the virus, not much rebound in summer but a big return in fall/winter Scenarios I find more likely The virus will almost disappear in some areas and continue to be a problem in others Sporadic clusters leading to incompetent and massive government over reactions in many regions While some bounce back occurs it will be mitigated by new treatments, significant immunity in the population, government still over reacts in many regions (my most likely pick) Economic recovery scenarios people are talking about A new “great depression” – I say only if this lock down lunacy continues A rapid and sharp economic recovery they call it V shaped A long slow protracted recovery, that is multi W shaped A long recession, something more akin to 08-09 but lasting longer My most likely views for what we face Major hiccups in the food supply chain, but not true shortages in the US Rapid increase of economic flux Education moves more online, more home school, etc More families move to making one stable income work (side hustles for the other half) Rapid uptick in the automation curve already coming Some jobs that have been eliminated never come back Massive buying out of failed businesses Massive increase in the credit market (commercial/consumer/everything) Fairly rapid Wall Street Recovery, much slower for main street Faster shift to solar and other alternative energy technologies What you need to do, what you need to ask yourself How far did this set me back and in what ways How fast can I get out of any and all consumer debt Did I skate though this, but am I still at risk What did this show me as to how I really want to live my life How prepared am I for this to happen again, even if it is not “this” What parts of my life are most at risk from this type of shut down What have I learned about my state and other states If you have children what have you learned about home based education What skills do I have, what skills do I lack What opportunities were revealed by this crisis What opportunities are likely to last if this crisis continues or ends Now like I say, write your own plan, what you do matters, especially now   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com My Hero – Foo Fighters   Sponsors of the Day Western Botanicals Bulk Ammo   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2652- Backyard Ponds for Fish, Fun, Food and Frogs | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:02:07

This year I think I have had more questions about my Miyagi Ponds (wood framed ponds made with a drop in liner) then I have in all years combined since installing my first one 4 years ago.  I don’t know if more people are watching “the YouTube” now due to CoVid or what, but I realized it has been a while since we discussed this topic. I was in fact going to discuss some of it on the feedback show Thursday but we ran out of time, I also realized it really does not fit well in a 10 minute variety show segment.  So today we are gonna tackle it head on. For today’s discussion I am talking about “ponds” not aquaponics though you can combine the two and I will mention that.  I am also talking about “garden ponds” vs. bigger more conventional ponds ranging from say a tenth of an acre up to about an acre.  While I am not sure of any official size division I consider something an acre or larger a lake. Specifically I want to run with for our discussion today we are talking say 100-5000 gallons in range.  Ponds of this size can go in almost any back yard, they can often be made portable if you move with the use of things like stock tanks and yet they are big enough to support biodiversity.  They are also manageable to maintain with roof rain catch, rain water or even de-chlorinated tap water if need be. Join Me Today to Discuss… Why you’d want a garden pond anyway Beauty Habitat Fish (food or aesthetics) Reserve water Aquatic plants (edible, profitable or otherwise) For an aquaponics component Ideas for Ponds of various sizes Stock tanks (plastic or galvanized) 100 – 800ish gallons Wood frame ponds 500 – 2500ish gallons Concrete poured ponds – limited by budget and skill only Spill trays – the one I am working with is 250 gallons Preformed pond shells Lined in ground ponds – bentonite or pond liners Developing biology that supports fish and other life In my opinion you need a pump, two is better Move water from one end to the other, to all four corners, etc. Give ponds time to develop biology (nitrate – nitrite cycle) before stocking to capacity Keep water foul out of ponds of this size, always Dogs will f-up a pond of this size if you let them, sometimes, bet they will though Create hides, shelves, entry and exit points, a much habitat as you can A dedicated fish kindergarten is even better I love surface vegetation, but it comes with some issues Some things I have learned Have a back up power plan Never over feed, if you do and get away with it, skip a few days Valves for flow control work, they also by their very nature clog, clogs can kill Float valves save lives, fish lives that is If you build it they will come (life forms of all kinds) Stocking the pond Minnows and forage fish first (fatheds, rosy reds, white clouds, mosquito fish) Create hides that are specific to minnows and fry Native fish are best if you have access to them Sunfish (perch, brim, bluegills, sunnies, etc.) Predators like bass are cool, but limiting and a pain in the ass Channel Cats are a great ROI food wise Bullheads do well but need space or they eat each other Goldfish may be the perfect cycling fish, most don’t die though Koi are beautiful but make a lot of waste and get huge Shubunkin Gold Fish give the beauty of koi, smaller, less waste and are fun as hell Cherry Shrimp actually have done great over the winter in my climate, but everything eats them Crawfish should be doable If you want shellfish river prawns are very doable but need lots of hiding spaces and cut fish in half, really Final thoughts It is addictive The biodiversity is amazing It can be a bit expensive but worth it to me They do need on going attention In cold climates go deep or have a heating solution Start small, you can always sell off a stock tank, or turn a box frame into a garden Keep critters you don’t want in your pond, out of your pond Think about a[...]
