Ron Paul, Soup and PMs

Random items -

I'm not sure of the date of this video, but his premise is pretty hard to argue with. I'm not in full agreement with all of his solutions, but I think we need to move in this general direction. Quickly.

Since we all know our government will NOT move in the right direction, all we can do is prep.  And prep some more.

Just Add Water Recipe - Creamy Cheddar Potato Soup

It is brain-dead easy and extremely good. Seriously good.

Makes 4 cups

1/2 C dehydrated potatoes (I use hash brown style)
1/2 C instant potato flakes
3 tsp chicken soup base (or 3 chicken bullion cubes)
2 tblspn dehydrated onion flakes
1 tsp dehydrated parsley flakes
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
3 tblspn cheese powder
1 C powdered milk

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add all ingredients, stirring very well.

Reduce heat to low, cover pot and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir pot every 5 minutes to keep soup smooth.


This is one of the Just Add Water recipes I have made up and vacuum sealed for our BOBs/GHBs. Great for camping trips as well.


A rather lengthy, but interesting look at what is going on with the precious metals markets. There is some concern in many circles, that the actual amount of physical gold that is supposed to be available, isn't being reported correctly.

There have been a number of futures contracts - that were supposed to be filled by taking delivery of gold - that have been fulfilled by cash and a BIG bonus instead. The physical gold just wasn't available.

This is now beginning to cause a rift between the spot price of gold, and the price you pay for physical gold.

Take a look here. It's interesting, a bit over-the-top in its presentation, and more than a bit disturbing. (H/T John).
