Outrage Exhaustion

Maybe it is just me, but I am so sick of the news coming out of everywhere that I am just ready to throw up my hands and go water the garden. I now am officially diagnosed with outrage exhaustion.
I guess that it being sunny and nice and the garden does need work has something to do with it.

But mostly it is the insipidity and duplicity that come out of the "official" and mainstream channels that is driving me to distraction.
There is also the energy draining angst of the blogosphere. We have gotten so used to seeing the hidden motives of the world around us that it is difficult to bring up the possibility that things are maybe going to be something other than the Götterdämmerung we have been so carefully crafting in our group psyche.

I am going to keep the process going, but I think that I going to spend a bit more time on the day to day parts. I will leave to the Norns the task of weaving the rope of destiny.

That's a good way of putting it.... Maybe we do wind ourselves up a bit tight, but the government and media do their part to give us a few twists.... That's why I'm at the "f*ck it" stage. All I can do is what I can do for myself and my family, which I'm damn sure gonna do, and be ready for if and when. Though I will continue to lean toward "when".... ; )

I think at some point, we all sort of hit that wall...which may just be why we are being overloaded with so many disasters on the news to begin with. Information overload can be distracting, to say the least!

The case for doubt happens upon a prepper every now and then. I had to go through it. But I always came back to the facts and the facts are that people like Peter Schiff, Gerald Celente, Ron Paul, and a host of others say the system is going down. These men are not fools and don't want to lose their positions in life. We have facts and witnesses to back up our views. Stay the course.
