Episode-53- TSP Rewind – Getting Your Spouse On Board with Survival Planning

rewindToday is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.

Today’s episode was originally, Episode-69- Getting Your Spouse On Board with Survival Planning and was originally published on October 8th, 2008.

The following are the original show notes from that episode.

Today’s show was created by quite a few, “how do I get my spouse” (or girlfriend, boyfriend, fiance) on board with preparing and doing what needs to be done in order to live that better life? Honestly that question has been asked by almost as many women as men, hence if you are on either side of the equation then you are not alone. Rather then typical show notes I will simply provide my 21 rules discussed in today’s show and suggest that you not only use them in conversation but ask you spouse to take 40 minutes to listen to this episode and perhaps some others as well.

The 21 Rules of Getting a Spouse On Board with Survival Planning and Prepping are.

  1. Demand or insist upon nothing.
  2. Ask for help where you are weak and your partner is strong.
  3. Demonstrate a command of the facts and threats, don’t alarm but inform.
  4. Arrive at all decisions as a team, at least if it is in anyway possible.
  5. Don’t put your “pet items” at the top of any proposed priority.
  6. Explain that this is for the good of the family.
  7. Focus on saving money and elimination of debt as step one.
  8. Explain the investment value of food and saving money, leave bullets and band aids for later.
  9. Talk about a “better life style” for less cost and why you want that for both or you.
  10. Discuss the future and not waiting until you are 65-80 to really spend time together.
  11. Do not get over excited; don’t dump too much at one time.Start with a simple vision and a few small steps.
  12. Make the discussion about “us” not you, not them but truly both of us.
  13. Don’t expect a perfect result and a totally on board agreement.
  14. Do have a single small step to suggest and ask if you can do it together.
  15. Try to get your spouse to suggest a second small step and embrace it and do it with them.
  16. Work on creating a common vision of a truly happy and sustainable life.
  17. Don’t focus on what you don’t mean (cammo, militia, communes, etc.) just answer concerns that are offered.
  18. Be positive about the future for your family, compare prepping to life insurance.
  19. Ask “what would we do if” and listen to the answers you get and discuss them.
  20. Talk a little, get them talking and listen as if your life depended on hearing every word, because it does.
  21. Share my show with them along with this particular podcast.

Gaia Herbs Echinacea Goldenseal Propolis Throat Spray

Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.

Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is Gaia Herbs Echinacea Goldenseal Propolis Throat Spray.  I just used this product for the past week and I am more than a little impressed.

This spray is made of three main ingredients and all are immune boosting power houses.  Of course due to the dot gov I have to say the following.  First I am not a Doctor, I don’t even pretend to be one on TV, like say Dr. Oz does.  So anything I say in this review or at any time is only my personal opinion, not a prescription for the use of any products.  Any claims about what they do are based on credible sources with citations of said sources.  The claims are not my own.

DON’T YOU JUST LOVE THE GOVERNMENT’S CONCERN FOR YOU?

Anyway here are the three ingredients…

    • Echinacea – Has been shown in some studies to boost immune response, reduce the occurrence of the common cold and increase white blood cell count.  Source – The Lancet
      1
    • Goldenseal – Has been shown to have a number of immune enhancing effects in clinical studies. However, in relation to this product the most important component is likely that goldenseal contains, “phytochemical alkaloids that produce a powerful astringent effect on mucous membranes, reduce disease-causing inflammation and have antiseptic effects.”  Source – DrAxe.com
      7
    • Propolis – Propolis does has proven antibiotic and antiseptic properties and may also have antiviral and anti-inflammatory – Source DrWeil.com

I personally feel this product is best used as a preventative or at the very first signs of a head cold, throat problems etc.  My personal results were quite good, but my use was delayed far more than it should have been.  I had been dealing with symptoms for about four days before beginning using it, laryngitis as you know if you listen to the show had set in pretty hard, I was having trouble sleeping due to sinus drainage etc.

I had used a spray in the past that was mostly just echinacea which had worked well but I realized I was out of it and that it is no longer made.  So I found this option gave it a shot.  Echinacea is well known in the herbal world as an immune booster, as is goldenseal. Both are used often by herbalists and are well thought of.

What I really loved though was the addition of propolis, propolis is basically “bee glue”.  Bees make propolis to seal up any unwanted holes in their hives.  This is one reason it is an anti viral and anti biotic, it is simply evolution that bees came up with this as it helps protect their hives.

Here is what even WebMD has to say about propolis…

Propolis has a long history of medicinal use, dating back to 350 B.C., the time of Aristotle. Greeks have used propolis for abscesses; Assyrians have used it for healing wounds and tumors; and Egyptians have used it for mummification….

Propolis is used for canker sores and infections caused by bacteria (including tuberculosis), by viruses (including flu, H1N1 “swine” flu, and the common cold), by fungus, and by single-celled organisms called protozoans. Propolis is also used for cancer of the nose and throat; for boosting the immune system; and for treating gastrointestinal (GI) problems including Helicobacter pylori infection in peptic ulcer disease. Propolis is also used as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

In short if it is good enough for Aristotle I figure it is good enough for me.  Anyway my results again were quite good, I got my voice back sooner than expected.  The bottle advises three sprays to the back of the throat each hour when you have a cold or throat problems, that is what I did.

I tend to deal with a lot of cold issues this time of year, the combination of the changing seasons, travel, large events, etc. seems to be a common theme in such things.  I plan to use this 2-3 times a day while well though this season this year and see how it works.

It seems like a natural preparedness item as it will store well and is made of three well known immune supporting components.  What about the taste though?  Well let me relate a story, one time I cam in from working though I had not worked that hard.  I told the wife I think I need a shower and she said as follows, “well you don’t smell bad, but you don’t smell good either”.  That is a perfect description of the taste, “the taste isn’t bad, but it ain’t good either”.  It does have a bit of heat to it, so that might make it harder to get kids to use.  It goes away fast though.

The burn is likely because this product is a herbal tincture meaning it is a concentrated herbal formula using alcohol, about 60% alcohol in this instance balanced by water.  The amount in a few sprays is insignificant in alcohol’s effects on the body but I did want to let you know that it has alcohol in it since some of you refrain from any and all uses of said same. 

Anyway Gaia Herbs Echinacea Goldenseal Propolis Throat Spray has found a home in my herbal tool kit and my winter regime.  Consider adding it to your home this year.  I think this one is going to be on par with Dr. Christopher’s Tissue and Bone for happy stories from the audience.  Yes it seems to be that good.

Remember you can always find the TSP Amazon Item of the day by just going to TspAz.com and by shopping at TspAz.com anytime you shop online you help support TSP and the work we do here no matter what you buy.

On the Depth of Ignorance in Relation to Bitcoin

Recently a commenter on the blog here made a comment and asked some questions that showed a level of ignorance as to how bitcoin works that is typical in the space today.  However the claims were made by someone who claimed not only was Bitcoin a scam, but indeed he researched it so that is why he has drawn his conclusion.

He tossed in a bit of passive aggressive ad hominem “do you make money promoting bitcoin Jack” and iced the cake with claims that are so far from accurate at to defy belief if one is remotely informed as to how bitcoin works.  This is not to say that some alt coins and ICOs are not complete pump and dump scams, but this question and attack was specifically about bitcoin.

He then ended his claims with this, “I hope I will see an honest reply…no reply will be a confirmation to my message.”, smugness is one thing but smugness of the ignorant is a chance to educate those who wish to be educated.  So here is his original comment and my response.  The comment itself and my response can be viewed here.

I am happy to defend every claim I have made here, not to prove I am right but rather to educate which has been my mission at TSP since 2008.  I will conclude my intro with the reality that I rejected bitcoin myself for years, a costly mistake!  It made no sense, until I actually decided to truly attempt to understand it.  I can say this about BTCs creator, before he laid down one line of code, he perfectly understood how modern monetary creation and manipulation works.  BTC was a direct counterargument in code to it, and one that was very well done.

Note – My stern tone below is not a personal attack.  Please note the use of the word ignorance, not stupid or foolish.  Again I too rejected Bitcoin before actually taking the time to truly understand it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Questions ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hello Jack. I value your advice on many topics, such as shooting, preparedness, ducks, homesteading, etc.  However, can you clarify your support of Bitcoin by addressing a couple of questions?

1. Do you financially benefit from promoting Bitcoin/cryptocurrency?

2. How is Bitcoin better than any other fiat currency?

It is not backed by the full faith of the US government, for example. I have researched and even used Bitcoin, and I find it, in simple terms, to be a scam.

Why? It has no audit process, no way of keeping them honest, no trail and no verification procedures.

I hope I will see an honest reply…no reply will be a confirmation to my message.
Keep up the otherwise good work.

~ Thanks, Tim

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My Response ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Yes but I was a big supporter of BTC long before I ever made a dollar from it by promotion or ever planned to. Opportunities along the way arose and I accepted two good ones, that is all, this question is almost insulting by the fing way.

2. Everything you said here is either wrong or backwards.

“It is not backed by the full faith of the US government” – well no shit that is the point that it is not controlled by government. All the full faith and credit of our government has done to the dollar is devalue it by 98% in the last 100 years. Yay full faith and credit!

“I have researched and even used Bitcoin, and I find it, in simple terms, to be a scam.” – That demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of what bitcoin is and how it works. We will see that as we proceed with your next claim.

“It has no audit process, no way of keeping them honest, no trail and no verification procedures.” – And there you go! You know the big rallying cry of “audit the fed” that has been sounded and unanswered for 10 years now, it is US debt backed currency with no real rules, no means of audit and the creation of wealth though debt that is the scam not bitcoin. I don’t know what research you did but I hope you don’t also research like new cancer treatments or something because your research method is total shit. Sorry it just is.

First anyone at any time can audit the blockchain, it is public and fully disclosed. Every rule to how the blockchain and BTC work together is known publicly and changes are only made by consensus of the community in which chain they follow as BTC etc. The blockchain is in fact the ULTIMATE TRUTH TELLER, you can’t change it retroactively, it is, it says this happened. This transaction occurred at this time, it occurred between these addresses. This bitcoin now exists here and until transferred can’t exist anywhere else ever.

Unlike US government money which now has a M3 of about 13 Trillion (we think because there is no way to audit anything) BTC can’t be inflated, such a thing is impossible. There will only ever be 23 million bitcoins, it is in effect a cap and fractionalize currency. So it encourages saving, lowers costs and wages over time. It is not subject to government controls, they can try but they can’t do it. If you want to wire 5K to a nephiew in Japan tomorrow you don’t need permission of the state to do so. Neither of you even need a bank account for this to occur.

Your claim that there is “no way of keeping them honest” shows a depth of ignorance so deep you should not even be speaking about crypto currency at all. There is no “them” you use that pronoun so tell me who “they” are? If you want a they that is screwing the people with a scam, there is the “they” of the Federal Reserve and the “they” of the Fractional Reserve Banking System.

I am sorry but do you even know the current process of monetary creation that occurs in our banking system, how it works, do you? Do you comprehend that when a bank loans you say 200,000 dollars to buy a house that they don’t give you 200,000 dollars, that it is created by your promise to repay it out of thin air?

Bitcoin is the most publicly audible currency ever created. There have been advanced skilled hackers, haters, wanna be counterfeiters watching it and doing their best to tear it apart from day one and combined they have accomplished the square root of f-all. People have been making claims that BTC is a scam, just a fad, a bubble, etc for 7 years now, 7 years. Bitcoin came on the scene worth about $0.008 and rose to $0.08 in the first month, that was July 2010. That is forever ago in internet terms!

In April 2011 BTC achieved dollar parity and cries like yours rang out and the drum beat of “tulip mania” was worked up by those with no understanding of tulip mania or bitcoin or frankly money. Today BTC sits at 6500 dollars, it will go up and down sure that is the nature of the currency, but over time it has preformed exactly as designed. Oh and people that keep saying “tulip mania” should realize that “Tulip Mania” lasted about ONE YEAR.  If I want more tulip bulbs how do I get them? I shove one in the ground and get 10 next year by division. Dear God but the depth of ignorance in this analogy is amazing, and some very smart people continue to make it.

Again this statement “It has no audit process, no way of keeping them honest, no trail and no verification procedures.” demonstrates a level of ignorance as to how Bitcoin works that is staggering coming from one who says he “researched it”. What research did you even do? How can you claim that there is no auditing when the entire block chain can be audited, that we need to keep “them” honest when there is no them and that there is no verification process when the entire process of mining is verification and everything is written to an immutable public block chain that anyone can audit at any time?

So much for your smug attitude about confirmation of your message! Now tell me why is Debt Backed Currency superior to crypto currency? There are actually some ways that it is, for now, which is why the majority of my wealth is in dollar backed instruments and cash and WHY I ALWAYS RECOMMEND THE SAME (for now).

The reality is clear, people refuse to see the truth because the truth is scary. Our entire economy runs on an empty promise designed to enrich about .5% of our population, in the end it is only a system of accounting and any system of accounting people accept that can’t be counterfeited will work, ANY SYSTEM. The difference is BTC was designed to benefit everyone, the dollar was designed to control almost everyone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Final Note from Jack ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As I said in my intro, the person that created Bitcoin had a perfect understanding of the modern money system, velocity of money, fractional reserve banking etc.  The primary reason most fail to “get bitcoin” is that they don’t even understand the monetary system.   In an effort to fix that I recommend these resources.

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning” ~Henry Ford
