Does your wife look like a dumpy bag lady? Is it because you spend all your extra cash on preparedness?
You have a stash of ammo, enough guns to start a small war, tons of dehydrated food, AND your kids look like dumpster divers who have not found a crust of bread in a month, and they are starving.
Do you know what the One Worlders' mental image of a survivor and Bible believer is? They think you bought all your clothes from a yard sale by the Branch Davidians in Waco just before the BATF blew them away.
Stop going out looking trashy. That is the trend of losers, and you need to show the Hidden Hand and their slaves that you dress well. I am not talking about throwing money around. I am talking about dressing up with a shirt and tie to go out to eat EVERY TIME. I am talking about burning that stupid baseball cap and finding a good western hat or a fedora. I am talking about seeing to it that your wife and daughters have the resources to get their hair done nicely and often.
Do your kids wear trashy clothes, and is your son having to grab his britches all the time because the jack ass bought a waist size four sizes too big ON PURPOSE? And, you are the jerk who let him do it?
What do you think you are anyway? If God might have mercy on America (or your country somewhere else in the world), then God will not want you dressing in the style of the heathen and the One World Satanists.
Style? Yes, but the style of decency and smart neatness. You cannot demand attention and make a statement in the market place if you look like a baboon with a two day drunk on.
Do you have a beard? Fine, but trim it up neat with some character. The mountain man look is NOT going to get you a hearing with 99% of Americans. Let Alabama sing about the mountain men, but I promise you, if you really look the part you will be thought of as a hick burp.
I usually wear an ordinary shirt and a western straw hat when I go to town. I wear huaraches which are a woven Mexican dress shoe. This keeps the masses guessing what I am about. I DO NOT want to look like a preacher, but I do want to cause people to feel I have dressed up a bit just for them. They have a mental preconception for "preachers in uniform" and that is why you preachers get all those sacral fake sweet responses from religious wannabes. Leave me out on that one.
When we go out to eat ANYWHERE, I wear a modest long sleeve western shirt and Levies like ranch people wear and a bolo tie from Mexico. We ALWAYS get better service. If you dress well for people, people will treat you better than the fugitive from a Halloween party in front of you in the Budweiser tee shirt. If you live in an area in rebellion against order, dress up anyway. The rebels will tremble when you walk in the door.
Now, go spend some of that alleged survival cash load buying off the One Worlders' audience with class and good manners. Speak with authority because people cannot avoid you. The acre you take charge of may get someone saved, and it may stop some One Worlder from taking that acre for the devil and the dirty dozen on high.
Ronald Reagan had one thing right-- he knew the value of bearing and presence. He knew that a President who looks and sounds regal is respected. His humor was an oasis in chaos that even his enemies looked forward to.
Clean up you speech, and learn to talk with authority. READ READ READ, but read the Bible and information sources that are trustworthy. Read writers like Churchill, Teddy Roosevelt, and Alistair Cooke who mastered the English language. You don't even have to agree with these men, but you need to teach your family to read and talk three levels above the masses and asses. You need to learn to be polite, pert, and potent when you speak your opinion. And, you need to fire the imaginations of people around you. Make them think thoughts they avoid, thoughts that Big Nanny discourages.
I can tell a man who does not read books. He is dull and has only three four letter adjectives.
AND, please, HAVE AN OPINION. The world today is obsessed with fairness, niceness, and politically correct blather and bull. If you have an opinion on something, speak with such authority that other people are jealous of your zeal. If someone disagrees with you, but they show a narrow minded conviction, tell them you do not agree, but you will fight to the death for their right to have an attitude.
Attitude.... what an endangered species!!
Now, go do the right thing..... and, do it in public without worrying if someone will be offended.
James 4:17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
