Bless his heart - bless ALL our hearts....

This story: Acting CFO for Freddie Mac apparently commits suicide

The story does not state whether he had a wife and/or kids. I am sure he has those that love him and for their loss I am so sorry.

Suicide breaks my heart because someone decides to die because whatever is coming, whatever they fear is worse - WORSE.

It couldnt be that Freddie was being held accountable - they are getting a free pass from the Government and the Media. Ask AIG how it feels to be in the cross-hairs - Freddie Mac has been able to totally skate.

So - if it wasnt the pressure he was enduring - it had to be something he feared coming.... Something that he knew because of his position.

Fannie and Freddie hold 52% of ALL MORTGAGES in the COUNTRY.

50% of Freddie's PRIME (those are the best) MORTGAGES are in arrears - meaning they arent paying and heading towards foreclosure. Wonder how many SUBPRIME are already there?

I take this to mean that BO can spend all he wants - Zombies can start raging - its Fannie and Freddie that WILL bring down this Country.

When 1/2 of all mortgages go under and when China fully decides that copper is better than the dollar - we are through - WAIT - we are almost there....

People - I hate clanging this bell - I really do - but when was the last time you were in a store? What did you buy? Buy all the crap you want, but add to it food stuffs that can keep your family fed while times are unsafe.

Do you own a gun? Do you know how to use it? Do you have ammunition to make it more than a paperweight?

Do you know what to do in an emergency? One is coming - there are some basic things that are the same for ALL emergencies - water - food - shelter - Have you thought about your plan?

Start your plan today..... Here are a list of books I recently sent to a friend and thought many might like this list too. This friend is planning on making her family safe and she is starting the long road to preparedness. She is a fellow Texan so she has a lot of the mindset already as well as some of the "hardware" :) :

A book list I have found I JUST LOVE:

The Self-Sufficient Life and How to Live It - John Seymour
The Self-Sufficient Gardner - John Seymour - You can find both these books at Barnes and Noble - I LOVE LOVE LOVE them and pour over them frequently.

Storey's Basic Country Skills - Also at B&N

Making the Best out of Basics by James Talmage Stevens - had to find online - it was a hunt, let me tell you....

Food Storage Pantry by Sue Layton

Gardening When It Counts - Steve Solomon (B&N)

And then individualized/specialized books on different animals or things I want to know about.

Start now - Pray - Praise and PREPARE

Storey's basic country skills is the shiat. Mother in law got me a copy and it is totally awesome.

Don't forget Carla Emery's "Encyclopedia of Country Living" everything in one book & recipes too.

The news report I saw said his five (5) year old daughter found him - one daughter and his wife survive him.

I wouldn't link Freddie Mac too much to the suicide. He sounded like an honest man - and the issue of foreclosures, etc., might have had as much to do with his choice as anything else.

Bless him, and his family. No one deserves this.
