Update: We managed to figure out a way to keep our internet connection at home, but at a drastic loss of connection speed. No more online gaming, streaming video or Skype phone calls for a while.
But, as I said – we do know that Cox is getting competition in this area finally. Even better, the competition is Craw-Kan – a customer-owned Co-Op that my dad has been part of for over 20 years. He gets his electric, cable TV, broadband internet, AND his house and cell telephone through them, and because he’s an owner, he gets a DIVIDEND CHECK back from them every year. Oh, yes – we’ve already contacted them and asked to be informed the minute they are able to connect to our address.
I know – the Saturday Posts series are usually just a graphic with a one or two sentence idea that triggers thought or humor about some topic.
Today I’m going in a different direction. Something has been on my mind that I need to share with you, and you all need the warning. Yes, I said “warning”. It is that big of a deal.
There is something about to happen. All the major governments of the world know it will soon happen, but none of them are talking about it because, quite frankly, they have no idea what to do and fear triggering a panic they can’t spin or control. The mass media also knows this event is about to happen, but they are keeping quiet for another reason – talking about it won’t sell advertising OR papers, so for them there is no upside to the story.
What is the story? The world – yes, the whole WORLD – has already begun the decline to a life without OIL. I could tell you a lot, but I’m nowhere near as good at telling this as the people who produced and directed a documentary my wife and I watched recently. It is called “The End of Suburbia” – and we got our copy from the Netflix disc service. Please, find this documentary and watch it. We need to be informed to make the changes necessary to the post-oil world we will be living in within a few decades.
