I belong to a local group which spun off from a 912 group. We call ourselves Carolina’s Good Neighbors. We’re all about our community and have pretty much given up on any hope for the national politicians. While we hope we’re wrong about the future of our country, we’re taking no chances. We’ve organized to help our small community to weather the bad times. We offer CWP classes for community safety. We’re trying to start a silver exchange to generate local currency. We’re opening a long term food storage store to supply the local people with bulk dry goods and local vegatables. We’re also planning on making ethanol from sorghum. Heck, I’m even running for town council.

At any rate, here’s a float that we put in our local summer “Peanut Party” parade. Another 912 group in another town had borrowed my friend’s trailer and had constructed a frame around which they hung tarps. We then took the frame and trailer to my house and put some 1/2” wafer board and some paint on it. I printed out most of the graphics at work. Anyhow, here it is.
