The Military and Dough Boys

by | Jul 17, 2019 | Archives

What is America’s greatest military risk?

Is fake news on social media undermining democracy?

Will the growing Chinese navy  and Chinese military bases on islands in the Pacific be our biggest threat?

Could Iran or North Korea be the worst problem?  ISIS, or space attacks on our satellites?

Or is the real terror cookie dough?

Cookie dough helps create a new meaning to the term “Dough Boy”.

No one knows quite for sure why “Doughboy” became a term applied to the infantry of the U.S. Army as early as the Mexican–American War of 1846–1848.  This word became an informal term for a member of the United States Army or Marine Corps and mainly refers to members of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I.

The “Doughboys” of WWI had a huge impact that lingers on the power of democracy to this day.

Now the term “doughboy” could be used to describe the worst security risk faced by the United States of America and other rich industrialized nations.

The USA Today article “As pool of eligible recruits shrinks, military branches compete more than ever for enlistees” (1) documents the problem.

The article tells how military recruiters are failing to meet their recruitment goals.

The biggest problem is explained:  According to 2017 Pentagon data, 71% of Americans ages 17 to 24 are ineligible to join the military because of obesity, lack of a high school diploma or a criminal record.

71%!  Ineligible?

More than seven out of ten… not able to be in… the military?

How can our nation have slipped into such a state that almost three fourths of our youth are not fit to serve?

We have created our own greatest security  terror!

Here’s one reason why we have this awful problem.

The same edition of USA Today that outlined this horrible obesity driven fact, shows the root of this shocking problem in another article, “Nestle Toll House is selling edible cookie dough. Wait, we weren’t supposed to eat it before?” (2).

That article says:  Nestle Toll House is now selling tubs of Edible Cookie Dough.

The treat comes in the classic Chocolate Chip flavor as well as the new Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Monster.

Edible cookie dough expanded our dessert options.

Therein is the problem… the biggest threat.  A common acceptance of a lifestyle that is so unhealthy  that 71% of our youth are unfit for military duty.   Our system allows Nestle to slip articles in the mainstream media that stress the benefits of cookie dough as an “expanded desert option” without mentioning this food’s (I shudder to call it food) the health consequences.

Take a look at the label of Nestle’s edible cookie dough.  There are lots of useless calories and the three main ingredients are wheat flour, sugar and Nestle’s chocolate.  This is not a healthy food and is a contributor to obesity, one of the worst security problems in the Western world!

Less than one cup of this cookie dough exceeds the 2000 calorie a day level!

If ISIS wanted to advertise a poison that would slowly make our youth unfit to defend our nation… it would not be allowed.  Yet cookie dough and the likes of it are actually encouraged.

Beware of the hidden agenda.

Yuval Noah Harari, wrote in his book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind  “This is the essence of the Agricultural Revolution: the ability to keep more people alive under worse conditions.”

The desire for profit in commerce leads society continually deeper into insidious addictions (sugar in this instance).  Little care is given to the long term consequences.

Human nature is such that we can be distracted by scary stuff.

The mind is dominated by risk aversion that amplifies attention on situations that have a small chance of a severe loss.

Consequently, our nature focuses too heavily on unlikely situations such as terrorist, North Korean or Iranian nukes… etc.)

Our natural focus on the improbable diverts our attention so we are vulnerable to the little, but real, absolute dangers at fundamental levels of existence,  such as commonplace acceptance of sugar addiction that leads to obesity that creates a nation that’s unfit to take care of itself. 

How bad can it get?  If already seven out of ten of our youth are unfit for military service. That’s bad enough.

Yet the programmers continue to work on making computers and phones addictive, so we don’t exercise enugh.  Marketers figure out how to sell more cookie dough and potato chips so we do not eat well.

We need to each dig deeply beneath the surface to avoiid the fears and excesses created by the daily influence of commerce.   The best place to start is with the most important person we can influence… ourselves.

Look out for hidden agendas that increase someone’s profits short term, but decrease your well-being in the long run.  For example, we can give up eating cookie dough.  That’s Nestles loss, but you’ll live better… healthier…  smarter… longer and in this way we can be examples that help counter the terrible daily acceptance of products that ruin us as people, culture and nation.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere

How to Gain Extra Freedom – While Almost Everyone Loses Theirs.  Profit from post COVID-19 trends.

I invite you to join Merri and me in expecting the world to get better… to live and earn based on that expectation but…  to also prepare for bad times as well as good.

Just in case… the world goes sideways… we will still survive and prosper.

We do not give up anything much.  We can enjoy the good parts of the new economy, as we protect ourselves from what can be bad.

For example in my report “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere”,  you’ll see how to make your dining room table bring you more control, more time, more income and more freedom.  After all, what can be more accessible than a dining room table?

ecuador-banks

Dining room tables we worked from (and we also sold the tables for a profit).

You’ll even learn how to turn dining room tables into income and tax deductions as we have with these dining room tables we build out of local wood.

Let me be clear.  I expect that the world will get better, at least for the few who adapt and avoid the dangers that the changes from the COVID pandemic will bring. 

The wealth of the world, albeit with inequality, will continue to grow.  This collapse of the global economy will bring an incredible new opportunity for those who know what to do.  Thes profit making avenues offer enormous income potential and even work well in disaster scenarios.

Let me provide one simple, concrete example.  Ginseng.

This is a great health root.  The demand is growing especially in China.  At times good dried Ginseng sells for $1,000 a pound!  This is an incredible and easy crop to grow.   The less care you give it, the more valuable it can become.  Yet if everything goes south, the health qualities will be good to have and make it an excellent barter item.  Once you know what to do with ginseng, it’s easy to grow in your back yard.

Even better one of the best kept secrets is that ginseng and 125 other medicinal crops that are currently unsustainable but can be grown on land  that is extraordinarily cheap.

Ginseng we grew in our back yard.  I know about growing ginseng through experience and explain why and how in the report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere”.

Loquats are another example of an easy to grow crop that help promote natural health.

loquats

Here I am by one of the many loquat trees at our Florida farm.

Loquats are a great fruit for making jam and such, but the loquat leaf has amazing medicinal qualities.  Its is a registered medicine in China and due to its anti viral and respiratory system enhancing qualities has an especially  growing demand right now.   The images below from Amazon.com show that the leaves sell for about a dollar per leaf!

I have many trees on the farm but started growing loquat seedlings last year.

Loquat leaf tea has become really important during the pandemic due to its respiratory strengthening qualities.

I have been drinking a lot of home made loquat leaf tea during the pandemic.

The report “Live Anywere-Earn Everywhere” shows specific places that reduce your living expenses, easily increases your income, makes you smarter, healthier and provides tax benefits as well. 

There are specific places where property is especially inexpensive, now because previous owners do not know about the special qualities created by the pandemic.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes these places special and seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar spots of opportunity.

Here are some of the experiences this report shares:

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not).

The report is very specific because it is about what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning globally.

  • Learn about the magic of the north facing slope.   This is where Merri and I live almost half of our time.  North facing mountain land is some of the least expensive in the world but has hidden values that the report reveals.  There is a lot of this land and a lot of hidden value that you can tap.   When we bought our Blue Ridge farm (252 acres) I mentioned this to my Swiss banking friend.  “That’s bigger than the entire village where I live!” was his response.  Smalltown USA offers a last chance at having a lot of space.  By living in two Smalltown places there are enormous tax advantages as well.  One step in the system saves Merri and me over $28,345 in taxes a year.

The report shows how to buy cheap north facing slopes and create an income producing tiny home for $29,000 or less.

If you lack the $29,000 to invest, a start up using tents is even less.  These are tipis we put up at our farm before we built our first tiny home.  Learn how they can create tens of thousands of dollars in income for you.

  • See ways that small businesses like Tipi rentals can be enhanced by the pandemic but also create BIG tax savings as well as extra income.  For more than 30 years Merri and I have enjoyed a strong six figure income, some years more, in the millions.  Yet there have been very few years when we had to pay federal income tax.  The report lays out a three structure program and how it is used when you are in school (up to age 30), then from 25 to 50, 50 to 70  and beyond 70.   Learn why Chapter C corporations and pensions can be better than the normally recommended Chapter S.  See how new mileage log rules gives you a possible opportunity to increase your tax deductions using IRS Form 4562.  Using a two-vehicle strategy you can gain $12,976 in new deductions even if you do not have to drive one mile further or spend one additional penny on your car.
  • See how a greenhouse can help you eat better and be healthier, plus provide income and a tax deduction and be funded by a government grant.

  • There are similar benefits from having a second home office defined in IRS publication 463 and IRS publication 587, even if your desk is a dining room table.  The report also shows how your dining room table can become an actual income producer as its creates a huge tax deduction at the same time, not to mention a great place to eat, work and lay out plans for a brighter, safer more lucrative and enjoyable future.
  • Living in this environment is also healthier, economically as well as physically.  You’ll see in the report how researchers at Harvard found an amazing correlation between living in conditions found on north facing slopes, longevity and mental health.  The researchers were quite surprised by this strong correlation that also extended into mental health.  In addition to feeling better, reducing stress and having more Joie de Vivre the places outlined in “Live Anywhere-Earn Everywhere” can help you avoid hospitals, high cost disease management (aka health care) and BIG pharma while providing an investment opportunity in three plants that have some of the fastest growing demand in natural health care.  These three plants are just one of seven business opportunities that can create multiple streams of income.
  • How changes in cell phone and internet technology eliminated the need to be in one place.   An old law that creates new opportunity for small business in small towns is available to everyone.
  • Use the specific search and purchase guide.  Construction plans are included that show how to generate first tier income that leads to five, second tier avenues of earnings.
  • How to pay off old debt and avoid new debt by avoiding spurts and embracing value. 
  • Learn seven skills that will always have value.  See how to turn First Aid, medicinal plants, hospitality, food, trees, alternate energy and writing to sell into everlasting, low stress wealth.
