Fort Myers Beach, Florida,
The United States is dead.
Did that get your attention? It should. I realized this a few years ago. Corruption in DC and Wall Street has lead us down a very dangerous path, and at this point it is my belief that it is not going to get any better until we see an all-on collapse of the world economic and financial systems.
I am hoping for the best of course as I do still consider myself an optimist, but, I (and currently 11 other dedicated locals) have been quietly preparing for the worst.
We have started a local "Colony" here on Fort Myers Beach, Florida. The goal of course is 100% self-sufficiency. Reaching that goal requires the participation and contributions of citizens like you. Growing all of our own food. Collecting and purifying our own water supply. Providing a safe-haven for all of the Colony members to live close together in Community and Love. Provide for our own security. Stock up on the items that we know we won't be able to acquire from stores now such as heritage seed, toilet paper, cooking oil, flour, canning jars, ammo, solar panels and batteries.
We have come to the conclusion that there is no "voting out" the corruption and looting we are seeing. Activism is not turning this around. Waving our signs isn't changing their minds. Even the FDIC is bankrupt.
It's time to gather and prepare. If you have awoken as well to these truths, we invite you to rsvp for this month's Colony meeting: Ken and Diane [email]

Statement of Housing Non-discrimination:
Our community fits the legal definition of "housing for older persons" * and thus we may restrict membership/residency to those of a certain age and may have limits on child membership/residency in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
Our community does not discriminate in regards to housing based on race/color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, family status (i.e. having children, not having children, or being pregnant), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, age, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or being the victim of domestic abuse.
Our community does not provide land or housing and is therefore not subject to fair housing laws.
Housing in our community is incidental to employment and therefore fair housing laws do not apply (though employment discrimination laws may).
