A belated mission statement

So I've done an introduction on my blog, but I want to also make a mission statement, or rather a policy or promise to you of what I intend to deliver with this blog.
  1. There will never be advertisements of any kind on this blog including blog rolls, or icons or what not of supporting websites. Why? Because advertisement pisses me off. I want to write my thoughts, thats it. Read, or do not read, I do not care.
  2. All you will get is exactly what I think about current events. I have no affiliations to anything, and I have no personal preference of political parties or anything else.
  3. I do not take donations, and I do not intend to be published or make money from what I write in any way.
  4. You may repost anything without permission (or rather this here is your permission) and without giving me credit.
  5. Comments will not be moderated, modified or deleted. Yes, even if you're a troll.
  6. Feedback is encouraged. Agree, disagree, or whatever. Tell me what you want to hear about.
  7. I am going to be brutally honest. We're not going to be able to seriously address current trends until we're honest with ourselves about the situation.
  8. There will be typos. I'm not a writer, and to be honest I don't want to be a writer but if I don't write about what's going on I go stir crazy.
  9. I'm not a journalist. I am writing about current events in the context of future trends.
  10. I'm not an economist. Thank god.
  11. The news I use within my posts is always within my twitter feed. Thats my dumping ground, and please follow. What I post are what I see as key events, good or bad, in shaping events to come. I also like to point out propaganda, and other random things I find interesting. Sometimes I post a link to a tune to sum up how I feel about the day.
  12. All I want is for you to be safe, prepare, and thrive. Because without you, in the future there may not be a me. Community is everything.
