Roller Coaster Week - Hang on and try not to spew


Wha-hooooo! I can hear the champaign corks popping after the recent rally in the markets. Of course, this means it's all going to be OK.... We can believe our government saying that, "the fundamentals of our economic system are solid" and the mainstream media pundits telling us to "hold the line for the long haul - you're money is safe." .....NOT!!!

This summer rally will be short-lived, and was predicted months ago by one of my favorite sources of REAL business news, "Peoplenomics" economist George Ure. You can read his daily business report for free over at http://www.urbansurvival.com/ Paid subscribers to his service get additional insights for sound investment decisions. Even though redneck people like me aren't investors, Mr. Ure makes economic news interesting and fun. There are many other reliable sources who tell our current economic story completely different than what the masses are being fed on Bloomberg, CNBC, etc. The truth is, what we are actually heading for beginning this fall will make the great depression look like a block party. I know, you're thinking "what does this chic know?" and my sister thinks I have completely lost my mind. As I said in my last posting, I have been researching this for months. Anyone who knows me is assured I don't take on extreme views without ample and specific evidence. I've done my homework on this, and though a Rockerchic doesn't like being wrong, this is one matter I would love to be wrong about... but my gut tells me there's something very foreboding on the horizon.

There are some excellent videos on YouTube posted by experienced and knowledgeable stock traders and economists that explain the whole mess in a way even blonds can understand, and why it's much more serious than MSM is reporting. Just go to my YouTube page, "Rockerchic4God" where you can view a sampling of the best I've found. I especially recommend videos by "manoftruth", "myspacesecrets" and "visionvictory". These guys are the pros and experts of investing and economics - not those talking heads on the squawk box - they are nothing but paid pundits, whored by the media corporations that tell them to candy-coat the grim financial truth. Oh, and speaking of truth... check out Revelation 18, which discusses how the mammoth economic world power (that's U.S.) is going to completely implode in on itself.


"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen."


The collapse of Indy Mac is purported to have been caused by panicky customers making a "run" on the bank. The truth is, this bank deserved to go down because of shady mortgage deals they offed to investors. Someone told the truth about it, and smart consumers decided to get their hard-earned money out of there. The FDIC "insurance" protection may mean that eventually, customers with $100,000 or less can get their money... HOWEVER, now other banks are refusing to accept the cashier's checks issued by Indy Mac's new "owner", the FDIC! While the mainstream news was reporting that "ATM's were working over the weekend - customers had access to cash", that was a blatant LIE. The truth was told by one of L.A.'s local newscasters because he himself had an account there, and said that he had tried to access his cash from the ATM that very weekend - but was denied! That illustrates what stinking, rotten liars corpgov is, and if you think your bank is safe, be warned that none of them are immune from insolvency. Best to have some cash reserves of your own, or buy some precious metals if you want to protect your money.
When you look at the world economic picture, the increased frequency and severity of natural disasters, geopolitics, the middle east on the verge of war, etc.

It is obvious to the Christian observer we are in the end-times, the great Tribulation. We are not long for this world, by some estimates it will all be over by 12/21/2012. I am trying to urge people to prepare, even if for anything else - even if things don't collapse completely, it's simply prudent for all to be prepared for plain-old natural disasters, anyway. One good website with lots of good preparation and survival info and resources is http://www.endtimesreport.com/.


1. Jesus is coming! Jesus is coming! That's more exciting than hearing the ice-cream truck on a hot summer day.
2. We don't have to worry about having enough money for retirement.
3. Won't have to get old, thereby saving Rockerchic thousands on plastic surgery.
4. We'll be reunited with loved ones who have passed before us.
5. Our health will be restored (no more pills or dumb doctors needed!)
6. No need to worry about that asteroid headed our way in 2029.
7. People who are suicidal won't have to do anything but wait. This will especially benefit those who are suicidal AND lazy.
8. We'll never be bombarded with tabloid reports about Suri Cruise, Shilo Pitt or any other dysfunctional celebrity offspring when they reach adulthood - because they won't!
9. Militant atheists will finally shut the f**k up!
10. With no one left to tempt or destroy, Satan will be very bored and lonely.



Just like guns, cars, the internet or any other thing, it's not the thing itself but the user of it that determines good or evil. Any art form is subject to the interpretation of the "beholder" if you will. The vast majority of heavy metal musicians have nothing to do with satanism or evil, in fact most of them are believers and many are even Christians. There is a small minority that are "out there", the fringe, claiming they are satanists or whatever, but most metalheads don't pay any attention to them. Trust me, I've been around many, many metal musicians. Just because the music may seem dark to some, doesn't mean it's evil. Wolfman movies are scary, but that doesn't mean that Lon Chaney, Jr. was actually advocating murder and mutilation. Did anyone ever accuse Bela Lugosi of actually being a vampire? Of course not. It was entertainment. Granted, some of today's new stuff is pretty angry - they are screaming off-key, and even I can't stand to listen to it. But if your heart is firmly planted in the Word and your are spiritually sound, things like lyrics take on a different meaning. For example, when I hear a metal love song, I can imagine it in a context of Christ's love for me rather than romantic love from a person. Combine this with the raw energy and powerful melody of metal and it's awesome!


Friar Cesare Bonizzi, a Catholic Capuchin monk in Milan. He's caught the heavy metal bug and is singing in his own heavy metal band! Another "Rocker for God", a man after my own heart! You Gotta see him in this video...



Here's my prediction for how this will probably go down: Knowing that the biggest turn-off of the Bush administration is the Iraq war, I don't think they would be stupid enough to jeopardize McCain's chance to win in the fall. If we attacked Iran before November, it would mean certain victory for Obama. So, I think that it will depend on who wins the general election. If McCain wins, we are going to war with Iran soon after and McCain will continue where G.W. left off. If Obama wins, no way will a democratic congress or war-weary American public stand for pounding Iran. So, Israel will "do the deed" if Obama wins, that way we'll be obligated to help our ally avoid getting "wiped off the map". We'll see how this plays out, but according to Scripture, there WILL be a WWIII, and soon.


Here in California, we continue to have a ridiculous number of wildfires burning. Our air has been super smokey for weeks now, seriously hampering my pool fun. The only tan I'm sporting now is fake-bake, and the sky has taken on a surreal Mars look to it. Our prayers go out to those who have more serious problems than sun-bathing though - they have lost their homes, or are in fear of it, and not to mention all the poor little animals who have no chance of survival in these fire storms. Many pets are also abandoned at shelters because their owners could not go to shelters, motels, apartments, etc. with them. Please send prayers this way for all the people and animals.


Guitarist Kevin "K.K." Edwards brings us a special report after performing with Shy Tiger at the 5-day, hair-metal blowout festival in Oaklahoma earlier this month. He plays for more bands than anyone can keep track of, but perhaps most notably axes for Izzy Ozborne: A Tribute To The Music of Ozzy. Izzy's bassist also happens to be my husband, Troy "Mr. Hammer-on" Minch, but I digress: KK reports, "It was crazy and hecka fun like going back to the 80's - they sold over 100,000 tickets..." There were literally dozens upon dozens of bands in the mega-lineup, and included some of the Rockerchic's faves like Queensryche, Dokken, L.A. Guns, Ratt, Cinderella, Kingdom Come, and the queen of all Rockerhics... Lita Ford! Plus, others too numerous to mention and may have me reaching for the sniffing salts to keep from fainting!

KK also got to jam with a number of notable musicians on various stages and in the stars' camps and said, "Steelheart was my favorite and have most bands on the list on video.This is my first Rocklahoma and can't wait for next year but just as good "Aug 29th - Sept 1st" is another one coming up on labor day weekend over 40 bands 4 days with camping called 'Rock the Bayou' in Houston Texas." This venue will also include an overwhelming super-band studded lineup including (but not limited to) Sammy Hagar, Alice Cooper, Slaughter, Firehouse, Yngwie Malmsteen, Twisted Sister and Y&T.

A special shout-out thank you to KK for bringing us this exclusive report. You can check out the Izzy Ozborne website at http://www.izzyoz.com/ and KK's MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/kkguitarmaster

You can catch Izzy Ozborne live as they are the opening act for Blue Oyster Cult at the Cascade Theatre in Redding, CA on July 24th. Tickets can be had at http://www.cascadetheatre.org/

Not your average blogger... a Rockerchic???

I'm the newest kid on the blogging block. I always envisioned most bloggers as urban twenty-somethings earning 60K in relax-fit Diesel jeans, eating organic foods, and driving around in beamers or explorers. Perhaps many really don't fit that stereotype, but I doubt few are more eclectic than I am. I'm a 45 year old married gal who grew up po' white trash in rural Northern California. I drive a '93 Chrysler Imperial, for which my motto is, "Hey, don't laugh... It's paid for!" I have a Ba.S. degree in Psychology (which was earned after a sudden illness that forced me to change careers a decade ago) and work for below-market wages in my County's mental health department.

I'm also a recovering alky with 12 years' sobriety. My checkered past was fraught with tales worthy of a Harlequin romance novel from Hell, I partied a LOT and landed in some weird places and situations. The most memorable, though, was living in Los Angeles in the mid 1980's and this country-raised city kid had a fever for action. It was the hey-day of the glam-metal craze, and I was an office worker by day, hair-metal diva by night - stalking my rounds at the live band clubs in Hollywood. The Whisky, the Rainbow, Gazzari's, FM Station (my favorite in North Hollywood) and the Country Club. My hair was even bigger than my ego, and my black leather skirt, stiletto heels and spiked collars were actually a little conservative compared to some of the other blond vixens on the L.A. club scene then. I dated many musicians, and I'll admit it was damn fun. I eventually married and ended up back in my hometown when glam metal was succumbing to death by 90's grunge.

A few years ago, my mother passed away and left me a small inheritance. I used some for school and the rest in a savings account. With interest rates low, I decided to take a risk and look into some type of investment. Now, I had no idea where to go with this. Folks around these parts don't know what a mutual fund is, and "stock market" means the cattle auction yard up the highway. 401K? Here in Nor Cal's version of Appalachia, we don't know what one is, much less have one. Half the population of this county are on welfare, disability, SSI or retirement. As for the other half, most work for Wal-Mart or other part-time jobs with no benefits. So, with the advent of the internet, I set out to research and teach myself about the stock market and investments so I could make an intelligent, informed decision. (Not what I used to do with "disposable income", which in the party days went to the bars or up my nose).

And so, I started googling phrases like "stock investing for dummies", "Investments for beginners", etc. What I stumbled upon ROCKED me to my very core. I found some very credible sources, authors, traders, investment consultants, and even the former U.S. Comptroller General saying that our financial system is on the verge of COLLAPSE! Being the curious type as well as a skeptic, I wanted to know why they are saying these things. So I dug some more. I learned about how banking works, the Federal Reserve (which is neither Federal, nor does it actually "reserve" anything), and what this mortgage crisis was all about. "OMG", I shrieked. This hasn't been on any of the news (this was back in January). If that weren't scary enough, I then stumbled across articles on Peak Oil, New World Order, crash of the dollar. Holy Crap! I started putting the pieces together, and all of this sounds very much like what's in Bible prophecies. I realized that what I need to be preparing for is WAAAAY beyond "investing" money, which once hyper-inflation really kicks in will not be worth the paper it's printed on.

What I... what WE... need to be preparing for is bigger than anything experienced since the great depression of the 1930's. But, everyday I keep studying all of this, going to different sources, verifying the numbers and hoping there's been a huge mistake and it will all be wrong. Unfortunately, the more information I find, the more the conclusion solidifies like wet cement on a hot dry day. At this point, the magnitude of our country sinking in a red-ink Titanic is just beginning to be talked about on MSM, albeit minimized. The corpgov ringers' pollyanna cheerleading seems to be fooling no one.

I had never considered "blogging" before, I thought that was for you latte-lapping yuppies in your SUV's on your way to a mountain-biking excursion. Rockerchics don't "blog", but I guess here's one that does. Why? I consider it my duty as a Christian to get involved in the truth-telling campaign. How else are hard-working Americans going to prepare themselves for what is coming? This is no exaggeration, no joke - seriously, dude. A year from now life as we know it will be drastically different from today. No matter what "genre" your geared to, where you come from or what you want in life. Your freedom is in danger. Your money is in danger. Your American birthright is being stolen out from under you by the globalist bandwagon bunch. Don't believe me? Google Bilderberg Group, check out my video playlist on my YouTube channel (Rockerchic4God). I will begin to compose a list of links to other very credible sources and put it on this site. At first I didn't believe it either. I have a tested-confirmed I.Q. of 137 and I don't fall for frooty "conspiracy theories" or wear a tinfoil helmet.

So here's what this blog will do. I will keep you all informed of the highlights I get from reliable sources, offer suggestions for preparing for God-knows-what, and to keep us all from coming apart at the seams with all of these weighty issues I will impart some humor and lively discussion of classic heavy metal for all you headbangers out there (yeah, c'mon - you thirty-somethings, you still secretly love Metallica and 'Priest, don'tcha?) Admit it... When was the last time you talked about the Scorpions' Love at First Sting album?

I'm also open to suggestions. If they suck, I will tell you. If they don't suck, I'll do what I can. What you will ALWAYS get from me is the truth, whole and unvarnished... Regardless of whether you like my platform goth mary-jane shoes or not!

Until next week, ROCK ON, buds!
