Mission Statement:

Green Eco Families with Kids

Community Description:

We are a small family (man, wife, 7yo son) looking to get out of the rat race and live a more natural, green, healthy, peaceful, stress free, and sustainable life in a small community of likeminded similar families. We were hit very hard by the outsourcing of IT jobs overseas and then after rebuilding our lives we go hit hard again by the Real Estate derivatives corruption and the great recession.

During this process and rollercoaster of a life we realized that fighting to keep ourselves in the middleclass and even just surviving was a futile battle to keep ourselves in a life that wasn’t healthy for us anyways.

We realized that a good quality life is about family, healthy kids, friends, non-poisonous food, good nutrition, love, and a stress-free existence. Additionally, having a young child on board we want to protect (not shelter) him from everything rotten in the world but preparing him for the worst and letting him decide for himself if he wants to fight for a happy successful future in the world have chosen to leave.

We are very enlightened as to what is really going on in this country and what is or has happened to the middleclass, our futures and the futures of our children.

We are not happy with the corporate religious takeover of the United States of America, but there is so much more going on that most people don’t know about or realize, because if they did there would be massive rioting in the streets. Unfortunately, those that are willing to get their voices heard (even in a nonviolent manner) are scorned by those that are still hanging on and don’t realize the extent of the damage being done to us in this country. Our politicians and the mass media have done a great job of shutting out the voices of those of us in need of assistance and change.

Our Children have to live in this world, and will have to suffer for a long time to come if we don’t do something about.

We are very tired of eating bland, poisonous and genetically altered food and having to decide whether to pay for our daily expenses or eat fresh healthy food and we want to grow our own.

Our dream and goal is to find some acreage in Southern California where our likeminded families can live in peace, health, and harmony and self-sufficient, self-sustaining. Call it the old pioneer lifestyle if you wish but without the violence.

We do have a strong sense of spirituality through a connection to Mother Nature and a strong belief in common decency, kindness with Karma being our guiding light, but we do not participate in any commercialized religion.

We feel that the Native American’s had it right in their lifestyle and connection to the earth but see no proof of a creator and we believe in the science of evolution.

I’m an X hired gun software developer/consultant to the Fortune 500 and my family and I were hit very had by the outsourcing of our jobs to Asia that started way back in 1999, and then after rebuilding our lives and having our first child we got hit again by the Real Estate fraud and corruption and the Great Recession. We have been trying to exist ever since, and struggle every day to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table.

If you feel that you and your family (couples or single mom’s with children) are compatible with ours and wish start planning our future please contact us via FIC.

I look forward to hearing from.
