How Smart Phones Kill

There are risks beyond smart phone addictions.  Let’s beware of the addicted.

We know it’s not safe to be around drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  But how about smart phones?  The highest odds of an accidental death is dying is a vehicle accident.  One reason for this high risk is drivers under the influence as the chart below shows.

National Safety Council

Chart from National Safety Council.

The Wall Street Journal article “Smartphone Addicts Behind the Wheel Drive Car Insurance Rates Higher” (2) explains one of the greatest risks to our safety in this day and age is the growing addiction to the use of smart phones.

Addiction is a brain disorder and though smart phone use is still socially accepted and even encouraged.   At a time when society should be discouraging phones use in automobiles, some states have even begun the process of offering a smart phone digital version of driver’s license.  This seems a bit like being able to get a driver’s license in a liquor store.

Smart phone use can be so habit forming that it puts drivers and anyone around them at risk.  Drivers using smart phones are like under an influence and can be distracted.  This creates risk for us all, especially if we are using a smart phone in the car.

The article says:  “Insurers increasingly blame distracted drivers as costs related to crashes outpace premium increases.  Distracted by their smartphones, America’s drivers are becoming more dangerous by the day.  That is pushing auto-insurance rates higher as insurers struggle to keep up.  The growing number of wrecks is swamping the much-heralded beneficial impacts of newer, safer vehicles,” said Robert Hartwig, an insurance professor at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina.  At Allstate Corp., President Matthew Winter told shareholders this month that the correlation between smartphone ownership and accident frequency is striking.

The article goes on to tell how there is an increasing incidence of accidents where there are no skid marks.   Drivers leave their eyes off the road so long they don’t even see what they hit.

What can we do?

Let’s be smart and live longer and easier.  Learn to use smartphone features to stay focused on the road while driving.

We can use smart phones to protect ourselves from the smart phone addictions of others (in the car at least).

Merri and I do not use a smart phone but I get it, most readers do so.  Here are a few ways to protect against others who do not use them wisely.

#1: Use apps that block texting while driving.  Cellcontrol, Drive Safe Mode, Live2Txt are three such apps. Verizon has a website that describes some of them (3).

#2: Use apps that encourage you to drive safer.  SafeDrive, for example, rewards you for not texting while driving.  Simply open the app whenever you’re behind the wheel.  It will automatically start rewarding you with points you can use toward discounts at participating stores if you’re traveling at least 6 mph.  The app tracks the number of points based on driving speed, time spent in traffic, and distance traveled.

Drivemode turns text messages into audio. gives the name of callers, turns text and email messages into audio and can auto-respond without having to touch the device.

#3: Use Hands-free and voice recognition software to reduce risks.  Research has shown that by making the most of smartphone features and new car technology drivers can make legal use of their phones in a safer and more responsible manner.

Of course most of all be an alert driver.  Nothing protects you more than recognizing that there are some idiots, drunks and addicts on the road.  They’ll be sorry they killed you, but you could be just as dead.

Businesses want your attention to get your money every working hour.  They use the smart phone in this endeavor to attract and addict you.  Don’t let businesses, that have their own agenda, control your life.  Don’t let those, who are addicted by smart phones, ruin your life either.

Use smart phones and social media to your benefit but protect yourself against their dangers.

This is a serious problem.  Last week we saw how smart phones can erode our privacy and freedom of thought.   Then we saw how smart phones can create health problems.  Now we can see how smart phones can put death three feet from our door,  traveling at us at 60 miles per hour or more.

Our report “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere” investigates how smart phones can make our lives really better but also create danger in many aspects of life.   For example, one small part of a growing smart phone danger is in the Bayer-Monsanto merger that can control the food we eat and even think and know about.

Bayer and Monsanto creates problems with the chemicals and science they inject in our food.  The problem is compounded because they have  working relationships with AT&T.  AT&T  has been creating a web of information control over internet portals, our phones, our TV system and entertainment content production.   Plus AT&T have created alliances with social media gaming companies that have learned how to influence social media and even make smart phones even more addictive.

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?


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.


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 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.
