You should be concerned about loosing the “freedom of the press”. Without the online news provided by private outlets, you would never know just how the politicians are affecting our life styles…..

“In the realm of alt media,” Edward Szall of TruNews told us yesterday, “many took the words of Matt Drudge, from his appearance on Oct. 6 on the Alex Jones Show, as the ‘canary in the coal mine’ that hard times were beginning. And that the real fight for the collective freedom of the press was underway.”

Survival Shotgun

survival shotgun

It is a good idea having a shotgun for in home use against intruders, the use of a pistol or rifle could cause unwanted damage outside the home……

The shotgun, could in fact be the simplest and most versatile survival weapon of all. While, it’s not easy to hide and its hard to deploy in tight areas, so it’s not ideal to foil street crime or highjack. However, for home defense and urban or suburban civil disorder situations the shotgun has nice advantages over handguns and carbines.

Prevent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

carbon monoxide

Great article on what to be aware of during certain circumstances….

Your wood stove or furnace pumps the lifeblood of your home—heat. If this system isn’t working right, you could be wasting fuel and headed for a breakdown. Or worse, you could be putting yourself and your loved ones at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning. Each year, an average of 439 people die from accidental, non-fire-related CO poisoning in the U.S.

Top Secret Spy Manual

spy manual

I was privileged to have met one of these spies,  (in the 1980’s) that had been dropped behind enemy lines during the war.  From what he told me, he had not lasted very long, just a few days. He woke up in the hospital with a metal plate in his head…

Before there was a CIA there was England’s Special Operations Executive. And, as WWII heated up, it put all of its collective tradecraft knowledge into a single training manual. And, it turns out that training spies to operate behind enemy lines is often good training for going outdoors, too.

THE VODKA WARS

vodha wars

In 1996, my home life was coming rapidly to an end, my wife had just about enough and was ready for me to leave. My drinking had to stop…and it did.

Living with an alcoholic mother is not fun. As a method of survival, my sister and I used humor to deflect our anger and frustration. My father was an Air Force officer and we were used to “Military Speak.” I composed the following mock news report to describe how crazy things could get:

Bill Gates says only socialism

Bill Gates

If Bill Gates were to give his riches to the world as well as the income he makes from his investments, and live like the rest of us – then I might have some faith in this idea….

 

Bill Gates, the richest man in the world with a net worth estimated to be a mind-boggling $79.1 billion, who made his fortune from a capitalist enterprise, Microsoft, in a capitalist country, the U.S.A., bemoans that capitalism cannot save the world from the fiction of man-made global warming, aka climate change.
