Operating a small business and being prepared

Profit-401K2013-flickr

Preparing for the future bad times is very expensive, therefore, perhaps starting a small business would be helpful…also, the personal you hire could also be a part  of your survival group.

Building and running a business means handling a variety of tasks and duties. Some of those duties you may enjoy and some you may not. Some of those duties you may be good at and some may frustrate you.

Do you live near a Nuclear Power plant

nuclear meltdown near

I know that modern Nuclear power plants have all kinds of new safety features and multiple back ups, but…..

According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, there are 61 active commercial nuclear plants spread across the United States. A question on the minds of many is, what would happen to those plants if the nation experienced a widespread, long-term blackout? Would there be a nuclear meltdown?

“False Flags” and the American Dream

the jolly roger

It appears there is so much conflict in the Middle East, it is difficult to imagine  any peace anytime soon….

Throughout history, governments have staged attacks on their own people in order to place the blame on their enemies.  These kinds of attacks are known as “false flags”, and they are often used to justify military action.

Supreme Court Appointment and 2nd Ammendent

gun rights at risk

What a great era the 1940’s-50’s were, almost everyone owned a gun for hunting or sport or self-protection. Very little gun violence…..

As President Obama gets ready to appoint a successor, our constitutional rights to own a firearm are hanging in the balance. While the Supreme Court can’t unilaterally kill the second amendment, a left-wing activist court will be able to refine what the 2nd amendment means and push through all sorts of anti-2ndd amendment rulings — rulings that could severely limit our rights to own and carry a firearm.

Video – Bottle sling to carry your drinks

Knots for various reasons in survival – not often thought of and most do not even know how……

Ever broke a lid on your Nalgene or had a circular object you wished you could collar and lift? Look no further than the venerable Bottle Sling I’ll teach you how to tie on this week’s Knot of the Week. From what we’ve been able to find out, the bottle sling was first used by ancient greeks to not only carry jugs and bottles, but also as a surgical sling and traction device for dislocated joints.

North Korea and the possibility of an EMP

From various news reports, we all know just how dangerous Kim Jung-Un can be – this missile launch just might be a rouse for an attempt for N. Korean to blackmail the world….

Now that the North Korean missile launch is “over,” most would assume there is no cause for concern.  That assumption is incorrect, because Kim Jung-Un has already declared there will be more missiles launched.  Rice, the U.S. National Security Advisor has already stated that the Koreans did indeed launch using an ICBM.  The very first thing we can do is present an excellent site that tracks satellites, their trajectories, orbits, and other useful data.

Are you reaping all of the veteran benefits you have earned

VA-Handbook

An interesting story of one veteran dealing with benefits….

All I Wanted Was A Discount

When I heard that both Home Depot and Lowe’s offer a 10% discount to Veterans, I inquired to to find out more. My wife and I are homeowners and like many of you in the same boat, you probably have the same love/hate relationship with your local home improvement store that I do. On one hand, it’s exciting to look at all the eye candy there, envisioning what you can do to upgrade your home.
