  1. Civilization anyone?

    An Opinion. Much of what we know will be lost if a major shift happens in most societies. People get so enmeshed in trying to survive from day to day simply to get by. We go about working in the trades, in business and factories, and we forget our technology, simply stated, we take them for granted and much more which took hundreds if not thousands of years to develop. It gets set aside in our senses because it isn’t that important. We take it as a given. Of course, surviving is the most...
  2. Are Americans Aware of the Damage Caused by Communism?

    I've noticed from many things younger people say these days, they don't understand history and they don't understand what has happened to America over the last forty years. This is a little long, but perhaps beneficial to those who don't understand what has happened in America before and after many of them were born. Perhaps if it is too long for some of you to read, for those that is the case, skip it. For those who want to know about what has changed and the detrimental effects that have...
  3. Are Race Riots on the Horizon?

    Part Two Remember this folks- When people get upset because there are no jobs, no food, no opportunities, no more gas for the cars, the TV’s get shut off along with the power because the country has gone bankrupt, and money is at a premium, there will be revolution. There will be race wars. It will be many different factions against many others. People will take out their frustrations on anyone or anything they believe is a root cause. The blame for the plight of those affected will be...
  4. Are Race Riots on the Horizon?

    (An observation and an opinion.) Part One If you haven’t been watching what has been happening in the black population over the last twenty years in the United States, I’m guessing you have been in hibernation somewhere. I think if anyone is discounting a race war in the US they are counting on a hope, rather than anything resembling fact. The majority of blacks subscribe to the Rev Wright propaganda, that it is them against us. Most white people understand that or, at the very least are...
  5. Is America Heading Toward Another Civil War?

    A strong idea at best, but is it so far-fetched to think Americans will not take up arms against its fellow neighbors and citizens? Or, is it possible that Americans who are being corralled in an ever growing bureaucratic quagmire as an out of control government strips their rights away from them we were led by a man who won’t allow anyone to see his birth certificate or examine his school records, will they not stop and say, “Enough is enough?” When is enough really enough? But wait, the...
  6. Meaning of Flag Draped Coffin

    I am proud to be an American and I thank a service person each time I see one. Occasionally I pay for their lunch when I see a one of them at a restaurant. I know freedom comes with a price and at times those who serve will be called on to pay the ultimate price for others to enjoy their freedom. I nearly did more than once, and I don’t forget. I am grateful God saw fit to spare me and allowed me to live on when many of my comrades were cut down in the flower of their youth. Caseyboy All...
  7. You Have to Know Where you are Going to get There

    That should be self evident, but how many people do you know who are like a dog chasing his tail? They keep going around in circles and can’t seem to get anything done. I’ll give you an example of what I mean. Let’s say that you suddenly come into a great deal of money and your expenses are no longer a problem. You decide to go on a long globe-hopping trip. You pack a small bag, you know, toothbrush and a few miscellaneous items, you don’t have to take much remember, money is no object so...
  8. How do you think others see Americans?

    I don’t know if any of you know I used to go to archaeological digs in South and Central America as a hobby and as an author. Back in those days I would find myself away from the beaten path most tourist go to. As it turned out a few years ago, I was visiting Nicaragua. and while seated at a table in an outside restaurant having breakfast, I heard two young women talking about the states. I didn't say anything, I just listened. Granada is an amazing place. Most of the buildings are over...
  9. Memorial Day

    Memorial Day Many of us don't understand the significance of Memorial Day, and yet, if we go back in time, we realize the reason for having such a day is to honor those who fell in battle. It is more than just a day to honor the dead. It is a day reserved to honor men and women who gave everything they had in the pursuit of freedom. Not just for Americans, but people all over the world. If you go to Hawaii you will see a cemetery filled with white grave markers. In Arlington, Virginia, is...
  10. my trees 'n me

    A whole bunch of years back I wanted apple trees. I've planted white pine, Norway pine, black spruce, blue spruce, cedar trees, juniper trees- now throw in birch trees, red maple and a pile of black walnut trees. BUT- these were my apple trees! I followed all the directions and they grew. Last year I was able to harvest about 20 apples and I was excited! This spring I smiled as all three trees showed beautiful white blossoms. Small apples began to form. Then last week a wind blew and...
  11. Salvaging Wild Game After a Motor Vehicle Collision

    Fresh meat from a wild game animal is for many of us something that is tough to pass up. It is because of its appetizing nature that wild game is sought year after year by hunters who spend time pursuing such a feast. When hunting season rolls around, we outfit ourselves in camo and set out with our weapon of choice in order to secure some meat for the freezer. Although actually hunting wild game is a deliberate process, sometimes mere happenstance brings it into our lives in a much hastier...
  12. Establishing Tactical Firearms Skills

    There has been a lot of talk recently in our society about guns. Some argue that guns are bad and should be banned while others hold tightly to their second amendment rights. No matter which camp you belong to, one thing we can hopefully all agree on is that a gun in the right hands is a valuable self-defense tool. When faced with a threat to yourself or others, being able to quickly and efficiently neutralize it can save lives, and a gun is often the best way to handle such threats. The key...
  13. Consumable Items to Safely Stockpile for the Long Haul

    If you've ever worried about the true shelf life of food items in your survival stockpile, you are not alone. Although many products available today come with expiration dates printed directly on the packaging, how much can you really trust those dates? At some point you may have experienced some type of food item that went bad before it's prime or, on the other hand, risked it with something that had been on the shelf a little too long and lived to tell the tale. With these things in mind,...
  14. Re-purposing an Ammo Can for Cooking

    When planning for TEOTWAWKI, a pressing issue is always food. It is important to have enough of it and be able to properly store it, ideally without wasting anything. In order to achieve this, we focus largely on non-perishable food items such as canned goods and anything else with an extended shelf life. As we are stockpiling such items, however, we are still putting things in the refrigerator at the same time. If the SHTF tomorrow, how much refrigerator and freezer food would you end up...
  15. Riding the Storm Out in a Storm Shelter

    The weather has been doing strange things in recent times. If you've been following your local forecast, you may have been having days that are warmer than usual for this time of year. Extended weather forecasts have been showing interesting weather expectations as well, some of which differ from what is the norm for some places. A good example of this is tornadoes forecast to occur outside of a normal window of time when they are usually seen. While this could be attributed to a lot of...
