  • Bugging In

    Frequently discussed are the items you need to bug out. You have your BOB and contents fully thought out, planning to utilize every square inch of space in your bag, figuring how to make the least amount of items go the furthest survival distance. You've considered how to keep your load as light as possible to make carrying easier when it comes time to move fast and practice the art of evasion. But what if you don't have to move fast or evade? What if the problem at hand does not require...
  • Survival Prepping for Your Car: Supplies You Should Have Inside

    Some might say that a man's car is his castle and in a lot of cases that has been proven true. Because we spend so much time in our cars, it is only natural that they become a sort of extension of our homes and are stocked accordingly with survival supplies. Having useful items in your vehicle makes perfect sense when you consider travelling through unfamiliar and often sparsely populated areas. On every road trip, be it across the country or across town, exists the possibility for something...
  • Utilizing the Marine Special Operations PT Guide

    No one knows preparedness like the Marines. They face things in combat that other mere mortals cannot imagine or comprehend. Because of this, they are the authority on preparedness for when (not if) the SHTF. There shared wisdom is available for download via their website, and you should consider printing yourself a copy of The Marine Special Operatons Training Guide for when (not if) the lights go out. Certain things are priceless in a survival situation, and this guide is very much one of...
  • Survival Uses for Petroleum Jelly

    One of the many items that can be and has been proven useful in survival situations time and time again is petroleum jelly (also known as Vaseline). With its medicinal, hygienic, and emergency uses, tossing a container of petroleum jelly in your pack may prove useful many times over. Here's why: Petroleum jelly is flammable. It makes for an easy fire starter; all you have to do is dip a cotton ball or some paper in it and ignite. If the only thing standing between you and getting soaked is...
  • 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...
  1. A Crossroad is on the Horizon

    We are approaching a crossroad in America There was a point in America where the watchwords were, “The only good Indian is a dead Indian.” There were many reasons for that. One being, and probably the most paramount of those, was the fact that Indians killed, butchered, and mutilated everyone including women and children. There was hardly a day that went by people found what was left by the destruction the Indians left behind them when they raided a ranch, farm, or small town. Most...
  2. Know Your History before you make a judgement

    Just in case some of the people want to know about history before attempting to rewrite it. Here is some food for thought in these troubling times. All of this is fact and is a matter of public record. THE CIVIL WAR WAS NEVER ABOUT SLAVERY. It was a ruse. A ploy. To make the North look better in the court of public opinion. I got an A+++++++ in Mr. Marcos 8th grade Social Studies essay contest where he told me it was the best essay he'd ever read. Based on facts. Remember, when it was...
  3. Tired of the Anarchy

    This is what most of us thinking Americans know: The anarchists and BLM are going to go nuts in November and that is when the proverbial you know what will hit the fan. This is coming to a head and the reason it has escalated is that Democrats allowed it to happen, and encouraged it. Then they refused to prosecute. They will pay not only in losing their jobs in November but when the shooting starts to get serious, their blood will join those who believe they are untouchable. The word racism...
  4. Remembering what it used to be like

    I’m old enough to remember the Civil Rights activists, the white lines painted on the floors in the buses, the “Whites Only” signs everywhere in the south. There was change of course, and it came at a price of murders, beatings, arsons, civil discord, riots, and much more too lengthy to describe here fully. It taught me a lesson I only read about prior to this era happening and the time frame where I lived. This is that message; read it loud and clear; The only civil change that will happen...
  5. We are destroying our culture and country by our vote

    I don’t consider myself anyone special or exceptional. I’m simply an old guy who has managed to get by in a world full of vipers, thieves and liars successfully. I am much like you in that I consider myself lucky, because, I managed to make it through the thick of it one more day. I’ve been lucky; I’ve been around the world a couple of times, largely without any serious mishaps. During those travels it has been my fortune to have met a lot of different people. Most of them were just like...
  6. The real world.

    This was sent to me by a friend recently. She is a bright young Medical Doctor today. It isn't meant to cast aspersions on anyone, it is simply a fact of life. I hope it is read and taken in that light. What I Learned in the Peace Corps in Africa: Trump Is Right! By Karin? January 17, 2018 Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was,...
  7. A Worldwide Depression May Be Coming

    Could it really happen? Let's take a look at a few facts and see if that's possible. The world standard today is the dollar. I live close to Panama and they don’t use anything but the dollar. No matter where you go in the world, everybody accepts the dollar as payment for every sort of goods imaginable. You cannot do that with all currency, that is to say, travel worldwide, and spend another country’s currency in stores, and other places in a different country other than your own. Here in...
  8. "The Gift of Time"

    Something to think about. The last wishes of Alexander the Great........ On his deathbed, Alexander summoned his army generals and told them his three ultimate wishes: 1. The best doctors should carry his coffin ... 2. The wealth he has accumulated (money, gold, precious stones) should be scattered along the procession to the cemetery .... 3. His hands should be let loose, so they hang outside the coffin for all to see! One of his generals who was surprised by these unusual requests...
  9. Reflections

    Not often these days do I reflect on what I am and how I got here, but I did today. I thought about the water that has flowed past the old bridge everyone talks about and I decided to reflect for a moment here living out the last of my life in a warm climate. First, as I looked into the eyes of the woman I have shared these past forty-seven years with. I realized what a wondrous gift God has allowed me to have being with her. I didn’t realize it so much at one time, but awhile ago I did...
  10. Our Nation is Broken

    Let me justify this statement by offering some glaring examples of where America stands today as viewed by other Americans in the world: Our schools are broken. They teach anti-American rhetoric to the young impressionable students by people who are embedded in a Marxist culture. The mindset where American values, cultures, and accomplishments are disparaged on a regular basis. Rather than teach how great America is for its wondrous and monumental accomplishments, many teachers chose as...
  11. Equal Justice Under the Law

    Until our laws are equally applied to ALL people, regardless of their station in life, our country will never be safe from lawlessness. If you do the crime, it is long pastime you get indicted, criminally charged, and are required as we all are to hire an attorney, and suffer the process all the way to the end. If you are found guilty of treason, when it is all done and over with, you should be legally hanged by your neck until you are dead. Consequences are what make the laws work for...
  12. A Rose Speaks of Love

    A rose speaks of love silently in a language known only to the heart. When you give roses to her, the thought is eternal and the perfume is endless. She will know the gift is from the heart when it is roses. I sent my Nancy eleven roses when I first met her. She was a ballerina and was dancing with a New York Ballet Company, I was a Crop Duster Pilot, the competition was tough for her attention. My enclosed card read, "Regretfully I could not find a twelfth as beautiful as you, so I had to...
  13. Civil War is Coming to America

    At this late date it is inevitable. Because of a number of factors that are ongoing in the US President Trump will most likely be the last Republican President to be elected to office in the near future that is, until the next Civil War has run its course. Here is why: Illegal Immigration is one of the major catalysts that will end a free and legal election in America. The deck is being stacked right now to make sure the Democrats will win from now on. They will steal every election in the...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
