Sheeple Question and Answer

Here’s how this goes. I’m not quite free from the system but am working toward it every single day. Soon…very soon. Person 1: “I hate my job.  I sit in traffic every day, commuting to a cubicle which might as well be a prison cell.” Person 2: “Why do you do that?” Person 1: “I …

The Economic Collapse of 2010, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16…

Here we go again, rumors of the “big one” floating around the interwebs on various sites.  Analysis by experts and computer models point to some event this fall and if not then, surely by the beginning of next year.  This time it’s for real, no really.  I mean forget about all of those other times …

Rest in Peace Girl, Thank You So Much.

One month ago I wrote this post as our oldest dog and long time member of the family was nearing the end of her time with us.  Being the feisty dog that she is, she held on for much longer than I thought she would…passing away just a couple hours ago in our bed next …

Nightmare: Shots Fired Into Your Vehicle At 70 MPH

Picture this, you are cruising along after a long day at work while jamming out to some tunes when your back and side window explodes, glass shatters into your vehicle and complete chaos erupts.  If it sounds like something out of a war zone (ambush) it’s not, as a matter of fact it just happened …

My Dog Is Dying: A Reality I Can Barely Stomach.

I consider myself a well traveled person.  I’ve been to the other side of the earth, I’ve been exposed to things that would make most people cringe and took it in stride because I was supposed to.  I’ve done things and seen things and been stoic about it, yadda yadda….blah blah blah.  Whatever.  Yet my …

Prepper + Vacation = Wise?

Think about what it’s like to feel completely exposed and vulnerable and then try to combine that with the concept of trying to get some must needed rest and relaxation with the family.  You might think that sounds crazy, to me it sounds more like taking a vacation. I should probably define the type of …

It’s Hard to be a DEDICATED Prepper These Days!

I’ll be the first to admit that prepping hasn’t been at the top of my list in the last few weeks.  Winter is losing it’s grip on us and I’ve been planning for Spring and Summer of 2015, and my plans don’t involve anything remotely related to prepping.  Family vacations, motorcycle trips, projects around the …

People are Crazy

Figured I’ve had this blog long enough I can post whatever I want.  Friday’s random video: People are crazy.  If you don’t like it, go put your head into a pile of drywall for all I care.  Enjoy the weekend! God is great, Beer is good, People are crazy.   Print PDF

Hilarious Armlist.com Post (M855 Green Tip)

If you’ve been paying attention you’ll already know about the potential ban by the BATFE on M855 “Green Tip” Ammo.  I wrote about this a few days ago and have since been searching Armslist.com to take a gander at some of the price gouging attempts.  Today’s nationwide search revealed this gem of a post which …

Theory is one thing, REALITY is another…

Many moons ago on my first deployment overseas I saw a grown man curl up in ball and cry.  This was something I had not anticipated, he seemed like a strong and knowledgeable combat arms non-commissioned officer and leader of men.  It only took 2 months in the spring of 2003 in Iraq to break …

Life Is Good: Make Like A Squirrel

Life is good right now if you live in America, relatively speaking and according to most mainstream media outlets.  The DOW keeps punching through all time highs, gas prices are low, jobs are being added while unemployment is dropping.  Inflation is low and optimism is high, credit is once again plentiful and you too can …

2015: More Of The Same.

I’d like to be able to sit here and make 50 predictions, some bold and some bland with the hopes that a certain percentage actually occur.  After all doesn’t a blind squirrel find a nut every now and then?  It would be especially helpful if some of the predictions centered around high risk events which …

Back to the Future: Before Prepping Was Cool.

My oh my.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  Back when the financial crisis hit people started prepping in droves, the need to be prepared for the unknown sparked a surge in the community.  After all the market was crashing and people were losing their jobs left and right, the gubmit …

Stupid / Ignorant People Look For Trouble

I was recently on a forum and read about the ISIS threat to US Service members.  In the thread one poster mentioned how, when his subordinates found out that ISIS was targeting US Service Members they rushed home to post up maps to their own homes.  As if to entice ISIS members to attempt to …

Reasons I Don’t Let People Borrow My Knife

There are two phrases I don’t like to hear: Can I borrow your knife? Do you have a knife I can borrow? Usually the answer to the first one is: “what do you plan to cut?” followed by “sorry, no.”  The answer to the second one is usually similar to my first answer.  Here’s the …
