Monday Mania – 2.22.2016
It seems hard to believe that it has been a week already since the last Monday Mania. Last week was nice because of the holiday on Monday. I wish I could work a four day work week every week. At this point it does not look like that will happen anytime soon, if ever.
Aside from a busy week at work, I mostly hung out with family and did a little woodworking. My two youngest sons (6 & 10) have been playing with the Nerf dart guns in the neighborhood with some other kids and they insisted that they needed a riot shield, like the ones used by the police, to block enemy fire. It was fun and they are enjoying them so that is all that matters. If I can remember, I will post a picture of one next week.
I also have a future project in mind that will require a fair quantity of 2 x 4 dimensional lumber. This is not horrifically expensive but it will cost money. I noticed there were two houses that were being framed not too far from our house so I waiting until the completion of the framing and then asked the crew if I could help myself to their “trash.” I was able to salvage quite a few pieces of 2 x 4. This is something to keep in mind when working on projects of your own, not everything has to be new all the time and why spend money on something that you could get for free?
Maybe I am just practicing my salvaging skills for the post-apocalyptic world.
I hope that y’all have a great week!
MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:
4 Steps to True Freedom and Independence – While short and to the point, if you can master these four steps you will probably end up better off than 99% of the rest of the population.
China Buying US Farmland and The Lesson of Hengist and Vortigern – A good warning to heed. But don’t worry, I don’t think that Americans will wake up until it is already too late. It’s already not looking good and I can only imagine what it will look like going forward.
Here is more information on the Consolidation and Collectivization of American Agriculture.
The Role of Religion in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election – This is a very interesting look at how religious beliefs are shifting in the United States and how this will play a role in the presidential election this year. Reading this, my thoughts immediately shifted to the Pilgrims and how this shift could eventually lead to a similar scenario for Christians in America. Not by coincidence, the speaker in this case is also the author of a book titled, The End of White Christian America.
Food Freedom: Backyard Strategies You Can Try Today – You will notice that this ties in with the link above about true freedom and independence,
Agrihoods: The Self Sufficient Alternative to Suburbia – Those of you who do not care for golf will not have an issue with this concept.
“You Should Be Very Worried, You Should Be Prepared” Warns Jim Rogers – It is warnings like these that further encourage my belief in the Alpha Strategy.
Collapsing Venezuela Is Out of Food: “Prepping Became Illegal”, Long Lines Mandatory – Learn from others and take appropriate actions to avoid a similar situation in your own life.
27 Basecamp Projects Guaranteed to Elevate Skills and Fun in the Woods – I am definitely going to try carve a spoon. I just need a tree. Maybe the neighbors won’t notice?
It’s Getting Crazy Out There – Don’t Be Distracted! An Open Letter to Family & Friends – I may have shared this before but if I did, it is still worth sharing again.
MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:
Tyrannical System Sentences 4-Year-Old Boy to Life in Prison for Alleged Crimes When He Was 1 – I don’t know how true this is but if it is true, this is absolute insanity!
Top German Prosecutor Angrily Confirms Majority of New Year’s Eve Rapists WERE Refugees – Let’s open up the borders, right?
“Allahu Akbar!”: Machete Attack on Ohio Restaurant Was a Downplayed Muslim Terrorist Attack – It’s no big deal. A machete can’t really hurt anyone. It’s the guns we need to go after. Maybe it’s just time to make everything illegal?
TIN FOIL HAT TIME?
North America, Time for a New Focus – This is a project that was chaired by General (RET) David Petraeus and focused on the importance of a North American alliance to sustain our position in the world and how working with our neighbors to the north and south is the ticket to doing so successfully.
On a side note, General Petraeus is the greatest leader that I have ever worked for. Aside from any transgressions, I would not hesitate to follow him just about anywhere.
That’s a wrap for me this week. As always, I hope that you all have a great week and keep getting ready for tough times. It seems like we get closer every day to something unfortunate coming along.
