Monday Mania – 5.16.2016

Welcome to another week of Monday Mania!

I’m starting this week out with an interesting idea that I have been tossing around in my head for a long time.

I have been a guest on a couple of podcasts but I really would like to start one of my own. The thing that has been stopping me is the fact that I would like it to be interactive, meaning at least having one other person to discuss topics with. I would even love it if it became a round table type discussion.

That said, I have no candidates in mind so I would like to open up this opportunity to you all. As readers of the blog here, you probably have a bit of an idea of what I am about. My vision is to do a podcast that is an hour or less, once a week. We can record at a mutually beneficial time (hopefully) like the evening or weekend. I’m game either way!

If I seem like someone you could work with, and this seems like something that you are potentially interested in, please shoot me an email at tom@thepreparedninja.com with the subject “podcast.”

As far as the last week has been, it seems like we are spending a lot of time at my house just trying to get by. It is almost like we never really gain any ground because we are always just spinning our wheels trying to keep up with today.

When the opportunity presents itself, I am determined to adjust my lifestyle to live more intentionally. Instead of living to work, I want to work to live. As long as my basic needs are met and I have a secure foothold on life, why is there a need to do more at work? Unless I am working on my own project, why would I continue to put my health, my family, etc. on the line?

That sounds good right? We will see what happens but I know that I can make it happen. It’s just a matter of how soon I can do so.

Thank you all for your support! I appreciate all of you who continue to read and show an interest in what I do. Even if it is only once in a blue moon. More than anything, I hope that my work at least helps someone become more prepared for a difficult time.

I hope y’all have a blessed week!

-Tom

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

How to Make Gunpowder the Old Fashioned Way – Definitely a great skill to learn but the process seems to be long and smelly. DO NOT miss out on the download link for the Improvised Munitions Handbook.

Turn a Car Battery Into an Emergency Power Source For the Home – Here is a quick primer on how to use a car battery as an emergency power source. I’m not smart on electricity though so I am not sure how long this will last. If you do know the answer, please leave a comment for us all.

Raw Venezuela: Looter Burned Alive, While “Streets Filled With People Killing Animals For Food” – This is a good example to share with those who don’t necessarily buy into the idea of emergency preparedness.

How to Tie a Monkey’s Fist to Weight a Throwing Line

Enemy at the gates: Preparing for a Hillary Clinton presidency – This is an article that I wrote for personalliberty.com. You can catch my monthly contribution there on the 3rd Monday of every month.

9 Reasons Why Every Prepper Should Have a Stash of Alcohol (Even if you don’t drink)

15 Explosive Recipes for Preppers – This is absolutely for informational purposes only. Any science experiments you try to do are on you. The Prepared Ninja does not condone use of any of this information.

Prepper Candidate Appeals to “Americans Deeply Concerned About What Is Coming”

ITS Tactical – The Grey Man Concept, Consumable Gear and Pairing Cigars with Scotch

MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:

“Unconstitutional”: Federal Judge Rules Obamacare Illegally Funded Without Congress Authorization – Hopefully, the truth will set us free from our ObamaCare nightmare.

Presidents Are Selected not Elected: Rothschilds Hold $100,000 Per Plate Fundraiser for Guess Who – This should really not come as a surprise.

$15 Minimum Wage Forces Wendy’s to Introduce Self-Service Kiosks

Monday Mania – 2.29.2016

In this weeks edition of Monday Mania: 20 Steps: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Prepper, 101 Frugal Items You Need For Survival, Thinking of Starting a Prepper Network? Think Again!, DIY $20 Survival Food Bucket, How Dependent Are You On Electricity?, & 15 More

Monday Mania – 2.29.2016

It is officially the last 29th of February until 2020! I have seen a large number of errors being made when writing the date today. There are a bunch of people who want it to be March already.

There is not much to report for me this week.

I worked, I played, and I got soaked trying to fix the shower. I don’t know what I was thinking but I over tightened the screw that controls the water. When I went to loosen it, I turned the water on and it sprayed all over me. Luckily, I still have pretty good reflexes and I was able to limit the amount of water that covered me. If nothing else, it was good for a laugh.

My oldest son has battled some medical problems for almost a decade now. This week has been pretty good for him. It’s probably the best week he has had in the last year and a half. We have seen great improvement in his personality and demeanor. This is truly a blessing from God. We have struggled to get to this point. I pray that things continue down this path. Your prayers are always appreciated as well.

 

I hope that y’all have a great week!

MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:

20 Steps: The Ultimate Guide to Becoming a Prepper – This is not a supply list. These 20 steps are actionable and a great way to establish your emergency preparedness.

101 Frugal Items You Need For Survival – Affordability is a key component to purchasing supplies and gear. I like this list because it is no nonsense and straight to the point.

Thinking of Starting a Prepper Network? Think Again! – An interesting look at the pitfalls of forming a mutual assistance group (MAG) or prepper network. I’m still going to stick with my thoughts that community is the only way to overcome a crisis.

DIY $20 Survival Food Bucket – $20 for a bucket of food? I’m in! There is some good information here about the value of storing real food and how to do so.

How Dependent Are You On Electricity? – Have you ever stopped to really evaluate the number of items that are used on a daily basis and plan what you would do if those items were not available? This article covers many of those every day items and provides some suggestions on how to work around not having a dependable source of electricity.

Practical Preparedness- Simple steps you can take today to prepare your family for whatever may come

Prepper’s Threat Analysis – Establishing Prepping Priorities – Always have a firm grasp on what may come next and what you need to do to be prepared for it.

How to Organize a Bug Out Bag

How This Man Converted “Underground Shelter Using a 20 Ft. Shipping Container”

Atlanta Business Owner Gives All of His Employees a Gun – I personally like this idea but, I could see how (especially in our world today) this could lead to future problems for Mr. Toland. After all, “they made me do something against my beliefs” is a great foundation for a lawsuit these days.

God forbid, the complainant happens to also be LGBTQ or a Muslim. How dare they have to carry a weapon. It’s the religion of peace. (That is not what I was thinking when a Muslim was shooting at us with an AK-47 in the middle east.) It all would just make better fodder for the MSM.

This Is How Government Dealt With Dissent And Revolt In Collapsing Venezuela – “Soldiers Shooting Civilians In The Streets, Paramilitaries Roaming Neighborhoods”

Utilizing 12v DC Systems for Primary or Emergency Power – An interesting perspective on using an alternator as the center of an off grid power system. I can see the advantages but you will still need a motor of some type.

MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:

Is Political Correctness Literally Killing Our Society?

Obama Opens the Border to More STDs – This is only part of what scares me about my children’s, and future generations, wellbeing. Even if they escape the atrocities that are overcoming our world, as we continue to accept things (after all, they are treatable), it is only going to increase the rate of occurrence of these diseases.

WHY DO WE DO THIS TO OURSELVES?!?!?!?!?!

Mega Retailers Close Stores: Hard to Shop “When People Are Just Trying to Pay Their Mortage” – My expectation is that this is only a preview of what is to come. I recommend taking a look at The Alpha Strategy and making a plan to invest in your future with physical goods as they become harder and harder to obtain in local areas.

Germany Admits They Have Lost Track of 130,000 Refugees – Whether the numbers are accurate or not, this is a legitimate concern. I think that this gives us a preview of what is to come. No one could definitively say where all of the immigrants and visa holders (current and lapsed) are at in the U.S., right?

Zuckerberg’s Virtual Reality Photo: Our Future in the Matrix – This is really not that far fetched. We certainly are headed in a direction where this is probable.

TIN FOIL HAT TIME?

Beware Twitter Users: Your Tweets Help the Government Predict the Future – I would not doubt it.
