Monday Mania – 2.15.2016
It’s looking like a good week is ahead for me (crossing my fingers). With the President’s Day holiday today, I am looking at only having to work four days which will be nice. I also got to spend more time with my family because of the three day weekend. I’ll take what I can get.
I hope that y’all have a great week!
MY FINDS FOR LAST WEEK:
How to Make a Solar Generator – While putting together a solar energy system will cost you some money, the ability to produce energy almost anywhere you go, at any time is invaluable.
5 Things Everyone Can Learn From The U.S. Army Survival Manual – I wrote this article for Personal Liberty to share some of the many things that we can all learn from the U.S. Army Survival Manual. While there are 5 things listed here, that hardly scratches the surface.
If you are interested in buying a copy of the U.S. Army Survival Manual for your preparedness library, please consider supporting my friends at Black River Outpost and buy your copy here.
Survival Caches: The Ultimate Back-Up Plan – To be honest, because of the nature of my work, I do not have any caches in place anywhere. If things change will I start stashing things? I couldn’t tell you for sure. I will probably always have some apprehension about taking anything that my life may depend on and burying it in the ground. But, what is the point of a cache? To take supplies that may save your life and bury them in the ground or hide them elsewhere. Only time will tell.
5 Essential Emergency Protocols For Family Members Who Are Apart – There is probably not enough that could be said about the importance of communication…especially during an emergency.
The Whole Thing is About To Come Unhinged: 6 Ways To Prepare For the Next Collapse – Are we really that close? Some of the signs are there and no shortage exists when it comes to things to be concerned over.
What Guns? What Gold? Prepper Tips On “Hiding Your Guns in Plain Sight” – With an election scheduled, this is timely.
John McCain Joins Call To Register Women For The Draft – This is not really about a “draft” but the selective service. As a male who, in order to follow the letter of the law (whether you agree or not), registered for the selective service, I don’t think this thought process is far off at all.
That said, with the calls for the equal treatment of all women it does not seem to be unreasonable at all. After all, if a women can do everything I can do, and deserve to be treated the same as me, then it is not unreasonable to ask for a female to fill out piece of paper…just like I had to.
This is my opinion after having served alongside my brothers and sisters-in-arms in the Army for well over a decade.
On the other side of the coin (which I actually like better), there is a bi-partisan group of lawmakers that would like to scrap the draft system all together. This is probably the best idea. Why continue to spend $23,000,000 a year for a system that is not likely to be used. If we reach a point where a draft is needed, we can just start it up like it was done before.
MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:
TIN FOIL HAT TIME?
Are Americans too insouciant to survive? – I can admit, I had to look up what insouciant meant. It happens to mean:
showing a casual lack of concern; indifferent
synonyms: nonchalant, untroubled, unworried, unruffled, unconcerned, indifferent, heedless, careless
Some of this may have some sound theory behind it but I do know this, a vote for Hillary Clinton OR Bernie Sanders is a vote for the death penalty for America.
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.
