Monday Mania

I’m not in a chatty mood at the moment so I will get right to it. Things are bad. Plain and simple. I have always suffered from being a pessimist but I almost feel somewhat justified by how things are going right now. Some of my concerns include:

  • A crappy global economy.
  • Jobs being shipped overseas.
  • Uncontrolled government spending.
  • America is a net import country and it’s only getting worse.
  • Outrageous and undeserved entitlements.
  • Genetically modified foods.
  • Growing food to make into things other than food.
  • Government regulations that increasingly prevent citizens from doing…almost anything.
  • Societal unrest.
  • Mistrust of the police in some areas.
  • Misuse of government regulations to pursue an agenda.
  • The implementation of executive orders to achieve an agenda.
  • The use of the media by the government to be a mouthpiece for propaganda.
  • Government funding used overseas in breathtaking amounts and not usually in a way that will benefit the nation.
  • Reduction of the end strength of the military with ongoing to commitments overseas, including two wars that have been officially ended but we continue to fight in them anyway.
  • The fact that we allowed ISIS to turn into what it is today.
  • Our open borders that continue to have people filter rapidly through them. Many believe it is people from Mexico but that is not the case. Mexicans don’t leave prayer rugs and copies of the Quran in the desert.
  • Obamacare
  • The Eavesdroppers (NSA, CIA, and Assorted Friends)
  • The grand illusion that politicians actually care about what their constituents think and what their desires are.
  • Militarized police forces who now have the equipment that is the equivalent to the that of the modern fighting force in the military.
  • Disappearing liberty and personal freedoms a la Patriot Act.
  • And just because…The TSA

If at least a few of those things don’t scare you, then you are part of the problem.

Don’t forget to smile!

Only A Few Days Left…

B.R.O. Inventory Blowout

I just wanted to share a few notes with you and remind you that there are only a few days left to take advantage of the Black River Outpost Inventory Blowout sale. Saturday is the last day of February and the last day of the sale. Get your low cost prepping supplies while the getting is good!

News and Notes

Here’s a few interesting bits of prepper related news that should provide you with a little entertainment

When the apocalypse comes, preppers will be ready. But you won’t (The Guardian) – Here is an interesting article written by a “journalist” that obviously has a particular view about prepping. Unfortunately, it seems as if this is another situation where those with views that may be a little “off the grid” have influenced his perspective. I thought it was worth sharing because it is interesting to see how others view preparedness. (Warning – Adult Language)

Nat Geo’s prepper fortress Doomsday Castle now renting rooms

Would you shell out $1500 for a Taurus Judge in a fancy case?

Patriot Playing Cards is a new project being launched by the crew of Conflicted: The Survival Card Game. Check out their project on Kickstarter.

California Dems push to repeal ‘welfare queen’ law – Child poverty is too much of a problem so California wants to repeal a law that limits the amount of money a welfare recipient can receive regardless of the number of children the individual has. My take on this is that there are certain people who want to reward others for their irresponsibility at the expense of those who are working to provide for themselves and their own families. Really? It makes me sad and scares me that there are people who think this is a good idea.

Rant and link sharing complete. I hope your week is going well. Leave a comment or shoot me an email at tom@thepreparedninja.com if there is anything I can help you with or if there is something you think I should know.

A Few Questions

Earlier today I was asked a few questions that caused me to stop and think about the political climate that we are coping with here in the United States. It makes me wonder if the government is truly acting in the interests of WE the people as a whole, or doing what they can to produce the votes that will keep them in office. I thought the questions were worth posting here.

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a FEW lunatics.

2. We constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, eliminating pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments to illegal aliens. This is what illegal’s receive monthly: $1500.00 per child, $500 for housing, Food Stamps, Free education including college and the right to vote.

Interesting, right? What are your thoughts?
