Not Listening
Yes, I know you and your family are buying M-16 (AR-15) series rifles, instead of SKS rifles.

That's O.K. because every family makes their own decisions.

Well, ...

Just make sure, you and your partner are inspecting it.

AK-74
This one is for fun, unless you live really, really close to the Russian Federation then it's not such a stupid poor idea.

Let me explain, ...

The AK-47 uses a cartridge that isn't made in these United States. It's made in ... Russia, Ukraine, and other places like that.

This means, you and your family have to stock lots and lots of ammunition to insure a secure supply of cartridges.

Because, ... ?

Ammunition and magazines are consumables. Without 'em, your rifle is a club, an expensive one at that.

Oooh, ...
Just to show you how popular the M-16 and AK-47 series rifles are, here in these United States.

Middle Class
Here's a neat link for you and your family to consider where you're at in these United States.

Ooh, ...

If you're in the so-called Middle Class and not getting prepared for what's ahead, you're worrying about the wrong stuff.

An Alternative
Buying the rental isn't going to work out. The house has too much damage for the price, so back to square one for me.

With that said, ..

The objective was to have another house that we controlled. This would allow my family to flee most problems.

The house had a decent basement (it was dry), so I could cache certain items. You know the basics, water, food, medical supplies, firearms and ammunition, clothing, bedding (sheets, pillows, pillow cases, and blankets), and other stuff.

It would have been tight with the renters still there, but we would have owned the house.

Remember, ...

You and your family travel to a place that knows you're coming, not the national forest, with certain supplies and equipment cached, so you can arrive with the clothes on your back.

Volume Four: Number Thirty-Eight


Réunion de Famille
Frédéric Bazille
(1867)

The End, ... For Now
My wife and I have been thinking about purchasing a rental house. The house would be used to provide shelter, during the week, for me.

Needless to say, ... We are on a budget, a tight budget. This means I would be responsible to complete the repairs and upgrades, to add value to the house.

Guess what will happen?

With that said, ...

Did you hear the economy is going to collapse in 2019? How about 2020?

So, ...

What are you and your family doing about it?

Things You Might Want to Think About

Attack
They forgot some things, ...

The murders were Muslims. They killed many innocents in their attack.

The attack was used as an excuse to reduce our Liberties, by both Democrats and Republicans.

Bipolar
Ha, ha, ha.

I love the popular press with their talk of doom and gloom, no matter what happens!

Crowds
You need to listen to Ol' Remus, so ...

Stay Away From Crowds

Florence
It ain't over, by a long shot 

History
First, .. China is a bigger threat to Russia then these United States. The Russians know this for a fact.

Second, ... The Chinese and soviets were allies for many years in the late '40s and early '50s

Third, ... A lot of intelligence analysts are going to be working overtime

Leadership
Some folks are laughing about this award.

Not me because she has called for the murder of our political leader!

You know where that leads.

Living Wage
Thought you could use some good news about instituting a living wage.

Money
Remember, ...

Cash is King! when the disasters strike.

Nazis
At first, everyone agreed with them (O.K., not really, but it was close)

Next, they targeted one or two groups as 'The Problem.'

Next, they banned some books, burned them, then went after the  problem.

Lastly, 10,000,000 people died because of the Socialists in Germany. 10,000,000 people died in Russia because of the Socialists. 10,000,000 people died in China because of the Socialists.

Will 10,000,000 people die in these United States because of the Socialists?

Options
Did you notice?

It's a charter school, so parents can take their children out of the school, if they disagree with the policy.

Racists
Wow, .. Where is everyone when a cartoonist draws a so-called white guy with big lips and weird hair?

Sophistication
Folks, criminals are smarter than you think.

Technology
It is a two-edged sword. It can be used for freedom.

And, ...

It can be used for oppression

War
Yes, Folks. These United States and a lot of other countries are still at war with North Korea.


Overheard

"none"

"Beneath Yellowstone lies an active volcano with the ability to change the global climate for years and trigger an extinction event."

"heavy-metal diplomacy"

"After years of trying to demolish former President Barack Obama’s prized law, GOP leaders still lack the votes to succeed."

"Only time will tell."

"The intoxicating effects of benevolence help to explain the growing appeal of politically correct attitudes about everything from “the environment” to the fate of the Third World."

"silent donation."

"Faced with the current disquiet and a lack of alternatives, many voters will simply choose the party that is currently out of power to lodge their protest, even though Democrats are really in power in all but name only."
