I am a veteran of these United States' military, and today is not my day.
It is the day of PFC. Tyler R. Lubelt, and Spc. Kyle E. Gilbert; Sgt. Joshua P. Rodgers and Staff Sgt. Alexandria M Morrow; 1st Lt. Anais A. Tobar and Lt Col. Flando Elix Jackson; and many, many others .
Such people as Specialist Andrews, killed in 1982, or Sergeant Jones killed about 1986, both while on active duty. Men that will never grow old and be forever young in the memories of their family, friends, and comrades in arms
Don't thank a veteran, today. It's insulting.
Do remember, the ultimate sacrifice our women and men have made that have died while on active duty.
Doom and Gloom
The Big One
Total Informational Awareness
Things You Might Want to Think About
I don't know everything. Heck, I don't know a lot of things.
I do know, ... People are lying to the country.
I bet you thought this had gone away.
It is said, 'Give a villain enough time, and they will take everything in your home.'
Well, we need to add to that ...
Give a hacker a challenge, and they will unlock any computer system.
I would like to add, ...
With his hand out, looking for a hand out; The Mayor of Chicago said 'It's o.k. to break the law, if you think it's worth it to protect your family or yourself for economic reasons.'
Watch out the villains have permission to shoot you, from the 'god-father.'
Small dogs are probably the best home security system for a prepper. They don't eat a lot or take up a lot of space. Plus, they don't have a bad reputation like pitbulls or other large dogs.
Well, ... We might need to change that.
$40,000,000,000 a year divided by 40,000,000 comes out to $1,000 a year per person.
Until you start thinking, 'What kind of healthcare can you purchase for $1,000?'
Oooh, ... I'm not talking about insurance cause it's so-called single-payer. I talking about doctor visits, operations, medications, eyeglasses, and all the other medical you will need for one year.
Please, take time to read the speech, and remember, ...
When any person calls us to defy our national government, they are invoking a call to rebellion that was violently crushed in 1865.
A rebellion that believed one person was better then another. That a person should be bound to work for another person. That a person should be given rights based on a person's place at birth.
Ooops, ... I think 'Southern Ideals' did win. Just not in the way, they had expected.
Close one door and the villains will find another door to open.
So, ... It's only going to get worst.
The only problem, The terrorists have won. We just don't know it, yet.
"... having a lot of nuclear weapons is safer from a “first-strike stability” point of view than having few."
"I’m coming to the conclusion that we’re getting beyond a political struggle of ideas, and that scares me because this country was always about a political struggle of ideas. The only time it turned violence was over the question of slavery, and one has to admit that’s a pretty big idea. Today’s meme wars are vapid, ignorant, and shallow."
"They believe that they are just expressing Right Values."
"Even more disturbing to me personally, as someone who registered as a Democrat back in 1972, are the disgraceful and dangerous ideas emanating from the university world, which is universally dominated by the Left."

Men's dormitory at night at the homeless men's bureau (for unattached men). Unemployment is the primary cause of their being here. This unemployment has been the direct cause of broken homes, through divorce and incompatibility. Most of the men are willing to work if they could find it. Average age fifty-two. Most of the men are from the urban districts

Dear Preppers and Survivalists,
Last week, I covered some of the so-called primitive shelters that you and your family could use to survive an event, if you lost everything during a disaster.
But, ... What happens "If" nothing happens
For now, most places on our planet are seeing relative peace. Add folks ability to deal with everyday events, your family will probably be able to stay in your home, for a very long time.
So, ... Let's talk about what you and your partner should be looking for in a home.
Folks are going to flip, but those 'normal,' everyday concerns, like good schools, low taxes, nice neighborhood, and such are going to be important for you and your partner. Add a low interest rate mortgage, you and your family may be in nirvana.
You also need to look for a neighborhood that is the same 'clan,' ethnic group, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, or other cohesive factor that will allow easy acceptance by the community.
As much as you and your partner would like to move to a mixed 'race' area for the vibe, Don't Do It!
There isn't any 'unless' because moving to a 'mixed' neighborhood could be the death of you and your family. Just look at the problems in Iraq, with different sects of the same religion, murder and mayhem. The same goes for different 'races,' think Rwanda with 800,00 killed in only 100 days.
I haven't even gotten into the problems here in these United States, like Chicago, L.A., or East St. Louis.
Now, don't get me wrong. If you're 'black' with a 'white' partner, and you live in a 'white' neighborhood with your mixed 'race' children, and you're the only one, you will be accepted, even, during an event.
But, ... Start adding a bunch of other 'black' people, you're going to be in trouble!
Now, if you reverse the situation, a 'white' in a 'black' neighborhood, you need to be leaving sooner than later because 'blacks' don't like 'whites.' Especially when you're the minority.
Doors and Windows
I apologize, about that. Most people already know that little tidbit of information.
So, ... Lets go in another direction.
Next, you need to update your home with items that will increase its ability to stay warm or cool, depending on the season. This means taking a look at the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), windows (double pane), doors (insulated steel), attic insulation depth, and other common upgrades.
Planting trees to shade your home in the summer, replacing incandescent light bulbs with L.E.D.s, and other inexpensive upgrades will allow you to reduce your monthly bills. Something that might be important, some day, during an economic collapse.
Granite Counter Tops
Even though, I don't like granite as a counter top, some folks are going to want to upgrade the kitchen.
That's cool, but don't go overboard, especially if you have children.
You and your partner will be moving, to down-size, after the children go off to college.
Now, some folks are going to disagree with me. That's o.k because they are planning to stay in their homes, foooooorever.
You need to think about upgrades that will allow you and your partner to stay in your home when you two are older. This means replacing doorknobs with lever handles. Possibly adding a stairway lift or even an elevator to get between the first and second floor of your home; installing more lights, to be able to see better; replacing light switches with rocker switches, to make it easier to switch a light on or off; and other accessibility improvements.
Like moving to a ranch style home, if ... you live in Texas.
I know I have said this before, but some folks are new to GSiEP.
Some of y'all might think about creating a multi-generational household. This is where grandparents, parents, and children/grandchildren all live in the same house or closely placed homes.
The grandparents take care of the younger children as the parents go out and make money to keep everyone fed and a roof over their head. Needless to say, the grandparents also work or receive a pension to supplement the households main wage earner.
Like multi-generational household, some families may decide to build nuclear blast shelters to protect their families, just in case of a nuclear war. While other families will settle for having a copy (or two) of Nuclear War Survival Skills.
Another specialty shelter is a hardened home like the French farmhouses of the Thirty Years War, Italian Hilltop villas, or the almost fort-like homes of South Africa. These homes are built to last a few hundred years and protect the extended family from roving bandit bands.
As always, look at the possible threats facing your family before deciding on how to spend your family's hard-earned cash.
'Casue, ... It would suck to get prepared for a nuclear war while an economic collapse is a more likely event.
Or, ... a hurricane, tornado, winter storm, summer heatwave, or some other, more likely, natural disaster event.
