In this weeks edition of Monday Mania: Could You Really Turn Family Away During A Disaster?, The Woodland Homestead, 150 Reasons To Be Prepared For Life, Who To Survive A Stock Market Crash, 6 Most Popular Types Of Fuel To Store, and 3 More.
OK, my personal highlight of the last week was, hands down, having surgery on my right shoulder. It was not a ton of fun but it can always be worse.
I can tell you this much, I would rather have arthroscopic surgery twice in one week instead of having one hernia repair. That is just my opinion based on my own experience. Please do not tell the United States government that I am not being fair because I expressed my thoughts based on what I have actually experienced, whether it lines up with your thoughts or not.
You may be able to sense it but I am really heated this week because it seems like things just continue to go further down the drain as each day goes by.
The stock market is looking like crap in the U.S. so make sure that you keep track on things and get out before it’s too late. You may be best off to take your money out of the stock market and spend it on things that will actually be useful to you if things hit the fan.
The U.S. military is also continuing, one step at a time, to turn itself into a freak show. Is allowing transgenders to openly serve in the military really a good idea?
Just an observation but when George W. Bush was the Commander-In-Chief, the military was not fundamentally “transformed” (pun intended) because of how a very, very small minority percentage of Americans (most who are not, nor ever will be in the military) feel.
I am plain disgusted that we are falling apart at the seams and the organization that we depend on to secure our country and defend the Constitution, is being watered down into a group of people who can’t even decide if the parts that are connected to their body really play into who they are as a person!
This doesn’t even account for the fact that I am an Army veteran, with three combat tours under my belt, who is being told it is not ok to feel this way because it is discriminatory. If you are concerned about discrimination America, treat me equally even if I am a
white Caucasian-American, Christian male that feels like I should be entitled to an opinion as well (even if I don’t fall into a small group that is different from the majority).
On top of all else, how am I supposed to look my three sons in the eye and tell them that this is a great place to live and everything is going to be ok?
Rant complete. Enjoy the show.
THIS WEEK’S DISCOVERIES:
Could You Really Turn Family Away During A Disaster? – Not an easy question but it is one worth pondering now. These questions are important for making a good decision.
The Woodland Homestead: How To Make Your Land More Productive & Live More Self-Sufficiently In The Woods by Brett McLeod – A book recommendation which will reveal what to do with a woodland parcel and make it into the homestead you would like it to be.
150 Reasons To Be Prepared For Life – We all have our reasons for wanting to be prepared. Here are several more and perhaps, some justification to convince friends or family to prepare themselves.
How To Survive A Stock Market Crash – This is especially timely information that, in spite of last week’s financial performance, could really be of assistance.
The 6 Most Popular Types Of Fuel To Store For Emergencies – Some good pointers on storing different types of fuel for emergencies. It is beneficial to decide what fuel(s) you will store now so that you can plan appropriately for later.
Straight Talk About Expiration Dates – There is a lot of controversy around expiration dates but I think we all know that they are not what they were intended to be.
MORE MADNESS IN THE WORLD:
Indiana Freshmen Can’t Go To School Until They’ve Watched A Musical About How Not To Be Rapists – Stupid. Also, clearly sexist seeing as it is directed towards men.
At This Nevada High School, You Can Have A Gay Club, But Not A Pro-Life Club – This is pretty much par for the course in today’s America, you can believe whatever you want as long as it does not go against the idea of what the establishment thinks you should believe.
That’s a wrap for me this week. As always, I hope that you all have had a great week and keep getting ready for tough times. It seems like we get closer every day to something unfortunate coming along.
