Stuff Worth Sharing

This week I stumbled upon some great information that I felt was worth sharing. Some of it is prepping related while some of it is political in nature. Whether you lean one way or the other in the political arena, it is important to know what is going on in the world.

Food Storage Basics Plus A Super Food Storage Giveaway

Jennifer from Are We Crazy, Or What? has put together a great post on the basics of food storage including the differences of long term and short term storage as well as things to consider when storing food. The full article can be read here.

USDA Puts Out a Request for .40 Cal Sub-Machine Guns

For those that haven’t heard yet, the United States Department of Agriculture is the latest federal government organization that is looking to add military grade weapon systems to their inventory of equipment. Their request is not for any run of the mill sub-machine guns either, the solicitation specifically outlines the need for,

Submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burst trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsible or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.

How I’d restore Ronald Reagan’s vision for America

LTC Allen West outlines how he believes that we may be seeing what he calls the first light of the “dawn of a new America.” Personally, I hope he is right. Read his take on things here.

I hope that everyone had a great week but don’t stop preparing for the tough times that may lay ahead.

The World’s Most Fearsome WMD

John Kerry: Global warming is “world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

Yes, Mr. Kerry (“our” Secretary of State) just said that last week. That means you, dear reader, exhaling CO2, are a “terrorist.” You had better keep an eye on that Agenda 21 drone hovering outside your window! And now, presumably even the most mindless “Yes we can” chanter now knows there has been ZERO global warming since 1998 (well, I can dream, can’t I?).

Maybe Kerry should go back to traveling on his wife’s private jet, called the “Flying Squirrel” (just google “Kerry Flying Squirrel” to get your own details), sailing his 76’, $7 million dollar yacht, the Isabel, which he docked in R.I. a few years back to save $500,000 in taxes rather than by docking in his home state of Taxachussets. At least he is less of a hypocrite than fellow leftist zillionaire John Travolta who owns FIVE airplanes, and has his own private airport…. but then, what else to do you expect from Hollywierd Learjet leftist?)

Or perhaps Kerry could go back to one of his mansions. A few years ago (this may have changed now, as well as valuations) his digs included:

  • Boston: A five-story, 12-room Beacon Hill townhouse that serves as Kerry’s main residence. Assessed value: $6.9 million.
  • Nantucket, Mass.: A three-story, five-bedroom waterfront retreat on Brant Point. Assessed value: $9.18 million.
  • Washington, D.C.: A 23-room townhouse in Georgetown. Proposed 2005 assessment: $4.7 million.
  • Ketchum, Idaho: A ski getaway converted from a reassembled barn near Sun Valley. Assessed value: $4.916 million. Heinz Kerry owns two adjoining lots valued at $1.5 million and $1.8 million.
  • Fox Chapel, Pa.: A nine-room colonial on nearly 90 acres in suburban Pittsburgh. The property also includes a nine-room, carriage house. Assessed value: $3.7 million.

Make sure to check out the leftist website Snopes for additional details about the properties, where they try to justify it by saying that Kerry, himself, doesn’t really own all of them, as his prenup with his fellow zillionaire leftist wife means that he doesn’t legally own them (never mind the fact that these two leftist darlings have all this for, well… just two people!).

To consume as much electrical power as do the Kerry-Heinz mansions, the two largest of the five – in Pennsylvania and Idaho – are in cold climates and presumably need to be kept above 55F (and probably much more) for at least six months out of the year. With a combined estimated 110,000 square feet under roof, this takes as much energy as is required by a small American village of approximately 200 persons – for basically TWO people. Where is the radical leftist outrage at this wanton expenditure of the earth’s non-renewable resources for two people? Before he bought the Isabel, he tooled around Nantucket Sound in a 42 ft luxury powerboat he called the Scaramouche, of which the no-frills model starts at $695,000, which he reportedly bought factory fresh, for cash. But then, he NEEDS this massive amount of fuel to get our leftist darling from event to event in a manner in which he doesn’t have to mix with us poor, unwashed masses.

And in case you were wondering about Kerry’s recent trips he made to discuss global warming, Jim Geraghty of National Review Online helpfully pointed out that flying first class from Washington to Seoul to Beijing to Jakarta to Abu Dhabi and then back to Washington runs up roughly 12.16 metric tons of carbon dioxide, according to, which uses data from the EPA and Department of Energy. In comparison, the average American generates about 19 tons of carbon dioxide in a year. So in one week, just from flying from meeting to meeting, Kerry generated about two-thirds the carbon output of the average American in one year.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE: I am now convinced that “WE” must be the problem. Never mind that the polar ice is doing just fine. I would like to extend a special thank you to Jim for sending this information my way.

WE Own America!

The last couple of days have been a source of disappointment to me. We have a government that has become so corrupt that they would rather see chaos erupt across the nation than compromise. In fact, both parties wanted the government to close. The Republicans want to be able to say, “See, we let the government shut down fighting for the people” and the Democrats want to be able to say, ” The Republicans are such anarchists that they want Americans to die instead of have affordable health care.” Our “representatives” want to be able to play the blame game instead of represent us.

For clarification, I don’t think the world is ending because the government is shut down. In fact I think it just demonstrates the fact that the government has become so large that most of it is not necessary. I also do not believe that the Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, is a good idea. It is nothing more than an entitlement program. What makes it affordable? Giving those who cannot afford regular insurance subsidies from the tax payers. Nothing more than an expansion of welfare! Enough about that.

The straw that broke the camel’s back was the incident with the World War II honor flight veterans yesterday with the veterans that wanted to see their memorial. Upon their arrival they found the World War II memorial was closed because of the government shutdown. Now I know that the story has a “happy ending.” A few representatives of Congress found out about the situation and came to the memorial where they removed the barricades and escorted the veterans into the memorial. Today, there was an increase in the security presence at the memorial to encourage other veterans to stay out. This isn’t about the budget or the shutdown. This is about controlling people. The World War I memorial is not barricaded because there are no living veterans that may try to break into it.

It is ridiculous!!! Why are we empowering the government to control us! This is the people’s property. We bought and paid for it with our tax dollars. President Obama and Speaker Boehner did not pay for the monument. It is ours! Those veterans do not need permission to be there. The government only has the power that we give them. It is time that we let OUR government know that they work for us. WE own America!


Thank You Taxpayers!

Fox news correspondent John Roberts recently spent some time with Californian Jason Greenslate to learn about the new reality of food stamp recipients, compliments of our President, Barack Hussein Obama. Check out this video and see if it doesn’t make your blood reaching its boiling point. This is America’s future if we do not interfere and demand accountability and change (notice I said accountability and change, not Hope and Change) from our government and our country’s leadership.

Please note that this food stamp recipient is driving a Cadillac Escalade EXT which carries a base price of $63,060 for this year’s model. I don’t know about all of you but I have always worked full time to provide for me and mine and have never owned a Cadillac. Not even one that was up on blocks in the yard!


History Repeats Itself!

I wholeheartedly believe that history does repeat itself. The only way to prevent this is to alter the course of current events. As it was once said…

If you have doubts, consider this account as it appeared on the Facebook page of ReadyAim

For anyone who doesn’t think that their guns will be next, and that it’s okay for those evil, black “assault rifles” and “95 round clips” that just inflict maximum damage and are designed solely for killing to be banned, here’s a story for you. After World War II, a writer came up to an educated German priest who had spent the end of the war in a death camp but managed to survive, “How could your people have let this happen”?

The man said, “When they came around in 1934 and rounded up the guns and radios with short-wave capability to get international broadcasts, I didn’t complain–I had neither. When they came around in 1936 and rounded up the Jews, I didn’t complain, we’d all been told the Jews were the cause of economic collapse after the first war. When they came around and gathered up the handicapped, Jesuits, homosexuals and intellectuals in 1940, I even agreed with much of what they said. After they banned the Catholic church in 1941 it started to hit close to home. Finally when they came around for me in 1944 it was too late”.

Any of you who have a gun of ANY kind and you want to keep it: if you don’t stand up for people with “assault rifles”, just like in Britain now, there will come a day when you have to get your weapon checked out from the police station on certain days. As the minutemen said, “If we don’t hang together, we all hang separately”.

I do not know if this is true or not. But even if it is just a story, there is a lesson to be learned here.

Will you be a part of the change? Or will you wait until they come for you or your guns?
