Well it’s official one in ten Americans are stupid! I’d say it’s more like every six in ten, but going by a recent CNN poll – 1 in 10 Americans Wants War With Russia Over Downed Airliner. Apparently, these people think that a war with Russia would be akin to the recent “wars” in Iraq, […]

The purpose of this particular dissertation is to scare the crap out of you, and thus move you off the pot. Time is short, and the storm clouds are gathering over the Middle East. Our southern border is a free-for-all, drug cartels and gangs have a viable presence in virtually every major American city, and the poser-in-chief thinks he was elected king and is doing everything he can think of to dismantle this country.
Gun owners react to TN’s newest gun and hunting laws : “On July 1, two new Tennessee laws took effect regarding firearms and hunting. Senate Bill 1774 allows anyone to legally carry firearms and ammunition in his or her vehicle as long as the vehicle is owned by that person. Senate Bill 1777 makes it […]

I want to share a small post with the pack. I have been growing an herb that was a favorite among the Native Americans for a long time. I don’t remember where I read the first bit of information on it but I planted it in my herb garden 22 years ago because it’s very pretty towards fall when it has huge fluffy purple balls for flowers atop six foot stems.
I know it as Joe Pye Weed, some may know it as Gravelroot, Eupatorium spp. It’s an herbaceous plant meaning it dies off to the ground each year and grows back. I use a machete now to chop it down at the end of fall.
As most people seem to like Mexican food I thought I would send this posting to you. These recipes were given to me by my Mexican friends over the years. The first recipe is in keeping with the recent bean posts. The second recipe is for the rice that pairs nicely with the beans.
1. The U.S. Dollar Has Collapsed: You Just Don’t Know It Yet : “The current U.S. dollar isn’t backed by anything other than your imagination. Here is some food for thought: What makes a $100 bill worth more than a $1.00 bill? Your BELIEF that its worth more. Both are nothing more than ink printed […]

“A prudent person foresees the danger ahead and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”
You may find other survival blogs and prepper websites giving the impression that you need fancy freeze-dried foods, a massive gun collection, a Hummer equipped with a gun turret and a 50 acre retreat secluded in some remote mountain top of Idaho. Although this may seem attractive on some level, it is not possible for the average Joe (or the average Jane). More importantly, you don’t need a six-figure income to help your family become better prepared. We show you how...
