Before we get started with this weeks “what did you do to prep this week” blog segment, I would like to give a shout out and a thank you to Angela M, Vanessa M, Peter W, and Terri D for their generous donations this week via PayPal. Thank you.
It has been brought to my attention that some folks are having trouble viewing the blog when using older outdated versions of Internet Explorer, such as IE7 and IE8. I am looking into it, and will fix it, once I know what is causing it. In the meantime update your browser to the latest version or better yet download and start using Firefox.
I’m sure that most of you have heard that the government is going to “shutdown” on October 1 2013, if our fearless leaders (pun intended) don’t reach a deal and once again raise the national debt limit… Really? Again? I think I’ve seen this play before and it’s getting old.
This shutting down the government fiasco is nothing but a scare tactic, that is used to get people, and congress to support stuff that they do not agree with (like Obama care). So what if it (parts of the government) shut down? Let it…
All they have been doing with these deals, agreements, and debt ceiling raises is kicking the can down the road with one postponement after another. They spend like crazy, reach the debt limit, then raise the debt limit to avoid the dreaded government “shut down” and repeat.
All they are doing is increasing spending and debt, to grow an ever larger and more intrusive government, and only making matters far worse, when the can, can no longer be kicked down the road at which point we will see a total economic collapse.
Now let’s see what did I do to prep this week?
Bought the newest version of the Roku – the Roku 3 - I know that you’re probably, asking what a media player has to do with prepping… Well lets see, I don’t have cable or satellite TV and the Roku, allows me to easily watch news on my TV via my internet connection. The two news sources that I watch most are The Blaze and RT America. And Netflix for entertainment. Hulu isn’t worth the $7.99 per month subscription fee – get a antenna for local channels and news instead.
Okay, what else…
Not much buying or stockpiling this week – no money after buying ammo last week – but I did shoot 100 rounds of that ammo for practice (and fun) with my Kahr CM9. The Kahr CM9 is an excellent concealed carry handgun.
Well that it for me this week – What about you… What did you do to prep this week?
