    I still want this ‘dance’ to go on as long as it can. I do not look forward to the day when the ‘music’ stops. Anyone with the talent to ‘Google’ can tour the world as it is today and see the world outside our borders. Southern Prepper is rattling his pitch fork for good reason. I have been taking the rust off mine as well… and the spare one in the basement.

    This year the 4th was the final nail in the coffin of America,I am with you as I have felt caged for awhile while I see the poor stupid people who have no clue and I try to not think about them.not even knowing what the flag stands for what the stars represent or the stripes of the original 13 colonies. And sadly this country is 2016 years old.while they laugh saying happy birthday America.
    Will I am putting 3% on my truck today and will pass the word around to only those I know and trust.

    • Just remember though when the turd hits the propeller it will be those poor stupid people that will be at your door begging or trying to steal what you got. Then it will be time to even the score my friends.

    • I just found some vynal stickers on ebay. large selection. my wife has one of those machines, but i don’t know how to use it….

    I agree with most of Sothern Prepper’s views and think he’s a pretty good guy.

    Again we have mention of the soap box and ballot box, referance to the bullet box with the 3% comment; No mention of the jury box, which is about the act jury nullification. (Backwood’s Home magazine online has a couple of good articl’e on this. IMO).

    I would shudder to think we ever fell so far as armed revolution and understand the thought’s that may reflect there being no other way, but I fear we are too divided as a people that there may never be a common cause to unite us. 9/11 did for a while, until it’s popularity seemingly wore off.

    Listen to a man who has lived through this all and come out alive at the other end:

    “Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.”

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”


  5. Sign sign everywhere a sign. Do this don’t do that can’t you read the sign!!!
    Anyone else remember that song? Total government control,they still don’t get it. The government are servants of the people. I totally agree with southern prepped except the flag still means something to me. My Dad’s flag folded in a triangle with 30-06 shells means something.

    • Northernwolf says:

      Another good song is Numb by the edge of U2

    • The trouble is the servants have the ability and muscle to exact a quick decisive defeat of anybody who opposes them folks.

      • Bullshit! The “servants” can’t even manage to eradicate ISIS when they have all the cards. All the people need is a charismatic leader with intestinal fortitude, someone like Washington. The main problem our nation faces today is that “quality of life” is confused with “quantity of life”. I would much prefer to live to be 60 as a free man than 90 as a slave. What I’m saying is “we” prefer our sports, tv’s, ipods, porn on cpu’s, etc. than to take a stand for what we believe in. Otherwise, Washington would have burned after Roe vs Wade and a few other travesties.

        • Northernwolf says:

          They won’t get rid of Isis because they are funding them,all in the name of keeping us safe and to get the guns. Kerry did sign on to the UN treaty for gun control even though under the constitution he was not allowed.

          • NW, very good point, everything that is signed lately is something that hurts the American people. I guess that answers whose side they are on.

    • “…There’s somethin’ happenin’ here; what it is ain’t exactly clear, but there’s a man with a gun over there tellin’ me I’ve got to beware… it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound? Everybody look at what’s goin’ down…”
      (Buffalo Springfield, circa ’64)

      “…the sign said ‘long hair freaky people need not apply, so I tucked my hair up under my hat and went in to ask him why…” (because employers can hire whomever they like, but hippies don’t like that attitude)…
      “…the sign said trespassers will be shot on sight, so I yelled across the fence, “Hey, what gives you the right to lock people out and keep mother nature in?” (again, hippies don’t recognize personal property rights)…

      Egads, we learned lot when we were kids… too bad we didn’t do the right thing then.

  6. Is everyone’s memories gone or just one sided??

    The one thing the Bush-Clan did right is they made sure they could not recover their illegal emails. Don’t be such short sighted fools.

    I have long admire SP1 and have to agree with what he said.
    Listen guys its been a while since I have been on. Kindly inform this uninformed person. What’s the 3% thing?

    • riverrider says:

      three percent is the number of colonists that stood against the british. another 10 or 20 supported. the rest cared naught or actively supported the british.

  8. riverrider says:

    yesterday i was devastated but today, seeing the reaction to comey’s speech, i have hope. there is much talk of “rule of law” when i thought i was the only one that understood it. i see bernie supporters screaming bloodymurder for their own reasons. i see many angry folks, not people throwing up their hands and walking away. i hear people saying “no law for them, no law for me then”. i hear nullification, secession. i have hope, a sliver at best, but hope. remember, sic semper tyrannis. …..what company makes rope these days? might be a good stock buy…..

  9. Lurker Judith says:

    Rope is expensive. 1in. By 600 ft. 459.00 at Uline.
    Anybody could put 3% up. No way could you trust that.
    You can’t trust anyone now much less when the shtf. That is why in my culture, in past centuries we had major clans and minor clans that vowed loyalty to the chief. My ancestors were Hendersons. Bodyguards to the McDonalds. Looks to me like we are headed there again. There are still a lot of Scotts and Irish in this country. Unless a leader comes along pretty darn soon to unite us we are screwed. Just an elderly person’s take on all this crap.

  10. Sheep Dog says:

    Is there any doubt at this point Hillary is going to be our next president? The FBI has elected not to press charges? Seriously? If she’s that corrupt and able to get away with it they already have the presidential race rigged for her to win. Hope I’m mistaken, but I don’t believe I am.
