This Memorial Day Weekend…

May 29, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

memorial-day-flag

This Memorial Day, besides the official start of summer & BBQ’s etc., I am giving some thought to its purpose…remembering those who have died while serving in the country’s armed forces.

Regardless of the reasons for war, the politics of war, or whether it was right or just, the fact is that many, many have sacrificed their lives in doing so.

This day we reflect on those sacrifices.

The Things That Will Disappear First After SHTF Disaster

May 27, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

I’ve posted this type of list several times before, and it’s good food-for-thought. It’s been awhile so lets do it again… If the SHTF (fill in your own disaster definition), what might be the first things to disappear from shelves or general availability? I know it depends on what the SHTF event is, etc., but lets just go with it and imagine it’s ‘bad’…

While ultimately you might say that ‘everything’ might disappear, lets instead think about the ‘first’ things, the things that others might consider to be needed the most – and therefore the first to go.

In no particular order, here’s a list off the top of my head:

Guns & Ammo Will Be Sold Out During Next Major Terror In USA

May 26, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

ammunition-shortage

A comment awhile back on MSB read as follows:

I worked in sporting goods at WalMart when 911 happened. I stood and watched on the store TVs as the second plane flew into the towers. By noon I had sold all of the common caliber ammo I had. By the end of my shift we had completely sold out of all ammo, and the biggest part of the guns we had in the store. Some people were buying food but not many. A few were buying survival type items. But the guns and ammo were gone!

 
So here’s the thing… if and when the next ‘911’ (or bigger) terror attack hits within the U.S., instinctively patriots and others will arm themselves. The uncertainty of the situation will cause us to go into ‘protect’ mode and our personal security will become a high concern and priority – especially during the fluid time period of uncertainty.

With that said, here are a few thoughts and questions to consider:

Hillary Collects $20 Million For Speeches From These…

May 24, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

rich-hillary-from-speeches

For those who naively think that YOUR interests matter to the mainstream politician, Hahaha! Here’s who REALLY matters and whose interests matter when it comes to Hillary Clinton…

Amazingly, she has collected more than 20 Million dollars from ‘speeches’ between 2013 and 2015 from companies and organizations. That’s how it works folks. At least that’s ‘one’ of the disgusting ways that it works.

And guess who paid and how much they paid to hear those so called speeches? This is one way that they get rich and is an example of just how pathetic it all is.

The list just published at the New York Post:

3 Ways To Beat Your Normalcy Bias

May 24, 2016, by Ken Jorgustin

normalcy-bias-head-in-sand

Change is something that most people are uncomfortable with. We humans live with our familiar routines and habits, and we have some difficulty with situations that are out of the ordinary and out of our ‘comfort zone’. Because we want things to be normal. This is normalcy bias.

To make matters worse, when confronted with an emergency or disaster, something interesting happens. A small percentage will effectively deal with it, a percentage will ‘lose their minds’, however a surprising percentage of people will act as though they are not affected, that the incident is somehow over or past them, or that nothing even happened… They are not accepting in their minds that ‘it’ happened or that they are, or may be, involved in any way or that action may be prudent or required on their part…
