Why Are So Many Big Cities In The United States – Liberal?

August 3, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

san-francisco-skyline

Overall, the liberal tilt of big cities is unmistakable. Even cities with conservative reputations (such as Dallas, Santa Ana, Calif. and Cincinnati) are politically left-of-center, if only slightly.

The most liberal cities include (as expected) San Francisco, Washington D.C., Seattle, Oakland and Boston while the most conservative cities include Mesa, Ariz., Oklahoma City, Virginia Beach and Colorado Springs.

(for a more detailed list, see below)

Big cities in the U.S. tend toward the liberal side of the political spectrum. With cities of 250,000 or more, nearly every one of them ‘leans left’. The question is, “Why?”

What did you do for your preparedness this week? (2015-08-01)

August 1, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

fog-in-the-valley

The most read article written during this past week has been “Preparing For A Long Term Depression” which inspired lots of comments. The subject is apparently genuinely on the minds of many, and is quite likely a real possibility as the world’s debt bubble shows signs of ‘maximum bulge’ before the POP.

With that said, surprisingly, the article “SPAM® For Food Storage” is rapidly catching up with # of reads and has surpassed many others with regards to comments. I believe that’s a result of most everyone relating in some way to this very unique ‘food’ that apparently has a shelf life believed to be somewhere in the vicinity of 500 years, more or less… 😉 The comments are filled with lots of your own personal recipes (thanks for sharing!).

And rounding off the week I posted a controversial (for some) article which directly touched the political ‘3rd-rail’, “Truth Is An Existential Threat To The US Government”. I hold a generally cynical view of our current politicians (BOTH the D’s and the R’s) and I do entirely believe that ‘most’ are beholden to their money masters (‘big money’) with little regard to ‘we the people’. Although it is evident that the majority of regular visitors here lean towards ‘the right’, conservative, and/or perhaps some Libertarian, I also know that there are (is) a fair number on the left as well. While I may disagree politically with the left-leaning and/or so called progressives, we can still share a common thread here of preparedness – because even many of ‘the left’ know that there’s a storm coming… With that said, once in awhile I feel compelled to push the ‘political’ hot button… Makes for interesting conversation…

Alright – with that summary under our belts, what have you been up to this week? Care to share? It’s open-forum…

Truth Is An Existential Threat To The US Government

July 31, 2015, by Lawrence Sellin

Only the truth will set us free.

The United States is not a constitutional republic. It is an oligarchy controlled by wealthy financiers who hire politicians to pass legislation beneficial to them and employ journalists to keep the citizens ignorant and compliant.

Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans believe in democracy. It is simply an ideological contest between two different forms of totalitarianism based on big government, where they represent only themselves in their pursuit of personal power and profit.

The following article is written by Lawrence Sellin who writes for WesternJournalism.com.

SPAM® For Food Storage

July 30, 2015, by Ken Jorgustin

spam-ingredients

From the standpoint of survival preparedness and food storage, SPAM® is a relatively inexpensive meat product that stores very well. While one could point out the potential negative health attributes of eating SPAM® long-term, when it comes to SHTF survival — it’s a different story 😉 SPAM® packs a lot of calories and protein in a small package.

Note: Any food storage plan should be well diversified – various foods and food groups.

Have you ever wondered what’s in SPAM®? Here’s more:
