Thomas Kinkade – Nature’s Paradise
Open-forum. Voice your opinions, Q&A, what you did this week…
The most read new article from this past week was “EMP – Can This Happen?”. Fortunately it has not happened (yet), and there are lots of opinions regarding the plausibility of such an event. It sure gets you to thinking about worst-case-scenario preparedness…
Its hard to believe there’s only one week left in July – where is this summer going? Never seems to be enough time to get in all the projects that I want to… 😉
Okay, lets hear from you:
While looking at recent government statistics regarding the CPI (Consumer Price Index), I notice (as most of you instinctively know) that food prices have been going up much higher than the government acclaimed inflation rate – which they continually tell us is low.
Well the fact is that by even their own numbers, many food prices have increased substantially – even during just this past year.
Here are some examples, and the rationale to build and acquire your own food storage (beyond just a few days or weeks)
The modern world is entirely dependent upon and fueled by electricity from power generation sources which primarily are sourced from nuclear, coal, gas, oil, and hydro.
Some of you might be interested to see the following maps which show where each power source is located as well as its relative size with respect to each plant’s annual generation of power.
Seriously, this post is about the question, “Why?”. This man, Obama, has not stopped as he constantly and relentlessly has been (and is) going after the guns of ‘law abiding’ American citizens. Why is this??
For years he has been scouring for, and advantaging any perceived loophole… any way to bend or change interpretations or definitions of existing rules or law, or to use his pen for ‘Executive Order’ — and to seize any and every opportunity to leverage public emotion following any high profile shooting (which involves a ‘criminal’) while blaming ‘the gun’ rather than the criminal.
It is quite apparent that he has a personal goal to remove as many firearms from the hands of American citizens that he can. The ‘law abiding’ ones like you and I. No extra efforts appear to be going towards the criminal element who statistically use guns in their crimes…
WHY? Why so absolutely insistent? What is the real reason?
There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that IF he could he WOULD abolish the 2nd Amendment. But, WHY? Why would he do that?
Here’s a little more about his latest attack on your right to own a firearm, this time on a particular group of social security recipients:
Is the following scenario plausible?
A well financed proxy terrorist group has struck the United States.
They have successfully launched a modified Scud short range ballistic missile which was hidden inside a specifically and purposely designed shipping container positioned on top of ‘the stack’ aboard a freight ship. Many days ago it left from a foreign port and transitioned to a location just off the east coast of the United States – heading towards the Port Newark container terminal in New Jersey.
More of the story:
If you had to vote for president right now, who would you pick?
Although politics may be considered the ‘third rail’ of blogging, lets see if we can be civil and answer the following anonymous poll question while keeping the comments on the ‘up and up’, despite differences of opinion… 😉
UPDATE: After nearly 750 participants, the July 2015 results are in:

A woman who asked not to be identified thanks the armed civilians out front of a Manchester, New Hampshire, military recruiting center after the recent shooting by “Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez” who opened fire on two military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, killing five service members and wounding one other service member and a police officer.
The armed men who stood outside a military recruiting center in New Hampshire said they wanted to provide security for the people working inside after last week’s shooting in Tennessee.
The reason? Believe it or not there are bans on most military personnel — who are forbidden from carrying firearms on military bases and recruitment facilities.
Are you military or ex-military? What is your opinion on these bans?
