A few thoughts on gun control…..

gun-rights

Gun control is certainly on the lips of many today due to recent news headlines and gun control is one issue that I certainly have opinions on.

Top online criminal justice programs, police academies, and everything in between all teach that as guns are harder to legally buy so increases the illicit market and use of other weapons. This truth is often ignored by news media and groups critical of gun use, especially in the

Arlene on current Avian Flu situation

where most antibiotics go…

 

Recently the Dept. of Agriculture stated that 41.1 MILLION chickens have been wiped out in the midwest and

7.5 Million turkeys have died or been killed. This is all due to the avian virus H5N2. Eastern states are preparing for this epidemic. No birds are allowed at State or county fairs this summer/fall as a precaution to slow down this virus.

The Turkey federation has stated that there are enough frozen turkeys for Thanksgiving

I can see it coming…..

I can see it.

I can see the countless stories of kids lemonade stands being shut down due to local governments requiring permits. I can see towns fining people who back into their driveways rather than pull in to expose their license plate. Of course the town officials must make sure that all vehicles are registered and not left just sitting in the home owners driveway.

I can see tax bills arriving to the

This country is doomed?

Last week I published a video from YouTube’s SouthernPrepper1 regarding the current condition of the United States. To summarize SP1 expressed frustration with the direction the country is heading and the lack of true Constitutional representation. If you missed the video I am republishing it below.

Lot’s of comments were made and many were very insightful. This is an important topic and wanted to pass on these insightful words……

Gun control initiative coming?

256px-No_guns.svg_

Yes – President Obama continues to be THE best gun salesman in the history of the planet. It is being reported that the Justice Department is looking to change the definition of “pistol” in the coming months. I am not alone in thinking that they may target AR and AK pistols – or at least the “braces” which are currently in fashion.

Nothing would surprise me however I have to admit that as far as

The Greatest Threat To Our National Security

News1

The following was originally published over at the Center for Security Policy.

 

By Admiral James Lyons

When President-elect Obama declared that he was going to “fundamentally transform” America, not many Americans understood what that meant. They certainly did not understand that he did not believe in America’s exceptionalism and greatness. They were also unaware of his past Marxist indoctrination, blaming America for many of the world’s problems. Therefore, anything that undercuts and withdraws America’s

Taking care of ourselves here at home first….

rant_small

I have been thinking a lot lately about government, politics and the state of this country today.

There are a few things that really frustrate me.

Borders– No matter your opinion on the immigration problem in this country – I suspect most all of you believe that there should be better security at the borders. The first step that needs to be taken to resolve illegal immigration is to stop illegals from entering this country!!

Rourke: Here is the latest update from AlertsUSA. Concerning……

 

Late last week the Islamic State released a new propaganda video (GRAPHIC)entitled ‘We Will Burn America” within which threats of another 9/11 style attack are made, and which calls on supporters here in the U.S. homeland to carry out their own attacks.

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location. Thus you see it invades the Muslim lands, and it thinks that the army

I am a production manager at a manufacturing facility for my regular job. As the main person who does the hiring/firing at my plant – I have come across pretty much everything you can think of when it comes to employment issues.

With the unemployment problems this country has – for some “survival” today means getting a job – or keeping the one they have. I hope

Two strains of bird flu spreading

Over the past few weeks two strains of bird flue have been being reported on. One exists here in the United States and has resulted in the destruction of over 40,000 turkeys to try to minimize the spread. This is the H5N2 strain.

The second strain – the H7N9 – is currently in China. It is being found both in poultry and in humans. It is being reported that this strain could result in a

Economy – “It’s truly a scary time”

economic-collapse (1)

A hedge fund manager who warned about the last financial crisis is seeing parallels of that run-up in the market today.

“I think it is a truly scary time,” Andy Redleaf, CEO of $4.2 billion hedge and mutual fund manager Whitebox Advisors, said in an internal memo Sunday night obtained by CNBC.com.

– the above comes from the article “Hedge fund manager says: It’s a truly scary time”

Freedom Must Be Protected

This post appeared originally at JamesRobison.net. Check it out HERE.

In our present day, enemies of faith and true freedom don’t even want to acknowledge the supernatural power that influenced America’s birth or the importance of God, faith, family, and the principles necessary for freedom. Their coalition of hostile forces, however different, diverse or distinct, refuses to be divided. They stand together hell-bent in opposition to undeniable, absolute, transforming truth. Sadly, those who know

Save the M855!

m855-green-tip-ammo-cover-410x224

The BATF is getting ready to make a decision regarding the banning of the common military round the M855. The M855 is being targeted due to it’s steel tip and a reputation for being “armor piercing”.

Here is the reality if the round is banned:

First – if the M855 is banned plenty of .223 and 5.56 ammunition will be available. This is NOT a ban on all ammunition of those calibers. Second – if

Are you Paranoid?

By The Coach, Contributing Editor

 

Every now and then people think I am a little paranoid about big brother watching us. That is why I started researching about covert cell phone towers. The more I research, the more I do not feel so paranoid.

Recently I have written two articles in reference to the U.S. Government using unorthodox methods to ease drop on law abiding American citizens. The articles are titled “Unlimited Access

Question re: M855 Green Tip Ammunition

To all,

As you should know by now, the B.A.T.F. is in the process of outlawing the green tipped, metal core, 5.56mm round of ammo for civilian purchase.

Today, I attended a Gun Show here is southeast Louisiana.

To my surprise, I found only one dealer that had the green tipped 5.56mm rounds for sale. The price was $1.00 per round, with a minimum purchase of 420 rounds in an ammo can. The

Small Business Administration is big government

33594a5e0efa12fd65bd0c218a978118.image.200x200

by Keeleigh S. Utt – originally published at TheHill.com

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has been rather scandal-ridden since it’s creation in June 1953. It’s goal was to use taxpayer dollars to fund small businesses that otherwise would not have other means of supporting themselves. Eisenhower’s budget group called it “uncontrollable” and even then understood that this agency was a gamble. In 2011, The CATO Institute found that in 2008 alone 1 in every 4
