jobburnout

This post was previously published HERE on MSO.

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”

There is little doubt that compared to

Freedom Must Be Protected

james-robison

 

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

Many preppers and people living off of the grid raise chickens, ducks, geese and other foul for their consumption and for sale and/or bartering for what they need. Not only do they sell and trade the foul but they also utilize the eggs from those foul.

The Panhandle Rancher speaks…..THE PATRIOT ACT

On February 27, 1933 and six days before the upcoming parliamentary election, fire broke out in the Reichstag chambers. Hitler blamed this fire on the Communist Party and called for special legislation to combat the invidious threat to German freedom represented by those Marxists.

 

Reichstag Fire Decree:

I know I am probably going to stir up a hornets nest with this article. However, as I have said before, I am tired of trying to be politically correct and please everyone.

YouTube is an absolutely incredible source of information on almost anything you can think of. Every week we feature a new video related to a variety of topics such as firearms, first aid, gardening, security, food storage, water filtration….and current events.

I said several months ago that I would post my opinions on numerous things – even if it pisses people off a bit here and there.

The Panhandle Rancher speaks……Ferguson

140819-ferguson-jms-2101_7006485f15b78e374f38ddbd198de0b9

The furor at Ferguson, Missouri can be said to arise in part from the Fifth Amendment to our Constitution. This Amendment stipulates that trials for felony violation can commence only after indictment by grand jury. This amendment also protects the accused against double jeopardy (being tried twice for the same crime) and protects the accused from being compelled to reveal information that may be used to incriminate (from which we get the

Things to ponder from the pen of General Petraeus:

“1-53. Weapons are especially important. In some parts of the world, lack of access to weapons may forestall insurgencies. Unfortunately, there is widespread availability of weapons in many areas, with especially large surpluses in the most violent regions of the world. … Insurgents can obtain weapons through legal or illegal purchases or from foreign sources. A common tactic is to

Can America As We Know It Survive Two More Years of President Obama?

american-flag-2a2

 

BY FRANK DOWD, IV The morning after the 2012 presidential election, I jotted down 10 things we could expect in a second term from President Obama—some positive in a hopeful sense, and others quite negative. A year later I looked back on my predictions and found that I had been far too optimistic; the record of the Obama administration was abysmal, and the state of our Country reflected it. The Charlotte Observer published my
