Hoarding part deux [Sep. 9th, 2017|11:01 pm]
[Current Location |in the path of Irma]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]
[Current Music |Pryda ~ Loving You (Original Mix)]

The calamity has reached new heights tonight at the grocery store. 11pm, 12 registers open and all have lines stretching to new heights. Every cart is bursting at the seams and all the water sold today before I got here from what I can tell. The unprepared rushing madly to prepare. Why not always be prepared? Why not realize that you have already been given the greatest Swiss Army Knife, the greatest weapon this world has ever seen, your brain? Stop the panic and use it.

Hoarders [Sep. 8th, 2017|11:14 pm]
[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

I am currently cleaning out a house that was once owned by one of the greatest collectors of military stuff I have ever known. And magazines, and books, and - the list goes on. I am also watching as hundreds of people buy case after case of drinking water as hurricane Irma advances.
What am I doing?
Sitting here writing a blog post. If the power goes out for weeks I would not be in the least bit concerned. I have a barbecue grill and more charcoal than you can shake a stick at. Plenty of wood to make fire as well. Two streams and a well if I need more. Even if all that failed I have barrels collecting rain water. Survival is easy really if you know what you're doing. These people should be buying a water filter not water.
If all the stores run out of food I'd survive. Canned goods, dry foods like pasta, long term storage foods such as potatoes, I'd be more than surviving I'd be thriving. A camp stove even to make my coffee or just a hot meal.
Most of all though I would have my brain. Go ahead and panic world, when the storm hits I'll be lighting a cigarette and pouring myself a glass of vodka.

All that said I still don't know how I feel about this article.

"Consider the water shortage currently plaguing residents of Texas and the overtly hostile backlash against those who raised the price of things like bottled water. Does this action hurt Texans, dumping on people who literally and figuratively are struggling to get their heads above water? Or do these higher prices benefit them, especially those most in need, by relieving them of having to deal with greedy hoarders, thus lessening the harsh realities of an immediate shortage of fresh water at their disposal?"

poisoning the so called infidel through far reaching means [Sep. 7th, 2017|04:49 am]
"The papers, written in Arabic, report the production and testing of two chemical compounds — thallium sulphate and a nicotine-based compound — at the Isis development and military industrialisation commission."
Much like happened to me years ago with some soda . . .

Hey Rick
I don't feel like sleeping either. My grandma is a bit of a worrier so she has me staying at her place tonight. I go to court tomorrow.
Personally I made a prediction earlier this week that Irma was going to cross Florida and my prediction seems to possibly be coming true. The forecast tonight had four tracks sending it across the state and possibly into the gulf. Two of those would definitely be bad news for your neck of the woods and mine but time will tell.
I have seen some solar charging gear on line, and there's always a car adapter. I was very thankful for my dad collecting all that camping gear when the ice storm went through a few years back his camp stove was invaluable because I could make coffee lol the power was out at my house for over two weeks. Being such a rural area the power company didn't get around to our power lines because so few people were affected I guess.
Not sure if you will believe this but a city policeman stopped me the other night in my new truck for not having my lights on and actually gave me a ticket for it! I swear that department is deplorably picky. At least he didn't arrest me for it.
My sister lost her pregnancy by the way, not sure if I mentioned that. It's been a difficult summer for our family. We shall pull through though.
Strange how easily a lineage of people can become extinct isn't it? K1a1b1 may soon die. Some survive thrive and carry on, whilst others die.
I've been watching a video series called The Great War (mentioned this before) about said war and been thinking about how many lineages were cut short in both the Great War and WWII. My grandfather (our common relative) was stationed stateside during the conflict, his life was spared; but so many of the soldiers he trained fell from the skies. What is justice? What is logic? Every day we see the ending of an Adam or an Eve and their contribution to humanity. Evidenced most recently by the three child baby who was genetically engineered.

It seems some have realised what the FA thugs really are . . . [Sep. 1st, 2017|11:28 pm]
[Current Music |Boris Brejcha - Lonely Planet (Original Mix)]

Dozens of armed anti-fascist groups have emerged, including Redneck Revolt and the Red Guards, according to the reports and interviews. One report from New Jersey authorities said self-described antifa groups have been established in cities including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco.

"There’s Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Nancy Pelosi’s purse),  explaining to CNN’s Jake Tapper how the “‘Antifa’ leftist movement seeks  peace through violence.”


Right. And “work sets you free.”"

Another Lincoln quote [Aug. 24th, 2017|08:50 pm]

"Two days before Lincoln’s inauguration as the 16th President,  Congress, consisting only of the Northern states, passed overwhelmingly  on March 2, 1861, the Corwin Amendment that gave constitutional  protection to slavery. Lincoln endorsed the amendment in his inaugural  address, saying “I have no objection to its being made express and  irrevocable.”"


Go yankees. As proved by my mother's father, William Wilberforce, the biography of Fredrick Douglas, and more the north were the racists.

I should remind you li'l Kim, my grandfather kicked your arse. I will not hesitate to do the same. [Aug. 24th, 2017|08:25 pm]

Well not technically yours, but the much bigger man the Emperor of Japan.


"The sooner the national authority can be restored; the  nearer the Union will be “the Union as it was.” If there be those who  would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save  slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save  the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not  agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the  Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save  the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save  it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by  freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that." ~Abraham Lincoln

Civility, is it too much to ask of a gentleman? [Aug. 24th, 2017|08:21 pm]

Civil discourse has never been American. Just ask Aaron Burr. Or Charles the Great.

"Even if you overlook the clashes between the two fascist forces –  Antifa and the white supremacists, who are nothing more than an extreme  but vocal minority – as fringe elements and not reflective of reality,  all political discourse seemingly deteriorates quickly to calumny,  contumely and vitriol, if not open conflict."

"Indiscriminate vandalism and destruction in an effort to suppress history and ideas which you find offensive? There’s a word for that.

“Scheisse! We burned the only dictionary.”"

The Wire [Aug. 5th, 2017|10:08 pm]

"with Senator Cory Booker leading the charge to decriminalize  marijuana, a new Harvard–Harris Poll survey indicates only 14 percent of  Americans think weed should be illegal.

The other 86 percent asked the pollster if they could swing by the store and pick them up some Pringles."
