Schrade Axe Giveaway!!!

So in the spirit of National Preparedness Month, the kind folks at Schrade have donated some goodies to help you get on the right track. We will be giving away a Schrade SCAXE2 for the first round. So in order to enter, here is what you have to do:

What Kind of World?

You’d think the only thing happening in the world right now is the Trayvon Martin case.  Perhaps that’s the  intention of TPTB.  In the last few days of the Zimmerman trial, over 20 children were shot in Chicago, but no one really noticed.  I agree without argument or ceremony that both sides, Zimmerman and Trayvon, were in the wrong.  That said, we need to move on to equally or more pressing issues and avoid the theatrics designed to distract us.

3 Habits that Should be ‘Automatic for the Prepper’

The phrase became more than a slogan when R.E.M.’s “Automatic for the People” album was released in 1992. The band borrowed the line from Weaver’s hole-in-the-wall eatery and the rest is history. Rock-n-roll groupies from around the world journey here to eat home cooking and hear “Automatic!” from across the counter. What if you could make prepping automatic?

Life or Death Choices: 35 Excuses That Will Doom The Non-Prepper

As of today it is estimated that ONLY 1% of the population actually goes to much of any effort to prepare and store up enough of what they need to survive a true calamity.  This means a huge majority of the population fails, yes fails, to have much of anything if and WHEN what they need each day to live evaporates quickly.  Most people have no clue what life will be like after the grocery stores close.

While we hope for the best, we must also plan for the worst.

No amount of...

Not 99%

You shout this at the top of your lungs as if you know what it means. Although, if you really are rebelling – that is cutting yourself from the cord of tyrants – you are most certainly not 99% of the population. 99% may  not be implementing the agenda of psychopaths, but 99% of us are also not necessarily doing anything about it. If the odds really did add up to that, the real counter-world would not have the challenge we do to get the real 99%  away from the plasma screen for more than ten minutes to look at what the government that represent...

WASHINGTON – U.S. officials quietly are expressing concern that North Korea could use its “space launch vehicle” to explode a high-altitude nuclear device over the United States, creating an electromagnetic pulse that would destroy major portions of the U.S. electrical grid system as well as the nation’s critical infrastructures.
