Depressed Army Reservist Attacked By Police Force After Calling For Help

This article was written by J.D. Heyes and originally published at Natural News The military spends tens of thousands of man hours annually and no small amounts of money training its personnel to seek help for any feelings of hopelessness or depression they may experience. The Army, especially, focuses on this issue because the suicide rate among its members has hit new highs in the wake of a decade of war in two separate theaters involving multiple deployments for millions of soldiers. That concern has also spilled over into the Guard and...

What The First Few Minutes of World War III Will Look Like *Micro-Flim*

Contrary to conventional thinking, which suggests that an attack on Iran would be restricted only to that country and an easy victory for Western powers similar to that of the first Gulf War, John Galt paints a markedly different picture in How Iran could Win a War against Israel and the United States in One Hour:

National Geographic Doomsday Preppers: Premier Afterthoughts

So last night was the premier of two episodes of Doomsday Preppers on NatGeo. Each episode gave the viewer a look into the prepping lifestyles of different folks who prepare for different SHTF scenarios. Each person (or family) they interviewed, provided information on what they did to prepare. Once they explained most of their preps, the show’s “experts” would provide feedback as to how effective the person’s preparedness program would be in an actual SHTF situation.

If The Economy Is Improving….

Everywhere you turn these days, someone is proclaiming that the economy is improving.  Barack Obama is endlessly touting the “improvement” in the economy, the mainstream media is constantly talking about “the economic recovery” and an increasing number of Americans seem to be buying into this line of thinking.  A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that 37 percent of Americans believe that the economy will improve over the next year, while only 17 percent of Americans believe that it will get worse.  But is the economy...

Is Now The Time To Move Away From Major U.S. Cities?

This is a very good article which should be shared with our readers. As the U.S. economy falls apart and as the world becomes increasingly unstable, more Americans than ever are becoming “preppers”.  It is estimated that there are at least two million preppers in the United States today, but nobody really knows.  The truth is that it is hard to take a poll because a lot of preppers simply do not talk about their preparations.  Your neighbor could be storing up food in the garage or in an extra bedroom and you might never even know...

The Original Inhabitants Of This Land

The Internet is filled with resources which discuss survival and preparedness. One aspect of these two topics that is often overlooked are the folks who actually lived this lifestyle; the original inhabitants of this country. I don’t refer to them as Native Americans because this land was not named America when they were the sole inhabitants. Though there were different tribes, they shared one common goal; day to day survival. There is so much we can learn from the way they lived then, and in some ways, now. Before I continue; we will not...

Family Preparedness Part II: Preparedness And Children

This is part two of our series on “It Is All In The Family Preparedness”. If you ask any parent, they will tell you that they will do anything for their child. This is universal and never changes. The children are one facet of family preparedness that should be discussed more often. Children are our future right? So let’s keep it that way. Let me begin by saying that I do not claim to be a mental health expert or professional, but we can usually come to conclusions from our own personal experiences. Of course each person has a...
