*&$%ing Stupid People

A &*#$ing idiot now claims to own the sun.

Read the story here:

Spanish Woman Claims Ownership Of The Sun


Now every single time someone gets sunburned, let's sue her under product liability laws. She has posted no user warnings or even issued a manual on the proper use of her product. Skin cancer anyone? Blindness, cataracts, faded paint on your home or car?

Anytime a farmer's crops fail due to vagaries of weather that can be traced back to solar influences, let's sue her.

If the sun isn't available for your party that you intend to have at midnight, let's sue her for issuing a defective product.

I am so looking forward to the day when people again start to die for their stupidity.

Browning Hi Power Armorer's Course

I'm having to work at night again. Things have gotten backed up and I haven't had time to post, or read the blogs.

A friend of mine sent me these links to download a video presentation on the Browning Hi Power, a 9 MM semi-auto pistol. The video is apparently from AGI, American Gunsmithing Institute.

It is a very nice video, and if you'd like to learn more about the functioning of this particular weapon (and semi-auto handguns in general), it is worth watching.

You may find that there is no audio on playback in Windows Media Player. If that happens, try another player, or make sure you have the proper codecs installed.

An Answer To The TSA: Wear Your Codpiece

"Don't touch my junk"?

Why even let them get close enough to touch your junk? Medieval man has provided us with a solution to the closet homosexuals hanging out in airports just panting for a chance to cop a feel.

It's called a "codpiece".

Now, we're not talking about some flimsy piece of fabric or those leather affairs that gay men like to prance about in.

No, we're talking about cold, hard, steel.

Let the bastards grab this instead.

Next time I have to fly, I'm showing up fashionably dressed for the occasion, just like the fellow below.

And if you're the parent of a small child, and don't want to see him or her molested like this poor kid by Chester The TSA Molester, make sure he or she is also suitably attired.

Diesel Queens - Codpiece Nation

Even the Chinese are getting in on the act. Watch this hilarious video below.

List Of 111 Companies Receiving Waivers From ObamaCare

Just a quick post. Been buried at work again.

It took me a while to find the actual list everyone was talking about, and if you're in the same boat, here's a link to the list on the HHS website.

Approved Applications for Waiver of the Annual Limits Requirements of the PHS Act Section 2711 as of November 1, 2010

More people to avoid giving money to. Looks like dinner at Ruby Tuesdays' and Cracker Barrel is out.

Veteran's Day 2010

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863

This day, given what is transpiring around all of us common people, - not just here in The United States but all around the world - I think this address is particularly poignant. We've struggled against the forces of oppression since the dawn of time, and our struggles continue today.

Our nation, and Liberty herself, are in peril. We must each do our part, however we see it, to defend what is ours. Let not the sacrifices of those who have gone before us vanish into the past, rather let them be a guiding light for the labors ahead.

May God Bless those who have sacrificed their lives in defense of the noble proposition that all men are created equal, and endowed with unalienable rights among which are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

If anyone ever asks you for more proof that the world, as we know it, is coming to an end.....just send them to this website.

Coffee: $78.00 for 7/10 of a pound


Check out Food Price Projections at the site, and make sure you click on the link inside the article for their special report.

Already many of us have seen some indication of rising prices at the super market. It is imperative, if you are able, to stock up on staple items like corn meal, sugar, flour and similar items.

If you can't afford to spend a ton of money on all of the items at once, consider a group purchase with friends, family members, or like minded church members. If you pool your resources and arrange a bulk purchase through your local market, you may get a better deal.

Discuss this possibility with your compatriots and then approach the store manager of your local market.

If you are in a larger urban area, or even a suburban area, look for the local "Brown Bag" programs. Here in California, call 1-800-510-2020 to find a near by distribution center. Similar programs are run in other states.

If you are unfamiliar with "Brown Bag" programs, these programs distribute food stuffs to those 60 and over free of charge. There is often no means testing, and frequently from what I have heard, many of the foodstuffs go unwanted. The food is often donated by local markets as they get close to code date (not yet expired) or are surplus.

Even if you are well off and do not need to take advantage of such programs, I'm sure you know of some who could use the extra help, and it is a good way to stock extra supplies for the future. This program is often the end of the line for the items being distributed, and they are either discarded or returned to the vendor for disposal if unclaimed.

Please be sure to follow safe food storage procedures. A very good FAQ for those interested in long term storage can be found HERE. At the top of the page are links to get the same FAQ in PDF or in Microsoft Word Rich Text format.

More Books To Download

Ever want to be a cobbler?

How To Make A Shoe

The Art Of Boot And Shoe Making

For those of us who never learned the proper manner in which to pack a horse or dog.

American Boy's Handybook Of Camplore And Woodcraft

I must admit this is one of my favorites. The language used is an endless source of amusement.

One thing to keep in mind is the age of these tomes. Language has changed a great deal in 150 years.

Please take the time to read through them before something goes wrong while you still have the internet available to define such terms as "treacle". I understand that many on here will already know what treacle is, but here in California, I've never heard anyone utter that word except for my late father.

Also, I understand that some of the language may prove to be offensive to some. Describing native peoples as "painted savages" is unacceptable today, but again, please take into account the age of the books when you read them.

News, Books For You and New E-Mail

There's a new e-mail addy on the right side bar near the bottom.

Here's a bunch of old books from the mid 1800's through the early 1900's. If you click on the link, it should open the file in your browser.

A few people have expressed having difficulty with being able to open PDF files within their browsers. If you have this problem, simply right click on the link and click "save as". It will download the file to where ever you tell it to go.

Some of you involved in the agricultural business may object to some of the information in the books. I understand, but please also understand the information worked for the people of that time. And a time may come again when we won't have the luxury of modern systems and we may have to revert back to less than perfect modern systems.

But first, the news.

I don't know how many of you follow Urban Survival and the Web Bot Project (Wikipedia explanation here), but George and Cliff have made some alarming updates to what they believe will start tomorrow, November 5 2010 at 2:30PM Pacific Time.

Personally, I'm very concerned with some very senior people in our government taking extended trips outside the borders of our nation given that we just experienced an election with some serious overtones. I'm also concerned about the money being spent on these trips and the security measures being employed. There's also the question of some of the sites Obama has chosen to visit.

34 Warships To Accompany Obama Overseas.

Coconuts Being Removed From Trees To Protect President. ????!!!!

Bomb Proof Tunnel Being Constructed For Museum Visit

$200 Million PER DAY For Obama's India Visit

Obama To Visit Indonesia's Largest Mosque

Then there's the renewed warnings as a result of Bernanke's latest shenanigans. $600 Billion to everyone who have already stolen most of what Americans had.

Biggest Risk To World Economy - Central Bank Of China

Brazil Retaliates In Currency War

Backlash Building Against Federal Reserve Monetary Policy

Glenn Beck on $600 Billion Throw Away

And rumors of Bank Holidays are again surfacing

Warning Of Possible Bank Holiday

I've been trying to gather as much old knowledge as I can in light that there is a serious chance that the world may go dark as the result of a Coronal Mass Ejection. A serious CME has the potential of taking out the modern world's infrastructure and throwing us back technologically a hundred years or more.

Back in the day, mid 1800's to 1900's, before modern technology gave us chemical fertilizers and methods of manipulating farming environments, people had to really work at growing crops.

Here are two books on a couple of staple vegetable crops.

How To Grow Alfalfa

Alfalfa is a valuable crop for both human and animal feeds, including bees.

How To Grow Cabbage

Known for containing anti-cancer compounds, and vitamin C content.

A few of books on bee keeping since you have all that alfalfa.

How To Keep Bees

How To Control Foulbrood

Now you have that honey....

Altering Your Reality: Deleting Objects In Real Time From Streaming Video

Watch this video.

Look at 0:47 seconds into the video. Look at the mirror.

Pay attention to the segment featuring the drain 1:48 into the video. Notice the distortion.

What does this mean?

So-called "live news footage" can and will be altered to support the position of The Powers That Be.

Homeless camps - gone. Riots - gone. Police beatings - gone. Planes crashing into buildings - gone.

With no video evidence, or video that lacks critical components, who will you believe?

More importantly, who will the courts believe.

Hidden Fuel Reserves

They're out there.

Can you spot them?

Most people think of gas stations as places to get fuel. The more creative will recognize other vehicles as a possible source. Most of these will be found along the beaten path. The major roadways, and population centers.

But let us say you're traveling the back roads to avoid the milling and violent crowds attempting to flee whatever has befallen society.

Here's a couple of photos to get you started thinking.

Some of you are wondering exactly WTF is this? Well, it is a remote cell site for one of the large cell phone companies out there. This one is located in the California Delta region. There are many of these sites scattered throughout the Delta.

See that?

210 glorious gallons of diesel thoughtfully suspended about 24 feet in the air to make siphoning easy indeed. All that is standing between you and it is a chain link fence and a padlocked gate.

If you're wondering what a huge generator and all that fuel is doing 24 feet in the air, this area has seen serious flooding before.

As cell phone service has spread across the globe, even in some really remote regions, a reliable method had to be developed to power the remote sites since local power can't always be relied upon. That usually means a backup generator and a store of fuel.

My understanding is that these sites are equipped with a bank of backup batteries that will service the site for a period of time before the generator kicks on. I've never been able to find out exactly how long the batteries will last before the generator starts, although if I understood the guy I was talking to, the generator will recharge the batteries and then shut off again.

TracFone coverage map

Sprint PCS coverage map

As one can see from these maps, coverage of cell networks reaches into nearly every part of the continental United States. Now, cell providers often have agreements between themselves that allow customers of rival networks to access their network towers for a fee or reciprocal privileges.

TracFone rents bandwidth from most cell providers, hence you can see their coverage is fairly extensive. Yet, Sprint offers coverage in areas that even TracFone can't service.

You'll notice both providers have a huge hole in the coverage of the state of Nevada. There's a reason for that. That area is known as The Nevada Test And Training Range, part of which is the infamous Area 51. Hopefully you won't be bugging out across the worst part of The Great Basin Desert.

In remote areas where the landscape is relatively flat (think Kansas), cell sites are usually no more than 23 miles apart to maintain adequate overlapping coverage, and can be as close as 3 miles depending on terrain. They are usually located off of established roadways or fire trails that are accessible even during the winter. The entrances may be gated or disguised to discourage casual trespassers.

Inside cities, they can be as close as less than a quarter mile due to the signal attenuation caused by the structures in the area. But we're not worried about that, because you ain't there. I hope.

As you are out and about planning your escape, hunting, backpacking, or whatever outdoor activity you enjoy, you might want to look along your way for cell sites and make note of their locations.

Cell site planners have become more crafty in attempting to make their towers blend into the surroundings, and disguise them to appear like local trees. So, keep your eyes open.

We Are The Enemy

I guess Obama has once again admitted he's an illegal alien, although in a offhanded manner.

Last week, Obama urged Latino voters ( and I think it is fair we translate this into "illegal alien" voters) to "punish our enemies".

'If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, "We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us".' - President Obama, Univision interview, Oct 2010

Why I think it is fair that we translate this to a direct message to the hordes of criminals within our borders is Obama's unwavering efforts to drive the final nails into America's coffin. In that one sentence, Obama has once again promised to "reward" those who aid and abet his criminal activities, and threaten those who have withdrawn their support or never supported him in the first place.

"Issues that are important to us." Us, not all of the American people, but a very small subset of the public. Once again, seeking to factionalize the people of this country. Us, somehow he manages to speak to each of those factions and makes them believe that he is addressing them and their interests.

The support of these factions continue to undermine America's foundations.

All one needs to do is look around at the policies that Obama's "Hope and Change" have brought to law enforcement.

Voter Fraud: Illegal Alien Voters Ignored By Justice Department

No Proof Of Citizenship Needed To Vote

DOJ To Send Election Observers To Arizona

DOJ Drops Black Panther Voter Intimidation Case

There is more. Too much to list. Tampering with electronic voting machines, ballot manipulation, lost and misdirected absentee ballots.

Obama isn't just pandering to illegal aliens and their supporters.

Check out Obama's "black folks stay at home" comment below:

It's disgraceful.

It seems that the only group Obama left out was the Three Percenters.

And that's just fine.

We're the Enemy.

But we knew that all along.
