  2. Excoastie I agree with you that there are a lot of liberals who do not want to abolish the second amendment but the extreme liberals are the ones that are controlling the media and taking advantage of every "gun violence" incident to push they're socialist views on us. But capt Bart was correct. There are to many problems in government today. First off labels. Who cares if yor a dem or repub that is where most problems start. Just because I lean towards one side or the other on certain viewsxdoesnt mean that I am a bad person because tey happen to be associated with the Republican Party. In fact to be honest my views are considered extreme by both party's. I have family and friends tell me all the time that I am an extremist. When In reality my believes are exactly what capt Bart just wrote out above. The gov should just be there to defend us and take care of a few smaller things. The rest should be left up to the states, the people and the churches. Food stamps and wic should not exist. Each individual state should have their own program or none and let the people of their state take care of those in need. Things like food stamps, aka eBt, and wic are nothing but a drain on the gov and its people but also an excuse for people to be lazy. I deal with food stamps every day of the week through my job and the one thing that I hae learned is that the overwhelming majority of those people on these programs do not need it. They are just on it to have more money to put towards all their other vises and junk. But what does the gov keep doing forcing money into this program every single year putting us further into debt. Now this is just one program of many that are a failed program of the goveremt but because there are so many Americans who "benefit" from this program they don't say anything. Te problem is that te governtn is raising a bunch of lazy people who have to rely on them because they don't know what hard work is that way their socialist coews can be inches forward on a daily basis and the majority of people don't care because it allows them to continue to be lazy. Just my not so humble opinion.

    Just for a good laugh.

    Saw this and just thought me fellow prepping friends would get a good chuckle out of this.
  6. Okay so started digging around the net a little and found this magazine talked about on a few other forums and iris kinda up in the air where you can grab it. Some folks have had luck at book stores such as Barnes and noble a few at places like target and Kmart. But the one interesting thing I found on a couple of sites is that this magazine is only going to be printed annually. Also if you go to new pioneers Facebook page it shows 75 different magazines they print but American frontiersman is not on their list. So after all of this it is just a crap shoot. Keep looking different places and you might maybe find it.

    Gun grab Part..2..coming soon..

    Rayz couldn't agree more. My wife when we had our daughter started talking about we're not spanking and just doing time outs and talking nicely to our children and I told her no were not. I had too many friends growing up and I many friends today that try that bullsh*t and it just flat out doesnt work. Children need to be held to a high level made to respect their parents and other adults and if they don't a good rear end tanning should be enforced. I also believe, although it will NEVER happen that teachers and or principles should be allowed to spank our children when they are being brats as well. Just my not so humble opinion.
  8. Now that looks like fun and something I'd do Matt. As well it looks like something's wife would make fu of me for wanting to do. Lmao.

    Quick questions

    Rayz is correct we would quickly turn into the mindless wordless drones those in gov want us to be. Lmao jk jk jk. The one thing I've learned quickly is that there is no one word answer around this group of fellas. There's 10 different answers or 10 different methods or 10 different ideas. But not a bad idea.
  13. Well I was thinking freeze for at least two days mylar bag and oxy absorb it. Than into 5 gallo buckets?

    prayers out To Connecticut

    First off my prayers and sympathies go out to all affected by this ruthless coward else's act. I know that no amount of words could ever take the pain and anguish from them but my prayers are for them all tonight. Now before I go getting accosted read my entire message before judging. I am the father of a almost three year old little girl so this struck me pretty hard today knowing that she could be in this situation soon, god I hope not, but could be. While I could never fathom doing what this lunatic did I almost feel the kids who did not make it may be better off. While I never NEVER like to see a child pass away it hurts me even more to see Wong in true pain and torment. The poor children who witnessed any bit of this and survived are scarred hurt in pain and going to be tormented the rest of their lives. Once again I am not saying that I am glad or happy that 20 five year old children, babies at that, lost their lives I do feel as though they are the blessed because they will feel no pain in heaven holding the good lords hand. As well my deepest condolences go out to the parents. If this were to happen to me I would go off the deep end. I would not be able to function let alone ever be able to trust another single human being again in my entire life. This kid was seriously messed up and no amount of medication or counciling could have helped him. It doesn't make anything he did right and I am in NO way defending him but what we as Americans need to do and we who believe in the 2nd amendment need to do is push to defend our rights to own and carry guns to try and

    Mylar bag thickness

    Just curious what thickness y'all have seen the best results with in regards to your mylar bags. I've been doing a lot of research and am reading pros and cons to 5 and 7 mil thickness bags.

    Mylar bag thickness

    Thanks EC. I assumed since I was going to be using 5 gallon buckets that there was no need to get the 7 mil bags and pay the higher price.

    The Fiscal Cliff Explained

    I'm all for pulling our troops out and minding our own business. When our founding fathers set up our government and created this perfect "republic innshich we stand" they had no intention of us getting our noses in everyonenelses business. Nowndont get me wrong j dont take me wrong I love knowing that we a people that isnalways willing to helpnfhe down trodden but once again we were not set up to handle that obligation. Bottom line pull all of our troops. Mind our own d*Mn buisness. And worry about getting our own country straightened up. My not so humble opinion

    Food rotation shelving

    What I am actually in the process if building is some shelving that looks like the can racks at the grocery store. Where I can load the cans on the top at that point they will roll to the back of the shelf and drop down and than roll to the front of the shelf underneath where you load them. While it would be easier to just build a normal flat shelf or one were you load from the back I like the idea of these and they are very easy. I like the idea and concept of working smarter and not harder. So while I may work harder for the initial build I will not have to work hard in the long run of things. Il try to post some pictures when I am done but it may be a few weeks before the project is complete.
