post-6-13851497611468_thumb.jpg

 

Born in Palestine, Texas and raised on the Gulf coast since my father worked in the oil refineries. SurvivalCache WriterJoined the Army 1969 for Artillery OCS and flight school. Viet Nam May 1971 through March 1972 followed by Pershing school and two years in Germany. In Germany my wife and I got into prepping. We had to have a NEO (Non-combatant Evacuation Order) kit to get the depends out of the country in case the ‘evil empire’ headed into the west. Medically retired in April of 1976 for neck injuries I picked up in Viet Nam.

 

Back to school on GI bill. Worked for NASA then to Phoenix in 1978 to be a test pilot and systems engineer for Sperry Avionics. After five years there, data base and systems administrator for the Phoenix Police Department for another 6 years. While in Phoenix, I attended seminary after work and weekends. I was ordained a Permanent Deacon February 28, 1987 for the diocese of Phoenix with the equivalent of a master’s degree in theology. Back to Houston in 1990 to work for Lockheed on the Space Shuttle program. There for 5 years then i spent 5 years working for Oracle as a field support manager then back to NASA as an astrophysicist. (Yeah, I know, I AM a rocket scientist. Sounds cool but not so glamorous as it sounds).

 

Our location makes getting out of town almost impossible since Houston sits on all major roads out of town. Age, health and location make a successful bug out unlikely unless there is plenty of warning. Hobbies are ham radio, astronomy, flying, geology and shooting.

 

We are putting together a retreat location near a nearby town that doesn’t need us to go through Houston. It is a reasonable location – not really isolated but just outside of a small town. The town is between us and Houston and acts as a bit of a buffer. Since it is a farming town it is a fairly efficient block.

 

Favorite firearms, the gun I’m currently shooting. I’m rather partial to lever guns in rifle and pistol chambering and revolvers over semi-auto pistols but whatever I am shooting is my favorite at the time.

Jurugaran,

Welcome aboard. Being an old dinosaur it's good to have a view from the younger side of 25. (I have grand kids your age - Lord I feel old, THANKS!) ;) Sounds like a pretty good kit - you have my sympathies over the conceal carry laws. You listed a .38 Winchester in number 13. Just curious, is that a lever gun? I have a slight preference for Marlin over Winchester (easier scope mounting if I so choose) but I have a Winchester clone in .45 Long Colt (I've given up the battle of trying to get the world to recognize that there is no such thing as a .45 Long Colt; there is only a .45 Colt and a .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol). As a wiser man than I once said, "When you're beating your head against the wall and blood appears on the wall; it isn't the wall bleeding!")

Again, welcome aboard and I look forward to your insights.

Capt Bart,

 

thank you for your wonderful welcome first of all and yes the .38 is a leaver action that belongs to my dad. my kit took me 2.5 years and it's still not up to scratch so i have a lot of work to do still.

ouch grandchildren my age? that must suck.... just remember we thrive on sugar, make sure there's lots of it.

again thanks for the warm welcome

Hello everyone, I'm mr.smashy. I'm moderating the Firearms and the Reloading sections of the forum. You can read my bio and answers to the survival questions here. The long and short of it is that I've been shooting for a long time and I've been shooting competitively for over 15 years. I tend to write firearm and tactical articles for Survival Cache and and I have a large depth of experience with US Service Rifles. I've also been reloading for US Service Rifles for a long time (8 years?). My survival plans center around a long decline, so my preps tend to reflect that, along with preparedness for unexpected disasters. Thanks for your time.

Hello Everyone:

 

My name is Joe Knight and I'm a retired Physician Assistant (PA). I went to the Army PA school and was a battalion surgeon in Germany, then a battalion surgeon in the arctic infantry in Alaska. I retired from the military in 1993, worked as a PA in the civilian world, and retired from civilian practice in 2005 so I could pursue my dream of becoming a writer. I’ve been very successful so far as a medical writer, and enjoy continuing to write.

 

My interests are all over the place – my main interest is survival medicine, but I also enjoy medieval history and working-out with medieval weapons (much to the chagrin of my kids) and hitting the gym three-four times-a-week (the “growing old gracefully” thing is a bunch of BS). I’ve got a B.S. in biology and did some master’s work in geology, so any kind of science interests me. I enjoy history and science writing, but my main interest is medical writing.

 

I would be happy to answer any questions related to survival medicine, as long as you keep in mind that we’re talking SURVIVAL medicine. I won’t tell you how to transplant a kidney or how to do major surgery, but when one is in a survival situation, all kinds of medical issues are going to crop up. Think malnutrition, lice, infections, cold weather and heat injuries – I think you get my drift. Feel free to ask any questions you want – if I don’t feel I can answer them or if I feel what you’re asking is beyond a non-medical person’s capabilities, I’ll be honest and let you know. But there is so much you’re going to NEED to know so you and your tribe can stay healthy, so feel free to ask. I’ve had a lot of medical articles published, so if your question can be answered by reading one of my articles, I’ll give you the link.

 

So, let the fun begin…..

I'll be moderating the General Survival and General Discussion Forums. My background is almost 20 years of U.S. government service doing everything from leading small teams deep in enemy held territory to helping businesses and facilities protect themselves from natural and manmade disasters in major U.S. cities. I don't have all the answers but I have a good basic fundamental foundation and can hopefully at least help point you in the right direction. I also realize that there are some really amazing folks that are readers of the Survival Cache website and have a wealth of knowledge. Between me and the other 200K + readers and contributors I'm sure we can figure out some interesting questions or just have some great discussions about pretty much anything survival related that may of interest. I'm really looking forward to seeing where we end up going with our discussions!

Hi, my name is Juli. I have only just started researching/reading to prepare for TEOFTWAWKI, so have no discernible EDC, BOB's or bug out location/s. I am a single mum of four (three of which are at home and all under age 6), so income is strictly limited and my options for bugging out (considering organisation of three young ones, and all the equipment required, as well as the noise three kids tend to make) are severly limited. I gather, for the moment, that my best option would be to fortify the house and bug in. I am slowly but

surely prepping, beginning with food, but have yet to calculate exact amounts required. But I'm making a

start, and I imagine for now while it's peaceful, I could learn all I can while prepping. Glad to be here!

Hello, I'm Rapture, I have been a fan of survival cache for quite some time now. I started to get interested in prepping after I became aware of the Federal Reserve system and the banking cartel. After waking up and realizing the state of the world and the economy as we know it, I made the decision to prepare for the inevitable. I dove deep down the rabbit hole and my world view has definitely changed. I like to keep up to date with world events and history and am a regular reader of infowars and G. Edward Griffins newsletters. I'm a Christian living in the Florida Keys and compared to most of you I suppose rather young, I'm 17.

Hey guys, I'm Cliff from Central Alabama. I grew up in a rural area outside of Auburn AL. We grew, shot or caught everything that we ate. We went to the grocery (still do) hunted and trapped in the fall and winter, and tended the garden in the spring and summer. Sort of an 1800's style existance but with electicity and plumbing. haha Today, I am the guy that all of my friends come to when anything need to be made or any sort of woodsy question poops up.

My name is Dan, I've haven't been a member too long but I have read every article on the site and have been reading on it for about 6 months now. I would have to say I am a prepper, well want to be one, I'm trying to get a job to get money to prep. I would hope the dollar doesn't fail me until I'm ready but it probably will, I'm fresh out of high school and unsure with future plans to an extent, but am enthusiastic about wilderness survival and a little less about urban survival but still, its a challenge.

 

 

 

My biggest goal is too preserve history for years to come, if I had a million dollars I would be buying Autographs, Coins, Books, Movies, and many other things, and keeping them secure so in 1,000 years or so people can see what our civilization was like if TEOTWAKI happens.

 

My biggest fear is that I will be on my own when SHTF with no materials prepared, I am trying at the moment to get things up and running.

 

My ultimate accomplishment would be to own a 50 acre land lot in the mountains growing food and having it all surrounded by re-enforced walls, with underground bunkers, and above ground bunkers (for different disasters) and time capsules (for preserving history) underground. With a family and all the survival tools I need, so I can pass on the experience to my (someday) children and they can do the same, because maybe TEOTWAKI won't happen in my lifetime but theres.

 

I strongly believe in the saying "The future belongs to those who prepare". Because with 7B people on earth, were going to have to have a population cut soon, and I would rather filter out the (pardon my french) dumb-asses then the people that actually care about the world and have common sense.

 

I used Josh's 17 questions as a reference,

 

 

 

1. Please describe your Every Day Carry?

 

Right now, my wallet, dogtags, and a knife lol

 

2. Favorite pistol?

 

I have never shot a gun but MAN do I want to, I was thinking of a version similar to the navy seals sig sauer 228

 

3. Favorite Concealed Carry Pistol?

 

Well, when I get the chance (not old enuf either yet) I plan on getting atleast a 30 calibre with 15+ rounds for concealed carry, or as a joke I would get one of those .50 cal magnums that hold 5 bullets and can kill a whale.

 

 

4. Favorite Bug Out Rifle or Carbine?

 

I planned on getting a remmington 700, seems like my kinda gun.

 

5. Favorite Rifle or Carbine?

 

Custom built AR-15, or AK47, someday

 

6. Favorite Shotgun?

 

AA-12 But unfortunately its not civilian available

 

7. The amount of food you have at your house?

 

Enough to get us through this month and thats about it, :(, but when I get the chance ima get an atleast 5 acre garden going.

 

8. Name your top 7 items in your Bug Out Bag?

 

Dont have one yet, but when I do, it would be,

A net, A really good knife, A pistol w/ammo, Chocolate, A firestarter, 1 oz of silver, and ciggarettes (I dont smoke but ciggaretes have very good uses when it comes to other people). That was thought of in 60 seconds, I could probably do better tho.

 

9. Describe your Bug Out Location, if you have one?

Depends on the situation, I dont have one planned, but right now im probably more in the MZB category although I hate too be.

 

10. Describe your Bug Out Vehicle?

 

The piece of crap in the yard without a windshield, I hit a moose with it and am still alive, luckily, but its not a bad van (its a 1994 rocketship).

 

11. Describe your Bug Out Bag?

 

Probably is gonna be a military-style bag, or military rucksack (which I have).

 

12. Favorite home defense pistol?

 

N/A Not old enough yet, but I would say the giant-ass scary magnum

 

13. Favorite home defense Rifle/Shotgun?

 

R800 I think is the name, I wish I had one

 

14. Favorite Survival Book?

 

Ive only read the hatchet series, but I just bought "The Road" on eBay.

 

15. Favorite Survival Type Movie?

 

Cast Away, the one with Ice-t was okay, Jurassic park (kinda survivally), I'm sure theres others, but my favorite movie of all time is 300, has nothing to do with survival, just epic.

 

16. Survival Knife?

 

Need a good one, but right now, a spring-assisted open jab knife, although I prefer the Rambo-like knives.

 

17. Survival Tools in Your Kit?

 

Everything I can fit, what I plan on buying soon is seeds and silver.

 

18. Favorite Gun of all time?

 

Cheytac intervention, unfortunately the bullets are $6 each and the gun is $12k and the civilian model is de-accuratized.

 

19. One thing that tics me off about the government?

 

There are too many limits to gun ownership, If everyone owned guns, there would never be a shooting spree? Why? Because everyone would shoot the person, if I couldn't get a gun legally, I would get one illegally, so wont everyone else, why not just make it legal like switzerland.

 

20. Top 3 survival traits + a disadvantage?

 

1. I am very convincing with words and bartering.

 

2. I have a super hardcore ability to resist pain and mental anguish in the situation of starvation or wilderness survival.

 

3. I can improvise very well to make things work.

 

1- I have the tendency to oppose authority when the rules are not (in my opinion) fair.

 

 

Thanks for reading if you did, thats me,

Hi! Im Mallory. Im from TBA in Florida, spent some time in SV Arizona. Im an Air force wife (its also my occupation) mother of two, both of whom are under 3yrs old. Im a born sceptic, of everything. Thats how my mother raised me, and so far ive never been screwed out of anything i wasnt already willing to give.

 

However as time goes on, and things seem to be in turmoil, i dont want to be caught with my pants down. I really dont have anything prepared for a disaster situation as im new to all of this. but i do know some basics of camping (fire/shelter/gathering food) so im hoping thatll be a good foundation to start my preparedness on.

 

I cant answer the 17 questions yet, but im hoping by this time next year ill at least have a "BOB" maybe more. Money's tight. Well thank you for reading all about me, I look forward to tips and pointers to help get me ready for.... whatevers coming.

Hey everyone, I'm CCSir. (For no other reason than that is how I roll.) I've been a prepper/survivalist for almost 7 years now and still have a ways to go. I got into this whole thing after my wife and I went through an ice and snow storm and lost our power for 6 days. Ever since then we have been working to prepare ourselves for just about anything that could happen in our neck of the woods. (Political, natural or otherwise.)

 

Looking forward to being part of the forums. :)

Hello everyone, 2HOW checking in . I'm a former member of the second cavalry and a member of the Border Legion. Avid student of Integrated Close Combat and Global moderator of that forum. I'm a prepper and student of all things related to survival. Been training in combat pistol/rifle since the 90s with enough HTH to survive. C&R license, State license in Armed Protection, state HCP, and the obligatory certifications in Baton, CPR , AED, First Aid, etc. Grew up in South Florida and spent lots of time in the swamp and on the beach as a life guard. Learned to survive in extreme cold in Germany. I'm well rounded but an expert in nothing. Look forward to learning a lot on the forum.

Howdy All,

I’ve been prepping for awhile, although it wasn’t what I would call a fully “organized” process. I always stocked food and other basic items for those “just in case” scenarios and I did a lot of minimalist camping. I then found a true love, Buckskinning, and started learning and practicing the ways of old.

I served a little over 8 years in the Army Reserve, all post 9/11, worked construction since I was about 10 (family business), and have done some security consulting. My military duties started in Counter-Intel, then due to conflict that carried to the home front, I reclassed to generator repair. My overseas tour was Iraq, 15 months in the litterbox. I also did search and rescue with Civil Air Patrol; which gave me a good start on first aid and medical training. During my tenure, we had 3 real world missions for missing/downed aircraft.

I am from the Great Lakes region of the Midwest, born in Indiana (farm country) but lived several years in Florida (6 as a youth and 7 as an adult). I hunt, fish, trap, camp, hike, SCUBA and enjoy living history pursuits. I was lucky enough to have a Dad who taught me my favorite hobbies and was able to prepare me for my military service; he was a LRRP for the 82d. I am married with 4 kids, ages 4-18, so I have the benefit of older kids to help pack our needs but have 2 too young to really help.

I have had to readjust most of my gear as of late because I had always concentrated more on a military/combative survival scenario. I feel the most likely event will be a global depression which leads to mass riots and the free loaders scavenging from the preppers and working class more than they do now.

Woah, Cpt Bart, you've done everything cool man, like literally I've always wanted to be an astrophysicist, theologist, working at NASA and in the army. Damn that is awesome.

Dan,

My life experience has been somewhat, shall we say, eclectic. Some of it was more painful than others ( 5 years in and out of hospitals after Viet Nam) but it put me where I am so I won't complain much. I will note for any want-to-be mall ninjas that being shot at is violently overrated. It is amazing how fast your shooting skills degrade when lead is going in both directions. I used to get so angry with folks who saw some silly movie and then told me that they "knew how I felt"! I've gotten over most of it now but I used to tell them that until they were so terrified that they puked, they hadn't a clue! Oh, well.

I was blessed with great parents, a marvelous wife and generous opportunities. That given, make the best of what opportunity you have and you will do well. Once you get used to looking for opportunities, you will quickly become better prepared. Like those who are younger in the group or are very new to prepping, don't be discouraged by what you don't have. Start with what you most need and build from there, one thing at a time. Get to where you can be on your own, grid down, for 3 days; then look at what you need next to make it a month. Prioritize that and buy in order when you can. If you see something you need on sale, pick it up. A little at a time and you'd be surprised how quickly you can build up your reserves. We all want the ultimate retreat but most of us (myself included) can't get there. If we are blessed, we'll all become very well prepared and then our grand-kids will have to decide what to do with all of grandpa's stuff because nothing ever happened. I doubt that but one can hope.

Hi, my name is Juli. I have only just started researching/reading to prepare for TEOFTWAWKI, so have no discernible EDC, BOB's or bug out location/s. I am a single mum of four (three of which are at home and all under age 6), so income is strictly limited and my options for bugging out (considering organisation of three young ones, and all the equipment required, as well as the noise three kids tend to make) are severly limited. I gather, for the moment, that my best option would be to fortify the house and bug in. I am slowly but

surely prepping, beginning with food, but have yet to calculate exact amounts required. But I'm making a

start, and I imagine for now while it's peaceful, I could learn all I can while prepping. Glad to be here!

Julz,

If I may be so bold, if you are just starting, consider where you live and what the most likely SHTF event will be. Prepare for that first. From there you can build toward other things. I think (just my not so humble opinion) that it is a mistake to try to prep for some generic TEOTWAWKI. You can easily leave gaps in your preps for short term events that are much more likely than TEOTWAWKI and spend all your money as well. Then you are not prepared for either TEOTWAWKI or the most likely things either.

Like the comment about the 45 Colt and the "Long Colt". It's become the mainline marketing nomenclature, as my Vaquero was sold as a "Long Colt". I think they have become so accustomed to just the ACP cartridge, they referred to the true 45 as being "long" with its rejuvenation with CAS and history buffs.

Hello All,

 

Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Ken a.k.a. kilogulf59 and thank you for allowing me to join this most essential and edifying forum.

 

For a bit about me, I am just a typical middle-aged gent who is, and always has

been, interested in weapons (from lapel daggers to ICBMs) and their usage, integrated close combat methods with and without weapons, general and reasonable preparedness, and all things of that nature. In addition, I maintain a great fondness for history, the written word, and little hunting and fishing tossed in as well. Oh and I love to cook.

 

I am somewhat of a political activist/US Constitutionalist (especially the 2nd Amendment), furthermore, I am a Gun Owners of America Life Member, Wisconsin Gun Owners, Inc, and RWVA Member; also, I am the founder of the Integrated Close Combat Forum (ICCF) and Kilogulf59's ICCF Blog.

 

For an insight into my mindset and therefore my thought process, personally I believe in simplicity and the common sense approach in all areas, to include preparedness and confrontational management. It is my express opinion that true combat is not esoteric nor is it convoluted…it is unpretentious, fleeting, and extremely brutal and that man is THE weapon, everything else is simply an object. As founder and administrator of the Integrated Close Combat Forum, which is a free and nonprofit site dedicated to the education of the layperson and professional-at-arms alike, I have striven to emphasize this methodology.

 

I will tell you that I am significantly influenced by the teachings of some of the true innovators in the Combatives field. “Shooting to Live” is my Old Testament and “Kill Or Get Killed” my New Testament, so to speak and no blasphemy intended. Of course, that would make Lt. Col. Fairbairn, Maj. Sykes, Col. Applegate, Col. Askins, Col. Jordan, S.A. Brice, Maj. Grant-Taylor, et al, the disciples should I maintain the religious analogy.

 

As far as my personal background is concerned, I was born and raised in Chicago so, by default, I unfortunately learned a little “confrontational management” the hard way; on the streets, mainly in what not to do…like bleed. My training experience includes Modern Arnis, Miyama Ryu Jujutsu, and FSA style combatives. Formal handgun education was initially through the Chicago P.D. Explorer Program in my youth, later as an adult I attended classes taught by a retired Chicago P.D. Firearms, NRA Certified, and Chapman Academy Instructor and the FSA combat shooting skills that I have learned on my own and with the guidance of a few select instructors in the field. Formal rifle training with the American Legion as a youngin’ and as an adult with the great Appleseed Project, which is the best training around.

 

Take Care and Stay Safe,

Ken aka kilogulf59

 

"REMEMBER – What works for you may not, necessarily, work for me. Keep an open mind!"

, Im Bill, just your average business owner in the most business unfriendly and liberal states in the union, (but the weather is good). Im an avid outdoorsman, have a background in self defense (thai kick boxing/krav maga) and have been prepping in one way or another for many years. Its interesting to note that while most folks like me, or us if you will, tend to gravitate towards similar goals and philosophies, that most of my circle of friends, while conservative and outraged, have not prepped even for a day let alone a week or a year. lots have guns, but use all their ammo at the range. some have food but only for their normal meals for the week. to me a gun with no ammo is simply a piece of metal with potential. anyways, im glad the forums are here, this is a great site and here is how i answer the same 17 questions as the rest.

    • I rant sometimes, but your post is spot on P210SIG.  once a person starts a personal relationship with God / Christ and start to learn about Him you take on the precepts of His life of 33 years to help heal love and he never promoted anything other than peace. Jesus fulfilled over 340 prophesies all bullseye no almost or near misses. Christ followers his disciples were not perfect and are not deified but show as flawed men.  most of the time did not understand until near the end  of His ministry his power and the way you can tell they were truthful 10 died martyred for teaching the word of Christ (New Testament) Judas who made 30 pieces of silver a good sum of money hanged himself for turning Christ in to the Pharisees, Pontius Pilate  Roman governor under the emperor of Tiberius in the 1st century. He is best known as the judge of Jesus's trial, washed his hand as a public rebuttal of charges laid against Christ. Atheist historians about 11 of their written histories or comments actually prove that Christ existed and did miracles but that they were skeptical of. and like skeptics there is no proof that will satisfy and consider it magic or trickery. I understand the draw of Satanism, people become a part of a group maybe their family was broken or troubled giving them a place and a stature that they never had. There are forces that work with any of the people that either work / worship Satan even people that do not think they are following Satan see hear and have experiences because Satan is the ruler of this world, but he is a trickster his only goal is to separate you from Christ, notice none of them live forever or even much longer than anyone else so what did they gain ? Anton Levey who started the satanic church died repeating the phrase, "there is something very wrong" Aleister Crowley he died of pneumonia basically strangled to death, Monday, 1 December. He was cremated at Brighton only a few mourners,  two or three. right after tremendous thunderstorm with lightning, which continued for the whole of the night. looking up sources you would think he was some sort of rock star actually he was a failure he started a few groups but eventually joined some he died broke his rent and bills being paid by a friend  not exactly a beautiful life or clean ending when looking for information you see a lot of worshipers and groupies fawning over his perceived exalted personage IMO. The fact is they loose their soul and the soul is a property of God / Christ it's your property as long as you live like your inheritance if you give it away it is forever lost You / We have the power to move to either place heaven or hell. In Satanism your always working for your craft trying to earn acceptance among your piers and having to give of yourself more and more of time and committing acts more intense lets say, to get more abilities or seemingly so at times. People that have never studied the Bible do not know that it does not deny the abilities of individuals but questions the gain because your trading a beautiful eternity for the few years on earth and then hell, a place you choose, like not listening, running away from your parent and getting hit by a car. Any questions people have look up the witch of Endor whom Saul consulted once God refused to guide him for his refusal to follow Gods commands and take glory for Gods work. God did not harm Saul he just allowed him to do his will and live as he saw fit.  There are a number of incidents in the Bible concerning Seers diviners South sayers or Channelers  necromancers or people that communicate with the dead and your not speaking to who you think you are or rather what. When you really need help Satan loves to mock you by turning his back on you. I consider God / Christ as my Perfect Compass when I rely on the direction it shows me  I am going toward my destination or home when I fail to check my Compass I deviate I am getting further away and eventually lost but, if I see I am on the wrong path and begin to use my Compass I can find my way back.  If you have accepted Christ and all that takes is to accept He is your salvation and Lord / God and come into your life and save you, your in. You will sin again and we all fall short but saying that the below verse should strengthen your faith that your his child and no one can take your from Him / Christ because he is the Savior, judge and redeemer of you having paid the price on the cross ! John 10:28-29 King James Version (KJV) 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
    • Just remember folks, government workers are humans like you & me. We all bleed the same. Everyone is going to die sooner or later. I will fight for what’s right, I’m willing to die for what’s right, & will never bend over or ever give in to the evil masters of this world. Trust has to be earned & I trust no one but my God. My God has always provided what I’ve needed in my daily walk in life.  Do you have a personal relationship with God from above? If not then you have some work to do, to build that personal relationship. If you trust in your government system you are surely doomed. Choose what ever route/road you want to take, the final outcome in your decision will be your own doing & you have no one to blame but the person,that is you standing in front of the mirror.
    • Unfortunately the ass kicking part I think we need to wait until the left starts it because the general public has no idea of the internal hatred of our politicians against the American people. This applies to people in both parties, they have their money tree staked out and anyone that tries to chop it down is in for a hell of a fight -- a dirty fight One example is  2014 Bundy standoff in Nevada, seems a politician wanted the land and the Bundy's got in the way so government indicted Bundy for 16 federal felonies along with  his 2 sons  and anyone that sided with them got arrested. As far as my figuring the government said he owed 1 million dollars for 21 years of grazing cattle I think it roughly comes up to about 47,000 dollars a year to graze cattle on unused land ? does anyone know how much a steer costs just figure about a buck a pound and half is guts  hide and bone so to offset and make a living ranching he would have has to have sold 47 cows a year figuring that you have to have one to make two so he had to have 94 cows and a bull for every 10 to 20 and there is predation cattle die, and then the horses trailers trucks 18 wheelers to take them to the sale barn got to pay the hands they got bills got to pay taxes fuel repairs on equipment lemme see probably tent  a helicopter now and again so just how does BLM figure the cost of wild grass ? all I know is for a long time they killed feral horses saying that the were not a native species they only been here since the 1500 hundreds brought in by the Spanish and there were never that many, but the government said they were a pest to what rattle snakes and gophers THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE !  Strange how when a senator has a problem they call in people with automatic weapons armored vehicles and body armor with writs warrants and handcuffs and will kill you for unused grass land ? hell the cow sh*t only helped he ought to have charged them for fertilizing that miserable stretch of nothing. A federal judge in Las Vegas dismissed charges against Cliven Bundy and his sons, Ammon and Ryan, on Monday Jan. 8, 2018 AFTER 4 YEARS OF HELL ! Judge Gloria M. Navarro of Federal District Court, in a ruling from the bench, said that the government’s missteps in withholding evidence against the three Bundy family members and a supporter, Ryan W. Payne, were so grave that the indictment against them would be dismissed. When the gov decides your a problem they try to destroy you break you financially physically and mentally and use every agency possible t crush you and if that does not work some people _________ figure it out. This is what the left wants a reason to suspend the 2d amendment and go door to door they got plenty of those yellow forms to check through and then they will pressure people to turn in neighbors.  This has been done before in Nazi Germany Poland Czechoslovakia and again and again. socialists do not like armed peasants.  and all your police will roll over or be kicked out or arrested about half the military will be happy to shoot you and be proud. did anyone see the full size targets of a pregnant woman an old lady with a paper sack another was a woman with a kid and these were government approved training targets this was about 10 years ago and then they bought millions of rounds of hollow point ammo that is illegal to use on enemy soldiers but I guess it's fine to use on American citizens I was surprised that they did not make targets with their back side showing or better yet you asleep in your bed.. I was really surprised they did not kill Roger Stone when they picked him up did on purpose pose them in their nightclothes and CNN was on the scene some one leaked the time place and that is a crime. by the time people figure out whats happening their bank accounts, credit cards, phones utilities will be turned off rolling black outs TV won't tell you anything all they have to do is shut  down Fox News and arrest the few like Linbaugh Jones and a few others and basically MSM  will pipe in snooze music and award shows. the few hundred that have any real clout will be dead or in jail remember only just over 500 people run the country and most of the government are democrats who vote their pocket books so don't look for any help there.  Sorry I forgot you live in Canada P210SIG only one person runs your country, the Queen -- just remember how they treated the Indian people for a hundred years and anyone else they ruled over a couple decades ago Australia had gun seizures and people were held without charges a hearing or  bail, there was a movie about it they don't allow it to be shown there I don't know about now. your a subject technically you have no God given rights, only those the Queen allows you. Our rights are a sham because in the fine print they take them away or allow you to be rolled by any one of a hundred agencies and there is one charge everyone is guilty of it's a legal trap built in so if you get out of line GOTCHA ! I tell people and they laugh in my face and call me a liar in not so rude terms, they are ignorant and will die that way and that is 80% of this country -- bone ignorant I'll bet 99% do not know the law I am referring to it's hidden in legalese among 40,000 pages of rules laws and unless you know where it is what it means your a dead duck. and its a federal charge
    • If civil war does not happen in America by 2020 ,I’d be very surprised. In France, it looks like this year, things are ready to rumble & tumble. The yellow vest movement is going on for 14 weeks now , over there. The same movement in Canada is picking up steam as well. PPC—( People’s Party of Canada ). Lots of video footage in You-Tube. TheYellow Vest movement, I call it the logical thinking movement, & citizens have had enough with their Government officials doing nothing, besides filling their pockets on the tax payers dime. Enough talk, it’s time to take action. Actions speaks louder than words. Ass kicking action time, enough.talk, take action for the sake of your country, or you will always be a slave, getting the short end of the stick.
    • If True, The Jussie Smollett case is the most outrageous hate crime ever. and would make him the most sociopathic narcissist today, IMO  because this was clearly not to promote his show or personal sympathy but to enrage the black and GLBTQ communities into violent action against Trump and the republican party and it's supporters. This following comes directly from the FBI's web site. the Bureau ( FBI) became authorized to also investigate crimes committed against those based on biases of actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or gender. they omitted race but, they have extensively used it against those that have murdered people of color. And furthermore a Conspiracy by definition: 1.  An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act. 2. An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action. 3. A group of conspirators. IF, and that if is becoming smaller if every day that the investigation goes on that this was NOT a real attack.  If so this is beyond insane. The backgrounds of the Nigerian brothers needs be investigated  if they had a religious reason of their own, and no matter if guilty do their time and be sent back to Nigeria ASAP. Everyone involved in a crime has their own reasons ambit5ions and agenda money power or any other tangible on non tangible goal.  A lot of what I am about to flip flop through is all dependent on just how the investigation goes and investigations can get sidetracked by politics as fas as I can see this is not the case Chicago is taking this very seriously and asking hard questions all I want is the truth no one should be dismissed if they a victim nor should they be allowed to skirt the law because of their sex / gender sexual preference race creed color religion blah blah blah ... we all know it and should act accordingly --- do unto others. IMHO had this been true it could have ushered in a coup against President Trump, pushing the agenda that anyone that voted for Trump was racist, violent, homophobe  and a Nazi at heart, as well this could have started a race war or at the least sniping and attacks on Trump supporters wearing MAGA clothing or having signage on their vehicles up and to drive by shootings.on said vehicles, hell just wearing red caps, jackets or shirts In truth it would have been a death contract on any American no matter race creed color or gender if you voted for or have clothing or stickers or yard signs  that marked you as a Trump supporter. IMO this could have even started a civil war, this is a hate crime by definition, it was intended to split the black, GLBTQ  and other races against anyone to the right of radical left wing. Children have been attacked and threatened some have called for them to be murdered, this is not a joke anymore if this continues some child is going to get murdered either by association of their parents or because they are wearing a hat that is or looks like a MAGA hat or clothing.  Jussie Smollett case qualifies as a hate crime if true and if so it needs to be further investigated by the FBI and if there is more to it as in others beyond these three  then it should be considered a federal hate crime and in either case federal or state crime he should be punished under the fullest extent by law by prison time hefty fines a long arduous probation and kicked out of the actors guild for good. What we do not know as of now is if it was a conspiracy and, what it's goal was, to me it is rather obvious to create a catalyst to oust President Trump  a environment to promote public shame on Trump supporters and pivot nationalism into a dirty word, promote the left and GLBTQ agendas  as well as launch Jussie Smollett into the public eye. REMEMBER the reworked  quote used by Rahm Emanuel, " never let a crisis go to waste" and this would have created that crisis, the left and race baiters would have seen to it. Kmala Harris who just threw her hat into the 2020 presidential race took it hook line and sinker, with that kind of hatred burning in her heart had this incident been true could you just imagine what kind of president she would make and what horrible laws and presidential shenanigans she could get away with..... and moved us to socialism ! this is not a crisis it is a CRIME make no mistake if anyone does not contact they representatives and demand a full and in depth investigation inot all the possible race political and possibly religious implications look for this to happen again and again till they (the left ) get a race war going. I like to use history as examples,If this attack on  Jussie Smollett had been true, there is no telling how many people could have become victims of the hatred it would generate.  one of the most horrifying was the The Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28th 1914, this  was considered to be the lynch pin that started the first world war, On June 28, 1919, five years to the day after Franz Ferdinand’s death, Germany and the Allied Powers signed the Treaty of Versailles, officially marking the end of World War I, Because of this incident The war killed almost 7 million civilians and 10 million military personnel. THAT IS THE POINT, ALMOST ONE TO ONE RATIO OF CIVILIANS, THE OLD MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE KILLED IN ANY RACE OR POLITICAL WAR ! I think what we have here, Smollett is a modern day Hitler remember Hitler never made rank above private, who tried to use and malign a race of people the Jews (Smollett is using  whites this time) to forward his own agenda I think he is smart, ruthless and is using his unintimidating  looks recent popularity and playing the victim, dog whistling to the leftists to follow his lead. I think he would have jumped at the chance to be the Hitler or Stalin of this time to topple the powers and subjugate the masses and, walked over the thousands if not millions of bodies to get what he wanted fame, fortune, power and prestige or, he could just be a looser moron -- but calling him that would be racist, wouldn't it ? I'll just go with he's a master mind.
