Pride, before the fall.

Recommended Posts

I have a weakness. I am proud. It feeds my pride every time I reach on of the preparedness goals I set. Nothing wrong with that. But my pride makes me answer when being quite would better serve my needs.Oh here i don't mind telling how much ammo or preps I have, here I'm nobody. But in my home area I have a name and address and would NEVER talk so freely about my preps(being grey is the term I think) but the small stuff trips me up...because of my pride.

 

Some of the questions I have let my pride answer that have marked me.

while dove hunting with some fellows;

"I can't get this shotgun to feed right." my pride stepped in and broke down the gun and cleaned it , reassembled and it worked fine...i was proud. Until the fellow said "DAMN, you know your guns(debatable) I'll bet you have an arsenal." Now a guy I barley know is aware I have multiple firearms.

 

At the cafe a group of 30 and 40 year olds talking about the old days when one says;

"I would can but who knows how to do that stuff anymore." my pride answers the call, not only walking this fellow threw thee steps, but adding I have ALL the canning equipment.

"well when things get tough I know who to visit for dinner." he replies

 

while I was working a lady ask "what kind of flowers are these?" I say "sweet golden rod" my pride adds "They are edible" She acts interested so my pride starts naming of all the edibles close by and how to use them. she is impressed stating. "you'll never go hungry". I wonder if she will remember the plants I named ...or just my name?

 

While it is honorable to teach it is not very grey. Do you remember you favorite teachers name? I do.....He is one hell of a prepper. If things get really bad maybe he wouldn't mind if I...

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
