Let The Games Begin!

I think of the current situation in the middle-east as a chess match between the USA and NATO and Russia and her allies. One makes a move, then the other. The West made a mess out of the middle-east, then Russia steps in to clean it up, then Turkey shoots down a Russian fighter jet, then Russia really blows the heck out of Turkey’s anti-Assad allies in Syria, then Turkey blocks Russia’s ships in the Black Sea(?). Now Iraq wants us gone, for which I cannot blame them. We screwed them over enough. Guess who is being courted to take our place? Russia. Clowns verses KGB agent, guess who wins. Seriously, what we have to call reality would make a great script for a comedy if so many people weren’t actually dying. When future generations look back at us, they will wonder how we have become so stupid. The more advanced (supposedly) our civilizations have become, the more effective we are at killing each other. At least with swords and spears it took real time and effort to kill each other, now we have nukes and can turn whole cities into a wasteland with a press of a button.  In fact, we don’t even have to be at war to nuke each other, Fukushima is doing a fine job of irradiating the planet. Slow, sure, but effective enough.

So now the West and Russia are putting their pieces in place for a heck of a show down. Sadly, this isn’t a game and a lot more people are going to die.

Stay alive and stay aware.

Because It Doesn’t Affect Me

That’s what my boundsoul coworker told me when I asked if he was aware of what was going on between Russia and Turkey and he told me ‘No.’ Of course I replied something to the effect of ‘Not until the nukes start flying.’

We are literally watching the chess pieces being put into place for what may be the worst combat conflict in the known history of mankind and people don’t care because it doesn’t affect them. It’s over there. I still have my beer and The Walking Dead will be back on in February. Electric still works. Ginny still fills me in on the latest town gossip at church. We still have IPhones. They believe that what’s over there will stay over there. Problem is, it may not stay over there. What will all these people do then? Our Clown-in-Chief fired all the good military officers and put in yesmen. We didn’t win anything in the middle-east, we just messed everything up. Russia blew the hades out of ISIS in just a few days more than we did in a few years. Are our commanders that lazy or is Russia actually stronger? Of course, it is my personal belief that the West, especially America, is actually supporting ISIS and other terror groups instead of really fighting them. So, what happens when it all blows up in our face?

America and Turkey are allies. If Turkey starts a shooting war with Russia, and mind you, they already shot first, we’ll join in one way or another and so will NATO. However, Russia is not alone and their good buddy China is no slouch anymore. Iran will not let the problems around them affect their home turf without a fight. Slowly, but surely, more and more nations are looking to Russia for help. Why? After looking at the mess we made in the middle-east, we have to be either extremely narcissistic fools or extremely psychopathic narcissists. Of course, anyone reading this knows that the whole thing is over the petrodollar and propping up what’s left of our economy while the bankers rob us blind. With America’s tainted reputation for being a global bully, we may actually find ourselves nearly friendless when the bear roars and the dragon breathes fire. So, do events taking place on the other side of the planet affect us? I would say that the answer is ‘yes.’

Be in prayer.

Storing Milk: Is It Possible?

I don’t know about you, but powdered milk is not on my taste-buds’ A-list. Consequently, I don’t store a pinch of it. Powdered milk also doesn’t have a great shelf life, though I’m sure some have figured out how to extend it. Here is something I don’t see on any lists or sites: canned evaporated milk! I mixed it 50/50 with water, chilled it, and there was no difference in taste with that of real milk. Being canned, it should last a few years, right? Not forever, of course, but longer than powdered milk I would think. AND it tastes better. Canned evaporated milk has been on my stock up list for a few months now. It’s super cheap when I find it at discount grocery stores, 4 for a buck for the mini cans and 2 for a buck for the veggie can size. At the one dollar store I go to, it’s a dollar for the veggie can size. Not exactly super expensive, $10 even from the dollar store would get me enough milk to stretch just over a month if I’m careful with how much I use. Just thought I’d share this tidbit of info, if anyone has more to add, please comment!

New Road In Life

Well, I finally got my own slice of land, a whole 7.42 acres of woods. I am staying out here, sometimes in my tent, sometimes in my car. A new adventure here at my new home. I plan to live life as close to the earth as possible, though it will be  a struggle to get there. Right now my poor, bedraggled car also serves as my power source and I have a slight raccoon problem, but I’m tough enough to stick it out. Being single again gives me more freedom to try and test things. Hope everyone has a great week!

SHTF Survival

Exactly.

rmactsc

Tactics are an important element when the SHTF.  Here are some tactics to consider as the need arises.  Move quietly, don’t travel in a straight line, avoid main roads, never go back the same way that you came, never use the same ambush site twice and remember if you can see the enemy the chances are that the enemy can see you too.

Avoid predictable patterns, watch carefully for trip wires and booby traps, do not step on twigs as the sound of a twig breaking will travel a considerable distance.  Avoid using or wearing shiny objects and stay away from locations which leave you vulnearable such as alleyways and dimly lit parking lots.

Pay attention to sounds.  Birds suddenly moving away from a location are an indicator of movement.  Know your enemy and keep your weapons within arms reach.  Your mission will dictate your weapons choices; there is no such thing…

New Rochelle, New York removes flag as ‘offensive’ Tea Party symbol | WashingtonExaminer.com

A symbol of patriotism trashed. I am disgusted yet again.

The Grey Enigma

Yet one more reason that Westchester County, New York, should secede along with all 5 boroughs of NYC plus Long Island, float into the Atlantic Ocean, and tectonically merge with France or some other Euro-socialist shit hole.

Fig. 1: Offensive speech blowing in the breeze

A veterans organization in a New York town is fighting for its right to fly a patriotic flag after the city council refused to let the group display the flag, calling it a symbol of the Tea Party with right-wing connotations.

The United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association replaced a tattered American flag at the New Rochelle Armory, flying the Gadsden flag underneath it. The bright yellow “Don’t Tread On Me” flag has been used by the Navy and Marine Corps since 1775.

New Blog!

Hi, everyone, I’ve been working on a special little project: a story blog! Basically, I’m writing a collection of posts that form a story, or a novel of sorts in blog form.  Look for Copperhead Militia, you’ll find it. Not sure if I can post the link, as this is a freebie blog and I got in trouble for that already. Hope you like, tell me how I’m doing!

Boots

Everyone here knows the importance of a good pair of boots. The type of boots doesn’t matter, as everyone has their favorite. The main thing is finding the type of boots you like that are of good quality and preferably cheap. We all know that in a long term SHTF situation that boots will become worth more than gold. Even good quality boots will wear out relatively quick with all the hard work you will have to do to survive a post collapse world, so it makes sense to stock up on boots now, right?

My favorite style of boots are the military combat boots because they are rugged, reliable, comfy, and have awesome ankle support. Most of the time I wear an old pair of hand me down jungle boots. Unfortunately, one of them flap-jacked on me. I refuse to throw them away because the treads are still great, so I duct taped the toe shut. For chores outside in the winter, I have a $30 pair of Gortex lined combat boots of good quality that I had found at a gun show. I also own a pair each of black and white mickeys. I have an undisclosed amount of boots that I will refer to as my ‘extra pair’.

I rarely buy a pair of boots at full cost. I find them cheap at gun shows, army surplus stores, and ebay. I once found a pair of size 10 combat boots in decent shape at a salvation army store. They were were super cheap and not in bad shape. The only bad part was that I’m a size 7, not a 10. I’ve gotten so cheap that I refuse to pay more than 30 bucks for good quality boots anymore because I’ve been blessed with that ‘extra pair’.

To get rid of any little nasties, spray a water and bleach solution into the inside. That should kill anything like fungi or bacteria. Don’t forget to break in you boots before storing them. If you have to run and grab a pair on the fly, you want them pre-broke. Lol, I shouldn’t have to tell anyone here to keep them oiled. In fact, boot oil and extra laces should also be on your stock up list.

As always, may God grant you all peace.

Raiding The MORP

This is for entertainment purposes only. Please do not actually try this. I hate disclaimers to, but I don’t want to get in trouble.

MORPs, or ‘mobile organic resupply pods’ and best known as ‘zombies’. In the event of a major catastrophe in which the rule of law has completely disappeared and supplies could be hard to get, raiding MORPs will be the next best thing. And they’ll often come right to you, trying to steal what you have, so you won’t have to go very far. All you have to do is be smarter than they are, and as far as I know, the average zombie often doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together. At least, none of the zombies I know personally. However, some MORPs may have tactical training, so be careful. It is relevant to note that in the event of a foreign invasion, the enemy MORPs will have better training and better logistics that most of us American patriots, but that is a different ball game.

Say a gang of maybe 30 zombies are headed your way and refugees are able to tell the general direction in which they are coming from. You can then scout the zombies and formulate a good plan to get them before the arrive at your doorstep. Know your area of operations. Is there an area that you can funnel them into? Do you have good ambush points? Once your plan is formed, tweaked, and executed, then we can get to the business as mentioned in the title. Raiding dead zombies may be disturbing to some, but considering the fact that they will have things you need, toughen up. Remember, the zombies tried to kill you first. Don’t go for just the guns, ammo, and weaponry, take everything. Blood washes off, material can be disinfected from the zombie infection virus. Boots will be at a premium SHTF. Even if they don’t fit you, they can be bartered for things you need. Good heavy coats, gold and silver jewelry (wedding rings), decent jeans, even food and glasses can be salvaged. Remember, your first responsibility is to yourself, your family, and your group. Do everything you can to take care of them.

May God grant you peace and that things never get this bad.
