Dear Preppers and Survivalists,

I finally did it!

Prepper: Surviving the Tough Times Ahead has been downloaded to Smashwords. You can purchase it at Smashwords in epub, mobi (kindle), Irf for $14.99.

Once it goes through the process at Smashwords it will be available at the popular e-book retailers.

I am working on a blog that will provide links to videos, downloads, and other information for folks.

So, ...

Buy the book.

If you have any helpful suggestions, contact me.

Weekly Dose of Doom and Gloom, Part Two

Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Engelbert Reineke

... Of the Mind
I believe certain things.

Well, ...

It seems our beliefs could doom us all.

io9 - The Anthropocebo Effect Explains How Our Minds Can Destroy the World

I can hear, ...
But, I'm a prepper!

Yes, I know this but, you and your family need to make sure that you are storing suitable supplies for the disasters that your family are preparing for and that these supplies are rotated.

So, ....

These supplies will be usable during an event.

Not, ...

Water that isn't rotated, food your family will never eat, or a bunch of junk

io9 - Are You Becoming a Hoarder Without Realizing It?

Lastly, ...
A funny, at least to me, for y'all.

io9 - Cartoons About Our Relationship To Facebook Are Clever But Depressing

There seems to be a lot of possible doom and gloom going on. I believe that is a result of our ability to be 'connected' 24/7/366 (gotta remember those leap years ; - )

With that said, ...

If you or a family member are having feelings of hopelessness or symptoms of depression, please seek professional help, sooner than later.

Weekly Dose of Doom and Gloom

Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Georges Seguin (Okki)

Nine and Ten
Kind'a suck

So, ...

I would like to add Intelligent Robots and Socialism.

Just kidding, ...

Intelligent Robots would be cool.

Ooops, ...

I may have been wrong.

io9 - 10 Horrifying Technologies That Should Never Be Allowed To Exist

BlackListed News - Will the Internet of Things Be Another Surveillance Nightmare?

O.K., ...
Something you and your family may be able to actually use.

BlackListed News - The Number Of Volcanic Eruptions Is Increasing And That Could Lead To An Extremely Cold Winter

The On-Going Pandemic
Just to remind you. There is still an on-going pandemic in this country and the world.

io9 - The HIV infection rate among African American and Latina women in Southern states ...

Just to Remind You
It's getting that time of the year, so I will be consolidating the blog.

So, ...

If you have a blurb you want to save, you better do it now.

Friday's Thought and Other Stuff

Dear Preppers and Survivalists,

illustration by
George Alfred Williams

I have been reading America: Imagine the World Without Her by Dinesh D'Souza. It has been an easy and quick read when I get a chance to sit down and read it ; - )

For those looking to rebut some of the things folks are saying about our country, you will want to read it. To me, the book also points out some potential political problems, coming down the road.

So, ...

Make sure you vote, this coming election.

Oooh, sorry, I forgot my point for this blurb.

It is, ...

Our philosophy can be an asset or a detriment during an event.

Warning: Politics Ahead
One of the most dangerous political issues currently being thrown around are Reparations for Blacks. It seems this historical issue (it's been suggested since the civil war, one advocate was W.E.B. De Bois) is raising its specter, again.

To recap: Some folks (just not 'blacks') are calling for 'Blacks' to be compensated for slavery.

Why is it dangerous?

First, it pits folks against each other over the color of their skin.

Second, some folks are perverting this issue to advocate for giving 'poor' people (black and white) money.

Third, other folks are using this issue to advocate for an increase and increasing government programs to 'help' the poor. (Socialism)

Fourth, ... There's probably more, but I can't think of it, yet.

Gawker - What Reparations in America Could Look Like

George Mason University: History News Network - Reparations for Slavery? It's an Old Idea
Reparations for Slavery? It's an Old Idea

American Redoubt and the Redoubt of the East
Sooner or later, you're going to find "Survival Blog" and "The Survivalist Blog," if you haven't already.

To save you time, they both suck ; - )

But, that's not my point. My point:

Both blogs advocate relocating to some mythical place around Idaho (west) and Tennessee (east) to free yourselves from perceived tyranny such as high taxes, over-reaching government bureaucrats, and homeowner associations gone wild.

That's a mistake.

Think ghettos, genocide, and invasions.

Learning From History
Y'all know; I try to look to the past for information about surviving possible events.

Well, ...

One of my recent sources for history lessons is ...

Wednesday: 24 September 2014, Part Four

Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,

Cpl. James L. Yarboro, USMC

There Comes a Time, ...
When you and your family will start thinking about adding to your family skills. One of these simple skills, I would like to suggest, is weapons repair.

Of course, ...

You're going to need tools ; - )

WeaponsMan - Tool Deprivation Syndrome: Excuses and Gunsmithing

The military-type weapons that most folks have in their arsenal are easily repaired by switching out parts. The same goes for the newer citizen-type weapons.

So, ...

You will only need basic tools, as WeaponsMan suggests, and a few carefully selected spare parts.

Just to remind ya.

GSIEP: Firearms for Preppers - AK-47 series Rifle

GSIEP: Firearms for Preppers - M16/AR-15 series Rifle, Part Two

Been There; Done That
Most events have already happened.

So, ...

I believe, you and your family can learn from the past.

WeaponsMan - “Book” Link: the Rhodesian African Rifles

One of these historical events is the Rhodesian war and the African 'Independence' wars that gave us Zimbabwe, Liberia, South Africa, and other sh*t holes masquerading as functional countries.
