Volume One Number Twenty-Six



Dans les Bl├ęs (ca 1875)
painting by
Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot was born in January, 1841. Early on, she was a radical taking up painting, with her family's misgivings. As a student, she and her sister studied painting together.

From 1864 until 1873, Ms. Morisot exhibited some of her art works with the annual Paris Salon.

She became a radical among radicals, in 1874, by painting "domestic life and portraits in which she could use family and personal friends as models."

Berthe Morisot passed away in March, 1895.


Action
Most of the things you need to survive are in your home; you just need to add more of some things, like water and food.

But, ... You also need to get some things done, such as getting physically fit, learn immediate action drills for your handgun and rifle, and many others. You also need to teach you and your family first aid.

Needless to say, you don't have to do some of these things yourself. You can include your partner and your children by having them teach a class on say first-aid, cooking on a propane grill, or other skill.

This will empower your children.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the liberals talk about 'empowerment,' but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about ...

* In the past, teenagers were raising families by the time they were 15 or 16 years old.

* Young men and young women were lying about their age to serve their countries at war.

* Teenagers were considered productive members of the family, helping out around the home, farm, and at the family business.

Because, ... During an event, your children will be part of the 'team.'


Things You May Want to Think About

You Need a Gun
But, ... You already knew that, so WeaponsMan provides a list of other critical gear you need for your firearm. He also provides inexpensive suggestions for learning how to use your firearm.


Loss of Faith
If you can't trust someone, you don't do business with them.

But, ... What happens "If" you loss faith in your government?


Losers, The Flag, and Handouts
First, ... Remember, the Confederate States of America lost the war, so waving the 'Stars and Bars' is similar to bragging that your side came in ... last.

Second, ... This Flag represented a country that supported slavery for about 100 years. Some of its greatest leaders were slave holders. According to some people, this country is still a 'slave' nation, so we need to pull this flag down.

Lastly, ... It seems to me, every time we start talking about the obstacles facing 'black' citizens; we blame guns, the justice system (laws, police, and courts), and racism. Oh, ... We need more money, too.


Overheard

"According to the most recent data available, there has been little change in the overall global situation regarding the production, use and health consequences of illicit drugs."


"We may well get the despot this time around, too, not to mention the chaos and war, ..."


"Taxpayer-funded travel is “a privilege and not a right.”" and "flush toilets, washers and dryers, hot water, air conditioning, vanity mirrors, refrigerators, and ... "
