    Came across this article, I couldn't help but laugh at this silliness. http://www.columbian.com/news/2017/mar/15/ultra-liberal-portland-moves-to-rein-in-protests/

    Not that I know what is the correct answer. I'm thinking we need a high ranking military officer that knows when to hold'm and when to fold'm in half. Now, with out being a veteran myself, it seems we need somebody calling the shots that on one hand does not want war but not afraid to drop the...

    Was checking EBay for some folding pocket knives when I came across several postings for multiple folding knives by a seller who states they were seized by TSA. I always thought ALL items seized by TSA were destroyed, or am I wrong? So....if these prohibited carry on items are being sold, what...

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/robertwood/2015/12/04/irs-power-over-passports-signed-into-law/ I could not believe this when I read it. Apparently this means that you can be restricted from traveling if you owe more than $50k in taxes. And here I thought we got away from debtors prison 300 years...

    Hey All, Just became a home owner on Vancouver Island, B.C. In November of last year. We are still young and needless to say we are experiencing everything that goes along with owning a home for the first time. Most recently property taxes ! Just got the papers in the mail today. So with the...

    Came across this article a few days ago, only now have time to post it. If already noted somewhere please feel free to move...thanks! http://www.naturalnews.com/043467_epa_woodstoves_freezing_weather.html
  8. Financial Forum
    I guess we have no financial crisis in this country. Nobody in the US needs 1.6 billion dollars, so time to start throwing money around like a drunken sailor again. i guess we owe Pakistan some reward money, since they were so nice as to provide safe harbor for Bin Laden? What the hell is...

    Killer Cano in Asia http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/killed-indonesia-volcano-refused-leave-19928714 on one hand, the victims should have listened to the government. on the other hand, the warning to evacuate was given months earlier. how many of us would evacuate our homes given...
  10. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I found this today by chance and thought it was pretty cool that there is a government sensible enough to proactively encourage their citizens to prep, rather than simply sitting back and waiting to clean up the damage. http://www.newsday.co.tt/news/0,178922.html It led me to wonder what the...
  11. Polls and Surveys
    I have been thinking about this subject for a very long time and I wanted to ask a question from all the forum members. This question is asked not to start a huge argument but to get people thinking. It is inevitable that the present Federal Government is going to implode sometime in the...
  12. Financial Forum
    The US could easily balance it's budget and pay down debt if the Government made one simple move immediately.. The question then becomes if they could why they do not? If you ever thought this Government is for the people and by the people and not for the Billionaire and by the Billionaire put...
  13. Financial Forum
    So today I checked my bank account to be sure that my direct deposited paycheck went through. It did, but my balance was lower than it should have been. After investigating this, I found that the amount i pay towards social security went up substantially. I have heard that this is because of the...

  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I thought this was really well done. I know a lot of people here don't like or trust FEMA, but anytime the government tells you not to depend on the government, I consider that a good thing. I think there are a lot of young passionate Emergency Managers and such that are entering the scene and...
  16. Firearms General Discussion
    We have all heard about how government agencies are stockpiling ammunition but why would the Social Security Administration need to? This article below states that it is for civil unrest. I am not claiming that is what it will be used for but curious as to why they would need ammo, especially...
  17. General Discussion
    Do you want your nations population to increase or decrease? Reason I ask is because politicians here want to double our nations population in the next 20-30 years. I'm not sure why I'd want to live in such a crowded country though.
  18. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Interesting article about why and how nations collapse. There is one sentence that I think rings true today, http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2012/06/18/10_reasons_countries_fall_apart Our education system is a tilted playing field. Kids that have talent for something besides being...

    Okay, Bloomberg has gone off the deep end. Now he wants to stop the sale of 16 oz sodas at street cars, restaurants and movie theaters. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/31/nyregion/bloomberg-plans-a-ban-on-large-sugared-drinks.html?_r=1
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    They are two unrelated questions but I thought i'd just put it in one thread. First off, how are we (the forum) to communicate after TEOTWAWKI, if a EMP happens? Secondly, (saw this in another forum) What if the government were to take away are right to own firearms? What would you do?
