  2. Knives, Swords & Axes
    Hello all, I've been fooling around with two things a lot lately, and those are my new work sharp KTS and my Gerber parang. Now, I know the Bear Grylls line of merchandise doesn't get much love, but even it has a few goodies. This parang has been working pretty well for me in yard work (i.e...

    I can't hold back anymore, I have got to say this: You can get a job! You can be off the welfare wagon, but you must WANT TO! I constantly read these blogs/forum messages/editorials about people who complain about minimum wages, not getting a job, too old, too young, can't lift this, can't do...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    The title says it: I'm not quite the OpSec police. I have yet to really contribute to this site, but I have made very big personal changes to what little preps I can afford. People older than me tell me I'm a young man with the soul of a retired man. That sums up my thought process. I am NOT...
  5. Political News and Discussion
    I have a theory: In the future, no one of us will look at work again the way we´ve done so far. In the past - working was the way to success, working was what every man aspired to do, to become the provider of a family such as we´ve known it, the woman who raised or children, and our children...
  6. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Every time I toss out a plastic bottle, I kid you not, I literally look at it and think to myself..."This could save my life." Then it hit me! I'm going to build a survival kit out of nothing but free items that can be found anywhere and that are regularly thrown away. When I worked...

    I'm new to this site but not new to prepping. I am a former paramedic and firefighter and my husband and I are both veterans. I have a farm and are self reliant so we are planning on bugging in. However, if is the worst case, we are bugging out to our ranch. So, I thought I was covered and then...

  9. Financial Forum
    I keep hearing about people who can’t find work. I know that it is more difficult to generate an income when the economy is sluggish but I have been blessed to find work pretty quickly when I needed it, so I thought I might offer some tips to anyone who is having a hard time making enough money...

    How many of us in North America or Europe would take the jobs South Koreans are now being forced to take in this bad economy? http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/07/world/asia/07pride.html?ref=global After 9-11 I worked for over a year sorting international packages for UPS.

  13. General Discussion
    The following article has some interesting stats on the actual - not government reported - unemployment in the USA. Many of us here have known instinctively for months that the true unemployment numbers, reflecting people who have given up trying to find work, the underemployed, part-timers...
  14. Controversial News and Alternative Politics
    So, I work for a school that is state run. We got a memo this week stating that as per Gov. Richardson, we're now going to start "conserving" and that spending cuts were being made. Conserving means that we have to not only turn off all of our lights/comps etc. when we go home, but every time...
