Youve spent too much time in town...

I, like many in flyover country, have a sweet well, supplies, and prodigious wildcrafting resources. You can hole up here....though its quite a walk from there.

Im guessing he meant fractions, as in slaves, or more correctly, less than self-sovereign.

You've failed to read my FR page. I don't live "in town."

I, like many in flyover country, have a sweet well, supplies, and prodigious wildcrafting resources. You can hole up here....though its quite a walk from there.

"Holing up" is a sure-fire way to lose. Just ask the Indians. They knew a ton more about survival living mobile on the land than you do.

Seeing as the experience upon which I'm drawing is at least 3,500 years old and comprised an entire book I wrote on the topic, perhaps you'd best do just a touch more homework before posting.

Borax is a miracle sustance, it is also the most effective roach poison I know. I would be very careful about doing any such thing.

Youve written a book on how to be foolish? Applause.

If you werent a clueless city dweller you would know that those of us outside of town have the things you worry about.

Good luck wandering the wilderness alone. Youll be the first to go. It will sincerely sadden me.

This is my last post to you moron.

Second time: I'm not a city dweller. You're wrong, again. I live in a rural area. I have my own well too. So what?

Good luck wandering the wilderness alone.

"Wilderness" is an modern urban myth pursuant to the 18th Century adoption of Bacon's pathetic reading of Lucretius, but surely you know that. For the last 10,000 years, "wilderness" worldwide, has had people in it until very recently. We were warned, in the Bible, to cherish and maintain our relationship with nomadic peoples (which is what the book is about). Modern culture removed them to the very peril to which you refer, leaving cities ripe for siege warfare. There will be no escape. Duh. You'll just be part of the "mopping up" operation, if they don't cram you into town first.

That you have a place far from town doesn't mean you have what it takes TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY, without which you are eventually dead meat, and a failure to generations to come. Get a clue.

Next month we’re going to put the Chinese and Indian armies on retainer to defend our right to keep and bear arms. Your move, 0bambi.

Ah yes. I lost a similar weapon just recently in an equally tragic boating accident. It was called “The Judge”. Lovely gun. Think I’ll buy some more ammo for it....

just in case I find it some day. Ya just never know. It could happen.

“How do 410 shotgun shells compare with .45 bullets? (cost wise) the one gun ‘my friend’ bought is made to shoot both.) [I mean if he hadn’t lost them in the tragic boating accident]”

"This is my last post to you moron."

Thank God, I get tired of dealing with intentionally dense people.

"I'm not a city dweller."

So you moved out of town and carried all your foolish pre-conceptions with you. Got it. Doesnt speak to the fact that due to many reasons other than fear of what is come from the feds, many of us are ready for that also.

""Wilderness" is an modern urban myth ..."

And where does a small band of genius nomads get the power TO DEFEAT THE ENEMY? Nowhere.

...and this isnt an attack on you, its just a problem I have with recent Christian teachings....I dont understand where the idea that God is going to just step in an make it all right comes from. It doesnt matter how much you truly believe. God is not going to smite anyone directly for you, God is not going to send anything to you. You have to get off your ass and make it happen, then there might be some form of support on the way. Anything else is just singing hymns on your way to the welfare office.

“There are 2.29 active members in the Chinese Army.

Typo? Ya think?

According to the Wikipedia, the PLA numbers 2,285,000. And the Indian Army is 1,325,000 strong. Close enough for this thread.

Exactly. The Communists were never going to win by marching in with red armbands under Hammer and Sickle flags. They realized it would be much easier to win from within under the ruse of Hope and Change.

Do a google search...here is just one of the many things you will find...

The Borax Conspiracy - How the Arthritis Cure has been Stopped – by Walter Last
http://www.health-science-spirit.com/borax.htm

And btw, diatomaceous earth kill insects. Food grade DE is safe and effective for live stock, pets and humans. Among other things, it kills intestinal parasites, something we all have if we don’t deal with them.

The point of the comment about DE is that many things kill insects, but are safe for humans. Table salt, is poisonous, if you consume enough. Sodium tetraborate decahydrate is safer than table salt, sodium chloride.

Breathing pure oxygen can be deadly...we need some carbon dioxide to trigger the breathing reflex. Water can be deadly...even drinking too much.

And while we are on the subject of ‘deadly’, many, many pharmaceutical drugs are deadly, even at prescribed doses...and these have FDA approval. Think about it...I would be very careful about taking ANY prescription medicine.

Boric acid has many uses too, including being used as an eye wash. For internal use, Borax has a much lower toxicity than Boric Acid.

I have indeed!

We haven’t bought .410 slugs. Logic is, weapon will shoot a .45 Colt slug (cheaper than .410 slugs) or the 4 (000 buck) .38-sized slugs. Why buy .410 slugs?

What do you think?

I am opening up my own business locally of a specialized gunsmith service center specifically aimed at the modern defensive style weapons such as any AR, AK, SKS M1A, Saiga or other shotguns.

Services will be full action ultrasonic tank cleaning, lubrication specifically designed per weapon requirements and for Alaska extremes. Custom ceracoke, camo, aftermarket accessories from lasers to thermal imaging.

I don’t plan on being another Red Jacket unless the demand is high, mostly my services are periodic intensive cleaning, lead and copper removal and lubrication, because many new buyers are unaware of what their recently purchased black rifles require, some need dry lube, some grease and such.

And I am trying to create a logo of the Sagittarius archer aiming an M14 for a company logo.

Just a cautionary note regarding Carrie_Okie, something to help you avoid cognitive dissonance.

That FReeper really is more ‘woods wise’, both practically and on a theoretical & historic level, than you probably can realize. FR is an Internet site where premise revision is the main course. Carrie is one of the best known ‘cooks’ on this site.

The real advantage of FR is that it gives thread readers/participants access to cutting edge ideas and analysis. When an obviously informed /experienced person presents an idea, I try to take advantage of the offer and consider whether that idea may be of use to me.

YMMV.

As to Carrie’s preconceived ideas, both he and I have revised our original ideas so often that we have, so to speak, taken to attaching ideas into our brains with Velcro - to make moving or replacing them easier.

;-)

I recommend visualizing ideas as being similar to ice cream, canned food or helicopter blades - all have time limited usefulness and need regular inspection and/or replacement.

FR - where ideas are always on the table.

Happy revising!

PS Wilderness is an enviro created myth used to socialize America.

How can I say that? Because I was a member of the Florida Sierra Club’s Florida Executive Committee, A.K.A FLEXCOM. I was once a real, live, walking, talking FLEXCOMMIE.

Then I realized they were really just socialists masquerading as environmentalists and left.
