    The mother of a good friend and fellow Freeper is undergoing a very delicate operation today in Louisville's Norton hospital. She is in otherwise good health but this procedure can be tricky given her age. Her name is Betty. Please add her to your prayer list.

    SHTF Plan ^ | 4/10/12 | Jessica Hooley
    Is it a coincidence that all of my nightmares occur in big cities? While it may be a personality glitch, I find that considering the dangers you face in the event of an emergency while living in a city, my nightmares may be justified. If you live in a city – buckle up. As a prepper you will have to work extra hard to make your emergency plan viable. And while I make no judgments on city dwellers, I must say – MOVE! For your own safety – MOVE! Move, move, move, move, move. Okay. I think I got it...

    Rich Teeter, a drummer who played with punk pioneers the Dictators and later served a short stint with Twisted Sister, has died, Loudwire.com reports. He was 61. The sad news comes via Dictators Forever, Forever Dictators, a blog devoted to the legendary New York City band Teeter joined in 1976. The timekeeper played on two albums, Manifest Destiny (1977) and Bloodbrothers (1979), and occasionally took part in reunion shows. According to Loudwire, his last performance with the band likely came in 1991. As a member of Twister Sister, Teeter stuck around only for a few months, occupying the throne from...

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 10, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    LifeSiteNews is reporting that the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna, Christoph Schönborn , received a letter from the Vatican demanding action, after ten months of "discussion" between the Cardinal and the dissent group calling itself the "Austrian Priests' Initiative." The dissent group issued a manifesto last year demanding that the Church change her teachings on the ordination of women and married clergy and the reception of Communion by non-Catholics and divorced and remarried persons, and calling on their fellow clergy to disobey the Vatican. LifeSiteNews is reporting that, "the Cardinal himself has also publicly called for the Church to acquiesce to...

    Bubba didn't curse all through the back nine, and kick clubs. He didn't point at his birdie putts, and throw exaggerated left hooks when they fell into the cup. He didn't fold his arms across his chest and "mean mug" on the tee box. He didn't turn his back while his partners putted, and scowl as he walked the fairways. Had he done all of these things it would have been so much better. Maybe not. Maybe that's why it was so good. Some of his peers even stayed to celebrate with him. Bubba wasn't performing for the cameras. Bubba...

    My first and worst concern was what is gonna happen with my kids, I had two toddlers, and I did not have any clue what is gonna happen, or even what is gonna look like when hell broke lose. We did not want to believe it could happen. We heard the sound of big guns miles away and stories of violence, rape and murder but everything looked so peaceful. At the beginning, actually right before everything started during my meetings with my friends and colleagues at work we discussed the deteriorating situation, and pretty soon I found myself faced with...
  • How Much Water Is Enough?

    Modern Survival Blog ^ | 4/9/12 | Ken
    If you like food as much as I do, it’s hard to imagine that our body can actually go weeks without food. It wouldn’t be fun, of course, but it can be done. But without water, our bodies can get into serious trouble quickly – just a matter of days before dehydration can set in. So why is it that many people keep lots of extra food stored in their houses, but neglect to store any water? This subject came to mind recently when my cousin told me about having to endure a power outage with no drinkable water. Since...

  • Why Governor Huckabee Won’t Vote For or Support Mitt Romney for President.

    Caffeinated Thoughts ^ | 4/8/2012 | David Shedlock
    Former Governors, Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee, were not best buds during the 2008 campaign. No one doubts that. But since Governor Huckabee decided not to run for president this time around, it seems as if they have fixed whatever ailed their relationship. Governor Romney has appeared on Huckabee’s show, and Huckabee regularly defends Romney against unfair attacks and appears even-handed even when he disagrees with Romney. That is all well and good, and demonstrates the good will and kind demeanor of both governors. However, Romney’s position on the murder of unborn children has not changed since his official declaration...

    What if I told you that a white supremacist group held a conference call demanding a day of action to spill the blood of blacks and Latinos in America? Your reaction would be one of absolute horror. You would immediately decry the racist organization as having no place in our society and demand that the organization be shamed and shunned by the media — and rightly so. Yet, the opposite takes place on a regular basis – if not daily. Black supremacist groups like the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) consistently call for blood shed of whites and no one...

    Been watching the Trayvon threads closely, and following the news. It is mere curiosity on my part, watching how both sides set the narrative, or at least attempt to. Some guy kills another in Florida - how does that impact me? Yet it did. I am not going to even try to minimize the total horror George Zimmerman is going through right now. Hunted and vilified for protecting his life and his community and with a totally illegal bounty on his head. Innocent people forced to flee their homes thanks to one idiot who couldn't be bothered to check the...

    La Salette Journey ^ | April 7, 2012 | Paul Melanson
    In his book "Wrath of God: The Days of the Antichrist," Fr. Livio Fanzaga, known as the "radio priest" in Italy, explains that, "Atheism is the religion of the future. At its root, atheism is always a negation of God and every such negation presupposes His affirmation. Rather than saying 'God does not exist,' a more sophisticated form of atheism will assert that 'Man is God, humanity is God, God is immanent in human history and in the lives of individuals.' This is a form of religion which has assimilated the characteristics of a true religion. Adore man and satisfy...

    I keep hearing statements about how expensive it is to prep. Although it is not cheap it doesn’t have to be that expensive either. You do not need to stock 20 years worth of food to be properly prepared. As a matter of fact I would advise against it. Stockpiling a large food and water supply means you have to stay put and defend it. That may not be your best option in a lot of scenarios which means you would lose that investment. Do you think you really have enough ammo to defend a 20 year food supply for...
