Home Made Apple Jack

Applejack is a drink once popular in the colonial times. It is mentioned throughout
historical literature in connection with American heroes such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. The drink is a strong
alcoholic beverage derived from fermented apple juice or cider. The water is driven out of the cider leaving a highly alcoholic beverage behind.

The good thing about Applejack is that you can make it with normal household
equipment. No stills, open flames, or specialized brewing equipment is necessary

Things You'll Need
A fermentation vessel (i.e. a plastic bucket w/lid , glass carboy, plastic water bottles or whatever)
A mesh kitchen colander
A FERMENTATION LOCK (A device that allows air to escape when fermenting, but does not allow bacteria to enter. Can be purchased at a homebrew supply shop for about $1.)
A funnel
A couple empty milk jugs or similar containers
A freezer
1 gallon water
1 gallon apple juice
4 pounds of brown sugar
1-2 packs of wine or champagne yeast

Boil 1 gallon of water. Turn off heat and dissolve the brown sugar in the water. Allow the sugar and water mixture to cool to about 80 degrees
Combine apple juice and sugar water mixture in a clean fermentation vessel of your choice. Add yeast and attach fermentation lock.

Wait for a few weeks or until fermentation is complete. If using a fermentation lock, watch for the bubbling to slow down to 1 bubble per minute or so.
Put the fermented cider into a container or containers of your choice.
Place the cider in the freezer and leave it alone for a few days.
Once the cider turns to slush, using the mesh colander, start draining the apple beverage from the ice. The white slush should be removed.
Using the funnel/ colander combination carefully collect the runnings into a milk jug or similar vessel.
Repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 until it no longer freezes.

Some cider or apple juice contains chemical preservatives. Read the label and do not use this type of juice.

Lease Solar Power
Despite government energy credits, solar is still rather expensive.  Lease terms vary widely so it pays to investigate before committing and bear in mind, you don’t want to shell out $25,000 and up to buy or install equipment.  Most leases last at least 15 years and have substantial penalties for early termination.  Make sure the firm pays for the maintenance and repair expenses.  Here are a few companies worth looking at:

The Nanny State Updates…

The Feds Are Road Testing a National Internal Passport System

The Transportation Security Administration's (TSA) now has a covert and systematic expansion into covering "all forms of ground transportation... complete with traveler checkpoints and individualized tracking of cars, trains, telephones, and computers."
This means the imposition of airport-style "security" screenings upon travelers opting for various forms of ground transportation. What future generations of Americans will be conditioned to expect as "normal" should be seen by more of us for the historic milestone that it really is: The birth of a Soviet-style internal passport system where individuals could someday be blocked from travelling if they don't have official permission.

Forbes reported in March 2011 that documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests show the Department of Homeland Security, under whose jurisdiction the TSA falls, has been testing pilot programs to "deploy mobile scanning units that can be set up at public events and in train stations along with mobile x-ray vans capable of scanning pedestrians on city streets."

The Parting Thought-Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha ya  gonna do when they come for you?
The militarization of US police forces is ongoing and escalating. Many cities and towns now own tanks, armed personnel carriers, even attack helicopters, and almost all are outfitted with military weapons not available to the general public.

And, they are not just arming cops and weekend warriors for domestic purposes. Active duty Marines are now being trained for law enforcement operations all over the world (of which the US remains a part) specifically to deal with civil uprisings, and the US government knows that civil uprisings are coming to a town near you just as soon as the fantasy of a healing economy is shattered, the US dollar fails, and unemployment goes to 30%+ in real numbers.

So what will you do when they come for you after declaring all citizens must give up their weapons for ‘the public good.” There’s no way you can fight against this with a hunting rifle.

According to Public Intelligence:
"...for the last two years, the President's Budget Submissions for the Department of Defense have included purchases of a significant amount of combat equipment, including armored vehicles, helicopters and even artillery, under an obscure section of the FY2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the purposes of "homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities." Items purchased under the section include combat vehicles, tanks, helicopters, artillery, mortar systems, missiles, small arms and communications equipment. Justifications for the budget items indicate that many of the purchases are part of routine resupply and maintenance, yet in each case the procurement is cited as being "necessary for use by the active and reserve components of the Armed Forces for homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities" under section 1815 of the FY 2008 NDAA." (Emphasis supplied.)
