Survival Of The Fittest And The Smartest

Given that people are hugely influenced by what they see on television, is it any wonder that fending for yourself out in the wild is one of the biggest challenges that people like to take on these days? If it wasn’t that, it would be taking on endless decoration or cooking challenges so heading to the great outdoors and pitting your wits against nature is something that many people are being inspired to do.

This is a great thing because it would be fair to say that many people have become too soft in recent years. The advances of modern technology mean that life has become quite easy at home for a lot of folk. There is no need or even desire to return to the caveman days on a permanent basis but there can something quite inspiring about getting in touch with nature. Taking a break from TV, mobile phones, laptops, tablets and constant work emails can be a little piece of bliss for many people in the modern era.

Be sensible with what you take

However, just because you aren’t going to rely on modern equipment like smartphones, Sat-Navs or modern cookers doesn’t mean that you have to go into the wild completely unprepared. This would be a recipe for disaster and would create a situation where you would be completely unprepared for what could happen. You don’t need to rely on cutting edge technology but being properly prepared will help you to get in touch with nature and have fun while staying safe.

Kitting yourself out in gear from the Outdoor Clothing Shops - Warwickshire Clothing range is the best way to be properly equipped for any time spent in the rough. Whether you are looking to go camping with the family for a few days or you intend on being a little bit more adventurous, being prepared for all weather conditions is the smart option.

It would be good to say in Britain that we know what the weather is going to be like but this is not a claim that anyone can make with any conviction. In the space of a couple of hours you can find yourself exposed to all four seasons and if you don’t have the clothing range that is equipped to deal with it, you will become rather miserable in no time at all.

That is the best case scenario because if you are exposed to the wind, rain, snow or even low temperatures for far too long, you may find that your health is at risk. The brave explorers and foragers on TV shows are never too far away from a film crew and can receive assistance at short notice. This is not something that is always available in real life so it makes sense to be properly prepared and equipped for whatever life in the wild may throw at you.

Getting in touch with the wilder side of life and challenging yourself to live off of the land and nature for a while is a great way to spend your spare time. It is however important to ensure you are properly prepared for all eventualities.

The Parting Thought:  Defending the Constitution against gov’t abuse


I, (NAME), do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Notice what they vow to defend first and foremost. TheConstitution. The good men and women who serve our country are prepared to die for it. Yet, how many people really understand what it is they're defending?

Now, more than ever before, we need to understand what the Constitution says.

Why now?

  • Because the Constitution guarantees that citizens will not be subject to illegal search and seizure ... as they were in Boston last month. Law-abiding citizens were ordered out of their homes, hands on their heads, while their homes, and in some cases their persons, were searched without a warrant because of a "terrorist threat." If you were one of those people, your rights were violated.

And in another kind of illegal search and seizure just last week, it was revealed that the IRS illegally stole, without warrant or subpoena, 60 million private medical records from Americans. If you were one of the millions affected, your rights were violated.

  • Because the Constitution guarantees that citizens have the right to bear arms. You shouldn't have to have a license or a permit to exercise a constitutional right ... and states like New York, Colorado, and many others require just that. To add insult to injury, some states, like Connecticut, have confiscated guns (without due process) from law-abiding veterans based on flimsy excuses that they "might" have psychiatric problems.
  • Because the Constitution guarantees that people have freedom of expression and the government may not restrain, punish, or penalize them for it. Last week, it came to light that the IRS made unreasonable demands of numerous non-profit organizations, having a quelling effect on their activities and communications.
  • Because the Constitution guarantees that people may exercise their religion freely. Despite this guarantee, Washington state officials ignore it to harass a florist who will not provide flowers for a gay wedding because it goes against his religious beliefs. Worse, religious organizations are forced to provide health insurance to employees that offer practices that go against their conscience, such as contraception or abortion.

Five times in as many weeks, the government has stomped on constitutionally protected rights. Even if you were not directly affected, make no mistake about it ... you could be next. It's becoming ever more apparent that power-hungry government officials don't care about our constitutional rights.

Death of the Promised Land: Origins of the 2nd American Revolution

7 Secrets for Success in Life


Are there sure-fire secrets to leading a successful life?  I believe there are a few and they’re not truly secret.


1.      Have a passion in life.  It could be your family, your job, or  your hobby.  Zeal for such activities in life will keep you young and invigorated.

2.      Take care of your health.  Nothing diminishes optimism like poor health.  Remember and keep the old adage of “all things in moderation.”  A diet poor in nutrients and a lifestyle without exercise is the bane of modern society…too much fast food, pre-packaged foods and a couch potato lifestyle hampers your body and your mind.

3.      Feed your brain daily.  Most of television is crap.  Reading, writing, and verbal discourse act as vitamins for your mind.

4.      Problems in life.  Everyone faces challenges and often they seem insurmountable.  Keep in mind most problems have multiple solutions.  I try to always have a Plan B (in many cases, a Plan C or D is required as well).  Indeed, something I’ve been working on for months just fizzled and that had been my Plan B.  Now, it’s back to the drawing board but I know persistence will eventually create the reward I desire.

5.      Live within your means.  Modern living, via banks and Madison Avenue, has trapped us into the use of easy credit over the years.  When I was a volunteer counselor, the top three factors of marital discord featured money problems as the number one area of contention.  This is especially important today.

6.      Spend 20 minutes a day just for yourself.  Find some quiet time each day to meditate, read, or simple to spend alone.  There is a lot of noise in the world today, which often drowns out the important things in life…self reflection is important. 

7.      Give of yourself.  I’ve always liked Zig Ziglar’s line about help enough other people get what they want and you’ll get what you want.


Finally, and here’s a bonus…take time to try new things, have an adventure, enjoy life even it is something as simple as playing music you enjoy at top volume or watching an old movie.  It will perk you up!  Be thankful for what you have…Order ab Chao!


According to a recent Time poll, 61% of Americans now fear government anti-terrorist policies and how they restrict our civil liberties more than terrorists…


PM’s Roundup of Useful Resources…


Being frugal doesn't have to involve punishing yourself. There are easy ways to stretch your dollars when you're making planned purchases.


As survivalists and preppers we are always faced with trying to predict what these uncertain times we are living in will bring. Once we have developed an idea about an area of interest we shift gears and begin making plans to accommodate for that particular SHTF scenario if/when it ever happens. We often read articles that describe various items we should include in our bug out bags or GOOD gear. Some of us elect to purchase prefabricated survival kits rather than buy the items separately and assemble the gear ourselves. All of us should have some form of emergency medical first aid kit already assembled and stored within our battle bags. The gunshot survival kit is a list of items and utensils that will come in handy for the specific purpose of surviving a gunshot wound. The contents listed here are standard inclusions in EMT and Military Field Medic gear. Read the rest at:




The advantages of using wood stoves as survivalist cooking components. While it is not absolutely necessary to use wood stoves for survivalist scenarios, there are some additional benefits to having them as part of the battle plan for long term survival in a secluded safe haven situation.

"If you're a veteran and fought -- and some died for this flag, our country, our freedom -- you don't want to see it desecrated and destroyed by traitorous politicians who are destroying freedom with drones, the unPatriot Act and other anti-American laws.”


The Nanny State-We love our government Upholding high standards for police

Most of the time, police protect us, keep us safe, and enforce law and order. However, sometimes they break the law—whether it's a hungry cop 
pulling a gun on a McDonald's customer, trigger-happy officers shooting people's pets, or Texas police pulling over women to perform roadside cavity searches.

In light of such abuse, Police Misconduct seeks to hold law enforcement accountable for their actions. With cutting daily recaps, biting commentary, and thoughtful policy analysis, Police Misconduct is at the lead when it comes to demanding honest and ethical police work.

The Parting Thought:  When Democracy Stopped Working


Death of the Promised Land:  Origins of the 2nd American Revolution


   It began with the passage of the Patriot Act or as most came to view it, the UNPATRIOT ACT.

In reality, however, it started when the special interests, led by former Congressmen, hijacked the federal budget under the guide of ‘protecting the people,’ with TSA airport scanners, drone technology, the use of NSA spy satellites against their own people, the loss of privacy, federal monitoring of all financial transactions, travel restrictions and other acts which subverted the Bill of Rights.


 The tipping point, most historians agree, was the revelation of the Obama administration allowing the IRS to hinder and monitor conservative groups.  That was followed by revelations of how journalists were being spied upon by the Justice Department and the Benghazi cover-up.


When news stories surfaced about how Congress bankrupted the nation and had stolen the gold reserves supposedly held at Fort Knox, the new currency and gold confiscation programs initiated by the Fed led to the Great Crash of Wall Street in 2014. China and other creditors began demanding repayment of their loans in gold.  Panic among citizens led to the declaration of martial law, gun confiscation and the occupation of major cities by the Federal Army.


By 2015 the decline of citizen centered politics was apparent to every citizen and mass riots broke out.  The Federal Army quickly rounded up ‘dissidents’ and placed them into internment camps which has already been secretly set up in various locations throughout the country. 


A sticking point for the feds emerged when several divisions of the Army and law enforcement balked at rounding up citizens and formed their own underground resistance groups.


For now, this is an imaginary tale…


Your government has failed you…What have you done to better the world?

For those of us who want a different angle of resistance and challenge to the “system,” we might call this the Flying Circus strategy. Rather than explaining things through rational analysis, we raise the stakes using the bureaucracy’s own language and way of thinking. This goes hand in hand with the technique of anamorphosis, civil disobedience, and/or apathy.


A better world is possible…Or you can remain asleep…

Don't wait for the next revolution - Start one of your own now!
