 Another Blow Against Freedom?

One of Obama’s latest moves is to try to ban some of the most popular ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.  Previously, the Obama administration attempted unsuccessfully to ban the AR-15.  That didn’t work, so now Obama is going after the ammunition.  This is yet another example of the war on preppers that is going on all over the nation.  Whether you are a gun owner or not, this assault on our constitutional rights should disturb you greatly.  Barack Obama has promised to try to squeeze as much “change” as possible out of his last two years, and in the process he is “fundamentally transforming” America.  But what will our country look like when he is done?

At the top of the Drudge Report today, there was a story from the Washington Examiner detailing this ammo ban…

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

And here is more on this ammo ban from the NRA

As NRA has been reporting since the night the news broke, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) is moving to infringe upon the rights of law-abiding gun owners with a drastic reinterpretation of a nearly 30-year-old law regulating so-called “armor piercing” ammunition. So draconian is BATFE’s new “Framework” that it would prohibit the manufacturing, importation, and sale of M855 ball ammunition, one of the most popular cartridges for the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15. Not coincidentally, the AR-15 is among the firearms the Obama Administration has unsuccessfully sought to outlaw. If they can’t ban the pie, so the thinking apparently goes, they might at least get the apples.

In an effort to thwart BATFE’s attempted action, NRA has worked with U.S. Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to draft a letter to BATFE expressing the lawmakers’ opposition to the proposed Framework.

A lot of Americans are getting fed up.

In fact, according to one recent survey only 47 percent of Americans still believe that Obama loves this country…frankly, our incompetent-in-chief is perhaps the worst president our nation has ever had and along with many others, we’re still scratching our heads as to how this flatworm managed to go from being an unknown senator to president.  Who is behind the scenes pulling the strings?

Could this president be the one that actually lights the match for another US revolution?

Video: Is Your Health
a Threat to Your Financial Security?

The leading cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. isn't credit card debt, job loss or unpaid mortgages. It's medical debt, a financial drain that pushed an estimated 1.7 million people into bankruptcy last year.



Breakthrough home-based food production system featuring 3D-printable components posted online for free

Read about a revolutionary system based on the work of Professor Kratky that grows highly-nutritious, mineral-rich foods using about 1/20 the water of conventional agriculture and about half the space of soil gardening.

The best part is that it uses no electricity and you can download and print the key components on any 3D printer.


Gardening and Food Prices
There is evidence that food prices will only continue to rise. Many may be turning to gardening to grow edibles that don't come with the same price tag as the grocery store. I am inexperienced with this myself, but I continue to experiment and learn. What advice do experienced gardeners have for those just starting out with a garden? What is the best way to start frugally? Continue to keep it cost effective and not become overwhelmed by the work it can take.


Overly Dry Winter Air

Every winter, the air in our house begins to feel like a desert. I hate the way it dries out my skin. We just found an unusual solution. It's an aquarium! For Christmas, we got the kids a ten-gallon aquarium. We were surprised to find that we had to add a little water every few days. Then we realized that it was evaporating and adding to the moisture in the air!

Emergency Warmth

Winter storms remind us that most of us depend on city utilities for our heat, and sometimes a storm can interrupt that service. That's why we bought some of those Mylar space blankets to keep in our house and car. They maintain body heat and can keep us warm in an emergency.

They're light weight, cost only a few dollars, don't take up much storage room, and do a wonderful job of keeping us warm when a car breaks down or a heater doesn't work


Finally, here are a few more resources you might find useful!
