It’s not my fault the voters voted in two of them in a row. While I greatly dislike Obama, I have to say he was more mentally stable than the current occupant in the white house. I can’t say at this point either of them are much different in decision making. Trump hasn’t been in office long enough to give him a fair shake down.

As for the drills………I know they take planning & budgets & lots of coordination. I’ve taken part in them. That there are disaster drills doesn’t heighten my alertness, they happen all the time. That it is for something rather specific, nuclear attack, is what got my attention. They’re usually just generic disaster type themes. This country has not worried about a nuclear threat in many decades. Now suddenly we’re having nuclear disaster drills. Yup. That’s going to cause me to stop & consider why. And the theme could’ve have been made more specific within a short time frame as it still would involve the same people & much of the same equipment just some detail alterations & a more specific focus.

Obammy more mentally stable than Prez Trump? … where exactly have you been the last 8 years? …. he has more mental & emotional issues than any modern president – including Nixon and Johnson – and that taking Kennedy’s drug issue into account …

there’s all kinds of “tell all” books coming out – I’d be reserving anything positive about Obammy until you see behind the Wizard’s curtain …

April 25, 2017 Gunns 0

I looked at IBC totes and the EE160 gallon tank. I think I would still spring for totes for water catchment for the garden and such. But for potable water I may still spring for a manufactured tank designed specifically for that reason.

Totes around here are hard to find, especially those that did not have harmful chemicals in them.

That said, a sizable number of people would die and many more suffer but it wouldn’t mean the end of all of NYC and the “could cause chaos throughout the world possibly setting humanity back thousands of years” conclusion is frankly bull.

I’m far more concerned about an EMP and the long term impacts of recovering from that. But of course, I don’t live any where near NYC so I do have a rather cynical perspective on that.

It would depend on the size of the bomb. The bomb used as an example in the video is a B-83, the largest bomb that the USA currently has and its 1.2 megatons. At the height of the cold war the USSR had the Tsar bomb which is 100 megatons, thats 83.33 times the power of the B-83 so it would have a much greater blast radius and cause much more destruction over a much larger area.

As for causing chaos throughout the world, that wouldn’t be from the bomb but from the USA retaliating and the possibility of a full scale nuclear war accumulating.

Russia didn’t have 100 megaton bombs. They accidentally set one off in 1961. They had no idea what they were doing.

There largest deliverable weapon was 5 megatons. And those are very very old.

This is a slow burn. It will take a lot for those in the middle and on the right to wake up and fight back. Its starting though.

No land invasion would succeed in North America. Biggest reason is there are only 3 nations on North America. Not like Europe/Russia/Middle East all tied together by land.

I have always said voting should be a tested first. A person needs to pass a test about current events, political events and history before voting. Our founding fathers left it to the states to decide who voted, but it was not everyone at first.

Nope.

Anything that has to do with purchasing power online won’t exist in a SHTF scenario and most likely never will recover. The internet and all its data will never be the same if we go into a world wide recession or depression.

Frankly I like Reid at Valor Ridge more anyway because he is less arrogant AND has a history teaching background I have found informative. I’m hoping she comes to the DFW area instead of Houston. I have other sources for firearms training and medical skills locally that are easier to afford. But..If I had the $$$ I would take classes from both of them…preferably in Tenn.

I would take her class too.

Louisiana Discussion, News and Weather • Re: Mayo Clinic to give preference to privately insured

March 20, 2017 Gunns 0

Many years ago I had this great Doctor. Thorough and precise and straight to the point. My wife didn’t care for him, he could be rough sometimes but he did say you can’t always be a gentle doctor and find the problem. He was very good. One day he pointed out to the Doctors only parking lot and asked what I saw.

I said I see a lot of BMW’s, Mercedes and a beat up Toyota. He said his was the Toyota and he couldn’t be my doctor any more. He lost his job. Seems the insurance companies were giving bonuses to doctors to NOT use ct scans and mri’s. He said you could make hundreds of thousands on bonuses. His problem was he never got bonuses. He said CT Scans at certain ages could save lives. I remember him telling me before that he spotted more tumors and problems from them way before they were problems.

Well he ended up in Rochester MN where Mayo is. He had a major run in with them. IBM ended up constructing his very own clinic and assigning all the IBM employees to his clinic. He specializes in preventing problems and IBM’s incidents to health insurance have dropped every year since he started. The man is a genius and really believes in helping.

Haven’t found anyone that cares as much since.

In communal bathrooms this can be a major problem as this fecal matter will migrate into the brains of the bathroom users especially when brushing their teeth like in a dorm room. This matter will migrate into the brain and multiply. This may explain why snowflakes have Sxxx for brains.

We’re not real sure about this but if I can get a Grant for $10,000,000. I promise to research this problem deeply.

You can lead a horse to water and you know the rest of that story! I no longer discuss the issue outside BASIC storm preparation, something anyone in this area should be doing.

My dad use to say the same thing to me, but he added this, “But you can beat that horse and wish he would have drank the water.”

Dad was a hard corps WW-2 Marine veteran and didn’t pull any punches on any man, woman or child.

Well now, that pretty much explains you.
