filthy lucre

Money, in the sense of being a product or source of greed. The phrase is Biblical in origin, and the word “lucre” comes from the Latin word lucrum, meaning “profit.” In an amazing twist the normal prepper did not predict, paper currencies have become less desirable than electronic transactions. Hoo-Duh-Thunk??? We were always encouraging each other to keep some ready cash in the cookie jar for the initial phases of TEOTWAWKI where people still trusted their central bank paper, but couldn’t make their regular electronic money transfers function. In today’s Topsy-Turvy world, EVERYBODY KNOWS that THE VIRUS can live on paper currencies for over a week, making it a great vector for spreading DARPA FLU. Your cookie jar has just […]

virus not Made In China nor is it natural

With inferences, deduction and thought I began calling it the the DARPA Virus. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military. I sat up and began paying closer attention when one source described the development of the COVID-19 virus as a creation of a Wisconsin Level-4 lab released to an Winnipeg Level-4 lab, then to the Wohan Level-4 lab. Whoa! When the Chinese premier bristles that it was not created in China, he is flirting with the truth. When Trump hammers on the Made-In-China theme, he is working to deflect USofA military responsibility. When rulers all over Earth overreact […]

resignations: there are no coincidences

Hordes of the ruling elite are running for cover. This is completely unprecedented in our lifetimes prior to the shocking derailment of Hitlary’s coronation. I was watching this information in a database of resignations, sealed indictments, unsealed indictments, arrests, and a couple other categories. That site disappeared, as far as I can tell. In searching for it recently I ran across a wealth of resignation information that I partially share here. The arrests might be more interesting to us, but I don’t have that. Still, resigning positions among the elites is a major step these folks do not take without serious external motivators. I keep watching the show and toasting the victories as they become apparent. In the Sturm und […]

on the bright side

An interesting effect of the social distancing fad is the reaction in what they like to call “The criminal justice system”. Prison and jail populations are being reduced coast to coast by various means. Courts are on holiday. Enforcers are advised to skip interacting with the public over burned out taillights and silly harassments they used to delight in. Is this the Libertarian dream … the end of victimless crimes? Victimless Crime Constitutes 86% of the Federal Prison Population Did cannabis prohibition just end? Is Constitutional Carry now the law of the land? Locally, Ravalli County has nearly eliminated courts, arrests and incarceration. Benjamin Franklin stated it as, “it is better [one hundred] guilty Persons should escape than that […]

your first home defense firearm

I published the information below a year ago, but am refreshing it now as many people wake up to the need for providing their own self-defense, family-defense and home-defense. There are many serious, fatal accidents looming when untrained, inexperienced people purchase firearms just cuz they suddenly recognize the utility and are able to purchase a gun. Single-shot guns are the simplest of all. The user places a round in the chamber when they are ready to shoot something, aim and shoot. The utility is limited and not a great choice for defense. Revolvers are also straightforward in that novices can readily see whether they are loaded or not, reducing some of the possibilities for negligent discharges, damage and death. […]

9 Superfoods with powerful anti-viral properties

Due to increased global travel, viral outbreaks often pose a serious threat to public health. Some examples include the emergence of dengue, measles and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). Currently, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is rapidly spreading in different countries. COVID-19 is caused by a new strain of coronavirus. Although the disease has a low fatality rate compared to the flu or tuberculosis, healthcare professionals note that a healthy immune system is the body’s first line of defense. Luckily, there are natural ways to fortify the immune system. For […]

March 19th is the Spring Equinox

Let’s celebrate … let’s make today somehow memorable. Your wall calendars and media might call today “first day of spring” or some other trivializing phrase, as if it is a meaningless Hallmark holiday. Do not confuse it with other fabricated events on your pre-printed calendar. Mankind has paid attention to solstices and equinoxes throughout our history. The days have been getting longer since the winter solstice, and will continue growing until the summer solstice June 21st. Wednesday is exactly half-way in between. It defines the shift from snow-cold-snow-cold to robins, flowers, butterflies and shedding jackets during the day. Pessimists say The Bitterroot has three seasons: snow, flood and smoke. I suppose we had better broadcast it like that lest we […]

SOLD OUT

A week ago the media told its slaves to buy toilet paper. They obliged in droves, soaking up supplies at an incredible pace. They quickly moved on to paper diapers, feminine hygiene products and everything disposable made of paper. The rolling panic attack transitioned to bottled water, then transitioned to frozen food and fresh produce. Several weeks ahead of the next rush I see old codgers topping off their gasoline and diesel fuel supplies. They lived through numerous blizzards and other disasters teaching them what to have plenty of in their pantries and what supplies to maximize as the next one approaches. Now, in a sign of brightening awareness, Seattle has few handguns left to buy and their prices have […]

A most convenient virus

It appears the Corona beer producers and distributors are no longer suffering from having their namesake in the headlines. COVID-19 is becoming the approved label for this world-disrupting virus and response thereto. By any name, the world is staggering from the effects. Each of us know people whose lives are being disrupted in major ways. Picking up bits and pieces from several sources within the USofA and China has led me to believe DARPA engineered a weaponized super-virus which they allowed China to “steal”, who in turn “lost control” of it, whereupon it quickly spread world-wide. Virologists are reporting numerous unnatural aspects of COVID-19, including its unprecedented ability to live outside a host for nearly a month. Other extraordinary […]

California humor

Okay, this won’t be understood by Californians, but you gotta admit they are fun to watch … as long as you don’t get emotionally attached or try to explain things to them. The San Francisco politicians have rolled out their response to being one of the Coronavirus centers of the western world. The genius of our university system’s finest can be admired for all to see: Beginning midnight on Tuesday, residents may only leave their homes to shop for food/supplies, to access health care or to provide aide to family and friends in need. Resident may go outside for exercise but must stay 6 feet away from people they don’t live with. The homeless are exempt from the order. […]

The Health Ranger yanks me off the Coronovirus fence

I have refused to get sucked in to either side of the virus reality debate. Partisans for both sides have long, well-established, thoroughly-warranted reputations for exaggerating, understating and flat-out lying more often than truthing. My guarantee has been that the second- and third-order effects will be dramatic and life-changing for all of us. That is still true, but having read the article and watched two ten-minute videos from Mike Adams has convinced me the very real effects of COVID will itself kill, sicken and weaken huge swaths of the world population. I highly recommend you review his look at the medical and political situation in the article and videos below. He is calm, thoughtful and absent the excesses typical […]

toilet paper

The media focused attention on toilet paper. Their slaves obediently soaked up every last roll coast to coast. It is a NOW WHAT? moment for those who are not ahead of the demand in their household. Invented in the late 1800s, people were pooping and surviving before that… as in FOR-EV-ER before that. Impossible we think. But some and perhaps all of us may have to think again. I will not analyze or itemize here. Chase these links to see some really good ideas that we may have to embrace sooner rather than later. Alternatives to Toilet Paper: What is Reusable Toilet Paper? What are the Alternatives? from Do-It-Yourself-Danielle About Toilet Paper First, the use of paper for toilet […]

2nd order effects kicking in

The media demonizes them as hoarders. Shoppers following in their wakes curse them as preppers. They are, however, neither of those. Preppers know that an event disrupting the intricate just-in-time delivery system of our society is inevitable. Analyzing what is really important for family survival, perhaps comfort, and insuring a reasonable supply is not only a way of life for them, it is subject matter they study and regularly review. Conservative planning centers around being ahead of the rush WHEN it happens, not IF it happens. The current crop of Costco Raiders are rather the great middle of our society. Those who have some ability to spend cash or credit when triggered by the media onslaught. Those a day […]

playing in the mud

Sean called his Darby Adult Ed class “Mud Made Mankind”. He gave us a wonderful introduction to working with clay, glazes, potter’s wheel and much more. We found ways to mold clay that didn’t work. We found ways that did. He was a wonderful teacher, cheerleader and assistant. I entered the class with a specific project in mind. I didn’t care if was the only creation I made, but I was focused on getting this one done. As you can see here, we pulled it off… and I do mean WE … Sean was a big help in many ways. I have a carnivorous pitcher plant that seems to like its home, rewarding me with a fly-free laundry room […]
