Justice League Movie Review

The Justice League movie is getting a lot of undeserved bad reviews. My wife, my daughter and I went to go see Justice League at Tinsel Town in Beaumont, Texas on November 19, 2017. I felt I got my moneys worth.

When we go to the movies, we pay to be entertained. I was entertained and had a good time.

The negative Justice League reviews are nothing more than a reflection of how terrible DC has been able to capitalize on decades of super hero comics.

Take Batman for example:

How many people have played him over the decades?
How many times does the origin story have to be retold?
Ben Affleck has received a lot of undeserved negative reviews.
Each Batman series seems to have no tie-in with the others. Continue Reading….

Good Times Created A Weak Generation

Compared to the Boomers, the children of Boomers (Generation X) are weak. Not just weak physically, but also weak emotionally.

Millennials are weaker than Gen. X and boomers. Watching Antifa protest President Trump and conservatives as being Fascist is rather sad. When questioned, a lot of the kids can not provide an exact answer to questions about president Trump. From the looks of them, most of the Millennials have never held a manual labor job. They have never built anything, never welded anything, never worked 80 hours a week doing a manual labor job. But, they can find the time to protest against something they do not understand?

Where has society failed Millennials? For example, recent polls show Millennials favor Communism and Socialism over Capitalism. Yet they protest so called Fascist? This shows the level of their intelligence. Communism, Socialism and Fascism are all first cousins. Continue Reading….

Democrats Becoming Increasingly Unhinged

In the United States we are supposed to have a peaceful transfer of power. When one party loses an election, they are supposed to accept the results and work with the party that now has the majority vote. This peaceful transfer of power did not happen after the 2016 election.

Democrat controlled media continues to push the idea that Russia swayed the election. Since nothing is coming from that, now articles of impeachment have been filed.

There are numerous reasons why Hillary lost, and none of them are related to Russia. The honest truth is, democrats are undermining the republic. Rather than working with the GOP and President Trump, democrats are digging in their heals and will grid lock the government for the next four years, and maybe even the next eight years.

My dad told my today’s democrats are not the same democrats from decades ago. Democrats use to stand for the working people. Now they stand for gay rights, illegal immigration, and debauchery such as abortion. Millennial democrats see any corporation with republicans as an act of treason against the democrat party. What the millennials do not understand, the party’s have to work together, or the government will grind to a halt. There “has” to be some give and take on both sides.

This is what happens when everyone gets a trophy. Kids grow into adults who expect to be winners all the time. When Trump won the election in 2016 was probably the first time a bunch of them were told “no” in their entire lives. Continue Reading….

We Need Shows Like Hee Haw

Would you like to know what is wrong with society? We need more Hee Haw and less reality TV shows. We need something families can sit in front up and have a good laugh.

As I write this post I am 49 years old, and will turn 50 in a few months. When I was a kid in the 1970s, mom, dad, my brother and I would watch Hee Haw. More or less mom and dad would watch the show and my brother and I would sit in the living room with them.

It was an hour filled with good family time, talking, laughing and having a good time. After Hee Haw was over, it would be time for a bath and bed.

Society needs something to bring families back together, and not drug, sex and violence laden reality TV shows. Continue Reading….

Living Near a Hunting Lease

Zoey and Ellis dogs

Some of you may ask, “What is a hunting lease?” It is where a group of people lease land from someone, like a timber company, for the purpose of hunting on the land.

Leasing land is nothing new. We have historical documents dating back to the medieval ages that talk about leasing land. In the book Life in a Medieval Village by Frances and Joseph Gies the authors talk about how people leased land for grazing livestock. My grandfather leased land from a local timber company back in the 1950s and 1960s to graze cattle on.

When someone leases land, they have access and use of the land for a certain amount of time. Here in Southeast Texas, a lot of land is leased from the timber companies to hunt on. Continue Reading….

Adding To The Prepping Library

Survival books

As some of you may or may not know Paladin Press is going out of business. Some of their books are marked down to 65% off.

If you want to add to your prepping library, now is a great time to do it.

Those of you who know me and follow my youtube channel know I live in a rural area and am developing a self-sustainable homestead. The books I picked out are ones that talk about the direction I am going in.

The trapping books are so I can trap on the farm and around the outside skirt of the farm. My property is bordered by hundreds of acres of timber company land. The people who hunt the land rarely get close to the property line. this allows me to trap small game on the edge of the property line without issues. Continue Reading….

Three Broody Hens in The Chicken House

Broody hens

Three of my hens have gone broody and are sitting on eggs. One of them even hatched out a chick.

For those of you who do know, broody means a hen has gone into a mothering mode and is sitting on some eggs. The eggs are called a clutch. Some chicken breeds go broody more than others, and some breeds rarely if ever go broody.

What gets me:

Two of the hens are Barred Rocks, which rarely go broody.

One is an Australorp, which has a reputation of going broody.

My first set of chickens was back around 1987 or 1988. My wife and I butchered out that first set of Barred Rocks when they were around two years old, and I did not get any more until 2012.

So in the seven years I have kept chickens, only two barred rocks have gone broody. Continue Reading….

Millennials Favor Communism and Socialism

Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

Millennials are disillusioned with capitalism are are turning to communism and socialism.

Can we honestly blame them? Standard of living in the United States has been stagnated since the 1970s, bleak job prospects, oppressive student debt, and the “follow your dreams” ideology turned out to be a lie.

In other words, everything built by a capitalist society has left millennials with little hope.

Little hope of owning a home.
No hope of being financially independent.
Little hope of living the American dream.
No hope of being able to afford to have a family.

Millennials have rejected an economic system that exploits workers. Why would someone want to dedicate themselves to a line of work that would keep them in borderline poverty? That is one reason why I left the welding shops of southeast Texas. Who in their right state of mind wants to dedicate decades of their life to working, and have nothing to show for it? Thus is the end result of capitalism. Continue Reading….

Patrol Pack First Impressions

Patrol Pack

Overall, I found the patrol pack to be a well rounded and perfect addition to my backpack collection.

Call me old fashioned, if I like something, then I hang onto it. For the longest time ,one of my go-to packs for day hikes and even warm weather overnight trips was a Jansport black book bag. That pack was retired when I migrated to a Maxpedition.

For several years my go-to pack was a Maxpedition Condor II. The Condor II is a great pack that is perfect for day long excursions.

As with everything else, after using the Condor II for several years, I decided it was time to try something new. So where did I go to find a new pack? I went to Ebay and looked through various military surplus packs. Continue Reading….

Paladin Press Closing Its Doors

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Some of the people reading this post may not even know who Paladin Press is, much less care they are going out of business. This is truly a sad time, as independent publishers like Paladin Press kept information flowing into the survivalist community during the dark ages of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Let’s go back to the 1980s and 1990s.

After the end of the Cold War things were good. The Soviet Union had been defeated without ever firing a round, the economy was going good, and overall, life was grand. Being a survivalist was ok.

Then along came Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City incident. When it came out Timothy had been a member of a survivalist group, all of a sudden “survivalist” was a bad name. Main stream publications dropped certain advertisers who sold to the survivalist community. Continue Reading….

Government Has Ground To A Halt

Democrats are digging in their hills and refusing to work with President Trump. Also, there is a new type of Democrat that considers any teamwork with Republicans an act of betrayal. Anything President Trump tries to do is met with resistance. What people do not understand, Trump is the resistance.

Trump was elected because people are sick and tired of business as usual. We are tired of the government squeezing every penny they can get out of the middle class. We are tired of corporate welfare, free trade, wall street, illegal immigration… etc.

The problem is, the younger generation only knows a democrat president.

The democrat party of today is not the same party as decades ago. Democrats use to stand for working class people. Trade unions turned to Democrats to protect jobs. But, in the 1990s, unions turned their backs on the working class when unions supported free trade. Continue Reading….

Diversity is Strangling The United States

Hiking trip

Diversity is a good thing, until it comes to politics. Ever since Republicans took control of both houses and the Presidency in the 2016 elections, congress has been unable to pass any meaningful legislation.

Affordable Care Act – not fixed.
GOP has not passed any laws easing firearm restrictions.
Tax reform has stalled, which is an excellent example of opposing sides strangling the nation.

President Trump wants a tax reform bill that would cut certain write-offs. One of those write-offs is being able to write the interest paid on your home mortgage off income taxes. California and New York oppose the bill. Without the support of Representatives from from New York and California, it is unlikely the bill will pass. So, the rest of the nation is held hostage because high income states enjoy certain tax write-offs?

Fast Food Workers

People working fast food need to understand, it is a training program. If you can not make a burger right the first time, how are you supposed to build a refinery, road, dam, power lines, computer network… right the first time?

How many companies would tolerant a welder using the wrong welding rod several times a day? You welded that part wrong, cut the weld out and use this welding rod. Only for the person to weld it wrong again.

Or a chemical plant – “You ordered the wrong type of pipe, that is the 10th time this week.” You installed the wrong part, there is no way it ca hold the pressure, do it again. Only for the person to do it wrong, again. Continue Reading….

To Love And To Lose

Dogs walking in a creek

The pain of losing my new puppy Buckshot reminds me of how bad it hurts to lose something you love. My heart has been broken for two days, and I suspect the pain will last for months, maybe even years.

Buckshot came to the house looking for someone to love him. All he wanted was for someone to play with him and love him. He did not suffer and passed away within just a few seconds after being ran over.

The person who said it was better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved, was an idiot. The pain builds up over the years. Sorrow, pain and regret fills our memories, or at least mine anyway. Continue Reading….

One of my Dogs Passed Away

Pet dog Buckshot

It is with deep regret that I have to make this post. The newest dog to the pack, a four month old puppy by the name of Buckshot, ran in front of a truck, was ran over and died on August 4th, 2017.

There is a private dirt road that goes through the farm that my cousins use to access their home. It was on that road, Buckshot ran in front of my cousins truck and was ran over. He did not suffer and passed away just a few seconds after the accident.

Several months ago one of my cousins brought Buckshot home for her mother, my aunt. My aunt, being an older lady may have had difficulties taking care of the puppy. It seemed like every day Buckshot was at my house to play with my dogs and look for food. I put a feed bowl on the front porch and would make sure the puppy had plenty of food. Continue Reading….
