Democrat party in death throes

The democratic party as you know it is dead. Republicans, the party that was “supposed” to fade away into history now controls two branches of government. Democratic party leaders are in their 70s, which are Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders. In two years something like 25 senate seats will be up for election. This gives the GOP 2 years to turn the economy and the nation around. If they do, democrats will lose even more seats in the senate. The fear mongering, corporate loving, free trade loving, open immigration democrat party better get its act together before the final nails are driven in the coffin 2 years from now. The silent majority sees democrats for what they are, and we do not like it. Free Continue Reading….

Stockpiling antibacterial soap

Are you stockpiling antibacterial soap? If you answered yes, stop buying antibacterial soap and buy regular soap instead . Seems antibacterial has not been proven to be more effective than regular soap at preventing the spread of germs. In 2013 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested antibacterial soap manufacturers prove soap marketed as “antibacterial” was more effective than regular soap.  As of 2016 nothing has been proven. Full FDA write up – Antibacterial Soap? You Can Skip It. From the FDA website: “Following simple handwashing practices is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of many types of infection and illness at home, at school and elsewhere,” says Theresa M. Michele, MD, of the FDA’s Division of Nonprescription Drug Products. “We can’t Continue Reading….

Race had nothing to do with Trump winning

Donald Trump won the election based on President Obamas failed policies and the fear mongering done by Hillary Clinton. There was also the issue of: Hillary bragging about President Obama and his failed policies. The state department selling arms to ISIS. Email scandal. Democratic National Convention (DNC) rigged primaries. Danney Williams claiming Hillary kept him away from his father, Bill Clinton. Hillary accepting money from Saudi Arabia. DNC workers saying they can not believe their own primary hype. FBI not charging Hillary after investigating the email scandal. FBI not swearing Hillary in when she gave testimony during the investigation. Hillary refused to address free trade. Coal miners feared for their jobs under Hillary. Hillary did not address the rust belt. Hillary did not address jobs Continue Reading….

Hillary supporters in shock

Before the 2016 presidential election rabid liberal media were proudly proclaiming how Hillary Clinton was going to win.  One liberal leftist site predicted Hillary was going to win over 300 electoral college votes. Wednesday, November 9th 2016, those same liberal sites are quiet.  Some of the sites are flailing in their death throes, as if trying to grasp at the reality of the situation.  They were so sure Hillary was going to win, her losing was not even a thought. Major media had been so negative about Trump, that surely there was no way the brainwashed plebs would vote for him.  The plebs vote how the media tell them to, or so the media thought. The only thing left to do is for liberal democrats Continue Reading….

Who is to blame for Hillary Clinton losing the election

Who is to blame for Hillary losing the 2016 presidential election?  Start by blaming liberal agendas, wall street, liberal elite, globalist,,, everyone who has turned their back on everyday working people. Hillary Clinton losing and Donald Trump winning is the result of the government turning its back on the people for decades. To understand and explain the election of 2016 we need to go back to the 1970s.  All the way back to when Richard Nixon was president. Richard Nixon – Let’s start back in the 1970s with Richard Nixon.  Nixon opened relations with China.  Shortly after toy company started moving production to China.  Factories closed, people started losing their jobs and company profits started going up.  Wall Street loved not having to pay workers Continue Reading….

Why did Hillary lose the 2016 election

Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas. We are tired of free trade. We want our jobs back from China. We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family. We are tired of banks getting bailed out. We are tired of wall street getting a free ride. We are tired of obama being more interested in bathrooms than veterans. Fear mongering We are tired of democrats fear mongering to divide us. Without fear democrats have no political platform. That is the way they have been in the past and that is the way they will always be. Democrats thrive on turning one demographic against another. Hillarys whole platform was built on how one group, Continue Reading….

Dr Strange review

Dr. Strange is probably the best Marvel movie to date. I used to think the first Iron Man was the best, but Dr. Strange blows Iron Man out of the water. The story line is perfect. The plot building is perfect. The acting is perfect. The special effects are perfect. There are a couple of scenes that I feel were unneeded, such as a guy getting his head cut off. The scene could of stopped at the sword stroke and the rest would of been implied, but just as good if not better than what was in the movie. Benedict Cumberbatch is a “perfect” Dr. Strange. What Robert Downey Jr. did for Iron Man, and Chris Hemsworth does for Thor, Benedict Cumberbatch is above all Continue Reading….

Stoves for bugging out

In the prepping community, there is a lot of focus on stoves for a bug out bag, while stoves for events such as natural disasters are overlooked. A stove for an individual bug out bag is different than a family sized stove. Do you need a two burner store, one burner stove, propane fuel, liquid fuel, will you be using a lantern?  Do you need a stove for a car survival kit or a stove for a cabin off in the woods? Before we begin, I want to make it clear I am not a big fan of liquid fuel.  Whether it is Coleman fuel or gasoline, I feel liquid fuels can be dangerous in certain situations.  Then there is the spilling issue with liquid Continue Reading….

Random thoughts October 26 2016

I am 48 years old, getting close to turning 49.  Life has not gone anywhere near like what I wanted.  A large part of that is my own fault.  When I graduated high school I went into the work force rather than joining the military or going to college.  The older I get the more I regret those decisions. At 17 and 18 years old I wanted to join the army and try out for special forces.  Some may call that a pipe dream, while others call it silly.  I call it having a dream. Par of life should be following your dreams. Rather than joining the army I got married and had children. The other things I wanted to do, and have wanted to Continue Reading….

Thrunite TN4A Flashlight Review

Up until a few months ago I had never heard of Thrunite. The leaders of the high quality flashlight pack are names like Surefire and Streamlight. Those guys better up their game because Thrunite is offering a quality product at a very affordable price. Full disclosure: I received the Thrunite TN4A at no cost to myself. Receiving a sample at no cost to myself will not influence my opinion as I look at the results of the test. The most important factor is if the flashlight passed all of the test and continue operating. The test: Some of the youtube viewers have accused me of abusing the flashlights in my test. One example is the Thrunite TN12 review where the flashlight is put through all Continue Reading….

Watchmen The Sound of Silence

The watchmen, released in 2009 is a superhero movie of such epic proportions it is somewhat difficult to describe. Is it a love story, maybe a war story, vigilante story, underdog story, or maybe all of them? There are so many parallel plots going that there is no lack of action or lack story. The Watchmen is not just one story, or two stories,,, but a bunch of stories all rolled into a beautiful mess. While browsing through youtube I found this video and wanted to share it with all of you. It is beautiful, elegant, moving and a work of art.

Life in a medieval castle

If you have ever wondered what life in a medieval castle was like, this is the book for you. Joseph and Frances Gies describes in great detail everything from how, why and when castles were first built, their evolution and finally their decline. While reading life in a medieval castle I sometimes forgot this was a book about castles. The authors offer such a wide spectrum of history that surrounds castles that it is easy to lose oneself in the book. Chapters include: The castle comes to england The lord The castle as a house The lady The household A day in the castle – which I found very interesting Hunting as a way of life The villagers The making of a knight The castle Continue Reading….

Building a Railroad Track Anvil

Homemade railroad track anvil

Rather than buying an anvil, I decided to build one out of a piece of track and tie plate I found in my grandfathers old barn. The barn is maybe 75 – 100 years old and has various pieces of farm equipment in and around it.

There are various examples on youtube of railroad track anvils. A lot of them involve drilling or cutting holes in the base of the track and then securing it to a stand. Why not weld the track to a tie plate, and then bolt them to a stand? Seems to me having a wider base of the tie plate would distribute pressure while beating on the track.

I wanted something besides your typical piece of railroad track welded, chained, or bolted to a stand. I wanted something that when people see it they say “that is cool”. I wanted something that was semi-portable. So that when I build my pole barn I can move the anvil and stand to the barn. Continue Reading….

Mama guinea with her keets

Guineafowl are loud, not as friendly as chickens, not very smart, but for some reason they are fun to have around the farm. In late summer of 2015 I got a dozen guineas along with some chicks. Over the course of the next few months 4 of the guineas went missing or died. I found one guinea chick dead from what I suspect was heat stroke. Guineas are not supposed to be good parents, and that may be true. What I am seeing with my guineas, the chicks have to keep up with the flock, kinda like sink or swim. While at the same time the flock protects the chicks. The guinea flock will run off any chicken that dares get close to the keets. Continue Reading….

CNN reporter admits media giving Hillary free ride

CNN reporter admits the media has been giving Hillary a free ride.  The also admits they are the biggest ones promoting her campaign. When the media is corrupt, who are the people supposed to turn to for the truth? This is the downfall of capitalism.  News agencies are nothing but a business to make money.  If they do not make money they close their doors and people lose their jobs, which may not be a bad thing when it comes to CNN. Major media has a responsibility to present the people the facts.  This does not include censoring the details, such as omitting wikileaks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVhmX9Afk1A In all honesty, this is nothing new with CNN.  They have been pushing liberal agendas as far back as I Continue Reading….
