Star Wars: The Last Jedi Honest Review

Kevin Felts political commentator

Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in one word – terrible.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi review in two words – absolutely terrible.

Where do we begin?

Spaceship runs out of fuel in an age of advanced science. We can put a nuclear powered rover on Mars, but spaceships in the future run out of fuel. It would seem if ships could travel light speed, they can have an unlimited fuel source. Unneeded emotional appeal.

Movie felt like a roll playing game with one quest after another.

Music was lame.

Death of evil Sith master who nobody had an emotional attachment to.

Lame death of Luke Skywalker that felt like something from Excalibur (1981 movie). Continue Reading….

Facebook Did Not Help Donald Trump Get Elected President

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The leftist are at it again. This time they are blaming Facebook data harvesting and social engineering for Hillary Clinton losing the 2016 presidential election.

When are progressive left Socialist Democrats going to realize what cost them the election is the general public disagrees with their agenda.

The leftist believe all they had to do was follow the script and Hillary would be elected president. Just get on TV, say the right words, make the right promises, and the nation would have another Democrat president.

Things did not turn out as the progressive Socialist left expected. Everyday working people saw through their lies and voted for real change. In short, we voted for Donald Trump.

Using A Pocket Compass While Hiking With The Dogs

Dogs on a hiking trip

Awhile back we talked about a 50 cent pocket compass I ordered off Ebay. Rather than buying the compass from an online store, just go straight to the source and cut out the middle man.

Paracord zipper pulls were added to my packs, and then the compass was attached to the paracord. Is the pocket compass a primary land navigation aid? Of course not. The pocket compass is used in conjunction with other navigation aids.

For example, while on a recent hiking trip with the dogs we stopped next to a nice pool of water to take a break. While the dogs were playing, I looked at the pocket compass to make sure we were headed in the right direction.

I know the area and there was no way we could have become lost. A pipeline passes through the forest just a few hundred yards from where the dogs and I stopped. Then there is a dirt road that bisects the pipeline. No matter which way we headed, we would hit either the road or the pipeline, as long as we traveled in a straight line.

Gun Control Communist Fascist Socialist and Democrats

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

What do Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats all have in common? Let’s exclude the obvious, such as human rights violations, mass murder, slavery, opposing civil rights, genocide… etc.

All four promote gun control.

For all intents and purposes, there is very little difference between Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats.

Some readers may be quick to say, “Democrats are champions of civil rights.” That is a common misconception.

Here is one of the Democrat policies spelled out.

  • Create a lie that victimizes a certain group.
  • Repeat the lie until people of the supposed victimized group accept it as truth.
  • Tell the fake victims the only way to protect themselves is to take rights away from the other group.
  • After rights are taken away from the fictitious aggressors, create a new group of victimized people.
  • Make up a lie, repeat the lie until the next group believes it.

The Story of Buster My Black Mouth Cur Farm Dog

Buster black mouth cur farm dog

On the Saturday morning of March 10th, 2018 I went to open the chicken house, and my Cur dog was not with the other two. Zoey, Ellis and Buster usually run together. Zoey and Ellis were home, but Buster was not.

He was not home before Saturday night. When dark rolled around, I was very concerned.

Sunday, I spent 3/4 of the day looking for buster. The rest of the day was spent getting ready for Monday.

Monday, got up and wrote some articles for alloutdoor, spent the rest of the day looking for Buster. Did a hiking trip through the area where the dogs usually prowl.

Monday night I was an emotional train wreck. Blaming myself for not having him fixed… etc.

6:30 Tuesday morning Buster was at the front door. Back leg looks like it was clipped by a vehicle. Nothing bad, just some road rash.

He is probably the most affectionate dog I have ever owned. He loves to snuggle in the bed, and will sometimes sleep with his head on my shoulder. Continue Reading….

Democrats: Limit Rights Until 21 Years Old

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

There is a growing movement across the United States that is demanding the legal age to purchase a firearm be moved up to 21 years old. Buyers already have to be 21 years old to purchase handguns. Rifles and shotguns are 18 years old.

I am sick and tired of the right to keep and bear arms being treated as a second class right. So let’s take this idiotic idea of raising the age limit to 21 and apply it to other rights.

Freedom of political speech should be limited to someone at least 21 years old. Anyone under 21 who makes a political statement should be charged with a crime.

Freedom of religion should start at 21 years old. No person should be allowed to attend a religious gathering, pray, or anything associated with religion until they are 21 years old.

What Is a Prepsteader?

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

What is a prepsteader? It is someone who combines prepping and homesteading. However, the complete answer is a little more complicated.

To see the whole picture we need to go back to at least the 1970s, or maybe the early 1980s. What we consider prepping today was everyday life during the cold war.

During the Cold War, people lived under the constant threat of nuclear war. Because of that people kept a stockpile of food and other supplies. After all, you never knew when the bombs were going to fall.

When the Berlin Wall came down after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States entered into a short lived period of peace. For the first time since the end of World War II we were at a true peace.

The came along Waco, Ruby Ridge and the Oklahoma City Bombing. When it came out that Timothy Mcveigh was part of a survivalist group, the name survivalist became taboo almost overnight.

Spring Is a Beautiful Time of Year

Spring time sprouts on a fig trees

Spring is a wonderful time of year. Everything is blooming, birds are migrating, leaves are coming out, and farm supply stores have their plants in stock. This is one time of the year that is special to a lot of people.

The cold wet weather of winter is yielding to the warmer temperatures of spring. Old man winter is not finished though as March is an active time of year. The back and forth between cold and warm weather may remind observers of young boys having a shoving match on a school playground.

Eventually though, as sure as the sun sets and rises, old man winter must yield to spring, and spring must yield to summer. Before the oppressive summer heat sets in, maybe we should get outside and enjoy the warmer weather?

The winter of 2017 – 2018 will be one for the record books. Most of the nation has been cooped up in our homes for weeks on end. Our only ventures outside have been to go to work, home, buy groceries.. and the absolute necessities. Continue Reading….

Difference Between GMO, Hybrid and Heirloom Seeds

Spring plants at a local outlet store.

What are the differences between genetically modified organisms (GMO) sometimes called GM, hybrid and heirloom seeds? Some people think hybrid and GMO are the same thing – they are not the same.

GMO – Genetically modified organisms. The seed has been modified on the genetic level. For example, a scientist may splice the gene from a fish into a corn seed. In nature that could never happen.

Hybrid – Cross pollination between two related species. For example, cross breed a horse and a donkey and you get a mule. A mule is a hybrid between two closely related species. In the plant kingdom, closely related plants can cross pollinate. If the seeds from a hybrid are saved, the seeds may be sterile. If the seeds do grow, the plant may not be like its parents.

Heirloom – Pollinated by its own species. Saved seeds will bear true to form. The seeds can be saved from this plant, and replanted over and over. Continue Reading….

Disappointed In YouTube Video Views

Bushel of potatoes

Guys and gals, what gives in the number of views my YouTube videos are getting? Why do I have 38,878 subscribers (as of March 2018) but my videos only get a few hundred views? Why would someone subscribe to my YouTube channel if they are not going to watch my videos?

I suspect some of the subscribers may have been spam bots, but surely not all of them?

Out of all of the prepping channels on YouTube, mine covers the widest variety of topics, but no firearms. When I joined the google adsense program over a decade ago the writing was on the wall. Google YouTube would not tolerate hunting or gun videos.

Sometime around 2007 or 2008 I posted a video on how to skin a squirrel. The video was flagged as animal cruelty and my account received a warning. From that time forward I never posted another hunting video. Even when people posted request on skinning videos, I avoided the topic. Continue Reading….

Watch The Dogs And I Walk Around The Farm

Puppy on a nature walk

Dogs and I went for a walk around the farm and made a video about it. I was looking for oak trees that may have blown over during a recent storm. The roots of oak trees run close to the top of the soil. When the soil becomes saturated, and then we get some high winds, there is a chance an oak tree will uproot an fall over.

Once we find a tree that has blown over, it is just a matter of cutting the tree up and splitting it for firewood. Unfortunately, we did not find any blown over trees this trip.

Pine trees on the other hand, they have a deeo tap root that is supposed to be around half as deep as the tree is tall. Because of the tap root, pine trees rarely blow over. If the winds get high enough, a pine tree is more likely to snap in half than blow over.

Society Needs Jesus Back In Our Lives

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Jesus taught a message of love, and for that he is hated. What does that say about society? It says there are some people whos hearts are full of hate. The very idea of spreading the message of “love your neighbor” causes them to go into a rage. They start babbling about things to discredit the message of love. Why would someone fight against love? Why would someone want the world to be filled with hate?

The simple answer is their hearts are full of hate.

The mouth is a reflection of what fills the heart. A lot of people will disagree with that. However, when a person argues against Jesus, who only taught peace and love, their heart is not filled with love.

Society has been taught there is no GOD. What examples can we look at when societies reject GOD? China comes to mind, and so does Russia. Continue Reading….

Can Not Legislate a Conscience

Kevin Felts political commentator

If there is one thing that should stop mass shootings, but fails, it has to be the conscience. The conscience is supposed to point people in the right direction. It is supposed to help us help us make the right decision. What happened to the conscience of mass shooters?

What makes mass shooters different from serial killers? Instead of killing a dozen people over the course of a decade like a serial killer, a mass shooter kills a dozen people in a few minutes.

After the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, the gun grabbers were out in full force. The bodies were still warm when they were offered up as a sacrificial lamb to justify gun control. The bodies were held high, as if to impress the GOD of gun control.

Just as drugs and illegal immigrants slip across the border, so would illegal weapons. If border security can not stop millions of illegal immigrants, what is to assure us illegal guns can be stopped?
