Ramblings Of A Bored Survivalist

Feeling down

Feels like I am slipping underwater, lips barely breaking the surface to gasp for air.

I do not understand why I am feeling this way. Last summer my wife and I got moved to a rural area. We can finally live the lifestyle we want – have a garden, plant fruit trees, have chickens, live in peace and quiet, and for some reason I am feeling down.

There is so much I need to do, but so little time.

Need to build a rain water catch system to irrigate the garden, plant peas, beans, squash, melons, want to go fishing, build a larger chicken yard,,, feel overwhelmed.

One of the big questions in the prepping / survivalist community is when did you start prepping? My great grandparents lived on a small farm, my dad was raised on this same small farm, my mom was raised in a rural area and had chickens and a garden. I was exposed to gardening, farming and  [ Read More ]




Puppies killed one of my chicks

Puppies

A couple of weeks ago I picked up two puppies someone had dropped off on the side of the road. My wife and I live in a rural area which means people can drop off unwanted pets with a low risk of being spotted. The puppies were living in a hollow log on the side  [ Read More ]




To die with a view

Posted by Kevin Felts On March 8, 2014 0 Comments

This might seem a little morbid, but when you die, would you like your corpse to have a view of the sky and stars?

While looking around youtube I came across a video showing the corpses that litter Mt. Everest. When I was watching the video I thought to myself what it may be like to be on a place like Everest forever.

Corpses can not see or hear, but imagine if they could. How splendid it would be to be on Mt. Everest, to watch the wind, the snow, and see the stars.

Would you rather your corpse be buried in a box, burned to ashes, or sitting under the stars. Watch the video and then share your thoughts in the comments section.

My neighbor was robbed

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 12, 2014 0 Comments

An older gentlemen and his wife who live close to me were robbed last friday. They were out of town for a couple on a trip that lasted thursday through saturday.

Sometime while they were gone the front door was kicked in, the whole gun safe was stolen, and the thieves tried to steal a truck. But while in the process of moving the truck to load stuff in it, the thieves got the truck stuck in the yard.

It seems like people are no longer safe regardless of where they go. I figure that living in a rural area crime would be non-existent, but it is still here.

Thieves are like democrats. You work hard all your whole life, accumulate property, then someone kicks in your door and takes it from you. It it is not the democrats then it is the child support office, the irs or some other agency trying to take what you have worked hard for.

What do people have to do to live in peace and quiet?




Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 11, 2014 2 Comments

Judge Lisa Millard sentenced Clifford Hall 6 months in in jail for a crime he did not commit.

It seems that his child support payments were modified without his knowledge, which violates the due process clause of the U.S. constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees that the government can not take a persons property or liberty without a chance to present their own evidence in a court of law.

Judge Lisa Millard should be removed from office and prohibited from every holding a public office, or any office that has authority over the people. Judge Lisa Millard along with the Harris county child support office is a perfect example of how dads are being driven into child support induced poverty.

Now that Clifford Hall is in jail how is he supposed to pay his child support?

The story behind this video as I understand it, the wife gets drunk and tells a joke. The husband records the joke, animates it, and makes a video out of it.

Random Thoughts May 6 2013

Posted by Kevin Felts On May 6, 2013 0 Comments

Over the past few days I have been thinking about a lot of stuff. A lot of small stuff, to small to make their own post about. So I thought I would combine a lot of small topics into a random thoughts post.Kevin Felts, Blogger and Survivalist

I promised a buddy of mine that I would tone the political stuff down. Rather than posting political topics here, I will keep them on PBJ News. So here goes.

Video Gaming -I guess it is a matter of me getting older, but fewer and fewer games have that “wow” factor. Back in the 1980s and 1990s some of my buddies and I could play Atari and Super Nintendo for hours at a time.

Now, its takes a lot of keep me interested in a game. Borderlands 2 got boring within 2 hours and Skyrim lost it after maybe 2 – 3 hours. The only game that has been able to keep my interest over the past 3 years had been Left 4 Dead 1 & 2. Since Diablo III has the always on internet requirement I did not even bother buying it.




PBJ News

Posted by Kevin Felts On May 1, 2013 0 Comments

After receiving some complaints about the amount of political commentary on this site, I have decided to do two things:

1 – Reduce the amount of political commentary posted here.

2 – Open a new website where I can rant all I want about political stuff.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

The new site is called PBJ News, as in Peanut Butter and Jelly news. Why PB&J? Because it is quick, simple, and something that fills the soul. It is a name just about everyone can relate to and it is easy to remember.

With all of the gun hating, conservative hating, family values hating sites on the net, I figured we needed a site that pushed conservative values. I have this vision of PBJ news being not only a conservative news site, but also a conservative opinion site.




We Need More Bomb Control

Posted by Kevin Felts On April 16, 2013 0 Comments

After the events in Boston is has become clear that we need more bomb control.

Here is what I purpose:

7 day waiting period on buying a bomb – This is a cool off time to make sure someone is not buying a bomb to kill a jilted lover. The cool off period is to give the person buying the bomb time to think about their actions.

We do not want someone buying a bomb in haste or while they are angry.

Background check for all bomb purchases – We want to make sure bombs do not fall into the wrong hands. The background check is to make sure those buying a bomb are not criminals (like criminals care about laws).

Said Goodbye To A Friend

Posted by Kevin Felts On March 3, 2013 0 Comments

Saturday, March 2, 2013 I said goodbye to an old friend. C.D. Broussard lived life as it was supposed to be lived. He never had a harsh word to say about anyone, not once did I see him get angry. When C.D was at your house you were never bored, as C.D. could carry on a conversation with anyone. Whether it was computers, comic books, video games,,, C.D. knew something about it.

In December 2011 C.D. Broussard was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

He lived the good life,
He fought the good fight,
and now he rest as he has never rested before.

C.D. Broussard lost his struggle with cancer in February 2013.




A Friend Has Passed Away

Posted by Kevin Felts On February 21, 2013 0 Comments

Got a phone call from a buddy of mine informing me a mutual friend had passed away.

December 2011 C.D. was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He had been feeling ill for a long time, maybe 6 months or more. But as most men do, C.D. put off going to the doctor.

He fought the good fight,
He lived life as it should be lived,
Good drink,
Good food,
Good friends.




Another Sissification Example

Posted by Kevin Felts On February 7, 2013 0 Comments

Just another example of the sissification of America, this time its from Dartmouth college.

In short, college kid talks jibberish to a couple of asian students. Asian students are offended and file a complaint.

Holy crap, really? I wish I could file a complaint everytime I have been offended.

Offended asian kids, welcome to the real world. Think you will be able to file a complaint when you have a flat tire, or when the power goes out, or when a bird craps on your car, or when you get sick,,,,. The world is full of unpleasant situations, get used to it.




January 28 1986

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 28, 2013 0 Comments

It is funny how I remember certain things as if they were yesterday, and then it seems like who years are missing from my memory.

January 28, 1986 is a day I remember quite well.

On January 28, 1986 I skipped school with Bryan, Eric, and my brother. We found out later that day the space shuttle had blown up.

If I remember right, Bryans truck had a flat tire as we were going through burger king for breakfast that morning. We agreed a flat tire was a good reason to skip school.

What did we do with our free time? We ended up shooting pine cones out of trees with 22 rifles for a couple of hours. I bought my Ruger 10/22 the day I turned 18 years old – January 17, 1986. I was itching to take my new rifle out and shoot something, so why not shoot pine cones?

After we got tired of shooting pine cones, we went to Erics house to watch TV. It was at this time we saw the news that the space shuttle had blown up.

Eric was upset because he changed the TV channel and his moms soap opera did not record on the VCR. Maybe “upset” is not the best word to describe the situation. Eric was on the edge of being in tears. He was worried his mother was going to beat him when she found out he skipped school.




Turning 45 Years Old

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 17, 2013 0 Comments

Today is my birthday, I turned 45 years old. Depending on how you look at it, turning 45 is either not too bad, or it sucks.

Retirement – One thing that bothers me is I am nowhere near being ready for retirement. I partially blame myself, but I also blame every 401k management firm I have used. Since 1994 just about every 401k management firm has lost money, except for the one I am using now. How am I supposed to save for retirement when the people managing my 401k lose 20% of my money every year?Kevin Felts blogger and survivalist

Something I worry about is if social security is going to be around when I retire? I know people who have never worked a day in their life and they are drawing social security disability. I work and pay into the system for some lazy bum to draw benefits?

Working Hard – When I was growing up, kids were told to “grow up, get a job and work hard.” Because we “worked hard” our efforts would be recognized and we would be rewarded. I know now that is a lie. Working hard is a wage slave mentality. No company is going to reward your efforts unless they have to.
