This post started off about Russian President Putin and how much of a failed leader our own president is. Then I got off on a tangent about free trade and jobs. The end result was just some kind of random thought article.

While looking for news on the Crimea situation I came across an article on the Wall Street Journal – Warnings From the Ukraine Crisis.

I do not fully agree with the author, but I do agree with a lot of what she says. One comment should ring a rang a wake up call for the United States,

We have been a nation divided for a long time. Whether the division was by race, sex, sexual preference, religion, political party,,, we have been and will continue to be a nation divided.

Since the late 1960s and 1970s we have become more divided with each passing decade. This division shows in the quality of our elected officials.




If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep It

Rap video about the lies the American people were told.

What amazes me, not only was obama elected once, he was relected.

Are people really this stupid? I bet if obama could run for a third term the sheeple would elect him for a third term.

Most people are not ready for the truth. and the truth is we are going to get screwed over on our health care. Who do we have to blame? Place the blame where it belongs, on people who vote for for a living. Rather than electing a qualified person to lead this nation, we elected someone who is good at reading from a teleprompter.




Clown Who Wore an Obama Mask

Posted by Kevin Felts On August 15, 2013 0 Comments

For those of you who have been sleeping under a rock may not know, a clown in the Missouri State Fair wore an Obama mask during the performance.

Here is the funny part, people are actually upset about it. The Missouri chapter of the NAACP has called for a federal investigation into a rodeo clown.

What good is our right to political speech if we do not use it? If mocking the president is not protected speech, then what is?

The Writing Is On The Wall

Posted by Kevin Felts On February 18, 2013 0 Comments

The writing is on the wall, the United States is a on road of steady decline, and the U.S. government is preparing for widespread civil unrest.

Now for evidence to backup my statement:

China is Now the Biggest Trading Nation of the World – Forget trading with the United States. Since the 1990s we have given our factories and our jobs to China.

The dollar is being replaced as the world currency – Now that China has the factories and the jobs, it’s just a matter of time before the before the Chinese yuan replaces the U.S. dollar.

What is the dollar backed by? A promise to repay our debt, and nothing more. What is going to happen when our debt grows to a point where it can not be repaid? Is the federal reserve going to print more money, which will fuel inflation?

The U.S. dollar is backed by nothing. Now its a matter of time before the rest of the world realizes that.

Homeland Security wants to buy more than 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the next four or five years – 1.6 billion rounds? How much ammunition do we need to fight a major conflict, say maybe with China?

Drones over U.S. soil – I sure hope those drones are being used in our war on drugs.

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – Just like what happened to Native Americans and Japanese Americans, get ready to be detained without due process, and as long as the government wants.




Have you wondered how much contempt the government has for our service members? During the presidential inauguration parade, the rifles carried by the marines had their bolts removed. Also notice president obama is standing behind some form of glass, I am going to guess it was bulletproof lexan.

What kind of president do we have that our soldiers can not be trusted with weapons around him, and he stands behind bulletproof glass?




State Of The Nation February 2013

Posted by Kevin Felts On February 3, 2013 0 Comments

While shopping at the local wal-mart here in Jasper Texas, I noticed a couple of things that made me stop and think. One issue was the availability of ammunition, or rather the lack of ammunition. The other issue I am deeply concerned about was the price of a whole fryer chicken.

Ammunition – Everyone and their brother and sister is panic buying all the ammunition they can get their hands on. If civilians can strip the market of all available ammunition, where would this leave the United States if we entered a real war? Iraq and Afghanistan are not “real” wars, they are minor conflicts. The Iraq military is not bombing New York, L.A., Houston or Dallas, tens of thousands of US citizens are not dying every week, its not like in World War II when food and fuel were being rationed,,,.Speckled Sussex, Australorp, Barred Rock and Rhode Island Red

The United States has some minor conflicts going on, but for some reason the store shelves have been empty of ammunition for close to a month and a half?

How would this translate if/when we have a major war with China? The conflict does not have to be with China. Lets replace China with <any major world power>.

Over the past few decades firearm manufacturing has been consolidated to a just a handful of companies. there are a lot of companies out there, but very few of them manufacturer all of their own parts. the situation is much worse with ammunition manufacturing. Part of our national security depends on our ability to produce weapons of war. The question I am asking myself is if the manufacturing base can keep up with demand. Since the Sandy Hook shooting demand has been outstripping supply.




Can The Republicans Win In 2016

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 28, 2013 4 Comments

Lets be honest, the democratic party played their cards rather well. The party rallied enough special interest groups to get obama elected the first time, and then reelected.

Will the Republicans be able to win in 2016 or 2020? Until there is a change of leadership in the Republican party, I think they have no chance of winning the white house in the near future.

There are too many special interest groups who vote their interest, rather then voting for the best interest of the nation. The democratic party has appealed to those groups to win their vote.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

If we had a candidate that said he was going to end free trade and put people back to work, the career welfare group would be scared to death. There is no way people drawing welfare are going to vote to end those benefits.

The same thing goes for illegal immigration, gays,,,, and all other special interest groups who have formed voting blocs.

The republicans stance on protecting the rich from higher taxes have alienated the middle class.

The republicans stance on immigration, abortion and gay rights have alienated the party from those voting blocs.

The republican party has become the party of old rich white men. Its just a matter of time before they die and are replaced.

The nation is screwed, and I mean royally screwed.

National Debt

The government is so far into debt, there is no way future generations can pay off the debt. As of the posting of this article the US Government is $16.4 trillion in debt. With credit card debt and student loan debt, we owe more like $58 trillion.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

We are throwing millions of dollars to illegal immigrants. Between 2009 and 2011 we spent around $91 million on health care for illegal immigrants.

Social Security disability is expected to go bankrupt by 2016.

Congress is looking for ways to allow millions of illegal immigrants to become citizens.




Something That Will Shut Those Gun Hating Liberals Up

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 23, 2013 0 Comments

Do you know what gun owners need? This will shut those gun hating liberals up for good.

What we need is an armed protest at the capital of all 50 states, including Washington D.C.

WASR-10 AK-47Washington D.C. has prohibited 30 round magazines, so everyone should bring their AR-15s and AK-47s loaded with 30 round magazines. Then dare the Washington D.C. police to arrest 10,000+ armed protestors.

Gun owners are not those sissy occupy wall street protestors, free men carry guns, gun owners carry guns.

There are times when free men should talk, there are times when free men should vote, and then there are times when free men should stand up and say “hell no.”

We are getting close to the “hell no” phase.

Gun owners should step up with a show of force. The government will not take our guns away, nor shall our rights be “restricted.”




Dianne Feinstein Obama And Gun Control

Posted by Kevin Felts On January 8, 2013 0 Comments

Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalistThere has been a lot of talk from Dianne Feinstein and obama about gun control. My honest opinion on the matter, neither of them want the laws they are suggesting.

The only reason Dianne Feinstein and obama are talking about gun control, is to make the liberals happy, and to say they did “something” after the Aurora Colorado and Sandy Hook shootings.

Why would Dianne Feinstein and Obama be faking the call for gun control?

Because the proposed laws are too radical.

Proposed Gun Tax

Poll taxes were struck down. The government can not charge a fee or tax on a right. There is no fee to go to church, there is no fee or tax to vote, there is no special government fee or tax to read a newspaper or watch the evening news.

The gun control act of 1934 set reasonable limits on the ownership of fully automatic weapons. People can still own fully automatic weapons, but thy have to jump through hoops to do so.

Dianne Feinsteins proposal to pay a tax on a right will not stand up in court, and she knows it. But to make the liberal left happy, she has to introduce “something” in the wake of Sandy Hook. This is why Dianne Feinstein keeps getting relected, because she appeals to liberals.




How Low Can The United States Go

Posted by Kevin Felts On December 25, 2012 1 Comment

Its not enough that our factories have been shipped to China, its not enough the Federal Reserve prints money out of thin air,,, but now the federal government is talking about running a gun buy back program.

40 members of Congress sent House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a letter demanding a national gun buyback program.

Democrats argued, “Distributing funding to the states to run buyback programs using prepaid debit cards with a three-month expiration date could provide a jolt to local economies that have stagnated in the wake of the recession and concerns over the fiscal cliff.”

In other words, members of congress hope people are desperate enough that we are willing to sale our guns.

Give it a few more years, and if another liberal democrat gets elected, we can probably kiss our guns goodbye.

If a buyback program does not work, then lets look for an presidential executive order ordering people to hand in their military style firearms.

Executive Order 6102 signed on April 5, 1933, by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt forbid the hording of gold. Executive Order 6102 required all persons to deliver on or before May 1, 1933, all but a small amount of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates owned by them to the Federal Reserve, in exchange for $20.67

If FDR can issue an executive order ordering people to turn in their gold, Obama can do the same thing with military style weapons.

How long until we are nothing more then disarmed peasants?




Dianne Feinstein To Introduce Assault Weapons Ban

Posted by Kevin Felts On December 17, 2012 0 Comments

Obama won California during the election, and now Dianne Feinstein is going to introduce new gun control legislation.

“I’m going to introduce in the Senate, and the same bill will be introduced in the House — a bill to ban assault weapons,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It will ban the sale, the transfer, the importation and the possession, not retroactively, but prospectively,” and ban the sale of clips of more than ten bullets, Feinstein said. “The purpose of this bill is to get… weapons of war off the streets.”

In other words, the many will have to pay for the crimes of the few.




I Wants Me Some Welfare

Posted by Kevin Felts On November 13, 2012 1 Comment

I am sick and tired of supporting people who are too lazy, or too stupid to get a job. Why should I work a 40 hour a week job, pay child support, pay for health care, barely scrap by,,, when people on welfare get all kinds of free stuff.

I want me some free food.

I want me some free housing.

I want someone to help me pay my electric bill.

I want the state to pay for my kids health care.

Right now I pay close a little over $600 a month for health care and temporary disability insurance.

I have been working since 1984, and what do I have to show for it? Not too much. I may not make a lot of money, but shouldn’t I be able to keep a good percentage of what I earn?

Health insurance alone takes a HUGE bite out of my pay check. Instead of helping the working class out, taxes and health care cost continue to skyrocket.

You want to know what the problem is? I was raised with this little thing called a work ethic. A work ethic is this concept that I believe I should support myself and my family.

Up until around the 1990s there was a stigma that went along with being on welfare.

Today, it seems that people are proud to be on welfare. I gots me some welfare and food stamps,,,, and people see no issue with that.

Welfare is a form of stealing. The government takes from those that do, and gives to those that do not. Too lazy to work? No problem, here is your housing voucher, cell phone, and food stamps.




Changing Demographics of the United States

Posted by Kevin Felts On November 12, 2012 0 Comments

On election day, November 6, 2012 it became clear the voting demographics of the United States has changed. White working class, heterosexual, conservative, are no longer the majority. We are still out here, but we no longer hold the majority of the vote.

Instead of white conservatives holding the majority, a collection of special interest groups and liberals hold the majority.

How did obama win the election? Because he won the votes of liberals, blacks, hispanics, and gays. People are no longer unified behind a common idea. Instead, we are divided along racial, religious, ideology and economic lines.

People no longer vote for what is best for the nation, they vote for their special interest groups.

Hispanics

Why did obama win the hispanic vote? Because he talked about giving millions of illegal immigrants amnesty. A family member of an illegal immigrant voted for his cousin to stay in the nation, and that is why obama won the hispanic vote. Lets not worry about the fact that illegals are breaking the law.

If someone wants to become a US citizen, let them start by following our laws.




Why did Romney lose

Posted by Kevin Felts On November 7, 2012 0 Comments

Here we are post-election scratching our heads and wondering what went wrong. Did obama win, or did romney lose? Obama won the election, but did romney help obama win the election?

The truth is, he should have never made it past the primaries. When the republican party elected romney as their candidate, the election was lost.

The more people learned about romney, the less they liked him.

Romney has too much baggage.

1 – The way romney made his money. There is nothing wrong with making money, it was “how” romney made his money that working class people disagree with.

Romney did not create anything. His investment firms bought, striped and then resold. That is not what made America great.

You not know what made America great? We built stuff. People like Henry Ford, people that created a product that people wanted.

What jobs did romney create, what factories did he have built? All I heard about was him and his investment firms sending jobs to china.
