The women – Leslie Roy, 52, and Lee Marie Wright, 56 – survived on Girl Scout cookies while stuck in their snow-crippled SUV. A pilot noticed a reflection off the Ford Explorer and landed the police helicopter on shore, ending the women’s unexpected wilderness adventure.

*** end quote ***

Tough world out there. Especially when you’re unprepared.

It’s not like you don’t have room in an SUV for a “Bug Out”, “Get Home”, or “Holy Hell What’s Happening” bag.

Fire making materials, survival blankets, food and water seem obvious.

And people think an SUV is a ATV.

At least they were smart enough to stay with the SUV!

Dumb that they didn’t start burning the spare after a week?

Recently when I was driving from Manchester NH to Keene NH, I found large stretches with no cell phone service. So you can’t depend upon that.

Most important is a survival mindset. 

If you’re depending upon a road being plowed, then you better do some research.

When in Vegas and we’d go for a ride, there were always two gallons of water in the rental car. And we were NOT going of the beaten track. But it’s dry and hot there.

And, finally, you always have to leave a route with your “canary”. That is someone who knows where you are, where you’re going, and when you’ll check back in. I acted as a “canary” for someone traveling alone in Japan. (We even had a code word!)

These women were very lucky.

The human being is a fragile “animal” in a dangerous world.

TINFOILHAT: OKC Bombing story starts to crack open;

Exclusive: Oklahoma City Bombing Breakthrough, Part 1 of 2
April 22, 2015 by Roger Charles

*** begin quote ***

So, were McVeigh, Nichols and Fortier disgruntled domestic terrorists operating on their own? Apparently not, according to one long-time FBI Confidential Informant (CI).

Shortly after the April 19, 1995, bombing, John Matthews, a CI targeting right wing and neo-Nazi groups (but expressly forbidden to target OKBOMB-related information), reported to his FBI handler information relevant to McVeigh. Matthews recounted how, a few years before the Oklahoma City attack, he had attended a weekend training session in Austin, Texas, for a suspect paramilitary group. While at this meeting, Matthews met two ex-soldiers, introduced as “Tim” and “Andy.”

In the post-bombing media deluge, Matthews realized that “Tim” was Timothy McVeigh, When Matthews related his information about “Tim” and “Andy the German” to Don Jarrett of Phoenix, his FBI handler, Jarrett responded, “We know, John. Don’t worry about it. We got it covered.”

*** end quote ***

So McVeigh was executed.

The trial judge didn’t order DOJ to explain the FBI and ATF involvement.

It’s probably that this was either bungled or prompted.

Argh!

Just once, I’d like to get the straight truth about anything.

“Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.” Colonel Jessep in A Few Good Men played by Jack Nicholson

“We, The Sheeple” are ENTITLED to the truth.

RANT: Drug addiction is a MEDICAL problem

Advisory: Police / Health Officials Warn of Spike in Overdoses Related to Synthetic Marijuana

Dear Nixle User,

Police and Health Officials Warn of Spike in Synthetic Marijuana Overdose Cases

The New Jersey Poison Information and Education System is issuing an alert for a “Street Drug” causing life-threatening reactions. The agency along with state health officials are warning people not to use products sold as synthetic marijuana (often called spice, k2, etc.). In the past week, there have been approximately 30 people admitted to hospitals in NJ and many more in NY suffering the consequences of using these products. As of now, no one really knows what is in these substances. However, what is known is that people are getting very sick from it; severe agitation, seizures, renal failure, and other life-threatening reactions are being reported.

On Tuesday South Brunswick Police and EMS responded to a township home where a 22 year old female was convulsing and throwing up. Officers found her lying on the ground shaking uncontrollably. Friends indicated that the woman had been smoking synthetic marijuana. Monmouth Junction First Aid Squad transported the woman to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for treatment.

The large increase in overdose cases in New Jersey mirrors recent activity in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania where more than 39 cases have been reported in the past week. Lehigh County officials indicate that some of the patients had various degrees of intoxication that resulted in at least one being intubated. In some cases patients have shown aggressive behavior toward police officers and emergency medical services personnel.

Health officials want parents and community members to be aware of the dangers of these substances. For more information please contact a poison expert at 800-222-1222.

When was the last time you heard something like this in the non-illegal drug marketplace?

Excedrine poisoning, maybe.

And the makes immediately resigned the packaging to be tamper proof.

The “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” ENSURES that we will suffer these types of episodes REGULARLY.

Maybe that’s what the Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats want!

Drugs are bad. We need Mommie and Daddie Gooferment to protect us.

Argh!

Drug addiction is a MEDICAL; not legal problem.

Repeal the drug laws. (How did they ever get passed in the first place with our experience with Prohibition!)

Let WalMart, Walgreens, RiteAid, and CVS dispense “good” “illegal” drugs — that are clean and of a know quantity and quality.

Just like at the casinos, tell folks where to go to get help if they have a problem.

(Why is that “good enough” for problem gamblers and problem drinkers, but not for some drug abusers?)

Argh!

LIBERTY: War comes to the USA

Battlefield America: The War on the American People
By John W. Whitehead
April 22, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Noam Chomsky summed it up when he said that Washington regards any information that does not repeat Washington’s propaganda to be intolerable.

Washington’s assault on truth as a threat helps to make sense of the gigantic National Security Agency spy system exposed by William Binney and Edward Snowden. One of the purposes of the spy network is to identify all “dissidents” who challenge Big Brother’s “Truth.”

*** and ***

Trust me, if it looks like a battlefield (armored tanks on the streets, militarized police in metro stations, surveillance cameras everywhere), sounds like a battlefield (SWAT team raids nightly, sound cannons to break up large assemblies of citizens), and acts like a battlefield (police shooting first and asking questions later, intimidation tactics, and involuntary detentions), it’s a battlefield.

Indeed, what happened in Ocala, Florida, is a good metaphor for what’s happening across the country: Sheriff’s deputies, dressed in special ops uniforms and riding in an armored tank on a public road, pulled a 23-year-old man over and issued a warning violation to him after he gave them the finger. The man, Lucas Jewell, defended his actions as a free speech expression of his distaste for militarized police.

*** end quote ***

Clearly, the “Rubicon” has been crossed.

When does “We, The Sheeple” resist? If resistance is possible.

It has to be peaceful resolute non-violence in the tradition of Gandhi and MLK.

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

In this case, it’s 320 million “sheeple” and several million politicians and bureaucrats. 

But the answer is the same — withdraw your consent, put sand in the machinery of Gooferment, and just say no!

ECONOMICS: Forget gay marriage; is marriage over

Why Men Won’t Get Married Anymore
Women complain chaps today won’t settle down. Sorry, ladies, but it’s all your fault, argues a wickedly provocative new book
By Peter Lloyd
Daily Mail
April 21, 2015

*** begin quote ***

When it comes to marriage, men are on strike.

Why? Because the rewards are far less than they used to be, while the cost and dangers it presents are far greater.

‘Ultimately, men know there’s a good chance they’ll lose their friends, their respect, their space, their sex life, their money and — if it all goes wrong — their family,’ says Dr Helen Smith, author of Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood And The American Dream.

‘They don’t want to enter into a legal contract with someone who could effectively take half their savings, pension and property when the honeymoon period is over.

‘Men aren’t wimping out by staying unmarried or being commitment phobes. They’re being smart.’

*** end quote ***

This is a scary trend. That will remake society.

It’s part of the trend that makes the woman rich out of any marriage. 

Palimony was just the first step.

Used be that divorce was a Hollywood thing.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Make the FDA advisory, not dictatorial

Saturday, April 25, 2015

https://downsizedc.org/etp/fda/

Make the FDA advisory, not dictatorial.

All too often the FDA has been demonstrated to be in bed with Big Pharma. I believe the term is “regulatory capture”. It’s time to separate medicine and government!

Government’s proper role is prevent force or fraud on its citizens. Hence, the proper role is left to the courts for redress of damages. When government decides what’s “best” for individuals, that far exceeds it’s proper role.

The easiest way to fix this is to take the FDA out of the approval process completely and let the people decide. Since they will bear the brunt of the decision, I’m sure they will do a good job.

When the FDA delays or blocks, the victims have no choices.

That’s not the American way.
