4. Water purification and storage. Don’t get caught without some water with you and a means to purify more. A simple pot can do for boiling, and water purification filters can make river and lake water drinkable. I suggest you have a few bottles and at least one method to purify more H20.

*** end quote ***

You have to have water. No doubt about that!

If you’re going to be stupid, then the wilderness will kill you.

And, you have to rotate your bottled water. It can evaporate in the sealed bottle cause the container to fail. Water in your trunk is a disaster weather is flood or a case of water that you store there.

RANT: GSA’s 10% occupancy rate?

EPA Spends $92 Million on Office Furniture
Jason Stapleton –  Sep 25, 2015

*** begin quote ***

If you’re thinking, “That must be some nice furniture!” you’re absolutely right. The EPA ended up spending an average of $6,000 per employee buying some of the most expensive furniture in America.

*** end quote ***

More shocking was the assertion that the inventory of Government Services Administration (GSA) leases shows that there is a 10% occupancy rate.

The podcast states that the GSA has an inventory of 8,000 buildings. With a 10% rate, that means that they only need 800?

Argh!

Any place I ever worked that occupancy rate was between 80 and 120%. 

With teleworking, even less space is needed.

Argh!

The Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And this is an example of it.

RANT: All is not well with the “refugee” influx

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3249667/Germany-state-SIEGE-Merkel-cheered-opened-floodgates-migrants-gangs-men-roaming-streets-young-German-women-told-cover-mood-s-changing.html

Germany in a state of SIEGE: Merkel was cheered when she opened the floodgates to migrants. Now, with gangs of men roaming the streets and young German women being told to cover up, the mood’s changing 

  • Thousands of economic migrants are posing as refugees to reach Europe
  • David Cameron said this week that Europe must said failed asylum claimants back to their countries
  • Demands for Germany’s ‘open doors and windows’ policy to be scrapped
  • Women said rape and child abuse were rife in Giessen’s refugee camp

Meanwhile, the migrants keep arriving. Many have deliberately thrown away their passports on their journey through Europe, so they can pretend to be Syrian refugees rather than economic migrants.

The authorities, now being urged by both the EU and Germany’s leaders to return those who aren’t genuine, are completely overwhelmed.

At Freilassing, on the border with Austria, I see hundreds of migrants waiting in teeming rain to reach Mrs Merkel’s promised land. Wrapped in see-through charity macs, they queue excitedly for soup. Most have travelled for weeks, from Turkey by boat to Greece, then via Macedonia, Serbia and Croatia to Austria.

‘We are nearly there,’ says Arun Ari, 27, grinning. He comes from the Syrian town of Kobane, where Kurdish fighters have been battling Islamic State for two years.
He seems a deserving refugee among so many who are not, yet won’t show me his identity papers.

Deserving or not, he faces a tough future. Arun will be processed in one of the camps set up all over Germany in former military bases, school gymnasiums, sports halls, even a former monastery. Yet, just like him, almost every male migrant I meet is optimistic.

And, if this is happening in Germany, then it must be happening here.

These communities show no signs of “assimilation”.

Wonder where it all ends.

Strife and mayhem?

GUNS: San Fran preempts the RKBA

SECOND AMENDMENT
Surrender: San Fran’s iconic, last gun shop to close over new regulations
By Hollie McKay
Published September 24, 2015
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

The proposed new city regulations, which could only be aimed at High Bridge Arms, would have required the shop to take and preserve video of all transactions and turn customers’ personal data over to police on a weekly basis. General Manager Steven Alcairo said the shop’s owners finally threw in the towel after years of what they consider being unfairly targeted with burdensome rules and regulations. Past regulations have required the shop to bar ads and displays from its windows and install cameras and barriers around its exterior. The shop has 17 cameras as it is, and turns video over to police on request, he said.

*** end quote ***

Isn’t this a de facto obliteration of the Second Amendment?

And if the gang of Gooferment politicians and bureaucrats, calling themselves the “City of San Francisco”  gets away with it, then why not all of California!

Argh!

Wake up “We, The Sheeple”!

TINFOILHAT: “Conspiracy” allows the elite to dismiss legitimate questions

10 Disturbing Facts Most Americans Are Too Fearful to Face
Humans Are Free

7. “Conspiracy” doesn’t mean what you think it does

Throughout the history of humanity people do things by planning it out, this simple act or organizing is considered bizarre, unlikely and improbable by a generation of brainwashed people controlled by one hypnotic word: “conspiracy“!

That’s right. You may be reading this and thinking this refers to you. The simple phrase “conspiracy” or “conspiracy theory” has singlehandedly mind-controlled millions of Americans like no other word or phrase has. Unfortunately there is no way around it.

“Conspiracy” is a substitute word for an otherwise ordinary act of planning or coordinating. Something all people do especially groups like corporations and governments. You MUST plan, organize, or “conspire” to do things. That’s how things get done!

*** end quote ***

I think that where “Conspiracy Theorists” go wrong is that they speculate on the answers.

It’s sufficient to present facts and ask questions. We, since I put me and my tin foil hat in the same camp, don’t have to provide answers. 

As a “Conspiracy Questioner”, I would prefer to layout things in this format: facts and questions. Period.

For one example:

  • JFK was assassinated.
  • If you believe the Warren Report, then how was Oswald able to be the lone gun man with an inferior weapon.

For another example:

  • 9/11 happened.
  • How did the BBC report WTC7’s collapse before it happened?

And, the just stack the questions, line by line.

I think this is a much more powerful way to raise doubts.  Better than saying LBJ did it or the CIA led cabal blew up WTC7.

imho

“Question authority”? What a joke. “We, The Sheeple” have lost their ability to think critically and I blame it on Gooferment Skrules.

In 2013 more than 80 bills were introduced in at least 33 states related to arming teachers or school staff, but only Alabama, Kansas, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas enacted laws affecting public schools, according to a report by the Council of State Governments. In the state of Wisconsin, concealed carry permit holders can request permission to carry from the principal of their local school, and a new law just went into effect this year allowing both off duty and retired LEO’s to carry in schools as well.  The Outdoor Channel’s in-depth documentary Safe Haven hosted by Katie Pavlich was an eye-opening look into just how ineffective gun-free zones really are.

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — attributed to Einstein

So, we have demonstrated evidence that “gun free” zones do NOT work.

Can we try something different?

Argh!

HISTORICAL: RIP Yogi

http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2015/09/23/really-didnt-say-everything-said-very-best-yogisms/?intcmp=hplnws

NEW YORK –  Some of the more widely quoted philosophy of Yogi Berra, the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher who died Tuesday at age 90:
On his approach to at-bats: “You can’t think and hit at the same time.”
On selecting a restaurant: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”
On economics: “A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.”
On the 1973 Mets: “We were overwhelming underdogs.”
On how events sometimes seem to repeat themselves “It’s deja vu all over again!”
On baseball attendance: “If people don’t come to the ballpark, how are you gonna stop them?”
On a slipping batting average: “Slump? I ain’t in no slump. … I just ain’t hitting.”
On travel directions: “When you come to a fork in the road take it.”
On pregame rest: “I usually take a two-hour nap from 1 to 4.”
On battling the shadows in left field at Yankee Stadium: “It gets late early out there.”
On fan mail: “Never answer an anonymous letter.”
On being told he looked cool: “You don’t look so hot yourself.”
On being asked what time it was: “You mean now?”
On being given a day in his honor: “Thank you for making this day necessary.”
On a spring training drill: “Pair off in threes.”
On his approach to playing baseball: “Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical.”
On death: “Always go to other people’s funerals. Otherwise they won’t go to yours.”
On learning: “You can observe a lot by watching.”
On his team’s diminishing pennant chances: “It ain’t over `till it’s over.”
On the fractured syntax attributed to him: “I really didn’t say everything I said.”
