A weed in its simplest terms is an S.O.B plant you can’t seem to get rid of. Your grass is dead and that dang dandelion is still living. But I believe, once you finish reading my article, you may have a change of heart.
I remember a couple of years ago I would come home and see dandelions growing in my front yard. Like most Americans I would think, “These damn things will not go away.” I would pull them and wait until they came around again, then the battle would start all over. Then about a year ago, my fiancé said, “Did you know that you can eat dandelions? You can even make wine out of them.” That was the first time in my life I ever realized that weeds may not be 100% worthless.
In the last year of researching gardening, I have learned more about weeds. I am proud to say I have learned to love them. They are amazingly resilient to their environment. They are used throughout the world for herbal remedies. They are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals.
Hopefully, I have shifted your mind away from weeds being horrible plants so I can now delve into the main reason I wrote this article. This simple, yet powerful idea entered my mind: How could I increase my emergency supply food and keep costs (space) down?
Here you go… Weeds and rice and/or beans very well could be the answer. Weeds grow with very little effort and it is cheap to get the seeds. Rice and beans are hands-down some of the cheapest items to buy in bulk. If you’re a low income family, or just like to try to cut costs, this could be an outstanding way to eat great, nutritious food for cheap. Continue reading
Shelter varies from the place we call home; to the inside of a doorway on a cold raining night. People spend more on their shelter, than others make in a lifetime. When it comes to disasters/emergencies we need to be able to adapt or die. I will walk you through the levels of shelter to help you understand the concept that it is more than meets the eye.
You mind is the first tool you will use in finding/building shelter. How strong is your will to live? How do you deal with cold and hot weather? Do you understand the environment you are in at the time of the situtation? Have you ever watched videos on how to make shelter? Have you made a shelter before?
In the right environment all of this questions could be mean the difference between life and death.
Next, the colthes you wear will be of great importance. How many people went out for a stroll and assumed they would not need anything else. How many of those people died? If your lost and it’s dark, try to find leaves or anything of value you can stick in your shirt. In a pinch it will add extra layers. Continue reading
So why would I write an article on the Magna Carta in today’s age? Why bother, when in our modern time people don’t even know who the vice president is? I do it for one simple reason, because it is important to remember. This document was born from the minds of men who demanded freedom. Once it was introduced and word spread the idea could not be killed. It is the idea, and always the idea that must not be forgotten. The idea that humans have essential rights. We have the right to be our own man or woman. The right to live without the fear from our leaders. The more of us that remember the importance of freedom, the harder it is for dictatorships to thrive. The other reality is that we live on a planet that is very, very violet. There will come a day when we are hit with a supervolcanoe, comet, mega solar flares and pandemic just to name a few. This could rip apart our society, and it is vital we rebuild it with the Spirit of freedom in mind. I hope you enjoy my mini history lesson of the Magna Carta. Continue reading
You witness what the government is doing now a days, and it doesn’t feel right. You hear the words, “that’s unConstitutional to pass this law.” But, you honestly don’t know the specific reason a certain law should not be passed. My friend you are not alone. I would bet good money that most of the congressman, senators, and presidents don’t know their Constitution.
So why should you bother to learn about the documents? The Constitution and the bill of rights are the intellectual soul of the republic of the United States of America. The documents are meant to be a guiding light to become a better nation. I am fully aware of the dark side of America, but I still believe in my heart that they are the greatest documents the world has ever seen. But the POWER of these documents comes from the Citizens of American, not the Politician. If there is no one that remembers them, then there is no one left to defend the Constitution.
Do you know the answer to these questions?
- Are we a democracy?
- Can we tell what are forefathers were thinking when they created the Constitution and bill of rights?
- Is there a difference between a lower case “r” and an upper case ”R”?
- What is allodial title?
- What are the federalist papers?
- Is the Federal Reserve a governmental agency?
Below are some resources that can answer those questions: Continue reading

Q: Why do we have the Writ of Habeas Corpus?
A: “It’s the right of habeas corpus that makes the thought of being illegally imprisoned in a democratic society such a far-off idea. Habeas corpus is a prisoner’s one way to question the legality of his or her imprisonment.” Continue reading
