Sick as a dog

I've been as sick as a dog for a few weeks with some kind of death stuff going on inside my head.  Wife and son down with it as well.  lasts longer for me since I cought the diabetes a few years ago(while in fighting trim I must add).  I get a little sick and my sugars shoot north of 500 regardless of what I eat or not or how much insulin I take, get really sick and it's a likey dirt nap. Scares the crap out of me.  It makes my preps really about my wife and kids, and getting them through without me as I'd only be good for a year at most post TEOTWAWKI,  with about half of the year sucking bad and being burdensome.  I pray on this, when I'm not to mad. My wife however lives on a big pink fluffy cloud of denial about this.  Scared shitless.

Circled the Drain

I would like to elaborate on my thoughts and  feelings about the formerly Grand Old Party.  I stated that the Republican party has been co-opted by progressives. With the exception of Ronald Reagan this is mostly true with few exceptions. The GOP did not want Ronald Reagan in the White House or in party leadership. They fought against him in '76 and in '80. They imposed George H. W. Bush on him as a means maintaining control. Mr. Reagan clearly was not fond of Mr. Bush and visa versa as their primary campaigns made clear.  To understand this one must look back to the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century and the rise of Progressivism.

As the twentieth century dawned and post civil war there was the growing belief that Washington was the answer for the nations many ills.  President Lincoln used his wartime powers as President to expand the breadth and scope of federal powers and for the first time made the several states a dependent and integrated appendage of the federal government.   A school of thought was developing that encouraged and nurtured that view and sought to provide answers through government regulation and control of the individual.  They worked to advance a view where an elite minority of enlightened thinkers would move humanity foward.  To accomplish this they infiltrated the press and both dominant political parties, but with the GOP has not always been so clear.

I strongly encourage you to look into Theodore Roosevelt to fully understand the reach of progressivism into the Republican party.  

MORE TO COME........... 


After browsing the blogosphere on the intarwebs I found great comfort HERE.  I have been a regular reader of Brigid's "Home on the Range" blog for many moons now but that particular post really crystalized thing for me.  I have accordingly developed a rudimentary plan of action.

  1. I have cut my ties to the Republican party.  I joined when I registered to vote at 18 and was inspired by Reagan.  I remain inspired by Reagan but believe he was an aberation and not the Republican norm.  The more I explore the more I believe the party leadership has been co-opted by progessives.  I'll say that again and louder "THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS BEEN CO-OPTED BY PROGRESSIVES".  They are statists no different from Democrates other than for speed. Think tuortis and the hare.
  2. I spent considerable time pondering the following Jefferson quote: "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others". I believe this is the very essence of what made these united states special.
  3. I joined the Libertarian party.  I believe they more fully, but not perfectly, represent the above quote.  I firmly believe in the constitution.  I firmly beieve the constitution has been ignored and ridiculed by those in power for the last 100 years. I firmly belive those in power now are guilty of treason, all of them.
  4. I will take preparations much more seriously. More so than I "thought" I did prior to Hurricain Sandy.
  5. I will live my life according to Jeffersons principled ideal. I will live morally, with integrity and faith.  
  6. I will take better care of myself so I can take better care of those I love.

Well we Survived Sandy, but not as prepared as I should have been.

Seaside Heights AKA "The Jersey Shore"




I humbly report that Casa Del Simple Man made it through the storm. The eye wall passed less than a mile south of our home. The lowest pressure recorded ever in our hemisphere went through the inlet between northern Atlantic City and southern Brigantine Isle. As an aside, huricane Irene last year swept ashore on the the north end of my fare Island of Brigantine. Our area of the Island made it through with minor damage but no electricity, but a few blocks away the bay met the ocean(see picturre above). The north end had severe damage as did Atlantic City,  Margate, Ventnor, Long Port, Ocean City, Sea Isle City and etc. I'm sure many saw the footage of the roller coaster in the ocean at Sea Side Hights, home of "The Jersey Shore". I hope you will keep those effected in your prayers.

Of course this brings us to prepping.  I thought we were good for several days and likely were. Areas that need improvement are:

  • quality camp stove

  • more green gas cans

  • tub liner for water storage

  • actual emergency candles, store bought smelly ones don't last and exacerbate my wifes asthma

  • I need to have the family more in a preparedness/SHTF mindset, they were NOT ready

  • non electric indoor heat source

  • unfortunately we need to minimize contact with neighbors at these times, they were completely unprepared and leaned heavily on us and mostly my wife. I will happily advise and assist them before hand but must close my door WTSHTF

  • I read many of your blogs and try to put into practice your suggestions. My wife and I agreed to go over everything we need so we are on the same page. I think this was a true "Eye Opener" for Mrs. Simple Man

Dear occupant of 1600 Pennsylvannia Avenue

We the people will decide whom the "bull-shiter" is.  That happens on November 6th.  That is all, I now return you to your bread and circuses.

Jeep moving to communist China!!!!! WTF

Jeep, The most iconic American Vehicle on the planet is in serious negotiations with a communist chinese company to move production of ALL Jeeps to communist China. If you recall Jeep is owned by Chrysler who in turn is owned by Fiat. Chrysler and thus Fiat, a foreign company, recieved billions of dollars in bailout money from .gov. All of that money we borrowed from the communist regime in China and we the taxpayers are on the hook for every penny of it.  Now the  Washington times and detail this stunning turn of event.  Jeep may be moving ALL production to China. These are soon to be formerly American jobs. How many of you will by a Jeep after this with "Made in China" stamped on it.  This very brand fought against Fascism, Communism and Totalitarianism.  Perhaps this is how our debts to China are going to be repaid, in american industries, technology and perhaps land

Now is when the rubber meets the road. Remember what America represents, remember the America of our youth with limitless possibilities. Never forget our fathers, uncles, grandfathers and sons and daughters who made that America possible. Never forget that their sacrifices made us possible. Lastly think about the country we will leave to our children and posterity. Stay safe, stay vigilant and may God bless us all.

"Damn that's some good sh!t"

Tonight is the night that I pray we can put the last for years to bed.  I have no doubt that Mitt will be the better man tonight, as he is a better man than the Kenyan born bastard Indonesian citizen interloper Barry Soetoro of the CHOOM gang. Maybe he can get back to taking roof hits sooner rather than later. Keep the faith folks.  After the debate, when you get back to blogging stop by Midwest Rebels place and give him a read, you'll be glad you did.  Stay safe, stay vigilant and may God bless.

Range day with the VEPR

Such a beautiful clear fall day, gotta love Indian Summer.  I couldn't pass on going to the range, plus I promised a report. So I tore into a spam can and took out four packets of ammo, 120 rounds, I wish i brought more. This baby shoots like butter. This is my new slobbering love affair, sorry Mrs. Simple Man.  All shots made with iron sights at 100 yards.

Brass from my first shot.

I used only iron sights at 100 yards with no gun rest, but seated at a bench. And no,  I didn't use the car as a target stand, just a photo stand. I used an old backer but i am sure i own a lot of the low left holes.

Zombie cranial ventilation at 100 yards with only irons

Friday Gun Porn

Rome had Nero

Antiquity brought us the story of Nero playing a fiddle while Rome burned.  America just gave posterity Biden laughing as America burns

I'm calming down a bit and more to follow

I am calming down and will be posting more very soon...  I plan on getting into my views of the "Wholly Trinity" by which I mean "LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of HAPPINESS." I may also upload some unboxing pix of a new boom stick that is sitting at my FFL but I am a believer in OPSEC and will probably never publish what i have again and talk more about what I like.

Dear Barry Sotero,
How is that wonderful and democratic  "arab spring" working out for you.
It looks like the families of our embassy staff just got some "CHANGE"'
After years of sanctions Libya renounced terrorism, gave up its nuclear and biological weapons program, just like we asked.  Then you and your progressive cronies assisted the islamists in overthrowing the secular government.  Good job, may God have mercy on America, you can rot in your Kenyan muslim hell.

Never Forget

I will never forget.  I will never forgive.  I will never surrender.  By God as long as I can twitch a finger I will never stop being a free American.

PS  Rest in peace Robert Macilvane, I never knew you but worked with and have great respect for your Dad, may there be a special place in hell for the 19 that took you.
