The Invasive Species Order was signed as an Executive Order in 1999 by then President Clinton. The recent muscle behind the Order has been exercised by the Department of Natural Resources far more frequently under the current administration. While in affect an Executive Order designed to squelch the potential spread of swine flu, mad cow disease and the avian (bird flu) virus - in recent years the broadened focus of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has gone into small private farms and co-ops to impose the Invasive Species Order (INS) upon civilians in a SWAT raid fashion. One of [...]
In a new effort to pressure Iran over it's nuclear program, the European Union has imposed sanctions on Iranian Oil. There is some 'wiggle room' for negotiation, on the sanctions however if Iran were to suspend it's atomic activity. Does the actions of those 'across the pond' affect those in the USA and around the world? I believe they will affect us and sooner as well as later. Some events that I see happening are as follows: Immidiately the west will have issues with crude oil prices which will... Raise the price of gas at the pumps An already sluggish [...]
Without getting overly spiritual and heading down the path of in Whom our security should lie and Who knows the end of the book while we're still acting out the chapters here on earth...the topic of "security" has become a volatile one at best here in the tangible world. Most especially it is a volatile topic in America. To top off the state of affairs that plague America the past few years - many of us have suffered a great sense of the lack of Security, even while government tries to reach in and do more - we are less [...]
Last Saturday, November 5ht on Your Preparation Station I just had to get a few things out in the open about the preparedness movement! Some things have been irking me and it was just time for this hostess to SOAP BOX a tad! Seriously, of course I have concerns with society, but my concerns with the preparedness movement are that signs are beginning to show that there are some folks in the movement that are acting out of motives that are not helpful TO the movement. I'm concerned with how we as preppers are labeled and what we might be [...]
Author: Donna Miller There is a great difference that rearranging that subject line above would make. It could read: "To get fear under control, get prepared." However, that is not exactly how I feel the true prepared lifestyle actually works. The fact is that most of us have never chosen wisely reacting out of fear. Chaos, emergencies, and emotional instability often force us into feeling that we have to make decisions immediately and often on only partial information and even worse, on little if no faith. Fear can be a motivator, but it can also be a jailer or a [...]
In the realm of preparedness there is a wide range of philosophies and along with those come a wide range of acronyms. If you are new to the preparedness movement or you've been doing this a while and are now slapped in the face with a conglomerate of capitol letters being jumbled together and want to make sense of things - I want to start with a short acronym list we are finding in much of the material now arising on the topic of preparedness: WROL - Without Rule Of Law. TEOTWAWKI - The End Of The World As [...]
Ron Paul is up in arms about this issue, as I believe we all should be. The FDA has been telling us what we can eat and drink for far too long, and now they continue to push into our refrigerators limiting grass-fed cow's milk just because it has not had been pasteurized (which also kills off the beneficial digestive enzymes ). How is it that we have a 'free' society that has a governmental agency dictating what we cannot drink? Foods with additives are approved, but not a natural product such as raw milk. Foods that are genetically modified, [...]
