From the Desk of John Rourke – December 15th, 2017


“Serenity now! Serenity now!”

◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊

People over complicate and over analyze survival and preparedness all the time.

Someone says they prefer “this” gun and they are immediately attacked about how they are wrong. Someone likes WISE foods for food storage – yup, they are idiotic because some website said WISE isn’t as good as Brand X. Have “this” knife in your bug out bag? Hell, you might as well not even have a bug out bag.

Everyone needs to make their own decisions and evaluate their own situations.

Discussion and exchanging ideas is fine. Often it isn’t what is said but how it’s said.

Paul Ryan is set to step aside. This is a fantastic opportunity. I just hope it is taken advantage of and the right person is put in his place.

I can remember as a kid I would rub Vick’s under my nose and on my chest when I was sick. I grew to love that smell. I also remember Baby Apririn. Loved the taste of those things.
