From the Desk of John Rourke – July 20th, 2017


Thoughts on Emergency Funds: In modern society today there is a large percentile of the population that live paycheck to paycheck. I’ve been there and to put it simply it sucks.

It doesn’t take an EMP or economic collapse to have a personal SHTF. Job loss, health issues, and legal troubles can result in personal SHTF conditions with all of the stress and emotional swings that a typical SHTF may confront you with.

Having a decent emergency fund will help absorb unexpected and unfortunate events. Can’t afford to put back money to build an emergency fund? How often are non-needed items purchased where that money could really be put to the side?

I’ll admit I am as guilty as the next person in not prioritizing correctly at times.

We’ve discussed the violent tendencies of Antifa and the level of “threat” they and other more radical members of the Left provide. I found myself in the minority as I predict a higher level than most others. That’s OK. What I am seeing is a dedicated effort by some who run in the Antifa circles to truly take training seriously. Of course, their numbers are tiny compared to the many efficient fighters on the right.

Understand I promote no violence and wish for even less. I just have a vision for what the future holds.
