From the Desk of John Rourke – March 22nd, 2017


I listened to Judge Gorsuch yesterday. Impressive. Sounds like an extremely intelligent and honorable man. The bias statements from some on the Left are disgusting. Pure politics with no consideration of what is best for the country.

A lot of preparedness minded folks are turning to Pinterest. I’ve never been big on Pinterest and really looked at it as something for women to go share recipes and craft ideas. Excuse the sexism but it is what it is. Pinterest has changed a lot over the last couple years. There is some really cool stuff so I highly recommend you check it out if you haven’t.

There are “Pins” of all kinds from firearms, to hunting, fishing, and of course preparedness. Here at, we’ve set up a Pinterest account. It can be accessed HERE.  Still working on it and setting everything up.

Buddy of mine made an Altoid tin candle. Two wicks were installed. Pretty cool. Something so simple could provide quite a relief should the lights go out.

There are many reasons why so many love their Kindle and Amazon Fire tablets. One huge advantage is you could literally go years without every buying a book to read as there are tons of free eBooks available. Don’t have a Kindle or Fire? No problem. There are apps that can be installed on most any cell phone or computer for free. No excuses!
