Republican’s will once again attempt to repeal and replace ObamaCare. The vote is reported to take place today. Democrat leadership is stating that should the bill pass – millions will lose health insurance, children will die, and grandma will get run over by a reindeer.

I have finally figured out how we will all know when the fit hits the shan: I go fill out an official government document and when choosing gender the choices are MALE, FEMALE, or “non-binary, intersex, transsexual, genderfluid aardvark”.

No offense to all aardvarks out there.

From the “Holy Crap!!!!” files: A man from Argentina spent $25,000 to transform himself into a real like elf. I can’t believe I just typed that but yes – it is true. If you want to see a picture of this “trans-species” piece of work click HERE.

FYI – Amazon has Mechanix FastFit gloves for only $10.99 with free shipping on orders over $35 or to Prime Members. I use these when shooting though often only have one on my right hand when shooting C-Clamp.

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!

Today’s Freebies



NOTE: If you see a free preparedness eBook that you’re interested in get it now. Prices change often and there is no way to tell how long the book will remain free. Before purchasing a free Kindle book on Amazon make certain the book is still free by making sure the price is $0.00. If it lists a price or says “read for free” or has a price for prime members the book is not free anymore.
