A Bunch Of Interesting Links

weblinks 300x197 A Bunch Of Interesting LinksSo I tend to accumulate interesting links over time, and I think I’ll share some of them from time to time here.  So with varying amounts of comment, here’s some of the things that have caught my eye over the last week or so:

This article talks about Justice Kagan’s first vote as a Supreme Court Justice.  In this case she decided to vote against an execution because the lethal injection drug used has not been shown to not cause long term damage.  Say What?  Last time I checked we used the drug as part of an execution.  Who cares what the long term effects are?

Mark Steyn has a series that he’s running this week about some of the key issues in this year’s election.  He’s posted the first three in the series, and I enjoyed them.  Part three was … enlightening!  Check them out and read the rest of the series!  Part One, Part Two, Part Three

John Galt over at posted a warning on his blog yesterday about post election possibilities.  Read it, think about it, and take appropriate action.  If you don’t listen to John’s radio show ‘The Voice of Galt’ on The Watchmen, you should.  He’s got good stuff, and he’s entertaining as well.  He’s on the air from 6-8pm Eastern Time Monday through Friday.  That time isn’t convenient for me, so I download the recorded show every night and listen to it on my way to work.  I highly recommend taking the time to listen to his show.  More details are available on his blog.

CBS News posted an article called “99 Weeks: When Unemployment Benefits Run Out” that is full of all sorts of interesting things.  People looking for work for two years and not finding anything at all.  They also come up with a ‘real unemployment’ number that includes the underemployed of 17%, which I still think is a bit lower than it actually is.

Rourke over at Modern Survival Online is giving away a brand new Jericho Season I DVD Set.  Go check out the post and enter the contest if you are interested!  I’ve seen the show a couple times all the way through and it’s pretty entertaining and provides good food for thought, even if parts of it are pretty … unrealistic!

Well, that’s enough for now!  Hope you enjoy these!

How To Build A Small Cabin – The Planning Process

Well, one of the things we worked on this year was building a small cabin, really just a bunk house, for some of our kids to sleep in. Right now we have something that is affectionately called ‘Hiawatha Village’ … A bunch of tents, one for each of the older children, set up in aContinue Reading

A Simple Life

A Simple Life

I read this post on living a simple life tonight, and simply had to pass it on.  I’m not going to comment on it, but simply send you over to read it.

In my last part I talked about planning for the rebuilding process after a major SHTF type event.  And I promised a few good ideas to get your creative juices flowing, so here are a few ideas and tips toContinue Reading

After The Dust Settles … What Do We Do Now?

(Rudy’s Note:  This is a guest post from a reader named Kate Kelley.  Enjoy it!) Preparing can be a very daunting thing to consider.  Most of us are in agreement that there is some sort of “event” in the future that will disrupt life the way we know it, potentially forever.  We are preparing toContinue Reading

An Evil And Twisted Interpretation Of The First Amendment

I get seriously ticked off when I think about the dramatic difference between what our Founders intended with the Constitution and Bill of Rights vs what the Powers That Be consider them to mean. It baffles me that people can take simple, straight forward language, and twist it into whatever they want it to mean. Continue Reading

Interview With Karl Denninger

Interview With Karl Denninger

Last week I interviewed Karl Denninger from for about 45 minutes.  We covered some interesting stuff about the current economic situation, including the ‘Foreclosure-Gate’ coverups, as well as what we can do to prepare yourselves for financial and economic disaster. Check it out and let me know what you think!  I’ve got a numberContinue Reading

Are You Ready For Austerity Riots?

Nobody expects it to happen here.  We go about our day to day lives expecting nothing much to change.  Yet beneath the calm and normal exterior of your average American existence lies something completely unexpected. The veneer of civilization is razor thin.  And most people do not understand just how quickly things can devolve intoContinue Reading

What Is The Difference Between Bleached and Unbleached Flour?

So my beloved wife has been doing quite a bit of baking lately, and one thing I didn’t understand was the difference between bleached and unbleached flour. At the surface level, it’s reasonably easy to see a difference.  Bleached flour is whiter and finer.  This is because it has bleaching agents added to it. AllContinue Reading

The Silent Tyranny Of Government Largess

You’ll have to excuse me in this post, because I’m going to doom and gloom a bit.  In the past I’ve tried to stay away from current events, but like I said when I returned from my hiatus, that’s all changed now. The fact of the matter is that I have less and less confidenceContinue Reading
