SO TRUE !

conservative vs. liberal
Got this in an email the other day; thought it was pretty much to the point:

Conservative/Liberal

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn’t buy one. If a liberal doesn't like guns, then he thinks no one should have one.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants to ban all meat products for everyone.

If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy. A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly enjoys his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he loudly demands legislated respect.

If a black man or Hispanic is conservative, he sees himself as independently successful. His liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. A liberal demands that those he doesn’t like be shut down.

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that his neighbors pay for his.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed. If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.

If a conservative reads this, he will forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A liberal will delete it because he is "offended".

Multi purpose functions

The other day I went to the old Wally world(Wal-Mart) and bought some Epsom Salts.....I was amazed by all the different purposes of this product . It goes back a long time and it's kind of like vinegar. It can be used in ways that really surprised me. On the bag it can be used for soaking sprains and a couple of other things. It can be used for gardening, and also a laxative. Wow ! I guess as a prepper and a survivalist this is one thing we should all have on hand. I have also read some interesting things about Hydrogen peroxide. I guess when things get really bad for us, we need to go back to the basics. I have so many books on herbal medicine and plants and their different uses. This has always been a subject of interest to me. Get back to what the Indians used and the old timers used. I was watching a show on discovery the other day about the medicine men in the jungles of amazon and the way they fought off infection and healed with the plants and resources that were available to them. I would think that it would be of great value to have books on hand so that if we are in a survival situation we have a back up. Well until my next thought Have a great day and keep on prepping.

VERY INTERESTING

The other continent
Laura Rose

(From DivineCaroline.com) - When I heard about the "Plastic Continent" in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I have to admit that I thought it was just an urban myth or an overreaction by some extreme activists.

Much to my dismay, what I found by searching the Internet was that it was more of an understatement than an exaggeration. There it was "3.5 million tons of trash, 80 percent of it plastic" a mass twice the size of Texas. Yes, TEXAS!

At a cost of billions of dollars to clean up the mess, no country wants to take responsibility for it, and so it has continued to grow at a rate of tenfold per decade since 1950.

Sea turtles mistake plastic sandwich bags for jellyfish, and birds feed their young bottle caps and other plastic chards, unknowingly filling their stomachs to the point that they die of starvation. Beaches once scattered with drift wood and seashells are increasingly covered in plastic debris.

If you live in San Francisco, you now know why the Board of Supervisors, led by Ross Mirkarimi, outlawed the use of plastic bags in grocery stores and other retail outlets. Every city needs to follow their example and make this a priority.

Right now, there doesn't seem to be much that we can do about the garbage dump that churns between San Francisco and Hawaii, but we can do our part to keep it from growing.

1) Tell everyone you know about the Plastic Continent. The first step in solving any problem is awareness.

2) Use reusable shopping totes.

3) Get rid of the plastic sandwich bags in your child's lunch box, or at least reduce the number you use. Replace them with reusable containers or, at a minimum, rinse them and use again.

4) Buy a stainless water bottle. Make it a policy among friends and organizations to bring stainless bottles to soccer games and other sporting events and outings.

5) Write to your local, state, and national political leaders. Encourage them to outlaw the use of plastic bags. Know that lobbyists for plastic manufacturers are very influential; we need to influence with our letters and our votes.

6) Watch what you consume. Our lifestyle of constant consumerism and instant gratification hasn't just hurt our wallets, it's hurt our environment.

Gardening

Alrighty then....I guess I have talked enough politics for now. I'll get back to what I love to do. Gardening.........This year we started a garden in a new location. We have definitely picked some produce off of what was planted. Now, the summer heat has taken a toll on the veggies. I think we actually had a drought going on. I was feeling wilty from the heat, so I can imagine how the plants felt. LOL ! I have already gotten some new strategies on what to plant , where to plant it and I am making plans for the fall gardens. I've been visiting the feed stores to see what is coming in stock for the fall season. I am definitely ready for cooler weather to come so that I can get to some serious gardening.
I was talking with a neighbor, whom is a great survivalist, we are having a problem with rodents eating our tomatoes and cantaloupes. I was thinking maybe we could use a diluted pepper sauce and spray it on the plants and maybe a little cayenne pepper. If anybody has an idea it would be much appreciated. The problem is that we have the garden fenced off, so the dogs can't deter the little pesky rodents to not come in our garden. The other downside is that I have one puppy who is still going through her tearing up stage. My little puppy Jazzy is great at catching alot of critters. But she is also great at tearing up some stuff too. Well, I need to go pull up some half dead veggie plants....Until next time...Lez Bon Temps Roule Preppers !

MY USA

I am new to Blogging, so please bear with me. I can honestly say that I was never into politics. With all of the new information out there, about what our new president is doing, has made all of that change. I guess it started with the issue on trying to stop Americans from having gardens, and with these tough times, and people loosing jobs, and stock market crashes I have seen more and more people growing their own food. Gardening has always been a hobby and somewhat therapeutic.Now it is a necessity! So for this to be an issue for our government, is why I am paying attention . Now with this health care issue. I have honestly had enough. I am now writing to politicians and elected officials. I am standing up for my United States of America. I am not going to lay down and let Mr. President Obama, shove this crow down my throat or my families. I mean, what is it going to be like for our grandchildren if we don't do something now. Rhino and I have been talking alot about all of the events taking place and we want to change the outcome and have a voice, where it is needed. Once we went to a protest, because the NAACP or the ACLU, wanted to have a picture of Jesus taking down out of the local courthouse. They said it was offending them. To them I say enough is enough! The United States of America was founded on GOD....In GOD We Trust! They are trying to take God out of everything. That's not acceptable ! I have so much to say but I guess this is good for starters. I am standing up for my country and the people who are giving up the lives, and their families, to defend what OBAMA and those dam democrats. are trying to take away from us. I tell Rhino all the time that the NWO might have taken over other countries but Americans aren't going to stand for it. The NWO is going to have on hell of a fight on their hands. I am hearing alot more fellow Americans talking about what is going on, more now, than ever before. I didn't vote for OBAMA ! I saw a church sign the other day, and it read ,"At the end of the word American is ICAN!" I can make a difference! We all can..... Well I guess that's all for now ..........

THE HURRICANE KATRINA I SURVIVED

The effects of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans were shattering and long-lasting. As the center of Katrina passed east of New Orleans on August 29, 2005, winds downtown were in the Category 3 range with frequent intense gusts and tidal surge. Though the most severe portion of Katrina missed the city, hitting nearby St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes, the storm surge caused more than 50 breaches in drainage canal levees and also in navigational canal levees and precipitated the worst engineering disaster in the history of the United States.[1]

By August 31, 2005, eighty percent of New Orleans was flooded, with some parts under 15 feet (4.5 m) of water. Most of the city's levees designed and built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers broke somewhere, including the 17th Street Canal levee, the Industrial Canal levee, and the London Avenue Canal floodwall. These breaches were responsible for most of the flooding, according to a June 2007 report by the American Society of Civil Engineers.[2]Oil refining stopped so the price of petrol increased all over the world.

Ninety percent of the residents of southeast Louisiana were evacuated in the most successful evacuation of a major urban area in the nation's history. Despite this, many remained (mainly the elderly and poor). The Louisiana Superdome was used as a designated "refuge of last resort" for those who remained in the city. The city flooded due primarily to the failure of the federally built levee system. Many who remained in their homes had to swim for their lives, wade through deep water, or remain trapped in their attics or on their rooftops.

The disaster had major implications for a large segment of the population, economy, and politics of the entire United States. It has prompted a Congressional review of the Corps of Engineers and the near total failure of the federally built flood protection system which experts agree should have protected the city's inhabitants from Katrina's surge. Katrina has also stimulated significant research in the academic community into urban planning, real estate finance, and economic issues in the wake of a natural disaster.[3]
