Why build a bug out bag?
What is the purpose of your bug out bag? What situations or scenarios are tailor made for a bug out bag? There are many different designs or templates for a bug out bag, depending on what you will expect of it in an emergency.
Some people use a bug out bag as a 72 hour bag. If a disaster strikes, and they have to leave their residence for a short period of time due to the emergency, they have the bag ready to go. It will usually only contain enough basic supplies to support life for 72 hours. A way to improvise shelter, food rations for 3 days, and water supply for 3 days, any medicines you need on a daily basis, etc. Potentially an extra or dry layer of clothing.
Some people call it a get home bag and will use it for just that purpose, to get themselves home after an emergency such as a natural disaster or localized event. If you work
1. the practice of forming or pursuing ideals, especially unrealistically.

1. the attitude or practice of accepting a situation as it is and being prepared to deal with it
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
If you only remember three words of the Constitution, they should probably be "We the People." Those first three words of the Preamble establish the most important concept of American government, the idea (known as "popular sovereignty") that all government power derives only from the consent of the people. "We the People" created this Constitution to establish a government (in Abraham Lincoln's famous words) "
So let me explain why I am here and why I put so much time plus yes money into this group. It’s not because I’m a rich man or have no family life. As a 47 year old man I have seen quite a bit in my lifetime, around 10 or so years ago I began seeing clear signs of a deterioration of the American way of life. Obvious taking of our Constitutional rights and freedoms. It was then I started preparing for what may come. I did a lot of outside training and began learning things I didn’t have a clue about, all in the name of preparing. I did most of this as a single unit, being just my family.
Then I began to notice this push we now call the Patriot movement along with other names. It was then that I began to follow groups and started to look for like minded people who would become extended family if that were to come. It was then that I attended a small leadership meeting at a winery and just like the first time I met my wife,
This is just the first of a series that will cover the Constitution and it's framers!!!
In a Nutshell
The Constitution of the United States is the highest law in the land, a written statement of the core principles of the American government. It lays out the structure of the federal government, clarifies the relationship between that government and the states, explains which powers the government does (and does not!) have, and guarantees certain rights and freedoms to the people.
The Constitution is, in short, the blueprint for America's democracy. It is, in many ways, the blueprint for America itself.
WHY SHOULD I CARE?
Four handwritten pages.
That's all they produced, after 116 days of hard work. That's right, it took 55 men—55 of America's most intelligent, powerful, and influential men—an entire summer to put together a document about as long as most freshman English papers.
Not too impressive, you might think.
There has been some discussion about the Constitution and Our Rights lately. Specifically, the way those Rights are being whittled away. The question was posed ‘what are my thoughts?’. In an effort to answer that question, many more questions came up. I am left with the biggest question being ‘What am I about?’.
I have been a member of this group for some time. I first became aware of the idea of the Threepers from digging around on the internet. I have long had the feeling that things were going south in this Country. It was because of that, I was looking for something I could do about it. And here I am….
Before 911, I was a regular sheople. I was chasing the American Dream. And at the time, I believed in that dream. I thought I would work hard for most of my life and then kick
So I was recently reading an article about some of the new laws coming to California in 2018, and it had me wondering what happened to the people in California. When did We The People and the Constitution become nothing more the toilet paper in Cali and other places around the Country. How did so many of us fall asleep at the wheel or were we all just distracted by all the new toys and technology that we so often rely on way to much. Or did we simply think it could never get this far, well I am here to tell you it has. Some of the things going on in the west are almost outright crimes against the Constitution and the American way of life.
It just amazes me that so many have forgotten that WE are the fourth branch of government and we run this Country. The government is supposed to work for us not work us. Have we just given up and said f it just tell me what I want to eat, how much money I should make, how I should live my life, how and when I should wipe my butt,
Did that get your attention? Oprah in 2020? My initial thought was “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!”. Trump should just push the Easy Button. This campaign is going to be extra nastily awesome! The debates are going to be wicked! He’s going to run her through the shredder and make her cry like a little girl on national TV. Wish the 2018 mid-terms were done already. Let’s get ready to rumble.
Then the initial euphoria wore off and I came to my senses. Actually I talked with a few women. While I was convinced that the silent majority is still not ready for a woman commander- in- chief, much less an African-American woman, they believe she is going to win. And these are conservative women I was speaking with.
So I pried my eye away from the knothole and started viewing it from different perspectives. That’s right. Back in 2016 people were saying they would’ve voted for a woman for president. Just not “THAT” woman. The woman who couldn’t be trusted. The classified e-mail shredder. The one who should be in e-mail shredder. The one who
July 16th 2010, the day my life was changed forever. At this time, we were half way through our deployment. The day started off like any other normal day in Afghanistan. At 0500 we would be up getting ready for the day. By 0600 we were at the chow hall eating breakfast. Justus and I would always sit there and chat while we drank some coffee. Justus Bartelt was my Staff Sergeant and the SNOIC, Staff Noncommissioned Officer in Charge, for Marine Corps Regimental Combat Team 2. Justus was one of the few that walked the walk instead of just talking the talk. He actually didn’t have to talk much at all due to our squad knew what he wanted done and would do anything to complete the tasks given. We were lucky to have a leader like him.
At 0730 our squad would meet up in the briefing tent to see our missions for the day. This particular Friday was going to be a night mission. Our squad was assigned to escort a unit across a danger zone to another FOB, Forward Operating Base. As we are
The success of a business or organization many times comes down to the quality of their leaders. Even the best concepts will fail if there are not enough people to direct the energy to the right places. So you may ask, what makes a great leader? The answer to this question is multi-facetted, and I will be hitting on a few ‘Key Ingredients’ today. The mere fact that you are taking the time to read this is a testament to your ability and likeliness to be a great leader.
Much of the drive and energy that makes someone able to move an organization forward comes from that individual’s desire to make something better than it was. Drive cannot be taught. It is a result of a person taking ownership of their part in the puzzle. It is a result of a person’s belief / commitment to the cause. When a person has that
