FOREWARNED

The sensitivity warning that you saw before entering this blog site is a a Google Blogger option.

Coffee Drinkers Face Soaring Prices As Shipping Costs Surge


(Five cans across and three cans deep is enough coffee for maybe 18-months here at home.) 

We're good for now. Don't be surprised if there is a sudden coffee shortage as people rush to try and beat the retail price increases that will follow the increase in commodity shipping costs.

Do I keep emergency toilet water?

 

(above image stolen from The Shit He Posts on Facebook)

This top photo is from September 2019.  The bottom photo is from around September 2018.  The basement (aka "The Man Cave") is forever a work in progress. The yellow arrows in the top photo point to repurposed once empty milk-jugs; 48-gallons of toilet-flushing-water are on those shelves (~400-lbs). A couple of decades ago this area of the badlands was brand-new construction and the public utilities were a work-in-progress for a good long time. We suffered through many interruptions of water and electrical service. Hell, the first year that I lived here the city refused to plow snow from the streets. Lessons learned. Police protection back then? Forgetaboutit!  All that being said, I have not needed to use any of the emergency toilet water reserves for many years. It's there if the time comes.

Did I keep emergency toilet water back when I was an apartment denizen? Nope. Efficiency apartments can limit a person's ability to store emergency supplies; I had other pressing issues to deal with back then. All any of us can do at any give time is the best that we can.

Hang in there.
Be as prepared as possible.

CCRKBA LAUNCHES ‘SAVE2A’ NATIONAL TV AD WARNING ABOUT H.R. 127



CCRKBA LAUNCHES ‘SAVE2A’ NATIONAL TV AD WARNING ABOUT H.R. 127

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is launching a multi-network television advertising effort next week to alert the nation’s gun owners about H.R. 127, a gun control measure that takes extremism to a dangerous new level.

“We’re calling this the ‘SAVE2A.US’ campaign because that’s exactly what it is,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “H.R. 127, introduced by veteran anti-gun Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, is a dreadful piece of legislation mandating gun owner licensing and registration, mandatory psychological examinations of gun owners, mandatory gun owner insurance, mandatory minimum prison sentences for gun owners who do not comply, and bans on whole classes of firearms and original capacity magazines.

“Democrats are attempting to implement this legislation,” he continued, “and could take action within the next few weeks. Once again, Democrats are trying to turn your Second Amendment right into a government-regulated privilege, and we’re alerting gun owners across the country about this alarming new threat to the Bill of Rights.”

CCRKBA’s 60-second message will be broadcast 25 times, Gottlieb said, on the following networks: DirecTV, Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Bloomberg, the Weather Channel, HLN, OANN, the Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel and the Inspiration Channel.

Gun owners can visit SAVE2A.US or text SAVE2A to 474747.

“America’s gun owners are facing the most sinister attack on their Second Amendment rights I’ve ever seen,” Gottlieb observed. “Jackson Lee’s legislation is really just the tip of the iceberg, because with Joe Biden in the White House, Beltway Democrats are determined to destroy the Constitution’s cornerstone Amendment.

“Anyone who values their rights needs to get involved in this effort,” he concluded. “We are going toe-to-toe against an ominous piece of legislation that amounts to a clear and present danger to our firearms freedoms.”



With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at www.ccrkba.org or by email to InformationRequest@ccrkba.org.

SAF ‘2A FIRST RESPONDER’ TV CAMPAIGN ADDS 7TH WEEK AND MORE NETWORKS

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation’s well-received “2nd Amendment First Responder” campaign has been extended for an unprecedented seventh week, with our 60-second message scheduled to appear 89 more times, and more networks have been added to reach an even wider audience.

SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb revealed today that he has added AMC, FX and the Comedy network to a lineup that already includes CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Fox Business, One America News Network, Destination America, Bloomberg, BBC America, the Investigation Discovery Channel, American Heroes Channel, SYFY (Science Fiction), TLC (The Learning Channel), TruTV, DirecTV, The Weather Channel, HLN, Dish TV, CNBC, the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.

“We’re gratified at the overwhelming public response to our message,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We’re maintaining a strong presence across more than a dozen networks. By the end of next week, our ad will have been viewed 528 times by tens of millions of viewers across the country.”

Over the past six weeks, SAF has added legions of new members and supporters, many of whom are people who bought a gun for the first time during the past 12 months. And, according to Gottlieb, approximately 40 percent of SAF’s new gun-owning supporters are women.

“What this surge in interest tells us is that Second Amendment activism is stronger than it has ever been,” Gottlieb said, “despite the highly-publicized legal and financial troubles now being faced by the National Rifle Association. Over the past few months, we’ve added more than 55,000 new supporters, and that number goes up every day.

“That’s exactly what the ‘2nd Amendment First Responder project set out to do,” he explained. “Our mission is to energize grassroots activists across the United States. With their support, we can advance SAF’s educational and legal actions, challenging unconstitutional laws and regulations in courtrooms all over the country.

“Our job is to provide intellectual ammunition to grassroots activists so we can ultimately win the Second Amendment debate, and secure our right to keep and bear arms for generations to come,” Gottlieb concluded.


The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation's oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
