What has happened to my America.  We have gone from a nation of self reliance to a nation of entitlement dependents.  Now I know not everyone is like this; but for those of you with an entitlement mentality; have some self respect and try achieving the following.

  • Get a good education.  It can be done; just apply yourself.
  • Get a good job.  Something you can be proud of.  It may take time to find one that satisfies you; as well as pays well, but keep looking until you find one that’s right for you.
  • Stop expecting other people to foot the bill for you.  A lifetime dependency on welfare should make you feel ashamed.  No self respecting person should feel good about themselves; being on an entitlement program for their entire life.
  • Got a dream; then see it through.  Don’t give up on it just because you hit a roadblock or two.  Keep pushing forward until you achieve what you want.
  • There is a right and a wrong regardless of what the lamestream media tells you.  Try to have a good moral code and do the right thing even if no one is there watching.
  • Maintain a positive outlook and a confident manner as often as possible; and try to genuinely enjoy what life has to offer.
  • Lying, cheating and stealing is no way to go through life.
  • If you have strong convictions about something than stand your ground.
  • Believe in yourself and have faith in your abilities to succeed.

One of my readers asked me to re-post this again so to oblige; here you go.  As I sat in my hot tub and relaxed in the warmth of the churning water; I managed to resolve my top 6 issues that I feel America faces.  So if I was the President; here are the 6 policies I would implement to get this great country back on track.

  1. Illegal Aliens – Round them up and deport them immediately.  They are here illegally which makes it a criminal offense.  Immediately implement border security with posted signs indicating that anyone trying to illegally cross the border will be fired upon and follow through with such action.
  2. Welfare – Eligible one time in your life only; not to exceed 12 months.  At that point no further welfare would be allowed for an individual.  The prospect of no more welfare funds coming in would highly motivate recipients to go out and get a job in order to survive.
  3. Prison System – 24 hour lockdown would be mandatory.  No early release.  Sentences to be served in full.  No weight rooms, no TV, no radio.  I would allow “elevator music” and perhaps a daily newspaper for reading.  Prison cells would be harsh, not comfortable resulting in those getting out of prison never wanting to return.
  4. War – Would no longer be fought in a politically correct fashion.  If we had to go to war, our military would be allowed to fight as viciously as possible in order to win.  No more touchy, feely ,methods of combat.  Wars are meant to be won and won quickly.
  5. Taxes – 3% flat tax would be implemented replacing the current individual income tax code at all income levels with no deductions.  Go out and earn as much as you can and pay your 3%.  NO deductions, no loopholes.  Straight 3% which can never be increased. 
  6. Concealed Carry – All law abiding citizens with valid pistol permits would be allowed and encouraged to carry concealed 24/7.  Criminals fear armed civilians and being armed with proper training goes a long way to keeping criminals at bay.  No malicious prosecutions would be allowed for armed citizens who shoot a thug in self defense.

Feel free to vent by commenting on the following.  If you could pick one political issue that concerns you more than any other; what issue would it be and why?  I’ll reserve my answer for a just a little while.

An extreme survival scenario has just ocurred.  Armed criminals are on the prowl with the intent of harming you and your family.  Now is not the time to make shooting mistakes.  Here are some of the common shooting scenario mistakes people make when under stress or pressure.  Avoid these shooting mistakes at all costs.

  • Not seeing what is in plain sight while scanning the area for the enemy.
  • Not being aware of where your muzzle is pointed and what your trigger finger is doing.
  • Moving too quickly.
  • Not removing the safety once target acquisition has been obtained.
  • Not being sure of your target and considering what is around the target.
  • Not prioritizing your threats.
  • Not making positive ID that a threat is truly a threat.
  • Not breathing properly or having correct situational awareness.
  • Not having sufficient, available ammunition in the correct caliber for your weapon.

As a law abiding citizen I’m glad to see that the second amendment (and my pistol permit) allow me to carry a firearm legally.  Here are some important reasons why being armed in the event your life is in danger is so critically important.

  • Criminals attack when the police are not present and when there are no police in sight.  This leaves you alone to fend for yourself if attacked.
  • Criminals target individuals they believe they can overpower; so when an intended victim draws a gun in a defensive manner, the criminal quickly realizes that the target has the potential to stop them immediately.
  • Are criminals afraid of law abiding citizens with guns?  Absolutely.
  • When you are attacked, it is your right and responsibility to defend yourself.
  • Police rarely stop crime from taking place but instead investigate violent offenses after they have occurred.
  • Violent death at the hands of a criminal is one thing you can’t do over.
  • Better to have a gun and not need it then need a gun and not have it.
  • If you are about to become the victim of a violent crime ask yourself the following.  Do I have time to reach a phone and dial 911 before being attacked?  If I reach the police; how long will it take the police to arrive if an attack is imminent?  

These statements and more; are just some of the reasons why it is essential, that law abiding citizens need to make sure that their rights to legally own firearms are not usurped.  As I’ve stated in previous posts firearms training and proper practice at a gun range is recommended for those who choose to legally own firearms.

My newest book entitled American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution has just been published and is the sequel to American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution and American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution.  Here is a brief description of the story line from book 3.

Forged in the bonds of nuclear Armageddon; survivors must deal with the grim realities which now face them, as the world they have known comes to a fiery end. Using their survival skills; they must deal with increased radiation levels, genetic mutations, disease, starvation and death. Threats are ever present as old enemies and new ones emerge; to wreak havoc on those who so far have been fortunate enough to remain alive. One man’s scientific discoveries however may hold the key; to reversing the course of events which has brought mankind to the brink of extinction. This is book 3 in the American Rebellion series.

Concealed Carry means exactly what it says; carrying a weapon concealed so that you know it is there but nobody else does.  Even if you don’t own or carry a weapon it is a wise idea to learn the body language of those who do carry a weapon.  The following are things you should be aware of when carrying concealed.

  • Avoid skin tight clothing that can accentuate a concealed carry gun.
  • Make sure your covering garment such as a coat, long shirt, etc., is still long enough to cover your weapon in the event you have to reach up; so the muzzle end of the holster does not show.
  • Avoid movements such as patting your weapon through your clothing to make sure your weapon is still there.  It is a tell tale sign that you are carrying and should not be done.
  • Be careful when sitting in restaurants to avoid having the weapon, under your clothing, hitting the table or chair, where the sound of contact between weapon and wood or metal tables and chairs can be heard by others.
  • Make certain when you bend or lean forward; the holster and or gun does not swing forward; to be accidently revealed from under your covering garment.
  • Wear the right clothes appropriate to your environment.  A heavy jacket in a hot environment is not only a no no but is another tell tale sign that you are hiding something, likely a weapon.
  • Never flash your weapon.
  • You do have your CCW permit right!!!

Carrying a concealed weapon should be something done discreetly; in the event your life is in immediate, imminent danger.  It is not for showing off or displaying in public; it is for your personal self defense if the situation should warrant the use of defensive force.

Keeping in mind that a survival situation will effect everyone’s survival and not just yours, it is important to minimize your struggles in order to maximize your survival chances.  The following are some important considerations.

  • Allow extra time to accomplish your goals during a disaster as it will usually take longer to get to your destination, complete your plan or project, etc.
  • Information is critical so use it to your advantage.  Make sure it is up to date and accurate.
  • Have sufficient modes of transportation and reserve fuel for yourself, your family and your supplies.
  • Utilize all available skills as needed and keep an accurate inventory of your gear, food and other resources.
  • Security, security, security.  Increase your security level as disasters will often bring out the worst in people.  Your security and safety is critical.

There are three types of folks.  Those who will do nothing to prepare for their survival and immediately surrender to circumstances, those who will do whatever it takes to survive even if their actions are immoral and unethical and those who will do what is necessary to survive while retaining their morals and ethics.  Try to be part of the 3rd type of folks. 

If things do get bad you need to be prepared to defend yourself not only for your own survival but for those other family members who may also be depending upon you for their survival.  It can be a dangerous world when disaster strikes so be prepared.

Be alert for predatory signs that usually signal an increased probability of attack.  These signs include excessive or prolonged eye contact; people who approach you deliberately or move with you as you move; predatory movements such as circling, splitting up, or trying to get behind you and people who try and herd you towards a low visibility, isolated ambush point.

Other signs include the use of distractions such as someone asking for directions, or for a light, or physically bumping into you; people who quickly enter your personal space; people who are deliberately following you and people who wear inappropriate clothes such as a heavy jacket in warm weather.

Pay attention to your surroundings (situational awareness).  If something seems unusual, start to increase your defensive posture.  Your behaviors and actions should signal to a predator that you would be a hard target and that you pose such a hazard to them, that they will look elsewhere for an easier target.

Avoid dangerous people and dangerous situations.  If attacked you must be mentally prepared to incapacitate your attacker and win at all costs.  Your mindset and attitude can significantly effect the outcome.
