  • Replacement shoe laces in the field
  • Carry Strap
  • Ridgeline for a tarp shelter

  • Splint for broken fingers

For law abiding citizens; it is important to know your rights when dealing with law enforcement.  Some law enforcement officers will try and use fear or unethical tactics to get around the law; so don’t be fooled.  Keep the following in mind.

  • Your rights are always in place.  Exercise the right to remain silent when it is in your best interest.
  • You may ask why an officer is present and what they want but do not volunteer information.  Let them do the talking since anything you say prior to them reading you your miranda rights can be recorded, documented and used at trial.  Again it is best to remain silent.
  • If a law enforcement officer knocks on the door of your home you are under no obligation to answer.  If you need to inquire why they are there speak to them through the door.  You do not have to allow them physical or visual access to your property unlesss they have a search warrant or an arrest warrant.  If they demand access without these documents advise them through the door, in a nice manner, that without a warrant you are exercising your 4th amendment rights and you would appreciate it if they would kindly leave your property.
  • Opening a door or window to them is a tacit agreement to a visual inspection; this subjects you to policies of items in plain sight which can then give them probable cause for a warrant.
  • You are under no obligation to accept their invitation to step outside and speak with them. Exiting your home now puts you on their turf.  Trumped up charges can then be made that you resisted arrest or obstructed an investigation.  Again do not go outside with them.
  • If you feel harassed contact your lawyer imeediately.
  • Officers do not have to inform you of your rights before asking you questions.  Any information you provide freely could therefore be used against you in a court of law.  Exercise your rights to remain silent.

America; that once great promised land is currently in decline.  Here are the most troubling indicators that reflect this.

  1. Full scale assaults are currently underway on our rights as guaranteed under the Constitution.  The 2nd amendment is the most noticeable; but others are being ignored or trampled on by those in power as well.
  2. Unemployment.  When you have to use faulty statistics to lie to the public; something is indeed wrong.  an unemployed person whose benefits have run out is dropped from the unemployment numbers; what kind of proper statistical analysis is that?  The real unemployment numbers if all the unemployed were actually counted would approximately be about 30%.
  3. Lack of accountability.  Liberal politicians can lie all they want and make backroom deals without fear of consequences; as they are partnered up with the lame stream media that covers up their misdeeds, unless of course you are a Conservative; then you are vilified.
  4. Laws are currently designed to protect criminals and hinder law abiding citizens.  Why else would prosecutors go after law abiding citizens in court; who use a legally purchased firearm to defend themselves against armed thugs.
  5. Racism.  Whenever there is a philosophical difference in legitimate policy issues; leave it to liberals to play the race card.  Racism is at an all time low in this country; but not if you listen to the liberal pundits who want to have Americans continue to hate each other, instead of focusing on the political issues that really matter.
  6. Liberal judges who make their own laws or make rulings based on emotion or what MSNBC tells them to do; rather than follow the strict interpretation of the existing laws.
  7. The city of Detroit.  The perfect model for liberal policy and financial failures.

Profiling can save your life.  Human beings as a survival mechanism constantly profile as a method to avoid danger and everyone does it.  As an example that was told to me follows; it will clearly illustrate my point.  You are in the lobby of a six floor apartment building late at night waiting for an elevator. There are two elevators and as you push the button waiting for an elevator to arrive you are looking forward to visiting your friend who lives on the fifth floor.  In the lobby both elevator doors open at the same time.  In one elevator there are 6 old ladies; in the other elevator there are 6 men all in their 20’s dressed in gang colors.  Which elevator are you going to get into?  Anyone with common sense will get into the elevator with the 6 old ladies.  Congratulations you profiler you; you have just profiled and in doing so you have probably saved yourself from being raped, robbed or murdered.  Profiling is how human beings look to avoid danger and stay safe.

I have three primary first aid kits and I stock all of them the same way.  The first one is my home first aid kit which is contained in a military mechanics canvas tool bag and clearly labeled on the outside first aid kit.  It is kept in a primary location inside my home.  The second is attached to my bug out bag with a Molle quick release system.  That first aid pouch is made by Condor.  The third hangs on the wall near the door leading to the garage for whomever wants to take it with them if they are going out.  It is identical to the Condor First Aid pouch which is attached to my bug out bag.  This would be for use in conjunction to the existing car first aid kits.  My first aid kit contents are as follows.

  • Bandaids
  • Butterfly bandages
  • Gauze pads in various sizes
  • Alcohol Wipes
  • Lens Cleaner Wipes
  • Non Latex Disposable Gloves
  • Ibuprofen
  • Benadryl

When lawlessness occurs; survival will become the primary goal.  Keep the following in mind should any survival situation involving civil unrest ever arise.  Lightly populated areas will be safer then more heavily populated areas.  You must do whatever is necessary to avoid the thugs and mobs who will loot, riot, commit robbery, rape or arson and eventually flee the cities in search of other targets of opportunity.

In the absence of law and order it will not take long for people to revert to their base, savage instincts; so show restraint but if the situation warrants be prepared to use force in a defensive manner.  If the power fails for an extended period of time and food and water distribution is disrupted, expect to see fires, looting, escalating violent crime and massive migrations out of the cities and into the suburbs and rural areas.  Looters will look for easily accessible areas and will bypass areas that can offer strong resistance.

When the SHTF; law and order is generally the first casualty.  Be prepared to defend yourself.  If you look and act like a victim you will in all probability become a victim.  Consider your home to be your well stocked survival outpost as the last thing you want is to ever become is a fleeing refugee.

Avoid being caught unprepared.  Prep properly when times are good so you will be prepared when times are bad.  Even when society is in complete anarchy people will organize into groups; some good and some bad.  The bad ones are likely to be aggressive and violent.  Be prepared and take responsibility for your own survival.

I’m going to diverge from my usual survival and preparedness related posts, Conservative political opinions and weapons related items just for this specific post so I can mention some important things I feel everyone should strive to achieve in life.  I’ve told this over and over to my children when they were growing up; and now that they are both young adults, and college students; I’d like to pass it along to you.

  1. Attend college and graduate with an employable degree.  It is never too late to go to school.  A degree is not enough; it must be an employable degree.
  2. Enjoy what you do for work.  If you don’t then find another line of work. 
  3. Be proud of your country and proud to be an American.
  4. Find someone who makes you happy and when you do stick with that person.
  5. It’s better to have money and be happy then to not have money and be happy or unhappy.
  6. Life is too short to be miserable.
  7. If you don’t like something about your lifestyle or your personality, etc., then work on changing it.  It can be done.
  8. Have a hobby you enjoy doing and do it.
  9. Learn the art of relaxation.
  10. Have an attitude of gratitude.
  11. Believe in yourself and your abilities.
  12. Be confident always.
  13. Positive thinking gets you further than negative thinking.
  14. Agree with everything I say; oh alright, agree with everything I say most of the time 🙂

The Zimmerman verdict is in and I must say I agree with the findings of the jury.  Based on the evidence presented and only on the evidence presented; the finding of not guilty by the jury was the correct verdict in this case.
