See how much more relaxed I am after I buy a few prepper items.  I even got to take a nap.  Life is awesome.

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  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.
  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 🙂

My latest book entitled American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution has just been published and is available at Amazon.com.  It is a continuation of my American Rebellion book series; and a complete list of all my books in the series is shown below, along with how to obtain a free preview.

The story line for American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution is as follows. In the aftermath of the apocalypse; powerful survival groups are emerging, some of whom are intent on creating as much chaos as possible. New Jersey has seen the rise of the Horsemen Clan led by Samuel Weaver; while in Connecticut, the Pit Fighters led by T-Bird seek to expand their territorial holdings. Remnants of Force 121 are regrouping as they try to hold firm to their moral compass; while the government forces led by President Obrien have re-emerged with plans to decimate anyone who opposes their dictatorial policies. For the remaining survivors who are still out there alone; danger lurks around every corner. This is book 4 in the American Rebellion series.

Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed to the fullest.  You should live the way you want, work at something you enjoy doing, reside where you want and get as much satisfaction from life as possible.  Along with that however, it is also prudent to be prepared for situations in life where things are contra to your best interests.  Disasters such as social unrest, war, famine, societal collapse, escalations in violent crime, etc., are just some of the things that in this day and age are of concern to many.  So, along with enjoying the good times, it is also important to prepare for the bad times.

The following are the things I consider most important for preparing for your own survival.

  • There is no such thing as having too much canned food or water set aside.  If disaster strikes, grocery stores may not be available to supplement your needs.  You must maintain a minimum of 3 months worth of food and water per person.  Don’t forget about your pets.
  • Yes, yes, yes you must have a sufficient amount of guns and ammunition and be well versed in their use.  You may have sufficient quantities of emergency supplies, but if others try and forcibly take them, you must be able to hold onto what you have.
  • People can and will panic during disasters so avoid large crowds and any areas subject to martial law and or rioting.  Use common sense and good judgement in deciding whom to trust.
  • Always keep  small amounts of cash on hand.  A disaster may render ATM’s and credit card systems useless.  If so, cash or barter may be the only ways to immediately conduct business.
  • Take responsibility for your own survival.  Ability without character is useless.  Remain moral and ethical during times of crisis.

Whenever I take my handguns and shotguns to the range for practice; my range bag comes along as an essential piece of shooting gear.  Its purpose; to keep all my gear safely stored and together in one convenient, organized gear bag.  I’ve used a lot of range bags over the years but the one I find works best for my needs is the 511 Tactical Patrol Ready Bag.  It has convenient storage pockets for almost anything you need to bring with you and is sized properly to store whatever you need to ensure a proper and enjoyable range session.

Here’s what I keep in the various internal and external pockets.  Two water bottles, 9mm ammo in a molle pouch, 45ACP ammo in a separate molle pouch, pistol rugs, holsters, spare magazines, ear protection, gun cleaning equipment, first aid kit, targets, tape, 00 buck shotgun shells in molle pouches, shooting gloves, flashlight, spare batteries, fixed blade knife, bandanna, ball cap and a few other miscellaneous odds and ends.

In any scenario; it is important to be aware of all that is around you as part of your 360 degree security plan.  You need to pay particular attention to anyone or anything which seems out of place.  Trust your instincts, do not ignore them as your first concern will be to stay alive.

You are your own first line of defense.  Based on circumstances the course of action you choose needs to be carried through without hesitation.  When faced with violence, which cannot be avoided, you must have the will to act with ferocity and severity in order to save your life.

It is irrational in this day and age that a law abiding citizen would not carry some form of a weapon.  To choose not to carry a weapon intentionally renders yourself partially defenseless.  Violence is escalating and many attacks occur in fringe areas such as deserted parking lots, alleyways, public bathrooms, stairwells, ATM kiosks, etc., where no immediate help will be available.

The most reliable and powerful weapon will do you no good if a situation demands immediate, decisive action for your survival and you fail to take action.  While it is best to avoid violence; if you are in a life threatening situation you may need to react violently to save your life.  Never escalate a situation which could turn violent until you consider where it might lead.

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.

Everyone needs to draw a line in the sand for what they will and will not tolerate.  Here is my list of things I will not tolerate.

  • Anyone who tells me my political beliefs are wrong.  I am proud to be a Conservative Republican and truly believe that Conservative ideals are the way to go.
  • Anyone who tries to take away my second amendment rights to keep and bear arms.  I am a proud gun owner who trains and practices on a regular basis and who takes pride in my target shooting skills.
  • Anyone who does not prepare for disasters; and then expects others to drop everything to help them when they could have helped themselves.
  • Anyone with a welfare/entitlement mentality.  While I understand everyone goes through hard times at certain points in their lives; it is up to each individual to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and go on to achieve something worthwhile.
  • Anyone who is a racist.  There is no room for racism and no excuse for anyone who engages in racist tirades or racist hatred.  Hating others because of their race, creed, religion or origin is simply wrong thinking.
  • Anyone without morals or values.  It is not hard to do the right thing so make sure when the situation presents itself; that you choose to do the right thing.
  • Anyone engaging in violent crime.  You are the scum of the earth and you can expect to receive a just punishment.  Karma has a way of balancing the scales.
