Posts Tagged ‘Hot Tub’

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.

I spend a lot of time with my family relaxing in the hot tub in our nicely landscaped backyard at my home.  While the hot tub is very relaxing and enjoyable, for those of us who carry a weapon everyday it poses some tactical survival issues.  Obviously I do not take my firearm into the hot tub, nor do I leave it in the open or hidden nearby as anyone using the hot tub could accidently stumble upon it.

Should a SHTF situation occur while you are dripping wet, in a bathing suit, no shoes on and a gun not readily available, you leave yourself vulnerable at that particular point in time.  So in thinking the situation over this remote control option might be the answer although it will certainly clash with the pristine landscaping 🙂

Yes, there’s nothing quite like relaxing in a hot tub on a chilly evening; but your hot tub can also be a source of emergency water during a disaster and when properly treated and or filtered can help save your life.  If your hot tub is roughly 8×8 and fits 6 people; it should hold approximately 500 gallons.  That’s a lot of additional water which can be used for drinking, bathing, etc.

Remember hot tub water should be properly filtered before using .  If your filter/purification device such as the type that backpackers use; can filter out microbial contaminents and your hot tub has not been over treated with chemicals; the water can be drinkable.   Most people will require at least one gallon a day of drinking water so your hot tub as an emegency water supply can be another asset in your preperations package.
