A stunning example of the failure of our educational system when students go out into the world and get a job.

Most attacks are perpetrated by one or more individuals using diversions.  Learn to respect your intuition and listen to it.  You need to defend your home like a castle.  Make sure your doors and windows are locked and that your garage doors are secure.  Never open your door to strangers as violent criminals often pose as someone they are not in order to gain access to your home.

Keep a fully charged cell phone and a firearm that you are proficient with handy.  Avoid walking in unlit areas and stay away from thick shrubbery near trails and paths.  When rounding blind corners stay at least 10 feet away from buildings and parked cars.  Never walk with headphones or earbuds on as it significantly diminishes your situational awareness.

Vary your times and routes as predators often rely on a potential victims consistent patterns.  Keep your car doors locked.  Always park in well lit areas and make sure you carefully scan any parking area before parking and again before exiting your car.  If you’re driving home and suspect you are being followed, verify by making a series of left and right turns around a given area.  If the vehicle is still behind you do not under any circumstances lead them to your home.

Avoid driving through bad parts of town.  When stopped at a traffic light or other delays, if you cannot see the tires of the vehicle in front of you then you are too close to that vehicle.  Leave enough space between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you so you can manuever your car if danger approaches. 

An attacker is capable of anything so do not allow people to encroach into your personal space.  Never allow yourself to be cornered or boxed in.  Never allow yourself to be restrained or forcibly moved from one location to another.  Use visualization techniques to mentally practice what you would do in the event of an ambush, carjacking, attempted mugging, home invasion, etc.

Pleading for mercy may actually encourage an attacker to be more vicious.  Don’t second guess yourself.  If something feels wrong, listen to your instincts.

Writers, what are you working on these days?  Here’s your chance to share what your past, present and future writing projects are.  Don’t be shy; let us know what you’ve been up to.  I’m always interested in giving other writers a chance to share their projects with people who follow my blog.

As for myself I have five fiction books in the post apocalyptic survival genre published; and available at Amazon.com.  Titles are and you will see a pattern here 🙂

  • American Rebellion Book 1 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 2 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 3 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 4 of the Revolution
  • American Rebellion Book 5 of the Revolution

My current writing project is a new series, not yet titled, which will deal with zombies.  I’ll be alternating between writing my new zombie series and then going back to continue on with the post apocalyptic American Rebellion series.  Okay writers; what are you working on?

So you’ve survived and now you find yourself trying to stay alive in a hostile world filled with thugs, criminals, looters and raiders.  They are everywhere; so to increase your survival chances you must minimize any target indicators that you give off.

A target indicator is anything that will reveal your location to an enemy.  As you move throughout the post apocalyptic world; avoid at all costs giving off the following target indicators.

  • Avoid walking on creaky wooden floors or stepping on twigs or branches.  Noises you create are your enemies.
  • Avoid having your reflection showing in windows, mirrors and other shiny surfaces that can give away your position.
  • Avoid giving off shadows.
  • Avoid having your gun muzzle protrude from around a corner as it can lead to a gun grab by an enemy.
  • Avoid the sounds of your clothing scraping against a wall.
  • Avoid leaving a previously closed door open after you have entered a location and vice versa.  Small changes to a location can indicate that you have been there.
  • Avoid leaving the smell of tobacco in a location where that smell was not present before.
  • Avoid colognes and scented soaps as these smells can be easy for an enemy to track.
  • Avoid leaving footprints especially muddy footprints.  They are easily tracked.  
  • Avoid leaving palm prints on foggy windows.
  • Avoid talking when not necessary as sounds can travel a good distance revealing your position.
  • Avoid wearing gear and other equipment which rattles.  Your gear should be properly fastened to ensure it remains quiet; as you move about the terrain.
  • Avoid quick and jerky movements.  These movements are easy for an enemies eyes to detect.
  • Avoid creating strong cooking odors which can lead unwanted visitors to your location.

The current round of anti gun/gun control measures are simply ridiculous.  The liberal democratic mentality is ludicrous as what they are seeking to do is disarm  and punish law abiding citizen’s while further empowering violent criminals.  Notice how the more liberals try to ban guns; the higher gun sales go, as law abiding citizen’s purchase them in record numbers realizing that they need to arm themselves for self defense purposes.  Using the liberals ridiculous logic; look for them to now propose the following.

  • All knives in people’s kitchens must be registered; if they have more than ten knives in their kitchen.  

If you really want to see no more ridiculous gun control laws then simply pass the following legislation: a law disarming all politicians bodyguards.  We will then have our gunrights back in no time flat.  What do these ridiculous liberals think; that by passing some so called feel good gun control laws that the streets will suddenly be safe to walk down alone, at night in the inner cities, and that car doors can now be left unlocked without worrying about anything being stolen.  Most of these politicians should already be in jail for violating the Constitution.  Seen any of them arrested lately?

“Necessity is the excuse for every infringement of human freedom.  It is the argument of the tyrant and the creed of the slave.”  William Pitt

“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions.  There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern.  They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”  Daniel Webster

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”   Benjamin Franklin

“If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace.  We seek not your counsel, nor your arms, crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”  Samuel Adams

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.  It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children or our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”  Ronald Reagan

“If you wish for peace, prepare for war.”  Publicus Flavius Vegetius, Renatus

“No man is happy without a delusion of some kind.  Delusions are as necessary to our happiness as our realities.”   Christian Nestell Bovee

Once a month I thought I would place a question on my blog for discussion and debate.  So without further delay here is the question for the month of April, 2013.

Do you think based on either economics, political divisions, domestic policy and or foreign policy that a 2nd Civil War is coming to the United States?  Looking forward to hearing what you think.

America is still the greatest nation on planet Earth.  We seem as a nation, however, to be losing our way.  In light of that here are my proposed solutions to making America great again right now.

  1. Laws need to be fair, simplified and easy to understand.
  2. Laws must be Constitutional.
  3. People need to work for a living and stop receiving “lifetime” government handouts.
  4. Government is too large and needs to be reduced in size.
  5. Government and business corruption needs to be severely punished.
  6. Government needs to stop sticking their noses into every facet of people’s lives and stop trying to regulate everything.
  7. Proper morals and values need to be taught.  There is a right and there is a wrong.
  8. People need to take personal responsibility for their actions.
  9. Criminals need to receive harsher punishment for brutal crimes and should serve out their full sentences.
  10. Criminals convicted of rape, murder, carjacking, etc., should automatically receive life sentences with no chance of parole or the death penalty which should be carried out promptly.
  11. No restrictions or laws should ever be placed on law abiding citizen’s when it comes to owning guns or using them for self defense.
  12. The right to protect your home and family from thugs and criminals should always be the law of the land.
  13. Any politician proposing an unconstitutional law should immediately be fired from their elected position.
  14. Any district attorney who attempts to prosecute a home defense shooting when the shooting is justified should immediately be removed from their position.
  15. If you are anti-any part of the Constitution and Bill of Rights you should be banned from running for public office.
