How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It

Is it being paranoid when people are really following you?

I flirt with disaster.  I am not a thrill seeker, but I can see the potential for a period of either economic, social, or health related (pandemic) emergency.  I would like to be prepared for such an emergency and have been looking at good resources to decide how to approach this.  I have posted about a few books that I have read and How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It has been the best so far.  This one will certainly go on my bookshelf.

News Briefs – Volume XXIX Land of the Free

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories.  This edition is all about America the land of the free.  The “free” used to refer to our God-given freedoms outlined in our founding documents, but the term has mutated over decades of nanny-state policies to mean what the government “gives” us for free.  There is perhaps no better continuing example of the progressive, left-winged, drive-by, main-stream media’s collusion with Democrats than its continuing dumbing down of Americans.  Although the scarier part is that many accept, even crave the handouts.

Travel Treasure – The Original Oyster House

There are still a few iconic restaurants in Pittsburgh that I enjoy. They are not the fancy, five-star tablecloth joints, but the kind of places that attract all types of people. Karma led me to one today that I had not been to in probably a decade. I had the dubious task of getting tires on one of our company vehicles. There were some “issues” with what work needed to be done and since our service approvals are centralized I was captive until the issue was resolved and the repairs complete.

News Briefs – Volume XI

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  The Democrats and Obama have been making some noise about providing subsidies for the dead tree media.  Maybe this is a quid pro quo since most newspapers have been propping  them up for decades and Obama for the past few years.  Before you get all freaky on this concept, remember that it has been used quite successfully in other countries.  The United States would join the ranks of Venezuela, China, Russia (they’ve gone a step further and have actually “cancelled” some journalists to decrease supply), North Korea and Nazi Germany.
