Pod people react when you don’t wear your mask.

Anyone notice the brown shirt activity when one person refuses to wear a mask?  People are getting attacked by what I can only be describe as brown-shirt-pod-people.  It doesn’t take much to brainwash the masses does it.  The level of insanity on a mass scale is impressive.  Let them show you who they really are as it appears this kind of screening event will soon prove valuable to determine who will reach the inner-circle-of-trust.  Can’t wait to see what happens next.   -13

“…play right into their hands” Dead Kennedys -Riot

This song and lyrics couldn’t be more applicable than now could it?  If you’ve been paying attention its easy to see how current events are being manipulated. “…play right into their hands” seems to fit very well.  I’ll keep saying it, everybody keep cool, now is not the time for the boogaloo.  Self defense, maybe, the boogaloo, not yet.  We have to let them show us who they are before we act.  We must observe local politicians, police, citizens and national guard for any violations of the U.S. Constitution. Get it together while you can.  Can’t wait to see what happens next.  -13

 

Riot

Dead Kennedys

Rioting, the unbeatable high
Adrenalin shoots your nerves to the sky
Everyone knows this town is gonna blow
And it’s all
Gonna blow right now

Now you can smash all the windows that you want
All you really need are some friends and a rock
Throwing a brick never felt so damn good
Smash more glass
Scream with a laugh
And wallow with the crowds, watch them kicking peoples’ ass

But you get to the place
Where the real slave-drivers live
It’s walled off by the riot squad aiming guns right at your head
So you turn right around
And play right into their hands
And set your own neighborhood
Burning to the ground instead

Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, shoots your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you’re homeless, tonight it’s a blast

Get your kicks in quick
They’re callin’ the National Guard
Now could be your only chance to torch a police car
Climb the roof, kick the siren in and jump and yelp for joy
Quickly, dive back in the crowd, slip away, now don’t get caught

Let’s loot the spiffy hi-fi store, grab as much as you can hold
Pray your full arms don’t fall off, here comes the owner with a gun

Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, shoots your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you’re homeless, tonight it’s a blast

Yee-ah!
Yee-ah!
Yee-ah!
Yee-ah!
Yee-ah!
Shit!

The barricades spring up from nowhere
Cops in helmets line the lines
Shotguns prod into your bellies
The trigger fingers want an excuse
Now!

The raging mob has lost its nerve
There’s more of us but who goes first?
No one dares to cross the line
The cops know that they’ve won

It’s all over but not quite, the pigs have just begun to fight
They club your heads, kick your teeth
Police can riot all that they please

Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha
Ah, ha-ha, yeah!
Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, shoots your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands
Tomorrow you’re homeless, tonight it’s a blast

Riot, the unbeatable high
Riot, shoots your nerves to the sky
Riot, playing right into their hands

Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast
Tomorrow you’re homeless
Tonight it’s a blast

I have a message directed at any of the thugs attempting to destroy any person, home or property in our neighborhood.  Mr. T says it so well there is nothing to add.

“…I pity the fool and I will destroy any man who tries to take what I got…prediction? …PAIN”

LMAO! We’ll be waiting for you.  -13

Reconnaissance for the future. Target – National Guard

Civil unrest involving the deployment of national guard units are an excellent opportunity for intelligence gathering.  As we know from the past that national guard and regular troops will attack and shoot Americans if ordered to do so.  The best examples I can think of are the Bonus Army and Kent State incidents.  Another concern and why I write this is the firearm confiscation conducted by the Louisiana national guard along with local police.  Something I find unacceptable.

It’s been proven that national guard and local police are more than willing to disarm anyone who chooses to exercise their Second Amendment rights.  I believe that it is advantageous to gather as much information about your local national guard unit as possible.  Such as what is the units function?  What is the units combat experience?  What equipment, vehicles and weapons do they keep in the armory and motor pool?  What resources of any kind that may be useful are on hand?  How large is the regular staff?

Kent_State.CROP.original-original

Kent State University students falling as they are being murdered by national guard troops.

What makes a short notice deployment so useful is the probability that there will be the POVs of the personnel.  That’s vehicles and license plates.  These could be very useful in many ways should it become necessary in the future.  I support the NG and regular military when deployed for lawful purposes.  They loose all support and immunity when they overstep and violate the U. S. Constitution.

I hope this gets one to thinking about how the information could be used.  And, I’d like it to also be a reminder, those would violate our rights will be held accountable at all cost.  Food for thought, cant wait to see what happens next. -13

Freedom – Who do you want in control of YOUR life?

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of it” -Unknown

“You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.” -Eric Hoffer

Going though the videos I’ve collected that demonstrate how unarmed citizens can fight back against those who would try to take away freedom and control people I found this video from the Ukraine about the freedom to choose who the individual and collective wants to be and fear.

It’s true I’m ignorant when it comes to other languages which makes me unfamiliar with what is spoken in this video.  What is easy to understand is the message as it applies to everyone on this planet.  It is a message that should be in every Americans heart.  Given the recent experiment to control America though fear tactics I felt this would be a message light for those who may be in the shadow of darkness.

Lets keep it from coming to a fight, if it does my message to those who would attempt to oppress America, you are out numbered, out gunned, and surrounded, we will not forget, we will not forgive, wrathful compassion will be your only option.  Who do you want to control your life?  Your neighbor?  The government?  Or you?  Are you ready to fight for your freedom?  Are you well armed and prepared if your liberty demands it?  Have no fear.

Check out this video, the translation was made by the video creator. -13

Emergency & Disaster Preparedness – Bedside Commode / Toilet

Bedside commodes, a cost effective, multi-use way to collect human waste.  I’ve tried many different portable commodes from the ones that contain fresh water for flushing to the 5 gallon buckets with a toilet seat adapter.  I didn’t like any of them.

The water filled commodes require one to find a place to dump the liquid waste and resupply with fresh water plus the blue chemicals required.  The 5 gallon bucket type seat is too small and are prone to tipping over while in use.  Neither of them seem to account for men using them.  In order for the number two the reach the container the number one will be pressed onto and touching the collection bowl.  Not a good sanitary situation.  Simply, gross and nasty.

Those experiences led me to the bedside commodes typically used for medical purposes.  To start off, although the space is limited I don’t end up touching the bowl with my private parts.  A big plus for me.  The commodes have different features that make them very useful.

IMG_6504

Bedside commode over in house toilet

The commode is designed to use bedside for those who are convalescing in the home so they don’t have to travel far for relief.  The legs are height adjustable to make it easier to move onto it from a bed or place it over a bathroom toilet so that one can benefit from the arm rest.  Some arm rest are movable so that it will make it easier to move from a bed or wheelchair.

BUCKET BOWL

Covered bucket bowl with lid and liner.

They all have a covered bowl that uses disposable bags to collect waste and a splash shield.  The splash shield is used when the commode is placed over a toilet to funnel the waste into the bowl below.  This same configuration can also be used in combination with a lined 5 gallon bucket or in-ground hole or trench latrine.

SPLASH SHIELD

Splash shield

There are many types of bowl liners available.  I usually get the kit form that has the waste collection bag that contains the powder that causes the liquids to gel that once full can be placed into the included zip closed containment pouch.  I also use the bulk packaged liners designed for the bedside commodes then add the gelatin powder for the liquids.

FIVE GALLON

Splash shield, 5 gallon bucket combination

Currently we have  5 of these commodes.  One for each tent so one doesn’t have to travel through cold or rain soaked late night calls of nature.  Also one for each of our designated latrine tents.  Mostly they’ve been used for camping.  We have had one occasion to use them in the home when the main sewer drain line was broken by a tree root.  It took less that 10 minutes to get them out of storage and put in place where we used them for three days until the pipe was repaired.  Fortunately no one has had to use them for medical issues.

IMG_6492

Commode in our pop-up latrine tent

They are available at any home medical supply store, Freecycle Network, or from Craigslist.  They can be priced, depending on features, from little over $100.00 to free.  Whatever the price paid they are well worth having on hand.  On the topic of camp sanitation a good reference to have on hand is the military field manual FM MED 593 on field sanitation.  It has lots of good information for setting up different camp latrines.

I made a short video that shows set ups and features of the different commodes we use.  Let me know how you set up and what your experience has been with camp and emergency sanitation.  -13

Elf tells all – Secrets of Bass Pro’s Santa’s Wonderland

This blog post is not endorsed in any way whatsoever by Cabela’s or Bass Pro.  It is my personal experience-opinion and should be taken that way.  All photographs, images copyright Bass Pro.

Sometime early in November of 2019 I received one of the regular email promotions from Bass Pro.  The email had the regular merchandise sales and an announcement for seasonal help in Santa’s Wonderland.  I had no idea what Santa’s Wonderland was about but thought it would be a chance to see what working at Bass Pro would be like knowing the gig would stop at the end of December.

I liked the idea of not having to quit a job I didn’t like if it turned out that way.  Bass Pro was expecting to let me go already with no expectations.  I applied for and got the job.  Official title, Elf.  We were issued red polos, a green apron and a Bass Pro embroidered elf’s stocking cap.  Next on the agenda was setting up part of the Wonderland experience.

SANTA 1e

All the elfs set up artificial pine trees complete with lights and artificial snow as well as merchandise displays and play areas.  All said it took about three days to complete.  Once complete Santa’s Wonderland looked very much like it was set outdoors in a snowy forest.  It looked very realistic.  Parents should note that the display is for looking at and not a place for children to play or pose for photographs.

After a day of training on various topics we were ready to open.  Before I share some of my experiences and secrets that future visitors will find useful I should explain what Santa’s Wonderland is.

SANTA 5

Santa’s Wonderland(S.W.) can be found in many Cabela’s and Bass Pro stores during the holidays.  S.W. is a place where families, children or individuals can have a free photograph taken with Santa Claus.  There are free activities such as crafts at designated times of the day to a coloring area where children can color Christmas themed pictures with crayons or write a letter to Santa which can be placed in a mailbox feet away from the area.  Note to parents, the seating is for children to sit in while they write letter and color pictures, not for parents to take a break.

sec-foamToy

There are also play areas where children can shoot duck targets with a bow and arrow, play in a sand-dirt toy area, shoot targets with a laser “BB” gun, tables with remote control trucks, Lincoln Logs and puzzle blocks and a Nintendo video game area with a hunting and fishing theme.  Plenty of activities to keep children busy while waiting to get a photograph with Santa.

SANTA 2

New this year was the digital Bass Pass system.  In the past years laminated tickets were handed out creating long lines everyone had to wait in for hours at times.  This years system involved registering for a time slot so that there were no long lines to stand in.  To obtain a digital pass an individual has to come to the store of choice, enter a name, phone number and number of people in a particular group.

BASS PASS 1

To use the pass system the phone number used must be able to receive text messages.  Once registered there will be a confirmation message, the next message will be a reminder with an estimated wait time and a final message that says “…it’s time…” prompting the individual or group to the red carpet.  Remember to charge the phone registered and bring it with you as there will be no other way to receive notifications.

BASS PASS 2

The digital Bass Pass does not mean there won’t be long wait times.  The later in the day or season you wait to register the longer the wait time will be.  If you register early in the season you will have very short to no wait.  As the season progresses wait time for minutes turns into hours.  Get there early if you wait until Christmas eve to get your photo you will be in line a long time and may not be able to get one at all!  “The early bird gets the worm”

The whole purpose of the digital pass system is so that there aren’t long lines of people standing in one place for hours.  The digital pass allows one to roam the store, eat at the store restaurant or visit other businesses close by until you are notified its your turn.

The Bass Pass allows the individual or group to obtain one (1) free photograph with Santa.  Participants will not be allowed to split a group up for multiple photographs for only one registration.  If a group wants more that one photo it would be wise to register multiple times for the same day using different phone numbers.  That way the group will be allowed to go through the line again.

With the hundreds and hundreds of people wanting a photo the elves will be moving the line at a rate of about  1 1/2 to 2 minutes per registration.  Due the notification system there should be plenty of time for wardrobe changes, hair and makeup.  Do not get on the red carpet and expect to hold the line up while others wait.  Be ready!

Mothers with infants must have a realistic understanding that a baby whose head must be supported will not pose to look at the camera while the photo is taken.  Mothers with this expectation will be disappointed.  Same thing for young children.  Once the first photo is taken children will anticipate the flash and attempt to look away or avoid the camera altogether.  After taking hundreds of photos I noticed this with all children.

Due to the time constraints one must understand that the free photo is not a photo shoot at a studio.  Elves take three photos quickly, choose the best of the three and print that one photo.  Participants do not get to choose as this would create chaos and increase the wait times by hours.  Another reason why getting there early in the season is important.  Don’t like your photo, register again for another one.

I’m sure that my readers aren’t like this, I post this information so others will understand the elf experience.  The following will put anyone behaving in the described manner on the lead elf’s naughty list and will get individual nowhere, possibly ejected from the store.  Free does not mean one is entitled to a photograph, craft or giveaway item.  Attempting to use any reason to cut line or pay the elves to allow it will only offend them.  Standing at the registration-check in area will not get one in sooner and creates a safety hazard.  People doing this will be asked to leave the area.

Disparaging or nasty racist remarks to or about others waiting to see Santa most likely will have one ejected from the store.  It will really piss off the elves and they will call one out on it.

As a lead elf I was able to see the best and worst of human behavior.  I had a fantastic experience.  One of my favorite parts of the experience was hearing the reasons why others should be allowed to cut line.  Don’t know how I kept a straight face.  Oddly the only people who didn’t like the digital pass system are those who didn’t register soon enough or understand it.  Long time attendees liked it very much.

I’ve mentioned some very useful tips for those paying attention.  Would I do it again?  Yes I would.  I enjoyed the people I worked with and the management supported us well.  That’s all for Santa’s Wonderland hope you found this useful.  -13

Benedict Arnold Report

BARCOVER

Due to time constraints and the overwhelming traitorous acts by politicians I do not have the time to keep up with the Benedict Arnold Report.  This project will be indefinitely on hold unless something changes.  The good news is the traitors to the American republic are more than willing to show their true colors so that anyone who wants to see them can.

Be prepared! -13

Benedict Arnold Report 11 Town of Palm Beach Police Chief Nicholas P. Caristo

BARCOVER

 

South Florida Police Chief Stands by Push for More Restrictions on Gun Open Carry Laws

The report states, “Castro confronted group members during the meeting, saying the demonstrations cause fear when they are so close to schools and churches.

“When you come to the Town of Palm Beach you walk by a public school with your AR-15 out and you have a fishing pole over your shoulder, there’s kids playing in the playground,” Castro”  What a stupid thing to say it makes no sense.

In my opinion New York city thugs like Town of Palm Beach Police Chief Nicholas P. Caristo are the ones making people unnaturally frightened of inanimate objects with his fear mongering and propaganda.

P.D. phone number is 561-838-5454, the fax number is 561-835-4736 if you want to let them know what you think about them.  Don’t you love living in America?  1st Amendment!

If you have evidence you would like to share reach me via my contact page I’ll get back with you ASAP.  -13

The Florida Range Experience: Okeechobee Shooting Sports

The Florida Range Experience is a new project here on my blog.  I’m going to share my experience with the various shooting ranges I go to here in the state of Florida.  Most of the experiences will be here in the Broward and Miami-Dade county areas.  Some will be in the surrounding counties.

The need to sight in a couple of rifles led me to search for a range.  I wanted a range that I could set up my shooting rest and tools without interference.  There is an outdoor rifle range run by the county but the online reviews left me thinking I should go somewhere else.  More on that range in another blog.  During the online search I found Okeechobee Shooting Sports.

IMG_5860

The range is two hours drive from home.  After seeing the range’s website the distance didn’t matter, I wanted to go there to check it out.  They have various ranges to suit anyone’s needs.  The “Unlimited Rifle” range where a shooter can shoot in the “seated, prone, kneeling, standing” positions.  The “Gallery” where pistol shooters can practice drawing from a holster and rifle shooters can rapid or automatic fire if they want.  There are “Private” ranges that can be used in various ways.  Cost for each range varies.

IMG_5857

Shooters Cafe with shaded seating area

Then there is the “Pistol & Rifle” range.  The pistol range has a usable distance from 5 – 50 yards.  The rifle range has four marked distances, 25, 50, 100 and 200 yards.  It cost $15.00 for the day.  They also have an onsite gunsmith, a cafe, firearm rentals, memberships, and training.  Range hours of operation for non-members is Thursday – Sunday, 10am – 5pm.

 

IMG_5856

Pro Shop, Gunsmith and eating area(right)

Here’s my experience.  After viewing the website I filled out and signed the required waiver online.  That makes checking a quick process.  Don’t forget to watch the safety video before you go.  When I arrived I went to the Pro Shop, told the clerk my name and within a minute and a half I was paid up and ready for the range.  Checking in was super easy.

IMG_5849

The 24 lane rifle range was well run.  George the RSO(Range Safety Officer) was the kind of range safety we all want watching over us.  He’s not the overbearing mother hen type he’s an easy to get along with, very nice guy.  He will make sure you know how the range is operated and hold you to it without all the fanfare.  Hope he’s there the next time I go.

There are 15 minute shooting time blocks controlled by an automated system that announces when to stop firing and prepare for target changes.  The RSO will insure all procedures are followed before allowing anyone down range.  Once the target changes are made shooters are given the all clear and allowed to proceed with shooting.  The procedures are more detailed that was the short version.

IMG_5853

Rifle lane

Each lane is equipped with a shooting rest, and two seats.  The early bird gets to use the spotting scopes on a table in front of the RSO station.  The target system is a pleasure to use.  Targets are stapled onto a system where cardboard is attached to wood supports that are attached to a metal base.  Staplers are provided.  Target removal or set up is very easy.  There are also concrete markers for each lane to help the shooter line it up with the shooting position.

There were maybe about ten other shooters on the rifle range.  They seemed equally divided by task.  Some were sighting or checking zero on hunting rifles, others were doing the same thing with AR15’s or similar.  Something to note about the lanes.  The divider between lanes is hardware fabric.  It will keep others brass out of your shirt but will not protect you from muzzle break discharge.

Visible in the rifle lane photo on the right is the muzzle break that gave me a strong blast every time the shooter next to me fired.  I’m not complaining, just making note so you’re not surprised.  I enjoyed the blast it helped me focus more on the task at hand and was a welcome test of my ability to ignore things that don’t matter.

Things that matter to me is staff attitude, how the range is operated and cleanliness.  All the staff were friendly.  The range was operated well, range participants know what to expect and what is expected of them.  The range was clean and well maintained.  My first experience at Okeechobee Shooting Sports was good.  I plan on going back to shoot on the other ranges in the future.  If you get a chance to go check them out I think you’ll have a good time there.  -13

The Florida Range Experience: A new project for my blog

The Florida Range Experience is a new project here on my blog.  I’m going to share my experience with the various shooting ranges I go to here in the state of Florida.  Most of the experiences will be here in the Broward and Miami-Dade county areas.  Some will be in the surrounding counties.

I’m not going to use a rating system there are too many variables.  I will make my opinion clear by stating whether I’ll go back for more or never return again.  All the reasons that form those opinions will be written here in this blog.

I’ll be basing my opinion on my overall experience and the other things that matter too me.  Such as how are the range staff?  Are they aloof, bullies, mother hens, know it all’s?  Or are they courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, easy to get along with?

How well the range is operated.  Does the range have standard operating procedures or is it a free-for-all?  Is there brass everywhere creating a trip hazard or are shooters and staff expected to keep the range lanes clean?  Condition of the restrooms.

Those are a few of the things I’ll be looking at when visiting the range.  I’m hoping that others like me want to know what a range is like before deciding to go there.  I want the information in the blog to be useful.  -13

 

 

That time I brought a shotgun to school and nobody cared.

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

I was determined and prepared that day to do what I had to do.  Nothing was going to stop me from getting a shotgun from the family armory and take it to school.  I placed a 20 gauge in the carry case and box of shells in a leather bag my dad used at the range, my dad supervising.  My plan?  Impress my instructor and pass the state sponsored hunter safety course held at our junior high school.  Participating students were instructed to bring a firearm with them to demonstrate safety skills taught in the class.

All children should be taught basic firearms skills and the importance and meaning of the Second Amendment.  Not that firearms should be feared.  Fear is not a natural reaction, fear of firearms is instilled by those with an agenda.  I brought a firearm to school and nobody cared.  -13
