The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in Healthy Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain



The Shootist. This movie was fittingly John Wayne’s last film. It is about an old gunfighter who is dying of cancer. At the time, Wayne had terminal cancer. It was shot on location in Carson City, Nevada. The supporting roles are also quite well acted. It is available on DVD, and also available for free streaming to Amazon Prime members.

Refusenik. A great documentary released in 2008 about the long struggle of persecuted Jews inside the Soviet Union, who at great cost finally gained the right to emigrate to Israel and to other western nations.

Vlogs and Instructional Videos:

YouTube’s war on gun vloggers is intensifying. Most recently they took down the Brownells channel. Poof! Vanished. The YouTube “Community Guidelines” are putting “hits” on vloggers. Their latest Guidelines are nothing short of anti-gun censorship. Please bookmark Full30.com, and start looking there first for firearms content. At the rate things are going, by the end of 2018, I predict that there will be hardly any firearms education and entertainment videos available on YouTube.

Necco Assorted Original Candy Wafers 24-2.02 oz Rolls, Net Wt 3 lbs. Stock up before the factory closes its doors! In my opinion, this is the ideal barterable candy for long term storage.

  1. The only problem with Necco Wafers used as a barter item is that I would have to quit eating them. I have some set back, then for some reason, they have disappeared.

  2. I’ve never been a huge fan of Necco Wafers for eating… But one of my favorite childhood memories was using them as targets for 22lr practice. Great fun!
