Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — March 31, 2020

March 31 is the birthday of economist Dr. Walter E. Williams, PhD., who was born in 1936. His book American Contempt for Liberty is highly recommended.

A reminder: The big “Pre-Hunker” sale on pre-1899 manufactured cartridge guns at Elk Creek Company ends at midnight, tonight.  I’ve sold eight guns since Monday morning, and only have about 70 more left on hand.  Get your order in soon!


  1. On the book American Contempt for Liberty, what a totally perfect title for a book.

    Walter Williams is one of my few heroes. The guy tells it like it is and he is one of the very rare Americans who not only truly understands the concept of Freedom but also embraces it. If you’re a conservative Republican, do not read this book. You might wake up to the truth about Freedom and then your friends will all think you’re a nut job and send you packing. Keep drinking the koolaid. Keep taking the blue pill. Don’t read this book. Friends are more important than Freedom. The chains get heavier every year but you get used to them. Don’t read this book.

  2. Sounds like a double dog dare. I am going to order this book today!

    They just keep adding sugar to the koolaid. Can’t even taste the artificial fruit flavor anymore. I have found it useful to induce vomiting.

    In my eyes all politicians are simply the same crook in a different suit. We are left with choosing to vote for who we see as the best of the worst.
    Jesus is the way.

    1. “In my eyes all politicians are simply the same crook in a different suit.” You are totally correct, Lee. The two parties exist only to keep We the Sheeple distracted banging heads with each other while party leaders are in Washington behind closed doors schmoozing with each other, smoking cigars and downing brandies.

      I refuse to vote because it only legitimizes an illegitimate system and fools people into thinking they make a difference and are part of the system. BS. We are way beyond that. If we are voting for the lesser of two evils all the time, we are still voting for evil. People seem to miss that rather salient point. I vote every single election, but only for my state and local referendums, never for people. “If you don’t vote, you don’t get to gripe.” That’s pure propaganda. The opposite is true. When your team loses, you don’t get to gripe because everyone played by the rules. When you vote, you don’t get to gripe because everyone played by the rules. I don’t recognize the state’s right to rule over me, so I don’t help elect the people who carry that out. That gives me the right to gripe. When you help elect lawmakers (laws are the ONLY way we lose our freedoms, contrary to what the military industrial complex would have us believe) then in my view, you lose your right to gripe when they pass laws you don’t like.

      1. What we call “voting” is just stating an opinion on a very narrow set of choices pre-determined by people we have never met at a time set for us to do so.

        In my world, the vote that counts is where I invest my money and time. Thus, I am choosing the candidates and time of casting my many votes daily. I call that liberty.

        No kool-aid. Ginger tea for this one.

        Carry on in grace

    1. Hey RKRGRL68, oh-oh, next thing you know you’ll be reading The Creature from Jekyll Island and then you’ll be full-fledged ready for the loonie bin. I’ll save you and Lee a seat by the window, there’s a great view of the mountains. And we have real British-style fish and chips on Fridays! 🙂

  3. Do not watch this video. It is loaded with a wealth of information for those who may need to treat loved ones at home. If you do not watch this video, more people will likely require hospitalization. It’s an investigation and short study of some old timey remedies that can be used at home from the Spanish Flu era, Hydrothermal Rherapy, an improvement over simply managing a beneficial fever. Do not learn about lost wisdom, and techniques that cost nothing, yet could save a life. Don’t do it! :O)

    Coronavirus Pandemic Update 47: Searching for Immunity Boosters & Possible Lessons From Spanish Flu

    1. Interesting idea, TR.

      Also, as a note, when someone has a very high fever and you need to bring it down quickly, use a tepid (slightly warm) bath (NOT a cold bath).

    2. Hydrothermal Rherapy, an improvement over simply managing a beneficial fever. Oh, yes, that Rherapy is an old-timey typo remedy.

      Thanks for sending this out, brother. My acupuncturist tells me to use an old-timey Chinese Medicine remedy which is to do something that will lead me to sweat, creating a self-induced fever, attacking the virus before it replicates so much that my immune system has to join the battle. I think two hours on my bicycle yesterday would qualify. At the very least, I so enjoyed the sun and breeze.

      Carry on in grace

  4. Dang! Rocking and Rollin’! Praying that all the SB folks in Idaho and NW Montana are safe. It was definitely felt in Flathead region of Montana….

    1. I didn’t feel it here, farther north, somewhere west of the Rockies. Neither did the girls or Jim. :(. I think we were eating dinner at the time it occurred.

  5. I just got an alert 7:35 PM USGS that there was a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in Southern Idaho!!!

    Around 10-12 miles away from Stanley.

    Is everyone OK??

  6. Mar_13:8  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

    idaho,utah,nevada,s. america…etc..etc…

    prepare now or pay later if you know what i mean…

  7. Earthquakes can be so strange. Down in southern Appalachia, I was sitting in my chair, and felt the floor shake a little and a shelf next to me rattled. I was certain it was an earthquake, and turned out to be a 3.4 nearly 100 miles away in northern Tennessee, No one else around me felt it, but on the USGS map, evidently people felt it as far south as Alpharetta GA.
