Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — October 14, 2020

The Cuban Missile Crisis began on October 14, 1962, bringing the United States and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear conflict. Photographs were taken by a high-altitude U-2 spy plane and offered incontrovertible evidence that Soviet-made medium-range missiles were in Cuba. These missiles were capable of carrying nuclear warheads and were stationed 90 miles off the American coastline.

Today we present Part 2 of a guest article written by our friends and fellow bloggers, Don and Patrice Lewis. Patrice Lewis is the North Idaho-based Editrix of the excellent Rural Revolution homesteading blog. I strongly recommend bookmarking it. She is a regular columnist for WorldNet Daily. Patrice is also the author of a large series of “how-to” homesteading mini books, the nonfiction book The Simplicity Primer, and the co-author of How to Start a Home-based Craft Business. Most recently, Patrice branched out into writing Amish-themed Christian romance novels. The first of these is the highly-rated book The Amish Newcomer.

    “I found what I thought were bobcats on the trail during a run. Turns out they were cougar cubs and their mother was not happy to see me. She follows me for over six minutes acting very aggressive while I walk backwards up the trail. Very scary cougar encounter.”

  2. re:
    “Russia missiles CRISIS in Cuba!”

    Was that CRISIS brought to us by the same MainStreamMedia announcing the eminent demise of millions CRISIS from this latest influenza?
    And the ‘unsafe at any speed’ CRISIS of the General Motors Corvair affordable economy-car?
    And the exploding fuel-tanks CRISIS on pick-up trucks for the working class?
    And the Pinto fuel-tanks CRISIS on the Ford Motor Company affordable economy-car?
    Bay Of Tonkin CRISIS?
    And the ‘single bullet’ gymnastics of a CRISIS day in 1963 Dallas?

    Sounds legit.

    1. although the media of the 60’s was still left leaning it was nowhere near as bad as today. you could actually trust most of what they were saying still back then that isn’t a reality now….
