SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “HJL”. More reasons why you really want to get your kids out of public school are in the news today. This type of reprehensible behavior is becoming almost a daily occurrence in the news cycle.
Reader H.L. sent in the link to this article that accurately describes the relationship between socialism and a ruling oligarchy. the idiots who desire to overthrow the oligarchy in favor of socialism don’t understand that they are actually doing the bidding of that very oligarchy. It seems counterintuitive, but history bears it out. Every socialist revolution promises a better government. Of course, first you have to install the necessary dictatorship. Unsurprisingly, the socialist never makes it past that point. It’s the same old oligarchy, but under a different name.
Reason #5035 To Leave Public School
It’s difficult to add any commentary to these headlines. They pretty much speak for themselves. Remember, these are the authority figures that you entrust your children to when you send them off to school. These are the figures who are considered guardians of your child during the day. Thanks to reader F.M. for the links.
John Cycl wrote an excellent article on the Second Amendment in light of the recent evil perpetrated upon Las Vegas: Call to Disarm Citizens Violates Natural Rights. Excerpt: “While most of the country mourned the dead, prayed for all of the victims and sought answers as to “why,” the anti-Second Amendment and gun control crowd immediately started their impossible demands. Their assumptions and imaginations could not wait for facts.”

If it wasn’t Hitlery, it would be Michael. Michael Moore proposes change to Constitution that ‘repeals the ancient and outdated 2nd Amendment’. Michael obviously has trouble understanding that muskets were the state-of-the-art weapon used by the military in that time. If the Second Amendment were written today, it would certainly include language that was inclusive of the AK-47 and M-4.
Reader DSV sent in this article on how to stop your devices from listening to (and saving) everything you say. This is a good primer on some basic apps that people like that easily violate your privacy in ways you may not expect. It’s a good first step to take before you are ready to take Snowden’s recommendation of burning your microphone out of your phone (thus permanently voiding the phone’s warranty.)
Great Britain Threatens 15 Years in Prison for Repeatedly Watching ‘Terrorist Material’ Excerpt: “The UK is clearly embracing pre-crime here, since it’s clear someone watching terrorist propaganda in the privacy of their own home does not harm anyone else. Thus, this is a victimless crime, and as I’ve maintained on many occasions, I do not believe such a thing exists. If there’s no victim, there’s no crime.” – Remember that there is no such thing as the first or Second Amendment in the UK.

Please send your news tips to HJL. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who watch news that is important to them.
