A Mosquito Bite away from an epidemic

I've written before about just how fragile and how easy it is for there to be a major epidemic not just in our nation, but worldwide. 

Now we have a few rather disturbing stories which you really should read and take into consideration.

Mosquito-borne virus sickens 20 in NJ

Ebola outbreak: Victim who sparked fears of global epidemic was on way home to US

Ebola is carried by fruit bats and pigs. Can it be transmitted by mosquitoes?

There are many viruses and parasites that can be transmitted by mosquito bites. Who is to say it might not be possible to transmit Ebola that way? With our porous border and thousands of unscreened people getting in to our country that just puts us more at risk of an outbreak.

Can we prevent it? Yes, but the politicians in D.C. have to want to do so. Instead we have a leadership that is exploiting our border problems for political gain. Disregarding the possibility that we could have a major outbreak of many communicable diseases.

What do they care? All they will do is blame the Republican party, and the media will support that.

Scamming and stealing from our Troops

"USA Discounters files lawsuits against service members based anywhere in the world, no matter how much inconvenience or expense they would incur to attend a Virginia court date. Since 2006, the company has filed more than 13,470 suits and almost always wins,"

I once fell into this same trap.  I was young, married and my wife and I had recently had a child.  A $350.00 washing machine wound up costing me over $2100.00 once everything was said and done.

Even with special laws aimed at protecting our servicemen and servicewomen and their families, there are always some companies that will use any loophole they can find to take advantage of them.

And our young troops and their families pay the price.

Hmmm new gunstore and some other interesting things

A friend of mine just told me about a gunstore in Rochester, PA.  He said his hands itched with every firearm he handled.  He didn't purchase any new firearms but he did get a few other things.  So if you are in the area gives these guys a visit.

John Brown's Armory

Then another friend, actually group of friends, always use these next people for their home security  needs.   When I say a group, I mean over a dozen people.  Many of them Engineers or in the field in one way or the other.  So if they recommend these guys, that's good enough for me.


And finally a friend dropped a link to this forum about budget helping ideas/tips and tricks

Budget 101 Tips and Tricks

SO if you know of any unique links send me an e-mail or leave a comment.  If it looks interesting I"ll probably write up a post.

Prayers for recovery for WiscoDave

I had to find out from Kenny that WiscoDave tore up his arm.  I already sent him a nasty gram to be sure he lets me know stuff like this.

But he was supposed to have had the surgery on his arm yesterday.

Explains it in more detail, when Davegets back to me I'll let everyone know.

So some prayers he recovers well would be appreciated.

How they make Ramen Noodles

The first thing you see is the dough coming out and going over a series of rollers to ensure the dough is the right thickness and to allow the dough to rest.

Then you see it get cut into strips and cut again into the smaller wiggles.  Yes those are actually cut, not forced through die to form the noodles.

Then through a steam oven to cook the dough into noodles

After they are steam cooked they are cut and put into trays and baked/dried slightly for the next step.

Which is frying to get rid of the remainder of the water and make the noodles crisp and preserved for packaging.

After frying they are inspected and head down to packaging where they sauce packet is placed on the noodles and it runs through the packager.

After it goes through the packager and the ends are heat sealed the noodles are boxed up and sent out..

I found this video through a video posted at The Ramen Rater

Now I can tell you about how this is done because many many years ago I worked at an Onion Ring Factory.  Which was owned by Foodbrands, then Tyson then 2 other companies I can't remember.  I think one of them was USF. 

But part of my training as a Fryer Operator was watching a video of a Ramen Noodle Plant where they showed the entire making of Ramen noodles.  However they had a fire in the fryer hoods and my training was on how to deal with that as the people at the Ramen plant didn't do it properly and they lost their building to the fire.

We had a few fires in our hood system as well, but we had those put out before the Fire Department even left their station.  All we needed was the Fire Marshal to sign off on our repairs and ok us to go back to work.

Ladies do you have problems getting your jeans on?

My daughter says "Yes, it IS just like that sometimes"

Border Crises - How soon until our Agents are getting killed?

"RINCON PENINSULA, Texas -- U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told

The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said. Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told

Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert's account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber weapons." 

They don't know how many people got across.  They don't know what if anything they were carrying.  They don't know if it was Central Americans or others.

They don't know SQUAT.

 I'm just praying that a biological weapon or something else did NOT just come across our border.

This is unusual -

Normally there are anywhere from 30 to over 100 military vehicles available for auction at any time.  And yet when I go to check the auction page you see the above notice and NO M35's, M818's or any of those types of vehicles are listed.

I wonder why....

Bill Whittle - Afterburner - Apogee: America Needs Another Challenge

Modification to the KTD Project

I've been working on a modification to the KTD Project and I need some assistance with it.

If you will remember the KTD Project is a bootable USB Thumbdrive running Knoppix, which is a version of Debian Linux which boots most PC's from a USB Port.  It has the old CD3WD Third World Technology Files and a set of Extra files, mostly US Military Manuals on it.

I have been experimenting with using Micro SD memory cards that hold just the CD3WD files and the Extra files I put together on it.

My thoughts were to create a .ISO image which can be burned to the Micro SD card and then used in either an Android Cell Phone OR an Android Tablet.

I'm finding that the browser on my Android 2.2 Tablet and on my Android 2.3.7 Cell Phone won't read/access the files correctly.

So does anyone know a work around to allow the browser to view the files directly from the phone/tablet?

Also if anyone would like to help test the new version on their own Android based phone or tablet, I would appreciate the help.

If you are an App developer or would like a copy of the KTD Project on a Micro SD card for your android device please send me an e-mail through the Greylocke e-mail address over on the right side of the page under where it says "Send a Missive"  If you are reading this on your phone or mobile device you can also click on my name below and go to my user profile where my e-mail is also listed.

If you want the KTD Project on a Micro SD card you will have to send me a new still in the package 32 GB Micro SD card and a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope.  I will burn the ISO to the Micro SD card and mail it back to you.

As part of your payment for this, you will need to test the files and let me know how well you can access the files, if there are any glitches or holes.

I would really like to put out an updated .ISO of this project by Mid August.

I also would like to set up ways to spread the project even further with KTD Party's  Where one or two people bring in laptops with the .ISO on them and they can burn the .ISO's to people who attend own Micro SD or USB Thumbdrives.

If you are interested in that part as well, please send me an e-mail also.

I am still working on the UTD-1A project however I need someone local to me who has CNC Tooling and/or a 3D Printer to help me with that.

Again, if you want to help with that, send me an e-mail.

And for my NEXT Project.

I need help putting together a Free Reference and Education Library.

I would like to put together a complete library for everyone from Homesteaders/Preppers/Home-schooler's.

With Copyright Free texts on everything from small engine mechanics and repairs to veterinary and everything in between including a full k-12 education.  I'd like it to include a full free modern encyclopedia and other reference materials, Unabridged Dictionary, Thesaurus, PDR, etc.

That is a MAJOR challenge.  And not one I can easily do myself.  So if you can or know of someone who might be able to help, please once again, send me an e-mail.

If you are an educator and would like to provide some input, I'd be glad to have it.  If you can help assemble the proper texts that are free I'd be even more glad to have your help.

I know this would have to be in sections and sub-sections and that right there is where I need a lot of help.  To ensure everything goes into it's proper place.

And this project will be FREE.

It just needs to be downloaded.  I'm hoping to be able to fit it onto a 32 GB SD/Micro SD or USB Thumb Drive like the KTD Project.

The largest problem I'm seeing with it after assembling all of the information is to make it easily searchable so people can find the information they need quickly and easily.

Just another thing I'll need help with.

So please if you think you might be able to help with any of my projects, send me an e-mail.

I don't get paid for any of this and I try to do as much of this myself that I can.  But I also know I have limits to just what I can and cannot do.  So I need help.

Anti-Gun Kalifornia at it again

"The California state Senate sees their share of interesting and controversial legislation proposals. One of the most recent bills, Assembly Bill No. 1014, is one which, if passed, would permit the secret seizure of a California state resident’s guns, after just one complaint that they pose a risk of committing an act of violence."

Even if no crime or actually threat has been committed or issued, the law would make it that one complaint and the person suspected would lose all of their firearms.

Personally I think someone should complain about Diane Feinstein.

Border Security

Remember THIS post I wrote a few days ago? And remember this OTHER post?  Where I write about certain things being found but NOT appearing on the news, or being talked about in other places.

Well now there is something written about it.

“We’ve found Korans, prayer rugs and many other unusual items at the border that certainly raise concern,” the agent said."

That's about 85-100 miles from my house.  And it's STILL not on the major news channels.  Why is that?

Who would have the authority to STOP information like that from getting out?

Someone like James Clapper and the Administration.  (That links to HuffPo sorry)

What ELSE isn't being reported?  What hasn't been told not just to the media or by the media, but what hasn't been told to Congress?

How much are we being kept in the dark about this?

And how much is known that  is being suppressed?

Ohio Ordinance's M1918A3 BAR

Some more information about the BAR at Wikipedia; M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle

I personally would like to have the FN Model DA1 which is the BAR with a pistol grip and setup for a quick change barrel system and easier stripping through the rear of the receiver.  I"d like one cut down like Bonnie and Clyde did with their BAR's.

Ian did a write up of the Model D BAR's here; FN Model D (BAR)

So what do you think?

A cut down BAR with quick change barrel and a pistol grip that weighs about 14 lbs and chambering 7.62X51, with good sights and possibly a picatinny rail for optics.

Would it make a decent General Purpose rifle?

Men and Womens shopping explained

Another Government Agency

From Freefall

The guys from Moss Pawn

have gone out to the range to test whether 9mm can be an effective round past 100yards.  And the find out it is.

No surprise really.  As I and many other blogger have said and will always say, it is shot placement and not the caliber which is the most effective.  Even .25 ACP is effective in the hands of someone who places the rounds into the target properly.

However Eric seemed to be surprised that at 440 yards the 9mm was able to penetrate the ballistics gel dummy.  I've seen a hog get shot with a 9mm at almost 600 yards and it only took 1 Federal Hydrashock to take done the hog.  It was out of a Colt Ar-15 9mm Carbine and he said he aimed about 3 feet above the hog, but 1 round did take it down.

So remember, even a "Pip-Squeak" gun can do the job.  If the shooter does theirs.

We are a plane ride away from an epidemic or pandemic

"The worst outbreak of Ebola moved to Sierra Leone’s capital of Freetown where an Egyptian was found with the city’s first confirmed case of the disease.

The unidentified Egyptian national had traveled from Kenema, the largest city in the nation’s Eastern Province, and checked into a clinic east of Freetown, Sidie Yahya Tunis, director of Information, Communication and Technology at the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, said by phone today. The person was moved back to the Ebola center in Kenema, he said."

All it would take is one person who is infected getting on a plane and possibly infecting an entire plane load of passengers.

Ebola is not an airborne Virus, however one person infected could possibly infect one of the flight crew and then you have the makings of an epidemic or possibly pandemic

The Spanish Flu of 1918 was a pandemic.  The Black Death of 1346-1353 was a pandemic.  Plague has surfaced here in the US in San Francisco California in 1900-1904.

Right now Ebola is an epidemic in Africa.  However as I said above, it is one plane trip away from possibly becoming a pandemic and killing or sickening millions of people.

Right now we have immigrants coming into the US testing positive for Tuberculosis, Scabies, and who knows what else.

Remember all it takes is one person to transmit any one of these diseases.  And right now, with the borders of the EU, the US and many other countries being so porous expect outbreaks to happen worldwide.

Personally I'm expecting the main outbreak of TB and possibly a resurgence of Smallpox to happen in Mexico within the next 4-6 months.  And then we will find it migrating into the US through our porous southern border.  We might also start to see recurrences of the plague as well once again starting in California due to the Scabies outbreak that I'm sure will be happening in the next 2-3 months.  The mites like fleas can travel greatly, especially in packed buses just full of people in close physical contact.

Note this.  I am making these predictions based on various things I've researched.  News articles, scientific journals, talking to border patrol agents and law enforcement, talking to local health care workers.

So if any of my predictions come true don't think I had anything to do with it.  I'm just basing my predictions on what I'm seeing and reading and hearing.

Oh and the smallpox prediction comes from several sources,even though it is supposed to be eradicated there are other forms of it, such as Monkey Pox, which IS human transmissible.  As well as Bird Flu, Swine Flu and many others.  And there may be parts of the Small Pox virus latent inside humans just waiting for the switch to flip and become active again.

What can cause that switch to flip?

Crowded, humid, filthy living conditions.  Lack of proper medical care or hygiene. Thousands of people in close contact in those condition could cause a switch to flip.

And you have your next super virus that could kill thousands and possibly millions of people.

And what is our government doing to prevent this?

Not a damn thing.  In fact they are bringing about the conditions which are almost certain to flip the switch, all for some political gain.

What can you do?

The largest thing you can do to help prevent yourself and your family getting sick is also the easiest.

Personal hygiene.

Keep yourself, your homes, places of work as clean as possible.  Bathe daily, wash your clothes properly using the hottest water you can.  Keep your kitchen and food preparation areas as clean as possible, use diluted bleach to wipe down surfaces.  Wash your hands constantly.  You don't NEED to use an anti-bacterial soap, just plain soap and hot water will do the job.  Use paper towels to dry your hands, damp washcloths are just breeding ground in warm, humid bathrooms.

Get some filter masks and keep them handy.  I keep 2 N-95 masks and 5 pairs of nitrile gloves in the cargo pocket of my shorts in a ziplock bag if I need them.  I also keep a small bottle of alcohol based hand sanitizer in the pocket as well.  If you go to the Dr's office/emergency room/hospital for ANY reason wear a mask.  That is where sick people go, and you don't want to get sick.

If you get any cuts or scrapes take care of them properly.  Use betadine or alcohol to clean them not hydrogen peroxide and cover them with a clean bandage.  Change your bandage several times a day and keep it clean.

You want to take as many preventative measures as you can to keep from getting sick.  You will note I carry hand sanitizer with me.  Have you noticed how many chain store restrooms don't have "HOT" water?  At best they have lukewarm water.  That won't kill germs.  They want to save money on the electric or gas bill so the hot water isn't hot.  So use a hand sanitizer.

Make sure yours and your families immunizations are all up to date.  And get your yearly physical while you are at it including the blood work.

Just in case what I'm praying doesn't happen DOES happen, make sure your paperwork is all up to date.

Your will, power of attorney for your kids, in case something should happen to you.  Do you have funeral insurance?  Do you want to be buried or cremated?  If you don't have the documentation your family won't know.  So get it all in writing.  Make sure your and your families birth certificates and social security cards are secured.  My families paperwork is in a fireproof safe and I have a key and my mother has a key. 

Just in Case.

Remember that phrase.

Just in Case.

That is why you are making all these preparations.  Just in Case something DOES happen. 

You won't be taken by surprise and can possibly mitigate the effects as much as possible.

There is probably a lot I haven't covered and you might have ideas or suggestions.  Well that's what the comment section is for.

So chime in.

I have spoken many times of the saying I have over on the right side of my blog.  And I've referenced them many times.  I got an e-mail from someone who reads my blog through the mobile version on their cell phone, so all they see is the main posts.  They can't see any of the sidebars.  So they asked me to post all of the sayings I have listed under Specialization.  Well Darna, here they are. 

And yes a couple of them are from me.

Life is not a race where you acquire things.  Life is a journey where you acquire experiences to share with others.

-Mark (GreyLocke) Anderson 12/29/2013

“Political tags–such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth–are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”
– Robert A. Heinlein

“Men by their constitutions are naturally divided into two parties: 1. Those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes. 2. Those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them, cherish and consider them as the most honest and safe, although not the most wise depositary of the public interests. In every country these two parties exist, and in every one where they are free to think, speak, and write, they will declare themselves. Call them, therefore, Liberals and Serviles, Jacobins and Ultras, Whigs and Tories, Republicans and Federalists, Aristocrats and Democrats, or by whatever name you please, they are the same parties still and pursue the same object. The last one of Aristocrats and Democrats is the true one expressing the essence of all.”

Why I listen to a scanner

As you may have read from some of my tweets and earlier posts, I have at least 1, but usually 2 scanners running 24 hours a day.  Part of it is to keep an "ear" out.  Out where I live, the power can go out quite easily, usually from someone missing the turn and hitting the power pole a quarter mile away.  Other times there have been fire and ambulance calls on my street and many times I've had to go out and give proper directions to them to get to the right house.  There are a lot of small rental properties out here and while the street address might  be 123 XX street at 123 XX street there might be as many as 9 Units or Lots.  And the EMS and Fire people don't know which is which.

Tonight though, I was just laying down drowsing when the one phrase that will always terrify me came over. 


I live near Corpus Christi Texas, and there are literally dozens of refineries in and dozens more within 40 miles of Corpus.  And tonight one of the LPG refineries had their gas alarm go off and one of their employees injured by a Hydrogen Sulfide leak.  And that particular refinery is only 9 miles from my house.

So I'm laying down with the lights and tv off, the dogs and my cat Tufts lying in bed with me not quite awake, not quite asleep when the scanner which had been just normal traffic, the PD and SO pulling people over, EMS being dispatched, when suddenly the alarm tones sounded.

I don't know if it's the same where you live but down here there are 6 different alarm tones they use over the radio.

One is a warning to any officers that the people they have pulled over have warrants.  A second different tone will let them know if they person they pulled over is considered a threat based on their record.  A third tone will alert ALL Deputies and Officers if there is an urgent bulletin such as a BOL, AMBER Alert, active pursuit and such.  The fourth tone or rather series of tones is for the Fire Departments to alert them and open the doors of the fire stations just like on the tv shows.  The fifth series of tones are for the EMS personal just like the Fire Department.

The Sixth set of tones.

Those are reserved for major things like large grass fires and they need EVERYONE, Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS.  When those tones go off it goes out across all 9 frequencies including the Fish and Wildlife, Navigation District, Game Wardens, Mutual Assist for the neighboring counties.  You know EVERYONE!!

Those were the tones that woke me from my drowsy slumber. with the warning of a gas leak at the refinery.

Yeah, that got me awake in about 1 millionth of a second.  From sorta sleeping to BAM! total awareness, sitting up knocking Tufts off my chest and her claws took some skin and part of my t-shirt as she fell to the floor.  Turing the scanner up and reaching for my cell phone while yelling as loud as I can for my kids to come here NOW!

The last time I heard those tones there was a grass fire that consumed over 115 acres and was finally put out literally at the bottom of my street only 65 yards from my house.

So I listen for those tones, because my family's lives might depend on us KNOWING what is going on.  When the fire was coming close to my house no one was warning residents that a big fire was heading their way and while no one was seriously hurt several people lost outbuilding and one lady lost all of her chickens and goats with almost half her house.  We lost power for several hours so my base scanner was out of commission but my two battery operated scanners and my Ham Radio HT were still up.

So here I am listening to the Police, Fire, EMS and everyone at the refinery.  They have evacuated the one injured person, the Firemen are using their airpacks/SCBA to go in to locate the leak.  Hydrogen Sulfide is very flammable and caustic.

And right as I type this the Fire Chief is calling an all clear and requesting ventilators.  You know those big giant fans they use to disperse fumes and such.

If I didn't have my scanner and the proper channels programmed in, I wouldn't have known about this or other incidents which could threaten not just my life, but my kids lives.

If I didn't know the alert tones and know them subconsciously,  I could have just slept through all of the radio traffic which let me know what is going on.

However, I do have my scanners and I do know the tones.

And because of that, when I heard the tones they woke me up automatically.  Yes I have been pulled from deep sleep from hearing certain tones come over the scanner or certain words.  I woke up when I heard my street name earlier this month when EMS was being dispatched to a neighbors house when his wife was having a heart attack.

Do you have a means of "Tuning in"?  If you do, do you know your area's 10 codes?  Do you know the Alert Tones?

If the answer to those questions is no, Why?

The Police and Fire departments probably won't have time or the man power to warn you if something happens in your area that could threaten your life.  So get the equipment and the knowledge to take a proactive stance to protect you and your family.

EPA can garnish your wages and TSA raise fees, Peter has urgent news

"The Environmental Protection Agency has quietly claimed that it has the authority to unilaterally garnish the wages of individuals who have been accused of violating its rules.

According to The Washington Times, the agency announced the plan to enhance its purview last week in a notice in the Federal Register. The notice claimed that federal law allows the EPA to "garnish non-Federal wages to collect delinquent non-tax debts owed the United States without first obtaining a court order."

If a regular bill collector needs a judgement to garnish your wages, what makes the Government think it is special and not have to follow the same laws for any so called "Bill" or "Invoice"

"ROANOKE, Va. - If you're a frequent flyer, the price you pay for tickets is going up in a matter of weeks. The hike in fares is thanks to increased Transportation Safety Administration fees, meant to keep travelers safer.

The TSA Security Screening fee or the September 11th security fee goes up on July 21st.

It's expected to jump from $2.50 to $5.60 per leg with no cap, but travelers we spoke to are on board"

And now the TSA is getting in on the act. In case you haven't figured out what these both are it has nothing to do with the environment or transportation security, and everything to do with raising money not through actual taxes that for the most part are NOT reported to Congress or the GAO.  That's right!!  Raise the rates and start stealing from any scofflaw we think we can.  It'll cost people money to try to fight this so the Government figures they'll just roll over and take it in the rear without too much squabbling.

Yup, that's right.  We are now supposed to be so cowed that we will willingly ignore more over reach by the government that DIRECTLY affects our pocketbooks.

There are no blood covered walls, you can leave any time, pay no attention to the saw sound and all of the screaming.  Everything is ok, just turn over your wallet.

And Peter links to Karl Denninger again and adds his own commentary.

"Remember this folks -- we invented out of whole cloth six times as much economic activity as actually existed. We pretended that it existed by creating credit out of thin air without anything behind it. That credit got spent on consumption exactly as if it was wealth created from past production and had exactly the same effect on stimulating demand as if the funds came from that past production.
. . .
Utterly nobody in media or government wants to deal with this. When I raised this very issue several years ago with Congressional offices (including but not limited to Cathy McMorris-Rodgers staff), particularly during the debt limit mess a few years ago, it was dismissed with complaints that we "can't" deal with that because it would mean massive spending cuts that are politically impossible."

Here is the section that should REALLY scare you.

"Germany's cabinet Wednesday approved plans to force creditors into propping up struggling banks beginning in 2015, one year earlier than required under European-wide plans that set rules for failing financial institutions."

"Prior to May 2011, Mexico's immigration policy was regulated by the highly strict General Law of Population of 1970, which had been portrayed in hypocritical light when compared to immigration policies as in the US states of Arizona or Alabama. However, on May 24, 2011, President Felipe Calderón signed the new and much more liberal Migration Law into law."

And yet Mexico's Laws are STILL stricter than the US laws. And the Mexican President has the GALL to condemn the US for it's policies.

More on the NSA and their collection of information

"For more than a year, NSA officials have insisted that although Edward Snowden had access to reports about NSA surveillance, he didn't have access to the actual surveillance intercepts themselves. It turns out they were lying.1 In fact, he provided the Washington Post with a cache of 22,000 intercept reports containing 160,000 individual intercepts. The Post has spent months reviewing these files and estimates that 11 percent of the intercepted accounts belonged to NSA targets and the remaining 89 percent were "incidental" collections from bystanders."

Mike's main site can be NFSW but he has stuff like this.  And it just goes to show just how much of our lives have been dissected by the Government through the NSA.

And it needs to S-T-O-P

Unless I and others have done something illegal, the NSA needs to get an ACTUAL Warrant, not a FUSA warrant to surveil me and mine.

Police Misconduct - MURDER

"Treavor says he had confidently assumed that an autopsy would be performed; it was also required by Florida law. However, with no logical explanation being offered, the police hurriedly shipped his body off to a funeral home and asked for it to be cremated, CBS reported. This was not only against police protocol but also against the law, and was done behind the backs of the surviving family members. By sheer luck and coincidence, the funeral home did not get to the cremation in a timely fashion — the body was there for 7 days.

After the evidence was nearly destroyed, an autopsy was performed, yielding some remarkable results. Mr. Eimers was found to have ten (10) broken ribs, as well as wounds around both ribs, the Miami Herald reported. While no official explanations were offered on the cause of death, Monroe County Medical Examiner Dr. E. Scheuerman ruled out heart attack as a cause."

From the descriptions of the eye witnesses, it sounds like the Key West Florida Police Department killed a man and are/were trying to cover up the facts.

All the more reason that the Police need to be held to a HIGHER standard.  And they need to lose their "Qualified Immunity"

Military Medical Manuals

From my previous post on privacy and the various errata I have on my cell phones SD card. I figured that some people might like to have a medical manual available on their phones for emergencies.

The link below is where I got quite a few of the medical manuals I collect like a thirsty man drinks water.

Military Medicine - Doctrinal and Instructional Manuals
"Because medical personnel will not always be readily available,
the nonmedical service members must rely heavily on their own skills and
knowledge of life-sustaining methods to survive on the integrated battlefield."

Do you like you privacy?

Did you know that just because you try to maintain your on-line privacy, you are now considered a threat by the NSA and targeted for scrutiny?

"NSA targets the privacy-conscious

von J. Appelbaum, A. Gibson, J. Goetz, V. Kabisch, L. Kampf, L. Ryge

The investigation discloses the following:

Two servers in Germany - in Berlin and Nuremberg - are under surveillance by the NSA.
Merely searching the web for the privacy-enhancing software tools outlined in the XKeyscore rules causes the NSA to mark and track the IP address of the person doing the search. Not only are German privacy software users tracked, but the source code shows that privacy software users worldwide are tracked by the NSA.
Among the NSA's targets is the Tor network funded primarily by the US government to aid democracy advocates in authoritarian states.
The XKeyscore rules reveal that the NSA tracks all connections to a server that hosts part of an anonymous email service at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It also records details about visits to a popular internet journal for Linux operating system users called "the Linux Journal - the Original Magazine of the Linux Community", and calls it an "extremist forum".

It is a small server that looks like any of the other dozens in the same row. It is in a large room devoted to computers and computer storage, just like every other room in this industrial park building on Am Tower Street just outside the city of Nuremberg. That the grey building is surrounded by barbed wire seems to indicate that the servers' provider is working hard to secure their customers' data.

Yet despite these efforts, one of the servers is targeted by the NSA.

The IP address is explicitly specified in the rules of the powerful and invasive spy software program XKeyscore. The code is published here exclusively for the first time.

After a year of NSA revelations based on documents that focus on program names and high-level Powerpoint presentations, NDR and WDR are revealing NSA source code that shows how these programs function and how they are implemented in Germany and around the world."

I KNOW for a fact that the NSA or someone from the government has been surveilling me.  How?  When my phone starts doing strange thing like suddenly the screen flashes and within 20 minutes the fully charged battery is dead.  Well someone just activated my phone and copied my full SD card.  I hope they like all of my e-books such as the FM- 31-210, FM 5-31, FM 7-20, FM 7-8, MCRP 3-40.3C, IS0871,SH 21-76, FM 3-05.213, TC 31-73, MP 1005, TC 18-01, Household Cyclopedia, ST 31-91B, FM 21-11, Boy Scouts Pioneering Manual, The entire Honor Harrington Series, Posleen Series, Paladin of Shadows series I'm missing the newest one, and a few other series of novels.  In all out of the 8 GB on my SD card over 5 of it is e-books.  2 GB is mp3's the rest is to move app off of my phone memory.  I'm planning on modifying my KTD Project so all of the main CD3WD files can be used from a 16 GB SD card.  My phone won't support a larger SD card so that's what I'm going to experiment with.

I also KNOW for a fact my kids phones have been messed with and someone has tried to hack all of the computers here at the house and the router.  I've found certain files on my son's computer that when opened with a HEX editor show some weird things.  A few friends "In The Know" have had me get rid of those files and actually over write some of my son's system files with back up copies because, their verbiage, "The HASH attributes are wrong".  I've also found many attempts to hack my router in the logs.  Two of the IP addresses resolve back US Military IP Addresses.  I seriously doubt the Navy or the Air Force would try to hack my router., and since the military usually runs pretty tight security protocols, so it's probably their buddies in the NSA, since the CIA usually uses IP addresses from the UK, Germany or the Netherlands according to my "friends".

Like I said, "I KNOW" I am under NSA surveillance.  I've visited sites and downloaded MANY programs for Net Anonymity, and Privacy.  So according to their protocols I am to be viewed as a possible "Threat"

I personally think that's funny.  To be considered a threat.  I'm a 46 year old cripple with kids and I believe that the Oath I wore in 1985 when I joined the Army Reserves still applies.  And so the NSA will waste their time watching me, and my kids instead of watching people like ohhh I don't know Drug Cartels that are getting paid to help run certain person of Middle East Extraction.  You know the ones slipping through the net at the borders because they are suddenly overwhelmed with the influx of "Unaccompanied Minors"  I know for a FACT the terrs are getting in.

Over my scanner the other day, PD in the next town over tried to pull over a van.  Van ran and finally ditched in the county I live in.  Everybody bailed.  The PD and Sheriff's office only caught 6 out of the minimum 18 people in the van.  In the van was found a bag that had newspaper from Saudi Arabia a Koran and several hundred dollars in cash.

I waited for the news that night to report it.  Never a WORD on the news.  Not on their web site, not on the papers website or in the paper, NOTHING about a group of at least 12 people one of whom was probably from the Middle East.

So why am I being surveilled?  I'm not a threat.  Yet, because I don't like the idea of people watching what I do online, according to the government, I AM a threat.

I'm sorry folks, if you want to surveil me, GET A WARRANT.  Otherwise don't bother me.

p.s. Yes in the e-books on my phone I do have the field manuals for improvised munitions, boobytraps, Infantry Maneuver, Antennas, Medical Manuals, and other errata.  The information is freely available, and just because I have the information doesn't mean I USE it.  But it is cool to read and twice information from the FM 31-210 has actually helped me with temporary circuits here in the house until the electrician got here.  I also have various construction manuals such as what is in the KTD Extra Files section on my phone.  If you look in my KTD Project though you will see I DO NOT include any of those manuals in it.  If someone wants to get them themselves though they are available in 100's of places on the web for free.

Aaaaaaannnnnndddd I am rambling.......

Needs to be reposted everywhere

My Fourth Of July Post

Posted on July 3, 2014 by Wirecutter

The Fourth has always been a special day for me. Anybody that knows me knows I’m not big on holidays. Christmas and Thanksgiving are a pain as far as preparations go and having to deal with family that doesn’t want anything to do with me the rest of the year, Easter – I’m surprised they still celebrate Easter seeing as it’s offensive to muslims and liberals, Veteran’s and Memorial day always rubbed me wrong because those are days for memories that should be thought of everyday, Labor Day is just an excuse for a barbecue, but the Fourth to me was always special because of the anniversary it represents.
Not anymore. The Fourth is nothing but a reminder of what a mess our Nation has become. Our Founding Fathers and the Citizens of that period sacrificed everything to ensure Freedom for their descendants and immigrants coming here to seek a better life for themselves and their families. There were provisions in the Constitution to prevent the new government from becoming what they were trying to get out from under. The Bill of Rights came later naming our basic human rights so that future generations wouldn’t pervert the Yellowed Paper in order to grant them powers that weren’t theirs to begin with.

Now I get up in the morning and read what the government wants me to read. If the press isn’t in lockstep with the president then they aren’t allowed in his press corp. If you file for something under the Freedom of Information Act, you see only what the government wants you to see, everything else is blacked out.
My weapons of self defense are government approved but they say if I don’t have a permit for them then they must stay at home, but at the same time the government says the police have no obligation or duty to protect me or mine.

My food has to be approved by the government. I can no longer drink raw milk or eat cheese that hasn’t been homogenized or pasteurized because evidently I don’t know what’s good for me. Even homeopathic medicines have to be government approved if I want to buy them instead of growing and harvesting them myself.

Our children are wards of the State. If they attend a public school, they learn what the government wants them to learn. The government has changed history to suit their views, not what really happened. You are not allowed to discipline your children with your own hand under threat of law. The government determines if your children are eating healthy lunches or not – not lunches from school but what Mom has packed for them.

We’re under constant surveillance. Every time I walk out of my house I have to assume I’m on somebody’s camera. Traffic cams, security cams, dash cams, you name it. My emails are being monitored by the government. My website is being monitored by the government. Every piece of mail – every piece – passing through the post office is photographed and recorded. Every phone call we make, every text we send is monitored by the NSA. Boxes on the side of the roads log in bluetooth information from passing cars to determine who’s in what car traveling down the road, where you got on the road and where you left it. Radar is monitoring our speed.

Our public lands are no longer public. The Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service determine what we can and cannot do on our own public lands and reserve the right to charge us fees for their use. If you resist you will be arrested, fined and possibly imprisoned.

Everything has to be registered. Our vehicles are registered, our animals are registered, our firearms are registered, our watercraft is registered. By the way, you can read that as taxed.

Our police have gone from being peace officers to law enforcement officers. They have the right by decree of government to search you simply by stating they believe you may have committed a crime. In some cities they can search you just because they want to. They burst into our homes, kill our dogs and search our personal belongings with only the simplest of causes. SWAT teams – a concept that was designed for hostage situations – conduct an average of 124 raids every day. Now they raid barber shops for unlicensed (read that untaxed) barbers, they’re raiding dairies suspected of selling raw milk and they’re raiding mom and pop marijuana growers.

With the NDAA and “Patriot” Act, we no longer have a right to an attorney or a Right to a speedy trial in front of a jury of our peers, in fact we no longer have a Right to a trial at all. Indefinite detention is the Plan of the Day at the pleasure of the government.

The tax man takes between 30 and 50% of our paychecks, most of it outright theft. We support, out of our paychecks and from the sweat of our brow, cash and food for those that won’t work, medical and child care for those same deadbeats, organizations through federal and state grants that we don’t morally support or agree with, wars that we may not agree with, and anything else that the government feels is necessary.
Any mention of God has been removed from our schools and government buildings even though this once-great Nation was founded on Christian principles. We can no longer pray before meetings nor can our children while at school. Our churches are regulated as far as mentioning politics. The entire “Separation of Church and State” has been twisted from not allowing the State to force a religion on us to not wanting to offend anybody by asserting our personal beliefs.

Our Nation is presently being overrun with illegal immigrants and our government who swore an oath to obey the Constitution and the Law of the Land is ignoring the law by not defending our borders. In fact, they’re encouraging these illegals to come by rewarding them with promises of a better life and citizenship. If you think this bothers you, think about the immigrants that came here legally and got pushed to the back of the line because of promises that our politicians have made.

Our politicians truly believe they are above us, forgetting that they serve us and not the other way around. We have politicians that carry firearms and surround themselves with bodyguards, yet they deny us the very basic human Right to defend ourselves by outlawing us commoners to own and carry firearms and other weapons. They break laws with impunity, yet imprison us for doing the same. They refuse to listen to the People’s desires and instead enact laws they want. We have a president that says we must conserve energy and cut down on pollutants, yet he and his family fly on Air Force One for their many vacations every year. Our fuel prices have been above $3 a gallon for a record breaking 1200 days because our president refuses to cut our dependency on foreign oil and use our own natural resources which would also provide much needed jobs for us. Our president bows to foreign Heads of State, showing them that he believes we are subservient to them. Our government has done everything it can to make sure that we, as a Nation, serves it instead of the other way around.

This is not the Nation our Founding Fathers wanted for us. I know that if they could see what we’ve turned into, they would be appalled. I know I am, and that’s the reason the Fourth holds no special place in my heart anymore.

-Kenny Lane (Wirecutter) Ceres, CA.
For the past week I’ve probably started a half dozen posts just for the one day we have to celebrate our Founding Father’s groundwork for a new, Free Nation under God. I trashed every one of them. Instead, I wrote this. I kept the language clean so that if anybody wanted to use it on their sites, they could without editing. As with anything you find here, it’s free for anybody to use. I only ask that it’s published in it’s entirety and that my name and link at the bottom be included. I WANT the government to know I wrote this.

A reminder for those of us who took an Oath

Over at Old NFO's.  I shan't excerpt it.  If you are a Veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States of America, you, like I took an Oath.  And as we all know, Oaths, don't come with expiration dates other than our own taking leave of the mortal coil.

So please click over.

End Times Harping

I have posted links to a certain novel many times.  It used to be available free from the Baen Free Library, which is where I got my my first copy.  After reading it, I went out and purchased the paperback of it.  This plus another book also from John Ringo this time with Linda Evans published by Baen Publishing as well have both made me look around at the world around myself. Coupled with my interest in Military History and how certain wars have started, they paint a very frightening promise of a possible future, yet to come.

The first novel is "The Last Centurion", and I am rereading it again.  For what may be the 5th time.  The discussions about the Ants and the Grasshoppers/Locusts and the comparisons of Lamoille County and Blackjack.  The Random Associator, the High Trust/Low Trust areas.  All of those, I read the words and think about the intentional divisiveness being fostered right now in our country.  Coupled with reports of Ebola and other health crises, and I'm wondering just what is going to happen once all the World Cups attendees get home to their own countries.

The Second book I referenced also used to be available through the Baen Free Library and after reading it I also bought a copy of it as well.

This second novel makes me look at what our government is really doing, and where the road it has set us on will lead to.

This book is "The Road To Damascus". 

Believe me, read those two novels, and look at our world today.  And then look to the history of our world.

World War One, World War Two, Kristalnacht, The Soviet Union, and hundreds of other examples.

Seriously read them and look around.

And if you still say or think that there is nothing wrong with the path we are being led down, then you are willfully blind and ignorant.

Now even more food is suspect

Peter has a link you need to check out

So much for "100% beef" . . .

Why does make me wish for the farm when all of our meat came from the very animals we raised? And it also makes me want to start my own little homestead farm to raise my own meat again.

A Two-State solution is impossible

as long as there is such intolerance and hatred as the following.

"Algemeiner: The clear majority of Palestinians polled – 60 percent, including 55 percent in the West Bank – say that their five year national goal should be “to work toward reclaiming all of historic Palestine from the river to the sea.”
Yes, despite the insistence of biased “experts” who claim that Palestinian Arabs support a two-state solution and only want peace with Israel, the fact is that a convincing majority explicitly say that the real goal is to eliminate Israel altogether.

Only 27 percent said the goal should be to “end the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza to achieve a two-state solution,” and 10 percent said, “The goal should be to work for a one-state solution in all of the land: a state in which Arabs and Jews will have equal rights in one country, from the river to the sea.”

Israel does want peace.  They don't mind the Two-State solution.  However they know that until such time as the intolerance of the radicalists is either reduced or eliminated there will be no prospect of peace.

The radicalist don't care if they start a world war, in fact many of them are actively trying to start one in their quest for total global domination by Islam in the great Caliphate.

Herd Immunity

Over at the "Nerds" there is a guest post about the Anti-Vaccinationists and the harm they are doing to the health of our kids.

Click the link below and go read it.  It is VERY informative.

"Media coverage in the 2000’s focused on isolated cases, the uncertainty about adverse events, vaccine schedule spacing, the theoretical link (and the disproving of said link) between vaccines and autism, and, in some cases, what the future might look like if vaccination rates continued to drop. The coverage in the past few years has been about that future – we are now living in an era of major communicable disease outbreaks. Measles, mumps, rubella, polio, and whooping cough are all making a comeback in a big, flashy way; Google any one and you’ll find at least several cities with major outbreaks going on at the moment."

Point on Immigration

From; A Nod To The Gods


 I knew I wasn't crazy.  I've been remembering this interview from many years ago that I read in a Playboy Magazine.  And I finally remembered enough about it to tweak my Search Terms to find a copy of it.

"The subject of this interview is an explosives expert who worked for 20 years
designing assassination devices for the CIA while holding various cover jobs
in military, research and development. While still in high school, he was
regularly approached by CIA contacts with requests for poisons, explosives,
guns, silencers and specially designed gadgets for killing or incapacitating
people. He worked his way through a number of employers during this period
and finally, ended up director of research at a large, well known firearms
manufacturer, where he continued to do work for the CIA as well as
implement Projects for the gun company, which in turn, sold its work to the

His career began in the early Fifties. In the late Sixties, he-had two heart
attacks. His absence from work in as many years due to illness finally. forced
him to quit and in 1970 he ,had his last official contact with the CIA. At this
meeting, he said he did not want to do any more work for the agency. For a
number of months, they followed him, thinking that he was running guns to
radicals or showing them how to build terrorist weapons.. They finally left him
alone, as far as he was able to tell.

To establish his credibility, I verified that he did hold the jobs he claims to
have held. In addition to this, I saw extensive documentation, of the type work
he was doing. He also showed me. several devices that he had built for the
CIA, including a modified butane 'cigarette lighter that fired a tiny poisoned
dart capable of Penetrating a heavy coat, He brought out an explosive
.22-caliber bullet, which I tested in the presence of a firearms expert. It did
explode. His activities were also verified by others in the intelligence
community, who are involved in similar fields. And, finally, he was given a
series of lie-detector tests, which indicated that he was telling the truth.

The subject wanted to remain anonymous to protect his family. Chemical and
material names have been deleted in some cases to avoid providing a "cook
book" of weapons and tactics,

Q: During the Senate select committees investigation of intelligence activities
of the CIA, chairman Frank Church was shown a "poison dart gun" by William
Colby, former CIA director. during the week of September 15, 1975, this was
shown on television and on the front pages of newspapers around the
