Coming to your town soon: Prep and prepare for stuff like this to pop up in YOUR neighborhood, brothers and sisters !! Beware... and be prepared. Learn to protect and defend.
[BTW, good quality Cinnamon extract, 1000 mg., is one of the best herbs for people who have Diabetes, according to many well studied Herbalist, IMHO, but that is ONLY, JUST my humble opinion. Try: Vitacost Herbs and Vitamins. 800-793-2601. I intend to beg, borrow or steal [joke] some more right now!]. I have heard that the best Medical advice is to: Stay healthy in the first place, and you will have a better time 'recovering from an assault at a bus stop in Detroit.
Actually, the entire chapter of Psalm 73 should be taken together, to 'flesh out' the true, complete meaning that Asaph [NOT a fable!], an INSPIRED writer of holy scripture, intended. Concerning the evil ones, which certainly includes the Christian-hating Islamic folks... this is what MUST happen, and most bible smart, well read Christians will agree, to the vicious, hateful, evil doers: verses 27-28: "For, lo, they that are far from thee [Lord] shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works."
Friends, Some have told me that I am a good writer, including my college Professor, at Gateway Tech., in Kenosha, WI., etc. And I have desired to write a few books right before I got called back to Chrysler $$$ in may of 1995, but that idea got squeezed out with other heavy priorities. For one thing, some of my doctors said it would be great 'therapy' after all I had been thru, being homeless for a short time in a harsh, dangerous, Milwaukee Winter, and that is when I finally got "to know the Lord, and got Saved." I mean: 2 tours of duty in Vietnam seemed like a 'walk in the park' compared to all the times some mean-spirited women kicked me when I was down..... Ha! Remember This: "Never, but never, kick a combat Veteran when he is down ! !" He might not be dead like you THINK! HE JUST MAY HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY AND SPUNK TO TWIST AROUND AND STICK YOU WITH HIS BAYONET ! But then, if that Vet is a Christian, he will just turn it all over to the Lord... let God deal with people in His own good time. God is merciful. Not even my own parents, nor only brother would give me a helping hand, and when I didn't even smoke or drink, and was trying hard to stay afloat. But God had other plans for me, including: taking me to the "wood shed" a few times to salvage and clean me up... lol. It's kind of like that old men's Aqua Velva skin toning lotion, commercial, where the pilot is going down in his airplane, but then he shakes some Aqua-Velva skin bracer into his hands and slaps his own face a few times, to 'wake him up !!' Ha! it was a great commercial! Oh well....
Well, ever since High School, I have kept some form/ sort of written Journal, to remember and keep tract of things, to learn from my past mistakes and compare, if I improved my methods, learning, experiences, etc. I see a pattern of sorts, and reflect upon them.... and tell myself that it MUST be ME who is making most of the same mistakes, and therefore try much harder to pull myself away from those bad, harmful, destructive habits, so I can better get along with my spouse, etc. And that is was fine, except that I tried to do it all by sheer "Will Power" -- Tom- Power-- Tom's great strength...Ha! And wondered why I kept back sliding, back into that old pit/ sewer ! BINGO....Duh! The super "Power" that I should have been using [and for FREE] is the Holy Spirit, that "Helper" that Jesus talked about before he left earth for His original Home in Heaven !! When will we all finally 'GET SMART' and ask/ use the H.S. to help us win this bitter battle over our inner, imperfect, sinful, demon inspired self.... and also dealing with the Satanic ruled world, and UN-Believing spouse ? ? ? When ? Dear Friends, when ever, how ever, what ever our challenge is, please remind yourselves and others that we can only win this present battle/ and war with our fallen flesh --- is with the help of the H.S. -- the Holy Spirit. We pray TO: the Father- Jehovah, [YHWH] --[Yahweh], THOUGH: the Son, Jesus Christ, FOR: the Holy Spirit. We also PRAY TO: God the Father, to ask Him for things, to praise and worship Him, beg Him for forgiveness, etc. I know that this is just a 'redundancy' for most of You fellow Believers-- born again, Christians... and thank you for your patience. But in hopes of finding/ contacting yet others who are 'new' -- I must sometimes use the basic language to set things straight. Smile !
Now, as to the picture of another low life, Satanic goof ball, who likes to stab people at the bus stops... I honestly believe-- THINK that most good folks would somehow WANT to protect themselves from 'Obama-protected' criminals like this jerk face below. Well, most of us don't wear bullet proof 'Body Armor' and carry a Military assault rifle [of which Obama just tried to ban some of the Ammo !], like the AR-15 [which was originally made to only WOUND the enemy... duh. and our enemy at that time in Vietnam had a much better assault rifle, the AK-47 !!].
You know, friends, the reason why people were so much more kind, gentle, and respectful, in the old days, 1800's and 1900's, was because many folks carried a gun ! And as many were also concealed, you didn't know who was armed, so you just didn't want to take a chance of offending a stranger, which harsh words or sarcasm. For that same reason, today, people ought not "flip you the dirty finger out of their car, in anger..." as you could lose your life! Yes, being Christian and holding your temper does have it's advantages.
Ladies and Gentlemen: Please let me confess, today, two days before my 66th birthday, when my lovely wife has made arraignments to be hundreds of miles away, visiting [AGAIN] her new grand daughter U.P. North, instead of spending 'QUALITY TIME' with her hubby, dining out, on good beef steak, etc. near home.... and I could say a lot more.... SORRY. But, I am so far from perfect too, a nasty, old, beat up, too well aged and Disabled Veteran, wish I was already up in heaven, only thru the merits of my Lord, Jesus' painful sacrifice on the Cross, 1900 some years ago. I live and breathe for the RAPTURE, dear brothers ! But, instead of just laying around, wishing, I need also to be more productive, fulfilling my duty as all Christians SHOULD, sharing the Gospel, as I post in this most humble Blog, so often. I also need to call and encourage my older friends, who are also super stressed out, bombarded by the daily flood of terrible things happening in the 'News' -- half of it that I believe. When, and if we lose the InterNet, we will be totally messed up [screwed and tattooed, sorry to be so graphic...]. Now do you understand how important the H.S. [Holy Spirit] IS and will be, when we shall be in the darkness of a truly Socialist Gov't ??? And if that's not enough to worry you all this day, we should expect to see a totally new currency in our country soon enough too! Ha ! I bet some of you wish you would not have starting to read my post today. BUT, there is always that, " BUT IT IS GOOD FOR ME TO DRAW NEAR TO GOD." --- Psalm 73: 28. If we stay busy in the Lord, and do His desires, things will go better for you and I. Satan is really pulling out all the blocks and stops to haul us down and break us.... and don't I know it ? I am sure that the good pastor needs all the prayers that we can muster too, because he is one of the dirty old devil's prime targets too. I have seen, close, good friends, pastors give in to lust, in the past, and go the wrong way to cheat on their wives and bring all kinds of pain and disgrace upon themselves and totally mess up the entire congregation... and I felt so sorry for them and hurt, never, ever poking fun at them, for I know how vulnerable and frail we humans are !! We can all fall, but PLEASE know that we can also be forgiven and get back with God!
Let us all bond together now, quickly, to HELP one another, pray often, and forgive freely.
Warm Regards, and Christian Love, and Hugs,
The Spices of LifeWhen packing your bug-out or evacuation bags, it often is worthwhile to find items that have multiple uses. This saves on space and weight and cuts down on the amount of items you need to carry. This also applies to food items.
Here are three food items that you may not have thought of, but have multiple uses and you should include in your Go bags.
SaltThough these three items are usually considered cooking essentials, they have more uses than just for cooking.
Salt can be used for anything from putting out grease fires to preserving meat, but there’s only a couple of aspects of salt that we’re interested in most. Salt is a vital nutrient and without salt in your diet, your body loses the ability to regulate critical functions. It also can flavor wild and foraged foods to make them more palatable.
We all know the value of having sugar, and having some of this in your pack can make the instant coffee or tea taste much better. This also comes in handy when making pine tea or other foraged herb. According to this study sugar may also heal wounds faster, as it has antibacterial properties.
Of the three, baking soda probably stands out as the oddest thing to pack in your Go bags. There are scores of household uses for baking soda, but a few we’re interested in include using it as an antacid and to relieve itch and irritation from bites, stings and rashes.
Individually, these three items have enough merit to include with your evacuation and survival kits, but there are also some great combinations that you can use these for.
Salt and baking soda makes a good toothpaste that is very shelf stable. You can leave out the toothpaste and simply brush with this old-fashioned mixture.
Probably the most important use is when you combine all three of these together to create an electrolyte mix. When you’re sweating a lot or have a diarrheal illness, you need to replace theelectrolytes that you’re losing. Mixing up all these of these components into 1 liter or quart of water creates an electrolyte replacement drink: 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Separately, any of these three items would be a valuable addition to your pack, but mixed together, they can become a life-saving mixture.
For those that are of the curious type, here is some information on how valuable salt has been in US history: Salt Trade, Trails, and Wars.
The Importance of Electrolyte ReplacementDehydration during a survival situation can result in severe illness and even death. In 8 Reasons to Drink Water for Survival, I wrote about why water is important. Equally important to drinking water, however, is understanding what to do if you have gone for a long period without sufficient water, or as Rob points out, water loss due to diarrhea (it happens, especially if drinking foul, unfiltered water).
Let me repeat the recipe for this simple electrolyte replacement drink:
Simple Electrolyte Replacement Drink
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
Mix in a quart (or liter) of water and drink when dehydrate

A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police. Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.What’s the over-under on Obama giving a prime time speech to support the victims?
Both of the victims were standing at the bus stop outside of Detroit with the suspect on Saturday, Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said. Several people there “engaged in conversation” until the suspect, identified by Hawkins as 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “asked some of the folks there if they were Muslims.”
Two of them answered, the chief told The Post on Tuesday: They were not Muslims.
“[Thomas] was not not happy with that answer,” Hawkins said. Shortly after, “without provocation,” Thomas pulled out a 3-inch folding knife “and attacked one of them,” Hawkins said.
Both victims are in their early 50′s. One was stabbed five times in the attack. The other was stabbed in the hand as he tried to stop the attack, Hawkins said. Both were released from the hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”
