Truly massive thunderstorms coming through again tonight. If this doesn't get us out of drought conditions, nothing will. Most of last night I had everything electric shut down, as the power was going in and out the whole time. Tonight the power has settled down. I guess all the trees that were ready to go over went in the previous storm.
. Now here's the odd part, lots of people wrote in praising the article and claiming they were white. Kind of like that woman who made herself up to look black and became a rising star in the NAACP. Til they found out she was white....
Some piss ant newspaper in Ohio proclaimed that anyone who flies the Southern Battle Flag is a "traitor" and should be extirpated as such. That's just a sampling of the impressive thought processes of the leftards. I eventually got tired of reading them. When all the smoke and dust clears, the people like the Governors of Alabama and South Carolina, the appeasers and their ilk, will have at least been exposed. Our monuments may be defaced, our cemeteries desecrated, but I think Southern resolve will be hardened.
I noticed there was a counter demonstration down in Charleston, 10 guys with Confederate battle flags who were immediately attacked by a mob of 30 or more "African Americans." They put up a good fight, but strangely enough, the only people arrested for "disorderly conduct" were from the group of 10. The video clearly shows them to have been defensive, but I guess you can't get in trouble for arresting white people, unlike what happens when you arrest a black person. And after all, that shows the black folks the police are of "the right party."
If I sound angry, I am. But I'm trying to be philosophical about it.
I can't convince the leftards and their minions they are wrong about us. Nor would I take the trouble to do so if I could.
The thing to do is just acknowledge that you have enemies, and take it in stride.
Here's a book you need to go with your shortwave:
If you have a shortwave for emergency situations, this is the book you need. It lists, by day and time, most of the regular transmitting stations you could hope to pick up, from national radio outfits to the crazy preacher ranting in his barn. If there's no television, no internet, you may be hard put to get news and that will be the one thing you really need, because you can't store it and you need it to be fresh all the time. Maybe brother Nathaniel transmitting in his little barn radio station can't tell you much about world events but he can tell you what's happening in his location, and that might be important. The only downside of this book is it lists EVERYTHING, in every language under the sun, so you have to tediously go through it looking for English broadcasts.
It costs about 5 bucks in digital edition, and you can print the sections you want in hard copy if you have no way of powering your digital device. With a little prior planning you can power something like a laptop or tablet using a solar panel specially designed for that, but printing is always an option if you can afford the $38.00 cartridges.
I have been told of a movie called Collapse that looks good. It was another of those that was privately financed, came out in 2013 and was never in general release. You can buy copies on E Bay for $12.00 plus $2.00 S&H. I found a trailer, couldn't embed it, but here's the link.
I should mention that there are an awful lot of movies called "Collapse" so you have to be careful you are getting the movie about the two kids and TEOTWAWKI if you order a copy.
Had lunch with a doctor who is a former Army LRRP dog handler. The guy is a Viet Nam vet, about two years older than me. I was impressed. Neither of us are "joiners" but we agreed to cooperate in so far as possible when it happens. Once I get my good base unit back into operation I am pretty sure we can communicate on SSB. If nothing else, I am building a network of like minded souls in my immediate vacinity and that's heartening. The more people you cautiously communicate with, the more you learn are survivalists. People are discrete, but as the country slides further into the abyss more and more people are tentatively putting out feelers.
