The wealth and prosperity of our Country is rapidly declining at an alarming rate.  The policies of those in government has driven America compare viagra cialis levitra side effects deep into debt. We have also lost our manufacturing capabilities.  The majority of our products are produced in China.

As the US declines, China is rising. China has now surpassed the US as the strongest economy.  We are in serious trouble.

It is unfortunate that much of the younger generation does not understand the extent to which our nation has declined in prosperity.  In the golden age, a working husband was able to supply enough money to purchase a new home, a new car, food on the table, clothing, entertainment, and have enough to put money in the bank.  Over a period of time, it required both the husband and the wife to work. But they were still relatively prosperous. The slow decline in prosperity, however, continued.  Today, it takes both the husband’s and wife’s income just to make ends meet.  They are also often working harder, longer hours, and sometimes two jobs.

Even with two incomes, many are unable to pay the bills. As a result, millions of America’s have lost their homes.  As the decline continues, it will be impossible to make ends meet.  We will all become slaves to the elite, international bankers.  American citizens have become chattel property.  The decline in prosperity has also put a heavy debt burden on every American man, women, and child.  Eventually we will lose all our prosperity along with our freedom and liberty.

Once they collapse the United States and totally destroy our  Constitution, they will create their global one world government.  Unless we resist, we will all be sucked up into their international empire as lowly slaves – if they allow us to live.

Many are hoping that a new President will save America.  It is good to be hopeful, but I would not hold my breath.  I recommend that you keep on prepping.  Buy the equipment, gear, supplies, and other items you need in order to survive.  It is also a good time to keep honing your survival skills.

As a self defense and firearm instructor, I also recommend that you start training more seriously.  It is hard to imagine, but a radical extremist attacked several women at their place of employment and decapitated one of them.  How could this happen in America?  And obama wants to disarm us.

Keep training and learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones, lives may depend on it.

Unless something is done our Nation will be doomed. Let’s hope for the best and prepare for the worse.

This is part two of the “World’s Greatest Survival Vest” In part two, the concept of Urban Survival is highlighted. As a prepping/survival instructor, I teach both Urban Survival and Bugging Out.

Let me help you face reality by exposing the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

One of the difficulties of Urban Survival is trying not to draw too much attention. Ideally you don’t want to be seen. The current myth is to be a “gray man” and blend in. In reality, depending on the scenario, blending in could be practically impossible.

In the worse case scenario, being an Urban Survivalist is not as easy as many preppers and instructors want you to believe. Urban Survival is a challenge that will take extraordinary skills.

Some well known gun instructors in South Florida have jumped on the Urban Survival bandwagon. For the most part they are pretty much idiots. Unfortunately, I know them and they are pretty pathetic, but they are a fortune for their classes and are raking in the dough.  The saddest part is that there are a few people who come from out of state to hear his hype.  Although he claims to have inside government secrets and military expertise, he is little more than a  blowhard.  Not the best shooter either.

The point of warning you about various instructor is to help you hang

on to your wallet, and to start engaging common sense.

One of my missions when I teach prepping/survival is to help individual face reality by expose the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

Prepper College Forum

When preppers get together, its inevitable that they will engage in the “bugging out” conversation. This entails discussions of bug out bags, bug out gear, bug out strategies and tactics, bug out vehicles, and bug out locations.

These conversations can be pretty interesting and enlightening. The conversations can also be frustrating for some beginning preppers who start to realize how https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/viagra-online/ much they

still have to do. The amount of preparation that is needed to bug out can be daunting. In fact, many preppers freak out and start thinking they will simply bug in or shelter in place and choose to be urban survivalists.

Bugging in or sheltering in place can be an acceptable option, and for some people their only option. But giving up on a bug out plan and strategy should not be your reason for choosing to bug in. Bugging out has some real advantages over bugging in, or urban survival. So before you decide to bug in or bug out, you really need to learn a great deal more.

My own strategy is to bug out, but I have also become an expert at bugging in. Depending on circumstances, I will have the skill sets and supplies to stay or go – to bug in or bug out. And that is the option that I teach. Be able to do both.

Since this is a forum on bugging out, I will give you some insights into what you need to know and start posting more material on the subject. But keep in mind, reading about it and not acting is worthless. Having a road map in your car will not transport you to your destination. You need to take action by starting the car and driving towards the destination. The same with prepping and bugging out, information is the beginning step. Then you need to start applying the information.

When I teach classes, I start by sharing information. Then I move into the hands on part of a course, where you actually have a chance to apply the knowledge. This method I use for self defense and firearm training, survival training, and prepper training. Knowledge and practice are what develop a skill set.

So if you are a beginning prepper, do not be frustrated. Learning how to do anything including bugging out is a simple step by step process. Like eating an elephant, you do it one bite at a time.

Smith & Wesson Knife Review by Patriot Prepper

ipad users can view the video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KX5uEr319pw

Smith & Wesson Knife is acknowledged https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/vente-viagra/ as one of the greatest gun makers in the world. But how do Smith & Wesson knives stack up when compared to other blades? In this in-depth review, Patriot Prepper gives you the low down on S & W knives.

Patriot Prepper owns over 30 Smith and Wesson knives and has used some of them on a daily basis. With the low cost of their knives, it is possible to have multiple blades to place in bug out bags, vehicles, your home, and your retreat.

Smith & Wesson knives are designed for tactical use, but are highly usable in a utility role. In the personal opinion of Patriot Prepper, the quality of S & W knives are not on par with S & W guns. They are very good knives but not exceptional.

The designs are pleasing, the features very good, but consistency

in the quality control leave the knives lacking when it compares to S & W greatness. With a little effort, the blades could be tweaked by S & W into a high end competitive blade. But what the heck, S & W blades are priced RIGHT!

In there niche, S & W seem to own the market, with few competitors competing in their price bracket with all the ruggedness and features of their knives. This of course could be disputed.

All and all, the knives in this review can be rated overall between 6 and 7 points on a 10 scale. They are very good knives.

On a price/value ratio, the knives rate higher, due to their low cost. For value, the knives are rated 9 on average.

Patriot Prepper loves S & W knives and believe they could fulfill the needs of a prepper who is on a budget. They are rugged, durable, and will perform when needed.

God Bless
Keep on Prepping

After a little yard work, I thought I would start prepping for a possible meet up with TheLowBuckPrepper and SoulSurvivorX2 to test Low Buck’s marinade sauce.

To understand what I’m talking about you have to watch this video

Just so you know, preppers can have fun. We are not paranoid and prepping every minute of our lives. I live an extremely healthy lifestyle, but everyone in a while I let loose and enjoy a little Tequila and a cigar or two.

Hurricane Preparedness Food

In light of the tragedy in the South, I would like to emphasize the need to get prepared and stay prepared for natural or manmade disasters. I have lived through 3 major hurricanes. In South, Florida we are entering the hurricane season.

Many years the weather channels predict that the season will be very busy with storms. Sometimes they are right and sometimes they are wrong. One thing is certain, during the hurricane season there is always the possibility of a hurricane hitting South Florida. If we wait until one is heading in our direction, it just might be too late to prepare. Prepare early and be safe.

This video shows the food supply that I have dedicated to feeding myself and anyone else in need of food should a hurricane hit. The food you see in this video is designated for the hurricane season only. It is not for my bug out bag, bug out SUV, or my retreat.

There is obviously more food than I need for myself and another person to survive most hurricanes. However, there are always people who are unprepared. If I have extra food I will share it and feed those in need. Sharing does a soul good.

The message: be prepared and Keep on Prepping!

Your fellow prepper,
