On Your Own
“The Alpha Strategy: The Ultimate Plan of Financial Self-Defense,” a book that was written in 1980 by John Pugsley, outlines how the economy really works and provides an investing strategy that could be a very viable solution for the prepper as well as those who are hesitant to invest in traditional paper investments. While some may consider a book written in 1980 to be irrelevant to today’s situation, I would beg to differ. What the country was going through in 1980 is not unlike the situation that the United States has seen over the last five or six years.
My children look to my husband and to me for answers, for direction, for love and for protection. I don’t want to let them down. I’m a proud and responsible gun owner; and, just like my mother before me, I’ll err on the side of “crazy mom,” any day.
One of the best ways to cut utility bills is by getting off the vulnerable electrical grid as much as possible. Regardless of whether you are able to do that, there are many additional steps you can take in order to reduce your power costs.

Well, the topic of open carry has come up again here in Wisconsin as a couple of well-meaning men wandered through the Village of Germantown (just northwest of Milwaukee) carrying sidearms and rifles in full view. It happened in mid-March and was a flash in the pan as far as social media goes.
How serious a threat does flooding pose? Flash floods can bring walls of water from 10 to 20 feet high, a car can be carried away by just two feet of flood water and just a few inches of water from a flood can cause thousands of dollars in damages.
For people who love to garden, but have very limited space (or a tight budget), container gardening is a great way to enjoy growing your own produce without all the work of planting a large garden.
The greatest way to prepare for disaster with limited resources is to make the best decisions with your money and ultimately explore methods to obtain goods and services without having to spend money.
Smarter people than I have pointed out that a loaded handgun is the only thing that puts a 65-year-old woman on even ground against a young thug. Without guns we are at the mercy of the young, the strong or the many. With a gun we can fight back.
