Why the Racist Bias in Mainstream Media?

December 7th, 2014

The mainstream media routinely concoct lies about White-on-Black racism. On the other hand, the media condone an epidemic of Black-on-Black teen murders. Profit motive does not explain the bias. Hatred does.

Prepping for a Failure of Civility

July 18th, 2014

A U.S. dollar collapse may cause social disorder. The dollar will fail when the federal government can no longer pay interest on Its debt. Social disorder will be triggered by two factors unique to the United States: one-third of U.S. residents may be forced into looting, and help cannot come from outside. The solution is a neighborhood protection plan as detailed in the spec-ops handbook, A Failure of Civility by Mike Garand and Jack Lawson. Previous social collapses (Sarajevo, Mogadishu, Katrina) teach two shocking lessons: bunker preppers die first and the government is not your friend.

Getting Started With Bitcoins

December 30th, 2013

Tells the minimum you must know in order to try bitcoins. It assumes that you do not want details of how bitcoins are created (mined), sent (broadcast), or verified (confirmed). You do not care whether bitcoins are truly “money”, whether they have “intrinsic value”, nor their political implications. You do not care whether they conceal your identity or reveal it. And you do not want to debate narcotics, pornography, guns, tobacco, alcohol, socialism, libertarianism, or anarcho-capitalism. You just want to get a few coins and play around with them.

Self-Defense Insurance

July 27th, 2013

Obeying the law is not enough. You also need money. If you draw your sidearm to stop an attacking thug you can still be prosecuted with the full fury of the U.S. justice system. At best it will cost you your life savings. At worst, you will rot in prison for lack of money to defend yourself. The solution is to plan for the worst. Today we look at three ways of arranging to have self-defense contingency funds available: NRA-sponsored self-defense insurance, USCCA Shield, and ACLDN membership.

Why You Should Not Defend a Stranger

June 3rd, 2013

You spot a large man dragging, hitting, or kicking a woman on the ground who is screaming, “Help! Rape! Anyone! Help!” When should you intervene? The simplest answer is “never”. The best answer is “when you are willing to risk 20 years in prison”.

Disputing the Anarcho-Capitalist View of Crime-Fighting

February 23rd, 2013

Over the past few decades, constitutional rights have eroded in the United States due to the rise of welfare statism and media-supported presidential dictatorship. The slow collapse of U.S. liberty into tyranny of the majority has produced an intellectual opposition called anarcho-capitalism. The “an-cap” movement believes with Thoreau: “That government is best which governs least. … That government is best which governs not at all.” But how can a state-free society deal with crime? An-cap thinkers offer two solutions. This essay disputes both.

Prepping for Hyperinflation with Bitcoins

January 26th, 2013

In the near future, when your national government debases the official currency in order to avoid default, bank accounts and bonds will become worthless. After months of disruption people will adjust to life where prices and wages double every few weeks. “Junk silver” is what we recommend as your day-to-day money during the transition. For the longer term, savings are normally kept in precious metals, such as gold Krugerrands or platinum Eagles, but an alternative has appeared. Bitcoins also are a good choice of long-term savings medium.

Book Review: All God’s Children by Fox Butterfield

January 19th, 2013

This book is an entertaining but preposterous polemic that blames both 18th-century code duello and early 20th-century Jim Crow for somehow creating a late 20th-century sociopath.

Resource Predators versus Process Predators

January 5th, 2013

Monkey-dance challengers are loud and seek an audience. Apologize and back away. Predators seek secluded venues with no witnesses. Adopt an interview stance and warn them. Ninety percent will then flee. One in ten resource predators will still try to take your property and escape. Let them. No property is worth going to prison or spending your life savings to avoid prison. Process predators will try to take you somewhere private or bind your hands. Fight for your life.

What Part of “Trained and Licensed” Don’t They Understand?

December 29th, 2012

One issue is routinely disputed when the topic of gun control is raised, even among armed citizens themselves. It is the fear that someone out there lacks adequate training. The training issue has lately become more heated than usual on gun forums, because of a recent school shooting in Connecticut. Ever since laws were passed that forbid teachers from carrying guns in school, the United States, like Europe, has averaged about one school shooting every 60 days. (See this blog for details.) In simple fact, only one method has ever been proven to stop school shootings once and for all. That is to permit trained, licensed teachers to carry their sidearms on the job.
