The Alaska native has amassed a large number of prepping resrouces (in .pdf format) on his aptly-named “Prepper Resouces” page. “Over 570 and […]

I remember thinking to myself, “Well, I don’t want to just focus on turmoil in the financial markets as part of a coming financial crash. I also need to […]

Last week, I mentioned that in lieu of “In Print” posts on Survival And Prosperity, I’d be substituting other material for the time being. Tonight, I’ll be blogging about a documentary entitled 10 Ways to End the World. It originally aired on the National Geographic Channel back in 2012, but I saw it for the […]

From time to time, I’ll talk about the Illinois Policy Institute, a Chicago-based non-partisan research organization that works “to make Illinois first in economic outlook and job creation.” The last time I blogged about the Institute, they had just released a report about Illinois having the most units of local government of any state in […]

In last week’s “Project Prepper” post, I talked about security landscaping at the “new” house. I’ll be working on this project more over the next several days, and share with readers what I’ve come up with shortly.

The New York Times just published an article about former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg. In it, the gun “control” and so-called “Nanny State” proponent reportedly said: I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in.
