Don’t Just Stand By And Watch – Quote

Do something… Hiding, or sitting back, is not going to accomplish anything. And the gunman would’ve been successful if my friend Spencer had not gotten up. So I just want that lesson to be learned going forward, in times of, like, terror like that, please do something. Don’t just stand by and watch.

For his warrior spirit and frankly for ignoring DOD policies that tell service members to hide and barricade themselves during an active shooter situation, Airman Stone along with National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos, their longtime friend Anthony Sadler and British businessman Chris Norman are the latest inductees into Prepography‘s Wall of Honor.

 

19th Century Rules – Today’s Quote

You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text, It is serious in terms of sort of the modern manner with which nations are going to resolve problems… President Obama wants to emphasize to the Russians that there are a right set of choices that can still be made to address any concerns they have about Crimea, about their citizens, but you don’t choose to invade a country in order to do that.

Andrew’s Note:  Watch out Putin…there may be a harshly worded letter in your future but the good news is that your 19th century aggression could only be countered by an early 20th century (size) force once we reduce our manpower to pre-WWII levels.

Everybody Lives on A Floodplain

Floods are currently hitting parts of central Europe that haven’t been flooded in living memory…and then some.  In fact, the water levels in Passau, Germany have topped the highest recorded flood levels ever recorded there…and that was in 1501.  Just another reminder that you must plan for the unexpected and not put all your eggs in one basket…or preps all in one place.

Now I’m not saying that we’re all going to suffer a flood, but your preps may be vulnerable to fire, earthquake, theft, tornado or any manner of other trouble…just don’t let your trouble become a tragedy by relying on one location, stockpile or cache… spread your preps among several locations, enter into a prepper compact with a like minded family that’s lives a distance from you…or both.  Of course if you read the Bible, the Torah or the Qur’an…everybody lives on a floodplain.
