"An organization whose claim to fame is that it supposedly counters “junk science” through independent scientific review has been outed as a sham industry front group that actively promotes the interests of its corporate sponsors, which include companies like Coca-Cola, Monsanto, McDonald’s and Procter & Gamble. The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) bills itself as an independent, non-profit gatekeeper of science that works to ensure that “peer-reviewed mainstream science reaches the public.” And this statement is technically true, if you can wade through its grandiloquence and understand what is actually meant by “peer-reviewed mainstream science.” Leaked financial documents from ACSH reveal that the organization suffers deficits year after year, and continually has to beg for funding from its corporate donors just to get by (after the shills running it get their slice, of course). And just who are these corporate donors? They include natural gas “fracking” companies, e-cigarette manufacturers, drug companies, junk food corporations, pharmaceutical and vaccine companies, and chemical industries. The following list outlines ACSH donors for fiscal year 2013, and the respective donations made:"
"Bushcraft is a skill set, and along with those skills you would need certain tools, materials, and gear, but bush craft is primarily based on knowledge and not on gear or equipment. There is not a kit, if you will that has “Bushcraft Kit” stamped on it. Bushcraft requires a certain skill set that can take years to master. Survival until rescued requires some skills, but to survive most people would have to rely heavily on materials, gear, and certain other supplies that are in their survival kits. There is a lot of emphasis placed on survival kits, and the reason being is that people who are not trained in bushcraft need gear. They need a so-called survival kit. People that lack training, or ones that have training, but have not applied their training and knowledge will need a survival kit to survive if they become lost or stranded. Simply put, the less you know, the more you need."
(Sgt Trainer: I learned in Statistics class...many moons ago...that you can twist the numbers to pretty much tell the story YOU want them to. This is a very good example of that. This article highlights this.)
"The University of Colorado-Boulder has launched an online system where students can report people who make “hurtful statements” — and it’s so intense that it even asks for offenders’ Social Security numbers."
"So us menfolk were laying about after planting “the alleged” garden, and we meandered into a discussion regarding the continuing fall of western civilization. Now, Brother HempRope, (what with his being serially addicted to regimentation and organization), suggested we cobble together some ground-rules for “the end of polite American culture.” Naturally, a few hours and about twelve Boulevards later, a loose set of guidelines began to emerge – scattered musings on dealing with a world where society has failed, and ruin seems not only likely, but virtually unavoidable. Some of our laws might be a tad stale, derivative, or even shamelessly plucked from the brain drippings of other older, wiser chaps, whom we just can’t place, (or we’d credit them). So be it – it’s not like humanity has kicked forth a truly novel idea since some intrepid cave-dweller strapped logs to a large rock anyways."
"Milking the gun tends to move the point of impact low and to the side."
"The history books tell us about how evil and wicked the Nazis were, so why aren’t we more alarmed that the United States is becoming more like Nazi Germany with each passing day? More than three years ago, I wrote an article entitled “25 Signs That America Is Rapidly Becoming More Like Nazi Germany” which got a ton of attention. Unfortunately, nothing has gotten better since I first published that piece. Government control freaks are still watching us, tracking us, recording our phone calls and monitoring our emails. TSA thugs at our airports are still fondling the private parts of our women and children and laughing while they do it. Our police and our military are still training for civil unrest and martial law in America. And even though our politicians are socializing our economy and destroying our constitutional freedoms, the American people keep sending most of them back to Washington time after time. It is an incredibly sad thing to watch the country that you love slowly die right in front of your eyes."
