Gauchos vs Animal Rights/Climate change Activists



… and that went as well as you’d expect. :-)
No, no, its not just about the laughs (although I did LOL). There’s a lesson here as well.
Maybe, just maybe, you don’t go crash the largest festival of the year celebrating the rural traditions of a country, trying to impose your animal rights/climate change/ feminist/SJW/antifa nonsense imported from San Francisco?

They sure did get rid of them fast enough.

Maybe hire a few gauchos to help out with the next antifa rally??

Food stockpile: How much food do you really have?


The cheapest insurance money can buy yet you can't live without it. How much food do you have set aside for a rainy day? For how long would you and your family be able to feed yourselves if stores close and trucks stop rolling in with more supplies?

Different organizations recommend different quantities of food to have in case of an emergency, but there’s one trend I’ve noticed over the years: Main stream preparedness and government institutions keep increasing their recommendation. Take note of that.
It used to be that they advised people to have 72hs worth of food. That was pretty standard. Today, that quantity has gone up noticeably.

I just finished my upcoming book “Street Survival Skills” (available soon…) and in it I mention the Red Cross  recommendation of having 2 weeks’ worth of food and two weeks’ worth of water. That’s a gallon per person per day. I honestly doubt most people that consider themselves preppers and survivalists even have that.

Food is still very much cheap and it gets eaten anyway. Its not like +90% of your “just in case” preps.
Go out and spend a couple hundred bucks on food and see how much damage you can do. Real food you cook with not MREs. You’ll be surprised by how much you can put aside for a rainy day.
IF you don’t know where to start, try dry pasta, rice and lentils (or beans if you’re more of a bean type of person).
Take care.

Must-watch movie for this weekend: “The Survival Family”


Survival Family (2017) available on Netflix? - NetflixReleases

It’s called “The Survival Family (Sabaibaru famirî)”.

Yes, it’s Japanese and you have to read a bit. Nope! Don’t think about the subtitles...  Don’t!
Just watch it and thank me later.

I don’t want to ruin it for you guys because I went into it knowing nothing about it and it made it so much better.
Dont even watch the trailer.
Lets just say it’s the typical SHTF scenario talked about so much, but presented without all the Hollywood carap that we know ruins these type of movies by making them so freaking stupid and predicable, with plastic, unrealistic people that dont do a single thing a normal person would. Like fast food for the brain.
Not this little gem.

No idea if its on Netflix right now, but do yourself a favor, find it and watch it. Drop a comment when you’re done.
Enjoy!

Understanding Antifa and what they Stand For

See? This is why you need a fenced perimeter!


This weekened in Merlo, Buenos Aires. A 19 Year old burglar tried to jump the fence and got caught. He cried for help and woke up the home owners.

This kind of thing happens fairly often. Back in the day, in my old neigborhood a couple came back home one night to find a dead burglar hanging from their fence, bled out.

Some time  before that, a tragic story was somewhat similar, but this time the couple came back home to find their own son dead. He forgot his keys, tried to jump into the house and got caught.
Anyway, fences just work. Keep in mind though that they are no joke.

Living on a 6 US Dollars Salary.... a Month

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July.

Just a reminder of how lucky we are, those of us that dont live under the thumb of a madman like Maduro.

Can you imagine living on 6 bucks a month?.... in a place where thats the price of a burger?
Very interesting video, both to learn a bit of what life is like in these places and to appreciate what we have.

The problem with the “When SHTF” Mentality


Did SHTF for the guy that owns this car, caught in a flash flood? I'd say it did.

This is something I keep seeing all over the community or even during conversations with other like-minded people.

“When SHTF” I’ll do this or that.
“What gun are you planning on carrying … when SHTF?”
“When SHTF, I’ll go to my ranch/homestead/bunker/friend’s house”
These are precisely the people that end up not being ready when it counts because they keep waiting for some kind of invitation, email or notification so as to official know that as of right now, shit has indeed hit the fan:
  Dear Sir, we are contacting you in regards to recent events and would like to inform you that as of right now shit has officially hit the fan. Start wearing full camo throughout the day, board your windows, booby trap your back yard (its ok, kids no longer jump around the back yard playing any more once SHTF) and start carrying your battle rifle everywhere you go. Feel free to shoot that guy down the street you never liked. Its ok, authorities won’t respond again, ever. Go around scavenging stores and houses as you see fit. That’s perfectly acceptable after the world ends. Oh! One more thing. Expect sports illustrated swimsuit models to join your brave group of survivors and idolize you like a god for the preparations you made… for when SHTF.
Good luck and enjoy the end of the world!
It just doesn’t work that way. In places where shit has very much hit the fan there’s people with this mentality. I still see if from people living in true hell holes, places like Venezuela, still talking about what they will do when it gets worse.

Prepare now. Act now. I live in a very safe part of the world, one of the safest countries in Europe where going around for a walk at 3 AM is still perfectly safe. That doesn’t mean bad things don’t happen. Purses get snatched, pockets picked and stuff still gets stolen. A girl getting drunk in a beach party can still end up getting raped. At the end of the day you can get into a violent altercation with someone (especially now during the holyday season). So arm yourself as well as you can now and learn how to defend yourself if you don’t already know how.

Not looking after your health will get you killed SHTF or not, so get that blood test you’ve been postponing NOW, not after SHTF. Put that fire extinguisher in your car now, keep one in your kitchen now. Have a kit in your vehicle now because you can still get stranded on the road.

As rare as home invasions are around here, a while back someone broke into a neighbor’s house. His teen daughter was home alone when it happened. She locked herself in the bathroom. She called her father who was abroad at the time. Whomever broke in tried to force the door open, failed, so they took a few things quickly and left. Teach you family how to defend themselves now.

Believe me that when there’s not a drop of water coming out of the faucet, that’s not the time to go fill up that empty “water bob” you were supposed to fill … when SHTF. Have enough water for a week now. Learn to cook with your food stash now. Store what you eat, eat what you store so if there’s ever riots, lootings, food shortages or if for whatever reason you need to dig into your food supplies there will be no hard learned lesson or adaptation period.

Whatever important change in your life or idea you have on what you would do, do it now. Trust me on this, if you cant pull it off today, you wont when things get worse.

Stop thinking in terms of “when SHTF” and thing of how you will act if things make a serious turn for the worse tomorrow, or right this moment. That’s just life and that’s how real SHTF, the kind that change your life in an instant, hit you when you least expect it.
