This guy was walking around walmart in full ACU with BLACK combat boots, no patches, no name tape or rank. He clearly has his PC on indoors as well, not to mention that his unformed was so sloppy (that is kind of hard to do with ACUs). Seems like sombody isn’t aware of the new Stolen Valor Act that was signed into law recently :/ Jerk. Seriously though, why would you do that in a military town where you can easily be caught?? The stupidity in this one is strong….
In light of this I just got back from an Outdoors expo at the Gun Club near me. I learned that a tactical/camping/reliance/gardening store opened not long ago in the area!!!! It is huge at 5,000 sq ft, and they offer an large selection of FREE classes from psychology of survival, wilderness first aid, native plants, land navigation, canning, HAM radio licensing etc…. Guess who’s about to sign up for all of these classes!! I also found out that the local National Parks do pretty interesting hikes and events as well. I think the most interesting one is the Moonlight Hike where they hike the trails at night with black lights hunting for scorpions. Perhaps I will be able to make that one :) Another exciting thing is that I found a ranch that allows licensed hunters to go boar hunting on their property. Oh yea, definitely on the to do list once Brown Bear gets back from deployment. Okay well I must head on to bed as I work tonight and stood out far too late collecting all this cool information at the expo. Good night everyone.
Today is D-Day! Please, take a minute to reflect, and pray for those that gave all for our Freedom.

was the first day of Operation Overlord AKA D-Day began.
This is the second day in a row that someone saw me walking and, thought that I was on my way to school (mind you the only schools in my area are, elementary and high school). I guess I will take that as a compliment :)
World Health Officials are tracking a mysterious new virus, that is currently spreading through the middle east, which they warn could be a threat to the entire world…..
Ok I get it now. So the reason they are worried is because they can’t figure out where it originated and how it is being spread. It seems to also have a 50% mortality rate (which is worrisome if this turns out to be the real deal). An interesting event to keep an eye on until further notice.
The three victims died in eastern Saudi Arabia, and the World Health Organisation is now calling the MERS-CoV virus a global threat.
So 27 people have died and they are considering this a global threat? Am I the only one getting the vibe that there is more to this than they are telling us (like with everything else in there world)? Though this could (as it often times does) turn out to be nothing. Hopefully that is all it is.
We all know the TSA are not the brightest apples but damn…
I love this photo and will always reblog it
Joe Teti from Dual Survivor shows us what he has in one of his bug out bags.
By request. Here are the links to the two articles I posted in my reply as well as a news video about it.
I think the situation is a bit more complicated than just oil. Nothing we have done over there has helped the people we were attempting to help. We have nothing to show for, just look at Iraq. That country is on the brink of civil war right now, but you won’t hear that on the news because it will just prove what a failure everything over there was. That is what happens when the military is used for political gain and not what they were created for. It is also the cause of politicians making decisions that they know nothing of. I fear the same thing will happen in Afghanistan.
The real problem here is that we are basically trying to be friends with people who for the most part do not want to be friends with us. We cannot simply just roll up there and “give” them freedom and Democracy. They have to want it and stand up for it, but they don’t. Those who do want us there expect us to give it to them. Unfortunately that is not how it works. Every nation that has ever existed has at one point stood up to another for their freedom and independence or have had revolutions within. Their time came and the people stood up and took it. In the Middle East they have yet to really do so (those protests that we see on tv have not changed anything if not just made things worst). Until then nothing we do will help them. They as a whole have to stand up to the terrorists in their countries. Us teaching their armies only puts them in danger as well as our soldiers, because they turn around and shoot our soldiers or lead them to ambushes as well as use their new found training to rule over the people in their country. I have since come to believe that it is a lost cause and only they can save themselves, if any of this makes sense. I do hope though, that their time does come and that they are able to fix their countries for the better.
