Welcome to our Blog

In March of 2011 my wife and I quit or jobs, cashed in our chips and left the big city behind to move to our farm hidden away in northeast Georgia. These are our observations on the news of the day and our adventures in homesteading, becoming self reliant, prepping and living a simpler, more fulfilling life.

Report on the Nation

Troubles Ahead:

This probably won't come as news to most of you but people tend to ignore reality. I've been guilty of it myself from time to time, most have. Lets be honest, it's often just easier to turn a blind eye to reality than deal with it. Ignored long enough and it will sneak right up on you and slap you in the face. After all it is reality... it's not going to go away. Survivalist, preppers and the like tend to be forward thinkers. They pay attention to their environment, look to the future and plan for the possible realities they see... good for them.... the rest?.. "now which is my blind eye"...........

Try to set aside whatever biases or preconceptions you might have for a moment and ask yourself why death threats against politicians aren’t considered national news, especially in the wake of the all too fresh shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and other bystanders. And there hasn’t just been one death threat, but a number of them.

Here, you’ll find a compilation of 20 days worth of the death threats, vandalism, and intimidation practiced by pro-union thugs opposed to Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill. http://bigjournalism.com/20-days-of-left-wing-thuggery-in-wisconsin

AFL-CIO's Richard Trumka plans to take his union's methods nationally in an effort to stop various governments attempts at reigning in runaway spending.
Does he look familiar? Trumpka was invited to President Obama's Address to Congress on jobs and sat by the First Lady.

500 Tea Party Protesters Storm a Government Building, Take Hostages

Got your attention?
Good. Because it seems that unless a story has negative implications for the tea party no one (even Fox News) is going to make a stink about it.
On Thursday morning, over 500 members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (an AFL-CIO union) did something that should have been the top news story on every major news network in the country. Read more.....http://bigjournalism..com unions thugs

The Stench of Civility

In January when a smirking schizoid goony loon who claimed no political affiliation sprayed hot lead on an
Arizona crowd—killing six and injuring fourteen—the barking dogs of leftist punditry pounced like starving hyenas on the carnage, making raw political hamburger out of it. After two years of falsely depicting the Tea Party as a short-fused bomb waiting to explode into a blood-stained cum shot of racist violence, the left’s paid puppets rushed to the crime scene like the blind men of Hindu legend jostling to squeeze the elephant’s testicles until they burst. There was the predictably vomit-inducing pecksniffery about scary rhetoric, angry mobs, and how hateful speech has consequences. They saw no conflicts of interest in the fact that their own crowd had openly cheered for violence against people such as Sarah Palin and George W. Bush for years. When it became evident that shooter Jared Loughner was politically unclassifiable, there was a screaming silence when it came to apologies and retractions.

........... This is no longer just about party affiliation, differing  views or apposing ideologies. This is now about the survival of our freedom to disagree. The Lefties have decided they've heard enough about cost cutting, balanced budgets and responsible governance. Their strategy is clear. They will bully and shame us into submission, if that doesn't work.... the baseball bat will. The Lefties seem desperate and nothing is off limits.  Paul krugman's touching post on 9/11 is a perfect example. Read it and tell me there is not something wrong with this man. Check out AFL-CIO's. Richard Trumka's 9/11 call to activism. I was a UAW member for 4 years. I walked a strike line for 4 1/2 months for $65 a week. I understand the union way, and I understand Trumka's position. Union membership is dwindling and he's trying to save union jobs and union contracts. He ignores our new economic reality and demands that the rest of the nation keep paying, he should know we can't. And when we don't... there will be war. So here we are, Heading toward an election I believe will be like no other in resent history. Sure we've gotten a taste in the last couple of elections with the SEIU high jinks, the Lefties rhetoric of racism, Homeland Security's rightwing extremism report, voter intimidation and voter fraud. 
It's going to be a lot worse this time. The unions and New Black Panthers are brushing up on their thuggery, and the Left wing talking heads and their media machine spread their propaganda of fear & hate--- A return to Jim Crow, lynchings  racism and the usual "they want to throw orphans and the elderly out on the street. I know.... to you and I it sounds like insanity. But to the uneducated, unread and dimwitted among us it's believable. Keep watching, pay attention or get bitch slapped.... JP 

The Homestead Report:

 Fruit trees and bushes are a great way to add to your diet, and the value of your homestead. Fact is that even if you live on a 1/8 acre lot in a subdivision you can grow a few fruit trees and bushes. Apple, peach, pear and plumb trees would  be great additions to any home, homestead or retreat. As well as blueberry, blackberry, strawberry and raspberry  bushes.

We have 1 old pear tree that continues to put out lots of delicious sweet pears every year. We also have 1 apple and 1 peach tree. They have put out 2 of the last 4 years, not sure why yet. We have lots of wild blackberry bushes all over the property. Next spring we hope to add a few pear, peach and apple trees along with a couple of plumb trees, a few raspberry and strawberry bushes.
