Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn't allow him to do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians.

Fighting the Rain

I didn't get anything accomplished around the house this week due to the rain.I've been fighting it all week at work trying to man the pumps to stop the building from flooding.Then when I get off I have a 50 mile commute and have to try and pick a route that will be passable.I know I shouldn't bitch because most of the country would welcome some of this. Feast or Famine I guess.Well hopefully I can get the new chicken hen house completed this week if the weather cooperates,Good luck to all....

Felling the pinch

Money's tight and the preps are low,I gotta find a way to make some dough!!We have been eating the stored preps to get rid of them because they are gettin old,but I'm felling really vulnerable with Hurricane season upon us.I have a side job to do tomorrow and will probably make a couple of hundred bucks which will be spent entirely at Sam's to replenish my staple stock. That should bring me enough for the ol lady and me to make it for a couple of months at least.I still have a good stash of meat in the freezers and should be ok unless we get hit with a EMP in which case I'm Fucked like most people.No gen set ,no solar I'm toast.I also need to stock up on some necessary daily meds we need to take,Synthroid,blood thinners, blood pressure meds.It sucks to get old and dependent on that crap.At least I have a months worth of meat on the hoof.By then the zombies will have arrived and I'll make my last stand.It's hard for me to believe I've let myself get this low on supplies but times are getting tougher every day so I just have to suck it up and keep on keepin on. What about you?

Coming for your food in utah

Guess this is part of the agenda 21 plan,Get the food so they have control.

The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food is promoting the Utah Garden Challenge in order to collect information about independent food production for the USDA.

The Utah Garden Challenge is a voluntary contest to register 10,000 gardens. The data mining project has a broad interest in any "resource" who is growing food:

Whether you grow a tomato in a pot, a row in a community garden, have backyard gardens, a CSA or working fruit and vegetable farm, we want to hear from you because you are an important resource as a food producer.

While the contest paints a proud face on independent food production, it is important to remember that registering with the government sets up a system to track, tax, permit or confiscate the registered item. Gun ownership is a good example of this scheme.

According to a pop-up window on the official website, participants' gardens will be registered with the USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS):

We need to know how much food is being produced in Utah. The Census of Agriculture is done every 5 years. Every agricultural operation in Utah, regardless of size, is vital to this question. If you produce $1000 of agricultural products, you can influence economic development and decision making by filling out a NASS survey. We will only share your information with NASS by your permission. Your response to the census of agriculture is protected by law. For more information, you can go to

In other words, people who produce $1000 or more worth of food have an impact on the food market, and the USDA wants to know about what you are doing in your backyard.

Victory gardens in America produced up to 40% of all vegetables consumed during World War II, with over 20 millon home gardens and community plots that produced over 9 million tons of food.

The USDA is notorious for its corrupt partnerships and revolving door business relationships with big commercial agriculture.

Government Crackdowns & Food Control

Food is under attack because if you can grow your own food, have access to water and shelter, then what use do you have for a government master?

The federal government has profoundly overstepped its constitutional authority on all fronts, and there are a number of examples of the USDA's outrageous control over food that include SWAT team raids on raw milk sellers and fruit tree confiscation.

The Food Safety Modernization Act expanded the power of the FDA and its sister agency, the USDA. The law is bad for many reasons and is an overwhelming burden on small and independent farmers due to over-regulation and increase in paperwork and reporting.

Additionally, the FBI identifies people who store food as potential terrorists!

Why Is Utah A Threat?

1. A few months ago Utah voted down a Food Freedom Bill that would have made it a crime for anyone, including Utah state agents, to enforce the Food Safety Modernization Act's unconstitutional mandates. It would have made farmers who trade only inside of state lines exempt. The bill was a direct constitutional challenge to federal overreach.

2. Highland City, Utah passed a Food Freedom ordinance that exempts residents from federal regulations on food that is produced, exchanged and consumed within city limits (state laws still apply).

3. Utah has the largest concentration of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormons) who have an official policy of food storage, currently set at a 1-year minimum supply. This may be construed as a threat by the FBI, especially since a 1-year supply of food can cost as little as $225.

Conclusion points out that the Utah Garden Challenge is linked to the United Nations Agenda 21 Sustainable Development plan for totalitarian control.

The Utah Garden Challenge is enticing Utahans with meager prizes (a 1-in-1000 chance of winning a giftcard or free restaurant dinner) to register their gardens and subject themselves to invasive government data mining. But is your food independence worth it?

I guess next they will be coming for my Bunnies.....I don't think so!

8 for the freezer

I got started to late with breeding rabbits this year because of too much going on at work and the summer snunk up on me,but i harvested 8 nice size bunnies that I haven't had a chance to butcher.My goal was to have about 40 or 50 in the freezer for hurricane season but that's not gonna happen,It's been to damm hot and I don't want to put my girls through that in this heat.I still have another 1/2 dozen to do in a few weeks so I guess that will have to do till the fall,them I'll get those girls humping!!
I left one out on the side that I will try and eat this weekend.If things get tough There's always the chickens.....
