  • Preparedness Notes for Sunday — September 15, 2019

    On this day in 1944, the U.S. 1st Marine Division landed on the island of Peleliu, one of the Palau Islands in the Pacific, as part of a larger operation to provide support for Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who was preparing to invade the Philippines. Within one week of the invasion, the Marines lost 4,000 men. By the time it was all over, that number would surpass 9,000. The Japanese lost more than 13,000 men. Flamethrowers and bombs finally subdued the island for the Americans, but it all proved pointless. MacArthur invaded the Philippines without need of Army or Marine protection … The post Preparedness Notes for Sunday — September 15, 2019 appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com. […]

LOMATIUM Why you want it:  Lomatium is the go-to antiviral for influenza.  It’s much cheaper than Tamiflu, you don’t need a prescription, and it doesn’t have to be started within 24 hours to be effective.  During the Spanish flu, when it was used on patients thought to be lost causes, even these patients fully recovered. Lomatium is an herb that most people have never even heard of.  And yet, it’s something you really want to be able to identify and harvest if possible if you live west of the Mississippi, … The post The Pharmacy Around Us – Part 3, by Jen R. appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com.

While there are not as many uses for extracts from berberine plants as for juniper and Usnea, a berberine tincture is still very nice to have on hand in case of cholera or giardia.  The most common plants high in berberine content are Japanese barberry, Oregon grape, Nandina domestica, Hydrastis canadensis, and Phellodendron amurense (not to be confused with the common philodendron houseplant).  And you’ve probably got … The post The Pharmacy Around Us – Part 2, by Jen R. appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com.

Second, I would rather subsidize his group than some outfit I have no clue about. That probably donates to the LGBTQ minority handicapped socialist workers party.Honestly this is nick-picking the fly shit.

    I wouldn't even call that a negative review. It's like someone who buys a book on nuclear engineering, then complains that it's too deep for his model submarine building fetish. And he got the book for free, so he never had to make the value judgement and plunk down his own cold, hard cash. Being a hobbiest, I'm guessing he never would've bought it. IMO, the negative review you're looking for will come from a True Believer.With regard to the price: much too much is expected for nothing these days. Everyone wants, even demands, free content. I paid the big jing for your books because of the content, but more so because I thought it rewarded you for past work (blog and book) and would help support your future efforts. It's the same reason I willingly pay more for something to a local vendor vs ordering off the internet.

    Yup. Criticism is essential to improvement. Good reviews are nice, and one must recognize peoples' need to offer praise (I think it is kind of a reflexive affirmation of the validity and importance of their own experiences and opinions), but empty praise is worthless. "Thank you, I appreciate your need to nurture and acknowledge the importance of your feelers, but...what could I have done better?"Good praise: "I like that you offered x,y and z. How you explained such and so with depth. "but should be coupled with effective criticism e.g.:"your exploration of exhibit 1 would have been more effective with some background on its development as well as the current state..." or "more charts and illustrations would have helped"...FWIW: I offered some criticism of your first tome to the effect that editing the fracking sentence fragments, misspellings and misused words would go a long way to bolstering your credibility as both a writer and an expert on the subject. Whether you consciously took that advice or have merely grown in your word-craft, you have improved.As soon as my second mortgage goes through and I can by the next volume 🙂 I have no further input to offer.

    Ha, that is somewhat funny even though it may not be meant so. Typical millennial mindset of intellectual superiority. I put it in my hobby category, so it's not worth it. I have spoken.Well, even though this tool may have his own estimate of the situation, that does not mean everyone else must agree with it. You can do damn near anything you want, but if someone has a different estimate, then these books may damn well be worth every penny.I for one, totally disagree with his assessment. Therefore the books are indispensable to me. I have put it in my get ready for the shit category, so they are totally worth it. Do as you see fit.But he has no real criticism of the material, just the cost of a privately published book. Typical entitlement mentality. All things should be available to me-cheap.This hardly qualifies as any real criticism, IMHO. Just some snarky comments on the cost of the material.It's really hard to find fault with what Mosby is laying down. Only that his standards are really high, but then if that's what the reality is, then that's just shooting the messenger.I may think he's a total dick for pointing out all my weaknesses, but then that's on me to get un-fucked.So doctrinally, I can't really find fault. But can understand people getting butt-hurt by the presentation. Most people aren't used to this kind of thing.Would I leave feedback to say tone it down? No, not really.
