  • Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — March 26, 2019
    by James Wesley Rawles on March 26, 2019 at 7:06 am

    Today is a sad day for American liberty. Following a directive by allegedly “pro-gun” President Donald J. Trump that he handed down to the BATFE, part of of our freedom died. As of today, bumpfire stocks stocks are now formally banned. They all just became re-classified as contraband “machineguns” — a felony to possess.  Contravening a long-standing tradition in American jurisprudence, with this ban ruling there is NO grandfather clause. Nor is there any compensation offered for a Federal “taking”. And because of the Hughes Amendment to the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986 (FOPA ’86), there is no $200 … The post Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — March 26, 2019 appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com.

I didn’t know it then, but that was back when the censorship campaign was still fairly mild and relatively subtle. Then, in early August of 2018, Alex Jones was systematically banned by more than 10 social media services and sites. Eventually, even Twitter jumped on the “Ban Alex” Band Wagon. When the Alex Jones mass banning was reported in the … The post Phase Three of the Internet Censorship War appeared first on SurvivalBlog.com. […]

This phrase is used primarily by globalist institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to describe an event in which the current system as we know it will either die out or evolve into a new system where “multilateralism” will become the norm.

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.
