Daily Briefing For Monday, May 19, 2014

Stock Up, Tune In and Hang On.

Jerid shared this article with me and a few others this evening to get our feedback.  Turns out Thailand is undergoing a quasi-coup of some sort at the moment.  We visited a bit about the article, and my only response was that we needed to "stock up, tune in and hang on," a play on the Timothy Leary quote from way back when. 

We live in interesting times to say the least.  People occasionally ask me what they should be doing to get prepared for this or that, and I always tell them the same thing:

  1. Do the basic preparations first. 
  2. Educate yourself on what's happening in the world and draw your own conclusions.
  3. Focus on making yourself physically, mentally and spiritually stronger.
That's it.  That will equip you to handle many things that might come your way.  Preparedness is not hard, but it is work.  It's about executing some basic things very well, like having food, water and other supplies to see you through an emergency, staying informed, and being ready to be a leader in your community when needed.

Meanwhile, Chipotle Hates You People...

Because a few of you insist on bringing your assault rifles into the restaurant when you're getting your burrito on.

If you're doing this, stop it.

Yes, it's perfectly legal in many states.  So is staring at a woman's cleavage and making comments about it.  Yet it's bad form to do both.

We want - and need - the not-so-armed community to like us.  You walking into Chipotle with your AR (which I dare say you probably shoot about as effectively as your people skills are) does nothing to promote the cause of firearm rights.

If you want to make a more positive statement, invite your non gun owning friends to the range some time and let them shoot your tricked out AR-15 or other gun of choice.  That's a far more productive use of your time.

Hurricane Season 2014 Is Days Away

I hope to get some updates from Jordan and others on pro tips on hurricane preparedness we can all use.  If El Nino makes an appearance, we can expect fewer named storms and hopefully some drought relief.
