Our Mission Statement:

It is the common intent of the owners, the associates of℠ and notably of the uncompensated content contributors to℠ to use this web site for the following primary purposes:

To disseminate information to those persons, farms, ranches, orchards and other rurally located and/or agricultural enterprises and entities for whom reasonable and responsible mitigation ideas, plans and principles are not realistically available; and,
Weather of Ambition

As the tomato and bean wither with the first frost, every one of the grape and gooseberry, and oaks with them, stand in witness with their great crowns of leaves already shed in humility, and sap drawn within their roots, having understood the meaning of that hour in which day and night are equal. But how is it that the crop of men, so wise in their own eyes, are so easily persuaded to ignore the seasons of their times, consistently withering in each era's first frost?

So it was for Jerusalem, despite the devoted suitors of her preferred destiny, and for Rome, despite her pride and limitless usurpations of men, that they would not survive the weather of mens' ambitions. What shall we then say for America who, despite her great pride and meritable achievements, leaves unanswered her debt for the smallpox blanket and her role as concubine for the merchants of Venice?

That a fruit is succulent is therefore not a measure of its steadfastness, nor is the friend of the daylight for certain a suitable companion of the night. Some men know the seasons and others do not.

Such things, then, I will tell those who scoff my granaries and woodstock, and far more shall the coming winds tell those multitudes of indecision lured by the paltry handouts of the company store.

So we see that centralized government and its hail of pretexts are also the weather of ambition, and self-reliance safe harbor for humility and the harvest it shall receive.

Peace, and the Fruits of Love to All,

Sue Moore:  Migration to Haven Part 2

At last we reach the exciting part. We were through with the buyer’s home inspections, lived through all the nail biting, had started to pack up our belongings in boxes and knew that the sale of our home was going to happen as scheduled. Everything was on track and the closing date was drawing closer. We felt a huge weight lift from our shoulders. My sweetheart was about to turn in his resignation letter at work – what a feeling!
NOW we could allow ourselves to begin to focus our attention toward WHERE we would move and WHAT we were looking to buy. During our research on what we wanted out of the new chapter of our lives – we realized that we did not want to live one place, and develop a retreat in another. We wanted most of our eggs in one basket so to speak. The one thing we both agreed on immediately was that we were going to live full time at what we call a “bug out location”. We felt this was the most viable option for us as we also want it to be our last home. Meaning that we plan to hunker down in the new home and ride out everything but maybe a forest fire or Russian invasion. Do not get me started talking about the rumors on that one.

An American Manifesto Rewrit

In US. vs. Castleman, decided March 28, 2014, the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Bill of Rights are no longer “Declaratory and Restrictive Clauses.” They are judicially now perceived as “privileges.” A “privilege” can be revoked for the slightest of legislative causes; but a “Right” that is “Forever Inviolate” We the People no longer have…

This newly announced precedent is beyond “dangerous,” the Supreme Court has just committed treason against the Constitution.

First of all We have to ask: "What is a Declaratory and Restrictive Clause?" Does the Second Amendment state: " The Right to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be Infringed?" Or, does it say : “The Privilege of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be Infringed unless a Constitutionally corrupt Gov’t. creates reasons to remove the Privilege?"

Harry is a middle aged man of 52 years, still smokes, drinks quite a bit, is about 40-50 lbs. overweight, 5”-10” tall, and has a waist of about 42 inches. In his youth, he was generally in pretty good shape and participated in high school sports. Today, he has a desk job with all the stress that goes with it. One morning, he awakens to get ready for work and plods to the bathroom to take a shower. As he passes the full length mirror, he notices for the first time what his lifestyle has brought upon him. As he stops, and looks into the mirror, he says to himself...

The website has a new feature which was requested by a caller to The John Moore Show yesterday, specifically we have now installed a full-featured and professionally designed forum-message board. Please visit to see and participate. As with all of features, it is free and is hosted on a secure server that is scanned daily for mal-ware. We still need to make a few small tweeks to the platform, but as far as we can tell, everything is working as designed. Users can post text comments as well as pictures, videos and other files for other members to view. If any problems are encountered, please contact us. Likewise, we are looking for suggestions for new categories so please contact us with your ideas - after all, the site does exist for the benefit of our subscribers.

I was brought up on a farm and the outdoors has always been an important part of my life. In my youth, I acquired the rank of Eagle in Boy Scouting which only reinforced my desire, in coming years, to learn more about the outdoors and the art of survival. Being an avid gun enthusiast for many years, I am constantly trying to find that ultimate reload combination and often experiment at the range. Hunting, fishing, weightlifting, construction, and just keeping busy have been a great passion in my life and I am very fortunate, during my "retirement" years, to be involved with all of them during my daily routine at Long Lake Camps. We have 26 buildings on site, so there is never a shortage of work! Of course, I had to make a living as well, and was fortunate enough to be successful in the engineering and land surveying business. My firm conducted hydraulic studies of rivers and lakes, water quality assessments, drafted storm water, sewer, and road designs, performed flood studies, property surveys, and hazardous waste remediation. These were just a few of the projects, along with land development, that I was involved in.

Steve Whitman: The National Debt; How Big is it Really?

03/26/2014 11:00 AM | Continue Reading

Anyone who pays attention to current events has been made aware that our country faces a huge financial debt that will eventually "bring the house down" when it reaches critical mass. Unfortunately, that is not very far in the future. Growing up in the 60's and early 70's, we were all concerned with the debt when it was in the millions of dollars. After all, a million dollars is a lot of money, and interest rates, inflation, etc. were all affected by the debt. So balancing the budget was always a priority even back in those "ancient times". As the years progressed through the 70's, President Nixon took us off the gold standard and the race was on. The debt was then talked about in billions of dollars and when it reached over 750 billion it was a "catastrophe waiting to happen" and according to all of the politicians, "something had to be done." Fortunately, the economy boomed, (“the tech bubble“) and money poured into the US Treasury and the budget was "balanced" and a "budget surplus" was realized at least for a little while under President Clinton.
