Investigating Drone Laws

Drones have many uses beyond their military potential. They can be used to deliver packages (as proposed by Amazon Prime Air), cover sports from fresh, exciting angles (FOX Sports being one), even performing tasks through terrains too rough for humans to navigate – like planting trees in Myanmar or aiding a search for missing people… Read More

Human Immortality

I was reading an article the other day about how a human born today may have the opportunity to live for a 1000 years.  It seemed pretty far fetched but Cambridge is a pretty respectable institution. So I started digging for the technologies that will allow this to happen.  I hope you take the time… Read More

Is Europe the Next Flash Point?

Well it is official, Britain has invoked article 50 and is on track to leave the European Union. But even before Brexit was on the table, political movements in Europe and underlying social issues have created a potent cocktail of flammables that feels ever poised to be lit up. Developments in Europe are particularly disturbing… Read More

Weaponized Nanotechnology is a Huge Threat to Humanity

In a recent Cambridge University conference, researchers revealed there is a 5 percent chance nanoweapons will cause human extinction prior to the year 2100. The prospect of weaponized nanotechnology is fairly new so elaboration is needed. Weaponized nanobots are smaller than a pinhead and can be programmed to perform a variety of lethal functions. These… Read More

Reviewing the Ironies and Impact of Wikileaks After the Election

Prior to the 2016 Presidential Election, discussion of Fourth Amendment Rights and Wikileaks was hardly the media's favorite topic. When Tunisia's Authoritarian Ruler, Ben Ali, was deposed, people hardly cared why. In fact, most Americans asked little questions regarding Ben Ali's fall from power. He was a dictator and it was only natural that a… Read More

Voaching and Mall Ninjas: Survival Lessons From the 2016 Election

Luckily American presidential elections always fall in the middle of hunting season so for many Americans few things make a better election detox than long walk in the woods with a gun. As I was doing just that, I considered if Donald Trump would need to wear any hunter’s orange. Bad joke I know, but… Read More

Let’s Have Victories Again

A coalition of mutinous Republicans have emerged from their elitist holes to join Democrats in a whining chorus of: “Never Trump!”. Quite frankly, I’d like to know where these Republicans have been during eight years of a disastrous Obama Administration. Where was the contrived moral outrage during Attorney General Eric Holder’s botched mishandling of the… Read More

A Toxic Brand & Trump’s Most Heinous Sin

Hillary Clinton is well on her way to 300 electoral votes in November and delivering a near Reagan-esque level ass-kicking for Democrats. As unlikely as it seemed only a year ago, a career politician as corrupt as the day is long will win the election, even with net favorable ratings in the negative double-digits.  She’ll… Read More

Jurisdictional Creep

Have the read the national newspapers today?  Did you watch Fox News, read Drudge, or get any of dozens of news flash emails?  Are you planning to attend the next city council meeting where you live?  How about the school board meeting?  How do you know what is going on where you reside?  Do you… Read More

Breaking The Law When The SHTF

 Why is it when there's a disaster of some kind people rush down to the store and steal a T.V. set?  I can understand a father or mother breaking into a store to get food or formula for their kids, but breaking in and stealing a DVD player after the hurricane hits or while the… Read More

Changes at SHTF Blog

Hey Ya'll, Today's post is about change.  Over the last year I've been wanting to take SHTF Blog to the next level, but alas, I simply don't have the time the blog needs to do this.  Young kids and a full time job eat up most of my "spare" time and writing blog posts takes… Read More

Prepper Expos – Prepping Gets Popular

Maybe I've been out of the loop for awhile.  Maybe I've been asleep at the helm.  Maybe the world has just been passing me by, but how it is that I didn't know about all the prepper expos going on around the country? I was surfing through the news the other day and read a… Read More

Gun Rights Battle in Connecticut

I don't know if you've been following what's been going down in Connecticut since Jan. 1, but what happens there could very well set a precedent for gun owners across the country. Call it ignorance, call it civil disobedience, or explain it away by saying, "they must not have known", but however you put it… Read More
