China Prepares for War

This is an example of why any deals on weapon reductions makes no sense. We’re headed into another cold war with China that could turn into a hot war any time.

What should we do? We need to stop feeding the beast by cutting back on purchases from China. We also need to work with India to balance the equation since they can take plenty of industry if we’re going to give it away like we continue to do.

China Prepares for War from all directions but they are really preparing for war with the U.S.

5 gallon Pails- 2.44 each

Wal-Mart has 5 gallon pails for 2.44 with lids at .96 each. The prices may vary at different stores but this is a great price for storage containers.

I haven’t yet determined if these are food safe, but putting items inside that you want to protect from water and pests makes this a low cost option.

I’d still use mylar storage bags inside these to give you a second line of defense against rust, humidity, and oxidation. Amazon.com has mylar bags for sale with oxygen absorbers.

Rumor: Korea Near War

This one is getting thing closer to war all time. North Korea is used to getting their way and with the U.S. now looking weak and China looking strong it’s apparent that we could have a war brewing. As with anything of this nature, it could easily get out of hand and become regional and worldwide since all of the actors in this potential conflict are client states of large adversaries.

North VS South Korea

Meanwhile, our geniuses in Washington just approved a treaty with Russia that makes us take our belt off so that we have to hold up our pants while we fight. Missile defense restrictions will cost us millions of casualties if we’re ever nuked by missile delivery. This letter from a newspaper reader says it all very simply.

A citizen responds to news of the Start Treaty Signing. – I agree with him on this.

Pension Fund Collapse

This small town in Alabama has left a large number of pensioners on the side of the road. Anyone that relies on the good word of governments for their well being in old age should take not of this kind of dirty activity. As usual, no one will go to jail for setting this in motion by doing nothing and probably voting for more benefits rather than correcting the situation earlier.

I’m getting that Weimar Republic feeling all over again.
