Ferguson Riots: A Mother’s Perspective
ClineFamily

We're not Italian, British, or African. We're all Americans!

I stayed up half the night listening to the Ferguson / St Louis County police scanner online as Ferguson erupted into a virtual war zone last night.

Not one minute went by, for hours, where there wasn't a new report of shots fired, or another building or car set afire, or another group of looters entering a building.

Who has the right to decide
your child's medical care?

Last night I shared this image on the Prepared Copy Facebook page regarding eight children in Oregon being forced to accept vaccinations.

Along with the image I made this comment:

"ONLY parents should direct their children's medical care. Forced medication is NOT acceptable in a truly free society."

December 21, 2012 – It’s Not the End of the World

Planet Earth
Happy Thanksgiving!

One of MANY things I'm thankful for this year is the world is NOT going to end on December 21, 2012.

Most preppers, including me, aren't concerned with next month's pending date with doomsday. Besides, how would one prep for the actual end of the world, other than getting ready to meet your maker?
