WARNING: TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT! SURVIVORS WILL BE VIOLATED!

Laws are a fickle thing, no matter what they are called. It could be an ordinance, it could be a regulation, a statute, a law or any other name to describe what the proverbial powers that be are inclined to allow you to undertake on your own property. However, in the interest of complying with this same power, it should be noted that it is strictly, solely and entirely the responsibility of the individual to know any and all local laws, rules, regulations and/or other legal limitations that may be in place regarding their ability to protect, defend and/or otherwise secure their homestead. None of the articles on this website claim to be legal advice in any fashion and must not be construed, interpreted and/or otherwise accepted to be legal advice. In short, when it comes to defending your property, as usual, you are on your own!

While generalizing is … generally not a good idea, it is fairly safe to presume that the vast majority of the American population does not really believe in being adequately prepared for natural disasters, much less partial or even complete societal collapse. Often, those people who do believe in being well prepared for any potential calamity, are labeled as paranoid, conspiracy theorists and a host of other derogatory names, many unfit to print even in a publication such as this format.

Never mind that a “Conspiracy” is nothing more than two or more people conspiring to conduct an event … a surprise birthday party is an excellent example of a very benign type of Conspiracy. Operations Northwoods is perhaps among the most well known and best examples of a more malicious conspiracy. Despite the fact that conspiracies really do occur on a daily basis, and nobody … or virtually nobody appreciates being called derogatory names … what are the chances that the chit really could hit the fan?

What are the lessons we can learn from Trump?

There are a lot of lessons to be learned from observing politics and our “leaders” … who are in fact, by definition, public servants, but who continue to insist that the ability to win a popularity contest grants them some kind of special super powers giving them the insight and “right” to rule over us and demand that we follow their edicts under the threat of kidnapping or worse, up to and including the murder of innocent civilians. Never in our history however, has this been so apparent as it has under the leadership of Donald J. Trump. The question is … what is the real lesson to be learned? Surely it has to be a little more than just "Orange Man Bad!"

I will preface this article with a couple of pertinent points. I do dearly love Mexico, many of the people I knew, worked with and even lived with when I lived in Mexico, the food, the culture and virtually everything about the country as a whole … though I am not actually of Mexican heritage. Furthermore, the abuses suffered in Mexico, largely since the American government influence in their “War on Drugs” (read: further efforts to control the every day lives of common people in America and around the globe that are overtly egregious in nature) are certainly not helped by the interference from the American government anymore than they are by the lack of wholehearted interference by the Mexican government, its agents and agencies.

These entries should be noted as general stereotypes, but stereotypes that are based on logical reasoning from the facts at hand, despite there being numerous exceptions on both sides of the border.

On that note, I have good reason to believe that the American government works with criminal “families”, large corporations and even the drug cartels all in a very similar fashion. One or two key players are selected, and in the case of corporations, they are allowed to create the requisite laws and regulations in order to prevent the growth of too much in the way of competition.
