 Episode-2616- The Lessons America Should be Learning from CoVid-2019 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:25:16

Today we are not really going to talk about CoVid-2019 directly but more what it has exposed as weaknesses in the United States, what we should learn from it, why we likely will not and what that means you should do.  Hint on the last one, what you should do is mostly what I have said you should be doing for about 12 years now. The truth about CoVid-2019 is that it is not nothing but it is nothing like what it is being made out to be.  It is a respiratory virus and every year we have many such viruses that people get and are never even named.  CoVid-2019 is already showing signs of obeying Farr’s Law and going into decline across the entire northern hemisphere. Farr’s law was first formulated in 1840 by William Farr, one of the founders of modern epidemiology.  It has since been ignored in ­every epidemic hysteria since, the law states that epidemics tend to rise and fall in a roughly symmetrical pattern or bell-shaped curve. AIDS, SARS, Ebola — they all followed that pattern. So does seasonal flu each year. Like I said though this isn’t really about CoVid-2019 but rather the weaknesses it exposes.  What concerns me most about the current situation is what a truly serious, high mortality pandemic would look like.  Again this does not mean CoVid-2019 is a “nothing burger” rather that is is not as dangerous as claimed, so what is going to happen when something more dangerous then this is claimed to be, inevitability happens? Lessons and Corrective Action from CoVid-2019 Quote of the Day – “Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded”.  ~ F.A. Hayek The government is mostly unprepared for a disaster, how we could change that but why we won’t The American people are completely unprepared for a disaster, why that won’t change but why you should American corporations are mostly unprepared for a disaster why they may very well change that Yes the media is hyping this because they hate Trump and because they hype everything anyway Why I predict the current crisis will be relatively short and why that is bad in some ways Some opportunities that are coming from this Continuity of operations planning for corporations For every loser there is something on sale at a discount The very nature of this crisis means we know it will end Some real concerns I have of this crisis not going to waste I don’t think you will see a CoVid Vaccine rather a CoVid-Flu vaccine More gas on the fire for the war on cash More validation for government to have more “emergency power” The temptation to establish a “new normal” just like after 911 The cry wolf response if we have something worse in the future The loss of many small businesses during even a relatively short disruption A perfect set up for a take over of socialism in the US Final Thoughts   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum TspAz.com Fortunate Son – CCR   Sponsors of the Day Safecastle Royal The Berkey Guy   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2615- Hydroponics for Preppers and a Quick Corona Virus Update | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:46

Bit of a two fer today, going to spend about 10 minutes on Corona Virus an the financial hysteria going on right now and the amazing economic opportunity it is about to open up.  Yes I said opportunity!  It will get worse before it gets better and I think I may do a “what America should learn from CoVid-2019” show tomorrow so I will keep this all pretty brief. Today the bulk of our discussion will be about hydroponics.  We will discuss several different forms of hydroponics, why pumps often do make sense, nutrient choices, best crops to grow and more.  We are coming at this from a stand point of how well hydro fits the prepper mindset though, rather than just hydro for the sake of hydro. Join Me Today to Discuss… The simple but missed meaning of the word hydroponics The big advantages The honest disadvantages Sources of anti hydro stigma Ignorance Lies Crappy Plant Varieties Overselling of bullshit by zealots Why we should consider growing indoors especially as preppers The disadvantages of growing indoors and how most don’t apply to home producers The four most common techniques and what you should know about them Kratky NFT Ebb and Flow Deep Water Recirculating Why I now recommend most people start with Masterblend Fertilizer Plants you can grow to full harvest in 25-35 days Lettuce Basil Argula (stupid easy and fast) Spinach Kale/Yad Fah/Etc Bok Choi Sorrel Shiso Chicory/Dandelion Swiss Chard Yes you can grow anything but fast turn is best for indoors As a seed starting system nothing else I have tried even comes close Nothing I know of beats hydro for speed, quality, reliability and yes flavor A confession – I am embarrassed it took me this long to become a convert   Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Biltong for Breakfast Playlist for My Vertical Farm Playlist for My Hydro Seed Starting Stuff Masterblend Fertilizer Write Up All My Hydroponics Products I have Reviewed Have You Ever Seen the Rain – Song Facts Have You Ever Seen the Rain – CCR   Sponsors of the Day Butcher Box Backwoods Home   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2613- Why Homesteading is one of the best “Preps” you can Make | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:09:15

We have talked a lot about homesteading over the years, in fact one of my biggest early hit shows was called “From Home to Homestead” first published all the way back in July of 2008.  To make the point of how long I have been teaching this concept, that was episode 20 of this podcast and today we are doing episode 2613. I have taught this approach from two primary angles.  The first being the economic ROI by converting homes which for most Americans are consumers into producers.  The other angle has been the health and well being aspect.  I firmly feel humans are natural hunters, gathers, horticulturists and predisposed to animal husbandry.  While I have been accused of forcing that view on reality, 10s of thousands of years of human history seem to back up my claim. I have always said homestead was natural if you wanted to be a prepper, but I never really focused on it much.  My view is if something creates preparedness, just teach it for all its merits and preparedness happens naturally, the way it did prior to what I refer to as “the microwave generation”. Join Me Today to Discuss… Quote of the day – “I have always believed it better to be settled on a small farm, just sufficient to furnish the table.” ~ Thomas Jefferson The Corona virus mutated, why that is as bad as is being reported Today’s show is not about corona virus but please think about how everything we cover applies to the current situation The concept of homesteading is as follows Increase what you home/land produces Reduce what you home/land consumes Store sufficient resources to keep things running Have the skills and knowledge to build or make what you need and fix what breaks Develop small enterprises, entrepreneurial activities, etc Some thing I can rely on during a crisis, quarantine, etc. due to homesteading I can make alcohol including very high proof “fuel” We produce as many eggs as we could ever eat (protein and fat) lots of feed in reserve I can produce more vegetative nutrition then I could hope to consume I have a ton of seed and know how to make more via seed saving I have thousands of gallons of rain catch for irrigation and I own a Berkey filter I am on a well and septic system, not dependent on grid water I can grow food indoors, in a green house, on the land, etc Fruit season is about to come Wild edibles are about to be all over my land I have enough fish to feed us for months in my ponds I have a generator if the grid goes down and lot of fuel I know local resources to forage food where any risk of contagion is low to non existent I have herbal medicine knowledge My property is well defended against all types of “predators” I have knowledge and resources for multiple was to preserve food I have always said there is no downside to prepping, homesteading is a kind of prepping Keep in mind we may have shortages on somethings but not all things, and this too shall pass It helps us live a better life, if times get tough or even if they don’t   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Quercetin on Amazon If – Read by Sir Michael Cain My Give a Damn’s Busted – Joe Dee Messina   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2612- Ariana Marshall on Income though Amazon Print on Demand Publishing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:47

Today we are joined by Ariana Marshall to hear about how she started a business with Amazon’s print on demand services. In November 2017, Ariana sold her first apparel design using the Merch by Amazon platform, and a few months later published her first “low content” book on Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. She had NO graphic design background when she started. She’s learned much from this endeavor, including basic graphic design, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, video editing, Pinterest marketing, and Amazon sales research. She is a stay at home mom with an MBA, PMP and a handful of other pieces of paper, and she says that none of those had anything to do with her ability to grow income online. Persistence and willingness to learn new things (and fail) have been the most important qualities. Ariana’s other interests are travel (mostly vicariously at this point in life), horses and doing a little more vegetable gardening every year. She’s 44 years old and lives in the suburbs of Baltimore, Maryland. Born in Germany to a Foreign Service family, and serving in the Peace Corps as a young adult, she has lived in several countries and a number of U.S. states. Before settling into suburbia, she worked in international trade as well as once upon a time was a wrangler on a dude ranch, an independent gubernatorial candidate’s campaign manager, and a traveler on the old Silk Road. She began her online presence with a unfocused attempt at a blog. While not successful, that led to learning more about ecommerce and online business. Join us today for a great discussion on building income streams through Amazon MBA and KDP, regardless of where you live.

 Episode-2611- Feeling Exposed due to CoVid-19 – Good Here is What to do About It | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:21:36

I have attempted to be a voice of calm and reason with this current situation, as I always do.  As I stated last week the main reason is this audience should be at minimum prepared at a basic level.  What I have seen in general in response to “the corona virus” is a mixture ranging from some common sense to outright hysteria. The hysteria is coming from two camps, first is the main stream media and the political left.  This idiots see it as a chance to defeat the orangeman.  Additionally the main stream media always hypes everything they can to get you to stay glued to the TV.  I have been bemused listening to them tell us how important it is to “stay informed” as they repeat the same bullshit over and over with likely 50% of all media time dedicated to the same 5 minute spiel for the past 3-4 weeks. The other group hyping the fuck out of this is my contemporaries in the world of alternative media and the preparedness industry.   They are selling mostly fear and gear as far as I am concerned. I have said from the very beginning here, it isn’t nothing but it is nothing to freak out about.  The good thing though is that many so called preppers are getting into touch with now unprepared they are, and so are many Americans.  Unlike a lot of crisis of the week this one is going to be around a while.  It will impact most of us in some way.  So the concept of preparedness may actually go into some brains and stick this time, a man can hope anyway. Today I am going to talk about prepping for CoVid-19 but guess what folks, it is really just generalized pepping for anything. Join Me Today to Discuss… Quote of the Day – “Giving people self-confidence is by far the most important thing that I can do. Because then they will act.” ~ Jack Welch First lets once again get a grasp on why the infected rate is deflated making the death rate inflated Next let’s understand why things always look worse in the beginning with a new disease Keep in mind the BULLSHIT that was being said while I was saying to calm the F down Kids seem to be almost totally unaffected, why that is good and bad at the same time It is important to identify if you are part of the population that is more at risk Elevated over 65, serious risk to 80 and older Smoker Respiratory Issues Immune Compromised High Blood Pressure or other Cardio Vascular Disease High Density Living Conditions Now lets review the concept of commonality of disaster Now some things we can specifically do here… Focus on keeping your immunity up (vitamins B6, C and E) Again Quecertin showed promise against SARs and this is far more mild, it won’t hurt for sure Stay hydrated and stay active, walk, move your fricken lungs Yes wash your hands, and here is something most people are clueless about when say shopping If you get “sick” don’t panic and don’t run to the hospital because you sneezed a few times More generalized prepping Ammo, back up power, etc. sure but that isn’t really the big concern here Food – Have a 30-60 day supply, also you should do that anyway Buy shit you don’t have but should have online while it is in stock for a few reasons cost convenience lack of zombies (freaked out disease carrying people) Things you need to specifically think about for this, again but you should do it anyway Shit your kids eat you don’t think of as preps Hygiene items Maintenance meds Protective gear but let’s have a reality check about it too Cleaning supplies, sanitizers, etc but let’s not lose our minds Remember this shit always passes, be good to neighbors during any shortages, the world is not ending The lesson here for many preppers is, you are not a prepped as you think you are and any bumb in the road exposes that   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To F[...]

 Episode-2608- Common Sense Virus Preps and Micro CSA Crops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:42:15

I need to talk about Corona Virus and I want to talk more about my idea for micro CSAs as well.  So while they are not highly related, I am going to do both and honestly the things you should be doing for Corona Virus won’t take me that long to cover. I have said many times to not panic about Corona Virus and your basic preps you should have in place already will be for most people all you need.  This has led to a misconception that I consider it to be nothing, it isn’t nothing but it also isn’t that much bigger or a threat than the flu often is.  We need balance and common sense here.  So I will cover that today. Next up the thing you should be doing more than anything else right now is systems for self sufficiency and or systems for income.  Growing food is one way to do one, the other or both.  So I have been learning a lot with my hydroponics projects this winter, and while I don’t think I would run a business only on hydro, it would be one part of it, so we will look at it from that angle today. Part One – Corona Virus – AKA Kung Flu Common sense preps are all you can really do 2-3 weeks of stored food (30 days is better) At least 30 days on hand of maintenance drugs Reserve water but it is highly unlikely your water will be shut off A good multi vitamin even if you don’t normally take them Hygiene products in reserve Some misconceptions and some possible alternative solutions N95s filter at .3 microns, novel corona virus is about 1.5 microns Any mask with an anti viral essential oil may be somewhat effective Some research indicates Quercetin may be a valid treatment Remember you can order food online, Amazon Fresh, Thrive Market, etc. I know it is stupid to hear it over and over, but yes wash your hands Above all don’t panic and stop listing to anyone pushing fear based bullshit on this   Part Two – Ideas for Vegetable and Herb Varieties for a “Micro CSA” First again it really isn’t a CSA but I don’t know what else to call it The keys to making this work are Keep work to a minimum Keep freshness to a maximum Have the stuff people use anyway Also have stuff people can’t get anywhere Create seasonal variations and sell that with your marketing Have some things you can always up production on quickly if you need to Make crops do double or triple work for you Train your customers to do some of the work Some crops I will definitional include if I do this… Fennel Ginger Red Veined Sorrel Celery (pink if I can find the right seed source) Chard (in many colors) Three texture/colors of lettuce Arugula Wasabi Arugula Basil (multiple varieties) Micro Greens – Broccoli, Borage, Radish, Cress, Sunflower, etc. Purple Bok Choi Kale Dill Cucumber Peppers Tomatoes Water Cress Nasiturm Horse Radish Wild Edibles Some Final Thoughts   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Quercetin on Amazon We Got This – A Day to Remember   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2607- Curtis Stone on Living Free on the Land | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:05:43

Curtis Stone and I discuss a variety of subjects today all involving achieving as much liberty in your life as you possibly can.  This includes why Curtis has moved on from commercial farming, his new podcast called Liberty on the Land.  Using law to avoid compliance with other laws,  Setting up trusts and more. We also discuss the continued erosion of quality of life in the cities and the lunacy of the “social justice” crowd.  We talk about strategic relocation, the scale of permanence and lifestyle design. We then dig into potential solutions to many of the current problems like virtual nations, partnering with tribal nations and more.  We even cover some of the technological and economic flux that is coming down on us like freight train.

 Episode-2606- Topic Round Table Discussion with Nick Ferguson | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:59:14

Nick Ferguson is in Texas as part of a consultation tour and spending a few days at Nine Mile Farm.  We were sampling some amazing rum last night along with some far too good martinis and started talking about a variety of subjects.  With Nick and I of course that involved fish tanks and aquatic systems but we also started talking plants, plant propagation, the concept of micro CSAs, planning for an eventual economic shift and more. It all sounded pretty good after a second drink anyway so we figured it might still sound good today, we shall see about that.  ;>) So join Nick and I today as we discuss… Nicks new nursery business and progress on his launch sale The concept of a micro CSA and is that the right names since I don’t really mean a CSA Seeing homesteading as an investment, ie planting trees that gain value over time, etc. Why this may be the most important time in history to take and entrepreneurship path What to look for in a property and how it relates to your long term goals The importance of living frugally and eliminating debt Not letting perfect be the enemy of the good with technologies like say hydroponics The role of animals for homesteaders and keeping them “profitable” even if you don’t sell them What the next 5-10 years look like, may be and definitely at the same time   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com The Granddaddy’s Gun Club Rare Plant Store The Middle on Song Facts The Middle – Jimmy Eat World   Sponsors of the Day Ridge Wallet J.M.
