How to get our country back without firing a single shot

No, the answer is not firing several shots, either.  I have come to believe the answer is to change the country from within ourselves.  So many people preach that they want to go back to a simpler time; a time when we were actually free, when our food was actually food, when family meant something.  However, a lot of those people are more into dreaming of armed conflict and the glory of restoring our country to the vision of our founding fathers.

The Benefits of Beer

I was out in the garage cleaning tonight, having a few beers (Lone Star to be specific) and I had a thought.  I remembered the monks in Germany drinking beer to survive the fasting of Lent.  I remembered thinking, when I first heard about it, that they were drunks looking for an excuse to drink.  After all, they are Germans.  Don’t get offended… I’m part German and I drink a few.  I’m also Irish and Scottish so I’m just screwed.  Anyway, I remembered writing a paper on the German monks while I was in college several years ago and remembered the nutritional value of beer.

Urban Security

For the first time in human history, people live in urban areas more than they do in rural parts.  This poses a security challenge.  In the case of rural security, things like clearing trees back from your home, installing security lights, keeping a simple to use, but reliable firearm handy.

Urban survival and security is different from in a rural setting.  The needs are different and the threat is generally different.  Keep in mind that a lot of these tactics can be used in a rural setting, too.  This article is not an exhaustive list.

Water Retaining Gardening – Hoogaculture

Well, I think that’s how it’s spelled, but either way here’s what it is and how it can help you.

Have you ever had a garden that just kept drying out and dying off?  Not enough water retention in the soil? Try this out:

  • Dig a hole where you plan to garden and dig it pretty deep.  Say 4 to 5 feet deep if you can.
  • Throw logs into the hole, filling it about half way. 
  • Fill the dirt back in and fill the hole

I know this sounds like a crazy thing to do, but follow me here.  When you put your plants in the ground and water them the first time, make sure you give them lots of water.  The water will seep into the ground and permeate the logs.  The logs act as a sponge and will slowly release water back into the soil as the ground dries.

But what happens when the wood breaks down and rots?  Well, for about the first year, the logs will break down, taking a lot of the nitrogen from the soil, so plant things that add nitrogen to the soil like beans.  Stay away from nitrogen hogs like corn.

The next year, the wood will still be there and will still act as a sponge, but it won’t deplete the nitrogen in the soil so you can grow pretty much anything there.

You won’t have to water it as often as the wood keeps a steady flow of water back into the soil until it dries out and you should see deeper root systems and more lush vegetation.
