Free as in beer

From the email inbox, USGS 7.5 minute topo maps in pdf format, set up to be printed on you printer.  Hillshading, meant to give you an idea of the topography, at no extra cost.

Given the previous post, these could be all sorts of useful.

Well I don't care for this one iota

Maybe it's time to measure me for a tinfoil hat.

Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a "critical infrastructure," giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

I didn't know that the jokers who brought us Too Stupid for Arbys had also given themselves control over the security of Wall Street and the electric company, although that does explain a few things.  But the elections?

I'm betting this election is in the bag already.  I, for one, am not looking forward to our new Democrat overlords.

A little something from the Washington Post on the American Redoubt

(Via the Drudge Report)

My-oh-my, but the word on preppers is getting around.  Even the Washington Post appears to take them seriously.  By the standards of the traditional old media, it's a pretty fair treatment of those who have made their way to Rawles' American Redoubt.

After the Fall

Like many preppers, I do have the guilty pleasure of reading "doomer porn", otherwise known as post-apocalyptic fiction (some would say science fiction).  One of the mainstays in this genre are tales surrounding how civilization will reassert itself after the collapse of the one we're living in today.

On the traditionalRIGHT site, Titus Quinctius Cincinnatus has written an essay on what he believes will happen in the area once known as the United States of America "after the Fall".  Check it out, it's food for thought.
