Worth a look, How To Start A 1-Acre, Self-Sustaining Homestead

Expert advice on how to establish self-sufficient food production, including guidance on crop rotations, raising livestock and grazing management. Your 1-acre homestead can be divided into land for raising livestock and a garden for raising fruits, vegetables, plus some grain and forage crops. Illustration by: Dorling Kindersley

Everyone will have a different approach to keeping a self-sufficient homestead, and it’s unlikely that any two1-acre farms will follow the same plan or methods or agree completely on how to homestead. Some people like cows; other people are afraid of them. Some people like goats; other people cannot keep them out of the garden. Some people will not slaughter animals and have to sell their surplus stock off to people who will kill them; others will not sell surplus stock off at all because they know that the animals will be killed; and still others will slaughter their own animals to provide…

VIDEO: YES! White Milwaukee Police Chief passionately and courageously speaks TRUTH about black crime

a12iggymom's Blog

Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn is a voice of one crying out in the wilderness!

Recently Flynn was verbally attacked by local black activists who claimed that he and his department weren’t taking the recent officer-involved shooting death of Dontre Hamilton seriously enough.
Flynn was accused of insensitivity because he was on his cellphone during a Fire and Police Commission meeting related to the death of Hamilton. Unknown to the activists was that Flynn was receiving details of a drive-by-shooting that took the life of a 5-year-old girl as she sat on her father’s lap. The girl Flynn was referring to was Laylah Petersen– who was actually shot in the head while sitting on her grandfather’s lap.
Of course- just like the case of Ferguson, Missouri, charges of racism were being irresponsibly leveled at Flynn and his officers.

VIDEO: Obama on immigration: ‘No force on Earth can stop us!’

a12iggymom's Blog

There have been a number of recent attempts to explain President Obama’s fumbling, disconnected management style as everything from fatigue – he’s tired, disappointed, perhaps a little depressed, and just wants to be left alone to enjoy the perks of the office for the rest of his term – to a ponderous, hesitant approach better suited to academia than the executive branch. Jim Gerghty at National Reviewran through four of these theories, beginning with the idea that “‘No-Drama Obama’ doesn’t have a crisis mode”:

He’s spent his adult life in so many relatively calm, methodical, slow-paced institutions — academia, state legislature, part-time law career, the U.S. Senate — that he can’t move or work fast. He’s perpetually deliberative, taking his time, getting sucked into “analysis paralysis”, looking for that elusive final piece of information that will clarify it all, ultimately basing his decision upon “what the experts say.” (This…

The States Can Stop Obama By Sheriff Richard Mack (Ret.)

a12iggymom's Blog

By now we have all heard the clichés and seen the posters from the “Tea Parties” espousing freedom, less government, and perhaps most of all, how the federal government had better back off trying to shove their national healthcare down our otherwise healthy throats. The truth of the matter is all the slogans of “Don’t Tread On Me” or “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death” or “We’re Mad As Hell And We’re Not Taking It Anymore,” don’t mean a thing when compared to reality; the real and actual answer to all the protests, marches, and outrage. The answer is in our own backyards! The States can stop every bit of it! That’s right, the individual States can stop “Obamacare” and all other forms of out-of-control federal government mandates and “big brother” tactics. If Arizona, Hawaii, New Hamshire, Texas, etc. want nothing to do with National Healthcare as proposed by…

Will Governors use their Powers to Stop Obama? By Rabbi Aryeh Spero

a12iggymom's Blog

Barack Obama may pay lip service to working with Republicans, but we know he’ll ultimately attempt to ramrod policies he hopes will transform America, but which actually damage her. Mr. Obama came to America with a chip on his shoulder and that splinter remains despite Americans twice electing him. A man with a gracious and forgiving nature would have been moved by this outpouring; yet, despite all this, he seems unable to shed himself of his anti-Americanism, revealing a lack of charitable character.

So, how will Americans protect themselves from his arbitrary executive orders that undoubtedly fall beyond his Constitutional limits? How will we be saved from orders of a fascist nature rarely seen before in American history, such as wholesale amnesty, treaties designed to help Iran manufacture the nuclear bombs that will one day be used against us, or his tying the hands of law enforcement trying to stop…

Euthanasia Doctors Seek Existential Answers at Auschwitz

By Katrin Kuntz

A group of Belgium’s leading practitioners of euthanasia recently visited the Auschwitz concentration camp memorial to learn more about death and humanity. The trip proved to be just as controversial for the doctors as it did insightful. Photo Gallery: A Trip to Auschwitz

Wim Distelmans is responsible for the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands of people. He’s a man who scrupulously studies his field of work. In London he visited the world’s first modern hospice, and he toured the first home for the dying in Scotland. He has even flown as far afield as Moscow to gain a better understanding of how we deal with death and dying. Now, his next study tour will take him to Poland. Distelmans is a palliative doctor from Brussels — a physician who helps people die…
