Novus Ordo

Thanks Jay & Selco – good advice all around.  I enjoy conversations that skirt the edges of prepping, but am hesitant to let out too much at the beginning.  If some asks “Are you a prepper?” I usually just tell them I was a Boy Scout which sounds very benign to most people although the BS motto is “Be Prepared”.

Osagemarine – Had my assistant tell me the same thing.  He’s got a couple pistols and no family, but I don’t think I’d want him long term.  We get along professionally, but that’s it.  I’m hoping he didn’t mean it.


Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
