EPISODE- 155 I’M NOT DUMB ENOUGH TO FALL FOR IT ANYMORE !!

Hello everyone,

today’s episode is titles i’m not dumb enough to fall for it anymore. and what is it you may ask? it’s the thinking that electing any one at the national level and expecting them to make a difference is a waste of time. does that mean you shouldn’t vote ? NO! it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t but it means you could always go with the third party option.i also talk a lot about contacting your local legislators and the things you can do to try and make your voice heard.

EPISODE-129 THE BENEFITS OF LIVING YOUR LIFE FRUGALLY

Hello everyone,

todays episode is on  living your life frugally so you can weather the financial storms that life will throw at you. In my case it was a chance the company was going to unionize and the possibility of going on strike or loosing, pay or benefits.

i apologise for the poor audio this was made using my mp3 player in my car . all episodes from here on out should be recorded with my  voice recorder, so the audio should be much better. also i somehow skipped this episode so they should all be in order now .

EPISODE-124 WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOCIETY TODAY ??

Hello everyone,

today’s episode is titled what is wrong with society today. and by whats wrong i mean the fact that we are loosing some of the skills that made America great . i have always realized this but it was really made evident to me when i was watching hell on wheels. it is a tv show about the race to build the first transcontinental rail road across the United States. now i know its just a tv show but it dies depict some of the very harsh conditions that the people building it endured. while watching it i thought that there is no way  you could get anyone to do that nowadays. but anyway if you haven’t seen it i do recommend watching it. now today’s podcast is a little about that and allot about most peoples reluctance to do things for themselves, they want to do it the easy way and pay someone to build or repair their things, or they want to replace it with something new . the whole premise of my show is on resisting doing that  so i hope you enjoy today’s episode.

also i have been busy lately and have not had time to record and edit episodes lately but rest assured the podcast isn’t going anywhere.if you have any ideas for show topics send them to the email below , they are always appreciated .

EPISODE-97 DOING YOUR CIVIC DUTY

Hello everyone,

today’s episode is on doing your civic duty, and what i mean by that is by getting a hold of your legislators all the way from the state level to the federal level. they always claim to know what the people of the united states want but  they truly don’t  for example look at the affordable care act, most people strongly opposed it yet it made it from a bill to a law. so the only way you can let them know what we want it to contact them either by phone ,e-mail . or regular mail. i use the current gun debate as my example in this podcast and give examples of what i am doing to do my civic duty. also you can write all of your legislators in this link here at Ruger firearms .
