VIDEO: Facebook Censorship: What They’re Not Telling You

Will Facebook’s new ‘flagging’ feature allow corporations, governments, and other agenda-driven political forces control the flow of information? Facebook censorship is something concerning, as a lot of people get most (some I’m sure all) of their news from Facebook.

Biometrics…

This is such a tough topic. Maybe some would consider me to be “old” (or at least old school) about certain things, but I don’t even like the idea of swiping my phone instead of my bank card at a store. So boimetrics? I think it’s crazy. There’s something about having physical control of an […]

Venison Jerky

Jerky is a great SHTF snack, as it can last well over a year if it’s in vacuum sealed bags. I personally love venison jerky! This is how I make my jerky, fairly simple recipe, easy to make. I tend to keep it simple when it comes to my jerky recipes, as that’s how my […]

High Fructose Corn Syrup RENAMED!

Yes, one type of high fructose corn syrup has been renamed to simply be “fructose.” The issue here is that high fructose corn syrup and fructose are most definitely NOT the same thing.
