Putting Photos Online Could Blow Your Cover

It’s bad enough to know we’re being spied on by Uncle Sam and friends, but you don’t want to unknowingly give away more info about yourself than necessary to anyone.

A Soldier Says Many Preppers Will Die

I’m posting something a little different today, since yesterday’s DestinySurvival Radio was a “best of” show, due to the July 4th holiday.
