In the midst of this administration’s tyrannical attack on our God-given right to protect ourselves and our families via the proposed gun laws, no shortage of words have been spilled by people with views on either side of the issues.  One view that should be particularly important due to our government having systematically raped them of their 2nd Amendment rights in the last century, is that of the African Americans citizen.

For too long the voice of this movement has been ignored by the mainstream media and marginalized for voicing the unpopular, yet historically accurate story of what gun-contol does to keep human beings from truly being free.  At The Ready Center, we will be releasing a series of videos acquired from the internet entitled “African American Perspective on Gun Control” that share the voice a people-group who have “been there”.  Please do your part to share these articles on facebook, twitter, pintrest, google+1, tumblr, etc.

The Ready Center Freebie 1

Article submitted by Shirley Ready @ The Ready Center

I don’t know about a free lunch, but I’ve recently started to acquire a large number of free samples from companies who are willing to send their products directly to my house.  In fact, I was surprised to find how much free stuff is really out there for grabs! I don’t like to spend a lot of time searching for freebies, but there are a number of sites that post sample announcements for you.  Some that I’ve tried flop badly or are frustrating to use, while others have been quite a success.

Survival Kit The Ready Center

Article Submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center

For the past few pay periods you’ve been prepping by acquiring essential survival gear.  This pay period we recommend you pick up a backpack to hold all that awesome gear.  Could you really survive an emergency without one?  Definitely.  But realistically, most all of your emergency supplies will be scattered to the wind if you don’t have a place to consolidate them.  Do you really want to go around searching the house for your survival knife in the dark?  Do you really want to discover that your child found your emergency flashlight and used the batteries up in his/her latest midnight puppet show?  Do you want to be the guy rummaging through your kitchen, garage, and tool shed searching for (more…)

At The Ready Center, we keep all of our articles within the parameters of preparedness.  The following article falls within the security portion of preparedness  It is a repost of an article that was originally posted @ The D.C. Clothsline on January 3, 2013 by a gentleman named Dean Garrison.  This is a very BOLD article and BRAVLY written.  Please enjoy.


I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. (more…)

As the spouse of a prepper, when it all began (the prepping), I thought we were on the road to “Crazytown”.  Images of Brendan Fraser in “Blast from the Past” flashed through my head as I wondered what crazy bunker our family would live in.  Then Doomsday Preppers fueled my concerns for our children having a normal life.  Some of these people were a bit beyond “normal” and (more…)

Flashlight The Ready Center

Article submitted by Brian S. Kiefat @ The Ready Center
