I Live In A Racist Town

I live in a small town. Some parts of that are quite nice. It is usually fairly quiet and I’ve seen deer in my side yard a few times. The downside is that there are a few “good old boys” in town and I feel like I always have to be careful with what I say. I generally stay quiet, because some of them live on my block, or worked where my son’s had summer jobs, and were in management positions over them.

What makes me write this? Just one of those casual episodes of hatred. I stopped to get gas and the middle aged Caucasian man pumping my gas said he was having a rough day. I told him I hoped it got better, which apparently was enough to make him vent his story.

The short version is that his sister, his son, and his son’s girlfriend, and their baby moved back into his mother’s house (where he also lived), and he got kicked out for claiming the girlfriend was drugging the baby.

Which is when he literally said “I’m not a racist, but I hate Mexicans.” He then proceeded to say that his son’s girlfriend (said Mexican) didn’t even use the bathroom, but peed into coffee cups and defecated into coffee cans – not because they didn’t have a bathroom, but because that was what “Dirty Mexican’s” did. Of course he brought up the wall as well.

He then screwed my gas cap on and I drove away, feeling sad and guilty. Sad because someone hated someone because of where they were born. Guilty because I didn’t say something stronger for fear of the social consequences.

I live in a small town. I have a son in high school. It is sad to say that I don’t want to “rock” the boat because I’m worried about what these same racist, bigoted small town individuals might do.

How sad is that?

Survival Day 18 (Bear Spray)

If you are heading out into the woods where there are Bears, or quite frankly, any large predators, keeping Bear Spray on your belt just makes sense. Even if you not sure if you might go into the woods, having Bear Spray available means if you have to go, you can protect yourself.

Is that enough justification to keep some Bear Spray on hand? Good, because you know what else Bear Spray is good for? When the world is ending and you want to break up the group of people menacing you, but you don’t want to really hurt them, or call a horde of zombies down on you with gunfire, Bear Spray is the perfect non lethal tool to disburse that cloud of people looking to steal your pack.

Just remember, never use Bear Spray as an offensive weapon unless zombies are biting people and the apocalypse has started, otherwise you will end up in jail.

Survival Day 17 (Window Lock)

What I really like about these Window Locks is that I can put two sets on my window and then push out the arm at the height I want the window to stop. I double that up on the other side so there is a stop on each end of the window for extra support.

With a screw gun and a few Window Locks I feel much safer leaving my windows open to air out my kitchen or just let in some air.

  • Rotating stop hangs over window track to prevent it from opening fully
  • Secure Tech TM locking indicator
  • Slide enables disengagement for periods of non-use
  • Sleek design does not detract from window décor
