Knowledge & Exchange

Knowledge & Exchange
Ray Becker “This show” Audio player provided!

Knowledge & ExchangeI feel the need to change gears from what I’ve been covering to something that I believe is critical. Most of us were poorly educated and in fact, we were indoctrinated. This still goes on to this very day. When did this all go wrong? Why are we in so much debt that it can never be repaid? Continue reading Knowledge & Exchange

Bartering history and present day!

Bartering history and present day!
James Walton “I Am Liberty

Bartering history and present dayThe history of bartering dates all the way back to 6000 BC. Introduced by Mesopotamia tribes, bartering was adopted by Phoenicians. Phoenicians bartered goods to those located in various other cities across oceans. Babylonian’s also developed an improved bartering system. Goods were exchanged for food, tea, weapons, and spices. At times, human skulls were used as well. Salt was another popular item exchanged. Salt was so valuable that Roman soldiers’ salaries were paid with it. In the Middle Ages, Europeans traveled around the globe to barter crafts and furs in exchange for silks and perfumes. Colonial Americans exchanged musket balls, deer skins, and wheat. When money was invented, bartering did not end, it became more organized. Continue reading Bartering history and present day!

The Mormon Colonies of Northern Mexico

The Mormon Colonies of Northern Mexico
By Karl Young from American West Mag.
Host: Doug “They Were Preppers”

The Mormon Colonies of Northern Mexico

MormonsSouth from the border town of Columbus, New Mexico, the Mormon settlements extended like beads on a string all the way to the Sierra Tarhumare: Colonia Diaz first, about sixty miles below the Mexican border; thirty five miles farther south, Colonia Pacheco; then Colonia Garcia, and finally Chuichupa. All of these Chihuahua towns lay on the east side of the Continental Divide, though the mountain towns were not far from the western slopes of the Sierra Tarahumare. Across the mountains, in Sonora, were two other colonies, Morelos and Oaxaca. In name and place the towns were Mexican; but their origins were in the United States, and the story of their foundation was one of the last chapters in the history of the long flight of the Latter-Day Saints.

“Belated Frontier” on They were Preppers

Belated Frontier
By: Thomas M Griffiths
Read By: Doug aka GoatHollow

FrontierAny historian familiar with the march of empire across the American West should now be able to predict the succession of frontiers due to sweep across the Peace River landscape. That he might, in this instance, be wrong is not to his discredit, for destiny and environment have operated in another fashion here, although superficially the ingredients seem to be the same that have produced an orderly succession of fur-trade, cattle grazing, mining, and farming in the development of other frontier lands.

Hoof & Horn on the Chisholm Trail

Hoof & Horn on the Chisholm Trail
Author: By Joe B. Frantz
Host: Doug “GoatHollow”

Chisholm TrailOne hundred years ago, Texas had just come through a portion of that national death wish known as the Civil War, not so physically devastated as its confederates to the east but still neglected and bankrupt, a collection of returning losers at loose ends. Kansas had been bled almost beyond endurance, although it seemed to have some hope simply because it lay in the way of the railroad men who were trying to get across its mildly wrinkled face to the more alluring enticements nearer the Pacific ocean. Between those two states the world belonged to the Indians, a land set aside for them only because most white men thought it held no future. Continue reading Hoof & Horn on the Chisholm Trail
