Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — December 15, 2021

December
15th
is
Bill
of
Rights
Day.
The
Bill
of
Rights
became
law
on
this
day
in
1791,
following
ratification
by
the
state
of
Virginia.
We
encourage
our
American
readers
to
gather
publicly
and
read
the
Bill
of
Rights
aloud.

The
15th
of
December,
1923,
was
the
birthday
of
Uziel
“Uzi”
Gal
(born
Gotthard
Glas).
According
to
Wikipedia,
he
was
“…born
in
Weimar,
Germany.
When
the
Nazis
came
to
power
in
1933
he
moved
first
to
England
and
later,
in
1936,
to
Kibbutz
Yagur
in
the
British
Mandate
of
Palestine
where
he
changed
his
name
to
Uziel
Gal.
In
1943,
he
was
arrested
for
illegally
carrying
a
gun
and
sentenced
to
six
years
in
prison.
However,
he
was
pardoned
and
released
in
1946,
serving
less
than
half
of
his
sentence.”
He
is,
of
course,
remembered
as
the
inventor
of
the
famous
Uzi
submachine
gun.
Uzi
Gal
is
not
to
be
confused
with
Israel
Galili,
the
chief
weapons
designer
for
Israeli
Military
Industries
(IMI),
who
along
with
Yaacov
Lior
designed
the
Galil
improvement
to
the
AK-47.

For
those
who
have
asked… Yes,
we
will
be
making
another
batch
of
SurvivalBlog
Archive
waterproof/EMP-proof
USB
sticks
again
this
year. 
They
should
be
orderable
on
or
about
January
15th,
2022,
and
deliveries
will
start
around
February
10th.
This
year,
because
the
archive
has
become
so
large,
we’ll
have
the
first
10
years
on
one
stick,
and
the
six
most
recent
years
(through
Dec
31,
2021)
on
a
second
stick.
And
as
usual, 
the
bonus
book
selection
will
be
growing
again.
Stay
tuned,
for
details.

Note
that
the
archive
sticks
will
probably
sell
out
by
mid-February,
so
be
sure
to
mark
a
reminder
in
your
calendar,
to
get
your
order
in.
