Disable FLoC 1.0.0

The Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) is Google’s latest tactic for tracking users across the web. This tracking works even if you have cookies disabled! They say the data is anonymous and safe, but, we’ve heard it all before. The only safe way for Google to handle user data is for Google to not handle that data in the first place. The plugin installed on our site sets an HTTP header that disables FLoC tracking on here, giving PrepperGroups.com visitors added privacy on the web.

:question: Why is this important?

Disabling FLoC is not a method to preserve our own privacy; it’s a method for enhancing the privacy of our site visitors. This plugin sets a header that prevents Google from tossing people into bins of interests (cohorts) such that they can be granularly (and even egregiously) targeted with who-knows-what (products, propaganda, etc) later. As history has shown, even anonymized data isn’t ever actually anonymous – and Google shouldn’t have this data.

Things are looking to get interesting sooner rather than later. If you are fine living in a larger city with fragile life support such as water and food, good for you.
Figure out how many tons of food have to come into your town every day.
We really like it here in montana where the wolves and buffalo roam. Room for more people of good intentions and willing to get along but that window is closing fast.
Say hello at [email protected] It’s a email server that is a little tiny bit more private and free and easy to get on.
Our montana governor and legislature has passed unlicensed concealed carry, no statewide mask mandate and no vaccine passport.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding its monthly meeting at Noon PM on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at Bandon High School, 8th Street, Bandon, OR 97411 (Behind the middle school).  We will be under the big gazebo next to the ball field. Dress warm and bring chairs.  THERE IS NO SEATING! 
 
The main topic is “UNPREPARED OR UNDER-PREPARED”.  Did anything happen during the past 12 months that caused you to use your preparations?  Did your preparations meet your needs or did they fall short?  Let’s find and fill the gaps in our preparations.  The world as we knew it is no longer and we must adjust accordingly.   
 
SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.
 
This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.  It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not depend on receiving outside help.  Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

Hello,

My family and I have been prepping for around 10 years now. I have acquired 90% of my families preps from Firearms/Ammo, Generator both Gas/Propane and solar, food and water cache to last 12 months, medical supplies to last for several years. I am a 25 year RN currently working on my FNP. I am a master gardener and I am skilled in raising live stock. My firearms skills are at a master’s level and I can repair just about any firearm.  We are looking for a stable preppers group that we can grow with.

Openings at Survival Sanctuary near Mt. St. Helens, SW Washington/NW Oregon

We are a little private Sanctuary in the foothills of Mt. St. Helens, east of Kelso, WA. House at 300′ elevation, 5 forested acres (alder, maple, cedar, fir, blackberries), directly adjacent to millions of acres of uninhabited forest land where we can freely roam (deer, elk, coyote, cougar) We are edge-of-the-wilderness based, not city, town, or farm-based, although we grow a large garden.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, (actual) disease plague (by self-isolation), climate disruption (although our weakness is forest fire), and general financial/commercial/political collapse (by self-sufficiency). We are also in fairly good shape for most Black Swans (earthquake, etc.) The Sanctuary is prepared to make the transition to complete self-sufficiency if necessary (gardening, hunting, fishing, herbal medicine).

Current members include a mental-health therapist, a mechanical engineer, a medical pathology assistant, and a plant nursery worker. We have many other skills among us.

In new people, we are more interested in maturity and good values than any certain skills, but you must be fairly well educated (for your age), open to learning, and willing to teach what you know. Emotional stability, intelligence, patience, respect, cooperation, and intuition are highly valued. We are NOT interested in control freaks, politicians, chatter boxes, or the judgmental, impulsive, lazy, or defensive.

Good health and mobility, and strong immune systems, are necessary. No drug dependencies (including recreational), significant food allergies, or claustrophobia. Politics and religion must be kept strictly personal. No costs (other than your own gear), but you must have transportation to get here (unless very close).

The Sanctuary may or may not be a residential situation for new members during normal times. For some members, it is a retreat location where we gather to explore, work, learn, and play. All members stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when necessary. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We would only consider youth who are capable of grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age about 8).

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion. At all times we operate completely in “family” mode, never in “landlord-tenant” mode. We will keep all communications confidential. Write to zimindrixli at the mail service that is a cheer of success or discovery.
