Theres a Great Storm coming you can feel it and the great cities of Europe are on the edges of it now, soon it will consume them.
Its your choice you can prep or you can stand around on a bridge waiting for FEMA to bring you a bottle of water, a MRE, a warm blanket and a kiss for your boo-boo and maybe you can even get your picture as you stand there on the national news.
Any one with half a brain can look around and see for themselves what is happening right before their eyes.
So listen to what the bible says: A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. NIV Proverbs 22:3
One of the things Selco covers in this article is the fact that many will not accept that a breakdown is occurring even as they watch it happening before their eyes. Why dont they realize it? Its caused by a condition called Normalcy Bias a mental state people enter when facing a disaster.
It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster occurring and its possible effects. This often results in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure of governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred then it never will occur. It also results in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.
A good article on Normalcy Bias is on our own ChocChipCookies Blog The Survival Mom:
You either prepare and stand on your own beholden to no one or you become dependent on others to provide your basic needs and become their serf. Me I dont want to be beholden to anyone for providing what is needed for me and mine. I certainly dont want to have to kiss some gubberment third class bureaucratic to try and coax some help from them, I dont want some jack booted thug herding me in line and telling me where to stand, sit, eat or sleep. And last but not least I dont want to be shut up in with a bunch of zombies and have to worry about not only trying to get basic necessities but having to fight to keep what I manage to get.
There is a Great article in my Preparedness Manual on building your on Bug Out Bag titled: A Highly-Mobility 72 Hour Kit-by Ward Dorrity. You can download the whole manual at:

For those of you who havent started already its time to prepare almost past time maybe. You needed to be stocking up on food guns, ammo, basic household supplies like soap, papergoods, cleaning supplies, good sturdy clothes including extra socks, underwear and extra shoes and boots, cash (I myself have been putting up change for the past few years both for the metal content and the fact that using change places to make what purchases you can will move you down the the list of possible marks during shtf), tools, things you buy everyday start buying two and put one up.
As the LDS say When the emergency is upon us the time for preparedness has past.
Again I like to recomend FReepers ChocoChipCookie Blog The Survival Mom (Please Blog Police let this one slide!) Where you can get lots of useful information like:
Also there is Ferfals Blog a survivor of Argentinas first collapse:
And there is Selcos Blog a Bosnian War survivor at:
There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger. Underestimation can be fatal.
And yet, despite all our misgivings, G_d is still in control.
After the big collapse, will I be able to get the five buck lunch at the DQ? How much time do I have? Huh,huh?
What do you want to bet George Soros has a prepper island he’s going to when his work comes to fruition and TSHTF?
Well then, let’s not wait until the last minute to get into a world war so we can get out of this depression.
you will have to ask the QM at HQ
I hope we have a while longer. I could use the time to be even better prepared.
It could be any day but no later than mid 2015. IMO
I got your Tagline right here!
Where do we hide our money?
The only marginally successfull “preppers” are those who are better armed than those who will convince themselves that it is “moral” to lie, cheat and steal from their neighbors, when the SHTF.
I agree the storm IS coming, but I doubt the people who failed to try and stop it, are the ones who will survive it.
While it’s nice to prepare well ahead of time, the date people should prepare for right now is the Zimmerman verdict.
money thats funny
Turn to Jesus, while there is still time and you have breath to call upon his name. These are the end of days, everyone knows it.
I hope it’s at least mid 2015, I’ll be better situated then.
I got prepared for that right after the Rodney King verdict.
One thing is certain: We’re living on borrowed time.
