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.
I hope we have a while longer. I could use the time to be even better prepared.
I got your Tagline right here!
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.
Yeah? But at least now we are winning the war on coal. /sarc
Pretending that a Depression is coming is giving out some really poor investment advice.
The highways are packed because people have jobs and are making money. Flights are packed. Cars are selling. Home prices are up 12% nationwide in a year.
Major economic revolutions are in play, such as oilfield fracking, hyper-farming, 3D printing, DNA programming for new medical treatments such as benign HIV for childhood leukemia, Cloud Computing and Storage, Big Data, Web 3.0, electric cars, a private Space Race, and entertainment datastreaming services such as Netflix and HBO Go.
High-paying jobs are going unfilled because SLACKERS are too lazy and spoiled to move to work. Look at www.Rigzone.com for *thousands* of 6 figure jobs for people who don’t even have college degrees, for example.
Productivity is up.
...so the bottom line is that the U.S. economy is looking better each day.
However, a couple of great reasons to Prep are:
#1: MERS. Hyper-contagious new viri could change society overnight. And no, you won’t be able to go buy a handgun or ammo if you wait until cities start getting Quarantined. Hope you already bought some N-95 face masks!
#2: Near Earth Objects. NEOs are being discovered weekly, and two have made some disturbingly close passes to Earth so far this year.
One asteroid impact at the height of the Roman Empire changed History.
NEOs are low probability events, yet they have happened before (Tunkansta) and will impact again. If one hits, society will shift into a different sort of place overnight.
You won’t have electricity.
You won’t have gasoline stations.
You won’t have supermarkets.
You won’t have police response.
You won’t have prescription medicines.
Options for evacuating cities will be limited.
So it makes sense to have some level of preparation.
Morally, too. If we still had strong national morals and values, we might be able to weather the storm. But we don't -- it's a dog eat dog society, so WTSHTF, expect your neighbors to turn into stark, raving barbarians who will do whatever's necessary to take what you have. Don't hesitate when the moment of truth comes.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
IMHO, When the SHTF silver & gold won’t mean a thing. People will sell their soul for a smoke. They will give up their food, children....They will do ANYTHING they are told to do for a pack.
At this point I am actually looking forward to it.
The new and improved phoenix will rise from the ashes at some point down the road...
It will take a catalyst though....not sure when that will happen...
I’ve got Graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows in my GTHOOD bag.
When the SHTF, the little woman and I are having s’mores.
Those five things can be wrapped up in one word - - "culturally".
Congratulations, liberals... socialists... communists... Democrats.
Someone needs to write a book called the The Great Depression of

I am all for prepping, and I am covered for any given scenairo. (As should everyone else) However, sometimes I think a lot of people are making irrational decisons, based on fear rather than common sense.
ping for later
