Skip to comments.Doomsday Preppers are Socially Selfish (emergency mgmt. college)

You might wonder why someone like me, who has been in the business of encouraging disaster preparedness for a very long time, is so critical of people who are doing just that. Its because they are being socially selfish preparing themselves and the hell with everyone else. Instead of spending time and energy making changes that would benefit the larger community, in their very narrow focus of loyalty they are more concerned about themselves.
Emergency Managers cant afford that kind of attitude. It is diametrically opposed to everything we do. Our job is to prepare individuals and communities and jurisdictions and regions and ultimately the globe for disasters, knowing we wont always succeed. I could find statistics about how unprepared some citizens are, and then show you hundreds of active and volunteer CERT teams preparing whole communities. In major disasters (think 9-11 or the Christ Church earthquake or Superstorm Sandy), survivors for the most part WANT to help each other.

In the next blog post she sez it is only you ‘doomsday preppers’ that are selfish. Disaster prepping is ok. She got hammered for the original post I guess.
Semi-apology follow up post:
This meme has to start somewhere because they need to lay the groundwork. They will confiscate the stuff.
The ‘emergency manager’ is retired from Marin County (Ultra Liberal Stronghold).
All generators food guns will be “nationalized” in a super disaster.
People never thought this could happen in America.
I have watched some of the shows.
Seems a bit pointless when one does not know what the disaster will be.
Everyone, of course, should have certain items always on hand, but most of these people seem really nuts, not to mention the time that they are spending on preping for God only knows what.
Well, HELL Val...we just thought everyone else could get help from Barry! After all, HE’S the community organizer!!!
Sounds to me the subliminal socialistic propaganda messages are taking hold upon every facet of America now, all they rant about is sharing, no man can have more than his neighbor, all must be equal in their misery.
The little red hen and the hard working ant are now public enemy #1!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder what the other farm animals and the grasshoppers will do once the “locusts” descend upon us all?
Well at least they will suffer in the end.....
After Katrinna the mayor declared martial law and grabbed guns from citizens.
being able to feed your family and take care of yourself when the lights go out is SELFISH??
As a cow, not a stuipid one, I find your comment hillarious. :)
I wonder how many serious survival situations Valerie Lucus-McEwen has actually personally been through.
If people voted for Zer0 and expected him to take care of them then I will help them not. Let them place their demands on Zer0 and not me. Those who work and are the “Makers” I will try to help.
There. Fixed it.
You knew it was coming.
