I accepted the reality of our country's collapse in 2007. I have also prepped since 1998 to be responsible for my life.
If the country's economy collapses, which I think it has to, my personal world will continue to function well.
If you care about yourself and your loved ones, prepare to be responsible for your safety, food, water and health care. Insurance for your survival and spiritual welfare is No. 1, everything else is No. 2.
It is not hyperbolic or only something for them ‘Tin Foil Hat’ crowd, Look what is happening right before your eyes and take heed. Theres a Great Storm coming you can feel it.
Heed the words of the Bible:
“A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.”
NIV Proverbs 22:3
And when the trouble comes the only helping hand you will get is your own.
Sandys lesson is right before your eyes just as it was with Katrina; You either prepare and stand on your own or you can depend on a bunch of self-serving politicos, third class bureaucratic and chance to provide your basic needs.
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.
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. Maybe while you stand there you will get a chance to a prop in some politicos photo op and even get your picture on the national news.
For those who are just starting or are old hands at prepping you may find my Preparedness Manual helpful. You can download it at:
NOTE! THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD. I DO NOT MAKE ONE CENT OFF MY PREPAREDNESS MANUAL!
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, gas cans, cooking stove/fuel, 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.
Or as the Bible says:
“In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, but a foolish man devours all he has.” Proverbs 21:20
“But if any provide not for his own, and especially for those of his own house, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever.” 1 Timothy 5:8

There is no greater disaster than to underestimate danger.
Underestimation can be fatal.
