I'm in a position of not having a family living with me to be concerned about, and I certainly don't expect to live forever anyway, so I'll be danged if I'll skulk around in the shadows. I was born in this neighborhood, I figure I'll die here when the time comes.
We had a major flood here a few years ago with houses washed away. We're prone to flooding so you'd think people would eventually figure out what needs to be done instead of standing around picking their noses. After it, we had a community meeting and even the old timers dropped their jaws when I said we'd done xyz before the water hit. How many brain cells does it take to get the boat out of the water or float it, bring everything up from the bottoms, pay attention to the weather, watch the only road out so that you get your family OUT before it's impassable. Hellooo, the tv gave a time table. Seriously, people, seriously? Sure, I helped them and brought stuff to my house to dry out and repaired things, etc. but next time they do nothing and wake up to water in their beds (true, more than one house) then why should I put myself out again and again (yeah, I would but still, grrr)? And the collective mentalies go downhill from there with just day to day stuff like they think their outdoor trash fires and campfires are somehow exempt from fire bans. I'd rather duke it out with the zombies alone than team up with these ninnies.
Back to the OP, yep, the minute the msm said the mother was a prepper, you knew they'd go straight to the spin cycle. You knew the minute hussein said we've had too many of these shootings that this was his excuse to go after the 2nd. The Mayans got the date wrong. TEOTWAWKI was election day 2008.
