“The middle class is teetering on the brink of collapse just as surely as AIG was in the fall of 2009 – only this time, it’s not just one giant insurance company (and its banking counterparties) facing disaster, it’s tens of millions of hardworking Americans who played by the rules.” – Arianna Huffington
I don’t agree with A. Huffington. I believe the whole world is teetering on collapse. In fact, many believe it has already collapsed, we just haven’t realized it. What do you believe?

Most Preppers are a very caring and giving bunch. But when it comes to a SHTF event, many plan on circling the wagons and taking care of their own. Honestly, I can’t argue with that.

Not too many us can throw down thousands of dollars on a new vehicle! Here is an article that can start to get us to think about what steps we should take.

For the longest time I thought it was just me. At times I feel like I’m on the edge, walking the fine line of “surely people can’t be so stupid” and “maybe I’m reading too much into this.” Life goes on; work, kids, sport practices, taking out the trash, paying the bills, it’s all the same.
