There is one thing that the recent Ebola scare has shown the American people. As a result, it should scare the crap out of the general population.
Here it is – They don’t know what to do! By “they,” I mean the government.
The reason I say that it should scare the crap out of the general population, is because “we” already know this. We’ve seen the inability of those in government to do anything of real value. You don’t have to look too far. Just think back to congress trying to pass a budget. Do you remember when the [...]
Recently, I put out a questionnaire to ask the Preparedness Community a few questions. The questions were:
What ONE thing do you need help on to FEEL better prepared? Please type your response and feel free to elaborate. What EMERGENCY is your biggest concern? Feel free to elaborate.

What would happen to our families if we just disappeared? Indulge me as I provide a few scenarios.
Scenario #1 – Economic Collapse and Food Storage

A reader sent a Youtube link to me of an old black and white movie called Panic in the Year Zero. It was released in 1962. I normally don’t watch old black and whites, but I hit play while I was doing other stuff online. As I was listening to the video, I heard some dialogue that peeked my interest so I switched over to watch it. I was surprised to hear some of the same stuff that I read when I’m looking for those excellent article to link up on Prepper Website. As I watched the movie, I opened [...]
