Education After the Collapse

Are You REALLY Going to Retire? Some Thoughts on Why You Shouldn't!

I live in a world that is always talking about retirement, the education system. Most teachers put in their time, retire and start a second career. Now, I’m not insinuating that educators just work for their retirement. In fact, I know many teachers who could retire, but they love what they do so they continue on. However, the fact is that retirement usually always comes up from year to year, usually at the beginning of the year.

Retirement also comes up in the mainstream. With our aging Baby Boomer generation and the current financial situation, everyone knows that Social […]

What the Government is Really Saying...

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.

I am grateful for my friends in the Preparedness Community, website and blog owners who made their readers aware of the questionnaire […]

The Unpredictability of People and What You Can Do About It

People are unpredictable. Sometimes, they zig when you think they are going to zag. Knowing how to read people AND situations is an important part to anyone’s preparedness. This is true if you’re just going to the store or you think there is a potential for a future where people won’t be too friendly. Spending a little time working through scenarios and situations is a great way to start problem solving what you might want to do to help keep yourself or your family safe if the need arises.

About 15 years ago, I started playing online games. I started […]

The Day Preppers Disappeared

“You never know what you had until it’s gone.” The saying is very familiar to those who have lost something or someone of value. For preppers, especially those who are flying solo because their spouse doesn’t believe in preparedness or would think that you finally fell off the deep end, one of the scariest scenarios is if we or our preps weren’t there for our family. 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
