10 reasons to not have food storage.

Recommended Posts

The comment on the vid that he took too long to get to the point was well said I think. He sounds exactly like a guy I work with - sigh! I wish this was funny ........

 

Yea maybe. But I didn't think it was so drawn out that it wasn't worth watching.

Rayz,

we had to watch ALL of it to find out - WHY SHOULD I TELL YOU?:P

 

If you want to know about the dancing girls, you'll have to watch the whole thing for yourself! OK, no dancing girls. Honest, don't watch .........

ok so i kept watching for more anti prep videos. found a bunch of them.

wow i cant believe so many are so blind.

 

What's the old quote, "There are none so blind as he who will not see". What I don't get is how do you rest in such a state of denial? Surely, they don't really believe that someone will come along and care for them, do they?

Good video. I almost didnt make it to the end too lol. The part that got to me was when the lady asks what would you do if you were watching your child starve. Thats why Im doing this. I prob wouldnt care as much if I didnt have a child. She means everything to me and Id do anything to protect her.

in the same way as we can say that criminals can't blame society for what they are, because then they are blaming me, personally. i am a member of that society. is your prepping done for just you, or does it include your (extended - maybe) family. insomuch as you are your family and your family includes you, you are your society, and your society includes you - a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. i know that unfortunatel being proud to be gay is "socially" and politically acceptable, (since i know that i don't agree, and maybe you don't agree, surely that means that society is wrong), but it is not socially or politically acceptable to be a proud prepper. start in a small way - lobby, stand for office, write to national geographic, inform them that you think that ridiculing preppers is not going to get them fed when tshtf, write letters to your local newspaper and radio or tv station, informing thenm that you wish for better program content and unbiaised news. get your neighbourhood watch and / or resident's committee to become a prepper-friendly organisation. spread the word - not that you are prepped and therefore the go-to guy when it does all fall apart, but that enough is enough, society doesn't owe me anything, and i most definitely am not to blame for all of society's failings, but you expect that for all the taxes that get paid, your children deserve an education, not a seminar in STUPID! is your sherrif an elected official, that means he answers to you the voter, not to his party, or is he a policeman, whose focus is law and order. the one thing about the western world's liberties, is the fact that everyone seems to have forgotten that the elected official - from president, down to local councilman do not owe any allegiance to their party, but everything to the constituency and the tax-paying voters.

There was a link from that video to this one - "10 Survival Tips That Will Get You Killed" - very informative!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=db6v7YGizPk&feature=related

 

One of the tips was that you can't simply expect to rise to the occasion. "In a crisis, you will revert back to your level of formal training, your lowest factor." He points out that people who don't have military or other defensive weaponry training are, in a SHTF situation, at a huge disadvantage. He compares people who are recreational shooters to someone who has a car in his garage but no experience driving it, and expects to be able to drive his wife to the ER in a crisis. "React with knowledge, react with skill, that you get from training."

 

Hmm. I think I need a training budget in addition to a supply budget.

Oregon, depends on the "training" you want. You can just go camping and use the most basic ways to create a fire, bow drill/hand drill/magnifying glass, to train for that without really needing a budget; gardening, even container gardening, will help with food procurement; foraging for wild plants help you learn them before you need them; camping during a hunting/trapping expedition helps also. These are several "training" classes that won't cost much (except gas at current prices) and will help you acquire or perfect the skill sets needed. I do not know your full preps or plans, but look at "free" training as well.

As for firearms training, find NRA courses, Refuse To Be A Victim, Personal Defense Inside and Outside The Home and a basic pistol and/or rifle course will be economical starters. "Combat" training, unless from a personal friend (free) who actually KNOWS it, normally is a waste of time and money for prepping for a disaster if you do not have a major logistics and personnel pool to draw from.

Being able to keep your head will be better than "formal" training. By that theory, anyone who has been "trained" in the military will become roving bands of marauders because their basic formal training is to "combat" anything that poses a threat. I personally do not see the Vets on this board doing that; unless I misunderstand the intended message. Just my opinion.

As to why the media tends to take a passive "keep calm and carry on" approach is unclear but it ties back into the problem of people ignoring reason because in continuing to do what they have done for there entire adult life everything has worked out ok every time before.

 

IMHO they do so because mass hysteria can cause the fabric of local, state and national government to rip apart faster than an incoming {fill in the blank here} disaster. And government being an entity which holds it's own self-preservation in mind first and foremost, it behooves them to keep the public both calm and unaware. This applies to any large government, any time, anywhere.

 

And as to why the sheeple comply, they have a profound belief in both church and state being rescuer and provider. It behooves them to think of the state and church in the same way as grumpy children do. Do the minimum to keep the provider happy, complain behind their back, and hold your hand out for provisions frequently. Just IMHO.

 

Oh, excuse me. "Media" being primarily funded by the machine that is our goverment, and our economy is inherently dependent on those two entities. Therefore, they too have a basic need to dispel the public concerns.
