I think the firearms are not needed to be hoarded.

What is this?  Some sort of apocalyptic nonsense?  Right.  I'm going to buy diamonds, rubies, and emeralds, load up on gold, silver, and platinum, fill the cellar with bottled water and bags of seeds (which will do no good during the winter months), and wait for "the horn to blow at midnight."  I think I'll just enjoy a martini, have a square meal, and wonder what the Mayan calendar is contemplating next. Yawn. Back to some more fiction reading; it's more "realistic.".

The author of this article is pushing investments.  The smartest  poster was the one who chose books on how to survive.  Learn to garden, sew, and use tools, but have the printed knowledge in your possession of how to turn your simple skills into survival for you and those you love.  Your books should include building a loom, sewing your own clothes, raising animals, and veterinary medicine, usefule herbs and how to prepare them as medicines, canning and preserving, building furniture, and techniques for purifying and desalinating water.  It you stockpile 50 books and actually read them, and you purchase and pay for 30 or 40 acres of fertile land with access to water, you could virtually live off that land forever with a few animals and seed.  They talk about investments in real estate and put up a picture of a house in a community that looks like Las Vegas.  Areas of the country with little or no water will be the last place you would want to settle.  If you are worried about survival, you need to have a private well.  Pumps are run by electricity these days, but if you don't even have groundwater, you will be out of luck before you begin. You will need a lake or stream or a well that can be operated by hand.  It depends on how bad this crisis you are predicting gets.  Don't count on gas for your generator.  Just count on yourself.

I always wondered where people got all this wacky Dooms Day Prepper information and then one day I was channel surfing and heard this guy on the radio telling of the great financial collapse to come, then all the commercials were about selling you survival gear to survive the great calamity. It's all about making a buck off paranoid, scared and easily influenced right wing wacko's, who will believe anything anti Obama or anti government. " There's a sucker born every day "

So from reading this, we must be going back to the dark ages/wild west.  The real question is, do I really want to life in that kind of world?  These scare tactics create drama, ratings and fear. Wonderful world, isn't it?  Not much better than the middle east which we are soooo busy fighting.

 Over 30 foreign military bases under the United Nations flag are already set up in the USA . These bases are already manned with over ONE MILLION troops from Russia, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, Great Britain, Nicaragua, and Asian countries. They will have no qualms about firing on U.S. citizens. There are Russian tanks, military trucks and chemical warfare vehicles outside Gulfport, Mississippi. Hello? That was hit by Katrina in 2005. Anyone see heavy military equipment and foreign troops near San Francisco?

People stop being divisive, We are Americans.. We come together for the common good, We help each other, We care for one-another. We are the prodigy of the greatest minds, souls, and blessings ever in History. We cannot have good without the bad, We must work as a people to bring about what works best for All. Does anyone or Nation stand divided? Do we arm ourselves to shoot our hungry neighbor? Or do we work with our neighbor to provide for both. Go out meet your neighbors, you might find you like them. If not then at least be cordial. For they may need you, and you may need them. This Country works because it's people come together for the common good. "We the People" is our underlining motto. And it should not be taken lightly. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you", You are held accountable for what you do, not what others do. As Americans we hold ourselves to a higher standard than the rest of the World. We fought for that Right, I fought for that Right. We earned it. We purpose to do that which is Good and not Evil.
