There is no time like the present to prepare for the worst. It is becoming increasingly obvious what the Global Elite and their lapdogs in D.C. have in mind for us. When the SHTF, living in an urban area is a really bad idea.
If there is no food supply, no water and no electricity it will get very messy and the Elitists will have the population reduction that they desire. With 900+ FEMA detention centers across the U.S. and U.N. troops already stationed here, survivors might not have a very bright future either.
I am just a few short months from turning 60. All I can say is that those pretty blue helmets should show up real nice through a scope. Nobody lives forever.
That's pretty much the same attitude I have. Do what I can to prepare and, don't go down without a fight.
After getting the RV, I can get an acre, put an RV stand on it and have a garden.
Gonna get a seal-a-meal thing, too.:)

Just make sure that you have a good water supply handy. One that doesn't depend entirely on electricity to pump it. If you end up having access to a well, here is a good place for you to buy a good hand pump.

LOL defiant and truthy will be heading out to set up their own society? Ha,ha,ha, these nuts illuminates the disgraceful fall from education that Texas has fallen.
Now back to what I have been saying all along.“IT’S THE ECONOMY STUPID”! Hammering your thick skulls with what occurs with the inequality of our laborers productivity and its wealth. As usual most agree with me as the Gallup polls are exposing as the number one culprit to our nations security. Action required to level the fields. Even the Independents agree.

In U.S., 67% Dissatisfied With Income, Wealth Distribution
Democrats and independents are more dissatisfied than Republicans
by Rebecca Riffkin
WASHINGTON, D.C.-- Two out of three Americans are dissatisfied with the way income and wealth are currently distributed in the U.S. This includes three-fourths of Democrats and 54% of Republicans.
President Barack Obama spoke about income disparities in a Dec. 4, 2013, speech, saying he wanted to prioritize lowering income disparity and increasing opportunities, particularly for the poor, during the rest of his second term. He most likely will return to that topic in his State of the Union speech at the end of the month. Gallup's Jan. 5-8 Mood of the Nation survey included a question asking Americans how satisfied they are with income and wealth distribution in the U.S. Few, 7%, report that they are "very satisfied" with the distribution, while 39% of Americans say they are "very dissatisfied."
Attitudes about the distribution of income and wealth are highly related to partisanship. Republicans, at 45% very or somewhat satisfied, express the highest satisfaction with the current wealth disparity in the U.S. Democrats are much less satisfied, at 24%, with independents closer in satisfaction to Democrats, at 28%. Furthermore, almost half (43%) of Democrats and independents express strong dissatisfaction with the current state of wealth and income distribution.
Dissatisfaction With the Opportunity to Get Ahead Remains High
The same poll updated a long-time Gallup trend, finding that 54% of Americans are satisfied, and 45% dissatisfied, with the opportunity for an American "to get ahead by working hard." This measure has remained roughly constant over the past three years, but Americans are much less optimistic about economic opportunity now than before the recession and financial crisis of 2008 unfolded. Prior to that, at least two in three Americans were satisfied, including a high of 77% in 2002.
In contrast to the question about income distribution in the same poll, satisfaction with the opportunity to get ahead does not show a significant partisan split, with 61% of Republicans and 60% of Democrats saying they are satisfied. Among independents, 45% are satisfied and 53% are dissatisfied. Independents are the only group in which a majority are dissatisfied with opportunities to get ahead by working hard.
Bottom Line
Obama will almost certainly touch on inequality in his State of the Union address on Jan. 28. This will certainly resonate in a general sense with the majority of Americans who are dissatisfied with income and wealth distribution in the U.S. today. Members of the president's party agree most strongly with the president that this is an issue, but majorities of Republicans and independents are at least somewhat dissatisfied as well.
Although Americans are more likely to be satisfied with the opportunity for people to get ahead through hard work, their satisfaction is well below where it was before the economic downturn. Accordingly, improvement in the U.S. economy could bring Americans' views back to pre-recession levels.

Oh one more thing. Obama is at 45.8% approval rate as the Tea Nuts are at 22%. Dragging the congressional approval rating down to 13%. Guess who is going to get the word from the voters come 2014?

Another incipid and misleading class warfare post from Burnt Foreskin. Thanks for reminding me that Obama and his pack of lies are being aired on the 28th of this month. I will be sure to watch reruns of The Walking Dead on that date. Maybe I will be able to see you on there as one of the cast. A zombie with an Obama t-shirt.

Har, har, har. Look you stupid Prog. We live in uncertain times and no matter how much disinformation and misinformation you post, nothing changes the reality. We are all at the
mercy of man-made and natural disasters.

You and the rest of the clueless libtard dolts are partially to blame for the inept creep in the White House and his wookie. The Global Elite installed a version of Pee Wee Herman for you retards to fawn and slobber over and you fell for it. You people are stupid to the Max.

Now, Obumbler is at 45%?. Polls don't lie, but liars can take polls. In favor of gun control? Go poll inmates at a prison. In favor of of libtard causes?. Go poll libtards. Get the idea nitwit?.

I still don't read your posts because, frankly, they're too long-winded.
