Yeah, I think a lot of American's are going to be better off than some might expect if SHTF.

I belong to a hardcore prepper group and their main concern is the people that will be fleeing the metro areas and being innundated by folks less prepared than them, or roving gangs intent on killing for what the preppers have.

I know that the only thing we are actually needing at this time is the water purification ... we have the drinking straws and family size budgeted for this spring.

Dorsey himself admits that he does not have a personal supply of meals ready to eat stashed in his basement. “We live just two minutes from the store,” he said, “If something happens, I can drive right over here.”
:shocker:

Right...because the best place to hole up in during a SHTF scenario is a store everyone knows is stocked with tools and MRE's...

I think I saw that same article a while back when Obama had just been elected, but before he took office and came for all of our guns.

I'm ready. I have Obese neighbors to eat, a swimming pool to drink, and duct tape.
Not I.

I prefer lean meat.

As for the OP, either I posted here or on a duplicate thread, but can't find either one, so...

Don't think it's going to happen. There are too many good, rock-solid people sprinkled throughout the entire collection of systems, from those who manage our electricity, water, gas, and oil supplies to those who grow our food to those who ship our critical supplies.

I know where most of them will be if the SHTF: Doing their jobs. If some of them turn yellow-tail bail to go hide in a hole, I know where I'll be: On-the job training.

Well-armed, of course.
