MountainBiker, your comment about the 50 MM people who learned nothing but simply went back to business as usual raises a question in my mind which is how did we lose our self-reliance as a nation? It seems that many, if not most are incapable of dealing with a real problem that hits them. My hat goes off to Amanda who showed a level head as well as resourcefulness which will both be treasures when the SHTF.
It will not go well for most people in the cities for many reasons, not the least of which is an expanded version of what Amanda saw in the power outage; that being people thinking only of their personal needs rather than thinking of how they can all survive together. Of course if everyone was to prepare, the entire situation would be much better. I can only pray that enough people will prepare for what is coming as we will need all the barrels we can muster pointing down range, for the enemies will be ruthless.
For God, Family, Country, & Liberty!
