Prepare: A Tale of Two Preppers

Prepper number one:

"Honey! I got to talk to you! I was just online on one of my forums. You know, DoomPreppers, and one of the veteran members, Skull of Liberty, told us something big is about to happen.

Skull was listening to the End of Freedom radio broadcast on his shortwave and they had a guy on there who used to be in the federal government and part of a highly secret organization.

He said the Chinese are getting millions of acres of farm land in the USA for the billions they loaned our government. The Chinese are setting up camps and rounding up Americans to work the land and they have a bunch of UN troops helping them! Skull of Liberty says the Chinese are working in concert with same underground aliens called the Grays and its all part of a New World Order with the global elite to eliminate the population according to the ancient runes of Zardoz.

Look, Skull says we need to get a retreat, a five year supply of food, some more guns, ammo and bug out! I got a bag packed for you and I am going to go clean out our bank account and buy a pallet of MRE from the surplus store. Get the kids! Fill water containers! Get in the car! We got to bug out of here!

Honey? Honey, where are you going? What do you mean? Skull of Liberty said so! He's one of the most respected members on DoomPreppers! Honey!"

Prepper number two:

"Hey, hon, can I talk to you for a second? Say, I read online at USA Today that the weather has affected the crops for this winter. They say the price of bread may jump to a couple of bucks by April. Also, gasoline down at the corner went up five cents a gallon since this morning. I am really worried how this is going to affect our budget.

I was thinking this might be a good time to get out our grocery list and make a special trip to Costco this afternoon. We might want to get flour, sugar and so forth now before the prices go up and make bread like we used to do. Also, there are a number of other things we don't have on the shelves that we all like to have, like dried fruit, oatmeal, beans. You know how much the kids like your homemade cookies.

What? Yeah I know we still have quite a bit of stuff put back already, but remember when we bought all that toilet paper and dog food in bulk? That sure helped when my hours were cut back last year. Now that we have some extra money, we should really stock up again, especially if the prices are going up. Why don't you take a look online and see for yourself? OK. Hey, let's fill up both cars before we go to Costco...."

Spend enough time online and it is easy to sound like person number one. However, to those around you, that may not be a good idea and it might be unnerving and not very convincing to those around you.

Just a little something to think about...

JD I see option 1 used far too much out there and I think it does drive some people away that are genuinely interested in Prepping ( I for one have been guilty of option 1 a time or two ) Option 2 by far should bring in more people but it is still overall I think a somewhat shunned lifestyle but one that is changing as events keep unfolding.

Not many people believe in NWO, Grays, FEMA camps, etc and when they talk about them, they get real excited. That scares off everybody else.

Getting in people's faces and calling them "sheeple" doesn't fly too well either.

There are enough reasons to prep for the everyday person on the street. Once reminded, they generally come around for 90% of all prep needs.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Zdon't you know that George Bush and Bill Clinton attacked us on 9/11 and then FEMA took those people off those planes and put them in camps so no one would find out that robots flew them into the WTC? And that George Bush created hurricane Katrina with chemtrails and all those people from New Orleans are not dead but in FEMA camps? How can you be so naive?

Naw! Just kidding!!!
