Practical Prepping: Don't Come To Me For Help

Coronavirus lockdowns. Riots. Racial tension. Elections and political divide. Gun control. With all the challenges facing our nation as of late there are still many people who live by the mantra "That will never happen." They see the violence, illness and economic hardship that other people face daily and yet they still believe none of it will happen to them. Despite the division and violence that we've seen across the country these people laugh at preppers and gun owners and mock them as being fear mongers. Yet when the riots began a few months ago how many anti-gunners and non-preppers did we see running out to buy guns and stock up on supplies? Prepping is not a required lifestyle, nor is gun ownership. But it's unfair to mock or criticize those who want to be prepared, especially given the political and social climate of our country.

I don't place any faith in Mainstream Media. I will however from time to time, use Mainstream Media to show you the differences between Mainstream Media broadcasts (fake news) and REAL NEWS broadcasts. Anyone who is "awake" will clearly see these differences. These videos may contain copyrighted material. Such material is made available for educational purposes only.
