According to government experts, we need to store up food and water and emergency supplies for a month—or several weeks, at least.
The Katrina Crisis proved that the government can’t possibly supply our needs during a full-blown emergency. They are warning us, now, to prepare ourselves ahead of time. If we ignore this warning, we do so at our own peril. We, and our children, will pay the price—just like the Gulf-state victims.
In a full-blown crisis, of course, the important thing is to avoid panic. Stock up on survival supplies before a public panic strips the store shelves bare. Depending on the type of crisis, there may not be fuel for the truckers to re-supply the grocery stores with food. In that case, we’re in serious trouble if we haven’t prepared beforehand as the officials warned us to do.
If you pay attention to the news, you’re already aware of the potential crises looming on our horizon: the economic meltdown, the rapid decline of the US dollar, the “immigration time-bomb”, the “Nuclear Standoff” taking place in Iran, the rising cost of oil and gas, the increasing threats of attack from Al Qaeda.
Suffice it to say, the intense drills underway right now in the U.S. and in dozens of other nations, in preparation for the crises that may occur, will not be enough. The government knows it is unable to handle these burgeoning crises, hence, they warn you through the media….
And they hope you prepare.
