Doomsday warnings of US apocalypse gain ground

When The Architect sent me this article, I responded via text, "Hey... mind if we go shooting on Saturday? I need to brush up, especially now that I'm beginning to feel paranoid about this stuff."

He replied with, "Paranoia is an illogical feeling.  What you are feeling is FEAR."

And he's right.  I really like my lifestyle.  I like not having to fight for my food or my life every day.  If this country plunges into financial collapse, I don't think that everyone is going to take it well with flowers and teddy bears and love and whatnot.

I'm not looking forward to this.  I at least hope that the financial collapse can be delayed long enough for us to move out of a major metro area...


  1. We don't fear either because we know what is going to happen(it's all laid out in the Bible)and we've listened and been blessed by the Lord and we know he'll guide us and protect us.

    We heard and felt His call to become sufficient 20+ yrs ago and He blessed us with our small farm 7 yrs ago.

    I don't know when it's all going to come crashing down, but it is coming. Chin up, you're ahead of many, many masses of people.

  2. Violet, it is not paranoia, nor is it fear. What you are feeling is REALIZATION.You have opened your eyes and seen the reality of our (collective) future. You have decided to be pro-active about your personal future...learning new skills, investing in "beans, bullets and bandaids" rather than big screen t.v.'s and designer handbags. Good for you!

  3. Just remember to keep on prepping as if your life depended on it... It just might!

  4. Yes, what is tinfoil hat insanity one day is cold fact the next. The difference between paranoia and fear is a matter of days in these times.

    The good news is that it is a fundamental trait of preppers, which I refer to as "doomer's curse" that we *always* get the timing wrong. Many times, I have been certain that we couldn't survive the month, and yet, here we still are. Do not take this to mean that it won't happen, just that it'll take longer than you will expect.

  5. Kelle, SciFi, thank you for the kind comments.

    Bill, pretty much the only think I can hope for at this point is that it takes longer than I expect.

    Take care everyone.

  6. Lamb, thank you, too, for the comments. :)

  7. Good post!

    It's amazing how watching the mainstream media you often here how things are getting better - then that sinkingg feeling comes in that you know the truth. The truth that things are heading to a darker place - and those that prepare will get through it much better than those that do not.
