    Saw this yesterday:

    I'm just curious; you preppers out there who insist the world is coming to an end and are arming yourself to wart off the hordes of people coming for you Cocoa Puffs...are you going to tell your neighbor "Go fuck yourself" if they knock on your door?

    This could be a fun topic.

    How bad is the collapse? If it's every man for yourself type of collapse, then wouldn't it make sense to assess whether helping your neighbor would harm you or benefit you (combine different skill to form a team)?

    You know what would be fantastic though - telling a big government loving liberal to go and rely on the government. I imagine that the schadenfreude amongst preppers would be shooting through the roof.

    it amazes me when republicans feel we liberals feel that we can't survive without a government hand out ... we dems have never relied on government hand out ... what we have said because we are a working government that we should take care of the unfornate when needed ... what makes you think that liberals don't have surviuvakl shelters too ... you seem to have these Ideas that we liberals never prepair for the worst... we are linerals thats what we do ...

    Fun iis the operative word. The world is not going to collapse. But if you are a real prepper (thank you for using the correct term), no one is going to come knocking at my door because they won't have any idea you are one.

    Therein lies the flaw in prepping, if collapse happens (I don't think it will) it will not be a lone liberal knocking at your door it will be an armed gang and they will have what you have. Better to be mobile than tied to a stockpile.

    Yeah that didnt happen in Nola during Katrina. Armed citizens resisted looters.
    Personally I think "the collapse" is a paranoid fantasy.

    lol... While fences make good neighbors in IMO, they also make good allies in some specific situations. Lock down the cross streets on your street and defend.

    Stock market is crashing. QE is coming to an end. If there is good jobs report today, expect another sell off in the markets.
