That's because preppers are being labelled as nutjobs in the media...I made the mistake of asking a couple of women at church if they would be interested in learning homesteading type skills. They were all for it until I let the word "prepper" slip. They now think I am a cult member or something. Sigh. I need a kick in the ###. I should have known better.
That is just how some people areI was just going to show them how to make laundry soap, do some canning and build a compost bin. It wasn't anything freaky. But as soon as I said "prepper", their eyes started to bug out and they kept looking at each other. Whatever. They better not come knocking if SHTF.
And we are being labeled that because the government doesnt want us to be ready. They want us to be dependent upon the aid they give so that we will stay orderly and be their little sheep. Well they sign my paycheck currently but i serve my country, my people, and my family. I do not serve my government...That's because preppers are being labelled as nutjobs in the media...
That's true. if everyone prepared for what ever disaster frequents their geographical area FEMA would be out of a job. But, the sheeple, and low-information people keep them gainfully employedPrepping is t bad. Its a word the gov't uses to insite an emotion in people to label us as anti-govt or nut jobs or something. What is wrong with being ready for a disaster? Nothing but independence from gov't aid... Govt don't want you independent.
Honestly I just started out with the garden and critters because I enjoyed doing it. It became my lifestyle. I loved the fact that I didn't have to rely on the grocery stores to provide most of my food. I started prepping for disaster reasons, such as hurricane, job loss, just whatever, but now the main reason is the government. I have disagreed with government before, but NEVER to the degree it is now. It's just become down right scary. . .Prepping is t bad. Its a word the govt uses to insite an emotion in people to label us as anti-govt or nut jobs or something. What is wrong with being ready for a disaster? Nothing but independence from govt aid... Govt dont want you independent.
