PREPAREDNESS

Are you Really Prepared? I thought I was until…

  by John Galt August 3, 2013 21:00 ET     A long presentation but well worth it, but what does that have to do with preps and yours truly, the author of this website almost committing a fatal sin and destroying a key portion of my survival plans? I ignored my own website and it almost cost myself and more importantly, my family. What did I ignore one might ask; well this: For all of my preparing, for the potential for an economic disaster, surviving in a situation similar to…


When the Watchmen Go Silent

  by John Galt March 26, 2013 05:00 ET    Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. – King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Pure Cambridge Edition .. “airpower holds out the hope to the nations that, in the future, air battles taking place miles away from the frontiers will be so decisive and of such far-reaching effect that the nation losing them will be willing to capitulate without resorting to a further contest on land or water…


It’s Time to Accept Reality that it’s Too Late

by John Galt February 26, 2012 21:55 ET Hard as this to believe, I’m no longer going to pound my head on an exposed nail in the wall and preach to the insane that the world is about to end. In fact, I have no intention of any longer telling the foolish that the world is about implode. I’ve warned. I’ve preached. I’ve provided the warning signs. The financial system is irrevocably broken and the idiots in charge continue to preach that all is well, keep moving. Why should I or…


Prepetorial #26: They Took a Village

by John Galt January 29, 2012 21:00 ET   Remember, the first portion in italics is fiction; for now.   Mayor Troy Alderson was confident that the 2015 spring harvest would save his community from a winter food crisis this time. The weather in Northern Kansas was unusually bitter this past winter but the rains came as needed when spring arrived and for once the corn, beans, wheat, and vegetables were projected to yield so much more than in the past decade. He figured it was because everyone in the small…

Prepetorial#18: Vienna Weiners

Prepetorial#18: Vienna Weiners By John Galt July 17, 2008 The little store marked “Joe’s 24” sitting off Highway 87 near Jay, FL has changed hands a few times in the last 4 years, but now in 2010, it became the meeting place for everyone crossing from Alabama into Florida and vice versa to get goods and gas. This little country store had become a symbol of the resilience of American ingenuity and business acumen because despite the food and gas ration programs, Joe always had enough gas and stock to meet…


Prepetorial #14: “The Arctic Express”

by John Galt April 20, 2008 Mike was stunned when his wife and kids accepted the offer to “get out of Dodge” and make a run for it. The “Springfield Slaughter” was all it took for the kids to be totally terrorized and the wife to finally say “okay prepperboy, you were right!” The FEMA food lines in Springfield, MO where over three thousand people deep and when the food ran out a riot ensued. That was met, of course, with harsh action from machine gunners surrounding the area and two…


Prepetorial#13: “Protect Our Resources”

February 7, 2008 By John Galt Jamie felt like a super safe scooter rider and ever so green for switching from her old car to her new Vespa. Once regular unleaded topped $4.59 per gallon she felt that she had to do something as her dad was paying for her college and auto expenses and it was just too much. The scooter her family got her for Christmas was such a nice surprise and would save everyone a ton of money. Now that everyone who had a car or truck was…


Prepetorial #6: “Take Two Aspirin and Call me in October”

By John Galt November 20, 2007 As Karen looked at her husband Mike in utter panic, the realization that the Medical Services Administration was not going to help their child had sunk in. Their son was in his third day of running a fever and still having a problem retaining liquids. After the  nightmare trip to the emergency room after he cut his foot open outside, they were hitting the wall and so frustrated as well as worried. The intern who treated their son basically told them to clean the wound…


Prepetorial #1: “I saw a flash”

By John Galt October 30, 2007 The following is my first “prepetorial”; a word I concocted to try to introduce the idea of “prepping” along with one of my editorials. The events in italic are completely fictitious and hopefully will never happen…. As I was meeting with my client in the town of Port Charlotte, about 45 miles from my home, the air seemed unusually warm for this October morning. The meeting did not go well as my customer was in no mood to purchase anything as he said “let’s see…
