    CDC, FEMA and other State Equivelents give some advice and insight into preparedness - in the forms of 3 day supply packs and med kits...radios...etc

    More "FYI" than outright support

    then it is about the same in sweden, here the gov the last year or two started to more aggresivly ( kind of) inform people that they really should have stuff at home if there is a crisis, because the state might not prioritise them. and they exepect everyone to be able to deal with 3 days no matter what, but preferably longer.

    The US government suggests people have 72 hours worth of provisions in case of emergency. Anyone that "preps" more than that and/or has guns and ammo is considered a threat.
    Judge them by their actions NOT their rhetoric.

    I still wonder where they got the "3 day" figure from, not sure how it is in Sweden, but even heavily developed part of the US like in NYC have gone longer than that without power/water/sewage like during the Brownout in 05 and Sandy and a few Nor'Easters

    It should be more like 3 weeks - but cigs and 40oz is too important for most people in America versus covering their ass.

    oh I totaly agree. And few people would die in three days without food anyway, might even bee a good thing for many. But I guess it is more about getting people to think a little about diffrent unplesant possibillitys. but 3 days dont really cut it no.

    it was admitted years ago that "72 Hours" - and not "3 Days" - that it was psychologically the brink point that kept the sheeple from getting worried & concerned .... publishing the true facts that you need 2-3 WEEKS of supplies would blow pumpkin gourd heads off the sheeple ...

    and with the exact right conditions - they DO have it decently covered in a few days ... keep it a regional disaster at the very most - give them 5-7 days to prepare for the disaster - bring the entire resources of the FED to bear - concentrate on doing the mostest for the mostest and hide everything else ....

    God forbid the public not believe that the vaulted gooberment won't be riding over the hill to the rescue IMMEDIATELY ...

    Every year my state puts out a hurricane preparedness guide. Suggest 3 days of water,food,meds ect. I do have a tendency to go overboard just a bit.

    A few years back our government overlords made a law that during a declared emergency that those in charge may confiscate anything they want to utilize for the greater good. Home, car, supplies what ever. Much cheaper that having the sheepole prepare or to give FEMA an adequate budget for the sheep. Government just takes what they want and its all legal. Best to have a strategy in mind. And after watching Katrina your constitutional rights will be null and void. Firearms confiscation should be expected.
