    General Prepping. Unless you have a crystal ball, lots of things can and do happen.

    There are so many ways we can get whacked on a personal, regional, national and global manner.

    Considering the civil war has already began, it would be myopic to think it won't go hot.

    We know the rest of the world is looking to get rid of the petrodollar. When that happens, we'll start looking more like Venezuela.

    Here, we are entering hurricane season. Supposed to be a more active season. Ruh-Roh.

    You say that the civil war has begun. I'm not seeing it here in Georgia. The news did a poll and said that Democrat Stacey Abrams
    could beat Republicans Casey Cagle or Brian Kemp for governor in Georgia. I think people will try to make an idiotic political point about having the first black female governor so that we forget about the issues... like Abrams being for reparations (though she, the media, and the Republican candidates have yet to mention it.)

    There is a lot of prepping going on all around me, but by the political climate, you'd never know it.

    Inevitable government overreach leading to civil war
    and
    Natural disaster

    Both will occur eventually, just takes time.

    I posted this in another thread. This about sums it up. There are a lot of balls in the air. One is bound to hit the ground sooner rather then later.

    My list as I look around at what is most likely:

    1) Grid down by any means ( Terror, computer hack, rogue country, war, etc. Not if, when. )

    2) War ( Probably sooner rather then later )

    3) Civil unrest / Civil war ( Pick from a myriad of causes )

    4) Economic collapse

    5) See any or all of the above

    I have natural disasters covered short of Yellowstone or a dinosaur killer so if anything, I am speeding up my Prep's.

    I began prepping (having never heard the word) when I was maybe eight years old. It all started with a book called My Side of the Mountain. It was a fiction book about a young boy that ran away from home and lived on his own in the Catskills Mountains. As I got older that morphed into the Boy Scouts on to being more of a survivalist, worrying that war would one day be on our shores. Then, after EIGHT long years of Obama, the people did not rebel. We've accepted tyranny, socialism, and every other evil - even embracing some of it as our own, but we do not stand against those who would destroy this country. Guess my next poll is to ask people what would make them actually stand against evil.

    They might say when the government is going door to door. That will never happen. Everything is being taken from us on the installment plan. We are like that analogy of the frog being put into a pot of lukewarm water, put on the stove and the temperature raised a degree at a time until the frog is boiling and cannot get out.

    I went with other: Localized disasters, most likely weather related but which may include some civil unrest, or the potential for temporary interruptions of utilities, services, or supplies. I am definitely not a doomsday prepper waiting for global thermonuclear war or a complete end of all modern civility on a world wide scale. I have been through a few ice storms and hard core blizzards, a couple tornadoes, two riots, several days without power or water, and being displaced from my home due to a gas leak. So I would say I consider myself more of a practical prepper.
