The public image of "preppers" isn't good. That stupid TV show isn't helping the image either. I admit I was very concerned about the survival of the general public. Now that I've been here a few days, read some of the posts I'm rather impressed with what I've seen here. I've even learned a few things already & thought I knew it all. If it comes down to a need to survive it could turn out to be a good thing. Sounds rude but we would be adding chlorine to the gene pool. What remains would be the best society has to offer. Honestly... thanks everybody!
