Prepper News Watch for April 8, 2013

Prepper News Watch

Lots of news over the weekend. The H7N9 version of bird flu has the potential for becoming a global pandemic. We’re being told that ‘all’s fine, nothing to see here’ while they’re scrambling to stamp down the spread of it. Another case of watch what they do and not what they say. More articles about how it’s only a matter of time before the economy goes belly up. And, of course, they’re still trying to figure out how to take away more of our freedom, as well as our guns.

If you have find a news story or prepping-related article, send it in.
