Prepper News Watch for May 13, 2013

Prepper News Watch

We already know that the anti-gunners aren’t going to take no for an answer, so look for a renewed effort on their part to destroy more of our freedoms. There is quite a bit of evidence that they couldn’t care less about the facts, so we need to keep up our efforts to thwart them.

There are two strains of viruses that have the potential for going pandemic. Note that having the potential and actually doing so is not the same thing. The numbers on these are still too low to be all that concerned about, but that’s the thing with pandemics. If you’re not keeping on eye on what’s happening, you can get caught behind the curve. Now is a good time to be stocking up on your pandemic supplies, while the rest of the world is not paying attention to this.

And, of course, there is plenty of information hitting the wire to let us know that the economy is still in danger. Use this time to put yourself in a more stable position to better weather the coming storm.
