Prepper News Watch for October 16, 2013

Prepper News Watch

In the Special Attention section below, there are links to several articles regarding a shutdown of the EBT/SNAP program on November 1st. If you haven’t heard of this before, it’s the current food stamp program. The recent short glitch in this system already has people on edge. As economy is holding together by mere threads, it won’t take much to break them, and if the food stamp program runs out of money or stops functioning for more than a few hours, we will see chaos in the streets (think Greece).

As mentioned yesterday, don’t panic. However, you do need to realize things are extremely unstable in America right and now is the time to be checking and rechecking your preparedness plans and supplies. I’ll be talking more about this on tonight’s podcast.
