Prepper News Watch for October 22, 2013

Prepper News Watch

There are red flags popping up all around us, hopefully you’re paying attention to them. On a prepper scale, I think we’re at a point where there is much to be concerned about. It’s primarily an economic worry, but that directly translates into disgruntled citizens venting their frustration. As an example, look back on what happened when the EBT cards stopped working for only a few hours, then look forward into November when the SNAP program scales back on the amount of money available to people using EBT cards (i.e., food stamps). There’s going to be a lot of unhappy campers whom are already frustrated with the lack of an aspiring economy.

While no one can tell you exactly what’s going to happen, I don’t think it takes a rocket surgeon to make some inferences. Get ready while you still can.
