Covering Yer Six

A nice way of saying Cover Yer Ass.
I'm sure everyone still has the images of the aftermath of Katrina and what happened to the people of New Orleans still burned into their minds.
Don't let that happen to you.
Everywhere I look I see a disaster waiting to happen to this country and not a word is said about it on the main stream news.
There is currently a global financial meltdown in progress, right this minute, that is going to make the stock market crash and following Depression that hit this country back in the 1930's look like a childs birthday party.

There is not a damn thing that can stop it, either, it is out of control and the bankers are trying desperately to hid it but it is a fact.

The Federal Government started advising people to start stock piling enough food and water to last two weeks a short while ago.
What's that? First you've heard of that?
It's a fact.
It used to be the standard was three days, now it is Officially Two Weeks worth.

The government can't and won't be there when this hits, they are out of money and manpower already and could really care less whether you live or die.
We have seen that first hand already.
It's up to you to take care of yourself and any loved ones unable to fend for themselves.

I am going to start putting up links to websites of people who have been working their asses off, getting prepared for disasters, natural and man made.

It doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg, start small but start NOW!

This first link is a great one. It shows you how you can start stock piling extra food for just ten dollars a week.
I will tell you now, I started seeing things going South way back in November of last year and I started in then.
I am certainly no expert, but there is a ton of information out there.
You may have evn seen an article here or there about the new Survivalists.
Of course, the first thing that just flashed through your mind just now was the image of some loner, back up in the hills with case after case of rifle ammunition and canned food.
Not so anymore, this is going mainstream in a hurry, as people are seeing the writing on the wall and are doing what they can to be more self sufficient.
Hell, I even planted a small garden this year for the first time in twenty five years and next year it is going to be at least twice as big.
It is not nearly as difficult as you might assume and only requires a minimal amount of time and effort after you get it in.

So buck up kids, you can do this easily enough and I am going to help you get started.

Now that I am not at work and cramped for time, here is another good post with suggestions. More to come later.


  1. Good post. And you ain't the only one who has come a long way in a short amount of time. But a lot of time has been made up and there is light at the end of the tunnel. And we are just trying to stay alive.


  2. I live in California earthquake fact a small faultline runs about a quarter mile away my house. The threat from the Green Valley Fault is quite minimal, but it's the Hayward that has everyone concerned. Right after Katrina, I rebuilt our Disaster Survival Kit as I realized there was no way the government would be able to assist in the event of a large scale quake.
    That and I'm not leaving my cats behind..we'll all tough it out together and fuck the cops!

  3. I keep a stockpile of food and ammunition, have for years since I was a Boy Scout - Be Prepared.
