2015/07/28

The TV show depicts what seem to be normal people spending a lot of money and going to great lenghts to get ready for the future disaster.  

Some are buying land in areas far away from the cities, where they believe food riots may take place, and building shelters.

Others are learning skills such as hunting and woodcraft because they believe it will be hard to get food and water.

Some are stockpiling gold becasue they believe after a fall of the American economy, the US dollar will be worthless.

And others are getting as many guns as possible, because they fear the violent times that lie ahead,

As one person on the TV show said " I don't intend to be helpless victim..."

Apparently many other people feel the same way.                                          (G.K)
