Thread: The End is Nigh says 3 million americans .

  1. #1

    Default The End is Nigh says 3 million americans .

    The End is nigh (is it only in america where one can find so many crazies in one place ?)

    Meet America's 3 million Doomsday Preppers.

    One couple living in fortress with stockpile of guns and 25,000 rounds of ammunition (just in case!)

    Man keeps 1,000 fish in his swimming pool so he has plenty to eat in the event of the apocalypse



    There was once a time when preachers standing on street corners predicting the apocalypse would have been deemed crazy.
    Shoppers would cross the street to avoid the archetypal banner-waving man loudly proclaiming 'the end of the world is nigh.'

    Today, however, it seems we're not quite so convinced that the rantings aren't actually prophecies for a doom-laden future.
    As many as three million Americans now fall into the category dubber 'preppers' - people who are making detailed plans for the end of the world as we know it.

    The preppers are an ever-growing group of survivalists who take extreme measures to prepare for a major catastrophic event.

    One man from Phoenix keeps 1,000 tilapia fish in the deep end of his swimming pool which he plans to eat when a massive solar flare 'knocks civilisation back to the Stone Age.'
    While a couple living in a gated-home with 25,000 rounds of ammunition have enough food to last half a century.

    More than 300,000 people a month visit the movement's website, survivalblog.com, which catalogues how people are preparing for the worst.
    The website has been set up by James Rawles, a former US Army intelligence officer, who is one of the movement's leading figures.


    Speaking to The Times, he said: 'Should the worst happen, it's become apparent that the Government can't provide for everybody. And now that realisation is becoming more widespread.'

    Events such as the recession, 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina has added to the growth of the movement.
    The Red Cross has also reported an increase in the number of people learning first aid.
    The group is now the focus of a new reality TV show on the National Geographic channel called Doomsday Preppers which will be broadcast in Britain later this year.

    The programme features Megan Hurwitt from Houston who practices fleeing the city by foot in case of an oil crisis.
    ---
    Tim Ralston, an ex-military man living with his family in Arizona, is one of many ‘Doomsday Preppers.’ His garage is full of food, water purifiers, weapons, and a trailer full of essentials ready to be hooked up to the family car should disaster strike.
    About once a week, he takes his two sons out to the dessert for target practice. His one son has been practicing with an AK-47.

    ‘You just never know,’ he told ABC News. ‘God put you on this Earth for certain things, and for me, it’s to make sure my family lives and I can help other people.’
    Among his stockpiling are water purifiers, a vast array of artillery, and canned chicken that is good for 15 years.

    ‘These are not just a handful of people living in the mountains,’ National Geographic Channel’s executive vice president of programming Michael Cascio told the Wall Street Journal. ‘They’re everywhere.’
    Robert Vicino, a real estate agent, is garnering a significant profit from the fears by building luxury bunkers.
    ABC News profiled Mr Vicino while he was in the midst of converting a Cold War bunker into a high-end escape pod, with many of the units already sold.

    Meanwhile, Family Radio president Harold Camping has incorrectly predicted the end of the world for decades.


    The Christian radio broadcaster said it would come to an end first in 1988, then again in 1994, and twice in 2011 – once in May and the other time in October.
    None of them, obviously, came to fruition.


    But the Bible Guaranteed it .

    What's wrong with being prepared?
    All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. -- Thomas Jefferson

    When the people fear the government there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty -- Thomas Jefferson

    For massive solar flares? Lets be honest, the guy who owns the web site and the people who supply these idiots are simply fostering fear to make money. The loons, having read too much of the first testement, are fearful. No doubt mainly right wing types, who have a naturally larger fear response in the brain.

    Any End of the World story has me yawning before the end of the title .
    However , for many years I have wondered when the next Polarity Change ( Geomagnetic Reversal )would occur --- and this will happen . Grade one Science .

    In that spirit , I commend the You Tube interviews of Dr Paul La Violette who is a world renowned , if maverick , astrophysicist and an out -and -out very clever man .
    For those with short attention spans --- forget it .
    But anybody who perseveres will be nicely pole axed , and the language used is OK without the need for multi degrees in abstruse disciplines .
    And suddenly Mayan predictions are not as bonkers as you possibly first thought .
    Unfortunately in this scenario there are no survivors -- as the Dinosaurs "attest"

    Do people really do that?

    Lock themselves in a shed with months supply of baked beans with their only entertainment tv/radio and cleaning the gun in case the commies dig their way in.

    Why yes, yes they do! Ask our very own Rev.Antichrist on this very forum for a Preppers update. Oh, and it's Muslims which are the bogeymen du jour.

    3 million out of a population of over 300 million doesn't seem so bad, honestly.
