Episode 106, Brushfire Plague

Doomsday fiction is the genre, and author R.P. Ruggiero checks in with an action-packed and realistic novel of what happens when a fast-moving and highly-lethal virus overwhelms suburban Portland, Oregon and the rest of the world.

Lots to enjoy here, and lots to learn about prepping too, and how to handle yourself and the situations that unfold when society is breaking down from the effects of a relentless disaster.

Grab a copy of the book and settle in for a great read. Thumbs up!

Rounding out this show is my take on the real and phony news, including Romney's 47% gaffe and the attack on the Libyan embassy. What should we be doing about radical Islam? Not what we are doing, that's for sure.

Episode 105. Collectivists Everywhere Are Getting Theirs

I know things are looking a little grim these days, to people in the know, but it's time to take notice of an important fact--collectivists everywhere are receiving their comeuppance.

Collectivists in Greece, Spain, China, and elsewhere have been reaping the temporary benefits of government-committed theft for years, but the end of that enjoyment has either arrived or is just around the corner.

But don't be fooled by the American election, which is once again being touted, tiresomely, as "the most important election in our lifetimes." It isn't the epic struggle between collectivism and individualism that some portray it to be. It's a struggle between hitting the wall at 81 mph (Obama wins) and 78 mph (Obama loses).

Nope, elections won't do much to stop Bullet Train US from hitting the wall at the end of the box canyon. But hitting the wall will shatter the collectivist bonds enslaving us.

There's a time to prep (now) and to act (soon). Just make sure you're ready.

A version of Supercollapse by Matt Bracken

No podcast for this posting, just a link to a thoughtful and disturbing scenario described by a favorite author of TSOP, Matt Bracken.

Read this sadly plausible scenario for the breakdown of American society and the deeply unfortunate splitting along racial lines.

A better description of Supercollapse than mine, I think. Posted by Western Rifle Shooters Association, a great blog in its own right.

Bracken's description of what causes the breakdown makes it seem likely. They might be referred to later (or while in progress) as "the EBT Riots", as in triggered when the millions of EBT cards in use today (46 million at last count) stop working.

Read the comments too. Last-minute preps aren't going to help you much if this scenario breaks out anywhere near you. Plan accordingly.
