Last Night’s Doomsday Preppers

I am a huge fan of the Urban Homesteaders. As I understand it, the Dervaes family didn’t initially want to do the program, but NatGeo sorta convinced them. Obviously, their little Homestead is a great example of self sufficiency, but most Preppers were sad to see there is no real defensive capability. And their proximity to major population centers is going to make them a huge target for looters. The best defense for them, heck, for all of us to pray all of our prepping is for nothing. Either the “zombies” never show up or we are all wiped out in the blink of an eye.

The older couple with all the guns went a little overboard, I think. Hey, if you like collecting guns more power to you. But a handful of people really don’t need hundreds of guns for Prepping. And I’m not sure a Christian should be stockpiling alcohol for trading. Medicinal uses are there, but obviously most people are going to use it to get plastered and do something stupid. Dealing in alcohol seems sinful in that regard. To each their own, I guess.
And, yeah, the guy really blew his thumb off. On camera. In front of his kids. With America watching. And we all look a little sillier today because of it. Not so sure I want to buy one of his razor sharp shovels, now.
