Hello, my friend and welcome back! The more I think about it, the more I realize that things could get really ugly in the next 60 days. Sure, the Government is promising to help everyone out, but when was the last time you saw the Government do anything quickly? My concern is what might take place in the meantime. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
While President Trump has done an amazing job or turning this country around and helping people in every area, he is still just the President and can only do so much. Everyone and their brother in Washington will be trying to find a way to take advantage of the situation and profit off of it. This can only mean that those who need the help the most will have to wait and that spells trouble.
Two weeks seems like a short time, but when your pantry is empty and you have children and loved ones to feed, people will do what they have to in order to survive. This means that we can expect robberies to skyrocket, as well as murders. People will not sit idly and watch their families go hungry. They will do whatever it takes to feed them, including taking food from others.
Over the next 2 to 8 weeks we will start to see the fabric of our society begin to break down. Not only should you avoid going out in public as much as you can, but you will need to keep your home and property safeguarded from those who would seek to take what you have. As far as I know, no one is really addressing this issue. It’s like they think if they don’t address it, then it won’t happen. Unfortunately, history has shown only too well what desperate people will do.
As Preppers, we have all prepared for just such events and know just how bad it could get. Do I think that this will all go back to normal after 60 days? No, I don’t! In fact, this could go on for much longer depending on just what the Government does and how fast they do it. While we are not currently not under martial law, things could easily degenerate to the point where it is needed.
My advice to you, is to prepare for the worse and pray for the best. Maintain situational awareness at all times and make sure that you secure your home and all of your contents. Do not go out in public without a means to defend yourself. Do not trust strangers and be very aware of strangers in your area. This is going to get a lot worse, as people not only run out of food, but run out of needed medications as well.
The average person only keeps 72 hours of food in their pantry while many millennials only keep 24 hours worth. With the stores depleted of food and medicine, not to mention water, things are going to get bad my friend. Stay home and be on guard but please remember that these people are just desperate and looking to survive like you. Think twice before doing something you can’t undo, but defend yourself and your family at all costs.
I honestly believe that America will recover from this, the only question is how soon. Because of the great cost of this China Virus, many countries will be pushed to their breaking point and expect the “Good Old USA” to come to their rescue. My concern is what will they do when we can’t? Trump has made it clear that it is America first and if we can, we will help others.
China is using this as a way to try to hurt the US and the American people, including trying to turn our allies away from us. What will they do when it fails? With every nation hurting, just how far will this go before something happens that tips the balance of world powers? Will one of the Rougue Nations try to take advantage of this and launch some sort of attack against the US, while we are struggling? Will Russia,malong with China, decide that now is the time to attack America? God, I hope not, but only time will tell.
For now, all we can do is take one day at a time and use our training and preps to get us through this. As I said, safeguard your home and property, as well as yourself during this terrible time. If you have prepared properly, you should be able to ride out this storm. If not, use what you have very carefully and make them stretch as far as you can. May God bless and keep all of us as we face this Pandemic together.
Well, that’s it for today and I hope you find this post helpful. Until next time my friend, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!
