Again, people are ignoring the fact that rural Americans damn near starved to death during the Depression.

And during the Dust Bowl years, the folks in that area weren't so self reliant, were they? The federal government had to go in and save their Bacon.

If the "apocalypse" hits, rural Americans will be in the same boat without a paddle as everyone else will be. They're no more resilient than anyone else.

Lol @ C-D posters pretending to be "Grizzly Adams." Stop it.

Oh believe me, country dwellers are well versed even today to survive. Too many city folk depending on welfare meaning they don't want to work and that would go for harvesting and hunting.

I LOL'd at that article.

There's no noise ordinances in rural conservative areas? LOL It's easy as hell to get thrown in jail by good ol' boy cops in rural areas these days. Almost every bad experience I've ever *directly* had with corrupt government officials and crooked cops were in rural conservative areas and not in the cities.

That article is off base in so many ways. The best part is that Republicans keep predicting doom and gloom. 5 years into eminent destruction of life as we know it and it's become somewhat of a broken record at this point.

Did you really just try to compare people involved in the dust bowl years to everyone in rural America today? You're talking about a relatively small group of people in one geographic area dealing with a man made catastrophic event...

This has to be one of the stupidest posts I've read since joining this forum.

The overwhelming majority of people in this thread aren't preparing for an apocalypse, we're preparing for the fallout of years and years of failed economic policy coupled with an ever growing government dependent group of people who can't support themselves even in the good times. I'm not in the least bit concerned about global or even continental apocalypse scenarios, I'm preparing for when the lights go out downtown and the mailbox money, government housing crowd gets hungry.

Yes of course, you can't deny that I'm correct so you resort to weak attempts at insults. Don't you want to fantasize about burning people's homes down a little more Rambo?
