    Peace and Blessings Family,

    National Geographic has this show called Doomsday Preppers, and the folk in it are preparing for doomsday.

    Most of them are pointing to different doomsday scenarios, and featured a Brother in NYC, if no mistake.

    What it highlights most to me, is those that aint got no money (to prepare), get ready to die! :peekk:

    It takes money to prepare, and i can hardly guarantee myself anything for next week, let alone during doomsday!

    Oh Gosh.

    I guess now would be a good time for me to start that garden ... :running: ... and hope the plague don't hit my greens!

    Oh Gosh.

    It's kinda funnee to me too, folk trying to run and hide from death.

    iono ... has anyone else seen this program ... it does make you wanna build a bunker or sump'n ... :eeek:

    anywho ... love you ... :kiss:

    :heart:

    I have a younger brother who watches this stuff.

    It's quite shaming because it shows the depth of programming going on in the African mind.

    Black folk have dealt with doomsday scenarios many, many times over. (And I don't mean in America, I mean in Africa)

    Yet, these shows convince us that we can't be independent and do for self.

    It's very, very shameful.

    Brother ABSiblings ... there is a part of me that thinks like you are thinking ... yet i see all the alarms as well.

    Shows like this, the reality of our situation (yes, we've survived, but if we don't do better, how long can we hold on).

    The question must be asked ... and yet, at the same time ... there is a lot of smoke and mirrors, slight of hands, all of that.

    It leaves us scrambling, not sure what way to go next ... do we pay the rent, or put a down payment on a bunker ... :eeek:

    For most of us though, the decision will be easy, as we don't have the money to prepare on this level.

    It was doomsday during Katrina for many of our people, and many suffered and died. Yes, we know it well.

    hmmmm ... iono ... 6 of one or half dozen of another ... we all get to pick ... i reckon.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Well, I meant in Africa. But if you mean in America; it's pretty evident that we'd die in the case of "Doomsday." Black folk are dying without a "Doomsday."

    The first lesson of survival is cooperation. The reason why you can invite 20 people to a potluck and have 25 different dishes is because Black folk do not cooperate on anything!*

    *Just teasing. We cooperate on somethings--I'm sure. :p

    Just use the bunkers and food stores of people who get caught while they're out and about. Richard Pryor had a little segment about how long a warning there was before a nuclear attack. He said he wanted to die with a woman and pretty much everyone attending the show with a bomb shelter would have some happy neighbors.

    1st off, it depends on what the doomsday event is. In most cases, surviving may be more cruel. You would litterally need a food supply for at least a year and an ability to grow crops. Plus, you would need enough ammo to fight off those that would take the food. Not to mention the wild animals. It is very expensive to survive an extinction event.

    in my community, doomsday wouldn't be much of a change. we deal with it everyday. like when the local government decides it doesn't want us to live in a particular greenbelt and sweep through cleaning out all of our gear.

    homelessness is great for preparing one's self for dealing with disaster.

    you didn't mention: doomsday by economic collapse, nuclear war or natural causes?

    Always prepare for bad times.
    Everyone can handle the good times, but few can weather the bad.

    Yes, I have preparations as well as places to go and people to meet up with in the event of a disaster.

    To do such requires a change in mindset.
