Yes, we have no bananas...

AP reported a solar flare knocked out several radio communications systems Wednesday morning, including some radar and plane systems. It may be time to consider a Faraday Cage.
If I ever became a prepper, I would prep for 1 of 2 things: the loss of our electrical grid and/or economic collapse. Loosing electricity long term would cause the later. We would probably be shocked if a math genius calculated the probability of either of these happening within the next 10 years.
The funniest thing about this article in USA Today was the last sentence, which stated “Later in the day Elmira City Code Enforcement officials condemned the home for unsanitary conditions.” If there was ever a legal avenue for the local government to remove someone from their home, just let them condemn it. They probably believe it’s just another form of sanitation…taking out the trash.
Note to self: Never publicly hate on the current administration, especially when the Secret Service is in desperate need of positive news headlines!
Talk about a great actor. This guy was able to convince a British court that he was quadriplegic and part-time comatose. They caught him through video at the supermarket, which they decided to check because he had an active loyalty card.

It's interesting that you say "If I ever became a prepper,", in the context of many comments you have made, such as the one dated Oct. 20th. It sounds as though you are struggling with the whole thing, as am I, in terms of how far to go. I have put up a little bit of food, water, ammo, have bought a little bit of junk silver, things like that, but not in the quantities that I would need if the shtf really occurs. If even a short disruption in normal availability of water and other similar items should occur, you are simply storing it for looters and refugees if you can't defend it. I have found that one can spend an inordinate amount of time researching the topic of "effective prepping". I agree with you that lots of stuff, much of what you point out in this blog, doesn't bode well for the future.
