This is going to be short post! Many people are going to wake up Saturday morning December 22, 2012 with a hangover so bad they will wish the world had ended at midnight.
On December 21, 2012 the sun and the earth will come into line with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy: Just like it does and has every year since God only knows. At least that’s how I understand it. The world will not end on that day or any other day predictable by any ancient people on any continent on this earth. Go to bed your normal time….drink as much as you like and if you want to use it for an excuse to drink more, then know that the hangover you have is well earned.
The American Preppers Network website should lobby to have the name “Doomsday Preppers” banned from print. I know several “preppers” and not one of them is giving this day in history any more attention than they would any other day. Point is…if this happens…there is no reason to prep! Let’s change the name to “Hard Times Preppers”. That would be more appropriate than Doomsday.
I read an article today in a well known news website. The author of the article couldn’t keep her eyes off the prize. Lump everyone that calls themselves a prepper believes that Dec 21st is D-day and they are all crazy. The author is making the same mistake that everyone else is making. Non-preppers believe that we (the preppers) are only prepping for some cataclysmic event that will suddenly change our world into a wasteland. That couldn’t be further from the true.
There are many that I talk to everyday that are worried about our future. None of them worry about the next 2 weeks, but all worry about the next 2 years or 10 years or maybe even 20 years. If the universe was going to disappear in 2 weeks there would be little to prepare for. The truth is that we face several “Apocalyptic” scenarios that are far too real. Those scenarios are the ones that I am trying to prepare for. Those scenarios are the ones that frighten me into action. Those scenarios are the ones that my friends and family discuss every day.
The only thing that might happen after Dec. 21st comes and goes without incident is the History channel will be done with their 21 days of Armageddon and those of us who are serious about survival can go back to enjoying our anonymity!
