Food Storage, Water, and Cash for 1st-Time Preppers

April 12, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


If (when?) hard times or adversity comes your way, a food storage reserve and some saved cash money will be your good fortune as you make your way through the hardship.

I encourage you to prepare for difficulty in life. You may be doing fine today, but calamity is known to strike when you may least expect it. It happens, and it can bring down anyone.

April 9, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


As the dollar collapses, the affect it will have to the ‘man on the street’ at best will be a substantially lowered standard of living — or at worst it will be a complete economic collapse as the $hit hits the fan while we fall off the cliff into complete and utter social chaos.
