I can sense it. That is, the renewed drum beat picking up in mainstream news sources. A new fear. “The Delta Variant”.
I have been waiting for the next shoe to drop. Covid-19 has been going away. Here in the U.S., the lockdowns have been dropped. Businesses have opened. The masks are coming off. Freedom is returning. Life is seemingly returning to normal.
But, not so fast…
(insert audio of phonograph record needle scraping across the vinyl…)
I am so tempted to go down what some would consider ‘conspiracy’ road. But I will refrain. Instead, from a purely preparedness standpoint, I just want to warn you about the “Delta” variant.
Why? Because if this takes root here in the U.S. like “they” are saying it will, the next round of problems could be at least the same if not worse than what we all just went through. I said “could be”. Not “would be”.
I don’t know if “they” are fear mongering for the next round of control, lockdowns, and economic/financial destruction (the onset of “the great reset”). Is this yet another bioweapon release like the first one?
I do know this… Americans are fed up with being locked down. Losing their business. Jobs. Their freedom. And so on. What are Americans going to do if and when “round two” is pushed upon them?
Regardless, we might return to shortages. Maybe worse. Maybe lots worse. I sure as heck hope not! I’m tired of all this.
But, being preparedness-minded, and keeping my ears to the ground (so to speak), I’m wary of what “might” come our way. And it might be sooner than you realize, due to the “messaging” that I’m hearing.
There’s not a whole lot of data that I’ve found about the “Delta” variant. Except lots of scary proclamations… Most from mainstream news sources (for what that’s worth).

My point here is not to hypothesize about the how and why. Rather, to simply prepare you, to introduce you to what “might” be the next shoe to drop. If this gets hyped up (regardless whether its warranted or not), this might lead to what we went through the past year, or worse.
So beat the crowd. Be prepared.
I will suggest the following… If this comes to fruition and lockdowns begin yet again, this “economy” is going to crash to the ground. There’s no way it can take another hit like we just went through. That in and of itself could be your biggest problem. Economic Collapse.
