Practice, Practice, and Practice Some More
Even before the ammunition price run-up (even now, as ammunition prices drop, .22LR is still expensive) dry firing is an important practicing technique used by the military and other professional organizations.

Weekly Dose of Doom and Gloom


Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,


by
Rick Scavetta, U.S. Army Africa

The Big Idea
The first article, I would like to highlight, is a piece from Charles Hugh Smith, over at Of Two Minds blog.

In this article, Mr. Smith suggests the traditional job/work/employment is going to change, for the worst, for most of us (you and your family)

Link:
Of Two Minds - Our New Robot Overlords and The Third Type of Capital
http://www.oftwominds.com/blogoct14/robot-overlords10-14.html

Note:
Mr. Smith has sounded this alarm before, and I agree with him. As technology changes our world (becomes cheaper and smarter) people will turn to it. Robots will (have) replaced humans.

So, ...

You have to ask yourself, what will my family do?


Cause for Alarm
For some folks, every time these United States' Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) has a practice exercise, it is time for alarm, especially, if they are messing up a current event. These folks think these exercises are precursors for some round up of dissidents.

While possibly true, that is usually not the case.

And, ...

That's a problem.

http://www.blacklistednews.com/FEMA_Conducting_Pandemic_Drills_Amidst_Ebola_Crisis/38659/0/38/38/Y/M.html

Note:
Yes, there is the possibly that FEMA and other government organizations could be used to herd you and your family into internment camps by an oppressive government for a nefarious reason.

But, ...

These practice events are usually planned years in advance to insure that the organizations involved with the exercise have the people and the money to attend the event. According to some professionals, these practice exercises are really wastes of tax dollars because the simulated events are too simple, unrealistic, or considered 'pencil' drills. In other words, useless.

Plus, ...

As we see from current events (Ebola), the emergency preparedness organizations aren't exactly inspiring confidence.


Every Year
I have probably warned of these threats to you and your family.

These events?

They are the recurring events like hurricanes, tornadoes, winter storms, and many others. (I don't think there is an earthquake season ; - ) that you and your family need to be prepared for.
