    "Our government isn't looking out for 'We the People' anymore," she said.

    Ross says she is looking out for herself.


    Isn't that kinda the way most everyone else lives anyway?

    What’s the point of posting this? Passive-aggressive shot at black folks?

    Heavens no. Most news items about people preparing for possible disasters or hard times focus on folks who are perceived as "red necks" or Mormons. This lady has started a movement to teach blacks and other minorities how to survived in the wild if the need arises. The byproduct for this knowledge is educating mostly city folks about the outdoors. Many of them will take up the sports of fishing and hunting as well as an appreciations of the what's beyond the city limits signs and the need for conservation.

    Good for her. It’s ironic that such an approach is seen by some to be novel.

    Easy, I resemble that remark! :yes

    Good idea in general though. It's definitely true that an incredible amount of people are totally unprepared for even the most minor emergency. While I don't agree with their theology I do admire the Mormon's philosophy on being prepared.

    That said some of the full-on prepper folks are friggin nuts!
