The primitives have been light-hearted and gay as of the past several hours, perhaps to take away from their utter discouragement at recent news, including the collapse of the left-wing government in Italy yesterday, among other things.

Anyway.

Disaster: Your Survival is at Stake. You have 15 minutes in a grocery store. 

Something awful has happened in your state and you are lucky enough to have been entering a supermarket when you heard about it on the radio prior to your entrance.

You have ten or fifteen minutes to buy what you need and get out of the store before everyone else gets there.

What do you buy?

It's a very large campfire, at least 700 feet into the atmosphere.

Most of the primitive comments are primitive, but whatever.

100. Lol. My husband has been stockpiling for a disaster 

We have a huge store of TP in the closet under our stairs. He has also stockpiled about thirty gallons of tide.

Several huge bags of rice. He has a crank flashlight/combo radio.

We invested in a down comforter (the obscenely high fill kind, so we can go without heat at night). I like that investment.

We have drawers & drawers of vintage wool & cashmere sweaters, blankets, & a huge stockpile of old church candles.

We also have a big house, so we are guessing if things got really bad, we could be headquarters.

The primitive obsession with bathroom tissue is interesting, but one wonders; in case of a disaster, natural or man-made, one suspects the plumbing is going to be gone, or about to go in a short time, so what's the deal about preparing for a disaster as if one's always going to have operating plumbing?

Obviously the primitives who place much value on bathroom tissue have never been to any of the socialist paradises of the workers and peasants.

There's a debate between a gun-owning primitive, and a delusional primitive.

The primitives later in the campfire get semi-civilized, but really offer no practical suggestions, their view of a "disaster" (natural or man-made) being similar with their distorted and unimaginative and sharply limited view of all else that is in the world.

Actually Frank you point out a fundemental flaw in all of DUmmie thinking..that no matter how the circumstances of a current situation may change the current status of that situation will still be arrived at and be constant.

That is why they think they can socialize health care and we would still have the exact same availability and quality.
Decimate the defense budget and still have security and so on.

Sparky's "disaster" checklist:

--Weapons and ammo (check.)
--Generator and 30 gallons gas (check.)
--30 days dry goods (check.)
--3 full bottles propane for grill (check.)

And up the hill to the house I go.  Nuff said.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

--Addresses of DUmmys that have stockpiled food, TP, and sex dolls.

True story...

Right before the turn of the century we were at a friends house for "Guys Night" (Cigars and Wargaming)

Everyone is talking about the crap they are laying in for Y2K.

Batteries, canned goods, etc, etc.

One of the guys looks at me and asks me what I was buying, and I told him I had an AK, a couple of good handguns and a 12 gauge pump with a thousand rounds for each and lived in a Liberal State that hated guns and that I figured I could pretty much get whatever I needed. ;)

When you live in Los Angeles, you are always prepared for "The Big One."

Lots and lots of batteries and flashlights. 
Emergency lights that come on automatically come on if power goes off.
Canned goods to last at least 2 weeks.
Potable water to last at least 2 weeks.
Portable Radios -- multiple
Portable TVs -- multiple
Shoes where you can get to them
Warm ponchos -- very useful
Coleman Cook Stove

The DUmmies' houses would become mini-Wal-Marts for those inclined, only without those pesky checkout lines.

The same people would steer clear of known conservatives' homes, since they tend to be better armed and less passive. If they didn't know the difference it would quickly become clear to them.
