We don’t have any minute men to rise to action and forcibly stop the trouble.

We don’t have any leaders stepping up and putting their John Hancock to a declaration that “the line must be drawn here and no further” as far as abuse of power goes.

Everyone of us is either comfortable with our lives, or planning to bail out when trouble comes, or planning to join if someone else just leads the way. We have no leaders, we are frightened, we are almost not worthy of the inheritance left to us.

Comment on You Won’t Get to Pick the Disaster by John Scherberhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/10/28/wont-get-pick-disaster/#comment-13981 Thu, 30 Oct 2014 22:21:02 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=11753#comment-13981 You’re right, you won’t see it coming. That’s the underlying theme of a novel I’ve been working on for three years and it just came out on Monday. Your readers might enjoy this fictional take on a subject on everyone’s mind today.
Jihad in America travels on the wind.
While a nuclear terrorist attack is unlikely, in a bioterror epidemic, the genetically engineered plague is invisible. Our borders are vulnerable, and metal detectors are useless, even as ISIS, the Islamic State, raises its menacing black flag in Syria and Iraq.
What if the government is helpless, gridlocked in perpetual party conflict and rancor?

BEYOND TERRORISM: SURVIVAL is the fictional story of two unlikely strangers who found a way to survive the apocalypse, the most deadly terrorist attack in history.

Seek water from springs and even collecting morning dew found in grass. Following grazing animals near dusk and dawn are also ways to get to a place where you can get decent water. […]
