Don't look back. Use to be a time that service industry was not the survivor industry.
Doomsday prepping is about the material world we now live in, not the spirit world that will over power us. Now is that fair?
Doomsday Preppers, yes there is a demographic of them, spend thousands of dollars on their preparations by collecting material things. Then hoard the things in an expensive bunker-like dwelling, also costing thousands of dollars. Those are all taxable purchases, by the way, using after tax dollars from their paychecks. I don't see any evidence of writing off a Doomsday Prep Bunker.
" ... Robert Bast, 46, is a prepper who works in Internet marketing during the day and runs an online community called Survive2012.com when he's off the clock. Bast, who lives in Melbourne, Australia, with his wife and three children, has spent more than $350,000 preparing for "the end of the world as we know it." ... (Blake Ellis at CNNMoney March 13, 2012: LINK)"According to NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- "The cost of preparing for doomsday isn't cheap. First you have to stock up on the appropriate gear, ammunition, food and shelter to survive a nuclear meltdown, asteroid, earthquake, solar flare or some other catastrophe. Then there's acquiring the materials you'll need to rebuild a community after the dust settles."
So, let me get this straight. The Doomsday Prepper is asking for mortgage loans on bunkers they will build to survive the end of the world as we know it? Don't you pay back mortgage loans by increment payments for the next 15 to 20 years?
Stocking up on firearms and training in their use, well that was proven yesterday to have unbelievable results. [LINK The Associated Press. Published: Friday, December 14, 2012 at 13:20 PM.] " ... The death toll - 26 victims plus the gunman - was given to The Associated Press by an official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still under way. ... "
" ... The suspect was 24-year-old Ryan Lanza, whose mother, Nancy, works at the school, a law enforcement official said. His younger brother was being held for questioning as a possible second shooter, the official said. ... "This gunman is dead so we will never know the extent of his insanity. The two incidents of "Doomsday Prepping" and "mass murder of innocents" have nothing in common. Or do they?
