    It seems shes under the assumption that the people on the show are anti-community assistance in the event of an emergency. Pretty much she has no idea what is going on.

    PS

    How on earth do you pay 50% of your income in tax? I think you are filing wrong brother!
    Oh no he's not! Sit down with pencil in hand and a calculator. Add up ALL your taxes... Income (local, state, federal), property tax, boat-car-rv- etc.taxes, fishing/hunting tax, food and sales tax, fuel tax(s), phone, utility, garbage pick up taxes, repair taxes, on and on and on...

    I figured it our on paper a few years ago, 52% in all taxes.

    LOL, I think he's a bit high, but by the time you figure all taxes taken out of your paycheck, property taxes, sales taxes, taxes on each gallon of gasoline, taxes on your phone bill, taxes on... You get the idea... it does add up to a very hefty chunk of your income.
    I'd say 50% is low ball figure. Income tax, sales tax on every single thing you buy, property tax, vehicle tax, tag and title tax. I'd say it comes up to over 50% by the time you add it all up.

    As for her remarks. I don't see how she can expect "preppers" or anyone else to take care of the unprepared during a collapse of society, when the "preppers" and all other "working, tax paying" individuals have been covering for the "non working lazy people" long enough. If those who work and pay taxes are some of those that are not prepared, then it's their own fault. During a collapse of our society, I'm sorry to say, but it's time to look out for number one. There is nothing selfish about it. "She" will probably not be prepared, and she's just mad because she knows that these people won't be taking care of her.

    One day it may come to pass that those who are paying for those with their hands held out may just quit paying. Now wouldn't that be something to see, folks actually having to work for what they want?

    Socially selfish? That's the biggest bunch of BS I've heard about prepping. If you're too damn lazy to plan ahead and prepare for a SHTF scenario, then don't expect me to use my resources to care for your lazy butt. Where I live we prepare every autumn for severe winter weather/blizzards. If my neighbors don't, that's their problem, not mine. Who else but a misinformed, uninformed, socialist/communist could dream up such liberal vomit? Especially like the part about sharing my ammo.

    Unfortunately, she is a perfect example of a large percentage of our population.

    And when "IT" does hit the fan, she will be out there demanding that the "gubmint" round up all those preppers so she can pass the stuff around.

    Some of you guys are ammunition selfish, I know it. And you should share. I can PM my address if you would like to do your part. Thanks in advance.

    When the SHTF , the people with their hands out now will be the most dangerous at first, everything the preppers have been stockpiling will be at risk, because the ones getting freebes now will want what we have, and they will think they are entitled, with our governments blessing... my 2 cents

    It will be the local, state and federal people coming around, to evacuate you for your own safety - even though the safest thing is to stay put, that will be taking your stuff for the betterment of the community. They will force the local Sheriff and PDs to act as the first arm of this. Such is the slow but purposful integration of DHS down to the lowest level.

    If you are Local Sheriff or PD, how would you like for me to come to your home and represent the same at the expense of you and your family?

    I bet you will give them to them at rates of over 900 feet per second... you must be one of the extremely non-selfish to be willing to give so rapidly!

    Have you all heard of the parable of the ant and grasshopper? Sounds eerily remniniscent of her thinking, and I don't like the outcome of that story.
