It’s been about a week since Ferguson, MO police officer Darren Wilson wasn’t indicted in the death of Michael Brown.
And over the past week, we’ve learned 3 important things…
1. A significant number of Americans don’t care about the truth and will destroy businesses and harm others if they don’t get what they want. Anyone who read the transcripts could clearly see that Officer Wilson acted appropriately and that anyone in his position would have acted in the same manner. One of the best quotes I read about the situation was,
“Justice was served today by the facts and not by emotion.”
It’s a shame so many Americans don’t care about the truth and what’s right versus wrong. And, that so many celebrities and athletes (who younger children look up to) have made so many remarkably stupid comments that showed they obviously didn’t read any of the facts about the case.
2. This same group of Americans don’t care about taking personal responsibility for their lives or their personal choices and will blame others for their own actions whenever they can.
3. Ferguson is a scary example of what could happen on a much larger scale if things don’t go people’s way. Just imagine a large scale event, such as the dollar collapsing… especially while Obama’s still in office. (Side note: Since Obama became president our national debt has soared by 66% and there’s been a 70% increase in the number of people on food stamps).
Imagine Obama blaming Republicans, CEOs, and anyone else he could for the dollar collapsing and encouraging the millions of Americans who voted for him to do the same.
The bottom line is, Ferguson has shown us how easily Obama and the liberal media could manipulate a group of people and how this group will act totally irrationally and harm others since they don’t care about the truth.
And, this is why it’s critical for those who value integrity, right from wrong, and personal responsibility to take this reminder to heart and to be prepared and keep ourselves alive so that we are able to stand up for what is right.
In order to do that, I’ve listed just a few things you may want to consider for when the next “Ferguson” occurs, which could easily be in your hometown.
– A minimum of 30 days of food and water. Don’t forget water filters too (my favorite is the Sawyer PointONE.) You don’t want to starve to death if your town gets so bad that it’s not safe to leave your house.
– At least one AR-15 rifle (I like Colt and Rock River Arms.) It’s been reported that numerous businesses in Ferguson were protected by men standing in front of them slinging rifles. Don’t forget to take plenty of training too.
– 6 months of emergency savings. You may not be able to go to work, and if the financial system hasn’t imploded, you want to be able to ride out the storm with the money you’ve saved.
– Surround yourself with like-minded individuals. If you live in an area surrounded by liberals, think about what will happen in your location. If you live in an area surrounded by conservative Americans who value self-reliance, there will be more people to work with and a lot less chaos.
– Get a spotlight. I know this probably sounds random but during the night you want to be able to “light up” anyone you see near your home to make sure it’s not a group up to no good. For an inexpensive spotlight, check out the Rayovac Sportsman Spotlight.
– Get a full-size handgun. I know a lot of people own pocket pistols (I own several) but you also need a full-size handgun too, such as a Glock 17, Smith & Wesson M&P, 1911 or Sig Sauer P226. (If things are so bad you’re slinging a rifle on your front porch, you also want a full-size handgun on your hip.)
Of course, there are a million and one other items you could get, but the basics above will put you head and shoulders above others. So, if you don’t already have all of the supplies you need, I hope that Ferguson was a wake up call about how irrationally people can behave and how dangerous these mobs are.
