The end of the world as we know it?
There is a really disturbing article out today from St. Louis and a CBS affilate station--KMOX--about people seemingly preparing for Armaggedon: Survival Shop Reports Jump In Sales To People Preparing For “Possible Collapse” WEBSTER GROVES, MO (KMOX) - A chain of three stores that sells survival food and gear reports a jump in sales to people who are getting prepared for the “possible collapse” of society.
“We had to order fifty cases of the meals ready to eat to keep up with the demand in the past three months,” said manager Steve Dorsey at Uncle Sam’s Safari Outfitters Inc. in Webster Groves. “That’s not normal. Usually we sell 20 to 30 cases in a whole year.”
Dorsey says business has been brisk since the spring uprisings in the middle east, as customers share concerns about political uprisings, the world economy and the future of the United States. I mean, yikes. First, gun and ammunition sales SOARED after the first black president of the US was elected and installed in office, now this. Is this really what we've become? Can we not work together to solve our problems or do we have to, instead, resort to assuming it's all going to come crashing down? (Shaking head in disbelief).
