I couldn't help but shake my head after watching a commercial by Wise Food Storage warning me: "if you are not a prepper now, you will be..."
And they go on to extol the virtues of their emergency food supply products that have a shelf life of 25 years, and taste just like they were prepared by a gourmet chef, all in the comfort of your fortified bomb shelter.
What idiots they think we all are. They continue their lecture to us 'future preppers:' "just because the world went to hell in an hand basket, that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy tasty meals."
If you spend even one dime on their products, you are dumber than a bag of hammers. Just take a second and think about what they are selling: comfort in the face of national chaos and destruction. What on earth else can they sell you? Bullet proof Faberge eggs? Lava-proof hammocks? Maybe designer gas masks, God knows you wouldn't want anyone to see you in one of those military issue gas masks, they are absolutely hideous, and mess up your hair when you wear them. Oooh, ick.
I have to hand it to Wise Food Storage, however. They have learned at the feet of P.T. Barnum well: there's a sucker born every minute (yes, I know he didn't actually say that, but the myth bolsters my point, please bear with me). There are always dummies out there who will buy anything that makes them feel more secure.
The nasty truth of how things will work out once the poop hits the fan is a far different future than these dopes who buy 25 years worth of food to put in their bomb shelter think.
When civilization breaks down, and the mobs take to the streets, these dopes can't rely on their "KEEP OUT" signs hung on their doors. Those doors will be kicked in by the mobs looking for food, weapons, ammunition, and anything else that you have. And the likelihood that these dopey preppers will be the ones eating their delicious Wise Food Storage products is almost zero. Whatever these idiots buy from Wise Food will almost certainly be consumed by someone they don't know. I can virtually guarantee it.
Preppers who think that they can buy some guns and fortify their property are not thinking things through. Yes, when the mobs come across the prepper, sure, this valiant survival expert might pick off a few of the mob. That will only alert the remaining 10,000 scumbags in the mob that there is something inside that fortification worth defending. This survival expert has to sleep at some point, and when that happens the mobs will pour in and that would be the end of the survival expert. So much for his survival skills.
Or even say that the brave survival expert stays awake forever and guns down every mob member he sees. Eventually he will run out of ammo. The mobs will not run out of scumbags. He will get overrun, and his yummy Wise Food Storage portions of Steak Diane, Beef Tips in wine sauce and Beef Wellington will be feeding the mob that just took everything he had, including his life.
But at least he had the security of knowing that he had 25 years worth of tasty food at hand. Too bad he probably never even ate a week's worth of it.
