Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
See how much "prepping" plays into feeding/saving the ego with some folks?

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Because so-called "preppers" despise everyone else and look forward to the day they can get away with a shootout over a can of beans. The attitude of the preppers is what gets them disliked: they are psychos in the making, many who look forward to the time they can get away with being a serial killer. They look down upon others as scum to kill when the time is right, instead of looking at the world with compassion. They care for no one. And they tend to keep repeating the mantra, "It's happening soon," all with a wry smile on their face, showing how much they look forward to the destruction of the world, and if people say "no it isn't," they act so stuck up about being "awake" that no one can get through to them.

They are as low as they come.

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Theres the flaw in your logic...you think you know everything. Lemme clue you in:

Look at the Blackhawk Down scenario. Just a few trained, INJURED, serviceman took down 50 trained killers, each with an ak.

There are countless stories in history as well which describe the carnage one pissed off serviceman can do. Lookit every purple heart winners story or Medal of Honor recipients story...all involve winning against tremendous odds. Now, take those same people out of a foreign war zone and plop them into the crumbling of society scenario vs Jon and Jane Citizen and see hiw the kill numbers multiply.

You assume people will somehow come together and share things and sing Kumbaya or some shit. No...almost all people will be for themselves when the store shelves are empty. Hell...most are for themselves now, why would putting them in danger somehow make them change that thought.

Yes, I can defend 360 degrees easily in the middle of a field which is 3600x2000 yards with zero trees in the way. A .223 in the hands of a non trained civvy might be 300 yards, but more like 200 i feel. A shotgun is good to about 100 yards. A .308 is good to about 4-500 yds with an avid hunter shooting it.

I have markers for every hundred yards of distance marked on all sides. I have been trained for over a decade by the US Government on how to properly use a .50 cal in combat situations. Meaning that a group of say 200 people might make it within 500 yards of my spot, but noone would last beyond that.
I realize thats my own personal story and doesnt fit with everyone, but dont stand there and tell me something is impossible because unless you've been in a firefight at 2am in the middle of a desert with only 15 of your buddies against a hundred pissed off terrorists...and win without any losses, you have no leg to stand on.

Lmao...any civvy lynching squad is gonna get exactly what they're looking for should they ever come looking. Dont be so complacent....theres alot of my "types"out there and i really have a hard time believing anyone will play police in a time where a can of beans will get you shot. Who would apply for such a job lol.
 Quoting: Iamtheone


Just remember, Rambo, there are plenty of trained soldiers that won't share your "kill a 3 year old and their family for an apple" mentality.

The lynching squad coming for you will have some of them in it... are you honestly saying you think you are the best of the best and there is literally no other person (or group of people in this case) in the world that could take you? I'm not trying to say you're weak or that you wouldn't be able to take down most sieges on your property, but you're delusional if you actually think you're as invincible as you sound like you think you are.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1055574


A trained soldier with a properly sighted .50 cal can and will take out any number of targets if given enough time. Lets use your logic:

So theres other military types that dont share my views, that cool, but theres a severe difference between a grunt and someone trained in long kill shots. No serviceman anywhere...shit, no group of 50 serviceman complete with M-16's and full garb would even volunteer to hunt down a fellow serviceman who has been trained by the US in the use of a .50 cal.

Why? Because as Ive stated numerous times, it isnt worth their trouble. I will kill half of them before they even got into range with their pea shooters. Do you think that a group of people faced with starving and deplorable conditions would hunt down a trained killer of complete strangers as some show of greater good!?

Ya gotta quit it with the rose colored glasses man. Lemme ask you...say someone was doing exactly what I propose to neighbors of yours. The LEO's come to you and ask you if you'll volunteer to track this trained killer down. Would your response be to grab a gun and help? Not a chance in hell because self preservation will take over.

Im not Rambo in the generic sense, but when it comes to WAR, 99.99999999999% of you would piss in your pants spending just a week in Afghanistan. Partially due to movies and video games making death and war look like fun, partially due to the fact most American think they are tough when in fact, they most certainly are not.

You know nothing of war. You've never came across an open grave of civvies while driving point on a routine patrol. You've never been in a line of humvees which came under attack from all sides at once and had to make cognitive decisions regarding life and death have you?

I could go on and on, but my point here is that very very few of you will be able to even think clearly when bullets are flying let alone be able to send some stupid lynching party against a person who has faced war and seen death.

Doesnt mean I think none of you will survive, but when pitted against someone like me...you wouldn't survive a second because theres no hesitation when training takes over. Especially when someone like me has the most powerful rifle on the planet, the ability to use it as intended, and a dgaf attitude.

Cant wait for ma and pa civvy to form the lynching party...I'll enjoy the skeet shoot, then when they're all dead in the field, I'll relieve them of their guns too lol.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1055574


Lol...those who cannot attack the thought instead attack the thinker.

I didnt know we were even debating. Its you that sounds silly. Walk a mile for a second:

On one hand, you have a person trained to kill with a powerful weapon. Someone who has been in an actual firefight where actual people are actually trying to KILL them. Someone who has been traind on how to defend their position using all kinds of IED's and chemical based explosives.
On the other hand, you have an accountant. Trained in the use of tax law and calculators and zero training on using any weapon. Hes out of shape and hasnt prepped so much as a can of beans.

Tell me sir...which person do you think will survive? What do you think that accountant will do once his bladder releases at the sight of the holes Im making in his house with a .50 cal? Will he form a lynching party against the crazy fuck with his .50 cal or will he beg for his life and give me whatever I want? How about when i catch his rug rat outside and put that same barrel against their head? Will he be thinking about lynching me or will he shit his pants and give me what I want?

Jesus H man...now figure this out:

Give or take...we have about one million active service members right now out of a total of roughly 400 million civvies. In fact...most communities across the nation dont have a single person in the armed forces. That leaves a million trained people to cover the 70 million sq miles in the US. Thats one million sq miles EACH would have to cover. When put into simple numbers, your logic of lynching squads is poppycock at best.

Most trained soldiers are overseas anyway. If tshtf right this moment, there'd be very few of these servicemen to run around lynching. And ma/pa civvy just wouldn't have the testicular fortitude to put up any offense at the onset of a Earth shattering disaster.
We can disagree, but don't be so condescending because deep down, you yourself know you wouldn't be one of those civvies tryina kill a soldier with a gun that has 10x the range...thats just silly talk.

It might be good not to over-generalize.
I've been prepping for over a year but I own no
weapons aside from a BB gun and I'd never
aim it at a person.
Most preppers just want to survive to see
another day, at least that's how it is around here.
We prep for winter storms or the occasional power
outage.
 Quoting: Stand!


I'd say you're almost right. Most preppers are like those who keep antifreeze in their car. It's about not having your world turn upside down just because of some storm, natural disaster, political change, or other unexpected event.

If I get a power failure for a day, or two months, it won't really affect me too much. I'll be able to help those that it does effect. Just remember the boy scout motto: "Be Prepared".

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
And btw....yes....when compared to civilians...I am the baddest ass of the baddest because civvies are good at just a few things:

Armchair quarterbacking
Liquor
X Factor
Buying needless shit

Thats it. Civvies do nothing else that involves death or destruction. They know nothing about what it feels like to hear a bullet actually whiz by there head and then lay in bed later on knowing how close they came to dying.

Civvies delude themselves into thinking they are badass because they got into a bar brawl and beat someone up. Those same tool sheds will be the first ones culled from the herd when tshtf because...well, they'll be bringing fists to a gun fight.

Its not your guys' fault, its this aura of complacentness that has come over ya'll. You've never wanted for anything...ever. It's all provided by the government if you need it. Take that away and a day later...its a shooting gallery of retards.

Thats just all fact...can't be refuted using any logic.

Not saying it isnt possible to be lynched in that scenario but immediately after Jon Civvy of the lynching party sees the head of the dude next to him explode with brain matter flying on him, he will piss himself and run the other way. Any thought to the contrary is just asinine.

Lastly, your logic holds no water in history whatsoever.

Pol Pot murdered millions and no lynching by civvies. Hitler was black baggin citizens and made hoarding illegal...no lynching. Obama has been violating the Constitution for 4 years now. Hes killing American civvies with drones right now....and yet....I see no lynching.

These types of stories are a dime a dozen and could literally write a book on them, and yet....no lynching parties did anything.

Thats different though huh?

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Because so-called "preppers" despise everyone else and look forward to the day they can get away with a shootout over a can of beans. The attitude of the preppers is what gets them disliked: they are psychos in the making, many who look forward to the time they can get away with being a serial killer. They look down upon others as scum to kill when the time is right, instead of looking at the world with compassion. They care for no one. And they tend to keep repeating the mantra, "It's happening soon," all with a wry smile on their face, showing how much they look forward to the destruction of the world, and if people say "no it isn't," they act so stuck up about being "awake" that no one can get through to them.

They are as low as they come.

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
I'll decide if I want to share anything with my neighbors after the Shtf and after I get to know them. Lets just say I don't have a clue to who my neighbors are and won't have until they decide to be more sociable. These days people really try to maintain their privacy. Most of the people I know are through business relationships. Oddly enough I know more about them than my actual neighbors.

Duh

That leaves a million trained people to cover the 70 million sq miles in the US. Thats one million sq miles EACH would have to cover.

Wow! You caught a typo and that brings the rest of the argument down in flames huh? Either way, do the math yourself and you see its just impossible to have gangs of military lynchers.

The difference between "One Million square miles" and "70 square miles" is not a typo. It's an indication that someone isn't all that good at math and didn't even bother to think rationally about the numbers he was posting. Which leads me to wonder what other things this person just throws out without even thinking. Additionally, 70 square miles isn't really that much land to cover...

Look, I already said you were the most awesomest, most invincible, super-duperist tough guy on the internet... what more do you want? I accept that you're going to kill children and their families for an apple. I accept that you'll single handedly mow down whole armies from your back deck. You'll have each of their heads on a pike warning others of how super awesome you are. Maybe have a child's head every 3 or 4 pikes just to drive the point home. I accept that you will be the sole survivor of any type of disaster that could ever happen... is that enough to stoke your ego and get you to shut the fuck up about how super tough you are? Or do you need more?

Most preppers I know, including myself, stock extra for the people who didn't prepare. You can't save everyone which is the reason for the guns, but people could have listened while they had the chance, too.

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Preppers are only people who see the end as our country will be in a great depression soon. They are so sure that the end is near; and when it is; they will be the only true survivors. And there is nothing to hate about this. They are very secure in knowing that their families will survive the coming international upheaval; and they don't want to hurt anybody unless they have to for the protection of their families. Preppers love the thought that you could have found a way to survive too; and they do take glee in knowing that they are the ultimate survivors; while everybody else will be starving or dead, and they survive because of their intelligence and ingenuity.

Well I am not a prepper; but God does prepare His people for what is going to definately happen; as the new world order antichrist will try to force the whole world to take his mark of the beast chip in your forehead or right hand. And if you take their chip; you will be forever rejected by God and thrown into hell. Why!? Because that chip will mean that you have rejected God and Jesus Christ and have chosen Satan and his antichrist as your lord and god!!

since the preppers are smart enough to prep, then i am POSITIVE that they will be armed to the teeth, wouldn't you agree?

but then i bet you haven't done anything to prepare for the future, have you?

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
So far, no response has shown me wrong. So far, you just have Pavlovian responses from people who have been turned into "prepper" sheep. Who are the "prepper" sheep? Those who are convinced of a quick, impending doom which they must prep for -- prepping with all kinds of goods and services they must buy, and they must buy it all for themselves. It is an ever-man-for-himself atheistic social Darwinian survivalist mentality combined with consumerism, where people are convinced they must do it all alone (because this sells the most crap). But to get them to be like this, they must be turned into radical Ayn Rand types, who are selfish, care not for anyone else, and this ends up with the "come close to me, and I will shoot you" mentality. The mentality of a killer. It is, also, the mentality which, if real doom happened, would lead to the preppers being the first killed off -- in the end, it will only be a group of people working together who can survive. The whole prepper mentality is a self-destruct waiting to happen.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29620363



So you think they should be buying it for YOU?

It will be a group of people who are PREPARED who will survive.

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Anyone here read anything besides GLP? Anybody actually read Ayn Rand? How about the book "One second after" or for non readers how about the movie "the postman"? The kev costner flick. People do band together, aka tribes. History will repeat itself.

Somebody is always considering themself an elitist. Either for their own good or someone else. Kinda reminds me of religous wars, yes?

I enjoyed One Second After. Was a good read. Haven't seen or read The Postman but after reading the synopsis of it on wiki, it's not at all what I originally thought it was. Will have to look into it.

Re: I can tell you why so many people despise "preppers"
Because so-called "preppers" despise everyone else and look forward to the day they can get away with a shootout over a can of beans. The attitude of the preppers is what gets them disliked: they are psychos in the making, many who look forward to the time they can get away with being a serial killer. They look down upon others as scum to kill when the time is right, instead of looking at the world with compassion. They care for no one. And they tend to keep repeating the mantra, "It's happening soon," all with a wry smile on their face, showing how much they look forward to the destruction of the world, and if people say "no it isn't," they act so stuck up about being "awake" that no one can get through to them.

They are as low as they come.

Since ur a movie buff Im sure you also seen The Road and Book of Eli as well right? Seems the lone wolves of thise flicks did much better for themselves than "tribes".

What good is a tribe of hunter/gatherers against someone with bullets and the means to deliver them?

History has in fact shown us what lone wolves are capable of. Unabomber, every serial killer, thrill killer, mass murderer has shown us that one man with a purpose can kill multitudes of civvies easily. I direct you to the recent Batman shooting, the guy in Finland or whatever that mowed 70 people down, 18 terrorists managed to kill 3k plus civvies on 9/11, shit...history is filled with lone wolves. And yet....I seen no lynching parties of civvies, I see the civvies letting the people with the guns catch them.

God...your argument is almost too stupid to be replied to.


To the blow hard withcan attitude about my math regarding the sq miles in the US. Okay dumbass, you wanna split hairs, I'll bite.

So this army dude and his lynching squad of say 50 civvies is hunting me in an area that is 70 SQUARE MILES. Do you have any clue as to what one square mile even looks like? Do you really think that its even possible to find someone in that area by just using some binoculars and walking around!? How exactly does one find someone who doesnt want to be found in an area that large??

Im 6ft tall and 180 pounds. I take up about 2 square feet in space....in a space consisting of SEVENTY SQUARE MILES. Yeah...cant wait to be a part of that stupid ass scenario.

What an absolute crock lol. It could be one square mile and 50 people and anyone who went through basic training and one tour overseas would own all your asses. Dont care if you agree or not, but if civvies were good at warfare, its you thatd be over there and not those whom have been trained.

I'll leave you with this:

We had 40,000 soldiers ALL searching for Saddam. It was our sole purpose above ALL else. We all wanted to be in the group that found him. So thats 40,000 trained soldiers searching for one man in an area the size of New York City. It took 3 months to find him even with the most sophisticated equipment.

Dont tell me what i should know when it comes to war and death. Ive experienced plenty of both and I gaurantee you...you WILL freeze the first time you are shot at...then you will die. Any other scenario is just Hollywood.
