With the holidays upon us, and family gathering (regardless of what El Fauco says), it presents an excellent opportunity to talk about preparedness with friends and family. Prepping seems like common sense, but to most, preparing is a product of fanatics and conspiracy theorists.
In today’s show, we will be talking about how to talk about preparedness with friends and family without coming off as the stereotype “Doomsday Prepper” the media has taught them we are. We’ll also be going over some essential supplies we should have in our automobiles with winter coming and a few other winter preparedness tips.
Portable Jump Starter
We started talking about a portable jump starter, and air compressor Dale recently reviewed on his Survivalist Prepper YouTube channel. This was less a review about this individual product and more about the importance of having one of these in every vehicle you own.
While some things can happen to your vehicle that leaves you no other option than a mechanic, having a way to jump-start your car and pump up the tires could be the difference between being stranded or not.
Car Supplies for Winter
Continuing with our conversation about the portable jump starter, we talked about other essential supplies you should keep in your vehicle. With winter coming, we must be up to date on vehicle maintenance and have the correct supplies available.
While some of these might seem basic, it’s usually something basic that turns a minor hassle into a big problem. Having supplies like a tire repair kit, a vehicle emergency kit, first aid supplies, and extra clothing are all-important “just in case” gear to have in your car.
Talking to People About Preparedness
Because of the mainstream media narrative about preppers, it can be a tricky subject to talk about with non-preppers. A common preconceived notion is that preppers are overreacting conspiracy theorists. Today’s show talked about how to dispel those myths and approach someone about the importance of preparedness.
These days it should be easier than ever to talk about preparedness because a handful of likely disasters are right outside the front door. The pandemic, inflation, the economy, and the decay of society, in general, should make everyone a little concerned.
Trees are Racist & Career Politician
It never ceases to amaze how far politicians are willing to go to bring race into everything. Kamala Harris was recently having a conversation with NASA and couldn’t help but say that the more trees you own, the more entitled and racist you are.
These politicians have broadened the definition of racism so far that ANYTHING can be considered racist these days. Fortunately, it seems as though people are tired of these politicians’ tactics and wokeness and are finally saying, “enough is enough.” We’ll see how long that lasts.
