Wait, I Thought the Government Would Take Care of Me!
In absolutely no surprise to us at FSR, we are hearing reports out of New York of chronic food shortages, no gasoline, and a prediction that the power won’t be turned on for another 10 days. Of course, these things are expected when a once-in-100-year storm hits a major metropolitan area.
What is a bit shocking is people’s utter lack of preparation for these types of events. The prevailing belief is that government will always be there to protect us so we don’t have to go through the inconvenience of protecting ourselves. Naivete at its best.

Yorkers literally dumpster diving to find something to eat. Yeah that’s right, dumpster diving in New York City. The reporter goes on to say kids were on top of the garbage trying to find anything–food or water–because they had nothing back home.
Imagine what a simple two-week supply of food storage and a water filter would mean to these people right now. It’s not hard, and it’s not expensive. Just click on your food storage profile above and get started today. You never know when you might be forced to dumpster dive.
