Doomsday Prepper Survey

A reader sent me a link to a "doomsday prepper survey" put out by National Geographic, doubtless in conjunction to the televised series they broadcast on the subject.

The results were interesting. Scroll through this link.


  1. I think I was most surprised that only 12% of Americans are prepared past 100 days. This is just over three months-we should look to a natural disaster and see how it cripples an area, and at least be ready to dig down and care for ourselves so that the help by the government can go to the elderly, the infirm, and also to repairing the infrastructure. If they are taking care of me, it will take longer to rebuild after a major disaster.


  2. I clicked on the link and it took me to the National Geographic website, but all I got was a blank page. So I tried copying and pasting the address to my browser. That also took me to the Nat'l Geo website, but this time I got this message:

    "The page you requested cannot be found.
    It may have moved or may no longer be available."

    Hmm... maybe they don't want any of us sensible conservatives reading their liberal lies? --Fred in AZ

  3. SwampMan and I have watched a few Doomsday Preppers episodes. Seemed to us that NatGeo was slyly poking fun at the folks that prepare. We watched and said things like "Ooooh, I never thought of that! WHAT a good idea!"

    I note that the folks that took the "survey" preferred a Democrat president because that would make them safer. Enough said.

  4. i found this survey to be interesting..i did catch the program on natgeo and i found that to be interesting too..but like most "reality" type tv programs, it was just a bit "overdone" in some respects, and "underdone" in other respects. sadlly, main stream media could do alot to help those who are still sitting on the fence and twiddling their thumbs not knowing what is going on around them, but they are not and we cannot force a person to become knowledgeable of their surroundings any more than we c an force an animal to drink water.
