Looks like people are hedging their bets on Obama's re-election. Although one story I read (on Yahoo! ICK!) said it was three fold...Obama, the resurgence of survivalists, or "preppers" as they are calling them now, and those worried about...wait for it....a Zombie Apocalypse! No kidding!......
Check out a show on National Geographic each Tuesday night at 8:00PM, repeated Wed, at 7:00PM, "Doomsday Preppers."
Each program interviews three preppers and examines what they're doing, what they believe will happen, evaluates how well they're "prepping" and evaluates how likely the chances of what they're prepping for actually occuring are.
Some are pretty wild albeit not impossible, like a enormous solar flare taking down our electrical power.
One thing some are prepping for is a serious economic collapse. The Nat Geo people think this is unlikely, but I am afraid I disagree; given we're @16 trillion dollars in debt and climbing, in my opinion this is much more likely to happen than a series of dirty bombs.
As for a "zombie apocolypse" we're actually already in the midst of one; they're all in Washington D.C. where they're busy sucking out the lifeforce of the average American worker!!!!!:cryinlaugh::cryinlaugh:
