The Zombie Apocalypse Approaches

Well, I don't know if there will be Zombies, but apparently the End of the World is Nigh. Mark Steyn is one of my favorite writers. He's witty and makes even dry and depressing read funny.

As mainstream media, and every other media outlet, seems bent to proclaim the end of the world, Steyn has a positive take...

"But, if you’re not in the general vicinity of the world, you should be okay. "

Heh.It's a serious topic. Greece is financial dead and yet Western countries somehow feel the need to prop them up. I say let them go. If the moochers want to riot, lock them up. It's been a long time coming, but there is no more free lunch or free ride. There are consequences to living off the dole...because eventually you run out of other people's money.

Money is not finite but neither does it grow on trees. Yet, we worry about trivial matters.

"On Thursday night, there was a question on gays in the military but none on the accelerating European debt crisis. It is certainly important to establish whether a would-be president is sufficiently non-homophobic to authorize a crack team of lesbian paratroopers to rappel into the Chinese treasury, break the safe, and burn all our IOUs. But the curious complacency about the bigger questions is disturbing."

Heh. Again.

So what can we do? Nothing. It's beyond my skills to solve such  massive problems. All I can do is try to prepare my family to live within our means, stock up on necessities, and keep our bullet supply up. After all, when the stuff hits the fan, those who are prepared will be targeted by those grasshoppers who decided to party instead of prepare.
