Totally Interesting Thought!

“The day before something happens, Preppers are idiots. The day after something happens, we’re geniuses!” -unknown By the time something has happened, it’s probably too late for non-Preppers. So, does this make them the “idiots?” No, but they could be considered foolish. When that time comes, my heart will go out to them, but it’s hard […]
