  • Just when it looks like Preppers are getting some good press

    In comes wife swap!

    I don't watch much TV, and what I do watch is usually limited to Discovery, Military, and History channels as well as anything broadcasting any form of MMA. This last Friday we were flipping through the channels and as we were passing ABC, I noticed an entire family dressed in woodland camo. This of course gets my attention. The show is "Wife Swap" of all things, which is where they take the wives from two families with totally different lifestyles and place them in the others home for two weeks. This particular episode included a prepper family. I'm thinking to myself... This could be really good.... or really really bad. Five minutes in and it was really really really bad. It seems that this family was prepping for primarily The 2012 Mayan calendar event and nothing more. Now I'm not saying that 2012 is going to be an easy year... I think that it's going to be a political mess at best, and if there is anything to the Mayan thing it could get very interesting... But to prep for ONLY that one event made the narrow focussed preppers look a little looney IMHO. The thing that bothered me the most is that this family had good intentions but of course ABC presented them as the "Reynolds Wrap Hat Club" members of the year. The father even mentioned that they had accumulated massive amounts of debt with "no payments" until 2012, with the intentions of never paying since no one will be around to collect it anyway. There is so much more that I could go into, but I just don't have the time.
    Here's a link if anyone is interested.

    Anyone else see it?

    You mean to say the preppers were not potrayed as goose-stepping Neo-Nazies? Oh wait, that's Next weeks episode!:)
