Jewish Preppers?

Some people finding our website may be wondering what is a Prepper and why does it have a religious affiliation? Well the short answer is...A Prepper is the modern day survivalist. It's not (necessarily) a right-wing militiaman preparing for Armageddon in the boondocks of Montana. But better represented by a normal, educated, middle class individual perhaps living in the most urban of cities, preparing themselves physically and mentally for any upcoming disaster, natural or man-made. This could include anything from earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, social unrest to an act of terrorism. Preparations include: food supply, medical supply, weapons supply etc. and the knowledge and skills to use them. Of course, a Jewish Prepper is just a designation for a small niche of the Prepper Community that is of the Jewish Faith. We are non-profit and nonpartisan. Enjoy!

An Apology to kooky Dr. Paul

Some time ago, presidential hopeful Dr Paul said something about be afraid of a wall along the souther border to prevent Mexicans from walking into the US at sometime being used to keep Americans in the USA against their will. At first, I thought what a kook, and worse.

Until I read about this:
Senate Democrats on Thursday unveiled the Ex-Patriot Act (Expatriation Prevention by Abolishing Tax-Related Incentives for Offshore Tenancy,) a bill to punish Americans who renounce their citizenship for tax purposes. The move was a reaction specifically to Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin, who last fall withdrew his citizenship in advance of the company's multibillion-dollar initial public offering, set to take place Friday.

The article continues. Basically, if you decide to renounce your citizenship, the gov'mint can keep your money. Perhaps not a physical wall keeping you in, but metaphysical perhaps.

Call me paranoid, but I have never looked at the Jews fleeing Germany with gold coins sewn into the hems of their clothing to bribe border agents as uncivilized.  Hopefully it will never again be fashionable.

In any event, my apologies to Dr Paul, although he remains a bit of a crank. I think.
