Some people give conservatives and libertarians a bad name. I don't want to be associated with the likes of "Survival Seed Bank" ... people trying to fan paranoia in order to make a buck (specifically $149 bucks!). These are probably the same people who made a big deal out of the year 2000 - also to make a buck.
I have no problem with people wanting to be prepared for a disaster or emergency. That is smart. But stocking "non-hybrid" seeds in order to plant an acre "Crisis garden" is insane. No way are these seeds going to be worth more than gold or silver anytime in the near or far future (and yes, that is what the commercial tries to say!). Genetically modified seeds aren't harmful or scary...they've actually saved millions of lives with their disease resistance and ability to survive in less than ideal conditions.
It bugs the hell out of me that this commercial is even on the radio station. It's nothing more than fear mongering and playing on the bad economy and unstable politics.
Sadly, my own hubby gets sucked into this paranoia sometimes...and I have to pull him back to reality. Listening to Beck can make anyone think the world is ending. I prefer Medved who has a much more positive outlook.
This country has gone through a LOT. We've survived a horrible bloody civil war. We've gone through two World Wars. We will survive Obama. We might be a little beaten up but we will survive. I do not think that elections will be suspended (remember how stupid people sounded when they claimed that Bush was going to be a dictator? It sounds just as stupid to claim Obama will do the same) or martial law is coming.
Don't get me wrong...I'm vehemently opposed to The One and all his socialist, power grabbing policies and actions. I just don't think I need to get into a bunker...not yet.
