    What’s up with the commercials? A friend of mine thinks this is the discreet way the government is warning us that’s something’s getting ready to happen. What is your opinion on this? What could this something be? He is thinking something bigger than the typical natural disaster.

    I hear the ads all the time listening on internet radio. A little weird hearing anything from a .gov site telling you to make a plan and a "kit" (aka known as a bug-out-bag) Normally it would be just 'dial 911 if you see anything' and wait for the gubamint to come and save you.

    Maybe somebody from .gov was surfin' the Survival forums.....:whistling:


    In the meantime, I gotta get crackin' on my "tactical wheelbarrow" for when the SHTF and ITEOTWAWTI...

    They started when the Hurricane seasons started getting bad, I remember seeing H W Bush and Clinton doing commercials shortly after Katrina. Maybe it existed before then and I just did not know about it.

    A part of being ready and prepared is owning a firearm.

    the government wants you to be prepared to survice a disaster cause the government is not able to effectively respond to one for about 4 days. I am prepared.

    This.

    And they are probably trying to justify their department's budget since no major SHTF scenarios have hit the US recently. (Advertising = exspenses)
