Fear and consumption hits reality TV

What do you get when you cross two TV shows called Extreme Couponing and Hoarders, and you throw in an arsenal of weapons and survival gear?  You get the most disturbing reality show called Doomsday Preppers.

Although I find the concept as interesting as the Denver bunkers for the elite, the show spotlights some midwestern families that apparently have all the space and the means to store tons of food and gear up for the upcoming Armageddon.   But I think they may be overlooking a few variables in survival that I will keep to myself, since I am no survival expert, but essentially, I hope this show tanks.  We really don’t need to be around this primitive ideology to help improve our lives from certain doom.  But for starters, a major key to survival is covertness, and these folks just pulled down their pants for all their neighbors to see.  So I wish them all the luck in the world.

So when the shit hits the fan, don’t run to Walmart, but, please – don’t drink the punch either.
