If you are like me you’ll quickly scan past this first paragraph and go right to the list, and if you see something you don’t like you’ll start jamming text into the comment section with much gusto. Here’s the thing, in no way am I insinuating that any of the items below are NOT possible, in fact I take many of them into consideration while prepping. Yet based on my observations I just can’t see any of them occurring this year as the stars are not quite aligned (yet). Think of it like a volcano, there have been tremors for quite some time suggesting that any number of the following could occur, and the tremors are getting stronger and more frequent. But…we aren’t quite there yet in my humble opinion. The proof will be in the pudding as I am pretty certain I’ll be sitting in this same spot 1 year from now reflecting on how completely accurate my list was. On the other hand if I do miss a few I can take solace in the fact that the internet is full of bad/wrong predictions (just google 2013 SHTF predictions and you’ll be shocked at what failed to materialize), heck I even wrote about that in a recent post. Still predictions are fun, sort of like rolling the dice so here we go:
- A Major Economic Collapse (Meltdown) Will NOT Happen
- FEMA Camps Will NOT be implemented
- The US Dollar Will NOT be dropped as the world’s Reserve Currency
- Silver will NOT skyrocket to $1,000/ounce
- Quantitative Easing (Money Printing) Will NOT Cease
- Nationwide Gun Confiscation Will NOT Be Initiated
- Nationwide Bans On “High Cap” Magazines Or Online Ammo Purchases Will NOT Happen
- A Civil War Within The USA Will NOT Occur
- The EBT System Will NOT Totally Collapse, Inciting Food Riots
- World War 3 (Nuclear) Will NOT Happen
- **Bonus Prediction** The vast majority of overweight and out of shape individuals who join a gym at this point in the year Will NOT stick with their workout/diet regimen for more than 3 weeks.
You’ll notice that I did not mention anything related to a Solar Flare, EMP strike or much more likely (in my opinion) Cyber Attack, all of which would initiate some sort of grid down scenario. Things could get complicated in that a Cyber attack could spark an economic collapse which obviously would lead to riots as the EBT system would be down, triggering a rise in silver prices etc etc. If all that happens the internet will be gone anyways and this post will be long forgotten.
Happy 2014 and good luck in your preps, I’ve got my flame suit on so feel free to light me up in the comment section!
