Four middle aged Fantasy Football managers (just go with it, Andy) and four Romelu Lukaku owners. Four very smug faces. We try to hide it, we really do, but Romelu’s haul was so sweet, the odd gloat may have sneaked into this latest 120-minute episode. You have been warned. Our Gameweek’s were even good enough to nudge Granville into making a welcome return, although he was sure to stress that his 81 points had very little to do with the re-appearance. He joined Jonty, a youthful Andy and myself for the usual grappling session with your community questions. We contemplate the big hitters to sell and the cheap options to buy, while lamenting Sergio Aguero’s demise and giving Claudio Ranieri our own vote of shaky confidence.

In early November I did a video about what to expect after the winner of the Clinton/Trump election was announced. In that video, I talked about how my preparedness plans would change depending on who won the election. While I was right about how the people would react to a Trump election, I completely underestimated the lengths that the main stream media and the establishment would sink to discredit a fairly elected president of the United States of America. Now that the dust has settled a bit, we are starting to get a clearer picture of how things might unfold over the next 4 years. All of this has caused me to reassess my prepping priorities. While my main concern remains an economic collapse, there are other issues that might need a little extra consideration at this point in time. A Nation Divided It seems that more than ever our nation is divided. Not divided by race or social class, but more by political affiliation. I think this is the result of not really having big issues to worry about. Life is good in America, and it’s been 75 years since WW2, so most people alive today have no idea what a real national crisis is. Generally speaking, Americans are spoiled. Our small issues become big issues because we don’t have any big issues to be concerned about. I understand that something like a job loos can be a big issue, but it pales in comparison to WW3. These days, the mainstream media can literally dictate American sentiment. From our education system, to what we watch on TV, everything is geared towards socialism. If you read Alt Right media, you are labeled a “white supremacists”, and because Donald Trump is so polarizing he gets labeled as “Hitleresque” by the MSM, and people who have no idea who Hitler really was. Another problem is social media and all the keyboard warriors out there. Everyone can have a voice in the conversation, and their opinions become their facts. Public sentiment has become more important than facts, and everyone is guilty until proven innocent because of this. SPP188 Have Your Prepping Priority’s Changed? In this weeks show we talked about how our preparedness plans have changed, and some concerns I have in the short term, along with some that might be long term. We went into much more detail about these in the show, but here is a list of what we talked about. 5 Important Disaster Scenarios For those of you that know me, an economic collapse has always been a top priority when it comes to prepping. While that remains a MAJOR concern of mine, there are a few disaster scenarios that have moved up on my threat assessment scale. Civil Unrest With everything going on these days, and everyone just waiting for something to protest, civil unrest has become one of my top prepping priorities. The protests themselves don't concern me, the fact that 90% of these "peaceful protests" turn into riots does. Free speech only applies if you agree with the main stream, and it is becoming increasingly obvious that there are people behind the scenes stirring the pot. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I can see this situation escalating and becoming a bigger danger. Situational Awareness: Anything can happen at any time, and we need to be ready for it to happen. This article from BearingArms talks about avoiding riots, having everyday carry items and the OODA Loop Lisa mentioned in the show. Martial Law: With all the protests riots going on, lead by the extreme left, Martial Law being enacted is a very real possibility. If this continues, it's only a matter of time before the right stands up to have their voice heard. This could lead to major clashes, especially if you live in urban areas. Civil War: I don't think that a Civil War would necessarily look like "The Civil War" looked like, but over time it could become that. Some would argue that we are already in the early stages of a civil war,
