In recognition of September being National Preparedness Month,
the Connecticut Survivalist Alliance (CSA),
would ask all individuals to accept personal responsibility for their
safety and the safety of their loved ones.
As has been shown with the fairly recent disasters of 9/11 and Hurricane
Katrina, you cannot count on the Federal government to provide for your safety and
You should stay actively informed of situations around the country that have the
potential to deteriorate into crisis situations.
There is tons of misinformation and disinformation out there.
Some dangerous, some harmless and worthless.
But many individuals believe the misinformation and disinformation and their
families will suffer when disaster strikes,
The misinformation or disinformation may get them into a situation they
could have avoided or worse.
How many of these people have you heard say, "I'll just grab a bug-out bag
and head for the woods".
This is the extent of their survival planning,
they think that having a gun and a few supplies makes them an invincible Rambo
The other type of individuals we can't stand are the,
"I'm just gonna go to your house if the shit hits the fan" types.
Not for nothing, but if you are dating or married to this kind of individual,
you should seriously re-evaluate your relationship to an individual who is so
callous about his loved ones safety, that he/she doesn't feel compelled to protect you.
So yes, kudos to "National Preparedness Month 2009",
but be aware that "Federal Big Brother" cannot be counted on when the chips are
YOU have to accept personal responsibility for your safety and the
safety of your loved ones.
