I have been traveling across the country for the last 4 years quite extensivly. I have encountered just about every type of person.
I have come to a realization of how Arfcom is and the rest of the world is.
Arfcom is a place that can allow you to think the world will end at any moment and people in general are pieces of shit.
I have found people are generally good and will help you out in need. There is no Red Dawn scenario that is about to happen
so you can stop stockpiling a small mall of survival gear in your mother's basement.
Political climate sucks, but people in other countries dont sweat it as bad as people on Arf do.
People do not care about firearms as intensely as folks on here do. I love mine, but Im stepping away from amking it my only source of funa nd entertainment.
Some should do the same.
All in all I think the people of Arf are way to high strung for a normal lifestyle out of their parents basemets.

Thomas Jefferson said something like "Imperialism isn't consistent with the people, but with its rulers".

The people of America are so different from its legislators. Almost everyone wants to be left alone and live a good life and possibly help a few people along the way.

I like this site well enough to look past all the doom and gloomt hat happens. In fact I am hoping to meet up next weekend with some local Arfcommers here in Port Huron MI.

So basically, you're saying you're better then everyone else? Because you are not willing to prepare for a disaster in your area? Because we all live in our Mom's basements, and you don't? Because we all derive satisfaction from guns and nothing else? Because we recognize Obama and the Dems for what they really are?

Okay then, fuck you very much.

So you're from CO or MI?

Arfcom is high strung... but what a lot of people fail to understand (in my limited experience) is that all this preparation for the apocalypse is kinda fun. I like going to the range and practicing with my guns, I like staying in shape, I like learning about new things... If it weren't so agreeable there would be far fewer people devoting so much time to it. Dont lose your edge!!!!!!

People will help you change your tire on a deserted highway.

Arfcommers will help provide supporting fire so YOU can change the tire on a deserted highway full of zombies.

That is the difference between us and them...

I think your attitude might fit in somewhere in this quote.


The average age of the world s greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence:

"From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to complacency; From complacency to apathy; From apathy to dependency; From dependency back into bondage."

–– From "The Decline and Fall of the Athenian Republic", Alexander Fraser Tyler (1748 - 1813)

I agree with your empirical evidence. Other countries don't get as spun up about firearms as we do.


I disagree with your conclusion: I am not going to stop shooting because we're under attack or other people don't find it important. they have been neutered so long they do not understand WHY it's important.

Well, really, this. Not to rain on your parade, OP, but a) I don't live in my mom's basement, and in fact have been self-sufficient & haven't lived with my mom for like 20+ years, and b) I have a HUGE number of interests besides guns (including girls), and c) while I'm sure I'm nowhere near! as prepared as alot on this board, the sheer fact of questioning preparedness (earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes, anyone?) makes you seem like a naïve child. Just how old are you, exactly?

Good call. I did the same thing last year. Bought a motorcycle and having fun. Too much doom and gloom and a safe full of guns I never use.
Link Posted: 6/14/2009 6:12:15 PM EST
Do whatever you wish. But for me? I think I'll keep stocking survival gear, enjoy shooting and firearms and keep in mind how quickly many previously "helpful and nice" folks can turn into demons if the situation is right. You're basing all of your assumptions on a perfect world with no problems. Let a monkey wrench get thrown into the equation and all bets are off.

So by all means, if you don't feel the need, don't prepare. If you want lots of other hobbies, by all means, go for them. But by the same token, don't try to tell me or anyone else here what they should or shouldn't do. I'll live my life however I damn well please, thank you very much.

Without fail, certain people take any attack on the idiots here as an attack on themselves.

I always find that amazing.
Link Posted: 6/14/2009 6:22:39 PM EST
I apologize that I take enjoyment in emergency preparedness, personal fitness, marksmanship/shooting sports, and other things that are just damn crazy.

Maybe you don't see all the normal folk on ARF and just the crazies.

But anyway, I guess if this is goodbye...

This is the most cow hearted thing I have ever read here.

As for the basement comment; If you and three of your neighbors pooled your money you most likely could not afford the home I own.

So because you had an epiphany about yourself you feel you need to apply it to others. Pretty self absorbed aren't you. Being prepared is not paranoid, it's smart. And guns is one of many hobbies that I have, doesn't make it wrong. As far as my parents basement, I've got four kids and a great job and my mother lives 4500 miles away. You sir, are an idiot.

Well, I can't accept your conclution. You are comparing this forum where you see the intermost thoughts (for better or worse) of people that own guns. When you say:

"I have been traveling across the country for the last 4 years quite extensivly. I have encountered just about every type of person."

With this I hope you realize the difference. "Encountering" someone is totally different to them opening up to you and pouring their hearts out. "Encounterd" people are on their best behavior generally, fitting right into the social strata that they assume you want to see.

Also, that group of people fall into the "sheep" category. They go about their daily lifes without a care in the world. The folks here at least are aware of the POSSIBLITY of *SHTF*. Most are not holed up in their parents (or their) basement clutching their guns (or should I say "clinging" )

America is not immune to history. All countries fall, it's just a matter of when.
