Prepping for Retirees (And Those on SS & Fixed Income)

prepping for retirees

When it comes to prepping for retirees (or those on Social Security or those with a fixed income), this endeavor can be quite challenging. After all, money isn’t coming in like it once was, and now every single penny is accounted for and put away for a specific purpose.

Not to mention, if you’re struggling with medical bills/expenses, this can add an extra amount of stress. After all, we only have so much money, and this forces us to have to choose between the medications we need to survive now, and the supplies we need to survive later. This is a very delicate and hard-to-find balance that puts most folks in a state of anxiety, frustration, and even panic.

However, I have good news. It turns out that prepping for a crisis in these types of situations isn’t as hard as you think. You just have to get in the right mindset.

There are methods that can help you obtain life-saving survival gear, all while staying within your budget. And, if you go about it the right way, you may just find yourself with a little extra money, rather than struggling to rub two pennies together.

There is hope – and I’ll show you why in this article about…

Prepping for Retirees (And Those on SS & Fixed Income)

Don’t Spend A Dime On These Resources

Many preppers forget that preparing for a crisis doesn’t just mean stocking up on supplies and hoarding survival food. It’s also about preparing your mind and your abilities to survive.

I hold a very strong belief that absolutely every person in this world can contribute something in a survival situation. Whether you’re elderly, have a disability, or have very little money, it doesn’t matter. Everyone has the ability – and the responsibility – to contribute something of value in a crisis.

That’s why it’s crucial to start learning all you can – and you can do this without spending a dime. For instance, there are TONS of videos and websites online that offer important information on how to survive. And, if you don’t want to pay for internet, you can always go to the public library and use theirs. You can also check out books on survival.

These resources can teach you incredibly valuable skills that’ll help you when SHTF. My advice? Pick a topic that’s interesting to you (or one that you already know about and want to learn more) and read deeper into it. Love to sew? Enjoy cooking? Interested in first-aid? Want the best ways to build a fire? How about shooting and hunting tips? No matter who you are, there is SOMETHING you can do (and actually enjoy learning about) that will help you prepare better for an upcoming emergency.

Note: Here’s another idea. Trade skills! For example, maybe you have a pressure canner and a smoker, which you use to preserve meats, fruits and veggies. Well, if you’ve got a buddy who just went fishing, you can offer to teach them how to smoke/preserve their bounty. In return, maybe they can share a few survival skills with you that you need help/practice with. The opportunities are endless!

Survival Supplies For Cheap

Needing a good deal? You can’t just expect to go to any store and expect that they’re giving you a good deal. If you really want to save money, you’ll need to do some price comparisons.

Many people forget that the Dollar Store has tons of items you can use for survival. It’s seriously surprising how much gear you can get for cheap! Don’t believe me? Look at the videos below (there are even more on YouTube) showing you just how far your money can go at the Dollar Store if you’re smart about it.

One of the best ways to do this is online. By simply searching for terms like “survival gear discounts” and “survival coupons” you can instantly get a ton of websites that have survival gear for cheap. I’ve even seen some that are 50-80% off retail.Heck, by doing a simple Google search I found First-Aid-Product.com, which offers 88% off survival gear. That’s hard to beat!

Amazon is also one of the best websites for this, as it allows you to search for specific items and do price comparisons in one easy site. Also, you can add the specific items you’re looking for to a wish list. The prices will automatically update over time, so you can keep checking back and seeing the prices increase and decrease. This will help you ensure that you really are buying at the lowest price.

Make Some Extra $$

Money is one of the primary stressors that people have – and it only gets worse when you’re living on a budget. That’s why it’s important to take advantage of all the opportunities out there to make some extra money for preps!

One of the best ways to make some extra cash is to go through your house and do some serious decluttering. Set aside the things you never use and don’t need, and put it in a pile. Then sell it to friends, or start a garage sale. It may surprise you how much stuff you have lying around that you don’t actually need!

Now this is just one example, but there are lots more ideas out there! Here’s a few videos with more ideas on how you can earn some extra cash to help you prepare for the worst.

Democrat Mayor Welcomes Illegals to Denver

after-barriers-were-placed-dozens-migrants

During a recent interview with CNBC, Denver Mayor Mike Johnston’s comments regarding the city’s approach to immigration underscore a troubling trend of prioritizing the interests of migrants over the well-being of American citizens.

Johnston’s admission that Denver is grappling with an influx of migrants is a damning indictment of the city’s failed open-door policies. Rather than acknowledging the inherent risks and challenges associated with unchecked migration, Johnston attempts to portray Denver’s approach as a delicate balancing act between compassion and pragmatism. However, his words betray a dangerous naivety that threatens to undermine the safety and prosperity of Denverites.

By championing an ideology of unlimited hospitality, Denver has effectively placed the burden of its misguided altruism squarely on the shoulders of its own citizens. Johnston’s assertion that the city is proud of its ability to manage the migrant crisis is not only arrogant but also deeply troubling. Instead of celebrating the city’s failure to control its borders, Denver should be prioritizing the needs and concerns of its own residents.

Johnston’s plea for federal assistance serves as a thinly veiled attempt to absolve Denver of its responsibility for the consequences of its reckless immigration policies. It is outrageous that hardworking taxpayers are expected to foot the bill for the city’s misguided generosity. Denverites should not be forced to accept cuts to city budgets and services in order to accommodate migrants who enter the country illegally.

Furthermore, Johnston’s insistence on portraying migrants as victims deserving of unwavering support only serves to exacerbate the problem. By perpetuating the myth of the noble migrant in need of rescue, Johnston glosses over the very real dangers and disruptions caused by uncontrolled immigration. Denverites deserve better than a mayor who prioritizes virtue signaling over their safety and prosperity.

It is time for Johnston and other proponents of open borders to face the harsh reality of their policies. Unrestricted immigration poses serious threats to national security, public safety, and economic stability. Denver cannot continue down this reckless path without risking irreparable harm to its own citizens.

In light of these challenges, it is imperative that Denver enact sensible immigration policies that prioritize the needs and interests of American citizens. This includes strengthening border security, enforcing immigration laws, and implementing measures to deter illegal immigration. Anything less would be a betrayal of the trust placed in Johnston by the people of Denver.

Texas Dem. Rep: No Taxes For Black Americans

phrase-reparations-black-community-on-banner

In a recent episode of the “Black Lawyers Podcast,” Rep. Jasmine Crockett, a Democrat from Texas, ignited a firestorm of controversy with her proposal to exempt Black Americans from paying taxes as a form of reparations. This suggestion has triggered widespread outrage among conservatives, who see it as yet another attempt to further racialize American politics and deepen divisions within society.

Crockett’s proposition, which she herself admitted may not be successful due to the fact that many within the Black community are already struggling financially and may not be paying taxes, has been met with condemnation from conservative voices across the country. Critics argue that such a plan would not only be ineffective in addressing the underlying issues faced by Black Americans but would also exacerbate racial tensions and perpetuate a victimhood narrative.

By singling out one racial group for special treatment through tax exemptions, Crockett’s proposal threatens to further polarize an already divided nation along racial lines. Conservatives view this as yet another example of the left’s obsession with identity politics, where race takes precedence over individual merit and personal responsibility.

Moreover, Crockett’s suggestion of tax exemptions as a form of reparations is seen as deeply misguided and unfair. Conservatives argue that reparations, if they are to be considered at all, should be based on need and merit, rather than race. By proposing blanket tax exemptions based solely on race, Crockett fails to address the complex socioeconomic factors that contribute to inequality and disadvantage in America.

Conservatives also express concern about the lack of consistency and coordination between federal and state approaches to reparations. Crockett’s call for tax exemptions at the federal level raises questions about how such measures would interact with existing state-level initiatives, potentially leading to confusion and inequity in the distribution of resources.

As the debate over reparations continues to intensify, conservatives are calling for a more thoughtful and inclusive approach that focuses on addressing the root causes of inequality and promoting economic opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race. Crockett’s proposal, they argue, only serves to further entrench racial divisions and undermine efforts to achieve genuine unity and progress in the United States.

Whoopi Goldberg Claims Conservatives Want to “Bring Back Slavery”

new-york-ny-october-28-whoopi

In a recent episode of ABC’s “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg stirred controversy with her startling claim that some Republicans are inclined to “bring slavery back.” The comment, made during a discussion about the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate an 1864 abortion ban, has sparked widespread condemnation, with critics lambasting Goldberg for her inflammatory and unsubstantiated rhetoric.

Goldberg’s assertion, delivered in the heat of the panel discussion, has been roundly denounced as not only inflammatory but also deeply irresponsible. By equating Republican policies on abortion with a desire to resurrect one of the darkest chapters in American history, Goldberg not only demonstrated a profound lack of understanding of the issues at hand but also showcased a troubling disregard for reasoned discourse.

Conservative voices have been particularly vocal in their condemnation of Goldberg’s remarks, highlighting the egregious nature of her comparison and the harm it does to meaningful dialogue. They argue that such hyperbolic and baseless accusations only serve to further polarize an already divided political landscape, making it increasingly difficult to find common ground on important issues.

Moreover, critics have pointed out the dangerous precedent set by Goldberg’s rhetoric, warning of the potential consequences of allowing such inflammatory statements to go unchallenged. They argue that by indulging in sensationalism and distortion, Goldberg not only does a disservice to the public discourse but also undermines the credibility of her own platform.

In the wake of the controversy, Goldberg has faced mounting pressure to retract or clarify her remarks, with many calling on her to apologize for the offense caused. However, as of yet, Goldberg has remained steadfast in her position, offering no indication of contrition or acknowledgment of the harm caused by her words.

Goldberg’s comments are part of a greater problem in American media and politics: One where conservative Americans are routinely demonized for their beliefs without consequence. This rhetoric should alarm all patriotic Americans interested in the free and honest discussion of ideas and politics.
