sheeple

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Referring to non-preppers as "sheeple" is a way to dehumanize them, to legitimize writing them off ahead of time. Since the beginning of time, groups have used language to make barriers real which exist psychologically. The enemy in Vietnam became VC, in WWII is was Japs or Krauts, etc. (The...

    If someone has a dead end job, or no job, a pile of bills or a foreclosure, is that person one of the sheeple? Given the aura of opprobrium surrounding the term, one would think so. But that's apparently not true. The sheeple are those who are unaware of what's really going on. A billionaire...

    First of all, let me just state that the term “sheeple” is one that I find quite offensive. Oh, don’t get me wrong I completely grasp the intent and it’s not that I don’t share similar thoughts or opinions about certain types of people…I definitely do! I find it offensive in the respect that I...

    I often stock up on extra ammo or another prep item when I feel I can afford it. I know I'm not the only one who fears that the grocery store will not always be stocked, but there are so many who think otherwise. People were telling me I didn't need a rifle when I already had a handgun. I don't...

    So, I work at a salvage yard. I sell parts at the counter and I have noticed a new trend in the off the street customers. Well mannered, well dressed people who hardly know what kind of car they drive, let alone the part they need for it. Many of them are coming in asking for small things, like...

    Went to the smokies for the weekend, stopped and let my kids check out Mingus Mill. They started to get hungry afterwards, so without thinking a thing about it, I whip out my Optimus liquid fuel stove, camping cookware, and make hot stew right there on a ledge for landscaping since there was no...

    I've come to the conclusion that beyond what I've done (storing 2 months of food and supplies) if things really go south my family is not likely to make it. Pessimist? maybe, but some would call it reality. Living in New York City + seven members in my house including elderly and infant + little...

    I was just in the break room where I work getting some coffee and overheard a couple of guys (mid twentys, average white collar workers in corporate America) and was stunned by what I heard them say. We are talking about college grads that work for a Fortune 400 company. They were discussing...

    Could somebody please define Sheeple? I see it banded about here constantly, but I'm not quite sure I know what it means. Yes, I know, Sheep+People, but it seems to be used in a variety of ways around here. Just curious to get other's responses.

    Big storm in the northeast, power out, and New York has one the highest 911 call days ever. I can imagine the pain: Dispather: "911, what's your emergency?" Drone: "Hey, my TV went out!" What will all these people do when a real emergency occurs, let alone a SHTF event...

    Can you really fend off the starving hordes or defend your property if hordes of have nots come for your stuff? Not too far from my office is a bus stop where the day laborers have chosen to gather in hope of work. There have been more than usual lately and they are determined. They are there...

    Man, every single time I go out on a date with my wife in this town I am reminded of why I do what I do. When I walk through the mall and I see all these thousands of people who have no idea what is coming I feel sorry for them. I just can't help but pity them. Part of me pity's them and the...

    The following is from a form newsletter I get from the Obama camp every week or so. It can be infuriating but often can be amusing. The following is just such a letter. I thought you would all find it interesting because on top of all the stimulus and tax money these trouser stains get, they...

    Hi Bunkies, I was searching through some old paperwork and found this amongst my old Y2K stuff. I think it's still pretty current for today's situation. Lemme know what you think: Declaration of Self-Responsibility I, -------------------------------------------------------, being an...

    You believe the G20 is a rapper or reality show. You believe talk of NWO = Professional Wrestling. You believe bailouts are NOT for CROOKS. Feel free to add your own, serious or funny. MP76
