Some light reading for dhex.

Trump, the Blue-Collar President by Anthony Scaramucci
TRUMP, THE BLUE-COLLAR PRESIDENT is the comeback story for America and Americans. Both Wall Street and Main Street are now thriving and will continue to do so under our current president and his economic policies. Scaramucci shares his insights and stories from his long-term relationship with President Trump.
This is especially odd to me, because I was just reading an Economist article today about "The Next Recession"

I did get a giggle out of the comments section on that:
Good video, but I was hoping this would be more about personal preparedness, not so institutional. Would love to hear some personal finance strategies next!
Advice save some money and not just in a bank. Greece only allowed something in the range of 20$ to be pulled out of accounts during their hard times. Second start a food storage. stuff you actually eat work up to 6 months of it.
Jeez, I was just looking for investment advice, not End Times advice.

I hear lamb's blood on the door is supposed to forestall the Angel of Death. But that's a little out of my price range these days, so when I buy ground beef I just sprinkle some of the juice out of the bottom of the styrofoam tray.

Most people that stockpile food and gold also stockpile bullets. Just sayin'.

You know who's weirdly into survival/end times prepping and tend to keep it low key? Mormons.

I had a couple of relatives who were Mormon (they later left). They had the whole "two years' food reserve in the house at all times" thing.

I recently learned that one of my wife's colleagues and her husband, folks we're pretty friendly with outside her work, have gone prepper over the last several years. To the point where they both got their CCW permits, amassed a pretty decent assortment of firearms, train with them regularly, and are looking at "cabins" in Vermont & New Hampshire as a place to bug out to. The guy's brother already has a bug out spot set up in VT.

Now they've always leaned right, but I'd always considered them typical New England republicans of the Rockefeller sort. Good folks, raised two lovely daughters that are off to college now, solid neighbors, fun to hang out with, etc.

Nope. They're a little nuts.

There's a certain level of it that makes sense just because shit happens, especially when you live in places where natural disasters are frequent (hello, hurricanes!). But full-on TEOTWAWKI prepping is just apocalypse LARPing.

Living near the Cascadia fault, I probably should have an earthquake kit. But it's always been on the 'something I should get around to' list.

Yeah, living in one of the hurricane magnets means you have to give some thought to it.

I may actually replace my current portable generator with a dual fuel model that runs on gas or propane. I usually have anywhere from 2 to 4 propane cylinders full at any given moment that seems better than worrying about gas.

internet confession - I watch that show, (as well as Survivor) and I was annoyed that some political twitter that I follow tweeted out that story when I was watching it Wednesday.
