Personal Bunkers Resurgence Related To Trump's America

Good Day World!

Step right up...er...right down the stairs to the bunker of your choice.

They selling like hotcakes these days.

Trump's chaotic presidency has already spurred Americans to look for shelter more secure than their homes.

A Texas businessman whose trade is in survival says the Trump administration has been a boon to his bottom line. Clyde Scott of Rising S Company in Texas says orders for survival shelters have doubled amid political uncertainty.

"The biggest complaints from my customers are — one, Trump and his administration can't deal with facts," he told NBC News. 

"Second, because of that — the travel ban — and the lack of cooperation in other countries, we're not able to get intelligence we need to protect the country. Because of those two things, potential for war has increased many fold."

I was 12-years old when the Cuban Missile Crisis (October 1962) happened. I remember going with my Dad to a supermarket to stock up on food.

People were panic shopping. Aisles were full of concerned people expecting the worst. For 13 days I waited, along with the rest of the country, to see if a nuclear war was going to happen.

Thankfully, it didn't.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying we're at the stage where a majority of Americans are worried enough to invest in bunkers.

What I am saying is that this uptick in the bunker business is the canary in the goldmine. 

Chump hasn't been in office a 100 days yet and the chaos he's created has not only shaken a lot of American's confidence, but also the world's confidence in our government. 

Of course, if you're a Trumpanzee you see this surge in the bunker business as a step towards making America Great Again!

Time for me to walk on down the road...
