Panic Buying - I Warned LiveLeakers to be prepared almost a decade ago

The recent panic buying sprees in response to the Covid-19 pandemic reminded me that self-sufficiency and emergency preparedness were the topics of my very first YourSay over 8 years ago ( https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=f9c_1320182176 ).

Had a lot of people do a lot of laughing about me being a paranoid "prepper" back then. Who's laughing now? At least I didn't have to go out in a panic and fight with other lemmings over toilet paper and bottled water.

The Governor of my state, Minnesota, announced school closings this morning. As a high school teacher, this will give me the opportunity to stay at home with my kids, AND still continue working through our district's e-leaning protocols. There are a lot of other parents, and school workers who won't have it so good. My thoughts and prayers go out to them, and to all Americans who will be adversely affected by this pandemic. Keep calm, follow the advice of the CDC and your state's health agencies.... ignore the garbled, inconsistent, and erroneous claims made by the President, and everything will be alright.

P.S. In that video I also exhorted people to vote for Ron Paul in 2012. That advise wasn't heeded either. Imagine if it was Ron Paul's second term right now.... we would actually have a real medical doctor and true patriot leading us through this crisis, instead of a reality TV show personality and real estate grifter.

P.S.S. Shout out to LiveLeaker flashj2 for reminding me of this video. Cheers, Bro!
