    Are you TOO prepared?

    Considering that literally, no one 'bugged out' or go to use that ammo stash of his in anger in last 100 years or so in US , what makes folks think that they should be 'prepping' for 'bugging out, whatever they mean by that term.

    US Women's National Team Players Association wants TRIPLE the pay over men's team.
