Government Says Get Ready For Zombies

Government Says Get Ready For Zombies

The Homeland Security Department urged citizens on Thursday to prepare for a zombie apocalypse, according to The Associated Press. The rationale behind the warning is that if you are prepared for zombies, you’ll probably be able to survive a national disaster.

The government recommends that you have an evacuation plan in place, a change of clothes, water, medications and flashlights.

This isn’t the first time the government has warned citizens about the zombie apocalypse. In May 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a post urging people to prepare.

At that time, the following supplies were recommended:

  • Water (1 gallon per person per day)
  • Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
  • Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
  • Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
  • Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
  • Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
  • Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
  • First Aid supplies (although you’re a goner if a zombie bites you, you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane)

Earlier this year, following Rudy Eugene’s cannibalistic attack in Miami, the CDC denied the existence of zombies.

Agency spokesman David Daigle wrote in an email to the Huffington Post: “CDC does not know of a virus or condition that would reanimate the dead (or one that would present zombie-like symptoms).”

      The trouble is Christopher, common sense does not exist in most places. Have you forgotten New Orleans when Katrina hit??? Hell, there was not a shred of common sense there. And it doesn’t hurt to remind people to be prepared…thought most of us know to do so.

      • Sirian

        Common sense was put on the “endangered species” list about thirty years ago. It’s been proven quite true several times since.

        Government Says Get Ready For Zombies

        They might not be the brain eating undead of the movies, but starving, disease ridden, plague ridden or some other contagion could create millions of insane, crazed, or fever crazed people doing a good zombie immatation…just as dangerous as a movie zombie.

        Agreed, it is very possible for something such as that to happen. If so, Lock and Load, THAT is common sense! Let us pray that it will never come about.

      • JimH

        Common sense, the least common of the senses.
        It’s hiding out with common courtesy.

      • SJJolly

        Common sense, without adequate financial resources, limits one’s choices. Such as the poor people of New Orleans who expected to ride busses away from Katrina, but the city management left the busses sitting in the bus yards, leaving them with the choice of either riding out the storm at home, or trying to walk out.

      • JimH

        Hi Jolly, The lack of common sense was with the leadership.(not useing availeable resources)
        Not so much the victims.

    • eddie47d

      You are definitely weird Christopher but not quite a zombie. LOL. As Skippy pointed out people can be unprepared under any President or did you feel that urgent need to take a hit on Obama without thinking? How many were prepared under Hoover when the Great Depression hit?

      • FreedomFighter

        You may not realize this Eddie47d, Obama is leader, its his job to prepare the population, he is not doing it… he lacks the experiance, skill and most other leadership qualities required. He is just another good tele-promter reading orator, not a leader of men, unqualified and incompetent to lead America or its people.

        That’s funny, Prepaeref or a disaster? DHS said if you have more than a few days worth of food they would consider you a terrorist…!!! Let ge the story straight…Prepare or not to Prepare…that is the anser? DHS wants you to but a lot of food so they can come and arrest you for being a terrorist…that’s the real plan…!!! People wake-up, DHS, CDC, FBI, and the rest of them are not working for the American People…they are working for their Liberal/Communist/Muslim interest only…!!! God I wish people would do their research, it all out there to be seen…and thats only the tip of the iceberg…!!!

      • SJJolly

        FreedomFighter: BH Obama is President Of The United States, a nation of over 300-million people, not your daddy. You expect him to personally direct you in what you should do, in each of several score possible emergencies? Not to mention, if he actually tried, wouldn’t you scream in rebellion?

      • FreedomFighter

        SJOLLY — BO as leader is preparing:

        Various government agencys have purchansed 5 rounds of ammunition (hollowpoint-manripper) for every man woman and child in the USA. Note: these rounds are illegale to even use in war.

        FEMA Camps – not with the barbed wire facing out to keep out whomever but facing IN to keep in whomever need FEMA assistance – they even have machine gun towers like NAZI POW camps.

        Training hundreds of thousands of NATO troops like the Russion Spesnatsis to subdue and kill Americans in the USA.

        Millions Upon Millions of coffins

        New lavish fully equipt survival bunkers for the elite.

        The Obama regime is not:

        stockpiling medical equpt for disaster relief
        training and preparing hospitols and expanding medical emergency facilities
        building bunkers stocked with supplies for the populace
        stockpiling various vaccines
        stockpiling food for population
        re-inforcing the electrical grid for EMP and solar activity
        hardening nuclear power stations to survive EMP and solar flares
        …list goes on and on

      • eddie47d

        If the government stockpiles anything there are plenty to scream and holler. Your list only has a wee bit of truth in it and plenty of fabrication. It’s either the government is wasting too much money and is over prepared or never prepared enough.



      • eddie47d

        …and Christopher bites into every poisonous apple.

      • Rage Fury

        Hey eddie, if you would be so kind ,please point out what you assert to be the fabrications.

    • THG

      ” Common Sense ” in todays world is a ” Super Power “

  • Antirino

    Perhaps we should be on the lookout for “Obama Zombies.” They abound unfortunately.

  • steven

    Talk about a schizophrenic government. If you have more than a weeks worth of food stored away you’re considered a potential terrorist by the department of homeland security.
    Go to YouTube and watch never again by the NRA. If that doesn’t wake you up. Nothing ever will.

  • carl

    I watched a video where a woman scientist who worked for NATO said they (nato) did research to find what would make people the most violent so they developed the super hybrid rabies virus. Look it up. the government made zombies are coming.

    • http://N/A Eric The Red

      OK there Carl…did you forget your 7th grace science class? Rabies is FATAL to humans in 7-10 days….and does NOT re-animate dead bodies. It is a neurological disorder (that means it affects your brain)…resulting in erratic behavior, confusion, inflammation of brain tissue and ultimately death. You go kind of nutty; why do you think that a dog so afflicted is called a ‘mad’ dog?

      • eddie47d

        They (Alex Jones) put out so much information that isn’t accurate that eventually no one will believe anything.

  • Wyatt

    What ! No supply of assault weapons and special Zombie killing ammunition ? Oops I forgot , they don’t want us to have those . We might use them against the storm troopers they send to herd us into their Gulags .

    Zombie’s ? Really , cut me a break ! The only zombies we need worry about are called Obambie’s !

    • CEO

      And what about a knife that will do some good during a zombie attack?

      What good is a utility knife?

      • Buster the Anatolian

        CEO, remember who is making the recomindations. That bunch at DHS/TSA/CDC think a box cutter or utility knife in untrained hands is more dangerous than a proper fighting knife in trained hands.

    • Ol’ Grey Ghost

      Does anyone else here over 40 remember when these preparedness lists used to include a firearm as a necessity? Even California used to suggest that people include one or more of them in an earthquake survival kit. My, how times have changed…

  • JimH

    Are our lives so mundane that to get peoples attention we need a ficticious problem to get people to prepare for an emergency?
    Huricanes, earthquakes, tornado’s or volcano’s aren’t scary enough. We need to prepare for zombies.

    • phideaux

      JimH, try reading the article again and this time pay attention to what the words say.

      “The rationale behind the warning is that if you are prepared for zombies, you’ll probably be able to survive a national disaster.”

      • JimH

        Hi phideaux, My point is why not prepare for something real, not a ficticious problem.
        Zombies, space aliens, maybe vampires.
        If I’m ready for those things a huricane will still have the dangers of a huricane.

  • ed holden

    If you come across a zombie shoot’em in the head, if that doesn’t work burn’em. A remedy tried and true from the original Night of the Living Dead. It’s good to see our government on top of things.

    • Rick

      No, ed, use a laser beam!

      • SJJolly

        Use an UV laser for vampires — will slice and dice them at over 100 yards. :-?

  • kRIS

    The only zombies I can see are running the dept. of homeland security and the white house! Some of the other zombies, the leeches who worship at the alter of Hussain, the leeches who can’t wait to get their free chit and take the money out of your hands for themselves. A bunch of selfish hating, stupid, morons who care nothing for this country, just all the free chit Hussain will give them until he gets a second term and then they will be in for a rude awakening, he will enslave them and take away all their free chit! But they will still bow at his alter! Now those are true zombies!!!!!

  • SJJolly

    Vaccines cause violent behavior? That explains why all the mass vaccinations of the past umpteen decades always turned into mass chaos. Not.

    Alex Jones is a reliable source — of crackpot conspiracy theories.

    • Marty S.

      Guns and ammo. 12 ga. shot gun best for zombies based on Hollywood’s movies.


  • swampfox

    that would be fun in the extreme blowing the heads off oblivit zombies with m-4 or a mosin nagant.
    obaammmaa obaaammmaaa obaam SPLAT.
    would make a good flick and beleivable simce obomass zombies are real.
