This has been fun so far! Lots of good entries.

One question: When is the deadline for this contest?



Whenever you want. How about the end of the month? That gives everybody plenty of time to put on their thinking caps, get brain lubricant (for me that would be iced spiced Rum) or do their tribal spirit dance to get inspiration. at the end Winner can send shipping address to a Mod they trust. Mod can forward to me and I'll ship it. If they are the paranoid type I'll send it to a Mod and the Mod can ship it. I'll use priority mail cause its cheap. Keep 'em coming.

"...and you said I was crazy"
I guess it only really applies after the fact, but then it will be the most satisfying slogan imaginable.

"Survival is the first step towards prosperity"
Good, but maybe a bit rhetorical, survival is the first step towards anything at all, excluding death.

Posted this in another thread, but it seems applicable:

I take no credit for the image, was found via Google.

That's another thing, images and symbols can extend or reinforce the meaning of a slogan and shouldn't be excluded from discussion.
Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. – Ronald Reagan

Deadlines! They defy truth,
Look closely and you can see
Already I have won!
You can't run away on a world that's round.
You're only comin' back to where you'll be found.

Don't "live for today."  Live today FOR tomorrow.
Jesus Christ gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.  That is why the grace of God appeared to men.  It teaches us to say "no" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope--the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior.  ---Titus 2:11-14

Two in latin that I like.....

Si vis pacem, para bellum - If you wish for peace, prepare for war

Numquam non Paratus - Never Unprepared
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.  
-John Stuart Mill

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know. -written on the wall of Hoa Lo Prison; The "Hanoi Hilton"

The only thing worse than not having vital supplies for your family in a crisis is realizing that you could have easily gotten them earlier.

You might be interested in the ten-book prepper novel series called 299 Days.  I, like, wrote it and stuff.  Prepper Press is publishing it.  Seriously.  Check out www.299Days.com.

Some of my favorites.........

1.)Common sense prevails
2.)Don't squat with your spurs on
3.)Expect the unexpected
4.)If everything around you suddenly becomes quiet, refer to number three
"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it." Thomas Paine

"Survival is a form of rebellion, living is the punishment" Mr. Smith from the movie "The Way Back"

"Those who would give up freedom for a little security deserve neither" Ben Franklin

Ride hard as you can, rest when you die
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thouroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming "man what a ride!" Author unknown

Not all survive
in troubled times
the Wise prepare
the Gods decide






This is intended to be read five ways. Lines 1-4, lines 1-2, lines 2-3, lines 3-4, and finally lines 5 & 1.

I've written a fair amount of haiku, but always counted syllables. never did one based on word count before. Never had one come out like this before, either.

It doesn't matter that my haiku is a late entry--I'd be happy if the contest never ended!

I really enjoyed this entire thread tremendously, both the slogans and the haiku contest.

I sometimes wish there was a poetry thread just for the fun of it here on the Forum.

Something where people could post everything from haiku and Limericks to ballads and sonnets.

Oops--I've outed myself as a serious poetry freak!  :o

As I write this, my father is not long for this world.  I don't know that these are survival slogans, but they keep popping up in my life at various times. When I was young and in need of advise, he usually offered me some form of cowboy wisdom that left me wondering what answer he was inferring.  I'll throw it out and let you ponder the application.

"There never was a horse that couldn't be rode, never was a cowboy that couldn't be throwd."

A couple others come to mind that are just for the smiles

"Son, there's two thangs I hate to hear,,, a grown man cry and a fat lady fart."

"Never seen an ugly woman or had a bad bisquit."
