Yeah, remember that they tried to get the pole-dancing, booty-short wearing party chick in the first season to kill her cat, on camera, too.
I really don't know who's sadder, the producers of this show or the people in it?

I've posted before that I blame the "preppers" who signed on to this show more than the producers. Now, even more so, after the first season. If your so <expletive deleted> stupid as to think that you're going to be shown in a positive light, then you already are pretty much behind the power curve and your judgement obviously poor.
In each and every episode, anything good is beaten down and the stupidity of the preppers is highlighted and sensationalized. However, who is giving them fodder? THE PREPPERS.
The guy from Texas who blames his partner for shooting the rifle inside the hide. . .it was fault of HIM, not his inexperienced friend for not ensuring the muzzle was outside the window. MOREOVER, Mr. <expletive deleted> Know-It-All obviously didn't know how to wear his ear protection. Want proof? Why wasn't the shooter also deafened by the same blast?
Then, he allowed the cameramen to film as he allowed his son to kill a goat. While others may complain, I guess I have a different upbringing in that I was raised on a farm. I was wringing chicken heads, killing sheep and goats and even cows at 9 years old, with my own hands. That was once what life was like. BUT, I guess Mr. <expletive deleted> Alamo wanted to show how big and tough he was. . .perhaps he was even offered extra money as Pole-Dancer Chick claimed she was to kill her cat.
I mean, really. . .what's next? Honey-Boo-Boo's Chinese Invasion Preps (with daddy saying "You're gonna stay here and defend this trailer!")?
The really odd thing is. . .if I'm not mistaken (and I don't think I am) the people who are producing this is actually a company owned by "Practical Preppers," the alleged "experts" who rate the preps. Furthermore, I'm 99% certain this is one of the groups that was in the first episode of Season One. I guess they don't realize that this reflects directly upon them, as well.
I have no doubt they're already recruiting for Season Three. Furthermore, I have no doubt, they'll find enough idiots to fill each episode with glamorous stupidity, further denigrating the concept of preparedness.
And <expletive deleted> me if I can't stop watching. THAT's what's so frustrating.
(the shame. . .THE SHAME)
