great word: "MOAB"

Will the MOAB (mother of all bailouts) lead to TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it)? Survivalists think so (and use great acronyms too). Via article at Treehugger. The problem for treehuggers is that "if we are going to choose to drown in debt, than so will a good many other dreams also drown." (i.e. worrying about emissions, recycling etc...who cares if you are busy stockpiling ramen and generators). As blogger Mark Ontkush writes at Treehugger, the survivalists also have some hugely practical ideas that we might all take a look at.
