What do we have in common with Glen Beck?!?

Glen Beck, echoing the beliefs of his Mormon Church, has often urged his "followers" to stockpile food since he believes that a disruption to the food supply will happen sometime. He also says that Hurricane Irene is a "blessing from God" and warning to those who haven't followed his advice.

I'm all for stockpiling food but using scare tactics, as is Beck's custom, is a bit over the top. There are other reasons I would stockpile food including (but not limited to):

  • the failing economy
  • China's rise to power
  • the number of natural disasters
  • the increase in prices of food
  • more genetically modified foods on the market
Can you think of more?
