The world today is a messy place. With North Korea, Russia, and Syria all vying for a spot on America’s “next to deal with” list, there is no shortage of angst running amok.
It is with this trepidation that many pundits and journalists are rightfully concerned about the state of affairs around the globe. Russia is threatening the United States if we interfere again against the brutal Assad regime in Syria. North Korea is posturing for a nuclear test that would certainly send us to war. Mexico isn’t exactly thrilled with us either, and don’t you dare forget about ISIS.
All of this tension, and the subsequent heartburn, has led to a massive boom in the doomsday bunker business, as the wealthy continue to burrow deep into the earth to avoid the pitfalls of the current global climate.
“The Trump administration’s increased military strikes might cause fear for some people. But for one North Texas man, it means big bucks.
“Nora Holloway of Dallas is one of those folks who is concerned about the state of the world.
“Citing the recent bombings in Syria, Afghanistan and the growing tension with North Korea, Holloway posted online to see if anyone wanted to ‘go in’ on an underground bunker.
“’I’m in no position to buy one,’ said Holloway. ‘However, I think that for a lot of people that is a serious concern and a lot of people have done so and will be doing so.’”
“The interest level Holloway is expressing is an understatement.
“’If I took 30 people and I worked 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, I still wouldn’t be caught up right now,’ said Clyde Scott of Rising S Bunkers in Murchison, Texas.
“Scott said there is around a three-month backlog for one of his subterranean shelters.”
The fears may not subside anytime soon, either. North Korea appears ready to test yet another nuclear weapon this week, and Syria’s ridiculous response to the allegations regarding their chemical weapons attack could drag out for the foreseeable future.
