Glenn Beck Peddles "Food Insurance"...

We all know about how Glenn Beck loves to spread the fear that we're heading for apocalyptic-like economic collapse.  As long as he isn't calling the shots, and as long as god isn't running the show, we've got everything to fear.  

In step with his mormon beliefs, Beck is urging his followers to stock up and be prepared.  And he suggests that you allow "Food Insurance" to prepare you.  Seems pretty obvious, but I wanted to be sure, so I googled "Food Insurance," and "Utah," and wham!  There it is!  Here's what you'll find about the company on Manta:

"Food Insurance Com, L L C is a private company categorized under Frozen Food and Freezer Plans, Except Meat and located in Kaysville, UT. Our records show it was established in 2009 and incorporated in Utah. Current estimates show this company has an annual revenue of 390,000 and employs a staff of approximately 6."

A company founded a year ago with a staff of 6, and a revenue of $390,000 advertising through Glenn Beck already?  Looks like business will be booming for them very shortly, since they've found a way to branch out beyond their limited mormon customer base.  Their packages range from $199 for the two week single person backpack, to $9,995 for the family of five survival kit.  If they really want to attract Tea Party money, they'd be smart to design an "end times fanny pack." 

While it's never a bad idea to be prepared for the worst, there are cheaper ways to do it.  You can start with being realistic.

...and by the way, Sean Hannity has been promoting "Food Insurance" since June.
