Local, local,local…….. Broken record? Perhaps. Have you tried to buy any ammo lately? Buy the commodities that are still affordable. Have you planted any fruit trees? I am well aware of the time and expense of planting fruit trees and how long it takes to achieve the first harvest.
This is not the case for Black Berries, Raspberries, and Blue Berries. If things go well I will also plant a few grape vines this weekend. I try not to tell folks I am a prepper, I don’t like the word. Never really have.
At over 2 million for the first time in history, a 40% increase from the prior
quarter, and nearly a 100% from a year ago, when it comes to getting guns,
American just like Cypriots in need of cash, have just one option: get in
After 4 years in the US Marines…….. I don’t do lines of any kind, ask my wife it drives her nuts, really I WILL not wait in line for anything……. This would also be true of soup lines. Sheep wait in line to be slaughtered, the conditioning of the human psyche……… Soup lines and hand outs.
I try very hard to stay far away from my counter parts in regards to the Free Shit Army disparages, because after all we are all FSA in one form or another. Although there should be considerations for those that refuse to help their own situations of misfortune. Trash will always be trash.
If you are waiting in line at the moment…. you deserve it. Too harsh? So be it. The cattle are waking, and the majority of them are not in a position to get out of line, they missed the proverbial boat.
There will NOT be enough resources to feed and water 350 million Americans, we spoke in the past of the newly awakened with their juvenile philosophies of hitting the 100 acre woods and foraging and shooting all the bambies. Shall we put the pencil to this rather odd reasoning?
Now keep in mind the most recent statistics DO NOT account for the stresses on the deer herd because of the recent prolonged harsh winter.
The current white tail herd size is approximately 30,000,000, average weight would be about 175 pounds, caped, dressed and deboned would allow approximately 80 pounds of consumable meat not including the organ meat. 30 million x 80 pounds = 2, 400, 000,000 pounds of available deer meat. Divide that by the population of the USA, it would allow for about 6.8 pounds of deer meat per person, and of course a extinct herd.
The feeder animal population is nill, how long would it take for the stock yards to quit supplying the grocery stores? After all we must realize just like guns and ammo…… You will be waiting in line.
Do you know who owns the horses in your AO? You should. And just to set the record straight…… Where will all the bullets come from to kill off the White Tail Herd for consumption? Wire Cutter / Kenny did an article not long ago about fishing gear, and the man was spot on, it would be a very wise investment while it’s still relatively inexpensive.
I stocked up years ago on my fishing gear, trot lines, jug lines would be a smart thing to add to one’s preps. Save those used milk jugs… and for heaven’s sake store them away from UV rays.
If you are not currently investing in Heirloom Garden Seed, and other means to feed yourself and family………. the picture is not pretty. Can’t happen here you say? Better wipe the sleep from your eyes, and get out of that soup line.
As children we watched the Walton’s, my family still watches it, it’s a wonderful family friendly TV show. And the writers and producers were very, very historically accurate in regards to how a small family survived those times.
You did not see any cattle, only a milk cow, and a mule, there was always a chicken coop, and pigs being fed slop. They hunted for turkey and fished for catfish and trout. There was a garden near the home that the entire family tended.
If you pay very close attention to the meals that were served in the episodes, you would never see large cuts of beef being served, other than a special occasion. Lots of ham, fried chicken and catfish. The smoke house was often in view as well, cold smoking process to preserve the pork. The root cellar was always full.
I suppose it’s time to get off my soap box, after all…….. Some folks enjoy waiting in line.
Horse it’s the other white meat.
