Wash. DC Financial Crisis - Prepare While There Is Still Time

Wash. DC Financial Crisis - Prepare While There Is Still Time 0

Preppers have heard about a collapse date for at least 30 years but the doddering DC establishment, the Swamp, has managed to keep things from completely cratering mostly by borrowing more money.  That time is now at an end.  The US Treasury now has $168B in cash or about 50-60 day’s worth of activity.  The National Debt is now at $19.96T (yes that’s Trillion) dollars or $166,000 per taxpayer.  The current borrowing authority is $20T.  Game over, checkmate and let me now tell you why.

Canned Meats a Tasty Alternative 2

Canned meats are experiencing a resurgence in the Prepper Market as people realize that surviving can mean thriving.  We don’t have to be bored with less tasteful foods or grains, cereals, especially when weight is not a prime consideration.  Canned meats come in two standard sizes, 14.5oz and Quarts or 28oz.  The small cans are good for 1-2 people and the larger size will feed 3-4.  This week I did a survey of available suppliers of canned meats and the results are as expected.  High quality Non-GMO, Anti-biotic and Hormone free products carry the highest prices.  I was able to find a couple of providers that provided a quality product but they are aggregators, not raising their own livestock and thus have less control over how the animals are managed prior to slaughter.

Post Constitutional America, A Return to Tribalism 0

While I typically don’t focus on politics, there is a certain urgency at the moment as the Democrat Party Emerging Tribalism will result in violence and civil unrest.  Think Rwanda with the genocide of Tutsis by the Hutu tribe.  The Democratic Party of the United States is rapidly moving down the road followed by the Hutu and so many tribes before them.

Stay or Go - Bugging In or Bugging Out, How to Decide 3

Assuming we are not faced with the chaos of a grid down situation via an EMP, civil war, economic collapse that is impacting our entire country the decision to bug in vs bug out is the biggest question the prepper must face.  In a localized emergency (Earthquake, Tsunami, Fire, Flood, Storm etc., there is help, safety and security available elsewhere.  Do you take your bug out bag and go find that help or do you hunker down and wait for the help to get to you?
