Canned Meats a Tasty Alternative

Canned Meats a Tasty Alternative

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.

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

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?

1992 Los Angeles Riots, Lessons Learned in Korea-town

During the arrest, Mr. King resisted and was severely beaten with police batons, tasered, kicked and punched.  The video captured the routine ill treatment of minorities by the LAPD and fostered the resentment that many minorities in Los Angeles felt towards the LAPD. 

 

With the video evidence four LAPD officers were charged with assault, and excessive use of force.  On April 29, 1992, the four officers were acquitted and the riots began that afternoon and lasted for four days ending after National Guard and Marines were deployed to restore order.  60 people were dead, over 2,000 injured and more than $1 Billion in damage was caused.
