It's been a few hours since I dropped my little bomb on my unsuspecting audience and now it is time for further bombing. Sorry if I offend anyone but it has to be done. We are about to enter a time of social breakdown in this country. All forms of social control may just very well disappear. Your constitution and your laws and your church teachings and a whole lot of other social norms may have to hit the road. When people are starving and their babies are hungry then you had better look out, because things are about to get real. If you figure 1% of the country as preppers, then 99% are not preppers. That means in a 500 home sub-division 5 homes are ready for bad times and 495 ain't ready for a damn thing. But they will be ready to take what YOU have in order to prolong their own life. This is called the law of the jungle. I live in an area of heavy woods. There is wildlife all over the place. And that wildlife is constantly killing and eating in order to stay alive. In order for something to live, something must die. And in a social breakdown the majority of those attending the procedure are going to die. Simple as that.
There are many good people across this land who have told me things are going bad real quick, as in next week. This prompts me to tell you that it is time to get ready. What you ain't got done had better get done. And you had better watch out for the other guy because he may be trying to knife you in the back and take your food. Just as soon as things go wrong they will be out looking for victims.
I'll tell you a little story now. It was the late 50's and I was on vacation in Idaho with my mother, my grandmother and my first cousin. We were just South of Mack's Inn, Idaho, on the Buffalo River. There was a dam on the river and it was about half a mile from the highway but it was a beautiful place to swim and relax. Pretty primitive, actually, but something out of a picture book. Gorgeous. Now, you gotta understand that the water was colder than a well diggers ass in the Klondike. I mean to tell you, it was cold. But I had been in western rivers and streams for a few years and I was sorta used to it. So, after we changed into our swimming trunks we got up on the dam and your truly bravely jumped off the little short diving board into the frigid water. Gasp! But I made it and even swam a few strokes. Then my cousin decided to make the plunge. He hit that cold water and it pushed all the air out of him. He came up gasping for breath and crying for help. Like a new-born dumbass I swam to him to save him. Boy, was that ever a shocker. He grabbed hold of me and started using me for a step ladder, holding himself out of the water and breathing what he could. No thought was given to how I WAS BREATHING. I made a decision to break the hold my cousin had on me. I believe it was called a death grip. You have to understand that I was underwater and not in a good place for doing heavy mental deliberation. So I started punching him just as had and as fast as I could, right in his city-boy soft midsection. His grip finally loosened and I broke free. Upon popping to the surface I swam the 8 or 10 feet top the dam and climbed out. Then I turned to him and told him top swim over to the dam himself and get a hold of it. This he did and I got him out of the water. Life was a lot more secure after that.
But you are me and the rest of society is my cousin. I had experience in cold water and I was a good swimmer. My cousin was primarily a dead weight in the whole thing. We are preppers and society is not prepared worth a damn. When the SHTF they will become preppers and you will become the supplier. They will stock up on what you have saved. They will eat while you will starve, if they have their way. DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN ! I have published over 1000 posts, closer to 1100 really, and I can't count too many that have paid attention. But you better pay attention to the masses when the SHTF. Those people are dangerous and possibly desperate. Their priorities are greater than yours, in their opinion. It is the law of the jungle again and only the strong survive. Well, if you were strong enough to prep then you can be strong enough to hold on to your preps. Personally I like my 25 inch barrel 12 gauge shotgun to help me retain my strength. And I am not saying to not help a friend out in time of need, but to help your friend you will have to be strong enough to be of some effect. And if you have lost your food then you are of little effect. Try to stay alive.
