Good morning to all of you. I am just waiting for Sunday a.m. news. Don't know that it will be headline provoking but it will be interesting. You will probably have to really dig to find out what is going on. But we are ready here and I trust you are ready where ever you are. I think the collapse is coming and I don't fear it much. The Handmaiden will shop today like she normally does and that will just about top off our preps. If the world economy blows up then we will be doing with what we have. I have plenty of seed for next years garden and it should come in handy. If prices go up 10 times what they are now, the garden will be a huge money maker as far as cash in concerned.
If you read ONE SECOND AFTER you will quickly note that the hero and his group were NOT preppers. Talk about a bunch of stumblefucks. And they are supposed to be back in the hills of North Carolina. A North Carolina hilljack would put them to shame. The main feature of the local populace is their distended bellies, caused by starvation. Idiots. But it is a novel and the author can write it the way he sees fit. The fix is in on this book. Newt Gingrich writes the introduction. You know it is going to get lots of play and lots of exposure. And it did. But Jerry D Young can write just as well and he is not raking in about ten millions dollars to make it available to us. Mr. Young, at http://forums.tpass.org/viewforum.php?f=60&sid=0cf33bc6ddcf89958f7f6d357ea1b891 , is an advocate of Scavenging in the event of a nuclear attack. And he makes no bones about it. You cruise the highways and the little towns and you round up all the food you can get your hands on. You leave no guns and ammo, no medical supplies are turned away. Tough outdoor clothing does not escape notice. His characters are always finding semi's full of canned goods out on the Highways. If society collapses it might behoove us to look for the same. And don't ever pass up any garden seed! Even if it is hybrid, get it. Non-hybrid, organic vegetables is the ideal and should be sought after. But food is food and don't you pass it up. If the enemies are taking the stuff it is LOOTING. If we do it, it is scavenging. See how that works? We have come a long way and it is too close to the finish line to get tied up in words. You do what you have to do. Like Bill Jordan used to say, "NO SECOND PLACE WINNERS". Get the stuff, bring it home, store it. Such a simple idea. Try not to leave eye witnesses. They can cause you a lot of trouble later on. Always commit only HALF of your forces to an operation. That way you always have a second chance in battle. It is also a good way to keep from biting off more than you can chew. Always pick on the easy targets. That is a good way to be successful and give the people lots of confidence.
Do you have the available beef cattle in your area scouted out? Those good souls who grew that good beef should not feel put upon if you pass the offering plate for the benefit of your clan. And if it is a little dark and late at night when you go to get your good will offering, do NOT shoot a big one. Trying to wrestle a 1000 pound steer into a truck is a huge task for a dedicated group of men to do on a good day and you can forget about doing it at night and in the cold. It is an experience that will lead you to understand the meaning "dead weight." It's a big mistake, let me tell you. Cattle are used to being 'driven' and it is best to have them walk to the best place for you to load the truck, then shoot them. We have to use our brains.
If you see a store being looted and you want the goodies for yourself, go in the back door and use a shot gun to announce your presence, a couple times if necessary. This will allow the panic stricken looters to get out the front door and get to their vehicles and escape. Then you and your cohorts may scavenge as you please, making sure you get the choice merchandise. If you have animals or a shortage of medications, don't forget to pay a visit to your local farm store/feed and seed place. You should not run into much opposition there. Most folks will be looting big box stores like K-Mart and Walmart and Target and on and on. Pay a nice relaxing visit to the coop and stock up on your feed grains and animal medicines and other necessities. You should be able to pick and chose because the city boys will not think of it. Don't forget boots and heavy duty clothing while you are in the farm store. They carry the best. And the best is what you are looking for. Don't neglect to look for ammo at your feed and seed store. They might not offer guns but chances are good they will have shotgun shells and 22 cartridges. And some of them DO sell guns, so remember that if the SHTF, go to the place where you will still have a chance of scoring a good weapon. Take your friends with you. It is a nice thing to have someone covering your ass while you shop.
I just got a phone call that said that the Central and South American nations have created their own reserve currency. My informant said you can smell the fear on Wall Street. No matter what the fedgov does or Wall Street does, they cannot stop this kind of action. It is the beginning of the end. Say good night, America. You'll sleep by yourself, though. There is no verification of this new currency in the Mainstream Media, however. Thus, it may be a couple days before you hear about it. Maybe Drudge will give us a clue. But you got the word from a blogger! Stay alive.
