Nope.

Anything that has to do with purchasing power online won’t exist in a SHTF scenario and most likely never will recover. The internet and all its data will never be the same if we go into a world wide recession or depression.

Louisiana Discussion, News and Weather • Re: Mayo Clinic to give preference to privately insured

March 20, 2017 Gunns 0

Many years ago I had this great Doctor. Thorough and precise and straight to the point. My wife didn’t care for him, he could be rough sometimes but he did say you can’t always be a gentle doctor and find the problem. He was very good. One day he pointed out to the Doctors only parking lot and asked what I saw.

I said I see a lot of BMW’s, Mercedes and a beat up Toyota. He said his was the Toyota and he couldn’t be my doctor any more. He lost his job. Seems the insurance companies were giving bonuses to doctors to NOT use ct scans and mri’s. He said you could make hundreds of thousands on bonuses. His problem was he never got bonuses. He said CT Scans at certain ages could save lives. I remember him telling me before that he spotted more tumors and problems from them way before they were problems.

Well he ended up in Rochester MN where Mayo is. He had a major run in with them. IBM ended up constructing his very own clinic and assigning all the IBM employees to his clinic. He specializes in preventing problems and IBM’s incidents to health insurance have dropped every year since he started. The man is a genius and really believes in helping.

Haven’t found anyone that cares as much since.

I don’t know what can be done about it. I can’t possibly afford creating 50+ bug out bags for my immediate family. I got 4 brothers and 3 sisters and they all have kids and those kids have kids. Love them all but I cannot prep for them. Some of them have said that famous line “I will just go to Gunns house”. My response is “don’t, I don’t want to shoot you”. They look at me beleaguered and stop talking to me for months, their so upset.

My son is not a prepper by any means. He does however have enough food in his apartment for over three months and he has a couple emergency bags depending on the season. That is only because I raised him with that in mind. Always told him to make sure he had food for few months in case of weather and to have a bag on him if the weather got to severe. So at least he can get to his apartment and he can bug out if he has to.

I also think we should have mandatory drug testing for welfare and anyone accused of attempting to attenuate a private citizens right to own firearms should be banned from all public service.

Perhaps the difference its that every decision or opinion I form is based on science and math, not on a feel-good mentality. From how I treat my child, to how I pay my bills, to how and why I prep for a disaster, it is all based on sound science and only science..

I think the problem in the divide between liberals and conservatives is that most of them base their opinions on other opinions.. most of them do not rationalize their opinions based on real information.

Too many people fail in critical thinking skills and let their feelings run their lives.

Well let me poke you in the eye with a stick then. LOL

I have no problems with Gays either. Just don’t think every TV show, Movie and now Disney remakes have to have same sex making out on them. For a small minority the queer Hollywood producers and writers are pushing it in our faces. That will backfire when SHTF.

As far as socialized health care that is for Socialist thinkers and drug testing is a violation of our Constitutional rights. Can’t see how someone says they base their decisions on science and math can be against the very principles of our Constitution. I can’t find it in the Constitution that says we need to socialize anything.

Again that is just free thinking on my part.

As Mollypup stated, both sides can be just as bad when caught up in the mob mentality.

As for Trump rallies or support? It seems there are Trump supporters who have grown tired of the Left and their protests.
On one hand that is their right, both the Left and the Right to protest or rally respectively.
On the other, is it adding anything constructive to the situation?
Probably not.

Loretta Lynch’s statement only exacerbates the problem.
And reaffirms my previous statement about both sides believing their cause is just and right.

Nothing good will come of this.

People said the same thing about civil rights movement at the time. Its only good now. In retrospect. But read through this thread, and you see what i mean by “out over our skis”. Other then the same black hood guys that show up a protests (who appear to be paid, bussed in, and could very well be paid by the right wing as early as Soros’ crowd) there hasn’t been any real violence. Protest, resistance, disruption at town halls, marches… OK, Democracy is advance science. It ain’t easy, and it takes work. But I see the same on Facebook i do here, all my conservative friends are batshit waiting for armed revolution ready to pull out their modern muskets and go to work, but i don’t see the left saying that. Just us. Folks need to keep prospective… “oh the left is just use they are losing control”. The same thing was said about the RNC not to long ago. Politics is an ebb and flow game. I’m betting we’re distracted with BS, while some real things are happening below the surface.

Just like Patriot radio on satellite radio has Mark, Rush, and the rest, there is a Progressive station down the dial. Both are WAY to the right/left of Fox or CNN. It just seems were so stuck in our own echo chambers we can’t hear each other anymore. THATS the true danger.

Granted, civil rights was a righteous cause but that’s not what this is about. She wants a violent uprising against a duly elected President and she will lie and distort facts to get that.

Also remember who this person is, she is the Attorney General who met with Bill Clinton in the middle of a DOJ investigation of Hillary Clinton.

Some say both sides are wrong. I am in the middle. I believe is some of what liberals believe and some of what conservatives believe.

That said, I believe this orchestrated hate, violence and riots on the left are truly evil. And I am an atheist. What bothers me when discussing this with a liberal as to what they believe is full of nonsense, lies, deceit and anger. They truly do not have a clue why they hate so much or what they believe to be true is so patently false you have to realize they are insane.

I can say unequivocally if a side must be picked I will pick the Trumpsters 100% of the time. If violence comes my way I will face it not with hate but with determination. Not with fear but with satisfaction. Not with spite but with ferocity. Not with hesitation but with all the overwhelming force I can muster from this old body.

Bread lasts a lot longer than 1 day. If Russian bread stales that fast then they do not know how to make bread.

1 Cup of water
2 tablespoons of oil or butter
1 egg

2 tablespoons of brown sugar or honey or molasses
3 tablespoons of freeze dried butter milk
1.5 teaspoons of salt
2.5 cups of good whole white bread flour
.5 cups of good whole wheat bread flour

1 tablespoon of yeast

I use this recipe or variations of it for both the bread machine, which I really really like or by hand. I just made a loaf yesterday and will eat it over the next few days.

Well lets put that number into perspective.

“As of 2014, in the United States, 8 billion chickens are consumed per year, which translates to 21,917,808 chickens per day. Americans eat 25 billion chicken wings per year, with 1.25 billion, or 100 million pounds, eaten during the Super Bowl weekend alone.”

So 73,500 would be .3% of daily consumption. Or .009% per year. I would be worried if it were around a few million birds.

BS I repeat BS. This is Socialist Progressive nonsense. This planet can grow more food then the human population can consume. We grow more then enough food to sustain over 10 billion people. With improvements already being researched we could grow food for 20 billion easily.

Now just how delicate that balance is, is another discussion. Like stated previously, disruption to the fuel supply would curb that significantly. Our problems are not how we produce our food, its the people.

Funny story…
The wife and I have been prepping for the past two months.. we’re doing good.. have about 1000 lbs of food saved for the two of us + child.. The wife is kind of ho-hum about the whole thing… she goes along with it but its more of a “I support you” type of thing and she has this attitude of “well, we’re going to use it anyhow eventually so go ahead and buy it”.. of course this is about food storage stuff..
Then I gave her the book to read.. she got to the big gun fight.. comes into the room and says “We need more ammo.. more guns.. I need one of those assault rifles!” LOL Ya..we’re getting there…

Sort of the same thing happened to me. My wife of nearly 39 years never once shot a hand gun or rifle or shotgun and had no interest what so ever. 7 months or so she pauses the DVR looks at me and says “I want to buy my own hand gun and get my CCL”. I thought “who the heck is this woman?”. We both have our licenses and she has a nice handgun she practices with.

https://providentliving.com/preparednes … /foodcalc/

Typed in 52 weeks for 3 adults and got some crazy numbers..

Can someone take a look?
1200 lbs grain
180 lbs legumes
90 lbs dairy
180 lbs of sugar :?
18 lbs salt (that one I get)
90 lbs of fats

1200 lbs of grain? WHAT?? That works out to just over a pound of grain per person per day..

???? … 1200lbs = 23lb per week = 7.6lbs per person per week = roughly 1lb per day

That’s about 1,500 calories. Plus sugar is for making it all taste better.
