What CastIron said, I live in a township, we don’t have any authority (police) here just 12 gauge, 00 buck, takes care of everything and anyone. The local town has 2 full time and 2 part time police but they won’t come to a township call, we have to call the state police, in other words we protect ourselves. I only have 6 days of food so I’m good.

I don’t know about a failure of the food chain but China owns many large farms in the U.S.. Remember back in 2014, (Zerohedge.com) had an artical about China, they bought Smithfield foods, the largest pork producer/processor in the world. The facilities are in 26 states, they own 460 farms and has contracts with 2100 other farms. China can put a little heat on the food chain if they want to.

I guess China could hire all the Muslim refugees to work in these pork farms, it’ll give them a start in the U.S..

What Swamp said, we put our home in the kids name, with a memorandum of understanding that we live in it, keep it up and pay the taxes until we are both dead. We had an attorney do the paperwork, only cost me $150.00, that was done abut 5 year ago. Now the kids, after we’re dead can do what they want with it and not pay any inheritance taxes.

There are down falls to this method, if one of the kids gets in a bad accident and they are sued for big time money, well you know the rest. If they would separate from their spouse, not a problem, that was put in the memorandum, inlaw doesn’t count and they signed paperwork to that affect.

I’m not disagreeing with you CI, but what if you happen to get shot going into those abandon homes, stores. What if all your supplies are diminshed or die off or stolen and you have nothing for trade but PM’s. As far as change, to get a meal for me and family or get medical attention, etc., when I have nothing else to trade but PM’s, I’m not going to ask for change, I’m going to eat, get some medical supplies, ammo, etc., I’m not going to worry about change, it’s a tip for the ones that I get it from.

We have enough food, supplies, medical supplies, anti-biotics, clothing, coal, firewood, ammo, guns, seeds, chickens, cattle, etc. to last years, but I also have PM’s when it’s all gone or stolen. I may be wrong, but I’m trying to cover all bases.

If after a year and 90% of the population is dead (I’ve heard as high as 99%), then I’ll be one lonely rich guy, if I survive.

However, until things normalize enough after SHTF, where the survivors do not have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, I am charging five one oz gold coins for a dozen eggs.

Cast Iron, that is definately price gouging, I’ll only charge 1/10 oz of gold that comes to about 1.25/egg. With all seriousness, I never believed in PM’s because I thought I could be self sufficient, but after many discussions with some here on the APN (GUNNS was one of them), I changed my mind and now I have 1000’s of dollars in 1oz silver bars, rounds, etc., if anything my kids will end up with them and not have to pay the county, state, feds any inheritance taxes on it.

beprepared.com on 1 occasion refused to replace damaged goods they sent me. Well, I ordered once more, damaged again, they wouldn’t even return my calls or e-mails, so they’re done with me and about 10 other customers that I know. Their loss.

Honeyville, for me has a good product and I have never had a problem with them on anything that was damaged in shipment. I have ordered from other companies and never had a problem with them, only this one. The shipping is only 4.99 on anything you buy, whether it’s 1.00 or 1000.00, makes a big difference.

There are other good companies out there, you just have to check them out. But remember, you only get what you pay for.

It’s only pricey if you can’t afford it, like I said you get what you pay for.

Yes, fish anti-biotics can be used in an emergency situation, when medical help cannot be found. But, you need to read up on the doseages and what they are used for. I have purchased fish anti-biotics, amoxicillin, ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, clindamycin, metronidazole, sulfa drugs and others.

A good book to invest in is the survival medicine handbook, it’s advertised on this website, very good book. Also you can ask questions to doctor bones and nurse amy (doom and bloom medical). Check the board index. Good luck.

They also don’t like mixed people which means they wouldn’t like me since Im mixed, Im half white half asian. So to all minorities on this forum my advice is to be on the alert and to train in self defense which includes the use of firearms. This would include me since Im half minority. As a matter of fact Im not sure about this but the klan might especially hate people who are mixed such as myself. Here is a news article on this.

Photon, the klan has been on its way out for years. They claim to be white supremacist but they hate catholics, woman, people with authority, etc., they hate everybody that doesn’t believe in their views. About 30 years ago, the klan had a ralley in a small farming town of about 150 people, about 500 people showed up with shotguns, rifles, pistols, baseball bats and the Amish showed up with their pitchforks. Needless to say, they didn’t get out of their vehicles to hold their ralley.

I will only add, in this scenario, it is nation wide, it impacts all aspects of life, i.e. Wall-Mart, McDonalds/Starbucks et all no longer function.

Public utilities are questionable at best.

The gas pumps may or may not work.

There are people actively shooting at you.

CI, it may be nation wide, but it may/may not affect me that much, Wal-Marts are 15 miles from me and only go there once every couple of months, McD’s/Starbucks (what’s that) cause we don’t got them where I live unless you want to travel 15/20 miles to get there and I refuse to pay the price of a burger/coffee that’s 2,3, 4 bucks when I can do it for .50 cents myself.

Public utilities, I got solar panels to do the bacic’s and gas, wood, coal stoves to cook and heat.

People shooting at me, yes I could be shot or family members/friends being shot, but I won’t give up until dead. I think most American people will do the same and the demogods will end up in the grave or bleed very badly. Most, if not all these demogods wouldn’t know how to start a fire to keep warm/cook, know how to load/aim a weapon if they got one, know how to skin an animal for it’s food and how to tan a hide to keep warm, and the list goes on. Most city foke (ny, la, san fran, etc., don’t even know how to drive), they take public trans. They will be gone in a few days after it happens.

CI, I live in a very rural area and DJT won PA and everybody around me voted for DJT (except my wife), so I’d almost have to say I’d defend myself and not just the states DJT won. So, I have enough food to last a couple of years, 10’s of thousands of ammo and will be ok for some time. Anyone voting the other way and wanting to cause harm to me, my family or property, well, will pay the price.

Back in the late 70’s, the KKK was to hold a ralley about 4 miles from where I live in a small farming community (population of about 100 to 150), everyone from the surrounding small towns and townships (including the Amish) came to greet them. The KKK were greeted with rifles, shotguns, pistols, pitchforks, etc.. The KKK never got out of their vehicles, even with the county sheriff escorts.

Small areas do stick together, even if it’s another small community or township.

All the government/police, have to do is start doing their job, arresting the (Censored word. I’m a Potty mouth)/bastards that are cousing the riots/property damage and it would soon stop, but we still live in a PC world.
