A record number of Americans 46.7 million used food stamps in the month of June, and tens of millions more are directly in the sights of an economy spiraling uncontrollably into collapse.
Food prices have risen 175% since they year 2000 and analysts estimate that this past summers drought will force them even higher as high as 30% by the middle of next year. On top of that weve got the Federal Reserve committing some $80 billion a month in continued monetary easing (printing). There is only one direction for food prices to go, and thats up.
There is no way out, despite what politicians and experts tell us or what many Americans want to believe. This ends with millions of Americans starving in the streets. There can be no other result. Either the nutritional assistance programs come to a screeching halt because there is no credit funding left for the county as a whole, or prices rise exponentially to the point that $29 will buy maybe a gallon of milk or less.
This is our future. You can bet on it.
And the way to bet on it is to stock up on essential commodities like rice, beans, wheat, dry milk, and corn now , before things get so bad that they are no longer manageable.

My canner, new vacuum sealer and the dehydrator will all be going non stop for the foreseeable future.
I just bought 40 pounds of pintos, 30 pounds of rice, 10 pounds of grits, 3 pounds of oatmeal, and 20 pounds of potatoes, but none of it was for prepper stuff.
“This ends with millions of Americans starving in the streets....”
Another success story...brought to you and me by Marx, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Ayers, Dohrn and Obama..
sheesh..sounds like a law firm!!
Now all Americans will get a taste of what it is like to live in Zimbabwe, courtesy of obama and co. To all of the preppers out there, hide your stashes well, lest you will be arrested for hoarding, and sent to a government work camp.
There aren't enough cops to do that. Anyone that was awake during the 20th century knows not to go quietly.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."

PING to yet another discussion we’ve had.
I just heard about this site on a local Talk Radio program:
just because we're prepared doesn't mean we won't be the victims of mobs of feral so called humans..
as I see it, families...extended families...must band together, maybe in one house, hopefully with garden space and some wood to burn, and a well....
when I prep, that's what I'm thinking about....protecting my family, most who are bammey fools...
Thanks for the quote. I was looking for it the other day.
You are most welcome. It lives on my FR profile page, along with several others.
The thing these Keynsians seem to forget is that even their own theory holds that gummint subsidy pushes prices higher. So the more “stimulus” we get in the form of “assistance” that is actually “subsidy” that punishes us brutally. Thanks.
Oh, we could get out of this jam by ridding ourselves of all federal social spending. Meanwhile, we lower the tax burden, including eliminating FICA and Medicare taxes entirely, while working people give generously to charity, to ease the suffering.
But we won’t.
I've got some of those in my family too, and they can go down with the rest. They are never going to know what I have here. When the SHTF, they can go ask their hero for help, and yes that includes my own mother.
