OK call me a Tin Foil hat wearer, but there's way to much such stockpiling being done by various government entities, entities of which many regard preppers as eccentric at best and enemies of the government at worse to be happenstance.

It is an odd happenstance.

I actually think that is appropriate for that area and those conditions. General welfare is a legitimate function of gooberment. It's only a week's worth of food (sorta food in re: MREs).

I hope they rotate the food, unlike the Civil Defense food from the 50's and 60's that just wasted.

Who decides when, where, and to whom it gets distributed?

Starting years ago, NEAR telescopes were quickly and quietly installed all over the planet.

Then, massive amounts of seed stock were stored away in cold vaults in the Arctic Circle.

The government clerks want hollow point bullets on their ammo.

Stores now primarily use the JUST ON TIME inventory system, so there are no large inventories to depend on should the general public need food. Stores will run out in 3 days. (The next Revolution is 3 Missed Meals Away)

A new underground city (for the ‘chosen’ people) has been built in the United States, stockpiled with food and water.

We are under the THREAT (having been made very recently) of nuclear, biological and chemical warfare in lands we have military stationed.

Nothing to see here, just move along.

I had an odd thought.

Perhaps the asteroid which is supposed to miss us next year....isn’t really supposed to miss us.

“...there’s way to much such stockpiling being done by various government entities, entities of which many regard preppers as eccentric at best and enemies of the government at worse to be happenstance.”

You’re right. They want rid of us so we won’t be around but they will. “They” would be government entities that are “needed” to keep people in line and preppers don’t fit that mold. And, gasp!, preppers have guns and officials really don’t like that. Preppers tend to think for themselves and that is also not popular with officials.

The state plans two food stockpiles in or near Fairbanks and Anchorage, two cities that also have military bases.

Where there just HAPPEN to be military bases...

Construction on the two storage facilities will begin this fall, and the first food deliveries are targeted for December. The goal is to have enough food to feed 40,000 people for up to a week

I got a $10 bill that says the stockpiles are not for the masses.

I live in Alaska and especially during the winter the state is vulnerable to having a fresh food supply line disconnected.

Most of us in rual Alaska normally stockpile in the summer for the long winter. Soon when the Permanent Fund checks are doled out the smart ones swoop down on Costco and nuy in bulk, my wife works at a food warehouse just so she has an inside track on whats up and she gets dented but salvageable items every day, and my self when our local Walmart for the first time ever started to carry the one gallon cans of the Augason Farms dehydrated foods I bought about 80 cans. And thats not all, I have extra water though we have a well and a manual pump.

Alaska has told Obama to go pound sand on many different issues and its probably conceivable that the elected officials might consider doing something ahead of time just in case Obama decided to punish states that defy his pogroms, if there was any tin foil hat to wear I would wear that one.

Bottom line is this, Alaskans know how to survive and have an inner feeling on what to do if they get a gut feeling something is going to happen.

Right there with you Kartographer. Based on the actions of the powers that be, they are expecting something nasty and soon.
