20 Things You Will Need To Survive When The Economy Collapses And The Next Great Depression Begins

(This is a guest post from The Economic Collapse Blog.)
Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes.
Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wal-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that. Already the U.S. economy is starting to stumble about like a drunken frat boy. All it would take for the entire U.S. to resemble New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina would be for a major war, a terror attack, a deadly pandemic or a massive natural disaster to strike at just the right time and push the teetering U.S. economy over the edge. So just how would you survive if you suddenly could not rely on the huge international corporate giants to feed, clothe and supply you and your family? Do you have a plan?
Are you prepared?

Already covered, and adding more to sustain it all the time...
“Preparedness and Perseverance will triumph over Paranoia and Procrastination everytime...” — (me, 1985)
It always bothered me in “Road Warrior” when Max’s dog got killed...
Survival/Preparedness ping! Don’t miss this one!
This is why Obama and Pelosi need to pass another ‘stimulus’ bill fast!
"You said nothing bad ever happened to you."
Slack, to Riley, in Land of the Dead
...most of us have the basics of bullets, beans and bandaids...so I rank community #1....you need at least 6 others to share 24 hr pickett guard duty...there will be wolf packs of looters...remember this: even a soccer mom will kill you to get food for her children.
Stock up. Arm up. Load up. Man up.
I read the article. That is not preparing for a depression, that is preparing for the end of civilization like in that movie “The Postman”.
BTW : when we stock up all that food, water, boots and batteries and move in that log cabin, How will we check on what Obama is doing on FR with no internet and FNC with no cable TV?
I think we’ve been in the Great Depression 2 for a while and it’s already The End of the World as We Know It. I don’t foresee life returning to the way it was any time soon, possibly never.
I have plenty of vegetable seeds. I even have a deep well with a hand pump. I have 22 hens and one gay rooster (useless for propagation). I have 4 horses, 1 saddle and 2 donkeys, one donkey trained to carry a pack. I have a 4 acre ‘lake’ loaded with fish. Plenty of wild berries, several wild plums trees.
I have 10 acres of woods, plenty of firewood. But I can’t imagine cutting up wood without a chain saw.
I imagine I could survive...but it would certainly take some major rethinking and more effort than I can imagine.
But...I come from pioneer stock and am hopeful that particular DNA would kick in.
“Supply of hard currency (silver, gold, etc.)”
....I do this two ways:
gold coins....to defend wealth
junk silver coins...for barter
at the rate we’re going, paper money will soon be used for toilet paper.
It bothered me in "One Second After" when the dog was eaten.
The idiots still have cable to let the regime get the message out. Fox/Saudia is only slightly better than the others.
Any article that leaves out guns and ammo is useless.
