YUP,,, all this makes me want to have this country end up more like Eorupe every day,,,,, NOT!!!!!
Spend your bucks on supplys and trade goods, that is what it will take to weather the storm. Screw investments, even though that's what's needed to turn the economy around now. Stocks and bonds ain't going to be worth shit when it all falls apart, just paper, just like dollar bills.
I try to stock up a little bit more each shopping trip to stay ahead of the game and I hope things don't fall completly apart, but I'm not confident enough of that not to stock up some. Not going to go all "super prepper " survivalist, build a bunker,,, type,, on ya here, just getting a bit better prepared for adversitys/emergencys,,, might be a good call right now,,, I'm thinking. Ireane taught me that even though I didn't get hurt here, I helped out many others that got hit really hard and are still having it rough this far down the road because they hadden't planned ahead for anything. I just don't want to be one of them if shit happens again down the raod.
I know a few of you have tried the Wise dehydrated stuff out, and I've been thinking of getting 2-3 60 serving buckets of it for stock, seems to me to be a prudent thing to do at this juncture. What you folks think?? I've heard it's not as good as the Mt. House,,, but that stuff is spendy now, actually it has been for a while now. Is the Wise really worth the investment and is it decent enough tasting so I can use it when go camping/hiking ect?? I know if the SHTF senario strikes,, garbage would taste gourmay, but I'd like to use it for other uses and just wondered how it was over all.
