    Thumbs up stocking up

    • Alcohol that will stay good for a long time.
    • Cigars, cigarettes, tobacco products, etc.
    • Drugs. Might want to keep it to the legal kind, so as not to provide anyone with an excuse.

    FOOD. If you have nothing to eat you will not last very long. Some stores are already rationing certain items and the prices are going out the roof.

    when grocery shopping,look for stuff that will keep for a long time(i.e.dry beans,rice,pasta) and stuff that's cheap.Look at things you may not normally buy and see if it's cheaper.For instance,we all know how much whole turkey is around the holidaysa,but other times of year,turkey wings,thighs,and legs can possibly be as low,per pound,as chicken,and in some cases even less.Also,check the 'reduced for quick sale' section of the meat area.Just be sure to look at the date.if you see a big london broil that is all grayish brown and doesn't look that appealing,but has not expired,pick it up and give it a whiff.We all know what spoiled meat smells like.If it doesn't smell spoiled,get it and you can eat off of it for a couple of days,depending on how many people you are feeding.If the beef is a little grayis,but doean't smell bad,it's just aged,and,in truth,aged meat tastes better anyway.Now,it will smell different than perfect looking fresh meat,but if it is spoiled,you won't wonder,you'll know.
    DISCLAIMER:I am not an expert on anything.You assume all risk when purchasing 'aged' meats.

    Never knew I was a cult member before--oh well, I'm in with a lot of good people . . . Label me what you want, I'm providing for the needs of my family.

    And Hey brainchild, don't go telling everyone about how good the reduced for quick sale meats are!!! That was my secret! Now they'll be buying them before I can get to them--hate when I get there and the reduced bin is cleaned out! (Better flavor, half the cost.)

  5. The only real threat is them to us. Keep up the good work mom.

    As food goes, you can live on a few gallons of protein powder mixed with some powdered oats for quite a long time. Mixing it with water is recommended, but it's not required. You can even put beans and rice in a coffee grinder (or just grind it up by hand) and live on that too. That way it takes up less room, and doesn't require any cooking. In survival situations, most people who raid stores will go for the prepared foods or things that are easy to make. They'll probably pass right over the beans and rice, which are your best bet for a long-term source of energy. Also, honey will stay good for an indefinite period of time if kept in a cool dry area, and is a highly compact form of energy.

    I suppose it might be helpful to have junk food around as well as a form of currency, but it will go bad relatively quickly. I don't eat junk food, so I'd have to give this away before it expires. Some types of liquor will keep for 10+ years, which is helpful if you're waiting for something bad to happen. Soldiers can almost universally be bribed with alcohol, and probably tobacco to a lesser extent. It's kind of a tossup as to whether they like twinkies or not.

    I haven't heard about stores rationing anything though. Are they specific items? Some places will do that for produce that is out of season.

    toreskha, I think it was some Sams club, some Coscos and some Wal-Marts. Rice was one of the items but I think I read there were some others also.

    Well, that's weird. Fuel costs are driving up the prices of food, but rationing seems a bit extreme.

    I heard recently that the price of rice is pretty high, and Thailand is trying to start an economic organization for rice-producing countries.

    Anyway, we can all save money by eating less, and there's nothing like growing your own.

    Angry Why would they think that we are terrorists?

    Well, one reason might be that we have boneheads like this guy on our forum. Excuse me, scumdad, but the constitution is the antithesis of your precious "88" (stands for Heil Hitler) brand of fascism. Racist jerks like you are the reason that normal gun owners (like I believe the majority of those on this forum) are often targeted with labels like "terrorist". Well, guess what, Neo Nazi white supremacist ARE terrorist. Look up the definition. Need I tell you what you can do with your Iron Cross?

    To everyone else, I am sorry for posting this in the public forum, but it needs to be said. If more Muslims were to stand up and denounce groups like Al Qaida, we would all be better for it. Well, here is my version.

    Ditto that. We don't need to give the Obamans any rhetorical ammunition to lump us in with white supremacist ilk. Also, most people probably have some vested personal and business relationships that they're interested in maintaining, which the neo-Nazi agenda would seek to break. I would be homeless, unemployed and without a lot of friends by going along with a crazy segregationist plan - and for apparently no benefit.

    It was over a rice failure overseas and people buying large amounts to ship out of the country.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears
