    Wink Are feds stockpiling survival food?

    Don't worry, be happy

    What does the government really know that they are not telling us.? Could it be things are a lot worse than we are told?

    Are feds stockpiling survival food?

    It's always a good idea to have a supply of food just in case, but this sounds more like unsupported sensationalism than anything else.

    The main person who seems to be driving the "government is buying all the food" angle in this article is one source - and he owns a company that sells it. He has a definite financial stake in getting people to buy more of this type of food from him.

    "We don't have shelters that [are being] stocked with food. We're not doing this for the public. My only conclusion is that they're stocking up for themselves," he said of government officials.
    What officials exactly? Who? Middle management at FEMA? This is massive speculation.

    Gov. stores milk and cheese always. The rest would not be for us. Time is getting short.

    I said it's good to prep. But, I think the guy in that article was just talking to strum up business.

    The best thing is to save up regular things that will last a while, but you can use and rotate out. Honey doesn't spoil under normal conditions, and most dried fruit lasts a long time. Soy or whey powder has a long shelf life too.

    The money used to buy things like canned butter ($5/can!) could be more usefully put into something more practical like raisins or protein. If the expensive canned butter ever gets near its expiration date...well...I dunno, there's just something disgusting about butter in a can. It's not meant to be eaten that way.

    Store base crops like soybeans, peanuts, corn, rice, etc. You can make anything out of those with a makeshift lab. You can eat them as-is, make milk, butter, tofu, oil, a million different types of chemicals, or burn it as fuel. Rice powder can be used to make a bomb in a vapor mix.

    Maybe even store crude oil, and you can trade it by the vial.

    yeah, they are...

    here's why: US Navy prepares for conflict in Gulf - Politics & Economics - ArabianBusiness.com

    apparently everybody knows we are coming except us. this whole thing could get completely out of hand quickly. and by the way, the russkies have already said they will join in on this one.

    You know we have to fight in Iran and perhaps a few more places. We have not as yet got all of or our troops completely out of the U.S. and spread all over the world. We need to make sure we have plenty of troops every where in the world except right here in case we need them. Makes perfect sense to me. Not.

    indeed. The Cold War will not be cold much longer. anyone who tinks it was really ever over only decieves themselves.

  11. The idea of food does deserve more attention. Civil service has closed down the area due to hurricaine concerns in the past. The local stores had empty shelves before I could get off from work. Subtract all the food stuffs that quickly spoil without electricity, the lack of daily delivery due to any upset, and the panic buying any major event would entail. Anyone know a good survival site?
