Do It Now – Wait or Die
by Holly Deyo
Stan and I augmented our food supplies this week after thinking we were finished. Finito. Put to bed. Done.
Rethink... Famine is on the horizon and seeing the highest food prices in history should zap your sleepy brain cells. This disaster is propelled by these simultaneous factors:
most importantly, unprecedented Midwest drought and scalding-hot temperatures
crops dying in other world food-producing regions
growing global demand for high quality food
expanding global population
economic collapse in progress and,
persistent demand for ethanol-enhanced fuels.
This prep warning is not limited to food. Not by a long shot.
DYING BY SLOW DANCE
Before us is the perfect combination for slow death and civil war. Nothing propels society into chaos like seeing children starve and wanting basic necessities. Furthermore, what faces Americans has never been experienced, not by this generation. Not ever. Not in the Great Depression. Not during the Civil War.
These dramas have always been "over there", like in Africa or India.
Photo: In March 1993, photographer Kevin Carter made a trip to southern Sudan, where he took now iconic photo of a vulture preying upon an emaciated Sudanese toddler near the village of Ayod. Carter said he waited about 20 minutes, hoping that the vulture would spread its wings. It didn’t. Carter snapped the haunting photograph and chased the vulture away.
Can you imagine this being your child?
Certainly not in our cushy life, but it is coming, rearing its ugly putrid head. We Americans easily push those countries' hard times to the back of our minds. Best forgotten. It doesn't fit with boating, golf, shopping, reality TV, vacations, backyard parties, good times.
How will you feel when this affects your children, your lifestyle?
Over the decades we've become fat, lazy, complacent, stupid, arrogant, ignorant. It can't happen here, we think. WRONG! Lord, help us! It is happening now on our dirt. Can't you see this? Did you know that the poorest 5% of Americans are richer than nearly 70% of the rest of the world? That is an astonishing statement. No wonder we are blind. Soon 'need' will pound on your door. How you answer in your heart of hearts, in your private, most honest moments, depends on your personal courage, your faith in God, and on how you've personally prepared. For many, it will be easier to strap on those blinders again and let the chips fall. God help you.
WAKE UP, STAND UP, "GROW A SET"
While Stan and I aren't in the commodities or precious metals business, one has only to look at timely, pertinent news to set your hair on fire. Feel the burn? This Fox News item (a pretty 'happy times' venue) Why We Are on the Brink of the Greatest Depression of All Time, certainly tugged at my smallest hairs and grew mountain-sized goosebumps in unlikely places.
Because of this and other timely articles on drought, disaster and a dying economy, we practice what we preach for preparedness and brought in more food supplies. For those in power thinking to confiscate same, peddle your intentions elsewhere as they are not stored at home, nor will you find them. That's asking for (Executive Order 12919) formerly 10998 to visit your door and make your life misery.
For those so inclined to buy more food, two of our favorites suppliers, Freeze Dry Guy and Honeyville Grains, are highly recommended. One we've been friends with the business owner for over 7 years and he is the real deal. The other is a Mormon company for which we have the highest regard. Both company's products are stellar, reputable and of the highest quality...
