    Coming To America: The Hoarding Begins: Greeks Rush To Grocery Stores, Gas Stations and ATMs In Anticipation of Collapse

    What happens when your country collapses to such an extent that it can no longer pay its debts, your banking system is bankrupt and the populace loses confidence in its government’s ability to mitigate the crisis?

    The events taking place in Greece provide some insight and are a harbinger of things to come in America.

    It was a seemingly normal Sunday — except it was anything but normal.

    For many people in Athens, it was time to prepare for an approaching storm. A short walk from Plaka, a line of people waited to withdraw cash from an A.T.M., hours before the official announcement that banks would be closed starting on Monday. Some bank machines in central Athens had run out of money or were out of service, as screens blamed “technical difficulties.”

    Elsewhere, some people had started hoarding gasoline and groceries. “We don’t know what the new day will bring,” said Katerina Vorreadi, who was among a group of retirees waiting in line outside the National Bank of Greece on Saturday night.

    Uncertainty breeds panic and if there’s anything that will get people lining up at local venues that provide essential services like money exchange and foodstuffs, it’s the fear of not being able to acquire those items when they’re needed most.

    And while some will argue that America is an advanced economy and Greece is not even on the same playing field, the fact is that as a country we are much worse off. In a country where nearly 100 million people are dependent on government monthly government benefits just to survive, even a short-term financial shock could lead to widespread panic.

    But how likely is such an event?

    Well, according to Representative Brad Sherman, during the height of the 2008 crisis Congress was told that if taxpayer funds weren’t used to bail out the system to the tune of trillions of dollars that we would literally have tanks patrolling the streets of America.

    Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday, that the sky would fall, the market would drop two or three thousands points the first day, another couple thousand the second day, and a few members were even told that there would be martial law in America if we voted no.

    House Representative Brad Sherman (D-California)
    Debate on the House Floor, October 2, 2008

    It was a testament to just how bad things were and how much worse they could have gotten. But more importantly, it shows just how close to the brink of total collapse our nation was… and still remains.

    Just this week the Bank of International Settlements – essentially the central bank for the world’s central banks – said that governments and banks will be unable to fight the next financial crisis because they used up their ammunition fighting the last one.

    Keep in mind that these are the people that essentially control the monetary policy of the entire world. And they just said that once the next set of dominoes starts tipping over they aren’t going to be able to stop it.

    So the reality of the situation is that not only is this contagion soon to reach America, there will be no stopping it when it does.

    In his latest article Michael Snyder of End of the American Dream warns that Americans are woefully unprepared for such a scenario.

    While over 70% of people fear an economic crisis is coming, only about 3% of Americans have actually taken steps to prepare for it.

    Should America be faced with the same situation as Greece, we can fully expect similar results here.

    greece-atms(Pictured: Greeks line up at ATMs. Withdrawal limits were set to about $75 per day)

    People will rush ATM’s in the hopes of getting cash, but like Greece, they’ll be met with restrictions allowing them to withdraw just $75 a day.

    They’ll make their way to grocery stores hoping to buy a food supply for a week or two while things settle down, but they’ll be met with long lines and empty shelves, much like we’ve seen during previous emergencies.

    greece-shelves(Greek grocery stores quickly running out of food. Picture via Zero Hedge)

    And, just as we saw in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, within 72 hours of a destabilization of our systems of commerce people will be facing starvation and supply shortages.

    Tess Pennington, author of The Prepper’s Blueprint, explains the four stages of a breakdown and notes that by day three, things get very dangerous:

    Multiple factors contribute to societal breakdowns including failure of adequate government response, population density, citizens taking advantage of the grid being down and overwhelmed emergency response teams.

    3-5 days following a disaster is the bewitching hour. During this short amount of time, the population slowly becomes a powder keg full of angry, desperate citizens. A good example is the chaos that ensued in New Orleans following the absence of action from the local government or a timely effective federal response in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In such troubled times, people were forced to fend for themselves and their families, by any means necessary. This timeline of Hurricane Katrina effectively illustrates “the breakdown,” and within three days, the citizens of New Orleans descended into anarchy, looting and murder (Source).

    If this scenario isn’t bad enough, at the end of this time frame, there will be an increase in illnesses due to cramped living quarters from emergency shelters, sanitation-related illness,compromised water sources and exposure to natural elements. In the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, sanitation- related epidemics became a large concern for the disaster victims. In fact, the outbreak erupted into the world’s largest cholera epidemic despite a huge international mobilization still dealing with the effects of the Jan. 12, 2010, earthquake.

    We can pretend like everything is peachy and that happy times are back again. But even a precursory look at what’s happening around the world suggests that the global economy is derailing. Greece has essentially collapsed (for the fourth time in a decade) and China’s stock markets are in the midst of detonating.

    The situation remains fluid, but dire, because if China and Europe go, guess who’s next?

    Americans aren’t ready for it. As Michael Snyder notes in his aforementioned article, most people don’t have any emergency cash, or even a three day supply of food on hand in case something happens.

    Now, consider what happens when banks shut their doors for a week like they have done in Greece. Next, imagine a scenario where confidence in the U.S. dollar is lost and foreign creditors pull out.

    The result is an intense, almost immediate collapse of the system as we have come to know it. When the debt bubble bursts, notes analyst Greg Mannarino, millions of people could die:

    Millions upon millions of people are going to die on a world-wide scale when the debt bubble bursts. And I’m saying when not if…

    When resources become more and more scarce we’re going to see countries at war with each other. People will be scrambling… in a worst case scenario… doing everything that they can to survive… to provide for their family and for themselves.

    We could be wrong, of course. But what if we’re not?

        Well folks,

        I’m off to my great adventure. Vegas, Death Valley, Zion, Bryce, the Grand Canyon, Monuments Valley. You can bet your ass I’m not going in flip flops. I will be training hard.

        Hope the collapse doesn’t spread here while I’m away from my preps.

        But, SHTF don’t care if you weren’t ready.

        Happy trails.

          • Wilson says:

            “We could be wrong, of course. But what if we’re not?”

            If you are wrong and there is no major collapse or SHTF event the people who have taken their preparedness seriously will just have an easier time getting through life debt free, with acquired skills, some extra cash on hand, and hopefully a more independent (of the guvment) way of life. Not bad way to live. Not bad at all.

        • eppe says:

          Acid, have a great time, take lots of pics…

          Have not had a vacation in years, enjoy it while you are young, because it is a bitch getting old…

          Bless all here…

          • Wilson says:

            Heck some say I’m old and I just finished 5 weeks and 5,157.2 miles of Capitol Reef, Great Basin, Crater Lake, Redwoods, Fort Clatsop, Astoria Column (a monument to a condom is what it looks like right now), Olympic and Rainier. I was a tad concerned things might dicey whilst I was travelling. But there is more to life than dread, fear, worry, and being miserable. It wasn’t a bitch at all. What did I miss? gays can get married and illegals can vote. What’s to worry?

            “and within three days, the citizens of New Orleans descended into anarchy, looting and murder”

            That could’ve read: “and within three days, the POLICE of New Orleans descended into anarchy, looting and murder.”

            They left looters alone (unless they were competing for the same loot) and shot at hungry people trying to flee the area for safer ground.

            They went into untouched parts of the city and disarmed honest citizens who were trying to protect their property.

            The cops had guns—most of the people did not.

            That’s the truth about Katrina that most people avoid telling.

            • Hugh Janus says:

              That and the fact that N.E. is a ‘diverse’ city.

            • Peaches57 says:

              As a member of the National Emergency Management group, I can tell you that there is a whole book’s worth of stories that were not told. Families abandoning their elderly in the hopes that they would die in the flood zones. Looters who went house to house, street to street in the French Quarter, stealing whatever was unguarded and assaulting anyone who guarded their property – even tho the French Quarter was basically untouched by floodwaters. Gangs invading the hospital, holding those on life support at gunpoint, demanding drugs from doctors and nurses who worked 3 straight weeks as the floodwaters rose – while the National Guard surrounded the city and denied doctors, nurses, and medical supply trucks entrance. Nurses in nursing homes who, left to their own devices, literally had to decide who would live and who would have to die. Rapes and murders went unreported, while hundreds of bodies floated for days, or were left rotting wherever the water left them. Many were never identified or claimed. FEMA personnel who came down to “assess the damage” and bought starving and homeless teenage hookers for the night. Buses from Chicago and New York that started coming down, fully loaded with looters and gang members, a full 2 days before Katrina hit, who stayed to increase the carnage. I still get goose bumps talking about it. It will happen – and much worse – if the S REALLY HTF.

        • Braveheart says:

          Acid, I’ll wish you good luck out there if you’re staying off the internet for the duration of your trip. [JUST KIDDING] Acid, seriously, have a great time and be extra careful out there. This old fart really means it.

        • smokey says:

          Keep hydrated.

        • NorthGeorgiaIdiotsCousin says:

          AE why don’t you drop off your preps here in North Georgia and we’ll store them with the stuff CUZ has stored, and if the SHTF you can boogie on back here and share supplies with Cuz and y’all can bunk in the hay loft together. Preppers stick together, right Cuz!

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        The Hoarding begins? Don’t know about you all but I’ll be damned if I’m going to be late for this party!

        • BigB says:

          Sunday I was fortunate to be able to purchase 50 more cans of vegetables, 50 more cans of assorted fruit, and for the first time to add to my preps 50 assorted deserts. Dollar Tree is hard to beat for prepping. Now I just got to find room to put all of it with the other stuff.

          Some one should do an article on storage of preps. I would like to buy an old U-Haul truck, medium size, that I could tow my travel trailer with. Just don’t have any place to park it. That would make one hell of a bug out package. As it is there is no way if I had to bug out that I could get everything into the back of my F150. Fuel, propane, food crates, hunting and fishing gear etc. It is not all going to fit.

          BigB

            Survial life . Com has done several articles on the subject some are repetitive but good info none the less

          • alaskan says:

            Be careful of the dollar tree cans, they do tend to spring leaks after about a year. Also, in order to stage my preps, I have rented small storage units in towns where I have relatives, and given them authorization to access the units “in case of my death”, without telling them what’s in the units-I simply say I am planning on retiring near there shortly and am slowly moving my NON essential household goods over there. What’s in the units are sealed dark colored roughneck latching totes, sealed with duct tape and spread with peppermint oil—-NOT peppermint extract, that stuffs for flavoring, but actual really smelly peppermint oil which rodents hate and will avoid. In the totes I have vacuum sealed dry goods like pasta, rice, biscuit mix, soup beans, oatmeal, cans of soups and spam and chicken, dried fruits, toilet paper, blankets, cooking pots, BOOTS AND COATS in different sizes, seeds, water purification tablets and a couple big jugs of water, weapons (but not the “good” ones). The totes are all clearly labeled on the outside (so as to be visible to anyone looking in), as “Grandmas nightgowns”, “Grandmas Knicknacks”, “Grandpas old books” etc, anything fairly innocuous that would not incite curiosity. And on the top inside each tote I actually put a layer of nightgowns, books, knickknacks, hoping anyone in a rush will open it and move on thinking the top layer goes all the way to the bottom. Also, even a small vehicle can tow a smaller uhaul or open trailer loaded to the gills. Don’t forget the extra gas cans, and do NOT stop once you get goin–hopefully we will get out early enough to avoid being bandidoed along the way.

          • In my small town there is a guy who sells deuce and deuce 1/2. Hubby says they can run on used motor oil if need be. I remember seeing that on doomsday preppers as well. Just a thought.

          • Texasprepper says:

            Sounds like you and I are in the same boat. I have a room and garage full of preps, a travel trailer if leaving is necessary, even bought a 1 ton diesel truck to haul everything. Added a 92 gallon diesel tank to extend my range but don’t have enough room for all the preps even if I stacked my travel trailer full. Have 2 more trucks i could pack up, but they don’t have extra tanks to extend their range. I too am looking for a box truck or old school bus. Seems the more ready I think I am, the more I realize I need. One thing I’ve learned, you can’t be ready for everything and prepositioning preps is very important if possible.

            • Braveheart says:

              Txprepper, in 3 weeks I make another supply run to my cousin’s BOL. 80% of my preps are already in a storage building on the property. I’m taking what I’ve bought over the past couple of months on this run. When it’s finally time for me to bugout, what little I’ll have left I can put in the truck in just minutes and be on my way. I first got this arrangement with my cousin 2 years ago in April and have made numerous trips there hauling supplies. Once I make the final trip, that’s the bugout, then I’m bugging in. No running away from the BOL for me. I’m not moving around like a damn gypsy. The BOL is where I’ll make my stand.

        • Brooksie says:

          I’m with ya. I need a big screen TV and a carton of Kools!

        • Plan twice, prep once says:

          A lot of theater going on over Greece.

          People hoarding gasoline, ok you fill your car and you fill a can or two that are in the garage! This is hoarding?

          There is nothing secret about Greece’s financial problems. Wall Street should have this whole mess priced in, if there is financial contagion, it’s all a fraud, more show!

          Stores running out of food, this happens where I live every time they predict a snow storm.

          People not being prepared for for an impending obvious disaster that’s been overtaking them for years……… perfectly normal………. Normalcy Bias!

          Greece is so screwed!

        • Arby says:

          I just got back from Home Depot. Made a leisurely trip around the store and backed up my preps of all kinds of things. It was good to go up and down every isle and be reminded of “I need one or two of those” or “I don’t have one of those yet” I was thinking of how little of this stuff might be here if our situation was more like Greece. Better get it NOW while the getting is good.

          GOD BLESS you all.

      • The amount of attention Greece has gotten is absolutely beyond ridiculous. Like Brandon Smith said, Contagion is a lie and only drummed up by TPTB. We actually have real threats right here economically i.e. Illinois, New Jersey, California PUERTO RICO and cities like Chicago, Vallejo, San Bernardino and others.

        • durangokidd says:

          “… imagine a scenario where confidence in the U.S. dollar is lost and foreign creditors pull out.”

          Gotta call bullshit on the demise of the dollar.

          Not gonna happen. Only a nuclear war, solar emp, or pole shift would erode confidence in the dollar to a point where you will need precious metals for commerce.

          Other scenarios, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, flooding, conventional war, and civil unrest might require one to shelter in place and live off of food stores.

          If any of those three major scenarios happen, you have two choices: just bend over and kiss your ass goodbye, or look up your Redemption draws neigh. 🙁

          • Acid Etch says:

            PMs are a bunch of fucking bullshit. They just want your money.

            Who the fuck would you trade it to and for what?

            Try to sell it back, only the PM companies will buy it and for pennies on the dollar.

            It would make you a target in SHTF.

            You cant eat gold or shoot it.

            • durangokidd says:

              AE: “PMs are a bunch of fucking bullshit.”

              You don’t use gold to buy and sell in a crisis. Silver could be used for buying and selling if absolutely necessary, but it is primarily useful for speculation if you understand the fundamental relationships between gold and silver, to increase your capital gains.

              You use gold (and to a lesser extent silver) to preserve a portion of your wealth THROUGH the changes that are coming, once you have your preps. 🙂

      • Gregory8 says:

        How many more times are we going to hear that Greece is on the edge of collapse. First it was June of 2013, then May of 2014, then a major downturn in their stock market in Oct. 2014. Sounds more like some silly soap opera that just never ends because there’s always some new twist. And what if they do collapse? It’s not as though it will be the end of the EU. It would be like us loosing Arkansas or WV. Ehhh, so what!

        • the kkk rebel says:

          hey gregory8 don’t you worry about Arkansas YOU ASSHAT,and you can bet your ass that many here are far better prepared for what ever may come so you can go to hell and kiss my Arkansas ass.

          • passinwiththewind says:

            To make a prediction, without trying to sound like a “know it all”, I’d say, this Christmas will be unlike any other we have ever experienced since Christmas celebrations were established in America as National Observance Holidays.

            Some people may even get to know what Christmas was like for many of my relatives growing up. Their best Christmases were the ones where they received one nice gift, wrapped in a brown paper bag, like a new pair of shoes, or a pair of pants and mittens.

            Other Christmases, they only got a small bag of candy and maybe some fruit or nuts.

            Give that to kids today and they would throw it down on the floor and stomp it like piss ants.

            I say it is time for the reckoning to begin, and let the chips fall where they may. The shaking down will cause the separation of the sheep and the goats. And the good fig from the bad. The fruit bearing tree from the dead tree. The wheat from the tare.

            Amen! Hear that libturds? Amen!

            • passinwiththewind says:

              Remember…about thirty days ago i said we have about 90 days, to get fully prepared, I believe.

              Now it is about sixty days and counting.

              Before you can blink, it will be down to thirty, and counting.

              • passinwiththewind says:

                Remember…. slingshot made the comment, “ninety days, Jerry.”
                In reference to the song “wnen you’re hot you’re hot”.

                Funny man.

                I hear that all the time from my better half. Especially when I remind her of the first time she farted out loud, after we had just started co-habitating seriously.

                She was bending over the bathroom sink putting on makeup, getting ready for work and thought I was still asleep. I could see her from the bed. I was thinking how nice she looked and what a beautiful round butt she had when out of the blue …she let a 30 second ripper go, that echoed thru the high ceiling in the master bath.

                I was shaking with laughter while keeping still and not sounding out, until i could no longer contain myself.

          I hate it but I have to agree. We have the luxury, of walking out to our front yard and picking out a pear(Avocado), or going to the freezer for a pound of hamburger, harvested from our “pet” Mogo the cow, or chasing down a chicken to find her eggs, somewhere in the grass. City people on the mainland are screwed.

            Yea, i was doing “inventory” last evening enjoying walking around my place, eating nectarines off my tree, tried out a peach, realized i had 6 big bunches of banannas to cut, needed to strip leaves off 1/4 acre of my kale because sales are down and need to keep it picked, found a bunch of volunteer pie pumpkins and few hundred potato plants in an old field thats been fallow, guess they liked the rain, chased off a couple dozen pheasants that decided to camp in my corn, found a few dozen daikon that just keep coming up and spreading, then cut an artichoke, a few dozen asperagus shoots and went to make dinner,

              In the article, he writes about the Greek situation– what’s been occurring behind the scenes for the past several months, the brilliant plan of the Greek government which allowed the people to get their sh– together before giving the IMF “the finger”, and the downfall of the elites– they did a sneak attack on the mother f– ers at the top!

                Its my irrigation reservoir, just did a bunch of repairs to it like grouting the boulders i have lining the top of the liner, and completely cleaned it, put in a nice concrete patio and trellis so we can enjoy it, am running a pool pump, filter, automatic vacum, skimmer, and clorinator to keep water clean and algae free,i plugged up the drip lines on a field because there was too much algae in the water, the PH is out of wack too most months from the county system so this way i can keep it constant in a reasonable range and they keep changing their purification media so that causes problems depending on what i am using the water for, typically the algae is the biggest problem, am rotating back into alfalfa for cover crops since i cut back production so much, and am going to run drip lines in those fields rather than overhead, so only way to keep lines from clogging with moss is to eliminate the moss!

                Daikon is a long cylindrical radish, the root is white, usually weigh between 1-2# are good stir fried or pickled, the greens are also edible, they were a variety that was in a seed blend i planted in my borders, now has sort of naturalized, so typically my borders go from rye, to nasturtiums to daikon to red clover then back again, need to re plant them because kikuyu grass is taking over will choke everything out,

          I finally found affordable housing in a very good location– tons of natural resources, away from the masses, walnut and hickory nut trees, national forests close by, etc.; its all pretty ideal!

          However, everything here is unbelievably expensive (in stores)! Will never be able to stock up because the stores rip people off horribly! Plus, it seems like Gestapo country with all the red tape! Everything you try to do, there are tons of red tape- which I abhor! Its really bad here!

          All my prepping stuff is still back home, hundreds of miles away, in storage unit. If I move it down here, it will cost a fortune. However, I am down here and its cheap rent. (Things are a million times cheaper back home, where my storage is and not much red tape there). Basically, there are problems wherever you go!

          Do I go back where my supplies are, bite the bullet and pay more rent, but still there will be cheap stores there. Or do I stay down here, spend a fortune to move my stuff here, and have to pay lots more for stuff here in the stores because of outrageous prices?

      To All

      I heard from people I know yesterday. I was told that in the next 6 months you will see the EBT system go down for two weeks. They will blame it on a computer glitch. Then it will be followed by interest rates at 18%.
      These are reliable sources. I cannot say who, what, or where I heard this. I am sure you can understand.
      I hope this does not happen. This comes with all the other things going on around the world.

      Something big is coming soon. You can just feel it in your bones. I have never felt a more foreboding or bad feeling. Please get ready. I so hope I am wrong.

      One last thing. For some time now our so called government has been moving section 8 housing into suburbs. This explains why! No EBT and your neighbor are middle class and have money.

      • And when it doesn’t happen in 6 months what will you do? Will you continue to believe such things or just move on with your life? I am tired of predictions that never come true.

      This is a pretty big deal.

      This is the first nation I know of ever to say no to the IMF (a.k.a BIS, Federal Reserve). The people of greece no longer want to be subject to the everlasting debt cycle. Good for them.

      However, rough times are ahead for the Greek people. The IMF will certainly try to starve the Greek people and cut off their access to natural resources thereby all but shut down the country due to lack of electricity, etc.

      After a while though, the Greeks will seek out their own natural resources.

      IN STEPS ISIS WITH THE SYRIAN OIL THEY HAVE MONETIZED.

      Greece gets the power turned back on. ISIS becomes a “legitimate” nation state with state revenues (oil). And voila, a birth of a nation and an alliance occurs since Greece already has a significant Muslim population.

      If Israel decides they want to start a blockade of ISIS oil shipments (Israel is a big proponent of the IMF), War in the Middle East is sure to break out.

      Combine all of this with the Global Finance restructuring about to take place (Yuan as part of the SDR) and…

      Well, we might just be seeing the sparks that ignite the next world war.

      And every handout in every town
      And every lock that ain’t locked, when no one’s around.

      I sing, trailers for sale or rent, rooms to let, fifty cents
      No phone, no pool, no pets, I ain’t got no cigarettes
      Ah, but, two hours of pushin’ broom
      Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
      I’m a man of means by no means, king of the road.

      I think today’s events should wake up the sleeping dogs to put their prepping in high gear before we are in the same place as the Greeks are today.

      I must admit that I have put my prepping on a slower burner since our move to our BOL but come sun up tomorrow morning I am going to be on the road to the local grocery store, since we are quite far into the mountains just how far that may be is an unknown factor. However far that is and whatever I have to do to make at least a couple of trips to fill in the gaps will just have to be. We have so much to do just getting settled and starting to think about the coming winter that we have let the month of June just slip away, hope I don’t end up being sorry for it.

      Hope everyone on this site is ready to go and just finishing up the odds & ends before the big event.

      The Greeks have known about this for how long and they’re just panicking now at the last minute? Typical.

      For the rest of us, the time to panic is now – not tomorrow, not next week, it’s NOW, before everyone else does. Then we will be ready and can sit back and watch the real honest-to-goodness freak-out panic of those who waited too long.

      Get ready, be prepared, get right with God, because it’s coming and it won’t be pretty.

        Like the American Free Shit Army, they’ve become 100% accustomed to somebody else bailing them out every time. The very idea of have to take responsibility for themselves has never entered their tiny minds. Those Greeks who had any get-up-and-go have already got up and left.

        (Happen to have known a couple or three Greek engineers in my career. They all came here for school and never went home. “No job prospects there for somebody who can actually make or build something”, to paraphrase one of them who worked with me on one long project. He also said “the only way for an ordinary Joe to get rich over there is to become a limousine driver, a pimp, or a drug dealer – tourists always need transportation, hookers, and blow.” A good engineer, but cynical as hell.)

            Sorry I just could not resist.

            • passinwiththewind says:

              Thanks Mikey,

              I’ve been waitin’ to hear that for a while. lol. Seriously.

              Actually, I’ve been led to pass on what I have learned from the scriptures. I don’t claim to be an expert on anything, especially the bible. However; many years ago I prayed for truth, and it was like, OK, but be prepared to start from scratch and forget everything you have heard and been taught for thirty years.

              As information and new understandings started flowing like a cool brook flowing through a meadow, a big picture of truth emerged like a giant gig saw puzzle. With over 15 years of researching and receiving gifts of understanding from the Holy Spirit, more and more of the truth flowed and made pieces of the puzzle that snapped right into place.

              Many, many times I have tried to quit, and I guess, get fired, by saying I am not worthy, I am just an old worn out truck driver with limited college education. I have had many other jobs, but nothing as complete as OTR trucking. Anyways, I kept receiving the same message…warrior…rally troops in the muck. Nothing spells muck like..shit..htfplan. It gets down and dirty here, and has since I first visited in late ’08, or early ’09; I can’t remember exactly. I do know the cussing/foul language has subside for the most part. I have never been one to use the Lord’s name in vane, but I grew up with a grandpa that cussed like a drunken sailor, and I never ever saw him drunk. He was the one born in 1891.

              Anyways, I wanted so bad to just live out my retirement fishing, camping, a little hunting, riding my Hog thru the countryside, etc, etc. After driving for about 2 million, (accident free miles), the last thing i wanted was to travel again, all the time. Why couldn’t somebody else with more knowledge and education, and definitely more spirituality do it? And it kept coming back, that I was not gonna let evil or demonically controlled liberals get away with anything thrown at me. I have not and will not. They are like snakes under my feet crawling in the dust of my path.

              And that is true, I get my grit from my grandparents and my Creator, so here I have been all these years. Now I have received the words I have been wanting to hear, “you are fired, and it is time to pass the torch”.

              Oh I don’t plan to leave this site and all my friends right away, but the last article/piece will be my last big post here.
              I never intended to appear as a site hijacker as some have claimed, and prayed about what to say to Mac about it.

              God said it’s all mine, mac doesn’t own anything, I want you there. I’ll handle Mac and the others. Remember, God uses whomsoever He will, and He is still on the Throne.

              God sent me to a Big website many years ago, and I could not understand why. The preacher and radio show host is internationally recognized and the Ministry following was huge. So were the dollars flowing into it. So was the twisted messages. Some straight out lies that were not biblical but just the interpretations of this minister, and more specifically his wife and her girlfriend. Anyways, when God led me to explain truths and folks started questioning their leaders deceptions, all hell broke loose. I was chastised and threatened, and then eventually banned. Then “their” chastisement started, and it was costly. God sent a literal fire down from heaven and cost them tens of thousands. I can’t get into details, but eventually their whole internet ministry was shut down for a good while, because they had been..”exposed”.

              Like i said, I was led to that site for a reason, and led here for a reason. So, all that have come against me personally, you better make sure you are in God’s good graces.

              Remember, God has said..”Touch not mine elect”. That is not a holier than thou statement from me, but one of humbleness as being chosen as a servant of my Heavenly Father.

              So carry on people.

      Time to fine tune. Working on physical conditioning now, arguing with myself to stay on a routine. Got my bicycle back on the road. If gas is $20/gallon a bike will be priceless.

      Some backups are gone. Need to go to Sam’s this week.

      Silver is cheap. Guns and ammo are available if you feel the need.

      This is a good week to inventory and fill gaps. If nothing happens re Greece and Puerto Rico, then no harm no foul.

      Otherwise, in a better position than most. We are on good terms with good neighbors and very far from large cities. No need to panic. May need to pick up popcorn at Sam’s so we can watch the show if the banks here crash.

      The country will be fine. Understand that country and government are not synonymous.

      I’m curious on how long everyone has prepped for. I got 90 days worth of food, water, batteries, some cash, etc. Pretty much of what I read here.

      I’m going on 70 and I have some medical issues. I figure if everything falls apart at the seams and it’s not getting better after three months then I’ll most likely not make it long term anyway.

      • slingshot says:

        Lost Karma.

        I prepped out a solid six months. Can extend that to a year by rationing. You have done better than most people. There is a lot to learn about eating habits. Eat when you are hungry. Cut out the snacks. Essential caloric intake for work.
        Know what will happen to fast food and restaurants. Then the SNAP and EBT at supermarkets. Ninety days is a major milestone.

      • EverythingISayIsALie says:

        I’m prepped for one solid year, maybe more. I have extra on top of that in case I have a stray guest that I can use or to barter with. Then I have my backups, alternates and spares.

      • Someone else says:

        I probably have two years worth of food. Three months of water with a creek 100 yards away. Four different methods of filtration. Enough first aid supplies for a good sized hospital. Toilet paper for two years too.

      Hopefully we dont get the “gay agency azz clowns” hitting up on you because your handle. First i must thank Mac, the master of DOOM for posting this picture and artilce. As i said before, we are literally surfing THE SHTF EVENT HORIZON. Now that the event has hit. Buttcrackofdoom, your post connects the dots and your timing and post sincronizes wonderfully. WE ARE GOING TO DIVE INTO SHTF anyday now. I was told like many, that from the moment you see Greece calapse, and that from the moment you see that, get all the food and supplies and get ready for civil war, total all out calapse. The citizens of Greece will need lost of grease because they are getting f…ke…d globalist style. Gee what a wonderfull start. They dont call it Greece for no reason, the economic azz rhealming engineered by the globalist rapist pedofiles has begun.

      The ideotic clowns attack me, tell me that i forgot my meds, need meds and all sorts of crap, then i ask myself, is that not a line of people buying up food and supplies. GREECE JUST CALAPSED. That proves that most people are not preppers. Oh, we must do what the agency azz clowns told me on this site, to stop talking crap that i dont know about, throw away my supplies, take medication, and chill out and that it wont happen. WELL IDOETS, IT WILL HAPPENA DN IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN AND WHEN NOVERMBER 2015 COMES AROUND YOU WILL LITERALLY SH….T YOUR PANTS. Well, i hate to tell you gay agency pedofile ideots, i am not going to listen to you. I do however recomend that you listen to us, your agency employers wont be coming to your rescure. The situation is that these guys and on this site because of Mac and this site is why when SHTF COMENSES, I WONT HAVE TO SLEEP UNDER A BRIDGE AND DO WITHOUT EATING FOR 2 WEEKS, AND IN this case of end game calapse, starve to death or get eaten by black dred lock felons and other criminal gansta rapist felon thugs coming for me and my supplies post shtf.

        A common, commendable characteristic of posters is a desire to be as independent as possible. If you want to be dependant on “taxpayers” and a complex urban environment that’s fine. Don’t care, really. We just percieve the risks differently.

      I have my sealed bottles of #7,it hits one final blowout,then,probably die trying to help others and off to the rock in hell.As always,Warchild has given this a lot of though and unless I suddenly find meself needing to adopt orphan kids or some such thing(would be patently unfair but would do it)will see some evil happening and whatever the odds going for a “Fuck It!”moment,final act of defiance and all!

      Greece, “DID NOT” make their loan payment to the IMF.
      Now watch the riots in the streets when they don’t get all their government free-be’s. Now how is next to default. It has started. time to top off gas cans, ammo cans, bean cans and any other can you would like to top off. Get ready I believe it has started (SHTF) and it will be like a snow ball rolling down MT. Everest by time it gets here. with only 3% to 5% prepared. I hate to say it but there will be smoke across the water and fire in the sky.

      I picture Manos sitting in a straight back chair next to the front window, keeping one eye on the road, and the other, the pathway to the front gate.

      Next to him on the small table is a plate of tart apple slices and salty cheese rind to hold him over as he assumes second watch.

      The light of the moon, the only light visible, reveals the sheen of his well oiled coach gun.

      “Come and take it”, he whispers to no one.

      Best to you and yours Manos…….BA.

      If or when what is happening in Greece comes to the US the entire world with little exception will be in the same fix. While everyone looks domestically, the world runs a very high probability of global war, as nations reach across their borders to solve their immediate needs like food and energy.

Look at all the free shit people a lot of them are totally unemployable. The bitches all look like their face is sunk in you know that crack head look. Ive seen women as old as I am that behave and speak like a 14 year old. That is sad grown adults with the mentality of a kid and they can vote and have a say in how we are governed. We are doomed humanity is a joke some people are a waste of resources. I’m tired of these useless eaters partaking in the fruit of my labor I can’t wait till the shit hits.

      Economic failure ALWAYS follows the moral failure of a country.

      I doubt there are many head-in-the-sand types here, but if you DO know of any, enlighten them with the following:

      Lesbian advocate Paula Ettelbrick proclaimed that, “transforming the very fabric of society… [and] radically reordering society’s view of reality” is the goal of the homosexual movement. And we can only assume the book burnings will begin any day now for those the advocate for freedom of conscience. After all, it is to these people as their leftist hero Herbert Marcuse said: “Liberating tolerance would mean intolerance against movements from the right and toleration of movements from the left,” Marcuse pontificated. “Certain things cannot be said, certain ideas cannot be expressed, certain policies cannot be proposed.”

      1. Valerie Richardson wrote today at http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jun/28/christian-farm-family-penalized-in-gay-wedding-ref “When Melisa Erwin called the Giffords about using their upstate New York property for a same-sex wedding ceremony, she apparently knew in advance that they would refuse. For one thing, she and her fiancee recorded the conversation. Even so, an administrative judge with the New York State Division of Human Rights ordered the Giffords to pay $3,000 to Ms. Erwin and Jennifer McCarthy for “mental pain and suffering,” in addition to $10,000 for violating the state’s human rights ordinance. In a brief filed Thursday, attorneys for Cynthia and Robert Gifford argue that the state’s ruling violates the First Amendment, but they also criticize the same-sex couple for what they describe as an “orchestrated set-up.” “The evidence, however, indicates that Respondents were aware of the Giffords’ beliefs and chose specifically to call and record Mrs. Gifford for the purposes of documenting the Giffords’ policy,” said the brief filed by attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom. “Such an orchestrated set-up can hardly form the basis for ‘mental anguish’ and suffering,” said the brief, which was submitted to the New York Supreme Court (hey! Only spilling hot coffee on yourself qualifies as mental anguish and suffering).

      2. Idaho City’s Ordinance Tells Pastors to Marry Gays or Go to Jail: By Cheryl K. Chumley wrote at http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/oct/20/idaho-citys-ordinance-tells-pastors-to-marry-gays-“Coeur d‘Alene, Idaho, city officials have laid down the law to Christian pastors within their community, telling them bluntly via an ordinance that if they refuse to marry homosexuals, they will face jail time and fines. The dictate comes on the heels of a legal battle with Donald and Evelyn Knapp, ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post wedding chapel in the city, but who oppose gay marriage.” See also http://joemiller.us/2014/10/local-government-orders-christian-ministers-perform-sex-weddings-face-jail-fines/ These fascists want to JAIL 68 year old Don Knapp for his right of free conscience http://dailysignal.com/2014/10/25/qa-couple-look-pauls-example-resisting-order-perform-gay-marriages/ Y’know… from these gay hypocrite advocates for “compassion.”

      3. Supreme Court Rejects Christian Photographer’s Appeal of Lesbian Wedding Verdict You MUST agree with the gay Brownshirts. It is, as the New Mexico Supreme Court told Huegenin, the “price of her citizenship.” http://cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/kristine-marsh/supreme-court-rejects-christian-photographers-appeal-lesbian-wedding or http://radio.foxnews.com/toddstarnes/top-stories/nm-court-says-christian-photographers-must-compromise-beliefs.html
      4. The Nazis used Brownshirts to destroy the windows and businesses of Jews. The fascist gays use blackrobes (activist judges) to fine and destroy businesses of anyone who DARES disagree with them. This couple was fined $135,000. Don’t’ worry. You may be next. Christian Bakers who Refused Cake Order for Gay Wedding Forced to Close Shop http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/sep/2/christian-bakers-who-refused-cake-order-gay-weddin/ Then, of course, there is the violence and threats to them from the “love wins” gay hypocrites, as here: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/31/economic-terrorism-bakery-that-refused-to-make-gay-couples-wedding-cake-gets-threats-could-close-down/ The Times reports they “have been hounded by vicious phone calls and emails.” Just more of the usual from the radical gays.
      5. But the best example of the Brownshirt gay Nazi judicial Kristallnachts is grandmotherly 70 year old florist Barronelle Stutzman. No, the leftist media won’t tell you about her, but I will: Stutzman had employed gay people before, and sold gay flowers to at least one gay couple for a decade, when asked to do a gay wedding. She politely demurred. You know the rest. She was sued, and the judicial activists won. These new masters of moral conformity are demanding obedience at the point of a gun – or at least a lawsuit. Just as all tyrants do. One story at http://alliancedefendingfreedom.org/arlene-flowers?referral=I0215ARLF1

      Extra credit:

      Typical gay H8TE: “Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?” was among the massive number of threats Memories Pizza in Indiana got for disagreeing with gay fascism. Owner Kevin O’Connor shut his pizza parlor down until further notice after his family began receiving threatening phone calls and social media posts. When Kevin and his daughter Crystal O’Connor answered truthfully that they wouldn’t cater gay “wedding,” if asked the threats from the “tolerant” Left were so vicious — everything from burning down the pizza parlor to killing its owners — that the O’Connors closed the store and went into hiding. The response to the H8TE-filled radical gays? “ I’d do the same thing again,” Kevin O’Conner explained. “It’s my belief. It’s our belief. It’s what we grew up on. I’m just sorry it comes to this because neither one of us dislike any of those people. I don’t hold any grudges.” Leftists actions? More dirty pool, such as flooding the store’s Yelp page with negative reviews trying to destroy his business. Homoerotic photos were posted to embarrass them, of course. The usual H8TEful stuff from the radical gays and radical left.Oh yes. Memories Pizza in Nichols WI was also got hate messages from the gays, as reported on WGN TV April 3rd on their 10 PM news, even tho they have absolutely nothing to do with a tiny mom and pop shop two states away. Pretty much clueless on just about everything

      Then there is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlpJzSPgZ88 12 year old boy twerking (thanks, Miley Cyrus) at gay pride festival. Disgusting. Or this; well-known gay activist Dan Savage – tapped by Disney to assist with a 2015 production as he is a recognized spokesman for the gay community, and his H8TEful comments, including his daydreams about “f—king the s—t out of” former Sen. Rick Santorum and suggesting that another politician he opposed should be “dragged behind a pickup truck until there’s nothing left but the rope.

      Gonna try to water can some veggies from the garden this year it’s new to me never did it before being able to preserve my hard work to save for later I feel will be vital. Last summer I gave a shit load of veggies away because I didn’t know how to preserve them. Seems like a skill for the ladies so I’m trying to get the wife into that. I like doing the garden. All these ebt free shit people are gonna wake up and the free meal train is gonna come to a halt and they are gonna be screwed. Most of these people live in a subsidized hosing project with no area to have a garden. This is what you get when you want to live on public assistance. The gov don’t want you to be able to produce your own food you might not vote for the free shit politician they don’t want you to be able to get your own housing they won’t be able to control you. I think all these type people are in for a very rude awakening. At some point the gov will have to make a hard choice to cut programs because it just won’t be possible to fund the free shit lifestyle. The day is quickly approaching.

        If you were any more intelligent than I anticipated, you’d outsmart the fruit flies in my kitchen for a bite at the apple. Other than that? I hope my correct spelling and punctuation doesn’t affect your (lack of) reading comprehension. If you’re an example of what a prepper truly is, I and my buddies will have it made knocking you down and stealing your precious preps. Like an adult lunch money strong arm thing. Keep prepping, lemming.

          LAL,

          Is this maroon great or what?! He always makes a point of telling us he works in an ” office” for a living. When I point out that even the lowly mail delivery boy has to have better command of reading and spelling than he does, I ask him what kind of office he works in. His response is always the same, he runs away to the next article and pounds his chest about how tough he is. You’re dealing with the end product of several generations of inbreeding when you try to communicate with ” it”, so yeah, I’ll take the flies outsmarting him and even give odds on it too. They really should throw the net over this one once for all, if anything, before he actually hurts himself by banging his head on the wall too much.

      Greeks had better become independent of Germany’s federal Europe. Living off the land of Greece, like their ancient ancestors, is the way for Greeks to regain their independence from Germany’s European Union. Americans had better take note, for their own survival and independence from their continental and now, also, world Federalists.

    63. Tunyzarc says:

      The Greek crisis is self inflicted and the extreme of problems in America. The Greeks will work sort of, and will get to it when they get to it. Their tax system was similar to liar loans (stated income) in the U.S. All programs were supported by people living in villas and reporting 10 k incomes a year.
      The Greeks do not give a shit and a land of everything for nothing. It is extreme to compare the U.S. to them.

    64. Have you ever read “The Harbinger”. What is in it is true. This year is the 7th year and something is going to happen just like all of the last happenings. These happenings in it concerns America. Something is going to POP this year.
