    Are you a person who grows their own vegetables and cans them? If so, then you are "too prepared."


    Just imagine how they feel about reloading ammunition.

    We could live off the pantry for a couple of months if we had too. Eggs and milk would be the first to go. Given the current state of the union and the level of hate and dishonesty of the average Democrat, it is probably a good idea to be able to support yourself at home for a while.

    We do not need a big natural disaster to expose the violence of the average Democrat voter. If the power went out for a week, seven days, these animals would be attacking passers-by to steal their cars, clothes, food and whatever else they felt they deserved. They would be banging on your door to demand you feed or house them and threatening you if you did not. Democrats are the scum of the earth. Do you think the millions of foreign parasites who come here illegally are going to starve or freeze? Hell no, they will be at your door.

    If you have a home on acreage, a generator, your own well, a wood stove for heat, extra fuel for cars and equipment, room for a garden and food in the pantry you better have a gun. The Democrats welfare state breeds parasites who are as worthless as a third nipple on their best day, they will expect to be fed, housed and clothed and they sure as hell do not plan on working for it.

    I had that happen the other day. I had to go to Capitol Heights Md. for work. Stopped a a stop sign and there were 3 young blacks, a woman and 2 guys. I looked carefully to make sure it was safe and made my turn. Looked in my rearview and theyre all in the street flipping the bird at me like I had almost hit them. I go on to the next light ant there was a group of 5-6 young black males. As I rolled toward the light which had just gone red, and they saw I was white, I could see them start talking to each other. I rolled up the windows and locked the door. When I stopped at the light a couple of them stepped behind the car and one started to step in front. I just floored it and ran the light. I would gladly have run over the dumb fucks.

    Ill feed them as long as the like lead.

    Humans are animals. The atrocities committed by humans are not divided by politics.
    I agree that the Great Society has engineered a large portion of parasites in the country. City dwellers, suburban subdivision people and many others are depending on the grocery store, McDonald's and Walmart. Hardship will bring interesting times. How many of those that think they are prepared for that time actually are? Once the shelves are bare all bets are off on what the suit and tie types will resort to.

    This doesn’t just apply to the urban types. Self preservation will make anyone act differently.

    I am very fortunate to have most of what I need to hold out for a while...cattle, poultry, a garden, canned food, a creek that runs below the house etc...

    I intend on working with a few neighbors that are less fortunate, especially since I couldn't sell calves during a true crisis, nor could I feed all of them. So calves in exchange for work, or keeping an armed guard on the road that leads to my place...or the bridges that are a natural choke point to our 'community' if things really got that bad. I can fully support a few families, so I have that going for me.

    I will trust nobody...I trust virtually nobody now. If the scum from the inner cities actually made it out here I'd just collect gold teeth like some people do hubcaps. Ive often joked about living like the old couple from The Book of Eli, but aside from the cannibalism that is my model.

    Community is the only way you'd make it if it got that bad. I don't care how many guns you have, you aren't stopping far superior numbers of determined people. So I'd suggest making some very local friends. If one if you cans food/grows food, then perhaps the others can find other ways to contribute.

    I guess this means I'm too prepared.

    having a gun and no ammo is not good ,but otherwise too much of a good thing is still good . And until I fill two warehouses full of ammo , powder, primers, and bullets for each of the guns I own , I will never admit I have enough cause I don't . But i can say until I find more I am pretty happy with my supplies not extreamly happy just pretty happy . that could change at any given time .

    Are you TOO prepared?​

    That is a timely question. There have been some valid replies above. The guy who thinks all he needs is guns and ammo is living in the world of denial...... Reality is a person or tribe can never stock enough to survive several years. There will, somewhere, be a happy medium. That medium will change by region, a family's age, the other tribes in their area and many, many unknowns. The collapse will be world wide. The dependence of one country on another will bring them all down like a house of cards. We will witness some "birds of a feather flock together", some will sit on the curb and wait for the government to bail them out and there will be many Lone Wolves. We will witness many "Bug Out" plans fail, we will see many die off from a small cut or puncture that gets infected and goes untreated, many will succumb to lack of medications / assisted living / dialysis / oxygen, etc. Those who reside in 3rd world countries, living in the slums will not see much difference and will probably survive for a very long time on very little..... Prioritizing needs will also play a part in longevity... Oxygen, water, shelter, food, security and the list goes on. A large percentage of American's prefer to not think about the future.

    Folks better have some combination of the following saved up:

    Food
    Ammo
    First aid supplies
    Toothpaste and toilet paper

    If you have ammo the rest is a little easier to come by.

    You're missing 1 thing though, and its probably the most common oversight.

    Almost everyone is absolute dog shit with a weapon regardless of how many they have or how much ammo they stack up.

    Even 'gun people' - Literally fucking garbage.

    However, it doesn’t stop there. Twitter posts are reporting screenshots of canning and gardening groups that are also being asked, “Are you concerned that someone you know is too prepared? We care about preventing extremism on Facebook. Others in your situation have received confidential support.”

    ah good, ill be sure to let my 4'7" 97 yr old Italian grandmother know Facebook considers her a "right wing extremists".....all because she cans tomatoes from her garden....

    ....then again, this is also the same woman that spit on Benito Mussolini.....so the left probably already do consider her a "right wing extremist"....

    I've never felt too prepared. If I have a month of provisions, I feel like I should have 2. If I have 2 moths worth, I feel like I should have 6.

    That said, anyone here try Yoders bulk canned meat chunks, either beef chucks or chicken or the taco meat? Any good? I was thinking about grabbing a couple cases of each for the house and cabin. I've also noticed the Keystone stuff on wally worlds site so if someone has feedback on that brand I'd listen too.

    I only have to prepare for a few things.

    Everyone else is preparing the rest for me.
    Helpful when most of the locals in your AO are into having a 1 year supply on hand... Amirite? Full disclosure, I have nothing against the LDS take on being prepared. "Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing," (Doctrine and Covenants, Section 109:8)

  • Commie Facefuck doing commie shit? I'd be surprised if they ain't.

    My only uses for Facefuck: Some readymade disposable sock accounts where I routinely dump a shit ton of images and videos from Goregrish, Hoodsite, and Bestgore onto. My gifts for already emotionally frazzled soy guzzling pussy ass Facefuck "moderators" who screen every image and video that gets posted. Didn't some article say that those Facefuck mods suffered extensive PTSD from the gore and weird sex and shit that people post? Well, here's a dump truck load of it for you to fucking enjoy, you treasonous pests.

    Add to that no matter how hard core you think you are

    5 guys roll up with a thought out plan to take what’s yours and it’s you and your dog with 5,000 rounds and 30 p-mags …. it’s over.

    the homeowner might take some with him but if these scenarios come true it will be 1-2 intruders in the beginning.

    when scarcity and famine happen the groups will be much larger.

    before that happens the federal government will send in the national guard and federalize all farm land /live stock.

    a household with a AR out one window and a custom bolt 6.5 out the other with all the Ammo and freeze dried food you can buy isn’t stopping a Stryker with a squad.
