    The Woodpile report 7/25/2017 has a short paragraph that explains in better words than I ever could what will happen in the USA if we have a crisis and how most of us will be doomed.

    This topic would be totally useful if it included a link.

    Six or seven paragraphs broadly prophesying that the big bad Federal goobernment will requisition (aka confiscate) everything in sight, in the event of a nation wide disaster, and resisters will be punished severely. I'm afraid that I am just as underwhelmed by his crystal ball gazing as he apparently is of the motion picture film, 'Dunkirk'.

    I think his suggestion of staying away from crowds is probably a reasonable one in some situations, however, it might not pay to be too inflexible about that. Only you know what the right course of action is to take, in the context of the actual situation that you are confronted with. I think he's just filling white space with digital ink...I think the time might be better spent elsewhere on the interwebz....:sleep:

    I'll give you the link for Dunkirk, it's much more entertaining and informative than O'l Remu's blog.....note linked web page may contain spoilers......Dunkirk (2017 film) - Wikipedia

    I guess he is talking about this one. Woodpile Report as to which damn paragraph he is talking about he is going to have to clarify that, as this guy is long winded. (me calling someone else long winded .... that is a joke right?)
    .
    How about it Duane? You got us here. What paragraph in particular enlightened you so???

    In my best Vinnie Barbarino voice -"Who?"

    But Ol' Remus said it. Like Jethro's rule about not going out without a knife, it's one of those things to be taken for granted.

    I think I"ll bookmark the Woodpile report, looks more interesting than some of the threads we have. Certainly opinionated and maybe even tin foil oriented, but looks entertaining if nothing else.

    The right column on Remus' home page is not a bad read if individualism is your forte'.

    ETA: The Woodpile report is a periodical, so to say, so for latecomers to the thread, you need to know the date (7/25/17, or the issue number, in this case 488) to read where the commentary originates.

    I find it a bit of a stretch to think that the Federal government would send a Federal agent to inspect every home for food stashes.
    Concerning freeze-dried, I do suppose that a good programmer might be able to write something that tracked everyone that purchased large quantities or numerous purchases but even then there are thousands of online and stores selling these products. It's just not feasible.

    But, this did remind me that I should try to pick up another case of freeze-dried pouches.

    When you buy that kind of stuff pay cash. If you need to buy online from a store that you can't go to, arrange to mail them a money order and then have the order delivered to the trucking depot. You could even pick any address at random and use it as a delivery spot. With today's tracking systems you can see where your shipment is and know the delivery time. Just go wait at the address you've picked and when the delivery truck gets there just pick up your order right at the truck!

    I don't know how to link and the first few paragraphs are the ones that impressed me.He states in my opinion, that it isn't the federal government that will take your preps etc, it will be your fellow townsmen, the same ones who believe that they have a God given right to free medical care, free education, free housing if they are "needy" and a guaranteed minimum income, even if they don't work, etc. Your preps will be distributed to the needy, children are hungry you know, and if you resist you will be punished for hoarding. They are already trying to force income redistribution in the name of fairness and equality and helping the poor. It is in my opinion not much of a stretch to sharing your food and other goods. Here in southern New Hampshire I often feel like I am living in some community wide insane asylum and with my house, greenhouse, preps, age, etc, I don't want to move, but any really bad situation if SHTF will not be survivable in this area. It isn't the federal government that I fear, it is my neighbors who will take my house in a minute if I can't pay my property taxes, most of which goes to the "public" schools, that won"t let my fertilize my fields, manure stinks and it might pollute their wells, who worry that my garden and greenhouse may decrease their property values, etc. may be different in some other areas, but most of New England has been lost to the gimmies, the greens, the wild eyed liberals, etc, and all the rest of us can do is maintain a low profile and try to live out our lives until the whole thing collapses. I plan on dying before that happens as my long term goal and the rest can go to he## in the ruins of the dream world that they insisted on creating. Will be 80 in the fall, worked 9 hours fixing gas cutoff saws, jack hammers, air compressors, etc and when I stopped in for coffee on the way home, listened to a neighbor kid who has never really worked in his life, set there and bit## about his school debts and no good jobs for a history major and drink his $6 latte, so I am a little disillusioned about my neighbors and the next generations.

    Sad, but too true

    And now, the list so often seen and in many cases, too often wrong.
    • List of executive actions by John F. Kennedy - Wikipedia in case you were wondering just how many EOs Big John signed.
      The Federal register has the disposition tables of the EOs, what, if any, replaced it and so on.
      Nope - you are welcome to look them up for yourself. Keep in mind these were promulgated (issued) before the disaster that was the Bay of Pigs and of course, the to-do (October 16–28, 1962) with the old Soviet that nearly got the entire East, and coincidentally millions of citizens, incinerated. Quite the right bastard, eh?

      Yup - EO's starting with 10995 thru 11005 were all signed on Feb 16, 1962. I'm no fan of JFK

      EO 12919, sign by Clinton, William J. Clinton: Executive Order 12919—National Defense Industrial Resources Preparedness - this links to text of the EO.
    10996 dealt with withholding for Nat Guard types - routine admin stuff.....

    Yes, I think that is certainly a given "it isn't the federal government that will take your preps etc., it will be your fellow townsmen..." and it just isn't New Hampshire, it will be every where. The key, of course, is to keep them secret for as long as you can. Up here, Northern Idaho, people keep to themselves, but I freely admit that when they get hungry it will turn into a mess, probably a bloody mess.

    As for your young History major neighbor...if I thought I could have fed my family and myself by teaching History I definitely would have done it but, the true fact of life is, you can't. Only those that already have money can major in History and survive to continue on to teach University and possibly publish and pick up a few more dollars but us poor folk have to work for our crust of bread so...so that kid needs to stop whining and take up a trade or marry money or etc. Welcome to the real world, kid!
