Avoid what?
 
2017-09-12 08:49:56 AM  
Took one for the team and clicked.

Short version - You should be prepping, but do it before the disaster.  Stock up a supply of non-perishable food, containers that hold water, guns and ammo.

Also, $100 a case for water isn't price gouging, it's "the stupid tax".

I keep a pantry that never gets too bare. I'll be eating well for at least 2 weeks.

If you panic while prepping, shiat like this happens:

I don't prep, but I keep a well-stocked pantry. That, along with a grill, ensures we can ride out most storms.

Don't rely on your ability to pull out. Wear a condom.

A halfway rational and useful advice column at WND? Not mentioning Obama or Islam once?

Shoot, maybe the world really is about to end.

There's a difference between disaster prep and the weirdo preppers, the later being panicked all the time.

The other reason I hate that headline is it perpetuates the notion of "price gouging," a farcical concept and yet another socialist lie to inflame the gullible. It would be more accurate to call price-gouging a "stupid penalty."

I'm starting to think the Mormons have it right (only in this regard). They stock up a year's worth of supplies and food, and always keep it current. Since we live in "interesting times," it's becoming more and more reasonable to consider this, as well as some 19th-century skills in case electricity goes out for extended times.

Keep a pantry
Keep a victory garden
Know your neighbors
Have an escape plan
Know how to find family

Now, just let me fluff this with some stock photos and filler text, and we have a Buzzfeed/Cracked/BoredPanda/WND...wait, WND?! Not clicking.

Canned goods, unless they're improperly stored or used for batting practice, can apparently be eaten years after the expiration date.

Fruits, vegetables, meats and meals all come fully cooked in cans. Some serious potable water storage, a decent store of medical supplies and you're set for years.

Oh and barbed wire, searchlights, trenches, automatic weapons, some children to barter away for your freedom...

I go camping, so my long term plan is to buy some camping rations and build a small stockpile of freeze dried meals that I can tuck away if a disaster like big earthquake along the Cascadia subduction zone happens. All I need to do is break out my backpacking stove and boil some water. Plus I also have water filters for the woods, so as long as there aren't chemicals in the water, I can basically drink the nastiest water with no problem.

I have a just-so-crazy-it-might-work plan on ditching Chicago in the case of some crazy shiat going on.

Grab a gun and as much food as I can carry and head for Belmont harbor. From there, I steal a sailboat and sail it to rural North Western Michigan, where my folks live.

There's a prepper on YouTube who *insists* that you buy Spam brand spam. His house label and off label brands of spam didn't hold their seal and spoiled.

I'm pretty sure he's a shareholder in Hormel

If you go to a prepper conference (whatever the fark that is), and write for WND you may be short bus special.
If you need 3 months of food in the USA -fark that shiat- put the cold barrel of a gun in your mouth and call it done.
If shiat hits the fan who the fark is worrying about their mortgage?

A week or two of food and water on hand. Need anymore than that? burn shiat to the ground, run though the city/town looting with rest of humanity running amuck.

Prepping is huge on the extreme paranoid right, as you would expect from people living in constant fear of government black helicopters instituting martial law and/or Jesus coming back to usher in the apocalypse. Both Alex Jones and Jim Bakker have massive online shops selling survival equipment and long storage food to the paranoid and faithful.

I know I live in a snowy land with uppity unpredictable weather but don't most folks have some back-up chow stored in their pantries already?
 
2017-09-12 11:15:15 AM  
Storing a years worth of food is stupid.  Not only is it expensive, it takes up a lot of space.  It also doesn't do you much good if the storm or blast wave flips your double-wide over.   It is always best to resort to Cannibalism early.  You just can't jump the gun on it though.  I would have looked mighty foolish if I was gnawing on somebody's arm last Friday in Boca Raton.

I can sail, but not well. However, I have been taking some lessons just because it's a skill I wish to be proficient at.

funnily enough npr did a thing about price gouging with an economist who justified it.  to paraphrase and dumb it down for our more liberal minded folks:

thing is rare at location
that makes thing expensive at location
people with thing want money
they bring thing where its expensive
people who need thing get thing
