Dear Folks, Hyper-Inflation is no fun. Do what this guy tells you and each time you go to the store, buy a little extra and stick it in a closet. I have been doing this for about 6 months now. I get made fun of a lot, but a quick risk/reward analysis will tell you that it really does make sense.
The risk? Your friends and family make fun of you and you tie up an extra few hundred dollars in non-perishable food items.
The reward? Not going hungry or thirsty should such a scenario come to pass. Our budget deficit just passed the $1 Trillion dollar mark in June. Our congress is stacked with Democrats and even Republicans who spend money like they own the printing press. Which they do. Which is what will eventually lead us into this situation of hyper-inflation.
I don't mind so much when people make fun of me. If it happens to you, come tell me and maybe we can start a support group or something. Be stubborn. Don't be afraid to look silly for awhile. I am pretty sure you will not regret being prepared.
And as much as I am irritated with Obama at the moment, he is only 30% to blame in my estimate, at the moment...(as time passes, that number goes up, depending on what Feds do.) This situation has been in the making long before we had even heard of Obama.
Why am I saying this? One first has to understand the problem before one can solve the problem. As a voter, I would vote for anybody brave enough to cut spending. If you find such a person, let me know. In their absence, think twice about voting for people who want to place further restrictions on firearms. Guns, I mean.
I don't own one, hope I never have to, would rather there be fewer rather than more in normal times, but we are not in normal times. I want to be able to legally possess a firearm should the situation warrant it.
It would be nice too, if we could shore up the borders so we only have to fight each other for whatever resources are left. Barring that, get a bigger gun.
PS, Smile, I could be wrong!
