Buying Preps And The People Who Look At You

I was at Wal-Mart the other day buying some items for storage. In my buggy was 20 (2lb) bags of rice, 3 (10 lb) bags of rice, 20 boxes of salt, 15 bags of red beans, 15 bags of black beans, 10 bottles of cooking oil and 8 boxes of 12ga shotgun shells. Plus I have a few other items we needed at the house. So I'm walking into sporting goods with all the food stuff in my buggy. I'm going to check on the ammo and maybe buy some. I get to the ammo case and no 22LR, 9mm, .223, 38 spl or any of the ammo I want, so I look at the shotgun shells and the have some at a good price. As I'm putting the shells into my buggy I see this guy standing about five feet from me. So I look up at him and say "hello", he said hello back and then the next second he asked me if I was getting ready for world war III. I smiled and said "no just stocking up my hunting cabin". And then I said,"maybe I should buy extra for my house in case the economy gets any worse". He look me in the face and said,"I think things are as bad as they are going to get, I think things are starting to get better".
This is the sheeple's way of thinking and it will cost most of them with there life's. I could have talked to this guy, but I know it would have been a waste of my time and his. I could see it in his eye's, this man lives to be unprepared. I still don't get the sheeple and the way they see me. I'm crazy, nut's or I'm a doom seeker but it's not crazy to waste you money on a boat you may use 4-6 times a year, or go on trips to God knows where and spend a ton of money. I'm not saying to stop having fun or going on trip, because I still do. But for your safety and the safety of your family stock up on food, water, medical supplies and household items you will need. It take a little bit of your time and you do have to work hard at keeping your preps up to date and ready, but the pay off is 100 times what you put into it. Get you head out of the clouds and wake up, because our time is short. The dollar is on it's last leg and I don't think it will make it very far. And when(not if) hyperinflation hits us your dollar will not go very far at all. Can you even think of the way people will react to the price of milk going from $2.99 a gallon to $12.99 a gallon or worse. Now is the time to wake up and start stocking up.
I still think evil is just over the hill and our time is so very short.

  1. Okay Pete, I must admit I would've asked the same thing if I saw a seemingly sane individual walking through Walmart with 200 lbs of rice and beans, and a couple boxes of bullets LOL.

    But I don't get the idea that the worst is over and things are about to be fine. There are so many conflicting reports about what the economy is doing, but you can look in the foreclosure section of the newspaper and see that the worst isn't over. Same thing with the jobs section. Or the homeless shelter/food kitchens. Watch Freecycle and see how often there's a post for food, plain old food and winter clothes for children. Things aren't fine. We, me and you, we're lucky. We haven't had to deal with the joblessness, homelessness, hopelessness, but that doesn't make us ignorant of the fact that so many aren't as lucky as we.

    It's such a shame that we've turned into a 'seat of our pants' society. We scrape by and do just enough to stay ahead of the game. We survive by the seat of our pants and the grace of God. Or as you put it, "this man lives to be unprepared." I prepare to feel secure; both economically and nutritionally. My kids eat wonderful, nutritious food regardless of what's going on outside our front door.

  2. Just another thought...

    The sad thing about the whole situation is, had you been checking out with a dozen bags of Doritos, some Cheezy-Poofs, 5 or 6 racks of soda pop, a couple cases of beer, noone would have batted an eye...But if you're buying large amounts of 'real', recognizeable food, then there must be something going on. WWIII indeed.

  3. And let's not forget all the money wasted eating out. Big $$$ for almost everyone. Good post brother.

  4. "I think things are as bad as they are going to get, I think things are starting to get better".

    This guy either just got a new job or is an eternal optimist. Either way, he is not seeing what's going on in the world around us - the big picture.

    Drinking the Kool-aid when the fedgov says "unemployment numbers weren't as bad as was expected" and thinking that's good news, is just insane.

    Sadly, the majority of Americans get their news from the headlines and don't understand what's being written.

  6. I once had a lady question the seveal hunded pounds of rice I had on a cart at Sam's Club.
    She ask "Do you run an orphanage or something"?
    I just smiled and said "No Mam,I'm just tryin' to piss off FEMA"!
    Got one of those Deer in the Headlights looks..
