The Government is about to shut down, not a big deal unless you work for them because they don't do much for me outside of taxes. But a lot of stuff will be closed like US Parks, passport office, and other services. The sad part is that our troops will not get paid. We ask them to fight and die for some damn crazy stuff and now we are going to stop paying them, WTF??? So to get back to the point I am working on my preps like crazy and I hope you are too. I went shopping today and the cost of food is going up and as I was going home I stopped to get gas and just a few days ago it was $4.03 a gallon and today I paid $4.05 a gallon. I see $5.00 a gallon here by end of June or first of July....... Happy 4th!!!!! Shit we are in a big ass tub and someone pulled the stopper and the drain is pulling us down and it's happening very fast. I don't see the dollar making it much longer and I'm sure this country can hold on much longer. I think that every day we have with a dollar that still works is an extra day from the good Lord and we need to use each and every extra days we have to prep. My next few post will be on list for prepping like a what you may need to store. So keep an eye open for them. Have a good day and a great weekend.
