Your trolls are losing faith in you. Don't bring god or jesus into this, they can't help you either. I bet you don't even go to church & give your 10%. Who you going to blame my post on? tip, LiG, pale rider, etc... your list goes on & on to who you'll blame it on who/what/where/him/her/it? I can post at anytime I feel like it. I'll bet you pick names out of a hat as to what times people post or don't post. Your a loser, look at your life on here. You have no life if your on here 24/7 posting everywhere about anything just to see your many names on here.
Walt, you really need a visit to a therapist. Not only are you a child molester, you're losing your grip on reality.

<quoted text>
People "in their right mind" are no threat to me at all. It's those who failed to make preparations and who become desperate... willing to kill someone to get something to eat... that I worry about in that kind of situation.
You won't have to worry about me... you'll be worrying about yourself and your family, when your city runs out of supplies in three days or less. If your family were literally starving, what would you be willing to do to get food? Steal? Kill? Doesn't that person you're contemplating stealing from or killing have the right to defend himself or the supplies he acquired for his family?
<quoted text>
Ammo, yes. Not much use for bombs. Not trying to hide anything. Just trying to protect what I have.
Tony--exactly what are you preparing for?

You allude to some "overwhelming" catastrophe. Such as?

Even with an acceptance of such an eventuality, your choices are interesting at best, but way off-base when examined.

There have been fear-mongers for decades willing to sell products to the gullible--from backyard bomb shelters, to Y2K food, water and electricity to Glenn Beck's vague "food insurance."

Your basic premise is that in the absence (or overwhelming) of government shortages of basic goods and services will result and spur hysterical fights for food--necessitating individual preparations.

Consider instead the possibility of preparation in the form of rural organization. Rural areas have long been able to work together through such things as electric cooperatives (sounds practically communistic, doesn't it), extension offices and the like. You can store up a certain amount of canned provision, and protect it with a gun--but in the case of massive food shortages, wouldn't it make more sense to be able to organize to produce food? Seems more rational.

In short--it looks like you are motivated by hysterical thinking and there are better ways to go.

George--I don't know if GJL is Walt or not. But, you continually refer to the poster known as Walt as a child molester. For the record, I have asked you repeatedly for something like a court record to support this obsession of yours.

You have repeatedly referred me to a long chain of previous Topix discussions, but nothing that really indicates that some person, posting under the name of Walt, is in fact a child molester.

Now--so far as I can tell, Walt has drifted on to other pursuits--as far as Topix is concerned. And yet, you remain obsessed with him. When Walt was posting, the two of you managed to make any number of threads your personal playgrounds for hurling insults.

All of which is to say, that I see a good bit of obsession on your side here--and frankly, it is tiresome and not conducive to rational conversation.

And it will be difficult to organize when the cell towers aren't working, since so many have turned to cell phones for their home phones.

The fact that you defend that documented felon says a lot about you, Reader.
As for "obsession," you need a dictionary. My swipe at the poster was for his engaging in Walt's tactics.

Anything that causes society to break down. It took over 6 weeks for the government to get to some Sandy victims.
You allude to some "overwhelming" catastrophe. Such as?
Major geomagnetic storm, small asteroid, Yosemite caldera eruption, major Eastern US earthquake, even your run-of-the-mill blizzard, to name a few.

Nothing quite so fancy... My food stores are entirely dry and canned goods available at any grocery. These keep for at least two years (though I only have enough for 5 or 6 months), and I rotate my stock. I also have a well with a manual pump, and about 15 cords of firewood, lots of batteries for flashlights, radios, etc., a few solar lights, cooking fuel, toilet paper, and of course... duct tape and baling wire :)
Your basic premise is that in the absence (or overwhelming) of government shortages of basic goods and services will result and spur hysterical fights for food--necessitating individual preparations.
Have you seen what happens when they call for a few inches of snow? Hell, during the '78 blizzard, we were without power for three weeks. Luckily we'd just had the oil tank filled right before, and we had an open well for water. And everything we ate came from a can for those three weeks. I remember my lessons.

And as someone else pointed out, the government advertises preparedness. I choose to exceed their recommendations.

In the long term, more than 5 or 6 months, yes. But then you have to cut down trees, clear the stumps, plow the fields, plant, wait, etc. To me it was easier to just spend a couple grand. Some neighbors are doing the same. I have enough extra of some things that I can share, and will as long as MY family doesn't do without.
In short--it looks like you are motivated by hysterical thinking and there are better ways to go.
You lefties always think you know better what other people should do. Please, by all means don't let me deter you from going with your "better ways"... Maybe we'll compare notes after.

You could rig up a steam powered alternator for when you are burning that wood. Also shuttle car or fork lift batteries to store power. Wire them up into parallel banks of 12 volt.
