That's what I thought I'd need it for, 2012 ... or actually, I was under the delusion that it would happen before 2012. Thought I was really hot stuff and prepared. Joke's on me now, I'll be eating the old expired rusted cans of food that are out in the shed collecting dust. Which will probably poison me, so I'll croak and won't have to deal with the apocalypse

the stupid thing about all this, the part that just makes me angry and sick to my stomach, is that we currently have enough physical resources right here in this country, to grow all the food and create all the other stuff we need, including the steel, the rubber, the oil, the chemicals, medicines, care products like diapers and bottles, and toys and electronics and computer stuff. what in the sam hill is going on? we have all that right here, right now. if we were allowed to have our own businesses and build our own factories and create our own goods, the jobs and money would skyrocket and begin to recirculate around the globe.
Innovation in America is dying.
Not because people don't have 10 great ideas a day.
But because people don't trust the system not to steal it from them if they try.

Your assuming that those services will still be available. How many employees will show up for work? When the current derivatives market collapses and shuts down the top 6 banks in the US because they have over 200 Trillion in unaccountable funds invested in it, do you think people will show up to work when banks shut down?
