That idea won't fly. You need to step forwards today. It's the classic Pol quip that " we don't want no one, nobody sent." There has to be some
trust, if I'm going to put my B$%tt on the line, along side someone. Boobs coming out of the closets, spouting Constitutional dictates, ain't a goin
to ring my chimes. Hopi Indians keep food, which we cannot digest, for an apocalypse. LDS practitioners keep a year's supply of food that Round Eyes
can digest. I don't know their plans to keep it for themselves.
I know that I should have more food stored than I do. When Mt. St. Helen's blew in 1980, I ran out and bought $240 worth of staples, including some
gallon jugs of wine and cigarettes, although I don't smoke. "Trading Stock, no less". We only got an inch or so of the Ash, and I was made fun of
for the next six months, as we slowly worked through my Mt St. Helens grub. Lotsa Mt. St. Helen's Pancakes and such.
So you better be part of something, long before you have to turn into some kind of armed forager. I'd rather beg for a few slices of bread, wearing
my NRA patch, then try to stuff a gun barrel into some house Frau's face, and demand it.
IN the latter event, you'll get your bread ration, plus a bullet in your back, before you get down to the end of the block.
My late father recounted how he, and his two buddies did stuff M-1 Garand barrels into Frenchies faces for a chicken or some other foods. The Frogs
didn't want to have anything to do with our U.S. Occupation Script, but Dad said he always, always, paid for anything they appropriated from the
locals. Otherwise they would have been court martialed. The occupying force pays it's troops in some kind of script, and then has to back up it's
value, with force or the threat of force.
Cartons of American Cigarettes, OTOH, traded with the Frogs, straight across. And there was very real starvation in the hills and valleys of southern
France, up behind Marseilles, after the Germans were finally driven off by the battle of the Rhone Valley. American relief food stuffs came up their
RR, way too slow for most of those kids.
