We've been theorizing and talking about this for years. Frankly, I, personally don't care anymore. This country is inevitably going to get a reset. I honestly can't wait.

if you REALLY believed in global warming and socialism, wouldn't sabotaging the grid be logical?

There would be a loss of population, and wealth inequality would shrink overnight.

After talking with an electrical engineer that contracted to the US to assist with repairing the electrical grid after a hurricane.

He said our grid was atrocious, and would be condemned in Europe, hearing that from someone that works on things like that made me realize that our electrical grid is a mess and ripe for attack.

Real world answer, old folks like me and mine who have medical issues will be the first to go.


C'est la vie.


It's been a good life.

One thing to consider:

If “the grid” went down for six months (or more), there are many people who would be unable to get the medications they need to survive, and many could suffer, or die.

Just try explaining to your doctor why you want a six month stockpile of prescription medications and see the response.

You might get a referral for psychiatric evaluation!

Although some prescriptions are available as 90 day supplies (generally through mail-based prescription services), I don’t know of any that are available in 6 month quantities.

As well, many prescription medications have short shelf lives, which would require people to cycle large quantities of drugs as the potency of those pills decline.

The sun and light of my life needs meds.

If things go south, I'll just go where she goes. She's followed me through my military and civilian career. It'd be time for me to follow her. Couldn't do it without her.

Hey, with my tachychardia and the attacks I had in the past, I never figured I would live past thirty. I'm sixty three now, I am satisfied I have lived this long, my dad died at fifty, my sister at forty one. My biggest hope is that I have all my marbles when I die, I would rather die without having to suffer much or having forgotten all my kids and friends.

Had a 6 way bypass about 6 years ago.

I take so many pills in the morning that I rattle until breakfast settles!

But I could probably live a year or two without all but one of those little devils.

A non-functional thyroid is no bueno for a long life if untreated.

And although I could substitute a veterinarian for a physician to get the drug I need, if the doggy doc can’t get me my pills when the lights go out...

I’ll be going out too!

Wait? Most can hardly afford a burger? According to Trump we have the best economy ever, everyone is getting huge raises, he lowered taxes. How can that be? lol With that being said IDK how most can feasably prepare for 6 months right away. We have been stocking water for a while but it does have a shelf life. It's tough. Always err on the side of caution.

Dr Richard Alan Miller has been saying there is (maybe) going to be a CME Wednesday, Dec. 12th. I've lived through too many doom dates to believe in this one, but I wanted to give everyone a head's up. Just in case.

It might be Economical, Climate, or a War situation. or a combination of all three. My doom box cant think up anything else, but Merkel told the same thing to the Germans, and May said the same to the British only she said it might be Brexit related. But personally I think that Putin has had enough.

A critical item that I haven’t seen mentioned is water. Parts of the country, no problem. A large part of the country it’s a major problem. No water, you die.

I certainly hope it's not dire.

I don't have the means to prep for 6 months.

Might as well tell me to prepare for 6 months of driving by buying a Ferrari.


Just get 2 or 3 cans of beans, vegetables etc off brands are 55 cents a can. every time you shop for groceries. It wouldnt be ideal but bet most could live off of 1 can and a bottle or 2 of water a day,throw in a protein bar some vitamins a fish anti biotic or 2 and it would give you a decent chance if nobody fooks with you.

Looks like they've got reasons to suspect the electrical grid will be targeted at some point in the not too distant future.

On a related note, the most prepared group in America are the Mormons. Their church has been telling members to have 6 months supplies on hand at a minimum for some years now.


Mormons would be most prepared as far as food, I'm not sure much else. The ones I've met seem to lack a lot of common sense.

If water pressure holds up I have 7 months capability...

if it doesn't I have 3 months, water is the main weak point with most preppers.

Im not Mormon, and I have well over 2 years worth of food, solar and a a large battery bank, 75 gallons of fuel, 1 large Honda generator, and a small 700 watt gen that will run 13 hours on a gallon of gas. Buckets of preserved wheat berries, a bosh flour mill, and all kinds of goodies. Oh and all types of guns, and a couple hundred pounds of ammunition, including 50 cal magnums. real large Halon fire extinguishers, barrels of preserved water, and a water tower to boot. Barrels of kidney beans, ponto beans, and jasmine ( my favorite) rice. Im as ready as Ill ever be
