People , you got to watch this video. I don't think the US news is covering the severity of this disaster.

Thanks for sharing, but the "cry wolf" effect has me disillusioned.

In 2012, the economic collapse reported on " DEAD CROPS, EXTREME DROUGHT AND ENDLESS WILDFIRES ARE NOW THE NEW NORMAL IN AMERICA".


Our groundwater supplies are being rapidly depleted and giant dust storms are sweeping across some of our major cities.

infowars article

It's an infowars article that sources "the economic collapse" with michael synder. OP's video gives courtesy to one single person, michael synder of the economic collapse.

It would guess that OP's video author has been using "the economic collapse" as a source of much information.

This jumped out at me, because "the economic collapse " is a big part of why I stopped reading infowars. There was constant fear mongering on how close we were to economic collapse and every article urging one to stock up on food supplies and water.

Years past, and nothing major happened. At least not in the massive degree that michael synder puts it.

It's not bad to have some survival supplies, but if you took michael synder seriously, all your survival canned food would probably be near expiration right now..

I agree with the op. The recent natural disasters that have already occurred such as flooding, disease and drought all combined with the GND, is an excuse for the base level of prices to increase that could affect millions.

Where I work, the prices for average (bulk) food orders has already jumped by 15-30%. I see these prices as temporary BUT overall, setting the base prices up about 10-15% on many foods.


I know there are many who poo-poo the idea of stocking up on food but most of those IMHO are people who don't worry as much about their finances. Right now though would be a good time to stock up on things you would normally eat, just to save a few bucks.


I have already decided to grow a few more items in my garden that I don't normally grow in order to increase my independence from the grocery store. A few things I won't grow because I don't think the prices will rise as much as my laziness will tolerate the extra work. I.e. I won't grow potatoes. They're cheap, will probably remain cheap enough for me and I don't often eat them. Same thing for carrots.


Since I eat salad almost every day I will grow what I need for that. Of course, a ton of tomatoes which can be frozen, canned or dehydrated with ease. I have seen cabbage fluctuate from 2-6$ a lb, way to unstable for me so I will also grow a bunch of that because it also is easy to preserve and I eat a lot of it.


I also plan on doing more fishing and harvesting of animal products. There are many things people can do to ease their own food sourcing burden and stocking up when capable is just one of them.

It's spring!!!

No better time to start some veggies growing. Even in a few pots in a sunny window or on a sunny porch. Also a great time to learn to can and dehydrate, and just freeze foodstuffs in Ziploc freezer bags. Farmers markets will have an abundance of whatever is in season -- and cheap!

Tomatoes and peppers are easily grown in pots. Many/most herbs as well.

Summer squash and melons are easy to grow outside, but need plenty of room to spread. And will provide an amazing bounty for just one or two plants. Winter squash and eggplant too. Beans can be grown on trellises, or pretty much anything. Native Americans planted corn and squash and beans together -- the "Three Sisters" -- letting the beans grow up the corn stalk.

Great time to learn to cook too; and if you already cook, learn some new recipes -- especially for leftovers. Make those food dollars stretch!

And if you're REALLY ambitious and motivated -- and your zoning allows for it -- maybe try raising some chickens for fresh eggs. We've been talking about it, but haven't quite gotten there yet! It's times like these when I wish I still had my mom to pick her brain. She knew all about raising chickens.

As far as the flooding goes, we're a long way from 1993 levels of disaster yet. There's a lot of water left to melt off, but along with the melt comes a thaw, so some of that at least will soak into the ground.

Mostly, it's a matter of whether or not things rain a lot and where. If farmers can get into their fields in a reasonable fashion, then the flooding now won't matter as much. Remember, it does flood every spring. It's just a matter of where.

I worked with a guy years ago who took home empty buckets from a building site the painters binned , he filled them with sand/ ground , drilled holes in the bottom of for drainage and stacked them pyramid style in his paved back yard area opened the kitchen window and sprayed them at night with water all with minimal effort through the year

Chickens are so easy. They only need a safe place - so easy to build and not that expensive. For a two person family, 2-3 chickens is usually enough for egg production if you get the right breed. I am partial to Rhode Island Reds (RIR), they are egg-cellent layers, can be a meat bird and are very friendly. They are also disease resistant. I purchased Red star hens and other varieties before for the fun of it but they just never performed as well and the mites seemed to love them. If you have bugs, some corn and grass or weeds or even a dirt patch, you will have happy chickens. And they love leftovers!!!

There are literally thousands of free ideas on how to build a safe and cheap living facility for chickens. Jump in and get your chicks, the next month or so, many granges carry chicks. They won't start laying for 6 months or so. As I have stated before, stay away from the leg horn variety. They are bred for egg laying and are scrawny, easily infected with mites and such, and are skittish as heck. There are so many internet sites about any chicken issue you imagine, tons of info and help available at your fingertips. I live in the upper Northern mid-west and I am going to start keeping 2 chickens in my unfinished basement in addition to the many I keep in my barn; I will have fresh eggs all winter long and 2 hens aren't too terribly difficult to take care of. The same as taking care of two house cats I figure.

That is brilliant! Both the re-purposing of the buckets AND the pyramid. What a great way to maximize growing space!!!

I'll bet it looks pretty cool too when it's all full and lush and green.

Thank you!

We're lucky to be zoned for livestock. The area around us has been developed like crazy the last 30 years, but our zoning hasn't changed -- thank goodness! So we want to give it a try. We have an old kind of screened lean-to that we built years ago when we were overrun with feral cats and their kittens, but I've been using it for a gardening shed lately. We're thinking we can re-purpose it for chickens.

You've got me excited now! I think hubby and I need to look up some videos today...

Thank you again!

If he is sourcing Michael Synder (of the economic collapse), then I would take everything with a grain of salt. Synder is a doom-and-gloom pusher. Every year we are on the verge of collapse in his point of view..

He had crazy return on veg from that little area all without the back-break of digging up ground , the stocks went in the bottom of a empty bucket and he turned one inside another when done

I worry about my finances. Well not so much worry as tend to it.
My portfolio i s not too bad. Could be better.

But my canned goods... well thats limited to mostly tomato products. Chopped diced whole crushed paste you get the idea.

Where do you live that cabbage was 6.00 a pound?
Never... not in the USA... Sorry but no one is going to believe that.

I wouldnt worry about this.

Wise advice i keep a box of dry noodles and soups that just need water and some gas cannisters just to be on the safe side and rotate them regularly for the sell by date 20 bucks will keep you for week if you are wise
