Wall Street Warns Americans To Begin Stockpiling Food


prisonplanet.com

The New York Times recently told its more wealthy readers to consider buying a rural cottage, or even log cabin, to ride out the water and food riots that militarised police forces are preparing and training for, and now Wall Street recommends its readers to begin stockpiling rice and cereals.

How bad could global food shortages ultimately get? The lives of many hundreds of millions who have never known hunger before are threatened.

Time to stockpile, buy ammo, and make alliances with people you know you can trust. Make plans to flee cities and hunker down in a rural home or cabin. Start thinking about water purification and for god's sake... use your money now while it still has value!

Ummm....it's not necessarily the New York Times that is saying this...it's someone plugging a book:



It is not that of Barton M. Biggs, the former chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley. Yet in Mr. Biggs’s new book, “Wealth, War and Wisdom,” he says people should “assume the possibility of a breakdown of the civilized infrastructure.”

www.nytimes.com...

This article and the MSM association caused enough curiosity (and a bit of anxiety) to warrant my hunting down the original article.

Needless to say, I am a bit less concerned.

Still, the rice shortage appears to be real and discussion regarding this subject should take place. The rich shouldn't be the only ones prepared. And let's face it...if we do start going to hell in a handbasket, we just might have the edge....

Whatever you do, never listen to these Wall St Thugs....because they will always give you advice based solely in filling their pockets and never in the interest or welfare of the people. Know, that there is no shortage of food, suddenly this disease or sickness has caught on around the world....it is only because of stock brokers who are now playing casino bets on world food production and hoarding food to mimic the peak-oil thugs.

Never again fall prey to these commodity sharks who will even sell crap as the wonder drug of youth and really get away with it, because suckers are far too many to catch the joke. Work the Soil and grow your own Food.

I hope this is all over nothing, or at least very premature, but I have to tell you that I have begun buying a few extra canned goods on each shopping trip. And this weekend will definately be taking an ammo inventory.

Welcome home, Centurium.
Things are looking rather ugly, arent they? We are n ow headed towards the darkness in that deep dark hole at the end of the barrel, not knowing where things are going to end up.

I dont have weapons. If i did i'd have used it
by now. So here i sit not knowing whats going to happen to us, in this messy dispair and wondering where the next shoe is going to fall.

Think MaCain is a good choice? Hillary? "Barry"? I think its too late, the damage has been done.


BTW. i declare i must be stupid. Ok, where does this [supply/demand] stuff come from? There's something here i am not getting. We were the "haves", now we are zeroing in with the "have nots", just what is it that caused the snowball rolling? The total destruction of the United States?
Oh, other countries have had the fly thing and extended bellys going for a long time, but US???

Can anyone offer me an explanation that DOES NOT make this government culpable? Have we just been breeding all over the place and now the demand exceeds the supply? Or is it that this government, along with the elite, oil barons, and countless wealthy members of the "Lets screw America Society" are making their wildest dream come true?

Or the crops arent growing?
or what the heck, just what the heck is it that is not been catapulted by the good old boys in Washington and overseas???

Is this government INNOCENT of this shortage? That is my question.

Thank you.

I beg everyones pardon for my severe incapacity of figuring this out- and i'm not joking. Please help.

neocons TRYING to trigger a revolution in this country????????

This nothing more than propaganda I watch the Markets everyday for fun, and one of the issues been discussed is the so call food Shortage actually they are calling for Americans to stop the hysteria because is not food shortage hitting US at all.

So this playing into the hands of those that are getting away with boosting commodities for profits.

And guess what we the regular Americans are the ones paying the price.

They did want us to start spending, perhaps all the food makers and distributors would like to see the kind of profits the oil industry has been seeing.

You know what, you bring a great point here, this could be just propaganda so Americans start spending their stimulus deceiving checks.

Make the people scare so they can go and spend on food items.

Boost the economy and the markets profits.


Actually by the time the first checks comes around the prices on food will be very expensive thanks to the food shortage hype.

I am inclined to believe that there are some moronic financial folks that actually have such a god-awful hard-on for wealth they really don't consider themselves to be raping the nation, and by proxy the world.

Hopefully, they will suffer some kind of painful rash until they relent. Yeah, right.

There is no food shortage in the U S.There is no oil shortage either.Fuel prices are falsly supported by speculaters and a devalued dollar.People in Texas and other border states are driving across to Mexico where they can buy diesel fuel for 2 dollars a gallon.That's half what it is in the U S.

We are getting screwed by the money men.

where are the governmental authorities whose job it is to protect the public welfare both at the national and international levels?

Is this genocide?

What's being done about this? Nothing.

Regardless if "this interest" or "that interest" is trying to manipulate people into stockpiling food for whatever reason they might have, there can be no harm done by being prepared. Even if the food shortage were to turn out to be complete hype and not even real, having a supply of emergency food (of any size) is a VERY good idea.

The human body can do without many things, but food and water are not among them. Don't prepare an emergency food store because of some hype in the media, do it because it simply makes sense to do so and one day it may save the lives of you and your families.

You are right Dg they are doing nothing because the fed helping devaluate the dollar to save their own arses are causing the Global market mess and the oil prices increases.

It seems that our own corporate ridden government is working for their own kind not for the people.

But that is ok, they just bring us another war and take the minds and harts away from their corrupted agendas.

You are right, nothing is being done because when people stand up against such things as speculating on commodities, they are shouted down has Marxists or Socialists.

However, when the Decider and Cheney drive an agenda driven war for oil so they can line their pockets, Congress and the American citizenry turn the other cheek.

Does anyone know what the proper way to stockpile potable water is? I'm guessing that's the next 'fear of the month'.
