Actually, it has EVERYTHING to do with what we are discussing. Groceries are shipped from the warehouse to the store VIA TRUCK. Shutting down the trucks shuts down delivery.

Man....can we try to stir up any more scare tactics???? There's not going to be a shortage of food. Just like when wallstreet imploded the other day America didn't shut down...Come on... This should be filed under the same crap as the October 14th or was it the 15th or now it's the 16th Mass U.F.O. sightings and such... Just stop the non-sense use your common sense if you havent lost it by watching the news and other fear monging out-lets..
You haven't REALLY read all the posts, have you?
If people have no money because they have lost their jobs or their 401K's (down 50% for most people), they WON'T be able to BUY FOOD!
Preparing for the worst, while you still have some money left is PRUDENT, NOT SCARE TACTICS.
Look, no one is MAKING you do anything. You continue to live in your fairy-tale world. The rest of us will make sure that we take care of our families. My parents had to live through the depression, eating mashed potato sandwiches to survive, and that was on a GOOD Day. My parents lost their jobs, and also had no savings. Tens of millions of people were in the same boat. So, when the markets and banks CONTINUE to crash, you BELIEVE it WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN?
WHO is the one that has DELUSIONS?
I suggest it is YOU.
People aren't being scared, they are being realists and being prepared. If you don't like it, don't prepare.
You be the grasshopper. We'll be the ant. Now hop along and sing a merry tune, while the rest of us prepare for winter.

I remember all of this just before the year 2000. I remember how everything was going to fail......and it didn't.
This is also just like every bad snow storm we get and everyone heads to the store to stock up.
I am going to ride this out as I always do and not change anything that I am doing. I won't be stocking up on anything.

Might be a wise decision do stock up on a couple of bags of dry dog food.
Can you even imagine not eating for days, and considering a onion sandwich a good meal?
