Everything is getting more costly and wages are stagnant, just like you said, people are so desperate that they just suck it all up.
I highly recommend you vote with your wallet.
If you have access to land your family owns, start a garden group,
or if you have a big backyard or a family member does.
Use Heirloom or open pollinated seeds.
The ppl that don't work much, get percentage based on how much
they help in the garden.
Planting, watering, weeding, pest control, picking.
Agree as a group on the tasks, and those who do most of the work
get most of the crop.
Look for things you can do without, such as cable TV,
start a hunting group an get some rabbit, squirrel, and deer.
You can make jerky from the meat if you do not want to rely
on freezers as the grid may go down, and gas may skyrocket
during a mideast war.
Make a solar dehydrator for most of the veggies and meat.
Do every damn thing you can to not give "them" a penny.
If enough ppl do it, "they" will feel it in time, and you become
Pool your resources, but do your best to NOT look like a militia,
or your going on a list.
If you have neighbors nearby you trust, have one keep their
internet access and the rest of you turn it off and Coop pay the
one that is on.
Anything your group can do for themselves and save money
start doing it now.
Decide what ppl your group needs and go recruit them, or
hand out the needed tasks to the ppl in the group.
Don't protest, don't raise hell, think out of sight is out of mind.
Watch "The End of America" on youtube by naomi wolf.
She was referring to Bush mostly, but it is just as true of if not
more so now.
Good Luck to you all !
