Who tends to crops if the people dont anyway?
It's so simple, there are more of us than there are of them but still we cower in fear like little scared bitches?
What the hell is wrong with us?
In an emergency (or in this case even a non-emergency) I do not want/expect any help from the US Government, State of Missouri, the County, or nor any
of their contracted representatives or organizations. Likewise, I want no help or assistance from any United Nations force, or any foreign
governments or their contracted representatives.
I own a lot of land and have crops as well as dairy. I will stay with my farm, my animals and home to take care of the problem best I can with my
neighbors as we have already arranged. I’ll take care of my family and likely a good many more around me by using a barter system and fair trade.
I don’t expect an evacuation or rescue and I won’t comply should one be ordered.
I want nothing from them - they are entitled to nothing from me.
However, I do have a genuine fear of the government taking what I have stockpiled and ruining my plans for survival in one fell swoop by taking my 3
years of food and goods for the “good of the people”
Great plan by the way to take my 3 years of supplies and goods so that the idiots in the city can all live for another 3 days… Then we can all
suffer and starve equally – it is the American way now right?
No winners, no losers, no valedictorians, no failures, just all getting along equally sharing the wealth... I say BS to that philosophy survival is a
contest like anything in life, there are winners and losers.
I have worked my butt off for the last several (20+) years; planning, saving, spending frugally, so that me and my family will be taken care of in an
emergency SHTF scenario. I own my land in title and deed and owe no one anything.
I have farm land and dairy animals like I said. 140 acres - I certainly can’t eat it all nor can I do all the work should I lose electricity.
However, that doesn’t make it any less mine. I would sell my milk and sell my beans in trade for help with the work or even items I needed. I
would likely give a good deal away rather than waste it too… However, I'm not giving it to the government for them to waste.
No one will be confiscating anything;
be it foodstuffs or livestock.
I chose to live this lifestyle for a reason - my own guarantee of survival, not so the dip#s in government can take it so all the mindless masses of
consumers who live in the city (who BTW who did nothing to help prepare for themselves for an emergency) can live another few days.
All I have to say is read the grasshopper and the ant.
The only tragedy is that the government with a decree or even a majority vote locally can come in and because they feel sorry for the grasshoppers who
if left to their own devices would starve force the ants to also starve equally.. This is a great way to solve a problem I guess for government
I’m sure I am on numerous lists anyway so here it is in black and white - all I have to say is if they show up to steal (which is exactly what
confiscate means for those who don’t understand)
my stuff they had better bring a lot of body bags for themselves.
First word about confiscate and order or decree and I will shoot the first one to touch a cow or fire up a combine then I don't think they'll have
too many more volunteers for a few minutes at least.
Then while they get their crap together - I'll burn the fields myself and start killing the cattle. I'd rather that than they use it for thier
I may in the end die or go to jail but no way am I going to be a bystander to theft to a lifetime of saving and of 3 years worth of my food and
supplies so that we can string along the masses in the city for a few more day at best.
Screw that nonsense - If one doesn't have a plan; one dies!
Pretty simple also is that - if your "plan"
is to rely on the government at any level you are going to die because they will do everything to
save themselves first. You will get the leftovers if that and there will be some huge strings attached.
They will scrape a huge chunk of everything off the top like they do now with taxes to ensure the “continuity of government” which means of course
feeding and supplying themselves.
I am prepared, I have no pity for those who are not.
I hope I don’t have to engage our law enforcement (decent guys for the most part) or soldiers – but rest assured I will and after 24 years of
training and about 10 years of combat experience I am pretty good at it.
