Here we go again with the liberal/conservative b*&&$#!T again. That sort of thinking is one of the reasons THEY continue to maintain a stronghold over the population. Some people just don't get it. And though it was veiled, I caught what you were saying. Most of us black AMERICANS do care about everyone else.

We all have guns and know how to use them, we rely on our nieghbors and know them. The looting populace who don't know how to take care of themselves won't get far from their cities. Look at Katrina and New Orleans. I just feel sorry for the silly liberals in the cities who think they live with people who care about everyone else, they're going to get eaten alive.

You big city folks, suicide would be a humane way to end your suffering in such a scenario. Send your young good looking wives and daughters down here. We'll look after them.

What kind of statement is that?
Do you automatically assume that all city residents are vultures that will steal your food?
Where's the sense of community at this place?

really!!!! I live in CT and where were the looters when we lost power To the hurricane last year for a week then again to a freak snow storm around October for a second week! People were super nice! In one town I know of they opened the high school for people to get a shower and to feed them. I even durring the October outtage went tricker treating with my youngest sister, people had their generators running and were more than happy to see us! probably the last time in my adult life I will make out as good with the candy haul as I did, yes they were so happy even I got a sack full!
what You stereotype is the millionaire new englanders, not the typical poor folk, I grew up in this state with my 2 sisters and single ma on less Than 30k (a lot of people here are just hanging on cause everything is so pricey!$) not only do I know how to survive but I've also survived new England extreme heat waves and bitterly cold winters, I know if its cold out to stay dry and stay warm and if its humid drink water and hit the swimming hole! on top of that I can fight off sickness because lets face it, this is probably one of the most flu/fever/bug/germy hub of the world, no matter if tshtf situation came down to pandemic or power outages ect I say new England is your safest bet!

OK, I have two questions:
1.) If things were to come to that, why would you even WANT to surivive?
What can you realistically look forward to?
It's not like you're going to live forever. So why even want to prolongue your existence if all you have to look forward to is fear of violence, famine, sundry infections and diseases, pain, etc. - and in the end you die anyway?
2.) What are your plans for WHEN the dollar - and the euro - do not collapse?
It's a perfectly serious question.

We have gardens, allotments, land & natural water sources here in the uk, so we'll be able to live off the land quite comfortably. People managed to live off the land before consummerism, and we will manage again if necessary.
America doesn't look after it's own, so I expect it to get messy there if anything was to happen.
