This is quite telling. Looting is not far from the minds of many here, though granted, most recognize some boundaries. Many of the "family" folk flat
out admit that when it comes to their family there ain't no boundaries. This leads me to believe that from day one of the scenario pa is already
sizing-up who they plan to have support them through the hard times ahead, that somehow their having a family provides a sense of entitlement and
built-in justification for whatever misdeed may be deemed appropriate. They may be already planning how to get to my beans, rice, and cans of spam
before turning over their first rock looking for earthworms because they got "little ones" and mine are mostly grown-up.
I expect anyone here and reading this forum are already making better preparedness plans than most folk you will find around town. At least-wise they
got firearms at the ready. I am sure, though, that there are a few with the same justifications that are not the least bit prepared. Even if it
occurred to them they should be stocking supplies away they didn't do that because little Johnny needed an X-Box and those plug-in games get
expensive. Those people with "families" may be the ones we got to watch out for when things look like they might get tough as they've got no bounds
when it comes to protecting their herd.
Besides just making my own preparations to have a few essentials on-hand it looks like I better have a plan for de-moralizing the opposition when I
see them taking notice of how we are getting by. Kinda glad I live across the border from most of you all who mostly never had to "rough it." Most
folks down here have had to deal with adversities on a regular basis and kind of know what having good neighbors is all about, sharing, bartering,
trading favors. Food is growing all around us, other than in our gardens, things that most of you folks would never think about eating.
My family is occupying three homes here on the same street - eight people living in three large homes that are built like fortresses. We've got over
6,000 gallons of water in our storage tanks. Just added up that we got nine bathrooms for eight people - hadn't thought about that before. Also got
about 400 liters of LP gas and no real need for heating. And about Mexicans not allowed to have guns, not true, we're just generally not allowed to
carry them on the streets. You guys about got that wall built along the border yet? We'd appreciate it if you snap it up some, OK?
Just kidding. Best of luck. Good bushcrafting skills!
