If this goes through, it is definitely a problem, like you should go buy extra food early. As in for real.

I'm surprised to see this here, I would think with all that we have seen over the years and all that is discussed here people would have been
preparing or just this occasion or even some worse ones.
Since the housing market collapsed I have been stocking up on can food, and donating excess in order to make sure my supplies are not out dated if and
when something happens.
I have also invested in zero energy items easy to replicate but fundamentally necessary for survival in the event of Power out since the New England
fall snow storm knocked power out for two weeks. Such as lanterns, lantern oil, wicks, wood stove, clay pot water filtration. Keep in mind these
things help in a bankrupt economy as I can get firewood far easier then I can pay a over inflated gas/electric bill. I can not make gas, nor make
money from no work but I can go into the woods and get wood. I can make or find natural oils, I can collect rain water and I can grow food.
I love electricity for all the things it provides, but I love more the ability to take the required things for survival fully into my own hands with
zero dependency on another. Any long term event we can expect that new Brita filters for water, pellets for pellet stoves, solar panel and battery
parts may no longer be available and yet the need for what they could provide would remain, however investing the technology that allowed our
ancestors survive and sustain for thousands of years may not be such a bad idea, after all they did a great many things with very little
I'm however not suggesting we go native and run around in stick huts, but simply use our heads be inventive and most of all appreciate the wealth of
knowledge our ancestors have collectively left behind that has allowed the human race to thrive as such.
