When I was a young child I hated scrambled eggs, just despised them. My mom would cook them and I would have to finish my plate.
If there was any left I had to stay, or sometimes if I refused my mom would beat me. For those not old enough, yes we used to get the beat down for
things like that.
When my mother was dying she told me stories of how many times she faced starvation. She said that as a child they would dream of eggs, just one egg.
When she grew up and married my dad there was plenty of food, but she still could not get over the value of an egg. She was old, and said that it was
almost impossible for her to consume more than one at a sitting because of the intrinsic perceived worth to her. When I heard these stories my
childhood trauma vanished, as I now as an adult understood the why…
Historically eggs in the US have been a VERY cheap staple. I think maybe too cheap. We’ve mass produced eggs like no other country on earth.
Those poor chickens. I’m not trying to be Debbie Downer, I’m not trying to create a low vibe. I know we are headed into hard times. I love the
people on ATS and know most are above the curb. Please prepare, not just goods wise, but mentally.
I’ve read so much on Venezuela, they had crazy hyperinflation that they are just now coming out of. I don’t think the US will be exactly the same,
but I do think we will face some of the same struggles. Ours might not be so much production driven, but more logistical issue and the costs
associated with that. Also fertilizer is skyrocketing, that will affect feed for a lot of animals!
Here is a little bit on Venezuela.
Marilyn Alma, a mother of three, had to give up custody of her eldest child because she can no longer feed him. One week, a dozen eggs cost Alba three
days of wages; the next week, the cost doubles. Eggs, the cheapest source of protein, are now a distant dream for the vast majority of people. Ms.
Alma, who had once been a staunch government supporter, told me, “Maduro betrayed this country.”
