The Ant and the Grasshopper


Please READ the following link. 

READ IT!

And then REMEMBER what happened here during Katrina.

US to Experience Total Financial Collapse

Do some research on what exactly that means. Look at what happened in Argentina in 2001, for example. There are first hand accounts from people who saw the food riots, the utilities and banks fail, and the frightful behavior of roving bands of hungry people. It was like something out of a Mad Max movie.

I have been following King World News for a couple of years, 
and so far, they've been right on spot. 

I know some of you think I'm yelling "the sky is falling" 
but hope at least some of you will pay attention. 

Go to King World News and read the articles under "gold" 
- these are not just lunatics talking. 
These are world wide financial planners 
and they all say we're in for some trouble. 
When (and I've been watching) WHEN this happens, 
it's going to be crazy for at least a few months. 

First, the banks will close. 
You will not be able to get your money. 
The ATMs will not spit out cash. 
The doors will be locked. 
What will you do for money?

Stock up on supplies for your family. 
Rice, lentils, beans, canned foods and water. 
Canned foods are good because they already have water in them. 

We're coming into winter so please be sure 
you have plenty of warm clothes and blankets 
because the power could go for weeks at a time. 

You don't think that's possible?
Did you not read about the East Coast this year -
how long were they out of power?

If you are not near fresh water,
 I'd be storing plenty of water. 
You will be shocked at how much you must store.
 Find a spring in your area, if possible.
 Remember, you will be bicycling or walking there -- no gasoline. 

Get firewood, matches, and a way to cook
 - propane will be impossible - 
I suggest a shepherd's stove and wood 
or at least have a hand saw and axe 
if you live near woods. 

Your fire making skills will make you popular. 
Stock up on charcloth and jute. 
Be sure you have plenty of flint. 

Booze, cigarettes, matches will be good trade items. 

A weapon? Well, that's up to you.

 If you still menstruate, buy or make flannel cloth pads. 
Same with diapers. 
There will be no disposables.

Where will you shit when the toilets don't flush? 
Buy a shovel, you may be digging a pit.

I'm not saying you need a year's supply of food and water,
but at least a couple of months. 

Read some of those crazy prepper sites to get ideas that will work for you.

Again, remember Katrina. 
The government will NOT be here to help you. 
They're in a world of shit and can't even help themselves. 

If you are on meds, stock up.
 Pharmacies will close. 
Buy an extra pair or two of glasses.
ALL businesses will board up.

Those of you who think the government will take care of you . . . again, remember Katrina. There are still people who are displaced. There is no way the government will be able to function or take care of the ENTIRE country when food supplies run out. 

The grocery shelves will be empty in 2 days or less, depending on the size of your city.

Anyone can go to the LDS Bishop's Storehouse and purchase dry-packed food. 
You do not have to be LDS. 

There are places online that will tell you how much you need per day per person. 
If you need help, let me know.

If you have space, plant a winter garden now. 
Stock up. 
Prepare. 
Read about the Ant and the Grasshopper.

There's a bad wind blowing this way. 
I feel it. 
I've had this feeling once before and refused to fly on an airplane. 
My brother and father died in the crash. 
My son and I survived. 

Nobody can predict WHEN - but most likely sometime in the next year, 
sooner rather than later.

I hope I'm wrong... I really do.
But it won't cost you much to prepare.

Humor me...an old woman who has seen a lot.
I love you all and want to see you survive.

And if I"m wrong, we'll have a party and laugh about crazy old Rowan in 2016 ... 
and celebrate
