Sunday Reading - In the Long Slow Decline the Sustainer is King
Watch the below video and then ask yourself how long these shortages have been going on in Venezuela.
Venezuela has been sinking for years. This latest round of news items about shortages and such is just the same old story bringing itself back into the stream. I can remember articles about professional shoppers and government price controls with shortages from years back.
Think about it. Unless you happen to have a tap into a steady stream of government cash and are able to build your own massive storage buildings how much food can you store? At a little more than 2 years of basic supplies I could no more find a spot to put another pail of rice in at the moment than I could convince Obummer to veto Obummercare.
Oh sure I got plenty of storage space that isn't climate controlled now all I need to do is start putting in heaters and AC units eh?
1 year? 2 years? even 3 or 4? Had you started using your stores in Venezuela when these shortages came around you would now be standing in these ques with the rest of the non-prepared.
What is happening there may not be a complete collapse but it's damn sure close. They are simply a couple of steps down further on the ladder than we are.
The key to surviving this long slow grind is learning to produce your own food. Growing, harvesting and grinding your own grains. By passing the government controls and third party vendors as much as is humanly possible.
Or you other option is to start the clock on your eventual que time.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
