NOW REAP THE SUPERMOON

Nothing like the occult to awaken the illuminati cabal for a good high holy day blood bath. Not that I put much stock in these coincidences but that's not to say others may. So maybe it was coincidental that there was a nice blood bath bracketing the supermoon from Saturday night. What's ahead is more interesting to this blogger.

First, I'll briefly comment on the increased risk of an open conflict in the Middle east breaking out. In either Syria, Egypt, or Iran. These areas are absolute tender boxes and don't think the MIC isn't drooling at this possibility. If they want it then I think they will need an ignition event, so be on your toes.

I've noticed that the cost of essentials are getting higher and higher. Started prepping and found something quite startling since I don't regularly do my DD comparison shopping. A can of chicken noodle soup was five for a dollar just a few years on sale. Tonight it was a buck forty AT A WALLY WORLD!!!! One can of chicken nasty noodle soup a buck forty.

I am going to make it a personal mission now to watch how quickly these prices begin rising and start preparing  rapidly if the need arises. For now I am at about 4 months of food on hand, and will just add weekly to my preparing. I hate the idea of prepping. It seems bizarre but unfortunately I find the necessity more compelling now.

A trigger event could remove the food from shelves and create a "just in time" nightmare scenario so just be aware. Join the prepper nuts is my motto now.

As far as the casino goes avoid the noise right now and just concentrate on accumulating the miners if you're still paper trading. The real task at hand is shoring up your weakness and accumulating your physical metals...gl.

  3. Kli,

    Now that your an admitted "Prep-per" the question I often ask myself is "How much is enough" and for how long? I don't mean to be snarky but one could make themselves nuts thinking through the multitude of scenarios. My thoughts are three to six months worth of grub and a means to purify H2O.... Your thoughts on the matter, as always, are greatly appreciated.

  4. Tom i think a game changer in this is the just in time food chain/ urbanization/ critical water/ digitalized delivery vulnerability/ etc etc etc...most of these were either mitigated or didn't even exist twenty years ago......so to your question now.....if you are going to prep then you MUST assume that this is temporizing ONLY to get to the "other side" of whatever the shortage event was......so the answer is not black and white......the longer the better is the short answer....but some people dont have the money or space......its complicated and here is an example of how to choose your course. Suppose you only have a one or two year hyperinflationary/severe stagflationary event that resolves with a return to a degree of normalcy.....if you have a large store of quality food then you can save yourself a lot of money and still keep some of your store for the SHTF scenario.....for example.....you may buy the freeze dried boxes of food or MREs .....AND.....in addition.....quantities of food that you can store that you LIKE to consume as they near expiration and KEEP in a certain quantity replentishing as you consume....like an inventory control.......btw most of the boxes of freeze dried food is a 25 year shelf life.....google it....Costco has great boxes for six months of it.....anyway maybe I'll go into more detail in a post this weeks

  5. btw tom i am saying that i as a prepper is assuming the world is NOT coming to an end and that we WILL make through.....i could be wrong and that too......hehehehehehe

  6. Personally I'm in the same boat thinking we come out of this but it could be a rough few months if stuff collapses and it might not be bad to have 3-6 months of food on hand. The difficult thing is water as it takes up so much space! Also if we have a shortage of water I think things are going to turn so ugly so quickly we won't know what hit us and no amount of prepping will have you ready. Land with your own well would be ideal but how many of us can really pull that off? :) So I'm trying to balance out having a decent amount just in case, but also trying not to go overboard with it all. It's a tough balancing act! But buying a couple extra of stuff each trip is a good method.

  7. Don't forget the mini-bottles for barter...easier to use than the coins.

    1. everyone needs to think of the barter......use various items to accumulate......even cheaper silver and gold jewelry....booze keeps well too

    2. Trouble with booze... After seeing my lifetime saving vaporize... I'll be tempted to drink the bottle of Jack in storage. :)

  8. Just bought some more SSRI, fell under 13 had to pick up some more. Now, I am truly scared if Kli is prepping as well. Its going to get dicey! Running out of cash to buy these dips in the miners. Sad thing is that there probably be more more turn down to have a complete washout........sucks!

    2. I picked up some physical silver Friday. Looking to buy a 1/2 ounce coin of gold soon. All you can do is add to the collection.

    3. Where do you buy physical gold? I have plenty of cash right now and would like to buy some for insurance.

    4. on line gainesville coin site google it

      Delete
    5. I buy off of ebay, coin shops, flea markets, auctions. You can also place an add on craigslist buying silver at 20 times face value. Lots of people are willing to sell you their physical at a discount. I tend to buy 90% silver pre 1965 coins, because most people tend not to fake them and there is barely any premium.

      If you want larger quantities like 100, 1000oz bars, Gainesville coins is pretty good.

      It just depends on how much you want. I tend to buy smaller amounts but spread it out through the year unless the price is really low like in December when I bought alot more.

  9. Water is one thing I'll have no problem with. I live in Seattle.

    As for food... That thrive kit at Costco looks great. $1000 is nothing. But where on earth will I store all that food? And furthermore, how will I protect the food if the collapse happens? I'm not a gun person.

  10. Jay,
    I purchase a years worth of food for two people. I bought a package similar to Thrive from Sams Club. I thought I would have a problem storing it as well as I live in the People's Republic of NYC! I have a storage container where I live where all the food is stored away nicely. It is not as big as you might think. Like Tom, I bought a Katadyn Water Purifier that can process 13000 gallons of water ($200). I also purchase a solar power battery charger($40). Plus I stocked the shelves of our home with as much canned goods as we can.
    Now I am looking for a solar power kit that is portable and a couple of other things.

    I too am not a gun person but I would really like to have one just in case. The laws around here make it very hard to get one legally.

  11. I have been prepping food-wise since 2011, and have to feed 6 with adult-type appetites. Storage space & water is not a problem for me, but the winter cold is should electricity be lost for awhile.
    I am going to start experimenting with some type of solar system this summer. What bothers me about gasoline powered generators is that they can use a lot of gas & where you do my more in a crisis.
    Food prices have gone up here.

    1. I also have a gas generator but I am going to convert it to either propane or NG. All you need is carburetor converter. However, i am trying to hook up a solar panel to a Duracell 1800w powercell. If I cant get it to work I could have a portable solar power generator that can generate a decent amount to power.

  12. Miners beatdown continues to be relentless... they REALLY do not want us in this trade :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I know you can buy a generator that runs right off the natural gas line with an automatic transfer switch, but they are expensive.
    I like the idea of Solar power & you can buy the components to make a portable one yourself.

  14. Just to complain, anv reported good news and guidance but was down 5% this morning. With gasoline falling, earnings should improve. When you say they want us out of this trade, you are not kidding. Food prices way up here. Try to buy & store when they have buy l/get 1 free on staples.

  15. Sister, this is part of why I moved from HL to AUQ with their earnings going to be announced. Sure it could pop 5% but do not want to take a 5% hit either on my options. Better to take a small loss and move to something else. I like AUQ, just wish I could buy 2014 JAN Calls instead of DEC 2012. But AUQ also seems to have much nicer moves than HL. A pop to the mid 9's shouldn't take long at all and could be an easy 50%. Hopefully could rinse and repeat that trade a few times.

  16. Food prices are way up here as well. It perturbs me that food and energy prices aren't included in the CPI.

    I wonder if Bernanke has been in a grocery store in the last 5 years?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. food and energy were removed in full anticipation of the impact of rising prices on CPI....Bernank knows VERY WELL their impact on the peeps.....this is calculated daily in terms of the "riot factor"......the food stamp program very important in keeping food in the mass's bellies. A full belly (even better an obese belly) does not go out onto the streets and protests (or worse riot)...... So you see a lot of seemingly coincidental developments like fast food and buffets help to keep the peeps smiling....sure i guess heart disease and diabetes and hypertension might be a slight problem but then we get into the health care ponzi......hehehe.....whoops gotta stop

  17. energy sector being taken apart for the same reasons......the oil headline number makes the ponzi printing exposed....and the shares of the oil equities will be accumulated.....its just that simple

  18. My personal favorite NG stock right now is Encana. Cheap and a 4% yield. Wouldn't touch Chesapeake with my worst enemy's money right now. I live in Oklahoma and can't imagine how our local economy would suffer if CHK got run into the ground. Luckily Devon has their shit together. Aubdawg has gotta go!
