"This currency, as we manage it, is a wonderful machine. It performs its office when we issue it; it pays and clothes troops, and provides victuals and ammunition; and when we are obliged to issue a quantity excessive, it pays itself off by depreciation."
Benjamin Franklin, 1779.
Food production is one of the most essential concerns of any society. Without direct availability and ease of consumption, without the consistent flow of agricultural goods, every nation existing today (except the most primitive) would immediately find its infrastructure crumbling and its people in a furious panic. It’s strange to me, then, that long term independent food planning is the one concern that many Americans seem to take most for granted. Firearms and ammo, camping gear and bug-out-bags, MRE’s, beans, and rice; these are the easiest part of your survival foundation. The hard part is not storage of goods, but devising a solid and practical plan for sustainability in the long term. This starts with the capacity to support your own agriculture regardless of how long the grid is down, even if it is down indefinitely. Click Here To Read Entire Article From neithercorp.us

If you had sold your house at the very peak of the housing bubble in 2006 … just before silver took off … you could now sell your silver and buy back your house … plus five more houses like it. And there’s a lot more potential for that trade to get even better. Silver shot up about fourfold, while real estate plummeted by a quarter or a third. That’s “so far.” Silver’s price could multiply again — even if does dip in the interim — while housing could drop even more. Even if you didn’t catch the peak, but just saw the writing on the wall in 2000-2005, you’d still have done pretty well by selling your home and buying silver. You wouldn’t have gotten quite as much for your house, but you would have gotten silver at around $4 instead of $9. Silver probably has another trick or two up its sleeve. It probably has a lot more upside than gold. It will probably play catch up till the silver/gold price ratio gets larger. Who knows? Look at the other coin that was debased: the low
Chiappa "Little Badger" 22 Mag Here is one of the sweetest little guns that I have seen in a long while, the Chiappa Little Badger. The perfect gun for your bug-out bag or to hide under the seat of your truck. I'm digging the aftermarket suppressor option-perfect for taking out those raccoons that are getting into the garbage without waking the neighbors ;) All kidding aside, the suppressor option is what really takes this piece over the top. In any true survival scenario stealth would be a key factor, giving away your bug-out location would be a big time no-no.
