What To Prepare For...........Scenarios That Are VERY Possible

Storing two to four weeks of "commercial" food isn't too difficult. But when you get beyond that, you really need to look at specialized foods prepared specifically for long-term storage. These generally fall into several categories:

    * Vacuum-packed dried and freeze-dried foods
    * Nitrogen packed grains and legumes
    * Specially prepared and sealed foods such as MRE's (Meals, Ready-to-Eat) with a five-to-ten year shelf life

All offer one main advantage: long storage life. Some, such as MRE's and packages sold to backpackers, are complete meals. This is handy and convenient, but they tend to be expensive on a per-meal basis. Others, such as #10 cans (about a gallon) of dried items, are usually ingredients which can be used to prepare a full meal. These ingredients include everything from macaroni elbows or carrot slices to powdered milk or butter flavor. Your best bet is a combination of both full-meal entrees and bulk items.

As the name implies, MRE's are ideal for a quick, nutritious, easy-to-prepare meal. They are convenient to carry in the car, on a trip or on a hike. They have very long shelf lives (which can be extended by placing a case or two in your spare refrigerator). On the downside, they are very expensive on a per-meal basis and they do not provide as much roughage as you need. (This can lead to digestive problems if you plan to live on them for more than a week or two.)

13 of that list could happen in the very near future and the rest could soon follow. It's not that I don't trust my government a little, I don't trust them a whole lot.

It is a fact that there are people out there always looking for an opportunity to pillage, plunder and riot, just look at Oakland Ca, the scum there look for events to break things and loot stores.
But many store owners are semi prepared, they have roll up gates and bullet proof glass on the windows.

But what happens when they finish off their own neighborhood? They will be venturing out.
