Prepare for SHTF difficult survival and civil war, mass hysteria, anarchy, or worse.
I have experienced constant contempt and discrimination by “elites” who are not so rich or smart. Actually primitive tribesmen and conspirators from distant lands whose greed has created the SHTF scenarios here and abroad.
They think they can steal from you and then get away with it. They hate you and want to get rid of you.
You are already a victim.
If you don’t know you are a victim then your mind is blown, as part of the conspiracy. If your brain does not function well, then your body is doomed…

Tips for starting a bucket garden
If you use buckets, you can easily move your plants inside during a frost, heavy rain or wind storm. The buckets will also make it easier to bring out your plants into the sunshine during spring.
Use a food-grade bucket because using old buckets that may have been used to store toxic substances can cause chemicals to leech into the plastic.
Look for food-grade buckets at local restaurants that may give away buckets that once stored food items. Alternatively, you can purchase new food-grade buckets online or from big box stores.
Aside from buckets, you will also need other gardening staples, such as:
- Plants or seeds – In some cases it’s better to start live plants in containers instead of seeds.
- A growing medium (potting mix or potting soil) – Don’t buy garden soil for your containers. Instead, make your own potting mixes that are designed to allow for drainage, which is important for container growing.
- Plant stakes or cages – Some plants like cucumbers and tomatoes need stakes or cages.
Once you get your food-grade buckets, prepare them for planting. Drill or punch a few holes in the bottom of the bucket. One hole about every three inches should do it.
Leave about two inches of loose gravel in the bottom of the bucket for better drainage. Then fill the buckets with a high-quality potting soil mix that includes peat moss and compost. Leave enough room for the plants themselves.
Plant either seeds or starter plants in five-gallon buckets. Water your crops well and check for the soil’s moisture level for further watering. Container plants usually need daily watering during summer because they can dry out rapidly. (Related: Home gardening tips: 8 Small space gardening options that won’t break the bank.)

Both pole beans and bush beans will grow well in buckets.

On average, this means that a grocery store has roughly a week’s worth of food within its four walls at any given time. However, remember that this is a week’s worth of food in normal circumstances.

RESILIENT LIVING: What Would a Complete Supply Chain Breakdown Really Look Like? – By Aden Tate
Maple is a sacred tree, and the Native Americans were the first to tap it and discover its incredible sap. The sap, and the syrup that results from the boiling of sap, is the lifeblood of the maple tree. In taking part of that lifeblood into ourselves, we receive the blessing of the maple tree. Partaking of such a sacred thing should be done with reverence and respect (and thanking the trees for their offering, of course!)

- The emergency packages will contain two weeks of food and personal care items
- The door-to-door program begins on Monday
- To request a package for yourself or someone else call the coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398
Only those people in mandatory self-isolation, who have little or no food
and no network of family and friends to support them will be eligible for the packages.
The food packages will include items such as long-life milk, pasta, cereal, canned vegetables and sugar.
Personal care packages which include soap, toothpaste and deodorant will also be distributed to eligible households.
Additional items such as nappies or baby formula may also be provided depending on the needs of the household.
“We need to look out for each other over the next few months, but for people who have no-one nearby to support them, we’ll make sure they get what they need,” Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers Luke

“There is plenty of food for all Victorians so please don’t take more than you need.
“But if you do find yourself isolated, and can’t access the basics, we have emergency relief packages for you.”
Imagine what will happen tomorrow morning in Ohio and Illinois at grocery stores.
These governors do not have any experience, policy framework, or previously established state-wide systems (having been tested through experience) for a process of rapid food distribution as a result of a state emergency…
A government cannot just shut down 30 to 50 percent of the way civil society feeds themselves, without planning and advanced preparation for an alternative. Those who ARE the alternative, the retail food grocers, need time to prepare themselves (and their entire logistical system) for the incredible impact. Without preparation this is a man-made crisis about to get a lot worse.
Some states have emergency food distribution and contingency plans. Those states are hurricane prone states; and those states have experienced the intense demand on the food distribution system when restaurants are closed and people in society need to eat.
Those states have, by necessity, developed massive logistical systems to deal with the food needs of their citizens. These current short-sighted states are not those prepared states.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling Americans that they should be prepared for the possibility of a COVID-19 outbreak in their community.
… Don’t panic — but do prepare.
That “means not only contingency planning but also good old-fashioned preparedness planning for your family,” says Rebecca Katz, director of the Center for Global Health Science and Security at Georgetown University. In other words, what you’d do in case of a
possible hurricane or another natural disaster.
