Steps To Survive The Coming Economic Collapse

Unemployment Falls: Recession Fears Ease After Jobs Report You better get with it and realize this is barely beginning and be prepare.

If you have not noticed yet the Republicans will settle for nothing less than total collapse so they can blame what George W Bush "or more aptly his handlers" started and all they have done to make President Obama and us fail on Obama. You better be very scared because if they get back in they will obliterate everything FDR and all Democrats accomplished so they can replace it with The elitist society started under George W Bush

I do recommend you read what I wrote on the subject 3 years ago and it follows this. It could save your life! 7 Steps To Survive The Coming Economic Collapse – You may deny it all you want just like the mainstream media and the government is doing. The truth is with the mounting national debt and annual deficit rising it is mathematically impossible for the US to not head for a collapse. Many economists and successful international investors are warning the people that the worst is yet to come.

I got this supposed breaking news and I hate to tell them but they are 4 years too late and America's hell is here! The Coming Economic Hell For American Families It has been here for years! As a result we discussed the cause of this again a month ago Here

Here it is: We discussed how to survive this more than three years ago. Do not be fooled to think the US will not be hit because it will be and it is barely beginning now despite all efforts to stave it off. Survival: World food shortages spreading but After air, the most important thing we need to survive is potable water. This is easy be prepared! Water filtration devices can be bought at practically any camping or outdoor supply store, but if you live in the city, you probably don’t camp out a lot. You may not have a water filtration device. You may depend upon your city to provide you with filtered water from your tap. A turn of a knob and there you go - drinkable water.

But, in a widespread economic depression, we may be subjected to equipment breakdowns and/or water rationing. In fact, we are often already subjected to water rationing, but so far, it’s only applied to watering lawns. In a critical, short term disaster, the water may be contaminated and undrinkable for a while. How do city folks get drinkable water? If we have advanced warning, we can fill up jugs, pitchers, bottles, sinks, buckets, and bathtubs with water. That’s good for a week or so, and grey water can be used to flush the toilet.

If you have an ornamental pond or wading pool or collect rainwater in barrels from your gutters, that’s a good source of water, too. It can be boiled to make it drinkable. I know a lot of sources say you need to boil your water for anywhere between one and ten minutes, but in my experience, this means you are left with steam and very little water. Bringing the water to a good rolling boil and then cooling it is sufficient to make it drinkable.

Distilling your water yourself is the best way to guarantee it’s drinkable. Most stills are illegal to own, but you can make a water distillation still out of common household items. Well, they used to be common. Maybe they aren’t anymore. What you need is a stockpot, a domed metal lid in which you can drill (or have drilled) a hole at the highest part, plastic tubing (like what you have for the ice maker in your refrigerator), a bowl of cold water and a pot or pitcher in which to catch the purified water.

Fill the stockpot with water - use the pitcher you’ll use to catch the clean water to measure - two pitchers of water in the stockpot. Secure the plastic tubing in the hole and the lid to the stockpot (make a paste of flour and water to seal the edges), make sure the tubing doesn’t come near the heat or the hot stock pot, coil a couple of loops into a bowl of cold water, and hang the end out into the pitcher you use to catch the cleaned water. Make sure the bowl of cold water is lower than the stock pot, and the pitcher is lower than the bowl of cold water. Heat the stockpot of water to a rolling boil. The steam will be captured by the tubing, the cold water in the bowl will convert the steam back to water and the purified water will drip into the pitcher. When the pitcher is full, turn the heat off and the water you collect while it cools as well as what cools in the stockpot can be used for greywater purposes like flushing the toilet. Don’t use the leftover water for any purposes that might make its way into your mouth. While it’s been boiled, theoretically making it safe, it may still contain some chemical contaminants. The distilled portion is safe to drink and cook and wash dishes with.

If you live in the city and have only flood waters available, distill the water you drink. Don’t depend upon boiling to remove contaminants. In the city, the water will come into contact with a wide variety of chemical contaminants that boiling just won’t remove. Be safe, distill your water.
If no water is available, you can collect water with a dew collector. please read the rest it may save your life

I have to one degree or another been a Freegan and a survivalist my entire life Following is a Breakdown on Freeganism get some ideas!
Times are getting tough and I want you to learn how to be frugal and survive when most will not just in case.Following is a Breakdown on Freeganism get some ideas!

Freeganism is an anti-consumerist lifestyle whereby people employ alternative living strategies based on "limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. The website states that freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed." The lifestyle involves salvaging discarded, unspoiled food from supermarket dumpsters that have passed their display date but haven't passed their edible date. They salvage the food not because they are poor or homeless, but as a political statement.It isn't just food it is everything. Watch for discards do not be proud be safe!

The word "freegan" is a portmanteau "free" and "vegan" Freeganism started in the mid 1990s, out of the antiglobalization and environmentalist movements. Groups such as Food Not Bombs served free vegetarian and vegan food that was salvaged from food market trash by dumpster diving. The movement also has elements of Diggers, an anarchist street theater group based in Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco in the 1960s, that gave away rescued food.

Many freegans get free food by pulling it out of the trash, a practice commonly nicknamed dumpster diving in North America and skipping or bin diving in the UK, as well as bin raiding. Freegans find food in the garbage of restaurants, grocery stores, and other food related industries, which they claim allows them to avoid spending money on products that exploit the world's resources, contribute to urban sprawl, treat workers unfairly, or disregard animal rights. By foraging, they believe they are keeping perfectly edible food from adding to landfill clutter and that can feed people and animals who might otherwise go hungry.

Wild foraging and urban gardens: Instead of buying industrially grown foods, wild foragers find and harvest food and medicinal plants growing in their own communities. Some freegans participate in "Guerrilla" or "Community" Gardens, with the stated aim of rebuilding community and reclaiming the capacity to grow one's own food. In order to fertilize those guerrilla gardens, food obtained from dumpster diving is sometimes also reused. In many urban guerrilla gardens, vermiculture is used instead of ordinary composting techniques in order to keep the required infrastructure/room small. Guerrilla gardeners claim to seek an alternative to dependence and participation in what they perceive as an exploitative and ecologically destructive system of global, industrialized corporate food production. It isn't just food it is everything Learn how to make do, adapt, overcome!

Jim ... Good posting and Good Morning ... especially useful knowledge here is this link of a past posting from 04/ 13/ 08 as far as tip's on survival/ food shortage's ... even if there was no immediate crisis, this is very importante to know, many thing's I had no idea of either. I'm a city boy, I dont know much about this, my outdoor activities has been limitied to hunting and travelling, both I loved ... and I never done much camping either. But alot to at least be aware of here as food for thought as well, and great to see so many like yourself are posting/ publishing this type information, Thanx ....

You know RC, there is more info and I first posted on surviving this in 2007 when I saw what Bush did and how bad it was going to get. I am so sick of his disaster that he calls success being blamed on Obama.

Unfortunately what to do if you have crappy weather like we had out here this year? We've had black bears roaming the suburbs looking for food this year because they can't find food in the wild. And most of the city gardens are producing very little.

I had a bad year this year with some stuff because of frigging voles but You'd be amazed at what you can eat right in your yards, trees, weeds and flowers, even acorns if you leech out the tannic acid. Get a rat trap, I use to use them for squirrels but watch for your cat unless you're hungry.
