    Interesting article BB! I am a little surprised he is saying 2013, instead of the end of this year. Bernanke spoke before Congress the other day and, besides a lot of CYA stuff, he indicated that nothing else could be done for our economy. Basically, QE-whatever number we're up to won't help and any attempts at austerity here would be a disaster. One of those 'damned if you do and damned if you don't' type of speeches. A congressman flipped out on him and told him to get to work, figure out a solution :rolleyes:

    I have been assuming a situation like this would become apparent, but what shakes me the most is that this is out in the open. The public knows about it, so I take that as a bad sign. Especially on a highly trafficed website like Yahoo....but you should all be doing what we can right now...

    Well, I guess I'd better get myself down to the corner store and donate a dollar to the redneck retirement fund. (lottery ticket) I just know I will win and then I can get me a Swiss bank account and accounts in the Cayman Islands and mebbe even an Ireland citizenship. :lol:

    Really, stock up on all the food stuffs you can lay hands on, tools, clothing, any and every thing you might need for an extended period. Even a little bit beats nothing. Ummmm....... my needs are coffee, chocolate, toilet paper (leaves leave a LOT to be desired) coffee, sugar, more coffee and did I mention coffee???????

    i love you all. and am glad i found this place.... nothing like knowing like minded people... who arent afraid to face reality.....

    edit: is their a manual that this forum has put together????

    i just purchased a food saver machine, dehydrator, and canner.

    The dehydrator has been wonderful, but i am realizing that i can use all 3 to perfection.

    Grow your own food, more than you can eat, sale some, can some, dehydrate some...

    Boy i have alot to learn..

    Mullein is the original backwoods Charmin. :lol:

    I've been picking figs and just brushing against the leaves is an itch-fest, gives me the creeps thinking about intentionally rubbing them in tender spots. :lol: :lol: :lol:
