This whole year has been a good wake up call for me in the area of preparedness--realizing how unprepared I am.

If the Antifa riots over the past few months are any indicator, I suspect they will turn it up to 11 on November 4. There will be another run at the grocery store like back in May for Corona but now Antifa will disrupt supply chains. I predict the strategy will be to riot so much Trump will deploy military. Then liberals and media will call him a fascist and seek his impeachment again.

I'm planning on 2 months without a grocery store. If I am wrong then I'll just work that food into my normal meal planning and won't have to go to the store much in February.

I believe ANTIFA and BLM leaders are trying to push the federal and local governments into another Kent State type of scenario...to claim the moral high ground. The leaders of both groups don't care about the useful idiots they employ...casualties are ok with them and a necessary part of any revolution...as long as it's not them personally playing bullet catcher.

If Trump wins re-election the rioting will continue if not get worse. If Trump loses the Left will seize on the momentum to try and push harder. I think in their minds Biden will be ineffective and feckless (an accurate assessment) and they will push for his replacement by Harris who far more Lefist.

It's the communist/socialist/liberal way. My folks are off the boat from post WWII Poland. They *always* had a pantry full of food when they got to a place where they could afford it. I carried that forward and took it to a whole 'nother level.

Be safe gents

*****Yup. There was a Twilight Zone episode about this mebbe 60 years ago, but it involved a nuclear attack incoming.. A prepper family that had a nice bunker were laughed at by the neighbors until the SHTF. The neighbors were ready to kill each other and the family to get in. Very ugly scenario. It finally ended when it turned out to be a false alarm, and Rod Serling came out smoking his usual cigarette.

Best to keep your mouth shut as to what you have. An armed collection coming to collect things for the "common good" would suck, and it could happen if things get really bad. Even with good prep, if enough people want your stuff - they WILL get it. Best they don't know you have anything.

Lots of people on both sides would get hurt and killed, and plenty of folks would just drop dead from the stress and anxiety. Plenty of suicides and depression now from Covid. Add major civil unrest and the stress of keeping your hoard, and your family safe? That would suck.

Preppers get a bad rap, but it's not just food prepping, and guns, etc... Prepping is also about what happens if the system doesn't crash but just slows down, but more and more people become poor and destitute. Welfare payments stop? Social Security goes broke, etc... Massive civil unrest.

Best to just shut up, hoard Spam, ammo, TP, nudie magazines, lotion, and kleenex and hope Amazon Prime still works!!!
