Wake up women who still believe there are no shortages
“Lie long enough and they will accept it as truth,” this was the statement of one of Hitler’s initial staff. It can be said today right here in America. The “Rebel” flag is an example. Accepted as the ‘flag of Dixie’, it was not the official flag of the southern confederacy but rather of a northern Virginia regiment.
“Food shortages are a figment of the extremists”. If this were a true statement why, is the U.S. Government, corporation leaders, and others of the elite in society, stock piling food? Putting up food for leaner times has been recommended since before recorded history. It is referred to in Biblical writings and the ancient Egyptians store-housed grains. In the years since affordable cold storage, Americans are fooled into believing their favorite foods are readily available year-round. However, embargo’s, war, drought,or pests/plant diseases in other countries could quickly deplete supplies filtering down to your neighborhood grocery. In the last two years drought here in America has greatly depleted grains, veggies, and beef supplies and most are now imported with China a large supplier.
Post 1960’s American women were entering colleges, the work force in larger numbers than seen in World War II. With this and changes in the American economy, many women did not adopt the ‘put up for the lean times’ attitude of their mother’s. Thus, the ‘buy it as I need it’ mindset began.
I do not rely on one source for news and I hope you do the same. In the end, we as individuals must research before we blindly believe what others are saving.
I have seen gas, water, and other “now” essentials in shortages world-wide.
We are still the best country that I have ever seen. But, I strongly believe we need to begin learning the ways of our mother’s and grandmother’s and put up foods beyond stocking the family freezer. Be the care takers of your family, skip the fast foods and cook in bulk for multiple meals, can or dehydrate seasonal foods and meats. You might be ‘well off’ today but, how long can you hold out without a paycheck. ~~~And don’t even get me started on relying on the government to give you money….
