    There are a lot of people "investing" in Iraqi dinars, too.

    Do you seriously believe that or are you being funny?

    I ask because I take your posts seriously. If you are really stocking up on non perishables..then I should be doing the same.

    I'm being somewhat funny, but preparation is always a good idea. You should have a few weeks worth of non-perishable food available, not to mention a good pistol for home defense. If things go south in Europe, then things will get chaotic globally, and the things to watch out for are interruptions in oil supplies. Stock up on batteries and have the means to store water if the utilities fail.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    I have a few weeks of emergency food stored. Most is non-perishable but the rest can be stored long term. I rotate stock also. Having this is comforting to me but my wife seems to be amused by it. She will change her mind if we have to use it. Ammunition is for home protection.

    If the trucks stopped rolling for one day, it would be inconvenient locally. If they stopped rolling for three days, it would be catastrophic. Natural disasters can trigger this like floods and earthquakes. Look at what a simple snowstorm can do.

    Man made disasters like the Obama administration trying their best to destroy the economy is another issue. Look at energy. Oil cost is directly related to every other cost. If the truckers cannot afford to fuel their rigs, they park them.

    Money supply. If it fails, who is going to deliver/stock/sell food? Who will work at the power and utility plants?

    Not to scare you, just be prepared.
