I could wax political on the Occupy Wall Street chaos that seems to be popping up in a lot of places, but the only point I'll make, for the sake of keeping this blog apolitical, is this: If the economy keeps getting worse--and quite frankly, I can't see it getting better, given our federal government's trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see--the last place you want to be is in the midst of angry and/or hungry mobs. Stocking up on as much food as possible now while there's plenty on the shelves and no angry mobs fighting over the last can of whatever means you won't be putting your own safety and sustenance at risk down the road. I have enough food to feed my family for several months, and worst-case scenario, if there was nothing left on the store shelves tomorrow, all we'd really have to do without is fresh dairy products. You don't want to be in stores when people start fighting over stuff...unless you want to put yourself at risk, which I really wouldn't advise. I think Proverbs 27:12 applies very well here:
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it.
What are you waiting for? Stock up while you can still do so safely.
