Who here was caught unprepared by the big blackout a few years back? S certainly does H T F, no matter where you live. Power blackouts can occur anywhere, and if they last long enough, are certainly a bad situation to be in.

Yeah, can't think of too much that can happen out in AZ. Well maybe the huge hurricane of illegals that has been flooding both of our states. Maybe we should get FEMA up here too.

This is true. Not much I can say that hasn't already been said about the border issue.

Guys, it may not seem like it but AZ can flood like a MOFO when she wants to. One of these days the Goddess ( Arizunna ) might get angry and decide to give us a big, wet slap.....not mention that even though it has been over 100 years ( 1880 or 1888, I believe ) we can gt substantial earthqukes here.

All it is going to take is a blow to basic infrastructure and resources.


Take out any of the following:

Power
Trucks (shipping)
Water (in the city)


and you have some genuine SHTF. Even without any kind of panic, I reckon the food store only has about a week worth of major food products (meat, canned goods, etc.).

Take out power, the ability to get supplies (commercial or otherwise), or taint the water and you have an absolute mess. How many people, honestly, have a decent supply of food? Only the blessed few of us are in an area to really bug out and work on those hunting/fishing skills. The majority of people would be SOL for a time.

The stable situation (ahh, back in the mountains... hunting, fishing, waiting for civilization to get back on track) is only possible after the multiple-week period of major conflict (with the poor and the oppressed) and general self-destruction (Darwin will take care of many issues during this period.).


So don't act surprised that we may be watching a SHTF situation on the TV... be shocked if we dont see more in the future.

EDIT: And the whole "in the mountains" situation is just a cliche I'm using. I watched Red Dawn this week.

A pac-man with a M-60 would certainly be a fine asset in any SHTF scenario, but you also need water, food, et cetera...

Somebody here said that FEMA can and will confiscate any supplies you have if it's found out you are stocked up.

The specific language was called "hoarding."

Not sure about the voracity of the comment, but it is unsettling, nonetheless.

I'd just like to mention while we have everyone's attention, that we have an excellent Survival Forum on the site.

We always have great threads going on how to be better prepared to survive and evade serious occurances like the recent hurricane in the Gulf region.

It's about time I started dropping in there. I used to be HUGELY into survivalism when I was a youngster...but after meeting so many militia retards, know it all's and Gunkid I shied away from the program for years......no more teetotalling around for me!!!

I understand there were laws against "hoarding" that predated FEMA.

Same as welfare. You can't get assistance if you have a certain amount of money in the bank... it requires you to stay broke. How are you supposed to get off of welfare if you are encouraged to throw away money? The government WANTS you to rely on it.

Off topic but:

Those on welfare hide how much money they make by working under the table or just work period, having absolutely no bank account (check cashing places, grocery stores cash checks), and no credit cards. They are virtually financially invisible and therefore show "no income" so they still get their benefits. Ever wonder why some in the ghetto pimp Cadillacs but live off of welfare? They probably ain't livin off of just welfare!

I think I saw what you're talking about, but are you sure you interpreted it correctly? The cameraman was right behind them and they didn't seem to care, I don't think they were just hiding their faces they were just facing away from the camera. They could have been just taking stuff for a shelter or something.

I might have seen a different segment than you though...

Always knew it could happen. Even assumed I would probably see it in my lifetime.

What is disturbing to me is the lack of response to criminal activity by civil authorities. I suppose they think they have bigger things to worry about, and I recognize they do have plenty to worry about. But, have seen no reports of anything being done to stop it and plenty of reports of authorities standing by and watching it. Hope they can keep it contained. My concern is the "mob mentality" will grow until it HAS to be stopped. I will be paying close attention to that aspect of this drama.

As I watch the footage of the people stranded on Hwy 10 near exit 235 I wonder why none of them took the time to fill some containers of water? Not one surplus 5 gallon water jug, camelback, or refilled bleach bottle among them.

I've decided to get my ass in gear and put together a decent BOB. Well, best I can on a college budget. MREs, water purification stuff, fire stuff, axe, first aid, flashlight, light sticks, etc. Cabelas has a good deal on what looks like a decent backpack (German milsurp). I don't have a lot of cash.

'cause of the budget I'm probably gonna stick with my Blackhawk vest, and a backpack over it. The vest is hot as hell, but carries 12 30 rounders fine.
