Gerald Celente -Why A Survival Plan Is A Good Idea

Gerald Celente with Chris Waltzek of Goldseek discuss the economy and the crash , terrorism, and the preparedness mentality :

The message of this story is, during these volatile times, in an anything goes scenario, do you have a survival plan?

Whether its economic survival, whether its a natural disaster, or whether it’s terrorism.

Why A Survival Plan is a Good Idea

Whether it’s natural or man-made, if the SHTF you better have a plan. Most families have about three days worth of food in their pantries, maybe a week if they stretch it. After that your bellies will be empty.

The first thing to go in the onset of an emergency is the food and water.

We’ve discussed basic emergency planning before, and if the examples from just the past three months aren’t enough, then there’s probably nothing we can suggest that will convince you to take responsibility for yourself and your family and stock a reserve supply of essentials.

Emergencies and disasters don’t just happen on TV, in the news. They happen to real people just like you:

Hawaii Tsunami: Supermarket, Gas Lines as Pacific Rim Braces for Tsunami
Chilean Earthquake: Is it Looting? Victims Search for Food, Water, Gas, Emergency Supplies, Ingredients for Bread
UK Snowstorm: Winter Panic in UK: Store Shelves Stripped37
Haiti Earthquake: Red Cross Out of Medical Supplies in Haiti

Some Reserve Food Tips

One of the issues that many people have about prepping is a lack of funds. While this is certainly an important consideration, preparing a ten to fourteen day supply of food should not do too much damage to your budget.

For those first two weeks there is no need to go crazy with freeze dried goods or MRE’s, though these are excellent supplements to dry goods storage (especially the eggs & ham combo and some freeze dried meats). Simply make a list of dry goods that your family consumes regularly – our kids are big fans of mac & cheese, nuts, crackers and cereals. Incorporate this into your two week reserves along with things like rice, pinto beans, dehydrated milk, and canned meats (vienna sausages, chicken, tuna, salmon, ham).

For food selection when preparing a reserve food supply, most of the foods should be those that your family eats regularly so that you can rotate it right into your existing food preparation. As you use up rice or beans, or soup cans and crackers, just add them to the next grocery list. Doing this makes your reserve food supply a one-time cost.

And be sure to have water. This is even more important than food and you can stock 25 gallons for under $35 (Run down to the Home Depot and pick up five x 5 gallon spring water today and it’s one less thing to worry about).

Finally, if you are storing dry goods that require cooking, consider preparation methods. Do you have a gas grill or charcoal grill? Stock up on some extra fuel today.

Don’t have a grill? Consider a Rocket Stove for under $50. You can boil water in about 15 minutes with some twigs from the backyard or charcoal if you have it handy.

It’s easy to create an SHTF Plan. Consider those items critical to survival first, and go from there. 

For under $200 you can feel comfortable knowing that you do, in fact, have a survival plan, albeit a basic one.

Evacuation

You’ll of course want to make preparations for evacuation routes along with evac checklists in the event of something like a hurricane, tsunami, earthquake or terror attack. Don’t underestimate the power of panic – when the SHTF everyone in your household, including you, will probably be stressed out. Having a checklist (they take maybe 10 minutes to put together) will make it easy for you to get all of your important belongings packed into the car and get your family out the door while the rest of the city is rushing grocery stores full of empty shelves.

Finally, in regards to evacuations – remember the gas. If you don’t have reserve gas stored, or it is prohibitive because of cost or safety, then just keep your car(s) filled.

In the case of gasoline, the tank is empty if it is on the halfway mark. So go tank up if you hit 50% on the fuel gauge — make it a habit. If there is an emergency and your primary vehicle is low on gas, consider emergency steps like siphoning from your secondary vehicle (anti-siphon technology in some cars may prevent this, in which case you can always pop a hole in the secondary vehicle’s gas tank and use that to fill the primary).

The tips listed above are just a start and are the most basic considerations that should be made by those who have, up to this point, taken no steps to create a survival plan.

It’s no secret that our best and brightest are a bit misguided (some would say brainwashed), and it’s because they’re only getting half of the story (ok, maybe like 1/100th of the story).

Here’s an excerpt from President Obama’s commencement speech at the University of Michigan:

“Government .. is the roads we drive on and the speed limits that keep us safe. It’s the men and women in the military, the inspectors in our mines, the pioneering researchers in public universities.”

Yes, government is those things, and I must admit, there’s nothing better than a paved road when you drive a POS like the Mac Mobile (made in South Korea circa 1999 – hey, it helps me keep a low profile and I’m payment free!).

But, the President left out a few things. Not to worry, however, because Neal Boortz finished up what President Obama’s speech should have been:

Government is forcing you to buy health insurance. Government is seizing your money with a vague promise you’ll get some of it back at a negative rate of return if you live long enough to retire. Government is seizing your home because some developer promises to build something on what once was your property that will deliver more property taxes. Government is finding you in an airport with too much cash in your pocket, seizing that cash and telling you that you’re just flat out of luck. Government is forcing you to pay an employee more than that person is worth to your business, and then telling you that you cannot pay a top level executive what he IS worth. Government is (or will be) health care rationing. Government is telling you that you cannot invest your own money in a business venture you find promising. Government is charging you with a federal crime if you pick an eagle feather up you see lying on the ground. Government is telling you that you cannot use property that you own because it might – just might – be a nifty habitat for some esoteric mouse that, by the way, has never been actually seen anywhere near your property. Government is telling you that you cannot advertise a home with a “walk-in closet” because the phrase “walk-in” discriminates against people in wheel chairs. Oh … and government is spending over a billion dollars of taxpayer money a year on electric scooters for lard asses who are simply tired of hauling their massive selves to the bingo game down at the community hall.

Government is allowing teacher’s unions to control the education of our children. Government is forcing the top 1% of income earners to pay 40% of all personal income taxes while allowing the bottom 50% of income earners to become net tax consumers. Government is chasing businesses and jobs overseas with confiscatory taxation. Government is creating a financial meltdown by encouraging and then virtually guaranteeing hideously bad mortgages by the tens of millions … and then blaming Wall Street when it all turns into s#!t stew. Government is owning General Motors. Government is ignoring the law and giving unions advantages in bankruptcy proceedings. Government is flying elected officials all over the globe on meaningless junkets while demonizing corporate executives who dare make use of private aircraft. Government is taxing a man his entire working life, and then coming back for half of what he has left when he dies. All of this and Obama tells the grads that “government is the roads we drive on.” Only a freshly minted college grad would buy a load of waste material like that.
