Got Preps? Got List?

False information. Simply not true – so say the locals. Apologies for the bad intel.

Alarming news from Oathkeepers:

Clearly, in light of the above, if you purchase food storage, along with any other preparedness items, you should be concerned about those purchases being tracked and your name winding up on some government list. But don’t let that stop you from storing food and other essential supplies, and don’t let this disturbing incident keep you from using your local Mormon cannery to do so. You need to get prepared. But do it while following the advice of James Wesley, Rawles over at www.survivalblog.com, who repeatedly urges his readers to “think OPSEC!” – if at all possible, buy with cash and pick it up in person, just like the customers of this particular cannery did, which left the “agitated” agents empty handed and frustrated. Good. That is as it should be. Don’t make it easy on them. And if you have not yet begun to store food, now is certainly a good time to start. You’re going to need it. Time is short, and you need to be prepared for what is coming.  “Are You Ready?” indeed.  – Stewart Rhodes

Found this via morning forum reading. It does seem as if there is a coordinated effort to track this stuff, or at the very least, appear to track this stuff.

On one hand you look at the DHS/FEMA sites and they ask, “Are you ready?”, while the other hand looks to investigate and prepare lists of eeevil people who store food and ammo. Typical dotgov. Idiocy on a level only reserved for them.

The saying still goes: Watch the other hand…

Comments on this post are pretty good. I like the idea of AUS or France, but family ties would not allow the Matson house to do something that drastic.

And while this is true:

A six month stockpile of canned/freeze dried goods and two dozen boxes of ammo won’t get you through it.  You need a real game plan.

Being prepared enough to thrive during and post the initial system shock will go a long way. Not being hungry or completely defenseless will help you think clearly. I propose that you have 12 months + worth of supplies. It is cheap, an excellent investment against all kinds of systemic vulnerabilities, and will give you the ability to render direct aid to those around you, further building your tribe in times of crisis.

The ability to defend the above seems only logical.
