We are headed for war.
This time it will be different. We have lost our factories and steel mills. We have lost our shoe manufacturers. We have no manufacturing base anymore.
Things are so different than they were during WWI and WWII.
Our borders are nonexistent. There have been many reports of ME men entering our land via the southern border disguised as Mexican and South Americans.
The men in WWI and II were primarily raised on farms. They were used to hardship. They were used to discipline and hardwork.
This time I believe it will be fought here on our turf. We have brought it to others. They will bring it to us.
Listen to what my 86 year old Mother says. She lived through the Great Depression and WWI. She cries nearly every day as she watches the news. She knows what is coming.
She has asked me to ask all you parents to please buy underwear, socks and shoes in incrementally larger sizes for your growing children. She says people forget that children grow, and there are no shoes, no new underwear, no new socks available during war. If your child wears size 6 shoe, get a size 7, 8, 9, 10, etc for them now. If you are a grandparent and you know your children won't listen to you about this, buy the clothing for your grandchildren yourself. And buy it now.
My Mother also said that there was no or very little sugar available. Sugar is necessary for canning fruit. Yesterday we canned 4 dozen pints of crabapple jelly. We used 25 lbs of sugar. (Crabapples are sour) I will be replacing that sugar ASAP.
There also was no oil for cooking. She has us buying lard from Wally World. She insists that it will outlast cooking oil and not grow rancid.
There are other things we need to be stacking besides silver and gold right now.
The handwriting is on the wall.
Are you listening?
