This is not a test, this is something that is right around the corner. You can look at it like it is here it is happening now, it has been happening. How many times do you have to get hit in the face before you figure out it hurts?

See you all in the hills….

Gonna kick back and watch a movie. No sense runnin to the hills while DH still has a good job, we've got our preps, and the streets are quiet.

I salute those of you who have a retreat in the woods and can still make it to work- but.. That ain't us :) We're hunkerin down and doin just fine for the time being.

Might run out to the store later for a few extras though. :) Just to be safe.

This is still the beginning, folks... We aren't going to wake up tomorrow to mass rioting (well- most of us... I bet Wall Street won't be pretty tomorrow...) but still... This is a slow train- it's moving- and picking up speed- but IMO it's not time to jump. Yet.

Went to the store to buy an AK, and the cheapest they had was $400 POS WASR 10 that needed a new stock. Went to 3 stores. Settled for a box of 20 7.62x39.

I have to wait to the weekend to get guns from parents. I was too stoopid to not bring them back with me. :(

Thanks for the warning. Going out tonight for a fresh bug out bag.

Would someone please explain to me why we should leave our homes? I suppose if you live in a BIG City and you're worried about riots. Yes, Go! But if you live in a small little town in Midwest America, why leave? Everything, extra food, medicine, guns, ammo, survival gear, etc. is right here. I know my neighbors very well and know and trust them not to attack me. And there is something to say about safety in numbers. Where do you go when you Bug Out?

*Chuckle* I have mental images of all these folks hittin the woods in their local parks, hiding in the brush with their MREs and rifles and watching the kids stroll by on their way to the play equipment...

Yeah- this isn't the time to go running- you'll waste valuable resources that you could really use if/when you DO need them.

I figure I have at least a 6-24 hour "head start" over 99% of people around where I live when it comes to stocking up on last minute supplies.

I would have to agree, now is NOT the time to leave. If you have a job just sit tight. If you have to leave in reality it will be very clear.

I know I would not want to leave, I make money here and that is what gets me by with my preparations.

Just another day for now.:cool:

Look for that holiday like wild chipmunk said. The fed created 630 billion out of thin air this morning anyhow on a currency swap, which is a nice way of saying they did an end run around congress. Note that they did this before the give away was voted on. I'm not leaving my digs just yet, more has to go down first.

Sept. 29 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve will pump an additional $630 billion into the global financial system, flooding banks with cash to alleviate the worst banking crisis since the Great Depression.

The Fed increased its existing currency swaps with foreign central banks to $620 billion from $290 billion to make more dollars available worldwide. The Term Auction Facility, the Fed's emergency loan program, will expand to $450 billion from $150 billion. The European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the Bank of Japan are among the participating authorities.

The Fed's expansion of liquidity, the biggest since credit markets seized up last year, comes as Congress prepares to vote on a $700 billion bailout for the financial industry. The crisis is reverberating through the global economy, forcing European governments to rescue four banks over the past two days alone.

``Today's blast of term liquidity will settle the funding markets down, and allow trust to slowly be restored between borrowers and lenders,'' said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. in New York. On the other hand, ``the Fed's balance sheet is about to explode.''

Banks and brokers have slowed lending as they struggle to restore their capital after $554 billion in credit losses and writedowns since the mortgage crisis began a year ago. The bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. also sparked fears among banks they wouldn't be repaid by counterparties, driving up the cost of short-term loans between banks.

``These steps are being undertaken to mitigate pressures evident in the term funding markets both in the United States and abroad,'' the Fed said in a statement released on the Board of Governors website.

``By committing to provide a very large quantity of term funding, the Federal Reserve actions should reassure financial market participants that financing will be available against good collateral, lessening concerns about funding and rollover risk,'' the central bank said.
