    that was the one. However China was not the only country to drop supplies, they were dropped all over the US by UN countries. not all that far fetched, as China is one of the biggest contributors to UN missions. And in return they take economic control of the nation, just as the US did in decades past. the very interesting part of it in my mind was the whole attack was orchestrated by a company that had contracts with the US gov giving them Defacto control in the aftermath, allowing them to then change all the textbooks and schooling taught to the new generation.

    All of these have happened before, so will happen again.

    Natural disaster
    Pandemic
    Economic collapse
    Grid down

    If you don't have a plan for any of these, Why are you reading this?

    Likely scenarios?

    See this thread:

    http://www.gunownersofcanada.ca/show...crisis-deepens

    If we continue down the socialist path, the only question becomes - when?
    Two vicious lies undergird that stinking pile of excrement that passes for firearms law and regulation in Canada.

    Some guns are too dangerous for you to have, and you don't "need" guns because you have police to protect you.

    This is the real reality of the situation.

    I will concur.

    I have lived through natural disasters. Hurricane Juan, White Juan.

    We have all lived through the SARS scare, and saw the concerns about Swine Flu.

    Economic Collapse? Canada was lucky in 2008...we weathered the collapse well. Will we survive the next one quite as well? Our consumer debt is at the highest levels per household that they've been, I think ever....so that's not a good thing. What happens if the housing bubble that burst in the US a decade ago bursts in Toronto, Vancouver?

    Grid Breakdown? Yup. Whole east coast went down a few years back. Things came back entirely too slowly...

    Those are things that have happened in the living memory of my own children. Who's to say they won't happen again soon? And more severely?

    Do you live within a mile of a major rail line or highway? If there was a HAZMAT spill, and they show up at your door and say "GO NOW" what do you do?

    Do you have a "GO NOW" list? A 5-minute list? A 15 minute list? What if you had 2 hours to pack?

    Most scenarios for me would involve bugging in. I'm on a lake, so water isn't a problem, I've got septic, so my toilets will still flush for basic sanitation (just need buckets to refill the tanks) I've got a week of gas for my generator, so I'll have power to keep the fridge and freezer running. I've got a propane fireplace so I'll have heat.

    Realistically, most situations for most people would involve bugging in, and most of those are usually resolved within 72 hours...hence the Red Cross 72 hour kits. Most of us have the wherewithal to survive 72 hours....and most have the 'stuff' onhand to make it a lot longer than that.

    What steps can you take to be ready for any of the above?

    -pay off your debts, have some cash on hand (a couple of hundred dollars at least)
    -have 72 hours worth of food and water, always
    -prepare lists of what to grab and go with in case of an evacuation

    Now, the next question is which of the above is *MOST* likely to occur? Probably the natural disaster. Solution? 72 hour kit + generator + gas + cash on hand

    You may disagree, but in my experience, the above is the most likely scenario that you need to be ready for.

    NS
