Preparedness or Hoarding?

by / Wednesday, 07 January 2009 / Published in Food Storage, Self-Sufficiency

People of this greatly country have been badly misinformed by the mass media about what actually constitutes “hoarding.” By preparing and stockpiling several months in advance, you do not contribute to any shortages. Supply chains are continuously replenished when there is no crisis at hand. So, by buying and storing supplies, food, ammunition, and gas well in advance, you are actually helping to alleviate the short-term supply disruption when disaster hits.

Only the people that buy a disproportionately large supply during a crisis could be legitimately labeled as “hoarders.” People who prepare well in advance are not part of the problem but are rather part of the solution since by having extra on hand, they can dispense charitably.

    I believe it is our responsibility to be prepared for that which is to come. When is NOW the time to invest in our own ‘Peace of Mind.’ I want to be able to sleep when the winds begin to blow, don’t you? We must start now while there is time.
