It is with great love and concern that I forward the following message that I hope you will take the time to read and do something about it! What am I suggesting? That you obtain a good stock of both food, water & medical supplies and store them. The information contained in this article is not new to many of you and you are aware of the increased weather changes that are occurring as I write and you read. All indications are that we are in for a hard winter and if you are prepared then there will not be a problem. I have lived through Hurricanes, floods and tornados in this lifetime and God only knows what in other lifetimes.
I have seen Supermarket shelves completely emptied in less than 20 minutes and that could happen at anytime no matter where you are. So please love yourself and your family and prepare.
Love, blessings & peace,
Subject: Food Supply in the
US Food Riots Closer Than You Think
By Robert Felix
I spent about thirty years working in commercial agribusiness. My main job was to purchase ingredients, mainly grain, for flour mills and animal feed mills. As a part of my job, I was forced to understand the

-- Nearly all Americans know essentially nothing about where the food they eat every day comes from. How it gets from the ground to them. And they don't want to know about it. It's cheap, as close as their local store, and of high quality. So no worries.
-- The bulk of the food we eat comes from grain. Although they raise a lot of fruits and vegetables in
Half of what a meat animal is raised on is grain so when you eat meat you are really eating grain. And, of course, we eat grain directly as bread, bagels, doughnuts, pasta, etc. Milk (and milk products like cheese) comes from cows that eat grain. A lot of grain. And the grain they eat is not produced where the cows are located.
-- The lion's share of grain produced in the
this area). The grain is moved to the coasts (where 70% of the population live) by only TWO (2) railroads.
-- Nothing is stored for very long in a supermarket. One day grain travels (by rail) from
mill makes the flour and sends it to a bakery. The next day the bakery makes it into bread (and other baked things) and the next day it is at the store where it is purchased that day. Nobody stores anything. The grain is produced and stored in the Midwest and shipped daily in a single railroad pipeline to the rest of
-- Up until the 1980s there was a system that stored a lot of grain in elevators around the country. At one time, a whole year's harvest of grain was stored that way. But since taxpayers were paying to store it, certain urban politicians engineered the movement of that money from providing a safety net or backup for their own food supply in order to give the money to various other social welfare things. So now, nothing is stored. We produce what we consume each year and store practically none of it. There is no contingency plan.
Now for my take on what this means for us.
-- If a drought such as has lingered over other parts of the US where little grain is grown were to move over the grain-producing states in the Midwest where few people live, it would seriously damage the food supply of the country and the apples of Washington, the lettuce of California, the grapefruit of Florida and the peanuts of Georgia won't make up the difference because grain is the staff of life and most of it is grown in the Midwest.
-- Americans are armed to the teeth. In LA people burned down their own neighborhoods to protest a court case.
--In order for riots to break out the whole food supply doesn't have to be wiped out. It just has to be threatened sufficiently. When people realize their vulnerability and the fact that there is no short term solution to a severe enough drought in the
So, basically, we have in place a recipe for a disaster that will dwarf any other localized disasters imaginable. The important thing to note is that there is no solution for this event. There is no contingency plan for this.
People living in certain parts of the
there are very, very few of them number-wise. And most of them haven't put two and two together yet, either.
It's likely too late for the government to do anything to prepare for such an event, so it probably won't do any good to try to lobby them for a solution. If they hopped right on it they could store up enough grain to be ready, but they won't. They're more concerned with urban political issues and invading other countries than they are about preserving the security of their own food supply. I guess the people who could prevent it have bunkers so that they can hide in when the 's' hits the fan.
