The War on Rising Food Prices:
a Pre-Emptive Strike – learn to cook
Whenever I hear some pin- headed newsperson or criminally insane Washington kleptocrat call out a war cry against a noun , like the war on illiteracy or the war on drugs i chuckle a bit their
foolishness with regards to word choice. But, I think it’s important to face fears, so I’ve entitled this article similarly by waging war on an economic phenomenon that
we are experiencing now, that may be (definitely) being brought about by Government meddling into the currency markets – a.k.a printing trillons upon
trillions of currency units, not just U.S. dollars either, everything paper.On the hierarchy of needs, foods a pretty big deal in case you haven’t noticed.
Food prices and oil pricesrun virtually in tandem if youlike looking at charts. As this new craziness, this latest effort to destroy our fellow man, really gets hot, oil prices will
be stupid. It may become very impractical to drive a car and food prices will be aggravated times a thousand. Imagine a whole lot of very hungry Americans.
Enter frustration and rage. So, what can you do? Outfit your entire living space with food producing plants and animals for starters. Whatever you can do to produce food,
just learn how to do it. Or, if you live in a place where you have zero options for this, you just move the hell out of there, ok? Move somewhere sunny and wet, outfit your roof with solar water heaters and gardens
have rain barrels, cisterns, raised beds with mini plastic or glass green houses over them, chicken coop, cold storage, root cellar, fish pond, sheep, goats, whatever is produce.And youproduce food.
Learn basic knife skills, butchery, vegetable processing, baking, curing, roasting, stocks soups and sauce making, pickling and preserves. All of these skills will help you to
reduce your overall annual food cost because you will be better prepared to deal with seasonal price fluctuations as well as any fluctuations in individual food stuffs, which could happen as regional governments meddles
in the production and consumptions of various products. Example: if Arnold in California declares no romaine lettuce is to be shipped out of the state, because he wants to hold onto it, the price is going through the roof every-
where else. Get used to cooking whatever is local and start figuring out what other products/food stuffs you haven’t considered before, but which are suitable for your climate and region.
If you understand food storage and production you may be better suited than most, to protect yourself against rising food prices. Hunting is also very useful and practical. If u understand
food storage and production you may be better suited than most, to protect yourself against rising food prices. Hunting is also very useful and practical. Domesticated pig breeds, now wild and roaming
the country side eating farmers crops from the day they are born until the day they die, plus any delicious wild plants they may eat. If I was allowed to kill those boars with no upper limit, I’d set up a proscuitto ham business and
start killing. Some proscuitto hams, that people buy, are 60 years old! Meat, at room temperature, 60 years old! All you need is salt and a place to hang them for a long time. This is top-quality delicious gourmet food and it can be yours, with a little learning and work.
Practical skills of all sorts and grit are what’s going to make it in the years to come. I think practical people in the American countryside could thrive! Like that Hank Williams Jr. tune,
Country Folks Will Survive, it’s their practical skills he’s referring to, including food-related ones like how to skin a buck and run a trout line. Food is important.
