Another quite likely scenario: China decides it doesn't want to buy anymore of the US's extravigant debt. They just say NO MORE>>

So, the government stops, it could just 'print' more bills, but the monitary system implodes..
The banks are closed to stop runs on the banks for 'cash'.
Food stamps, and welfare payments stop.


So how long before the cities erupt in violence, food riots?

And how long before we have 'Mad Max and the THunderdome' in every state??

There are lots of scenarios..

What happens when the big volcano under Yellowstone park decides to 'burp' and spew enough ash to have a 3" blanket of ash covering all the ground east of the rockies?? and the sun is obscured by the ash in the atomosphere..
Anyone read about the 'summer that wasn't?? sometime in the late 1800's when a big volcano blew in the pacific.. ? Krakatoa?? sp?

What would happend if all our north american crops failed for one or two years, due to too little sunlight??

Food for thought about food to eat !!

Makes me think I need to rethink my 'lots of land to plant for food crops'... hmm..

What I've been told is that while the level of radiation in the air is considered safe for human survival that same radiation will contaminate the top soil for many years to come. Kicking up the dust will not be a good thing. That means food grown there may not be edible. On top of that will anyone have seeds to plant or the farm equipment to farm large acreages. Think about it - we will have been thrown back into the mid-1800 where a family had a 20 acre farm and was maxed out in their efforts just feeding themselves. Will there be pollinators around to even make farming possible? Serious, things to think about indeed. Lisa

Already bought our tombstone just in case I don't get around to it. Had "Oh $*IT" engraved on the back!

I guess it all depends on ones definition of a doomsday, if it means becoming a bit more self sufficient a making adjustments to a cushy lifestyle then it might be worth preparing for but if it is actually a doomsday it the sense of if not rapid at least eventual end to earth & life as we know it then whats the point? Might not even have enough time to finish one beer.

Taking a cyanide capsule may be the only smart thing to do if a true catastrophic event were to occur. :sick:

Hmm, maybe I should have clarified my statement...lol

If a VIE 7 or 8 sized event were to occur from the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera I would consider ending the lives of myself and my family IF they agreed. I'm not talking Joseph and Magda Goebbels here, we would all have to agree.

If the power grid were to simply fail, then no, we would fight on and survive as we are prepared more than most.

William W Johnstone has a book series (Out of the Ashes) Kensington Books. Interesting read. Fiction of course. Hmmm:(, I wonder.

So, just being a dumb old farmer, I guess I also should clarify. Not knowing or caring what a VIE or the Yellowstone caldera is & after talking to my 22 yr old daughter & family in FL. last night about all this projected fiasco--- AGAIN, I don't think so! She did ask how the ammo situation is looking.AAAhh, the lil girl makes her dad proud. ;)

I gotta say this EWF, if per say, due to nuclear, mutants were coming at my family & we had expired all resources, it would not be a voting situation! It would be a painless demise initiated by myself. Get done with the libber crap & grow some gonads. THERE, I feel better. :D

Me too! And when I'm out of ammo....well that will take quite a while. ;) Like Greg, I'm only about 45 minutes from the big city. Once the doo-doo hits the fan and the city dwellers start scattering like roaches from the city to the country and start pillaging, there will be defensive perimeters established. My neighborhood is small. One way in and one way out. Easy to blockade. Neighbors are well armed to say the least.

Now hold on there, radiation, riots, calderas blowing having to heat/cook just with coal - that's OK. Does the grid collapse mean my Golf 98 arcade game that I found at an auction would stop working? That is an extinction event that I have no answer for.
