Rationing Food in SHTF. " Who Eats Last??? "

7 posts in this topic

My rules, if you part of a group & you don't help out, in work weather it's hunting, fishing, gardening, chopping fire wood, etc etc, your likely to be eating last, if anything for that day.

Get your lazy ass working, theirs work to be done.

Our dogs, apparently, can't hear my very loud command presence voice, when calling them back into the house at any time.

However, crack the fridge door at any time, and their keen sense of radar-hearing signals the Pavlovian-response of "treat time". 

They have also mastered the art of looking like starving refugee dogs from far away, abandoned by their owners.  And if the crisper drawer is opened (where we keep THE cheese), that's a signal to bark loudly and make a mad dash to the kitchen.

Maybe I should indeed move the gun safes to the kitchen for better "protection"? (Or use a refrigerator instead!)

edited to add: the oldest dog's nick name, is Fatty McButterPants. He's fast for an almost blind tubby GSD.

I like my critters seems like all of them have a personality I have chickens and each is an individual one has no fear when I go out she feeds out of the bowl while I spoon it into the others pan she will not eat with the others so I have a pan on top of a chick pen hanging off the ground to keep them from snakes and rats.

I also have rabbits certain ones are defensive of their cage and charge you, others like a scratch behind the ears they all like carrot and apple cabbage leaves or broccoli grapes what ever I an get on the cheap in season.

I have raised wrangled or handled about any kind of critter hunted or helped corral move or just for enjoyment watched or did camera studies.  hunting from a 22 short to a 458 Lott and many in between and above.

Dogs I have outlived quite a few better than I deserved and make me appreciate the animal kingdom all the more, it is amazing how people believe in evolution I think it is because of their ignorance in animal behavior because like humans you cannot pigeon hole any species as being a group mind like ants or insects they can be as much different from each other as Einstein from charles manson. I have fed he wildest of animals by hand while I would not attempt to get near some domesticated ones as they can be more aggressive or unpredictable than wild animals.

the longer I live the more impressed I am with Gods handiwork, I also know that a wild animals life comes to a savage end as all creatures are either enemies or in direct competition for food water habitat or shelter for the fools that are animal rights activists are not willing to comprehend that we live in a entropic world it all runs down and quits / dies and death is grim for any creature so for it to die from hunting or as food as long as the death is ure and quick as possible that is the best outcome otherwise it is as a prey of another or slow death from injury illness or disease and that is not limited to only the animals but humanity as well.

my current large dog has an affinity for finding snakes he has been bitten a few times but has protected me from copperheads moccasins and even people that have made the mistake of trespassing at night his shadow has keen hearing and because he is small a paranoia to alert his compadre to bumps in the night they are a team and a source of comfort and companionship for each other. Tehy hate the UPS truck I think it is genetic I have yet to have a dog that like any UPS driver or vehicle they tolerate the USPS delivery person as long as they do not reach over the fence. We had a meter reader she was a beauty and they loved on her she exuded some kind of aura that fascinated both of them her replacement not so much he just missed loosing part of an arm from the bigun and a savage ankle / calf attack from his shadow needles to say we now have a smart meter.

Dogs that are considered dangerous or people are no match for a pack of Dachshunds I have seen them make a black bear take to his heels as a kid I fished and hunted with a pair of black labs my boat was almost not big enough.

I have never had a dog that would not damn near take off a finger to get a hunk of cheese or bacon and that is the only time they get testy and snap at each other ...if a dog of mine does not try to get their treat they are going to the vet as they are either sick or crazy !!!

As far as it goes I eat last I feed and water my animals first then I make my meal I insure that I have a month to couple months supply of food for all of them I buy in bulk 20 to 50 pound sacks and keep them in a can or drum I augment with scraps or fresh excess vegetables from the garden or grass cuttings for the chickens rabbits have to have clean or washed food as they get worms I also keep on hand veterinary supplies for all of them and dogs can handle most human medications as per weight chickens medicated chick feed and garlic in their water crushed oyster shell laying pellets cracked corn mixed with scratch and medicated chick feed can even be used on grown chickens.

some of the list is liquid wormer Wazine

Gentian violet or purple medicine Iodine / betadine dog wormer /flea heartworm tabs benadryl peroxide sulfur dust diatomaceous earth and others.

I buy plenty of Sevin liquid bulk home Insecticide balanced fertilizer and miracle grow  bone meal quick lime etc.I have enough for a few seasons I also have tobacco and tea to make plant spray and use of certain plants like mint peppers etc to deter pests as well as more severe means :ph34r:

work smarter not harder stacked sticks with mud is as good as a log cabin double woven walls of willow or some long stalk plant back filled with mud mixed with rocks thatching grass digging a tunnel or cave with proper support in a hill there are a number of ways to make a shelter and not have to be Paul Bunyan or Egyptian stone cutter using 100 ton blocks sod houses Teepee's or even live under an old house if you ever been under pier and beam home most stay dry no matter the weather if the roof shed most of the water as homes will always be a source of interest if it looks habitable people will investigate it caves and tunnels have been used for millennia with proper engineering they can be almost impregnable by less than a small troop.

Food consumption need to be balanced with work over achievers or pyramid builders will loose the battle and until peace and civility return building a mansion is foolhardy IMHO as human intervention from cutting grass walking the same trail breaking branches stacking rocks or crushing greenery will show evidence of human use. learning to gather wild food and covering your tracks leaving false trails camp security policing your trash and being self aware will protect you from others all of this works into the food balance as if your under siege or being hunted your going to burn through resources and stores just as fast as over working passive trapping of fish fowl and small critters is easier to cover than the gut pile of a moose remember buzzards and crows can find a dead chipmunk and smell a gut pile from miles away over half of any animals is organs/ guts skin and bone fish need to be filleted  and the scrap left in the water anything unused of an animal need to be buried or diced dropped into a river or lake so the catfish can remove the evidence and they will over night. but not if you do not cut them up and you can use them as bait for a basket trap. if you intend to garden fox bear and wolf or coyote urine repels deer their guts attracts predators this is turning into a novel but I think most people get the gist....

    • I push the Jesus / Yeshua Savior and I push the King James version of the Bible, I am not against more modern English like the NIV to help get a handle on meaning. I "may" think the world is in or approaching end times BUT I am not a doomsday fatalist, the world ends for everyone, it's called death.  I care that people do not follow false christs or spiritual leaders, in order to avoid this read a Bible please use the King James and for some context a NIV but later I will explain my views.  Here is a WARNING !  Matthew 24:…3 While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will all this happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” 4 Jesus answered, “See to it that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. Mark 13:…4“Tell us, when will all these things happen ? And what will be the sign that they are about to be fulfilled ?” 5 Jesus began by telling them, “See to it that no one deceives you. 6 Many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am He,’ and will deceive many. Luke 17:22 Then He said to the disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. 23 People will tell you, ‘Look, there He is,’ or ‘Here He is.’ Do not go out or chase after them. 24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so will be the Son of Man in His day. Jesus knew he would be followed by counterfeits, this is another reason why I believed because who in the world would follow a poor carpenter who's end was on a cross mocked and killed for his acts of healing the sick, curing blindness, casting out demons raising the dead and, made no wealth from it. Stay away from doomsday profits NO ONE KNOWS THE DAY OR THE HOUR. Live like a decent honorable human being give what you can afford of time or money DO NOT ABANDON YOUR PARENTAL OR MARITAL DUTIES OR THOSE TO YOUR FAMILY.  Pray for others not yourself God knows what you need. act like your a follower and boy that's hard the world is not a nice place many of us lived so long in the world, we fall back into it so easily well that's going to happen your not perfect nor am I. Too many cults and false profits are around, some are just mistaken but have a want to do something positive but, is that teaching they do line up with the "WORD". Once saved always saved a Baptist belief it's true but not if you reject the saving grace of Christ you gave it away IMHO now as far as anyone able to interfere or take it from you NOT GOING TO HAPPEN as long as when you sin you ask forgiveness and do your best  not to do it again, Salvation is not a license to sin IMHO. I recently left a church because of that "grace" philosophy and the word Shikina this word is a feminine word and it was used in context with the Glory of God there is no feminine in the God head of the Father Jehovah, Yeshua   (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit, there are no female angels we do not turn into angels when we die, angels are servants of God and do his will and they are sent to help us but only at the direction of God. They are not to be worshiped they will not allow it. If your confronted by a spirit your suppose to question it, "in who's name have you come ? " People can lie spirits must all subject themselves to Jesus (Yeshua)  Christ is a title meaning anointed, If you rebuke something in the name of Jesus / Yeshua it cannot stay if it is not of God. God is a Spirit Jesus is the physical embodiment of God and in the Bible states nothing was made without HIM Jesus The holy Spirit is part of the Trinity NO one knows how or why the 3 are one act as one cannot be divided are not in confusion are all knowing all seeing and all powerful Period. If you can't wrap your mind around that your in good company no one can we just accept this if we are believers. A pastor is important but, they are just like anyone else they can and do sin some are no more believers than a stick using their position to fill their pockets and be important but we ( the faithful are supposed to be vigilant / watchful study the scriptures) to prevent our making mistakes or when we realize we have made a mistake change course repent and do as we should. People are full of beanie weenies some religions I think never read a Bible some have such weird beliefs that are NOT in the King James at all nowhere to be found. Why the King James because because it is the closest to the original from the original text under the rules of copyright a text has to contain 10% different content to be considered an original work (paraphrased) so in the recent years just what has changed, you would be surprised some would not even make a good door stop or level a crooked table IMHO.    If you have not read your Bible or asked and know what it's mission statement or belief is you may be in a trap a psychological one those are almost impossible to escape because the bars are invisible and many times it's a social club of your friends or family if a group does not follow Biblical teachings and many do 99% but it really depends on that 1% or more they ignore or refuse to follow or believe that's important --so watch how you go, it's important because all of us will die and we live forever either as a Saint or unsaved sinner those are the only choices that mean anything and the world is filling up with agnostics, skeptics, witches and false religions choose rightly or face the consequences as in all your other life decisions, there are consequences.  
    • less than an hour on cults political ones, you may see parallels to the growing socialism communist and religious cults. I was completely aghast at the commercial for he Chinese opera or Shen Yun, Americans we so snake fascinated with the acrobatics costumes and choreography they forgot why these Chinese do this, to escape tedious factory jobs that are so horrible that safety nets have to be installed on buildings to prevent workers from jumping to their death to escape grueling 16 to 20 hour shifts sleeping on the floors and eating what is given them some are not even paid it is forced slavery. This has been reported by all the main stream news most peoples cell phones are made by these companies sold in America for big money. My disgust with these damn fools that praised and gushed about the Chinese troop was they have not a friggin' glimmer of just how horrible living under Chinese rule if you do not have skills money or position or family endeavors because if you don't your meat power saving does not concern a country with over a billion people they still work by hand with no Social services for simple workers. Those that have no family are less than dogs. People rallied against many pop personalities when they found they had clothing or products made in labor camps, but because it's pretty and action packed with lots of exotic music these educated fools urinate themselves on how wonderful the sow is. This is no less brain washing than the application of torture just stupid people pay for the privilege to be mind controlled into thinking that China is a wonderful exotic place, I have been there get off the main streets and your find a whole new China censors do not like you videoing, a country that controls how many children you can have and turns a blind eye to the killing of female children as they are not as valuable is some kind of sick. North Korea has gotten a bad rap because China is just as bad we are just not allowed to see it.  this film is from the BBC hits a lot of mind control issues and just how gullible people are / can be. 55:47  
    • First let me say this is the worst idea EVER, Recidivism is caused by -- wait for it GANGS Gangs rule the prison they rule in the streets, if your a convict your forced into a gang for self defense / protection because of the racism Gangs have rules most hate gays they may pimp them out and use them but they are not equals to other convicts. When you leave prison your on parole they do not like you out without a leash, your not able to get jobs because your a criminal and with a 70% recidivism / return rate. If you failed math that's 7 out of 10, there are so many stories where do-gooders have hired ex-cons and been murdered and or robbed they have corrupted other workers started families and end up back in the joint leaving their spouse and children on the welfare roles. We have all heard where ex-cons kill their significant other rare bt it happens their own children. Hide and watch if the federal government does not make it mandatory to hire eveyone regardless / even if they are ex-cons. To what degree can small business protect themselves from being forced to hire murderers and known gang members, remember gang members who have sworn a blood in blood out pact, you leave feet first DEAD the same gangs inside are outside and they demand "rent" as a member you have to produce if you don't it's a beating if you continue to disrespect the gang (not paying rent) and make it look like the leadership is weak they kill them HORRIBLY to instill fear into the rest. Again government is about to launch a do-gooder plan that will end up being run by morons bureaucrats and we have all see it where judges take sexual favors to get lenient treatment for their crime or for their spouses crime, so this will be ripe for bribes and those that take bribes they will get blackmailed. LMAO in hsort order the gangs will be in charge of the Pardons and Paroles system and many of the bureaucrats hat can help them along the process. The numbers won't change on recidivism unless we EXECUTE gang leaders because all gang leaders have murdered or ordered murders -- you don't get to be top dog unless you kill something, usually your own kind. You cannot trust the judiciary because some judges are liberal miss using the law to social engineer from the bench, we have seen this by judges letting pedophiles off with the least sentence they can give. look at the  Kathryn Steinle shot and killed by a illegal alien who was acquitted by a sick perverted system. I am sorry to say this is one issue Trump needs to get some real insight on before he backs this bill, I'm available, call anytime.
    • Psychologists IMHO have never healed any patient, now the have medicated them or managed them but  if they were paid by the success rate they would be dead broke. In order to prove a theory are willing to injure people for life to prove their point. What Nazi's did was demented but much worse has been done in the name of science and paid for by our government or some corporation to spin off a narrative that benefits them, using these same doctors and psychologists.  It is high time Americans reject these snake oil sellers and remember that these are the same people that want to drop the age of consent to 14 or lower if they had the power to do so. I understand medicating people for illness, and we need them as specialists for that purpose, let me remind people that most of the drugs used to treat the mentally challenged are detrimental to their health it is a balancing act as to the harm the drugs do to the welfare of the patient over time.   Recent experiments on Americans around 2011 what else are we not being told ? Really sick experiments on Americans that harmed people for the rest of their lives. More information on government, science and Americans being used as lab rats-- and it's legal unless they get caught.   5 part series on human experimentation against Americans   More crap on drug advertising    
    • Stanford College did experiments paid for by the Navy so it's not just the police but anyone can be corrupted by power or a system if they allow it, but if you buck the system prepare to face life and death consequences. Here are the shocking videos Governments are not anymore responsible than individuals
