You are right about salt. Buy regular salt, buy sea salt, buy a couple of big salt blocks. It's not "if" SHTF but "when" it does. I'll go out on a limb here and say we won't make it through August. Watch for basics like milk and bread to go WAY up. Then just keep track of things you buy on a regular basis. You will be able to trade salt for other things you won't be able to find. And, watch for things in all food stores to be in low supply. There was once a 30 day food supply in the USA, counting on imports. Now it's more like 22 days. When things get flaky, watch the shelves empty out.<quoted text>
I agree. Also On your post to Prepper about salt being worth it's weight in gold, if the SHTF. It reminded me that salt is a natural perservative and would be a most valuable stockpile.
When you see the National Guard show up "for our protection against terrorism" look for some blue helmet NATO uniforms interspersed with them. There's a reason for that.
Let's all pray we make it until November. If we do, we should be OK.
