    This is all but guaranteed. What bailout? We got into this mess because idiot's overspent on something they couldn't afford in the first place, with money they didn't have. Then along came bigger idiot's who lent it to them. They can't pay back the loans because what they bought isn't worth what they paid, and to frost the cake, these idiot's can't make the payments because they were stupid enough to agree to a rate they had no control over to begin with. Now the government, who is broke and almost 9 TRILLION in debt already, is going to borrow $700 billion more to do what? Create even more debt by buying bad loans. This we are told, will, "free up more money for lending". To who? To buy what? This is how this whole mess got started. It would be laughable if it wasn't true. You've got 80+% of the people out there with little to no net worth, and they can't make the payments on what they don't already own. We're finished. They piss and moan about Wall Street. They didn't cause this, the idiot's in your and my neighborhoods did. This will get worse than anyone even remotely believes. This entire nations economy will collapse because it is based on nothing but debt that cannot be paid back, and with it much of the worlds economy, except for, you guessed it, our loving buddies, the Muslims in the oil rich Middle East. They'll still be sprinkling gold dust on their Capuchino, while our government borrows more money to purchase paper and ink for the Mint. Better stock up on ammo now! Later, you tell me? Bill T.

    I'm buying 50rds of .45 and every paycheck, have plenty of .22LR on hand, saving for AR/ammo come January. Gonna pick up some cheap turkey loads for the Mossy 500. Have a few MRE's leftover from my active duty days, have 10 more lbs of ground chuck to dehydrate into jerky. I'm almost ready!!

    Yes, been stocking up. Built a bicycle generator, a 12/24 volt charging system, been puting low sodium canned food away and been reloading every time I find components. Looking for a low priced deer lease, our group lost the one we've been going to. Been making Faraday cages, and started some square foot gardening. Found a source of heater meals. Who knows what's coming next.

    Well, sort of. When we bought our ranch (eventual retirement property) this year, we *bought* it. We were encouraged to finance it by our realtor and, of course, Capital Farm Credit; but we wanted to know that we had a place that was OURS, regardless of what happens in the economy, or with the zombies, or flying feces in the ventilation system.

    Stocking up is a tough thing to do in a meaningful sense. For one thing, I can't "stock up" on the medicines that I may no longer be able to afford, or that might, in the worst case, not even be available. Nor can actually put away enormous amounts of food; I don't have the space to keep it, and now that half my house is going to be emptied out for mold remediation post-Ike, I'll be lucky to have room for what I *have*.

    Stocking up is a whole lot more than ammunition, unless you intend to use it as barter to buy food and fuel.

    You realize that this is the USA. No one "owns" property no matter what. Try not paying taxes on it and see what happens. You will always pay for it.

    When you think about it, the American Dream is just that, a dream.... :patriot:

    But congrat's on doing something most people can't and what most people that can, won't do. Regardless, it's got to be a great feeling!! ;)

    As for stocking up, well, i dont think it will get as bad as a post apocalyptic movie like I Am Legend.
