WEB Notes: So why did the urgency leave the government to protect itself and citizens in the event of an emergency? In the case of economic collapse, this will make that collapse much more difficult to bear. Food Banks are already pressed to the limits in this nation. This is why it is always wise to have a little more around your home for hard times that may come ahead. It could be a storm that comes through your area and destroys the food chain for awhile.
Source: Economic Collapse Blog | Once upon a time, it was popular to say that the U.S. government only had enough wheat stored up to provide everyone in America with half a loaf of bread. But that is not true anymore. Recently, I discovered that the U.S. does not have any strategic grain reserves left at all. Zero. Nada. Zilch. As you will see below, the USDA liquidated the remaining reserves back in 2008. So if a major food crisis hit this country, our government would have nothing to give us. Of course the federal government could always go out and try to buy or seize food to feed the population during a major emergency, but that wouldn’t actually increase the total amount of food that was available. Instead, it would just give the government more power over who gets it.
