Whenever I hear some pin-headed newsperson or criminally insane Washington kleptocrat call out a war cry against a noun, like the war on illiteracy or the war on drugs, I chuckle a bit at their foolishness with regards to word choice. http://www.thriftculturenow.com

  1. 1. 2011[THE WAR ON RISING A FOOD PRICES: A PRE EMPTIVESTRIKE – LEARN TO COOK]
  2. 2. The War on Rising Food Prices: a Pre-Emptive Strike – learn to cookWhenever I hear some pin-headed newsperson or criminally insane Washingtonkleptocrat call out a war cry against a noun, like the war on illiteracy or the war on drugs,I chuckle a bit at their foolishness with regards to word choice.But, I think it’s important to face fears, so I’ve entitled this article similarly by wagingwar on an economic phenomenon that we are experiencing now, that may be (definitely)being brought about by Government meddling into the currency markets – a.k.a printingtrillions upon trillions of currency units, not just U.S. dollars either, everything paper.On the hierarchy of needs, foods a pretty big deal in case you haven’t noticed.Food prices and oil prices run virtually in tandem if you like looking at charts. As thisnew craziness, this latest effort to destroy our fellow man, really gets hot, oil prices willbe stupid. It may become very impractical to drive a car and food prices will beaggravated times a thousand. Imagine a whole lot of very hungry Americans.Enter frustration and rage.So, what can you do? Outfit your entire living space with food producing plants andanimals for starters. Whatever you can do to produce food, just learn how to do it. Or, ifyou live in a place where you have zero options for this, you just move the hell out ofthere, ok? Move somewhere sunny and wet, outfit your roof with solar water heaters andgardens, have rain barrels, cisterns, raised beds with mini plastic or glass green housesover them, chicken coop, cold storage, root cellar, fish pond, sheep, goats, whatever ispractical. And you produce food.Learn basic knife skills, butchery, vegetable processing, baking, curing, roasting, stockssoups and sauce making, pickling and preserves. All of these skills will help you toreduce your overall annual food cost because you will be better prepared to deal withseasonal price fluctuations as well as any fluctuations in individual food stuffs, whichcould happen as regional governments meddle in the production and consumptions ofvarious products. Example: if Arnold in California declares no romaine lettuce is to beshipped out of the state, because he wants to hold onto it, the price is going through theroof everywhere else. Get used to cooking whatever is local and start figuring out whatother products/food stuffs you haven’t considered before, but which are suitable for yourclimate and region.If you understand food storage and production you may be better suited than most, toprotect yourself against rising food prices.Hunting is also very useful and practical. I am so shocked that wild boars are beingslaughtered in Texas and Missouri and elsewhere. Sure, slaughter them, but pull thethings out of the bush and use them. Cure them. I guarantee that the meat is delicious.Domesticated pig breeds, now wild and roaming the country side eating farmers crops
  3. 3. from the day they are born until the day they die, plus any delicious wild plants they mayeat.If I was allowed to kill those boars with no upper limit, I’d set up a proscuitto hambusiness and start killing. Some proscuitto hams, that people buy, are 60 years old! Meat,at room temperature, 60 years old! All you need is salt and a place to hang them for along time. This is top-quality delicious gourmet food and it can be yours, with a littlelearning and work.Practical skills of all sorts and grit are what’s going to make it in the years to come. Ithink practical people in the American countryside could thrive!Like that Hank Williams Jr. tune, Country Folks Will Survive, it’s their practical skillshe’s referring to, including food-related ones like how to skin a buck and run a trout line.Food is important, learn more about money saving tips.
