Re: 10% of americans starved to death in the first great depression
7 Million Americans starved to death during the Great Depression, but there is no need for that.

It is damn near IMPOSSIBLE to starve to death in America if you keep your cool and use your head. America is rich with food for those who know where to look for it:

Forest foraging
Dumpster Diving
Homeless Shelters and Soup Kitchens
Food Stamps
Backyard Gardens
Farm Fields
Church Food Banks

The greatest challenge is the winter, however one can simply educate their self on where to forage for food in the winter to rid their self of this problem. Here is an example of winter foraged foods: [link to botany.suite101.com]

If you live in a location that is poor for foraging you can simply migrate, but REMEMBER: If you are forced from the cities into the countryside for food you are walking into a highly armed camp of extremely friendly folks who can turn wicked as all hell if they feel threatened.

Forest foraging --- government takes over all lands and bans entry without checkpoints

Hunting --- See above (only the elite can hunt)

Fishing --- Okay, maybe some carp and bluegills and catfish

Dumpster Diving --- newer dumpsters are "diving-proofed"

Backyard Gardens --- Need to get calorie smart very quick to be totally self-sufficient

Farm Fields and fallow fields --- Possibility for some, if they have the means to get there and back safely, etc.

What is the "etc"?
