More Than Half Of All Americans "Plan To Stockpile Food And Other Essentials" For The Chaotic Months Ahead
[link to www.zerohedge.com (secure)]


There was a time when preppers were relentlessly mocked, but nobody is laughing now.

Today, most Americans are thinking about stockpiling food, and this massive shift in our national mindset has been sparked by concern about what is going to happen in the months ahead.

Many Americans believe that another wave of the coronavirus pandemic is coming, others believe that our ongoing economic depression will get even deeper, and yet others are convinced that the upcoming election could produce widespread violence. Of course there have always been people that have been deeply alarmed about future events, but we have never seen anything quite like this.



Slightly more than half of Americans in a recent poll from Sports and Leisure Research Group say they already have or plan to stockpile food and other essentials. The chief reason: fears of a resurgent pandemic, which could lead to disruptions such as new restrictions on businesses. On Oct. 2, the number of COVID-19 cases in the USA was its highest in almost two months.

People still remember the shortages that we witnessed earlier this year when the coronavirus pandemic first erupted in this country, and those that ended up being stuck at home without enough toilet paper would rather not repeat that experience

I'm planing on confiscating their illegal stockpiles as Holocuast reparations.

I have new clients tell me they're waiting on the results of the election before committing to anything with me, telling me if Trump is reelected they're going into hiding or some bullshit like that.

They're no longer prospective clients of mine because I've deleted them. Who the hell would want Biden supporters as clients?

If they're smart, they're stockpiling supplies, but not telling anybody (including you) about it.

I live in a major West Coast city, and expect serious civil unrest following a Trump victory. My own neighborhood was undisturbed by the George Floyd protests, and I expect it to remain so, but if things get crazy and we have another big wave of Covid cases, I'd rather not be out on the streets any more than absolutely necessary. So I'm re-stocking my supplies with that in mind.

I still have plenty of toilet paper, though. I stocked up at the end of January when things were getting really hairy over in Wuhan, and enjoyed a good laugh when everybody else was lost their collective minds a month later.
