    Fried mush will save you. Meal and water and you let it set up and just slice it out and fry it it's like hush puppies and you can put a little sugar in it and if you have syrup makes good breakfast.




    My grand parents said the same thing about the depression that they didn't notice anything different because they were already poor

    My grandparents used old jelly jars for glasses, old cool whip containers for Tupperware, grew their own food, canned everything. My great grandmother would write to a charity in NYC to send shoes for her nine kids to wear each winter. In the summer they went barefoot. It was tough times.

    The dollar currency is going to fail during the soon upcoming depression. You must get some silver and gold if you want to preserve any wealth.

    I am a semi retired Electrician, and mechanical contractor. My father was a master plumber & grandpa too, all of us worked as multi skilled mechanical contractors. Years ago, I built a log cottage with 8 rooms alone, kit form. If the poop hits the fan, my hunting skills would be an asset to a group. What many folks don't think about, is the rebuild after stability comes back. If you can do or train others to do urgent things you will be invalueable. The first thing the nation will need is a power grid, and drinking water from the faucet again. Prepping is wise, but what are YOU going to do to help rebuild our nation 1.5 years in ?? You can live in a FEMA camp, or you can use your skills to bring back civilization to America.

    Never give a zealot coach any guff. Circa 1968 my diploma was torn in front of my parents. Just short of graduation. Could not get and keep a job thanks to coach. I had thread bare clothes. And used card board on. My shoes, and lucky to get a meal a day. I got a taste of what they went thrugh. And they ment it. got drafted. my world turned around. New boots, clothes, and food. I know the depression and got a taste what my parents had. Wanting to carry out the coaches wishes. ps I am great full to the army. Sgt Williams retired ( slacker turned winner)

    00:09 - That house does not meet building codes. Today they would be forcefully evicted at gunpoint by government employees. Think they had it rough back in the great depression ? We will have it much much harder when it is time for our greater depression.

    You need to hug a tree wth do you think is gonna keep your ass alive for real if a shtf event happens!!! Whether it be food fire shelter or air, I'm not technically a tree hugger either fyi. But don't see it as a negative attribute to life at least not as bad as the alternatives

    If it hadn't been for FDR this country would have had a revolution. FDR put MILLIONS of people in this nation to work on countless public projects such as the Hoover Dam and building bridges and roads.
    My late mother told me an awful LOT about what she and her other brothers and sisters did to survive.
    If this country ever had another Great Depression MOST of the people would DIE.

    The Depression lasted 10 years-how did things start to go right? How did people pull out of that?

    I grew up with this saying:
    Use it up,
    Wear it out,
    Make it do,
    Do with out.
    And "just do it."
    Do it to yourself.
    Still doing it!

    I was born in October 1942, but I was told about the Depression, and I read about it. Grapes of Wrath. My relatives lost their savings, when the banks failed.

    This year we are going to have a full garden and try to save our seeds to grow with next year. I've gotten pressure canning down, which is a huge life skill I am proud to have under my belt. I can already knit, crochet and sew, grow my own food with a very good success rate. We're putting in a root cellar this year and I'll be canning up a ton more food over this whole year on top of getting more dried goods to have on hand. My goal is to make our own sourdough bread before springtime.

    What is held from us is the fact that 7 million Americans died from starvation and violence during the 10 years of the great depression. My uncle was one who died walking from town to town looking for work but couldn't find any. Just last year a good friend of mine, Norman died from starvation after losing his home and job here in Hudson Florida. I fed him and helped him stay warm but he became so weak that he died in the bushes not two blocks from my house. The Depression IS HERE NOW.
