Hunters might like this one...

I don't hunt, but still got a kick out of the quote below, which was sent to me in an e-mail as a picture of a newspaper with the quote marked:

"To all you hunters who kill animals for food, shame on you; you ought to go to the store and buy the meat that was made there, where no animals were harmed."

Hunting and gathering information in this person's case might be in order. I know I'm always looking for more... :)

LOL! A young woman almost 20 came to our farm and saw the animals and said "how cute!". She then asked what we do with them!

My husband told her they are for the family, whether it be for wool, eggs, or meat. She was horrified. She has since married and her husband buys eggs from us, but she refuses. She buys her eggs from the store- as your joke implied...where everything magically appears!

Humble wife--I can't claim to know how to butcher animals and/or harvest meat from hunting, but I do know where it comes from--makes me admire farmers and hunters all the more...
As for people who might realistically think this way (the photo in the e-mail looked like an actual paper) I hope someone explains things to them before an emergency happens, and there's nothing left in the store--as you say, where everything magically appears! Thanks very much for your comment!

Ditto to what Kymber said.

It never fails to amaze me, as time goes on, how much people, as a whole, are becoming more and more dependent on the "system".

We hunt, fish, garden, can, dehydrate, harvest all the wild growing food that we are able to.

Increasing our livestock holdings are next.

Whatever will the general populace do when the food deliveries stop?

I am so very thankful to God for my wife. Without a compatible mate, prepping for.....whatever, would be nigh impossible.

I am a truly blessed man.

Bob--I would welcome any posts you wanted to do here--it sounds like you and your wife are ahead of me in your skills! We don't have livestock, and don't hunt, but our preparation has to take that into account when we are thinking about what we would do in an emergency or hard times...that may be a post upcoming! :)
I've read about people having different opinions about emergency preparation, and I'm glad that my husband and I agree about the importance of it. Here's hoping the general populace is preparing too, more than we know... :) Thanks for your comment!

Isn't that just unbelievable??? Laughable. Friday is a great day to laugh and be less serious, so on that note, enjoy! http://tinyurl.com/cr7u6n

Preparednesspro--I hope this is a joke--but if it's not, then it's pretty sad...Thanks for your comment, and for leaving the link!
