We've mentioned Michael Yon's calls to stock up on food and other essential supplies on several occasions in these pages. Now he provides two images that illustrate the extent of the problem in most stores today. Click either image for a larger view.
He calls it "commie stocking", and warns:
This is how they did it during my years in communists countries. Only it was 100x worse. We moving that direction week by week.
Couldn't agree more, as I've said in these pages many, many times. If you haven't started building up a reserve supply of food yet, it may be too late for serious efforts, because things are getting worse, not better. Nevertheless, better late than never. Start now.
If you look around the Internet, you'll find plenty of images of store shelves that are either completely bare, or far less filled than they usually are. It's nationwide. It's not "hoarding" or "panic buying" to take heed of that reality, and do your best to insulate yourself and your family against it - it's common sense.
