Buy Food. Now.

Farms, homes may be flooded to save New Orleans

"The city of New Orleans, like much of the South, is facing a threat from the rising waters. Tomorrow morning the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will open a major water diversion to try to protect the city,but it may not be enough.

WWL-TV correspondent Maya Rodriguez reports that for Louisiana farmers near the Mississippi River like Ted Glazer, their livelihood could be completely wiped in service of the greater good.

"When I see water on top of this, I don't know what I'm gonna do," said Glazer standing near his 800 acres of corn.

Glazer is one of thousands of people in Louisiana that will be affected by a flooded Mississippi River, cresting at levels not seen in over 80 years."

Let me just say that it's right in our faces and completely inescapable. The ability to grow food, feed for livestock, slaughter the animals and to be able to transport it to all areas of the US successfully is doomed this year.
Don't listen to the sideshow barkers selling emergency kits or food for a week - get all available funds together and stock up for at least a year, preferably longer. Get storable canned foods and dried legumes like beans and lentils while they're still relatively cheap but above all get rice.
I'm into the already canned foods right now because they were processed pre Fukushima. In a couple of months all canned foods will be suspect with deadly radioactive particles, if they'll even be on supermarket shelves.

Safe food will become extremely scarce soon. We'll look back on these days of abundance with sorrow that we didn't do what we could when we had the chance.
