Odds ‘n Sods:

Reader M.M. mentioned this scary news article from England: Six Years of Below Average Harvests, Globally. He commented: “Harvests are less than the population eats for the sixth straight year and the warehoused surplus is almost gone. Famine or serious and aggressive agriculture are the two potential outcomes. If it goes like it has for the oil, the free food is over and the price of food will be bid up until demand is destroyed, such as a poor country doesn’t get its shipments. And that is that for them…” Meanwhile, reader Ben L. sent this corroborating piece from Rense.com. Ben says: “Let me say that info on that sites scares the h**l out of me! “… 15.7 pounds of reserved foodstuffs in the food-chain for every man, woman, and child in the United States”? Not per day, but total weight?
Forget the MBR, folks; time to start stocking-up on foodstuffs.” To this, I add my advice: stock up on storage food for your family, plus plenty of extra for barter and charity, muy pronto. Please patronize our advertisers first.

I just heard that there is a RWVA rifle shoot scheduled for September 910, in Stuart, Virginia. If you live anywhere near Virginia, be there! The RWVA offers great practical marksmanship training for a nominal fee.
