Prepping in a Comic Strip?

The following comic strip ran in newspapers across the country in early June. It’s just as relevant today, if not more so.

  1. I am so glad to see you feature this cartoon. When serious themes like food independence appear in such a strip it indicates a major trend. The cartoonist once drew political cartoons and is tuned in to the public.

    In World War Two Victory Gardens, people grew one half of the vegetables consumed during the war years. As a child I watched chicks hatch from eggs and grow to maturity to lay eggs for our family.It was facinating to me. I remember food shortages and rationing. Our answer, community-wide, was such gardening efforts.

    Catherine Austin Fitts, a sophisticated person from government service under senior Bush and in her own consulting firm, now lives in a little town in rural Tennessee and has a vegetable garden. She stresses food independence for quality as well as security of supply.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts, Gerald.

      I hope more will take heed and follow the example of Ms. Fitts wherever possible.
