Food Riots Are Coming As Costs Soar. Are You Prepared?
The best measure of the health of the world’s economy is the Baltic Dry Index (BDI). After reaching record lows in March of 2015, the BDI briefly rallied. However, that rally appears to have been no more than the traditional “dead man’s bounce”. Reports from October 15, 2015, indicate another downward spiraling plunge is underway, once again.
The major danger associated with a flat BDI is that it indicates that credit is hard to obtain. Obtaining credit is a prerequisite to shipping product, namely, food. According to the persistent low BDI figures, America is an economic setback from the total disruption of food shipments.
A record low BDI is a bigger threat to the American people than the military activities of the Chinese and the Russians. Americans could go to bed this Friday night and by Monday, the food shelves could be empty. Mass starvation would commence within days. This is America’s biggest national security threat.
Almost beyond belief, a full 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase typically buy cheap, unhealthy food and still just have enough to feed their children. The price of food continues to quickly out-pace the paychecks of most middle class families. For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $5.88 per pound! There are nearly 50 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in various degrees of distress. Just over one out of seven Americans rely on obtaining food from various banks at one point or another and these food banks are beginning to experience record shortages.
In a case of “defend the nation and starve”, military families are feeling even more stress from not being able to obtain sufficient quantities of food as 25% of America military families require outside assistance in getting enough to eat. What does this say about an administration which uses our soldiers to defend the nation and then kicks them to the curb by denying their VA health benefits as the government also starves their families because they cannot survive on what we pay our soldiers? This is disgraceful, but it is the Obama fundamental transformation of American way!
