The President of the United States just announced that “there’s gonna be another pandemic.” Amid historic government spending and subsequently historic inflation, he said he needs more money “to plan for the second pandemic.” As though it’s already been decided that there will be one and we simply need to work that into the budget.
Wow, talk about a “plandemic.” But if the President is planning another pandemic, you should likewise be planning to endure the pandemic he’s planning. Are you prepared?
I know it’s tough to get yourself prepared when the price of everything is up, but there are some basic things you can be doing to prepare your family. Start by brainstorming essentials that you need for your family. Not things you might want, but things you’ll actually need. For example, if you have a baby, you’ll need diapers. If you have any kind of medical condition, you’ll need supplies or medicine for that.
Food is, of course, an absolute necessity. But limited fridge and freezer space affect how much perishable food you may be able to buy ahead of time. Here’s a link to a Chicks deal through My Patriot Supply for a 3-month emergency food supply kit, which is a convenient option. Also consider dried or canned foods you can store in a closet, corner, or basement. My list always includes various beans (I like ranch style beans because they have a sauce that can flavor a meal), veggies (corn, green beans, potatoes, and sliced carrots are versatile), fruits (peaches, mandarine oranges, applesauce, and pineapple are easy options), meats (tuna and chicken are our favorites), and grains/starches (bags of rice, boxes of pasta, instant potatoes, and bags of flour).
Another major consideration is water. Plandemic or not, you should have water storage. Bottled store bought water, water filters, and water purifying tablets are great options for drinking water, but I like to also store some non-drinking water in case a need arises. When our family finishes a gallon jug of any liquid, I wash the jug and fill it with water for storage for things like flushing toilets, washing things, etc.
After you’ve considered all these things, make a list of things your family would actually eat and use, because there’s no sense in storing things your family won’t use. Put those items on a list which you will bring with you to the store each time you go between now and the announcement of the start of Biden’s next plandemic, and buy an item or two each time with your normal grocery items. Remember to include all the things you determined were needs, including medical supplies, diapers, etc. If finances are tight, consider if there is anything you were going to buy that is simply a convenience or a “want” rather than an actual necessity, and replace that item with one of your storage items.
This kind of preparation will serve you not only in the event of a plandemic, but also various natural disasters that might strand you, leave you without power, or otherwise interrupt your normal life, as well as things like loss of a job or catastrophic accident.
I sincerely hope we have all learned a valuable lesson from Covid these last two and a half years, and that we will implement the preparation lessons we have learned. Do not leave yourself and your family at the mercy of the federal government in a time of emergency. Prepare your family to be able to take care of yourself despite the best efforts of the government to make things more difficult for you rather than assuming that the government will take care of you. Because they won’t.
