So, as of today, there's food and goods on the store shelves, fuel at the gas stations, the power and water are on at home, the roads and schools and markets are open, and workers get paid in US dollars, and people and merchants accept them as payment for goods and services. (and it' doesn't take a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy groceries)

Also, no Zombies in sight.. (edited to add: but keep an eye on those "occupiers" image)

    IMO, SHTF when Mel Gibson rides a motorbike. Even the Great Depression was not a SHTF scenerio.

    And most of us should not even be concerned with such a scenerio, as most will be dead. Many people think they are prepared, but they not. Even if you have 20 guns and a flame thrower, could you stop 200 people from advancing. Even if you have 2000 ounces of gold, what would you do if your neighbor doesnt want to sell you a side of beef? Even if you live on a farm, how will you heat your house in the winter or operate your tractor if you can not procure diesel fuel? You see, these scenerios are so far fetched, that they in all probablity will not occur. So why worry about it?

    People have lived in much worse times than we will ever see---unless a comet hits us--and humankind has emerged more prosperous than before.

    What you wrote has happened continously since 1945. And way before that if you exclude the radiation thing. And I disagree with the USA being insolvent. The USA is worth $100 of trillions--How much you think we could get for that little island called Manhattan, or that big cold block of land called Alaska? How much would China pay for Kansas so they could feed all their people?

    How do you define SHTF?

    I provided a few definitions in the OP, but am open to others. Maybe we all have different definitions of Shiznit and Fans..

    Personally, I will start to get worried if I notice changes in my corner of the world that are apparent even without looking at the TV, computer, or newspaper.

    Nobody is prepared for the worst case scenario if it all comes crashing down, and I mean no one and I mean all of it. If you have a big stash of silver or gold and you're dependent on selling/trading said silver or gold for necessities to survive for any length of time after about a month, you are not prepared.

    On the other hand, other than gas going up a little and some groceries rising in price from time to time, everything is looking pretty good where I live. I'm with Baley.

    Completely agree. Now this is the definition of a shtf scenario. When too many people descend on your home to take what's yours regardless of how much ammo you have, then the S has hit the Fan. The only survivors will be those in organized gangs and hoards who are doing the descending "unto others." But eventually even the hoards will turn on themselves.
    Who wants to live another day in such a scenario as you huddle in your house waiting to be descended upon?

    But...with the intial word of a bad scenario coming at us....those store shelves will be empty within 24 hrs. If you're reading about it here, it's way too late to stock up.

    The US Govt can own anything it wants. Emminent domain. But to make it easier to understand, how much is the oil in the Arctic Natl WildlLife Refuge, or the freshwater in the Everglades worth to China? Im sure they'd like to have both and are owned by the USA.

    In 1941 the G told Boeing they were no longer making civilian aircraft and would now be making fighter planes. Same deal for General Motors. If you dont like, too bad.

    In a SHTF scenerio, those in power in the US would do whatever it took to ensure THEIR survival, even if it meant selling YOUR home. Could you protect it?

    I probably have seen too many Mad Max movies....lol.

    But if your neighbors weren't as prepared as you were, are you ready to share your 6-12 month supply of food, water, fuel, and/or ammo to get them all through a week or two? If so, then you're in a shtf scenario in week 2. If not, you're in a shtf scenario on day 1. I don't think most neighbors these days are as friendly as you see them on the Waltons or Dukes of Hazzard or even in Mayberry. My lakeside community has about 200 homes within a half mile radius. I certainly don't know the majority of them as the only time you might run into anyone is walking on a weekend. We have plenty of water, but probably not much in the way of food, fuel, or even ammo. If someone's kids are hungry, they're going to do what they have to in order to feed them.

    How you gonna repel if you're not prepared to repel? Yelling at them probably won't do the trick.

  • Prepared ? For what ? Out here in Pa i doubt there's few homes that are not heavily armed as matter of course.We mostly , certainly in this area all have private wells and superb hunting if one desires.
    We've always farmed , so what exactly would you have us do ? Id imagine this scenario is repeated widely throughout the US , so while the innner cities may experience problems i don't forsee an invasion of cityslickers anytime soon.Sure the rural areas crime might increase as the city thugs seek richer pickings but getting out of here is another whole new ball game.

    The S is perpetually hitting the fan.

    Every day there are people under water on their homes, or whose two-paychecks-from-homelessness has become just homeless. Every day there are healthy 50-year old fathers of 3 who have a heart attack or stroke and can't work. Every day the plant that built the town closes somewhere. Every day the insurance covers the fire damage, but not the 6 months of lost revenue and income.

    Or a nasty divorce makes the S hit the fan.

    Or the newest round of budget cuts makes the S hit the fan.

    And every day there are people who defiantly bluster that the dollar hasn't collapsed, when it has lost 50% of its value in their own lifetime (if the roof falls over 50% of your house, has it not collapsed?).

    And every day those same people proclaim gold and silver are foolish investments, when what could easily be bought for $275 10 years ago could now be sold not for 40% or 50% more, but rather 400% or 500%.

    And if any of those people had prepared for the inevitable S hitting the fan, by insuring their homes, businesses, and families correctly, by taking good physical care of themselves, by living within their means, and by simply allocating a small portion of their savings to precious metals, then they wouldn't even stop to think that "but for the grace of god go they". Because the S would never have hit the fan for them.

    SHTF in America= no cable

    Take cable away and there would be rioting in the streets. That's when you should be worried. Give the people cable and sing them a lullaby or let them buy from Home Shopping and there will be peace in the valley. Numb is good for the masses.

    Some may argue that the dollar has already collapsed albeit via a slow drip over the past 80 years or so losing 95% of it's purchasing power. No one notices when it's done over time. Drip, drip, drip

    It is what it is.

    I'm not a buyer of a TSHTF scenerio ever happening. I hope I'm right. I'm prepared for one though I THINK, but I doubt I will have thought of everything as there is no way to know for sure what shape or form SHTF will come in. My advise, enjoy life, kiss your kids, pet your wife and take the dog to a lot of dinners and movies and tell those that you cherish, " I love you"...........often. Hope for the best and prepare yourself and your family for rough times. There is no defense for harriers so why worry about it.

    Sad, but true.

    Personally I think TS(will)HTF once inflation really takes off and people start to see it for what it really is. This will be when an average salary no longer affords the comforts of a new big screen tv/furniture/car etc every few years.

    USDX = impossible to guage, because the baseline is established from currencies that are fiat too.

    Gold = rate of change = 40%/year, price indeterminate & negotiable

    OK, good, we have another aspect of a good definition for TSHTF (for everyone in the country, not just this sector or that subset of people):

    the "prices" for metals (and other goods, we presume) are changing very fast, unpredictably, and from place to place and time to time, as measured in the US Dollar and other fiat currencies.

    and/or

    the current "dollar" is extinct, retired, whatever, and a "new Unit" is instituted throughout the land.

    Yes, that would be very disconcerting. We'll see if or when such events transpire. We are assuming in this case, the internet still works and we'll be able to discuss it?
