Uncle Sam to mail out checks?
« on: March 16, 2020, 06:00:35 PM »
I just read that the government is considering send $1000 dollars to every adult in the country to boost the economy.

Here's the question. If the government returns $1000 to you. What would you buy? Here are a few ideas.

Food
Weapons
Radio
Gardening supplies
Medical Supplies
Computer
Electronics
Clothes
Livestock
Pay a bill

What are your ideas?

Ammo.   Review status of 3 Bs plus 2. 

Everyone knows the 3 Bs.  Don't forget the plus 2 of barter and bullion.

The only thing I can think of that I would like is more canned milk (I hate that powdered stuff) and waaaaaay more livestock feed (even tho I have almost 400lbs now, I have 39 ducks and 19 chickens, it goes fast.)

I'd save it to pay my future taxes....That $1,000 will cost me $3,000+ in the following few years.

Lead and one more shotgun...Chicken bone broth (yes, I can make it, but good to have for rice and bean, etc.
Thor ordered some garden soil, bird netting, chicken feed, etc. from Tractor Supply.  We are in there enough that he knows the manager.  Thor called him from the parking lot.  The manager came out, took his credit card, rang up our on line order and loaded it for us.  Thor took the card and wiped if off with the Clorox wipe he took with him and came home. We also bought a lot of T posts.  So, the guy stood away from the truck they stretched their arms out and that was that.  People are getting with the system. Only trip off the property in three weeks...I should have ridden also, just to look out the window!

Probably 1 box of .22lr shells if $1000.00 Zimbabwe dollars is enough because thats where all that is headed. 😉

On a serious note Diapers and wipes, a few sheets of 1/4” steel to make implements for the tractor 🚜 and Chicken feed 🐓 
Psalms 127:3-5 3Children are indeed a heritage from the LORD,
and the fruit of the womb is His reward.
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
so are children born in one’s youth.
5Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
He will not be put to shame
when he confronts the enemies at the gate.

I'm looking at a 1500 gallon water tank. Pay taxes on that cash, yuck. My adult kids won't get one because they are still dependents.
