Do you rely on Govt. to feed your family during an emergency ?
I've never been in such a situation, but if I were, I'm sure I'd need the govt.'s help. Most people will not want to simply stand by and wait for help from others, but if that's all they can do, it should be available.
If you're waiting for the Gov't to help you in an emergency, you'll be waiting a long time...as the people in Long Beach, Staten Island, Queens and the Rockaways are finding out as we speak.
No. In all of the hurricanes I've been in, no one around me has depended on the government for food. You never know where they are, what they are up to, or if the food you are getting is something you like. Always have a stash of food and supplies in a safe place before the hurricane hits, enough to last at least two weeks. Depending on someone else when it seems like the end of the world has hit is always a bad idea. You will never know when your next meal will be unless you provide it yourself.
Yes, sometimes even your stash runs away. That is usually the point when every store gets attacked by your neighbors and everything goes off the shelves. There are times when you have to attack the stores too. It can get messy and deadly when people think the end of the world is near.
not a chance. i can hunt, fish and trap where i live. i try not to rely on the government for anything other then day to day stuff.
55% of Americans rely on govt. to heIp when a disaster struck but do you think that govt. will be able to give food and water to more than 300 million people in America and from where they will get them ? It would be stupid to wait for government to help you. I think you should stock up nonperishable food items of some days and first aid kits in your homes.
Surely govt. is too preparing for any disaster but just don't sit back relying on govt. only. Do your bit of work also.

Do you think it is OK for people to steal food to feed their family?

Stealing to feed your family - is it right or wrong?
