htf would you guard livestock?

you'll probably be unable to keep them fed and watered, much less prevent anyone from slipping up at night and snaring/shooting one or more of them, or using a bola to down one. You'll be lucky if they don't kill your entire herd, just out of spite, or do so to run you off.

Same thing with grain stores, gardens, fields. People are ignorant/lack containers to save much, so the food will all just spoil. Starving dog packs will run the livestock, too. You'll be unable to do anything about it. You can't abandon your people and stuff to go chasing after some looter (who will probably lie awaiting you in ambush) You'll have to move, he can be well camoed/hidden. You'll get noticed/shot first. You'll have dead animals, the meat of which you'll need to try to preserve, and the head and guts of which you'll have to bury, or the stink will draw dog packs and bugs.

Livestock, orchards, graneries/ gardens are just losing propositions, if shtf. They will draw enemies TO you, and be of no help when, not if, you get attacked. Plenty of people will kill or burn all of it, just out of spite or to drive you off. That's just the way they are, and you've encouraged the breeding of such people by making abortions hard to get, making dope expensive, etc. Nobody'd deal dope if it sold for what aspirin sells for, no turf wars, no funding of such people. The reason there's BIG money in dope is that it's illegal.

I can make a lb of speed for about $500, and sell it for 10k. I can steal the prercursor chemicals by the truckload and sell THEM for a fortune, without bothering to make the speed myself. The places that make them and deal in them aint THAT secure, that 2-3 well trained, well equipped men cant' load up a small truck with them, in the same time it takes to get a major score at a bank. And you'll get at least 10x as much money with the dope chemicals.

it's called the "law of unintended consequences". Your inability to see all the ill effects of what you plan can easily prove to be lethal.

Do you have two non-narcotized brain cells left to rub together? If you did, you'd realize how blindingly, blatantly stupid that statement is.

I'll break it down in small words for the weird, angry kid shouting from the back of the bus: your reply to my post is to tell me that my post is an example of why you don't read my posts. Yes, you are insane.

Sorry butthead. You've simply called me a liar one too many times lately, and I'm tired of sticking up for you with the grownups.

Fact is, you have about a dozen things you say. Some of them are rational and some are not, but there's only about a dozen or so. You just say them a thousand times a week.

He's so irrational at times I don't know if he's had too much medication or not enough. He's about due for prison again. This time he's invented a "wifey" to pretend to buy and practice with guns. Last he had a close "friend". : )
