Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #75 Starts HERE At 6:30pm Mountain Time!

April 28, 2022

The Q&A portion of the Wild Bunch Dispatch will be held on this page from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (Mountain Time) today.  Any questions you might have on the 75th issue (Today’s Economic Crisis Will Be Far Worse Than The Great Depression – Here’s Why) please post here and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.  Some ground rules:

1)  Please stick to the subject matter of the newsletter.

2)  This is not a debate forum.  If you have some concerns I’m happy to address them, but I can’t get into a long circular debate while other people have questions.

3)  If I do not respond to your question immediately, don’t freak out.  I’ll get to it, don’t worry.

4)  Try to keep to one or two questions each time you write a post.  Please refrain from essay-long multi-question posts.  It is much appreciated. 

I will begin discussion at exactly 6:30pm Mountain time.  Looking forward to your questions and thoughts on the Wild Bunch Issue #75.  If you missed out on this discussion you can still subscribe for the next issue and participate.  For more information on how to subscribe, visit the link HERE.

    There have been problems with the server since yesterday, so if you are trying to post a question or a comment and it doesn’t work, that is probably the reason why. I think I have solved the issue, but if problems persist then I will move the discussion to Sunday. Otherwise, be sure to participate at 6:30pm Mountain Time!

    Discussion on Issue #75 is now open.

    How much worse do you think the quality of materials will get before it is unsustainable? I know prices will continue to rise and quantity continue to decrease, but quality has me extremely worried. This year I have thrown out more food purchased from stores over quality concerns than I remember doing in the past decade.
    I am curious if you have noticed that too and how that might affect things going forward.

    • Black Cat April 28, 2022 at 6:43 pm

      I think based on all observable facts that when this finally hits it will definitely be the mother of all depressions.

      It is undeniable that it is underway already, all roads are leading us there

      I’m already seeing a reduction in quality in multiple products, and a reduction in amount vs. packaging (shrinkflation). The price increases in food are ridiculous now. I don’t know how anyone under the poverty line will be able to afford the cost hikes even with EBT or welfare support. I have also had food poisoning twice in the past month and still can’t identify the source. I can only guess it was something I bought “fresh” from the store that wasn’t so fresh. I think within 6 months quality will be completely in the gutter on most items. People will be looking for older and better made items on Ebay, and food will be hit and miss. Store what you can now and don’t expect much in terms of quality by the end of the year unless you are willing to pay a pretty penny.

      • Byron April 28, 2022 at 7:07 pm

        I cannot make this up: between typing my original comment and replying right now, I am going to have to toss MORE food. This is absolutely insane.

        God help everyone. I mean that in the most reverent sense. I’m going to say a prayer for everyone reading and commenting on this website tonight.

  • Black Cat April 28, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    I have definitely seen a drop in quality in many things recently including food. It’s like it’s sitting on containers for longer or something,🤔

    The uncanny “coincidences” in the food chain is outrageous!

      Yes, I will be covering the food shortage issue in my article being published tomorrow (it would have been published today but the site was suffering from server issues). Everything is leading to a clear inflationary crash and an obvious food shortage problem by the end of this year if current trends persist.

        Seriously, our harvest right has been running overtime.

          I’m going to be growing as much as possible this summer. No doubt.

    Do you think the crime rate is already high, or do you think it will go a lot higher and how soon?

      I think in the cities the crime rates are already high and going higher. I’m not seeing this as much in rural areas but I think it depends on the state. The cities will be unlivable for many people within a year in terms of constant crime, looting, carjackings, muggings and murders. This will happen in blue states first. It’s hard to say how the red states will react and if their measures will quell poverty induced crime. Rural areas should be okay until there is a breakdown of rule of law or a dollar collapse, then some of those people will inevitably try to wander outside the cities looking for easy targets.

    One key difference I’d like to note between the Great Depression and the looming collapse over our heads today is that preppers and prepping back then wasn’t regularly demonized or ridiculed by mainstream society or the establishment like it is today. Plus not as many people today have the marketable skillsets our great grandparents had. Though I do think the demonization of prepping has backfired significantly as the sheer number of preppers has exploded over recent years as even traditionally liberal and left-leaning folks are seeing the turds flying towards the fan and are planning accordingly.

      I agree. Prepping was basically normal life in the 1930s; today it’s treated as “weird” or “dangerous” behavior by the mainstream, but I can say with some authority that there has been a HUGE jump in prepping interest just in the past two years alone. The globalists little covid maneuver woke up a lot of people to the reality of supply chain collapse and now people are stocking up fast.

    Something I’ve been hearing on social media is a bunch of food processing plants across the country being destroyed. Think there’s anything to it?

      Brandon Smith April 28, 2022 at 7:24 pm

      I think it’s the size of the processing plant that I would look at. There are at least a couple that were around 5% of the US meat market, which is huge. The others? I’m not sure. There are a LOT of food processing plants in the US; thousands. But, if multiple large plants go down, then I would be very suspicious.

    • Black Cat April 28, 2022 at 7:32 pm

      I’ve seen it to. If it’s accurate then it sure looks like possible sabotage. I’ve seen it on Chris Martensons show and in an article on Global Research.

    I remember when I first started looking into all of these “conspiracy theories“ , wondering to myself are these people sharing this information telling me the truth? Closing in on 21 years now and almost all of (within the reasonable sphere of the rabbit hole) has/is coming true. It’s wild watching it unfold in real time.

    If you were going to make one crop your primary for your victory garden this year, what would it be?

      Potatoes. Biggest bang for the buck and they store for many months. In warm places I might say corn because the prices are going through the roof and it contains a lot of sugars and calories, but it also uses WAY MORE nutrients from the soil than potatoes or grains. It really depends on the climate, but I’ll be focusing on potatoes, carrots, onions, radishes and cucumbers this year, and less on the fun stuff like tomatoes and peppers (I will still plant some, just less than usual. I also have a lot of garlic this year for flavoring, and I planted raspberries last year which are coming in very strong this year. They produce a lot of fruit and require little effort.
