    Things are getting bad.

    Well you can finally see things are getting bad and people are concerned when Costco starts selling survival foods.

    I'd go down to Lake Fork and hunt Bald Eagles & field mice before I resorted to that.

    Things have been rough around here for the past year. Locally unemployment is running at 11%. The number of mental holds, domestic batteries and general disturbance calls are the highest that we've seen in ten years (according to the stats lady in records) and there are a whole lot of empty houses in all of our subdivisons.

    Amazingly departments in the area (to include mine) are still hiring. However I got nine years with my agency and I'm not going anywhere. I don't think I would want to be starting out at the bottom in this economy.

    The worse things get, the more LEOs will be needed. Stay safe out there!

    If people would be planning their food storage when times are good, we wouldn't have this problem.

    I wouldn't want to hunt Bald Eagles. Might go to jail.

    Yeah my agency is talking about laying off anywhere from 30 to 300, with 300 being the probable number. Guess that's what happens when your state would rather give free food stamps to the unemployed then pay there cops. Sucks guys, really sucks. I feel for those on the bottom of the seniority lists at all agencies.

    Why do I need to buy survival food. I'll just take it from liberals that think guns are evil. After I'm done loading up their food, I'm taking their toilet paper too.

    Meanwhile, fishing in Russia:

    Might as well, they won't need the toilet paper if you take all of their food.
