Luckily we waste so much money on the military we can slash the fuck out of that for a long time before people will care. No need to cut social programs while the Pentagon bankrupts the country.

Not for a long time, if ever.

Even if the government hasn’t implemented austerity measures here in the US, most of our citizens have!

It’s a good idea to keep a supply of foodstuffs anyway, just in case. Mormons, I think, are supposed to keep a six-month supply of food to tide them over things like unemployment, natural disasters, and suddenly-homeless relatives.

Be sure to rotate the stock.

@talljasperman…And Tic-Tacs. I’m more of an Altoids fan.
