Default How the US govt planned to feed nuclear survivors

Interesting Sunday reading. Anyone have the study done on CA inmates and the outcomes?

Dry interesting read indeed. Thanks for posting up the story.

It is clear the government of today only cares for the well being of illegals and the regular people are on their own. Sad conclusion to come up with.

In about 1982 I was given about a ton of those crackers. I fed them to the hogs and chickens, they loved them.

As I remember they were pretty bland.

This reminds me...

Thanks. I read the article when I got home and it was an interesting read. How would you plan for and provide food for 50 million people. What a challenge.

I still have a tin of the the crackers and another tin of the hard candy. My father's place of employment had CD supplies in the basement including dosemeters, detectors, blankets, toilets, food, water, cots, medical kits with morphine and hypos, and other stuff. They threw it all out in the 70s so I snagged two of the tins. The detectors were stored with the batteries installed which leaked and destroyed them. The medical supplies were looted for the drugs.
