..Is to focus on the things you can control. This is a tough one because each person/family is different and has a host of things they consider things they can control. My point is this, Food, Shelter, Arms and Fuel will be to the top 4 things each of us is going to need. So put your needs in perspective and you'll be somewhat okay and be able to handle a massive collapse in the economy. Those of you who care more about those 2-3 flat screens you got, or that expensive ass Sea Ray boat/or Yacht even, or that high end collection of classic cars you got in storage, etc...basically a bunch of toys, YOU will have the hardest decisions to make in the coming months. Good luck to all in 2013. it's gonna be shitty ride.
