A Global Food Crisis is Coming


Aspiring Man of God
I always wonder and am amazed how John the Baptist ate locusts and wild honey for his food!

I love the sound that crickets make...couldnt eat them. In 2016 the locusts came out of the ground here...they are ugly! Dont know if I could eat one...even dipped in honey or chocolate!

The cicadas in the US that we call locusts are not actually locusts. Locusts are a type of swarming grasshopper. The US variety (actually a cicada) would not be kosher. The key was the hopping and segmented legs.

Lev. 11

20“All winged insects that go on all fours are detestable to you. 21Yet among the winged insects that go on all fours you may eat those that have jointed legs above their feet, with which to hop on the ground. 22Of them you may eat: the locust of any kind, the bald locust of any kind, the cricket of any kind, and the grasshopper of any kind. 23 But all other winged insects that have four feet are detestable to you.

Ok, so even if I was willing to eat bugs for meat, what about my cats? Will they harvest rats, mice, and various other small rodents to make catfood? I guess they could use cricket pizza as bait to catch the gigantic rats. Or bugs in cat food. I had a cat that would kill and eat the woods roaches that would wander in to die. We'd find um, leftovers.

Actually, my 8 yr old Tortie cat considers crickets fine dining...she specializes in crickets and lizards! :)

I wonder if reptiles are considered "meat" by the crazies?

I drove a diesel car for over a year. I paid $0.30 more per gallon than gas. Today that number is over a dollar a gallon.
Add to that the price of fertilizer which has zoomed and we definitely have a crisis looming.
I just may buy seed at Ace Hardware and grow my own veggies.
