What do all of these people have in common? It appears to me a total lack of discipline. I’m sure you all are quietly observing what is going on with these people. Those observations will come in handy Post-SHTF. Is there any concern regarding firearms, etc? It sounds like some of these may be the first ones on the FEMA bus to get their free food.
MB: The scheming wife sounds like the most dangerous. If she is like one that I know, she knows the welfare system inside and out, and would sell out anyone if it could get her want she wants. I’m always polite when interacting and deflect her questions about our personal business. I keep OPSEC very tight, but she always seems to know what everyone is doing and is always wanting to know what something costs.
Post-SHTF perhaps the solution is: “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.”
