blockbuster-mart 3


BLOCKBUSTER-MART 3
For anyone who finds the end of Blockbuster a joy to behold I say unto thee, verily, dumbass, the Digital Age is all flash and false hope that will disappoint and endanger. It is convenient. So is McDonald's. And about as healthy. What did we lose when the video stores closed? Physical copies. Personal recommendations. And a “special event” that was planned, executed and enjoyed ( not that Blockbuster was small or personal enough-I speak of the retail segment in general ). It is the same with the death of book stores.
*
Web page surfing takes away the experience we enjoyed, either as the only place in the mall I could go to as the women folk chattered and clucked among the clothing, or the weekly treat of spoiling yourself with special entertainment the TV could not match. Going to Amazon or Netflix and scrolling through thousands of offerings? It isn't the same ( and not just because Hollywood is cranking out extra special levels of crap. Even the latest Mel Gibson, “The Madman And The Professor”, better than months of mediocre pap, simply wasn't a must re-watch masterpiece it could have been ten or more years ago ).
*
Like the actual lives of most Americans it is all quantity and near zero quality. Did the Romans eat faster and faster, puking more and more in between courses, in a vain attempt to enjoy more luxury as the city decayed around them? Did the Nazi's in the bunkers stay drunk as the Soviets got closer, hoping their last days of excess were better than reality? The death of retail video is also the death of Hollywood ( the death of The Walking Dead-the last season, once again, degenerating into episodes to endure rather than enjoy-might portend the end of the smaller Hollywood brethren surviving out of the state of California ).
*
The death of analog. Hollywood went to crap, retail went to crap, books went to crap, our political system went to crap, all about the same time after 2008. The death of the old system ( malls in business for fifty years going to crap wasn't because Amazon-it was the death of the anchor stores which is the beginning of the death of the Big Box Stores ). Nobody is even beginning to believe grocery stores are going to fail. But if they are attached to a failing over indebted over stretched version of K-Mart? Sure.
*
When Wally takes a big puke, how do Po Boys survive? I don't actually believe things will be that much worse for you. The simple fact is, almost every single thing in half the store is complete and utter low quality garbage. I don't say this as a snob. In certain things, low cost products are fine. If I don't habitually saw wood, how high of quality of a saw do I need? I hear you say, buy once, cry once. And I don't disagree. What I do ascertain, however, is that we are no longer in a position to treat EVERY single product like that. On a reduced budget, you must sometimes trade longevity for budgetary considerations.
*
Fact-unemployment is high. Fact-it will get much higher. Fact-you can't always get what you want. In a lot of cases, middlin quality is the best you can hope for. Almost nothing on the merchandise side of Wal-Mart is of middlin quality. That whole half of the store is a black hole for money. In almost every case, a little shopping around buys you three times the life for only twice the money. You SAVE money buying outside Wal-Mart. How about food? That is much tougher. Not AS tough as it used to be however.
*
Long ago Wally switched from generics to brand name. I grant you, their brand names are cheapest. But who the Hell is such a luxury dripping Yuppie Scum they can afford brand names? Not I. You can, usually, get cheaper generics in the Yuppie Grocery stores than you can buy brand name at Wally. Yes, in a few instances brand name is better. Libbey's corn was five times better tasting than any other brand name and ten times better than generic. In some generics it tasted like I was eating deer corn.
*
That is rare, at least to me, without any refined taste. One great thing about decades of company consolidation is that your generic item is made by the same idiots making brand name items. Usually. So you buy generic. Whoopie Pickles. You abused little First Worlder. Now, for those already eating generic from Wal-Mart, most times you can survive buying on Yuppie Grocery weekly specials. The Loss Leaders ( because of those, a lot of times you are paying less than anywhere else. This is when Wally's “always low price” bites them in the ass, as they never have specials ).
*
You will have to start stocking up on all food items, so that you can go six months without visiting a grocery store ( start at one month, work your way up ). This means you never buy EXCEPT on the sales. Plenty of folks sell used freezers because they suck too much energy or they look ugly. Is rotation a PITA? Of course. I'm sorry, were you under the impression that saving money was easy? Haahahaha! You are so cute when you discover reality for the first time.
*
The stuff you need to buy daily or weekly? Well, you'll have to shop around. That means for a lot of us, a bicycle. Which you need anyway. You were saving money JUST driving to Wally. Now you'll need to save money by pedaling around and comparison shopping, buying the cheapest. Your days of assuming Wally is the cheapest are over. I'm not going to pull out the stale and overused “gardening”. This article is on substituting where you buy your food. And everyone is aware of farmers markets and such.
*
Some items you can create. This will be a high up front cost. It will take two years for my newest grain grinder to pay for itself, but less if I shopped for the flour at Krogers instead of Wally. It frees me from Wally's low price, by its eventual much lower price. Dehydrators and pressure canners can help for buying produce on sale, if you are really a bunny. Or even meat, if you worry about the grid going down. The empty jars are cheaper at Wally, unless you bulk buy them at the end of the season from ranch/farm supply stores.
*
Yes, you'll have to stock inventory to beat the cost of Wally. Is that such a bad thing? Hell, it is a guarantee that Wally is ALWAYS out of something you need anyway. You had to stock up from Wal-Mart. There is no difference if Wally closes down! We can break this unnatural dependence on a company that hates us and has been screwing us for a decade. It won't be simple, a little less easy, up front costs. But you do it now while you can still cheat at Wally, or be forced to do it quickly and not as cheaply when they bankrupt. Good luck!

blockbuster-mart 2


BLOCKBUSTER-MART 2
No one liked Blockbuster. They moved in with their corporate access to billions from the banks and bought videos by the pallet full, undercutting and putting Mom & Pop out of business. The small guys had to buy a $20 video where Blockbuster got them for pennies ( and shared the rent with the studio ). Blockbuster had HUGE overhead, and made every moronic decision possible, but they just stayed in business like Sears did, borrowing money until they couldn't. You kill a small business industry, then go bankrupt yourself, leaving a community with little or no choices after that.
*
To be clear, the Big Box Store Business wasn't a terrible idea. It was perfected during a time oil was gushing and cheap, and computers and their networks were making globalized logistics affordable. It was China, Computers, Debt and Petroleum all offering heretofore unrealized savings. It really was a great deal for consumers. After twenty years of stagnant wages, consumers needed that break. And they went Full Retard becoming Yuppie Scum Junior Rangers ( copying the lifestyle they viewed with envy the decade prior ).
*
The next decade, the banks blew one last bubble with real estate and consumers used their homes as an ATM to continue shopping at Big Boxes. It was good times ( recall the 1.8 cent rimfire round at Wally-back when they weren't Misfire Kings )! And then global Peak Oil hit. No, we didn't run out of oil-just the high net energy conventional oil. The economy didn't like that one bit, and popped the bubble. The Big Box Stores which had wiped out Main Street struggled to survive. Blockbuster was an early casualty.
*
Not JUST because Netflix. Blockbuster followed the “stick a pencil up your ass and squat over a yellow tablet” method of budgeting and accounting. They only had themselves to blame. Netflix and Redbox just took advantage of them. And all they did, really, was just remove rent from their costs ( like Amazon is doing, competing with Wal-Mart ). Because even though we had a real estate bubble bust, the banks made sure rents stayed oh so very high. Commercial real estate went through the shoddy poor quality shingle roof. That was it for video stores, already suffering from Blockbuster, Netflix rentals and Wal-Mart DVD sales.
*
Wal-Mart is suffering, already, from 2008, from expansion cost. When you expand, there must be an increase in customers. Even if your debt interest rates are lowering, even if all your costs are lower, you still need customers to enter and shop in that million dollar building with millions in inventory. When that doesn't happen, stores start into the death spiral of short term saving that kill future business. Look at Sears, dropping almost everything one item at a time to focus on higher profit clothing. They lost all the customers that bought everything BUT women's clothes.
*
So when everyone else starts focusing on clothing, like JC Penney, and Ross and whoever, everyone steals each others customers. When I went to my first Family Dollar, they were almost ALL clothing. They seriously pulled back from that, and now are almost a mini Wal-Mart, but with more inventory with less rent ( and usually better prices ). The Dollar Tree corporation saw something good in them when they bought the company. Alas, they expanded as Wal-Mart was declining severely, and that SHOULD have been a good bet.
*
But it backfired on them, as Wally temporarily shook itself out of its death spiral, and Family was stuck with the expansion costs. In a climate of severe customer contracting purchasing power ( remember that 40% real unemployment rate? ). Now you walk into a store and the too few employees cannot keep up with the mess and stocking the shelves. Prices are creeping up and quality is reaching towards Wal-Mart lows. Expansion Costs Plus Reduced Customer Spending kills the Big Box Stores.
*
Wal-Mart only gave itself a temporary reprieve from its decline ( I don't know at what cost ). Then, because its corporate elite are all inbred Arkansas banjo players, it decided the decline wasn't fast enough and they said, if effect, we hate our poor rural customers who made us rich, and we STILL want to be just like Target ( like Texas envy among Oklahoman's, Wal-Mart has always had a hankering to be Target. I have no idea why ) and so we want all the hip urban Yuppie customers and so we will Virtue Signal that we hate guns and the Bill Of Rights. Stupid Constitutionalists!
*
Well, there is only one small little problem with that. The poor is growing as a class, and Yuppies are in decline. No matter, says the Arkansas Mafia, the Yuppies are getting WAY more money. As the poor are being impoverished, the Yuppies pull in a bigger share of the economy. Even at a rate of shrink, the future bet is on Yuppies-soon, the working poor will just be poor and have no money, but Yuppies will. Screw Gun Owners! And you know what? Wal-Mart isn't wrong, from a pure economic standpoint.
*
The problem is, every body else has the same idea! Yuppies will rescue us! It is the rush to only sell women's fashion, all over again. Wal-Mart is the new Sears. Not because of Amazon. Amazon loses money on everything tangible it sells, if nothing else on the reduced shipping. It profits handsomely off of its intelligence industry services, spying for the security state. That allows it to sell at a loss, which Wall Street loves, and Bezos can keep cashing in his stock for tens of billions a shot. When the owner is selling his stock, what exactly is that telling you? Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if he got divorced solely to trick folks into thinking he had to sell stock for the divorce cost.
*
Ah, no. He is cashing out because he doesn't have a viable business. He might not have retail cost, but he sure as crap has inventory cost. The same cost Wal-Mart is desperately trying to reduce. No, the only way Amazon stays in business is to lose money. Wal-Mart only has itself to fear and to blame. They over expanded and over borrowed and they did enough stupid crap to increase short term profits to destroy themselves long term-Dead Zombie Walking.
*
Who offers a pick-up at the curb service when your web site sucks, bogging down and with a search engine designed by a retarded five year old using crayons, eliminating impulse sales in the store and idling your employees inside? And that is just the latest brain fart. To go along with telling a good portion of its White Male customers it hates them because they aren't Progressive. Wal-Mart is doomed. With or without our help. And so, you are now at the point where the one budgetary item you could trim is going to suddenly increase drastically in the near future, with little warning ( except from here-you are welcome ).
*
It isn't exactly a brain fart, what you need to do. It is really just what we already had been doing, before Wal-Mart. Buying in bulk elsewhere, buying through the mail, shopping at more than one place and only cherry picking the weekly sales at the Yuppie grocery stores. Continued tomorrow.

blockbuster-mart


BLOCKBUSTER-MART
What if Wal-Mart were to go the way of Blockbuster Video? I got the idea for this when a minion responded to my battle cry of boycotting Wal-Mart by reminding me he had little choice in the matter, as they were the only cheap source of groceries. Oops! I kind of dropped the ball on that consideration. Which just goes to show you that I don't live in a small enough town. But that is a discussion for another day. It is important to keep in mind that for many of us, holding off poverty is a real consideration.
*
May Baby Jesus forgive me, I almost started sounding like Rawles or-ahem-some of my minions. Wealth and poverty is NOT always just a easy Think Yourself And Grow Rich Tony Robbinson Oo-Rah BS plan. Could I have joined the middle class early in life? Sure. If I stayed at a job I hated and wasn't naturally suited in temperament for. The one job I had that was closest in pay and presented achievable advancement in, for a middle class life, yeah, that was the one the Baby Mamma chose the time to divorce me. I wouldn't have made it, but I could have tried for it.
*
The job I also could have died in chasing the Big Bucks ( midwest and South C-store chain “QT”. The stores were usually in Fully Diverse neighborhoods and one night the lone manager on duty was beat to death with bats in the walk-in cooler by Disadvantaged Youths. A few of us started carrying concealed on duty-but that was the beginning of the end for me. No job is worth that kind of risk. But, if I had thought differently, if money was the only thing I cared about, that job would have been a keeper ).
*
And before anyone says “self-employment”, my only experience was LEO and retail management. I was barely into my writing career and still sucked monkey balls-at least compared to today. You could see my budding greatness, but the edges were rather rough. The last thought I would have had was that I was ready for self-employment. I could have stayed in the military, or been hired by the Los Angeles sheriff's department, but I would have stayed an alcoholic to cope with the stress. No, folks, sometimes earning big bucks simply isn't worth it.
*
College? No way was I subjecting myself to four more years of idiot instructors teaching me to be a useless moron. Hell, the military looked GOOD in comparison to college. It still does, and that is not saying a lot. Choosing to make good money is exactly that-a choice. Some of us choose sanity, instead. And when we make that choice, certain repercussions are felt. Such as a narrowing series of options. Like shopping at Yuppie Marts. Now, don't get me wrong. I firmly believe making lots of money is just as constricting and limiting as living on the lower socioeconomic rungs.
*
Once you lock into a trophy wife and McMansion and find the area of high cost of living your job is in, you are on a high speed treadmill that is hard to exit. You actually end up with no to worse choices in life. The brother in law is making five times minimum wage, way above the national average, and is a sad sack prior to every payday. He is trapped and age is whittling away at his options to stay in his field. I'm making what? $1.25 an hour? Semi-retired and few worries beyond what we all face on a macro scale of politics and the economy.
*
Money simply isn't as freeing as it used to be, after the banker scum took over the whole economy in 2008. Why do you think we are still in Afghanistan? Bankers gotta bank, and the Federal Government can continue spending, unlike the credit card users or college debt holders. The bankers hijacked the US military, the education system, the real estate market, and etcetera. You can make serious money and someone is there holding you hostage for their cut. By this point, NOT having money can be, under certain circumstances, liberating. But Jim! What about if you had to go to the hospital, to save your life?
*
What about it? If you have money or insurance, the medical industry WILL without any hesitation, quickly drain you of all your wealth. All those tests you simply must have, to cover the doctors ass with his malpractice insurance so ruinous many professionals leave the industry, quickly escalate any visit past a broken arm into a cost rivaling an expensive house ( the arm cost as much as a new cheap Asian car, in some cases ). You are paying for the many parasites in that system.
*
Congratulations. You get to live a bit longer. In complete debt to the medicals. You are now an indentured servant. How is that quality of life, now? And your illness, or complications from inept treatment, means you didn't really recover. Not properly. But you must still labor away to pay your “saviors”. I think I'll just roll the dice and stay away from those hacks. I'll choose quality of life now over quantity later. And a large part of that quality is not trying to make lots of money. Which means I can't go to Yuppie-Mart to go shopping for my groceries.
*
And that food is the same slop full of hormones and antibiotics and GMO's and Fuki radiation, but in better packages, with buzzwords like “organic”, sold in a nicer store, for four times the cost as what Wal-Mart sells it for. I'm not defending Wally. They push the envelop on their cost savings all the time and I don't like when people do that to something that might kill me, like food ( or, later in time, during Spicy Times, ammunition ). But when you are lower income, Wally is the only game in town eating affordably.
*
Some towns have “competition” that is all the same Yuppie Food Pellets at high prices, and hence no competition at all. The prices vary from “anal sodomy” to “sell us your first born”. I got lucky. My town has a Kroger ( thanks, LDS dudes, for running a good enough business with Smith's groceries that Kroger wanted to buy them up. I do miss the bulk bucket isle, though ). Many small towns do not. You get jacked by Safeway or Albertson's or one of their clones. Your only choice is to drive a ways to Wal-Mart.
*
You might be in the minority and choose quasi-poverty, genteel poverty, like I did. You might have made good money and the business closed down and bankrupted your community. You might be stuck underwater in a house, with high property taxes and laws against jingle mail ( staying liable for the difference in the mortgage and what the house sells for ). You might have been a good little middle class worker your whole life and circumstances screwed you. Wal-Mart destroyed the shopping competition, and your only choice is to shop there. But what happens when Wal-Mart goes out of business, like Blockbuster Video did, wiping out an entire industry? In this case, the affordable groceries industry.
*
Continued tomorrow.

ohtay fascism 3


OHTAY FASCISM 3
Both socialism and fascism are Better Than Nothing in governing a system in resource decline. We were fascist the first fifty years ( since the Republic took its final wounding blow and installed a Rothschild Bank ) and have been socialist the last fifty. Since we are obviously in energy decline, entering the last economic contraction before the end of colonial empire, we WILL become one of those two systems ( IF and only if we do not implode into total collapse first ) in the near future. That is the coming civil war. Not freedom versus slavery.
*
We have been wage then debt slaves for a very long time. No, it will be fascism versus socialism. Does it make a difference? Well, which system of repression did you prefer? The last of the fascist system died, probably in the 1980's, with Reagan. Socialism reigned supreme after that ( to be clear, I think the fascist system was mortally wounded in Dallas in 1963. Vestiges lived on through Reagan, but it was a sick shuffling zombie by then. Socialism had been gaining ground since the early Sixties-it just wasn't a fast transition ). I'd much rather live under a stern fundamentalist racist militant regeme, myself.
*
Make no mistake. This isn't about individual freedom. It is about the freedom to live under one type of big government. So the question is, do you want to live under a tyranny of Hippies, or one of paramilitary conservatives? You are a slave under both systems. But in one you live under communism and the other fascism. I don't like the last fifty years, so I'll pick the fascists. Under one, you are helpless and unarmed. In the other you are armed, but must constantly live under threat of dying in a war.
*
Again, I'd rather die fighting for the emperor than dying in an alley stomped to death by Diversity armies, without anything to defend myself with. Individual freedom means nothing in either system. In one, only the secret police are armed. In the other, the secret police still control the soldiers. At least in one I'll have the option of armed revolt if things get too bad. So, you won't be fighting to stay armed and free. You'll be fighting to keep YOUR tyrants in power. At least they are yours instead of theirs.
*
The current problem we face is that the soft and gooey socialists have recently turned into violent and sociopath communists. Communists hate guns and they hate local power. Everything must be centralized. Under fascism, local power is more easily reverted to as resources contract. Fascism is really just feudalism on a national scale, in a tribal organization. Communism is ONLY about centralized power and control. It has zero regard for the individual. Fascism is more egalitarian, as long as it is on a war footing. Individuals gain no extra power, but they are treated more equal as fighters.
*
It is just more natural, closely following tribal structure, scaled up. Communism is crafted more along the lines of industrialism, where ever more centralization is desirable. So, obviously, in a resource contraction fascism is more prone to survive and thrive. But communism is the tool the globalists have used to gain and control power. The fascists still face the threat of defeat, no matter how much more suited they are to future conditions. I think it would behoove us to look into our coming conflict with the view we need to defeat communists.
*
Not “restore the constitution” or the like. Not for State Sovereignty. Not for Libertarian Utopias. Simply, to defeat communists. To do that, you are probably going to need to become a fascist. It won't be called that. It will be Populism or Nationalism. But as long as we organize on a national level, it will be fascism in practice if not name. Anything calling for the retention of the current system, of the Federal Reserve Bank, will be in actual fact communists. But wait! I just said the banks pushed fascism to gain ground from 1913 to 1963. Why would the bank now support communism?
*
Well, it didn't. It was socialists. The elements in the socialist system hijacked that and turned communist. So far, the Bank has kept them under control. Since the communists started gaining power under the Politically Correct movement, the socialism aspects of the system have been falling. Since then, the central bank, which now controls near everything, hasn't cared and probably thought it was a great idea ( maximum Divide And Conquer ). They thought they had the tiger by the tail, because, they did. But commies gotta commie and one day soon, as the economy implodes, the communists will resist any organization that slows its acquisition of power and uber control over the culture.
*
Commies Gotta Commie. That explains every puzzling factor over at the PC Party that confused you. Why did the PC'ers turn on the biggest faction of the organization, the White Females? Commies gotta be communists. The White Bitches got too much power and money, and like Hillary, started acting like the old White fascist party. Not communist at all! Not diverse! The White Females were there in the first place for one reason, and that was to block defensive moves by the old power White Males.
*
The bankers ARE profiting off this conflict, you betcha. For now. But remember, central banks are a capitalist organization. They exist to colonize and extract wealth. As the wealth implodes, so does the purpose and the power of the central bank. It will lose control of the communists ( who crushed the moderate socialists, remember ). When that happens, the communists are too stupid, blinded by ideology, to realize the centralized system they want to control is failing. That means they fight to the death, hard. Those of us NOT communists, are going to have to organize under the only other available resource scarce political organization left, fascism.
*
The communists control most vital systems. Schooling, the military, all urban zones local government. Their people are in most vital positions administratively. Power companies, Internet companies. They are national. Which means you need a nation power to fight against them. Not for forth generation warfare, but for coherent organization. If everyone and his brother form a group against the commies, they will be picked off individually. So it might be preferable joining the fascists ( under another moniker, as the elites demonized the term ), at least long enough to kill all the communists.
*
Yes, the future is decentralization. You just can't rush into it too soon, as you'll become a casualty. All I'm saying is fascism might be okay as an alternative, on our way towards decentralization. At least it retains the militant male culture we wish to see carry through to the apocalypse. And, really, what isn't to like, killing a commie for mommy?

ohtay fascism 2-article 2 of 2 today


OHTAY FASCISM 2 ( second of two articles today )
Yesterday I pointed out that capitalism is how you manage excess resource wealth, and when you didn't have colonial treasure, you had to revert to either socialism or fascism to cope with social unrest in a declining resource environment. People get so hung up on viewing government as a religion, an ideology they must preach and protect at all costs, they ignore reality. The Chinese went from ideology which starved millions to a reality based system ( quasi-free market under totalitarian rule-or, as I recently read elsewhere, Stalinist 2.0 ) which propelled their economy past that of the US, based on a cost of living adjusted math.
*
In their quest to prove to themselves that only capitalism is good and just and works perfectly, most folks gladly surrendered to the globalists ( not as in, “One World Government”, but as in “we export your job to another Rothschild's Colony” ). How has that worked out for us? Yes, Orange Man finally got around to seriously building the wall. His hotels are now staffed by LEGAL immigrants, as Google and Facebook employ half as expensive ( dot not feather ) Indians to program its censorship software.
*
We were better when NOT under globalism disguised as capitalism. We were better off when the government had more say in our private lives ( this is a minefield of a statement-but, in short, I mean it regulated and enforced what was culturally acceptable to everyone but progressives ). We saw a steady vig payment to the bankers, but it wasn't crippling like it is now. And Big Business was forced, by government, to share in profits. It was called Unionism and technically it is communism, but you see what happens without it.
*
It was more Populism than Robber Baronism or Capitalism. And with its strong military flavor colonizing the globe, it really was pretty close ( except the central bank OUT of the government control ) to fascism. Which, again, let me remind you, is JUST private business having a social responsibility to national strategy, enforced by the government ( why do you think there is so much push back on “nationalism” right now? It is because the globalists fear losing control back to national governments ). We had the excess wealth PRIOR to colonizing that it wasn't the hard slog other countries had establishing their empires. We had resources to waste.
*
Note I'm not claiming that our form of government was necessarily that which the elite wished for. For Unions to take hold ( and even for socialist type safety nets to be established-and no, I give ZERO credit to FDR for that since he FIRST stole all the gold and devalued its replacement 40%, waiting around for folks to starve in poverty, THEN decided to throw a bone to the masses ) there had be be plenty of social unrest ( back when military arms owners weren't scared to shoot at government agents ).
*
The folks on the Right claim that FDR was a coup by communists, and point out how enamored the elite were by Uncle Joe's success during the Depression. I contend that FDR was a puppet to the bankers, as demonstrated by his gold confiscation DAYS after being sworn in to defend the Constitution, and bankers only want communism in other countries, by their puppets. The Great Depression was engineered. It wasn't an accident a commie needed to save us from. And bankers prefer fascism, as it not only keeps them in power, it channels military money their way. In our case, having the central bank, it was a way to hugely bloat the national debt, going quasi-military dictatorship fascist.
*
Culture must be conducive to its form of government. Communists easy won over peasants just off the yoke of serfdom in Russia ( and still starving as peasants in China ), because it WAS an actual improvement. Russia didn't have the culture for city living and an agrarian merchant based economy ( although China did ), and strong government control was viewed in a positive light ( that is what freed them them the Asian horseman hordes ).
*
Americans are, really, if you rub away the patriotic coverings a bit, selfish and individualistic. We are used to rolling about in filthy excess ( which was both a result of stealing whatever they wanted [ didn't we take by force private charters granted by the Crown? ] and the multitudes adjusting to life after grinding poverty as indentured servants or slaves ) and we don't like sharing that with Johnny Come Lately's. Don't forget, the backlash against pasty white folks ( Germans, Irish, even the French already here ) was just as fierce as that against Mostly White folks ( Jews, Slavs, Italians ) and currently against Barely White folks ( Latinos ).
*
We aren't racist as much as we are just selfish pricks who had a nice tribe with a nice treasure and we didn't want to share. It was mostly economic. Our turning towards fascism had elements of racism, to be sure. Hitler learned from us. We were sterilizing undesirables long before he came to power. Immigration pretty much ceased with the founding of the Federal Reserve bank. One wonders if this was put into effect to appease the citizens already here ( instead of Extra going to fuzzy foreigners brought in to suppress wages, Less Extra went to the bankers. A win for both parties ).
*
Don't imagine for a moment that Money hasn't been the main battle for a very long time in this country. Since way before our official founding. As discussed previously about our greed to stockpile resources before their declining to emergency levels, Americans have just followed human nature fighting over wealth, no matter how much or how little was there. The Germans, surrounded by enemies, just wanted more land. Americans, with so much land it cost us to keep it, we focused on the more intangible luxury and money. Both cultures were identical in following our programming, however.
*
Why were Germans and Americans comfortable with fascism rather than socialism ( such as the French or Chinese embraced )? Culture, as well as the economic factors. We weren't ruined by civilization, and we were more tribal and militaristic. I think socialism is more to the liking of those less individualistic, more comfortable with lacking the responsibility of the individual. More Of The Herd, as it were. Both systems feature Big Government. Fascism is more egalitarian in the tribal sense, in that every warrior is roughly equal.
*
The socialists have mass conscripted armies, also, but they are NOT warrior-like in culture. Their armies are mere cannon fodder, by temperament ( this applies to the Soviets, in general. The American leaders tried to fight in this manner, and did for a century, but the soldiers were more individualist and martial. Only after the military leadership started supporting the death of the old fascist system did the troops rebel against the practice of being cannon fodder ).
*
Why were we even Fascist if that system is utilized by already poor countries? I think that WAS the bankers ploy to forestall social unrest as they subverted and took over the system. It turned us into a coherent tribe and turned up the flame under colonialism and militarism, distracting us from the process.
Tomorrow, the war between the socialists and fascists in this country coming soon.

GUEST ARTICLE ( first of two articles today )

In Defense of Growing Things

James is opposed to agriculture in general, gardening in particular and if any permaculturists show up he'll use a precious .303 round on them ( and not even a brass cased round, only a round from the lesser steel cased stockpile).

From a macro, long term view of various civilizational collapses, agriculture usually expands population beyond carrying capacity, depletes soils, literally "salts the earth" from irrigation, causes a degeneration in physique over successive generations compared to hunter gatherers, etc., etc.

Hell, I get it. Instead of digging around in the dirt, I'd rather hunt down a buffalo or mastadon using a sweet ass obsidian Clovis-15 assault spear, drag it back to camp and knock mocassins with a tribe hottie or two.

But that ship has sailed. The megafauna aren't coming back, and billions of ravaging humans have had their way with Mother Earth for quite a while. It must take quite a number of square miles now to support a 20 person hunter gatherer tribe. 

For most of us, growing something is necessary for ( or would benefit) our future food plans. Yes, stockpile as much as possible while still living in the cheap oil cornucopia. But it is valuable  being able to supplement that stockpile with fresh food grown in soil built using what most Americans set on their curb to be trucked away. Some soil building ideas: road kill, biochar soaked in manure or compost teas, mulching with pine needles or forest duff, bags of coffee grounds Starbucks gives away, have nearby family or neighbors save food waste in 5 gallon buckets you supply, make some bokashi bran for them to add to it for a fermented, enhanced end product, collect bags of leaves set out curbside and compost using saved urine if lacking a nitrogen source. The point is to channel waste already existing around you into building a fertile patch of ground where you can grow nutritious food for close to free.

Growing a percentage of daily food now builds skill and long term health. Not needing prescription drugs after eating multiple servings of leafy greens daily (that only traveled 10 yards to your plate, grew in great soil, and don't have residue of Round Up or  fecal coliform) makes a garden seem like a genius idea. The physical exercise and mental benefit of garden work help also. 

Check out David Kennedy's book 21st Century Greens. Good read critiquing the modern food system. It also describes nutritional benefits of many leaf crops. For example, sweet potato leaves are the richest known source of lutein, the antioxidant that protects our eyes and skin from UV radiation damage. Think staving off macular degeneration and skin cancers. Plenty of ideas for both perennial crops and annuals for a range of climates.

Another good book with ideas for perrinnial crops is Eric Toensmeier's Perrinnial Vegetables.

Perrinneals are valuable because you plant it once and they continue to grow and produce food for many years unlike annuals. Traditional annual garden crops usually have a narrow time window for planting and harvesting. If you're busy doing other essential things during these times, that years crop will not happen. Also many perrinneals, when compared to common annuals such as corn or tomatoes, may not be as readily identified as food by human pests and mooches.

Gardening is not just for low calorie vitamin production, calories can be produced:
- I convert leaf crops (and weeds) into high quality protein, fats and calories by feeding to chickens and rabbits. 
- In my area, root crops such as sweet potatoes and cassava can be grown year round.
- Beans such as yard long beans and winged beans grow throughout the long, very hot monsoon summers. Traditional bean varieties grow better in the winter.
- As far as grain, I have grown small patches of rice, sorghum, and buckwheat ( not a true grain). These trials make me wholeheartedly agree with James: currently grain is a complete bargain. Growing, harvesting, winnowing and cleaning your own grain by hand is lots of work for not much return. So purchased wheat, even ready packed in buckets, is way worth it. Stack it deep.

Thanks for reading.

ohtay fascism


OHTAY FASCISM
Good gravy! Full Retard Leftism seems to know no bounds in ideological stupidity. Not because the right is much better ( they are water carriers for the globalists ). Both suffer from Growth Uber Alles delusions. No, they are merely stupid because they never met a biological fact they couldn't ignore. A minion recommended some new Druid Dude type site, and the guy is talking about Gore Warming and Food Failure, and follows that up with a plea for the Leftards to protect immigrants. How in the holy hell can you be this friggin stupid without pills or a frontal lobotomy?
*
Lefties need to join to stop the evil Nazis from being evil or a Nazi, and virtue signal for more immigration? Now, to be honest, I skimmed over this article, got pissed and left, deleting the bookmark. I should have read it again to verify all this. So it is probably a good thing I don't recall the name in case I'm way off. But my blood pressure had already spiked from Wal-Mart's retarded form letter, then having gone over to Doomstead Diner I unfortunately read “Surly” who hates the Second Amendment because its sole use was to arm the slave hunters ( I'm not going back to Doomstead. It jumped the shark. I know the guy is one botched prescription away from a dirt nap, but he seems to be paying zero attention to things ).
*
"Surly” has always pissed me off with his way far left bullcrap, and I usually just avoided his nonsense, but there has been little enough else to read over there and I screwed up and subjected myself to him. Also, over at the above unattributed article, our own Green Mountain Dude was cheerleading for the author. I can take a huge dose of Hippie crap from C5, because he has so much common sense on survivalism I can grant him extra “contention points”. But now I do get more of where he comes from in philosophy. With him, I can agree to disagree.
*
I get that Marxists hate guns. Marxists gotta Marxist. They are blinded by ideology, and hence cannot learn simple English like, “shall not be infringed”. CEO's of corporations with a minimum of four years college have the same language incomprehension. After all, “a bill of rights” must REALLY actually mean “a bill of permissions revoked at will” if you want to turn the globe into a gentle glittery unicorn clown world. Given these idiots perception of reality, it is a good thing the only other choice politically isn't just capitalism.
*
Capitalism was a mirage from the very beginning. It NEVER meant “free market”. It meant “government protected monopolies”. It was mercantilism, more than an Adam Smith utopia of competition. You might MEAN capitalism as it is taught in its propaganda, but the reality on the ground is a capitalist CLASS controlling all the others. It is as free market as a middle age guild system. Now, don't take that to mean I'm completely opposed to capitalism. Its most successful form, that the British empire ran, proved to work rather well.
*
If you were an empire. In practice, a central bank funded the government and expanded the money supply for growth ( growth is needed to pay loan interest ). The “free market” meant some competition gave a better feedback loop that was not AS corrupt. It meant that your blue blood family owning a mill had to keep down the waste to get the government contract and protection. You had incentive against ruining a good thing. Clearly, this is more efficient than government agencies allocating resources. But both systems protected the elite.
*
The French system, despite ( or because of? ) a revolution, was more socialist. It wiped out the nobility and church corruption, which freed up that waste, and it its place the inefficient government still got more resources into the hands of the common people. In their case, socialism was a win. But as the British showed, a government protected private bank lasts longer and funds empire better than an all public system. That is the only reason the Brits won the colonial system game, and the American elite knew this quite well.
*
The price for longevity and a bigger colonial prize however, is LESS protection for the masses. Yes, I'm painting with a broad brush here. But in general there was more trickle down benefits for the lower classes. But NOT because it was mercantilism verses socialism. It was because that model was better at gaining, controlling and holding colonies for extra loot. Socialism was better at distributing resources, for less inequality, but it was also the failed system forced to do that.
*
Follow my reasoning here. Capitalism, which if not more correctly called mercantilism should be called Private Bank Monopolist-ism, was the supreme colonial strategy. Those systems that lost in that conflict usually resorted to socialism. For the simple fact it was the path to avoid revolution with less wealth. Capitalism is how you allocate extra wealth, socialism is how you allocate less. Capitalism must practice classism as a control mechanism, where socialism must practice egalitarianism as a social order mechanism.
*
Now, as we can also surmise from both the British and American experience, failed capitalist states do revert to socialism. They have no choice, having lost the colonial wealth pump. They MUST keep public order with less resources. The only way to do so is eliminate excess private wealth and more evenly distribute increasing poverty ( the existence of the rich in England is to my mind explained away by them being handmaidens to American colonialism. In general, it is a poor socialist system ). The US is well along the way down this path and will almost guarantee the increased growth of socialist philosophy.
*
Yet, may I suggest an alternate path? In between the central bank capitalism and total government control lies a system that is perhaps a better model. Fascism. No, NOT “kill all Jews” fascism. More along the lines of the original, over in Italy ( I have no knowledge of the Spanish version ). Fascism is only different from capitalism in that it doesn't have a central bank, and that private business is far less equal. It differs from socialism by introducing some free market competition, but without the waste that would demand extra resources.
*
Fascism is populist. There is a lot of attention towards providing for the poor, but it isn't charity as in socialism. It is providing for wards of the state, because they protect the state. It is, in essence, one large military run operation, yet the communists ( less timid socialists ) had the same militaristic organization. Fascists don't RUN business. They run the government which guides business. The communists both guide AND run, making it less efficient. Of course, big picture, communism shares with fascism the same distinction of not having a central bank.
*
This was why communism appeared to be beating capitalism during the Great Depression. Our central bank had to destroy the old system which was more Industrialist than anything else ( Robber Baron controlled-which had expanded the federal government for its funding. Yet, to compete and beat other colonial powers, the bankers had to gain control from the Industrialists, because now we had to emulate Britain to steal the globe from her ), and we were distracted there for a time with the shake out. In the end of course, we won the colony game.
*
Capitalism will always beat socialism, but that is because the capitalist had the resource advantage to begin with. Capitalism was created to dispose of colonial excess resources. Socialism is how the losers in that game manages the country. It isn't one philosophy being superior, it is one system having excess resources. Fascism is the alternate to socialism, but the culture MUST be conducive to its implementation. I'll cover that, tomorrow.

note: as per a loyal minions suggestion, the book by Henry Ford HERE.  It is actually hard to put it down once you get started.  Warning-the introduction was him babbling about the evils of communism and 'Murica!, which I found unreadable.  Don't be fooled by this false start.  Once you hit Chapter One, it zips along splendidly.
