safe place


SAFE PLACE

Everybody wants a safe place, which probably accounts for relocation being close to guns in the category both most talked about and most abused with fantastical notions by writers.  Nobody wants to be the next Jews wistfully gazing west towards their long departed relatives as the Nazi’s herd them into cattle cars.  Of course, most of these new “No More Jews” thinkers are living in the big cities working at Oil Age Imperial jobs that in theory allow them to finance dreams of departure, but in reality their own self-imposed golden handcuffs work far better at detention than any passport control immigration thwarting dictatorship ever could.  But I’m not supposed to talk about that.  Just as it used to be Verbodden to compare Imperial America to Expansionist Germany, both with colonial aspirations towards their neighbors,  now one mustn’t even allude to future growing generations of financially destitute masses.  That would be, why, simply unpatriotic. 

*

By now, you should all have been exposed to my strong views of expatriation.  It is, not to put too fine of a point on it because as we just established I am a swell upright flag waving American who wouldn’t even dream about upsetting anyone lest their fever dreams of wealth be debased, beyond moronic bordering on evolutionary dead ends.  Leaving this country, regardless of how bad things get, is jumping from the frying pan into the fire.  In times of energy decrease, ALL locations are having far more problems and leaving and resettling means you either can’t assimilate culturally and are soon targeted as the Evil Outsider Yankee Responsible For The US Elite exploitation Of Us, or are insulated by your wealth but also targeted eventually because of it.  Do you really want to be the White Brit living in Africa during the Mau-Mau Insurrection? Cultural differences aren’t perceived as an issue by financially padded Americans visiting abroad, as they simply throw money at any problem.  But cultural awareness is nothing short of a survival mechanism.  Without it, you are instantly branded as an outsider chimpanzee of a neighboring tribe targeted for elimination in a territorial dispute.  And as an American living in any other country, you’ll have no cultural awareness unless you grew up there.

*

Far too many Americans, because they grew up in an Imperial Capital surroundings, think money buys anything to include love and goodwill.  Those subject to Imperial currency controls and subjugation,  colonial exploitation and military occupation, meaning pretty much everyone else on the planet ( it used to be a good thing we ruled them all-now that we can’t and you can see signs of this everywhere to include losing wars to tribesmen living in dirt and squawking to Mohammed for guidance, or having country after country withdraw from the once mandatory PetroDollar, all of our controls and occupations become a hindrance rather than an income.  Akin to France being stuck with occupation of Algiers and Vietnam and that military cost, yet with no income from rubber or whatever it was North Africa gave the mother country in colonial treasure ), having existed without much if any currency, have a far different take on money.  Besides being coveted by any means fair or foul, it certainly isn’t viewed as a talisman nor is it a cloaking device on reality for them.

*

If you believe me to be engaged in bloviated hyperbole, try this little experiment.  Rather than moving to Costa Rico or wherever, just go move to a foreign country within the US.  If you are a Yankee, go down to any rural backwater Southern location.  If you are from anywhere else, go to Texas.  Any Midwesterner arriving in the swamps of Louisiana is in another culture entirely.  Any person growing up in any sane location visiting the viperous cancerous rectal growth of California will be in for a shock.  Any Easterner used to trees and water can arrive at a foreign location by visiting the desert.  Any white boy that wasn’t raised on flashing ass cracks and rap music will be on foreign soil visiting a Black ghetto.  And those areas are in your own country.  It is FAR worse in an actual non-American area.  Far worse.  Don’t.  Go.  There.

*

It is far, far better to find a quiet bubble of solitude, a remote small town surrounded by wilderness, to move to.  You still have enough cultural awareness to assimilate, even if barely.  You have a fall back escape location costing you nothing but planning and sweat equity ( to bury caches ).  And while it can be scary to be isolated, a LOT of places here are so far removed from the teeming masses of maggots on the decaying meat of urbanization that once energy supplies contract massively ( say, oh, any day now when the PetroDollar really crashes and we lose 60% or more of our oil imports ) no one is going to bother getting out there to exploit you, imprison or kill you ( your immediate neighbors are another matter entirely ).  In theory.  All things considered, it is far better to expat yourself to another American internal country.  It is also a LOT cheaper, with no government control.  We have covered all this before.  But that is just the START of the conversation. 

*

As a loving loyal minion suggested some time ago ( I had slips of paper with article ideas in varied and sundered positions and recently consolidated them into a single large easily accessible file folder.  I came across this idea and was far better wowed and impressed than when I first recorded it and just had to pursue the subject.  I told you I was a far better writer than editor or administrator, and I’m sticking with that ), expating or not, there was a far more important consideration.  Most of us know we need to reach a far safer place, granted, but what of non-simultaneous global die-off?  Far better to hunker down, or should we move to a location that has already seen a collapse of sorts and move there due to lower population?  I’ll explore if uneven collapse is relevant, the differences between hunkering or moving, and if location is everything.  To be continued next article.

pavlov cracker jacks


PAVLOV CRACKER JACKS

When you enter the work force, there are powerful psychological conditioning forces holding you there.  I’m not sure if they were started at a very young age, but most likely your parents did you no favors.  It is almost as simple as “misery loves company”.  All those creators and sponsors of advertisements could almost be imagined as subconsciously thinking, I’ve got to work at this crappy job so this ass picking snot slinging imbecilic conehead of a child can mercilessly henpeck and torment his parents for our commercialized product nobody needs but everyone will want after we surround our ad with a Saturday morning cartoon and then those guardians of said offspring can stay at their crappy job and enjoy it as little as I do.  Now multiply that by thousands of companies and millions of empty sponge brained kids.  And of course there are other factors.  Under the guise of readying ones children for the rigors of adulthood, an impressionable tike is filled with visions of unrelenting study and difficult training to achieve a crappy little job of their own.

*

One can almost wonder if a parents guidance is mostly concern but just a little bit of self justification added?   Why, a crappy job MUST be good if feeds my child.  It helps a parent sleep at night that their purposeless existence is justified.  So, in order to excuse their own lack of freedom they condemn the child to the same.  Yes, just a tiny bit hyperbolic.  And, no, I’m not trying to be that insufferable prick who becomes sober and makes fun of your alcoholism.  I’m free of the corporate world but it certainly is not for everyone or even most everyone.  The NOL won’t stop working and she has rental income coming in PLUS she is two years away from Social Security.  She just can’t stay relaxed and must keep active-and working does that for her.  I’m digging a useless hole in the ground to stay busy-and that is labor I WAS getting paid for, a lot of critics might contend.  No, my only point to these musings is for entertainment purposes.  Not judgment or feelings of superiority.  I find it amusing how easily humans-ALL of us, especially me-are controlled and manipulated. 

*

For instance, peoples politics seem to strongly center around their own personal security and have zero to do with justice, morality or group cohesion ( group cohesion has been dead for fifty years.  The collapse started back then.  But, please, do continue to insist you have another fifty to prepare for the end.  That way you can have all the needed toys ).  If you hate welfare recipients, you are either a closet racist ( more accurately a xenophobe, but mislabeled racist due to popular misconception ) or are justifying staying in your crappy little job.  As in, I feel superior because I “work”-even if it is for the official protection racket that lives by killing those who refuse to pay, then killing some of those who pay but are less important to others that pay, such as cancer patients dieing from corporate pollution.  Self-justification for wasting our lives enriching our betters through under compensated labor is just one of many ways we are manipulated.  The Elites fully understand how to pull our strings, and all it takes is a basic understanding of human nature ( and all the while they finance Political Correctness which at its core seeks to deny the ability of humans to have said nature, rather insisting loudly and shrilly that nurture is all and everything.  What better way to confuse folks as to how they are controlled? ).

*
Think of your job as a hunt for the prize in a Cracker Jack box.  I don’t know what age or what generation you wake up and say, hey, these toys used to be cool like little Monopoly game tokes, then they went to cheap plastic but NOW, the worthless whores are just rub on crappy fake tattoo’s and as useful as tits on a bull.  But the nasty tasting snack is still selling so I think kids are still falling for the false promise of sub par prizes.  So are we as adults.  We go to work for no other purpose than redistributing wealth up the pyramid.  No ones job is all that useful.  Cops enforce the monopoly of force.  Soldiers enforce colonialism and the bankers monopoly on creating Dollars.  Paramedics and EMT’s channel money into the insurance and medical industry.  The incidental savings of lives are merely window dressing justifications of existence, a ruse to wow the rubes, not their primary purpose ( of course, as my son said to me, I don’t care if the war is over oil, the PetroDollar or enriching the elite, I just want to go kill something.  Wise words I once likewise thought.  The participants are more than willing, obviously ). 

*

What are your real, true rewards other than the ability to justify wasting your life?  Cracker Jack prizes.  Little of intrinsic value but bright and shiny nonetheless.  A pretty car never paid for ( compulsory insurance, gas taxes and etc. ) and a pretty McMansion never without monetary demands ( a money pit until your sucker offspring inherit the turd ).  Pretty clothes made with slave labor and unable to handle the rigors of the gentle wash cycle, cheap quality doubling or tripling the needed cotton which competes for food growing land ( Gott forbid we legalize hemp to replace cotton ).  The ability to Facebook each other after we eat a hamburger ( look, no cost digital photography allows me to capture perfectly mundane moments! ) or clean our ass ( praise me!  I know how to wipe! ).  We are sad little puppies fully conditioned to respond to the Pavlovian dinner bell, pleased with ourselves for begging for the scraps we so adore ( and me?  “Oh, look at my shiny pretty content.  Please send me a dollar a month.  I’ll love you for it“.  Of course, thinking about it, I suppose begging beats getting screwed for money.  I think ).

article 1 of 2 today, c-oven bread


C-OVEN BREAD ( article 1 of 2 today )
*
It is far from complete but here is my Amazon Authors Page so far:click here
*
Of course you all remember my rave reviews of convection oven French fries.  And many of you probably remember way back in the day when we last talked about nuke bread.  Surely you didn’t think it was going to take long for me to try to combine the two, did you?  We all know about convection ovens cooking much tastier than conventional ones, and using half the electric plus only needing one quarter of the time to cook ( plus being able to be used on a countertop in places no oven can go ).  My “nuke bread” was a happy experiment that took flatbread and made it quicker and cheaper ( albeit producing a wet cardboard taste whereas a red hot metal skillet produced flatbread of charred ambrosia.  Flatbread is like a tortilla, but is whole wheat rather than white flour and has no lard.  It is flour and water mixed as dry as possible, rolled as flat as possible, then cooked in a few minutes while constantly flipping.  It is a middle eastern thing-much better than most of the other putrid swill produced there like garbanzo bean dip ).

*

To make nuke bread-and pay attention as this factors in later- you take whole wheat flour and add a smidge of water.  Thicker than waffle batter.  If you don’t need to spread it with a fork it is too watery.  And too watery taste even nastier than dry ( I ate this crap for years since I was able to use free power at work instead of my propane.  Breakfast and lunch every work day for six years.  It tastes terrible but is quick and easy and cheap ).  Microwave for three minutes, then flip over and cook for another three.  Boom, done.  Homemade bread for a cooking cost of under a penny.  Again, I don’t recommend this unless very poor.  I had to choke it down and was able to only because I both look at food as fuel instead of a tasty treat I owe myself for being such a marvelous contributor to humanity, and the fact I was in training for the apocalypse where wheat is my main source of calories.  I’m all for better taste if possible but it must fit in with frugality.  Unlike most folks I have no issue with surviving on wheat.  I love the stuff and eat it most meals and since I survived on nuke bread, fire cooked flatbread will be a treat comparatively speaking. 

*

The day after I put in my two week notice at work, I ordered a Victoria corn grinder ( shop around at the models.  Mine was $50 after shipping but I think you could easily find one for $40 ) and even with bad weather on the roads it was still delivered within four business days.  So of course I had to try it out immediately.  A few clumsy attempts later ( remember, it is a corn grinder, not a wheat one.  I found just a half twist open worked for the course grind, a quarter twist open for the medium grind and all the way closed with a smidge backed off so the plates don’t grind together worked for the fine grind.  It was still a bit on the gravel side rather than talcum powder fine like commercial flour.  You might be able to grind it finer, especially if you sieve it through wire mesh, but course was fine with me.  I’d rather not grind down the wheels both to see the unit last longer and to not eat metal ) and I had a cup of flour.  It was a LOT easier than I remembered.  And I’m now beginning to think it had nothing to do with Florida humidity but my own pathetic physical conditioning.

*

The last time I ground my own flour I was working as a manager at a gas station.  You move all day long, but staying on your feet is the hardest work you do.  There is no muscle or cardio involved.  That was twenty years ago ( Jesus, Joseph and Mary time flies ).  I didn’t get the job unloading a semi every week until later.  Since that gas station I’ve had only two years of a no manual labor job ( the casino in Carson City ).   First off, I can’t believe how good of shape I’m now in, fifty two years old compared to early thirties.  It is embarrassing how worthless and weak I was then.  And second, I can’t believe I ate nasty store bought whole wheat flour for eighteen years ( the last two years once I got back on grid I’ve been eating toast from store bought whole wheat and whole wheat with twelve grain type breads.  I had missed a toaster, and let me tell you, a camping toaster-the wire deal that holds the bread in a teepee shape over the gas stove- works for crap ).  I ate on that fresh ground grain like it was the best food I’ve had in years.  It was heads and shoulders above in taste compared to commercial.  And only 22 cents a pound! ( a fifty pound sack of feed store wheat was down to $10.99!!!  Buy now!!! ). 

*

First off, since the wheat is so crumbly, you need to nuke it first.  I tried adding a bit of white flour but it didn’t help.  I microwaved the bread, prepared just like nuke bread, but only cooked for 30 seconds on each side.  That cooked it just enough to hold it all together nicely.  Then I threw it in the convection oven for four minutes per side.  Nine minutes total bread.  And delicious!  Now, you can experiment.  A bit more microwave time to less C-oven time.  And you do need healthy teeth for this ( just regular nuke bread, probably a bit less than three minutes per side, say two to two and a half, will give you gooey soft bread if you have Crack Smokers Teeth.  All looking like you went to an orphanage in Great Britain and such ).  This is a bread without leavening, a flat bread.  Just flour and water.  If you need poofy bread, light and fluffy bread, this isn’t for you.  Otherwise, this bread kicks ass.  Come on!  You know you want some!  Yes, price considerations on purchasing a convection oven apply, just like with the French fries.  But if available…

guest article, 2 of 2 articles today

Article 2 of 2 today
Guest Article
*

Survivalism is a lot like the military, in that we prepare for an event that is unknown in its nature (what could SHTF be ?), its occurrence (it may be tomorrow or in ten years), duration (it could be TEOTWAWKI or just a week-long nuisance) and intensity.

 

Of course the military has a list of potential enemies and risks (natural catastrophe etc.) all sorted out by probabilities. It has dedicated crews and gear. But every member of the armed forces, no matter its rank and specialty, knows the very basic core skills and procedures.

 

Let's face it, those we want to see survive The Event is our own family. Family members have at best listened politely to your survival plans for about fifteen minutes. They have next to no survival skills, and this is what the approach should be : a no-skills approach.

 

Therefore, one should not acquire or stockpile elaborate gizmos that require reading and practice to get it going, not even mentionning maintenance and repair. As an example, it is better to stockpile lots of small gas canisters to go with the portable camping stove rather than a large propane tank on the property, linked to an elaborate heater etc.

 

The no-skills approach means that your family would still be able to survive even if you died on the very first minute of The Event.

 

Everything must be as simple and idiot-proof as possible. AR-15s do not fit into this category, but break-open shotguns do. Cars do not fit in, but bicycles and walking shoes do. Procedures, like using an improvised dry toilet or always having somebody awake at night, should also be very simple to understand and to execute.

 

As far as possible, all items should be commonplace and follow the BIC approach ( http://bisonprepper.blogspot.fr/2016/09/bic-approach.html ). Most commonplace items are designed to be much more rugged, idiot-proof and easy to use than specialized gear.

 

Here is an illustration of this concept of no-skill preparation. I believe a 10-year old child could use this setup. This is to cover a wide-spectrum denial of service : no running water, no electricity, no city gas, no internet nor mobile phone – but a few nationwide radio stations.

 

Water :

        Use bath tub or fill food-grade plastic bags like Ziploc bags (not garbage bags if possible)

        Reroute water drains to collect rain water. (relatively inexpensive, to do before SHTF)

        boil it with the portable gas stove

 

Food : stockpile food that is routinely eaten at home, even if it's not really dietetic, like Mac&Cheese. Take food that is easy to cook on a portable gas stove (no particular stocks of flour, for instance), and some that doesn't need cooking (canned fruit). Normal people are not hardcore survivalists and will keep on cooking for a while.

 

Hygiene : it depends on the water situation in the first place. A “Protect & Survive” dry toilet is IMHO the one thing that absolutely needs to be experienced by the family before SHTF.

 

See it here : http://www.atomica.co.uk/main.htm (this booklet is good wide-spectrum information). Stockpile lots of toilet paper and small plastic bags (lots and lots). Ample stocks of soap (solid and/or liquid) and toilet paper are important.

 

Electricity : there are dynamo chargers (NOT the chinese crap) and simple solar chargers, to charge AA and AAA rechargeable batteries (and then good ones, and a lot of them). These are to be used to listen to the radio (for information) and for electrical light (in case something needs to be done precisely at night – candlelight is sufficient for avoiding to bump into things at night). Frontal LED lamps are preferred (leaves both hands free).

 

Energy : two portable gas stoves (one is for backup) and lots of small, inexpensive gas cartridges, in ziploc bags (to avoid rust). Boiled water in a pan radiates heat. People ought to be able to sleep in restricted space, like a 2-second pop-up tent (even inside the house), that a pan of hot water could heat sufficiently.

 

Weaponry : two double-barrelled break-open shotguns, preferably with external hammers. One is able to aim (and shoot) while the other gets reloaded. In order to avoid confusion and difficult decisionmaking (“rubber bullets ? Warning shots with blanks/bridshot ?”), only one type of cartidge is available (a mildly loaded buckshot), and there is nothing provisioned to reload it (it's already too complicated).

 

As always readers here will obsess about the firearms aspect (I love you) so I will have to clarify : I selected the shotguns because of their extreme simplicity (no-skill) and ruggedness (very forgiving). But on the other hand, if there is a gun in a household, all members of the household must have spent some hours at the range to learn the safety rules (at least) and how to use the weapons. So in this regard we could imagine that weapons which are one step higher in complexity, like bolt-action rifles or revolvers, also fit into this approach, although it would not be “zero-skill” anymore.

 

Medicine : A fully stocked first aid kit like the one used in the household, with a booklet.

 

No extra stuff : if you have extra stuff, your people might wonder why it is here and they will spend too much attention on it. It is better to have the cartridges in your trousers' pockets at all times than in spiffy tacticool combat vests that are always somewhere else when you need them. The diversity of items must be as small as possible, or one will lose oversight. (First-World armies : take note of this !)

 

One box per week : The real work for the only survivalist in the family (you) would be to evaluate how much consumables are used up in a week. This is actually real hard work, ideally you would have to live a complete week in a post-apocalyptic setting at home to determine that.

 

We can see how difficult this already is, in spite of the setup's very basic character, and so we get an idea how more elaborate items are difficult to include in the general preparation effort.

$400 sniper part 2


$400 SNIPER part 2

Okay, you understand that I despise the M-16.  It is meant to spew out large quantities of ammunition ( I mean, DUH, it’s an attempt at an assault rifle and that is what they do ) which is fine in an Oil Age, but the inherent weakness of the design is that it fouls easily.  More firing, more fouling, quicker jams in combat.   And since the Army itself has NEVER seen a wet dream they don’t want to hump up by waking up and jerking off, they use the wrong kind of ammunition in it so that you need a triple tap to drop a Skinny.  That said, and the above the reason I won’t buy one ( besides the whole semi-auto aspect ), they are in many ways a superior weapon.  They are amazingly accurate, something an AK or an Enfield can’t brag about ( both are meant for volley fire, anyway ).  They have close to zero recoil ( which helps immensely getting that accuracy it is capable of ).  Unlike the Enfield, the place is positively buried in a surplus of spare parts for them.  I don’t consider their weight an advantage as while nice to go hiking with, it doesn’t serve well as a secondary melee weapon ( buttstroking and bayoneting ).  But, germane to this article, getting back to positives, they are almost criminally under priced.

*

Last weeks weekend newspaper ( before it was mandatory to save money-screw the trees, it cost money!-our local paper always had a weekend edition out on Saturday.  Never a Sunday paper.  Things were a bit more relaxed and lacked being newsworthy back when the gold sector wasn’t booming ) had an insert ad for a ranch store offering an AR-15 for $429!  Okay, granted, it isn’t exactly an even $400 as the title titillated you with.  With the fed background check of $25 and the $30 sales tax it is a $484 weapon.  But, $429 sounds so temptingly bargain worthy notable I couldn’t help a bit of hyperbole.  When I got out of the military in the eighties, in California used rifles were going for $500.  That’s a lot of inflation between then and now and the AR beat the Fed’s Humpery.  Back then it took a months wages to procure the firearm and now it takes barely over a third ( of course, the same claim can be made for the war surplus rifles, but it is still fascinating to me that something besides microchips and fracking oil are down in purchasing power ).

*

Of course, you MUST keep in mind that beyond patents expiring or mass market demand or commoditization, one of the reasons the price has fallen is that quality has suffered.  Buying a $400 AR is a bit of a risk to your health in a long enough time period.  BUT!  You must factor in your risks ( plural ).  Do you risk running out of ammo because yours is twice the price of 223?  Do you risk not hitting diddly and being hit in return?  Do you risk not having a distance shooter and being stuck with a rimfire or shotgun?  Is the poor quality a better risk to shoulder, for you?  If you can accept the trade-off’s, a $400 sniper might just be what the doctor ordered.  Before you go running down to the store, wife’s Emergency Only credit card greedily clutched to your heaving chest adorned with erect nipples, you are NOT, and let me repeat this because you can’t hear me with the blood pouring through your ears, NOT!, buying a big and bad and mighty and righteous Rambo killing machine semi-automatic death dealer assault rifle.  You are buying a mid range sniping rifle.

*

If you can’t grasp the tactical necessity of this, do NOT ( blah, blah, repeat…) NOT buy a cheap AR.  You will wildly spray rounds out of this less than one hundred percent quality carbine and a part will fail on you from over use.  If you are slowly sniping with this, however, the odds are very much against a crap part going bad.  And granted, this isn’t exactly a sniper rifle a professional would EVER agree to use.  But you ain’t no damn sniper skill wise.  You are, at best, with practice most survivalists won’t be getting, a marksmen.  The rifle is good enough for you.  You could buy a $900 unit with a heavy barrel, but unless that will go with your above average skill, it is a waste of money ( besides which, even high cost doesn‘t protect you against unscrupulous sellers, not in every case.  Your odds are certainly better but you still have zero guarantee ).  Better to buy more ammo and mags.  Which, speaking of, you won’t need as many as the average machinegunner.  Buy as many as you can as they are disposable items.  Granted, you’ll be keeping ONE in your rifle rather than dumping or tossing or bashing it on rocks as there is no need for Tactical Reloads.  Don’t go crazy, but don’t short yourself either.

*

A war surplus rifle is $300.  They are beat to crap.  I swear by mine ( when the Queen commissioned the Lee-Enfield no.4, the apex of bolt action battle rifle design was achieved ), but if you want better quality at better value and without the ammo or spare parts challenge, you want a modern gun.  A single shot 223 ( break open singles have the most butt simple robust system, and should be seriously considered for post-apoc use ) is $250.  Another hundred bucks gives you the option of a mag full of cartridges.  But ONLY one hundred bucks over the bolt and you’ll have the most abundant quasi-military rifle of modern times ( the AK is a TRUE military assault rifle, but far from as popular here in the States.  Unless the Chi-Coms attack, this will always be so.  Logistics matter ).  It certainly bears thinking about.  As I said, it’s not for me.  I want a thirty cal for my open wind swept terrain ( even if I limit myself to 200-300 yards given my middlin skills, the wind rarely wants to stop here and has some bearing almost all the time ).  I want a bayonet.  And I want reliability in the field ( only the Enfield and AK earned this title from combat.  The Mauser, Mossin-Nagant, and M-16 have NOT.  You think one firefight and then back to base for cleaning is a shining endorsement?  Tell me what the guys who can choose their weapon while on extended patrol carry ).  But as always, Your Mileage May Vary and an AR at barely over $400 might be the cat’s meow for you.

I don’t really believe that a huge chunk of the population has awoken to the dangers of Peak Oil ( Sweet Baby Jesus On A Tire Swing, it’s been over TEN friggin years already.  The year it hit, I was buying Southern lots for a few hundred bucks.  Those bargains are long gone, but you can still easily get junk land for $2k.  That’s only four months renting a motel room at a converted fleabag.  If cheap land is still out there, not enough people are panicking.  But by all means, please, take your sweet ass time getting yours under the assumption it will always be there for you ).  Not enough people have EVER panicked early and tried to avoid the rush.  But I’ll tell you what I think spurred the huge gun sale increases we just all were astounded by.  It wasn’t an increased awareness of impending doom.  That is just a sound bite the commies like to brandy about as they cheer for their team, the Federales ( and the commies, the Coasters, the 10%, the straw bosses of the poor serfs [ debt serfs are a class above if they are part of the Elites Bitches, poor debt serfs are just dumb asses ], they are all anti-gun, and hence anti-prepper ).

*

And it wasn’t a mass militia movement.  The grossly out of shape militia media warrior won’t ever follow up on their rhetoric, and the ex-military patriots won’t find enough professionals to be a clear and present danger.  They might have all bought more guns, but I think their numbers are inflated.  It is easy to pound your chest and proclaim that They will have to pry your cold dead hands off of your pimping plastic carbine, but that doesn’t make you a militia member, just a sad blowhard.  No, I believe there was one overriding ( not the only, just the major ) reason that so many guns were sold during the First Kenyan’s reign and it was racism.  Honkies are not as illiterate and retarded as is portrayed.  They could easily see almost immediately the Get Out Of Jail card that Obammy issued to the ghetto dwellers.  Every passing month that became more clear, and semi’s, mags and ammo sales sprinted ahead.  If the Blacks were allowed to beat you to death and no Black police chief with the blessing of a Black president was going to even pretend to look for the culprits ( perhaps they are look alike to themselves, also?  Okay, a joke in poor taste, but, what?  You could have resisted? ), an urban equalizer was a damn skippy good investment.

*

Of course, you can’t ADMIT that is what you were a-skeert about, not even to your drinking buddies, so you just kind of played the Anti-Gun Liberal Card.  Much safer, given today’s politically correct climate ( hey, I don’t hate black skin, I just choose to NOT live near a black culture that celebrates hating ME ).  Even if there was an element of economic collapse fear, it was closely tied in with riots following the events.  Go ahead, tell me I’m wrong.  Nothing works as well stampeding the White Herd.  To effectively Divide And Conquer you need a credible threat, and They are definitely that.  Okay, so, many wonderful things happened during this time, industry wide.  The once proud American gun companies learned how to produce much cheaper firearms.  Yes, the quality suffered, but since nobody could afford much ammunition the odds were you’d never shoot your piece enough times to find this out.  You could at least afford to protect yourself and that was the main criteria, not being able to pass down an heirloom to your heirs. 

*

Another thing was, everyone and his brother started vomiting forth entire Third World Armies Arsenals worth of AR-15’s.  During the shortages and high prices, quality did suffer on occasion even in the “better” brands, and there is a LOT of Nike Brand Price Penalty, but by and large everyone can either buy quality at an AK price or spend three quarters of that for an entry level unit.  Yes, it will break off parts sooner.  No, you don’t need to concern yourself with that.  Buying a high priced better quality AR is a suckers game for a survivalist.  Because, one, there will be a LOT of them for salvage ( you can bet that after all the mags and mag accessories and Pimp Daddy accessories, few will have enough finances for much ammo.  After a time with a surplus of dry rifles around, they won’t be worth a whole lot )( this might be a good place to insert a word on steel case 223 ammo.  Look over at the Lucky Gunner web site for their torture test.  Short version, extraction wasn’t as big a problem, even though it was a factor, as throat and barrel erosion from the propellant.  As in, after 5k rounds kiss your barrel goodbye.  My point is that those cheap bastards saving a dime a round probably ruined the gun on their way to dying.  A few months after collapse your issue is ammo, not the gun ).

*

And two, you shouldn’t be using the carbine as instructed.  My hatred of the M-16 has lasted a lifetime and won’t ever change.  It has a butt ton of positive factors going for it, all negated by tactical and logistical screw-ups and while it can be, carefully, used by the survivalist it should never have been a military standard rifle.  But you, yourself, can make lemonade out of lemons if you pay attention to common sense and forget everything ever told to you by your government and anyone who ever listened to the government.  The M-16 is NOT a good military carbine.  A carbine which jams in dirt in the field is NOT something you want to bet your life on.  A jamming carbine shooting a crappy round is even worse.  What the M-16 does wonderfully is preserve forests, making for a happy eco-warrior, waste large amounts of ammunition, and serves as a submachinegun for troops whose only job is to act as a tripwire for artillery response ( I tried watching the movie “Patton” the other day and was simply amazed at the bullspit propaganda that so well masked the utter incompetent Army bureaucracy of that war and all others following it [ given the short period of conflict and the high casualty rate, WWI might have been even worse.  I give officers a pass for the War Of Northern Aggression since they at least had the decency to die with their men ].  Our military has been and still is regardless of official protests to the contrary,  fully invested in Second Generational warfare. A shame, I loved that movie when I first saw it ).  Tomorrow, the new and amazingly cheap AR sniper rifle.

hoo-ers 2


HOO-ERS part 2
*
note: The NOL's trackball mouse took a dump, and her only solitary entertainment is a few hours of computer games a day, so we had to go out shopping.  I noticed several things.  Wally has $7.28 per 40 pound bags of whole corn.  For those who like corn and can't find a feed store.  In the animal section.  Also at Wally, the convection oven is down to $79 from $99.  And if you can find one of the fast disappearing K-Marts, their white Zote soap is only .79 cents (the pink is an insane $1.50 ).  I cleared the shelf.  On a happier note, I got a job trainee and was able to finish work two days prior than my two week notice.  Free at last, bitches!
*
Girl Power advocates who hate the idea that prostitution should be legal fully endorse the idea that marriage is only a financial position made only to their advantage and that infidelity should have zero consequences.  I guess it must be said aloud that these bitches be craphouse crazy, yo!  I humbly submit to you that while The Pill ( probably the last great technological innovation except the microchip.  You’ll note that at the time of this birth controls popularity, another “innovation” came out by the name of the M-16 rifle, and that just goes to prove, alongside the expended depleted uranium rounds friendly forces suck in with their oxygen, if it’s new doesn’t mean it’s right ) made pre-marital sex possible, the Bra Burners didn’t need to throw the baby out with the bath water.  Don’t lay waste to the whole marriage and nuclear family culture just so you can go hoping from bed to bed until you can find a guy who knows what a clitoris is. 

*

I mean, I grant you, read a coffee table book once in awhile, will ya?  Men can be rather dick-ish as they fail to attempt to please their sexual partner ( the baby mamma called me a selfish lover, but I submit to you that if you won’t put out except every two weeks and keep a young lad in his twenties full up Blue Balls, you are going to find sex over rather quickly-in retrospect this was just a self serving cuckolding dingus hater getting up the nerve to justify holding children ransom for money ).  How hard is it?  Satisfy her first.  Put a bit of effort into it.  Anyway, men are not known for their lack of faults, but women are barely better and we men put up with their crap all our lives and come hat in hand begging for more.  Are our less desirable propensities cause for taking a big steamy squishy on the whole institution of marital union?  One would think not.  But Bitches Libbers are quite happy with the current state of affairs, infidelity absolutely no grounds for divorce.  Child support for another’s biological offspring and so many more PC versions of hell on earth.  We showed dem de money!  They aren’t giving it up. 

*

Until, suddenly, one day a curious thing happens and western civilization collapses.  Nobody is around making money off of suppressing marriage ( a binding arrangement for the security of both women and their offspring, at the expense of the father/husband, and NOT as propagandized the awarding of chattel to an oppressor ) and gals suddenly find themselves in a curious position of no longer being dominant.  And of course by that I mean the majority of the Blue State women, the liberal harpies who are financially invested in the dismantling of traditional families, or those who are not as militant but still are financially dependent of that system ( I understand none of my Loyal Minion Gals are of this stripe-they wouldn’t stick around reading if they were politically correct.  Take this as a condemnation of a certain class rather than as a whole gender ).  And there are plenty of those bitches around ( even plenty of gals in Red States skim the cream off of the lucre all the while parroting traditional values ).  Do you think any of them are going to be a viable candidate for sharing a plate with other survivors?  They are pure poison.

*

And this is were evolution comes into play.  PC quickly becomes an evolutionary dead end.  Nobody is going to nourish that toxic brain or allow it to spawn.  Cultural norms will quickly assert themselves.  But that is not to say a nice body doesn’t have its uses.  You might have no family or tribe to support you, but you can support yourself.  Prostitution has always been rife during economic down times, epidemic in catastrophes such as total war ( nation states were birthed after the chaos of complete warfare without limitations, a legitimate response to anarchy.  They moderated wars effects on civilians.  Today, the nation state is/has lost its appointed role through its inability to control the consequences of armed conflict within its own borders.  It has lost its legitimacy ), but here we are looking at a highly centralized overly complex  global organization already collapsing and as soon as we see that tip over the waterfall final curtain call, total war and catastrophic failure doesn’t begin to cover what will occur.

*

Women are great social beings.  They are the glue that fastens the tribe.  Unfortunately one of the side effects of that is that they can be chameleons.  They change outlook to take advantage of local conditions.  This enables them to assimilate into a new tribe after marriage, traditionally ( or, to become comfortable after a time as war trophies.  As a survival mechanism it ensures optimal offspring conditions ), and goes most of the way towards explaining their mercenary nature as divorce began to pay so handsomely.  So regardless of the negative aspects of this genuine-change-upon-demand, that is just how gals are wired.  Come collapse, suddenly sex and sex for food isn’t so bad.  But unfortunately for them, now there arises another issue.  There be bitches everywhere trying to get paid in a very scarce currency-food.  Lady parts are everywhere for rent, but food is far too scarce to be wasted.  Sex has become commoditized, far too available to be worth much of anything. 

*

Not to be confused with wives.  Those are still a much higher prized possession.  Do younger gals think they are going to compete with older, far more frail but PROVEN mettle wives?  Sure, plenty of guys are going to cheaply rent mistresses.  But not at first.  Not during the die-off.  During the time gals need to sell their bodies the most, there will be no demand.  Food is reserved for family and tribe, and PC bitches, unattached due to their attitudes, will quickly become hoo-ers and just as quickly die off from lack of resources.  They’ll go from “exploited” princesses to dry unused crotch corpses.  Evolutionary biology reigns supreme once again.  Adopt the approved survival traits or die ( okay, assured death.  Even those doing everything correctly can still die.  Their odds are just better ).
