black turkey


BLACK TURKEY

It seems that some folks are mistakenly seeing black swans which are actually just black turkey’s ( Black Friday and Turkey Day ).  Yes, black turkey’s are highlighting how bad the economy is and no, Turkey is not provoking Russia into a war to distract their population.  Starting wars to save the economy made plenty of sense eighty years ago prior to Peak Credit and Peak Oil and Peak Resources, but now all most folks can afford is War Lite which just costs a lot without any other benefit except internal control.  For that you need a made up or even genuine if you have it terrorist element.  Turkey has the Kurdish incursion as well as surrounding middlin level threats from other nation states.  I’m not saying that the Russian plane being shot down wasn’t a provocation designed to get the Bear responding.  What I am saying is that it probably wasn’t Turkey if that was the intent ( it could have just simply been an accident nobody wants to admit to.  Keep in mind plenty of those occurred during the much hotter Cold War and we managed to avoid nuking each other ).  If the current theory going the rounds was that Turkey is hurting economically so it started a war, why didn’t they do that countless times before during economic calamities?  Turkey has been a basket case financially since during the Ottoman Empire ( some good periods followed by bad, but the mean seems to be bad rather than good ).

*

Everyone’s economy is doing poorly, even China ( we lost our industrial sector due to Peak Oil and China is losing theirs as the rest of the globe contracts financial.  Less oil or less customers, a growth paradigm economy can’t handle anything other than growth )( and speaking of Peak Oil, to the minion enquiring about the book “Black Gold Stranglehold”, it was complete crap.  The abiotic oil section was good enough but their case against Peak was only made by ignoring many facts.  Such as they could only claim US production grew after Hubbert’s prediction by including Alaska and the Gulf of Mexico oil, which was specifically EXCLUDED by Hubbert himself.  They also showed their asses on other areas such as playing the tired and patently false “America never was and certainly is not now an empire”.  What a bunch of ignorant whores ).  And you don’t see everyone rushing off to war.

*

Just because the US pulled its chestnuts out of the Depression fire by turning into a fascist state engaged in perpetual war and colonization ( prior to the Depression, colonization was started in the 1860’s for fun and profit.  Come the Depression, war was necessary for the bankers and industrialists very survival ) does not mean every swinging dingus out there reverts to war in times of economic contraction. 

*

As a side note on our economy, the local one seems to be stalling nicely.  I noticed almost no traffic all morning Black Friday, no business was any busier than normal ( with most being far less than usual ) and nobody sold anything by staying open Thanksgiving morning.  I filled up the truck with donations far in excess of a normal day.  For instance, in one store the deli donations were equal to a full weeks worth.  Obviously the humptards overstocked single meals thinking the losers without family or those forced to work would stop by to get a heat and eat meal.  But it was everything that didn’t sell such as rolls and pies and cakes and crap.  The overstocking points to desperation in the grocery retail sector and the lack of Black Friday activity spells out far less money being available ( and this is in a town doing better than most due to the mines.  Granted, they have slowed down and a lot of contractors are cutting back on help, but when I first moved here the one independent coffee shop was put out of business by Starbucks.  Now, besides two Starbucks, there are three independents.  Yuppie Scum populations here have grown and you know how they love to spend money of stupid crap.  For them not to be out shopping… ).

  1. Cyber Monday (today) is going to be either the final nail in this years retail sector performance or the rescuing knight.
    I know NONE of my big city (or small town) friends went to any black Friday sales, and only know of two people planning on making a big push today to purchase something 'on sale'. It could just be the quality of my friends, but I know several used to me more interested in that sort of thing have now decided it is to much effort for too little reward.

  2. I heard on the news that there was lots of people out in stores looking at and fondling the merchandise then ordering online right there using a smart phone. I had to work, it all looked same as usual inside a nuclear power plant. More traffic with stupider than usual drivers as I made my way back to the bunker. Nice mane you're sporting!

    1. I'm beginning to think that worse traffic with stupider drivers happens randomly all the time.

  4. "to the minion enquiring about the book “Black Gold Stranglehold”, it was complete crap."


    Twas I James. I figured it was probably a load of crap, but admittedly I do not keep up on such matters as do you. I heard it being pawned late one night on the radio by one of the authors, and it piqued my curiosity, so I figured I would pass it on to you, and let you roast it.

    1. It was a shame it turned out to be huckster fodder, as they did start out okay on abiotic oil. They were in too much of a hurry to tar Hubbert, however, and turned to shrill propaganda. The case could have been made without that. And that was the best part, going downhill from there. Really? They are still trying to hawk that product? Wow. Embarrassing.

    1. Only free for Unlimited, $3 otherwise. I put it in my wish list but right now still burned out on fiction.

    2. Well, the first half of the book was awesome -- some of the best I've read in a while.

      But the second half turned into battle porn with unlimited ammo and evil military cannibal people. Bummer.

    Thanks for the clarification. For a moment I thought that you were referring to Jamal that lives up the street from me ;)

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
