oh I've got a feeling 1 of 2


OH, I’VE GOT A FEEEEELING

I don’t know if it is just me, but I’ve had a very bad feeling about this new year.  It has been scratching at the back of my brain for some time but I wasn’t sure if it was It, if you know what I mean.  As I never tire of telling everybody, I despise Christmas with every fiber of my being, asswhore corporate douche bags ruining what should be a nice religious holiday for most of us or a nice Earth Mother equinox “slaughtering the cows that can’t be fed for one last feast” vibe some of us experience, not just by commercializing it or utterly trivializing it, but most important of all making it more work for yours truly which of course is the cardinal sin of them all.  So I wasn’t sure if that voice was just Grinch Angst, my displeasure at all the capitalists worshiping the almighty buck for the season and making me shed my blood sweat and tears as their sacrificial tribute, no more modern or scientific than the bare assed savages of yore who slaughtered an ewe at the alter of a pagan God in hopes of gaining favor ( capitalists worship perpetual growth, no more rational than the deities of ancient times, and if you are wont to disregard their holy of holy ideals you too shall be sacrificed ).

*

The Season Is The Reason for stress, hatred and discontent, but as you might recall if you took the slightest interest in my troubles and tribulations, last year was actually rather good to me overall.  I found my new lady, the best thing that has happened to me romantically my whole life.  Domestic bliss has still not lost its gleam of newness and uniqueness.  Sorry, I just naturally assumed that bitches and ho’s were there to make your life a living hell on earth so that you would pray for the sweet release of death, a motivation to work extra hard ( and If I may be so bold, all you bastards were the direct beneficiaries of my suffering and dysfunction ).  And yes, I worry again of too much good things leading to a curse befalling me to balance the cosmic scales of my life ( ie, I expect a extra helping of life’s crap sandwich ), but I also figure anyone over fifty years of age is living on borrowed time anyway ( I am not in the slightest blinded by the illusion of our modern health care system being there for me to keep me alive so I’ve long ago resigned myself to a sudden and unannounced death whenever ) so I’m not going to stress that the old gal might die and leave me alone again.  I’ve just been kicking back and enjoying the ride, suspending my normal cynicism in this one regard.  So, what I’m getting at here is that as far as I am able to psychoanalyze myself, nothing in my personal life or at my job should be responsible for a major increase in my normal levels of paranoia.  The job sucked as expected, so no surprises leading to increased stress, and my love life is going swimmingly which should result in a higher happiness quotient.   After clearing the background noise I’ve ascertained that the new year is legitimately eerie and scary.  More Next Article

  1. I too harbor a feeling of the ominous approach of the horrendous unknown. In years past the unknown was always manageable here at ground level, now, not so much. Too many BIG things in the works and none of them any good for normal people.

    Regarding your current romantic bliss: the ether hasn't worn off yet so enjoy it as you can.

    I too have long regretted the onslaught of christmas and mostly all the verminous baggage velcroed on top of it. If it was like it was say 50 years ago I could deal, but any more it all just seems so plastic and detached. I try to shun it and avoid it but my ball n chain (ether has long ago worn off) keeps dragging me kicking and screaming all the way through it.

    Dying suddenly and completely?
    Keep dreaming, as that rarely happens any more.
    Most likely your death will be drawn out in the most unimaginable and horrific way possible as the medical establishment furthers their knowledge base by your guinea pig reactions to all the chemicals and processes they have in store for you and everybody else.

    If you can still connect 2 thoughts together and have function of one hand you can try to keep a pistol close so that your last effort will be to thwart the bastards and avail your sweet release. At least that's my game plan. I don't easily surrender control.

  2. You are not alone with feelings of foreboding about the New Year.

    For the longest time, I have felt that the Neocons running the show in Washington will have no problem escalating the brewing conflict with Russia and China to the point of a nuclear exchange; after all they are the ones who got the First Strike in place as an option now, instead of MAD.
    And with our weak president supposedly running the show, they might send this brinkmanship up to the point of no return.

    Thank God, Russia has a statesman at the helm instead of a hotheaded ass who never got into a fight in his whole life.

    I also believe this could be the year that the economy and the stock market finally take the Dump of all Dumps.

    Guess I had better study your book about prepping under $500 before the money becomes totally worthless!

    1. "PEE" is an update of the Frugal Survivalist, as it is much harder now to squeeze under the $500 mark, but either one should work for you.

  3. I thought that some of the minions might appreciate this article James. This is an article by Kurt Saxon on survival weaponry, that pretty much instills the same exact psychology as yourself on this subject over the last several years. For all I know, this was possibly your main inspiration? In either event, it makes sense, and is a decent article. A few excerpts below:

    "Banging away in the same general direction is just a senseless waste of ammo. You need practice, not rapid-fire. You also need a realistic attitude, not a fantasy."

    "But fantasy sells. There is big money in Macho. The more awesome your weapon looks and sounds, the tougher and sexier you look. Girls get off on rapid-fire. It's the Freudian part of the package."

    "The Rambo Survivalist image being sold to neurotics is making weapons dealers rich. It is also showing the profound ignorance of weapons among the general public."

    "There were about ten men banging away on semi-auto, as fast as they could shoot. They were all pointing, as they were shooting too fast to correct aim. I suppose they were all wealthy, as ammo costs a lot. Whatever practicality there might be in such weapons, only the wealthy can afford them."

    1. Saxons gun views, that I remember after all those years, was the three gun battery. I imagine the above article worked on my subconscious, however.

    2. It's the same article James. I just left out the introductory paragraph.

      "A pistol for the bedroom,
      A shotgun over the door,
      A 30-06 for reaching out;
      You don't need any more."

    3. The more I read on military logistics, peak oil and peak ore, and sundry subjects, the more I came to dislike semi's. I just wonder if I was channeling Kurt the whole time.

  4. You aren't alone in the feeling that the new year is legitimately scary.
    Stock markets keep stair stepping down,
    Storms deposit LIQUID rain on the north pole recently, while the southern USA gets early and harsh storms,
    Crops do not post record yields,
    Global shipping is at a record low,
    POTUS and one of the major contenders for the spot keep moving toward a gun seizure situation that could push the USA into civil war,
    Steve Harvey gives the miss universe title to the wrong girl on live TV- and then lets both suffer the embarrassment of crowning.
    Police are feeling put upon because of the advent of the citizen journalists and internet bringing all their misdeeds to light.
    Racism from the 'minorities' is growing by leaps and bounds.
    The crest of debt, oil, and possibly technology, is here or approaching at breakneck speed.
    The changes and challenges can no longer be ignored or put off for much longer.
    And no organization or institution is ready for it all. Most aren't even ready for _any_ of it...

    1. I would contend that the police view themselves as innocent, overworked and over constrained and view reporting as "against them". It is a thankless job with the minority the douchebags ( except in the FedGov forces )

  5. I'm with you Lord Bison. 2016 is the election and Obummers last year in office. Or is it? Martial law could change that. And look at the havoc the refugees are causing in Europe. It is largely unreported here. I fear alot of serious crap could happen this year. The economy, power grid, energy, food, large scale war, pick your poison. Both my kids mommas are giving me grief at the same time and using my kids to do it.

    I do not see anything getting better unless I get the winning power ball ticket. I feel like we are rapidly approaching the end of the proverbial rope and it is tied in a noose.

    Looking forward to the rest of this article.

  7. "...but I also figure anyone over fifty years of age is living on borrowed time anyway..."

    Good for you, Jim! Right attitude!

    Historically most of never made fifty...you can't fix stupid...but one can (metaphorically) shake other people to try and be grateful for what they have.

  8. Here in France, there is an absolutely creepy mood for some months. It dominates every conversation.

    I think these are the times we knew would be coming sooner or later.

    Perhaps the telling sign for me is that I don't have elaborate prepping plans or last-ditch shopping lists this time. I just hope that what I have is going to be enough. (if it is appropriate or not comes second...)

  11. “but I also figure anyone over fifty years of age is living on borrowed time anyway”


    Will be turning 52 this year, and sad but true. I was somewhat surprised to hear of David Bowie's passing this morning at age 69, since to me at least, he seemed to be in relatively good health? He managed to maintain his weight at a good level for all these years, which is the biggest battle for most of us past a certain age, and also what seems to be the cause of most health related issues.

    I was discussing this with my brother some time back, and while you will often see a reasonable number of people that live into their late 70's, 80's and beyond, you will also see a good deal of those that do not live past their 60's or even early 70's. I guess once you hit 50, you can generally expect about another 20 years, but you really can't count on it?

    1. I imagine Bowie was quite the party animal, and excuse me for being non-PC but he seemed gay, so between coke and ass that has to take some years off your life. Hell of an artist, of course.

    2. "and excuse me for being non-PC but he seemed gay"


      Not necessary James. If I wanted PC, I'd follow the other joker.


      With regards to the gay thing, I can't say for certain, but I've read on more than one occasion that the gay/bisexual theme was merely a gimmick to drum up publicity. Recall that this was back in the day before it was all the rage to come out as a "rump ranger", and I think that he was going for the trendsetter/shock value aspect of it all?

      And yes, he partied pretty hard, and smoked like a train. I've now lost a few family members to the weed (tobacco). Horribly addicting and unhealthy habit.

    3. But point well taken James. Taking it up the bum on a regular basis is generally not conducive to one's long term health.

      I'm actually surprised that Tommy “Been takin it up the ass for the better part of 50 years” Kirk is still alive?

  12. Wow, its so good to see my parnoia isn't totally unjustifiable. The zombies around me continue to sleep or toke into oblivion including a friend I thought would be a doomer buddy but he checked out a while back. I feel alone in the unsettling emotion of slow panic so I continue to prep with the meager pittance I am living on, shivering in an old camper after loosing all hopes of proper housing, continuously getting layed off. Perusing the food pantries, knowing its only going to be all out survival soon. At least I'm having practice trying to live on very little. But the gut feeling is intense and pervasive. Moving faster at meager preps cuz somethins just not right anymore. Darkness calling angels to prepare. Heed the voice.

  13. You know the old saying, the difference between comedies and tragedies: comedies end in marriage, marriages end in tragedy. Good marriages, the tragedy is that they come to an end; bad marriages, that they didn't come to an end sooner.

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.
