relax francis


RELAX, FRANCIS

Remember one of the funniest movies of all time, “Animal House”?  The retard guy with the Poindexter glasses pipes up after the fraternity knows they are screwed after failing to maintain a suitable grade average ( and hence will be reported to the draft board as eligible ).  “Well, what the hell are we going to do now, ya Mo-Rons?”.  Funny because he’s calling other people a moron?  Seriously?  You’re not smiling right now, recalling the scene ( I could be off on the details-perhaps it was in another situation?  )?  What am I going to do with you people?  Okay, here’s another one.  Not as funny of a movie because it was with one of the many overrated cast of Saturday Night Live; “Stripes”.  The uptight guy, Francis,  is threatening bodily harm to all his basic training mates if they do anything to piss him off.  “Any of you homo’s touch my stuff, I’ll kill you!” “Any of you call me Francis, I‘ll kill you“.  The Drill Sergeant then calls him Francis, telling him to relax. 

*

Folks have a hard time relaxing anymore, and I know I’m one of them.  At times I can get wound pretty tight.  Usually when I’m getting screwed over by someone and I can’t butt stroke them or bayonet them for fear of going to jail and getting probed.  I mean, sure, I understand.  If we were given permission to administer justice there wouldn’t be any indentured servants left to work for our masters.  Nor any straw bosses enforcing their masters dictates.  That doesn’t make it right that the deserving escape punishment.  And I’m certainly not telling you to NOT hold a grudge.  Hate keeps you warm ( “Red Dawn the original” since we are on movies right now ).  And hate allows you to hold on to the slightest bit of dignity after all the rectal licking, ass kissing, kowtowing and obsequious behavior you are forced to engage in.  And hate keeps you alert and ready ( I assume it is understood this is mostly directed at males.  We might be denied our warrior heritage due to the state mandate on the monopoly of violence, but you never forget your biology-you just need to keep channeling your true nature for when you can use it again ).

*

But even being stressed, uptight and hateful, you do need to learn how to relax once in awhile least you go insane or Postal.  As nice as it might be to deliver deserved comeuppances, it is unfortunately only a one time deal.  Then you end up in prison, and if you are a white boy, that is one place you need to try to stay out of.  You’d have a better chance of survival streaking naked through Harlem shouting the N-Bomb at the top of your lungs.  I used to be able to engage in one activity a day to relax and unwind ( after my drinking days.  The unfortunate issue with alcohol as a relaxant is that work and other people issues intrude on the process and before you know it your stress levels have increased ).  Then I had to keep adding to that as my stress just kept increasing ( and you thought being debt free with a part time job was relaxing-hell no!  It is MORE relaxing and there is LESS stress, but not proportionately ).

*

Now just reading and escaping reality won’t work.  Adding TV to relax the brain at night barely does anything.  It used to be writing was very helpful.  Then I needed to add cardio exercise.  Nowadays, I can ONLY relax while doing one of the above, but it does NOT carry over much past the active part of that time period I am engaged in the activity.  And now I’ve added another-rolling cigarettes.  I only started because I’m so sick of rich humpers passing more taxes on the poor working class I’ll go out of my way to avoid them if at all possible.  I’m happy to be working under the hours requiring the Obammy Health Care Tax.  I don’t care if it means I have very little disposable income.  And if I need to spend twenty minutes a day rolling cigarettes to keep $3 a week out of the hands of our douche bag governor, I’ll do it.  Perhaps not happily.  But as a matter of necessity.

*

I could spend more money on more equipment and spend just twenty minutes a week, but that defeats the purpose of keeping more of my money.  And, it has become another period of relaxation.  I laboriously weigh out all the tobacco, stuff it into tubes, pack the filter on the table to settle the leaves and then twist the surplus paper so nothing falls out later.  Boring.  And this is the exact same process I envision on reloading my ammunition.  All affordable, cheap equipment, the bare minimum, and spending a lot of time on each round.  Not only have I traded my time so as to not spend money, I’ve gained another relaxation activity.  I bring up the Lee Loader, and I get grief because all other presses churn out far more ammunition far more quickly.  But the important thing is not just learning to relax, but to learn how to replace our modern lifestyle in order to do so ( and yes, I’m aware that I consume a lot of Industrial Age items in my pursuit of relaxation-it is a necessary first step towards easing away from the hustle and bustle ).

*

If you think about almost everything we do, it is all about EVERYTHING we used to do for ourselves being turned into a consumer activity ( supported by more time at the job and more debt ).  And it isn’t as if there are any easy answers fighting against that.  For instance, just having a place of your own to be out of the bankers claws means in almost every state you pay insane property taxes that dictate you need at least a casual income to pay.  And if you work at any level of income that supports a family, and that property, you get sucked into the medical insurance system which now rivals-if not surpasses-the levels of taxation that collapsing Rome employed to drive its poor into serfdom or fleeing to barbarian held territory.  It is pretty darn scary how much we resemble that empire in decline.  So why should prepping be any different, right?  Don’t saw down that tree by hand-buy multiple chainsaws and all the parts and fuel and fuel accessories.  Don’t learn how to be a woodsman, buy semi-auto’s and buy enough ammunition to destroy your enemy wherever he is hiding there.  Being a Luddite doesn’t just mean rejecting ( or at least seriously minimizing ) Industrialism because it won’t last much longer but also because it gets you off the money-centric treadmill.

  1. Minimizing involvement in the money economy is a good thing to some extent.
    But time has a value as well.
    It makes no sense to try to build a house completely by hand including the cutting of the lumber, digging the holes, etc., when you can use industrial age equipment to get it done in a tiny fraction of the time it would otherwise take you. Especially when it is a one time usage. You shouldn't need to dig a house sized hole more than once or twice in a lifetime.
    There are also industrial age products that do not have a good pre-industrial equivalent (Styrofoam insulation, glass pane windows, solar thermal hot water and electric lights. Using these is just common sense. Stocking up on enough of them that you will never need more - also makes sense.
    Relying on continuing usage of perishable industrial age products (chainsaws, ATV's, cheap grocery store food, etc.) means you have to stock enough supplies to last the rest of your life, and even then your kids will probably run out - that is when you need the manual earlier implementation. And considering the price difference between a lifetime stock-up on perishable industrial age products and simpler non-industrial quality tools, it might make sense to get more hand saws and axes (or boots and socks) and start using them instead of the chain saws (or ATV's).

    1. The great thing about living cheap and/or off grid is into the learning curve you increase efficiency/savings and the whole thing just gets easier and easier. It isn't a constant state of deprivation as many dread.

  2. The start with you quoting film lines brought up this I noticed a few days ago after the POS Muslim went knife happy at the Minn. mall.
    Anyone else notice that the Crossroads Mall it happened at is the same one used for the 2004's Dawn Of The Dead movie?

    Maybe Zombie's do exsist, they just carry Korans now.

    1. I was never aware that was where the movie took place. Cool.

  3. Yeah, Francis seemed to want to kill an awful lot of people over an awful lot of reasons, which in today's society would make an awful lot of sense, but less so 30 years ago when society still maintained some semblance of normalcy.


    “And if you work at any level of income that supports a family, and that property, you get sucked into the medical insurance system which now rivals-if not surpasses-the levels of taxation that collapsing Rome employed to drive its poor into serfdom or fleeing to barbarian held territory.”


    I think that today's system James is basically set up so that for all but the few, or the very poor, having a family pretty much insures that you will always be a wage slave. There is also no shortage of do gooder jackasses that will drop a dime on you in a second, and report you for “child abuse” which takes surprisingly little these days.

    As a side note, does anyone actually give a rats ass about the Kardashians, Brangelina getting a divorce, or some Chutney Ferret that thought that he was a chick, and aside from the pervert liberals mourning his loss, no one ever heard of, and that we later find out had been battling HIV for 30 years (surprise, surprise right?). The masses seem to be clueless about how dire the circumstances are. Bread and circuses.

    1. The masses being ignorant is good. Not enough for everyone to prep even if they wanted to.

  4. "If you think about everything we do, it is all about EVERYTHING we used to do for ourselves being turned into a consumer activity."

    How true. I think it was that Hugh-Smith bloke with the blog, "Of Two Minds" who wrote that having a vegetable garden was a revolutionary act. I thought he was just being a smart aleck but there's a kernel of truth there. An activity with no State control.

    1. Good author-his books are even better than his blog, and several are on KU.

  5. For Wayne, regarding yesterdays comment section.
    Unless your lot and the surrounding ones are completely flat, you should be able to hide your house. Take the material that was removed during excavation and create a berm around the entrance for privacy. Be sure to design your structure to handle at least 3' of soil over your roof for maximum thermal efficiency (and protection from errant fallout particles). If your plan to stay warm during the winter involves burning sagebrush, you'll soon run out of sagebrush and you won't be able to lure even any rabbits near you and your de-vegetated area. Be sure your entrance is oriented towards uphill, facing the direction of approach of the natural drainage pattern per "The $50 and up Underground House Book." After your roof is covered and your berm is built, transplant sagebrush and whatever else is native so that it blends in.
    Peace out

    1. Thanks for the input peace out. It is based on the Storey's “How to build a root cellar,” a copy of which I also sent to James a while back for some ideas. Though I may go with something even simpler, since Joe builder I'm not. Haven't actually been there yet, but the topography looks to be pretty hilly.

      Looking to avoid all codes, either by stealth, or maximum allowed size prior to needing a permit, but in reality, a combination of the two. Might have a well ventilated and fire proofed sectioned off sleeping area heated by 3”x12” pillar candles (90 hours burn time; think seal blubber lamp heating igloo, and that's the goal I'm shooting for) but at the most, a very small woodstove that I'll probably just buy the small amount of wood that I will hopefully only need.

    2. Be careful of candles. I've read that most candles give off bad stuff like lead and other nasties.

    3. Thanks for the heads up IH. Yes, I was aware that some candles have lead in the wicks. I make all of my own candles, and use 100% cotton wicks. You bring up a good point though since it's worth noting that paraffin is a petroleum product, and some people, particularly those that have allergies are sensitive to burning it. I will take your advice and shy away from the paraffin, and use the cleaner and longer burning soy wax (same price) instead. But instead of a pillar, I will make 2 or 3 wick container candles.

  6. My advice was only meant in the sense that you also obtain a building permit and comply scrupulously with all regulations so that you won't get in trouble with the county :-)

    1. Well, hell, we all want to comply with every law, ONLY being there to benefit us all as a compassionate caring homogenous society and never at all being used as a means to enrich any one.

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.
