wrapping a chicken


WRAPPING A CHICKEN
*
note: I recommend "A Long Time Until Now" ( http://amzn.to/2gRo9qb ) which is one of the authors better ones, is pretty cheap for a near thousand page book, AND covers the difficulties in manufacturing anything in a primitive environment.
*
Let’s cut through all the glittery unicorn farts and stop acting like puffer-fish on our blogs.  The American people sold out to the international bankers, en masse, during the Great Depression ( you could make a case for earlier, such as during Prohibition, but the close to universal disregarding of that law at least showed that freedom was still taken seriously ).  The election slogan “a chicken in every pot” quickly turned into Wrapping The Chicken In The Constitution.  After spinelessly allowing themselves to be drafted after FDR allowed the Nips to bomb Pearl Harbor ( you can leer and be snide to Leftists, but at least they had the stones to refuse to be meekly turned into southeastern Asian cannon fodder.  To be clear, I have no problem with a draft, but only if it is defensive, not imperialistic [ the Civil War was northern imperialism ] ), “The Greatest Generation” stayed on the public dole the rest of their lives ( GI Bill, defense contractor job, Social Security ).  In effect, they voted that they would rather have a job instead of freedoms.

*

So before you were born, your fathers and grandfathers made the choice for you.  Better to join the Central Bankers economy than to be free.  I’m certainly not judging them, or you, because the same problem back then was what faces us now.  You would be a damn fool to rebel when you have nobody joining you.  You have to simply go along with what the rest of the douche bags are doing, or you die or rot in jail.  Granted, at the beginning a very few freedom fighters could have made the difference.  After that, it got harder and harder to make any difference as the centralized fascism became more and more entrenched.  So it became much easier to recognize the futility of rebellion and less easy to blame those failing to act.  By now, all this flaccid bloviating by the III%’ers and similar ilk is just empty posturing, young punks full of impotent bravado ( I was one in my twenties, so I certainly know the type ).  I can’t stand reading them, but I also try to forgive them their lack of knowledge. 

*

You are probably thinking this might be a backdoor tirade against Old Humpers sucking down my Social Security while playing golf in Arizona, sucking down the water table so as to create millions of refugees that will descend upon my locale at the first widespread hint of Gore Warming ( of course, the first hints are already here as the southwest goes into severe 1,000 year drought and the east coast sees the shutdown of the Gulf Stream, but until the last drop is wrung put of the wells all these idiots living there will think all is okay ) but once again I am feeling magnanimous and so I salute all you crusty old bastards and say, Have One On Me!  A toast to suckling on the federal teat, and screw everyone else after it goes dry.  As much as I rail against injustice, real life tells me it is better to be a dingus than to be dinner.  I have no right to judge those eating better than me, just because I’m in a position of weakness.  My own fault.

*

No, my point here is that none of us are any better than another.  We ALL value Get’en Paid over freedom.  And it wasn’t a bad deal.  We gave them control in exchange for a paycheck ( which won’t even last a century-so quick has the oil spigot gone from a gusher to a drip irrigation system ).  The problem is that, now we have no freedoms AND we have no paychecks.  And those that still do are dumb asses if they think it will last much longer ( and, really, what are you hanging on to?  Half your pay is to a mortgage, the other half to debt, mandatory medical insurance and food.  If you can afford to throw in cable, you’ve joined the middle class.  Gee, I wonder why I didn’t sell my soul and get an ulcer for $30k a year.  I have more disposable income living the way I do and earning under $8k a year [ next year-this year I earned over ten and it is seriously chapping my ass I’m on the hook for another 10% gross in the medical penalty because I’ll be going over by just a few hundred bucks ]).

*

So ignore all those jag-bags trying to sell snake oil on the Internet.  Ah, the Web.  Can’t get a real job fixing cars or chopping wood?  Pretend to be a survival expert and sell Fear Porn mixed with Hopium ( credit to the Survival Acres guy-I think-for that one ).  Your Vote Counts!  See Trump Run!  At least with Zines, you had to front printing costs and stamps to get your viewpoints out there.  You were still full of crap, but at least with a Cost Of Entry, you had to be dedicated in your opinion.  You certainly were not out for a buck because just like with New York City publishing, for every Stephen King there are a thousand, if not ten thousand, starving artists who pretty much had to write for nearly free.  One or two amateur publishers made it big and the rest paid to publish until they burned out or ran out of stamps.  With the Internet, anyone who can pick up a Wi-Fi signal parked outside of McDonalds ( who, by the way, are committed to replacing all cashiers with automated systems.  If you eat there, you don’t care, because nothing tastes like their fries or McRib.  If you used to work there, after this, consider yourself lucky ) can try to cheat, swindle and con the rubes out of a few bucks.

*

Those are the paychecks we are reduced to trying to earn.  Getting our fellow preppers to support our attempts at living in a northern state with zero jobs outside the big cities.  You don’t think this isn’t a Really Big Neon Flashing Sign Pointing To Massive Employment Contraction?  We sooth our fears by calling it “ new opportunities for entrepreneurship” or similar claptrap, all the while ignoring the fundamental truth that, as that Jew Baiter Ford pointed out, without a living wage your workers can’t buy the product you sell.  If we all are unemployed trying to wring a buck out of the Internet, who has the money to buy our useless ill considered products?  You can’t embrace the loss of freedom we saw a century ago, so I suppose there is no chance you’ll consider your future as an employee.

  1. I hear that you can show a late notice for your power bill and they waive the 10 percent penalties. Not actually cut off just late. Not sure if this is true or not.

    1. Sorry, no idea what you are referencing.

    2. I'm pretty sure he is referring to the ACA penalty, but I don't think he is correct. At minimum they are probably going to want to see a shutoff notice, and you will only get the penalty waived for the month of the notice and the months before and after. However, you should consult a tax professional on your own situation; you cannot rely on this advice to avoid tax penalties (Circular 230 Notice).

  2. I recall some years back, the Disney channel was airing an Australian TV series by the name of Spellbinder. In an alternate universe of then present day Australia, there was an advanced civilization ran by a group of people referred to as Spellbinders. At some point there was a collapse, and the result was the surviving masses living on the fringes of society in a manner similar to living in a medieval village, while the elites lived as royalty, and still had access to all of the technology. Interestingly, they had little to no knowledge of how it actually worked, but were able to operate it.

    That's kind of how I see it happening. Hopefully, for the surviving masses, the elites will have access to the defensive weapons enough to hold off a foreign invasion, yet will lack the power to be able to dominate over the surviving stragglers. I know that's asking for a lot, but that's probably the best possible outcome anyone can hope for in such a situation.

    1. Hell, how many of us have any idea how most of our stuff works? It is explained, we nod, we still have little idea.

    2. That's true James. Some people, such as myself try to have a general understanding of how the tech that we operate works. I do have a fairly good understanding of how an internal combustion engine works. I also pretty much understand how computers work, missing a few details I'm sure. But there are people out there (Probably most these days) that are the equivalent of a Chimpanzee trained to operate a motor vehicle, and haven't the slightest clue about how it works.

      The thing is, even if you completely understand how such technology works, good luck recreating it in a post modern industrialist civilization. For example, how on Earth are you going to make a microchip from scratch while living in the woods?

    3. This whole town is overrun all day long by driving chimps. When I moved here there was no traffic. Bastard scumbag whores.

    4. Micro chip from scratch? no way jose! Indoor plumbing? Sure a faucet and a crapper can be done with just about anything. Computers used to be vacuum tubes before transistors, and one was even designed to be mostly mechanical (the babbage engine) - you might be able to make that sort of thing from scratch living in the woods, but it will be very slow to play your computer games on...
      Internal combustion engines running on rare fuel will be used in rare and specific circumstances, same with electricity. It isnt hard to run wires, it will just get more and more expensive to do so vs average ability to procure the wires...

    5. No computer games!? The humanity!

    6. PS2 and a low-current flat panel is the main reason for a small inverter/battery/solar panel system. PlayStation Portable with screen, if you are "loaded". LED lighting and flashlight charging? Ptthsst. Namco Museum, Williams Greatest Hits, Atari!

  3. Referencing the obamacare penalty, I understand a couple of late notice letters can get get it waived. You don't have to let the utility cut you off just pay it late to get the warning letters. If your credit is already damaged or you don't give a crap this can save some bucks.
    BTW your hairs are perfect.....

    1. Okay, got it. Sorry, the 10% reference threw me off. I read the comment a third time and it clicked that it is now a penalty of X OR 10%. Before I was just looking at the X amount I owed.

    2. Jim,
      I have a letter from the VA excusing me from any/all penalties related to ACA/ObamaCare. Betcha you qualify for this, since you were active duty and are relatively poor.

    3. I wouldn't feel right using that overwhelmed system when the actual wounded need it.

    4. I stay as far from the VA medical providers as possible, but getting "enrolled" costs nothing and may provide some positive tax/employment consequences. They can do a battery of medical tests during a checkup (and will suggest more vaccines -Nooooo! thank you) that might not be available from whatever plan you have now.

      The VA is not overwhelmed by people like us, middle-aged not-even-smart-enough-to-get-0%-disabled vet's. The Obamacare exemption is going to be worth thousands per year in payments (not required to be made) to current/future employer and will make good resume fodder.

    5. Well, I kind of look at it as a limited budget and if I spend X amount of it, there is X less left for a real vet.

  4. “Wrapping a chicken”


    Hey, that's very similar to Bill Clinton's campaign slogan:

    “From a chicken in every pot, to a chicken smoking pot”. :D

    Ole Bill had his pecker in a lot of places, but never in that nasty Dyke that he was married to it seemed, not that you could hardly blame him there. Though “she” might have had hers in him :D Political marriages sound like a real pain in the ass ;)

    In other related news, Trump met with the Washington dude (The one that invented this here internet that allows me to talk to ya'll ;) ) that rode the short bus to school :D

  5. I hope that book is good 'cause I ordered it even after reading your "Get out of debt" post

    Looking forward to reading it

    1. Is getting in debt buying books a bad thing:) I'm kidding. Kind of.

    2. I'm really enjoying it. The start was a bit so-so. I hate the feminist character but I'm enjoying the women encountering the reality that men and women ARE different. To be fair the characters identify very quickly with reality.

      The authors focus on the issue of going to the loo is both, worrying and interesting. It's not something that other doomsday books (that I've read) do any more than touch on (Rawles Patriots from memory uses paper from phone books - I can't see that as being viable)

      All in all, I'm glad I bought it and I hope that you get a kick back from my purchase

    3. The beginning got me hooked into buying it ( it is a pain in the ass to read the "look inside" feature as you wade through copyright pages, dedications, etc., but it is a nice supplement to the comments to see if it is worthy ). It amazes me when others speak of a "small" commission from Amazon. It is enough for my writing income, far better than ad sales ( 10x )and I'm glad to have it. So, thanks for your contribution.

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.
