sliders


SLIDERS

No, today we are not talking about some cheesy 90’s sci-fi show about sliding along the space-time continuum, which, okay, honestly, I did rather enjoy tremendously when it first came out but it seems like whenever I come across an episode recently such as on cable ( in the short period of time I watched it moving back into town, before I talked the New Old Lady into canceling commercial laden DirectTV and just getting Netflix and saving $50 a month ) it didn’t seem to jibe with my memories of the show-perhaps I was watching the ones which were aired after the show “jumped the shark” ( a term taken from the Happy Days episode when Fonzi jumped a pool with a shark in it on his motorcycle, the first gimmick used in a desperate attempt to revive slumping ratings and the point the show really went downhill in quality ).  I wouldn’t doubt it, the foul bastards experiencing orgasmic joy whenever they can cheat anyone, and exponentially increasing that feeling whenever they know I personally am being violated.

*

Speaking of which, and I’ll spare all of you too much of a detailed repeat of my recent years long shoe shopping angst and just quickly say ( for the benefit of any new reader ) that nobody, and I mean almost nobody, seems to want to put out a shoe that lasts any period of time-not within any affordable parameter.   Yes, I know a $250 boot that lasts five years is far better than a $25 one that lasts five months-but the trick is knowing which brand to trust, not knowing which has “gone Maytag” on us ( suddenly substituting cheap quality on a once trusted brand ).  It really does seem that shoe companies feel one of two ways.  They enjoy humping me, personally, or they feel justified jacking the crap out of the price of their shoes if they are quality made ( what?  I mean, seriously, there are no more cows around since Texas lost the use of the Aquifer?  Leather is THAT expensive?  I think not, great snot ).  I don’t know about you, sitting in your concrete bunker atop a mountain fondling your freeze dried Yak testicle dinner and one of many HK-91‘s, but I can’t afford to stockpile shoes for post-apocalypse at the new prices.  You might as well expect me to be able to afford health insurance ( speaking of which, did you hear about the few states still offering “affordable” entry level plans-one of the chief selling points convincing the public they weren’t actually getting humped-planning on raising the minimum pricing 20 to 30%?  Friggin priceless!  Suck it, Democrats and Demopublicans ).

*

I probably shouldn’t worry, as I have at least a dozen pair of  boots made way back in the day before the new non-quality issue came along, but it is in my nature to worry and constantly reevaluate how many of everything I actually need ( the bar keeps getting raised on just about everything except wheat and ammo.  Mostly because those two items got priority for ten years and since then I’ve concentrated on everything else.  Which is a much longer list than I had anticipated ).  To me, even though cobblers will reintroduce themselves quick enough, I simply don’t have enough shoes.  Even though I rationally tell myself otherwise, I can’t stop the neurotic shopping.  So, how can I apply a frugal priority to my post-apocalyptic footwear stash?  I modernize the standard survivalist advice on making tire sandals.  Which, okay, is good enough advice as far as it goes.  It isn’t all too difficult to figure out how to do it, even if you forget to download an article on it or lose your paper printout.  It is one of those handy skills to have.  However, I’d like an intermediate product I can utilize prior to resorting to making my own ( and if you can’t afford it, no big deal-there aren’t all that many uses for tires that they should be in huge demand.  Growing potatoes and underground houses come to mind, but that isn’t a universal.  Perhaps shoring up earth walls to absorb cannon fire?  Regardless, there should be enough tires around cheap enough come the time.  This advice can be filed under “nice if you have the spare coin” ).

*

Family Dollar stores sell two types of men’s sandals, both at $6 a pair.  Clogs, or Soccer Slides ( hence the article title ).  Clogs are like the “Crocs”, and sliders are an improvement on flip-flops ( which, despite the cheaper price, I advise against strongly unless you live in a year round mild climate-otherwise you want socks along with your footwear ).  Instead of the toes holding the sandal in place-making sock wearing close to impossible-the flat piece has a bar of “rubber” going across the middle of your upper foot.  Thus, you “slide” the foot in to wear.   My last pair of Slides lasted several years of regular use-except during the three winter months-and I just now put a few drops of Shoe Goo on them and expect them to last several more.  Now, of course there are caveats.  Sandals are NOT the same as boots or shoes.  I completely understand that, and I urge you to remember it also.  I’m NOT advocating completely eliminating shoes and wearing sandals- I’m saying that wearing sandals at every conceivable opportunity to prolong the life of shoes will work out quite nicely.

*

Also, be aware that Family Dollar likes to play a little game of Bait And Switch.  They offer a vast improvement over Wal-Mart, get you hooked, then raise the price or decrease quality.  I put up with this because even then, they are better than Wally ( per square foot, 2-ply toilet paper at Family in a four roll pack is cheaper than Wally with its 12 pack.  Also, wooden matches, 500 count at under $2, is far superior in quality to the crap recycled paper hard to ignite paper matches both Wally and Kroger push ), but just beware of this tendency.  The Sliders I buy today may not be the same as the ones I’m raving about.  Yet, even so, they should still provide a good return on your money.  If you go with the Clogs, the top plastic seems a bit thin, but they are more comfortable and leave more room for sock wearing.  The Sliders seem better built, except for a tighter fit, but make sure to stock the Shoe Goo.  But I’d only recommend them for summer wear-the Clogs seem to win out in the pros and cons.  $6 seems to be a fair amount to pay for stockpiling footwear.

yes but


YES, BUT
*
note: the movie "The 5th Wave" is at Redbox.  Certainly not a great post-apoc film.  Sanitized Kiddie Lite Apocalypse.  As well as a teenage chick flik.  Many times during the film you will find yourself yelling at the screen with the proper, corrected course of action.  But, with lowered expectations, it can be an enjoyable, semi-post-apocalypse movie.  Far better than the befouled Hunger Games.
*
I’m fixin to continue on in the Civil war 2 article series, or at least I hope.  After probably too long rehashing the familiar I’m at last attempting to introduce less repeated topics.  I don’t know how much in the way of new ideas I’ll be introducing, whose lack thereof would be the only way I’d shorten the published material.  For now, a break from that, with this.

*

Back in the day, pre-New Old Lady, the in-laws sucked rabid honey badger balls.  Among other names, the step-daughter was known as “Yea, But”.  This was in honor of a half a lifetime of coming up with one excuse for another for every failing she possessed ( “can I borrow money, I promise I’ll pay you back”, “Oooh, about that money, see, let me tell you a story” ad infinitum ).  I used to call survivalists that had all the excuses in the world for not doing anything that hurt but was necessary “Yea But Survivalists”.  However, along with my hair growing to an ever greater sheen, my thinking has also progressed.  I no longer hold most people truly responsible for acting like dumb asses ( and, no, Virginia, I don’t believe I’m superior to other people-I’m as retarded as the next guy, the only difference being I know it ).  People are hard wired in their behavior in oh so many ways, but of concern to us today is the propensity to always shift as in a compass needle to north to whatever reinforces their primary directives ( I know there is a term for it, but I really have a hard time remembering them so prefer analogies or folksy descriptions to professional labels, at least in this case ).

*

You either view life as an optimist or a pessimist.  You cannot change that orientation through wishful thinking ( like most other mindsets and emotions, only pain truly changes your views ), such as chanting Business Guru slogans, or by spousal nagging ( I’m not sure if Pavlovian positive reinforcement through sexual favors would change you, or even negative ones.  Emotional pain is enough to rewire your thinking, but most of most of our lives the only sexual signals we receive were negative anyway, so that might be a wash ).  This seems to be especially noticeable in survivalists, or at least it does to me since I’ve been overanalyzing those involved in that field for decades.  We, writers and commentators, waste almost all of our time arguing over doctrine, and it is indeed a complete waste of time.

*

Almost all of what we are doing is, rather than arguing AGAINST the other persons view, is arguing FOR our own prejudices.  We all think we are right and hold the correct view.  None of us stop and think why that view is held as sacrosanct and inviolate.  Without getting into a whole can of worms with psychology and such and what-not, one aspect of our preconceived notions has to do with how we view the universe.  Are unicorns real, with their glittery sweet smelling farts?  Or is the world a giant suck-fest out to get you for no other reason than you exist?  If I am an eternal optimist, nothing can change my mind that regardless of events happy conclusions are foregone.  Despite the odds and the condition we find ourselves in, Good Crap Happens.  If I am a pessimist, no one can convince me that I won’t be brutally dry humped, tortured and thrown in the stewpot come the apocalypse.  Bad Crap Happens. 

*

And it doesn’t matter how intelligent or stupid either side of the argument is.  You can’t convince someone, regardless of the facts or arguments or persuasive language, that the sun is bright and happy if they are living under a cloud.  You can’t “prove” that it is a crappy day to someone high on life.  I hope all this seems pretty self-evident.  As I am by nature pessimistic, all it took for me to forever avoid crowds was reading about the Who concert in the 70’s where a stampede crushed and killed several people.  Using a chainsaw once and scaring the crap out of myself, and reading the statistics on accidents using them reinforcing that fear, which simply fit in with my worrisome fretful nature.  When I had a couple of jams with my M-16, which was constantly in a pristine Basic Training state of cleanliness, obviously I would forever after assume it would continue to do so and avoid it like the plague.  When one wife after another screwed me, why should I assume that wasn’t the normal state of affairs?  Even after finally being proven wrong, my attitude is merely one of appreciating a freak accident, along with a glumness that I waited nearly until the end of my life to experience The Exception That Proves The Rule. 

*

Nobody is going to say anything that changes my basic nature of fear and loathing.  Everything I point to as proof of collapse is being forced through my paradigm, and even knowing this I can’t change my orientation.  And when I tell you “if I’m wrong you are pleasantly surprised but if I’m right you are insured against the worst”, you respond as is your nature.  “Oh, he’s so full of crap-we’ll get through this some how.  I just need a bit of a cushion against unemployment or natural disaster.  And, you‘ll have to pry my chainsaw from my cold dead fingers.”  Or, “Good Christ On A Cracker, I KNEW the friggin sky was falling.  Full prepping ahead.  Way to go, Lord Bison!”.  I think we evolved from something that hit its head one too many times.

civil war II part 6


CIVIL WAR 2 part 6

Crime has been part of the American experience since aforementioned Peak Per Capita Energy and certainly even before that.  The complete morons who dwell in those areas where it is illegal to defend yourself ( and where Angry Black Men are given carte blanc to attack anyone who is White, or in the case of Florida anyone who is White-ish ) have pathetically encased themselves in Defense Light tactics such as living in better neighborhoods and driving newer vehicles which have a much better chance of not breaking down anywhere near the Bad Part Of Town.  This is great, and everyone should be doing something just like this, but when you live cheek and jowl close to the ghetto you will still get residual effects from those that prey upon the working class.  So what are we paying taxes for, if all that welfare isn’t stopping crime?  Well, you aren’t seeing open rebellion, are you?  That is your tax dollars at work.  Making drugs illegal isn’t just about centralized control and a boost to the police state, all nice bonuses to our rulers that they are, but also at its heart racial control ( don’t think that a Black half breed President makes a bit of difference, or his crime tolerant policy which is merely more Divide And Conquer.  His controllers are not Black ). 

*

Banning Saturday Night Specials was all about ratcheting up the cost of armaments to the city poor ( the rural poor just bought a cheap Sears & Roebuck break-open shotgun ), because not only do armed city folk tend to concentrate firepower near the centers of power, they also tend to be Black.  And no self-respecting White politician is going to hand a Black mob that metaphorical lynch rope ( neither are Black politicians who are All About The Benjamin’s and besides sputtering violently never bite the hand that pays them ).  And banning drugs helps keep most violent Black males incarcerated.  Black males, predictably, turn to dealing drugs when there are no jobs available ( there being no jobs because few businesses wish to invest money in a building and equipment which will promptly be burned down in the next protest-nor will they receive fire insurance for the same reason.  Which Blacks tend to do to protest there being no jobs, among many other reasons.  A nice Catch-22.  Blacks might think they are rebels and Super Killer Ninja Outlaws, but they are indeed playing the role that was designed for them.  No jobs leads to crime which leads to more police which leads to combating the only economic activity making them money which leads to more crime which justifies even more crime fighting and harsher sentences for Blacks ).

*

The cycle of criminal business and widespread prison terms ( and returning prisoners who cannot get hired anywhere due to their record prompting them to return to crime ) guarantees that crime is here to stay and to get worse.  Crime will get much worse, in step with our economic contraction.  Even if drugs were to be legalized ( the relaxing of marijuana prohibition, while certainly capable of reversing course with a new administration, for now merely frees up resources for combating the harder drugs-I for one don’t see it as the camels nose under the tent ), which I can’t see being advantageous for the Powers That Be, without jobs there will be crime.  And if there can be no other outcome with our economic collapse than far higher unemployment, it follows that crime will also become much worse ( if nothing else, newly unemployed newly arrived criminals will be battling the existing organizations for far higher body counts and gunfire exchange ).

*

So why are you living right next to these Crime Zones?  Would you want to live right on the other side of the Mexican border, with the constant paramilitary combat between gangs and the Federales?  Of course not, right?  So why are you living in that large urban area, with its built-in paramilitary force growing in size as the economy contracts?  The inevitable direction is towards larger and more violent behavior.  You think living in an un-gated ( or even a gated one-any serious force could breech the nearly non-existent defenses with a third grade grasp on strategy ) suburban development will save you?  Do you REALLY think your expensive pimped out ride will save you?  American’s place way too much supernatural importance in their automobiles, their talismans receiving far higher conceived abilities than are warranted.  It is sheet metal and glass, with a 125 year old technology propelling it, dude.  If you act like a five year old thinking a fort made of chairs and bed sheets keeps away the boogeyman, you will be in for an unpleasant surprise.

*

Remember, crime breeds criminals and criminals make very good combatants.  Not soldiers, reliant upon a nation states logistics, but warriors only reliant on their tribe.  Care to guess which will prevail in our decentralizing future?  More next time.

civil war II part 5


CIVIL WAR 2 part 5

For our purposes here, we’ll call the economic collapse as occurring once necessities are no longer available.  Today’s “Greater Depression” is about as tragic as running out of scones during tea time, compared as to what is coming.  Right now, all the crying and gnashing of teeth and caterwauling and overly dramatic noise is about folks losing their luxuries.  And while I can certainly relate, because I myself enjoy meat at every dinner and books delivered from Amazon and other niceties, losing the finer things in life only sucks because you don’t know any better.  Being an imperial citizen does come with a nicely crafted glittery blinder one is allowed to wear throughout life, while empire lasts.  We have zero idea how to live without the luxuries we regard as birthrights.  Look at how vicious and violent an ex-wife gets during a divorce.  She certainly probably loved you at one point, but you are threatening to take away what she views as bare necessities and as such she feels completely vindicated in taking the means to that end, by hook or by crook.  And she has ZERO thought to how you are going to survive.  That, in a nutshell, is how EVERYONE is going to be eyeballing you once the collapse occurs.  As time goes on, they will be fighting for less and less luxuries ( as we are all doing now, and have been doing for decades ) mostly non-violently through proxies such as ballet boxes, and more and more for necessities. 

*

As a society, we have been fracturing because the rewards for being docile imperial subjects have been shrinking for decades now.  Globally, 1979 was the year that per capita energy use peaked.  It has been shrinking ever since.  And for decades now, the US has seen all its citizens fighting over a shrinking energy pie.  When segments fight over energy, things get and stay ugly.  Which is why young hates old and old hates young and males and females are in conflict, and etcetera.  We THINK that is bad.  We despair over increasing medical or college or automobile or housing costs.  But that is a distraction.  The real anguish is coming with bare necessities in jeopardy.  Survivalists and prepper SHOULD know this, but most of the time they act as if they don’t.  They still live in the cities and drive cars and stay in debt ( I’m as guilty as any, and perhaps more so as I have the means of already escaping-it might just be remote junk land and a very spare income from writing, but it is an escape of sorts nonetheless- and I do not.  I throw around excuses thicker than hormones in an orgy-so this is definitely not a scolding to any of my minions but merely an observation in sadness.  You needn’t wonder how humans keep surviving this level of stupidity throughout our oh so many resource contraction crashes.  Like insects, we populate sufficiently to always see survivors ).

*

First off, your local government gets a lot nastier than previously.  Their survival is at stake and they could give two craps if you have anything left to live on after increased taxes.  If nothing else, remember the divorce analogy.  If you ever wonder what is going to happen, think 90% pay cut in a divorce and jail if you become homeless and jobless due to paying too much and having nothing left to survive on.  In a situation with not enough resources, we all become honey badgers.  Already, it isn’t too unusual to be paying the same or more in property taxes than the principal payment on a mortgage ( it already wasn’t unusual to be paying more in interest than principal ).  Despite caps on the percentage of tax that can be collected, by law, states and counties and cities already have easily bypassed such pesky roadblocks and are merrily collecting twice or three times the amount compared to just a few years ago.  And that was after ONE recession ( it really is a depression, granted, but due to the insane amount of government stimulus most businesses and local governments are still treating it as a one off event ).

*

Can you even begin to imagine what the response will be after a real fiscal emergency takes place?  Counties will be jacking up gasoline taxes dollars at a time rather than by dimes and property taxes will go up by half every year rather than every decade, and states will be increasing sales taxes at the same rate and adding food to the taxable amount, and that is just the beginning as they repeat what has historically already been done.  And don’t think you can vote against any of it, as that too has been historically defeated in numerous ways.  You think you are paying too much now, in light of your reduced work hours?  You ignorant slut, Jane!  And don’t expect that poverty will save you, either.  The poor are already paying a much higher percentage of their income, in relatively better times.  How many of us can live on $10, 001.00 a year, in our present location?  Yet, if you make that amount, your taxes have already been doubled, with Obammy’s “health tax”.  And you don’t think that won’t be ratcheted down or in some way be made worse? 

*

When police eagerly embraced Asset Forfeiture in the 1990’s on ( some locations started a decade prior to that ), they were in the last of the good times economically.  How bad do you think that will become in the near future?  Expect laws to be changed to allow over equipped with military weapons and under equipped with a decent attitude SWAT teams to be busting down doors very soon after taxes go unpaid.  You don’t think that won’t merge with the newly created rubber stamped Eminent Domain laws?  Even if you are still barely paying taxes, expect your city to kick you out with delayed compensation if any to try all their desperate measures to enhance revenue.  Remember, you are poor and broke but if there is ANY way to squeeze ANYTHING from you, the government will be willing to try.  That this will quickly result in a revolt or rebellion or civil unrest will matter none at all to them.  It might actually be either embraced or even manipulated into being, to give them the appearance of upholding the law and peace by employing even more blatant violence against all.

More next article.

civil war II part 4


CIVIL WAR 2 part 4

The end of cheap and abundant oil, already in the rearview mirror ( the current low price and high supply is from the global economic crash that saw low manufacture demand due to unemployment and lack of credit-as soon as the marginal drillers and shippers go out of business due to low price, higher prices and lack of supply will return ), is a problem not because we don’t have enough to survive on.  We have more than enough ( today’s 80 million barrels a day is about in line with the 20 being used seventy or eighty years ago, when adjusted for population ) per se.  Nobody will be dying from the cold or heat from lack of oil, but due to lack of money to get oil ( plus the unequal distribution ).  Our economic system is imploding, however, and that is due to nothing more than the decrease in toto or a decrease in the in the increase in the oil supply ( if you subtract Fake Oil from conventional petroleum, by a substantial amount-remember, the global economy led by the US was based on an increase in the oil supply every year.  We no longer have that ). 

*

Without a functioning economic system, bad things start to happen.  Like global trade becoming dysfunctional ( the globe starting to splinter into regional trading blocks with incompatible monetary standards ).  Global empire and trade isn’t just about keeping shipping safe from pirates ( a job we pretty much suck at anymore, as a cursory look at Somalia might illustrate.  How embarrassing is it when a bunch of Skinny’s not only force you out of a war, refuse to die satisfactorily from our Super Spaceship Guns ammunition, and then tell our navy to suck monkey balls? ) but also about standardizing financing and payments to facilitate trade.  And trade isn’t just about being able to buy affordable plastic baubles at the dollar store.  It is also about being able to buy 60-70% of our oil.  Which we wouldn’t even need if we hadn’t been such idiots with our domestic supply.  What we pump now is the same amount China used to build a global manufacturing empire with-we could have “been a contender” even today, but following true Angry Chimp programming, we squandered and wasted.  Wasting oil as if it would last forever allowed us to overpopulate, centralize farms, destroy our soil, inflate taxes and regulations, ruin mass transportation, grow government, being indebted to a point miraculously far past bankruptcy, enable our central bank to own the whole country and a whole bunch of other stuff too depressing to even think about now.

*

Every single thing that we do, that we take for granted, that is institutionalized and hence refuses to change since our elites profit off of it, it all rests on very affordable and very available oil.  Which increases in supply every year.  Which we no longer have.  This is pretty basic Class 101 stuff, people.  It is so far from Rocket Science that the cross eyed retard playing a banjo in Georgia could grasp it.  I don’t want to point any fingers and accuse anyone of being dumber than a box of pointy rocks, but if I have to I will.  Actually, I won’t.  Call me Honey Badger.  If you want to die being an optimist that is your right and privilege.  I shouldn’t defecate on your parade.  Never mind what I just said ( and don‘t get pissy-I‘m not insulting anyone by claiming you are stupid.  The banjo player was a joke, people.  Jeez, get a sense of humor!  You can be as intelligent as they come, and if you are an optimist you are incapable of seeing bad things coming, regardless of the facts.  Facts are never facts, but conclusions filtered through our personal paradigm.  ALL of us, every last swinging cheese dingus, gathers evidence by prejudice ).  For the rest of you,  collapse at some level is baked into the cake and already started, the timing and severity the only question.  Also questionable are details.  It is easy to take the last decade and extrapolate.  Or take historical examples and duplicate.  We don’t really have much better tools, although most of them are made in China from pot metal and are rather dull.  I’ll leave global verses imperial collapse pretty much alone.  What concerns us is US ( of course China will arm and fund guerilla groups and invade select areas to exploit.  Wouldn’t you if placed in their sandals? But that comes later, and I’ll go out on a limb here and speculate overthrowing them will be as successful as the Guerilla operation the Confederates waged after the Civil War.  Not to disparage Southerners.  If they couldn’t continue fighting Yankees with their infrastructure destroyed, and they were some tough SOB’s, today’s pussy militia stand zero chance ).  If I haven’t convinced you we will see an economic collapse by now, it ain’t going to happen.  I’ll just move into the action following such ( collapse being defined as loss of control and governance.  Our “collapse” so far has just been the set-up for that ).  More tomorrow.

civil war II part 3


CIVIL WAR 2 part 3

Most agitators focus their fury on FDR’s New Deal turning the US into a socialist welfare state.  What they refuse to acknowledge, mainly from having drunk the Kool-Aid propaganda the elites funded with “free market” organizations ( don’t lash out at the messenger-at one time I was guzzling that sugary drink by the gallon ), was that most of the changes strengthened the central government and the corporations and the central bankers.  If anything was left over, it was nothing short of a bribe to keep the masses from revolting from hunger.  What to you is “welfare scum, lazy humpers” is to me exploited poor without job prospects ( those jobs not outsourced overseas are few in number and used as a control mechanism ) who either have no choice in accepting entitlements ( ghetto Blacks and rural mobile home dwellers truly work in a No Job Zone-Rush Limbaugh Clones who bleat about them becoming small business owners conveniently forget about the need for disposable income from a customer base.  They also pretty up the barriers to entry erected by big business and big government ), or refuse to play the rich mans games as they see through the BS a lot better than most.  Rich apologists are the perfect cover for the rich stripping the assets of our empire before retirement.

*

The point is, empire bought domestic consent with bribes.  Not that they WANTED to, you understand.  Unions were discouraged with a suitable level of force from squad automatic weapon armed Nation Guard or Pinkerton forces ( or city police ).  Even peaceful dissent was greeted with torches ( “accidentally” burning down a tent city of peacefully demonstrating ex-military needing their bonuses early due to the Depression.  Which, let’s be realistic, wasn’t an unreasonable demand since the government drafted them, then caused the economic collapse to herd all the independent banks under the umbrella of the Federal Reserve [ plus, steal all the gold with 40% devalued Greenbacks ].  Burning civilians to death to keep order goes back prior to Waco ).  The government didn’t have any problem using force to get its will mindlessly obeyed.  So you can bet your last un-backed fiat paper currency note that to start handing out government welfare, the government had to have been forced to.  Only imminent revolt would have lit a fire under their asses.  FDR did NOT turn this country socialist out of some ideological aberration, thank you very much idiot savant Glen Beck, but to keep order. 

*

Do you think the GI Bill and the Cold War was a generous thank you card, and an accident, respectively?  Free college was both a gift to corporations and a bribe to pacify legions of combat trained and mostly well armed citizens and the war with the Soviets was a means to keep wartime levels of factory production.  Jobs only materialized with war material ( and the draft, instituted a year and half or so prior to Pearl Harbor, and continued after peace was declared ) being vomited forth.  World War One saw a huge subsidy to farmers in the form of food to our allies, so it was no great stretch of the imagination to realize America joining the war again would put everyone back to work after twelve years of the Great Depression.  Besides the draft, public works projects were seemingly planed very early to be turned towards wartime needs.  Anyone who thinks we were accidentally attacked and surprised by it has their head so far up their ass that they should either go work in Washington DC or for a corporate CEO.

*

Alas, as with all bribes, such as the Romans paying the barbarians to NOT attack the imperial city, you need a wealth surplus to keep the growing legions of discontents from bestirring themselves from the recliner in front of the 60” television watching Judge Judy and American Idol ( or attacking their fellow barbarians for entertaining fun and profit and supple buxomly babes as consolation prizes ).  When the spigot of surplus energy slows to a trickle and the wealth disappears into the elites Bug Out Bag, the bribes start to get much harder to hand out.  This is the infamous “riots start when the welfare checks stop”.  But “welfare checks” brings to mind lazy ghetto dwellers pissed at the world when the Food Stamps fail to cover a bucket of KFC and a pint of Mad Dog ( Good Christ On A Pogo Stick!  Have you seen what they want for a bucket of fried chicken?  BBQ‘ing a few steaks would be cheaper ).  Bad news, Sparky, most of the population is being bribed by welfare.  If it were just recently incarcerated Blacks and their packs of bastards bred by Big Mamma ( or the trailer park equivalent for Rednecks ), the bill could easily be covered.  Usually, the government civil servants and their assorted corporate parasites actually see more money from welfare than the actual recipients.  No reason to stop that gravy train.  But when nearly the whole economy is propped up by government spending, you have another whole ball game going on.  More next article.

civil war II part 2


CIVIL WAR II part 2

In part one I pretty much just jumped into the civil war without much prelude, assuming one can see the same future as myself.  I guess that was a bit silly of me, since most folks future involves pretty much every fantasy stopping just short of Jetson’s flying cars and orbital cities tethered to something or other ( I’m not sure what the cartoon was implying-not that you care too much at seven years old.  Were the stand alone platforms a way to ease congestion on the surface?  Was this even Earth?  Was it another planet too hostile to live on? ).  We have everything from slow easy transactions into a happy tree-hugging permaculture to a quick rebound to a resource rich Republic after all the politicians and UN Blue Helmets and gangs of welfare scum are all resolutely decimated in a hail of semi-automatic gunfire.  Most likely our future ( or at least yours-I might be dead at the first sign of trouble.  Our clan doesn’t have too many genetic abnormalities but we do tend to work ourselves into an early grave, the heart performing its Yeoman service before crapping out from exhaustion.  My grandfathers followed this patter, with my father interrupting the cycle with non-manual labor, and I picked it back up ) is going to be a compilation of every worst case scenario you can fit into a play list of an Apocalypse. 

*

We’ll start with an economic collapse, sprinkled with a bit of Gore Warming which will exasperate the problem with persistent draught alternated with fires and floods which will cause our already denuded soil to blow chunks at organics since the oil supply will be contracting ( what caused the economic contraction to begin with ) and less petroleum inputs will be available for farming ( we are already well into our “don’t worry about it for twenty years” future of substituting real petroleum for Fake Fuels such as fracking oil and tar sand and extra deep sea wells.  With Dakota drying up and shutting down and the annual 10-15% collapse of Mexican oil and the economic collapse of South America and the Canadian fields shuttered by too low prices, plus our own economic collapse as we are already into 2008 Redux causing our own oil companies to stop exploring, AND the unraveling of the PetroDollar-don’t think of THAT in any future sense as it is already ongoing-in a seeming sea of available oil we are going to see real shortages.  Just because Peak Oil didn’t unfold as prophesized doesn’t mean it isn’t suckling at the bloody rabid monkey rectum ).  On top of that throw in Empire Unraveling.

*

American oil did allow for American Empire.  We picked on the small kids in the gang first, to achieve Pacific islands leading up to a naval advantage.  It was little accident that FDR was chosen as Head Puppet, as he had a solid background in navy affairs-well, as good as you are going to get for an East Coast Blue Blood Inbred Yankee Scumbag.  Once our water power and coal fired industrial economy goosed with Federal money and free resources from the Southern colonies got a dose of unlimited nearly free  petroleum, we shot up the list of Biggest Swinging Dingus at the empire game ( Germany was doomed from the start in both world wars due to lack of oil.  Britain diverted a lot more resources towards controlling middle east oil than to the trenches, leaving her colonial troops and France to take the worst of things.  This control allowed her empire to survive her initial coal dependence, and her bankruptcy, to get through the Second World War, but in the end had to pretty much sign over everything to the US to survive past that.  In the end, domestic petroleum was needed, not imported.  Hold that thought ).

*

American Empire was composed of two parts.  Foreign nations played by our economic rules ( all those not in the Soviet Bloc.  It is my firm belief that we “leaked” the atomic secrets to Russia so as to continue the war by other means, keeping our war armaments in top shape ) which enriched the elite.  For instance, US farmers sold grain to villagers over sea’s so that dirt cheap commodities ( palm oil, coffee, cocoa, etc. ) could be grown instead of Little Brown People food.  Our farms sold our embarrassing surplus ( at the time, abundant fertile soil combined with mechanization yielded a cornucopia ) through the few grain giants which saw most of the profit rather than the independent farmer, and other corporations got near zero cost raw supplies.  The whole time, in exchange for a modest amount of taxpayer monies padding the bank accounts of Third World dictators, what money we did pay for those exports was given back as payments for loans for infrastructure developments in those very countries.  It was about as free of money as the Yankee industrialists got from the Reconstructed South, but on a non-soviet sphere global scale.

*

The second part was comprised of controlling the home population.  I’ll continue with that tomorrow.  Yes, this is going to be a long convoluted journey.  Because, sure, longer length writing does help solve my problem with coming up with article ideas ( the writing is easier than the research and the conception ) but mainly because if you don’t understand our system for what it was, you have no possibility of understanding the direction we are headed.  Hang in there with me.

civil war II


CIVIL WAR II
*
note: "The EROEI on Texas Spindletops was 100 to 1. The net energy produced from Canadian tar sands or Bakkan shale is less than you can get from green firewood, maybe 3 to 1. Oil rig count in the Bakkan as of this morning: zero. Lost investment exploring and drilling there? billions."

Back in the day, I believe about the time snipers were awarded brownie points for head shots to mothers holding infants while not harming the baby, and Girl Power was taking such a ferocious hold on this country that any religious sect even suspected of thinking about polygamy ( we’re strong and independent women and we don’t need no man!  Except perhaps as stud services but between milkings they were to be quarantined away from polite society ) was Public Enemy Number One and the FedGov was given the green light to incinerate the offspring of such adherents ( actually, this kind of just crept out of that dreaded smelly place of my subconscious and now I’m wondering if PC indoctrination was more responsible for Ruby Ridge and Waco than the growing police state was-after all, it isn’t like the cops were ever very Constitutional with war protestors or civil rights demonstrators.  It wasn’t like the National Guard wasn’t in the thick of things trying to suppress Union activity nearly a hundred years ago.  To argue the police state suddenly became a threat during Clinton or Shrub is a bit naïve.  Was it more the violent suppression of traditional gender roles?  Just a thought ), a book came out by the title Civil War II which postulated a coming race war in America.

*

It wasn’t a bad book.  It was far more realistic than most covering reality based futures rather than fantasy or wishful thinking that seems to be the norm.  Listen, people.  When you write a book, yes, the style and presentation must be entertaining.  But must the subject matter be dumbed down along with the presentation?  We are adults and can handle reality ( okay, well, maybe not.  The best attended blogs out there allow for a three hundred year slow collapse or a downturn with a quick recovery with a Republican petroleum renaissance, so perhaps reality isn’t on the menu for the New York style publishers.  But surely there is a market for adults?  Hello?  Anyone? ).  But from what I recall ( I haven’t re-read it and it has been around twenty years ) the premise seemed less than plausible.  Sure, races hate each other.  So do religions.  So do economic classes ( and now, genders ) and age groups.  When the collapse starts, economically, and you can bet your last Petro-Dollar that it will with the only question being the timing, while races will direct a special hatred at each other ( it cannot be any different with the history we all share ) you can count on having more than one group gunning for your white ass, not just Blacks ( again, and I get tired of repeating this but as everyone’s feelings seems to be permanently stuck on Super Sensitive and I never know when a real blogger will direct a new potential probationary loyal minion my way I need to be clear on this, until Blacks address me as a Northern European/American or a Celtic/American I won’t be calling them African Americans.  To me, Black carries zero insult, as I am White.  I can also be addressed as Honky Mo’ Fo’ or Cracker, if one wishes.  Even Casper is pretty funny.  I don’t approve of the N Bomb, not because it is expressly forbidden by the Fruitcake PC Crowd, but because it is a good way to get my ass kicked and I’m all about blending in.  Plus, if I’m going to insult you, I can do it with Two Bit words with profanity unnecessary and beneath my education ). 

*

The coming conflict won’t be about A Chance To Kill The Negros ( I don’t believe it would be prudent to waste ammunition for any reason other than self-defense ), or finally an excuse to Avenge Our Ancestors Cast In Chains ( because if you did that you’d have to start by going back to Africa and killing the Black Bastards that enslaved your ancestors and then sold them to the White boys showing up with empty ships ).  It will be about ANY and especially ALL groups fighting each other over dwindling resources and a return to tribalism.  Your race might fit in there somewhere but most likely not as often.  Not to say there won’t be rampaging Black mobs intent on killing Whitey for its own sake, or that lynch mobs won’t be reborn.  No, my point is merely that you can’t FOCUS on the coming race conflict when there will be oh so many more groups gunning for you.  Beware ALL threats, not just a superficial skin coloring.  God Golly, Grover, if you are White, both White AND Black federal agents will be sniping at you.  College students forming a mob of whitebread suburban Yuppies will kill your white ass ( of course, so will Black students-one of the stupidest moves I ever made was taking a wrong turn on my bicycle and passing through an all-Black college in broad daylight while living in Daytona Beach and I can still feel the hatred in all those that gazed upon me.  Come any conflict, they are an angry mob hating Whitey first and dedicated students and future middle class citizens second ).

*

Don’t discount racial hatred.  Given any government slippage of enforcement, you can bet Rednecks will be dedicated to clearing out any Blacks from their area of control ( along with a Free Fire Zone surrounding that ).  Just as Blacks will freely hunt down lone Whites and beat them to death if they have a chance to get away with it. The recent Get Out Of Jail Free card Obammy has given Blacks, in order that they might do exactly that, has lit a fire under Whites that will not be put out easily.  The Blacks feel they are entitled, and Whites want both revenge and an end to the fear.  The Blacks will then respond with outrage at the vigilantism and become more violent, ad infinitum.  Race conflict will be real indeed.  But the coming war will see race conflict as just one of many reasons to fight and kill.  More next article.
