I’m sure you would all prefer an article on the FAANG stocks and whether the markets will tank, but to be perfectly honest I frankly don’t know because I don’t care because the market has been manipulated my entire adult life and it took me some time to learn to let go of that worry.  The market is no longer the economy and nothing other than a reflection that the bankers are in charge of it.  Super Vampire Squid Goldman Saks could be shorting the stocks right now and manipulating the price down, perhaps even in collusion with SuckAssBurg and BezoBub.  You ain’t in the billionaire club, they are and you are mere cattle to them.  Nothing would truly shock or surprise me at this point, and in the big scheme it just doesn’t matter.
*
If you are not debt free, moved out of the worst population areas, in a home with low taxes and invested in precious metals, the economy is going to screw you.  We will ALL get screwed, civilization implosions don’t see many victims avoid their fate, but there will be those who can hold out longer in better shape.  And those that sucked the giant purple dildo of Undeserved Oil Wealth Unlimited.  Money for nothing and your chicks for free sounds like a great deal, not a problem, barely an inconvenience, until the true bill comes due.  You need the market and economy to keep chugging along to pay your mortgage and your pension and health care?  Good luck with that.
*
You can die before the day of reckoning, and then you will have won.  For the rest of us, get ready to lose.  Don’t want to be a loser but have few options?  Leaving the rat race seems like an impossible dream, but it really is easy peasy lemon squeezy.  All you need do is reprioritize.  What most folks do, and hence why they fail in this endeavor, is to value tangibles over intangibles.  Flip that, and you are free.  As simple as that.  Tattoo that backwards on your forehead and keep shaving every day and boom, bang, done.
*
I am NOT speaking of being anti-material per se.  And you need merely practice minimalism for a short time.  No one is saying “give up all your worldly possessions, carrying a lamp in search of an honest man ( or whatever Hippy Groovy claptrap you care to insert )”.  Man is a tool using animal and you need tools as well as enough money to function and enough investment to thrive beyond mere bodily function maintenance.  The problem is, most of us are using the wrong tools ( I’m near just as bad with this damn InterWeb publication-not that the old dead tree and Post Office paradigm was any more sustainable ).
*
All of our tools are made for the current Oil Age.  Our marriages are little more than Forever Roommates helping with the bills.  Our homes and shelters are nothing more than funding the least worst crime area protection force.  Our transportation is just bribing our masters for the low odds of keeping a job.  You don’t think so?  Ford used to not only be the best paying manufacturer, they had public transportation picking up their workers.  Now?  You get to have 25% of your lowered income go towards that.
*
The gerbil wheel has never looked prettier, all neon and LED flashing lights and glitter.  You are still on a perpetual work and debt wheel.  Yet nothing keeps you on it except your fondness of those flashing hypnotic lights.  To get slaves, you used to have to go to war and earn them the old blood and toil way.  Now, they swarm the slave owners plantation manor, fighting to get in the door and sign up for lifetime servitude.  And when you tell them that the energy running the plantation is running out, they will gang together and build up a mighty indignity and lash out at you for dipping your dingus in their punchbowl at their party.  You are mighty nerd boy, party pooper, the guy who can’t relax and enjoy himself.
*
All true, but that doesn’t change the facts.   This sucker is going down and only the timing is unknown.  Yet you still all want to stay in the first class stateroom rather than jump in the lifeboat early.  Which is fine.  I don’t judge.  If you want to go down with the ship, all well and good.  If you are old enough, just getting off enough magazines to take out enough of the humpers to satisfy the revenge for your lifetime’s worth of getting screwed is not the worst plan you could have.  And not everyone shares my doom and gloom. I don’t have to understand why, although it seems rather clear to me, but what ultimately matters is what helps you sleep at night.
*
But if you do in fact agree and want to jump ship now, as I said, this stuff ain’t rocket surgery.  You just need to liquidate.  Once you’ve made up your mind to no longer invest in the current paradigm, it is easy to sell off all the tools for that way of life.  Once you’ve made up your mind that the price you sell your house for isn’t based on what you paid for it but rather based on what you need to start over, and once you can actually see what a prison an automobile is, then you can sell close to everything and start over again.  Out of debt and fully invested and funded.
*
All you have to do is just make up your mind.  It is both the hardest thing to do, yet also the easiest.  No, Grasshopper, you’ll never be able to snatch that pebble out of my hand, and I’m not trying to be mystical or mysterious.  It is hard letting go of a lifetime of programming, yet once you do it is as natural and easy as you can imagine.  But it is all on you.  Idahoan Guru’s giving you a longer and longer shopping list of preps will not set you free.  Setting that list on fire just might, however.
Continued tomorrow.

  1. Following another of your excellent field reports, Jim. As an example of your theme, the more amounts of stuff one aquires throughout their life, and let pile up without purging leads to the following. They are a geezer with old, outdated, technologically inferior and excessive amounts of items. Then inventory control-accountability and maintenance serviceability becomes overwelming in their older ages. (Picture of a hoarder) Then the minion is a gear/junk rich geezer but poor in other areas, and not in a good strategic/tactical position. Then it is too late to adjust and change with the winds. Your emphasis on those mentioned important fundamentals are what makes your Blog reports superior to all the other idiots out there. Keep at it.

    1. Misery loves company. Tell all your friends about me and then they too can share in the misery of all the Truth preached here. Oh, and I'll keep at it all right. This is too much fun.

  2. I’m hoping that I hold out long enough to where my junk land places me at the status of the “land lord” of yesteryear, after the multitudes with properties having taxes higher than the cost of my land have long since moved into their cardboard boxes. Junk land isn’t perfect, as the possibility of property confiscation will exist at this point (as it indeed does now on some level). But it’s the closest that you can come to true property ownership at this point in time. My property taxes did go up around 20% this year. So from $15 to $18, so I’m still far from being in danger. They would have to go up considerably in my lifetime in order to place my property in danger of confiscation, and that’s not likely for my middle-aged self.

    I’m hoping to assume the role of the “Hugh Hefner” of the post apocalypse. My mansion might not look quite as nice, but even a 40’ travel trailer will look a sight better than the local overpass. And wheat beats a mud pie any day :D

    Hey, a guy can dream right :D

    1. A 40' trailer will indeed be a mansion, as most are far smaller :)

  3. Minion advice for others. Liquidating via yard sales, old print classifieds, word of mouth, are limited and slow results. I used craigslist to move items that although appear mediocre, they sold due to pricing at good deal standards and living in a city for population count possible customers. Three diverse items sold for $350 raising cash for unemployment. Later I used armslist to move two guns pulling in $1300 to help remain unemployed the rest of 2018. Think outside of the box, and spread ads and marketing as far and diverse as possible for bestest results. Raise cash via liquidating UN-USED assets instead of burning savings or donating plasma or prostituting ass to strangers for prepping gear. Good luck!

    1. Selling ass now equals spending more on Depends later.

    1. I can only imagine what people are posting, if a tolerant fellow such as yourself has to resort to deleting their comments.

      Delete
    2. They are generic comments, perhaps robot recons to see if I moderate? The problem is they are getting more life like. I used to be able ( and still do ) to delete prior to posting-now I'm not sure if they are minions or not and must post, then see if their response is legit or not. Hell, you almost sound like you might be an AI. Skynet clone, are you?

      Delete
    3. Nope. Elko minion here. Then again, there are those that believe that we are all an AI simulation, so who knows? Maybe I am and don’t realize it :D

      Delete
    4. I wonder if Microsoft was the inspiration for Skynet?

I must moderate-trust me. Criticize ideas, NOT the people behind them. Be civil. You will be warned twice and the third time just deleted. No N-Bombs. If you disagree with me, you must praise my hair first.
