baby jesus loves me


BABY JESUS LOVES ME
Okay, a little something different.  I don’t this all that often, as the global Bison Publishing empire usually focuses on more social science than hedonistic consumerism.  I mean, sure, you have to be up wid da buying crap, given we are investing in the tools to transition us to the new Dark Age, but that activity is to be entered into with trepidation and due reluctance.  So I cover the best places to buy wheat and such.  But I normally don’t just do “my day at the mall” articles.  Commander Zero does those quite well.
*
Me?  Not so much.  I try to turn those into Survivalist Advertiser Monthly articles ( please hurry and buy your copy today- click here – as they might run out after the mass stampede selling two copies ).  But today is Sunday and I write two blog articles today ( so I can have Saturday’s as my day off.  Other days of the week I write one blog article and one Advertiser article ) and I sort of burned myself out on the deep and philosophical finishing up the Yellow Vest articles.  I thought, hey, I’ll do shallow and superficial this article.
*
Baby Jesus does love me above all others.  This gets proven time and again, so much so that I take it for granted.  But he loves me so much, even that is forgiven.  He just keeps reminding me.  Like, Dude, here is a wonderful birthday, just because you are my bro-hound.  Hell, I HATE birthdays.  I have to do math in my head now every time someone asks me how old I am ( “born 65, 35 to millennium, add 19, okay-54 this year” ).  I don’t want to be reminded I’m one year closer to the coffin.
*
Not that dying, or not, bothers me.  I just think it is stupid on general principle to celebrate one less year to live.  So I tend to try desperately to ignore my birthday and encourage others to follow suite.  Some years I’m far more successful than others.  At 30, I thought the day was quite the milestone.  My long standing goal had been to be writing full time by then ( I was off by a few years, but not too many ).  Not being rich or famous, but just fully invested in the effort.  That year, I was depressed by failure.
*
And of course no one noticed the event.  Thanks for caring, you bastards!  All alone without even $10 to treat myself to a restaurant meal ( as opposed to a divorcee one ).  So they ignore me when birthdays matter, but now insist on intruding when they don’t.  Why must you social butterflies draw me into your web?  But it really was nice when my daughter called and we chatted.  A rare event, it really made my day.  All subsequent events were no where near as nice, but they did contribute positively.
*
The NOL bought me some really thick mittens.  The military wool gloves aren’t much good for anything below freezing, but what I bought cheaply in bulk long ago.  Now I don’t want to go back to the thin crap.  I can understand why Germans froze at the gates of Moscow.  Few military's seem to understand how to properly equip their men for real cold.  Hell, we own Alaska, right?  And we invaded Siberia once.  Why do we insist on such crap for winter gear?  Anyway, I had super extreme gloves but they were too warm above zero. And I had the Above Freezing gloves.
*
I just didn’t have good 0 to 32 gloves.  Now I do ( one assumes you understand about covering those gloves with a shell if needed to factor in moisture and wind ).  And I’ll never go back now.  Just like I can’t return to crappy caps after wearing a fur hat ( fur is superior while stationary, but you do need layered caps bicycling ).  So that was the second best gift I could have gotten.  But the next day was almost as good.  Reading material and super double cheap ammunition.  I got a bonus continuation of my birthday.
*
The next day was my regular day to visit the B-POD so I also got my mail.  There isn’t a need to check the mailbox more than once a week, as I get so little mail.  For some reason Sportsman’s Guide keeps sending a catalog even though I generally only buy something perhaps twice a year.  Same with Midway USA.  I guess it is cheaper to auto mail catalogs than pay someone to winnow out the less profitable customers.  In the mail, besides a happy surprise donation, was my order of the DVD with the early issues of American Survival Guide.
*
I had pointed this out to those minority of caring minions who subscribe to the weekly newsletter, but then I was informed by a blessed fellow that E-Bay had a far better deal than Amazon, almost one third the price.  How was I going to NOT order it?  But the hits didn’t stop coming that day.  Later on, I’m minding my own business checking my e-mail and I get one from Midway USA on surplus 303 British ammunition.  At stupid cheap prices!  I didn’t WANT to spend limited funds on ammunition but how was to decline at these rates?
*
When rimfire ammunition is on sale at four cents a round, I yawn and move on.  Too many poor reports on the quality of those, and I already have three thousand ( out of a total of 14-15 ) so low quality ammo holds no more appeal to me.  Plus, I REALLY do have enough.  But the Queens Own, 303 British?  You can’t have enough of this stuff.  I have oodles and gobs of reloading equipment but never enough brass cases.  You can’t buy new unfired cases as they are more than factory loads. 
*
SG Ammo has surplus ammo at the same price as the Midway sale, but you have to buy 500 rounds plus pay shipping.  So I knew if a price is cheaper than them, you MUST buy.  Normally, nobody beats SGA.  I got a free shipping offer ( $43 for three boxes, but you needed to spend $49 for free shipping, so I ordered three orders of three boxes each ) PLUS, they tacked on a Happy Birthday Month 9% discount!  Of course, the penis pumping pricks in the state mansion insisted on sales tax, so I ended up back at 45 cents a round rather than 41.
*
Yet, come on!  Forty-five cents a round is almost back down to 2005 ammo prices.  So not only did Baby Jesus profess his undying eternal love for me by offering giveaway ammo prices, he was as a special bonus warning me that the economic end simply had to be nigh with prices this Full Retard cheap.  And, I could even argue as ANOTHER bonus that I get to laugh uproariously at everyone who insisted that only by switching to 308 could I ever get affordable ammo.  Take THAT!, Enfield no4 haters. 
*
I think that almost concludes my Today At The Mall article.  One other special treat was we found a really decent action flick on Amazon Prime, “Sleepless” ( really good compared to most of the other modern films that ignore story ) that night.  And, I’ll repeat in case my new arrivals from Woodpile Report ( thanks ‘Ol Remus dude! ) are still around, I mean absolutely no offense to any religious folks.  I’m having fun and mocking those you really think they are God’s actual voice on this mortal coil ( although I’m not entirely kidding about being divinely blessed ).

note: partial comment posted yesterday "one of your best.  So many points that most of us don't consider".  My response was "if it wasn't for all my super generous minions I wouldn't have gotten to this level of writing. They grant me independence that frees and freshens my mind.  I couldn't do this without them and can only take a little bit of the credit".  'Nuff said.

note: a couple of hours after I posted the above, I went on my weekly mail run.  Donation roll call.  JRG, thank you for the excellent snail mail donation.  JGM- insanely generous, bro.  A few hours after THAT, a very nice PayPal donation from SF-much appreciated.

    Yeah, I don’t get that trend either? Beyond the 21st birthday, when one is granted full rights as a citizen (to now include being able to purchase certain types of firearms in many jurisdictions) there is no point in celebrating them.

    The one that really gets me is when you see some poster at a site (such as a movie discussion forum) wishing a long deceased celebrity a happy birthday? They’re f _ _ king dead dude! :D

  2. Good to hear that the stars and planets aligned up for you Jim. It probably is divine intervention, as there may be big events for you. This is ground work planning by higher authority that appears unbeknownst on the exterior. Seize opportunities when ever they appear, as you are correct time is short for these good old days.

    1. I think I've been doing about 50/50 on these kinds of sales. I don't buy whenever they are offered, just about half the time. My budget doesn't allow unlimited. And this was definitely THE best bargain so far for the last decade. Happy but spooky.

  3. Yeah, me too. We have harbor freight tools in my a.o. (chicom tool store). They have markdowns and coupons that make good deals for the last of the oil age manufactured imports. I budget a bit of money (other than just being a slut and blowing it all on guns and ammo and flir scopes) to build up tool and equipment inventory while the getting is good and the economy limps it's crippled self along. Although yard sales offer better deals, the selection and condition may not meet requirements. Some times Minionites must fall in formation with the other mall walkers and get a retail purchasing dope fix.

    1. Retail sucks, but no retail will suck a lot worse. I actually should go a lot more often, but you never know when Charlie is hiding in the shadows of the empty Sears store.

    2. Every time Harbor Freight offers a free blue tarp. I use a 20-30% discount coupon and get something like rubber disposable gloves or other preps. Must have fifty of those little blue tarps lol

    3. HF has GOT to be one of the few growing retailers. And probably all because of those little blue tarps ( redneck roofs ) :D

  4. In cold temperatures, a lot can be overlooked when your hands and feet are warm and toasty. God, Vinter can be tough on old arthritic fingers, warm gloves are Gold indeed. I rarely wear a hat of any sort, but my Brother often wears a bomber's hat when its cold. He wold agree with you - fur seems to keep his head warmer than a balaclava or other form fitting head wear. Its got to be the dead air space.

    I don't mind birthdays coming and going. I celebrated 56 trips around the sun this past January and am surprised time is going so fast - that toilet paper roll comparison is pretty accurate, going faster at end of roll.

    My Son told me last year "You are 15 years from age 70." "No I'm not ---- oh Fuck Me !" Lol, its all good man. Just keep rolling with the punches.

  5. Curious on your thoughts as to how and when a minion transfers "reserves" from the town residence to the bugout residence? Seems like an impossible logistic effort. Transfer too soon and it resides at the bugout location without sufficient security. Wait too long and warlocks will ambush and raid the booty for their use. Not withstanding the almost immediate corralling of righteous homeboys by the deep state and the heavy load of ammo, etc. to be moved. Minion be in need of guidance!

    1. Short answer is you are humped. Long answer-give me a couple of hours. I'm in the middle of writing next Mondays article and don't want to get sidetracked, then I have to get to the PO before the lunch rush. I want to give you an adequate answer. Tune back in here.

    2. There is no good answer for two shelters both equipped for doomsday. There is no good answer for bugging out with supplies. You are kind of screwed no matter what you do. As you might remember, I had this issue a year ago. After three years of no issues, my place off grid started getting pilfered. All the expensive stuff got swiped-a heck of a lot of propane tanks and my solar panels. As they ran out of high dollar stuff they swiped all kinds of other goodies like dead batteries ( emergency lead ), electronics, canned food.

      I was lucky ( Knock On Wood! ) that they left most stuff alone that was in line of sight with the neighbors ( I think they mostly came at night ). I was able to salvage a few high value items and the rest is mostly subject to damage more than theft. They cleared out the worthy goods for a crack fix. Not to say I don’t have big bucks tied up in what is left, just that to most people it is junk. I do the best that I can keeping a better eye on the place, but I’m still at their mercy.

      I really had no choice but to rely on stocking two locations. The main difference is that out there I buried 50% of my wheat and here I have mostly supplemental food ( sugar, pasta, trash picked freeze dried ) I can leave if must be. My only solution is to rely on several mini-SUV loads to get it all out there, but then I’m only six miles away. What I’m not liking is my need to keep all my weapons in town to avoid their theft. It leaves my deadly eggs in one basket.
      *
      Not knowing your situation, I can only recommend burying everything ( I really must on some weapons ). Most guns will fit in the 4 inch PVC pipes, as will your ammo. I buried half my wheat in the five gallon buckets, although I realize the burrowing animal hazard. I did it prior to the theft, just from lack of room to store more. Now I’m glad. If you only have freeze dried, perhaps consider opening the metal cans you paid dearly for, vacuum seal in bags and stuff in PVC pipe. Truthfully, this is a sucky situation, not being able to live at the retreat. There are only terrible solutions.

      It is almost as if you need accept collateral damage, stocking extra knowing there will be loss. That REALLY sucks-as if this wasn’t expensive enough as it was. Sorry, dude.

    3. Thanks for your honest response. A lot to consider going forward.

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.
