road weary


ROAD WEARY
I was over reading Frank & Fern HERE and the comments section had folks expressing frustration and weariness over the never ending prepping and the always on Voice Of Doom, throwing away old food and etcetera. Just a general malaise over the constant grind. I cannot pretend to understand how they feel, as I am too busy, too focused on More Doom. But I think I can understand how they feel in general. I just have a different target, as do some of you. We are just tired of people who are an obstacle for prepping, and some preppers are just tired of prepping itself.
*
But I think everyone is just wore down in general. Change is inherently bad for our species, and there is simply too much change everywhere. It gets discouraging. You have plenty of pieces of two by four lumber laying around, but it is still illegal to hit the idiots upside the head to knock some sense into them. You just want to yell into their faces, coating them with semi-toxic spittle, you are a jag-off! Stop trying to fix wasn't broken until you broke it, by trying to break it more! Humping idiots!
*
I never get tired of stockpiling More, nor do I ever get tired of stockpiling Different. But I only maintain my sanity by writing, I suck at fiction, so I embrace prepping more because I love writing about it than I do just prepping. I'm a bit better insulated against burn out because of that. I don't look at thirty buckets of lard disposed of by burial and think, damn, what a waste. I look at all the shortening I replaced it with and say, hmm, there's an article I can write. Sure, the extra money hurts a little, but I have to get rid of it somehow anyway.
*
Then, I look at how all the shortening I bought is now double to triple the price and I think, suckers! I TOLD you to stock up while it was on clearance. Something else to write about, AND I feel superior and I start doing a Eddie Murphy dance, “I got some shortening, you don't get none, your mama's on the welfare!” Much too busy to get tired of any of this. But I DO get weary and discouraged almost every day. And for probably the same reason the other folks did. Another day the apocalypse didn't happen, dammit!
*
I don't mean it in the sense I want to get killed after eating way too much wheat and freezing in the dark. I just want it to get over with as I'm tired of the anticipation. I'm sure most other people are just tired of the extra work that might not be needed. But those folks don't like history. If they did, there would be absolutely no doubt in their minds that this sucker is going down. And that would get them through each hard day, each bucket of stale food they had to give to the chickens that weren't even laying because of the cold.
*
I think there will be a special place in heaven for my father and the teachers in my little Podunk central California town when they pass. They all really instilled a love of history in me. Just for loving it themselves, and being excited about it and NEVER focusing just on dates and kings. I feel I was luckier than most, but then, Baby Jesus has had a plan for me all along. My first love was military history because, duh, guns and other manly objects.
*
I didn't even know it at the time, but at six years old I was already studying the subject. My dad, who thankfully doesn't remember the incident, made me a wooden model gun for Halloween. But it was a Garand. Dammit! I threw a fit because it wasn't the NEW gun the military was using. I have no idea where I picked that up from. It could have only been the newspaper or evening news. But at that age, how did I know the difference? Of course, I had second thoughts on that once I had to use one. But just studying military history, once you are old enough to analyze it, you realize that is exactly how you DON'T want to fight. Even that helps planning.
*
Of course, I quickly got into more than simple military history. I got interested in conspiracies and their history and had the good fortune of knowing Loompanics from their militant material, turning me on to Robert Anton Wilson. Which got me into more Hippie subjects. And, after discarding crap like UFO's, One World Illuminati, Jewish Overlords, and the like, more behind the scenes manipulations by the elite. History opens up so much more than its direct study would suggest.
*
History is of itself beneficial to know, because nothing new is under the sun. Nothing. It was ALL done and thought of before. Now I read that not only Germany circa Hitler but Rome WAY back when, all had hippie movements. But just getting into studying history, you want to know more about everything from engineering to anthropology. It excites the mind. Is that why most folks ignore it? Their mind is numb at the end of the work day and they just want to turn it off?
*
Was it just the bad teachers, like the ones that ruined math or sex education for you? I mean, they made drivers education dull as dishwater, and you are still driving, right? I kid. I'm sure it was terrible teachers. And being tired at the end of the day. And disliking social sciences in general. Not having time after sports. Hey, I KNOW people are weird because they aren't just like me. Their loss, not mine. But I can understand the general hatefulness toward the subject for all the reasons. I don't judge. Too much.
*
As for the food rotation, that confuses me slightly. What are folks rotating? The only thing I keep that doesn't have a minimum of a decade shelf life is peanut butter. And because that no longer has a three to five year life after its stated expiration date like it used to ( now I don't trust it past about six months-they charged the formula somehow. And you can tell, just from its repulsive smell, that it isn't edible ), I only carry about two cases of it. That is just a BOB's worth and a taste fatigue item for the initial cupboard eating.
*
I want to buy more food for longer eating after the apocalypse. Because farming won't be as easy as assumed ( weather, pests, brigands, pollution and denuded soil ). I don't want to buy more because I'm throwing out the old stuff. Taste is for Prepper Princess Pussies. Longevity and calories should be your primary considerations ( then nutrition. Taste is WAY down the list ). You can always take vitamins and eat wild greens. You need to focus on calories. What? You think you deserve it all, because you are a snowflake?
*
You are one unit out of seven BILLION. By any metric except your own, you do not count. You are expendable. The odds do NOT favor you. Pick the lesser of evils, in this case more calories that last longer, before nutrients or taste. The whole point is to survive, not to thrive. Calories first. And more calories. Then, more calories. $25 will get you a year of Vitamin C and a multivitamin and wheat will get you sprouts for the micro- nutrients. You'll survive longer with inferior calories than with less calories.
*
Tomorrow, let's discuss exactly how little you really need to survive. Just to make this whole endeavor less stressful.

prepper rock stars 2


PREPPER ROCK STARS 2
Now, as I've said many times, I don't HATE Rawles. I do not agree with 99% of his teachings, but those are not his fault. He was an officer in the military, and with only a few exceptions they only take a certain kind of person into their gentle embrace and reinforce their natural tendencies of supporting and strengthening the existing order. If I was being unkind, I would shotcut label that as a “puppet”. But there is no reason to be unkind, because it is the analyticals such as myself who are the freaks of evolution.
*
Most people join the Hive Mind, the Monkey Mind and it is the unquestioning following that strengthens the group. And in the military, thinking for yourself can really undermine group solidarity. And no, I do NOT think there is much Intelligence in MI. Not to insult individuals, but rather the institution. MI is just as “one size fits all” as any other group in the military. Your homework assignment tonight is to go watch “Spies Like Us”. Dan's character, stuffed down in the basement because he ACTUALLY gathered intelligence? Yeah, like that.
*
Most people ARE Monkey Minds. They subvert Lizard Brain to get the advantages of group security, and few break out from there into Human Mind, which is a step above Monkey Mind but dangerous exactly because it is. Rawles is just a monkey, regurgitating all the old guru's. I don't mean that as an insult. He is just normal. He was taught Hive Mind, and in turn teaches Hive Mind. And this isn't meant to discount his achievements. He did actually improve on the old teachings. The only problem is they are built on faulty frames.
*
Which I think are comprised of a lot of Peacock Feather posturing. Rawles was great, for introducing a Rich Bitch prepping strategy that everyone could undertake. He did not suppose everyone was rich to begin with. This is commendable. I certainly do not wish to detract from his discipline and insight. The problem is that as time goes on that strategy is harder and harder to achieve. And it is erroneously based on being able to time the collapse. I think that has been his undoing, because every year it becomes more and more obvious that the collapse will probably occur before folks can prepare his way.
*
I mean, DAMN!, if you don't put a little lipstick on that fracking pig, if you don't buy the official story of a Century Of Energy Independence, things get pretty obviously humped real quick, and his optimistic call of Peak Oil 2030 simply cannot hold up. Also, his Blue Helmet Invasion looks highly unlikely as EU troops can't even defeat Muzzy Invaders. But I don't mean to belabor any failed predictions. If you want failed predictions, go to ANY month on this blog. No, I am merely unhappy with underlying premises.
*
Rich Bitch Prepping, going back to Mel Tappon, is the basic issue, not which unfortunate bastard took that lesson to heart, erroneously. And I don't even blame Mel. He was a product of his times. I think as soon as the 'Murican Dream died, an excusable reaction would be the grasping at wealth, overcompensating for the fact our asses just went broke. Americans have always been far too focused on wealth, which goes back to Puritanism, which we can blame on the greedy and corrupt Papists.
*
Any culture with one of its central tenets being that God only loves you if you have money is going to be a bit dysfunctional. But the difference between then and now is that before, there was wealth to be had. Now, all wealth is either a zero sum game or simply delusional. Before, wealth was attainable even if it produced fundamentally flawed human beings. Now, the greed is the same ( or, if not greed, at least desperation to get into heaven ) but there is really no more water to be had at that well. Then, God loved you. Now, God hates you for being a pauper. Go to Hell, go directly there as you have not pleased Him.
*
I'm not poking fun at religion or a Supreme Being. I'm saying most Europeans got a pretty crappy deal the last millennium, first forced to deny their pagan gods at the militant hands of Christianity, then offered the alternative of themselves rather than the church being greedy, and all the time dying by the holier than thou sword from both sides. A LOT of our cultural baggage flows through that history. Our country was not founded on freedom, but rather colonial wealth extraction.
*
For four hundred years, give or take, we were ONLY focused on wealth, motivated by a religion focused on wealth, and when that finally ended in the 1970's ( and, HELLLLOOOOOO!!!!!, have you noticed that fundamentally stalling, that end of wealth? ), our narrowly focused pea brains could not process that shift and we have been in Super Denial ever since then. Part of that denial is worshiping High Techism, some is a denial the Oil Age will ever end. A bit is deciding ours will be the only empire in history to ever survive, and etcetera.
*
So strong is our denial that even when we accept the inevitability of a collapse, we infuse the old wealth paradigm into that. We can only survive if we have money. Our Puritan God will only save those with money. Without money, survival chicks won't dig you. Newsflash, hot shot. Money means dingus all. Balls and ability trump money any day of the week. Obviously, they don't produce supplies out of thin air ( ability does not manufacture anything without resources ). But they secure a LOT more than just money, all things being equal. I know you agree, or you wouldn't be here. But it still helps if you identify the source of any dissenting voice.
*
Wealth is useful, one cannot deny. It can also be rather distracting. And sometimes it just screws things up, like when you want to get ready for the end of ALL wealth ( yeah, sorry, dudes. The current order will sputter along until all wealth is gone, used up or destroyed. Like the oil left. It is thousands of feet down. You can't pump it out manually. It might as well be on the floor of the ocean ). Trying to stock a lifeboat to get you to Point B, fine. Trying to keep up the lifestyle afterwards? Good luck with that one. Sometimes the grass on the other side has been grazed off also.

note: on the Repo Crisis noted previously ( Federal Reserve propping up bank liquidity ), the talking idiots went from a week, to a month "temporary event" to now, through January.  You can call it QE27, but that ignores the severity.  Banks are clearly insolvent, and clearly a '08 Redux bailout is in swing.  If I were you I would NOT expect good things from this.  At the very least, energy price and inflation increases.

prepper rock stars


PREPPER ROCK STARS
You know who I'm talking about, the survivalist guru's who lead the perfect life with the perfect plan for preppers. Those we are all supposed to emulate. I think this crap started with fallout shelters. Not that the poorest worker couldn't have one, as the Civil Defense folks published a lot of decent plans for do-it-yourself, but the Money Envy aspect of it must have been a factor, with store bought versus homemade. But it really kicked into high gear with Mel Tappon. While older folks were smart enough to appreciate a homemade shelter, the newer ones seemed to feel they needed Mel's arsenal.
*
( As an aside, I was writing the above and had a Blond Geriatric moment and forgot Mel's name. I was futzing about the Internet trying to search for it, as I had ALSO forgot his books names, and stumbled on a discussion on a gun forum. Mostly the discussion was on the lost relevance of Mel's books, being outrageously outdated, and some schmuck goes on about how Mel was off on his timetable and hence one shouldn't prep too much and should just focus on financial preparations. I almost vomited blood )
*
( I don't know if this needs an extra article all on its own, but I'll be content here to interrupt this one. I don't know if this guy was just a Yuppie Scum, thinking money solved most problems, a paid wanker for the central bank or just an idiot who had no business touching on survivalism as it was a subject he had no understanding on. First, who could be blamed for the thinking the end was nigh, after the 70's? And second, after all the false alarms since then, who preps unless they truly think the system itself is unstable, no timetable needed? )
*
I don't know why we feel the need to follow the rich. Obviously, this goes back way before the modern Oil Age. The rich, to set themselves apart from the poor, spreading their peacock feathers to attract the best mates. Certain poor, or at least Not Rich, find a way to pretend to also be rich by duplicating the original feature that the rich used, be it using expensive spices at a dinner party or getting one of those newfangled Horseless Carriages. Then the cycle starts all over again as the rich find a new way to look really rich.
*
But in the meantime the rich figured out how to profit off of the old trend the idiot poor are still trying to use to attract a better breeder. Look at two examples, cars and real estate. Poor people are spending way more than is healthy trying to live in southern California, alongside the rich. The rich think nothing of spending ten million on a home, then investing in another home and then charging rent to the poor of $3k a month. All because the idiots wouldn't move away. It isn't like the rich didn't send a strong warning signal, through rising prices.
*
And did you have to start me on automobiles? Since the 1970's, FIFTY friggin years ago, the auto lifestyle that the rich started has been a losing paradigm. The poor, instead of moving, which any of them could do with a piece of junk land and a Greyhound ticket, stay around in a location requiring a car. So the rich make insurance mandatory, double the price of a vehicle, make them last half as long, and STILL the poor keep driving. Even when Saudi Arabia is bombed, they still keep driving. I mean, the writing isn't just on the wall, it is in huge neon letters, spelled phonetically so the rankest idiot among them can figure it out. STOP driving!!!
*
I guess I just answered my own question. The poor, and that is anyone that HAS to work, LOVE emulating the rich. They cannot stop. They can't help themselves. Some little voice camped down south in their pair of whitey-tighties is hollering about getting the most expensive piece of pussy they can find. Not just “get laid”, but “get laid to the nicest looking piece of ass I can find”. Stupid humps. There is pussy all over the place, willing and able to be yours if you just stopped looking at the Playboy Bunny models.
*
Sorry, ladies, if I'm being a bit crass. I think we can both agree that fat and ugly bitches need loving too. And there are a whole lot more fat and ugly out there than there are Beautiful People. Hell, I'm not pretty by any definition, and I sure don't have money. I appreciate fat and ugly. Which is just superficial anyway. Just like most folks who race after good looks or trying to impress people by what their possessions look like.
*
You THINK having a car makes you look successful. It just makes you broke, or at the very least indentured longer. And the only reason you can even drive cheaply, besides your mechanical skills, is that there is everyone else out there trying to look rich, who provide you with cheap cars. You think you are rich, profiting off that poor schmuck trying to look rich by driving. You are STILL trying to look rich. Do you realize “I'll quit driving when I have to” sounds a lot like “I can stop drinking any time I want to”.
*
So why am I surprised that DRIVERS! ( said in the same snide tone coastal yuppies use on Deplorables when they say BREEDERS! ) would also try to look rich in their prepping endeavors? Is that why there are Prepper Rock Stars, the fact that survivalism is like any other activity where one economic class tries to emulate the other? Oh, look at me, my closet full of canned food and a hunting rifle. I am preppared for the apocalypse! No, no, girls, look at ME! I have MRE's and semi-auto's, I am truly a more worthy life mate!
*
And why are we even trying to out spend each other? Women have probably already surpassed males in earnings ( don't you dare cry about Glass Ceilings, you ingrate bitches! Everyone's wagers are stagnant to falling. Take men's wages, subtract the marriage tax, subtract future loses due to lack of college, and you all earn more and hold more positions ). The last two wives I had to support were either gold diggers or unemployable from medical issues alcoholics. Among NORMAL women, few need our wages.
*
Yes, I understand that human hardwiring is not going to change. Underneath the superficial culture currently in place, we are still bare assed savages. Women are still going to be selected on looks and men will still compete with each other for that. In the meantime, before culture is restored to regularity, realize the limitations your programming is having on you in our present environment. Your wired desire for the nicest pair of boobs ( hmmm, boobs! ) is seeing you do stupid crap like buy freeze dried foods, semi-automatics and four wheel bug out vehicles. STOP IT!!! Continued tomorrow.

note: a common complaint on having a Forever Arsenal in black powder was the insane gun price.  This seems a LOT more reasonable, a kit for $260 at Midway click HERE ( on sale as I posted this.  Regular price is $330 ).  If you wanted flintlock, that is almost double the price, unfortunately.  But you can get a cap maker HERE and the same company sells primer liquid ( at about 1cent per for the rimfire-not sure what it would take for this BP rifle.  But with the maker and liquid we are talking cheap to stockpile tens of thousands of percussion caps )
*
note: under the "everyone is entitled to act like an idiot" department, the Green Mountain Dude thinks the communists are being threatened by fascists, and tells them all to attack anyone not Politically Correct click HERE .  Good Gravy, Hippies are something else.  I guess in Clown World, the exact opposite is reality.  Well, he still gives a mean dose of prepper advice.  You just need to ignore his politics ( and me personally, I'll ignore his Gore Warming warnings, as they are mostly based on ignoring solar inputs )

hit the road


HIT THE ROAD
Normally this isn't the kind of article I'd write, as it is far from frugal. I reconsidered in that it seems a few new minions want to move and are conflicted as to where a good place would be. The truth is, good places are not very good anymore. There are only Less Bad places. My normal advice is, pick a piece of junk land in a state that isn't too terrible, and pitch a tent and build yourself a cabin. It costs you under a grand, the down payment, a tent that will last longer than a month ( this probably rules out Wal-Mart ) and a Starplate Connector kit dome ferrocemented ( HERE ).
*
Alas, sometimes folks aren't ready to leap from decadent luxury to frugal off grid living, no matter how free that can make you. Sometimes it is necessary to bribe the wife, or yourself, into baby-step moving in that direction. So, even though this is a much more expensive way to do the very same thing, I assume you'll understand this is for folks with more resources. I've always said, if you don't want to change your lifestyle too drastically, just buy an RV and live in a trailer park in the dream location of your choice.
*
It ain't a retreat. It isn't your preferred off grid site. But it gets you out of the city, allows you to continue working, and offers a smaller but similar way of life as you are used to. Say you are foolish enough to want to live in Idaho ( I think the combo of high land cost and few jobs makes it a loser. Residents of said state think I'm a jackass ). You can't afford a home there, and rent is a bit much also. Just live in a RV park in a small city/large town near where you think you would like a retreat. Work. Search for property.
*
But more importantly, see if the state is all its cracked up to be. See if you were sold a pig in a poke by idiots who moved there eons ago and are giving you advice from a comfortable position you cannot duplicate. If you were to choose Nevada, most junk land has gone DOWN in price ( lucky me, buying at the top ). I'm not giving you impossible to follow advice. Yet, if you are unsure the cold desert is the place for you, or if you want to live among lost and pitiful former Californians ( who you'll really want to bitch slap ), better to rent and see than buy, even if land prices did halve.
*
All my life, I've happily moved unencumbered, testing out a place to live. If I didn't mind the place, I'd buy a trailer there rather than renting a room or a flea bag hotel spot or God forbid an apartment. That might not be so easy anymore. You should be able to buy affordable RV's, but they might only be feasible for junk land. Two trends make it harder to live in RV parks. The greedy whores started only accepting newer trailer into their parks, because anyone too poor was obviously a drug user/dealer ( but in actual fact they wanted Social Security guarantees instead of minimum wage job lay-off possibilities ).
*
Thanks, twats. Trailers USED to be a way for poor working class folks to survive. The other problem is that a few giant corporations gobbled up all the RV manufactures in the 2009 meltdown. There might be scores of brand names, but only a few companies own them. As you might imagine, the RECREATIONAL in “RV” meant no one bought them in a Super Recession. The companies were bought cheap. All the Union workers were let go, and crackheads put on the assembly line. All labor AND materials are subpar. As the prices doubled and tripled.
*
Hey, just like your GM car! Not only are you forced to buy new-ish to be graciously allowed into a park ( usually lacking trees or much space between trailers ), you can't expect that trailer to last all that long ( unless you get land and put an extra roof over it ). So whatever your budget for an RV is, don't expect that to be anything other than a sunk cost. Like renting an apartment it is merely a cost with little return. HOWEVER! Even if the cost is too high for my taste, you still do gain from this strategy.
*
If an RV park rent is one half an apartment, in as little as three years the RV has paid for itself. If you find a spot at one third the cost, in two years the trailer starts saving you money ( I assume you buy slightly used, to reduce the “drive off the lot” asset depreciation ). Don't worry about buying a hunk of crap. The new ones start falling apart-literally-in a month or so. More importantly, you are not stuck in one location. You are free to hit the road and find exactly the right place you want to live permanently. You have the option of taking the RV to your junk land, saving extra money there.
*
Now, obviously, elves on sparkly unicorns don't whisk your RV from one spot to another. You need to pull it ( I wouldn't go with a motor coach unless you can fix it yourself-or you'll have no place to live when the thing is at the mechanics ). Almost never owning a vehicle, I always just bought locally after taking the bus. My last move up to the current location, I did have a truck that came with the RV. Bless that Chevy's heart, built back when that company embarrassed Ford. How sad is it that a truck built in the Oil Embargo 70's was much better quality than one made now in “boom times”?
*
The NOL's daughters family ( Larry, Curly and Mo ) sold their house for more than it should have been worth, paid it off with its refinanced mortgage, and had enough left over for a brand new fifth wheel trailer AND truck. Chasing jobs, “Larry” moved three times about the country, with only gas money being a consideration. For what they got they paid way too much, but they also gained a certain amount of freedom. Freedom to explore. As it turned out, Oklahoma and Arizona was too much of a culture shock and they returned to Nevada. But they found out first hand.
*
Me? I would have thought Oklahoma would have been a step up, but they are both Westerners and the humidity ( east part of the state ) must have been too much. I can't get much information as the daughter is one of those folks that doesn't allow input when she is focused on herself ( in other words, you just listen to her talk ). This is all second hand information. But they did give me the input that RV living can be more than just a cheap alternative to renting an apartment. It can be a decent way to find out where you want to relocate to, without committing yourself beforehand. It is living somewhere, not just visiting.
*
Visiting an area gives you a flavor, but it is just a superficial exposure. Living there shows you all its warts. Not a cheap strategy, but perhaps a better one for all its expense.

CW to collapse 5


CW TO COLLAPSE 5
I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea from where I left off yesterday. Deplorables, to a large extent, deserve what we are getting. We allowed our militant culture to be hijacked in the name of convenience. We got soft ( this goes way back, it wasn't JUST letting the 60's happen, but prior to that going back to even the Federal Reserve bank ). And we aren't at all that tough now. We only are getting practiced at losing our country. We still pine for the easy life. We aren't some Billy Bad Ass. We won't fight because we want a just system or a return to fairness.
*
We will however fight once we get hungry, and once that happens we have a LOT of suppressed rage and homicidal tendencies. We won't fight ideologically but rather out of being pissed off and wanting revenge. There won't be anything pretty about the coming Clearances. It won't be about justice or the Bill Of Rights or the freedom from communism. It will be about losing power and wanting it back. I'm merely stating that while we have been forced to do without, our enemies have gotten softer.
*
We will have the strategic edge. And, as long as we avoid certain areas, ceded to the enemy as untenable, we will have the demographic advantage. Now? We are hosed, everywhere, even lily White Maine being Blue Belly controlled. But THEN? A whole different story. The reason we are defeated now is because 30% of the population, White females, stand against us. But the enemy, the Marxists, the Blue forces, the dumbasses are already busy alienating the very sector that handed them power. I find this delicious and militarily advantageous.
*
Resources are getting too thin on the ground for the 70% of the population that has culturally defeated us. Because they keep importing more of them, in a resource contraction. They dilute their own power base through overpopulation ( free medical and free immigration ). Every day there are less jobs and less profits to share with the masses, as those masses grow. So the easiest target to steal the needed funds through are White Bitches. The OtherColors cannot help themselves. They would rather have 100% of nothing than their demographic share of 40%. The Blacks have tasted too much Kool-Aid to go back to the scraps of yore.
*
The Latinos have gotten too much population growth to stay content with menial jobs. But the Blacks and Hispanics are only 40% of the population. With White Females, they held a majority. Without them, they lose that. But at this time they strive mightily to alienate White Females because that is the exact group that has the biggest share of wealth among them. It is a target too rich to ignore. As the overall wealth shrinks, and White Males only have a few good jobs left them ( far below the 30% of White Females employment ), who else can the minorities target but one of their own?
*
You can already see the hate and animosity directed at White Females. Thy are targeted as betraying the Political Correctness religion. Those whose alter is The Worst Oppressed, don't see very much oppression among the largest employment group. They want those jobs! They want more taxes to get more money off of workers whose jobs they don't want or can't have. And as these things move so much quicker today than decades past, one can imagine how quick the new target will fall.
*
Here is what I see happening. The economy is already imploding. Very quickly, unemployment-in fact, not officially noted- soars and the OtherColors Marxists will ramp up affirmative action and get most remaining jobs transferred to themselves. Suddenly, women, who follow the money just as men do, find themselves fellow persona non grata along with the White Males they just spent decades fighting and penalizing. All the Politically Correct females suddenly realize that non-Whites aren't actually their friends. And about that time, actual confiscation of White property, akin to South Africa/Zimbabwe, kicks into high gear. And Whites, both genders, finally get the balls to fight back.
*
Property confiscation alone isn't enough. Look at the middle class losing most of their real estate wealth, while the bankers did NOT lose their heads. But, here is the money shot, Whites are also going hungry. And going hungry is what starts revolution. There is plenty of land in rural areas that disposed Whites can inhabit. But we aren't immigrant farmers like the last time Whites fled oppression. We can't feed ourselves ( the corn belt will be militarily occupied, to feed the cities, and all petroleum products ear marked there ). And the Blues don't have to force famine onto us. But their incompetence will.
*
I don't want to cover race here other than as a tribal marker. It could be culture rather than race. But the fact is, Blacks have a long history of NOT thriving past a tribal level. This is actually a survival trait, and I wish Whites had remained tribal. Blacks simply cannot inherit or initiate nation states at a competent level. Again, not a bad thing. White gave up tribes for nation and we are suffering from that now that the surplus energy/resources is gone. Species survival wise, Blacks are now proving to be smarter than us.
*
BUT. That doesn't change the fact that they are incompetent culturally at feeding rural areas in a large country. Whites are incompetent at tribal unity, and as you can see that lost us our country, even if we are great at nation building. The cultures, not the race, is at play here. Please refrain from remarks “proving” how inferior OtherColors are. Intelligence was bred for, among Whites. That doesn't make us superior. It made us winners, until that was turned against us. In both instances, we were the Elites prison bitches. Don't crow about that.
*
Okay, so, the economy crashes. The current power structure madly resists losing power and doubles down on Political Correctness and ejects White Females from power, confiscating their resources. Most White females, now that there is no money in miscegenation, reject cohabiting with foreign cultures and flock to more areas of their own kind. Marxist OtherColors centralize in large urban areas. To conserve resources, the rural areas are starved of resources and doubled down on tax extraction to fund the broke cities. Lacking money to buy heavily taxed food, or to even buy unavailable food, then you see revolt.
*
Follow my chain of logic. As wealth contracts, groups are denied a share in the pie until rebellion occurs. Once the non violent PC War starts racking up the body count, as it must from no other options, the war goes hot. Once that happens a severe economic collapse causes all infrastructure to collapse ( how long before robot run military protected farms and silos are attacked by hungry rurals? How long do major electric power lines stay standing? Etc. ), at which time the country must fragment. The economic collapse didn't bring in the apocalypse.
*
The economic collapse caused a civil war, which then destroyed all vulnerable infrastructure which brought on a civilization collapse. I'm not saying White Deplorables will survive the process. They will probably be strategically victorious. Because surrounded ill-supplied cities are more vulnerable. But without coal and oil, which laid out said infrastructure, White Enclaves will be just as vulnerable to collapse as the cities are. We'll have the cultural organization, and the competent help ( you do realize all you Honkey's now employed are largely the result of holding the last merit based jobs ), but we will NOT have the resources.
*
We must destroy the infrastructure to survive as a race ( if one assumes the Marxists want to genocide us. I do ), which is not important per se, just individually for being a target ( in other words, you don't fight to defend your race, you fight as part of that race, just to keep from being eradicated ). The destroyed infrastructure WILL lead to an early civilization collapse. But the wealth was already extracted and so the infrastructure was already decaying. Don't allow arguments calling for its preservation to deceive you.
*
I'm undecided if this needs another article continuation. I think a discussion on how we will follow aspects of African nations decay might be relevant ( we'll be different in that we don't have Oil Age nations propping up our rule with aid to extract wealth ). We'll see.

CW to collapse 4


CW TO COLLAPSE 4
I was going to cover Derivatives, as it is directly relevant to how quick our economy is going to eat crap. Luckily, I had a rare moment of clarity and did a search on the blog and came up with a series of articles I already did on the subject that were better than anything I could have written now. You can read the first installment if you care to, but the meat of the subject is in the second one ( posted on 5-18-2017 ).
*
I would avoid #3, as it kind of seemed like I had stuck a crayon up my ass and squatted over the paper writing that one. I think this was when I was experimenting with writing two articles a day. Too short and they seem to suffer from lack of details. Anyway, I strongly recommend you read that if you need to know about the dangers of Derivatives. I'll just say that the Russian Bond derivative fiasco which almost red lined the economy was tiny compared to the housing bubble. And the Everything Bubble popping now will make the housing bubble look even smaller. All courtesy of greed through Derivatives.
*
Let us now go back to assuming that all the wealth left in the economy ( for instance, JP Morgan gaming the silver market to go very strong Physical Silver, buying on the dips from profits playing the derivatives game ) has been taken out and absconded with. There might be physical assets left in place, such as oil refinery plants, but as we have seen from the Saudi facilities knocked off line, global industry has taken such a beating and demand is now so low ( those unemployed from robots tend to have less buying power ) that these assets might be costing more than they are making.
*
Plus, how hard is it to make more money using up or breaking up assets until they aren't worth dingus? In case you kind of missed that party, that profit dynamic has been employed for at least the last forty years if not longer. Look at all the factories left in Detroit, not even worth the value the land used to hold. Look at those tracts of suburbia that have as many crack houses as middle income mortgage holders, the banks making money on allowing those assets to sit unused, decaying before their eyes.
*
This is what I'm getting at, all the wealth already extracted. A house that costs less in building materials than the state or country is charging in builders permits, selling for a third of a million dollars, didn't have that much in value to begin with. Certainly not the asking price, and one wonders if even the interest costs on a thirty year mortgage. Companies that only stay in business by emulating Turd World countries which pay their bills by continuously getting new loans at lower interest rates, have in essence zero value. Their equipment worth scrap price as no one can make a profit using it themselves.
*
Even a companies fleet of vehicles ( and an individuals, obviously ) have almost no value as car companies race to the bottom making cars last so many fewer miles than they used to. Intellectual property seems to be worth far less than it should, as management, chock a block full of Diversity Hires, cannot help themselves from ruining any franchise they get hold of. Just look at Star Wars, every picture's profit getting closer and closer to production cost, and they still keep terrible management in place.
*
And before you congratulate yourselves being a citizen of a land full of forests or soybean fields, recall that there are a LOT of other places that have a cost of extraction WAY lower than ours. Which, I'll remind you, is land worth even less if there is a hot war being conducted on top of those “assets”. Ever notice how little parts of Africa are exploited? Hard to get workers to toil in a war zone for wages the CEO thinks are “fair” ( “Jesus, people, we are paying you more than Chinese Coolies, what more do you want?” Don't you love how Chinese wages were used against us 170 years ago, just like today? ).
*
What I'm trying to convey is that there is no longer much interest in the financial overlords to oversee the wealth extraction, now that the true wealth is gone. The trouble isn't worth it. Hell, their last best profit center, college loans, isn't even viable, far too many unemployed “smart” people unable to find employment to service those. We aren't going to be saved, because there is nothing to be saved ( if any one of you come out with that Forbes BS propaganda about how overpopulation is good because now there are more bright souls contributing to mans advancement through knowledge, I'll bitch slap you. Knowledge without resources is useless ).
*
We are, for all intents and purposes, an abandoned African colony, left to fend for ourselves by a broke ass European power. We haven't reached the level of Zimbabwe yet, but we are at least Angola ( the marxists are working towards turning us into a repeat of South Africa, with its White Genocide, but we were never a White minority in a Black country, but the opposite. Care to guess who wipes out who? ).
*
I want to change the focus here for a second and talk about Mountain Guerrilla, the writer. He had a very good article about how the Deporables are dangerously downgrading the Lefts abilities ( never underestimate your enemies, by misjudging both them and yourself ). A minion left a link on said article, which I do NOT want to search for as too much time has passed and the comments sections are far too full, but I believe it was written about two years ago if you want to search his web page.
*
He makes very good points. The Left is out there taking police batons to the head, protesting whatever weekly injustice they were just woke to, as our militia heavy of jowl and imagined military prowess angrily tap away on their computers. As I said, a very good point. But this supposes that the geopolitical situation as currently exists stays the same. A good portion of the courage that the Left possesses is for the simple reason that “their” side is on their side AND controls most institutions. A lot of their physical attacks are ignored or minimized.
*
So conversely White Deplorables must take EXTRA caution dealing with the Marxists because all the institutions are AGAINST us, not supporting us. It is easy being brave when the police chief will stand down his men at a riot, or at least you get a sympathetic judge. Deplorables get set up, get the book thrown at them, and are treated by different harsher standards. The only time one of theirs gets treated as harshly is when another operation benefits from it, which is rare.
*
Deplorables are probably mostly blowhards and pussies, but more Leftists would be also if they faced our justice system ( justice is in tiers now, in case you missed all the current shenanigans obviously pointing this out ). And, as is plain to see, the future belongs to us. We are the ones living without the benefits of the system, and so are hardened, and we are the ones who must survive without them, giving us practice. We have no will, but are armed. Give us the will, and we already have the means. And the will quickly follows our current path of being denied even food. I'll continue tomorrow with that.

old dudes suck


OLD DUDES SUCK
I was going to continue with the “CW To Collapse” series, and I most certainly will as I'm enjoying it, but last night I got a rather unprecedented four hours sleep, with an extra half hour after that of cat napping. I feel like a commie Leftard trying to think past her programming, purple hair smoking from the effort to process fitting two opposite ideas together ( I was going to use the example of the meme with Muslims and women but I'm so loopy I can't recall it ). “Well, don't write today, dumbass”. I never called in sick to work.
*
Well, okay, I did a few times twenty-five years ago. The company insisted on sending their people to stores NOT in their neighborhood, I believe to cut down on “friend discounts”, which was silly because you meet people at your new store, but whatever since they paid a minimum of 50% over all competitors. Gas was $1 and you could find decent running cars for $500 all day long. Ah, the 90's. So, when I had car trouble, I just called in sick. They had people on standby to cover sick days and such. My store didn't suffer.
*
And once, I was pretty damn sick and I thought that the half hour drive would be too dangerous with my uncontrolled cough and dredging up of mucus. I think that was about the only time I ever really called in sick. I'd drag my ass in with a fever so high I was warm in minus fifteen degrees ( any brain damage I have can be attributed to my twin practices of refusing even aspirin-I no longer am that stubborn-as I spurned all drugs and breaking a fever by piling on the blankets ). I might put in a short day, bare minimum stuff, then go home early, but I never didn't show up for being sick.
*
All those people I infected? You are welcome. I just built up your immunity, however weakened by cocaine and syphilis it was. I tell you, I am a god among mere mortals. So, however incoherent and shoddy this article might be, I write it as it is necessary to keep discipline and work ethic alive ( yes, I know what you are going to say. “Isn't every day an incoherent mess of babble?” You might have a point, but in polite society we allow others the safe space of their illusions ). Besides, Tuesday is usually a double article writing day and I must already drop one of those. I dare not skip both.
*
I'm praying that waking up early and being unable to fall back asleep-usually no big deal-and that was after several days of less sleep, is not going to be a new regular occurrence. I kind of need a clear head to get through each day. It is one thing to just get six hours and then take a half hour nap, but getting less than six is quite another. Hopefully it was just the house being too warm as we turned on the furnace yesterday ( first snow on the 28th ).
*
I'm already having enough health issues. Last week, it was raining one day, but warm. I went walking. On the next day, it was raining and near freezing, so I didn't walk. Instead I got on the exercise bike. The day after, I was going to go biking as there was no rain ( this new Gore Warming extra rain for our location is great, but will take getting used to ) but the tire was flat.
*
And a brand new tube. Don't get me started on the old Green Slime tubes ( the new, way thicker, 50% more expensive ones look great but I'm using up my older, thinner ones first, replacing them as I go. More important to use a post-apocalypse superior tube than one today when Amazon still delivers ). NOL told me to take her car and I had a moment of weakness and agreed. Then, the day after THAT I can't remember why but I didn't walk. Three days not walking, compared to the regular one day off a week to rest.
*
My back started killing me. I knew better, because I've had the issue before. I always have to keep the lower back muscles toned ( I have curvature of the spine and exercise is the best medicine ). However, I NEVER had a bad back after skipping JUST two days. Let myself go for months, yes, but it never hit me this quick so hard. It took another five days of walking with sit-ups thrown in to get the pain to go away ( pain, plus, worries of my back “going out” ).
*
The week before that, I had been skipping one of my two morning whole wheat Nuke Breads. I was burned out and needed a break. Sometimes the same crap meal after meal, day after day just wears me down ( I don't like anything on it but salt and butter. I've tried many different things to change up the taste-none work ). I guess time got away from me and I went a whole week. That last day, I was getting dangerous energy level plunges. I was eating plenty of calories, but I wasn't eating the right type. My body needed the whole grain starch/sugars.
*
And not only did I get that energy drop, they are much more severe than they used to be. So bad, it is better to avoid them by any means. I have to start shoveling food in and not stop until I stop feeling nauseous and can get up from sitting. So I try to eat before I get hungry ( I can already tell this is NOT going to go over well after the apocalypse, these sudden energy drops ). Still a few months to go to age 55 and I already need to eat like I'm 70.
*
Here is my point. Getting old means you suck ass physically. I know that, as this isn't my first bout of deterioration. I'm just surprised it is coming on so suddenly now, without the warning signs I've been used to. I know a lot of you are older. I'm not trying to teach my grandma how to suck eggs. I know you know what I know. This is just a warning to the younger minions. Not only must you race the clock prepping because the collapse cometh, you must also race to get it completed before you get so old you cannot put in any more sweat equity.
