INVESTING IN FOOD

I’m yelling at you, these last few months ( well, years now, but I’ve increased my urgency these last few months ), that you need to drop everything and go Full Retard on food. And I’m not talking Full Retard like you should spend money on food as a priority and all your extra money goes to food. I’m talking about breaking into the saving account to buy food. I’m saying if I didn’t have enough food, I’d cash out my 401k to buy food ( and buy junk land, so the bank could never repo my home with all my food in it ).

*

Look, I’m not going to try to sell you on some new and unique disaster barreling down on us like Biden’s Handmaiden is going to go full commie retard, or that this is a Thousand Year Drought, or that we will run out of oil tomorrow. Those things CAN happen, but that is not why I’m concerned. I’m concerned that all the old disasters are repeating themselves ( economic, political, environmental. Don’t you worry none now, ya hear. I’ll be getting into those details ) and this time there is no way to stop them from completing their Going To Crap cycle. I’m increasing my food, and I have little money and really no need to do it, but that is how worried I am.

*

I really don’t have any extra room to put more food ( well, I have far more room than storage containers ), but somehow I managed to reorganize and repurpose and squeezed in another three hundred pounds of flour. And that is just THIS months panic buy. I have no idea how Wal-Mart can still offer flour for $5.18 for twenty-five pound sacks, but I’m taking advantage of their oversight. I am constantly adding to the regular grocery stockpile, always finding more ways to find extra room. And I started out before Corona with over fifteen man years of calories. I should be up very close to twenty, now, and yet is is NOT enough ( recall- me, NOL and three Coneheads ).

*

Honestly, if I had the containers, I’d put more savings into food than what I did my arsenal and precious metals combined ( don’t get excited. I ALWAYS prep cheap, so my “expensive” is probably not yours ). Why don’t I just bite the bullet and buy containers? Because while I have spent a quarter the price of food on containers, and at times even spent half, right now you are lucky to JUST spend half. Right now a Home Despot bucket costs $1.20 a gallon. Wheat is $1.25 a gallon. A Wal-Mart steel trash can is $2.50 a gallon, twice the price of the wheat.

*

I’m NOT spending the insane amounts on storage containers, because I don’t have to. I have food out the wazoo. I’m mostly spending the savings on everyday grocery items ( prioritizing climate control stored food over containers. The containers could go outside in sheds or the basement ). Because frankly, I see the Corona 2020 Bare Shelves coming again, but on steroids. And while I have wheat out the wazoo, I don’t have regular weekly shopping items in the quantities I desire. ONLY fifty packs of mac & cheese? ONLY fifteen cases of Top Ramen? ONLY four cases of pork and beans? ONLY fifteen pounds of instant rice? ONLY 25 pounds of pinto’s to make my own refried beans? These are the stockpile deficiencies I’m fixing ( to give perspective, each of the above we only eat once a week ).

*

That is just self stable dinner starches. I keep a rotating stock of fifty pounds of raw potatoes, and am drying more every day. I am comfortable at six months everyday food ( not including the apocalypse stock ) stocked, but REALLY am growing uncomfortable now and want to try to edge that up to a years worth ( as soon as the shelves emptied, I’d cut the meat portions in half, so to take my six months freezer meat and double that. Despite the danger of the social unrest probably taking out the grid soon after. Once that happens I have extra canning jars and propane ).

*

So, I’m NOT worried about starving. I fixed that soon after 2008. I’m worried about not having enough non-apocalypse food. And yes, you COULD call me a spoiled little Yuppie Scum bitch, but I don’t care. Because I went Full Frugal on all my apocalypse preps, and have more than I can use, I feel I deserve to spoil myself buying the regular food I eat every day ( I still eat one third my calories in whole wheat. But I treat myself to a regular dinner, for being a good boy and eating all that horse food ).

*

I’ve BEEN yelling at you to go all out on prepping food. Because I think ALL the food surplus is going to be ending soon. I’m just now adding, even if you got your several years of collapse food, now go crazy on everyday eating food. Because more disruptions ARE guaranteed. And why is this? Mainly, it is the economy, stupid. Look, nothing is new here. We had food shortages ( 2008 rice, 2020 everything ) already. We already had $150 oil that crushed the economy. We already had global droughts. We had economic collapses in 1929, 1971 and 2008. We are still in the 2008 Depression, and THAT is what worries me.

*

Because we never fixed the Depression. WWII fixed the first Depression. Turning on the credit and currency spigots “fixed” the 1970’s Depression. Which indirectly caused the 2008 Depression. And then, we ONLY doubled down on the Derivatives bets to “recover”, which made the 2019 collapse far worse than it should have been. The 1920’s Oil Glut caused the first Depression, the 1970’s domestic Peak Oil killed our global Industrial Age economy, and the 2005 global Peak CONVENTIONAL Oil caused the 2008 Depression. I know, I just gave you other causes previously. But lack of oil forces economic solutions to fail. As long as you have energy, you can cheat financially. Come energy decline, all those cheats kick you in the ass. The end of Fracking Oil in 2019 uncovered the global rotted financial shenanigans.

*

We were able to “cheat” with derivatives because of the fracking oil. But fracking oil can be as bad as a 1:2 net energy return. Our economy limps along on a return of 1:10. One unit invested to deliver two units is actually a loss, because we are drawing down infrastructure already created. So the ten years “recovery” using fracking oil was never a cure, only a Kick The Can. Don’t blame Trump or Biden. The cards were stacked against them. Blame every stupid ass, which probably includes you and I, who ever thought a finite resource was a good place to bet on.

*

What is that house purchase, what is the reliance on Social Security, what is an auto dependence, but a bet on Forever Oil? The chickens have come home to roost. I need you to think about 2019 and Corona this way. It was an economic collapse WHILE IN THE MIDDLE OF ANOTHER ECONOMIC COLLAPSE. Get it? We had an economic collapse caused by an energy contraction, we only papered it over by blatant central bank manipulations, and those finally went sour by another energy contraction AND the covering financial solutions going bad. Our only choice to buy a smidgen more time was to kill the 70% Consumer Economy.

*

And what we are looking at now is that time running out. Despite the bankers hiding all the indicators we used to detect the 2007/2008 collapse, it is getting hard to ignore the banking system, AGAIN, less than two years later, having another liquidity crisis ( look up Interest Rate Swaps if you want to hurt your brain. It is at a minimum a $300 TRILLION failing leverage bet ). The last one emptied the store shelves. Now, add in a minimum of 2,000% COMPLETE money supply creation last year, to the derivatives doubled down on. This is all happening now, several crisis simultaneously. Each one worse than the last. Because each derivatives failure since the 1980’s was an exponentially worse failure. The last one almost killed the global economy. Now, exponential that to this.

*

Now, because you think I’m exaggerating, ask yourself this. If I am wrong, why is the complete political organization of the western world going Full Retard? You can’t blame this just on Biden. Every western nation government is trying to keep administering coup de grace’s to the back of the head of their economy. It is allowing rampaging Muzzies free autonomy to kill and burn, or opening borders, or adding more debt after they couldn’t pay the old loans, or just adding more Corona lock downs. We have collectively lost our friggin minds. Why?

*

Don’t you think it is because they ARE aware of how bad things are? Perhaps they know that the lock down semi trucks were cannibalized for parts, and the next empty shelves will see a greatly reduced truck fleet unable to respond to increased demand. Perhaps they know that the grid keeps going down not because of “da weather” but because of computer chip failures. Perhaps they know the US oil supply is down 50% and tanks should start to go dry, soon.

*

Perhaps they know Saudi is completely in the Russia/China camp now and the western world is now down 10% in total supply, just from that one source. Perhaps they know there is no gold or silver in London to prop up the Paper Precious Metals, which gave the illusion of Dollar strength. Perhaps they know the economy of the western world is ALREADY freezing up. If we didn’t recover twelve years ago, and we are ten times worse off financially now, PLUS have a lot less oil, how does any of this have a happy ending?

*

And that is JUST economics and eneregy. Now consider your glorious leaders. They want you to fight each other, rather than string them up from a lamppost. If they know the center cannot hold, that the famines and diseases ( no Chinese meds, right? Partially staffed going bankrupt hospitals, remember? ) are guaranteed, how could they NOT turn us against each other? Do you think Diversity Hire Girl is so stupid she cannot guess she is Target #1 come collapse? She is dumber than a box of blondes, but she is cunning enough to know that much.

*

Joe, well, he has no idea what year it is, or what his name is, or who that strange women who keeps insisting she is a doctor is. Even if the crowds lynched him, I don’t think he’d know enough to be frightened. And that wouldn’t be very satisfactory for a blood crazed crowd, who WILL take out as many of the leaders who caused this mess as possible, before they themselves starve. So our glorious democratically elected officials WILL make sure we have a target besides themselves. It will be Red and Blues, and White and Black. And that is just the obvious enemies.

*

Remember, the Whites couldn’t beat the Reds in Russia, having no unifying goals other than Anyone But Lenin. And that was a battle for a resource rich country. Not only do neither side have real unity of the factions, there is nothing to win in the coming war. This is going to be a god awful mess, and over stocking food is JUST the first problem to be overcome. But NOT having too much food means you cannot solve any other problem. You can die for Das Homeland hungry, or you can die with a full belly. Your choice.

*

I told you all the end of 2019 that the economy was down, that we were repeating 2008. I had no idea the course of events, but I was right about the trigger. I knew it would be bad, but had no idea how bad it was going to get. Now, if I’m right again about generalities, but am once against UNDER betting on the severity, after you’ve read all of the above, can’t you guess perhaps it would behoove you to light your hair on fire and act accordingly? I’m NOT a prophet. I just don’t think obvious visible trend lines should be ignored or dismissed with a helping of optimism.

*

You don’t feed seven billion with oil, and still feed them as the oil supply contracts. It is as easy and simply as that. We are just arguing over the time line. This is nothing new, other than in its seemingly more obvious end of the line. Sure, I could be wrong. But I’m not telling you to spend the rent on food. I’m telling you to NOT burn any bridge, but to pay as much as you can because you should be panicking. Pay until it hurts, but not to the point it is a bet you cannot lose. I’d rather deplete my savings and be wrong and have to start saving again, than be right and without enough food.

Ammo Shortages And Strategy

If you have been going along with the End Of Corona celebrations, you are certainly not alone. I’m actually thankful that the communists are allowing me to live a little longer, by not having to wear a mask that restricts my breathing and makes my main intake lung waste excretions. I will say, even though the dingus lickers in Las Vegas have technically turned us into a Blue State, the rest outside that metro area is pretty solidly Red, and the Democrat governor could have been a LOT worse. He could have been as bad as the last RINO governor ( may his putrid soul rot in the lower depths of Hell for all eternity ).

*

I just want to be the first to tell you, congratulations, have a beer for me, and now wake the hump up, Nancy Boy. Things just got WORSE, not better, at the end of the PlanDemic. The Corona was a cover for the September 2019 Banker Liquidity Crisis, brought about by the peak of Fracking Oil, nothing more and nothing less ( yes, I submit to you we could have bio-attacked China, or they us, but the simplest explanation that Follows The Money is Banker Scum ). The Corona was a kick the can down the road, freezing resource use, from resources we didn’t have.

*

It didn’t work. Compliance was crap, and everybody still wanted to engage in Forever Happy Motoring ( wonder why US Ally Taiwan, with 70% of the globes computer chips, is having problems supplying chips, 18 months later? Could it be, another way to drastically shrink the fleet of vehicles that needs fracking fuel we don’t have, hmmm? ). Corona was MEANT to crush the economy, in popular perception. But it didn’t work. Now Biden is here, meaning we can blame everything to come on an Alzheimer's Andy. We don’t need Corona anymore.

*

I’ll be the first to admit, I thought Biden’s fake election was to pacify the Mostly Peaceful Protesters. I thought Diversity Girl would already be in office. I had little idea, at first, that Biden HAD to be elected, to cover the collapse. Again, Follow The Mother Humpin Money. This isn’t your fake politics, both parties run by the same elite, when communism is a False Flag ( not to say we haven’t segregated. We have. If YOU haven’t, get the hell out of that Blue Enclave, ya dumb ass. No one thinks this real estate bubble will last ). This is about money, the ONLY thing our Betters care about.

*

You might have already had your upper elite flee to New Zealand or Switzerland, but all the lower rungs have a vested interest in keeping the attention solidly away from themselves as we have no choice but to collapse ( if any of you alternate energy pukes think we can have a functioning economy-which includes shipping crap around-on four to ten million LESS barrels of oil a day, you are delusional ). We must have the Divide And Conquer paradigm ( in existence for near sixty years ) ratcheted up to eleven. In the long run, Defund The Po-Leece is about saving local government, but in the short run it is about turning us against each other. As is Black Innocent/White Guilty persecutions.

*

Since the collapse is baked into the cake, and you’ve already been served your portion at the Kiddy Table, you can forget about The Economic Collapse. That is done. The only thing you can do about it, the only thing you SHOULD be doing about it, is buying food. Forget Prepper Food. Buy all the grocery store food that you can, immediately. Shelf stable foods for the bulk of your calories. Calories that will give you the energy to keep gardening, hunting, trapping and scrounging. White flour or white rice will kill you if that is all you eat, but it will also give you the immediately needed energy to pick wild plants for vitamins and enzymes, and build a chicken coop out of your garage for some protein.

*

If I hear one of you say, I don’t have the room for storage food, I will crap blood into my whitey tighties. OF COURSE you have the room! I have a years calories from flour and sugar on just five book shelves in my home office ( yes, I only partially part the blinds, so no one sees it. I still get enough sunshine in, to retain sanity and eyesight ). And that is JUST supplemental food for breakfast and lunch. I’m poor as hump, and I did that the last year pinching my grocery budget money. Store whatever strikes your fancy, from oatmeal to rice. I’m smarter than you, and store the tastiest AND cheapest, but to each their own.

*

What you lack is not storage space, but the will to sacrifice a room in your House And Garden showcase to turn over to food storage. Stop Half Assing it. Did you not get the memo that the economy collapsed? And make sure your cat has a run of the room, for rodent control. Mice are nasty creatures, but they are also more tenacious than a three hundred pound gal at the end of the line into the bakery, with a free coupon. Cat food is cheap, legions of asswhores are abandoning pets because they cannot even take care of themselves, and cats were domesticated for one reason.

*

It wasn’t because they had good attitudes. It was because they are great at hunting and killing small game ( do NOT starve your cat. A well fed cat will hunt and kill for the sheer joy, and if they are well fed they have the energy to hunt BETTER ). Ask anyone in Europe if killing cats so they cannot kill flea carriers is a good idea. Oh, wait, they are all dead from bubonic plague ( actually, cats avoid rats, because then the cats get their asses kicked. Those little terrier dogs love to kill rats, and are rat killing machines. Put it this way. A trained rat dog will kill rats with more enthusiasm than licking their balls ).

*

Food is NOT expensive. Yet. It will be. If you aren’t a dumbass, and only store what you eat and eat what you store ( which ain’t MRE’s. Just saying ), and you buy the ever living crap out of food NOW, you also have a nice little hedge against inflation in food prices. Right now, all the fools who think the dollar or dollar denominated crypto’s will retain any value are buying financial assets such as tech stocks that rely on those computer chips we don’t have. Once a few smarter of those actually want to revert to physical assets, and that WILL happen as sure as the sun rises from the east every morning, all that fed inflation, the HUNDREDS of trillions, will move into things like food.

*

Especially as food is sold to China, as crop failures become normal and as we see a further break down in supply chains ( the cyber attacks are from us, not Russia, and they are being used to mask the supply chain break down. Food can’t get to your grocer is just a Continental Pipeline event away ), AND as the race war goes kinetic. One of these days, the Postal factory will become the Postal neighborhood or ghetto. I can HOPE not, but I can guarantee you that It Is All About The Food.

*

Now, in case you kind of missed it, in case you just used the Short Bus as your public transportation mode, I think food is about ten to twenty times as important as guns and ammo, and in case you missed how much I value guns and ammo, did I mention that the collapse is already here? In a collapse of civilization ( THAT is what we are ultimately looking at, NOT just an economic collapse ), you see a ninety percent die-off, as a starting point. It happened to Rome ( they had no where to go, as the continent had soil degradation issues, so where else COULD they go but six feet under? OF COURSE I want guns and guns accessories. Duh ).

*

I’m not some organic feed pellet soy eater who hugs trees and wants to just get along with everybody. I know that with lots of food, and lots of guns, I’m STILL probably going to die. I just want the chance to attempt to avoid what is a high probability event. And I have dedicated a lot more time and energy and discipline to prepping than most people. As a percentage of income, I’ve probably outspent most people. A particularly vicious ex-wife taught me very early how to live on almost nothing, and I’ve kept living on almost nothing so all my money could go to preps.

*

I also probably have more ammunition than most of you, and fewer guns. Because guns are going to be everywhere, and ammunition will NOT. Ammunition is always the weak link to using firearms, and while smokeless powder made every swinging civilian dingus a very capable militiaman, it also made us very dependent on centralized civilization to provide us with that ammunition. THAT is the ultimate gun control, and if you didn’t learn that lesson in the last year plus, I hold zero hope for your survival. I MIGHT not be part of that possible ten percent of survivors, but you DEFINITELY will not be.

*

You can, given enough surplus nitrates you can spare from fertilizer, perhaps make your own black powder. Smokeless, not so much. Smokeless primers? No way. Notice what is THE most in shortages in the ammunition components? Primers. You can downsize your battle rifle to shoot carbine rounds, stretching out your powder and brass, but you need those primers and there isn’t any short cut there. I would say I hate to tell you this, but actually, I’m LOVING it. Here goes. Ready? You Cannot Own Semi Automatic Weapons During An Ammo Shortage.

*

Stop! I want you to understand a very simple thing. A female cannot act like a male, physically. Are we agreed? A typical slightly built average male off the street can usually outperform a female after she went through training and a specialized diet. A diet unsustainable in an era of failing crop outputs and increased population. A young female recruit has the bones and ligaments of a fifty year old man. Bitches be different.

*

Now, after that, can you sit there and tell me that you can change your physical chemistry through willpower? If a female cannot will greater performance from a substandard body, can a male do the same thing? I’m NOT talking about forcing the last reserves of energy after your mind is fatigued. I am saying, can you mentally change what is physically impossible? Of course you cannot. And guess what. Your brain physically produces chemicals under stress. Adrenaline being one. And when that happens, your performance is altered.

*

If you have a semi-automatic weapon, 99 times out of a hundred, you will jerk the crap out of your trigger, to produce the maximum amount of lead downrange to neutralize the threat to your life. Your body WILL protect itself, and it gives Crap One about your logistics trail. Or, lack thereof. You have brain secretions, that you have no control over ( how much control over your sex drive did you have? ), doing this. I’m am NOT saying training, long extensive and expensive training, or experience will not cure this. It will. I am saying that almost none of you have that extensive training. I know I sure as hell didn’t, and I was in a combat arm. As a result, I dismiss the use of semi-automatic weapons for survivalism. I own none.

*

I owned none twenty-five years prior to Corona and the current ammunition shortage. Don’t take that the wrong way. I LOVE semi-automatic weapons. I love fully automatic weapons. I want both. But I cannot have either. Because food is so much more important than guns, as important as guns are, and since it is all about the food, I have to prioritize. I cannot be a Spray And Pray’er. I cannot yell, Cover Me, as I assault a building in lustful Ninja glee, or Berserker rage. I was reduced to relying on guerrilla warfare and living in less populated areas. And now that I’m old, thank goodness for my previous poverty.

*

Because guerrilla warfare is not only safer, and more effective, and uses a heck of a lot less ammunition, you have no other choice once you age. Because, super deluxe moron, you cannot change your body by desire, what your body cannot do. You WILL lose muscle mass and endurance for the simple reason that you lose testosterone, while you age. And if you take any of that snake oil crap to Boost Production, I’d wager a jelly filled donut that you will destroy your organs in the process ( what part of Snake Oil Medicine didn’t you understand? ).

*

If you did not pallet buy ammunition before the current shortage, I don’t think you possess the ability to fight an Industrial Age war, wasting ammunition as a matter of course. Let me explain that Assault Weapon concept to you, again. The Nazi’s, like most other resource poor counties, had riflemen trained as marksmen, to act as infantrymen. They didn’t waste ammunition as much as aim it ( the Brits loved their volume fire, but still valued marksmanship. The Americans trained in Basic as marksmen, and then retrained in combat theaters to waste the ever loving crap out of ammunition, blasting the landscape away as a defensive measure. But they had the resources to continually supply that ammo, where few others did ).

*

The Germans did NOT go to an assault carbine to waste ammunition. They COULDN’T. Not that late in the war. What they were forced into doing was replacing all the finally expended Mauser stockpiles after two world wars. They were running out of rifles, both for regular troops and the Das Homeland troops soon to be. The Germans were already transitioned to cheaper produced small arms, and the Assault weapons were the end result. They could be produced so much cheaper and faster and with less resources than the older tech rifles.

*

The increased magazines did not translate into increased ammunition expenditure. The carbine round was half the battle rifle round, again, to reduce resource use. Troops were still expected to be marksmen, and if they used up too much ammunition the now decreased logistics train ( because now they had TWICE the ammunition ) would soon modify that behavior. It wasn’t about MORE firing, it was about needing to resupply less, AND cheaper to replace arms. Only Americans had the embarrassing glut of resources to waste ammunition.

*

You perhaps recall why the Japanese lost in 1942, despite fighting on? They lost those vital aircraft carriers they simply could not replace. THAT is what resource scarcity looks like in the real, non-American world. Now, knowing every excuse in the book you will throw at me, because you HAVE used them all to no avail, I imagine you are going to say something like, gee, I understand the Legions Of Saint George Floyd are now on the warpath and I know I must Ammo Up and I’m selling extra guns and I want to own a minimum of 15k rounds of ammo per type of semi-auto carbine and I’m selling my RV ( due to high demand ) to get even more money and where do I sign up?

*

And I say, go find some. Even if you have both moved out of the worst Blue zones ( I know, it might be impossible to move out of ALL of them ) and stocked the crap out of food, because location, location, location and FOOD as Priority One, you still might not be able to find what you want or need. And realistically, 99% of all wives out there, even Survivalist Wives, are not going to allow you to wantonly piss away money on ammo and mags anyway. The odds are most of you, even with supply AND budget, STILL cannot practice enough and also stock enough for the apocalypse. Which follows Mostly Peaceful Protests, the boogaloo, AND Bosnia/Rwanda. That is a LOT of ammo you’ll need.

*

Again, the Great Depression was caused by the bankers, but it would have been been almost as bad otherwise, because you had a Petroleum AND Industrializing Glut. You had overproduction and falling wages due to Farm-To-Factory. The only way to stop the Great Depression was to set fire to everything in overproduction, which we did through Lend Lease and a massive global size war which was literally fought by shoving material at the enemy ( lots kinetic, lots of the delivery vehicles for those ). We WANTED the sea beds littered with hundreds of cargo ships and war ships. We WANTED every infantryman to fire dozens of rounds where one used to suffice ( the War Of Northern Aggression was in some ways fought similarly, but of course within the limitations of the day as a Coal Powered military ).

*

Vietnam was about one thing, and that was a duplication of WWII, to revive a failing economy. We dropped more bombs in JUST neutral countries in southeast Asia than we did in all of WWII. Because we couldn’t sink enough ships to save the Military Industrial Economy ( remember, we were also starting the Welfare state AND maxing out nuclear war infrastructure at the same time, so we were going Full Retard on Industrial Goods To Be Destroyed ), we filled the air in the South with helicopters and the North with bombers. By this time, assault carbines were made for the explicit purpose of wasting ammunition.

*

Our military has been there since 1861 to waste factory goods, to enrich all those profiting off the Industrial/Oil Ages. But that lasted only 110 years. By the end of Vietnam, we had used up and destroyed our Industrial Military. Destroyed not as in “goody, we get to replace those units at Cost Plus”, but as in an institution that was no longer able to be financed and maintained. Fully automated weapons were always predicated on their replacement ability. And semi-automatic has always just been about a smaller version of automatic weapons.

*

At least with full auto you have the weapon weight or the stability of a vehicle mount to really aim the rounds. With semi, you pretty much waste them all, unless you are highly trained at doing otherwise. Anyone can go down to Home Despot and buy lumber and half ass build something. But it takes a carpenter to build it well and correct. Buying a semi-auto is just you going to the lumber store. It does NOT confer any talent upon you. For that you need an ammo budget almost none of you have. What I am saying is that you must fight with what you have, not with what you want to be. I’d love to be a carpenter, but have no inclination to practice and invest in that skill set. So my crap is out of plumb and has the crooked ends of nails mashed into the soft crap pine.

*

I would love to have semi-auto weapons, but without training I’d waste 90% of the rounds. Which I cannot afford to stockpile anyway. And I know my marksmanship training would follow the 80/20 rule. I’d spend 80% more and only gain 20% more proficiency. But that is just me understanding my limitations. Look, just go and play a game of paintball. You’ll find out in one afternoon and probably under $100 how quick you’ll blow through ammunition under close enough ( logistically ) to combat conditions, if you don’t want to believe me.

*

After my personal experience in the above, I even tried to find out if anyone even played with the older style guns that had to be manually loaded each round, and found nothing. Of course, that was twenty five years ago, and Wal-Mart didn’t carry them back then. I have no idea if you could compare the two types in practice. I think, if you could, you’ll find my theory to be sound that manual reloading forces you to slow down and aim, and semi auto encourages you to fire even faster. I submit to you that under stress, a bolt action ( I’ll just use that, knowing other have pumps or levels, as shorthand ) FORCES you to aim.

*

Your Lizard Brain, the primitive selfish part of your brain ONLY concerned with your personal welfare ( as opposed to your Monkey Mind, that socializing part that pretty much runs the show, because Tribal. The part that makes you show off in front of the other monkey’s for Group Status Points, like claiming a semi-auto makes you a studly warrior king ) is in charge of keeping you in the gene pool. With a semi auto, Lizard Brain is screaming to shoot faster, ever faster, to save his hide. You spasmodically jerk the trigger, because you were mostly trained by Hollywood and you know enough bullets equals hits. With a bolt action, your Lizard Brain is screaming at you to Make This Shot Count, because you only have one shot, because Hollywood trains you that if you must stop jerking the trigger to reload, the More Bullets guy will kill you.

*

In the universe of Gun Fu, all the cool kids win by calmly, ever so calmly, shooting a million rounds down range, all oh so carefully placed. And if you can be that well trained guy, well, you go, boyo. More power to you. Back in the real world, none of us are that well trained or experienced. And if you are, you are STILL an idiot. Because you will be placing yourself in harms way to fight like that. You are fighting like a soldier. You are fighting in a shield wall or a musketry line. And while that sounds cool in fiction, it is placing your body in harms way, you are hoping Lady Lucks finds you so irresistible and well hung ( sorry, guys, you need girth more than length. I’ve had plenty of “ouch, you’re bottoming out”, which is not the same as “ouch, stop trying to stuff that in” ) she will favor you.

*

All the cool American kids wanted to play Indian in the woods, from personal experience understanding what a superior mode of fighting that was. Meanwhile, George Washington, wooden teeth prick who started out sucking up to the Brits, wanted his men to fight just like the Bestest Super power Of The Day, lining up and firing at each other in rank and file. Because by wasting Continental lives, he was proving he was just as good as any European power. If you’ve ever been in the military, all your officers had this sneering class distinction attitude. The Dirt People are only good enough to be cannon fodder.

*

Don’t fight like they want you to fight. Not only is it the wrong way to fight, it isn’t very successful. In the end, the government always wins, on a pile of bodies. Fight like an Indian, like a guerrilla. Ancient warfare, tribal warfare, was guerrilla warfare- the ambush and fighting dirty, with no personal daring do deeds to prove heroism, the preferred tactic. Yeah, it takes balls just to get close to the enemy. You don’t have to prove yourself beyond that. Fight to win, not to be a heroic soldier. It is after all your life.

*

And, I submit to you, the best way to fight to win is to fight with modern weapons. Compared to crossbows, swords or black powder muskets, even a rimfire is preferable to fighting close and/or in the open. The longer you can stay stocked in modern smokeless weapons, AND using guerrilla warfare, the better your odds are of surviving ( or, your descendants. Don’t use up all the ammo yourself, you selfish prick ). And the best way to conserve your ammunition is with bolt action rifles.

*

Now, I don’t expect you to run out and buy a bolt action. Number one, good luck finding it. Or its ammunition. Number two, most likely you already have a semi-auto. And number three, did I mention the ammo? But you CAN have a bolt action AK-47 or AR-15. I grant you, they kind of suck as bolt actions. That isn’t how they were designed. But they will do, and do nicely, most likely. If the alternative is that you don’t have enough ammunition to use them as they WERE designed.

*

If you have an AK, just search for “disable the AK gas system”, or perhaps “SKS” instead. I was instructed on this possibility using an SKS, but imagine you are right in the ball park with an AK. But this was also long ago and I never wrote down the instructions, no longer having the SKS and always being a very poor researcher or record keeper. I understand the Yugo SKS had an option of turning it off, so as to use a grenade launcher, but it has been too long since I researched price or availability. I liked the SKS, being poor enough when the Chink ones were as affordable as the Lee-Enfield, but I don’t believe either are now.

*

I have been armed with the Lee-Enfield for a long time, but they are no longer affordable. Those left are crap quality and collector prices. I think they are THE premier apocalypse rifle, build as a tank, and being a battle rifle ( but also able to be a carbine. Look up “The Load”, which is using Red Dot shotgun powder to fill up the case while using a pistol size cast bullet ). But for the crime and boogaloo, since I had the extra at the time, I invested in the AR-15. I’ll use that until it is time to go post-apocalypse and I have my beloved bayonet and buttstroking options.

*

You can buy a $60 gas adjustment tool to install on your AR. I couldn’t de-pin the damn front sight, so I was unable to use that. BUT! You can far more easily punch out the gas tube. Take the tube, and reverse the S shape of it using a clamp and hand pressure. Now, reinstall using a new pin ( shop for affordable AR parts at Primary Arms dotcom ), and the gas hole is now facing up rather than down over the hole in the barrel. NEVER, ever re-bend and re-use that tube for semi-auto firing. Buy a new tube for $8. Reusing the old one, since it was bent, it most likely blows up on you.

*

Anyway, now you have a bolt action AR. Buy a spare charging handle or two, as you will be using the heck out of it. Still, with a pin, a tube AND a couple of extra charging handles, it is still much cheaper than an adjustable gas port. Yes, you must take the rifle off your shoulder to work the action. So what? I do the same with the Enfield. And the AR has THE best cheek weld under speed I’ve ever encountered, myself. And now I have a modern gun, easily worked on with dirt cheap parts for sale ( NOT the case with the Enfield ), but still a bolt action to save me big bucks on ammo.

*

Now, I STILL know what you are thinking. Gee, the ammo shortage will reverse itself, like always. Because, well, that’s what has always happened, and we’ve been in an economic collapse for fifty years, minimum. Well, no, we’ve been in an economic DECLINE for fifty some odd years. And I know I cannot prove that we are now in an actual collapse, but I have to trust that the majority of you know, in your heart of hearts, that this is as true and as plain as the end of your nose. We can argue that the DotCom Bubble was the beginning of the end, or 2008. I like 2005, the global Peak Oil ( conventional oil. Shut up, fracking fags ).

*

It doesn’t matter. The point is that there are no more recessions and then recoveries. There are only stages of collapse, and the only recoveries are as fictional as the Corona “Pandemic”. In a collapse, crap simply just stops working. Like our supply chains. Go out there and try to find some full strength aspirin or AAA batteries under a buck apiece, and tell me our supply chains are recovering. And if you think I’m full of crap over the stress induced firing frenzy with semi-auto weapons, look into the police shootings incidents reports. Professionals ( that ain’t YOU ) under combat lose control and spray and pray. It happens, to better folks than you. Not to be insulting, but almost every one of you is an armchair warrior, not a real one. I’m just being realistic. Are you?

May 2021

TWO GOLDEN RULES

The One Golden Rule In Life is that you should treat people as you wish them to treat you. If you do that, most of the time you will get along with most people. Now, some people will simply just hate you and screw you no matter what. Ex-wives, the government, Liberals and BLM'ers. But by and large, follow the Golden Rule for a happy, or at least happier, life. After the apocalypse, you must modify that slightly. Treat Your Tribe Members As You Wish To Be Treated. If they are not of your tribe, NO! NO! Bad Prepper! You do NOT apply the Golden Rule to them.

*

But Jim, golden haired boy extraordinaire, survivalist gadfly and all around sexy and crazy guy, I must give charity to the unfortunate and save grandma's and children and bosomy blondes of reproductive age! To which I reply, verily, thou are a bigger dumb ass than even Baby Jesus thinks possible ( and he had to put up with Romans ). You be so dumb, you voted for Diversity Hire and Slow Joe ( okay, I'm sorry! Your vote was changed to them. Same difference ). Why are we going to see a collapse? Resource scarcity. What happens during resource scarcity? Yeah, duh. You run out of resources.

*

What do you need to feed people? Food. What is food? A resource. Will food run out if we are running out of resources? Duh. The trend line started way back during the Tortilla Revolution. Look it up. Now, if you cannot feed people, how will they respond? Most of them will employ agents to act on their behalf to kill you and take your food, then eat you. Then fight each other over the two undigested peaces of corn they excreted along with the rest of your flesh.

*

Every single famine in history saw cannibalism. True story. So, right now, right here, slowly digesting your food-like products from McDonald's as you read this, so full your corpulent body is sweating fatty oil in lieu of water, you think I am full of crap. But I'll wager your insane Once In A Species Existence Petroleum Age surplus resources against my Every Single Time In History lesson and wager double or nothing that you are full of crap that you do NOT want to be around this coming famine.

*

If you think people act badly now, because their precious empire is imploding and they cannot eat out 21 times a week but instead must pinch pennies and only eat out 14, or that they are not at the top of their Victimhood List and must make up a gender to pretend to be victimized so they can get some of that sweet government paycheck, you ain't seen nothing yet. Just wait until they get so hungry you start looking like a chicken tender. And you want to save THOSE people? The people who would eat you. The people who would kill you as soon as look at you NOW, while the five thousand calories a day are still flowing, just because your pale existence offends their fantasy microaggression glittery unicorn bubble world. THOSE people?

*

People act poorly during Bad Times, and it is as simple this time as being spoiled from too many Good Times. And all the rational free thinking people see them acting poorly, and they rightly start making Lamp Post Lists. You do NOT want to see my list. Hell, you are probably on it ( to avoid this, subscribe immediately ). But, super bonus time, the good thing about that is you are now justified in treating them poorly. You would NOT want them part of your tribe, and so they become part of the Great Unwashed OTHER. There is your tribe, who you treat as best friends, and All Other, who you fear.

*

And you fear them because they want to hurt you now, during surplus resource times ( it is only Depleting Resources insofar as there is not being enough surplus to continue propping up the economy based on surplus, but still surplus insofar as more than is needed ), simply because they feel they do not have enough surplus. So they judge it acceptable to subjugate and steal from you. If you cannot see this, you are the Weakest Link. Good bye. We'll see your decaying head atop a pike in a communist Autonomous Zone soon enough. Thank you for being stupid enough to fail the Darwin Test, and freeing up resources for us.

*

Throughout history, you have two groups ( even in today's Oil Surplus ). One is The Surplus Group, and other is the Scarcity Group. No one, in the history of man, ever equitably shared. NOT outside their own tribe. You either were Stealing or were Stolen From. Those were your choices. I am SO friggin sorry if that offends your sensibilities. Do you know WHY that offends you? Because you have always been so spoiled, you have no idea that the norm is scarcity. So, please do me a favor, and shut the hump up, you moronic twat.

*

You get to be comfortable as a group, at the expense of another, or you get to be taken advantage of. You get to be the catcher, or the pitcher. You either pick a tribe that will use another, or you get to be used. Your pick. That means you don't get to feel sorry for another tribe. You don't get to share your resources. If a crying baby is hungry, but does not belong to your tribe, and you do NOT need another baby, you do NOT feed that baby. Tribal bitches know this, and will not insist otherwise, and tribal dudes who want to stay in the Alpha position will slap down any stupid bitch who insists on saving that baby.

*

Because ONE calorie given to a stranger is food out of the tribes mouth. And lack of food causes sickness and weakness, which endangers the entire tribe. And if your actions endanger the tribe, YOU must be removed from the tribe. So, pick between saving the baby or saving yourself ( from being licked out of the tribe ). THAT is why you cannot show weakness and help non tribe members. YOU are in danger if you act with kindness. So, yes, it is selfish to hurt or neglect others, if they do not belong to your tribe. And selfishness is a survival mechanism.

*

Every fuzzy foreigner allowed into your tribe is food out of your mouth. If the tribe NEEDS additional manpower, that is acceptable. You share your food to increase your survival odds. But when your tribe is overcrowded, and you are allowing in more people who only weaken you and enrich the few rulers, you are helping to one day starve yourself. This is the position the US is in today. Our energy supply is drastically reduced ( at a time oil is needed to grow food ), our crops are failing due to weather events, even as we allow food to be exported to our supposed nemesis China, and we cannot ship in MORE foreigners quick enough.

*

If you hate immigrants it is not because you are racists, but because you like to eat. It is better that Little Brown People starve over in their native lands than to take food out of your mouth here. Well, the U.S. has NOT been a tribe for a very long time. Stop treating all these douche bags as your tribe members. They self identify with other tribes, and view you as an enemy. Return the favor. And be ready to NOT feed them, when the food supply shortages go Full Retard again. Which they will. And if you don't believe that, if you do not worship at the alter of Malthus, you will soon be dead.

*

Look, it goes like this. The sheep, the idiots buying what Hollywood and Facebook are selling, have a negative chance of survival. They are all assured to die come the collapse. Preppers have about an even chance of survival. They have as good of odds of dying as surviving ( mostly because they prep for disruption rather than destruction ). Survivalists have a slightly better odd of surviving as dying ( just not the 100% odds most think some supplies give them, because their mental outlook is sad and weak ). If you want to up the odds of surviving from “slight” to “better than slight”, you have to do a LOT of things correctly.

*

And I'm going to make that really simple. You must follow Two Golden Rules ( this is Big Picture, 30,000 foot view, megatrend. You still must follow the original Golden Rule for happy harmony within your tribe. I'm talking about interaction with OTHER tribes ). The first Golden Rule is, Avoid Crowds. Thank you, Herr 'Ol Remus, for the best survival Golden Rule ever. It is so simple, the lowest IQ survivalist can follow it. But you need a second Golden Rule, which as far as I know I'm the only one to advance ( outside its original field of anthropology from where I stole it ). It Is All About The Food. It isn't as simple as 'Ol Remus' rule, I grant you. It take nuanced thinking to some degree.

*

But I still submit that the lowest IQ survivalist, even if they must mentally wrestle that pig humper, can soon enough come to understand it. It Is ALL About The Food even covers Avoid Crowds, but if you follow the Crowd Golden Rule FIRST, The Food Golden Rule is a lot easier to implement, so it is far better to leave them two separate rules. FIRST, get the hell away from most people. Then, view everyone, and everything, through the lens of food. And your odds of survival go from Okay to A Lot Better. To get your odds to Almost Perfect, you must retire to a hermitage, but I understand most people cannot do that. I cannot do that, and I'm a lot smarter than most of you when it comes to this specific topic ( I'm dumber than most of you on everything else ).

*

Still, improving your odds of survival from ten percent to thirty percent, perhaps even fifty, is no small feat ( hermitage would be 95%, only detracting points for wild dangerous animals, uncounted on health deterioration or massive natural disasters ). Just remember that the pipe dream certain Idahoan Survival Guru's sold you is a pig in a poke. You do NOT increase your odds of survival buying a concrete bunker atop a hill. You only increase your luxury living which is unsustainable and will kill you soon enough. Yuppie Scum Survival violates the Two Golden Rules.

*

By buying quality food, you ignore quantity, and hence ignore the golden rule It Is All About The Food, because you've endangered your eating in the future. By staying too close to town for shopping, and too close to the grid for Barbie Princess Wife Appeasement, and too close to a driveable road for the other two reason, you have ignored the golden rule of avoiding crowds. You will not suffer any fall in your standard of living, but you did not increase your odds of survival. You've even DECREASED the odds because you lied to yourself about the odds of civilization collapse to keep your yuppie scum dream alive.

*

Now, I said most of us will not get far enough away from crowds, and that is true. You may only do so much if you cannot live in a hermitage. You must do as much as you can, regardless, then focus most of your energy in Food. Don't be distracted by grandiose visions of a perfect survival retreat, or small town, or homestead. These are, today, largely fantasy as we are in a state of flux with the Red Forces fleeing Blue America at the exact same time we are experiencing what will probably be the last housing bubble ever ( act swiftly ). Whatever you do, things will change after you move. Just do the best you can and then relax.

*

Staying in too large of a crowd, with lots of food, doesn't work as well. But minimizing crowds and maximizing food is a much better strategy if that is ALL you can do. None of us has unlimited funds, so you minimize danger. Not eliminate, but minimize. But whatever you are doing, you keep the Two Golden Rules firmly in mind. Avoid Crowds. It Is All About The Food. Don't ask what Jesus would do, ask what you should be doing to avoid crowds and to go Full Retard on food. And then friggin do it already. Time is more than likely very short.

( .Y. )

April 2021 Update & Article

 

APRIL 2021 UPDATE & ARTICLE

Going on close to a year now, I do NOT miss the Internet. Other than instructional video's of course. But overall, life in the slower lane is as peaceful and tranquil as is possible in a time of economic and social disintegration. I will NOT be returning to the Internet, either, except in very limited doses. The local library finally reopened, and so I finally have access again to the Internet, but I have zero faith that they will remain open. As goes Federal grants, so goes local services. You might think we will recover, but I emphatically do NOT.

*

But Jim, you stud muffin I yearn to emulate and my wife secretly lusts after, why can't you just use the Internet to earn the extra money until you cannot? Because, everything takes infrastructure. I don't run down to the store to buy CD blanks or envelopes every month to mail my magazine, or to the Post Office for stamps. I buy then in bulk in advance, as we have already had shortages and price increases. I have to invest in physical goods. Your Internet isn't JUST what it costs to connect every month, there is a vulnerable infrastructure behind it.

*

And nothing ever works as it should. It USED to, and if you are old enough you remember when life functioned in accordance to the infrastructure we so dearly purchased a century ago ( from a central bank-which I despise but which was unfortunately needed at one time-to a properly educated workforce ). But nothing works anymore. We can bemoan and belittle, but dysfunctionalism is a sign of collapse, a feature rather than a bug. Just accept it, because it ain't changing. Meaning, everything must be experienced and adjusted and relearned, not just begun as needed.

*

You might have noticed, almost nothing purchased is of adequate quality anymore. No one is trained properly anymore. Again, this is merely a reflection of, proof that we are in collapse. When I was a young idiot, I could write about a theoretical collapse. Now I am writing about a collapse in progress. Thirty years ago, we kicked the can down the road after Color Revolution'ing Russia, using the spoils ( never even a fraction of one percent of the investment in the Cold War were returned to us, but the sad part was that at the time it was still a huge windfall, and looking back, a miracle ) to “recover”.

*

You don't want to believe me that the fracking industry took a big squishy dump and is down for good, that our economy was in trouble two years ago and will not recover this time. You are looking at the replay Fall of 2008, thinking it will lead to a miracle of another can kick. Of course, this is wishful thinking. Yet, if you click your heels together three times and wish for home, you'll return on your glittery unicorn to your middle class Happy Motoring existence. So you keep doing stupid crap like looking for another house to pay for with a mortgage you'll have because your job will never disappear.

*

I'm not going to get into details of the fracking industry or the unemployment numbers. You can subscribe to my CD mailed magazine at barely over a buck an issue for 120 pages ( yes, this is a shameless plug. I want my former blog readers to subscribe to my product. This is a bad thing? You expect to get paid just for showing up to work ) to read more about that. If you cannot see how close we are to the waterfall plunge, nothing I can say is going to change your mind. If you know enough to worry as you've never worried before, I might be able to help.

*

To those NOT worried, you are an idiot but I still love you. To those who have a pulse and two brain cells, I want you to think very hard about junk land. Again. Because too many of you are still paying rent ( a mortgage is still rent, insofar as your vulnerability to losing your shelter come unemployment ). When you pay rent, you are vulnerable to homelessness. I know, a lot of homeless are just drug users or boozers, and are lifestyle choice sufferers. But never romanticize homelessness. A tent is no protection against predators. And without a secure food storage, you have no shelter OR calorie security. The government has the homeless on welfare NOW, but that is ZERO guarantee for the future.

*

Government promises are worth what a cloud of hot air from a liar is worth, absolutely nothing. If you can't touch it, it does not exist as insurance, be that promises of gold from a banker or promises of food from politicians. Likewise, because the Unholy Trinity of the elite consists of the central bank, the government and corporations, the promises of a job are worth the exact same sum, absolutely zero. If you like the feeling of warm moist air blown up your anus, by all means stick around for that. But you cannot take that feeling to any merchant and expect to use it as currency.

*

You already have decades of experience in the lies from employers. Your college degree ain't worth dingus, and if you are a White male you cannot count on employment. And that was BEFORE the Corona Collapse. Even if you were “retrained” in coding, even then you still have no job prospects today. We must have diversity, especially for visas for workers in Silicon Valley. You are racist if you don't give up your employment slot to little brown visitors.

*

Your best bet for future security is NOT to earn more, or move about the country hoping for employment, praying you are the first in line in the convoy of RV's with desperate unemployed suckers all converging on the few jobs open. It is NOT to count on having an Amazon job when you are seventy years old. It is to avoid rent. If you can cash in a IRA and pay off the house, and are comfortable with the property tax, fine. For the rest of you, I'm confused as to why you are still waiting to buy ANY land. Even an RV squat is golden security.

*

Before I'd buy one ounce of gold, I'd buy junk land. What can you do with gold, if the grocery store is closed? What can you do with a nice home, if you've lost your job and cannot pay the mortgage or taxes? Yes, at present you can squat there for a time. That is predicated on government permission, and nothing else, and if you trust the government after the obvious Election Steal, you are a moron ( I'll also be covering, in my magazine, how the election was planned to look exactly like what it was, for reasons other than Red/Blue. Are you SURE you can't afford a $20 external CD data player, and $1.09 plus tip per issue of my magazine? ).

*

Junk land used to go begging for buyers. Over at LandWatch.com they had Under $1k lots in the HUNDREDS of choices. Now? About thirty some odd. E-Bay even still has junk land. You just lost your luxury of choices by waiting so long to buy, as I was long ago advising. But, Jim, junk land SUCKS! Well no friggin crap, Captain Obvious! Of COURSE it sucks. That is why it is so cheap and why it is still for sale. At least for now. What is junk land? It is a legal squat. Nothing more.

*

You want pretty forest views, bubbling brooks, farm land, woodland, pasture land? Well, that is for rich people. Sucks to be you. It never DIDN'T suck to be you, but now you might realize you ain't no damn snowflake. NOW, after all my efforts at enlightenment, you understand you humped yourself by not lowering your expectations. In food, in weapons, in homes. Now your options are severely dwindled. So what? You waited, you get bottom of the barrel. Wait any longer, you get exactly Dingus All. Nothing. Zip. Zero. So shut the hell up and go buy some damn junk land. This is probably your last chance.

*

And guess what? Yes, you might waste your money. Who cares? Insurance is an EXPENSE. It is NOT an investment. If you never move there, you'll at least if nothing else get your money back as the supply shrinks and prices explode upwards. Would that be so surprising? You can barely find silver coins to buy, or wheat, or ammunition ( not as bad as it was, but I'd pay 70cents a round for 223 if I were you, and be thankful it was available. That was SG Ammo. Bulk Ammo has 43cent steel case. I wouldn't wait on ammo, or land, and especially not at all on food. The decline will increase in velocity ). Land will be a commodity folks start throwing inflating money at.

*

Look, I understand you might think you can keep employed, or keep your home, or that the collapse will stay a Severe Decline rather than the end of civilization. I'll admit, as this September will be two years since the Banker Liquidity Crisis, I'm simply amazed we are still functioning as a country. I didn't think we'd hold together so long. But that is NOT proof we will continue to still function. That was just a gift from God to give you enough time to prepare. Don't spit in his face, dithering.

*

It is also proof that you need to keep playing by our Dear Leaders rules. Meaning, buy your own land rather than hoping you won't get harassed by illegally squatting. After the complete collapse, yes, you can live anywhere for the price of a bullet. Before that, you cannot count on the benevolence of others to survive. How did that work out for the seven thousand geriatrics in New York state, at the start of Corona? If you don't think they won't try to kill you ( granted, not directly ), you haven't been paying attention.

*

You know those Jack Booted Thugs we were all spazing out about back in the 90's? If the government is throwing THEM under the bus, what chance do you have of not being screwed? I'm going to repeat my report on the settlement of crack users in Colorado, that area that was written about in the book on RV Homesteading Under $5k ( during the 90's, now I believe out of print for good ). The county Sheriff has No Go areas, where his deputies have been pot shot'ed at. The same with urban ghetto areas. We are already in terminal decline, and here is more proof. So, I guess you COULD illegally squat and keep the law away from you. But is all that bother worth under three grand of junk land insurance?

*

You could easily get killed playing that game. And money will be worthless soon enough. Why not buy land for almost nothing, just in case we see another few years before the complete collapse? Can you guarantee that the cops won't start harassing RV squatters if it makes them money, when they desperately need it? Once the fed money goes, and property tax isn't paid, where else do the cops get funding? If I spent one night in jail, with a big Black buck named Bubba, that would cost MORE than a three grand lot of land ( what is it worth to not get AIDS? ).

*

Right now, you can still find hundreds of lots at Land Watch for under $3k each. Granted, some lots are advertised at that, and are merely click bait for far more expensive properties. Some are just monthly rents. But you'll find that at E-Bay as well. Scammers are everywhere. But, that aside, do you know which state has the most land in that price range? Arkansas. You do NOT have to live in the desert to own junk land. Granted, the lot will be tiny. Who cares? It is legal, it is affordable and it is in the forest.

*

I wouldn't want to live there. There are no jobs and you'll have a good commute to town. Not a In The Desert Hundreds Of Miles To Town Or Water West Texas distances, but perhaps not pedestrian distances. But guess what? It beats living in town, needing to pay rent while unemployed. If you are living in an RV, it beats paying lot rent. You probably won't die there in the winter without electric hook up. So what if you cannot farm. You can't farm renting an apartment.

*

And I think that about covers that. I'll be posting here at least every other month, but I'll shoot for every month, probably the last week of the month ( as long as the library stays open ). And, as usually, here is my information to subscribe to my magazine:

GOV LIES

The wonder isn't that the government lies to us, screws us, yells at us for daring to complain, oh no. The wonder is that we keep falling for the same crap over and over again and then don't take MORE lies into account when planning our futures. The latest lie was Cheap Chinese Manufacturing, or as you all might be more familiar with it, globalism. The deal was ( not that we agreed with it, just that this was the bone they threw us after announcing the latest sexual violation ), we allow all sorts of OtherColors into the country, so that their fellow Little Brown People would then sell us really affordable manufactured goods.

*

Never mind that we only needed affordable goods from elsewhere because we had been screwed on our money and our economy. Most folks first and only exposure to history was that channel they used to have on cable TV ( used to, as I've heard rumblings it is no where close to what it used to be ) that was subtitled The German War History Channel because the footage was from government archives and hence in the public domain-just like the Weather Channel used to be about using free government forecasting data before their mission changed to the Gore Warming Channel.

*

Some weird deluded strange malformed people think the whole world can be explained by math ( although that sounds like Job Security to me ), and if that is so I, like most of my disgruntled fellows, have zero clue about life because I did just enough work in math to get a D-, hence credit for a required class. To think I learned or retained anything is hilarious. That is what history is like to most people. If it isn't a tank battle in Russia, when commies were automatically good instead of evil, they have no clue about history. Which means they don't know Crap from Shinola.

*

Come on over to America, you'll get land! Oops, sorry about killing you off from too much dangerous work and not enough food while you were finishing off your indentured service. Be cannon fodder for this really skeevy royalist elitist asswhipe with wooden teeth, and you'll get land! Oops! Our bad, homey, we kind of screwed you with hyperinflation, which we used as an excuse for federalism disguised as a Constitution, and you sold us that land deed for pennies on the dollar ( that's if we didn't shoot you for “desertion” after your agreed upon term was up or after we refused to pay you so your family starved ).

*

Okay, Southern Dudes, you can have slavery, there it is protected by your new wonderful Constitution, all you have to do is join our Union. Oops, who would have thought you couldn't leave that union when we de facto outlawed slavery. Sorry, but our bought and paid for lawyer is going to proclaim that illegal. You don't mind paying taxes to build that railroad, do you? After all, wave of the future, cheap Eastern coast manufactured goods, no more Donner Parties. Oops! Silly us, we let the railroads screw you on fares. You don't mind, do you? Capitalism, you know.

*

Well, 90% Protestant population, you don't mind if we bring over some Irish Catholics, do you? They are starving, don't you know. Humanitarian mission. Oops, sorry, Paddy, you have to work for even less money now, but look at the bright side as you'll be starving in America rather than Ireland, because we want to free the Darkies and let him compete for your jobs. Oops, sorry Protestant America, but since those Irish worked out so well, here is 30% of your population from Mexico!

*

Well, that Capitalist President didn't work out so well stopping the Depression we started ( like the one we used to justify the Federal Reserve Bank ), so here you are, a communist President. Oops! Sorry about him confiscating all your gold days after his inauguration. You don't mind, right? After all, there isn't any inflation. We promise, it will cure the Depression. OOPS! Holy crap, dudes, who would have thought we'd turn right around and devalue that paper currency 40%! Oh, crap, what's this? Taking your gold didn't work? Well, aren't you a bunch of lazy bastards, refusing to work during this continuing Depression! You can just starve, no welfare for you!

*

Why won't you all follow the Presidents dictates so we can end this Depression? Well, if you're not going to help, there! There's a few thousand dead sailors for you, now join the draft so you can be one of the other half million casualties. Don't blame us boycotting Japan, it is all her fault! And Germany's, somehow. Don't question your betters. The Elite know what is good for you as they went to Yale. If you fight, we'll let you have a Union job. Honest. Have we ever lied to you before?

*

Jesus, dudes! These Union jobs are REALLY cutting into the hooker and blow fund. Can't you work for less? No, well then screw you! Here's some Mexican workers, here's some Black workers and here's some female workers! Now try saving your Unions! Hey, Black Folk, want to earn a lot of money at a Union factory job? Just move to the city! Oops! Sorry about that, we're letting Japan make the cars now. No more jobs for you, and stay in that ghetto where you belong!

*

Oops! What's that wounded and PTSD veterans of the war? You don't want to give up those Union jobs to your enemies? Well, hump you! You wanted too much for your pay. It is your fault for being greedy. Suck it up, AGAIN, buttercup. Weren't you about to retire anyway? OOPS! Sorry about that pension being inflated away. Totally our fault. Wait a second while we completely halt the economy to halve inflation. Awww, much better! Greedy retailers, damn you for charging too much! It will serve them right to just let a few corporations take over that sector. What's that middle class dude? That is your livlihood? Can't you learn to code? Oh, yeah, and Capitalism's Creative Destruction!

*

What's that? Why aren't select industries subjected to those same market forces? Well, you know, national security! And we can't have those Too Big To Fail banks losing any profit! What's that, dude dying of cancer? Well, it's hardly OUR fault we had to test those bombs to make sure we could protect America, now is it? Oh, and you'll be arrested if you try herbal or natural remedies to cure yourself, just a little FYI. Only toxic radiation ( more hair of the dog! ) or Chemotherapy for you! And if you do want a simple operation to remove the tumor, please ignore the fact more people die on the operating table than from drunk driving!

*

Why are so many folks dying on the roads? Well, EVERYONE must get a drivers license, even illegal aliens. How else do we support the Japanese car makers? Oh, and Korean ones also, in case Detroit even thinks about a recovery. Well, it's not OUR fault the local governments zoned all former farmland for suburban development! We didn't have as many war casualties as we expected, we were going on the Soviet model, given how our generals were just as incompetent and used the same tactics. I guess all that war production flood really did trade bullets for bodies. A bit of blowback, enriching that industry. Don't worry, the next war none of our weapons will stop the body count of our men or the enemies. And we'll only charge twenty times what they are worth, when they are working.

*

What's this, war veteran of the Conflict To Secure A Middle East Base Mere Days After The Soviet Union Collapsing? You say anthrax vaccinations are killing you? Unpossible! It can only be burning oil. You know, because we had the exact same thing in polluted cities prior to catalytic converters. And you thought the radioactive fallout killed everyone! What's this, disgruntled service worker who can't find a manufacturing job, and now we've shut down all the stores as well? You are part of the Patriarchy, and Caucasian as well, sorry. Your efforts building the country, and getting screwed for it, are not recognized. Either learn to code, or be a nurse.

*

Oops! What's this? The coding jobs are given to Dot Not Feather Indians and the nursing jobs go to Haitians and Hondurans? How is that OUR fault? Free market, and War Refugees, totally out of our control, sorry. Those Indians? Well, we must placate them so that India can take over manufacturing from China! Yeah, that was the plan, all along! More Mexicans imported with a 50% unemployment rate? Well, you know, Mexican factories, as well!

*

What do you mean, we see 70k a year deaths from the normal flu, and another 30k from driving fatalities and we left the economy running? No, you don't understand, as soon as the number goes over that, it is officially a pandemic! We HAVE to close everything down! Why aren't you coding, if you want a job? We gave you plenty of warning, didn't we? Ingrates! I suppose next you'll want us to stop the Negroes attacking you in the suburbs, right? Oops, sorry! Tax revenues are down from us closing the economy, so the police are short handed!

*

This economic collapse didn't just happen. It started four hundred years ago, when population growth and strip mining resources became the basis of our economy. You know, like every other economy ever. We did nothing different except have a lot better pool of resources to begin with, and in our backyard ( until 1945 ) so the cost of administrating colonies wasn't a factor. That alone, domestic resource glut, would have guaranteed our economic lead at the table over the European powers in the long run. There was really little need to take over half of the globe to do so.

*

Just as the day you are born, you start to die, so too with organizations, countries and empires. The writing has always been on the wall. Some folks just need extra hits over the head with a hammer to get it. Some folks will be sitting on a post-apocalypse sharpened stake, impaled, still not having a clue that growth and riches are just a passing phase. Most folks are far too ignorant, wallowing in their own filth of consciousness, to understand that what they are doing is directly detrimental to their own long term success. We are all, mostly, chimps picking lice off our own ass, wanting them to stay there because they are yummy snacks.

The day the US oil production peaked in 1971, the day we all heard the sucking sound of jobs being exported when Clinton was elected, the day the next borrowed hundred billion put us over the threshold of the ability of ever being paid back, the day the immigration bill opening the Turd World was passed, all these were the day our death was announced, if you had been listening. And when the powers that be see the death of their system staring at them ( or, let's face facts, even when all they have ahead of them is growth. ALL the time, in other words ) in the face, their de facto response is to screw everyone or each other over, hard and fast. The government was lying when we were mere colonists, the government and companies were lying before we even formed the Constitution, and the government, corporations and the bankers were lying through the Oil Age and after its demise.

*

Screwing people is just a form of resource extraction, and obviously you cannot screw people over by telling them the truth. You must lie to them. When credit creation inflates a Wall street bubble, you don't say, ah, hey there dudes, the stock market is going to blow. You say, Best Economy Ever ( that is Trumps line, in case any of you Orange Man Fans missed it. I don't deny Trump is good as Anyone But Hillary. But he is just as much A Lying Liar as Obammy, FDR or Lincoln ever was ) just when This Suckers Going Down.

*

I don't even know why I get mad when the media lies. They have lied all my life, all your life and all our grandpappy's lives. They are required to lie or they don't get a free pass to operate from the bankers and government. All these businesses that are getting their business licenses revoked if they don't play along with Corona Death, when a license was only ever supposed to be a tax in reality and a form of consumer protection as an excuse? You don't think the media isn't under similar pressure to conform to the lies?

*

I get peeved at the media, but why did I EVER expect them to not tell lies? Am I mad at myself for believing? No. I'm mad they won't even report events transpiring so that I might read between the lines of lies. They are no longer just Pravda, no longer just propaganda. Now they are the Memory Hole. They have become a news black hole, as nothing is reported. The surface lies don't cover 99% of what events transpired. The nearly fifteen year old economic collapse has killed almost all news, analysis or even data access.

*

Whenever the government, corporations or bankers ( which is why I detest any news from The Federal Reserve or Goldman Saks or Chase or whoever-any forecast or report is Pure D horse apples ) communicate with you, it is almost always a guarandamn-teed Gott Damn lie. And it is a lie because they are fixing to screw you. Or already have and wish to hide that fact. They lie about each other as combat ( say, the focus on molestation by the church, as a part of discrediting religion in general, and to get the Pope 100% behind Political Correctness as a payoff to de-focus ).

*

Why wouldn't they lie to you or about you as profit or control? If you don't assume everything everyone tells you is a lie, you are a sucker. And yes, that probably includes your spouse and your friends. Your kids lied to you all day long, every day for years, and you assume your parenting skills are so friggin awesome you taught them morality so well, they stopped lying to you? You think the love of your significant other is so strong that there are no lies? Of course there are! I'm not saying you can't still unconditionally love the liars, because really, you have to, to get out of bed in the morning and to sleep at night.

*

What I'm saying is that if those who really care about you lie to you as a matter of course, why would you assume those who hate you aren't lying to you not just every day, but every second of every day, no time off for Sunday? Of course they are! That is what chimps do, it is their nature. Every historical fact you've read was a lie ( where do you think I get mine from? I read between the lines, because everything is untrue ), every line in every newspaper. When you weren't lied to, probably that persons analysis was based on many lies ( this is our problem here, I can never guarantee although I try my best to minimize the failings ).

*

Most people might not REALLY be evil, but they are liars and most are retarded. Most don't realize they are patsies and chumps. Those purple haired cat ladies honestly believe the happy horse crap they scream to the sky, both because they were lied to and because they are too stupid to know this. And none of this is a surprise. You know all this. I think the only problem is we just ignore it, accept it as a given, then still fall for the cons because we aren't actively fighting it. Why did you think this apocalypse stuff was going to be easy?

( .Y. )
