ODE TO THE ECONOMY
Okay, let us start out with waxing eloquently over The Green Mountain Dude ( click here, dammit ), a gentleman from Canada with an underrated survivalist blog that not enough people read. He is rough and course and pisses on all of the conventional “wisdom” that is prepping. And I love him for it. You think I despise semi-auto’s and FLIR scopes? I got nothing on this guy. You think I love junk land? He went to the worst sub-Artic land and is farming it. You think I’m frugal? Okay, you get the idea. It is a bro-mance, even if with reservations.
We don’t agree on everything. I mean, how can we? We each think too highly of ourselves and brook no disagreement. His insistence on Gore Warming, for instance, is something I’ll never buy into until the Pacific is lapping up against the foothills of the Sierra’s. Show me a few million dead Californians ( please! ) and I’ll go around spewing kerosene fumes flying to other rich countries asking for China to stop trying to get rich from polluting. Even if Gore Warming is real, it already has doom baked in the cake.
Better to stock your retreat with the last of the manufactured lifeboat items than worry about the pollution they cause. Which is what I hope all of you are doing ( to be clear, I’m not taking Green Mt. Dude to task for preaching Gore Warming. It is more like he is just pissed off about it, which I can respect. Here I’m railing against the Gore Warmers in general ). I’m also not as keen on his focus on tribe. Not because it isn’t a good idea, but because it isn’t as realistic south of his border.
So, we disagree about some things. That doesn’t matter. What matters is his personality. He is calm and rational. If you’ve read his writing ( why haven’t you? Don’t make me break out my sad trombone ), you might argue he isn’t exactly calm. I mean in a way of deliberating, not as in “not flying off the handle over idiots, moron’s and douche canoes”. With his Global Warming, I can understand his conclusions. He is right there next to the break-down of the Gulf Stream. Just because I don’t agree doesn’t change his reasoning ( I tend towards sun activity as an overriding factor ).
So, when Green Dude calls for another 2008 economic crapstorm, I tend towards immediately agreeing with him. Not that this is anything new, as all of us have been waiting the economy to soil its sheets for some time. Rather, as I trust his advice on most other things, AND because he is untainted by living amongst Imperial Subjects ( hence not blinded by our hubris or by our blindness of the forest since we only see the surrounding trees ), when he says 2019 economic Everything Bubble Popping, I say, thank you for confirmation.
This shouldn’t surprise anyone. You can only kick the can so close to the cliff face before That Sucker’s Going Down. Not that he calls for closing the hatches on the Pit Of Doom. It is JUST an economic Depression, not the fall of civilization. So, no, sorry, it isn’t yet time to stalk the ex-boss’ house, lobbing a Molotov, waiting for her pig face fat ass to run out the door and then start bayonetting her repeatedly, screaming obscenities at her and splattering her with spittle as you explain to her what an asswhore she is and how this is her fault.
Sorry, got a little excited there. The point is, it isn’t Comeuppance Time. It is just more Get Bent, Peasant, Time. And what non-Imperial subjects understand a lot better than us is that economic contractions hurt in a fundamental way. Not in a “good Lord almighty Jesus, I lost my cable TV service” sense but in a “the state just went bankrupt and I get no Food Stamps now, and unemployment is 60%” kind of way. All these Little Brown People sneaking in? Now they get ALL your jobs, not just the ones you didn’t want.
But this is NOT the actual collapse of society. All it is, is DISRUPTION. Not Disintegration. Nor Destruction. Just disruption. Everything is far more disrupted than you are used to. And if you’ve been paying attention, you know bad things are today, before the economic implosion. The Boy Scouts aren’t making enough profit for the CEO to afford hookers and blow, so they let in girls ( pretending to care about PC ideals rather than money ) thinking to reverse the decline in numbers caused by letting fags be scout masters. Instead, everyone leaves the organization and now it is all much worse.
Things are so bad you let diversity hires run the military, because you know everyone will Blame The Darkie when financial irregularities are uncovered. This allows all the upper echelon in the Intelligence Industry to have unlimited hookers and blow, but it also allows the defense of your nation to be managed by total incompetents. You think women made terrible drivers? Think about them in a tank. Or worse, commanding a bunch of tanks. OtherColors, Bitches and Pillow Biters are overseeing our nuclear defense. You KNOW that’s is going to work out!
So, sure, it is hard to see how things get worse. But Wait! They will. Because at least now the trash is collected and the trains ( except Amtrak ) run on time. Well, they run Just In Time ( Inventory ), but close enough. No matter how dysfunctional, you could still go to work and then use that money to buy important stuff like food, shelter and heat. And that won’t end. What will end is the harmony between all the parts. It will be much harder to conclude each step in the process.
Remember the rice shortage? It happened while weather disrupted crops. You could still buy everything BUT rice, BUT prices elsewhere were going crazy. That is going to repeat, BUT! It won’t be one item at a time. It will be many things at a time, constantly. Remember 2008/9? Gas prices shot up, and your local county started replacing blacktop with gravel, and property taxes shot up, and cities started declaring bankruptcy. And a few other scary things. But Business As Usual just printed up more money and credit to make the Bad Men Go Away. Aren’t you pretty sure this next time things will be far worse?
Tomorrow, I’ll further explore the theme of much more disruptive disruption.

I'm glad you mentioned tribe as a point of difference between you and the Green Mountain bloke - you both make persuasive arguments. His writing, humor and the low-tech solutions to problems are great. Without meaning to belittle him though, you have more of an ability to think things through to their unpleasant conclusions. I dunno: desperate people, less civility and massive theft.ReplyDelete
Of course, he might be too optimistic. But only for an American. His assumption of higher civility might actually work for rural Canadians. He knows his area of operations better than I. Plus, he is more hands on while I'm more analytical. I like to think we compliment each other.Delete
There it is, hookers and blow.Delete
I was starting to get withdrawals. shwew
The dark green dude is one of my weekly pit stops.
Funny, his writing "style" is similar to Wilders.
Informative, clever, funny. But neither has a mane that compares to yours.
I think I upset Green Mountain Dude. He opened up the comments section & because I'd been drinking & fancy myself as being funny my comment was "bison blog is better"ReplyDelete
His blog is top tier, easily top 5.
I have to admire his conviction that commercialism blows. Makes things a lot easier. Now and after The End.Delete
Worse than 2008! hahahahahahahA! It's going to be Zimbabewe+Rwanda+Bosnia with maybe one in twenty surviving 2021 inside the hives.ReplyDelete
Happy Neu Year.
Soon enough, 2008-the good 'ol days.Delete
I got $15.99 Sawyer's filter and SOL sport utility blanker for $16.99 at Kroger in Portlandia. Clean water and warm/dry will help while I observe the collapse.ReplyDelete
Still jealous the Smiths here doesn't offer it. Oh, well-plenty of $2.50 butter.Delete
I heard something just recently about the boy scouts filing bankruptcy. It started going down hill rapidly once they allowed the “rear gunners” into their ranks, and now they’re dealing with a buttload of problems :DReplyDelete
I think the final nail in the coffin was when they turned it unisex. I never understood that one myself, since there was already an organization for girls? But apparently, the predominately white, heterosexual, branch, was the most popular, so of course they had to ruin it for everyone.
Misery loves company, so there ya go.Delete
Girl Scouts is still for girls only (no mention of visibly-female but gender-role confused females as GS's or GS leaders). Thin Mints! GS is suing the Former Boy Scouts of America, now "Scouts" for brand-infringement / violation of copyright, and generally bad behavior by attempting to snatch (!) away girls and gender-confused young people from their program. The former BSA is also filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy/reorganization in an attempt to leave the liability for their bad behavior in the past while keeping the same poor leadership in charge. BSA has/had billions of dollars in assets in their camp systems and owned property gifted to them by former Scouts who believed in the old system of bringing up good quality boys. What happened to "Morally Straight" boys and male Leaders? It's not PC with the Marxist GlobalHomo Feminist Agenda.Delete
Look how low the NRA fell, but still supported by those confused about loyalty not there by the organization. These people stay in business by those unable to acknowledge change for the worse.Delete
