MACRO PLAN 2
There isn’t anything wrong with losing the conventional jobs to the OtherColors and OtherGenders, per se. Sure, it blows on a philosophical level. But on a macro level, they are doing us a favor. They are taking the High Target jobs. The better paying a job is, the more vulnerable that employee is, unless they get paid so much they can set aside Hump You money. And how many jobs are like THAT anymore? That Diversity Officer at the state university making $250k a year? Just ask yourself this. Can a state government print its own money?
These college educated idiots taking these jobs are too friggin retarded to even remember eight or nine years ago? When every municipality and every state was broke, was seeing their tax base erode and was cutting services faster than a pimp a week before payday. How did these governments continue? They jacked up property taxes and borrowed the hell out of decreasing interest rate loans. So the next downturn they go into, their strategy is, exactly, what? 2009 saw the death of the middle class, in part from the bankers greed over mortgages and in part from local governments with taxes.
What middle class home owning group is there left to raise taxes on? They are all renting now, and Florida is just waiting with mobile home parks for the next wave of 65 year olds taking on twenty years loans to pay for their rental units. Perhaps Buffet is smarter than he has been sounding lately. How do states take on more debt, when they have 10% funded pension plans ( and that is using the economic figures now, not those worse ones soon to be )? Even with new zero percent loans, how do they pay the principle?
Not to say they won’t muddle through. But there will a lot of closed colleges and a lot of corporations who suddenly discovery they don’t need a separate Diversity Hire Manager ( just hire all fems and fags, colored and communist ). The service industry is going to look a lot like Detroit in the 70’s. Not that small independent businesses won’t suffer. They will, terribly. But they are nimble and shoestring operations, with the owner-if not completely imbecilic-living very cheaply. They can actually find alternate income far more easily than a make-work position funded by debt.
Just understand that the less income your customers have the less they can spend on you, regardless of how Bitchen Bob your product is. We are all on a downward trend income wise. Learn that now, and your wild careening car ride will be less scary. Most of us understand and have made adjustments. And however less than ideal they are, at least we are off the treadmill. Our vanquishers believe themselves to be smarter and deadlier, but they are simpletons unaware of the forces using them as meat puppets. That will be small consolation.
Yes, we lost the economic war. But it was a war over an obsolete lifestyle, so there is that. Be of good cheer-it will soon be quite obvious how fragile it is. The amount of fuss these people are putting into deplatforming is impressive, and I won’t pretend it isn’t scary as hell. But it is defending a high tech, high energy system that isn’t sustainable. The Internet was sold as an energy saver, but it was always about robotizing jobs on the taxpayer dime. We will be able to adjust back to the ancient time of post office deliveries. You can get used to monthly periodicals again.
It is too bad that your city in the area has been taken over by the gutter trash from the universities and urban sprawl ghettos. Yes, that means that your otherwise conservative state votes AmComParty. Most states allow concealed or open carry. Arm up, and drive to your suburban mega-store for shopping as little as possible. Make it a seasonal trip and reduce your exposure to asswhores as much as possible. Take a pay cut to work a less urban job. It all sucks, granted. You have no choice, though, do you? Mistake One is nostalgia.
Sure, you used to be able to smoke in public, and beat your wife chained to the kitchen stove ( as long as you avoided the stuffed womb ). The good old days. Yes, I long for them also. I long for my youth. Maybe. I’m not sure about that one. I can almost always tell my libretto to STFU now, which is really nice. But it doesn’t matter. Crap in one hand and want in the other. I’ll bet the ranch and my unicorn Social Security pension which hand fills up faster. We must adjust.
Yes, sometimes that is easier said than done. Constant business remodeling will take its toll on creativity output. You must conjure more energy to fight the humpers. And sometimes you can’t dig any deeper for discipline-an actual pound of flesh must be paid. It can be spiritually draining. And when those punk ass bitch fuzzy foreigners are dumped into Section Eight housing NOT in your city but in your village? What are you supposed to do when diversity babies will be White beating juvenile delinquents in a few short years from now? Who wants to move when they are fifty?
But what is hard on the individuals is good for the group. We might not benefit in our lives, but in effect we are being forced to toughen back up, to a time where luxuries were not assumed to be a right. Hey, I loved my life of a spurt of manual labor followed by a long period in a recliner with a book. I’m as lazy as allowed. But I also understood it was a decadent lifestyle already showing its aging and decrepitude. I know I’m lucky to have you suckers help stretch that out a little longer J
So, enjoy while you can, and count yourself lucky if an exception. Just beware as things keep changing you might be forced to adapt a more mobile and flexible lifestyle. Our old promised one is dead. I think most of my minions are already aware and prepared for this. Only the morons don’t go through forty years of decline and fail to pick up on this clue. And being stupid is another luxury soon to be priced out of our pay scale. Good stuff, fun times. Tip a glass to the clueless who are gloating about taking your old life.

Last summer I mentioned I was working with someone on a pole barn for X amount of dollars. Someone on here ran the numbers and found I was making about $10 and hour and scoffed. He is looking at the situation through worn out and irrelevant ocular glands and unless he wisens up he's gonna get hungry, and hungry is not the time to be looking for work. Your desperation will chase work away.ReplyDelete
You mentioned "nimble". Yes. Good word. I'll add "flexible" to it. Adaptable. Malleable, etc. You have to be willing to do whatever needs to be done for whatever money or consideration you can get and be thankful for it. Also, always looking ahead and around for opportunities. Always paying attention, learning, trying new things.
Point is, from here on out, the old stable work environment is history and if you cling too long you'll get hungry and lose what you have. Waiting til the last second is not advisable. Start changing now. Little by little. If you can keep your existing employ, good, but in the meantime be fabricating that 2nd basket to carry additional and future eggs in. That way, when the old job is yanked you're already up and running with the alternate. Make sure you choose stuff to do that you mostly like. If you don't like scooping dog dung why are you doing it? Since you already have your full time work to pay the bills, your secondary work doesn't need to make a lot of coin right away. Instead, you need to be thinking about concreting relationships with others. I know. I hate em too. But I like the coins in their pockets and I'm not going to go all ghetto on their asses and take it. Not yet. Things got to get a lot worse before I turn on the retarded animal routine.
Think. ALL money comes from other people, unless you're a counterfeiter. People like to interact with people they like. This isn't rocket surgery. Everybody has some money and everybody has things they need done and are unable to do themselves. So it's a natural progression to hire other people that they like to do those things and are willing to pay for it. If you try to charge $20 for a $10 job and $10 worker will eat your lunch. Get in front of it. If you think a job should cost $10, charge $5, and knock the $10 guy on his ass. Every time.
In your spare time you should be thinking about this stuff. Before you work you have to act and before that you must think. Peace. Onward.
It took me ten years of writing before I got paid, and another ten before I started being very good at it. And now I can do it full time, but only because I need very little to live on. I never would have hung in there if I didn't love it. Follow your passion and eventually money follows. Just don't think A Lot of money follows, not in a shrinking economy. Hint: old timey skills have no competition and that is the direction we are headed back to anyway.Delete
Correct guys, keep expectations low so as to not be dissapointed and have those precious feelings hurt. Now is not the time to suffer from inflated ego and be shut out from the new normal. Gig short term jobs and piece work payed at flat fees or even barter are the new paradigm for Minions out on the fringes of the collapsing systems. The full time 40 hour jobs are a slow death even for simple menial tasks. An accurate comparison of "ALL" of the effects on you and supposed rewards will reveal to the alert Minion that elusive option is pretty much bullpoop anyway. Our time as we age out and want to enjoy semi or full retirement is way more valuable than any supposed tempting compensation. Think about it.Delete
I'll still be writing at half current compensation ( please don't take this as permission! ). My time got 10x more valuable once I realized I was on the rapid downhill slope towards a casket ( mainly from the medical industry imploding, not my current health ). Not because I don't waste my own time. I do. I just don't want others wasting it.Delete
Consider the marginalizing of your kind as well as the economic and professional knee capping a favor and blessing in disquise. Minions if positioned well can go Galt and drop out of the system cleanly. A forced or adapted lowering of income, lifestyle, participation is removing your contribution to the machine. I let all the anchor kids and dreamers toil away at service sector shit jobs. They fill my orders for goods and services and I smile slyly as I depart thinking "suckers". I watch the immigrant and prole neighbors rush off every morning to ther "jobs", and again slyly comment, "have a nice day cleaning toilets, washing dishes, making beds, in those shithole Las Vegas hotels, ha!" Rome can burn down all around me, don't care anymore, no pressure here. It is all easier, and quite fun, once a Minion doesn't give a rats ass.ReplyDelete
Ya, I think it was Tom Cruise in risky business. It turned out to be a sub cult phrase that in it's time and place was bad ass. And often repeated. Good recall Jim, the nuerons still fire away there you.Delete
I just tried watching RB again. I think it was on Amazon Prime. Still love Tangerine Dream but I couldn't get past the first fifteen or twenty minutes. Too much like a high budget Last American Virgin or Porkies. Used to love that movie. Ah, well, saw it enough back in the day.Delete
old timey skills
5.56 versus 7.62 versus 6.5Creedmore?
1960 == a brown charged our camp in the Idaho backcountry. Surrounded and bumped by barking biting dogs and kicking mules, Granpa Jack put one in its brainpan. 30.06 bolt. Worked the action, scanned for its spouse and kids.
There is one 'old timey skill' I am rusty on... telling nincompoops to shut-up. Lately, I notice I get caught-up with curiosity and amusement well-beyond the point of simple neighborliness.
Then I reach the point of "Was there a point to think story?" And that rarely earns me any subtlety points. Well-before that point, Granpa Jack always demanded an 'aggravation tax'.
Back then, I was the nincompoop. Now, of course, I am a cherished elder sharing tidbits of wisdom. [ducks and runs]
Just let people ramble. They think you care, then like you better. Everyone thinks they are smart, so it does little good to debase them of that delusion. Or just avoid altogether.Delete
Not only do they think you care, you get to be a repository of tiny useful bits of info that can be assembled into actionable intelligence. Sometimes, this deep knowledge is "These people are CRAZY!" leading to a planned short business trip that extends to the rest of time (leaving obvious low-value trappings behind, valuable stuff fits in that last one-van business-trip). It can be better to leave a crazy group than to attempt eradication. Buy a new burner phone (or just a $10 SIM at T-Mobile) for the new life.Delete
Wait for the meds to get skipped. Then crazy is everywhere.Delete
Whoa Nelly, now thats a whole nother wagon load there. The wacka doodle census is up there with worthless dregs and full on criminal class. Be full on prepared to put down hard anyone not carrying their gear squarely, or else they be up in your grill for some morsels you may be having, yo. Just passing the wisdom, Minions. Good night all.Delete
But do you have enough bullets?Delete
Nice to see you've come around to the need of concealed carry.ReplyDelete
Any honest job is a good job.
I still feel comfortable with CC, but that is my location. Minions might vary. Still leery of local DA persecution though.Delete
Yeah, double edged sword. A lot of responsibility and liability with toting a smoke wagon. The benefit is that you are a vetted citizen. Johnson, Officer unfriendly who is highly overtrained to stomp on baby chickens will at least give a permit carrier a little pass on contacts with "thou" l.e.o. overlords. Elected sheriffs and d.a. as well as judges won't screw too hard on permit citizens as they are a solid voting block. If a Minion has to go guns hot on a scum bag either in public or in domicile, they may get benefit of doubt as long as a righteous shoot and not saying too much with out legal counsel present. It is kinda worth the steps to get and renew regularly. Also practice square range and open field movement range too. STAY FROSTY.Delete
I would think LEO attitude towards CC dudes mirrors that toward security guards. You know, "scumbag civilian thinks he can do my job"Delete
I found a copy of Rawles' book HOW TO SURVIVE THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT for a $1 at the local Goodwill so am giving it an opportunity. Some prepper must have cashed it in - also found Cody Lundin's book WHEN ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE for same price - now THAT is gold, Lundin's books are full of good practical advice.ReplyDelete
I have both and the Lundin book gets used more. Rawles had his first book at one of our local thrift stores. Went back a good time later and it was still there. I guess the LDS'ers don't need his brand of fundamentalism. Or his advice on forming a group since they already have a better one.Delete
