let the enemy supply you 2


LET THE ENEMY SUPPLY YOU 2
Dropping out of the hamster wheel no longer starves the beast of funding, as long as you finance shelter, a car, or pretend medical insurance.  If you are paying $700 a month “insurance”, and then need to come up with seven grand prior to them covering anything, after which they negotiate with the doctor to pay far below “retail” cost ( pennies on the dollar ), tell yourself again how you need insurance.  That money is straight financial heroine right into the banksters vein.  It would hurt less getting mugged for your wallet and sodomized.
*
If you think a car is worth more than your yearly income, you are delusional ( remember, I’m talking here of FINANCING homes, auto’s and medical.  The “financing” part is what enslaves you and funds your oppressors ).  Not that I think most of my readers are delusional.  I mean, sure, there is a hell of a lot of mumbling about AR’s, freeze dried and FLIR scopes, but the majority of you also make decent money so you can have the toys.  I only oppose them if you are poor and need frugal preps.  Well, I do oppose FLIRS on general principles.
*
Anyway, focusing back on letting your enemy supply you.  Guerrillas throughout history were poor, surrounded and oppressed.  They just needed a set of balls to go and get the enemy to supply them.  It wasn’t with everything they needed, like FLIR scopes, but it was enough to do the job.  Armies are trained to need the army.  After all, how else do Generals get paid enough for hookers and blow?  Armies cannot do their job without a huge logistical infrastructure.  That is their strength, as the better fed and equipped army should win more often than not. 
*
And it is their weakness for if that supply is interrupted they cannot do their job at all.  Guerrillas start out having little to nothing, and hence are not handicapped by supply irregularity.  They just go back to not fighting for a time.  You can see the problem that the global imperial forces have as they stretch out their supply chain too far for too long fighting irregulars, as multi-million dollar aircraft sit like a Caddy in the ghetto, up on blocks and stripped to the frame, to supply spare parts to the survivors in the fleet.
*
As preppers, we are blessed in that not only are we able to have the imperial surplus to get ready for the collapse of that empire and its kissing cousin Western Civilization, but we can also prepare for a guerrilla war far better than has historically been the case.  We will still have to fight to steal the supplies we need, but being pre-supplied does mean we have flexibility to wait for more advantageous circumstances tactically, at times.  We can cut down on casualties since we come to the battlefield already supplied.  Just remember your priorities.  Ammo and wheat.
*
Kindly recall, oranges and bayonets.  Do you want to be the starving guerrillas lured on to the highway with the promise of breakfast cereal ( Rice Crispies? ) and oranges ( reference, Wolverines! )?  Do you really think it is a good idea to run out of ammunition and have to fix bayonets?  I love bayonets, but I would prefer to not have to use them against someone better armed than I.  Bringing a knife to a gunfight, as it were.  If you already have food and ammo, you only need steal more on your terms rather than the enemies.
*
That is the whole point.  You can’t avoid the fight, but you can tilt the playing rules in your favor.  Do you think we aren’t in conflict now, with our Banker Overlords?  Of course we are.  They fight to get your willing consent to be screwed over, and you should be fighting against that.  NOT being in debt is a very important part of that.  But do I think you should ONLY worry about debt?  Of course not.  The Financiers have left us a loophole to use ( NEVER fight to your enemies strengths, but to his weaknesses ). 
*
As employment plummets, income tax is not a profit center for them ( bankers benefit from taxes, as that pays them through the government loans.  The government just collects the money, to pass through to the bankers ).  As China has invested in overproduction, sales taxes are not a great profit center.  Debt is THE one and really functionally only profit center.  If you focus on just working and buying, you are avoiding the worst of the bankers taxes and focusing on stocking for the fight ( if nothing else, you Alpha Strategy to fight inflation ).
*
Whether you are stocking for the civil war, for the collapse, or just against inflation so as to afford retirement, or all three, you can’t lose.  If you are in debt, don’t get MORE into hock, but don’t put every spare penny into paying it back either.  Not while everything is so dirt cheap.  Now is the time to can years of meat, replace as much grid electricity with solar panels as possible and stock as much wheat ( or storage food ) and ammo as you can ( ammo won’t help during business as usual, but it is a sleeping pill ).
*
NOT funding your extermination is just a bonus.  It isn’t the point of being out of debt.  The point there is just having more flexibility and far less stress.  The Free Crap Army employed by the bankers will try to replace you.  They might, they might not.  Circumstances are too fluid at this point to tell.  What you need to do is join the CHEAP Crap Army to get ready for the fight.  It has never been cheaper to get out of debt ( if you live on junk land and still work, you can get out of debt AND still stockpile ). 
*
If you divorce yourself from the bankers profit centers-mortgages, auto loans and insurance scams-you can then fund your subsidized crap stockpile.  Remember, capitalism/colonialism is essentially getting free or nearly free commodities and selling them as finished goods.  The banks WANT nearly free petroleum, wheat & corn, ore, precious metals and everything else ( nearly free, as in “as close to the cost of production as possible” ).  Their profit is in the loans to the companies. Which means nearly all of life’s tools and equipment is sold cheaper and cheaper.
*
You MUST take advantage of this while you can.  click here is a knife sharpening wheel, $1.23 shipped from China.  That is the cost AFTER shipping ( these are what I recommend for putting back the angle on a knife.  As such, their disposable quality is no longer a problem.  You are just rescuing a knife, then using a superior Rada sharpener after that.  Stock up on these, big time ).  I’m sure Dollar Tree also has them, for a buck plus sales tax.  This is a more obvious example of “subsidized commodities”.  How much do you think it REALLY costs for that postage?
*
What about all the tools you need for that home business you’ll try to use to live off grid?  It will never to cheaper than to stock up as now.  It will be better than money in a checking account, since in theory it makes you money rather than just costing you ( inflation tax on saved cash, sunk cost tax on all non-business or non-daily living items.  And don’t forget, coming soon, the bank bail-in tax ).  Just don’t forget that this is NOT the 90’s where you had dirt cheap ore and energy giving us low cost surplus.
*
This is the era of high cost energy, diminishing ores and panic sell-off liquidations to attempt to stay in business or boost the stock prices of a company ( since the CEO is paid largely in stock ).  It will last far less time than the 90’s cashing in of a prostrate Color Revolution’ed Russia.  You have been warned.  Again.

  1. Yes Jim, you are spot on again. All of those laundry list variables are indeed in play here for the frugal prepper to take that once in a history opportunity sandwich and run away with it. If a mental tabulation is chalked up, the minions over time could theoretically be dwelling in a defacto warehouse, armory, ammo dump, fuel dump, mechanics shop, etc rat's nest of preps. I may go underground with an off the permit books expansion of the bunker complex to have more space and facilities for compound operations. Good times, don't miss the bus!

    2. "Don't miss the bus!" Was a Japanese translated euphemism durimg the pre war period of upheaval, for getting what could be had (conquest) whilst you can. Genghis Khan didn't roll O.G. without first going all in and not missin' no stinkin' bus man!

  2. re:
    "...sales tax..."

    We have words, then we have 'words'.

    Who pays the taxes on a purchase? The purchaser pays the taxes. Using this fact, I am pretty darn sure taxes on a purchase ought to be known by its correct name == 'purchase taxes'.

    And remember, no business can afford to pay real estate taxes. Utilities such as water sewer garbage electricity telephone taxes. Employee taxes. Inventory taxes. Maintenance such as care for the building and parking lot, plus taxes on maintenance equipment and supplies.

    Who pays to keep the business going? The customer pays the taxes, utilities, maintenance, employees.

    Anything left over is profit for the business owner. Of course, the customer pays the taxes the business owner pays, since 'profit' is taxable as income.

    I owned a restaurant for ten years. Chico, California... a ten-minute drive from the torched town of Paradise, and a twenty-minute drive from Oroville with its leaky earth dam.

    California. Don't get me started. I mean it. California. Do not get me started.

    1994, after thirty-four years as a California bureaucrat, my acquaintance Greg retired at 103% (one hundred and three percent) of his last salary == us$9,400 a month.

    A couple years ago, he confided to me his 'Cost Of Living' adjustments gradually increased his pension to us$14,000 a month. Greg told me "I don't know where this money is coming from!"

    That is the problem. Bureaucrats are isolated from producers. Irregardless of floods from weather or mis-managed dams, irregardless of mis-management of timber land, the government agents get paid.

    Today, Rawlesville admits he refers to The Honorable Alexandra O'Casio-Cortez as 'She Guevara'.

    Words.

    1. "'She Guevara'." Okay, I'll admit it. Clever. But she is just a meat puppet. Socialism and the promise of free crap as a way to disguise the needed higher taxes. 90% won't go out to free crap, but the 10% that does goes to non-Deplorables, used as a weapon.

    2. "...refers to The Honorable Alexandra O'Casio-Cortez as 'She Guevara'."

      Given her rich girl lifestyle and "champion of the poor" speeches, the one I like better is "Neiman Marxist".

    3. That one IS better. I can't keep track-she is getting more monikers than Obammy the White House Negro, the Kenyan Klown, Obozo, Barry, etc. I hope that doesn't mean anything with that connection. :(

    4. They should make a tv series about her. All the ingredients are there. Ditzy, naive, bartender, goes to Washington and tries to turn the system on its head with her wacky, impractical, backfiring schemes. It would be a huge hit! :D

    5. I remember when "government jobs paid crap but they couldn't fire you" but am a little less sympathetic now that it's "pay better than private sector work plus free money in retirement forever."

      Sigh.

    6. 8:06-there is an embarrassment of riches there. And she probably isn't the worse one-a lot of "ghetto clowns".

      John-yeah, not sure how that whole circus evolved. It would probably be too simplistic to just blame Unions, as Reagan put a stop to that nonsense early on.

  3. I think it was the final big push by the Germans in wwi that they were unable to exploit their break through because their troops found food & booze and refused to go any further as they were literally starving. Food included unharvested wheat & cattle.

  4. Living Frugal is the only way we will survive the future.
    To survive we must avoid as much contact or reveal knowledge that we exist with your city, county, state and fed governments during our normal lives. I wish more people would understand that even with your vehicle and home paid for “YOU DON’T OWN THEM” we never truly own ANYTHING! How is that? My home is paid for but I don’t own it. If I elect to or have no money to pay the real-estate tax’s the gov will snatch it out from under me and sell it for the taxes due.. Great country, ha. Same goes for a vehicle, try driving it without a current plate and this scenario goes for everything we THINK we own.

    Buying and living on junk land in a converted garden shed, RV or small old mobile home that has no value will keep the taxes affordable. This is a start!

    As for where to keep your retirement money is still something I need to figure out. Banks, stocks, bonds etc is bull squat as a collapse is immanent or the gov can shut down the banks or the banks simply won’t let you withdraw anything. (Greece sound familiar).

    Gold and Silver is the stock answer, but I see a real issue with it. Who is going to set the market/trading value of Gold or Silver? Nobody I know, it will be a free-for-all. 5 gallons of gasoline may be bought for a 1/10th oz gold coin (now today $134.00) that’s a lot to pay for 5 gallons of gas, or $26.00 a gallon today’s market. You will pay it or do without.

    The only way we can win is to not feed the monkeys (politicians). In other words live very frugal but a very comfortable life because it is going to be a long haul to the end.

    James is right on so many survival topics.

    1. I save half cash ( no bill larger than 20's ) and half silver. Don't much care for either, but my savings would be a rounding error for most people. I have little enough to lose, I guess. Other than than, I have five years of pretty much everything I use daily. Although the food goes from normal to Mormon Four pretty quick.

    2. Yeah, no such thing as true property ownership, in the “land of the free”, and the home of the brave. I can’t recall right off, but there are at least a few countries in which there is no property tax. I recall that a few years back, the elimination of property tax, actually made the ballot in North Dakota. For a multitude of bullshit reasons I’m sure, it was voted down.

      The best that you can do in Murka is to minimize property tax (i.e. junk land). But I’d still avoid the communist states, because you never know when they’ll jack the property taxes through the ceiling. That pole smoking commie, Gavin Newsom, was actually giving lip service to eliminating prop 13 (probably the only sane law that fucked up state ever passed).

      I hope that a carbon spewing jet airliner, carrying Al Gore, crashes into Newsom, while that ├╝ber dumbfuck, Eric Swalwell (Probably the biggest dumbfuck next to Al Gore) is standing next to him. Hey, if you’re gonna fantasize, may as well reach for the stars :D

    3. Mike - If you're looking for an investment strategy check out Harry Browne's Permanent Portfolio. 1/4 in each category Cash : Gold : Stock : Bonds

    4. I was searching for that book on Amazon. I didn't find anything but just kind of skimmed. I forgot all his efforts in the Libertarian politics. I would argue that this portfolio is not really for survivalists. Perhaps Yuppie Scum Preppers.

    5. 8:21-( re: group under the plane impact site ) hey, can you add the Baby Momma ex-wife in there as well? I've wished upon starts and voodu dolls and so far no luck. Perhaps if you try...:)

    6. Anon 1:19, thanks for the book lead.

      “Harry Browne and the Permanent Portfolio”
      https://www.wallstreetphysician.com/harry-browne-permanent-portfolio/
      The permanent portfolio proposed by Harry Browne consisted of equal weighting in four asset classes: 25% U.S. Stocks, 25% Treasury Bills, 25% Long-Term Treasury Bonds, 25% Gold.
      The link will take you to several pages explaining his portfolio and its’ performance over the years. It is a sound way to invest conservatively.

      However, it’s not for me as my intention is to hold my money myself (such as under my mattress :-) ) and not have the gov decide to ban holding gold or placing a hefty tax on it when sold or taxing any treasury instrument because I’m a white man and they think I don’t deserve that money I earned.

  5. Defensive Training Group (I think) blog made a good point about having a sharpener that does not break when dropped like ceramic crock sticks will. Diamond abrasive stones are not terribly expensive and will last a good long time, given care. Look into them and judge if they are worth the cost - I already made up my mind.

    1. Whatever you use to get the correct angle on the blade, afterwards to keep that edge I only recommend Rada sharpeners.
