maa guns 2


MAA GUNS 2
Even the Soviet Union allowed farmers and the like to own a shotgun.  Which probably had more to do with allowing the guy to keep wolves from the minks so the farm could continue to provide The Motherland with strategic materials for the war effort than anything else.  And citizens of Das Homeland will still be allowed to own guns.  I mean, you can’t actually USE them or anything, such as when an armed intruder kicks in your door.  Self-defense is so barbaric and vigilante like and if you didn’t go to college for four years ( like cops ) who are you to decide?
*
That is, if you are poor.  If you have enough money for a lawyer, well then of COURSE you were merely defending yourself justifiably.  But if you are poor, well, hump you.  I keep telling you that we are back in the robber baron era, where there are no safety devices at your work, you lose an arm in a derailment and the next day you are unemployed and stuck with a doctor bill.  And then, when the poor got tired of crap like this, the National Guard was called in to fire on workers trying to form a Union. 
*
And naturally, that was communist and socialist behavior on the part of the workers, wasn’t it?  Just like those farmers turning corn into whiskey were treasonous.  The poor have always gotten a stiff upper cut to the gonads, and when you defend today’s robber barons because “capitalism”, you are defending the paradigm.  In the vain hopes of one day accumulating enough Mammon to piss some of it away on hookers and blow, you defend the system that penalizes the poor.  What you ignore is that those with wealth NEED the poor and will make more of them.
*
No, Rush, you bloated pus face, the poor are not that way because they are lazy and stupid.  Sure, they can be.  But the system is rigged and that is so the elite always have their slaves to toil on their behalf.  For a very short time, the working class were allowed to share in the spoils, but as soon as that generation-all war veterans-started getting long on the tooth, the elites returned us to the historical norm ( no, dumb ass, I’m not a communist.  They ALSO have their slaves, elites and straw bosses ).
*
For a time, there was enough surplus that we were allowed to be debt slaves.  The illusion of middle class allowed the slaves to toil in relative comfort.  As they at the same time worshiped the elite under the illusion that they would one day join the ruling class.  Suckers.  Now that resources are either gone or close to it, there can no longer be even the illusion of debt fueled prosperity.  More and more folks are just poor, period.  More join their ranks every day, just as daily the middle class shrinks.  Since the elites are a closed membership, the only place to go is down.
*
Now, this is what I’m desperately trying to tell you.  You WILL be poor.  Not because you are lazy.  Plenty of Working Poor labor like crazy.  Not because you are an OOH-pressed minority.  More Whites are becoming poor, but they will just join the always poor Blacks and the newly poor Hispanics that thought there were jobs here.  All the factories are moving SOUTH.  Then closing, so the joke is on the Mexicans.  Can you say, “global overproduction and over indebtedness”?  It’s easy.  Okay, try this-“you’re humped”.
*
Since you WILL be poor, you need to get off your fat delusional ass and plan NOW.  That means that junk land.  Years of food both for before and after the collapse, and if such is your deepest desire, the semi-arsenal.  This might be your last chance.  I’ve already been saying that prices are at or below cost because of arms maker overproduction.  This is NOT the “new normal”.  This is your last chance to buy dirt cheap guns and ammunition.  It doesn’t matter if the Democrats never pass this new semi-auto tax.  One way or another, guns will cost a lot more.
*
What did an AR-15 cost in the late ‘90’s?  Adjusted for inflation it was something like, what?  $3k?  If gold was one third the price then than it is now, take your old price and triple it.  Even the Rugar Mini-14 was something like $1200 adjusted.  Now, if suddenly half of today’s manufactures of guns went bankrupt, what would prices be like?  If all detachable magazine guns were taxed with the old federal $200 tax, plus the cost of paperwork and compliance, what do you think prices would look like?  Most likely, very few guns made would henceforth BE semi-auto.
*
What would THAT do to prices?  Only the rich could have guns, just like with machineguns today.  But let us say this is just more fear porn and the Dems can’t pack the Supreme Court right away.  Even if this is a baseless scare, if you look at the economy there is nothing but bad news.  When Pepsi and Starbucks are laying off people or closing stores, that right there is a very strong indicator that the economy is taking a watery crap.  Some First World people get all the calories a Turd World peasant needs to farm just in soda water, as extra.
*
And in this paradigm, Pepsi can’t make enough of a profit ( I think their restaurant division is dragging everything down, or it could just be that Pepsi tastes like crap and the company can’t advertise their way to fooling folks about that anymore )?  Right now, in this supposed perfect economy, car loan delinquencies ( I believe “over three months behind” is the definition, verses merely “over due” ) are TRIPLE that of 2008.  No, my fine feathered minions, the economy is worse than ever.  Remember the comments section recently?
*
Everyone is trying to sell their guns for operating capital, and nobody is buying them.  Now, if it was me, I’d pay an extra 25% to buy new rather than used, because Quality For The Apocalypse, but there was also talk of gun stores closing.  So, yes, sales are way down.  And guns are like gas.  Prices are low when in surplus but dear when scarce.  If one guy is pumping oil instead of ten, even with the same supply the petrol is more expensive.  The 1999 AR-15 wasn’t THAT much more of a cost to manufacture to justify that six times price.
*
With an economy this bad and purchasing power even worse ( as rent and medical shoot up double digits each year ), gun manufactures as well as ammo suppliers are going to close.  Prices will shoot up.  Hell, if I was extra paranoid I might think a coalition of arms manufactures financed OAC and other rabid commies to sponsor these kinds of bills to increase demand and financially bail them out.  Hell, where is MY cut?  I’m pimping for semi-auto and magazines, and I HATE them!  But, seriously, get them now or forever hold your peace.  The consumer end is nigh.
*
For any of several reasons.  No jobs, no matter how skilled or educated you are, as there are no customers.  You think you know more about your job than Starbucks knows about selling coffee?  Your feedback loop is that every two weeks you get a paycheck rather than a pink slip.  Their feedback?  Decades full of millions of customers.  Yet, does that matter if people have no choice but to cut back on fancy foo-foo caffeine drinks, because as their hours are cut their non-discretionary expenses rise?  Make hay while the sun shines, yo.

  1. Yes Jim. Very, Very correct analysis here. I concur, as when working in gun shop I would break it down in those types of digestible lemming nuggets of information. The guns, 'required' accessories, and ammo are very much too niche products to be reliably available and always being cheap enough on common walmart shelves. Those Minionites whom are devout "survivalists" and not just faking those prep orgasms should be very much all in on the program. Swearing off of silly consumerism like a substance abuse issue should allow one to focus the remaining imperial empire crumbs to the remaining armaments and supplies. I have worked at this issue hard for a quarter century plus, and this is an interesting interim period. Be able to arm up a squad, preferably a platoon. Also the cooks, medics, and chaplain best be gunned up hard too, everybody will be deeply involved come collapse.

    1. Just look what happened to the HK91 in our adult lifetimes. From "must have survival gun" to uber-niche. The Lee-Enfield went from Po Boy gun to collectors item. The guy who started out with a Remington 700 in 30-06, though, saw nothing change ( is that a good example? Not sure if they still make that one ).

  2. Lord Bison's astute writings have received an honorable mention award by the esteemed Ol Remus over at "The Woodpile Report". There is a header article write up referencing .22lr / .22wmr. Minions are assigned homework today to go over for a review. (Good job again, Jim)

  3. I was in a nearby town for an early morning Dr. appointment. There were a large number of cars backed up on the frontage road. My wife and I wondered what was going on. Turns out they were all going to a Starbucks drive through! What a waist of time and dollars!

    1. One almost has to wonder if sales decline is due to those long car lines. No one wants to get out and walk in ( hobo's crapping/camping in the restrooms ), they see the long line and just drive past.

    2. They are actually only there to use the wi-fi in that vicinity on the ghost burner devices to get or exchange intel with other subversives. It is a Deep State and Cabal round up and rally site for coordination. (How else does these flake operations stay afloat and very profitable?) The overpriced mud coffee profits is payback to the corporate front operation. Remember Minions, things may not really be what they seem to be.

  4. Better get smart, or stay lazy and dead.
    What do I consider lazy?
    First, people that do not use more of their intellectual horsepower.
    If you depend on one other source for your maintenance, you are stupid. period. full system stop.

    As Jim says, the rich will always take advantage of those lower on the pole. duh Corn takes advantage of the soil, and the sun and the rain. That's what thinking human being do, they take advantage of thing for their benefit. Or, they stay poor and miserable.

    Notice that I didn't say you commit crimes against others. If you do that you deserve a double kick in the nadz. You stay vigilant, always on the lookout for ways to improve yourself and in a capitalist economy that means exchanging pieces of life/time for consideration that you want. Want a loaf of bread? Sweep my workshop. Want a FLIR? Mow the airport. lol If you're a nice looking yung thang and you'd like some new jewelry? Get em off and keep em off.

    Lazy is at the root of all poverty, some lazyness of ass, and some lazyness of mind. Honest people know this. Your time on this earth should be divided into two parts. 1 Goal achieving. 2 Tension relieving. With most of it for number 1. For 50 years people have been trained to believe number 2 is the right answer. They are poor.

    Anyway, being poor of wallet isn't the worst thing as long as you're fairly satisfied with your life style.

    1. Jim, writing for $3k a year, no bills, no debt-rich
      Dude making $80k a year, owes a half million-poor.
      Money isn't much of a marker if you abuse it, or are miserable getting it.

    2. Right.
      Money is first and foremost a tool, how you use it is your choice.
      Long ago I worked on a carpentry crew where one guy had a cheap saw with a frayed cord and a dull blade and he always wanted to borrow mine, til he broke it. Now he had to buy me a new saw AND still put up with his old one. He didn't use his money tool to his advantage so his bad habits used his money tool to kick him in the ass. Would have been so much easier to get an $8 blade and a $5 cord and the rest of the cost of my new $40 saw would have been to party with.

      Budgeting ones money is a topic the schools should teach as well as the parents but it's not been done for 50 years. No wonder everybodys ins and outs are unbalanced. And, look at the example the gov't sets in that regard.

      I've heard that all the big lottery winners are broke in a few years, and most of them are also severely in debt. I just can't my head around that.

    3. I had a long comment but it went to the dryer sock black hole. Basically, the lotto is a Stupid Tax, but worse than that is the sin of not learning from your mistakes.

    4. Long time ago when I was young...instead of paying someone else to do a job , I'd just buy the tool and if I didn't know how, would learn. Invariably it still came out less than I'd have to pay someone else to do. Sometimes might even require a few jobs to pay for the tool. In the long run tho , ended up with a lot of quality tools and skills.

    5. I tried not to own anything I had to fix. I called it living minimalist :) I finally started learning by 30, by which time Wal-Mart was selling cheap China crap. No lasting tools but it made easing into the practice far less painful.

    6. "...ended up with a lot of quality tools and skills."

      Well there ya go, another old skool kinda dood.
      I'm the same way. Would rather try to fix stuff myself than pay others to do it. That way, the next time it needs fixed I'll know how to do it. Plus, I may have to buy some new tools and such to get it done.

      Tools. They keep a dood out of trouble and in the workshop.

    7. I happen to have a wife that totally agrees with my tool habit too. Nice thing is, she considers guns as tools which will always pay a return.
      Yeah we're definitely an old skool pair.

  5. Ghostsniper you are absolutely correct "Anyway, being poor of wallet isn't the worst thing as long as you're fairly satisfied with your life style." I have made several financial decisions in the last 2 years based on my contentment level not on $$. Took a long time to get to this point, I sold my soul to "the MAN" for $$ for a lot of years. After the first wife died I took a long look at my life and said "screw this".

    2. It's one of life's major tragedy's that we don't learn early in life that the most precious thing is peace of mind. When the weather's nice I enjoy just sitting on the porch, maybe with a fresh cup of mud, and watching the wildlife, the trees, even the sky. I get some good thinkin' done too.

      The farther technology advances, the deeper the matrix, to where eventually the entire everything will be fake. I gotta get out.

    3. Transitioning to digital accomplished its mission. We robotized every possible job. But just like when we went Green Revolution Industrial Farming, there is no going back. The bad news is, we must wait for the collapse to see the end of digital. The good news is, it can't be too much longer.

  6. Very sobering article, Jim. I am a skilled tradesman who has never had trouble finding a job. But, that is true what you said: you can be highly skilled, but if more and more customers can't afford your services, skills are irrelevant. I work for a company that recently raised its labor rate from $140 to $160 per hour, and since then, I have noticed a significant drop in call volume. I used to get sent on 2-3 service calls on an average day. Lately, I'm averaging about one call per day.

    Also, I agree with ghostsniper that you can't put a price on peace of mind. So few people possess it these days. Instead, they have to resort to drugs, drink, shopping, etc., and/or be constantly stimulated by technology (smartphone, social media, TV shows, etc.).

    I hate technology, social media, et al, and rarely watch TV. I'd much rather go on a long walk with my dog.

    1. I blame the Protestant Work Ethic. We are raised ( or, at least, were ) to identify and glory in work. And there are few real jobs anymore. We want to build and create and instead shuffle papers or consumer goods. Yes, many other factors, like no family or couple unity. But it starts being unsatisfied professionally.
