acting depressed 3


ACTING DEPRESSED 3
China's rise economically can be largely attributed to burning a butt ton of soft dirty coal. Rather than compete with the US for oil that we were buying with worthless Treasury Bonds, she used domestic coal until reaching a point she could compete with buying oil, in exchange for real goods. Hmmmm, I wonder why that didn't work out well for us? A conundrum to be sure. Oh, and by the way, China gives two runny craps for all the purple hair sky screamers bloviating on Gore Warming. To think that adorable Greta didn't convince them to surrender sovereignty.
*
As China runs out of coal, AND has far more built infrastructure now using more energy, her economic growth rate is now one third of what it was. Getting more energy leaves less energy to fuel growth. This is simple Common Core math, folks. Less energy, less growth, and now global economic contraction. Economic contraction equals money creation causing more troubles, as less energy underlies wealth creation. More currency covering less energy is currency inflation. Again, simple math. Now enter low EROI energy into the equation. More energy intensive extraction equals less net energy available.
*
Chinese inflation from less energy, US inflation from less oil holding up the PetroDollar. And inflation everywhere else from printing more currency for the leftover scraps of energy. The entire world economy is in contraction from inflation. Why would you assume the US is immune? You think the US is the worlds premier economy, even with unemployment north of 30%. It sure as hell ain't programmers working under the table as that industry goes to Dot Not Feather Indian work visa suppressed wages.
*
Do you understand why Detroit is in so much trouble, despite a bail out and cars doubling in price even as quality implodes? The growth of US drivers/miles driven has stopped. Remember how you need growth to service debt interest? Less people can afford the luxury of driving, as our economy contracts. Unemployed people certainly can still drive, until that status becomes permanent. Large sections of the country have zero jobs to offer. Most in the Deplorable Fly Over section. Even Proud Purple areas such as Florida depend on welfare payments, the strip of sand otherwise a malarial wasteland that Disney World cannot support as fewer families can drop a grand a visit.
*
In the end of course, economic contraction is a faith based conclusion. You cannot change someones mind. I can argue all day long trying to convert an atheist or a socialist, a Darwinist or a anarchist, and all the proof in the world will fall on death ears. Not because anyone is stupid, but because one mans proof is another's propaganda. The programming we have is how we interpret the reality we experience. If you don't change the programming through pain, the reality does NOT change. Believe it or not, this is a survival mechanism. Group based reality strengthens the group.
*
Only a society drowning in energy excess could think that individuals are stronger without a group ( relax, hermit advocates. We are still right, because all other potential tribe mates are so self-centered they do in fact make it impossible to Group Up with them. I speak of our civilization as a whole ). Historically, we had to subvert our personal needs to that of the group. And when the whole group thought this was a good idea, then that reality was acceptable to all. It wasn't even an option we chose. It WAS reality. We gave our life willingly, or chose other ways to strengthen the group such as through excess breeding ( ask a gal how much abuse her body went through with just one kid. Now multiple exponentially ).
*
Now, if you gave me a choice, how would you like to lose a limb so that sixty year old drooling bastard can continue living, I'd tell you to piss off and die yourself. But if I was raised that the reality is the young males place their lives on the line to protect the entire tribe, and in return my family was protected, I go from one guy protecting a squad to my platoon protecting my squad, the math alone sells the sacrifice. But that implies choice and math. Not everyone is good at making the right choices ( ask me how I know ), nor, especially, math. So you make the math reality.
*
Hence, self deception and believing stupid crap actually works for people. Historically. Just because that doesn't work for you during a civilization collapse doesn't invalidate its species survival purpose most of the time. But right now, you are seeing the disadvantage of blind faith as a human trait. My programming is doom and gloom. Everything I see and observe is “proof” of that. If you don't share the same programming, everything I say to you is a droning background noise. Which is why only preaching to the choir is helpful. All I'm doing in practice is trying to sell you on your preconceived reality, but teach you that because you weren't informed fully, you might be unaware of the dangers.
*
If you are a Fracking Fan Boy and are just into survivalism for the guns and camping equipment, absolutely nothing I say here will alter your consciousness. All the proof in the world is useless because proof only works in a shared reality. Why am I even being paid to write this, other than as a deliverer of confirmation bias? How embarrassing. Well, there is SOME value. When everyone else surrounding you is attempting to alter your reality, I suppose a beacon of sanity is comforting. That is me, not a logical voice is a sea of insanity, but a comforting teddy bear :)
*
So let me ask you this. What could you possibly do to prepare for an economic collapse that was going to have any negative consequences in the long run? Is getting out of debt bad? Stocking more food? Buying more guns? Well, perhaps that one. But only if other areas of preparedness suffer as a result. What if you acted rashly and quit your job and left the wife and moved out to desert junk land? Why would you be worse off? You nuked your credit score and ditched the bitch. What down side are you looking at?
*
Let us say, I wanted to be in contention to win this years Moron Of The Universe contest, and I went back to work because I love extra crap for a little extra money. I've been self employed for several years. The employer probably thinks I was actually in jail. So, I just print up a few dozen of my books, and bring them with me to job interviews. Offer one while talking about your absence from the workplace. You imply you have proof of ( self ) employment. See how easy that was to cover for my “rash” decision to piss on working for The Man? You just need to not burn bridges, and all is well.
*
So, you either don't believe me at all and only visit here to be abused and ridiculed ( and who am I to judge that a bad thing? ), or you simply are not convinced of my argument based on just the timing ( you're sure we'll get around to it ). Just take my argument that the economic collapse has already started, on the basis of “better two years early than one minute late”. You can't hurt yourself and could possibly help. If I'm wrong, I have little problem being ridiculed myself.

  1. Back in the early 80's I lost a great job and found myself on welfare . Actually under Reagan it was Workfare which was pretty cool . You worked at cleaning shitters and such at the fire department where they were stinging the tax cattle for 20 bucks an hour even back then . Anyways they sent me to a local tech school class given by one of the higher welfare ladies and they taught me how to perform a proper job search . Creative lying coupled with the fact that only 3 % of hiring people ever check up to see if you are lying and I have never yet been out of work for more than a day . Yes , the lying democrats taught me how to convincingly lie and assured my success ! God bless em everyone . Now I'm retired but still have that lying power and I could find a job in a New York minute . Shades of gray is the democrat term for lying by the way . You remember that cop that testified against you in court don't you ? Shades of grey ! Ha!Ha!Ha!

    4. In the 1980s there were a shitton of trade schools that you could go to, also. Everything from machine shop to computers, and seeing how far computers have come, who knows, when I was unemployed at the very end of the 80s maybe it would have made sense to go to one of the computer schools.

  2. I spent the other morning working outside around a open fire to keep warm. Needed a certain sized bolt to repair what I was working on. Of course I had every bolt known to man except the one I need. So I extinguished my fire and headed to town. The lady at the counter ask what the smell was, and I told her I use liquid smoke as cologne. Ha! Ha! 40 mile round trip for a damn bolt. I find myself needing a bolt more often than a AR15 or a Flir.

    1. Of course, with a FLIR you can throw it at an enemy raccoon and do more hit points than with a bolt.

  3. “Even Proud Purple areas such as Florida depend on welfare payments, the strip of sand otherwise a malarial wasteland that Disney World cannot support as fewer families can drop a grand a visit.”


    I was curious about that, and asked my mother. She said that you can’t get out of Disneyland these days, without spending around a $130 a day, but there’s no way that you can even come close to doing most of it in a day. So figure that amount times 3 or 4, or more.

    I’m probably the one oddball minion that has never been to Disneyland/World, and never plans on it. I suppose Uncle Walt would spinning in his grave like a 78rpm record (Or whatever the hell speed records spun at 80 years ago when the dude was still alive) if he could see what became of his once great studio. He would probably be particularly displeased to see Geppetto’s poor parenting skills :D

    1. LOL. Great clip. We went to Disneyland on a regular basis when kids, living in the metro area. Going back 13 years later for the last time, I was amazed at how crappy it was. Not because I was grown, but because I never remembered the lines being slow, originally. I sure wouldn't go now, for many reasons, but mainly because I see it as Muzzie False Flag Target #1.

    2. Traveling across the US on a 75-MPG motorcycle and staying in near-fleabag motels will cost you $130 a day so Dizzyland sounds like a bargain if you're into that kind of thing.

    3. Both sound stressful and pointless. Of course, I moved so often in my life any trip sounds bad. PS-people are dingus holes no matter where you go.

    4. Okay, so figure $130 for a motel and a day at Disneyland, so $260 daily. My mother says that it takes at least 2, but realistically, 3 days to get through it all, so now you’re up to $780. But now you have to add in gas (Unless you live next door) food, and the assorted trinkets that the women and children are going to want. So Jim’s estimate of $1k is probably a little on the low side when all is said and done.

      May as well just start and end with the ass pirates of the Caribbean tour, because that’s how your bum is going to feel upon exiting that place (figuratively speaking of course :D )

  4. Yeah, why is China burning coal and exporting solar to us?

    Burning questions.

    1. To fund their military so we can't invade them. I think it was at least ten years ago I learned almost all houses have solar hot water heaters there. Even the really poor rural farming houses. So they aren't neglecting their own back yard
