beer virus and peak oil 2


BEER VIRUS AND PEAK OIL 2
HERE is a nifty article on Peak Oil. This will not change any of your minds. I do not include it for that reason. Fracking Fanboys will be waving the flag vigorously midst a sea of stalled cars after Civil War Three, after the former United States has a total of three million people coast to coast, bellowing for Trump to come make America great again as they proclaim to all and sundry that FIFTY Saudi Arabia's are underneath the Colorado Rockies, by gum and by golly. If that is you, just ignore the article and continue stocking Treasury Bonds.
*
No, I include it only for the reason that it mentions a lack of diesel fuel extracted from fracking, and that fracking was almost all the oil growth in the last ten years, globally. And that little gem, added to the recent twenty plus percent of oil no longer imported by China-which was the first week of February and is now probably worse-got me to thinking how a complete collapse of Chinese factory goods to our country is actually beneficial. Not to the fracking industry, which is lower grade oil at huge expense no one else wants.
*
As I've said, fracking oil almost always lost money. And now with a liquidity issue the banks are having, the derivatives markets collapsing ( proof? $50-$100 BILLION with a B, every night, even weekends now. For five months. That is all the proof I need-your mileage varies, as usual, about everything ), the fracking industry just saw Peak last year and needs huge amounts of new capital at the same time the derivatives collapsing demands full attention and resources from Red Shield. There is plenty of surplus oil. That no one wants.
*
Diesel fuel is the only fuel, by and large, that hauls everything around our big ass continent. Since everything is centralized and Just In Time, and it requires FUEL to do that, can you possibly do the math how we can have Fuel, Fuel, Everywhere, And Not A Drop To Burn? It is the wrong kind of fuel to feed us and warm us. We need diesel, and that supply has been moving in the wrong direction for some time ( feel free to refer to the above linked article ). What is the ONE thing that could have happened, to stretch out the remaining fuel that we need, and aren't getting from fracking, and even if we were that crap will shortly run out?
*
Ding, Ding, Ding, give the minion the booby prize! That's right, Nancy, you've just won an all paid trip to RealityVille! Do not pass Go and you get dingus for money. If all the consumer crap we buy from China was no longer zipping about the country, a whole lot more diesel would be available for food and the military. They couldn't push down demand enough with the pretend Green anti-pollution additives, nor with the Retail Apocalypse, so the next logical step is to simply cancel the consumer economy altogether. Isn't analysis fun?
*
And everything that scares the crap out of us, like 80% of ALL pharmaceuticals being made in China, our government just loves. Think of all the rural Deplorables we can kill off, just from lack of meds. No worries, Red Scum, just come move to Smurfville and give up your guns and you can get the medicine we are giving out to The Chosen. What? What do you mean you cannot drive here? Fracking Fuel For All! Oh, they repo'ed the car after you were unemployed as the stock market crashed to 2,000? Start walking. Or, didn't we mail a HoverRound to your fat ass?
*
Perhaps you can juice up at the nearest Tesla station powered by the wind turbines we promised to install during Green Obammy's reign. What, Tesla can't get any car parts from China, and the cars keep catching fire? No worries the new stock price of $2,247 should reflect those market fears. You can retire off that and your Amazon shares at $1,154, discounted for having no merchandise to ship. But they have awesome cloud service! Let them eat Prime movies. The new Jack Ryan season, all four episodes, will only take another two years to be released.
*
Without jobs, Americans pay no taxes and take out no debt, and hence are of no value to the banks or the government. The money will be made by gov borrowing all operating expenses, including the interest on the last loan. Now THAT is a business plan. But to do its job, the government needs energy. It needs to fuel the troop carriers to protect the Great Plain cereal crops, and move it to the cities, plus the troops needed to patrol fly-over country to keep the Deplorables away from the food and the cities. Most of the militia will starve in place, as they bugged in out of Virus fears, and they were stranded with one tank of gas apiece, no resupply. Ever.
*
I guess if you had listened to Jim you wouldn't have been so reliant on gasoline. Not that it mattered, because all Red towns don't get resupplied either. You can raid a nearby Smurf city, ambush a convoy, or break out the stew pot. Just as lack of trade defeats America, it also kills all off Team Constitution. The US might be down to four million barrels a day of conventional oil and one of fracking, but its government needs a lot less than its 250 million citizens who didn't surrender all of their freedoms for residency in the coastal reservation. And even they are just waiting for further fuel shortages before they become the next SoyLent Green.
*
Beer Virus could kill everyone, or just Ornamentals. No difference, because the lack of fuel and food kills everyone a lot better. And the FedGov already has the perfect excuse to do this, the lack of trade, the collapse of all industries not nationalized, the end of the Fracking Industry ( “no sales, we had to shut them down” ). Just as the Chinese elite can still remain in power with only 300 million citizens, the US bankers see a better profit when the population gets down to double digit millions rather than triple digit.
*
FDR paid back his handlers stealing all our gold and killing hundreds of thousands in a war we encouraged. Obammy keeps getting millions in speaking engagements as the citizens are dying from lack of medical care. Trump's “miracle economy” will kill millions. The death count will continue to spiral until we revert back to carrying capacity, and the sad fact now is that EROI energy is too low for 333 million. The culling has already begun. Ready?

  1. Hard red winter wheat, 40 lbs bucket for$45.98 on Amazon. Last week I called the company and was told that the shelf life is 25 years unopened and no need to add anything to it. I’ll buy 10 for starters. Why is Walmart selling it for $114.06?

  2. Never mind, one the Amazon item was white white. Both labels show 150 calories per serving and 6% protein. Why not go with white? I can make 4 more 10 bucket orders and have enough for 4 percent for close to a year, then I can concentrate on building a pole type greenhouse.

    1. White wheat is less protein than red wheat. White is usually what is sold. It will only matter if wheat is your only protein, though.

  3. Both buckets say 6 grams protein. That’s not trustworthy? Walmart app on the label, zoomed in.
    I can’t speak words into comment boxes the past 2 days on this cell phone. Noticed my own typing errors above.

  4. Dearie me, takes me back to 70's youth, filled with schlock horror films by Roger Corman & Ed Wood.

    I can see a future 2020's film from Boogaloo Productions, Inc. starring Jim "Lord Bison" Dakin.
    Let's sketch out something for your PA scenario.

    Setting... a wheat field in mid-June 14 miles east of Perryton TX. Blindingly bright sky blasted by the blowing dirt and wheat chaff. The scene reminiscent of David Lean's landscape camera work. Full horizon dividing the screen between an otherworldly azure blue sky and the dunn colored field. The sacred and the profane in an age old embrace.

    A big Green Machine (Deere, not Army) is finishing the last swath cut of wheat on the first 1280 acres. Only 44 million more acres to cut before this beast and it's brethren reach the Canadian border in Sept.
    A squad of camo wearing, suburban born troopies languidly perform overwatch on the perfectly flat landscape. No cell service with which to play games on their phones. Listless and unaware.
    FedGovt's finest 'protecting' recently requisitioned grain.

    Unbeknowest to the troopies, hardscrabble Deplorables are hunkered down in the borrow ditch adjacent to the headland. They've been in place since before dawn. The ditch is the only cover for miles around. Our hero, Lord Bison, has chosen the ambush well.

    Waiting...waiting for the big Green Machine to reach the headland and commence it's slow laborious turn, the hopper top heavy with grain. The combine comes to a stop and disgorges it's fullness into a waiting grain truck. After the auger drops the last bushels of grain the truck pulls out of the newly shorn field. With a hand wave a Deplorable drives out of the field. The corpse of the original driver covered by a tarp bleeds out on passenger side floorboard.
    This load of grain won't make it to FedGovt elevators.

    Turning, turning...the Deere turns about face in the headland....suddenly the sound of a .303 round from a century old Lee Enfield rings out. The great Green Beast is too big a target for even the 5 MOA Enfield to miss. Diesel and hydraulic fluid spout and catch fire on the hot engine.

    .303 & .270 rounds puncture the engine cowling and crack heavy forged steel. The more numerous 5.56 eventually manage to shatter the cabin glass after numerous shots.

    Minutes later all that is left is a black soot filled column of smoke from the dead Green Beast. The vertical column visible for miles. Vultures begin to circle in a horizontal plane. Seen from an angle the circling vultures and smoke column form a cross.
    Lord Bison and his retinue police their position, bag any identifying material and ride off on liberated BLM ponies from a 'rescue' center.
    Tonight they eat flat bread from wheat fresh from the field.

    Man that is born of woman is of few days and full of troubles.

    1. Damn, dude! You could be writing novels. Point: the Lee-Enfield no1 ( WWI ) is a 4 MOA factory acceptance standard. The Lee-Enfield no4 ( WWII ) is 2 MOA. Ones mileage varies with wear and ammo and maintenance, but note even an AR gets 4 MOA with Tulammo. And, see YouTube with 223 vs 7.62x39 ammo tests on a junked car. Not as bad as thought

      Delete
    2. The Enfield 5 MOA was an "elbow nudge to the ribs". Lol. Just to prick ya!
      I like the .303 based on ballistics & weight but I've never fired an Enfield. ...hmmm..maybe a battlefield pickup someday.

      I figured if you can write fiction like today's essay (i.e. Diesel from frack oil & RedShield) I could take a swing at it. Ha! 😄

      I just had to use some Bison 'tropes' like Enfields, flat bread and wheat. Presto. Post Apoc porn has yet another scribbler.

      Only thing I left out was description of your fair mane. I should have had you leaning against a county road sign non-chalantly combing your locks in the presence of the enemy like the Spartans at Thermopyle. Lol.

      Delete
    3. I did enjoy reading this wheat field fiction. Please write more.

      Delete
    4. Now that you mention my flowing mane,it did seem to leave a hole. Otherwise, perfect. Better do an EMP though, as Fracking Forever doesn't leave many ways for society to collapse. You could cash in, but do it quick before it becomes real, on a pandemic. It's only fun and games now. I don't think you'll find any Enfield battlefield pick-ups. Only the really smart survivalists have them, so they will probably only be found in underground lairs years after the collapse, next to a body that died naturally from old age.

      Delete
  5. Not survivalist related (Well, in a way it is :D ) but another story from the land of fruits and nuts:


    “Mike Hughes, a California man who is most known for his belief that the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee, finally blasted off into the sky in a steam-powered rocket he had built himself.”

    But in the process, was only able to prove that he was as flat as a Frisbee, and that what goes up, must come down; sometimes harder than expected (I’m sure there’s probably a few other idioms hidden in there somewhere, but I’ll let the Darwin awards folks take over from here :D )

  6. I am in need of a intervention because I am a fracking fanboy. As long as they keep pumping and sending me 4 or 5 hundred per month. I cheer and plan new purchases every check. I will be even happier when the oil is gone and post oil times are here. I have been walking and bicycling, can't wait for everyone else to have to also.

    1. I couldn't interpret the sarcasm level. Just beware. Chinese oil use had been down six months prior to Beer Bug, their economic activity falling and inventory surging. Now they are a minimum of 20% below that already low level. The rest of the world will follow. Fracking unless nationalized or subsidized massively, more so than now, will be the hardest hit due to its high cost of production. Don't worry, my Amazon commission will follow your oil one.
