SOFT SECESSION 4
I'm still running down to my bank any time I get a deposit, desperate to deplete the balance down to a minimum before the bank Bail In's me, and I know, beyond a shadow of any doubt whatsoever, even that podunk Nevada bank has already gotten a nice hefty bail OUT, as well. Where is my Orange Man Special? The way I look at it, they owe me at least $1200 just from the Obammy Insurance Industry Welfare “fees” I had to pay. Printer Broken? Would I join the other Grape Soda Rioters over such a small amount, given a reasonable chance of not being caught?
Naturally! The bankers have got to be the world's biggest idiots. They are looking to be stealing the trophy from the politicians, at this point. I mean, okay, we can give you a Mulligan for 2008. You caused the problem, then profited off of it, but in your defense you had no idea the derivatives failure would actually go global. And a lot of people drunk off unrealistic house equity did deserve a rude sobriety. But this time? This time you have no excuse, no reason to be profiting as we all lose our jobs. Holding up those checks? NOT a great strategic move.
Do you WANT riots in the streets? Because that's how you get riots in the streets. An executive order could have had those direct deposits done within the hour ( and don't quote the Constitution to me, as that bitch has been end run forever, and everyone does exactly as they wish. And there could have been another order freezing Amazon packages for three days, for the physical checks to get priority, for those without a bank account. If the checks STILL are not on the way, it is by choice alone ). Yes, I really think they want riots.
Why is anyone even filling out unemployment claims in the traditional manner? Send out postcards. Check two boxes. Yes, this is me and I'm unemployed and yes, I understand if I'm lying it is a $5k fine. Done. The post office runs far more efficiently than the state Unemployment Office. I am astounded at the idiocy here. Unless it is just the flu, bro. I won't get into that, as it would be a series of articles. I'm a LITTLE skeptical, but not enough to go out in public all the time. But I will just say on a side note that they fake video all the time, and that just because I know a guy with cancer doesn't mean we are all going to die from it.
Don't take that the wrong way-I just think we need to keep an open mind the entire time. If I'm naturally paranoid-relish and roll in it like a dog in stink-and I'm not whimpering in the corner over Beer Virus, doesn't that convince you to be alert for trickery? Anyway, either our Dear Leaders don't give two craps about us and don't fear us because most of these silly patriot bastards bought extra guns instead of extra ammo, or they are so incompetent that they cannot pour piss out of a boot. End result is that the public will start to lose their crap, soon enough.
Once that happens, and I submit that by that time we really are in a economic implosion so checks wouldn't even work at that point, the more local a politician is, the more they will be pumped and primed to subvert higher control and assume the mantle of king. Or at least warlord. Again, they might play nice and be diplomatic and pretend to go along with federal control ( in some cases, counties pretending to follow state control ) but in reality they are leaking at the nipples at the prospect of total control.
And how hard is it going to be, to organize an official militia? If the food is running, it will be rather easy to issue emergency orders putting a hoe in everyone's hands that cannot hold a rifle. No, I don't think the governors will do that in time. Right now, the only excuse they have is “social distancing”, so they can't organize for collective farming right now. If there is even going to be seed and fertilizer outside the Big Ag areas. So they wait too long, then the militia will ONLY be about stealing existing food.
I'm not implying that will be successful, either. The ATTEMPT will be made though, you betcha. Politicians make poor military leaders, as they are far too insulated from reality. Meaning they make stupid mistakes ( just to REALLY piss off everyone, George Washington was a politician and rich bastard above everything else. NOT a good soldier. And no, Trumptard, I am NOT a socialist. I have no problem with someone being rich. Unless he humps me over because of it. Jefferson was a man of means, but also a man of the people. Washington was a petty tyrant and scumbag, the evil shrouded in myth and lies ).
If your area has more crime than official control, most likely the gangs take over. Then they become like any other government ( just with more corruption-Turd World levels. And I'm going to say it-OtherColor areas WILL look like Africa ). If the government is beating on the backs of frightened Yuppies to comply and pay more, your police or sheriffs will take over control. I only focus on governors right now because they control most of the digital wealth. That COULD devolve rapidly ( depending on food distribution ).
Whoever controls the food distribution IS going to be the new government. And no, I don't think this will take too much longer to manifest itself. It Is All About The Food. When the oil system starts shutting down, the food system ( centralized ) shuts down. And regional thugs take power to take control of the food. And NO, it will NOT be yeomen farmers as it was historically here. Which I'll cover next time, as I complete this series ( I'll take a break and cover other topics ).

An interesting point of view from ZMan about how social distancing is a female way of responding to the virus:ReplyDelete
"The End Of Gynocracy"
When times are bad, women hide. Men go out and fight.
"Are we not men?!" Weeeellll.....Delete
Good. I like this social distance new cultural norms. Hope it sticks, as most folks in public are stinky scum bags, as well as insulting my eyes with offensive appearances and behaviors to match. I never cared for glad handers in bizness or upper crust social circle practice of wanting to palm my hand in greatings, stupid practice really. Wearing the three ppes: (mask, gloves, goggles) gives physchological stand off effects towards others. I will wear masks, gloves and goggles permanently in public now just to be all seat belt click it regular like. It will be a jamming effect for facial recognition tech, as well as the offensive camera and video screen playback of me shopping in a friggin walmart detergent aisle. Going to devise some sort of appocalypse attire ensemble for forays in public. Might as well play my deplorable outlander caste part to the hilt. Two can play that game.Delete
I'm hoping to continue my No Shopping level of existence. The only folks I see, at 50 feet, are dog walkers or those walking themselves. Less fat, stupid people in that category. It is almost a time capsule back forty years.Delete
It sounds ridiculous. And you’d look ridiculous. But really, you’d be better served wearing a full gas mask, since they not only have filtration, but they also protect the eyes. When I was a kid, I worked at a place that mixed concrete. Well, that powdered cement is some nasty stuff, let me tell you. I knew immediately that I would be wearing protective gear, and not one of those flimsy little paper masks, but rather, a full filtered respirator. The owner (A nice guy, but should have had a “Stein” suffix attached to his surname :D ) saw me wearing it, and to my surprise, offered to pay for it.Delete
“Never cared for glad handers in bizness or upper crust social circle practice of wanting to palm my hand in greatings, stupid practice really.”
I thought I was the only one. Don’t you just hate the low brow bastard, dumbass grin plastered on his face, that always has to gleefully stick his hand out to shake. For all you know, he might have just previously finger banged Rosie O’Dumbbell :D
Does anyone watch "Mahk"? Friggin hilarious. Here is the Burger King impossible burger:Delete
One of his shticks is he doesn't shake hands.
Haha! “You’re forehead has more lines than Amy Winehouses coffee table” :DDelete
You’re thinking of Monk, Jim. There’s also that What About Bob movie (Bill Murray). I get accused of being both by my brother, Butthole (Not his real name :D ). But you see, I see things that other people don’t see. Such as my mother grooming her dog that laid in the garage, in her piss all night long (the dog had a leaky bladder) on a floor that had been pissed, shit, and barfed on, 5 million times, by all the pets that we had in there over the years. Then, after pulling wads of piss drenched hair off the dog, proceeds to open the door knob to the house. Call me crazy, but I’m washing my hands after touching something like that. That’s probably more detail than you wanted, but I thought it might help shed some light on why I am the way I am :D
Mahk, in other video's, does the hand shake thing. It isn't in all of them. I didn't remember Monk until you mentioned him. I think that one is on Netflix or Amazon, just as an aside. Bill Murray annoys me more than not, in most movies. What About Bob was one of his worse ( I also am usually not fond of the Close Encounters actor dude. The two worst are Ben Stiller and Will Farrell. GAWD-those bastards annoy the crap out of me, 99 times out of 100 )Delete
Oops. I see. I thought you made a typo, since Monk has a similar MO. I’ll look him up.Delete
I think I've watched about a dozen episodes of Monk. Not sure I could binge watch all of them. I have to be in the right mood for his characterDelete
A nation of reactionaries. A Minionite with strong critical thinking ability and discernment skills is porch sitting with a view to behold during this current soap opera drama.ReplyDelete
The new tech allows the officials and private citizen alike to soap box broadcast whatever is the current virtue signalling topics dejoure. I don't really care for some stooge to skype from their home to broadcast how they are taking one for the team in the keister raw and dry as well as the rest of us piss ants. The politicians, media, entertainment, sports, corporations are all burning valuable broadcast airtime in an effort to remain relevant and be the louder pep rally boosters than anyone else. A competition of cone heads for dunce crowns.
Say it is a bio weapon in inception, but had spun off beyond target objectives into an uncontrollable direction. Now everyone is riding that tiger in myriad ways as that is the now and in thing to be doing. They as well will use it for new powers or consolidation, funding increases, and hero worship cult building, "thank you for your service, thin blue line, hug a heroic HCW today. (health care workers, new caste grouping, including the third world bedpan orderlies) With trillions in that gift grab bag, the greedy hands are thrust out like junkies prepping for an 8 ball shot in the arm. The parasitic leaching of the systems, >COMBINED< with resource contractions all along the way with the cuthroat competition for same, by millions and billions of individuals as well as groups, companies, differing tiers of .Gov is going to topple that old milk cow over that we collectively were suckling blissfully at all this time. Get yer belly and inventories filled quick like, and stay clear of those collapsing system edifices.
Jim's hair is the bestest in the Empire, by far.
As much as I despise poetry, your rhetoric is purple prose indeed. "Coneheads for dunce crowns" Sweet descriptive music.Delete
The D.T.s and withdrawal symptons are beginning to arise in the populace. Most proles are playing cooperatively at this dodge ball game only as a means to an end. They hold out false hopes for a god emperor edict to return to status quo, or cheery phone call from employers to report for work "all is well, comrade" like. A hard truth will come due like a red inked late payment notice. The .gov gibs payments, sba loan grants, unemployment payments, etc is nowhere close to the already and continuing losses of revenues versus 'manadatory' and ever increasing bill due requirements, public and private. Folks have generational lengths of time expectations of free wheeling shopping, leisure pursuits, living standards expectations, and those precious social herding needs to placate. (No friggin sports ball? wtf yo!) The wind up toy false flag provacatuers will be un leashed for politics as usual deflections soon enough. Unless I am proven wrong by a dramatic social and economic restart by those MAGA stalwarts rolling up the sleeves, there will be street chaos quite soon. Expect a long tough summer to come, and the hard winter as always follows regularly.ReplyDelete
Got wheat? Sure it's enough?
Don't got wheat? Good luck finding more!Delete
You got that right! Even the LDS folks can't get it out to the folks these days. I've got an order from a month ago STILL waiting, just learned today that of the five cases of staples I ordered from them, the only thing that's been shipped is white flour. The say the red wheat I ordered will be ready "after April 10", problem is thats what they said a month ago, that it would be ready "after March 10". And these are the folks who's very scripture calls for preparedness! ALMOST pulled the trigger on some freeze dried yak testicles yesterday, jic, and while they said the had it in stock, they made you "sign off" an acknowledgement stating delivery wouldn't happen until mid-June...Uh, no thanks. I was already on the fence and it was back ups for back ups anyway, certainly not gonna overpay now for food I may or may not see 2 months from now.Delete
The plague clearly isn't sufficient to cull the herds, bring on the riots! The idiots can beat each other and then die off in the ER waiting rooms where there are no medical personnel to assist. Sure, it'll take longer, but the end result is to the Minionites' benefit. Just stay out of the way, and let nature take its course.
Oh, and not for nothing, I was told yesterday to make a permanent cut of 5% to my department's annual budget. FOR STARTERS. That's over $105k to slash, just from my department. There's your "trickle down economics"! Our company is in trouble, so to help ourselves we have to screw the smaller companies that provide services and consumables to us. Guess what happens to them and THEIR suppliers? I predict much sorrow and pain to come our way. Plan accordingly fellow Minionites.Delete
And in other news, the stock market rallied on another 10 million jobs lost. LOL I hope the LDS'ers are getting smart and passive aggressively pushing out gentiles from buying their food. I don't want to worry about a million idiots to my east headed my way, to harvest sage brush and rabbits ( which I hope I never have to eat-some mangy nasty looking bastards. The rabbits, not the sage brush )Delete
This season is the one you MUST harvest sagebrush seeds and experiment with harvesting, winnowing, and eating them. Last year I think you said you didn't get around to it. Now it's game on, forage like a man :-)
Your right about the rabbits.Delete
No fat. You can actually eat a ton and still die from fat deprivation.
Romans-I'll work on a better excuse this year :)Delete
6:20-I'm more worried about them being full of parasites. I can fry in shortening.
The way this whole thing is unfolding has me questioning your post oil Dark Age Theory. The only way we have such a devastating collapse is if we hit a complete wall resource wise. What if the government is orchestrating this virus response in such a way that we are "flattening the curve" of collapse?ReplyDelete
Think about it, if enough agricultural areas are able to produce enough food to keep some semblance of order, even if only in pockets of civilization, they could, in theory, rebuild much quicker. Of course there will be a lot of fighting and hardship but if even just a few hundred communities survive that would be more than enough to keep technology from falling back to Bronze Age levels.
Food for thought.
Believe me, the way things are unfolding, I'm questioning me also. Of course, they stretch this out too much and all the infrastructure even for a bare bones Industrial Agriculture paradigm ( no econ activity except bread and circuses ) might be in danger. I would LOVE that they are competent enough to send us into a long low level of consumption oil plateau. I have my doubts thoughDelete
My thoughts exactly 10:20.Delete
Just getting the sheep used to doing with less and following orders.
Not to mention knock off a substantial amount of social security users.
I think they were doing pretty good with opioids killing off the old humps quicker.Delete
A lot of humor involves 'VibrantDiversity' and their tendency to self-help, righting the wrongs of centuries past.ReplyDelete
Usually, the self-help requires burning-looting and other rude behavior.
We operate a small farm near Eugene Oregon.
On those rare occasions we come across a VibrantDiversity, we are shocked!
Our immediate thoughts are along the lines of 'where did you come from!'.
The few VibrantDiversity hereabouts are unlikely to burn-loot their neighborhood in Oregon.
If they tried, they would get laughed out of town.
No, our rude folks are all Caucasian.
Some rude folks are the squatters living in warehouse-pallet hovels covered by blue tarps.
They are only a few thousand, identifiable by their diverse hygiene standards.
I suspect they will be 'self-policing', a polite way of saying the stronger will eat the weak.
In this case, 'stronger' is a relative term.
The addled and the marinated are coming from a position of weak-weaker-weakest.
The other thousands of rude folks are well-dressed and well-spoke.
They often own homes in TheNicerNeighborhoods.
Their Prius or Volt or Leaf is clean with hardly any cracks in the windshield.
If they reproduce, they reproduce miniature versions of their VisionForSociety, and enroll them in OnlyTheBestSchools.
These rude folks run the governments and fuss about at the Eww teaching the gullible to be empowered.
They are over-worked and under-paid, and don't they know it!
Some people -- not me, never -- seem to believe the non-productivity of rude folks is grounds for a time-out so they can consider the error of their ways.
Fortunately for them, a few realists can easily assist them.
To see the error of their ways.
A few realists, volunteering.
After the assistance, grand amounts of extra stuff will be available.
Do you have your NicerNeighborhood home picked-out?
What color Prius are you inheriting?
Sadly, I imagine a lot of professorial positions in academia may go unfilled for quite some time.
The stigma of association with that vile lot will linger for at least a couple-three generations.
Sadly, our species has short memories, and soon, a voice will rise, proclaiming the need for a Eww of higher education.
Or the need for a committee of rule-makers with the need for 'appropriate measures'.
Some realists -- not me, never -- will probably smother that voice with a pillow, proclaiming it was an accident.
And those in-the-know will nod aggreably.
My Prius will be blue to match my eyes.
I'm all about the accessorizing.
Thank goodness someone still has standards. Why can't you go through the die-off well dressed and groomed? I envision matching Hello Kitty items for myself. Just a color change to black and OD green. I wanted a HK backpack BOB, but the hot pink was a deal breaker.Delete
I had a friend that was dealing with the Russians 20 years ago. He was importing model airplane motors and his supplier had to deal with the mafia. He was told that the Russian's would rather deal with the mafia than the government because unlike the government when the mafia was bribed they staid bribed.ReplyDelete
There might be honor among thieves in the Mafia, but not in the government.Delete
Asked the LOL today...are you glad now days ,that you married my crazy prepper ass ? She replied, I sure as hell am . Only thing thing that drives me mad , she said. How on Earth are you always proven right about these predictions of shit hitting the fan ?ReplyDelete
Called this one back in January to look out for big trouble in the economy soon. Of course the signs have only been accelerating for quite some time. The Con with Don is on...the trade wars insured trouble soon. Then by the end of January the heat got turned up and I started warning all who would listen to get ready for big trouble coming out of China.
Everyone laughed except her...and Jim of course, but he already knew as did I .
Funny, she loves it that I'm always right but says too she hates it that I'm right. Just wish it were so easy to predict good times too.
The NOL knows how dangerous it is to pat me on the head, so we cannot have a frank discussion of how awesome I am. But I know she knows.Delete
Believe me it don't happen often. Besides you and I both know it's easy, when you read lots and pay attention to happenings around the world. Granted , having a few friends in high places don't hurt.Delete
Have a friend whose sister is the head Doctor in a certain branch of the military and another who is an epidemiologist. They both alerted us to this COVID 19 thing possibly becoming a real issue.
That's funny. My wife has never told me she's glad I do this stuff, but I have heard her saying to our adult daughter "aren't we fortunate that your father thinks about this stuff?". I dont think she knows that I know that she knows this lifestyle is for the best, cuz you know she cant have my ego swelling or anything, but I'm really glad I dont have the arguments over preps that a lot of people apparently have.Delete
Spud-did you read Cannibal Reign? "A Friend In High Places" alerts the main character to the nuke war coming. Yeah, it's a trope, but the author did a great job with it.Delete
jl-I don't think people have a problem with their wives disagreeing about prepping, I think they have a problem with having a spouse that doesn't want to be there with them. All the tricks to sneak in preps doesn't fix a fundamentally bad relationship.
The title Cannibal Reign doesn't sound familiar, but that doesn't mean anything. You know how it is after reading literally thousands... I'll check it out after the current one I'm on called , The Last Pandemic...some Erie parallels to our current one.Delete
I'm definitely blessed with a woman who has common sense and is old school.
In February my ex still planned to fly my daughter here cross country for spring break. I told her this virus crap and the response that it isnt going to happen. She was saying it nothing but I told her wait and see the response. Couple weeks later she had to all but admit i was right. I wont see her this summer either. Maybe next Christmas. She turns 16 in a couple weeks. Its hard but safer.Delete
Yeah, I'm wondering if I'll even ever see mine again. Even the parental units, only 300 miles away, are probably not going to see a visitDelete
Spud- if I redid my Top 10 PA Novel List, that one would be in there. Good enough I've read it three times. He did nothing new, but captured the tone and setting like few others. The author was a cop in a Diversity City, if I recall correctly. I think the best writers saw the elephant.Delete
James, just looked and turns out I purchased that one way back in may of 13. No wonder I don't remember fully, seeing that would have been a couple thousand books ago.Delete
But I own it, so it's certainly been long enough for a re read !
Please let me know if you think it belongs on a top ten list.Delete
Roger that, I will !Delete
Surprisingly my reading has slowed way down , since this pandemic thing inspired me to read more on the subject.
Admittedly it normally wasn't my favorite genera. It and zombie crap I've always shied away from. The zombie stuff just always , because of the implausibility.
Pandemics are a very real possibility tho...I think perhaps the reason for avoiding them was the fact that one can hardly prepare for such an event and the liklyhood of being a survivor just ain't high.
I've found it difficult to read this current one , not because it's so much bad...as the current news and reality too closely match what I'm reading ! Thus it strangely makes me quickly lose interest. Go figure !
Although I will admit it has given me some helpful insights already.
Doesn't help when I've got several projects going too. Tasking me physically to the point that my health gets degraded enough that I feel bad. Then the brain starts imagining that I've come down with the bug fer crissakes. But never fear I'll finish the current one and give you a review of the other here sometime soon...
Yeah, nobody wanted to read about poor people in the 1930's-the detectives and Conan's did much better. I moved all that wheat a few weeks ago, felt great the next few days so did more physical activity. Then got a flu. Luckily stomach flu so I didn't freak out. Just my body telling me to say goodbye to testosterone and an active lifestyle. And I don't even go crazy like you do!Delete
Not crazy...just motivated to keep myself moving forward. Have rung hells gate too many times and realize just how little time ive got left ?Delete
My body readily accepts the morning power walk. Good Jim, biscuit for you! As soon as I do too much more except regular moving around ( painting, sweeping, house bitch chores ), I get a slap down. I spend decades trying to ignore my body ( no, no you can't go hump anything in a skirt ), and now I have to listen to it?Delete
Popular, Lord Bison!ReplyDelete
My only question is who gets which albums? I'll take the Led Zep, California can have the Tom Petty.
Motorhead? Johnny Cash? John Denver? All mine.
I'd be happy with The Doors and Pink Floyd.Delete
