USS titanic made in china


USS TITANIC MADE IN CHINA
Don't take it personally, but I dislike you. If you think Trump is our savior, if you think the Empire is strong and desirable, if you think we will return to Business As Usual with a couple of weeks, you are a deluded fool. And I dislike fools. It is one thing to be oblivious, unaware there is even a problem, not understanding Black Swans exist. It is quite another to have all the disheartening information at your fingertips and ignore reality because it is inconvenient to your pleasure of luxurious living. News flash, there, hotshot. The Titanic is already taking on water.
*
And you think the Trump Tug is going to show up before steerage is full of water, and tow us back to the Unicorn Pier for rescue and repairs? Orange Man, the same twat who constructed a few dozen miles of border fence ( some of which was so bestly Constructed In America it blew down in a wind storm. Not a tornado. Not a hurricane. Regular wind ) and at the same time let in more Latino's legally? The same guy who started a trade war with China, right before all our hospitals ran out of Chinese made medical equipment? THAT is the guy making America great again?
*
Look, I'm not bashing on the guy. Even if we had elected Ross Perot, and kept those pesky North Koreans from assassinating his family during the campaign ( yeah, my bet? It was Hilary threatening him to force him out of the running ), exactly the same collapse would be unfolding right now. The Cult Of Personality does NOT produce resources where there are none. Ask North Korea. Let me repeat this for the meatheads that keep reading me. The Colorado “energy goldmine” was dismissed back in the WWII era as being too expensive financially AND net energy wise. And in case you missed it, that was back when we knew how to build industry cheap and quick and well and the dollar wasn't inflated away.
*
We have nearly no industry today. Detroit cannot even build auto's with the machines on hand. Let alone ventilators ( that is just a distraction anyway, as is the “on high investigation as to who is responsible for this pandemic” which is about as deadly as the last super flu-and in which denying people non life threatening medical care is killing more than the Beer Virus ). You cannot just magically create an industrial economy. It took China decades, after many false starts. They can erect a building quicker than we can permit for one. Sure, the Chinese buildings fall down. So do our pedestrian bridges.
*
This isn't just lack of the correct capitalist government, or lack of hiring the correct gender. It is also the lack of quality material, available in quantity. And yet once again, into the breech my friends- for THIRTY years we have been mining ore in ever diminishing concentrations, with more and more oil, until we have reached the point that the oil runs down as the ores do. Our resources have been running out. Yes, you can ALWAYS pump $200 oil and mine $30 a pound steel. Those commodities will never run out as long as the machines to extract them are built. But our economy cannot run on those higher priced items.
*
You fight the current war with the weapons on hand, and you run an economy on the current economic structure. Our structure is high levels of cheap energy and nearly free commodities. Neither of which have been available for some time. So the system drifts towards collapse without the correct inputs. Like running a high octane petroleum engine ( made by Chrysler ) on ethanol, it will run, inefficiently, until all the parts rust from the high water content.
*
Fracking oil was never a replacement for conventional oil, it was just the only growth in fuel we could get ( no energy growth, no economic growth ). And it was greatly diminishing return growth ( like buying back your own company stock when you don't have any customers-it looks good on paper only ). And JIT is no replacement for making our own goods as needed. It was just giving the appearance of inventory that was being drawn down. Your hero priest up in Idaho was warning you about JIT forever. Now that its demise is here, you act all surprised? Like we can instantly transform back to 1960's factory economy?
*
Our “bestest ever” currency is built of unsecured debt, backed by diminishing oil supplies in Saudi Arabia, who has been sniffing around China as its newest protector. A bunch of Sand OtherColors are smarter than the American public who think once pumping starts, the oil never runs out. Like in Pennsylvania, the Caspian, Ohio, Los Angeles. Don't make me continue embarrassing you. All women have the same girly parts, but they certainly are NOT created equal. That is why fat and ugly gals have a hard time getting laid. And not all carbon fuels are created equal. You cannot run a Texas Sweet economy on fracking oil.
*
We are nearing 45% unemployment ( 270 million working age adults, minus the 100 million long ago no longer working, plus the 20 million newly unemployed in the last few weeks. I hate math, and even I can figure that out ). This is nearly twice the amount of the Great Depression that lasted a dozen years and only was solved by total military industrial complex employment. Which we cannot duplicate-we could barely afford extra Food Stamps this last time the economy went on life support. That is because the printer only works with a password, and only the bankers have the code. CitiBank and Cargill was the main beneficiary of that food welfare program anyway.
*
The economy keeps getting worse. Not better. As most of us are imprisoned in urban hives, as the centralized food system is failing. Great Empires don't have 45% unemployment. They don't have currencies backed by 110% of GDP debt, and diminishing energy supplies. They aren't run by bankers, supplied with everything to keep them running by their enemies. Screw everything you think you know about Beer Virus. Smoke and mirrors. All you need to know is the economic collapse is already here, there is no saving us ( because we relied on globalism, and global trade is frozen ) and past greatness is no guarantee of future success.

  7. We all know the outcome of the Henry Ford vs. Standard Oil fight but even if Henry had won, the empire would have probably peaked by now. In the early days of E85 there was an .80 cent spread per gallon which was most likely the case due to subsidies. The energy to grow corn and distill ethanol is probably as expensive as drilling oil but would we truly trash the food supply in favor of fuel? That's the argument anyway.

    The bottom line is usage and people won't curtail usage unless it's rationed or too high at the pump. Our normal forays into town pre-plague were once a month with a list making the rounds for supplies. Our neighbors were in and out of their driveways multiple times a day. Plenty of fuel to burn as well as time!

    Before industrialization we had those wonderful cottage industries that were squeezed out by the .corps in lockstep with .govs. There's still some cottages around and today they are producing masks and selling them to their neighbors via NextDoor. Historically, we've been getting screwed every century save for that very short period of Ben Franklin and his Colonial Scrip.

    Awesome metaphor, O creative scribe of the pristine hair!

    I'm definitely no liberal, and neither is my wife, but unfortunately, she thinks Trump will be our savior. I know better, but won't pop her Trump bubble, because she likes to argue, and I don't.

    Another data point in our slow slide down the toilet: While my work truck stopped at a red light at a highway off-ramp, I noticed that the panhandlers are becoming more aggressive. I tried to ignore the guy, and he actually tapped on my drivers window (eventually he moved on to the next car).

    1. The panhandlers aren't hungry. They are withdrawing as the drugs from China run out. So his aggressiveness isn't hunger. Just typical junkie crap. But it does point to us being back to a 70's economy, anyway.

    5. Laying or meat birds? I would think eggs would go a ways to satisfying the fat craving. But what about shortening at least? Nasty, but perhaps necessary come the time.

    6. I keep the chickens for eggs. I don't really enjoy eating or cleaning chicken. Also without a fridge it's to much meat at one time.
      Quail taste so much better and 1 is the perfect meal. They are much easier to clean. I have around 70 right now. They are quieter and need less feed. Getting around 40 to 50 eggs per day, take 4 or 5 to equal a regular chicken egg. I give some away and pickle jars full. Around 10 one gallon jars before winter. I like adding jap peppers. Soon I will cull around 60 for canning. And run another 60 before fall.
      I will start a dutch oven stew and put up around 30 jars of quail stew and 30 jars of rabbit stew. Then in fall I will start killing squirrels and try for 30 jars also.
      I grow all the potato, onion, and carrot for the stews. With the late fall acorns and fruit and nuts I can gather was almost enough for last winter. Trying to ramp up for more this year.

    7. Do you buy vinegar in bulk? Is there such a thing? I'm hearing half vinegar/half water for fridge pickles, full vinegar for room temp pickles, up to about a year. Are too many pickles good for my stomach? Many questions. Learn as I go, since I spent too much time over the last few years with my nose in a book on computer screen. I guess this is as good of incentive as I'm getting :)

      Delete
    8. I buy 6 one gallon plastic bottles of vinegar in a box at Costco in the city. With the volume of tiny eggs I can usually pickle 10 one gallon jars.
      I have tried making pickles but I can't get them right. They end up not being crunchy and with just dill they don't taste like I want, they lack something.
      I wish my grandma was still alive, she canned the best pickles and beets. So much she could of taught me if I had only known to listen when I was younger.

  14. More shitting on the US today, Jim? Barely a thing you proffer is true or can be substantiated. Out of date facts (sic), false assumptions and contorted conclusions.

    You ignore the fact that steel production worldwide is probably made of 50% recycled material (hello NuCor). You are stuck on a energy intensive raw ore extraction mindset that faded 40 years ago. The importance of that raw ore process sank almost 50 years ago on the Edmund Fitzgerald. Recycled metals of all types are central and critical to world supply we simply dont need to extract raw ore. Duh!

    Also stuck on decades out of date info and trying to use it to buttress weak arguments (i.e. ethanol damaged car engines). Negro please!

    As for claim it took ChiComs decades to develop an industrial economy....hey, guess what. THEY NEVER DID. Not a bit of homegrown breakthrough or invention. EVERY F'N thing in China is either stolen from the West or willingly transferred in by globalist elite.

    "We have nearly no industry today."
    Such bullshit.
    US is 2nd largest manufacturer in the entire world. Only reason ChiComs#1 is because of fierce mercantilist policies used for last 20+ years. Bush II & Obama sat back and allowed a rapacious mercantilists adversary to gain mkt share and to steal Western technology. In fact, every Western nation except Germany has dropped in relative ranking vis a vis ChiCons since early 2000s.
    Trump is reversing that advantage and Beijing (& Western financiers) is panicking. Just wait as more manufacturers (Chinese and Western) flee the collapsing shithole that is China.
    Vietnam, Thailand and Philippines are being filled with factories shipped in from China. Rats jumping off a sinking ship.

    I'll leave you for now to stew in your pot of misplaced anger.

    America will be the last nation standing when all is said and done.

If you are recycling steel, you don't get an equal product, and you just use another resource quicker. When Detroit isn't shut down along with China, and we can actually produce some friggin masks on our own, we'll talk about how awesome the US is. And for you to assume India/Vietnam etc. is going to pick up the pieces, you must assume we can put our economy on hold, then pick right back up where we left off. I don't buy that.

Sure, some things may seem hunky dory cool beans but the totality of things are on a >continuous downward< slide. No, not longing for olden days, just using some unbiased critical thinking. Folks that are in the affluenza caste or 9% prateorians have been intellectually numbed by the tech, media, entertainment forms, as well as benefits bribed, so much so that they are too enveloped in their smart phones or satelite radios as they gayly commute past the new more and more homeless chaps that are dwelling much closer and closer to their gated, h.o.a. hives.
