This is a subject that keeps getting brought up, time and time again, between ‘self and others.
We watch the blurbs, the burbs and the peeps around us, and yet we see that there are so many that are either disconnected from the realities coming at us, or willingly oblivious to same. When I say ‘willingly oblivious’ I am talking about those with their heads in the sand. The others mentioned are just completely disconnected from information so don’t take any note of the changes coming on. They are dangerous in their own right as they are the ones that will be looking for someone else to blame when the ATM’s, EBT’s, and the Microwave cease to function. The ones with their heads in the sand will likely just keel over and die when the reality of ignoring reality hits them smack in the eyes. (typically at three AM and in copperjacketed attire.) Not all mind you, but enough that those trying to keep order are gonna have a full-time job digging holes.
I want to point out one aspect of our world that has so many burying their heads. Our economy. This is going to be the fulcrum that tips the tide for all of the wonderful joyous things our PTwB have in store for us. Make no doubt about it. They will get theirs! And OURS is to be THEIRS! No if’s and’s, or But’s about it. Our guns, they will want those. Our incomes, hell, they are trying any and all methods to acquire those now. (figure out how many versions of tax you pay in a single DAY! yeah, they are getting theirs.) and as for property, you can just forget it, they already own that, they are just allowing you to exist there for now, as they have no use for it, Yet.
Just ask Cliven Bundy, or that Rancher in OK near the TX border. Ask any of the multitude that have been driven out of business by regulation about losing to the Feds. It isn’t about US or U.S., its about power, and they aim to keep it for as long as they can. They will never willing separate themselves from power that they have gained and they will never ever be satisfied with what they have.
The Economy is tanked, despite the propping up that has been done. The
hyper-inflation that QE to Infinity has created is just now starting to creep into our daily lives. I see it in the touchstone of fuel. I have watched fuel prices steadily, though glacially, increase for the last 4 weeks. (and yet, I see diesel staying steady? Something is being manipulated here, or was being manipulated and is now correcting itself.) There is no end in sight. It will continue to increase numerically, while the actual quantities will shrivel or degrade. (I actually bought a couple of gallons of gasoline that smelled varnished already. Wonder how long that had been in storage.) You can see what I am talking about just buying a ‘pound’ of bacon, (12 oz, not 16) or the fact that finding ‘AA’ large eggs is much harder, but you can buy ‘A’ large for the same price. Yet I rarely hear anyone say boo about it. Certainly not in the media, though occasionally a blogger or semi-pro freelance journalist will. And finding ammo? Sheesh, just .22LR is damned near impossible to find, and the prices on that are so far through the roof that even plinking is out of the question now-days. We are gonna need every round just to eat around here. (wild meat supplements? LOL. Ya gotta laugh or you will start to cry.)
Ladies and Gentleman, we ARE well into the beginnings of OUR Great Depression. Make no mistake about it. This thing is going world-wide and is going to leave a lasting mark on mankind. How it all comes out in the end is anyone’s guess, but I have fear that learning Mandarin will become mandatory by the time my granbehbie is old enough to work for a living.
Truth. There is so little of it in the world today. I get to the point most days where I just don’t even want to talk to people I work with because they are so disillusional about the world around them. That Damned Noisy Box has them so Brainwashed that life is better in ‘living color’ than the reality just outside the door. to quote a song by Jewel “People living their lives for you on TV, they say they’re better than you and you agree.”
Well, isn’t that the frame of mind of most that find “dancing with the bachelorette of america’s got talent while dual survival on the Nazi channel” Fascinating? (I turned of that boobtude in 2008 when I split with the Ex and my mind has firmed up and taken on far more information and learned to flex again. It’s no longer that gooie couch potato thingy that I felt it had become.)And yet that is exactly what I see when I walk into the break room everyday. People not talking about how to improve things, or even just discussing the next planting cycle or any of that. Nope, its what dimwitted fucktard passed onto the next round of something or nudder.
I just want to put a brick into the persons head to replace whatever greymatter they have with a reasonable approximation of what is really there.
I know that some of my readers are going to read the first part of this and turn off. That’s ok. I am just venting right now anyway. Not much to say and what I have to say, is being highly edited for this slightly family friendly site.
Believe me, some of the phone conversations tend to be a bit more ‘colorful’.
Yeah, I am angry. I served my country, and the illusions I served under have been stripped from my eyes. I am angry at those ‘duly elected’ that have raped and pillaged this country into the current mess it is in. I am angry at the institutions that have helped create the current “American” mindset of sloth,vanity and decay. And I am angry at the lack of concern in those around me. I am one person, I can’t fix this, not alone, and yet there are so many that seem to think the ‘new normal’ is ok.
I am just blabbering now. Time to go back on my hillside and work on digging in a bit more. Maybe someday I will be at a point where I can turn my back on this mess.
(I know, self-delusion. I am too much the human to just walk away from humanity.)
