Post Pep talk reaction

Went over several of my regular reads after reading tha ATH post yesterday

Most of my readers should be familiar with Malthusian thinking, Malthus in particular, and that nut from the 70s that keeps making starvation predictions and walking the goal line forward even though its obvious the theory is skewed.

I am seeing a lot of that Malthusian chicken little shitte again. The pep talk helped me clear some of the fuzz from my eyeballs. First off, the FedGov has isolated itself behind steel barricade topped with razor wire and 20k+ troops of questionable loyalty. (And the PTwB know it hence the attempts to purge all non diverse types from all the branches and why that weasel lipped quisling was assigned to SOF as its key diversity officer. )

Think about that. They barricaded themselves in, an incredibly small territory with the illusion of massive power. Yes, Illusion. Its an illusion because we give it power, but the more people that wake up, realize that they have far more control over their daily lives than some diktat 1000-3000 miles away,,,, Its as simple as this. If a sqaud of Cops is facing 10000 pissed off people armed to the teeth with everything from big rocks to evil black rifles of various calibers from pencil to thumb; do you seriously think they (that squad of cops) are going to try and stand ground? I dont care how ggod the bennies are or the promise of backup, they are gonna do the math in their heads and step aside with a smile.

A few more months on current course and speed and I can see groups like that forming up. When you can’t afford to eat because the value of the dollar is less than the paper you wipe your ass with, when your kids are crying at night because they hurt from lack of proper nutrition because the stores arent getting decent produce from the farms shut down by high fuel prices and you can’t afford $20/lb of potatoes,,,

It isn’t likely to get that bad. I think the majority are already aware the path we are headed and the waking up is accelerating but I can say it will get worse yet. The wake up and decline operate in tandem. Rather like the tides follow moon and sun. Tide lags behind the movements but are influenced by them nonetheless.

When the tide of woken hits peak, that cesspool on the Potomac is target zero, and you can bet a penny whistle that the puppetmasters won’t be in attendance, leaving the puppets to take the wrath. Nope, the puppetmasters are already offsite and just watching the coffers fill from the final trickles of a dying economy.

I don’t go for the conspiracy theories of Illuminati or its like, but I do think there are small groups of puppetmasters, always tweaking the chessboard of the world. People (loose term in use. They certainly don’t act human) like Soros. The more common names like Peelousey, Screwmore, geekyGates, Fokocini, they are the puppets (Gates maybe more the tweaker now that he has achieved that ‘nobel status’ of uber rich and egalitarian philanthropist *choke* (always question motives, always.))

But I feel good about the world in general. Most people, no matter if they are right, centrist, left, socialist, anarchist, whatever; most just want to be left be so they can get on with that chore of living. It may not be the greatest life, but by God, they intend on living it.

And yeah, there are those that thinknthey need to make the rest of us live their way, and that’s why we are where we are. But at the end of the day, its just you, dis-robing to lay your tired head to rest, and wondering how to make the next better.

So, will tomorrow be better than today? Only YOU get to make that call. You can do what ya gotta, or you can listen to the illusions and let them lead you. Your call. I’m choosing to listen to Nudge (my imaginary friend who still resides in my back brain. Long story,,,,) and when the illusion gains strength because more people feed it, and it starts to interfere with MY reality,,, I’ll piss on it, just like Voo and JD piss on every stick shrub and tree.

But today, I need to spread the Kayaking bug to a young lady who seriously wants a longboat. And then,,, likely,,, prolly something else to do with kayaks, and another already infected kayak junkie who I was conversing with late last eve.

I don’t live to kayak, I kayak to LIVE, and its a whole lot more fulfilling than the 9-5 doldrums of existence.

    So, I gave him a pep talk, and he took it further.
    And he’s right.
    I’m not even sure war will break out. To an extent that’s the hope talking. It might be complete civil disobedience and then they run away — the ones with power — and EVERYTHING comes out.
    I do have a good feeling for “everyhting comes out and they lose all power and credibility.”
    BUT it might happen the way he says. There’s a great anger already stalking the land. And it ain’t getting better.
    This is not end game. This is not the end of the beginning, even.
    Be not afraid.
    Push on.

      • I see I need to read here regularly. Thus is the main page bookmarked now into “Open all these as my ‘morning paper’ bit.” Maybe I might one day even have something to say. Besides moo, that is.

  2. You have the gift. Sarah Hoyt. I’m going to be presumptuous and make the guess that Nudge kept you safe as a kid.
    A blessed Easter to you, Ma’am.

    • Your comment is on my site; I’m Diogenes, but I’m sure Sarah is checking back on occasion now. She’ll see it.😁 And Nudge is my best friend/arch enemy/trouble making character building imaginary friend, and possibly a guiding angel in disguise. She’s led me into some hairy situations but always seems to ‘nudge’ me the right when it counts most.

    “I don’t live to kayak, I kayak to LIVE, and its a whole lot more fulfilling than the 9-5 doldrums of existence.”

    Once upon a time I was a student at a university famous for its rowing and I ended up in a lowish ranked rowing eight all the time I was there. At one point I was asked if I’d like to move up to a more talented crew and I replied something similar to that – to with that I rowed to keep fit, whereas if I moved up I’d have to stay fit to row. I’d seen how the better rowers ended up basically doing nothing else that wasn’t rowing related and I was quite sure that rowing was not going to become my life,

    • Kayaking, for me, has turned into quite a bit more than just ‘paddling a boat’. I design and build kayaks (skin on frame, expanding into strip built fiberglass boats) make paddles, teach skills, etc etc. And I get to go kayaking for just kayaking, jes’cuz.
      There are other aspects to my life besides kayaking, but the boats fulfill me in ways the rest can’t.
      I understand both your point, and the point of the rowers, each has a niche, rowing was NOT yours.
