The question is why is there a clear, predictable pattern?

Gotta have some post to test😉

Mahatma Gandhi was a deeply spiritual man and his spirituality was his source of strength and enabled him to lead the masses of India, irrespective of their individual differences.

Gandhi harnessed the inherent spirituality, dating back at least five thousand years, of the people.

The USA originated with violence, first the genocide of the native American Indians, then conquering the battles and wars with other Europeans and native Mexicans.

Hollywood has done a great job, in their huge number of productions of the western movies, of capturing the spirit of no value for human life; shoot first, no time for questions!

Look at the time after world war II. USA was in a unique position of strength. What did the US do with it, other than spreading their influence worldwide?

The period starting with George W Bush, was the beginning of the widespread worldwide destruction, based on a false pretenses.

The violence, destruction and tyranny has finally come home, as internal consequences of the actions of a nation, like chicken coming home to roost!

The majority of people are peace loving citizens who do not support the actions of the government and the government no longer represents them, probably never did.

MLK was just using whatever power he could lead with, potential violence, true to this day!

So, given the violent history of a violent nation, with no value for human life, what is the solution that the people are inclined to choose?

Right now, the people are just too comfortable, having lost their marbles and their balls, having been living a degenerate life of materialistic affluence.

Adversity will wake us up!

It could be that on average one group is a bit more impulsive and, as already mentioned, the other has lost its balls for some reason.

There are books on this. A good one is Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who dies, and why / Laurence Gonzales.

The "native American Indians" displaced the people that were there before them.

Your ancestry was built on conquering, subjugating, and displacing others. You, like everybody else, didn't arrive at this point any other way.

On the topic of soy, I suppose that most of you have seen that the vaccines are the new soy? Per the Israeli study that just came out:

Covid-19 vaccination BNT162b2
temporarily impairs semen
concentration and total motile count
among semen donors (Wiley
Online
Library)(Itai Gat X, Alon Kedem, Michal Dviri, Ana Umanski,
Matan Levi, Ariel Hourvitz, Micha Baum
First published: 17 lune 2022
https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1....
CAPSULE: A retrospective longitudinal multicenter
comparison reveals temporary sperm concentration
reduction 3 months post BNT162b2 vaccination and
later recovery. Semen volume and motility remain
stable.)

This was posted about on Berenson's substack and also on el gato malo's substack. I am also reading that the study authors are weasels re the difference between the median and the average duration of damage, so although they say that this is "temporary" and men recover, it may not be the case for some men; there could be recovery in some men but permanent damage in others ("Seems like the authors took advantage of the Median vs Average differences to suggest that everything was fine 150 days after vaccination.")(Ran Israeli on twitter).

KDPeople got VERY rich doing that during the Depression, but you had to have CASH. There were quite a few of them too. It took 10+ years to get rich this way, but it's time-honored.[/q wrote..


This might be the worst time in history to not have cash, inflation or not. I can't seem to convince my family of that, though it is sinking into the head of one sister. We are buying a house for a little over $400K. Cash. The only reason I'm going along is I'm outnumbered and my sister nailed down the price, as everything is being put up for auction and sanity isn't prevailing. I recommended borrowing money, as we can pay it back if necessary, to keep cash. There is this delusion they are going to give you cash. There isn't any ****ing capital behind any of this, which threatens the cash itself, in banks.

I saw a liquidation, here in the late 1980's and early 90's. The bulk of commercial property and at least 100,000 SFR properties went through foreclosure. Land prices go straight to hell, but the land doesn't go away. You don't understand how rough times like that are until you look back. When the construction vehicles get off the roads, traffic problems diminish. Functioning apartment buildings are razed.

I mentioned having currency in store, in a previous post. 2008 should have taught a lesson on credit card terms and limits, as they cut limits and raised interest rates. What happens when the limits are moved down to the balance? I would suspect the price of street sex goes down. A high currency balance for the typical woman is $100, likely the same as a snowflake.

Someone has the bank balances, just that most people don't. I have seen people take their $20K cars and hock them for at $2500 loan for 30 days at a rate of 25%, per month. Holding cash and paying a 20% APR on a card might not look smart, but compared to hocking your wheels at 25% a month, that is a bargain. There is always tomorrow and worst case, bankruptcy. Cash means you don't have to hock anything. I have done the pawn shop route, and when you are broke, you stay that way. Kiss your **** good bye.

If your ATM's don't work, you bank is broke and the debits don't work, currency becomes all the money in the world. Get that in your mind, because when they pick it up, we are all slaves, just like Egypt, in the book of Genesis.

A lot of people have bought metals, coins and other hedges. They are backup to cash. I have plenty, but I bought them before and had to sell. They are for emergency, when all else fails. I know what the rebuttal will be, but if there is no means of exchange, the best thing to own is a cave, because that is where the survivors will be. If you have nothing to exchange, I recommend carrying a tube of lube with you.

If we have a depression, gauging the bottom won't be easy, because cash will shrink from existance. Getting in right might be a long way from the bottom. Just find a 1928-1933 chart of the DJIA. If you run out of cash while buying in lower, you will have to sell. Yields on stocks, that are around 2%, might not quit going up until double digits. That is an 80% decline, for those weak in math, as shrinking values require more selling to raise cash.

There is a lot of talk about hyperinflation. I don't think it can happen outside of the failure of the US itself or a communist takeover of the country. They had to **** up everything to create this mess, putting checks out in return for nothing. This is the same model that created the 1965 to 1980 inflation, borrowing money to put out goodies to nonproducers and poor regulatory and tax policy. Tax the rich is nonsense, because taxes are a cost of doing business and they are passed on in prices or the gods disappear. Regulations are taxes. But, when you pay out money and nothing is produced, as we have seen the past 2 years and the money is in essense printed, shortages appear and the bidding for resources occur.

Atrificial interest rates have the effect of mispricing everything. The nature of the current system is the excess cash flowed back to the people who already own everything, like my family. Our function should be to create more resources. At best, most of us merely produce more spending money for the masses and some to flow into new investment. Trust me, the residential rental market barely works at all with today's inflated asset prices. Make it produce a 3% higher return and renters can't pay. The only adjustment is what one must do with all financial assets, lower the valuations. Rents are limited to what people can pay and even if their income adjuats to inflation, getting another 2% immediately out of a $400K asset requires another $667 a month. Double that, if you need 4% extra. Up 50%.

The current financial model depends on growth. 4% current on real estate, hopefully 5% growth, gives a 9% illusion. Problem is rents can stagnate for years or even go down. The same is true of stocks. Bonds, you agree to a return, for the term of the bond. Who bought them at under 2%? Every percent up is a 9% loss. Trillions in value, up in smoke. Bonds set the yields on stocks. We have a long way to go and the amount of leveraged credit in financials is huge. The fed is aware of the bomb they have created and are afraid to light the fuse. The market has yet to price in a recession, as this is merely a move in rates, from ridiculous. Inflation won't ease until they address the supply side and the Fed can't fix that part. If they have to fight inflation alone, rates will implode the system. We have a mess that can't pay 5%. Another trillion on the Fed budget alone. Where are they going to get that? Out of supply? Not these chicken****s.

As painful as it appears, cash is necessary. It gets harder and harder to raise. Remember, you have to sell at a ****ty price to get money to buy at a good price. Many assets will be down 50% or more.

That was before today's dehydrated foods but to have really enough food for one person let alone 4 or 5 takes a comittment of $$$ and space. I have a closet with what I believe will be 3,000 calories for two people for two months. And no, it's not beans and rice. It takes a lot of space.

Have a former boss who has over 1 million rounds of ammunition of various calibers. It fills a bedroom of his house! Dosen't have a fire extinguishers in the house. He is betting he can defend his bricks and sticks McMansion by himself.


I have recently thought about the closet myself. I have been building a hoard since Karl brought it up at the start of the coof. My shelves are filled. I spotted space in my closet. I need a generator and probably 30 gallons of gas to protect my freezers. Gets beyond that, we are likely screwed.

I have already figured out, 3 clips full is likely my survival limit, in a shootout. I have plenty more, but Rambo lives only in the movies. Fend them off, they might come back, especially, if they are the law. Then you either give up or decide to die trying. You have extra ammo to be sure you have something to shoot and something left over after you shoot. It is another matter, if you plan on surviving in the woods. Even then, you have to have storage and a way to get it there. A million rounds is 1000 a day for nearly 3 years or 100 a day for over 28 years.

If I was going to defend my bricks and sticks, I would likely have a drum on a 12 gauge, if there is one, and a rifle for distance. Maybe a 6.5 creedmore on the open plains. Shoot one, might as well get as many as you can so they don't come back. You might need a few thousand rounds to get your half mile aim down.

I was on the edge of the big side of Texas on Saturday, Abilene. If not for business and events this week, I might have kept on to the Big Bend area. If you are out there, I might have to drop in sometimes.

If you get through 3 full mags in a shootout you're doing VERY well.

I figured that one out Karl awhile back. If I get the first shot, I might get 2. 3, I'm likely screwed. If it is the government, the drone gets you. Only, if someone is well dug in and hidden as a sniper, would there be any expectation of firing over 30 well placed shots and that would be a long shot. The guy with million rounds is going to leave plenty behind.

One reason I have thought about and have a shotgun and 00 buck. I watched a video exploring 00 and slugs. Out to 100 yards, 00 is pretty deadly, but it does spread out. One hits you in the face or head, you are pretty ruined and you might get 2 with one shot. I have done that hunting doves. Hopefully that day never comes. Dying is something that is going to occur, but something I would like to delay. I'm not much geared for running.
