food fetish

FOOD FETISH
Before I start today, you simply MUST go read this weeks Woodpile Report.
Ol Remus must have gotten an extra helping of bran cereal this morning because he is in rare form.  I mean, he’s always funny in a sly, witty way, but today he troweled on the sarcasm and this weeks article is beyond hilarious. I’d go as far to call it Monty Python funny.  If you don’t read it and the apocalypse happens tomorrow you will be so crushed with despair that I’d wager you’d want to eat your shotgun.  And no one wants that.
*
I know I talk a lot about food security.  If I was a true blue all American survivalist writer I’d only talk about guns and anything you could buy from my advertisers.  But I care about you all for some reason, quite beyond my capacity to understand, and I’d like to see you actually survive past the current troubles.  I harp on wheat because a years worth of bare bones calories is about $102 ( plus containers of course ).  That same money would feed you the same number of calories for exactly two weeks if you ate MRE’s.  Oh, I grant you, you will much happier with your menu choice as you are eating the MRE.  For about three weeks after that last military ration was consumed you could look back fondly on your animal flesh and well fortified with fat meal.  Then you would most likely be dead ( if you weren’t so fat that three weeks was just a breathing spell for your bowels ).  And, as a bonus, in the meantime that you are accustoming yourself to a heavy wheat diet currently ( so as to not shock your system come collapse time ), you save a lot of money on your food budget.  Wheat makes too much sense to ignore.
*
But to get back to business, today I’d like to once again remind you of the very tough row you are likely to hoe as a farmer during the collapse.  I’m not claiming my choice of herder will be any easier ( I’d wager much harder due to current land controls and the current lack of practice- you can’t fence in, water, and feed store bought food and get the same practice as foraging/herding ).  I’m not claiming farming isn’t right for AFTER the collapse.  I’m merely saying that you might not be allowed to feed yourself under the current leadership.  As I said yesterday, the US government has a history of controlling whole populations through food control ( the plains Indians and the strategic decimation of the buffalo ).  They also have a great history of slaughtering innocent civilians to try to control rebelling partisans.  But I won’t get into that.  Consider the current controls on farming.  You can’t- quite simply.  Everyone is invited to garden vegetables ( in yet another wearisome side note, the current Shocking E-Mail Expose Of The Day making the rounds is all the bunny food coming out of China is grossly contaminated.  Duh.  Everything coming out of China is total crap.  The e-mail points to frozen veggies being mostly from China.  Check your labels.  If the Powers That Be want you to eat most of your calories from vegetables and grains, you can bet that this is one of the worst diets for you.  Genetically modified corn and soy and commie contaminated bunny food ).  Nobody other than a select few are allowed to grow their own food.
*
If you look around, almost without exception, food growing corresponds with wealth.  If you are part of the Yuppie Scum that can afford to consult with an expert on where to live, you can afford high dollar real estate that can grow food and keep you out of harms way from the proletariat masses.  Everyone else need not apply.  And zoning is another great way to keep everyone dependent.  The Indians were denied their food source, herded into reservations, and were starved into submission.  Today, the Yankee Scum led government operating out of DC have denied the average person the means to grow their own food, herded them into cities or suburbs, and use the threat of starvation to get them to submit to the rule of their colonial leaders.  You think you are free?  Try surviving off the money economy outside the bankers/government/corporate control.  Good luck.
*
Which is of course why there won’t be a revolution unless there is starvation first.  99.9% of the population will eagerly submit to total gun confiscation, an implanted Model 666 Microchip, their children turned into gay worshiping models of PC diversity spineless propaganda regurgitators,  calling on the free telephone line to turn in their family members to the thought police and fighting amongst themselves for the last scrap of the Constitution to wipe their asses with.  Control their food and their asses will follow.  Which is another wonderful reason to stash wheat ( preferably in different places ).  The land you plan on growing food on can be controlled, food stashes will be a lot more difficult ( although, don’t discount the use of torture to get you to reveal the location.  In the very near future, food stockpilers will be terrorists, and waterboarding is the tool of choice to our wannabe Gestapo jack booted thugs ) to confiscate.  You are not allowed to grow your own grain ( well, pay enough bribe money and you will be ) so do the next best thing and cheaply stockpile the mechanized grain the monopoly corporations offer.  You will be very glad very soon.  And remember, for protein, stockpile a fat wife.  A bed warmer in the winter, shade in the summer and stewpot meat after the apocalypse.

voting for karma

VOTING FOR KARMA
I think I have finally figured out why the myth of voting and All American Red, White And Blue Democracy refuses to die.  And by myth, I mean the dream state in which the powerless and unimportant ( that means you and me ) actually have a say in how things are run.  You don’t necessarily have to buy into your vote counting, either.  You could subscribe to the related myth that The Powers That Be Have Hijacked The System And Stolen Our Vote.  In the first fantasy, you actually think They listen to your desires ( the state of California was able to pull this off with its Initiatives vote in which specific measures could be proposed by citizens and then voted on by them.  The illusion of control was wonderful ).  In the second, you know They don’t but think if only you replace one set of criminal overlords with another, someone will soon enough take heed to your wishes.  Americans, having been the descendants of a victorious colonizers ( when we started the strategic slaughter of buffalo to deny the plains Indians food, there were literally millions of the beasts.  We stopped when there were roughly a thousand left.  The Indians then submitted and begged for food or died.  Remember that for the coming Food Wars and Planned Famine ), have been so spoiled by the scrapes of victory that they think it is natural to share in the pie.

When there is a big enough pie ( and equally important, before the currency is debased ) the proletariat masses are allowed to share the wealth.  Prior to the second World War, we had a widespread working poor.  They were allowed to starve on marginal land or risk their lives in factories for pennies.  But the big difference between us and the rest of the world was that our home grown Powers That Be were smart enough or lucky enough to figure out if they gave immigrants the real opportunity to advance and a few to match their wealth, the masses would suffer gladly for that throw of the die.  Folks moved here not for a guarantee but the option to gamble to better their lives.  After the second World War, our global leadership in oil production allowed everyone to share the wealth.  For the first time, an entire nation was allowed luxury just for being born in the right place.
*
Today, the wealth is gone and for generations now as the pie has been shrinking the masses fight each other over the remaining wealth.  And in an environment where the resources are shrinking, it would be ludicrous to believe you could vote yourself an equal slice of pie.  Wealth is shrinking, so your share not only shrinks, you must also fight others for ANY wealth at all.  You might not be getting any of that pie.  Voting no longer matters.  The powers that be, grasping at the same shrinking pie, must appropriate all the wealth to stay in position of power.  Voting is just part of the circus that keeps us entertained and occupied.  Which is why I’d wager the moniker “occupy” Wall Street was a sick joke by the financiers of that movement.  They were having fun, as the protesters were hence occupied with a false activity to keep them out of trouble.  Anyway, to my point, if you believe voting actually counts, you’ve convinced yourself that you matter, that you are valuable.  At the very least, you reason, the Democrats will solicit my vote to stay in power, hence I’ll get or keep my welfare check coming in.

But if voting doesn’t count, if you buy into this realization, then you have an unpleasant discovery.  You realize you are then surplus population, oxygen wasters.  You are expendable.  You can be killed off by design or by neglect and nothing will change.  Of course you want to believe this can’t possibly be the case!  Good luck continuing to drink this Kool-Aid.  For another example of screwing the “needy”, read below.

I am recharged man after my vacation.  Not just because I enjoy visiting, and because I got to see my son off ( I certainly did enjoy that ), but because I have a renewed faith in karma, hallelujah, and praise Baby Jesus my bestest buddy.  I had to wait eighteen years but karma has finally bite my ex wife in the ass as she so richly deserved.  Which was my fault- I always prayed that she be rewarded for her evil, but not until the kids were out of the house ( I just found out my son had been living with a friend the last eight months as the ex kept taking my money ).  And right on cue, many and varied bad fortunes fell on her!!!!  I’m so happy I could squirt milk from my nipples right now!  Two months ago, she lost her pilot job ( remember, the one I supported her through school to get so she could divorce me and live with a fellow student pilot ) due to her in-laws turning her in to social services for leaving her third child at home alone ( not mine, the first two kids were ).  Then, last month my child support payments stopped ( financial strike two ).  Sometime this month, child number three has her Social Security Disability checks discontinued ( another husband who the ex killed off by inducing the last fatal heart attack to had his SS check transferred to the child on his death as he had adopted her ).  I have few details on that so I don’t know if this is normal or it should have been six more years until the kid was 18.  But it is still financial blow #3.  Then, if that wasn’t enough financial torment to the bitch that took more of my money than Uncle Sam, even as her wages were three times mine, she just lost her job last week ( the one that had replaced the pilot gig ).  And let me tell you, jobs in that part of the country are damn hard to find.  It couldn’t have happened to a nicer woman.  Suffer, bitch!

infinity razor

INFINITY RAZOR
I’m sorry, but today I won’t be reviewing two thousand dollar night vision goggles,  $1300 battle rifles, $25 cans of freeze dried geese testicles, or much else that is fun and exciting and oh gee golly willigers.  I’m sorry that you are broke and can’t afford to equip your future Army Of Darkness with all the most expensive items.  If you think that highest tech, most expensive items, whose upkeep takes many craftsmen, is the best you can do for the apocalypse, I submit to you the knights of Europe confronting the Mongols.  But I digress.  Today’s review is on a razor.  You know, to cut that nasty crumb catcher off your face.  Now, I can just hear the many and varied legions shouting out in disapproval.  We’ll just wear cool Viking beards!  I have the cool manual powered razor the outer space dudes used!  I’m macho and shall use a straight razor!  For humps sake!  Haven’t you already done a half dozen articles on this?  Well, to answer all your complaints and questions, keep the following in mind.  You certainly can never shave again after the collapse.  All you cubical warriors might be mighty tired of scrapping the skin off your face every day, then placing a blood flow restrictive device ( a tie ) around your neck, then subjecting the skin of your nose to an unsanitary treatment as you are forced to shove said appendage up your bosses anal orifice.   Not shaving probably should pretty good about now.
*
But facial hair, except mustaches of course ( and all manly men should endeavor to grow one as it is one of the few things besides standing up peeing that guys get to do that bitches can’t.  Not that I don’t like bitches, I just don’t think we should look like them ) can get unsanitary and can also be used as a weapon in a fight as your enemy grabs hold of it.  Shaving helps you stay fresh and clean, gives you a better feeling about yourself and sets you apart from the stinking dirty savages.  As far as other kinds of razors, such as the one you yank on the cord to spin, you need to keep it as simple as possible because moving parts break.  And, if you have oily skin, it is best to stay away from electric type razors.  You need the manual blade that scrapes away the built up crap that can clog your pores and give you boils and ingrown hairs ( which, granted, will only kill you with an infection in extreme cases, but you need every advantage trying to stay healthy when no doctors are around ).  As far as straight razors, everyone should have one if you can afford it ( I was gifted a great one by a minion and still treasure it, though I can’t say I want to use it ) as the ultimate back-up, but they have a lot of issues from high cost for quality to high maintenance to the danger of use.  As far as having talked about all this before, today we present a new product, the Infinity Razor.
*
As a back-up to the back-up, I would invest in a $80 straight razor.  A one time investment, so go with German steel or similar.  Your primary back-up is a few decades worth of disposable razors ( get a blade sharpener for disposables and a pack of ten lasts a year.  Total cost for twenty years, $35 ).  Your regular razor could be the Infinity Razor, one of those “As Seen On TV” commercial products ( now through Amazon for about $8 ) that is a “carbon injected steel blades with tungsten-carbide”.  The thrift store ( the neighbor to my food bank ) had one of these, which I had never heard of.  I looked on Amazon to get the review comments, which were something like 99 to 1 unfavorable.  Now, being the frugal guy I am, I would usually heed the reviews and save my money.  I usual listen to the comments on books and I’ve rarely been steered wrong.  However, I had a sneaking suspicion these guys were cubical warriors and were used to the gentle loving caress of five bladed brand name razors, the kind that cost like $3 a friggin week.  I’m used to using crappy ten cent dollar store razors, so I suspected my experience would differ.
*
Sure enough.  The shave was actually BETTER than a disposable.  Well, perhaps.  I’ve noticed the more recent disposables are really crappy.  They almost seem to have shrank in width and I’m shaving each row twice.  Afterwards my face feels raw, both from brand new razors and those broke in plus those resharpened.  I’d say, the Infinity Razor is better or at least the same as disposables ( I’m talking about the one piece plastic twin blade units, not the replaceable cartridge ones ) used to be.  I’ve decided to keep using it.  Now, I can’t speak for longevity.  I don’t know the long term quality ( forget the money back guarantee,  you spend as much on postage if you just bought another one yourself ).  If you do go with this, I’d have at least three of them in case the plastic is cheap and breaks.  Also, this test was just for comfort, to refute the comments on Amazon.  Those folks expected it to be the same as Mach 3 or whatever.  Plus, I don’t shave everyday and I only shave with, not against, the grain.  Because of that I don’t need an expensive brand name razor.  If you do, the Infinity would be a post-apocalypse item only.  I can’t actually confirm this razor will last forever.  That what back-ups are for, to insure against typical “screw the consumer” corporate attitude ( amongst others reasons for back-ups ).  If we are all still talking in three or five years, I’ll give you an update.

drought doubts

DROUGHT DOUBTS
The drought just got worse in the last week.  You know, that event playing out across our nations breadbasket.  But, hey, why worry?  We fed ourselves through the Dust Bowl.  Of course, we only had half the people to feed back then, and our soil wasn’t as degraded.  Hey, we’ll just import grain from everywhere else.  Oh, you mean they are in drought or flood conditions also?  Bummer.  I guess the commodities traders will just magically produce a product from manipulating the market.  Folks, you can’t innovate or invent certain things.  Such as food and energy.  You got it or you don’t.  For over ten years global reserves of grains have been drawn down to meet shortfalls of new population demand coupled with stagnant production.  Food production is just like Peak Oil.  A flatline production is still the same as decline once you put more consumers in line.  At the beginning of the end of our stockpiled reserves we now start having really bad weather.  Now the bad weather is here in the former globes grain producer of last resort.  It isn’t a done deal just yet.  I imagine a divine intervention could happen ( for those severe religious types that used to point quivering accusing fingers at L.A. or NYC as a pit of inequity, a living defiling of God’s will, a modern Gomorra, you can pretty much now close your eyes, spin around, point at any area and have the same issues.  As far as deserving places of divine wraith, 99% of the country is a target ).  I wouldn’t count on it.
*
I have as much ability to forecast the exact consequences of this drought as I do the exact arrival of the second coming of Christ.  I do have the uncanny ability to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of paranoia.  Nothing could happen, but I can so easily see Very Bad Things happening.  When you lose the electric grid for a week, it really really sucks and people get stupid, but for the most part life is near normal as far as social conduct.  But if you take away food, I’d wager a donut that very bad behavior will be widespread.  The people in this country don’t know what its like to not eat to excess.  Several times a day.  Panic over the reality could be the thing making the consequences so much worse.  The food would vanish from the shelves immediately, and that night most restaurants would be broken into and pilfered.  Too many crack head minor league thieves are already qualified to do the job.  As soon as one sniffs the opportunity, the pack goes into motion and they suddenly have a ready made barter item.  Number ten cans for crack.  Yeh, baby! 
*
It is true that I panic and cry wolf over every possible civilization crushing event.  But I never offer advice that harms you if I’m wrong.  You can’t go wrong with too much food.  Eventually you eat it all.  And inflation is only going to continue.  Overbuy now, for humps sake.  I don’t know how much longer you get warned with prices near normal. 
*
Tomorrow I’m leaving first thing in the morning for Carson City to visit my dad.  My son is flying out to visit them, so I get two visits for the price of one.  It will be the last time I see him for four years if he gets deployed overseas ( I ignore the possibility of this being the last visit ever ).  I’ve already written tomorrow’s article last weekend and pre-posted it for Friday noon.  It is even full length.   And last weekend was no picnic, darn it.  It was 95 degrees and I started building the pit.  I worked 16 hours those two days and have the framing complete on the cabin and the roof started.  I have to dig a bit more to put the second wall in front, but the cabin was the hard part.  The roof will be relatively easy.  I took a few pictures, although don’t expect much.  It will be only three or four showing the whole process.  I don’t want anyone exactly following my technique ( my buddy down the street took one look and said, “there ain’t a single plumb line on it!”.  I just followed the Soviet example of over-building to compensate for lack of workmanship ).  I’ll post the pictures in two or three weeks ( hopefully ) when the whole thing is done.
*
A VERY short one today.  I’m feeling hot, tired, discouraged and in a poor mood.   I don’t know why. I got the book “X-Events” today, as well as a wonderful care package in the mail from Sam ( thanks, brother! ), so my spirits should be in the up bracket.  Maybe I’m just run down.  Hopefully a three day weekend will cure it ( or, my luck, the collapse occurs when I’m stuck down in Crapville ).  Talk to you all Monday ( but remember to tune in tomorrow for the pre-posted article ).

rewnewed fear?

RENEWED FEAR?
There have been a butt load ( a unit of measurement between crap pot and God Awful ) of comments on the Midnight Movie Massacre ( as much as I hate, despise, fear and loathe the media, wicked props for title, yo! ) and my masterful, insightful and wise words on it, I must in my usual fashion continue to beat on a dead horse and yammer on it still further.  Today, are fears of renewed efforts at gun control justified?  I could have talked on and on about the conspiratorial aspects here.  I mean, come on!  There is just too much coincidence between every modern massacre and the gun control agenda.  JFK and mail order guns, Stockton school yard and then-bellwether state California ( I’m not sure if they still hold that distinction.  It seems to me they are less influential as far as the rest of the nation following their lead than they used to be.  Or, it could just be I’ve withdrawn a bit from political affairs, feeling as secure as it is possible to be now that I’ve found my little secure “middle of nowhere”  and able to ignore to some degree outside asshattery ) putting the assault weapon ban in place, etc. 
*
I love a good conspiracy yarn just as much as the next paranoid schizophrenic, but I try to always take them with a grain salt.  I always try to apply the acid test of plausibility.  As much as I try to wrap my brain around the particulars of it, I can’t see how there could be any outside force that could convince young white males ( who, no matter where on the socioeconomic ladder, usually could count on some kind of advancement possibility since the system had been, in the past, rigged for them ) to effectively “suicide by cop”.  I don’t buy the fame argument.  Who wants to trade mediocrity for forced anal violation?  If you didn’t put up a fight, suiciding by cop, you were bound for prison and a virtual AIDS death sentence.  I can see the patsy plausibility.  Oswald was most likely never the triggerman.  McVeigh?  Patsy.  He might have blown the Ryder van, but the FedGov operatives planted the internal structural explosives.  The van, with ANFRO, was at most a paint peeler, not a force to crush a kindergarten.  Okay, not technically a gun massacre, but the patsy charge applies.  My question is, why?  If you really want to end it all and do so in style, you would go guns blazing, not meekly give yourself up.

Okay, since mind control is a bit much to believe, I’m just giving up right now on the how’s.  Let’s  ask ourselves, why?  You can’t just claim that politicians want gun control.  The smoking gun right there is the sunset clause on the assault weapons ban.  If gun control was so all fired ( was that a pun? ) important, they never would have stepped back from such a hard won victory.  Even if Bush was pro-gun ( who was it that confiscated guns during Katrina? ), why didn’t Obammy reintroduce gun control?  You can’t say he isn’t one humping commie puke.  He is more leftist than Lenin.  And, I respectively submit to you that voting doesn’t count for diddly squat crap all.  I truly believe the vote is rigged ( on the journey there, along with dead people voting, votes bought, counting machines at the bottom of the lake, there was always the good old Supreme Court ready to invalidate the voters will ).  Computers make it all so simple- no more hanging chads.   Since the vote no longer matters, what fear do the elites have of our disapproval to gun control?  Fear of rebellion?  We never rebelled against ALL the gun control laws out there.  There would have been very little fuss if a total ban, even ignoring grandfather clauses, had been phased in.  The California assault rifle owners pretty much ignored the law as much as possible.  I can’t see a national turn in request being much complied with.  So it certainly wouldn’t have meant all out civil war.

Why was gun control oh so very important and now suddenly for the last ten years no big deal?  I still think food control is the new weapon, so gun control is no longer needed.  But, here’s another thought, just for craps and grins.  What if now the elites WANT us to keep our guns?  Think about it.  Collapse is baked in the cake ( environmental, economic, little green men invasion, whatever ).  Your military is shrinking and deployed to the oil fields.  Your police forces are shrinking as you’ve thrown the counties and cities under the bus.  You don’t have an effective home security force.  What to do?  Let the armed factions fight amongst themselves, really whittle down the population, then the victors get your food you control ( from the oil you control, the seeds you control, etc. ) and you’ve just bought, for Third World prices, a prime, tested, mercenary force.  Tell me its not very plausible. 
*
I wouldn’t worry so much about sudden gun control.  Oh, it could always happen.  Because of that, I’d say stockpile ammo and bury some guns.  But if after twenty years you still haven’t been worried enough about the possibility to actually do something about it ( after Clinton’s gun grab you could have bought $40 war surplus guns and ten cent surplus ammo ) you might as well just give it up.  Learn to make crossbows.  It is always a concern.  But I’d still say, wheat, wheat and more wheat.  Most likely you have enough guns and ammo anyway.  You all won’t concern yourselves with the corn failures, yet panic over Obammy and gun control.  Prioritize the most possible.

evil deniers

EVIL DENIERS
I’m a friggin stud muffin, more righteous and wunderbar than most pathetic posser environmentalists.  I don’t own a car and bike everywhere, my house is recycled metal, all my power is from the sun and I even reuse cat litter ( we mourned the last cats for an indecently long year and now have a new cat lined up to move in next week.  The cat litter is scooped for solids several times a day and then placed around the trailer to mitigate the occasional mud ).  So, since I walk the walk and most jerk off tree huggers that own coal powered Prius’ that must constantly replace a huge battery pack that is SOOOO not Earth friendly are simple fools unable to do more than flap their lips over the injustices done to Gaia rather than actually do anything about it other than never buy any razor blades or deodorant, I feel justified in the following article.  Environmentalists are by and large dumb asses of the first degree.  They don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground.  They are dumber than a box of rocks.  I’d go on but feel I should spare some of their feelings.  I wouldn’t want to be a subject of their awesome crystal power necklace attacks.

The standard complaint from these hair lips is that the evil human warming deniers are causing the whole planet to overheat and we will all be doomed.  Now, I love doom and gloom in all forms, so I tend to cut these fools a little slack.  First, I’m not entirely convinced they are totally wrong.  Second, they could be right but just for the wrong reasons.  I mean, if the solar activity is decreasing yet the temperature is rising, even if humans don’t have anything to do with it we are still screwed.  Now, I’m not taking their side, nor am I insisting all is well.  We could be headed to an Ice Age for all I know.  Humans could be 100% responsible, or not at all.  I don’t really care one way or another, so I’m not trying to debate it.  My major complaint is that the logic they are using is flawed.  That is mostly all I care about.  I KNOW we are all screwed, but since I don’t know what will eventually kill us all I don’t waste a huge amount of time on it.  Solar flares, or human caused warming?  Who cares?  You store food for dozens of reasons.  Crop failures, transportation failures, grid down, banking crisis, ice age, alien invasion, martial law, Ukraine Soviet style famine intentionally started, wheat rust, nuclear war, and etcetera.

Okay, here is my main issue.  It is stated, even by writers I admire and trust, that for a variety of reasons the truth is being suppressed or hidden or distorted.  The truth of human caused global warming.  The evil oil companies, or whatever.  If they would just allow the truth to be widely known, we would all modify our behavior, global warming would stop, we would all be saved and live happily ever after.  What a bubbling crock of crap!  How many of the most ardent environmentalists give up their car?  Almost none ( those living in New York City don’t count ).  The most educated amongst them, the most militant, won’t stop using fossil fuels.  Not Al “I invented the Internet” Gore and not your little FemiNazi rainbow knitted cap wearing eco-warrior.  Close your humping mouth and show me how dedicated you are.  And they expect the rest of us to give up our cars?  But this isn’t even the main problem.  Even if every swinging dingus in this country gave up their cars and planted organic zucchini in woven reed baskets on their porch, the rest of the world would not follow.  For the very simple reason that we are already in a war for resources and the way to win is to play the “burn resources, baby, burn” game.  Look, if you are a country and you only offer fully backed gold currency, in short order your economy would be swamped by all those issuing Monopoly money.  Printing money at will gives an initial edge economically, which is why everyone does it.  It is why there is a race to print to ruin.  The same goes with mining resources.  If you live sustainably, the other countries that mine resources above replenishment rate clearly hold a huge edge, militarily and otherwise.  It is a race to see who runs out last.

You think China isn’t aware how unsustainable their model is?  Of course they do.  But they are betting they are the last man standing in the resource wars.  Their cities will be poison, their soil toxic, their coal depleted, but they will control other areas they can colonize.  They are winning economically by being the last to run out.  Our race in this country was run for the benefit of the rich elite.  At least in Communist China the pool of winners was enlarged somewhat.  The peasants will be rewarded by being allowed to survive in squalor ( the rest of the world not enslaved will be dead, so it will be a sweet deal indeed ).  My point is that the Chinese will not stop burning fossil fuels.  Period.  We might, they certainly won’t.  Their economy is outside the control of our banks, so they can’t be Greeced or Spained by our central bank.  If everyone turned Earth hugger tomorrow, the rest of the world would just win the resource war quicker.  So it matters naught if the evil deniers suppress the truth, or how many folks but fluorescents.  In fact, the Chinese love our drive to buy those light fixtures.  More money for them, and they import some mercury to us.  Like I said, environmentalists are retards.

NEW Bison Blog CD For Sale
I've got an actual professional to archieve and format all the old blog on a CD-ROM.  I haven't got a copy of it yet, but I'm thinking this thing will be better than sliced white bread.   It does cost $10 plus shipping, figure another $4 or so, which might be a bit on the higher side.  But I think I'm worth it.  Depending on how much the production company charges per copy, my cut will be about $5 to $6.  That isn't too much to ask for over five years of work and nearly two million words of pure brilliance.  Here is the link to order:
