sell signal


SELL SIGNAL

Remember that great comedy “Trading Places” with Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd ( pardon the spelling )?  Remember the depiction of the old school futures trading pit in Chicago ( you know, before Goldman Saks computerized the thing and took over running the universe electronically ) where all the guys were frantically waving their arms screaming like little schoolgirls, “sell!  Sell!” or “buy!’.  Well, today I’d like you to envision me all sweaty and excited and waving my arms and yelling “sell!”.  I’ve said it before and I might never get a chance to tell you again, sell your friggin evil black assault carbines, replace with a real gun and use the left-overs to buy the crap out of food supplies.  Wouldn’t you know it, that silly twat down in Arizona, the one the moron shot but didn’t finish off, was “testifying” about the evils of guns while at the same time some jag-off in Alabama is taking a school bus full of kids hostage.  He killed the driver and from the little I heard most of the kids got away ( I imagine it was buttholes and elbows as the rugrats were clamoring over the windows to de-ass the vehicle ).  Now isn’t that just the oddest of coincidences?  Yet another false flag event at the most opportune time.  No, I don’t believe, quite, that the CIA shoots thought control beams into the brains of psychopaths.  But something that doesn’t smell right has to be going on with all these perfectly timed shootings.

Right now, every Johnny Come Lately is getting a sharp pain in their bowels as they contemplate a future without their beloved  high capacity assault plastic poodle shooter.  They are having waking nightmares of being forced to battle “Chinese Invaders” with, gasp, horror!, bolt action rifles ( stop embarrassing yourself, Carl, you don’t have to go one on one with the TSA goons as they pull you over in random searches.  First, because you already fled the city.  And secondly, be smart and bushwhack, avoiding direct confrontation ).  Take advantage of their fear and sell to them dear.  I know you don’t like to keep hearing it from me, but your biggest future problem is food supplies, not ammo supplies ( is it me, did I read the ad wrong, or is Russian steel 54R going for the same price as 308 reloadable? ).  Stockpile the crap out of wheat before that shortage makes itself obvious.  And stop your caterwauling.  I’m not saying living just on wheat is a good idea.  I’m saying that an oversupply of wheat, several years per person ( a three year supply for a family of four is about what your yearly cable bill is, so shut the hump up about affordability ), gives you the edge over any kind of food issue.  Famine, transportation disruption, government crop rationing, disease, overpopulation, none of that will wait around for you to be ready.  If worse comes to worse, yes, you can survive off wheat.  But it is meant to be a base supply of daily calories.  Hopefully supplemented by trapping or gardening but sufficient, if only barely, on its own.  Compare a days 1500 calories in a pound of wheat to a can of chili.  Or, rather, a third of a can of chili, 70 calories.  Which would you rather have, as they cost the same?

I was watching “NCIS” last night, as per my usual Tuesday TV schedule.  Yes, I know TV is the devils glass tit.  But I use my brain more in one day than most folks do all year, so by the end of the day I can afford to switch off that splendid organ and turn on the steady morphine drip of mindless entertainment.  I’ve voiced my reservations about the show before.  I enjoy it, but I recognize the pure propaganda aspect.  They push “FedGov Love Lite”.  All the New York City police shows have no appetite for coddling civilians.  They pretty much show all the poor cops surrounded by asshats, fearing for their lives, and when they “bend the rules”, it is justified not only because of that but for the noble purpose of justice or public order.  I might be a little paranoid here, but I imagine Goebbels didn’t do half as good of a job of convincing his cannon fodder how insignificant they were.  And look at the results.  New Yorkers put up with Soviet style gun control, cops can shove their batons up the ass of tourists until they are hospitalized, when cops open fire on “terror suspects” hitting nothing but innocent bystanders there is zero outrage, and even Mayor Blooming Idiot can check citizens fecal waste for acceptable levels of dietary fiber ( okay, I made the last one up ). 

*

So, here we go with “NCIS”, and the character Abby is feeling all glum and sorrowful over a tragic childhood incident when she can’t fix some strange families personal problems ( translation: the government agent can help you! ).  Oh, me oh my, I just want to help people! ( translation- you are worthless and weak and the FedGov goons are here with a helping hand ).  My friggin good God, she thinks that being part of a team that ignores the Constitution in pursuit of solving crimes is helping.  Yes, it is a fictional show.  Just like that unbelievably stupid one with the gay dads ( not “Modern Family”, they do okay overpowering their “butt packers are good parents” with humor and lightheartedness ), the message that is relentlessly pushed doesn’t have to reflect reality to do a good job selling an alternate socialist PC future.  The Gods weep.

A minion relayed an equally depressing commercial.  Some putz lands at the airport during winter.  As soon as he is graciously allowed to use his cell phone ( read this weeks Woodpile Report for a brilliant rant on modern transportation ) he uses some app to remote start his car that is parked in the long term lot.  After his darling family trudges over they are rewarded with a toasty warm SUV.  A happy ending to one of lives most vexing White People Problems, un-California weather.  To be expected to brave the elements like a savage barbarian!  Good thing our frack oil supply will last a thousand years!

    1. Sorry, my bad. I went back to look ( Sportsman's ) and it was surplus brass Berden. Not steel. The other day I saw 8 pound potato sacks and thought they were trying to downsize the traditional 10 pound ( evidently 8 is rare but has always been an option ). I have a hair trigger reaction when I think prices shoot up or shortages develop. But I'm NOT paranoid because they ARE out to get me.

  3. Jim, These days when I do bother to watch NCIS it is to make a game of counting how many times they break the law. I don't seem to be able to finish an episode because I get too pissed. The car commercial (I was not paying attention in the begining so I may have details wrong-I used to have a car with a remote start and that is why it caught my attention) I believe was for Buick and what bothered me was he used his phone to start the car AS THE PLANE WAS COMING IN FOR A LANDING. I'm sure they would tell you that this was 'artistic license' so they could show him seeing his car start but these days if you don't sit still and do what they tell you it's off to Gitmo for you my friend.
