solo surviving


SOLO SURVIVING
There’s a new k-book review today.

*

Okay, there you are living in the city because that is where you have a job.  You finally got around to buying a piece of junk land after listening to me harp on it for ten years and frankly, you feel like a turd for not having done it sooner and you want to reach the next tier of Loyal Minion status, up from the low of “unworthy”.  You aren’t going to go live on it because frankly, you understand that while I am 100% convinced the end is nigh, you have some doubts.  You know you can keep your job in the city, but if you give it up you will probably remain unemployed close to forever.  So, the lesser of evils is to plan on bugging out come the time.  You understand that gasoline inventories will be wiped out in hours, the highways will be parking lots within minutes ( the system being designed for far less population way back in the day ) and even if a miracle happens and you could get there with enough fuel, the TSA and their jack booted thugs will not allow you to pass unmolested.  You’ve got two weeks of freeze dried foods or MRE’s or pemmican ( I’d go with that one if I were you, but the former two are good for bug-out’s if not much else ) and are going to bike around all obstacles (  not a perfect plan, but better than vehicular ).

*

So the last thing you want to happen is that once you get to your retreat is for crack head redneck hooligans to have vandalized your home ( remember the origins of “vandalize”? ).  Now, if you are like most of us, you are a solo survivalist. Almost any other hobbyist ( survivalism is a hobby, until you need it ) has a lot of company.  Hell, there is probably more stamp collectors around than survivalists.  Survivalists have pretty much got two choices.  One is to buy all the supplies for a buddy or friend, because the retard isn’t going to share your paranoia.  Two, you go it alone.  I’d wager that due to financial restraints, most of you go it alone ( you might have a wife, but you are still alone since the bitch is blind and spends all your ammo money on her shoes.  But as long as she has a nice rack, you put up with it ).  Having a network is yet another one of those things that is swell and nice and perfect in theory, and in practice hardly ever happens.  It would be nice to have a survivalist buddy that would live at the retreat, but realistically for most of us it simply ain’t gonna happen.  Because of the small number of survivalists, 90% of them- or higher- are Gott Damn Yuppie Survivalist Scum.  And since you are one of The Chosen, frugal survivalists, there is no way you are going to get anyone, even a wanna-be survivalist to live off grid, off highway, off shopping.

*

To afford junk land, it has to be a long way from town and a long way from grid power.  And most likely, it is a long way from employment.  No one is going to live there.  So the place, while too far away from civilization to be inhabited pre-collapse, somehow seems to be close enough for scumbags and anal lickers to be attracted to it and for vandalism to take place.  It isn’t just because people are asswhores that they destroy your crap.  They are.  Without fear of punishment, everyone behaves badly.  I think the biggest factor is simply that folks get bored, and they entertain themselves by destruction.  I know a great deal of thought has gone into trying to convince the population that our age is one of leisure and all ages long past were full of brutal toil, but I’d wager even farmer peasants had a lot of down time and boredom has been with us always ( it sure would explain alcoholism ).  Your retreat will be screwed with.  And even a concrete bunker can be ruined with enough time and determination.  If you don’t have a caretaker, I’d recommend total submersion of all possessions, even your cabin.  Have one hovel to live in and another to stash enough material that come the time, you can expand the first to make it livable ( then keep the second as a hide ).

*

Think of your shelter as a dug-out, but without the above ground door and window.  You actually want to bury the trapdoor that is the entrance.  You don’t need much, about an eight by twelve- enough for a bed and a cooking stove.  Actually, a six by six could work if you dug deep enough and had a sleeping loft over your work area.  Dig your hole ( and, as you discover how hard it is to dig, you will know why I recommend such a small area ), cover with a stout roof, cover in layers of plastic and cover back up.  When you get there, you uncover the place and install a window.  Or, you enlarge with an above ground room over the underground sleep area.  This way, you merely need to stash a window, tar paper and plastic and perhaps a saw and ax.  I’d have two pits, spread apart and with separated supplies ( don’t put all your eggs in one basket ).  It’s far from perfect, but far better than a stand alone structure that begs for destruction.  We’ve talked about bug out locations before, with a coffin sized buried sleeping space.  That was merely as a back-up.  This is an actually small cabin you can live in full time, whereas before it was just for emergencies.  You want big enough to avoid claustrophobia, but small enough to be affordable and buildable.  And, as always, bury wheat buckets in multiple locations for back-ups to your back-up.

"don't be a victim" book review and one other

BOOK REVIEW

“Don’t Be A Victim! An Officer’s Advice On Preventing Crime”

By John Elliott

When Prepper Press ( one of the best indie genre book publishers out there, making Paladin Press look even more like the rabid monkey molesters that they are, where the handful of exceptions prove the rule that they only publish extremely overpriced crap ) offered me this book, I hesitated slightly. I normally would accept any free book, but I got so wary of aforementioned Paladin Press books ( not that I read anymore of their books, just that almost every other publisher now seems to be following their business model ) that I paused a whole fifteen seconds before agreeing. In the end, my greed forced me to chance yet another book I wouldn’t like. Luckily for me, this book isn’t like most of the other police officer written drivel out there about burglar alarms and getting an escort to your car ( although, those of course were added ), but more in line with the higher caliber of offerings Prepper carries. I’m not saying it was perfect, or for everyone, just that if you go in for this sort of thing, it seems better than most and should prove worth your investment.

*

I see little need for such books for myself. I’m in the country in a crappy trailer, outside a relatively small town. I don’t drive a car. My credit rating has thankfully been nuked after two bankruptcies ( yes, I finally got it right after the second time and no longer get into debt at all. Well, I did for my land, but E-Bay real estate never requires any credit check and that is an investment-no more rent ever-rather than consumer credit spending ). I don’t travel out of the protection of the Great Basin region ( Las Vegas is NOT in the geographical area but in the Mohave ). But even so, I learned quite a few helpful tips from it. For instance, if your windshield gets egged, don’t turn on the water or the wipers and don’t stop. The cleaner fluid and wipers just make it harder to see out, and when you stop “to confront the young punks”, most likely it is a carjacking set-up. You might think a lot of this advice is irrelevant, but I saw most sections as being pertinent to everyone. The scams mostly against Seniors can apply to everyone. If you are silly enough to live in a city, you need most of the advice here. Even the foreign tourism to America advice can prepare you for the scams and habits of criminals visitors to Disney and such should know about. There is a section of scams by your auto mechanic- something most of you fools owning a car should beware of. I was actually quite surprised by the number of crime/scam observations there was to be aware of I had no idea about ( being careful to always stay away from areas with a nuclear missile or Fed False Flag target painted on them, I’ve been sheltered to the point biting dogs seem to be my biggest threat ).

*

Again, the book isn’t perfect. The author gives “standard, professional” advice I scoff at. For instance, bedwetting is listed as a symptom of child molestation. Hmmm…I guess that means, what, 99% of kids were molested? And the standard observation that LSD ( just after one use!!!! Reefer Madness!!! ) use can lead to flashbacks is so humping stupid I want to groin kick any idiot muttering it ( as an aside, one time under pressure from The Handmaiden Of Lucifer, I went to interview for a job I had no interest in, corrections officer. So, naturally, to queer the hiring process I admitted to using Acid wayyyy back in the day. Asking why this disqualified me after the official statement said that drug use was NOT a disqualifier but lying about it was, I was told about “severe flashbacks, etc.” ). I took LSD habitually in the service ( first hallucination a giant upwards spiraling snake as I listened to The Doors “The End”- it was cool as crap and normally I have a huge fear of snakes ) as did many of my squad mates who I keep in contact with. No flashbacks. Regret we can’t take the stuff anymore, perhaps, but no flashbacks. Perhaps a few of the old CIA victims who took pure LSD in connection with other brainwashing techniques had blowback, but I’m unaware of recreational users ever experiencing this.

*

However, this book does offer up to date advice of how criminals operate and how to even up the odds against them, especially with fraud. I would recommend it if you are middle class and living in the city. If you are more concerned with violent crimes than fraud, I’d skip this book and move to the country in a open carry state. Baring that, the advice here is sound. Recommended.

END THIS ARTICLE.  MORE BELOW

HIMMLER’S BOOTS

There was a few e-mails a week or two ago on a gentleman down Texas way who was soliciting donations to help with legal expenses.  He had been walking his son on hiking trails and had a rifle he was legally carrying.  When a cop confronted him, he got lippy and that was when all the fun started.  Now, I don’t mean to sound like the defense attorney who dismissed the claims of a rape victim by blaming her for “dressing provocatively”, but anymore this is what things have come down to.  If you answer the above LEO’s question with “none of your business why I’m armed, I’m carrying legally”, he is going to jack you up.  It ain’t right, it ain’t legal, but if you fail to kiss the ass of a cop or a judge, if you don’t lick the jack boots that look over you, you will be punished.  Now, I could make excuses for cops.  You know, they are under extreme stress, knowing it ain’t a question of if but of when they are attacked and are “on guard” all the time.  If a normal law abiding citizen comes off as antagonistic, asserting his Constitutional rights, the cop is NOT going to differentiate this from your typical crack head belligerence ( and, no, not all cops are this bad.  In general, the higher the population density, the more extreme they are ).  I’m simply amazed that most people are still living in such a time warp that they think they can protest the Vietnam War like a bunch of dirty hippies.

*

Anymore, your vote does not count.  Not because you are one amongst thousands that still believes in a Constitutional Republic ( outlawed since 1861 ), but because the vote has been electronically manipulated for several elections now.  There is no way that the central bankers are going to cede control, so you can bet the ranch that there will NEVER be a president who will contest their rule ( and, since the bankers ain’t stupid and include the government and the corporations in on the graft, ALL the powers that be support the system ) until after a collapse.  And you have ZERO Constitutional protections anymore.  Don’t go whining to your Congressman about anything because they don’t give a crap.  They will do what they are told to do, and since your vote isn’t counted they don’t care what you want.  So, since you can and will be “disappeared” as they see fit, doesn’t it make sense to not antagonize the boots on the ground who might take notice of you?  A cop sees you with an attitude, justified or not, he immediately says to himself, “danger”, and he will dominate the situation to avert danger to himself.  If you start licking his boots, he says to himself, “I’m still in control and there is no danger to myself”.  Stop thinking you have rights, because the only right anymore is “might makes right”.  And right now, the cops have the might.  If your fellow gun owner is starving, yes, he will rebel and overwhelm the authorities.  But he will NEVER rebel just over what guns or magazines he is allowed to keep.  Don’t bet your life on any help if you are silly enough to think of fighting the system.

*

Unless you are asleep anymore, you might have noticed that the “justice” system has been broken for some time.  You go in there demanding rights, you WILL get slapped down hard.  You think a maximum fine ( when a minimum would have been given ) was worth it to “tell off the judge”?  You need to check that macho attitude, because anymore almost any crime outside of littering can carry jail time.  Really, you want to be behind bars if we suddenly go grid down?  Instead of thinking like a rabid attack dog, who thinks offense is the only answer, look at a cat who retreats or attacks, as the situation warrants.  Sometimes, you need to play the weakling to escape.  Being a man means you are also the provider, and you can’t do that caught up in the system.  Sometimes you can’t be macho if you are the provider, like when you need to kiss the boss’ ass.  It ain’t fun, but we all need to do it to survive.  Think of cops as just another boss you must appease.  Reality sucks, yes?

THREE PHASES CIVILIZATION COLLAPSE

DIE-OFF

Civilized World In Collapse

Whenever you innocently bring up the subject about how everyone is going to die a horrible elongated death, say at a dinner party, you get looks like you just farted.  Civilized folk don’t talk about such things.  You can talk about how President “First Kenyan” Obammy is an anal rooting scum sucking whore, but you must also quickly bring up the fact that Bush wasn’t all that popular either ( one wouldn’t want to appear racist or intolerant of mixed race marriages since after all if we can’t diversify how will we ever have a half breed Muslim in office again? )  .  You certainly may not bring up the fact that both idiots are simply puppets of the Central Banks, their big silly lips flapping incoherently at will by the bankers.  By debating Democrat or Republican, you stay safely in the system, posing no harm to the system.  Any other kind of debate is seditious and dangerous to the moneyed interests.  And in case you’ve been asleep lately after the government announced that such legal niceties as The Constitution were bothersome and irrelevant and they would, without notice, arrest any citizen they deemed fit and would hold them without trial ( it was nice of them to warn us so we would save the money and not rent a billboard with a huge picture of a family member “have you seen this missing person?  Might have wandered off after his meds wore off” ), the velvet gloves are off.

*

Because you see, the once free United States Of America, when it adopts a favorite page from an Argentina dictator ( perhaps the CIA trained him too, so it was actually our idea to start with ) and starts to “disappear” people, it too is not doing anything inconsistent with civilization collapse.  It isn’t as simple as one day we are shoveling buffet bacon down our gullets and the next we are weaving weakly down the sidewalk before we collapse and die from hunger.  The first symptom of food scarcity is conflict in its wide and varied forms.  If you sat a high government official down in front of Barbara Walters and asked him why he is killing off American citizens, the last thing he would think of was that he is shrinking the pool of food consumers.  He would talk about order and control and the good of the group ( he might actually even believe it ).  The fact that more people are dying and hence the food supply lasts longer is not the issue ( it might be a side benefit, but one only realized in retrospect ).  When Obammy lets senior citizens die off after he cuts medical benefits, he isn’t thinking about saving on food, the modern equivalent of putting that feeble old Eskimo out on the ice flow.   As evil as he is ( and I know evil first hand from the ex-wife ), he is after all a puppet only and couldn’t think up these things on his own ( if he is so damn smart, why can’t we see his college transcripts?  Perhaps because he never went? ). 

*

When there is a surplus, everyone gets extra care.  We can keep retards and crips alive.  We can be compassionate about 90 year olds that need a steady stream of medications to survive.  When the surplus ends and the resource supply starts to contract, we have no choice but to triage everything we used to take for granted ( not that the groups in power don’t then take advantage and kill off their least favorites ).  We are already in resource contraction.  We are almost to the point where Russia was after the communists fell.  There was no mass die-offs in the street.  No starvation.  But life expectancy dropped.  A lot.  Everything else BUT famine killed folks off, from exploding violent crime to medical care getting a lot worse.  That was a financial collapse.  We are almost there, and we can add in Peak Oil and Global Weather Extremes to the putrid mix of ingredients.  And folks, that is a civilized collapse.  I believe we are in store for much worse, a Mad Max collapse.  My point is that even best case, we are already in a civilized collapse and that is the best it is going to get.  Rwanda tribal warfare, eastern European religious conflict, Russian economic collapse, they all happened in relatively good times.  Now, as times turn worse, you have global grain shortage induced conflict. 

*

Mexican oil production collapse is some of the worst around.  Almost immediately after they started seeing 8-10% production decline yearly, the US started turning corn into Fake Fuel ( it works great singularly on a farm, but it sure as hell doesn’t scale up to run an economy ).  All that corn had to come from somewhere, and that was from the stomachs of Mexican peasants as well as middle eastern ones.  Mexico as a failed state resulted from Bush Ethanol/Bush’s Drug War and Peak Oil combination.  Without dirt cheap corn as a subsidy for overpopulation, conflict erupted and continues to this day.  That is the face of High Food Prices.  No one is in outright famine ( save for a few African states, but mostly that is disguised by religious wars ), but the slow die-off continues.  The middle east rebellions are all led by overpopulated areas unable to feed themselves cheaply enough.  The people make no pretenses about their discontent ( when you can’t feed your family, you go to war- either low intensity conflict, crime or rebellion ).  Of course, a new king won’t be able to feed them either, but what choice is there?  All this is in relatively easy times.  Since the globe has been seeing more and more drought, and the energy supply is contracting, and the population never stops growing ( a year and a half ago we are talking about this problem, citing a population of 6.75 billion.  Now it is 7.  Time flies when you are breeding ), we aren’t going to see simply more of the above.  At some point, famine does come our way.  It is all very civilized up to this point.  It has mainly been economic collapse effecting food supply.  Wait until the western world sees actual food shortages.

ted gets ripped off


TED GETS RIPPED OFF

Before I talk about “Ted” the movie ( and yes, we are talking about something frivolous today instead of economics or how Seniors are out to screw us all ), I want to cover one of the biggest rip-offs I’ve had the misfortune to fall for in quite some time ( well, besides that stupid humpin green glow stick that recharges in sunlight- so bright you can see it in the dark!  You can’t see a damn thing one half inch away from it, but you can sure see the stick itself.  $11 flushed down the crapper on that one ).  I ordered the K-book “Obama Care For Beginners: your survival guide book to beating Obama Care”.  It was almost $6.  I figured, okay, let’s find out what little surprises they’ve hidden from us.  Ah, no.  This “book” and I use that term loosely because it was little more than a dog turd flattened on the highway, dried and had some ink smeared on it, was by far the worse excuse for a “report” I’ve seen since the 1980’s when I fell for a scam on fixing your credit card debt ( solution, a lower interest card!  This list of banks will give you credit at 18% instead of 19%!!!! ).  And I’ve bought a lot of dubious crap sight unseen from potential thief’s in low circulation publications ( today’s scams obvious have better graphics on the Internet ).

*

This book was, literally and I’m not exaggerating for once, 50% glossary and “history of health care here and abroad”.  The rest of it was just as advertised, the before and after effects of Obama Care on different classes of victims ( retired, business owners, students, etc. ).  But it was pretty useless as this information is already what we’ve seen in national magazines and newspapers.  You can get everything from Wikipedia that this turd report offers.  There was nothing covering how much we will pay for coverage, only the fines were discussed, and they only gave the maximums.  So, we STILL don’t know how much this Kenyan Kockbite’s tax is going to end up costing us.  I wouldn’t mind finding out, along with such things as what meds will be denied Seniors, and when, ‘cause I got a feeling I’ll be buying my parents some help with this whole thing ( while, of course, at the same time paying into Social Security of which I’ll never see [ oh, I’d take it, AND go eat $2.22 bacon and coffee, AND laugh in the face of my young indentured citizens to boot, but I seriously doubt SS will be around in 2028 which is about the time global oil supplies will be at 1930 levels- without the matching low population ] ) but this ain’t the book that is going to tell you.

*

The last movie I saw in the theatre was “Expendables II” which was simply awful, even if you grew up enjoying every actor who appeared there and their action movies.  I believe that was last fall.  I think it was even earlier that I had watched my last video, when I bought my own copy of “Animal House”( arguably one of the funniest friggin movies of all time ) last summer to celebrate my freedom from ex-wife payments.  You put an ungrateful bitch through school to be an airplane pilot, she ditches you for a fellow student, grabs the kids and you pay for her escape for 18 years- even years after the kids left the house.  I should have spent more celebrating, given all that, but I’m notoriously frugal as you might all be aware by now.  Buying a movie, instead of renting one for $1.30, is extravagance indeed.  Well, now that I’ve hooked up more solar panels I can start watching movies now and again.  I did put up the panels because I wanted to escape the cloudy day problem ( we use so little juice, with extra panels I’m recharged every day even with total overcast ), not because I wanted to watch movies.  Renting a movie usually involves the wife getting pissed so I try to minimize the whole thing ( she is visiting my parents for a few weeks to help out the old and feeble ).  Anyway, “Ted” was laugh out loud funny.  If you enjoy “Family Guy”, you’ll love Ted, a talking ( and cussing ), walking and pot smoking teddy bear.  To give one example, Ted is forced into looking for a job to support himself.  To try to sabotage the interview, he tells the manager he was busy being intimate with the guy’s wife. “No one has ever talked to me that way!”.  “That’s because their mouths were full of your wife’s box”.  “You’re hired”.  “Oh, hump!”.  Then, after getting caught humping one of the fellow clerks in the stockroom ( Ted has no penis, but evidently the fury friction is satisfying to most of the gals ), the manager once again confronts him.  That was nothing, says Ted.  Last week I was humping her on top of the produce which I then sold to a family with small children.  He gets promoted.

*

If you know of the director/writers other work, you know Seth is a complete wise-ass.  He makes this completely funny, then makes it into a message movie which itself is making fun of the message.  Ted’s owner/best friend is being pressured to grow up ( 35 and still burning a bowl daily, working a monkey spanker job ) by the girlfriend.  Ted symbolizes his inability to detach from childhood.  After all, if you own a teddy, who is your Thunder Buddy ( they hate thunder storms ), chances are you won’t buckle down, get a job you hate and allow a wife to lead you around by the privates ( ladies, we have ZERO problem being your field negro, signing over our paycheck to you and working twelve hours a day six days a week.  The issue is your lack of adequate compensation, only grudgingly delivered ).  In the end of course, Ted’s owner is allowed to keep his bear AND the girl. Hey, the world is ending already.  Go enjoy yourself, watch a movie that will cramp up your sides from laughter.

swiss miss


SWISS MISS

Last night I finished up a K-book, “Caliphate” by Tom Kratmam.  It was a pretty fine piece of writing ( at times a bit on the too spicy side for my prudish tastes ) but it was by no means Post-Apocalypse.  The story takes place a hundred years after three nukes on American soil start off the global war against Muslims.  The author tried to take into account limited liquid fuels, but by and large industrial economies wage total war so it was a bit of Business As Usual other than the air force using dirigibles.  The basic theme was “look what those silly twats over in Europe did to themselves by allowing Muslims into their country”, and taking that into the future.  I think the geo-politics were well presented and thought out, even if the geology was a bit soft.  A recommended book, but not in the post-apoc genre.  The reason I bring it up was, as usually, because it struck my fancy.  And, it was a bit of synchronicity.  In the story, the Swiss are the only ones not invaded and out bred, and they are surrounded by the Muslim Europeans.  And this morning, I read about how the Swiss just violated their contract with a saver and refused to allow him to cash in his e-gold.  Why are these things related?  I think the Swiss have painted themselves into a corner financially and since they tied their boat to the Western Bankers, they are being dragged down with them.  In the near future, will there be a country there that can even afford to defend itself?

*

I like the Swiss, don’t get me wrong.  I think they are a bit too obsequious to Uncle Obammy, and have been for a good long while.  I think, whenever I spare the Swiss a stray thought, perhaps twice a year ( no offense, guys ), I envision cool stuff like the Swiss Franc in the 70’s not losing value, nuclear bomb shelters for most of the population ( unlike, say, the stupid twats over here who at one time had all the money in the world to defend its citizens but instead chose to print up a few pamphlets instructing the masses to drive out of the city in the event of an attack.  Good thinking!  I’m sure glad someone with a driver’s license, permission to move a multi-ton vehicle at high velocity,  was so stupid and hence dangerous that they couldn’t think of this one on their own ) and the universal militia with assault weapons in every closet ( although, to be honest, I think the move to the carbine round was retarded ).  But obviously these guys aren’t perfect.  First, they never saw the Japanese watch threat ( or, they did and thought that no one would ever buy a cheap hunk of crap to tell the time.  Well, they were right, but several decades ahead of themselves.  Now, we spent $100 for a cell phone and $80 a month to keep it, and use it for a time keeping device ).  And they seem to have gotten entangled with the whole financial shenanigans besieging the rest of us except our nuclear armed enemies.

Okay, I’m not claiming expertise here.  I don’t have enough research under my belt to assign blame here.  Looking at the Greeks, for instance, the whole economic crash seems to have been mostly a devious maneuver by GottDamn Golden BallSaks.  Oh, I’m sure some politicians helped them along, but by and large the population never knew what broadsided them ( Americans won’t either, but they have no excuse because they’ve been amply warned ).  Perhaps the Swiss are in roughly the same boat, the banks acting as if they owned the country ( which might be the case ).  But regardless, the end result is going to be the same.  After years of sacrificing depositor confidentiality laws to the insipid demands of our politicians, Switzerland was losing customers to Caribbean banks.  But if I had roughly a gabazillion bucks in wealth, I’d much rather have a traditionally stable as bedrock country look after my money than some fly by night pot smocking dreadlocks wearing surfer dude down south.  You’d have thought the Swiss would have come to their senses, told the US to go hump itself, and reasserted its traditional banking protections.  But…if there was more money to be made in the financial market using the last of the deposits that weren’t chased away as a stake in a giant casino ( derivatives and such ), perhaps the temptation was too great.

Remember, the Swiss banks had trouble from Day One of the current economic crash with their re-insurance scams and such.  Obviously this has been going on for some time, trying to fleece the public for the gain of a few rich bankers.  So, where are the Swiss going to turn now?  This morning, the globe just learned that the Swiss will not honor their own laws, breeching contracts with its depositors.  They also don’t have any more physical gold ( one analyst thinks that the global paper gold to physical gold is a ratio of 130 to 1  ).  Forget what if any effect this has on the global economic scene ( I don’t know how much more warning you personally need to see this is all going to explode.  Cyprus, now Ireland, stealing savings.  The Dutch and now the Swiss refusing to redeem gold savings.  Only keep in the bank what you can afford to lose, starting yesterday ).  The Swiss have sent the message that no one is any longer welcome to open a savings account in their country for safe keeping ( if they hadn’t already gotten the message with the Swiss turning over account names to the US ).  What is keeping this country afloat, economically?  Do they still make cuckoo clocks?  What can they export now?  Their “banker expertise”?  Anyone can be a darn fine crook, without help from Swiss bankers showing them how to do it.  Stupid bastards.

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. My cut will be about $5. 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:
