mickey the twat

MICKEY THE TWAT

Here at the Bison Ranch we don’t stand on formality. Once a vague hazy notion of conspiracy occurs to us we pronounce it feasible and plausible and don’t wait for the facts to catch up. This morning my boss is talking to me ( the sub lieutenant, first tier boss, not the assistant [ actually none at this time, a vacancy ] or the High Jefe Exalted Poo Baa ) and she mentioned a dry ice bomb at Disney California, set off by an employee. Now, of course the first thing I did is laugh my ass off. For about a year now I’ve been warming the boss of a Jihad Attack on Disney, not because it is guaranteed although certainly plausible ( the Feds would have to dig up another Muslim patsy ) but because the boss simply adores all things Disney. Her idea of paradise is staying a week at one of the parks. So, I feel it is my duty to haze and harass her about all things Disney. A dry ice chunk in a soda bottle ( or however they are made- as if I give two craps ) ain’t a airline into the Twin Towers, but it will do as a “I told ya so”. And I guess the authorities are simply not amused, what with bail being a million bucks. You endanger park attendance and the taxing authorities might lose money to bail out their pension funds.

*

But as far as I’m concerned, customers boycotting Disney is richly deserved. Disney Corporation is a humping twat. I don’t know if they are as bad as Wal-Mart- the mule molesters eyeglasses I bought eight years ago and just recently took out of storage to wear didn’t last but a couple of months before the frame thread stripped and the screw won’t stay in, necessitating a jerry rigged dental floss tie down- but I still hate them with a passion. I’ve griped and complained and caterwauled before on their rigging the copyright laws to give their original mouse another few decades of protection. Their politician whore Bono who sponsored the bill got his just desserts by bouncing off a tree and straight down into Hell where he belongs, but The House Of The Mouse evaded Karma as easy as a seven foot basketball player stepping over a paraplegic midget. We can only hope that this pathetic bomb scare ( as the Feds fall all over themselves looking stupider than their floppy lip immigrant leader, calling a metal pot and black powder a weapon of mass destruction [ but then, when you call a few wind gust A Super Storm, your communication credibility is on the wane as it is ] one is paralyzed in fear that dry ice will next be banned ) is a solid groin kick to this fuzzy twat. And as proof that synchronicity isn’t just a cool song, another example of Disney’s evil came to me just two days prior to the bomb ( well, it was the next morning but I was 24 hours behind on the news ).

*

The wife is on a two week vacation to her daughters. We’ll see next week if she actually comes home. So I’ve been really getting caught up on my reading. As such, I’m watching a few minutes of TV a night if that- mostly Jeopardy. Flipping through the channels I come across the five year old movie with John Travolta and Ray Liota, the one where a group of urban professionals takes a road trip on Harley motorcycles ( Wild Hogs? ). A poser bunch of bickers meets the real deal and conflict ensues. Okay, this is a feel good Family Film. I get that. I didn’t hate it when I first saw it. It was hokey, no big deal. But re-watching the ending, something really clicked with me that sat off my “asswhore alert”. They have the actor Fonda Jr. sighing dramatically over the antics of his son, “takes after his mother”, chortling and moving on as the Evil Bikers drive away and the town celebrates its victory. That just kind of struck me as dangerous propaganda. Here is Disney telling young kids, hey, don’t you worry your pretty little head about things. When Bad Men come along and threaten you, there will always be an older wiser authority figure to intercede in the nick of time and defuse any violent tendencies.

*

So, hey, boys and girls, don’t you worry none after the Apocalypse if zombie bikers pull into town. Uncle Sam will come talk to these miscreants and save the day! Just stick around and wait for help! And, hey, don’t you worry none if we send a few helpful mercenaries to your houses to take your guns! We promise we won’t leave you to protect yourselves with baseball bats ( but if we do, no worries! Just like in the movie, a determined and faithful collective armed with such items can also win the fight! ). Am I reading too much into this? It just seems like Disney went from stupid goofy tales to propaganda. No one was going to confuse a talking VW Bug or a giant mansion size slug that housed a doctor that Talked To The Animals as real life past age six or whatever. Heck, you had movies about killing your dog from Disney. Now, we get Father Figure Hero’s so far removed from reality it would make for a bureau from 1984. Given Disney’s past greed and hypocrisy ( they established an empire using public domain books from the Grimm brothers ) tell me they are somehow benefiting from this Big Brother Rim Job.

*

Okay, how about a few Kindle Book reviews?

“AR Survival Dude” by Culex Pipiens. Started out decent and just started getting worse and worse and veered into unbelievable. It was only a buck, but I’d be hard pressed to give it even three stars. Mistaken ID leads a man on the run from the feds.

“Rudy’s Preparedness Shop” and “The Hermit” by Jerry Young. Both three stars. Solid pulp fiction apocalypse tales not to be taken too seriously. A fun break from the norm. Still helpful at times, but also can veer into tedious and/or implausible. “Shop” was fun, a lot about a guy running a survival store before the disaster. “Hermit” was an exercise in how someone with near unlimited funds could prep.

“Terms Of Enlistment” by Marko Kloos and “Poor Man’s Fight” by Elliot Kay. Both military sci-fi in the vein of Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers”. I really loved both and would give each four stars ( don’t expect any prepper stuff here, just solid regular entertainment ), although my favorite was “Terms”.

“The Bracken Anthology” by Matthew Bracken of “Enemies Foreign And Domestic” fame. Essays on things of interest to Patriots and Militiamen. One essay alone, “Trapping Feral Pigs And Other Parables”, was worth the whopping one dollar price. He points out the danger of starving crowds better than I ever did. Four stars.

Prepper Emergency Essentials No2

Buying Wheat

A lot of locations survivalists might find themselves stuck at due to life and its cruel vicious ironies such as limited areas in which to sell ones soul to a corporate parasite, a loveless marriage bonded with the threat of indenturing oneself to pay the blood price of a wife fleeing with the children, or a family devoting itself to removing its genes from the breeding pool by picking a location most likely to suffer from environmental disaster or war, simply don’t see a sufficient customer base needed to support a feed and grain store. If your city banned any livestock to include chickens because of that long ago quaint notion of “increased home equity and property values”, an idea shat upon after the housing bubble burst in a glorious explosion of bankers greed meeting reality, there won’t be any call for a store to sell poultry food. Which is what whole wheat kernels are primarily sold as outside wholesale circles. In that case you are going to be confined to either making long trips out to rural areas and shopping where farmers get their feed, or ordering from a mail order company. If you order from online, I’d highly recommend the firm “Emergency Essentials”. They are a family size business whom I’ve had the pleasure of frequenting many times. Service is exceptional and the great thing is that they include the shipping rates in the item price. If you are ordering a half semi truck full of grain, I’m sure other firms can sell cheaper. But for someone ordering small scale it is nice to know the shipping cost upfront. The semi, you pay on delivery for shipping. With Emergency Essentials, you pay for your package up front as you would an Amazon book.

*

Unfortunately, anymore today shipping costs are insane ( a book seller makes a buck, FedEx makes two or three ). If it is at all possible, I’d try to find a local feed and grain store. That way, your wheat after packaging costs under fifty cents a pound plus the gas to pick it up. Mailed to you, it is closer to a buck a pound. When you are buying four hundred pounds at a time ( a years worth of food ), and for many family members, this difference adds up quickly. If I were you, I wouldn’t sleep soundly at night without a minimum of three years food for everyone. That is $700 per person for feed store grain but almost two grand by mail. You can see the difference a few hundred miles makes driving yourself to the supplier. Now, a lot of feed stores only carry white wheat. The profit margins are higher. If possible, try to get red winter wheat. Whole kernel, not split, not treated with vet medicine or with anything added ( ask for untreated, human consumption wheat ). Red wheat has 15% protein content whereas white spring has about 13%. If you don’t have a lot of animal or legume protein as a supplement, the protein percentage rate difference might make a difference ( and, hard red is better at storage ).

*

There are going to be folks who can’t buy wheat because of allergies or those who refuse to deal with the hassle of grinding wheat. For those allergic, I’d go with rice. White only, as brown rice has oils that go rancid quickly. White rice is nothing more than calories and MUST be supplemented with proteins ( rice and corn are in the single digits percentage wise ) and fiber and vitamins. Otherwise, you risk severe health issues ( read up on the WWII POW’s and their health problems from eating only white rice. I’d recommend “King Rat” by Clavell, the “Shogun” author ). Corn used to be really cheap, which made up for its low protein and high moisture content ( it molds too easy in storage if you don’t get it low enough ). After Bush The Court Idiot and then Obammy The Kenyan Import and their ethanol to fuel program, corn is no longer cheap unless you have a farmer connection. Avoid it or at least beware its many limitations.

*

You can stock up on white flour. It has the same nutrient issues as white rice, but is a better product at a much cheaper price, and can be prepared with far more variety than rice. There are all kinds of other grains that can substitute for wheat, but expect to pay dearly and suffer from lack of suppliers. I think that wheat allergies are a problem, but also overblown by a few sufferers. Most people can eat wheat. Just make sure it isn’t your family by buying whole wheat from the supermarket ( or get tested first if you are worried about reactions ) in flour form first. Then, once you know what grain you can stock, both stockpile the crap out of it ( spring 2013 is showing no letup for bad weather and sooner or later we will see shortages ) and start introducing it to your family at nearly every meal. Since it is beyond retarded to store any food you don’t eat, get your family back on a whole wheat diet. After awhile, they will prefer it to white flour. I’ve had plenty of experience with “turning folks” this way. Your body knows what food is better. You just need to bypass the brain pleasure centers to make introductions.

*

Whole wheat kernels are a survival classic for a reason. They store nearly forever, are high in protein, are readily available at a very cheap price and are tasty ( wheat is The Staff Of Life for a reason ). Buy them as your primary defense. They are literally red gold. A bucket worth can keep you alive for a month at low cost. It isn’t a perfect food. No food is. But it is the perfect survival food.

evil pig humpers


EVIL PIG HUMPERS

Okay, I’m back.  I gave it the old college try and I’m not happy at all with half size articles.  Now, I know, you know and Ross Perot knows that I don’t actually ever have a thousand words worth of anything to say.  A lot is fluff.  A lot is meandering mental madness.  But it does have a purpose which is to allow a bit of free association in and sometimes a course but serviceable peal emerges from my irritable grain of sand.  I think I write better when I write at my regular length, and halving that just serves up a pale imitation.  I knew this already of course, but that’s what happens when I second guess my greatness.  And of course that means my half-assed magazine idea AGAIN goes down in flames.  Not that I had a lot of affection invested into the concept, it was a passing fancy.  Getting all grade school capitalistic on you, rather than stay the course which worked well enough these many years.  I’ll just do as before, compiling all my blog chapters into a book.  I have been thinking on reducing all my books down in price to a buck.  My reasoning being that a lot I’m putting into book form ( well, booklet form anyway ) now is updated information from my older books.  If I keep charging too much for them I’m going to piss off readers with charges of greed and unworthy business practices.

*

I don’t want anyone to think differently, because I really hate the evil pig humper Obammy.  As bad as Clinton was disgracing the office of the Presidency, this clown is ten times worse.  As homely as some of the First Ladies were, his bulldog bitch is much worse.  But I can’t let that effect my judgment.  Republican Presidents were nearly as bad, and other Democrat leaders were far worse.  Today I’d like to compare Obammy to the crippled monkey molester FDR to show that, really, we don’t have a heck of a lot to complain about.  And that is a good thing, the President no longer having as bad of an impact on the citizens as they used to ( of course, you know I don’t believe the man himself is in charge, but rather his central banker controllers.  When I point to the President, take that as shorthand for “the bankers puppet” ).  FDR confiscated gold.  The worst that has happened now is if you are dumb enough to buy gold on a credit card, it MIGHT one day disappear into the maw of the government ( each coin going to pay about one tenth of a second of spending ).  After he confiscated gold, he immediately devalued the dollar 40%.  Obammy doubled the deficit, sure, but what of it?  Before, a few simple humps were able to latch on to the illusion that we might one day pay off the national debt, reduce taxes and the size of government.  Deluded dreamers, sending money to Beck or Rush.  Now, with Obammy handing over the reins to the central bank, no longer even pretending to be in charge of money creation, we ARE fast tracked to the collapse economically.  But on an individual basis, you haven’t been 40% humped. 

*

Because Obammy continued the course from Bush on ethanol ( one thing that really peeves me about every single President, even my beloved Ronald Reagan, is their refusal to undo the evil of previous rulers.  Sure, Reagan allowed mail order ammo, and Bush let the assault weapons ban sunset without a fuss, but in general they never try to fix past debacles ), food prices keep going up.  And the price of oil puts additional pressure on those items.  But given a general deflation in discretionary spending items, outside of food the last five years haven’t seem much in the way of retail inflation.  Resource depletion is a factor, official money monkeyshines not so much ( not to say it won’t bite us on the ass one day ).  FDR was responsible for some really evil activities such as concentration camps, communist conspiracies, explosive government expansion and false flag attacks.  Obammy hasn’t done any of these things.  Now, I’m not comparing the California Japanese internment camps to German Jew Ovens, Japanese biological weapon experimental camps, Japanese “pleasure camps” or Soviet Gulags ( nor, even, British death camps for Boer civilian non-combatants ).  Sure, the Japs lost all their private property and it was an insanely un-Constitutional activity, but at least they weren’t killed or mistreated.  But they were STILL concentration camps, different in outcome if not intent.  Obammy is a dean of a clown college where two monkeys humping the same football is the BEST that happens.  Be thankful they aren’t actually competent.

*

Stalin, who as bad as he might have been at least had quite a bit of fashion sense with that beautiful soup strainer of his, had quite the toadying obsequious fanboy in FDR.  I can bet my last donut FDR fell all over himself to satisfy any requests the glorious communist king had, to include heaving himself out of his wheelchair and pushing down his trousers, begging anal penetration.  Of course, Stalin had better tastes than that and of course didn’t want sloppy seconds from the central bankers.  Obammy, despite the cartoonish bowing to foreign nobility, is nobodies toady except his financial backers.  The bowing act wasn’t anything other than a mental deficient unsure of what the hell he was doing.  And where was the worst of the government expansion?  During the Bush years.  Oh, the IRS gets a lot more agents to hunt down and execute any without the new universal “insurance” tax, but both were pikers compared to FDR who expanded the evil empire several hundred’s percent.  And don’t even get me started with false flags.  The 9/11 attack was a few agent provocateurs and a few hundred pounds of C4 ( and Bush, not Obammy ).  The American public dumber than dirt was what made that possible.  FDR had to goad a foreign nation into attack.  A lot harder to work.  All in all, we got nothing, nothing in comparison to what the people got eighty years ago.  Obammy is a clown, and not even an evil one other than in intent rather than practice.

flea 2


FLEA 2

My point in yesterday’s article was that federal gun laws dating back seventy or eighty years were clearly unconstitutional.  Any agent of said government simply doesn’t have the excuse that “the current administration is out of control”, or “it is just a few bad apples”.  If you become a FLEA, you are buying into a near century long illegal occupying force concept.  And I’m not just talking about guns.  Nearly everything they do is NOT a power granted in the Constitution.  It all started out so innocently.  The good old days when votes were gathered ( nefariously, to be sure, but at least gathered ) to pass a bad law.  Nowadays, there simply isn’t enough time to enrich the bankers before the economy collapses- the President simply says “screw you, bitchez” to everyone else and does as he pleases.  I’m often more confused than usual when no one makes an issue of it when the Attorney General ( again, just as with Hilary, we say “anyone but Reno” and our wish comes back to bite our ass ) holds a press conference and explains how they decided to start detaining/assassinating American citizens without trial.  He wasn’t asking permission, he was justifying the decision.  Your mind has already been made up, they are just putting spin on it.

*

They started under the radar, the income tax ONLY for the rich.  They made booze illegal.  No one seemed to care much, since nobody in the country had to go without, having a still, and everybody in town knew a friend of a friend that owned a speakeasy.  Telephone taxes ( only the rich owned a phone, and by gum it was for a good cause- Imperial Outreach to our little brown buddies in the tropics! ).  Of course, the Depression the bankers caused was the greatest opportunity to beshat the Constitution and crippled hump FDR is now worshiped for spreading his crippled wrinkly ass cheeks to the bankers.  Sorry, I’ll try not to get off track.  In the beginning, either only the rich saw any change, or the change was in grey territory.  By sneaking in under the ninth and tenth Amendment, the Feds started the water boiling under the frog. 

*

And this also where I draw the line with LEO’s.  At the local levels, they largely abide by Constitutional principles in that those powers not delegated to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people.  By and large, you could make a case at the state or county level for making booze or drugs illegal, as long as the people voted it in and no Amendment of the Bill Of Rights was violated ( yes, ENFORCING the ban on drugs involves violated rights.  I’m merely talking of the initial ban ).  That would open the issue of states banning interstate commerce when the substances are kept out, but that probably isn’t a huge issue.  If you are a local LEO, sure, you are somewhat enforcing tyrannical laws.  But it ain’t nothing compared to the feds, and most likely you are doing more good than harm ( in some states like California, you are violating some Amendments like the Second directly, enforcing those laws, but I think the general rule applies ).  The book I was so down on yesterday treated FLEAs like LEOs.  I see a huge difference.

deadly fleas


DEADLY FLEAS

This is NOT going to be a book review, but I need to tell you about a book going into this article to make a point ( and to save you money.  Once again, you are welcome ).  So bear with me for a second or three.  A minion recommended “Essential Liberty” by Rob Olive.  Bad Minion!  Bad!  No biscuit for you!  This thing blew bloody rabid monkey testicle chunks.  Oh, it started out fine.  The first third was enjoyable.  Then it bogged down into a Jason Borne stroke fest, a Spy V Spy Done A Million Times One Man Saves The Day From Evil And Corruption And The Glorious Republic Is Restored!!!!  Okay, the guy can’t complete a novel that moves along rapidly.  No harm there.  What pissed me off about the whole thing was the unrealistic portrayal of everything.  The Republic has been dead for one hundred years this Christmas.  If not sooner, when Federal troops overthrew States Rights ( as an aside, consider who gained the most from Lincoln’s assassination-not saying he didn’t deserve it, mind you.  The Industrialists from the North made another pretty penny raping and pillaging and enslaving the South ).  You don’t get to have a shining Paladin ride in on a white horse and slay a few corrupt officials at cabinet level and restore freedom.  The whole friggin system is that way and the only way freedom is restored is to hang every central banker from a lamppost.  Alas, the bankers have already pulled the pin on the economic collapse grenade to cover their egress, so that is just a fantasy. 

*

FLEAs, or Federal Law Enforcement Agents/Agencies is an acronym I picked up from Bracken ( I don’t know if it is original to him ).  Fleas are not necessarily more vicious or evil or incompetent than any other law enforcement group, but you have to ask yourself who signs their paychecks.  An inherently evil entity.  A fascist government run by the bankers ( the corporations have the least power or pay-off.  They aren’t the cause of spit other than exploitation, contrary to most ill thought out views.  Follow the money ).  You can’t stay pure, regardless of intent.  You will do evil for your evil boss, no matter how you justify it.  To think, as in the above novel, that you will “draw the line” at gun confiscation, is a fantasy.  A Feel Good Fable to sell the flag waving rubes.  The Feds already have been violating the Second Amendment since at least the 1930’s.  Where does that Amendment say, To Bear All Arms Except Full Automatic Weapons?  We are either free, or we aren’t.  You can’t get a little bit pregnant.  You think there is much of a difference between banning a Thompson submachine gun and a bolt action rifle? Both bans violate the Second Amendment.  Saying autos are not covered would be like saying you can own a black powder rifle, but only a muzzle loader.  You can’t have a breech loader because that would increase the rate of fire.  I’ll cover this more tomorrow.

food bank surplus


FOOD BANK SURPLUS

As I’ve said often ( but then, I say a lot of stuff often ), our food bank locally is one of the few blessed.  As most across the country are faced with bare shelves and shrinking budgets, ours is groaning under the weight of many and varied kinds of slop ( I’m sure our budget don’t look great, but that’s above my pay grade ).  Yesterday was a slow donation pick-up day and I got 1300 pounds of food ( Monday, surely a record, I picked up 4700.  Our secret is, it’s all perishable ).  Now, I know this can’t last.  We have an overabundance of grocery stores, a currently “good” economy ( was great, soon to be utter crap if the mines continue the barely glimpsed decline ) and a small town attitude ( the regular po folk are generous as usual, the rich twats are currently generous out of guilt ).  If any of this changes, our donations will wither.  I’m not necessarily opposed to this, as I’m killing myself here, but I also understand Job Security is never easy ( nor necessarily ever compensated, but that is another story ). 

*

When someone comes in for a food box, I try to give them what I would myself want.  I’ve been in their situation before.  I could give them their six thousand calories ( three days worth of food- ours are emergency boxes only as Food Stamps are long term.  No organization privately could feed this many people on a regular basis.  Although, they can eat at our soup kitchen which is one meal a day, nearly 2k calories in itself.  Those with the money need only pay $2.  I don’t know if we could scale that up if working folks started frequenting it, but I doubt it ) in compact form, a jar of peanut butter and a can of stew and chili with three loaves of bread would about cover it.  But I try to give them complete meals without too much processed crap.  Raw meat, rice, that kind of thing.  Wholesome meals, and filling, with sweets and comfort food as extra calories rather than the bulk of calories.  I figure with a few pounds of meat and some flour and rice, a big family can eat pretty good.  Well, as we all know, most people wouldn’t be able to pour piss out of a boot with the instructions on the heel.  Welcome to the end result of public education and subsidized ghetto breeding.  I understand when they don’t know what to do with a bag of flour.  What gets me is when they don’t want it.

*

Folks are returning food to me all the time.  Oh, I already have some of these.  Seniors are always giving me back FedGov food ( and they are the ones screaming the loudest for bennies ).  A family of four returns a big bag of flour to me.  They already have one.  So friggin what?!  Are you here because you ran out of food?  What if it happens again?  You dumbass!  That’s a few extra days food, if you ever need it.  And these ain’t backwoods inbred hillbillies, just regular people from working poor families.  But dumber than a box of rocks.  The food fairy will never let them go hungry, I guess.
