If you have any contacts in the military, it would be a good idea to ask why so many vehicles are on the road, why are they battle ready and why are they not marked as US military?

Ol’ Remus: Are We There Yet?

screw-standard-1
A series of hammer blows from the latest edition, which opens as follows:

Imagine everything familiar collapsing like an accordion in the time between your morning coffee and your first midday yawn. It may happen just that way. In fact, it’s difficult to see how it can happen any other way.

Back in 2001, the Argentine economy all but collapsed. In a matter of days, the country went from mild recession to full-blown economic crisis. The currency went into freefall. Police were out in the streets shooting protestors. Unemployment and crime rates soared overnight. And the nation defaulted on its debt.
 – Simon Black at sovereignman.com, July 10, 2014

It’s said we’re in hard times, and we are in hard times. But as hard times go, these are the good days. There are those who have known real-and-for-true hard times. Not the poverty porn hawked around by social activists or the tiresome stories peddled in the movies. Actual hard times are ahead, not hard times by comparison but long term destitution with real privation, when we’ll fear a lot more than fear itself.

Ahead, stretching to the horizon, lies deepest 1932 but without the civility and yes, without the relative plenty. The Great Depression will be something to aspire to, where even migrant field hands drove cars to work. Actually it doesn’t all lie ahead, some of it is already behind us. Truth is, we arrived a while back. We’re like the Okies in that first month without a good rain, or the laid off employee who thought he was between jobs. The era of hustle and opportunity that lifted all boats ended a long while ago. We’ve fallen below the event horizon. Gravity is in charge now. We’ve entered an era of relentlessly deepening want. In not much time it will beggar belief, then plunge directly to the heart of catastrophe. You’ll never again use the word hungry as lightly as you do now.

You needn’t fear the Mad Max scenario ‘though, not for long – there’ll not be the wherewithal to support it. Nor should you fear DC overmuch, other than rogue Free Corps and last ditchers and everyone taking control of everything and arresting each other. It will remain an obnoxious meddler at the outset and a while longer, but it’ll be mostly habit. DC’s broke. In fact, it’s broker than you are. Meddling gets prohibitively expensive absent voluntary compliance. We’ve already seen DC metastasize from a dignified bribery and extortion racket with a credible claim to utility into smash-and-grab street thuggery. But more importantly, DC has become exclusively self-referential, a dead short in the circuitry, irrelevant to the problems at hand other than as an extravagant consumer of wattage.

The Tenth Amendment movement looks more dynamic every day, in fact, they’re already preparing Uncle Sam’s commitment papers in the back room. He doesn’t like it one bit. Too bad. We’ve had a family meeting and that’s the way it has to be. You see, not only is our formerly beloved Uncle paying his bills with counterfeit trolley tokens and IOUs, and not only does he get violent just because he can, he’s getting, well—bizarre. When we’re on the phone, he listens in, then says he didn’t. And he insists we expose ourselves to him as a condition of travel. Stuff like that. The senile demand attention in, you know, odd ways. Our descendents will wonder why we ever took him seriously but we remember him in his youth, when he was a quirky but okay guy.

What you should really fear is scarcity. It’s unAmerican to say this, but what you have is all you’re likely to have and chances are you won’t keep all of that. So, are you planning a mountain retreat with a well and a hand pump, more than a tank of gas from the nearest urban center, away from lines of drift, solar powered hot tub with optional foot massage? If you’re not there now, or nearly so, you’re not going to get there. In other words, time’s up. Get your affairs in order where you are, because where you are is where you’re going to be. And what you have is what you’re going to have.

Societies are normally this badly wounded coming out of catastrophes, not entering them. Which means we’re in no condition for what’s coming, and what’s coming is something not seen since feudal times. Everything’s on the table, including civilization itself. We’ve run out of good outcomes.

There isn’t even a name for what’s coming…

Read the rest.

I’m going to do a Kindle “free run” on my Enemies Trilogy from Monday, July 14, through Wednesday night. I have up to 5 days, but I’d prefer to hold a few in reserve. If this 3 day run takes off and gets attention among the libs, I can extend it to 5. If it doesn’t take off among the libs, I’ll just do 3 days, and keep the other 2 days per book in reserve in case my books are suddenly noticed by the other side. If and when that happens, I want to offer it to them gratis, to get it out of the conservative “choir” over to where it really needs to be read.

Spread the word, please.

Squirrels Needed

20061013__barnowlThree_300
From a north GA shooting club:

Fellow Shooters,

This is a general call for help from one of our club members and licensed falconer Mr. Clifford Cabe.

Dr. Patrick Hitchcock of the Lavonia, GA Veterinary Hospital is a recognized Owl Rehabilitator with over 35 years of experience. Over the years, he has help rehabilitate hundreds of birds and wildlife and released them back to the wild. He has always done this free of charge and many of the local Game Wardens bring wildlife to Dr. Hitchcock on a regular basis.

Dr. Hitchcock has been given six young owls (about 5 weeks old) to care for and he is is desperate need to help feed these birds until they are released back into the wild. Mr. Cabe has been helping Dr. Hitchcock with these young owls and has called for help from the shooting community.

These guys need fresh squirrels and as many as they can get. They’ve got enough squirrels to feed these owls through the weekend and need more.

In order to stay healthy, an owl has to eat about 10% of it’s body weight EVERY day.

Here’s what we can do to help.
1) If you have pesky squirrels that need to be thinned out, please do so with a rifle or BB gun (no shotguns please).
2) Do not field dress. Take the freshly harvested squirrel, put him in a plastic bag or zip lock bag and put in the fridge or on ice.
3) Give Clifford Cabe a call at 706-886-8585 and he will come pick up the squirrels pronto!

For kids only, Cliford has put a $1 per squirrel bounty to help get youngsters involved in doing a good deed and earning money at the same time.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Pass the word if you know of anyone not on our General News mailing list!
