Shenandoah: The Collapse Is The Easy Part

JohnGaltFLA looks over the horizon.

Stay the course.

More food, water purification, and ammo.

And keep building tribe.



ZeroHedge blurbs this report, calling out these highlights (lowlights?) as table stakes:

…We don’t know exactly what is to come, but we can all join the very few dots from where we are now, to the collapse of the first major bank…

With very limited room for government bailouts, we can very easily join the next dots from the first bank closure to the collapse of the whole European banking system, and then to the bankruptcy of the governments themselves.

There are almost no brakes in the system to stop this, and almost no one realises the seriousness of the situation.

The problem is not Government debt per se. The real problem is that the $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives…

Yes, that equates to 1200% of Global GDP and it rests on very, very weak foundations…

In related news, Alferd Packer‘s “High Protein Cookbook” is rumored to be headed towards reprint and a Kindle version.

Don’t forget to pack the hot sauce.

Wanted: Shady Elmers

The following assumes, of course, that the FCC and all of its personnel, along with the Communications Acts of 1934 and 1996, as amended, and the entire body of regulatory law and rules promulgated thereunder, are drifting ENE over the Atlantic Ocean in a plume of ickiness caused by the impact of a VW-sized meteorite at 445 12th Street SW at approximately 10:37 edt on June 17, 2014.

One would never do anything like what is described below absent those circumstances, right?

To operate an interconnected network based on RF, that RF signal must be kept relatively free of interference.

If the Bad People (e.g., the apparently-growing Cannibal Alliance) are depending on that RF-based interconnected network, then the generation of interference would seem to be a good thing.

Is it any more complex, in the first instance, then building a high-powered transmitter to broadcast on the freqs used by Team Cannibal?

And if so, wouldn’t be helpful to have a LOT of same?

Shady Elmers invited to speculate in detail below.

Expedient Stove

Senior correspondent HABCAN sends:

FYI. There WAS abnormal smoking at the first-time start, but I think that was just the painted label burning off the ousides of the big interior Heinz tomato juice can.

Ignition + 5 minutes to smokeless ‘rocket effect’ + 3 more minutes to hard rolling boil of COLD tap water enough for two mugs of coffee. The windscreen helped with the draft although there was hardly any breeze blowing. Pulling out the fuel shelf stopped everything almost immediately, and there was no smoke, a useful point.

Instant cooling by dousing with cold water to eliminate heat signature would only affect the between-cans vermiculite/perlite insulation slightly and it would quickly steam dry next use, but the whole apparatus could be disassembled if necessary as there are no soldered joints!

Note to self: Both the windscreen and the ‘utensil’ pot need handles (coathanger??), and might be useful on the stove body too!!

Think ohmygod and TSHTF. Experiments continue.

The Woodpile Report: Euro Going In

From the latest Woodpile Report:

Euro collapse

The Euro, the EU banking system and the Eurozone itself have been circling the drain since January of this year. Now they’re going in. Half the news media will tell us this has been common knowledge for months, the other half will tell us how unexpected and sudden it all is. Keep an eye so when it’s our turn the tipoffs will be that much more obvious.

Memorial Day, 2012: What We’ve Become

Charles Hugh Smith speaks the hard truth:

…Incentivize victimhood, fraudulent accounting of income/collateral, and gaming the system, and guess what you get?

A nation of liars and thieves.

All of whom claim, “I had no other choice.”

That is a sickness that cannot be cured with a pill…

It will get worse.

Alea iacta est.
