Overnight Open Thread 11-16-2012

So, yeah, we dropped the ball on this. CDR M should know better than to think he can actually take a vacation or something.

So on with an abbreviated ONT!

First up, it's that time of year again. Mailboxes all over the US are being stuffed with junk mail, as the USPS goes deeper into the red delivering crap like this:

So just for you, morons and moronettes, The Haterís Guide To The Williams-Sonoma Catalog

Item #02-496059 Bourbon Cranberry Relish

Williams-Sonoma says: "Sauteed cranberries, bourbon, shallots and herb with a hint of orange. 16oz."

Price: $40

Notes from Drew: That's 40 bucks for a bowl of cranberry sauce that everyone will pass up because we all prefer the shit that costs two bucks and comes plopping out of the can in the shape of the can. The second ingredient is LEAD. For 40 bucks, you should get the bourbon on its own.


An annual favorite at the HQ - the turkey frying PSA:

Don't burn your house down next week, okay.


CDR M phoned this one in, literally: The first 40 minutes of BSG: Blood & Chrome


[Update:] There was a call for boobehs. I thought I had you people trained to go to The Hostages for that. Or those. You know what I mean.

And don't feel left out, 'ettes.


That's it. Enjoy your Friday night a-commentin', and I'll catch you fine folks in the morning.

Oh, we ALWAYS take the Friday off. Biggest shopping day of the year, I believe. It's traditionally the start to the Xmas season.

Anyway - I'd been to Vancouver and Toronto, but Edmonton was the first time I'd been deep into Canada. Really great people. I'm a huge baseball fan, but I had never heard of the Women's World Baseball Tourney before. They were having that in Edmonton. I think some Cubans defected - heh heh. Plus I learned of the Canadien version of "This Land is Your Land". Then, in the middle of a serious conference, two canucks started arguing about something I couldn't figure out at first. Turned out it was Oilers vs Flames. I'm not a hockey fan, sir, but I can appreciate your loyalties. I like Canada.

102 How about a joke? Cinemax used to show these between movies a couple of years back. I remember this one:

A guy's sitting on his porch, sees his neighbor walk by with something in his arms.
"What do you have there?", he asks. "Chicken wire", the neighbor replies. "I'm gonna catch me some chickens!"

"You dummy, you can't catch chickens with chicken wire!", the guys exclaims. Sure enough, a couple of hours later he see his neighbor return with a bunch of chickens baled-up in the wire.

Next day, guy's on his porch again, see his neighbor walk by with something in his hand. "What do you got now?", he asks. "Duct tape", the neighbor says. "I'm gonna catch some ducks!".

"You moron!", says the guy, "You can't catch ducks with duct tape!". Again, a couple of hours later the neighbor returns with a bunch of ducks taped up.

On the following day, the guy again sees his neighbor holding something. "Now what do you have?", he asks.
"Pussywillow" says the neighbor. The guys pauses for a second. "Hold on, let me get my hat."

106 At Hot Air, they have an article titled "Sure looks like Israelís about to launch ground
operations in Gaza."


I glanced at the still from the embedded CNN report and didn't bother
watching when I read "CNN's Brian Todd reports on how tough a ground
invasion would be."

Someone ought to do a story on how before every American and Israeli action,
the western press does its best to demoralize us by telling us that



1. the enemy is terrifyingly formidable;



2. our troops have questionable fighting abilities;



3. our technology won't work the way it's supposed to.

Everyone's apparently forgotten Operation Cast Lead, launched into
Gaza in 2008 by the weakest prime minister Israel has ever had.

After three weeks of urban fighting--the hardest and most dangerous
warfare you can undertake--the Israelis had suffered 13 KIA while
killing about 1000 Hamas fighters.



Prior to the last invasion, the USMC set up MOUT (military operations on
urban terrain) training centers in Israel and taught our allies
countermeasures to every weapon in Hamas' arsenal.

When the invasion came, the Israelis did what the marines did in
Fallujah: They avoided the IEDs and EFPs on the roads by making new
roads--through houses. They used mine-clearing line charges (MICLICs) to
detonate IEDs and EFPs, most of which had been previously located using
drones and data-mining programs to determine the most likely locations.



Also, the Israelis have turned their obsolete Merkava main battle tanks
into troop carriers. The Merkava is the only MBT with the engine in
front and doors in the back. To make them into the most heavily armored
troop carriers on earth, you just take off the turret. The low
silhouette protects it as well.



Finally, the Israelis have the fully automated Trophy advanced tank
protection system on all their tanks and troop carriers, which can
intercept anti-tank missiles and RPGs from as little as six feet away.



Nobody should watch CNN anymore. They have no idea what they're
talking about. The last invasion of Gaza was one of the most lopsided
military victories in history. The hardened Iranian- and Chechen-trained
terrorists of Hamas were utterly massacred by the Israelis.

This is what Hamas does best when fighting the IDF:

But...You might not like the tasted of them.
Stuff that you like to eat is important.
So...I'd say buy onlyone case of MRE's. Put a few in each trunk of your car, and your bug out bag if you have them. But that is it.
As for the rest of your stockpiled food, concentrate on stuff that is cheap, long lasting, AND STUFF YOU ACTUALLY LIKE TO EAT AND DO EAT.
So pasta and sauce is good.
Whole wheat grain... probably not.
And make sure you periodically use and replace this stuff. Rotate it into your actual meals.

177 A scientific test was done to determine the density of Twinkies.
(www.twinkiesproject.com/density.html)

This was done by carefully measuring the dimensions of multiple Twinkies, and coming up with an average value for volume.

A number of Twinkies were liquified by blender, and the resulting goo's volume was measured in a beaker.

The result: Twinkies are, on average, 68% air by volume.

Good tasting air.

G*d Damn the Unions that caused the Death of Twinkies!

Anyway
- I'd been to Vancouver and Toronto, but Edmonton was the first time
I'd been deep into Canada. Really great people. I'm a huge baseball fan,
but I had never heard of the Women's World Baseball Tourney before.
They were having that in Edmonton. I think some Cubans defected - heh
heh. Plus I learned of the Canadien version of "This Land is Your Land".
Then, in the middle of a serious conference, two canucks started
arguing about something I couldn't figure out at first. Turned out it
was Oilers vs Flames. I'm not a hockey fan, sir, but I can appreciate

Also see Matthew 24 which parallels Rev 6 & 7.
A very charismatic world leader will sign a 7 year peace treaty with Israel. After 3.5 years he will go all stompy boot on the treaty, enter the holy of holiest and demand the world worship him (the abomination desolation spoken of by Daniel and referred to in Matt 24). This will be the period when the mark of the beast will come in. You must have it to buy or sell and must swear allegiance to and worship the beast (antichrist) to receive it.

Whether you have MREs, freeze-dried food, or a combination, DO NOT FORGET the Twinkies!! Get 'em while you can - although they may already be sold out.... And then you will have no choice but to turn to second-rate, generic knock-offs. Oh, the humanity...............

252 Just a little comment.

Got into a conversation with a younger women who was just delighted about Obama and kept on and on how women finally have a chance to be treated as equals and also finally have a chance to show that they can do the same work as men and get equal pay. So I mentioned to her that in all my life, that I worked with almost exclusively with men and always got paid the same as them. She looked at me skeptically and asked what I do. "I am a welder" Her eyes went big and she said (and this is word for word "Oh my god, how can you do that? That's a man's job"
Believe me, I cracked up laughing, I almost cried!

Here's a survival tip. I haven't implemented it yet, but I will in the next couple of trips to the grocery.

Stockpile some booze. Whiskey, beer, etc.

It rotates well, and can be used to barter as well.

Let's say a hurricane hits. Floods...whatever.

On day five or so...supplies may be low in the neighborhood.

If you need some help from a neighbor, he might not be so interested in cash (nothing in the stores to buy).

But a twelve pack of beer? He might do a lot of work for you if you promise him a case of beer.

275 Robert, another tip, if the dumbbells don't work, just put you heel on the ground, toe on the wall, and start the sit with your hands above your head on the ground. When you start to sit up, throw your arms forward to touch your calves or heels. Dig your heels into the ground, hard.

The momentum from the arm swing helps for unanchored sits.

They couldn't come right and talk about Rome being evil. Bad for your health, so they used symbolism.

Bryant Gumble used to harass Jane Pauley on the "Today Show" years ago. He was there to provide the color. Commentary.

Jane Pauley is married to Gerry Trudeau, who does the Doonesbury Cartoon thing that is stupid, derivative and not funny. Jane was also from Indiana and friends with David Letterman, who is also from Indiana.

Jane and Gerry are white, and they are going to Hell.

David Letterman's life is a living Hell already, but I think he should suffer some more.

I know a little about the whole wholesale bakery business, having been a delivery driver vendor for Krispy Kreme for 13 years, until my store went tits-up the first year of Obama's wonderful presidency. I moved, with one week's notice, to keep my job with the company. Huge mistake. YUGE. Learned firsthand in a shit economy the first thing people cut from their food budgets is luxury items, esp overpriced KK donuts. Which is so fucking great when your pay is sales commission based, as mine was. Bet the Hostess guys experienced a much similar situation.

When I did the math and realized I was working 13 hour days for less than minimum wage, I decided to move, for the second time in a year. Oh and did I mention my husband worked for KK too, so it was so great that we had a week's notice to move to keep our jobs?

So we moved back home and then spent two years wandering in the wilderness that is this economy. Hubby took a job with some friends of ours with a small business for shit pay. But hey, at least there were no benefits and the hours sucked.

I started temping in light manufacturing, for shit pay, with no benefits. But it helped me realize my OCD could be put to good use, and decided I wanted a "real" job. In manufacturing. In Barack's America. I know, crazy.


But here's what's crazier, I got a GREAT job. In manufacturing. In Barack's America. I just passed my one year anniversary with the company and finally have something I haven't had in three years, PAID vacation time. Unless you count weeks of unemployment between temp gigs. Which I don't

And even though I vowed hubby and I would never ever ever work together again, and thus avoid the horrible sticky wicket we found ourselves in the last time, he got hired at this same great job of Jan of this year.

Did I mention the new gig is with a defense contractor? Yeah, sequestration. FUCK.

But my very long tale ends with the BEST part. It's a union shop. And my local's pres was just so very insistent during the election that St. Barry would NEVER allow sequestration to happen.

I hope I get to tell him, "Told ya so" before I get my lay off.

If you are going above ground. Though digging a 48ft long trench I can see why you would pass. Still need to camouflage.

Perhaps buy a car junk yard. Move CONEX there. And surround it with cars. Or put dirt berms around it and on roof. Then plant sod like the Germans do with their HAS.

I try to think of efficiency savings because God wants me to be frugal so in hard times I can share.

Um, no, it really isn't. I've read it a couple of times, and it doesn't say anything of the sort.

And then calls an end to this creation because we're on such a course that no one would survive anyway. And then there's the resurrection of the dead, judgment, and eternal life, neither of which fit (as far as I can see) either of the alternative suggestions made here.

I think you may be confused by the aspects of Antichrist common in all dictators (If you look at first Samuel, God makes it clear that all governments are efforts on our part to replace Him, so this commonality is not surprising), but I think that's part of what God refers to as birth pangs-they resemble the end, but are not it.

My two cents, anyway.

1 Samuel 8 is the precautionary tale about what government will do. Government takes your best for its use. It doesn't take what is leftover, it takes its cut first, thus, it gets the prime choice.

Posted by: MrCaniac at November 17, 2012 12:35 AM (Ohhk6)

368 Um, no, it really isn't."

--- youve just restated what i said.

revelations is nothing more but a book about governments becoming tyrannical. the will of the people being sapped and armies arising from it. nothing more and nothing less.

it gives descriptions of a one world govt, or one leader being overbearing to the will of the peeps. and it just goes into the furthest extreme and what god will do to end it if mankind can not end it.

god admits he is a jealous god, and to not fuck with him. its a part of his personality thru out the bible that shines thru and shows his own humility, makes me like the guy even more.

but dont piss him off...he doesnt seem to like that very much...

Posted by: Adriane at November 17, 2012 12:49 AM (gh+mp)

432 275 Dude, hate to break it to you, but the end time stuff spelled out in Revelations happened thousand of years ago.

Revelations is not prophecy for our time, it was prophecy for the people alive when Jesus was crucified.


Scripture is unlike any other writings, particularly any prophetic passage, but also the so-called boring parts in the Old Testament.

Example the Old Testament gave dietary rules, what was clean and unclean to eat. Interestingly the "clean," diet is proven the most healthy by modern science. Example unclean = any shellfish. Clean = anything that has both fins and scales. The deeper insight here is that God is telling YOU how to be spiritually clean. Do not sit immobile at the bottom and eat all the crap coming down from above...like a liberal or Obama voter. But be a fish, with scales (protection from your immediate environment) but also have fins...be mobile, do not hang out with evil and think you will convert them (it) get they hell out of there when you can.

Moral: have some immediate resistance to evil, but get away from them, you will not convert them, they will pollute you.

Prophecy is never completely fulfilled one time only, it has successive fulfillment's in different ages. So Christ came the first time suffering and to die, but He comes again victorious and conquering, trouble is humanity never gets what He is doing the times he does come.

First time the Jews were offended he did not kick Roman ass. This time the Hippies will be upset He is coming to kick some asses, mostly those of the self-righteous and false religions...now who would that be outside of Christianity? ...think.

433 it gives descriptions of a one world govt, or one leader being
overbearing to the will of the peeps. and it just goes into the furthest
extreme and what god will do to end it if mankind can not end it.


We're just going to have to disagree there, I guess. There has never been a one world government, just pretenders (early pangs). That seems like a distinction in what we're saying, to me. If you're acknowledging that one of these attempts will eventually succeed, and all the miraculous details of Revelation then kicks in, then it's not as much of a distinction.

I'm just wary of taking what feels to me to be the Hollywood angle of 'If we do X, we can buy more time" (X being stopping the Antichrist in some fashion). My sense of it is by the time God's overt action kicks in, the situation is already unrecoverable.

The issue is not the threat though I fear the earnestness of the Jihadi more than Ivan the issue is that 90+% of the populace does not take the issue seriously anymore and this Government will not tell them.

Not telling you to be a doomsayer either just saying.

If we are LUCKY the opfor will go for a conex in a port and not a tropospheric EMP try.....

anyway I pray we get a serious leader soon or go another road.

479 I think there's also a little bit of a cruelty angle in the kosher diet. One major trait of shrimp and clams is that they're small, and it does seem maybe kind of callous to kill like forty animals for one meal, for one person. Sure, there are other traits that make shrimp and clams not fit for the kosher diet, but I think that size issue factors in, too. Kosher animals tend to be big enough to feed a whole family with a single kill.

Locusts are an exception to most kosher rules, but that's a case of if you have enough locusts to eat, then there's generally not much else to eat.

484 Bible Understanding 101

Huge overall theme of Bible: The search for Christ. First God narrows it down to a Man (Abraham), then he has kids, then his kids have kids etc. God keeps selecting through these kids, rejects Ishmael, selects Issac. Ishmael is the father of all Arabs. Then down to a tribe...tribe of Judah, then a particular line in that tribe...David, etc until finally you have Christ. This is real history but also Metaphor for God's search for Christ in you.

Some parts of you must be identified and rejected, for example Ishmael...from Abraham but mother was a slave. Ishmael is rejected, later they invent Islam a religion built on resentment and rejection, it is why it does so well in prisons.

That is why the Bible is a lifetime and mystical study. Because it is the study of all mankind and of you and what God is looking for in humans. Those that interpret the Bible in childish ways are not yet old enough or perceptive enough to actually read and judge such a work, much like an infant is not ready for a revolver.

First, we get all the candidates together that meet certain minimum standards of conservatism.

Second, we put them on a reality TV show where one is eliminated each week.

By the end of the reality TV show, we'll have the conservative Presidential equivalent of Honey Boo Boo.

that three guys on my dads side of the family had early deaths due to
chronic alcoholism tells me to back the hell off the bottle.

I was hammered on election night after slugging down 3 liters of wine and finished off my last three smokes the following morning. I've decided that I really don't want to smoke any more and that my regular binge drinking needs to come to an end. I doubt I'll drink again any earlier than New Year's Day and, even then, it probably won't be to excess.

I've just turned 38 and been a lush for damn near 20 years. The re-anointment of Jug Hussein Ears has really driven the point home that I can no longer sit back fat, drunk, and stupid if I'm to survive what's coming in the near future.

512 Bible Understanding 102

Mark of the Beast 666 etc.

Remember the book of Revelation is allegory and metaphor. God has always cast man's government as a necessary evil. However at the end-times this evil becomes all consuming, and according to Revelations unless God personally intervenes the Governments of the World will kill every single human being.

Revelations predicts that men will come to worship human government (are we seeing that now?) Did not the Russians an Chinese lose millions to this worship of Government? God says that men will accept a mark as part of worshiping the beast (Government).

Now whether that is a computer chip or tattoo, I rather doubt. I have about 90% accuracy in predicting if someone is a liberal loon just by looking at them, they have a certain self-satisfied look that is unmistakably the worship of the beast. Do we really need to see computer chips implanted? Increasingly if you are a Christian or just a conservative you are persecuted in Western society.

520 500 Cheri,

Reagan was serious and while a veteran he demurred on seeking praise as one.

I do not know. One thing about Perry is he was a serious military man.


The current occupant SINCERELY thinks he can simply charm his way to peace.

Surreal but there it is.

I'll be frank I am ruminating over whether the media dominated Blue America model can withstand the reward for its folly and if the media would EVER let the fog penetrate as OPFOR potential capability climbed.

The founding surviving may require a schism.

Blue land ain't serious about things he thinks "I got OBL" means "I beat AQ"

Let alone that AQ is 90% likely to simply be a sympton of the OPFOR actual rather than the OPFOR main body.

We are wilfully deluding ourselves as a nation as to how pervasive the enemy network is.

I don't think a red American state would.

I KNOW a Red America would be working HARD on undermining the Arab economy on a strategic scale with energy production.

The American people are NOT serious anymore.

I suspect we are unworthy of our power, and frankly seeing its maluse in the case of Libya whether or not we are all better off if that power is not so easy to hand to a 12 year old in a ~50 something body.

552 In other news, Schwab's got a new "Global account" where you can bypass the ADR system.



Briefly, an ADR ("American Depository Receipt") means that you buy 100 ADRs in XYZ Ltd. in the UK from (for instance) the Bank of New York (who hold a gazillion of such things), and they hold 3 shares in XYZ Ltd. for each ADR you own. Unlike actually holding 300 shares in XYZ Ltd., the ADR will pay you dividends in dollars and deduct an ADR holding fee. There's also a 15% withholding tax in the UK for dividend payments that you get to take as a credit on your taxes (both ways).




The Readers' Digest version is that you can substitute a 1-time fee for currency conversion (currently at 1%) for an annual ADR fee in perpetuity, so long as you don't convert back into dollars.

I drilled that sucker, shoved the door open and almost fell down the stairs the stench was so bad. She's left a package of open hamburger on the counter and it was rotten to the max, and the carpets were literally glued to the subfloor with congealed dog piss. After peeling the carpet, it took over a month to get the smell gone. Of course, my fridge was gone.

I now hate both Chris Christie (the Barry hug, the Springsteen crying, the going on MSNBC to establish his bona fides for the progs, and his assholish comment that we have to bring people in--a remark he made when asked about Mitt's comment about Obama's gift-giving.)

I now hate Bobby Jindal for also letting naked ambition go on display as well--bashing Mitt for his "gift" comment.
Funny, just a little over a week ago these two guys agreed that America was going to hell in a handbasket because of the entitlement attitude. Now, that's not a bad thing, they intimate.
Mitt's comment was on target. Stripped of everything else, the main reason a market captitalist lost was because he spoke of creating jobs....which implies that the job creators would have needed people who WANTED jobs...which is not accurate, it turns out. People want stuff. If they think they can take it w/out working for it, that's fine with them.
College kids take out loans...get a big part of them forgiven, people who aren't really disabled on disability, people w/out jobs on extended unemployment, welfare families with homes and food and medical all paid for, and on and on. I think Romney was right and I'm pissed that CC and Jindal are sounding like libs now.

It is only a matter of time until an Islamic nutjob sets nuclear fire to
a city (or cities). Top candidates outside Israel include, Rome
(capital of Christendom), London (capital of Imperialism), New York
(capital of Capitalism), Las Vegas (capital of Hedonism). The people who
were the least willing to prevent will be the ones screaming loudest to
do to another city (or cities) in retribution.

Several cities in the western US are vulnerable to dry winds, a bic lighter, and a jihadist

If the jihadists wanted to really fuck us up, they'd blow a major power grid and watch us kill each other

It would take someone with a mind to understand complicated derivatives, but there could be weak points which would set off counterparty defaults in a domino effect to crash the world economy.

Blowing up aqueducts from the Colorado River to Los Angeles would create a water crisis for 15 million people

Other things would be to counterfeit negotiable bonds or a large amount of cash

Thankfully none of them seem to be smart enough to think this up without tipping off law enforcement ... so far

584 From 1989 - Final Warning: Averting Disaster in the New Age of Terrorism.
By Robert Kupperman and Jeff Kamen.

Amazon - http://tinyurl.com/bugt7b5

Pg. 85 "A major power that publicly knuckles to terrorists, as America did with Iran and Syria, should expect to be considered a target for further intimidation - until it reestablishes its reputation as too tough to tackle."

Pg. 86 'Colonel Stuart Perkins, a senior CIA analyst, told a conference on terrorism at George Washington University, "There is a kind of natural selection process under way in terrorism; as security forces capture or kill terrorists, we are left confronting ever more violent personalities." ... That suggests that coping with the expanding terrorist threat will require bold, thoughtful, and creative leadership. But if recent history is any guide, there is abundant reason to worry.'

I lived in a second-floor apartment in an old house for 7 years. Some might have called it a dump, but it was home to me.

I got along fine with my landlady. I knew she was doing the best she could to keep the place up.

I paid my rent on time, and notified her about occasional problems without bitching or complaining. She sent me cards and homemade cookies at Christmas, and called me a "dream tenant".

When I moved out, I gave the place a good cleaning. If you could see my house right now, you'd know that cleaning is not one of my talents or interests.

I was raised to respect other peoples' property.

Financial chaos would be taking out transmission lines to NYC and some substations going into the financial district. Hit the communications' hubs there, and you got some real shit happening.
Look at NYC on 9-11. All the radio and tv stations thought it would be a swell idea to put a master antenna on top of the WTC. A few kept theirs on the Empire State Building. When the tower fell, they were off the air, and NYC residents didn't have access to information they needed. Same shit is happening everywhere around the country. Localities don't want radio/tv towers spread out, they want them centralized. When that happens, problems ensue.

DHS seems to be more focused on cyber terror taking down a grid. Whether Big Sis is focusing on jihadists or survivalists in Idaho is another story.

LOL. Yeah, that's about where I am with this. The State Board of Accountancy requires 4 hours of Ethics every two years.....despite ethics being pretty much the same since Aristotle.


Then, again, accounting ain't what it was. There has been a stealthy government takeover of the industry, and I can't say as I'm terribly pleased with it. As a sterling example, I may present FIN 48 -- an accounting standard ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fin_48 ) that requires that you evaluate your tax expense as if the government knew everything -- even that which you might choose to remain hidden -- and book a liability as if they had such perfect knowledge -- even if you never intend to tell them. But -- oops! -- you just did, there's this thing in your financials.
And to illustrate why this is wrong, wrong, wrong.....let me go back to a piece of personal experience regarding property tax. Now, not many people know or care about this (because you don't have stuff in various jurisdictions that is moving around), but there's an "assessment date" (which is random) for various jurisdictions. The problem is, you can actually have stuff in one jurisdiction for its assessment date, then move it to another for its assessment date, then move it to a third for its assessment date. Doesn't usually happen -- but, when it does, you can end up paying triple property tax on a single piece of gear.
What most places do about this is pay the property tax for all their property at their primary place of business and blow off the rest. The reason that I'm well-aware of this is that Dallas decided to assess all the booth furnishings of a trade show held on their assessment date. Pricks.
But here's the thing with FIN 48 -- you're supposed to imagine that everyone who could possibly tax you will tax you in perfect knowledge of the facts and circumstances....even if it's prohibitively costly to even generate that information. And, to top it off, you get to plant a great, big "audit me here" flag on whatever you discover.
If I had to do it all over again, I might well have chosen a different field.

It took years for my wife to understand why I insisted on a minimum of 30 days of food, water, medicine, and ammo for the entire family plus several relatives who could reach me on foot in case of a massive disaster.

It stopped being a real argument after the Great Blackout of '03 when we lost power for days, with a dozen kids trapped at our house, because their parents could not get back across the city safely with all the traffic systems down.

Having since watched Banda Aceh, Katrina, Sandy, etc. she is coming around to actually support it with enthusiasm.

Two guys, an incompetent county sheriff coordinating the investigation, too many talk show "experts" chasing vague witness reports and trying to be the first to "solve" it.

If it weren't for the impatience and arrogance of young Malvo, the authorities would still be stopping millions of white men in white vans instead of looking for two vagrants in a blue beater Chevy Caprice

DHS seems to be more focused on cyber terror
taking down a grid. Whether Big Sis is focusing on jihadists or
survivalists in Idaho is another story.

Jihadists don't tend to
think along those lines though, it lacks the outright terror and drama
of the 9-11 attacks. OBL was obsessed with airplanes



Posted by: kbdabear at November 17, 2012 02:00 AM (wwsoB)

It's funny what they don't understand is that most survivalists just want to be left the fuck alone. They don't want to take on the government, as a matter of fact, they would be very happy to not have any government assistance.

Long power outages and disruption to the communications grid scare me a hell of a lot more than planes being hijacked because of what happens to the supply chain with widespread power and communications failures.

Look at the NYC area after 2 weeks.

When I lived in Los Angeles, the first thing they reminded you of that was the likelihood that power would be lost for an extended period of time. No fuel, no ATM's, and a limited amount of food.

678 On a completely different topic, Sandy alerted me to something that has long been ignored -- when NYC was flooded, all the ATMs went out, and those folks who were accustomed to paying for Starbucks with their debit cards were SOL. So I've decided to have a bit of cash around the house. Not a lot -- as in "please have a home-invasion here" -- but enough to buy a few days of food, some emergency help ("chainsaw the tree on my roof and throw a tarp over it"), and maybe enough to get the hell away from the mess. In retrospect, it seems stupid to have done it earlier.

I agree. When shit gets real in a short term collapse, cash is useless. A stash of food and water and enough ammo to protect it is what is needed.

705 Gold seems pretty expensive now. I would advocate buying old used silver coins which are sometimes called "junk silver". They're old worn coins of common dates that have little value to coin collectors.

I bought some a few years ago. I should look into getting more.

In the olden days, most daily transactions between ordinary people were conducted with copper and silver coins. Only rich people had gold.

If you're using gold to buy a bushel of wheat, things have gotten bad indeed.

No, not a genius. I took the Y2K thing seriously at the time. I had lots of bottled water and MREs, too. Turned out not to have been such a big deal.

I wish I had more junk silver now, though. I think that will be more useful for ordinary transactions.

I've also been saving pennies from 1982 and earlier. I've been doing that for years. They used to be copper; now they're copper-plated zinc. The transition occurred in 1982 or 1983, I don't remember exactly.

719 You sir, are a genius. I wish I was a smart as even Jake in ID at $700/oz. I had other pressures and life choices related to large families, but my missing that boat has taught me humility indeed.

Posted by: Grumpy the Younger at November 17, 2012 03:11 AM (jts1f)

The reason I know gold was $700/oz 4 years ago is because I thought it was a good idea then, but since I bought none because, you know, life got in the way, I just ponder the thought of making $1,000 per oz if I had bought back then

Shotgun - 100 rnds/weapon 00buck. A couple boxes of slug.

If your concern is roving assholes on a short term basis, stock up your property and prepare to defend. If you're talking dirty nuke, no other option but to egress the area ASAP. I would look to egress in either scenario. Find a camping spot that you can get to in less than two hours.

I have done the drills for fire, but not for extended evacuation. I have trained them from toddlerhood that "front and center" means drop what you are doing and come to me instantly, but having them be ready to bug out with basic provisions in hand in a timely manner is a good idea. The wife might go back to thinking I am nuts but we agreed decades ago that she was in charge of everything, except security, and that when push comes to shove, instant compliance would follow. Solid advice. Thanks.

Posted by: 98ZJUSMC Waiting for the Sun at November 17, 2012 03:30 AM

100 rounds for the bolt seems a bit conservative.As a minimum, I guess, if you have a semi, also. But, get more than 100 if it's your go to rifle. Shit I'd hope to have more than that for something that lasted 30 mins, let alone 30 days if you're holding a spot. Mind you I'm not a particularly good shot anymore, but still, you can go through 100 pretty quick if it's fairly serious. Just asking, anyway. I can see 100 if you're going to be on the move and lugging, though.

Oh, ok... so you're considering something that's section sized, thereabouts. That makes more sense. Do consider though, that resupply may not be on the cards. It NEVER hurts to have more rounds. Even with the support, when the adrenalin gets going, you can fly through what you've got in your pouches pretty quick. But yeah, 100 per, with 12 men and perhaps semi auto support, could work ok.

If you have to hold a location that requires that volume of fire, you are talking about an armed and determined foe. A group of thugs will change their mind very quickly if they encounter resistance and if they're roving, they are probably not packing anything serious anyway. A couple of seconds of concentrated fire from multiple points will dissuade them rather quickly.

I would love to hear more, but alas, I must be honest and say I have no chance of acting on it. I married a woman who is so good a person that I am a better person just from having the privilege of having lived with her for 20 years. However, she is dedicated to a large family with some elderly relatives she cares for. She recently declined an interstate move where I could have doubled my (with no undue humility) already respectable salary. Short of natural disaster or armed insurrection she is going nowhere, at least until some of those elders shuffle off this mortal coil and they are statistically a long lived lot.

775 Yeah, most of the Meggy Mac thread happened because the ONT was way late but some because some dipshit decided to defend the idea that the traditional nuclear marriage was not the only valid configuration possible and the socons went apeshit.

785 I said 'dipshit' didn't I? Arguing philosophy and sociology with religious people is just plain stupid.

By the by, I was not arguing for same sex marriage as much as I was arguing against the state having ANY say about marriage customs in any way much less targeting legislation directly at specific segments of the population. Being an unabashed advocate of individual freedom and responsibility, such laws strike me as being on the wrong side of history.

However, like I said, "dipshit" ... and it is much too late for me to continue on this subject. If you would like to take another stab at it, I hang out on the ONT as often I can. For tonight, until my glass runs dry, I am only up for subjects like boobehs, jihadi nutjobs, weaponry, and perhaps some hockey if there are any other fans about the place (rarely).

Sounds like my neck of the woods. Southern Illinois is a different galaxy from fucking Shitcago.
Samey same, codes? What codes? Dogs? Yep. A little more restrictive on weapons, but we find our ways around that shit. Everyone hates bureaucrats and don't even bring your Shitcago mindset down here. New neighbors can be a little problematic, at first, until we break them in. Dogs are beloved pets here, but they also serve a purpose. They are what keeps the coyotes from sneaking in and running off with their ankle-biters. Had a few run-ins, over the years, with puffy chested neighbors.

We're far more Kentucky than Illinois anyway.

Booshwah! they get a wide eyed eye opening.

Those jokers would learn real fast about the first time some thief strolls up to them and cold cocks them and takes everything they own. Maybe a some time in an anarchic winner takes all and the loser dies environment might actually do them and this country some good.

792 I have no interest in arguing a position that has so many emotional sides.

I do know that blindly adhering to one side or the other without giving coherent thought to the reasons behind the other side of the argument can lead to name calling and hurt feelings.

This is why in most social situations people don't discuss religion or politics if they want to maintain decorum and any degree of self respect.

Here at the HQ, we're more or less anonymous and can more easily back away from an unsustainable position and come back later; no harm done. At a local bar or your neighbor's house, that's harder to do.

I've learned from hard experience that there really aren't any hard and fast answers to most everything. Even science can change long thought firm perceptions overnight due to some serendipitous discovery.

Math is good. 2=2 always equals 4 but that's about the only knowledge we have that is difficult to argue both sides.

That's actually the plan, as far as I can see. Consolidate everything into one big lump, which then becomes "too big to fail" and is thus ripe for a government takeover.
