Shovelin' 'it' against the Tide

Greetings good citizen,

I was watching TV last night (a re-run of an oldie but a goodie) when a commercial came on. The ‘come on’ was doom and gloom…well, you don’t dangle disaster in front of this kid without my taking a ‘free look’.

And what I found was this latest incarnation of the Tom Vu, ‘nothing down’ seminar only this time it might better be called what it really is, “Shoveling shit against the tide.”

Understand good citizen, the collapse of civilization is NOT AN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY!

What Bubba wants is for as many of you as he can, er, ‘convince’ to send him (um, ironically HE isn’t refusing US dollars…yet) fifty dollars/euros/pesos or the equivalent in silver or gold in exchange for his ‘secrets’ for turning a profit from the coming shit-storm.

Ironically, Tom Vu didn’t make a fortune in Real Estate, he made it from chumps like you who forked over $600 to learn the ‘secrets’ of finding STUPID PEOPLE!

Which is to say it is amazing the major TV networks can charge candidates for political office enormous sums for campaign ads when you can buy airtime for a song?

Half of today’s network programming is ‘Paid Program’…which is pretty interesting considering the consumer, the ‘average one anyway, is broke.

Another disturbing symptom of our badly broken economy is the fact that high end retail is still raking it in hand over fist!

Yeah, it’s pay increases you’ll never see and lower prices you don’t get because that’s where Bilbo Baggins gets his from…

Moving on, we have this bull shit from the corporate owned media shining a spotlight on Repubikan efforts to boost, er, ‘support their local economies’.

“The whole landscape is changing — it’s hard to describe where it’s going to end up,” said Mark Lange, the executive director of the Edward Lowe Foundation, a nonprofit group in Cassopolis, Mich., that works with states and communities on economic development.

The chronic news-loop image of Washington stewing in its own sauce of budgetary dysfunction is part of the backdrop to the new laws, state officials and economists say.
Equally important is that numerous state governments across the nation shifted to Republican control in last November’s elections.

First question is, Where is this conservative Shangri La we were promised?

Don’t strain your eyes good citizen, it doesn’t exist.

Just like that imaginary land where the already rich legislators refuse their paychecks so they can govern out of the ‘goodness of their hearts’.

Which provides a perfect opportunity to remind you WHY government exists in the first place. It exists to PROTECT US from THEM!

It was established to protect the poor from the predations of the rich.

Under an effective government there would be no poverty, the poor wouldn’t exist.

How unfortunate is it that we are faced with a more basic problem, if we don’t correct the massive mismanagement currently underway we will be faced with the battle to save our species (and I’m not saying we’re out of those woods yet either!)

Under the somebody pinch me category (which is to say how quickly they forget!)

We have the following:

Though Beijing has few options other than to continue to buy United States Treasury bonds, Chinese officials are clearly concerned that the country’s substantial holdings of American debt, worth at least $1.1 trillion, are being devalued.

“The U.S. government has to come to terms with the painful fact that the good old days when it could just borrow its way out of messes of its own making are finally gone,” read the commentary, which was published in Chinese newspapers.

Beijing, which did not release any other official statement on the downgrade, called on Washington to make substantial cuts to its “gigantic military expenditure” and its “bloated social welfare” programs.

The commentary serves as a sharp illustration of how the United States’ standing in the world is sliding and how China now views itself as ascendant.

So good citizen, how do YOU feel about a Chinese space station on the moon?

Worse good citizen, what do you suppose should be done to the TRAITORS who made this possible?

It’s the treason part of the puzzle that I think most of us find disturbing.

Let us rewind a little bit to the actual ‘solution’ to the problems facing our civilization, can ‘local legislators’ really ‘save the day?’

The REAL answer is YES! (But they will have to break dozens of national and international laws to do it.)

We start at ‘square one’, all economies are LOCAL! (regional might be a better descriptor as infinite redundancy isn’t particularly efficient.)

You start with erecting a ‘trade wall’ around your target population. You can only stabilize the situation ‘inside the loop’ (in a timely manner.)

The first ‘goal’ of your pilot group is ‘self-sufficiency’. They need to internally source everything they need for their continued survival.

Once the ‘target population’ is stabilized it can be enlarged by establishing a ‘national production plant’ for some universal product like renewable energy.

By and large ‘redundancy’ will be discouraged in favor of durability. The practice of ‘re-inventing’ the same product every few months is extremely wasteful…something to be avoided in the resource scarce future.

How ironic is it that the same few that are granted the ‘privilege’ of serving their community are in danger of becoming the first John Galts among us?

Once the protected areas are established the work of linking them up can begin.

While this is a ‘thumbnail’ of what needs doing, it is more of a plan than what currently exists.

Peak Energy spells the end of Global Trade, the sooner we get started, the better.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,


And don’t even get me started…gold/silver ARE NOT money so having a boatload of it afterwards will do you ZERO good!

Under ASP all money is ‘intangible’ meaning you can’t hold it in your hand, so nobody can take it from you!
