Stop Me If You’ve Heard This Before

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

Radio Shack, which happens to have more lives than a cartoon cat, is once again closing its doors. Which means, it may or may not, with the definite possibility that it will never shut, be NOT shutting like it never does:

RadioShack’s parent company, General Wireless Operations, is in the process of closing an additional 200 stores as part of the restructuring, the Wall Street Journal reported. The Fort Worth, Texas-based company previously sought bankruptcy protection in 2015, selling 1,500 of its stores to General Wireless.

If this makes you feel sad and you’re thinking to yourself, “where am I going to find a 4″ disco ball now?”, fear not. Radio Shack is like untreated herpes. It may go away for a few days, but sooner or later it’s going to appear again, blotchier and more repellant than ever before.

We all miss Tandy Corp

Thinking about the unthinkable

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

I have a buddy and he is an accelerationist. He wants the fall to come soon, and deep. There has to be a Tribulation before society can rebuild. The Tribulation should come sooner, rather than later. He wants social unrest. He wants to get from darkness, through the crisis, to the light.

I met up with him for an afternoon of conversation, beer, and food. He is my friend and I want to know how he is doing. I want to know what he is doing, too. It never hurts to have a survivalist, er, preparationist, in the loop. I have my cache of water, dried beans, camping gear in the car, and warm socks for the long cold winter. Maybe more is better. You know.

Shitstorm 2012

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

Those survivalists, they always paint the coming disaster they prepare for as distant in time; big and scary for sure, but the actual time is vague. They acquire bail out bags, map escape routes, and keep the filters on their gas masks current. They will discuss the diversity of cataclysms they prepare for, in detail. But the actual end date is vague. Or was. No, good citizens of Mitchieville, the End is Nigh: The World Ends between now and the American Elections in November 2012 .

A flock of Black Swans

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Amongst those that seek to prepare for the future, preparation for calamity is all the rage. Doom manifests from likely to unlikely; and much beer and ink is spilled in conversation over which black swan is going to show up first. Take your pick: N-people rioting, Plague invincible, Never muslim terrorism … Take your pick, prepare. Do it silent, the statists are watching. The problem being you do not know what the unknown is, until it is known. Let us look at another one, shall we?

The End of the World as we know it

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

There seems to be some sort of conflict brewing in the Middle East. Given that Iran is building hardened facilities to expedite their nuclear program, one can safely assume that they are serious about getting their atomic bomb. Their neighbor, Pakistan, has the bomb. The press is silent about the possibility that they are getting any sort of assistance from that quarter. The media is also quiet about the support of Russia and China for that state. I am sure the military types, whose job it is to watch this sort of stuff, are fully aware of the various troop movements, capabilities, and arsenals being laid in for conflict. Aside from that, would it not be kind of obvious that if Iran was planning a serious conflict, it would be preparing for a serious conflict? How about you: are you prepared? * * * *

The end of the world as we know it

Just check out this link * . It contains a partial run down of the unspoken epidemic of ‘youth’ crime across this continent. As anyone familiar with Youtube * , you know that ‘youth’ crime is disproportionately unreported by the JournoLista media * *, and there are now websites popping up that just address the issue *. And, thanks to a Court decision here in racist shithole Canada, I can only just now link to sites that would probably upset the white guilt slurper elites. So what? Ten thousand days of spending have not solved the problems of ‘youth’ crime; hundreds of thousands of souls are holding down pension generating jobs, banking sick days, and voting to preserve the status quo. It is not going to change any time soon. I guess.

The End of the World as We Know It

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Ah, Doom. Unleashed upon the heads of them that made up the witches brew. The angry pounding of a thousand enemies feet upon your pavement. The fringe leftists, now running things, now have problems. Foreign powers now meddle in domestic affairs. Open borders, not just for Mexican agricultural labor; but for spies and killers. Their agenda is the same as the Tapeworm media: to manipulate events to get their guy in office. Precedent set, easy to fund and staff; and now the fringe leftists find that there was a reason for a work ethic, inalienable property rights, and national spirit.

The Northern Front of the war will be fought in Canada. Just like the war of 1812, only with the latest weapons and the armed might of European hosts.

Lame Email From Teachers Union Threatens Chris Christie With Death

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

After asking teachers in the state of New Jersey to give up their 4 percent raise and to make bigger contributions to health care, Bergen County Education Association president Joseph Coppola sent this email out to teachers:

“Dear lord,’ this year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

I suppose there are quite a few things a person can get upset about after reading that, but I think the thing that bothers The Mayor the most is the unoriginality of the email. I mean, The Mayor received that email in 1996 to his Hotmail account. Then again, an email like that is fitting to any teachers union in North America: unoriginal, unimaginative and outdated.

Joseph Coppola, the author of the plagiarized “prayer”, has since apologized, throwing himself on the mercy of bad comedy, but Chris Christie isn’t satisfied with that. He wants the head of Coppola on a school cafeteria plate. Some folks have suggested Chris Christie should just drop the whole thing, water under the bridge so-to-speak. But look at it this way: if a teacher in New Jersey caught one of their students sending out an email like the one Coppola sent out – but instead of Christies name, had Joseph Coppola’s name on it, or a teachers name ~egad~ what do you think would have happened to that child?

Well, for starters, a police investigation would be well under way. A team of child psychiatrists would be opening up the child’s head in order to reprogram the little delinquent, and the parents of the young rapscallion would probably be hauled off to face charges in some sort of court that deals with hate crimes and other crimes against humanity.

People are losing their jobs, their homes and their families. The depression is relentless and is affecting everyone. But look how the teachers union reacts when even the suggestion that their pay should remain the same – not lowered  – but just stays the same. How dare the Governor suggest that teachers should be treated like everyone else! My Lord, what next, take away their 2 months summer vacation, their March break, 3 weeks off at Christmas and their 7 hour work day? Ahhhhhhh, nooooo!!!!!!

What a sad bunch of critters, the revolution can’t come soon enough.

Spend ‘Till It Hurts, And Then ‘Till It Kills

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

Figures released by the Commerce Department yesterday shows that consumer spending rose for the 5th straight month. Stocks and commodities around the world rose today with the news, as supposedly this is further proof that the American economy is back on its feet and running.

And that sounds great and all, but what about this little nugget of information tucked far into the article?

Because spending rose and incomes were unchanged, the savings rate fell to 3.1 percent last month, the lowest level since October 2008.

Consider that again: Stock markets around the world rallied today, and the DJIA rose yesterday on the news that American consumers spent more in February. Yet, the savings rate plummeted. This is the cause for celebration. Also consider that the savings rate fell to the “lowest level since October 2008.” And what was the savings rate in October 2008? Dismal. Absolutely dismal.

The American federal government is basically broke. Kaput. The States are in virtual bankruptcy and individual debt is through the roof. Yet, we are told the recovery is around the corner because Americans are spending more and taking on more debt. Excuse me if I don’t put on my party hat.

But money is being spent, it’s coming from somewhere. But where?

More than 7.4 million home loans nationwide are in some stage of delinquency or foreclosure, with another 1 million properties either bank-owned or sold out of foreclosure. An incredible 10% of all U.S. loans are delinquent.

That’s a lot of money NOT being spent on mortgages or loan repayments. I suppose the not-being-paid-mortgage-money can and is being spent elsewhere. Hell, if I didn’t have to pay $1500.00 on the mortgage at The Manor each month, I suppose there would be no reason why I couldn’t afford that spiffy new IPad.

This Friday the US jobs report will come out and there will be somewhere in the neighbourhood of 160,000 jobs that were created last month, and I’m sure Monday will be a banner day on the stock market. Just as it would be if the US lost 160,000 jobs. We’ll once again be told that the economic recovery is well under way and that good times are here again. You won’t be told that between immigration and people entering the workforce every month, that the US needs to create about 150,000 jobs just to keep the unemployment rate steady. Nope. 160,000 jobs will be proof that Obama’s policies are stimulating the economy. No mention that under his watch, 6 million jobs have been lost.

We’ve been told since the start of The Greatest Economic Downturn Since The Great Depression (TGEDSTGD)™ that banks, businesses and consumers need to purge themselves of debt. Debt was the noose around our collective necks. But now that that doesn’t fit the narrative, debt isn’t so bad after all and personal savings aren’t something to worry about. You would think that with this sudden reversal of thought that there must be an election around the corner, or something.

Green Shoots & Leaves

Dubai default fears push futures sharply lower.

The proportion of U.S. homeowners who owe more on their mortgages than the properties are worth has swelled to about 23%, threatening prospects for a sustained housing recovery.

Ahead of Black Friday – Has consumer confidence been restored?

Is the other oil shoe dropping?

‘Screaming Hot’ TVs Abound as Walmart, Kohl’s Push for Shoppers. Granted, this link is a few days old and you’ve probably already spent your Black Friday wad, but…

Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co., Merbanco Inc. and Renco Group Inc.have made approaches about General Motors Co’s Saab unit after a sale to Koenigsegg Group collapsed, two people familiar with the situation said.

Britain has run out of money. Labour has completed what it set out to do – bankrupt Britain.

Banks around the world still haven’t recognized half of their losses according to the International Monetary Fund’s managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.There have been 24 confirmed cases of a type of severe allergic reaction called anaphylaxis in Canadians who have received an H1N1 flu shot, including one person who died after getting vaccinated, the head of the Public Health Agency of Canada said Wednesday. The shot is safe, just close your eyes and let government take care of you.

There could be $1.5 trillion in bad debt remaining on their balance sheets, and losses on these bad loans still threaten the solvency of many institutions. Yet these effers are still alowed to kick the can down the road. Off with their heads, I say!

I found this on Drudge (*) .

I drank champagne when Obama got elected. I predict he will be impeached in his third year.

Now, bowing to the Emperor of Japan will get him alot of votes … in Japan. It will not carry over so well among the heteronormatives.

Time for popcorn and enjoy the fruits of the activists labors, er, policy. Activists do not work, per se. They eat other peoples money. And soon they will know why you are supposed to promote based on ability, not skin color.

Obama, the activst who gets more entertaining every day.
