It's a Culture War Stupids

Posted By: SilverDeth on December 23, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Watching the unfolding drama over the New York coppers who found themselves on the business end of a Thug’s Colt, we can’t help but like the polarized fairy tales floating hither and yonder.

They make the most interesting… narratives.

Please note we didn’t say “factual accounts.”

Most folks can be broken into two groups:
– Cops good, criminals evil horrible and had it coming for breaking the law.
– Pigs bad, and criminals were just the product of their society.

The individual views might be a bit more nuanced, but at a fundamental level, the baseline most folks operate from is one of the two options above. It’s their starting position – with unique cases being dismissed, excused or grudgingly accepted depending on the details. The stratification you see here is a fascinating microcosm of the fractures forming nationally.

What people are struggling with, is an existential battle for survival by differing worldviews – mindsets that are fundamentally incompatible. It’s not skin, it’s not economics, it’s not geography, it’s not education, it’s culture. Of the various cultures in the FUSA, many view the world in a manner that is abhorrent to their competition. Since one culture getting their way will result in another being effectively destroyed – forced to tolerate things it’s morally opposed to – it becomes an ever escalating race to codify one’s factional beliefs as “law.” Compliance must be forced.

Before we continue, we’ll acquiesce to the following: 
It’s possible to “smooth out the wrinkles” in a country with either prosperity or total war. You see, wealth can be used to mollify antithetical cultures into tolerating one another – both at the top of the system, through “The Caberete Effect,” and at the lower end, with weregild. And of course, the complete obliteration and cowing of a people through absolute military destruction will also bring “peace.” That said, genocide is generally frowned upon these days, at least, when politicians are trying to pretend they are polite company – e.g. in front of their proles.

As the money runs out however, a nation is no longer able to slake the upper’s greed, distract the middle with trivialities and keep the lower out of penury. When the riches vanish, so too will the civility. Naturally, it’s exacerbated by politicians and civil servants masters who destroy the rule of law, de-legitimize themselves and take sides in the culture war for their own aggrandizement. But they are not the CAUSE of the illness. They are simple reflections of the CULTURE that placed them in power.

What you see now is the product of incompatible outlooks bubbling to the top as the prosperity flutters away – eventually one side is going to destroy the other – they cannot co-exist absent copious amounts of wealth. Some people understand the stakes, and as such, they play for keeps. Some don’t really grok what’s going on, and pretend this is all as White Knight/Black Knight as their various echo-chambers play it to be.

As the fault-lines widen, we expect that will change.

Update I – A Properly Nuanced Notion:

An appropriately adult understanding of the situation from Bill Quick at Daily Pundit.

“If you believe that your entire society is utterly corrupt and racist – because the leaders you respect and trust tell you exactly that – and that the minions of the state at every level want nothing more than to kill you because of your skin color – as the race pimp narrative has been for decades now – then it seems to me to make perfect sense that, in extremity, you would decide that if you’re going to die anyway, you might as well try to take some of your enemies with you.”

“I myself might reach similar conclusions if the apostles of statist tyanny ever tried to put into effect their full agenda. For instance – would I peacefully allow them to confiscate my firearms?”
– Bill Quick.

It’s HIGHLY refreshing to see consistent thinkers. We here at Deth H.Q. relish the sadness, pain, suffering and death of our ideological enemies – and we do so unabashedly. We expect the same from our foes.

We face a war of faith – beliefs – and it’s a battle to the death. Neither side can tolerate the other, as their foundational beliefs are NOT compatible. One faction or the other will need to be destroyed – and that will eventually happen. What “we the patriots” do now, how we act, how we prepare and how we organize will determine which lives, and which dies.

Enter the Thankless-Thanksgiving

Posted By: SilverDeth on November 27, 2014
Catagory: News

On this Thankless-Thanksgiving, it’s nice to know that others out there share our general sentiment…

Bill Quick, over at Daily Pundit, tosses a cold bucket of water on the carolers, and quite frankly, we can’t see any faults in his logic:

“We have a government of fools and tools, elected and selected by fools and tools, and that situation has reached the point where we now give ultimate power to people who openly hate our country and seek to destroy what little remains of it. And because of my age, I am able to remember a country that, while it had problems, was in every way imaginable far better than the degraded, degenerate wreck I see all around me. Which rememberance makes today all the more painful, and again, doesn’t leave me with much to feel thankful about.”
– Bill Quick

Read his entire article HERE.

As the family sits together this afternoon, bullshitting in front of the fireplace, listening to the grandcritters thump around and hearing the womenfolk clatter about the kitchen… we can’t help but ruminate on the world we’ve left behind for those rug-rats.

Bill is right to be depressed. Our spoiled, arrogant generation fucked not just America, but the whole damn world. Our grand kids will never even be able to comprehend the sort of freedoms we enjoyed growing up. Even their parents, our children, who we RAISED, can’t fathom the concept of a five year old boy trotting around in southwestern Montana all alone, with only his dog, a hatchet, and his bolt action .22 rifle.

We’d by lying if we said we don’t get a bit misty-eyed when pondering the wreckage we’ve left those little kids. Our generation’s actions – and shameful lack of actions – allowed this. It will only get worse, and soon, we’ll all be gone – and there will be no-one left who knew what it was like to be… free. We were selfish when we should have been sacrificing our fortunes and blood.

We’ll enjoy the turkey and the family. But, there is an unavoidable sense of guilt hanging over the festivities – like a cloying fog.

So the Rule of Law is Dead Now?

Posted By: SilverDeth on November 21, 2014
Catagory: Rants

It’s been dead a long time Karl.

From Karl Denninger over at The Market Ticker:

“So here you go folks — if the Congress will not immediately impeach, and you know they won’t, then they’re going along with it. And that means that there is not just a lawless President in Washington DC there are 536 lawless individuals and their minions comprising the entirety of the executive and legislative branches that have decided that THERE IS NO MORE RULE OF LAW IN AMERICA.”
– Karl Denninger

Read the entire piece HERE.

It’s been dead for a long time good sir. Laws only apply to serfs. Did Turbotax Timmy go to jail? Did John Corzine earn a guided tour of a federal prison? How many Mexican Citizens did Eric Holder intentionally murder with Fast and Furious? Yeah. The law’s been dead for quite some time.

The “Law” is now nothing more than a tool to oppress those who become a political liability.

What Denninger points out – correctly – is that the Republicans desperately wanted Jugg-ears to pass unconstitutional executive amnesty. Their owners needed the cheap labor to depress wages, lest margin compression overtake the rate at which they can lay off workers and buy their own stock with the profits. The RePubicans will rant and rave and scream for the cameras – and then quickly pass an omnibus budget… so they deliberately can’t use their power to “de-fund” this act. Then, for bonus points, after they intentionally tie their own hands, the gentry-caste shit-weasels will make this “intolerable usurpation” their Goddamned campaign platform in 2016.

See how the game is played yet? Voting? Pardon us while we laugh at anyone suggesting the “ballot box” as a “fix” to this intolerable mess.

Yeah, keep begging the broken system to “fix itself.” That’s worked out so well since about 1914 or so.

Electoral Prisms and the Case for Secession

Time's Up
Posted By: SilverDeth on November 6, 2014
Catagory: Time's Up

The fascinating thing about this election is how it’s been “co-opted” by every interested party of any political stripe – and how it’s being spun as “public reaction” to whatever personal bug-a-boo said entity maintains. In our view, such crowing is the work of pretentious assholes. (Naturally constant readers, since we are Alpha-Pretentious-Assholes, you can expect our own bloviation on the matter.)

Let’s examine the playing field:

The Huffington Post claims this “Battle of the Little Big Horn reenactment” is due to the moonbats abandoning Ear-Leader on the field of battle. In contrast, Red State would have us believe it’s because the moonbats stuck WITH Juggears like Reno to Custer.

Zero Hedge wants us to know everybody is impoverished and pissed-off at the farcical economy – while CNBC thinks the robust markets and lack of a $15.00 minimum wage somehow contributed to the Dem’s downfall.

Drudge headlines paint a narrative of folks keening for the benevolent rule of Rockefeller RePubicans – ’cause God Bless the FUSA! On the other end of the spectrum, the KOS Kiddies announce the drubbing is because ye-old DemonRats didn’t go full-on-freaking-commie – now that’s “The-Thirst-Mutilator!”

Soda-ban-man Bloomberg wants in on the game – he thinks it’s all the fault of Jesus-freaks and their guns – and only more government meddling in our bathroom can fix everything. Crazy-eyes Bachmann says it’s because “God hates faggots…” …or something. (We’re still not quite sure on that one… she’s a bit incomprehensible at times…)

Don’t forget us anarchists. The more bat-shit-sovereign-citizens in our midst think this entire thing is a reaction to invasive government eating out our sustenance and civil rights (Full Disclosure – That’s us). The black-block crew… who somehow managed to reconcile “libertarianism-and-extreme-socialism,” (impressive mental gymnastics that), want you all to know that the “Wave of 14” is due to not enough free government healthcare and legal-pot!

Everyone, (us included), is pushing this event through their own little prism, trying to craft a narrative around what was, (in our opinion), most likely an orgasm of anger at an arrogant, amok government that’s fucking up everything it touches. Rage is the only constant in the Dis-United States – regardless of which gaggle of nimrods steer the good ship Titanic into an iceberg. Near everybody intrinsically knows SOMETHING is wrong and that the state is failing. The evidence surrounds us – every federal institution is coming apart at at the seams – due to malfeasance, arrogance, incompetence or combinations of the three. It’s all become too conflicted, too top-heavy, too unwieldy to work anymore.

(In that vein… perhaps EVERYBODY is right… and our only folly is attempting to highlight a single point of failure in a shattered vase.)

Meanwhile, the great wheel rolls along… crushing in it’s path all it was allegedly designed to safeguard. Gone are the lofty ideals or noble intentions held by the inventors – the machine now only exists to sustain itself, and it will burn through every last crumb of the people’s liberty and treasure before it comes to a sputtering crash.

No one can agree on a plan of action or who should carry it out – and the only near universal truth at this point – the one thing that pluralities of Americans can align with – is that we hate the bastards running the country – and the sons-of-bitches who vote for’em. Which side? Doesn’t matter.

U.S. citizens are no longer united by beliefs, goals or principles. We have never, in all our lives, seen such a compelling argument for the dissolution of this nation. After all – What does the average person in Boise, Idaho have in common with someone dwelling in New York City, New York? Why should either have to sacrifice their beliefs when they are so alien? The BEST possible outcome is both sets of citizens “experience” Solomon’s compromise – each a victim, subject to having their beliefs trampled upon in an agonizing attempt to make everybody “suffer co-equally.” This is ostensibly the “ideal” scenario – as in the worst case, one set of people are wholly smothered by the other group.

What suckers we are, that we accept shared malaise as the preferred state.

Perchance it’s time to stop pissing on one population’s civil rights to placate another… and maybe we need to cease demanding folks be “satisfied” with a dead, split baby. Perhaps… it’s time to entertain the notion of going our own way peaceably. The current trajectory leads to Civil War or a Hard Tyranny – a near inevitability when a populous has become as Balkanized as ours.

But who are we kidding… the statists – of all stripes, affiliations and denominations – will never deign to that. As C.S. Lewis famously said… “They will torment us without end… for they do so with the approval of their own conscience…”

The self-crowned-nobility of the FUSA would never “peaceably” tolerate anyone crawling out from under their yoke.

So be it.

Election Editorial: Fuck the Stupid Elections

Posted By: SilverDeth on November 4, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Have a seat casual followers, and let us here at Deth H.Q. rant a bit…

It’s idiot season again… where the stupid people and the evil people work to convince the sheeple of America their sports-team is uniquely qualified to fuck this nation just a smidgen more than it was prior. Oh how we are a twitter with anticipation!

We’ll be bold – and cut right to the heart of this black morass:

Elections in the United State of America hold zero significance anymore. It’s a fucking disgraceful donkey-show – fashioned for rubes and simpletons who swallowed the kool-aid peddled in our deplorable schools. Truth be told, there is not one meaningful-goddamned-plug-nickel’s worth of difference between the gentry-caste RePubicans and their “frenemies” the DemonRats.

The Corporatists in the NeoCon wing lounge back and enable the Marxist Moonbats as they march us all off a cliff and into oblivion. One snake, two heads… the true purpose of the Republican party, (from our way of seeing things), is to serve as a “pressure-valve.” They stall, bloviate, do nothing of merit, and “hold the field” until it’s time for the Prog-nazi’s to push the progressive football father up liberty-loving American’s asses. When public outrage grows close to violence, the “Stupid party” is allowed to take the field and fumble the ball for a few years.

It’s a despicable false paradigm, and it’s transparent as all hell – to anyone not infatuated with bullshit notions and fairy-tails that is. To those folks… well… our only message is this:

Stay the FUCK out of our way when it comes time to fix this rolling disaster. After all… we suspect that when Joe-Six-Pack finally figures out who’s been shitting all over every decent thing in this nation, he’s going to be pretty Goddamned indiscriminate in who he dangles from overpasses – and we patriots won’t be in the mood to help sort the wheat from the chaff.

Welcome to our miserable status-quo. No silly little marks on a stupid piece of paper are going to rectify Jack or Shit. You want to fix what ails this country? Really? You want the panacea to our malaise constant readers? Are you sure about that? So be it… proceed further with fair warning…

To repair America… a hell of a lot of folks are going to have to die. We’ve gone far beyond anything “civil” mattering anymore. Unless of course, by “civil” you mean, “civil war.” Then… well, we’ll begrudgingly concede that maybe, just maybe… there is a snowball’s chance in Satan’s play-pen of something positive working it’s way outta the inevitable slaughter and bedlam. But no promises – revolt is always a desperate crap-shoot. The problem is, we sat and picked our ass until violence was the only credible chance at restoring the republic we once enjoyed.

At this juncture, elections are playgrounds for fools and the charlatans who dance them around like marionettes. Any rational person intent on actual, MEANINGFUL fucking “change” had best be laying in provisions and preparations for a long, nasty and bloody revolutionary war. The sub-humans infesting every strata of our political state won’t be whisked away without a fight. They OWN the system – and that includes the electoral process. One must be a special sort of stupid to be invested in the foggy notion we can plead with an amok, illegitimate, and corrupt government to “fix itself” – using an instrumentality it owns from start to finish.

Until the fuckers who’ve destroyed American liberty – and replaced it with tyranny – pay a quota in blood, (and that includes “US,” the patriots), fuck-all changes. (Don’t duck our accountability – we sat idle when we should have been killing these sons-of-bitches in their beds YEARS ago – so we too bear responsibility for the pathetic state of the U.S.A. Make no mistake – we will need to pay our toll to Charon – as our hands are no less dirty – soiled by our own pathetic inaction).

So fuck this kabuki-theater, and fuck the outcome. Anything important in this country will be decided by the corrupt courts, imperial decree, or the regulatory state. Welcome to tyranny, you Goddamned Serfs.

What do you intend to do about it?

It's Been a While!

Posted By: SilverDeth on September 26, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Let’s see if we can remember how to do this.

One of our favorites, Mike Hendrix, who’s set up shop at Cold Fury, noticed the “Great RePubican Tsunami” that everybody was nattering about seems to have died off faster than an erection in the face of Barbra Boxer’s uncovered tits.

Sorry for that unrequested visual aid, but the point had to be made:

NRSC: “After months of predicting GOP victory, the Washington Post’s statistical model now shows a 51 percent chance that the Democrats hang on. Why?”

Mike Hendrix: “Umm, no, that’s not it at all, guys. You only wish the answer was that easy. But you be sure to keep right on pimping those “moderate” enablers, partnering with rolling over for your friends the Democrat Socialists, lying about your nonexistent “principles,” working hard for illegal-alien amnesty, and giving Constitutional conservatives the back of your hand anyway, ‘kay? Because the sooner you’re crammed into the dustbin of history for good, the better for the former Republic and its prospects for restoration, slim though they are. MITT 2016, y’all!”
– Mike Hendrix

Read the whole story HERE.

Well well now. They truly don’t get the problem, and that’s side-splitting. The silly little Neo-Cons spent all their campaign money and the totality of their energy stomping out their base, in what one could only call the most hilarious self-initiated ass-kicking this side of a Chuck Palahniuk novel. Having done that, these sorcerers of strategy, these brain-trusts of political wizardry, can’t seem to fathom why they are suddenly penniless, short on campaign staff, and struggling in every race that was supposed to be a “clinch.” It mystifies them, and now, they crawl on their hands and knees, pleading to the same folks they spent a year annihilating.

That sports fans, is some hip-slapping jocularity right there. Maybe not precisely ironic, but absolutely delicious in a way only Germans can properly appreciate. In fact, they even have a term for it.

“Schadenfreude – Happiness derived from the suffering or misfortune of others.”

You really do have to hand it to the Germans sometimes. They make up the neatest shit.

Tell all these serpents, of either animal-affiliation, who slither by demanding your coins, to kindly go piss all over the nearest electric fence. After all, they can go suck some billionaire’s dick for money. Might as well drop the mask, since those chowder-heads are the only bastards who actually get any representation in this miserable failure of a republic.

Everything beyond the fellatio for the well-heeled is a dainty bit of theater to pacify freeloaders or distract the stupid.

And Lordy, do we have a bulldozer full of both these days.

Question of the Day: How Fucking Stupid IS Europe

Posted By: SilverDeth on September 16, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Don’t worry, it’s rhetorical.

Today’s gemstone is brought to you by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge:

Bank Of America Has A Message For Its European Depositors: “We May Charge You”

“Because Mario Draghi wasn’t joking about that whole NIRP thing. And yes, negative deposit rates mean just that.”
– Tyler Durden

You really need to see the picture for this one:

BofA Europe deposits

Read the entire article HERE for a preview of what’s coming stateside.

Allow us, the ever generous and well intentioned souls of DETH H.Q. to translate these four paragraphs for the i-Junk generation:

Dear bank depositor enslaved serf in Europe:

Because the simpering gaggle of pants-on-head-retards you chose to represent rule over you are, in fact, “retards,” you can now cope with what we in Goldman Sachs-ville refer to as “A Negative Interest Rate Policy.”

To convert the above statement into terms readily comprehensible to the Candy-Crush crowd, (since clarification is obviously necessary given the long chain of stupidity you consensually elected), we will be taking money from your bank account weekly for the privilege of letting us invest it.

Yes, you understood that correctly. You will now be paying us, to take your money and profit from the investment.

Now… don’t do anything pointless… such stampeding to the bank teller, (like a pack of spooked cattle), and demanding your laughingly pathetic life savings. Since, in the ever-so-likely event of a bank run, you absolutely won’t get it.

“Why!???” you screech? Because, plainly stated, we don’t have it. We lost it betting on Greece, Spain and AAA rated trash housing loans. We paid ourselves bonuses with it. We also bought politicians and regulatory commissioners with your money – and boy did that pay off! (Whew!) So no, you can’t have it back. We’re not good for it anymore, and we positively could not reimburse even 10% of the sheeple fleeing while the entire edifice burns to the ground.

You fucked up – you trusted us.

Anyhow… as we were saying… everything is peachy… would you like a complimentary Spider-Man beach towel? You can go lie on the sand and relax – while we are hard at work destroying what piddling wealth was spared the rampant inflation your central governments have been eagerly promoting for the last century.

First, the punchline:

Ebola Evacuations to US Greater than Previously Known…

The stunningly intelligent and omnipresent authority figures we’ve nominally elected – under the deluded fantasy they in any way represent our best interest – have been hauling “a few” more plagued folks they they’ve admitted to. Oh, and by “a few” they actually mean “scores.”

Frankly, We’re cheering on team Ebola at this point. We, as a nation, fucking deserve it – look at who we-the-stupid put in charge of us: Republocrats, Libservatives, Commies, Neo-cons – nimrod statists all. These worthless piles of sub-human detritus aren’t worth the match and gasoline it’d take to burn their freshly hung corpses. (In our opinion).

At least Ebola is “refreshingly honest” about what it is… and what it’s intentions are…

“Hi, I am a horrible disease, and I kill 63.7% of the folks that get me. Nice to meet you!”

We here at DETH H.Q. would select the modern day black death six days a week and twice on Sunday over the drool-cup clad leper colony that is the government of this collapsing, bankrupt, farcical mockery of third-rate banana republic.

Bill Quick - The 2014 Election Scam

Posted By: SilverDeth on September 9, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Bill Quick over at Daily Pundit reminds us all of how pointless the elections in this country are:

“Even in a GOP landslide, we are looking at a Boehner/McConnell-brokered deal with Obama and the Democrats to impose scamnesty on America, for the benefit of the various special interests that finance both parties and hold the real power in our nation today. And that will be accompanied by similar sub-rosa agreements to leave Obamacare in place so that it can serve as an election issue two years hence – for both sides.”
– Bill Quick

Do read the entire piece here – the closer is a real kick in the balls. As it should be.

This whole country is going down in a flaming Goddamned wreck. We wish we could say we were surprised, or that we couldn’t see it coming… but that of course would be a lie.

It’s patently obvious to anyone willing to see how thoroughly fucked this entire enterprise is.Our only request is that the hangings are televised when it comes time to pay the butcher’s tab.

So many necks in need of a good stretching – so little good television… hey… everybody can profit from this… Hrmmmm…. we wonder… what would the Nielsen Ratings be on the entire House of Representative/Senate getting strung up? So many fascinating hypotheticals to ponder…

Quote of the Day: "Ancient Self Help"

Posted By: SilverDeth on August 29, 2014
Catagory: Rants

From God’s lips to the good professor’s ear:

“A moral response to this behavior might involve those officials, among others, hanging from lampposts. The legal system is, ultimately, an ancient bargain: Renounce your mob violence and blood feuds and we will provide you with justice. It could be argued that such a default as this calls the whole bargain into question, and justifies self-help along ancient lines.”
– Glenn Reynolds

Sooner or later, folks will have to remind the gentry-caste that law is fairly applied not for the benefit of us serfs – but to protect the politicians from our well-earned, and wholly justified wrath.

Thug V.S. Thug in St. Louis...

Catagory: Rants

Well, we here at DETH H.Q. have been watching the regularly scheduled disintegration of the FUSA with great interest over the last week. Seeing the gangstas, hood-rats, free-shit-army and the Mall-Ninja-COPerators destroy one another has been an epic nimrod-palooza. (And more free entertainment than a back-to-back ad-free LoTR marathon).

In the interest of returning to our popcorn and 24-hour riot-cam, we’ll keep this pithy:

1: The violent hot-head who managed to develop six extra ventilation ports was a hunk of human garbage – who leaves society better for his passing… fuck him forever… seriously… on behalf of the person you would have eventually gotten around to murdering… we thank you for leaping off this mortal coil… if President Drone-kill had a son, he’d look just like you…

…that said…

2: The fucking punishment for petty theft and aggravated assault is not summary execution… delivered on the spot by some Judge-Dredd-wanna-be-pig with more tac-gear crammed into his cruiser than would be tolerated in the hands of any member of Force-Freaking-RECON.

These asshole hogs rodding-around in their Dodge Chargers and MRAPs give black-nylon a bad name. They strut around dispensing violence, intimidation and death any damn time they get the notion to – with the full sanction of the state. The “Police” are every bit as rotten and corrupt as the criminal element they purport to guard the public from. The sad truth is, they are indistinguishable from most any street-gang – the chief differences being a stricter dress-code and access to military grade munitions. (Paid for by you – since it’s your “patriotic duty” to foot the bill when they shoot your pet…)

We really can’t decide who to hate more in this clown-show.

Frankly… as far as we are concerned, two groups of irredeemable shitheads, (enemies of personal liberty, safety and freedom all), are doing their level-best to kill, maim and damage one another. We wish them all enormous success in their endeavors.

Remember When We Told You Body Armor Was Next?

We do.

Twas not long after we told you to stock up on ammunition and magazines. (Proceeding the current shortage of course…).

From Kurt Hofmann at The Examiner:

“At the end of July, United States Representative Mike Honda (D-CA) introduced H.R. 5344, the “Responsible Body Armor Possession Act.” Hmm . . . is he saying that in a dangerous world, it’s irresponsible to be without body armor, so he wants to mandate its possession? That would be awfully heavy on the nanny state paternalism (and obviously not within the purview of any Constitutionally delegated power of the federal government), but one could perhaps argue that it’s at least well intended.”

“That, though, is not at all what he has in mind. His idea of keeping the possession of body armor “responsible” is to restrict that possession to only the government’s hired muscle”
– Kurt Hofmann

We hate to say “We told you so…” but… well… we fucking told you so. The FedGovCoGoons by now see the writing on the wall, in no uncertain terms, and will take steps to stack the revolutionary deck in their favor. That said, there’s still some time to use your fiat-funny-monie to say “FUCK YOU” to your would-be-masters.

THIS is where we bought our rifle plates. The price was right, and the quality was as expected. (We make no money from, and are in no way affiliated with the operators of this website.)

In that case… we’ll defer to your… manliness or… whatever…

Bless our frigid black hearts, if Sgt. Mom over at Chicago Boyz didn’t just put the whipped cream and cherry on top of the most perfect Patriot Sunday ever:

“Me – I have now had the experience in several different theaters of realizing that certain people, politicians, media, intellectual and entertainment figures of note, or even the establishments they work for – are no longer our countrymen. In fact, those certain people and their establishments deeply despise us ordinary, moderately-conservative, content and hard-working middle class citizens. They hate us, indeed – with a passion that convulses their souls, and drips in their every word like corrosive acid. They hate that we are individual, un-biddable, independent and proud. They hate it even more ferociously that we are not humble in the manner of the 19th century lower class Europeans in the face of nobles and bureaucrats, and they despise everything that we honor and relish, from church membership, to where we choose to shop, to adorn our homes and what we do for hobbies. They hate it that we have the franchise and exercise it, too – and even assume that it is our right and duty to be politically-involved; most recently with movements like the Tea Party. (Which, inter alia, shook and is still shaking the current ruling class down to its bones – hence the viciousness of the reaction to it, from the media, to popular entertainment and to the long-established political parties.) Most of all, I think – they despise us for not giving a damn what they think particularly, and rejecting practically everything that they tell us to do – ride public transportation, move into urban stack-a-prole housing, give up eating meat (or much of anything else), and continuing to believe that we can raise our own children and sort out our own lives without self-elected nannies breathing down our necks 24-7. Very likely the well-manicured and delicate hands of the new ruling class itch for a whip to give us all a good thrashing for our temerity. Indeed – they are no longer our countrymen in spirit, any more than the Tory sympathizers who departed the American colonies two hundred years and more ago are.”

“The most galling quality of the TWANLOC ruling class is how they constantly preen themselves on being so cultured, so tolerant, intellectual, competent and so very, very non-racist…unlike the ordinary rest of us; the veteran, the blue-collar working stiff, the stay-at-home-mom, the cashier working at the local grocery store, the owners of companies large and small. Alas, nine out of ten, the TWANLOC ruling class is not particularly cultured, tolerant or intellectual. Nine out of ten, the most vicious bigotries and stereotypes drop from their lips and into their narratives…and yet they remain blissfully unaware of their own faults and shortcomings.

“So the division has widened and deepened over the last decade or so. Now we stand at a point where our international standing has never been lower, we barely have any border security at all, a number of cities which once were manufacturing power-houses are all but ruined, federal bureaucracies have been corrupted and weaponized against generally-law abiding and tax-paying citizens, the economy – despite increasingly desperate-sounding news releases to the contrary – is seemingly on the verge of tanking entirely. The anger at the TWANLOC ruling class who appear responsible for bringing this about is building. When it will come to a full boil – in that the anger will be expressed in more than comments, editorials, blog-posts and radio-call in shows – and in response to what kind of provocation is anyone’s guess. The tinder is everywhere, and the gasoline is poured. All it lacks is the spark; something like the stand-off at the Bundy place earlier this year, someone responding with a weapon to being the almost-victim of a knock-out game, a spontaneous local protest blockading a place where illegal immigrants are being processed, as in California in the last few days…that will light the spark. Likely TWANLOCs will be surprised. Likely they will excuse themselves of any responsibility for creating the conflagration. But we won’t. ”
– Sgt. Mom

Read every last word HERE.

These three paragraphs say everything that needs said. TWANLOC are our enemy. There is no point making nice with them – or pretending malfeasance is masquerading as stupidity. They are the foes of everything we patriots are willing to suffer, die and slay over. See their actions and know their intent by deed – these wretched shit-weasels mean to enslave our loved ones, destroy our culture, and ultimately… kill us.

Stop making nice – they are human wreckage…. Detritus…

…and before this is over, either they will exterminate us to the man – or we will have to destroy them.Cope with this reality any way you must, accept, and prepare for the inevitable Civil War.

Live free or fucking die.

Throw in with the anti-gunners… hang with’em.

Hat-tip to Karl Denninger over at The Market Ticker for the heads-up on the latest spinless shit-hole company that we not only won’t be doing business with.

“This is a complicated issue, but it boils down to a simple belief: Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create.”
– Quote from The Market Ticker

Not only will we never again darken the door of their over-hyped Chinese-junk-depot, we will use every scrap of influence in our possession to materially damage their business.

And no, we ain’t above slander. We’re through playing nice.

“Oh dear… you heard about the chopped up rats they found in the baby-food at the Target last week? How AWEFUL! Folks are saying it’s because Target buys lower grade products to compete with Walmart!”

Makes for a great Coffee-hour conversation starter – no?

Newsflash – the rich Moonbats think themselves too good for your trash Target – while the poor Moonbats shop at Wally-world for the really really really cheap garbage. Who do you think buys your shit fuck-heads?


“Bought your shit.”

Go fuck yourselves forever alongside Amazon, Chipolte and the rest of the liberty hating tossers.

Old Remus: Tipping Points

Posted By: SilverDeth on July 1, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Ol' Remus of The Woodpile Report has an interesting take on the transformational effects of tipping points…

“Tipping points are a release, they’re the ship in a storm that exceeds its recovery roll, the bimetallic strip that pops to its alternate state. They’re a phase change, a sudden liquidity or a sudden solidity, but there’s always a run up. Everybody has a favorite candidate, but after “it” happens it’s all forensics in search of an I Told You So. Actually, “we didn’t see it coming” is a decent defense. Many strings lead to the wall, nobody can say which one will punch through. If tipping points are unknowable, and they are, the effects are even more so. Alas, we must deal with the effects, not the causes. Jimmy Hoffa doesn’t care who killed Jimmy Hoffa, or why. Which, speaking of being prepped for morgue duty, brings us to Joe S. Everyman. The S is for Sheeple.”
– Ol' Remus

Read it all HERE – the ending may surprise you.

Remus is correctly illustrating that “the powers that be” don’t enjoy the command over our society they think they do. These delusions and miscalculations will prove fatal in the coming excitement – for a great many folks… on both sides of the bayonet.

Taking the Week Off

Updates from the various posters are going to be scarce over the next week. The entire clan is gathering to share stories, learn some nifty things the “yoots” picked up from Mosby, hike, enjoy a pig cooked over a spit, (as God intended), and get up to plenty of other chicanery.

While we can’t promise greatness, we do solemnly swear no gopher, badger, skunk, coyote, wolf, porcupine, rabbit, rattlesnake, squirrel or rock chuck shall escape our righteous fury. If it’s not bearing hooves, it dies. There may or may not be a liberal consumption of smooth libations to coincide with the various events, such things however, are other folks’ department.

Of particular note, one of the DETHlings has been up to no good with with the office vinyl printer – and is donating some life-sized foam backed targets for the 1,000 yard challenge. We shall leave their subject matter to the imaginations of our constant readers. There is also talk of terminating the existence of some belligerent watermelons or cantaloupes – depending on the produce prices.

See you in a week.

PS: Fuck you FBI for being the best goons Hitler could have ever wanted. We mean that. Seriously.
PPS: Fuck you NSA, for helping turn the U.S.A. into East-Fucking-Germany circa 1962.
PPPS: Fuck you useless RePubics. You are worthless crony corporatists, and you can go to hell.
PPPPS: Fuck you Moonbats. You are unapologetic tyrants. May you get what you have coming.
PPPPPS: Fuck you Pigs, you unaccountable storm-troopers. May your tanks burn. With you in’em.
PPPPPPS: Fuck you IRS, for being a relentless life-sucking tool used to destroy legitimate political discourse in this country. We go to sleep every night praying to God you all somehow end up at the end of a good stout rope. If we had the clout, we’d parcel post your useless asses to the Jihadists in Syria – with a big red satin bow wrapped around your pencil sharp heads.

May all of you assholes and cunts mentioned above get every single thing you’ve earned in life. To the tenth power.

Bill Quick: "After the Collapse, What?"

Zombies & Shit
Posted By: SilverDeth on June 15, 2014
Catagory: Zombies & Shit

Bill Quick, over at Daily Pundit, asks the important question:

“So here’s a question for those of you who think about these things, and have some knowledge of history, economics, and the like: If we do undergo a financial collapse caused by the dollar losing its reserve currency status, what is out best strategy for recovery after that event?”
– Bill Quick

Read it all HERE.

Be sure to read the whole post, and the comments, which are likely to get “interesting” once SteveF and Nemo start locking ram-horns.

Our take? Hrm… Difficult to foresee. There will be devastating short, mid, and long term consequences naturally. The United States cannot maintain it’s military footing, social welfare system and continue to prop up it’s largely insolvent banking system without the reserve currency to leverage.

SilverDeth Prime, JuanOrez, and Gus will be chiming in with their takes, and we will update the post with their thoughts.

SilverDeth Prime’s Thoughts

When the United States loses – or even willingly surrenders – the reserve currency, (remember we are being “governed” by suicidal idiots), consider it to be the true beginning of the “end” for us as a world power.

Pre-Reserve Loss
– Expect a capital flight of historic proportions to proceed the event. When the rumblings become truly credible, and the powers behind thrones begin to coagulate a dollar alternative, every nation holding significant greenback reserves will flee. The world is not stupid, and the transition will be telegraphed well enough in advance to allow the important players to escape. Maybe even in an orderly fashion.

Near-Term Reserve Loss
– The carry trade will die off.
– Expect a balance of payments crisis.
– The cost of imports will dramatically rise.
– Bank holidays.
– FDIC unable to cover wave of bank failures.
– Federal Reserve charges in to prop up the markets – and fails.
– Failed bond auctions concealed by the federal Reserve buying through 3rd parties.

Medium-Term Reserve Loss
– The quality of goods & services will sharply decrease.
– The cost of goods & services will rise tremendously.
– The government will institute price controls.
– The government will begin seizing private industries.
– National debts and federal expenditures to be paid via printing.
– Multiple municipal bankruptcies.
– Huge cuts of government employees.
– Corporate capital and asset flight.
– General civil unrest/disobedience.
– Tax Revenues collapse.
– Precious metals will be seized or taxed out of private hands.
– Capital controls will be established to thwart wealth flight.
– Service industry crushed.
– Non-essential goods industry crushed, transitions to inferior goods or essentials.
– Historic Unemployment.
– Barter/alternate currency becomes primary medium of exchange.
– Properly leveraged players buy out assets for pennies on the dollar.
– Significant die-off of sick, young and old begins as medical system contracts.

Long-Term Reserve Loss
– Shortages of necessary goods.
– Food lines in large cities.
– Refugees fleeing the U.S.A.
– Critical infrastructure begins failing in certain locals.
– Collapse of the social welfare system.
– Winnowing out of the military.
– Law enforcement bought-out by organized crime.
– Drastic increases in crime as gangsters fill the power vacuum.
– Draconian crackdowns on private interests by the government.
– Scapegoats will be “othered” to divert attention from the crisis.
– Riots/Revolts.
– Disease and privation in certain locals.
– Starvation in certain locals.
– Antibiotics, insulin, and other medication become black-market bonanzas.
– Wealth and affluence will concentrated in state/national capitals.
– Outside of state/federal enclaves, organized crime will be the “law.”
– Outside powers will foment/support the breakaway of states.
– Sick, elderly and infant die-off escalates and then plateaus.
– Infant mortality rate sky-rockets.
– Outlawing possession and transactions with foreign currency.
– Martial law declared.
– Disintegration of the Republic.

A good blue-print for what’s cooking is Argentina, with a mix of Mexico, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The U.S.A. is a huge and diverse region – as a result, expect every Armageddon shade of the rainbow when we lose the reserve currency, (that’s the only thing holding the wheels on the at this point). Criminal enterprise will take over everywhere not explicitly garrisoned by federal forces. In some regions, old hatred will result in outright ethnic cleansing and slaughter. The government weasels and their corporatist allies will use the crisis as an excuse to steal everything not nailed down – and on fire. Finally, like any good failed state, expect our already laughing-sock financial system to decay into a complete mockery of a farcical sham – a currency in name only – business will be done with barter or other, more stable monies.

Good times ahead. How’s that pantry looking?

Well, add Chipotle to the growing list of anti-2nd Amendment organizations we won’t give money to – alongside Buffalo Wild Wings, and Starbucks:

Hat-tip to Jason Howerton at The Blaze:

“Chipotle is asking customers not to bring firearms into its stores after it says gun rights advocates brought military-style assault rifles into one of its restaurants in Texas.”

“The Denver-based company notes that it has traditionally complied with local laws regarding open and concealed firearms.”

“But in a statement Monday, the company said that “the display of firearms in our restaurants has now created an environment that is potentially intimidating or uncomfortable for many of our customers.”
– Jason Howerton

Chipotle is a privately owned company, and they have the right, (on their property), to enact any sort of horseshit regulations they see fit. Likewise, we run a privately owned website – and will use both this podium and our hard won cash to inflict as much material damage on this assholeriffic restaurant chain as we can manage.

So… those looking for an EXCELLENT burrito – as big as your head – at a great price, we’d like to direct you to:

Not liberty-hating assholes like Chipolte

(Not liberty-hating assholes like Chipolte)

PS: Please show us this “right to not be uncomfortable or intimidated” in the United States Constitution – you nutless fucking sissified wankers.

Update: Jack-In-The-Box, Sonic & Chili’s Join the Blooddancing

AWR Hawkins over at Breitbart informed us this afternoon that more eateries are jumping in line to shit upon constitutionally enumerate civil rights:

“On May 30 Brinker International, owner of Chili’s brand, asked that customers no longer openly carry firearms in their restaurants.”

“At the same time, they said they “will continue to follow state and local laws on this issue.”

“Question: What will Chili’s do in states like Arizona or Mississippi where openly carrying handguns is legal? Will they follow those state laws?”

According to CNN Money, Sonic also asked that “customers refrain from bringing guns onto [their] patios or into [their] outdoor dining areas.”
– AWR Hawkins

Read the rest HERE.

Naturally, these businesses can count on patriots avoiding their “citizen disarmament zones” in droves – the same way we’ve been walking away from Buffalo Wild Wings and Chipolte. We here at Deth H.Q. will never again darken the door of these restaurants ever again.

Realistically… their food is rather quite shitty, overpriced and overrated – as Chili’s soggy, wrinkled corn-on-the-cob testifies. Why not go home, save $50.00, and grill some REAL food.

They chose poorly. Fuck’em.

PS: Icing on the cake that some robbers “hit” a Sonic a few days back – amazingly criminals are not deterred by cute little signs. Delicious schadenfreude to savor.

David Warren: Hapless Voters - With Less-than Cheery Commentary

Posted By: SilverDeth on May 31, 2014
Catagory: Rants

(Hat-tip to the Western Rifle Shooter Association for the link.)

David Warren over at Essays in Idleness has an interesting take on some of the recent “protest” elections, from Rob Ford to the recent wave taking the EU by storm:

“There is, so to say, good news and bad news for democratic European Unionists. The good news is that, for the first time, voter turnout actually increased from the previous election to the European Parliament. Just over 43 percent of the eligible bothered to vote, up 1/10th of 1 percent. The bad news is that so many of these voters selected parties devoted to the destruction of as much of the European Union as possible.”

“We are laughing, up here in the High Doganate. Or rather, no, we are not laughing, it is all a pose. Still, there is a glint of recognition, gleeful in its own way. The voters, especially in England and France — the pioneer “Nation States” from the later Middle Ages — appear to have been motivated by something akin to the feist that came over the municipal electorate in the Greater Parkdale Area, the last time we voted. That was when we chose the notorious drunkard and drug addict, Rob Ford, to be our mayor. As polls since have repeatedly confirmed, we knew what we were doing. We had a task for him. It was to destroy as much of the vast municipal bureaucracy as possible. Our instruction was: “Keep smashing everything you see until they take you away.” Finesse would not be required, and the licker and crack might be an advantage.”

“One may love “the people,” without being especially impressed by them. They are stupid, but as the stopped clock, there are moments when they are stupidly correct. These are very brief moments, but let us enjoy them while we can.”
– David Warren

Read everything HERE.

As we’ve been saying for the last twelve years – don’t scoot back and “let it burn.”

HELP the mother-fucker burn.

Our advice: Before casting any ballot, ask yourself the following question: 
“Who is the most singularly destructive figure I can vote for?”

Think logically. Which person, placed in any given office, is going to inflict the greatest lasting harm on the state and all of it’s many tentacles? Consider all options. A quick examination should make it pretty clear which statist bastard, (of the gaggle running), is going to abuse, misuse, shit-on and materially destroy the mandate of their office.

Don’t get tied up in your “ideals” or silly wedge-issues. The goal is to help the burning platform collapse faster. See to your needs, undermine every institution in your sphere of influence, and gleefully elect your worst nightmare. That done, laugh, sit back and enjoy the fireworks before things truly and epically come asunder.

What’s that constant readers? “This is a rather nihilistic world-view?” We reply with our own question – Do you expect anything OTHER than failure from our floundering political system? Do you suppose we are going to “magically” vote and be “saved” at zero hour by some white knight on a charging stallion?

(Please, pardon us a moment, while we enjoy a restrained chuckle at your expense – nothing personal.)

Ahem, thanks for that. Now that we’ve regained our composure… we will extrapolate…

There is no benighted crusader who is going to gallop over the hill and save you all. (Assuming your Paladin were not a wholly mythological construct), a quarter of the people will blindly love this “infallible hero” while a quarter of the people will consider him the Anti-Christ incarnate – and oppose this farcical construct with every fiber of their being. Meanwhile, two-quarters of the people will be too wrapped up in the mediocrity of their miserable little lives to even bother with any of it.

The truth is, America is a horrifically Balkanized society, split by irreconcilable world views – which can only be solved by one faction wiping the other off the planet. There is no peaceful resolution in this sticky morass – those expecting otherwise are requesting the impossible. The statist and the liberty-minded cannot tolerate the presence of one another – anymore than ice and fire can co-mingle. One will invariably overwhelm and destroy the weaker.

Some folks have moved on to the acceptance phase of grief – others wave their RepubloCrat, Occupy and Tea-party signs with a fury reserved for the mad – still locked firmly in denial about the darkness lurking over the horizon…

We can sympathize with the notion, given the alternative (read: Reality). It’s very cute some deluded souls still think relief will come from fanciful heroes or uselessly gamed elections – endearing… in a “what-the-fuck-is-wrong-with-you-kinda-way.” Wish in one hand, shit in the other, and report back on which has more weight – happy daydreams and planting one’s skull in the sand won’t change what has to be done. What is GOING TO BE DONE.

America is, (for all intents and purposes), Yugoslavia circa 1988 – and a fair portion of the population is a walking civil war looking for a justification. A good spark is all that’s needed – and if it takes too long, one side or the other will engineer one, just as the founders did during the revolution. Pretext in hand, folks will get about the one business we Americans excel at above all others – killing one another.

The government knows what’s cooking, and they think themselves prepared for what they’ve helped kick up – what with their cute little tanks, ammunition dumps and be-speckled NOAA weathermen hamfisting sub-machine guns. Word of advice, from folks here on the ground stewing in the building rage – just leave. Jump on your little planes, and fly into the sunset. Now. That won’t stop the impending unpleasantness, but it might result in a few less defenestrations.

Nothing the overlords have stockpiled – not even their nukes – will stop what’s been carefully cultivated and provoked for the last half century. They think otherwise. They’re wrong – and will pay for that hubris with their dearest blood. The locust swarm, once roused will first consume the government and its minions – and then turn on itself with a fury that will shake the pillars of heaven itself. No war this world has seen will be more horrible and kill so many as what’s coming to the U.S.A.

Even some folks recognizing the storm clouds harbor tragic misconceptions… for example:

Many patriots imagine they will make a short bloody work of the statists and their supporters, hang the leftovers high, re-establish the Constitution and wrap themselves in the American flag – all the while humming a Lee Greenwood ditty.

That’s nice. But the razor cuts both ways….

Much of the government faction – and their spittle-licked minions – believe their armies, surveillance-state, terminator-drones and technological terror toys will quickly sweep away the opposition and usher in a glorious utopia built from the skulls of the bourgeois.

Both sides are factually incorrect. Folks are going to rip themselves and this nation into itty-bitty pieces, and then those pieces will continue to tear themselves apart for decades. Nobody walks from this unscathed, and if there is even enough left of one faction to establish control, (we doubt this very much), it will only be due to the thoroughness with which they exterminated everyone and anything opposed to them.

To brutally simplify – what’s left afterwards won’t be pretty. No… we don’t see a way to stop it. When immovable objects intersect with unstoppable forces, it’s human nature to rend societies apart. Welcome to the human condition. We’ve done it innumerable times in the past, and we’ll keep dong it until we exterminate ourselves. Accept our nature and plan accordingly.

You can’t fix the system – or stop it before it plunges into a canyon constant readers. Inertia has the wheel now, and the breaks have been shot for fifty years – or more. The most you can do is stoke the boiler for all you’re worth – help ignite the biggest Goddamned fireball imaginable on the way down. The more destroyed the train is before impact, the better for all parties involved in what comes after. The skeletal wreckage of the government will just be one more horrible faction amongst many that will need to be dealt with – better to kill it now.

Prepare, train, learn, get tribe and adapt – or die.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Food Up 22% - Feds Blame Man-Made Drought

Posted By: SilverDeth on May 28, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Hat-Tip to Bill Quick at Daily Pundit:

According to Chriss Street over at the American Thinker, food is set to jolt another 22% this year:

In April of 2008, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) warned that rising food prices could have terrible consequences for the world, including the risk of war. IMF Managing Director Dominque Strauss-Kahn called for action to keep inflation in check: “Food prices, if they go on like they are doing today” … “the consequences will be terrible,”… “Hundreds of thousands of people will be starving” … “(leading) to disruption of the economic environment,”especially for developing nations where the bulk of their income is spent on the bare necessities for survival. Strauss-Hahn emphasized food inflation could destroy 10 years of development progress and spark social unrest: “As we know, learning from the past, those kind of questions sometimes end in war.”
– Chriss Street

Read the rest HERE.

Oh no Quantitative Easing is no big deal… no way a massive devaluation of our currency would raise the cost of food… buy the narrative sheeple… the price explosions are just the result of a (man-madedrought in California… (never mind that this “explanation” is a bald-faced lie and one region in the throws of a manufactured crisis would not have such a far-flung impact).

We here at Deth H.Q. think us Americans ought go along with the Federal Reserve’s fib, (for once). Let’s assume we’re paying idiot prices at the supermarket due to the wholly human-fabricated “drought” in California – which we need not remind folks was created whole cloth to appease the screwball animal liberation twats and the Luddite Eco-Marxists.

Ok fine… we’ll eat your narrative Fedgoons…. just this once.

Since we’ve identified the “problem,” – as determined by the “reasonable omnipresent authority figures in our government” – we need to effect a remedy.

Perhaps we need to get the rope and start hanging the folks responsible for starving our children…

Pretexts suddenly aren’t so “fun…” are they now statists…

…the assholes trying to force their religion down our throats start ACTING like it…

To wit:

“President Obama racked up close to $3 million in flight costs this year on two trips he billed as business but spent playing golf.”
– Headline, the London Daily Mail, April 30th, 2014.

“The Obama administration, in a massive, new report on the dangers of climate change, warns that global warming is already harming Americans and that conditions will worsen significantly if carbon emissions aren’t reduced.”
– The Washington Examiner, today.

(Hat-tip Ed Driscoll, at Instapundit).

Ever notice how all these ridiculous eco-Marxist laws are only ever for the serfs? None of the elite appear all that willing to surrender their lavish lifestyles for the good of dear sweet mother earth. Why… it’s almost as if these finger-in-light-socket-stupid regulations have zero to do with “protecting the environment” and everything to do with “controlling the unclean masses.”

Huh. Fancy that. As someone once said… “Green is the new Red.”

So then… again we must turn to civil disobedience – you Prog-Nazi’s want us to follow your silly EPA regulations?

Come and fucking make us cum-stains. If you aren’t willing to kill, send others to get killed, or be killed yourself over your idiot green-nanny-bullshit, then shut the hell up, and mind your Goddamned business. You want to sandpaper-off your asshole with recycled toilet paper? We don’t give two-fucks – go file that son-of-a-bitch off. Try and force your idiot sadomasochism on the rest of us, and we’re going to have issues.

You have no mandate left. None. ZERO. You have no moral authority to tell ANYONE what to do anymore – you pissed it all away. Gone, and fuck-you-very-much. You no longer GET willful compliance with your despotic paper-blizzard. You’re reduced to what you can compel at the barrel of a gun. So come fucking try already.

PS: We mix phosphates into our dishwasher soap so that it works.
PPS: We burned a tire for Earth Day. The kids helped. They thought it great fun.
PPPS: We deliberately run the dishwasher/washer extra times – for the pure spite of it.
PPPPS: We leave our vehicles running in the winter to warm them up.
PPPPPS: We disabled our smart meter, and shot it to pieces.
PPPPPPS: We added 3 Five-Gallon flush toilets – we still double flush, cause fuck you.
PPPPPPPS: We did the same thing to the dog-vomit shower-head your fuck-up-minions installed without our permission when they broke into our home to attach the smart meter – And we replaced it with a luxury model from Mexico – about the size of a pie-plate. (And it’s fucking GLORIOUS).

Ooooh does that make your moonbat skins crawl? Whatcha gonna do about it creeps? Write an angry letter to the editor? Post a scathing article on the Huff-n-Puff? Cry on the KOS-kiddie’s forums?

Oh, our-stars-and-garters, what-ever-the-fuck-shall-we-do in the face of such intractable opposition!!!!

Ahhhhh that’s right! We’re gonna laugh in your face and fucking ignore your asses – that’s what we’ll do. We won’t stop ridiculing you till we’re dead. Not a second before. And so we’re all clear – we’ll not be going into the good night all quiet-like.

Every now and again, we need to yank the podium away from the parental units, (and other associated elders), and remind the world that we are in fact, a website largely dedicated to Video Games. Going 100% hell-bent-for-leather all the time just is not healthy, despite what our Uncle and Sister, currently standing watch at the Bundy Ranch, might have you believe.

It’s then we notice something like this: 
Boycott Turtle Rock Studios – by SteveF of Daily Pundit.

For a quick recap, Josh Olin, a community manager for Turtle Rock Gaming Studios pointed out – correctly – that the Kabuki Theater currently revolving around Donald Sterling is nothing short of “a-mockery-of-a-farce-of-a-sham,” (to paraphrase a very “squicky” movie icon). The response from the gun-shy ninnies over at Turtle Rock, (to Olin’s act of constitutionally protected free speech), was to tank his ass faster than Sam Worthington’s acting career.

Naturally, we felt the need to send a rebuttal to the company’s resident shirking-violets, using the vetted parlance mandated by “legal:”

Dear Management and H.R. of Turtle Rock Gaming Studios – RE: The termination of Josh Olin

As a collection of libertarians, we believe it is your right to fire Josh Olin for absolutely specious reasons. This is your privilege as a holder of private property in the United States.

That said, it is our right to use our podium to detour our followers from buying your products. We plan to review your future games honestly, dispassionately, and grant said products the highly negative reviews they most certainly deserve. You see we too can use our own private property in a manner that we feel is just and proper.

Yes, we are aware the 2000 or so people we reach weekly is a small drop in the bucket compared to your overall-audience base – and the material damage inflicted on your company will be miniscule from any useful perspective.

That said, Rome didn’t fall over night. It collapsed from a thousand different small acts of bad-faith. You’ve burned a very small bridge. It’s easy for Cesar to scoff at such a triviality. But every slight adds up over time.

Blizzard was once loved too. They didn’t destroy the community’s good-will instantly.Remember that.

Dear Media Whores, in Regards to Cliven Bundy

Time's Up
Posted By: SilverDeth on April 25, 2014
Catagory: Time's Up

Good afternoon members of the mainstream media, hack journalists, propagandists and other assorted government boot-lickers. We here at DETH H.Q. would just like to take a moment to remind you that we give all accusations of racism made by FedGovCo, (and their willing co-conspirators), every ounce of consideration they’re entitled to.

Which consequently occupies a strata lodged betwixt dog-piss and lukewarm vomit.

The fact is, the assholes defending President Drone-kill, (and his circle of effeminate wankers), have degraded and shit-upon the word “racist” so frequently – and with such fury – that the title is effectively meaningless. The term “racist” is apparently now a synonym for “likes small government,” and encapsulates roughly one-third of the U.S. population.

The question isn’t, “When should we laugh in their fucking moonbat faces?” but, “Why haven’t we been doing so already?” The fact that anyone in this day and age – let alone some allegedly “savvy” media personalities, (who should damn well know better from personal experience) – would get the least bit wobbly over a charge of “WWWWWAAAAAACISSSSTTTTTT!” is beyond ludicrous.

Let us not forget how Sauron’s minions dearly love crafting a narrative…

The Federal Goons and their apparatchiks initially declared Cliven Bundy “unclean” by associating him with “lawbreaking.” He was “untouchable” for not paying his fair share – being little more than an opportunistic “freeloader.” They desperately wanted to paint him as a hypocrite lining his pockets. Unfortunately, that particular line of agitprop flew like a cinder block. After all, the United States Federal Government is completely lawless – the Bundy’s are merely following the pristine example set by their “betters” in Mordor.

So, not ones to let a little thing like “Abysmal Failure” deter them, we now get to watch the Government’s latest attempt at “shaving-the-onion.” Pardon us if we can’t suppress our “Yawn”. The only surprising part of this laughingly predictable skit is that they even bothered to fixate on the accusations of “racism” before manufacturing the child-pornography charges. (We’re giving even odds those will be coming next).

One last bit of advice for patriots to ruminate on – this entire escapade was never about “THE BUNDY FAMILY.” It was in response to the tyrannical overreach of federal government. Cliven Bundy is just an old guy with a ranch who was lucky in his timing and placement. He’s not the focus here. The idea of defiance in the face of despotism, that’s what folks are ready to die and kill for. Bundy is a pretext – the right excuse at the right moment to stand up forcefully to tyrants. This is about a notion. A concept. It transcends simple fallible flesh. Which is why so many are prepared to pay the ultimate price to nurture it.

Before we go, we’d like to mention that, in the rather likely event of Civil War, the “William Jefferson Clinton Rules of Engagement,” (here-after referred to as The WJCRoE), are going to be in full effect – likely on both sides. Mull the ramifications of that over while you “propagandists-with-bi-lines” drift quietly off to sleep this evening.

Tweaking the Statist's Noses

Posted By: SilverDeth on March 25, 2014
Catagory: Rants

We’ve noticed lately that the tyrants infesting the United States Media, Public Education Indoctrination and the Federal Government have been particularly “twerked” by the writings of Ayn Rand. It would seem nothing grinds the gears of big government hive-minds like the prospect of a little self sufficiency – and Rand’s brand of objectivism is the equivalent of garlic and sunlight to Prog-Nazi vampires. In response to this, the statists have been going out of their way to piss, moan and generally shit upon her many works – even attempting to deconstruct them with a series of video games (or so we’ve been informed).

How precious. Tyrants are so cute when they call out their enemies. (We use “cute” in the same way one of our dear relatives references the term seconds before he blasts “cute” gophers into critter-kibble with hollow points).

Well, since nothing makes our day faster than watching collectivists on the left and right squirm in their Che Guevara(TM) Underoos, we’ll give the prophetess from the past a bit of air time:

“Instead of being a protector of man’s rights, the government is becoming their most dangerous violator; instead of guarding freedom, the government is establishing slavery; instead of protecting men from the initiators of physical force, the government is initiating physical force and coercion in any manner and issue it pleases; instead of serving as the instrument of objectivity in human relationships, the government is creating a deadly, subterranean reign of uncertainty and fear, by means of nonobjective laws whose interpretation is left to the arbitrary decisions of random bureaucrats; instead of protecting men from injury by whim, the government is arrogating to itself the power of unlimited whim—so that we are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.”
– Ayn Rand

Goddamn, nothing makes that broad more sexy than having some over-educated leftist fucknode tell us she’s “irrelevant.”

Someone with a better wit than ours once said, “Arguing with a Statist is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter how badly you destroy them, they simply knock over the pieces, shit on the board, puff their chest and prance around like they’ve won.”

We could simply not put it better.

Worthless Human Garbage RePubicans Slitting Own Throats - Good

Posted By: SilverDeth on February 25, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit brought the yammering warblings of RePubican establishment minion Jazz Shaw to our attention:

Primary challenger to Pat Roberts found to have some curious Facebook postings

In the Article, (which we won’t give the respect of partially re-posting), Mr. Shaw has his cute little GOP Elephant Emblazoned Underoos(TM) twisted into a knot over Dr. Milton Wolf – a primary challenger who’s trying to unseat the corrupt Pat Roberts.

The GOP’s minions – such as Hot Air, The Weekly Standard and the Fox News Talking Heads – are out in full force, dredging up infantile and irrelevant shit against anyone challenging their feckless and impotent leadership. It’s quite sickening to watch, and you’d think they would learn from the MASSIVE number of folks who simply stayed home last election rather than choke down the shit-sandwich that was Willard Fillmore Romneycare.

The Republican Party’s demise will be a self inflicted gunshot to the head. Good riddance.Perhaps whatever rises to replace them will be a reasonable force supporting constitutional governance. (Hahahahahaha… who are we kidding… bwhahahahahah ehehehe hohohoho haha.)

We will let the good Dr. close this one, as only he can:

“Nothing they do in any particular race is as important as not pissing off the base, which is very unhappy with them and on the verge of staying home/starting a third party. I feel like the GOP establishment doesn’t understand this, though you’d think the 2012 post-mortems would have informed them.”
– Glenn Reynolds

They don’t give a shit – even if they lose disastrously – they’ll simply pick up sweet jobs as lobbyists or consultants once they’re tossed screaming out of office. The GOP is too interested in lining up to the slop trough along with the other statists to be bothered with who ULTIMATELY DRIVES THE TITANIC INTO THE ICEBERG – just so long as a few of them still have a chair in first class.

FCC to Insert "Government Researchers" To Monitor U.S. Media

Posted By: SilverDeth on February 21, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Welcome to Germany circa 1931 peasants:

Michael Krieger at Liberty Blitzkrieg caught wind of our federal taskmasters preparing to insert their censors minions into the major media outfits:

“Incredibly, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is set to roll out something called the Critical Information Needs study, which will embed government “researchers” into media organizations around the nation to make sure they are doing their job properly.”

“No this isn’t “conspiracy theory.” It is so real, and represents such a threat to the First Amendment, that a current FCC commissioner, Ajit Pai, recently wrote an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal, warning Americans of this scheme. He writes:”

“News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.”

“But everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.”

“Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.”

“The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about “the process by which stories are selected” and how often stations cover “critical information needs,” along with “perceived station bias” and “perceived responsiveness to undeserved populations.”

“I have no idea what country I am living in at this point.”
– Michael Krieger

Please read his entire piece HERE.

To put a fine point on it Michael, we are living in a soft tyranny, well on it’s way to becoming a full blown Police State. The very tail-end of the “soft” part to be precise.

Our government, to date is:
– Stockpiling enough munitions to fight an Iraq scale conflict – for *years*.
– Creating large dumps of medicine, food and other emergency provisions.
– Spying on every single shred of electronic data American citizens read or create.
– Collecting all of our phone and internet conversations, sifting through them, and storing them.
– Arming every single Federal Agency with paramilitary units.
– Purging the military of “Old Guard” officers that might refuse to carry out certain orders.
– Engaging in a massive disinformation campaign directed at the new military recruits.
– Arming every State and Local Police Force with paramilitary units.
– Using federal funds to arm Police Departments with truly battle-worthy combat gear.
– Using federal funds to arm Police Departments with tanks and other light attack vehicles.
– Establishing a massive surveillance network from sea to shining sea.
– Enabling the massive proliferation of areal drones across the nation.
– Directing enormous amounts of demonizing propaganda at liberty loving American citizens.
– Using federal funds to grant Local and State Police top flight comm. surveillance gear.
– Training State, Local, and Federal Law Enforcement to fight the American citizenry.
– Executive orders enabling a total take over of the nation’s infrastructure in an emergency.
– Using the TSA to control and screen all forms of public and private transportation.
– Mandating private motor vehicles have tracking systems installed.
– Using the IRS and other Federal Agencies to attack and destroy legitimate political opposition.
– Illegally compiling lists of armed citizens.
– Creating huge swaths of landmass where there is effectively no protection against unlawful search and seizure.

And now…

– Installing “government monitors” into newsrooms across the nation.

You do see where this is going… right Michael?

It does not take a doctorate in theoretical physics to understand what our Kings and Queens intend from all of this battle-space preparation. In fact, they are so arrogant – and think us serfs so stupid – they go about enslaving us in open daylight, with all of the brazen indifference of French Nobility.

We recommend you start getting your shit together now Michael. Because THIS is coming here eventually.

Coming soon to the USA

Brandon Smith: Non-Participation/Decentralization - Revolt Primers

Time's Up
Posted By: SilverDeth on February 14, 2014
Catagory: Time's Up

Brandon Smith over at Alt-Markets has some good tips on what patriots should be up to while they wait for the opportunity to start decorating street-lights with their favorite ornamentation:

The Non-Participation Principle is best summarized like this:

When facing a corrupt system, provide for yourself and your community those necessities that the system cannot or will not. Become independent from establishment-controlled paradigms. If you and your community do this, the system will have one of two choices:

1) Admit that you do not need them anymore and fade into the fog of history, OR…

2) Reveal its tyrannical nature in full and attempt to force you back into dependence.

In either case, you win. You have taken proactive measures to remove yourself as a cog in the machine. The machine can then of course try to demonize you, or attack you, but ultimately, they will attack from a place of social and moral weakness, and you will defend from a position of logistical and moral strength.

Stop waiting for the system to change, or collapse. Change the way YOU live and survive. Build your own localized systems and walk away.
– Brandon Smith

Read his entire missive HERE.

Sounds like familiar advice. Don’t sit back, and utter the phrase “Let it burn.”

Get off your ass and “Help it burn!”

Provide for you and your community’s needs outside the system’s claws. Force their hand. Make them don the jackboots. Then you’re justified in killing them for the trouble.

Sure, you might die in the fracas. So fucking what? Everybody dies. Not everybody gets the honor of doing so while using their hot and empty AR as a baseball-bat against the remains of a Mall-ninja stack charging into their home.

Just some things to ruminate on.

PS: We have it on very good authority that a judicious application of fire is quite efficacious in relation to the problem of nylon-web-gear-encrusted-wanna-be-stormtroopers.

Bill Quick Channels his Inner Karl Denninger

Posted By: SilverDeth on February 5, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Bill Quick, over at Daily Pundit smells something burning…

“In fact, the entire “stock bull market” has been entirely supported by vast injections of financial crack pounded directly into the veins of the economy via the banking system. But as any good drug addict knows, more and more of the Good Stuff is required to achieve the same effect, and eventually you reach a point where the amount of High Octane necessary to maintain the effect is enough to kill the addict.”
– Bill Quick

Read all of it HERE.

Karl Denninger has been saying the same thing for years, and we can’t find a good reason to argue with either of these gentlemen. Eventually, the Crystal Meth used to juice the lie – which is “The American Financial System” – is going to prove fatal.

There is no argument about “if” the economy blows up anymore. “If’s” sitting dead in a forgotten closet at the Federal Reserve Building – covered in cobwebs and crumbling to dust. The real argument is simple a matter of “when.”

“But why!” asks the casual reader. “Why not simply stop the substance abuse!”

Fair question – allow us to elaborate.

As Hunter S. Thompson would attest, (were the magnificent bastard still breathing), “quitting” a serious drug “hobby” is not something done lightly – especially when the user has reached a point where ludicrous quantities of narcotics are required to provoke the high. (As Mr. Quick points out in his piece).

So how does this apply to America?

The United States is so far down the rabbit hole with regards to their “addiction” to fiscal methamphetamine that quitting will be just as fatal to our economy as continuing on till its heart explodes from overdose.

There is no easing slowly off… The TBtF crowd, (read: The Addicts), will not ALLOW the fed to taper… Every time Uncle Sam threatens to ease off the dosage… the market – deliberately – crashes harder than John Belushi the day after free speedball night out at Chateau Marmont. Tis the addicts in total control of the supply now.

We’re truly and wholly fucked.

Have a great evening.

Money Moves While Fools Dance

Market Watch
Posted By: Gus on January 28, 2014
Catagory: Market Watch

A degree in Behavioral Studies like many other Sociology programs is often times tailored toward addiction, family dynamics, and general mental health. Surprisingly to some, I found it most fascinating the relevance social behavior has in economics.  It may just be the most important of all studies with which to dissect markets, trends, and exchange. It is after all supposedly the willing  interaction between two or more entities to exchange goods and services (in a real free market).  Demand is a funny thing though. It’s relevance is in the eye of the beholder which is subject to whims and social trends. More importantly, the question “What has Value?” has social inputs. Those inputs can be influenced and controlled. A good article on hedge talks some about this…

Game theory is a bridge between hot-blooded social languages like dancing and cold-blooded formal languages like mathematics. Game theory is an abstraction of dynamic social interactions. Because it’s an abstraction, game theory usefully adopts some of the formal grammar of mathematics, which remains the most efficient way to represent theory regardless of what the theory is about. But game theory has no meaning or usefulness outside of a social setting. Like the tango, game theory takes two. Also like the tango, game theory is all about movement, the fluid movement of separate individuals who are bound up with each other in a system of mutual expectations and individual goals. Put it all together and game theory uses some basic mathematical concepts to organize our thinking about dynamic and strategic behaviors that have their origins in our social animal brains and Murdock’s List. It’s a powerful tool kit.

Some people have an intuitive ability to “speak” game theory fluently. These are geniuses like Dick Clark who can translate between the language of the social animal and the language of the self-aware brain effortlessly, and make an enormous fortune in the process. Clark recognized the trends, nuances, and idioms of popular culture just as surely as he recognized the economic formulas behind radio and television syndication. Was he a brilliant artist? Nope. Couldn’t dance, sing, or act. But he spoke the language of performers and somehow figured out how to communicate that primal grammar to Middle America in a way that felt “safe”. It seems weird today, as we are immersed in a popular culture of youth, but “youth culture” (a phrase coined by Paul Anka in reference to Dick Clark) didn’t exist before American Bandstand. As much as anyone over the past 50 years, from the Beatles to Elvis Presley to any performer you want to name … Dick Clark was responsible for the modern landscape of how the languages of music and dance are communicated in a commercially lucrative fashion. His secret (other than a bizarrely youthful face)? Clark understood the Common  Knowledge Game.

Clark didn’t poll America to determine their taste in music. He told them their taste in music … not directly, but by creating common knowledge — ideas that a crowd believes that the crowd believes. With the American Bandstand group dance staging and scripted questions, Clark allowed the TV audience to see a crowd of attractive young people act as if the music were popular. This is all it takes.Clark didn’t have to force his preferred choice of popular culture on his audience like some centrally-planned Ministry of Culture. The TV audience chose it all on their own, thinking all along it was their choice! This is the power of the Emperor’s New Clothes. This is the power of the sitcom laugh track and the live studio audience. This is the power of public coronations and executions. This is the power of Tahrir Square and Tiananmen Square. This is the power of the crowd seeing the crowd, and it is the most potent force in the social world.

It’s certainly the most potent force in the social world of markets, and every Central Banker today is playing the Common Knowledge Game just as hard as Dick Clark ever did.


How? How is this relevant to markets and central banks? If you have even remotely taken a look at the Federal Reserve’s attempt to be more “transparent” you will see what really is transpiring here. Is it openness or another social input?

How is this the Common Knowledge Game? Since August 2012 we have watched the markets dance to Draghi’s tune. If you don’t know by now that Draghi’s words move the market crowd, then you’re an idiot. But you’re not an idiot. And neither is any one of the hundreds of thousands of people reading the WSJ headline. And neither is Draghi. We are told by the WSJ that Draghi’s words today have a good beat and you can dance to it. So we do. We dance, just like we’ve been trained to do by watching this show 30 times before.

As a result, Italy and Spain’s equity and credit markets outperformed Germany’s by a mile after Draghi’s signal … which was exactly the intended effect(Spain is now borrowing money at the cheapest rate in the euro era!) and exactly why it is so difficult to be a macro Value investor today. All of your fundamental indicators that show (correctly) that Italy and Spain are ridiculously overvalued at current prices relative to, say, Germany don’t matter in the least. Or rather, they matter, but they evaporate like dew when the Draghi sun shines at a press conference.

Of course, this sort of challenge to the Narrative of Central Bank Omnipotence could not go unaddressed, and sure enough by 7 pm last Friday you had a WSJ article by none other than Jon Hilsenrath, the Common Knowledge spokesman for the Fed, titled “Fed Unlikely to Alter Course After Jobs Report.” Over the weekend and on Monday you had at least three Fed Governors come out with similar statements, that there was no confusion or complication imposed by the jobs report. Nothing to see here folks, move along. None of these Powers That Be are taking issue with whether or not the Friday jobs report was bad news … the only thing that matters is how this news impacts the common knowledge structure that generates their power to control market outcomes. That’s the threat that must be squelched. This is what Bernanke meant when he talked about using communications as a policy tool, and this is what Yellen (and Draghi and Abe and everyone else in the club) will continue to do … use public statements to play the Common Knowledge Game and drive market outcomes by proxy.

I can sleep well at night if you get nothing else out of Epsilon Theory beyond the recognition that a) you are being played, and b) there are rules and logic to how you are being playedBut I’d also like to demonstrate that c) it’s entirely rational to play along (to a point), and d) you can be a player, too.

It can be entirely rational to act as if the Emperor is wearing a beautiful set of clothes. In fact, when you’re caught in a Common Knowledge Game others will look at you askance if you act publicly according to the evidence of your own eyes rather than the evidence of the crowd watching the crowd. But you need to recognize that’s what you’re doing. It’s critically important to avoid internalizing your behavior, falling into what Kant called a “dogmatic slumber”, believing in your heart of hearts that the Emperor truly looks marvelous.

The moment you give yourself over to the Dick Clarks of the world who create common knowledge, the moment you abdicate your keenly evolved human abilities of self-awareness and other-evaluation … that’s the moment you put yourself at the most risk. Because the game will change. Even if the external conditions of the world today are exactly the same as the external conditions of the world yesterday, a change in the internal conditions of the other game-players, whether it’s a queen bee like Draghi or a set of worker bees like us, can change your best move.

Game theory is all about playing the player, not the cards. That’s not a replacement for understanding the fundamentals and the math of drawing this card or that, but it sure is a complementary skill set. If you want to win.


You see demand is perception. With enough inputs and  influence perception can change and be controlled. So let the rest of the muppets dance while you watch the “real” market. Focus on fundamentals and let markets play their games. Follow the money. You may not have the resources but you can probably guess who does. What are they doing with their money? Our parents were wrong, don’t do as they say do as they do. Here, lets see if the big wigs think the market is bullish. Remember its not what they tell their customers but what they do for themselves…..

But Dimon’s pay day is even more outrageous than first considered. That’s because Dimon wasn’t awarded stock options or a riskier stock bonus called stock appreciation rights, or SARs. Instead, he was granted nothing but restricted stock. It was the first time in 10 years J.P. Morgan JPM -1.44%   didn’t award stock options or SARs.

By their nature, stock options and SARs require a company’s stock performance to eitherincrease or hold value for the bonuses to be worth significant amounts. The downside, however, is much greater too. Restricted stock is less likely to lose value. It’s a less-risky bet.

So, why does this matter? The decision to pay Dimon entirely in restricted stock suggests that expectations at the bank are that the stock’s best days could be behind it, according to John Olagues, who not only brought this to my attention, but did some analysis on just how significant this switch in stock grants is.

By way of example, a top executive could receive either employee stock options worth $6 million on 400,000 shares (the ESOs are worth 30% of stock price at the time of the grant using a Black-Scholes model, according to Olagues) or $6 million via 125,000 in restricted stock. The stock is trading at $50 at the time of the grant. Three years later, here are Olagues’ scenarios:

Assume the stock price is unchanged: This makes the ESOs worth about $4.5 million and the restricted stock worth about $6 million. Assume the stock is down 10% and trading at $45. This makes the ESOs worth about $3.2 million with the restricted stock equal to about $5.4 million. Assume that the stock is down 25% and trading at $37.50. This makes the ESOs worth about $1.7 million with the restricted stock worth about $4.5 million.

And while we’ve singled out Dimon, he’s not the only executive to suddenly shift strategies. As Olagues notes, Morgan Stanley MS -0.43%   announced Jan. 23 that CEO James Gorman received 155,207 restricted shares worth about $5 million at grant. Last year Gorman was granted about 440,000 stock options valued at $3.3 million.

Nor is this shift limited to Wall Street. Again, Olagues found that Target Corp. TGT +0.37% handed out stock options to top executives on the second Wednesday of January for the last 10 years. This year the company didn’t hand out any on Jan. 8, just small amounts of restricted stock.

Likewise, Intel Corp. INTC +0.02%  handed out restricted stock according to a filing made yesterday.

Smith: The USA Is Plunging Into Kafka's Nightmare

Posted By: SilverDeth on January 17, 2014
Catagory: Rants

Hat Tip to Zero Hedge:

Brandon Smith of the Alt-Market Blog explains “Why it CAN happen here” and how “WE are no different” than anyone else:

There is a certain level of dishonesty in the common study of history. We look back at the tyrannies of the past, the monstrous governments, the devastating wars and the unimaginable crimes, and we wonder how it could have been possible. How could the people of that particular generation let such atrocities come to pass? Why didn’t they do something? Why didn’t they protest? Why didn’t they fight back?

We wonder all of this as we absorb the lists of dates, names and actions in books written by other men who memorized other lists of dates, names and actions. We are taught to study and wonder without ever actually applying the lessons of the past to the developments of today. We are conditioned to assert our own narrow spin on yesterday, instead of placing ourselves in the shoes of our ancestors or recognizing that their struggles remain our struggles. The modern method of viewing history detaches us from it, making it seem distant, alien or surreal.

Perhaps many societies fail to prepare or act in the face of tyranny because they had forgotten their own histories, making the demise of their culture appear so schizophrenic they would not believe what their eyes were telling them.

Often, the only way to grasp the more complete truth of the present is to examine it through the lens of the absurd. Sadly, our Nation, our culture and most of the world around us have become so backward, ugly, feeble and twisted that the only adequate comparison is to the nightmares of surrealists.

He’s correct of course. All of that “American Exceptionalism” trash we were fed was a load of jingoistic horseshit. When it comes down to brass tacks, most Americans are so detached and distracted that the surrealistic erosion of our liberty continues unnoticed. Our rights and freedoms are being massacred to the sound of crickets chirping in the night.

Our constant readers might be tempted to ask…. “Why is that?”

Our answer, is, like the issue, complicated. By all accounts, based on the usurpations and acceleration of the tyranny, we should already be deep into a civil war. From any prudent perspective, our financial system should have years ago collapsed into ruin. It’s seems unimaginable given the scope of the catastrophe nothing has come unhinged.

Yet… here we are – sitting in stunned silence. Gobsmacked by the depth of how truly and irrevocably fucked the entire system is. We, as a collective, don’t act, we just stare blankly into the distance. And we shall attempt to explain WHY.

Some folks, don’t currently, (and never did), give two shits about anything outside the scope of their immediate well being. They are consumed by the distraction of the moment. They only care about themselves and their immediate family, and of things impacting them THIS EXACT SECOND. Everything pales compared to the latest and greatest escape. They won’t bother with “later” or anything beyond near-term planning.

Others are barely treading water, and lack the time or energy to pay attention. Such individuals are so overworked and stressed that just maintaining their existence consumes the entire day. When a person is one missed paycheck away from a disaster, they have a difficult time fussing with NSA spying or Social Security collapsing ten years down the path.

There is a large group of individuals who are stupefied by the scope of behemoth. They believe themselves insignificant, and are so overwhelmed by the monstrosity lumbering along, eating all in it’s path, that dealing with it in any shape is quote beyond their imagination. They understand how bad things are, but can’t imagine themselves as capable of making any sort of difference. Therefore, they “move on” to other, smaller things which might stll be controllable.

Finally, you have those who’ve “given up.” Disaffected and downtrodden idealists, once active and awake, but though painful experience, have learned to stop giving a damn about the system. They fought, they protested, they voted, they wrote letters, and burned down the phone lines – to absolutely no lasting impact. They realized the politicians – and the bureaucrats they serve – can’t be bothered to give two shits about them, or their silly little ideals.

These disillusioned souls are then forced to choose one of two paths – either violence, (as this is the only remaining option left to enact true change), or, “flipping the channel,” – tuning out the entire process. Most choose to divorce themselves from the poisonous wreckage of the American Republic – the few that don’t, well… they get to meet the Stasi – up close and personal.

So there we are. Most Americans have just checked out. A people detached to – and unconcerned with – the activities of their “public servants” is destined to be ruled by them.

Don't Drink The Water

Market Watch
Posted By: Gus on January 11, 2014
Catagory: Market Watch

Our general advice here at Deth is “Don’t drink the water”.

Whether it be the cool-aid which drizzles from the mouths of statists or the continued perspiration which permeates from the typical Keynesian’s brow who’s experiment has gone AWOL, the general rule of thumb is don’t drink the water.  This could not be better highlighted than this Friday in which I woke to a series of glorious news articles which again highlighted the need to simply laugh at current economists who force feed positive economic outcomes in which no fundamental data can be “conjured” to support their magic.

Lets start shall we?

You know its bad when regular CNN news journalists explode with surprise at the release of of job numbers and the sheer number of people who have left the workforce. Its hard to make a morning doughnut taste better. However, the look on her face has caused a smile in which I’m having a damn hard time getting rid of. If you don’t care to watch the following link here are some highlights…

“More than half a million people just left the job market. Just stopped… looking… for work”…

“Last year we create as many jobs as we did this year”…

“13.1 % is the underemployment rate which includes part time workers”…

Full video HERE.  Then as usual  CNN Money tried to sugar coat the results. More like eating sugar coated cow pies…

“Hiring slumped sharply in December, as the economy added only 74,000 jobs, according to the government. This was the weakest month for job growth since January 2011 and came as a huge surprise to economists, who were expecting an addition of 193,000 jobs.

For all of 2013, the economy added 2.2 million jobs — on par with 2012’s gains.

Some economists believe December’s weak job gains could be a fluke, given other solid data recently. They expect the government to revise the numbers higher in the months ahead.” (I’m sure they will)

“Just about every other measure of job growth suggests that employers are either hiring or intending to hire, extending hours and laying off fewer people,” said Tim Hopper, chief economist for TIAA-CREF.

Let’s not panic,” said Heidi Hartmann, president of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, adding that “it’s not a horrible year, all things considered.

The government also noted that “unusually cold weather in parts of the country”could have had some impact on construction jobs for example. That sector lost 16,000 jobs in December.

Hate tip Hedge today for a rousing continued awareness chart. Believe me, there ain’t riches at the end of this rainbow…..

Tis ok though. I mean, how can it get any worse….. Oh….

President Obama has just nominated Lael Brainard as a Fed Governor, Jerome Powell to his second term and most notably, Stanley Fischer (ex Head of the Bank of Israel) as Vice-Chairman of the Fed.

Q. How does Fischer broadly think about the economy?

Fischer is a highly respected academic macroeconomist. He is credited with helping to lay the foundations of New Keynesian macroeconomics, which sought to place traditional Keynesian theory on a stronger microeconomic foundation. Subscribing to this school of thought, we believe that Fischer’s general view of the world is similar to that of Bernanke and Yellen, with a significant role for active fiscal and (more importantly) monetary policy. In fact, Fischer was Bernanke’s dissertation adviser in graduate school, and Bernanke recently referred to him as a “role model and frequent adviser.” As a result, we see little daylight between Fischer and the current core FOMC leadership with respect to their basic paradigm for thinking about the economy.

Q. How would his appointment affect the dynamics on the Committee?

Fisher is widely seen as a policy heavyweight, having not only run the Bank of Israel, but also served as the chief economist at the World Bank and First Deputy Managing Director (the number two position) at the IMF. Both his academic standing and policy experience suggest that Fischer’s views will be very influential on the Committee.


Spaceballs.. “Just what we need a Druish Princess.”

Or in this case a Israily Fed Vice Chairman. Buckle up Princesses, Im afraid we are going for a ride….


Dont drink the water folks. An in the case of West Viginia literally, dont drink the water…..

Nearly 200,000 people in West Virginia awoke Friday to stark warnings about their tap water: Don’t drink it. Don’t cook with it. Don’t even brush your teeth or take a shower.

The reason: a chemical spill in the Elk River in the central and southwestern parts of the state.

The news sent shock waves through the region as the worried headed to hospitals in search of reassurances they were OK.

Residents moved quickly to stock up on bottled water.

“We managed to get the last five bottles of water at 7-Eleven last night,” Charleston resident Beth Turley told CNN. “We are OK right now on water. We’re just drinking sports drinks and teas, things like that right now.”

“There was a run on water at every Walmart and convenience store in the county,” said Kent Carper, president of the Kanawha County Commission.

The leaked chemical, 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, is harmful if swallowed, said Thomas Aluise, a spokesman for the state’s Department of Environmental Protection. It is used to wash coal before it goes to market.

“You’ve got 60 miles of this system, and it’s full of this water,” said Carper of the Kanawha County Commission. “And people aren’t using the water.

For the masses, cow pies are “Crunchy yet Satisfying”..

Answering the Question

Posted By: SonOfSD on January 10, 2014
Catagory: Rants

(Ok this is my first real news post, so bear with me please. If I twist the internet all inside-out, it’s all the nephew’s fault for being a terrible instructor).

SonOfSD Edit: (Or perhaps the blame inhabits in the horribad space between the $20.00 Wally-World desk-chair and the antiquated keyboard you refuse to get rid of despite having no letters left on the keys?)

I was spending some time over at Misha’s joint, getting up to mischief, and was nailed by a pretty good question from one of resident Big-dogs. Well, the answer unexpectedly meandered into a short story, and it occurred to me that a filibuster of such magnitude deserved a more permanent home. Phone calls happened, relatives were roused from winter naps, and here we are.

SonOfSD Edit: (Appreciated you waking up the girls at 10:00 pm. Again. Wife thanks you too. Says you owe her Starbucks. She swears she’ll keep it expensive.)

Our discussion follows:

BigDogg – Imperial Thread Killer (ITK) writes:

Hemp – most of what you point to further illustrates the point I was originally trying to make (but didn’t think through fully until now).

This is truly a Catch 22. Sitting idly by and prepping isn’t going to stop the whole thing from going to hell in a handbasket. Burying our heads in the sand and thinking that if we just get a little more grassroots going in the political process, then we can turn this all around, is head-in-the-clouds wishful thinking.

That appears to leave the “if something’s gotta start, we might as well be the ones to get it started” mentality as the only alternative. That is a losing proposition, too. I don’t care how many “undergrounders” think that they are Legion, and that they can organize and win the hearts and minds once they get it started. And don’t feed me that “you just don’t know what/who I know, and what the plans are” bullshit … like Mike Tyson said “Everyone’s got a plan until they get hit in the face.”

What seems to be needed is a concerted effort – at more than just the blogosphere level – at counter-propogandizing and organizing non-violent civil disobedience. I don’t really hear too many people talking about those kind of plans.

Thoughts (anyone)???

Everything in life is a series of small steps sir.

Did Europe turn to a commie shit-pit overnight? Did the revolutionary war start instantly? Did it take a weekend and two elections for the Prog-nazi’s to jackboot their way through all of our institutions?

Or… were these events an agonizing process which roiled to a boil over decades?

I think every rational person here knows the answer to these questions.

I respectfully disagree with your premise – People are starting to “do things” sir. Folks ARE beginning to fight back, to organize. You claim you don’t see any civil disobedience… I know that you are factually incorrect on this point, I’ve SEEN it. You want some examples? What sort of civil disobedience are you looking for?

The tame kind? Go look at the Obamacare subscription numbers sir. We live in a nation of 350+ million – who are now required by law to be neck deep in that obcenity. Yet… how many paid up and jumped in? Less than 500 thousand. How many “enrolled?” Less than 3 million – most of which signed up for other programs. Look at groups like the Tea-party, literature like Mark Levin’s books, and witness the new media gobbling up market share – such as Brietbart and Glenn Beck’s Blaze.

All of these things are defiance, push-back. Disobedience toward those telling us to sit down like good little piss-ants and eat our mouthfuls of shit – and they are growing by the day.

Not enough?

How about some “non-felonious” Civil Disobedience then. You DID see the Barrycades getting piled up in front of Emperor Jugg-ears’s palace – right? Perhaps you witnessed the folks ignoring or gleefully tossing the “do-not-enter signs” plastered all over Federal Property? Surely you noticed the defiance of numerous Veterans groups, ignoring edicts to steer clear of their own memorials… How about the weddings being held brazenly on shuttered National Parks – complete with bird waving bride and groom?

Still more eh? Tough customer.

Ok then… What about the blatantly illegal? Plenty of stories in the news if you look for them – Bob Owens has been covering a good number for a few years now, (as have Bill, Hershal and Ol’ Remus over in their lairs). Pete at the WRSA practically runs a clearing house for patriotic mischief, and let’s not write off Mike at the SSI, who is mailing boxes of magazines to the very politicians that made owning them a felony.

Read what’s out there – I sure do notice a lot of general infrastructure mysteriously experiencing continuity of existence failure. Stuff your average rowdy kids and street thugs don’t typically “vandalize.” Seems awful unlikely to me that ne’er-do-wells have suddenly decided sabotaging sub-station transformers is the new “tagging.”

But remember this – when it comes to what I like to call “black hat patriotism” folks won’t exactly be out there advertising what they are getting up to.

Do you think some retired guy fisting uncle sugar on his taxes is going to leap onto the NSA bought and owned internet to proclaim it? Perhaps you believe an old rancher in northern Montana, ignoring Fed edicts left and right, intends to write an op-ed titled: “SCREW YOU EPA?”

We can continue with the hypotheticals…. What are the odds of some kid in Iowa bragging about everything he does with groups like Anonymous to throw spanners in the works? Or maybe a young lady who’s been taking classes with Mosby, working to form a real honest to goodness militia of her closest friends and family – is she going to get on facebook and help FedGovCo spy – any more than they already are? Perhaps another lad, who’s just returned to the sandbox, with a new little one on the way, passing on knowledge the overlords spent a lot of money teaching him – is that fellow going to scream from the rafters “Come GET ME!!!”

No sir. No they won’t. For very prudent, and very obvious reasons.

As Ms. Wolfe said:

“We are at that awkward stage, where it’s too late to fix the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.”
– Claire Wolfe

It’s not the proper time yet to do anything more than provoke, prepare, build foundations, poke the fedgoons in the eye, and be the best bad serfs we can. Misbehavior is happening all over the place if you pay attention. This very SITE is an act of civil disobedience and defiance.

Why not take up arms *right now* some ask, exhasperated and properly pissed off?

Well, for starters, the patriot movement lacks the public support, infrastructure, training, and the will for getting at any “real business” yet. Secondly, the “real business” is horrible shit, and nobody is especially eager to get about doing it – nobody sane or who’s ever been shot at before anyways. Finally, things have to get worse before it’s justified. People need to hurt, and hurt bad. They need to feel the real consequences of their inaction and gullibility. The masses need it explained, through tangible agony, how fucked this entire system truly is. Currently, the big lie is still being propped up, through deficit spending, market manipulation, taxation and money printing. People are still comfortable, fat, and entertained. (Somewhere in there is a reference to Rome looking to escape).

Pain brings growth. As the lies and tyranny unravel – and they will eventually, the only argument will be one of time-line – more and more of the population will hurt, and only then you’ll see very dramatic changes, for both good and ill. But until the pain is serious, you won’t see action. I wish it were different. I wish we could fix the problem BEFORE the sewer pipes clog, and the toilet has turned into a shit-fountain sputtering in the middle of your bathroom… but since our founding, we’ve always been like this. Generally speaking, we United States citizens procrastinate, let things simmer and fester until the issue E*X*P*L*O*D*E*S.

Been that way forever. The good book says life is a circle, and history seems to bear that out.

“The Americans Will Always Do the Right Thing…After They Have Exhausted All the Alternatives.”
– Sir Winston Churchill

Please consider – people come here and basically tell FedGov to fuck off. You might argue this does nothing, but, you’d be incorrect in my opinion.

For one, the internet is to us as the printing press and pamphlets were to the founders and colonial era Americans. Yes this beast is entertaining – and it’s an outlet for frustrations – but I’d remind you it’s no different in principle than sitting in Ye Olde New England Tavern with Benevolus’s new flyer, fuming with your companions over the latest British outrage. The insane amount of energy outputted by the government to infiltrate and collect data on the web serves only to confirm this notion.

Secondly, folks are learning as they spend time online. They’re getting plenty of ideas, being taught tricks, discovering how the Orcs work, awakening to new abuses, or being reminded of older usurpations. The web is educational and enlightening – and our taskmasters loath it, as it’s a threat to their hegemony.

Next, people are having their notions echoed, confirmed, challenged, and refined, by contact with others.

For example: 
– No one can think of everything – details will be missed, or more successful alternatives presented.

– Patriots need to see like-minded souls, to know they and theirs are not alone in the wilderness.

– Ideals must be challenged to be defended skillfully – what better forum? A person must learn to repel every assault, from the moronic to brilliant. Steel is refined using flame.

The Internet is the debate hall of modern America. Here, ideas are fabricated, attacked, defended and enhanced. Once properly tempered, these concepts can then spread to others, and that, is a concept Behemoth finds terrifying.


Finally, communities on the internet foster direct connections. Many of the people writing here have met one other in person, joined by ideals and common interests. These are alliances – comrades in arms, goals and mindset. When someone here is hurt, or down and out, money is gathered and delivered. When a soul is taken, sympathy and help flows to those left behind. These are real bonds, and the difference, in my opinion, between a keyboard and and a quill pen is zilch.

So, “things” are happening, there is defiance, there is disobedience, there is push-back. But you NEED to understand, that no movement occurs instantly. You do not add water and rehydrate an instant freeze-dried government, screw together a prefabricated revolution, or fix the destruction of a society that’s been 100+ years in the making. You grow into it. You nudge others into acceptance.

The United States government was designed to be slow and deliberative. The progressives understood the nature of the system better than the conservatives, and started the sluggish process of co-opting it more than a century ago. Do you think we can do better? Faster – or at all?

Resistance is a sand-pile that grows and cascades, one grain at a time. Whether you’ve lost all hope in the “system” and are focused on the gamble of replacing it, or believe that people need to “take it back,” working to those ends is not an undertaking to be resolved quickly. It is a battle of decades ahead of us.


On to the next point – You believe there is little to no counter-propagandizing going on. That’s a strange notion in my opinion – one I don’t see matching the reality of the situation.

Every time I load this page, I see thousands of words that could legitimately be called nothing but propaganda! Misha is a MASTER of the art, and almost daily the man razor-cuts into Prog-Nazi’s with a slasher smile from ear to ear. Mike Hendrix, Chris Muir and David Burge have made careers out “bone-shattering ridicule.”

What? You say we don’t control the big Media outlets? Why bother! They’re dying! As the Mainstream media collapses, Drudge, Instapundit, Free Republic, Brietbart, The Blaze, PJ Media, (and hundreds more!), gain larger and larger market shares. The newspapers are failing, ad-revenue crumbling… yet Limbaugh, Levin, Hannity, Beck, and Savage dominate radio, taking their message to an ever growing army of millions over the airwaves and now onto the internet.

Our message is propagating, and it’s effective in convincing people.

Why is it 63% of Americas believe Global Warming is bullshit – how did they come to THAT conclusion? It certainly didn’t come from the government controlled media, schools, or newspapers. The idea came from conservative propaganda, conservative media, and conservative thinkers, who got their message through despite the commies having locked down the legacy megaphones.

Not enough? How about Gun Control? It’s now a political POX to screw with guns – even in the face of a good number of highly visible public shootings. The DNC – this very instant – IS BEGGING Bloomturd to stop with his crusade against firearms. They’re pleading with him… on their hands and knees… to please…. please…. just… back off – before he destroys the lot of them anywhere more than 50 miles from an ocean.

They have to lie about what they are to win. Truth is rat-poison.

The government and it’s appendages barrage people with propaganda – and in the case of Fast and Furious even tried to “create the tragedy” to justify the legislation. Is it working? If not, WHY not? Perhaps maybe, we conservatives have some pretty wicked propaganda of our own deployed?

We evil right-wingers can read Alinsky, we know how to ridicule – we’d prefer to keep things civil, but if they want to serve… turn-about is going to be a wickedly cold bitch. When appropriate, our propagandists fashion mockery and lacerating wit into a spear – which we then stuff right up the Prog-Nazi’s ass. Metaphorically speaking.



That above is a metric ton of funny shit. It’s also extremely damaging propaganda. Those bombs come wrapped in a smile – but they leave craters on impact. As they should.


Finally, you mention the futility of prepping and bunkering in – which, from my perspective, is a misunderstanding of the situation on your part. Self reliance isn’t the destination after all. It is a step in the process. A way-point.

Sufficient people cannot be easily coerced. They can’t be quickly starved into submission, black-mailed into compliance, or forced by necessity into the “loving arms” of our taskmasters.

If the king doesn’t fill your coffer, and you don’t eat from his table, he’s reduced to exercising brute force to bend you to his will. There is justification and vindication in fighting against or disobeying naked tyranny. Against those who provide for themselves, there is only one weapon – and it’s an implement that reveals his majesty’s heart to all willing eyes.

The disobedience of the self-reliant creates sympathy, and makes forced compliance difficult, for no King has unlimited resources to project power, nor unlimited political capital to sell the idea.

“Prepping” is first and foremost is about teaching, learning, reinforcing responsibility and developing foresight. Before even daring to take a stand against the government, or undertaking the long march through institutions seeking a coup, a person must have their own shit in order.

Imagine a series of circles if you will.

You inhabit the center. You must master providing for your own needs and consumption. Having handled that, you begin to spread outward like a creeper. Envelope family next, expanding your ability to plan and meet their emotional and physical needs. Once a person has created security and stability in that arena, grow outwards more, pull friends into orbit. Help them understand and learn accountability, self-reliance, and responsibility. Teach, encourage, help them replicate your model – or allow them to improve on it! Continue outward, always encroaching, always working to propagate.

What you’re doing is creating a self-replicating galaxy of “solar systems” – a COMMUNITY that can’t be easily intimidated, and will balk at the sniveling of government weasels. You’re beginning the process of disarming Mordor by seeing to your needs – and multiplying the impact by teaching others.

Laying in sensible provisions is not the port of call sir. It’s the first stop in a globe-spanning adventure. You need to have your kit ready at a personal and local level before you can step up and spit in Leviathan’s face – or make a play for it’s throne. If you can’t prove to yourself and others that you’re capable of overseeing and providing for the needs of your community, how do you expect to be taken seriously at a national level?


Know what’s going on nationally. Be OUTRAGED. Makes your voice heard. But your efforts need to FIRST be on the one, the blood, your companions, and then your community. That is the initial bulwark against tyranny. Both for those looking to resist and those determined to steal back the system.

Get to work.

Some News Still Warms Our Vile Black Hearts...

Posted By: SilverDeth on January 8, 2014
Catagory: Rants

It’s colder than the frigid depths of the ex-sister-in-law’s nethers, the nation is a tyrannical monarchy in which the rule of law exists for only the well-heeled, (or connected), and the economy is a dead corpse being drug behind a speeding locomotive… off a ravine…

…but even with all of that, some news can still split our lips from ear-to-ear in a genuine smile…

From Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge:

Gun Sales Surge To Record High In 2013; Expect Ammo To Spike In 2014

“A record 21 million applications were run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) last year – an 8% increase over 2012 and, as The Washington Times reports, the 11th straight year that the number has risen. Background checks serve as a proxy for the number of gun sales, which soared in the months immediately after Sandy Hook (but notably fell in the last 2 months of 2013 as the Newtown and ‘fear of Obama’ effect wore off). “2013 was the best year for firearm sales (commercial, domestic) in history — period!” notes the president of the independent firearm owners association, adding that “Ammunition will still be very strong in 2014 as it hasn’t caught up nationally with the demand.” This could become a problem since, in what many believe was an attempt to ‘crowd out’ private buyers, the Homeland Security Department bought 1.6 billion rounds alone.”
– Tyler Durden

Read the entire beautiful thing HERE.

Sounds to us like plenty of folks out there are being kicked awake by Sauron’s jack-boot, mustering arms, and casting a baleful gaze towards Morder and it’s Orcs. Especially it’s Orcs… We approve.After all… in our opinion, The United States Federal Government’s first and foremost job is to be terrified shitless of it’s citizenry. The fear of being hung from the nearest upright object tends to have a motivating effect when it comes to honesty and transparency.

Bob Owens has some more thoughts and ruminations on this topic over at his place… we recommend you take a gander and absorb. We always approve of small, realistic approaches that folks will actually get out and DO.

As J.M.B. is fond of saying: “Baby Steps.”

PS: Remember in 2011 when we were saying “about now” would be a good time to stock up on ammunition? We do. Go ahead… try and find some .22 plinking cartridges or .223 Remington for anything approaching a sane cost…

…now, rather than listen to us toot our own piccolo, perhaps you should take a moment to consider what will be “expensive and/or scarce” in the next few years, and spend your fiat toilet-paper accordingly…

Walter E. Williams: It's Time to Take Secession Seriously

Time's Up
Posted By: SilverDeth on January 3, 2014
Catagory: Time's Up

Walter E. Williams over at Town Hall just discovered what many of us pegged several years back: There just is no way to reconcile the two mindsets separating rural and urban America. In essence, it’s the liberty minded patriots who just want to be left the fuck alone v.s. shit-nozzle Prog-Nazis unable to find happiness until they control everything down to the color of the toilet paper folks wipe their asses with.

There will have to be a separation at some point, or one mindset will have to eradicate the other.

To wit:

“Here’s a question that I’ve asked in the past that needs to be revisited. Unless one wishes to obfuscate, it has a simple yes or no answer. If one group of people prefers strong government control and management of people’s lives while another group prefers liberty and desires to be left alone, should they be required to enter into conflict with one another and risk bloodshed and loss of life in order to impose their preferences on the other group? Yes or no. My answer is no; they should be able to peaceably part company and go their separate ways.”
– Walter E. Williams

That would be stellar. We’d certainly prefer picking up and leaving the idiot Moonbats to freeze, fry, and starve the fuck to death in their urban shit-pits. However, since we are the ones supporting their rape and pillage mentality – with out labor and goods – we doubt very much they will simply “let us” mosey away all peaceful-like. The grasshoppers will die without the ants after all.

It’s a nice dream though.

He continues:

“I believe our nation is at a point where there are enough irreconcilable differences between those Americans who want to control other Americans and those Americans who want to be left alone that separation is the only peaceable alternative. Just as in a marriage where vows are broken, our rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution have been grossly violated by a government instituted to protect them. These constitutional violations have increased independent of whether there’s been a Democrat-controlled Washington or a Republican-controlled Washington.”
– Walter E. Williams

Read the entire thing HERE.

Yeah, peacefully parting company would be the best solution for all parties – one that would result in far fewer tears and tombstones than what is ACTUALLY going to happen when America tears itself to pieces.

We can dream and wish. But as they say… “Dream in one hand, shit in the other… tell us which weighs more…”
