Hahahahaha. Joel is SO right. The superrich got their WW3 bunkers a long, long time ago — and those bunkers didn’t cost the price of a modest house in a downscale market.
If you haven’t got your bunker yet, Mr. or Ms 10-Percenter, you be out of luck.
Ain’t that the truth? They’re not even giving us an hour between world-ending crises these days.
Anybody out there who doesn’t think that all the drumbeating for the U.S. and Western Europe to go to war with Russia is all part of the plan? Just the latest step in The Great Reset, designed to reduce We the Peasants to a small, malleable remnant, ready to serve Our Masters?
Oh, the 1960s have become so relevant again! No, not those 1960s, with the Beatles and bellbottoms and The Summer of Love, but the 1960s before those, when Tom Lehrer wasn’t the only one singing cheery songs of doom.

While you can now expect gas prices to go up at least another dollar (or more), that’s okay. Because eventually you’ll have one of those (affordable, totally non-polluting, totally non-child-labor, totally run by an endlessly available and totally clean grid) super-clean electric cars so you won’t care.
As you wait for your clean, affordable electric car to arrive, and just in case WW3 turns out to be a dud, you can be sure that Our Glorious Leaders have the next crisis waiting in the wings
I’d say, “Prepare!” but except for a little touch-up here and there, if you’re not already prepared … you’re unprepared.
