A cheerful ramble through WW3

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.

Ah, the good old days when we almost went to WW3 over the moon:

And on the more serious side of WW3:

Whether The Bomb drops on your neighborhood or no, the S has already HTF. No more waiting (except for a few, or a few hundred, more consequences to catch up, some of which you may still be able to prep for).

More from Bayou Reniassance Man. (From a few days back, which may be ancient history in the realm of global realpolitik, but is still pretty worthwhile).

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. For those of you who have access to The Claire Files Forums, our “Latest in Shortages” thread is now 38 pages long and growing. Don’t have access to the forums? You can apply to join and discuss the end of the world and other matters with some smart people.

Sorry to have such a short, “lite” post on such a long, heavy subject, but this is all I can manage at the moment.

    There’s a guy on BoobTube earnestly trying to get people to prepare for nuclear fallout. Of all the preparations I’ve done, this one I can’t do. All of my farm animals will die. I don’t have a bunker. I can’t even convert this drafty house into a bunker if I worked for a year at it. I don’t have a basement. If I had put money into building a tornado shelter, that might have sufficed, but I didn’t.

    In other news, the goal for gas prices is $10/gal. And Xiden just announced we’re cutting off Russian oil, and we’re gonna buy it from… Venezuela and Iran. Seriously. But, we’re sure as heck not going to use our own resources. The hypocrisy is never ending.

    I’m of the opinion that the electric whizbang cars that rely on “energy” that comes out of a magic box, are just a distraction. The goal is to create as much havoc and carnage as is possible because:
    a) the less there are of us, the better for them, or
    b) there really is an entity called Satan
    Whichever, whatever, I’m glad my faith is stronger than the options in front of us and that this earthly place is not my forever home. If things don’t change, there’s gonna be a shootin’ war, guaranteed, worse than the Hatfields and McCoys.

    Electric cars…electric cars…and how does everyone think the electricity is generated? From gas and oil power plants of course! California recently had some electrical blackouts and they asked those people with electric cars, in areas not blacked out, to not charge them because it was putting stress on the system. Our society has yet to come to grips with how we are going to recycle worn out turbine generators, and solar panels in the tens of thousands.

    I find it both ironic and fitting that of all people, Tom Lehrer apparently got it right.

    You inspired me, Comrade X. We watched Dr. Strangelove last night.

    Under the circumstances, I’m not sure how good an idea that was, but we were … entertained.

    On another subject — It’s a MIRACLE! One of Putin’s Ukrainian victims RISES FROM THE DEAD!

    (Just a reminder, if any is needed, that nothing, from any side, can be considered true. It’s all manipulation.)

    Re: the moon almost started nuclear war: I’m surprised the military wasn’t aware of this risk. There is a ham radio transmission mode called E-M-E, for Earth-Moon-Earth, bouncing radio signals off the moon.

    The hilarious current meme is “It’s all Putin’s fault.”
    While correlation is not causation, non-correlation is a different matter. Russia’s March, 2022 invasion can’t be blamed for things going belly-up starting in November of 2020.

    I’ve spent the last four weeks nearly completely offline, getting news only from snippets that my husband mentions. I have had to be, in order to focus on the task at hand. The merely human processor between my ears cannot possibly keep up with world events on top of living in a maze of boxes in a construction zone, unpacking, cleaning, organizing, feeding six people without a dishwasher, and juggling similarly earth-shattering crises like “Maaaaamaaaa! He took my [whatever]” or “I can’t find any shirts!” As always, I wonder where the balance is between NOW and long-term. It is HIGH time the nearly-four-year-old learnt to read…but should that daily fifteen minutes be better spent stocking food? Starting seeds? Building pens? Will she grow up to use those skills? Who cares if they haven’t had clean clothes since yesterday, if we’ll all die tomorrow? I have to believe we won’t, and keep building for The Remnant. Awhile ago I was on the phone making an order to top off the KI, and I had to call back four times because I kept dropping signal as I stumbled across the back yard in muck boots that weren’t mine, hollering, “Don’t leave your sister up there! Go help her down!” And that sums up the tension in which we exist, between now and future. Good thing this world is only temporary!

    If Putin wants to win WW III, the simplest way to do it would be to make threats, get the ultra-elites pimping this crap to hole up in their bunkers, and just ground strike those bunkers.

    Then offer an immediate armistice.

    RE; The bunkers. Super convenient for those of us outside with a generator and a welder… Just sayin “A gilded cage is still a cage”. 🙂
