I Sincerely Want Hillary Clinton to Run For President in 2016. Can She Win?

Which means: Since it’s the dawn of 2014, she’s gottta get her ass in gear soon

I was wondering about it, since she’s been stangely out of the news since she resigned as Chief Executive in the tough job of keeping Planet Earth, The Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy 00000, safe for American “Land of the Free” Democracy in the realm of what is euphemistically called diplomacy. She had numerous publicized heath crises in those years and so I’m figuring she’s popping up on the stage any day now, touting The paleo Diet, and how it made her healthy and sexually attractive, again. Fit to run the Universe!

She’ll make sure a few contrived rumors of young-stud, personal-trainer liaisons get leaked to the tabloid press—the important press—in advance. (“Hillary is banging her personal trainers in group orgies, ‘inside’ source tells all.”)

I just Googled, and found an excellent reason she ought to run, aside from the Hillarity that will surely ensue should her shrill insistence on everything rise again, ensuring, most certainly, to remind most male voters of the ex-wife or mother-in-law from Hell.

A report in the Globe magazine claims that Clinton, 66, has a brain tumor. And a source told ShowBizSpy that Clinton has been warned by doctors that running for president could kill her. [emphasis added]

So, there’s that.

…I truly don’t take stock in the-most-important tabloid press, or the dishonest press. Neither; though I find it amusing how people think and make silly distinctions about how the NYT is more important than The National Enquirer.

…I mainly want to see her run in order to prove myself right. I always lafed at libertarians who rung hands over her potential as President-elect. From day one I predicted she would—no matter what—never be President.

I want to be proven right, and I have never wavered in my judgment on the matter; because no matter how fucking stupid I think is the general population of “voters” (that’s euphemism for Social Masturbators), they are human-animals, too. There’s just something essentially inhuman and alien about Hillary. While Bill is pretty much a typical lying, hound-dog politician and getting a blow job from Monica in the Oval Office was the absolute least that came out—even about Monica—and everyone who’s not a fucking moron knows this, and tens of millions don’t care and explicitly ignore it…Bill is comprehensible. He makes sense. C’mon. He’d be a riot to have too many drinks with.

Hillary? Nope.

So it’s a so what? Yes, and that much is clear and on some levels, I agree. I hate politicians for other reasons, but admire their proven abilities—that always and forever have to do with how they so Hillariously make you voters their general bitches. This is all and only entertainment value to me.

Plus, it reminds me about what a pathetic collection of fucktard dumbasses Republicans are, and that always makes my day; but only because they so richly deserve it.

Unless the country is literally on the brink of economic disaster or under attack—from a force that’s not 14th-Century-Dirt-Scratching—they’re like Pee-wee Herman running for President.

They simply can’t forget the professional actor from 1980. It’s 34 years already—about 40 if you count the masturbation years.

…This will become even clearer in the course of time, as young people at large laf at the literal imaginary friends of Republicans and their brainwashed progeny. Democrats are decades ahead on this level of understanding. …If you listened to the podcast I was interviewed in today, I noted that I always listen to young people—all the time, preferentially, and just yesterday, BTW. Bea and I were the oldest by more than 20 years at the Playoffs Party. We loved it the best.

Both Democrats and Republicans will eventually be laughed off the face of the Earth. But Republicans are first. Who can possibly take adults seriously who harbor imaginary friends who talk to them, answer their prayers, tell them anything they want to hear, and that informs their actions? And the pathos goes on.

The most fundamental way to understand the antagonism between Democrats and Republicans is that of the antagonism between children and adults, or parents and their offspring. Republicans are children, politically. They have a constituency that cares about morality, which is good. The problem is, Republican morality isn’t based on rational shit (libertarians ought to have realized this by now). It’s based upon imaginary friend stuff written 2-3,000 years ago—written with that imaginary friend whispering in some author’s ear (Inspired is the chosen euphemism). Rational morality that people agree with at large is accidental, per se. Faith-based is the only true morality. They never really thought it out.

Faith is, of course, arbitrary. Is the antagonism that that arbitrariness engenders, the point?

…And faith trumps any double blind, placebo, randomized, controlled trial that was just published today, 2014—in the same Medical Journal that perhaps published a paper on how to defeat any number of tweaks that Imaginary Friend sacked the world with, for fun, and that killed millions, for fun.

They’re sweethearts at heart, but fucking dumbass stupid: socially and politically. And it goes without saying.

Republicans have been running the scam for decades: that they’re really not all and completely about their imaginary friend. And that’s cool, because in so doing, they expose themselves as the fucking liars they are as months wear on, at this point. They can’t live with their imaginary fiend, explicitly and practically in 2014; but they’re too pathetically petrified to live without him. They fear death, and the loss of a lie-fantasy that everyone they love is going to be rejoined. Sucks, but it’s not going to happen. I don’t really wish it were true—I’d rather just have everyone I ever loved still here. But it’s not reality. Republicans are in a knowledge pinch that’s getting pincher by the week and month! They ought to talk to random 20-somethings like I do, not just those brainwashed in their churches—which, incidentally, I escaped from in 1979: Tennessee Temple University.

Glad I raised a middle finger to the heavens 22 years ago and made sure it helped me live better.

I do adore talking to young people, and every chance I get. I ask probative questions. Do you ever even bother? It’s the only way I know of to predict the future. Yea, yea, yea: they’re going to recognize our wisdom, one day. It’s true. It will be a blend of sentiment and shit you were right about. But they are not going to be anything like a carbon copy and you must understand: they are going to laf at you where you have deserved to be lafed at.

Republicans: non, Flyover-Walmart-Church young people do NOT relate to you. You’re fucktards to them and so very rightly so, and you will never win them over with your lafworthy God & Country schtick. They don’t know it so much as just feel it and live their own deal. Most young people actually didn’t get stupidly fooled into sacrificing their lives and the lives of their woman and children in the dogshit insanity of Iraq and Afghanistan—that no matter how you slice it is not even a potential BLACK on any contrivable balance sheet with all morality tossed out the window.

I think it’s all about religion, ultimately. That’s why an American President with an imaginary friend for real—GWB was probably the first American President in decades to truly believe in it rather than lie for all the morons—Popes have been atheists for centuries—truly got everyone into this. It’s a morass, a nightmare.

Back on point:

Consider what I’ve always thought going all the way back to the Monica scandal, the most serious of all the Clinton Bimbo Eruptions. The Democrat strategists understood something that even if the Republican strategists did too, was impossible to maneuver around or against. That must have been so delicious to the Democrats at the time. What’s more delicious than looking someone in the eye, telling them exactly how you’re going to kick their ass, but they have no options?

  1. Republicans bank literally everything on their imaginary friend and the sanctity of America. God & Country. Nobody is more true to that than Republicans. Though largely fantastical, it is nonetheless a viable political position. There’s a Salt of the Earth aspect to it and at the end of the day, only Republicans in general and Democrats in Labor Unions make toilets flush on time.
  2. Everyone seems to be able to eventually forgive and overlook hound-dog behavior, like a BJ from an intern—even if in the Oval Office and you’re the President, or especially so? Dems understood this too. Republican consulted their sin-is-sin imaginary friend and got the answer they sought (actually, they didn’t pray about it—this one, they knew). How is a married president getting a BJ on the side morally different from a married Anybody getting a BJ on the side? Dems just knew Republicans would undermine their own “everyone is equal in God’s eyes” catechism there. They banked on it; cashed in. Schooled, because Republicans live in a fantasy and as such, are profoundly dishonest; whereas, Democrats are just liars.
  3. What people don’t overlook easily are emotional affairs. Sex is merely a manifestation. “Do you love her?” This is the most material question a woman ever asks, and it’s everything to her if she cares. Where is your heart? she’s asking. Republicans focussed in on the Old Testament BJ-act as sin-worthy of a good stoning— just as any good 14th Century Dirt Scratching Savage would do. Democrats focussed attention on the metaphorical New Testament, with its forgiveness and salvation for any wrongs. Laf: I love how the Democrats fucking owned the Republicans in that whole deal. The Republicans fucking Impeached the guy and still lost. Losers, rightly so; they don’t deal with reality as it is and they cater to fucking lunatics in a worse way than Democrats do.

Number three is really the crux of the deal. In all of Bill’s shenanigans over decades of being in positions where such was easy, and with good reason to believe it was all pretty true what he did, America didn’t care and that was a proud moment for me in just realizing it. There’s no country on Earth with such a combo of planet killing power combined with fanatical religious fanaticism, and so it ought give everyone comfort that a President can get a BJ in the Oval Office from a 22 yr-old-intern and no matter what the frenzy, everyone ultimately looks away.

In the context of politics, the Democrats knew to give up early on the facts, let the Republicans have them. See, Republicans are entirely predictable, because their playbook is written out of the cherry picked portions of the Bible (…Though the Evil Parts are a standoff, because even if held as metaphor and literature al-la all the Ivory Tower scholars who are 100% left, how to deal with “metaphors” of mass rape, murder, incest, stoning over adultery, slavery, and on and on, besides overlooking the modern-day manifestations…such as the feminists and multiculturalists do now, the former because American men are worse that Taliban men?)

…So, in the end, perhaps Bill Really loves Hillary? Still does?

Why I couldn’t stand her before was her ridiculous condescending elitism, al-la Al Gore, who’s easily the most loathsome condescending person on Earth for me and I would love to kick him in the teeth. Just saying.

After the Monica deal I loathed her even more because of the pragmatic, expedient way in which she dealt with it.

There was a lesson in the Lewinsky affair, in terms of understanding the lust for power. Someone with a shot at it—like Hillary certainly had in spades at the time—can get publicly dragged through the mud in disrespect and shame and any number of things, but the calculated only thing that matters is that Hillary was innocent. A victim. So that’s just another clever thing Democrats understand that Republicans never will.

They only love Biblical victims, and Jesus is their standard of value qua victim. They’re functional morons, getting more dysfunctional by the day, as I watch and laf.

For a Republican, when you’re a legitimate victim, you fucking do something about it and if you don’t try, then maybe you deserved it—unless you’re The Lamb of God. See, even Republican religious metaphors—which they believe literally—can’t help but make you wonder if they have functioning minds. For a Democrat, being a victim is money-as-metaphor. This turns on everything that happens, even right up into the Oval Office.

In short: We’re fucked, and this is why I’ve said for a long time that it’s The Evil Party vs. The Stupid Party. I know where my bet will be placed.

Imagine how pragmatically smart the Democrats are in terms of political maneuvering vs. stupid Republicans with Jesus at the Wheel. No contest. Hell, Republicans are on the dole, or have someone they care about on it and understand what would happen if it didn’t exist.

We’re fucked.

    Liberalism is the national religion practiced in the U.S.S.A., implemented in faith and denial, devoid of valid philosophy.

    There is zero discernible difference between Democrats or Republicans; there are only Republicrats.

    There is nothing innocent about socialism. Every Republicrat including Hillary isn’t worth the time and energy required for mechanical processing into compost. Let her rot.

    Young folks might do well to remember this: If it looks like shit, and it smells like shit, don’t eat it, ’cause it’s shit.

    Didn’t you hear? Tricky Willy got religion and found veganism! He’s been following Dr. Dean’s and eats a very low fat plant-based diet, and doesn’t he look so much better for it?

    Don’t make the mistake of saying he looks emaciated or sallow, that is the true picture of health right there. People like Mark Sisson, Loren Cordain, or even you Mr. Nikoley are obviously just too puffed up from all that animal fat and protein you’re eating.

    I for one would run with IRA money in tow TO ANOTHER COUNTRY if this woman gets elected, and I’ll tell you why: when her hubby was president, SHE was the brilliant brain (insert sarcasm here) in the room who came up with the plan to raid everyone’s IRA accounts to the tune of $10k EACH to refill the Treasury coffers.

    At the time, it wasn’t such a hot deal, because only the rich had that kind of money stashed away. But nowadays, anybody with an established IRA has many times that much! If she gets elected, tell me she won’t try this hair-brained scheme AGAIN, only come after 10% of our IRAs instead of a mere $10k!!

    And who’s to say she’d restrict herself to IRA accounts? She might also come after private portfolios, margin accounts, commodity shares, or even attempt to take over Wall St. itself.

    No–THIS woman needs to do what she’s been saying all along: no to the presidency, and just go home and be a grandma–cookie-baking and all.

    Respectfully, you are off base here. Religion is not the driver of the Republican party. The Republican party is happy to control slightly less than half of the government, at least nominally, and serve as a foil for the true power structure. The true power structure consists of the official press, the universities, the Democrat party and, not least, the permanent civil service. If anything, the D ascribe more strongly to religious-like beliefs and behavior, they have simply concealed it by omitting reference to a deity. Instead, they worship the state; instead of sins against a deity, they have sins against diversity, or the environment etc. It is much worse to have a hidden religion than an open one, since one is convinced one has no religion at all.

    I did not come up with this stuff myself. I highly recommend the archives of the blog of Mencius Moldbug, unfortunately he is not terribly active lately.

      I’m by no means a Randroid, but I think she got it right, here.

      http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/mystics_of_spirit_and_of_muscle.html

      Mystics of Spirit and of Muscle

      As products of the split between man’s soul and body, there are two kinds of teachers of the Morality of Death: the mystics of spirit and the mystics of muscle, whom you call the spiritualists and the materialists, those who believe in consciousness without existence and those who believe in existence without consciousness. Both demand the surrender of your mind, one to their revelations, the other to their reflexes. No matter how loudly they posture in the roles of irreconcilable antagonists, their moral codes are alike, and so are their aims: in matter—the enslavement of man’s body, in spirit—the destruction of his mind.

      The good, say the mystics of spirit, is God, a being whose only definition is that he is beyond man’s power to conceive—a definition that invalidates man’s consciousness and nullifies his concepts of existence. The good, say the mystics of muscle, is Society—a thing which they define as an organism that possesses no physical form, a super-being embodied in no one in particular and everyone in general except yourself. Man’s mind, say the mystics of spirit, must be subordinated to the will of God. Man’s mind, say the mystics of muscle, must be subordinated to the will of Society. Man’s standard of value, say the mystics of spirit, is the pleasure of God, whose standards are beyond man’s power of comprehension and must be accepted on faith. Man’s standard of value, say the mystics of muscle, is the pleasure of Society, whose standards are beyond man’s right of judgment and must be obeyed as a primary absolute. The purpose of man’s life, say both, is to become an abject zombie who serves a purpose he does not know, for reasons he is not to question. His reward, say the mystics of spirit, will be given to him beyond the grave. His reward, say the mystics of muscle, will be given on earth—to his great-grandchildren.

      I had not previously seen this Rand excerpt, and I also agree with it. My objection is that the left gets away with its mysticism, which makes it insidious and more harmful, while the right gets continually flogged for being religious nuts, which they sometimes are, but they are also honest about it.

      Also, the reason young people hate the R party is that they spend the better part of 20 years as captives of the education establishment, which openly hates conservatism and republicans. It is not because they are original thinkers.

      “My objection is that the left gets away with its mysticism, which makes it insidious and more harmful, while the right gets continually flogged for being religious nuts, which they sometimes are, but they are also honest about it.”

      Point taken. Yea, my focus this time was on the righties. I’m always blogging about the commies of the left so the Rs were overdue.

      Now, see there? I think we’ve come to an agreement. That sure makes for shitty blogging.

  10. hdob on January 14, 2014 at 13:15

    By all means, righties deserve their share, too. I like variety as much as the next guy, so I want to see lefties get the “religion” whip once in a while. The elite repubs deserve plenty of scorn. I have a soft spot for the average republican voters, people with families who may or may not go to church every Sunday.

    Re mysticism put the following questions to republican and democrat voters:

    1) Is the planet Earth more than 10,000 years old, or less than 10,000 years old?
    2) Did dinosaurs walk the earth with humans?

    You have to ask the questions of voters, not politicians, because there is no way in hell a politician will answer those questions, regardless of political affiliation.

    I don’t ask for much, all I ask is for people to acknowledge the fact that the planet Earth is more than 10,000 years old.

  12. Braden on January 14, 2014 at 20:22

    I kind of feel that the Republican party is a political party with autism. On the outside, it doesn’t look very smart because it doesn’t behave in a “normal” way, but secretly, it has a very deep understanding of the way the world works. Whatever to all that. It just amazes me how the Republican party manages to retain such a large number of subscribers at completely opposite ends of the spectrum. I’m addressing this from a more economic-focused perspective, but think of how the Republican party appeals to the very wealthy with the messages of lower taxes and less regulation, but they also ensnare a lot of [uneducated rural very religious] people. I feel like they’ve got a sneakily well designed platform. They manage to advocate freedom alongside a social agenda which mainly focuses on persecuting minorities. It’s genius, because obviously the minorities will never gain control in a democratic system. On the bright side, the internet…

    • Richard Nikoley on January 14, 2014 at 21:08

      Branden:

      Consider that the reason Rs appeal to the rich & poor is that…well, rich is obvious. Poor are the interesting ones. Dismiss the religion and what you have are basically self sufficient people who don’t want to be told what to do, but also will, far from asking for a handout, will refuse it if offered half the time.

      Nobody ever talks about this kind of level playing field. It’s easier to start a business in most formerly communist countries than the US, now.

    A book lies there to be read.

    A degree is largely a certificate of indoctrination, not education. Due diligence in discovering correlation between indoctrination (degrees) and sustainability, reveal academia a church of blind leading blind.

    Wisdom is never parasitic.

    I can tell more about someone by a glimpse at their CD and LP collection than their transcript and resume. But then I know the difference between propaganda and dialogue. Two degrees and no indoctrination doesn’t explain my cumulative 3.7 GPA.

    If young folks are considering taking on college debt, they may do well to remember this:

    Richard, Woodchuck or whoever….any thoughts on where this is all headed? I have been trying to educate myself a bit on economics, reading the Mises site, Austrian economic theory, etc. I guess my worry right now is the possibility of hyperinflation at this point, but I am not sure I know enough to judge the arguments I see made for likelyhood of this. How realistic a fear do you feel this is? Or do other avenues of societal breakdown see more likely to you? Maybe we will have a nice slow decline over a long time, but I doubt we will get that lucky.

    • Richard Nikoley on January 18, 2014 at 08:30

      “any thoughts on where this is all headed? ”

      Civil war.

    • Woodchuck Pirate on January 18, 2014 at 09:33

      SteveRN,

      In the interest of clarity, I’ll state that I worked independently self employed as a series 7 licensed registered rep for approximately 5 years. I sold out just prior to the dot com bubble burst, quit the business and let my licenses expire. Nothing I say will constitute investment advice or recommendation, and should not be misconstrued as a suitable recommendation, in any way shape or form.

      I subsequently sold out of the market before the housing bubble burst. I had been living in Phoenix, AZ for 6 years and was horrified at the deliberate corrupt bank fraud facilitated by the state. The notion that anyone could claim they didn’t see the crisis coming in Phoenix is absurd. The universal observation of “civilized” humans is the key to destroying them. When there is a dollar set on a table in front of them, they will pocket it, and suspend reason as long as necessary to wait for the next dollar to appear on schedule. The capacity for narcissism is unlimited in humans willing to follow their ego (story) if it systematically leads them to money. Therefore the easiest way to conquer a society is to write them a check. The powers that be simply decide who, when and how much. There are always lies about the money trail, but the money trail never lies. Ego always lies, because ego isn’t real. Ego wants to be real, and so will employ pragmatism (aversion to principle) to any degree necessary to manifest mental gymnastics to sustain faith and denial in hopes to suspend reason forever. Ego is evil. True self emerges as ego dies. If one accepts this concept then invoking reason reveals the sinister facts of “economics” that correlate to the mixed economy model, which is socialism not capitalism.

      I can think of nothing worse than extending the slow decline that has occurred over a long time. There has been no true economic growth since 1980. Karl Denninger at market-ticker.org does an excellent job of analyzing the deficit spending to arrive at the true money trail effects to explain this despotic trend of GDP. This devolution is coupled with the US default on its debt as embodied by the 1971 event where Nixon took the USA off the gold standard. The price of gold at that time was $35 an ounce. When gold goes up, the dollar is going down. Paper money hold no water. I do not imply that Karl Denninger is an advocate of a gold standard, as he views gold strictly as a commodity. However given the choice to hold precious metal or currency, I’ll continue to avoid working for fiat currency forever.

      The role of hyperinflation would be as savior in my paradigm. I am more appreciative to see reality bite someone’s face off rather than see them coerced grudgingly toward truth. Self-suffering is very caustic to the ego and has a cumulative effect of opening portals where individuals accept freedom for extended periods. Attempts to seek the conversion of others is therefore irrational, as they will always revert to collective ego behavior as soon as another dollar drops onto the table before them. Back to square one. Hyperinflation is unavoidable, one only needs to ask when do the powers that be, intend to effect the collapse by ceasing to kick the can down the road? This is not a global comedy of errors manifesting unintended consequences. This is 100% deliberate. This is evil. This is collective ego (evil). And… in case you haven’t killed your ego, allowed true self to emerge and see reality clearly, the politicians are not “the powers that be”. Economics is not a science, it is a behavior. Politicians have simply volunteered to be mules being pulled up ladders. Voting for a politician is simply volunteering to help pull mules up ladders. It’s a show and has no productive outcome. This is the mixed economy model, your role is debt-slave until collapse where the game is reset and pieces are collected, distributed geographically, with new costumes for the powers that be.

      The inflation effects are so bad given the total corruption of the market and central banking fraud, that I get rid of currency as soon as possible. I have completely divested of stocks and bonds, and have zero intention of ever going back. Anything from tractors to land is acceptable. Of course land and housing is exposed to medicaid expansion taxes under Obamacare which dictates I hold only what I can put to work. I do not consider rental property an acceptable proposition because when folks can no longer pay rents, the fed gov’t will issue a moratorium (for the good of the nation) outlawing evictions. If no moratorium appears it won’t matter because there will be so many evictions pursued, you won’t be able to get a court date. It is irrational to pursue rental property as a means of making a sustainable living. Of course humans accustomed to waiting for the next rental dollar to drop as scheduled, will continue to suspend reason as necessary until reality bites their face off. Fuck em, they are not victims. They are walking compost.

      The bottom line is anarcho-capitalism or else. As 99.99% of the human race is pure scum by choice, there will be (already is) 99.99% casualties willingly part of the corrupt fucking system. A reasonable person withdraws their consent and participation from corruption by refusing to initiate force against individuals. As the global presence of gov’t consists of 100% mixed economy model, a reasonable person has no intrinsic economic differentiation identity whatsoever. A reasonable person doesn’t belong in the game and isn’t invited.

      The answer is found only at the individual level. There is zero collective utility in lowering the bar enough to say that mankind facilitated by the mixed economy model has “societal constructs” at all. It’s obscene that individuals are in such denial of their initiation of force against others, to conspire endlessly by embracing collective ego, celebrated by patting themselves on the back, day in and day out. Fuck em, I don’t wish them luck. More walking compost.

      Regarding “when” the powers that be will stop kicking the can down the road rests upon how they will dispose of the shitboomers. Whether it be herding them through hospital doors in polite sequence or into martial law evacuation camps doesn’t matter to me. The economics (behavior) of the powers that be is non-diluted by any free market activity. There is no discernible competitive behavior present. They surely have reached their goal, no? Would it make any difference if they pushed them out of windows? But then why employ individualistic creative theatrics? Most slaughterhouses value efficiency foremost.

      It seems likely that there will be a merger of China and U.S.S.A. to arrive at Chimerica. Where the communist stoic expertise of China can effect force in full costume. If the Chinese tanks rolled onto the shores tomorrow, the senior socialists would gladly secure their socialism security checks by praising their great society for rising above the petty squabbles of individual nations. Fuck em, their lucky “slow decline” will never materialize. They have nothing but default on their debt to bargain with. Try suspending reason to carry that one off. No innocence found. Not worthy of compost.

      SteveRN, collapse would be a gift mankind doesn’t deserve to receive. But that doesn’t meant it can’t happen. All signs say it will because the mixed economy model has zero to do with truth. Is infinite truth vulnerable to ego? Of course not. Such is the nature of ever-lasting life. There remains zero evidence to suggest it is avoidable. The powers that be are insane, and have declared war against infinite truth. The earth is finite, the herd doesn’t matter only the individual matters. Get out of the herd.

      I like to watch the madness from the portal zerohedge.com and despite member attempts to embrace reason, the senior socialists still cling to their socialism security checks with bitter entitlement mentality. Collapse is written in stone. Stock up on popcorn.

      Enjoy your day.

    Thanks guys! Wow, quite the contrast, short and sweet for Richard, long and involved for WCP. WCP, I am definitely going to have to read thru that a few times, lots of info in there. I find your mention of the housing market in Phoenix interesting. I lived here in the late 90’s (had to move back recently, long story, not where I really want to be) and worked framing houses. We built pretty high priced house. Not mansions, but nice. Fountain Hills area, Anthem, those kinds of sub-divisions. Most went for around 1 million. We could not build them fast enough. I could never understand how that many people had that much money to spend on houses. I guess the answer is, they did not. Anyway, I was wondering if you might point me to some websites, books, resources where I can further educate myself on economics, personal, micro and macro, monetary policy, etc. to kind of guide me to what I should be doing on a personal level to prepare. Of course, with all the uncertainty, maybe specifics are impossible, just prepare and hope you are ahead of the game enough to survive when it all falls down. I came from a background where personal finance never went much beyond get a good education so you can get a good job, try to save some money. You can guess how that turned out. I don’t blame my parents, it is all they knew. But now I am realizing I am late to the game and trying to make up for it.

      You are not late to the game. Capitalism has never existed anywhere at any time in history. The mixed economy model is socialism, not capitalism. The mixed economy model exists solely to farm up corruption fertilized with moral hazard. Walk away.

      Re books.
      Anything by Thomas Sowell is a good start on Economics and society in general. His book “Basic Economics” turned a Lefty friend of mine straight.
      Move cash from Fiat to precious metals if you can.
      Learn some survival skills and trade able skills (sounds like you have the latter with your framing houses background).

    Thanks Woodchuck, I will check that out. I was not sure if you comment about zerohedge.com meant you found that a good source of knowledge or not, but after looking at it, I THINK you meant you did find it useful.
    Thanks Dan, I have read some of his columns, will check out the books too. I do want to start moving some cash to metals, problem is the cash. I am torn between two directions; the Dave Ramsey idea of getting my debt completely gone fast, but that will mean, 1.5-2 years, I think. This is fine, as long as shit does not go down in the meantime. The other direction would be, just screw the debt, pay minimums, and stock up on gold, guns and food. I seem to have found conflicting theories on how bad it would be to have credit card debt if hyperinflation hits, and just really high inflation may be a different animal. Also, considering the idea of taking the initial penalty/ tax hit and withdrawing the minimal I have in 403B to pay of 90% of debt, leaving me free to spend more on guns/gold and food. I could always use more skills, though between the Marines, construction, and nursing, I think I have a good broad base. I am considering going to work in the ER. As a icu nurse, I have some good experience, but only in a situation where vents, various titratable drips and other advance technology are available. ER would give me some good emergency medicine skills and experience, I think.
    That is what I love about this blog, from potato starch to survival strategy, to food porn, you never know what you are going to get and learn from day to day.
