Signs of the Decline
I haven't been writing much by way of political posts lately. In many ways they are counter productive, at least in the short term, although eventually the hypocrisy that underlies the entire mess will be exposed for all to see and admit to. At present however it is the rare individual who can fully detach themselves enough to see the big picture without being completely biased in one direction or another. Usually exclusively for their own gain or whatever personal cash cow they happen to be milking until death do them part be it EBT, Public Pensions, Social Security, whatever. Sifting through the BS to get to the actual heart of the matter is pretty much inconsequential at this point anyway. The political and financial outcome is pretty much etched in stone it's just a matter of observing it as it happens and being prepared when it all comes crashing down.
And crashing down it will.....
I am reminded of a local couple that lived close by a few years ago. They had a fairly successful business that many preppers and readers here might recognize if I named it. They seemed happy but one Spring morning on my way to work at 5AM I drove by the Woman out jogging down the road. In all the years we had been living close to each other I had never seen her jog. Then it became a daily occurrence. I remember at the time telling my wife that things were changing and I doubt they would be married inside of a year. As is typical with my early observations the Mrs. exclaimed I couldn't make a prediction like that on such flimsy evidence.
Well the Mrs. was right. It took em almost a 14 months to get divorced not 12. As usual with doom predictions I missed the timing and predicted it early. Go figure.
My point is sometimes you can see the pieces fit together from the simplest and slightest observation. One person can drive by and see a bunch of new dwellings being built and think the economy is booming while another can go by and notice all those buildings are duplexes or quadplexes and realize we have become a nation of tenants which tells a different story. Regardless of which story you want to believe the end result will be the same.
Recently a half dozen signs have been placed on businesses down in Austin, Texas. A mere half dozen shouldn't even be news worthy except of course it happens to speak out against the current MUlti-Cult/PC frenzy religion that engulfs America's Lefty progressives and that our government obsesses over.
Someone in Austin Is Putting Up "Exclusively For White People" Stickers
At least six businesses in Austin, Texas, have been plastered with stickers reading “Exclusively For White People," drawing condemnation from the state’s residents, lawmakers and NAACP representatives.
My bet personally is that this is a hoax and the stickers are being placed by Liberals to try and stir up trouble. However the personal motivations of the people placing these stickers isn't as important as what it shows is happening not just in Austin but across the US. Gentrification. Which is really just a clickish way of saying Whites moving back into the cities from the suburbs.
Many of you may remember that a migration back into the cities has long been reported as being a sure sign of energy decline and peak oil. It has been happening for years now but like everything else in this decline it starts out at the speed of continental drift. Slowly, and most refuse to even notice it, but happen it does. Oil prices maybe down right now but that is only a part of the whole expense of living in suburbia. As the middle class gets destroyed so does the suburbs. In turn this will cause more and more racial, cultural and class tensions that will simply exasperate the decline more. It will also ultimately hurt the tax base in the form of less gasoline, property and use taxes, which will effect the entire pie and send the various groups into even more squabbling over whats left.
Nothing that wasn't predicted seven or eight years ago I might add but as typical most thought it would start happening years before it begins to show itself as a problem. By the time it really becomes noticeable to the average person the prediction has long been forgotten.
But that doesn't change the outcome one bit.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
