And I wondered why you called it "Operation Buffalo Jump" in FEAT.
B T W the best way to kill hogs is to dig a hole about two feet deep and place the corn at the bottom . when the hogs start to root around the hole and feed ,you shoot the hog in the corn-hole. ;-)
Brilliant and chilling...
Nobody ever said life would be easy, nor safe, nor anything other than what it is...daily survival on different levels and at different extremes.
Lessons to learn and take to heart.
Thanks for the ping, good brother.
” (And now I will be called the usual pejoratives by the usual politically correct imbeciles,....”
No pejoratives from this guy. I took your advice 6 years ago, sold my home in Los Angeles, and moved 18 miles outside a city in AZ.
Essay was so good I saved it.
Thanks Travis!! Another great thought provoking column.
Oddly enough, I didn’t get pinged.
I think this is a most excellent article that makes a very salient point. I think it is exactly going to happen like that, most people will be the sheep. Just human nature to follow the crowd, especially these days reinforced by pop-culture, media and skoolz.
Can you imagine (worst case scenario) millions of zombie-looters leaving the cities looking for food and whatever else? How long will that situation last? Will they die off fast enough so that some self-sufficient survivors remain without being overrun and killed? Because the first reaction of this mob to seeing a little place in the country where people still have food is going to be ANGER and a jealous rage.
Deep, deep down they will know that these people worked hard and sacrificed to move away from the city and raise/store their own food. Deeper down they might even know these people did the right and proper thing. The rage also comes from knowing that they their own selves didn’t do this, didn’t prepare, didn’t know to or care to. It will just make them madder. They are conditioned to think it unfair.
So even though many who did the right thing have a shot at survival, if the mob finds them early a few rifles might not make much of a difference.
Hopefully enough of the mob dies off quickly enough for some in the far flung hinterlands to survive, rebuild a society and some day allow the exploration and resettlement of the rest of the continent.
Hopefully it would never get quite that bad.
Bravo Zulu. You outdid yourself on this one, though I have some doubt about how really widespread the alleged suicidal behaviour of lemmings is.
So you’re saying that the turkeys voted for farmer Brown.
