Let's Get Ready To Rumble

Things are bad.

They're going to get worse.

Shortages have already started to crop up. Reports are filtering in from some areas of the country that once common pharmaceuticals are in short supply or are "temporarily" unavailable.

Good thing there's apparently enough Xanax to dope chimpanzees into violent rages.

Food shortages loom on the horizon.

Water shortages already are presenting themselves as droughts continue worldwide.

Ammunition shortages are beginning to crop up.

Firearms and gun parts shortages are being reported for popular models.

The BATF had to get in the act and is reporting a shortage of Form 4473.

It's promising to be a hot summer here in the Northern Hemisphere. There's an inverse relationship between temperature and tempers. As the temps climb, the tempers get shorter. Couple that with the stress sure to be felt by all your fellow rats stuck in this cage, it looks like things can be quite volatile.

Think of all the stressors your fellow rats (apologies to VMI cadets) will be experiencing. No job. No home. No money. No air conditioning. No TV. No beer. No relief. No self respect after the bankers and the feds stole everything from you, and lied to you about how they were going to bail us all out.

Then they'll see "Il Duce Nero" living in his six floor, 132 room mansion. They'll remember the 35 bathrooms when they duck behind the bushes alongside the freeway. They'll remember the promise of "Change" and "Hope". The promise of the end of politics as usual.

And the bitterness will grow.

So far, as tragic as it has been, the people who haven't been able to think clearly have killed themselves and their families. That doesn't do anything about the problem.

Eventually someone is going to wake up in the morning, and look at their wife and sleeping kids and say to themselves, "It's not my fault. It's not their fault. I'm going to get the ones responsible."

It will be one case. An isolated case. It will be reported on the news far and wide that an angry man went on a shooting rampage in a state capital, local bank, or federal office somewhere. Maybe he'll be reported to have been on Xanax and wearing a gorilla costume.

The next day, we'll see another. And then several more. The cops will baracade the offices of state and federal offices, and then someone will get smart and go to ZabaSearch and Google Maps and show up at a government official's home or business.

A rent-a-cop from Blackwater or some other private military contractor will be hired by the now freaked out, surviving "representatives of the people". One of these clowns will get videod by a citizen with a cellphone beating or shooting some hapless passerby.

All the folks who had been sitting on the fence will now be off the fence and swinging at anything that looks like a cop or is wearing a suit and wingtips. The local cops will beat feet just like the LA cops did during the Rodney King Riots.

Keep watching the news people. I hope these trends don't start to happen, but if they do, you know to go to ground.

Or...maybe take advantage of the situation.....

Bares watching carefully. It will likely start randomly and likely expand at a good rate. It's going to be a long hot summer I suspect...

Yer on the right track there Catman. Like Riverwalker and myself have said, watch the big cities for this stuff to start happening first, particularly New Yawk, LA, and Detroit.....
