Bracketquant. Y'all CLEARLY have a life that is more or less complete without TB2K.

The Boss is no where NEAR as fortunate. Yes he has the pups, and I BELIEVE he's working from home. BUT, he can't just get up on a Friday Morning and decide, "Ain't gonna look in on the Board until Monday evening. They just going to have to get on without me." THAT is NOT going to happen. Which means that he is internalizing all this crap that we are posting or commenting about. This, though, is unhealthy as sin.

I am FORTUNATE that I have a bride who outweighs me by some (not much) but who out SHOOTS me by an appreciable margin.
She works HARD for a living and has asked me to filter the world for her. So I do filter what I tell her. When it looks like it's Tuesday and the trains are gonna park on Thursday night, I get to tell her so we can figure out how to get things up to where we can plan on eating ALL the way through the disruption.

Other than that, she MAKES me, as we used to say when I was a MOD here, "Back away from the chalupa. At least for 2-4 days, when it becomes obvious that I have hit my saturation point."
As long as she outshoots me, she gets to tell me it's time to put the board on ignore and lets go do some REAL LIFE SCHTUFF!

If I could, I'd consider cloning her, wiping her memory and send Dennis the clone. Science ain't THERE yet.



The BEST thing we can do for the Boss would be to NOT create trash he has to sort out here. No picking fights with folks. No EARNING a trip to TIO. No being more of an ass than we USUALLY are. Basically, tread a LITTLE lightly here. NOT saying walk around on eggshells, cuz' THAT makes it ****ing NASTY for EVERYBODY. Just try to make sure that the Drama Llama stays in the corral for a while. WHEN "the STUFF" breaks loose we are ALL going to need to be armed up, tribed up, loaded and LOCKED to the gills, and ready to shoot, a LOT.
Perhaps the BEST thing we could do is largely become Dennis' filter.

If nasty posts break out, maybe there could be only a select few who would hit the report button, to get his attention. Dennis and other mods would then only have to monitor a much smaller fraction of threads/posts.

TB2K is basically my only source of news. The vast majority of threads I do not click on, as they don't have anything to do with my life. The war in Ukraine thread is a good example.

Kath, don't hold back. Tell us how you REALLY feel about "that other side".

I deal with them every day unfortunately. They are at all levels of society. Had I not learned to be very self-controlled I would probably be doing life at Lowell Annex here in Florida (max security for women). People are by and large stupid to the point of failure to deserve their existence. Oh well. God is allowing this situation to bring something to a head I suppose. So I let Him control the wheel. Just because there are certain idiots that think they are in charge doesn't mean they are correct.

Explain how it will be exactly like Nazi Germany.

One of the first, and the most important, things Germany did was gun confiscation. Americans have approximately 500,000,000 guns. They have ALL the cards?
At the moment - till they outlaw them - and they will.

Don't turn them in - shut your SS off - among other things.

Send out weaponized illegals to arrest you. You kill a few for sure but they are after population reduction - big time - so they win there.

Anybody who today uses one to defend himself - 99% of the time is still arrested and charged.

They control the weather the food the laws - the list is very long.

See anybody actually lift one of those guns to stop the theft of the election?

Bottom line - if you really think about it - they have a lot more than what I mentioned - frightening - this is Satanic evil - in play - growing everyday.

You need to distance yourself mentally from current events. It's about to get weirder, uglier, and more stressful than you can possibly imagine. I STRONGLY suggest reading Selco Begovic's The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival. It's not a how-to manual of mechanics like water storage and perimeter security. It is, instead, primarily about the mindset needed to deal with your normal world falling into continual danger, primal violence, and total destruction.

Bottom line: those who can steel themselves psychologically and adapt to their world torn asunder will survive. Those who can't, won't.

Thanks for the nudge Roger.

Just ordered this, which I should have done way back - got his SHTF Survival Boot Camp too.

Was just thinking about him a couple of days ago.

The world is ending this coming weekend (24th, 25th). Can you hold out that long?
I rate this coming Feast of Trumpets (26/27) as being the most likely date (“no man knows the day or the hour“ when it begins...) for the sudden “end of the world“ here on Earth for those who await Christ returning for His Bride... as we are already deep into Trib territory. You think we have it bad here? Look around at the rest of the world!

I was pleasantly shocked to see commentators openly talking about the dangers of socialism.
Maybe gloves are coming off and people are reaching their tipping point- though I'm nor sure what that entails at this point.

Some won't get why I'm posting this this exchange from Star Trek TNG, but some will...


Kevin Uxbridge : [of Rishon] I saw her broken body. I went insane. My hatred exploded. And in an instant of grief... I destroyed the Husnock.

Doctor Beverly Crusher : Why did you try to hide this from all of us? Was it out of guilt for not helping Rishon and the others when they were alive?

Kevin Uxbridge : No, no, no, no, no, you-you don't understand the scope of my crime. I didn't kill just one Husnock, or a hundred, or a thousand. I killed them all. All Husnock, everywhere. - Are 11,000 people worth... 50 billion? Is the love of a woman worth the destruction of an entire species?

I truly sympathize with good landlords.

While there are many many decent people who rent, overall the people who own their homes appear to have more motivation and discipline in their lives. If they own it, they will generally try to take care of it. Since they likely would like to stay in the same place, as their neighbors also would, it makes a lot of sense to treat the neighbors kindly.

There are enough people out there who care nothing about anything other than themselves and what's theirs. I imagine that many do not make good renters, nor neighbors. Perhaps they see themselves as being ever transient, with no need to be connected to any current surroundings.

For example, notice the calls for Fauci to stand trial. Also notice all of the secrets revealed about Physer.
Yeah, I see Holder and Hunter in prison. I see Piglosi in prison. I see Schiff in prison.

There are a lot of people like that everywhere. Not just people who rent. People in government and I'm not just talking about those that float to the top. A lot of gov clerks are megalomaniacs of one flavor or the other and yet others who are so apathetic it is a wonder they even bother showing up for work. There are decent people out in the world, save your energy for them but don't expect paybacks or pay forwards. Lots less heartache that way.

I got up this morning and realized, I am still here. So obviously God's plan for me is still in play. I guess I can take comfort in that I was chosen for this particular place and time. I sincerely hope that when my part comes, I will have the strength and wisdom to carry it out.

Every one of us has a line in the sand, a breaking point beyond which there is no return. I don't think I've hit mine yet, but I often ask...is this it Lord? I haven't heard a "Yes" yet, so until that time I will make some popcorn, pop a cold Coke and watch the show. There are somethings that I CAN control and somethings that are totally out of my control. I'm not going to stress over the things I have no control over. I'm putting those things into some very capable hands. If He needs me to help, He knows where to find me.

That being said (fair warning), if you touch or harm one of my precious grandbabies, this grandma will go berserker on you. I've had a great life and will not mind in the least to take a few out with me.

Few people like the bullshit going on, this includes many dems. But we've got to keep our cool, for if we go off prematurely it will mean jail time or being dead. Keeping a cool head keeps ones senses and sensibility very keen so if something really bad does happen, we will have a better idea what to do. In times of war or other disaster, I'd say the emotionally distraught are the first to perish. Those fully aware of what's going on with a plan of sorts will survive.

I suggest all that are wound up to just chill. Do not do anything stupid.

I don't believe that many of those gov workers are apathetic. I believe they have to lay low, or their lives would be made a living hell by their superiors. Or worse, their jobs would get cancelled.

The day that you recognize that you are part of God's plan, is the day when your part comes. There should be no delay in carrying it out. Just remember that His plan is not man's plan.

They hyper-speed disclosure at the end is the very best part.

As to the challenges of life, I've already lived through my own worst-case scenario hell on earth, lost everything a person can lose, lived out of my car, been through cancer, death and more. Whatever happens, happens. I'm not in control. I'm just along for the ride.

I'm sitting in a condo at the edge of the woods. I get a lot of joy out of watching the trees sway in the breeze.

It's true. A good time to enjoy whatever you've got left to enjoy.

Red delicious apple season kicks off this Sunday in SW lower MI. The hailstorms did a number on the crop this year, apparently, but hopefully there will still be some good ones around.

Leaves will start changing color again. The weather will be choice in the upper 60s - lower 70s for a while.

If one actively spends one's time in seeking out all of the bullsh*t being dumped on themselves, of course they will believe that they can't take much more. They key is to not actively seek the bullsh*t, so that there will be much less of it in one's life.

Why do people bring such misery upon themselves? The left doesn't want just themselves to be miserable. They want others to be miserable, too. Don't play their mind games.
a good portion of this is ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

however there is an INFINITELY LARGER portion that is similarly ABSOLUTE TRUTH. lets spell it out AGAIN:

we are here becasue we
ALLOWED IT
TOLERATED IT
ACCEPTED IT

just as we are seeing the huge increases in VIOLENT CRIME secondary to the Soros appointed DA's "soft on crime/defund the police" mindset - so also will you see huge increases of the jackbootery by the thugs above you.

is it - or is it not - a UNIVERSAL TRUTH that "what you REWARD you get more of"?

we have on this board - right now - a thread that speaks to the issue of "not saying anything to anyone becasue you risk personal injury violence and death - basically simply for SPEAKING TRUTH - and offending somebody".

here are some real questions:

WHAT DOES IT TAKE to get you to understand that you are exceedingly close to NONEXISTENCE?
do you quite honestly BELIEVE that your condition will somehow be "improved" by more "going along to get along"?
do you honestly NOT SEE that you are DEAD together with your progeny - REGARDLESS of what you course of action you chose in terms of resistance?

IN WHAT UNIVERSE ARE YOU PEOPLE LIVING?
do you truthfully NOT SEE that you are IN the gulag RFN?

you are GOING to buy the ticket - they will have it NO OTHER WAY. you'd be MUCH better off to acknowledge that reality and realize you're gonna HAVE TO take the ride

as for me - I'll go down (likely very quickly) ON MY FEET rather than as a groveling POS
I will NOT live on my knees
I will NOT COMPLY
as for those of you who view these things differently, may your shackles rest lightly on your shoulders. may you be given the ability and clarity of thought to construct believable lies as your grandchildren grovel in the waste and rubble at your feet and ask "HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO US"

Exactly! There's always something to enjoy. Yes, the problems will still be there, and still need consideration and monitoring, but they should not consume your whole day's thinking or one will literally go insane. That's why we need to focus on the enjoyments of life more than the depressing shit, if for no other reason, to maintain sanity.

You mentioned apples, ours are just turning ripe and they are so good.

coz the gov can only deal with the onesy-twosy wacked out nutjob. When that one nutjob becomes an organized (or unorganized) group of likeminded people past the tipping point....... then they respond with more J6 tactics.

It's all they got, given they're keeping the "appearance" of elections and "peaceful transfer of power".

Oh, last year was great. I got in early on the Red Delicious harvest; one apple I got was almost the size of a Coke can. Sweet as candy, too. I hope they're anywhere NEAR that good again.

I get stressed at times but I have to tell myself God is in control, I’m not But have wanted to allow my anger to get the best of me. I get out in nature enjoying the little bit of beauty we have left. Watch the birds eat from my window and tell myself God takes care of them and I am as well. I get enjoyment from my dog and cat and love them as much as I can. Take walks with my dog. They have no idea other than what they sense in what your feeling. The people drive like nuts on the roads and I stay home more and try to avoid the times when the streets are the busiest. I read holocaust books because I want to know how people survived all this and tolerated all that they did and yet some persevered while many did not. And I have to start reading my Bible but Satan keeps interfering! I refuse to be on Satans side!

let me be crystal clear. I completly agree with this mindset. what I have difficulty accepting is that WHEN this balloon goes up there are people who will be completely and utterly accepting of it and do absolute N O T H I N G for themselves and others in their care.

I have a HUGE problem with that. AM I THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO FEELS LIKE THIS?

we ALL acknowledge that GOD IS in control. what we do NOT seem to acknowledge is that we ALSO have a part to play in that.

you can have all the FAITH you need. but with the out the DOING PART - YOURS - you may well be in for a huge surprise. Noah BUILT the ark and Joseph SAVED (prepped?) for seven years.

In times of war or other disaster, I'd say the emotionally distraught are the first to perish. Those fully aware of what's going on with a plan of sorts will survive.
major truth. - here's another - if someone FAILS to plan they PLAN to FAIL. we can look right here on this thread and see some of this. with a bit of effort we can see those who will NOT ACKNOWLEDGE what's ahead. I see that as tragedy in the making

once again . . . AM I the only one who feels thinks sees that as a DISTINCT possibility?

I’m currently on a pretty decent dose of steroids for sinus infection. Last night I pretty much went off into “I’m more pissed and dangerous than you are” land.

Box cutter, check. All those freaking Chewey boxes, check. I tore down boxes for a while with extreme vigor. Then cut them smaller for good measure. That finally took the edge off.

What really ticked me off? The person in the room going “you’re going to cut yourself.” Oooooo. Told him that I had worked on extremely dangerous farm equipment since the age of five and was quite sure things would be FINE! I was totally OUT of control. But the box destruction was therapeutic and then “they burn better if they are left whole.” A voice rather unlike mine said, I’m NOT BURNING THEM.

Almost had to acquire a sharper blade to be more humane. Lol. But I am seriously on edge. But I did get a lot of the WHY DO WE SAVE THE BOXES FOR 20 YEAR OLD STUFF out of here and intend to continue.

On the other hand, I think it’s time to hide the TP again because we are running low on my designated stock levels. I will decide this later.

You know what angry women do. They clean. I suggest finding an inner talent like this.

Men: ARE YOUR TOOLS OFF THE COUNTER YET? For Heaven’s sake get that stuff organized today. There WILL be an inspection. Or perhaps I’ll organize them for you. Bawahaha. There are just so many things like this to turn to while you wait on “the time”.

It's the waiting for "it" to hit the fan that frazils me.

Worse yet is since I woke up to the FACT that the years have broken my body to the place where I can no long grab the overpacked backpack and hump to the sounds of the gunfire, I know it will have to come to me.

We've already passed to d*m many different "its" that I would have thought would have triggered the people to take it to the PTB for real.

The rise of the Tea Party used the ballot box and made a difference, but the RINO's actively destroyed the movement and took back the gains made then. The rise of Trump made a difference, but for an even shorter period and the bounce back took us far deeper into the sh*thole than before him.

The country continues to drift deeper down the porcelain facility as the politicos, the permanent deep state, judiciary, bankers, media and the rest of those dedicated to the New World Order leftists' model have continued to destroy every good part of the republic and the morality of the people. The pace has now increased to daily doses of oversteps, lies and multiple tiered justice.

With each new overstep and imposition of the "right of the state" to dictate and the collapse of the citizens into acceptance of the removal of the God Given Rights memorialized in the Constitution, I thought we are there and they would stand up like men and fight, as a whole we've rolled over and said not now.

Frankly IMHO the uprising isn't going to happen. Instead it will be the continued collapse of the American experiment we older ones grew up in into a government that does the will of the handful of elites and forces the people to submit or die.

Nothing short of the total collapse of the hard infrastructure that enables the citizens today will move them into action of any kind short of electronic farts on the few avenues of expression that they are allowed.
