Not a day goes by now that you’re not being bombarded with news reflecting the following subjects. The inevitable death of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency is getting closer. Sporadic senseless violence being an everyday occurrence and is spreading across the nation. Violence by police on the citizens is now considered the norm and barely being reported. Freedom has all but collapsed in the nation and rounding out the positive outlook you’re being told that the air, food and water are poisonous. Has anybody been asking WTF is going on? How can this all be happening at the same time?
The once Disney like nation now appears to be mirroring a closer resemblance to Gotham city from a Batman Movie. Am I the only one realizing all this at the same time can’t be by coincidence? It’s coming from all angles… all at once. Any chance this is a method being implicated in efforts to get people so confused they don’t know which way to turn. I don’t know but judging from the more than 100 visitors over the past year I think so and it’s working damn well. For some denial my be a wonderful option… that is until one ounce of reality kicks in then it goes to hell in a handbag.
What might amount to be a large rusty nail in the coffin of the western nation was made public earlier this week. China recently announced on their local news medias that it’s no longer in their best interest to continue purchasing U.S. debt. To amplify matters worse they have petitioned undermining the petrodollar by pricing oil futures on the Shanghai Futures Exchange in Yuan.
I’m confident their first attempt will be met with failure but it does send a very important message. They’re getting ever closer to being able to back their bets in gold and thus starting to flex a bit of muscle. I’m confident most of my readers already know it’s only a matter of time until this happens. One should understand this is a normal occurrence as no nations currency can remain the reserve forever. It’s only a paradigm shift that has been repeated all thought history.
Those prepared for this shift might even flourish but for those who are not I honestly expect to see carnage on a biblical scale… and I encourage you to be thinking about food when I mention this expectation. These paradigms don’t kill wealth but instead merely transfer wealth to the minute percentage on the masses that were prepared for the shift. As they say tomorrow is going to be an interesting day as the lifestyle adjustments are going to be mind boggling… and so many just won’t be able to cut it.
Let’s move on to the next catastrophe that’s making a lot of noise. It was finally admitted the fall out was much greater in the Fukushima disaster. Dr. Shunichi Yamashita was kind of spreading the shita little bit (just a matter of a little spacing that’s all) when he first released the information about the amount of radiation fallout from the site over in Fukushima. Now the pacific has become almost a no swim zone for its inhabitants as so many are dying off from the toxic fallout. Fish bleeding from eyes, gills and several other areas. Dolphins, whales actually all mammals in the sea are facing similar issues. Crustaceans in fact all arthropods should now be avoided when it comes to being consumed for fear of this radiation. Tuna forget about eating it now. Several sailors who routinely take the cross Pacific voyage have reported what used to be teaming with life is now annulled of marine life and taken on a sort of apocalyptic appearance.
Currently the most dangerous of all operations is underway. Removing the fuel rods and if anything goes wrong lookout California as you’ll be evacuating your state. So again I bring up WTF is going on?
I sure haven’t got all the answers… nobody does but one of the best ideas is being self-reliant as much as possible. Owning good land suitable for growing is perhaps the best way to survive what lies dead ahead pardon the pun. Growing and then bartering for what others grow.
It’s the way things have been working here for centuries… and working rather well I might add. We trade eggs for other things, our neighbors trade peppers for what they want and so the gears in the community mesh nicely. Future supply chain issues…we don’t have any as the stuff comes from a few miles away. It’s still common to see food arriving to town daily from a horse drawn wagon. Western nations have an average of 1500 miles from start to shelf. Petrol issues grid issues millions are going to starve make no mistake about this… It will occur.
Systems of the western nations mesh together with precision that mirrors a Swiss watch. Yes it’s an example of exactness at its finest. The problem with a Swiss watch type of system is everything is so precise and the tolerances are so close that if just one tiny tooth fractures the entire system grinds to a halt. That’s gambling at hi odds people, odds way out of my comfort zone.
l want to use a transmission in the following analogy and hopefully bring to light an important point that you really need to grasp. I’m using a transmission because it’s an excellent example of what a “close tolerance functional system” is all about.
WATCH THE NEIGHBORING GEARS!!!
A YouTube That’s Worth a Thousand Words (Contains Some Bad Language)
Of course America would have to be considered the planetary gear of this system (at least at the present time). When the planetary gear of a transmission sheers (fails) because of the close tolerances involved every preceding gear sheers (fails) along with it but suffers a lesser degree of damage. The gears of our transmission represent the various nations of the world. All nations of the world are meshed together to a certain degree so it’s that degree of engagement (Location to the Planetary gear) which actually becomes an important factor to be considered.
The planetary gear loses almost every tooth. First gear might be missing half its teeth second perhaps one third of its teeth all the way back to fourth gear which is only missing a couple of teeth. You see the further away from the planetary gear the less damage will be inflicted. You can’t take away something from a person that they never first had to begin with… that’s impossible to do.
For us our location in this transmission of the world happens to be Cabrera on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Here we’re cruising in over drive the furthest distance away from the planetary gear. For over a decade I haven’t noticed a difference in the local people. That’s how 30 plus years of living boots on the ground has taught me to gauge things.
Look at it as being the oil temp. gauge of your transmission. If the oil (the people) that lubricates the gears (the nations) starts to change temperature and run hot (Changes in mood) it won’t be long before it flies apart with a violent internal explosion (revolution). I’m downshifting for now and settling in for a rum and fruit juice. Till next time this is Barry in DR.
