I know you are but what am I?

These dots here are just begging to be connected.

Urban Survival has been talking about quakes and gold and food.

With just about a week to go before we get to the "twin earthquakes" of mid December that are supposed to leave at least one of the two areas involved with isolation and substantial damage, we are also continuing to monitor the other memes that have been in recent ALTA reports.

One that I find fascinating is the whole concept of rationing/shortages of this or that. And it's a mixed bag of news. Some sample first that may be 'food' news:


Confused By Gold?

Me too. Things are looking stranger than strange here on the gold front. First, one of my buddies is trying to take delivery on some 'mini' contracts and seems like he's being stonewalled by the exchange (more on this if he doesn't get his gold). And, I hear that delivery requests are way up for December.


With the 'window' for our 'twin quakes' with massive impacts due Dec 10 to 15th (roughly) we can't help but notice the 5.1 shaker in southern California last night. I figure maybe next weekend we will have our first BIG one. Belted in? Things nailed down?
Speaking of Big Ones, compare and contrast (via Lord Stirling):
Gold going to permanent backwardation means that gold is no longer for sale at any price, whether it is quoted in dollars, yens, euros, or Swiss francs. The situation is exactly the same as it has been for years: gold is not for sale at any price quoted in Zimbabwe currency, however high the quote is. To put it differently, all offers to sell gold are being withdrawn, whether it concerns newly mined gold, scrap gold, bullion gold or coined gold. I dubbed this event that has cast its long shadow forward for many a year, the last contango in Washington -- contango being the name for the condition opposite to backwardation (namely, that of a positive basis), and Washington being the city where the Paper-mill of the Potomac, the Federal Reserve Board, is located. This is a tongue-in-cheek way of saying that the jig in Washington is up. The music has stopped on the players of 'musical chairs'. Those who have no gold in hand are out of luck. They won't get it now through the regular channels. If they want it, they will have to go to the black market.


Once entrenched, backwardation in gold means that the cancer of the dollar has reached its terminal stages. The progressively evaporating trust in the value of the irredeemable dollar can no longer be stopped.


If the governments of the great trading nations had really wanted to save the world from a catastrophic collapse of world trade, then they should have opened their mints to gold. Now gold backwardation has caught up with us and shut down the free flow of gold in the system. This will have catastrophic consequences. Few people realize that the shutting down of the gold trade, which is what is happening, means the shutting down of world trade. This is a financial earthquake measuring ten on the Greenspan scale, with epicenter at the Comex in New York, where the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center once stood. It is no exaggeration to say that this event will trigger a tsunami wiping out the prosperity of the world.
Sounds like a huge financial earthquake did occur in the depths, and the waves are probably spreading out as we sit here merrily going about our holiday business. Tra la la.

Oh by the way, do you have food on hand? The authorities would like to know (must read to believe).
On Monday, December 1, a SWAT team with semi-automatic rifles entered
the private home of the Stowers family in LaGrange, Ohio, herded the
family onto the couches in the living room, and kept guns trained on
parents, children, infants and toddlers, from approximately 11 AM to
8 PM. The team was aggressive and belligerent. The children were
quite traumatized. At some point, the “bad cop” SWAT team was
relieved by another team, a “good cop” team that tried to befriend
the family. The Stowers family has run a very large, well-known food
cooperative called Manna Storehouse.
Bad Stowers family. Bad Bad Bad. FOR RUNNING A FOOD COOPERATIVE.

W. T. F. ??????????????????????????????

So there you have your quakes and gold and food dots connected. Sorry that it's not a pretty picture.

But wait there's more, and it gets worse.

You may have read or heard that one of the things Israeli soldiers do at checkpoints is force Palestinians to snitch on people in exchange for getting through. This technique works especially well if you have a sick child that will die unless you get him to the hospital, for instance. All you have to do is offer up a name or two. This utterly evil, demented, Luciferian contempt puts people in impossible positions.

Is that joy coming to our world soon? Just imagine if you had to snitch on somebody to get out of your Martial Law barricaded city for some reason, say, for example, if our currency crashed and you had to go stay with relatives living somewhere else because you ran out of money and food and could no longer support your self or your family.
The war on terror is a psyop. Beginning with [but not ending with - ed.] Muslim men, everyone will be forced into selling-out to the Americans or facing American bombs. [ guessed it...Americans! - ed.] The United States confronts the world with a large gun in one hand and large sacks of money in the other hand. Every man of fighting age will have to choose between wealth and resistance. Will he choose to provide his family with a life of luxury, or with a lifetime of strife? Will you take America’s side in its war against Islam for enormous wealth, or will you fight for God, family and country to your last breath? [Will you? - ed.]
What if the money becomes worthless?

The best thing that could happen for the world would be the total collapse of the dollar and hyper-inflation in the US. This alone would make the dollar about as valuable as a confederate dollar, making it harder to purchase more mercenary armies with large sacks of money.

Either sell your soul for money and accept your place within this evil system, or be marked for life as one to be hunted and harassed. Sounds an awful lot like “the mark of the beast,” doesn’t it? Or is it just the normal American life, the so-called “dream,” to have to choose a life of subservience to the beast, as opposed to a lifetime of persecution? Haven’t we all been faced with that choice at some point in our lives? Did you sell-out in your struggle to reach the middle class?
So if the dollar collapses, it will cause untold economic suffering but will also take a tool out of the psyops toolbox.

Otherwise, it's more psyops, more war, more suffering.

Either way, suffering is G U A R A N T E E D. Us, them. What's the difference? To the people playing these geopolitical games, believe me, there is no difference between an American and any other poor schlub on the face of the earth. We are all pawns. The sooner Americans realize that fact, the better.

I used to work on Wall St, on the stock exchange, literally living there and sleeping in a trading booth for 6 months, when I started to understand global capital flows. And making more money. (I once almost made so much money on an inside options trade one I decided not to make, there was no withstanding the next temptation. So I left.

Anyhow, what I learned was, "The Money Has To Go Somewhere." The monetary system, day to day, was basically finite, and only so much can be absorbed by each organ. A large drop in the Far East stock markets would cause a rise somewhere else. That's not true anymore.

First, capital is being created 100x faster than "normal." Second, the system is open, unmeasurable, and can absorb a perhaps infinite amount of capital flow. Such that the yield on 3-month Treasuries went negative today. All bets are off.

Municipalities, states, and groups will probably issue their own micro-currencies, which are backed by things of value.

Thanks for surfacing these stories, esp. the gold.

Thank *you*. You'd never know I have an MBA because finance makes my eyes glaze over immediately. Anyway, I found something in the last month or two about local bartering systems and how to set them up. I will post it again if I can put my hands on it.

As it happens, I almost have an MBA too. Didn't put in for the final credits. Cognitive dissonance, not wanting to be known as one, I guess.

I have visions of a neighborhood seed exchange up on the playground of the unoccupied grade school near our house. By all means post on the barter systems you found. Barter is the most revolutionary of acts.

So true with the cognitive dissonance and the MBA. Kind of like, Sorry, but I don't want to make sausages anymore.

I will keep looking for the bartering thing.
