I’m back. I’m not happy to be back, but the signs and portents are bad and I find I now need a place to collect my thoughts (even better would be a place to discuss them but I don’t have the energy or time to go around soliciting attention, until then I’ll let it build by word-of-blog).
Some of the recent signs and portents: the Gates of Vienna counterjihad blog just got taken down under suspicious circumstances, the coverage of the Algerian hostage crisis has been very systematically slanted, the Democratic and Republican politicians have been, respectively, even more evil and stupid than usual, the economic circumstances I see with my own eyes go unreported or are contradicted in the media, the movies released in the last year and advertised to be released this year all point in a certain direction, and certain people are no longer attempting to hide their agendas. I’ll go into all of this over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I have taken personal steps to make myself “antifragile” (look it up, I won’t say “Google it” because I have a grudge against Google): securing a 2.75% fixed rate refinancing for as much money as I could take out of my house, buying a few hundred ounces of silver (in the form recommended by Peter Schiff), and obtaining two different forms of home security (both are 3-letter words and involve licenses).
Fasten your seatbelts.
