Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

One of the college kids came by to pick up some stuff. I figured it was a great time to rotate some canned goods and Ramen. We filled up his trunk and away he went.

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

IMO opinion any attack on Iran will be though proxies and not direct strikes by the Saudis. They have too much to lose by being direct. We are still in the proxy fight stage but it does not have to stay there. I don't think the US can do much more with sanctions than they are already doing. They ca...

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

The bottom line is: How far will the Gulf States go to protect their lifeblood? Iran is counting on them backing down and lying down. I don't think that this calculation is correct. If the Gulf States, Iraq and Iran get caught up in a full scale war the shocks to the world's energy supply will be li...

Re: Noticed in the last week

Perhaps Satan is rising from the abyss and preparing the world for the final battle of Armageddon? But before we go there... I would ask others if they see the same thing. If they don't then I would maybe seek a medical cause such as migraine headache auras or maybe contamination in the eyes of body...

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

They are saying now likely several months, however they are releasing some of their stockpile which is less than 40 days of exports. So it appears as though Iran has followed through with their threats. The Saudi led Sunni Gulf State Coalition is not powerful enough to take on Iran. I'd say at this ...

I imagine Texas and the Dakotas will be spinning up. I imagine that will help the US economy. Probably help Iran too.
Doubtful on Iran. They have dropped do much over the years that they export just a little bit more than the UK.

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

IT's up 19% now. I'd say that qualifies as "going ape shit".

The big question for the US is does that help us or hurt us? 15 years ago it would have caused an immediate recession. These days I am not so sure. It may even be helpful.

It was a mistake for China to open the door. It's going to take a while to close it. I'd say the "mistake" was choosing to be assholes. There is a price to pay. One pays it sooner or later.

I will never be as awesome as Zantra. Sadly I put my 22 can on a 22 rifle and pistol. I mean I could take it off and put it on an AR shorty conversion to 22lr but that would mean buying an AR shorty conversion to 22lr, which would actually cost more than the current ones I own. Hopefully this hole i...

Re: Pig Ebola virus Sends Shock Waves Through Global Food Chain

It slipped in unnoticed but the Chinese have cancelled all tariffs on pork and soy. This is a "good faith" gesture for negotiating with the US over tariffs and has nothing to do with their population starving this winter.

I don't think the panic will start for reals until August 2020. That is when all politicians will be checking the wind with a finger to come up with their latest and greatest views.

Re: Rising Tensions in the Persian Gulf

That is extremely bad news for the Saudis. My bet is they are feverishly plotting escalation or extraction. There won't be any middle ground. One well lit match and it could be game on between Iran and the Gulf States. There won't be any winners from that conflict and there will be plenty of losers.
