Greeting Me Drooges and Droogettes
Went out today.. didn’t want to but the Mizzuz needed to do a few errands.
Observations that thereof as follows:
Complete shitshow. No buttwipe, no soup, no bread, no paper towels. Many rows of what normally would-be-packed areas of food supply completely ransacked. It wasn’t this bad during hurricane season. Meds and such, so-so. Still had a lot of OTC pain meds and cold remedies… that’ll change if shit goes pear shaped ever further.
Local Publix Market:
No panic buying, however, NO paper stuff. No napkins, wet wipes, butt wipe, paper towels, paper plates. Nada. A complete wipe out. Also, interestingly, NO eggs…. Like ZERO. Three days ago I went and they had plenty, to the point I bought three racks of 30 eggs each (The giant large egg racks) and I’m glad I did… Apparently, I’ve been 2 steps ahead of the Horde thank God. They had racks of boiled Easter eggs replacing the normal egg racks… now also, interestingly, the “boutique” eggs (free range, raised by hand and kindness on organic feed eggs) were in stock, but at $8.99 a dozen, they’re only going to be there until people really get desperate.
Maaaaan… how to describe it. “People of WalMart” is one thing, but for the most part, the people I saw out today were total bottom feeders. I mean we’re talking lowlifes. Scum. The majority of people looked bad, and smelled worse. It was awful. Bad tats, horrible grills, and even worse attitudes. I bailed before I could get into a ruckus, seeings that the majority of these Mad Dog 20-20 guzzlers realized that –something- was amiss, and were shopping… I felt like I needed a shower after being around them.
The realization that “The Horde” as I’ll refer to them, are/is awake makes me even more aware as to the home defense level. Booby traps, both non-lethal and “Head Removing” are now in play. Really makes I had invested in a couple rolls of mil-spec concertina back a few years back… (15 rolls for $700)
Got a hunch, depending on Fed-Gov and the Grandmaster Cheeto, that things are going to be ‘stable’ FWIW for the next few. It’s no completely frantic, but slowly getting there. The fact that the scum-o’-the-earth have come to the surface, and being disappointed in their gathering, I fully expect things to go a bit kinetic in the next round of dumbassery, unless it all blows over.
I’m waiting now on Intel from my bro who’s a Hospital Cop in Penn. He’s a –great guy– and a true exception to the “all cops are swine” concept. He’s my bro, and will be reporting to me on the sit-rep tomorrow… he’s actually really concerned… so we’ll see.
