Yesterday evening, as I was prepping for movement to the in-laws for Ye Olde Weekend, (Mom came home, Dad’s still in Rehab) Serbian War Criminal came by. This -right after- Cowboy who had called at lunchtime.
Cowboy asked if I could part with some mor ammunition.
Specifically 5.56mm “Shit’s getting deep compadre” he said, in the largest understatement of the decade…
Cowboy made a stop by at 15:00 and, as things are, I broke open my LAST can of M-855 genuine military issue (don’t ask) steel core 5.56mm and hooked him up with 3 mags worth of stripper clips and the speedloader. Told him that he could get me on the back end if needed as seeing that shit is out of control, I figgered it’s time that the good party favors be ‘at the ready.’
Then, Serbian War Criminal came over. He looked like absolute shit. Asked him if he was o.k. and he was all “No bro…. is not good… is fucked. Have not slept in 2 days, no food.”
Usually he’s pretty fucking upbeat, so I kinda had a hunch what was bugging him. He then started telling me “Bro, I try to tell co-workers… you know…….” Having grown up in a world of civil war, deprivation and utter horror SWC is pretty much sure that we’ve crossed the point of no return. “Is just like back home…. fucking civil war come soon… fuckers too stupid to understand…”
Apparently he’s been trying to tell anyone and everyone on what’s going down… He’s a lot more certain than most because of what he’s seen up close and personal. I mean I personally watch Iraq tear itself apart, and the fucktards here in the states are all like “well that’s because they’re stupid savage Arabs!” or “it could never happen here.”
Let me tell ya gang… When the Serbian, who was already positioning hisself to move out to the mountains of Tennessee tells you he might not be around much longer, that shits accelerating and he’s gonna scoot before the shit hits, it’s a pretty good indicator of just -how bad- things are going…
So, we went back and forth about the news, bullshit and all… he wants to try to go to Borepatch’s Blogshoot at the Meatspace in Manatee on the 14th… we’ll see if he’s even still here. Told me “Florida… is peninsula… is deathtrap to be caught here. Everyone coming up from south, trying to get to main area… is not feasible.” I agree… at least here on the west coast we wouldn’t have to worry about the critters headed North from Miami (thank you everglades) but still…bad Juju. He also talked about the fact that Florida is now Trump’s home-of-record since he bailed on New York and IF the ‘truth and reconciliation’ savages or If it because there’s a ‘government in exile’ as he put it, Florida could be cut off.
Either way, I’ma thinking HARD about a relocation meselves. The new job is ‘portable’… I only need a hi-speed line and I can set up ANYWHERE in the nation in a 12 hour pinch.
Sell the house while the market is hot and boogie.
Start out like SWC w/an RV first, head to the yonder hills and wait.
Tough to say.
I wanted to die in place of old age.
They may not let me.
Be the Gray Man
See you all on the 14th
