The economic situation is slowly worsening, signed and delivered home sales are way down, job creation is still hampered by regulation and taxation by the (people s ?) government, and taxes (on income) are about to go up, starting in January. Businesses are getting ready to hunker down even more. A fact of life is that about 20% of the population is lazy. Each workplace varies, some jobs have 35% lazy people, some, less than 2%, depends on where you work. Right now unemployment is at about 10%, and while many of those people are definitely NOT lazy, I bet a high percentage are. Often it is the lazy ones, that 20%, give or take, that are “let-go” at the onset of an economic slow-down. This makes perfect business sense. It widens profits and holds the good, exceptionally hard, efficient workers in employment. Many have been collecting unemployment for two years, based on much of what I hear, they are holding out for easy, high paying jobs, that are better than their current situations of 365 days per year of “paid”vacation. So they sit and draw a check. “Drawing a check” has essentially become a new industry unto itself. Retail businesses have noticed spikes in sales, higher than the historical spikes, now at the beginning of each month. And check “drawers” have become more ravenous in their need to do less, and draw “more”. Disability “claims” are way up. Over 40 million Americans are now on food stamps. And it is the producers who prop all this up, who hold it in play so that the “drawers” can continue to sustain their 365 day paid vacation lifestyles.
Because this depression began with the housing crisis, many Americans are not willing to move. It would mean selling, or abandoning their homes for available work further away. During the last (government induced) depression in the 1930’s, whole swaths of the population left their families to be able to send money home, to keep them alive. Men were men. Todays boobus domesticus male providers are (many but not all) part of the sub genus, homo metro-sexus. They cannot leave, they have “house-chores” that the wife has demanded they perform, or fantasy football league gatherings, that they might “miss”, if they should seek work out-of-state/region. Homo.Metro,Sexus is certainly a castrated mule, but not yoked to labor or taxation, rather, yoked to his own mind telling him that comfort and whim are senior to production, preparation, and providing.
As things get worse, Homo-Metro-Sexus will continue his decline away from male-ness, and toward a sort of unic-fantasian mind-set. Really, all the “check-drawers” are going to be in for a reality adjustment as conditions worsen. The productive will literally need to rise up, and for starters, “vote”, and secondly, participate in the growing “cash-economy” to bypass (as best as possible) continued economic intrusions by government and general situational collapse. As the productive slowly wake from their slumbers, they begin to realize they are being forced to host -to the parasites- all around them, the “drawr’s” of checks. That fountain will be cut of its water and quickly dry to desert once it hits critical mass. Perhaps the parasites will have an “uprising” of their own in retaliation? However, organization, and reaching “positions of power”, require motivation, and draw’rs are busy eating Doritos and playing their Playstation.
As “that” condition worsens, for the parasites, many will submit to ending their years-long leach upon the productive. The productive will gather, pick all those leaches off their lives, and form their own forms of union, as the parasites possess now, and solidify to protect from this ever happening again. That is, salt and perfume for those leaches now….blow torches later.
That’s when things start looking up. But , we have a long way to go. The debate still centers around whether using salt and perfume on that 50 pound leach on your back…is humane.
