It’s quiet here today.
A couple of grass fires in the OKC Metro, but they were quickly contained. Cops in Anaheim executing people in the street is a world away. Aurora is a long way from here, and lots of folks are suggesting it was staged, anyway. We’re too busy roasting to worry about that stuff. There are hotter places and they can keep it, thank you, this is plenty bad. When it’s hot like this crime soars.
Conspiracy theorists are keeping an eye on London. Taking bets on what sort of false flag operation is going down. Taking bets on when Israel is attacking Syria, Iran, or maybe Lebanon. Silly people. Not because it can’t happen, but more that it can’t be stopped.
But it does feel like the calm before the storm.
This heat and drought is already pushing prices up on corn, and soy beans are set to rise, too. It’s all GMO stuff anyway, but the tight market will hit organics, too. I’ll need to stock some good ol’ Red Mill dry polenta (corn grits) this week. But for everyone else, that GMO corn is used in everything at the grocery store, and more places you can’t imagine if you don’t read labels. Prices going up already, and the upper limit is way up there.
It doesn’t take a prophet to see what sort of trouble that brings. Serious inflation on basic needs while there are fewer jobs than ever, and subsidies/welfare cuts making their way through Congress. And Europe is having some serious troubles with banking, etc. We are sure to feel that here later.
Make preparations if you can. Hope you can keep what you buy. As the wrath of God rests longer and stronger on America, I fear the fallout will hit a lot of folks who have their own problems. While nobody is innocent, we have done so very much to grab hold of so very many people in the world, making them dependent on us, something they hardly requested. Don’t weep for us, because we asked for this. But I’ll weep for all those who didn’t have much choice. Americans will be morally on the hook for more blood than anyone can imagine.
But it’s quiet today.
