Enjoy the Decline, The Video

I am the target audience of this book.
Someone who finds the rules have changed, and is now living in a socialist United States.
What should I do with the rest of my life in this shitty new environment?

Given that the book shows up at my house on Friday, I have found this video available now,
from the author explaining his philosphy, and what you can do with the rest of your life.

He’s very humorous, and spot on. Particularly when he rants about “How stupid could these people who want socialism possibly be? Electing people who make their life crappy.” Or the immigrants who are attracted to the US, but vote in the same type of shitty government they are fleeing.
He’s stealing my lines!

Get a nice soda from the fridge and get comfortable for 45 minutes.

    I ordered that book yesterday.

    Might as well embrace the suck.

    • James says:

      I know. Thanks for the recommendation.
      Maybe I’ll just ride around the country on my motorcycle and hang out at national parks.

      • R.D. Walker says:

        I plan on bleeding the Beast. Food stamps and Obamaphones are for punks. I am going to go full on, rent seeking, corporatist, green boondoggle, government funded entrepreneur. There are millions to be made using the government to pick the pockets of my fellow citizens.

  2. James says:

    That might be a pleasant experience.

    Run an oil company?
    Lots of regulations, fines, permits, taxes.

    Run a government funded green energy boondoggle?
    You have to believe that shit doesn’t apply to you.

  3. Locke n Load says:

    Maybe humor is our only way out.
    Or we could get serious about saving what we have of the Republic and telling the new united socialist bloc to fend for themselves. Call it a trial separation πŸ™‚ One step shy of a no-fault divorce,lol

  4. Locke n Load says:

    Seriously, the paradigm will shift violently soon enough. If the financial system implodes, as I think it will, then this guys advice will be temporarily sage at best. I’d rather put in place the structure to save what is left from the true revolutionaries, the progressives.
    I can’t help it, I have too much Taggart in me. I’ll have to see it collapse before I give up on saving at least SOME of it. Telling me I shouldn’t have had children? Fuck him. Like we knew this would reach critical mass without our beating it back? I have to raise my kids morally, with direction. And I can’t teach them to be immoral bloodsucking leeches.

  5. James says:

    I watched it a second time.
    People like us who realize we’re being shit upon, stop working.
    The dummies left working are Obama voters.
    Milk their system and take their money. That’s what they voted for.

    I had a Mexican GF who was business oriented, and votes Obama. I tried to explain she was creating the same shitty dictatorship she fled. She’s too stupid to understand it.

  6. Locke n Load says:

    Oh trust me, I’m already doing the numbers on where the EITC line is and what my returns on labor are as I exceed it. But just the same, I have kids. I have an obligation to raise them to compete and compete morally. Working hard and living by the constitution are so deep in my bones I wouldn’t know how to exorcize it much less teach bloodsucking to my kids.
    More and more I’m coming to the conclusion that our generation will have to be the one that faces the war in front of us. The progressives are waging a rebellion, a revolution, and they don’t even have the balls to fight us straight up. Well fine, Im all for acknowledging truth, and the truth is we need to let them have their way… on their own soil.
    They can form their own country since they’re hell bent on discarding the constitution. They want a new one, we want to keep the original. Fine. Go write your own and take NY and the upper east coast. They can have CA as well, they’ve destroyed it anyway. Same for the rest. They want out, let them scram. We have all the resources, food, and producers anyway.
    Call it a 30 yr trial separation. They can keep the shithole that is DC and manage their little socialist kingdom and its collapsing currency.
    We’ll adopt a more traditional method, backed in gold or oil, and rebuild our economy. the best and brightest will run screaming from the coast soon enough and we can have REAL immigration laws, like pre-64.
    This doesn’t HAVE to be ugly. For the trial separation period we can share the burden of continental defense.
    If they haven’t collapsed or gone cannibal before the 30 yrs is up well maybe we can revisit the 50 state idea again with a new consituitional convention. And if they go bonkers before that we can tell ’em to fuck off πŸ™‚
    I know this all sounds delusional but I’m onlyn half kidding.
    I’d rather remove the gangrenous limbs than let the whole body of America die of the infection.
    They want out so bad, let ’em go.
    Maybe we can still save some of our heritage

    • Locke n Load says:

      the ‘lite’ version of this is a 10th amendment uprising of sorts. If we can find states to embrace Nullification of all unconstitutional Federal behavior we can crush them peacefully. Simply refuse to participate. Obviously Boehner won’t want any part. He just accepted 25 large to start up the Ohio health exchanges. Fools. Traitors. These men are the enemy of our founders, our way of life, and our constitution. If they refuse to work as our representatives then we have to take away their power.
      Nullification is a powerful weapon if the states would only use it.

      • notamobster says:

        They would never go for the trial separation because they know they need us. You have to remember that to them, we are too stupid to know what is in our best interest and it is incumbent upon them to force us.

        • Locke n Load says:

          Clearly you’ve forgotton about my morbid sense of sarcasm. I thought the shared military thing would have exposed that πŸ™‚
          The idea isn’t entirely insane though. We aren’t leaving them, they’re waging war against US. We are either going to have to form a serious bloc of staunch resistance via Nullification tactics or finally admit they want nothing less than war. We’re defending the constitution, not them.
          Again, I’d vote for Tx independence in a heartbeat. And that ISN”T sarcasm

          • notamobster says:

            I would move to Texas tomorrow if they seceded.

            • Locke n Load says:

              Of course you would. And imagine all the talent in the country that would migrate to the new bloc of Nullification minded states. Same idea, right?

              They want to destroy the constitution, we demand it be respected. Eventually that might just be what draws the battle lines. But in the meantime it can be a way to unite a nascent resistance. Nullify

          • xenicalman says:

            L&L, Ditto.
            Many months ago, when I first became Revoisticized, I proffered that a military coup would be a good idea.I stated that such a coup would be in keeping with the oath we as servicemen took upon enlistment. That part of “to protect and defend the Constitution etc…” and the justification for same. I took a lot of flak. I am still of that mind and I think that we may be getting closer to where such an event could occur. I peruse this site daily and I don’t believe anyone has talked about it as being a possibility prior to an open rebellion. Or at the very least, an event subsequent to a rebellion.I would like to think that our troops would exercise the coup option before shooting fellow Americans.

        • Locke n Load says:

          Yeah, not much into the whole ‘war’ thing. Last thing I want to see actually.
          I’m talking about agressive Nullification in the Jeffersonian sense. Just. Stop. Complying.

          The refusal to set up Exchanges for the ACA is a decent example of how to get the ball rolling. If we can get 30-35 states doing this on mutliple issues, well, we could reign them in.

          Ultimately that might be what SAVES us from the ugly alternative.

          • notamobster says:

            Death is not the worst of evils, but you can have me committed to an institution, if you hear me calling for a revolution or (esp) a military coup before it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY AS A LAST RESORT!

  7. notamobster says:

    Holy balls! I love this guy! His rambling 45 minute diatribe just convinced me to buy his book.

    • Locke n Load says:

      I’ll give him credit, he did describe PTESD quite well

      • notamobster says:

        You don’t have to agree with everything he said (big tent), but there is no denying he strikes at the root and is hilarious in doing so. He should be writing for The Revo.

        • Locke n Load says:

          He does that. And he’s an asshole.
          He’s suggesting everyone steal from me and my only option is to get on the theft bandwagon. Thats fairly thick sarcasm he’s slathering on..or is he?
          He’s single, has no kids, and has no stake in the game as rich as ours. Its easier for him to play the merry thief, he has nobody to be accountable to.

  8. James says:

    L&L, those in charge and their moochers will never agree to any separation. They want your stuff. You are their slave. What is this wishful thinking they will set you Free?

    • Locke n Load says:

      I don’t intend to suggest it would be a thing they would grant us. We have to assert our right to not let them take it.
      Half of what comes out of Washington is blatently unconstitutional. I say we start picking our battles wisely via nullification, as a bloc of states, and put the ball in their court.

  9. notamobster says:

    Listening to this one, now:

  10. James says:

    He wrote a book called “Worthless” about junk degrees.
    He is on track – “Pick a career that makes money.”
    And that may not require a college degree.
    “Doing something you love” likely won’t work out.
    Too many other people will want to do the same fun easy thing.
    Large supply means low wages.

    • Locke n Load says:

      He suggests picking a career that makes money but at the same time says we’re fools to contribute to the socialist pigs. Advocates dropping out AND aiming for high earnings.
      This is one brutally jaded and conflicted man. Yeah, he’s like us,lol. But I’m not sure I see consistency, more like sarcasm elevated beyond the highest reaches of snark, grasping at absurdity as if its a virtue.
      Then again I’m just snarkin on the surface presentation while drinking Crown. That could be the problem.
      Let me know after reading his latest work if it rises above philosophically fatalist masturbation

  11. notamobster says:

    I really like him. Thanks,again, for posting this, James.

  12. James says:

    R.D. found the book.

  13. James says:

    On chapter 2 now.
    It’s not as if I don’t know the material in this book.
    I’ve been in denial, thinking maybe things will get better.
    This denial has been inhibiting my planning, and action.
    The author has no such denial, and he’s convincing.
    That is what the book offers.
