Shythole states, eh? Please, tell me more from #46 out of 50...

I didn't say schithole states, I said "..schithole northeastern cities..." and I will stand by that, regardless of what some (probably politically motivated) Newsweek Magazine poll of questionable, and certainly incomplete, methodology may "show." The stated criteria alone are fraught with the possibility of uncontrolled variables. Polls like that are just clickbait.

I've lived in the NE and there are great places and great people all over up there. I've also spent time in most of the major cities up there. IMO, they're schitholes. In my experience, the general run of people you meet out in public here are a lot friendlier and a lot more open. They're a lot more likely to strike up casual, friendly conversations with strangers at the supermarket, restaurants, wherever.

Folks here are more courteous than ever.

Lots of gracious displays out and about. On the street, in the stores, etc.... I don’t see it continuing in the cities if the situation continues to decline. Some will band together and help each other out, others will go another route.

A cultural division in my opinion. Not east vs west.

Those that were good neighbors will likely continue to be so. Those that weren’t, won’t, and I would guess will become a problem.

While both sorts are present everywhere, the concentration of the latter is simply more dense in an urban setting and will have more impact.

Kamo,

Things north of the border are good at present.

Although people are certainly suffering some & different levels of duress, not much has changed.

Everybody still says "sorry" !!!!

Seriously, we are very glad we a in a rural area, 20 minutes from town, in a catchment area population of about 6000.

Obviously, can't carry up here, even defending your property would be dicey !

Planning for the worst & hoping for the best, is always the right option.

These 2 pussycats, would go from what is depicted in this photo, to someone's worst nightmare, if they felt "Momma" was in danger, or if any of us said to !

Hope you & yours stay safe & well !

I believe I have definitely observed more instances of impatient shytheadery in simple things relating to drivers, dog walkers, cashiers and delivery people. I've noticed an increase IMO in some difficult to define--but present nonetheless--instances of increased sour and suspicious looks, argumentativeness and general, I dunno', distrust.

My personal feeling is that as long as the big three are readily available--food/water, electricity and heat-- things will be OK and the streets aren't likely to start running red. Take away any of those and I could easily see where things go to shyt right quick. I have a class A, so called 'high capacity' state issued license to carry concealed firearms. As the liberal ivory midden I normally work at would relieve me of my position were I caught carrying OTJ, I don't (allegedly) normally do so while working, but now that I am an employee working 'remotely', I don't leave the house unarmed, ever. My wife has never been anti-gun, and has been shown how to load and use every firearm in the house to proper effect, but it surprised me when last week or so she started asking me every time we were getting ready to leave the house, 'kenju arimasu-ka, daddy?' Translation: 'do you have a jammy on you, daddy?'

Interesting times continue.


All the pawn shops are open here. For the crackheads
its business as usual.



Our pawn shops suck. Never found a deal on anything in them. I mean they have stuff, beat to hell and for about 50 cents less than new. Try and negotiate and you might get it down to 75 cents off. Waste of time here.


the innanets ruint everthing.

dang pawn shop owners can use they googlefu and figger out what just about anything goes fer nowdays.

no more deels on heaters cause the pawn dude didn't no how much a clean 27-2 is worth,.

Sure sucks. Bigly

My dog found a fresh moose bone yesterday.

I don't think it was of Nature's winter-kill .

No “edginess” here, if anything people seem to be more patient than usual. I’m in a rural area though and most of the country folks around me can go a long time on a little.

I’d expect the cities to be the first places to become unhinged. They’re a lot more reliant on infrastructure and others in general.

Other than our favorite restaurants being closed, it's pretty much business as usual around here. I'll wager that 97% of households in this county have at least one firearm and I don't see things getting too sporty. Glad I don't have young kids to try to entertain 24/7.

It’s the same here so far Aces but we’re very rural we’re all chipping in in the area to help some elderly couples on fixed incomes staying at home. Let’s hope it spreads to other areas of the country and the place will be a lot better off. I believe it’s gonna be a great eye-opening to the millennials that just took everything for granted.

I almost got into a fight at the Holiday in Fairbanks. A little goblin decided he wanted to show off to his meth skanks and yelled "get out of my way". I told him to calm down and walked to a different part of the store. He followed me and said, "I'll show you..." he pulled back to throw some kind of strange haymaker towards me and I hit him with a slide-through and sweeped his legs, grabbed him by the hood of his hoodie and threw him into the cooler. I told the manager to call the cops and I left. I am the nicest guy you would ever meet and people note that kids and dogs are always friendly towards me. I don't consider what I did as a fight because that feller didn't get a paw on me.

The stores in Fairbanks are low on some types of food. Especially frozen, instant food(like TV dinners). We are the last store in the supply chain so we will likely run out of stuff first. The booze, the pot and the sex shops(ie castle) seem to be doing bang up business. Things under the surface are not going to go well and as Las said the free moose population has disappeared. SW has been selling ammo and almost nothing in the camping section. However, camping has been selling lots of meat grinders and freezer paper. Take that the way you would. There was a big facebook share of letting the food stamp people go hog wild during the first three days of the month with their EBT cards.

Be well.

That's because they're in a daze from lack of Big Blew bball or too much meth.

I want to remind you all about an interesting thread started by Rock&B Bar


https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbt...2491/1/interesting-heads-up-this-morning

Quote
The main guy said he has been hearing a LOT of talk in the Mexican community around here. Most have been laid off. They all have lots of kids. There's a bunch of them. 50% of the population, or better. Probably 75%..

Anyway, he said he's hearing lots of talk in his Mexican community that they are running out of money quickly. He said they have been saying when they cannot buy what they need, they will start taking it. By force if needed, but they will take it.

Okay. Thanks for the heads up.

It's coming folks. Whether you believe it or not.


So here's why this is one of the potential flash points.

Part of the value in the 2 trillion dollar stimulus package is to keep the people living hand to mouth who loose their jobs from burning everything down. So we created a "relief" package with includes additional cash for unemployment, and direct payments to taxpayer so daddy don't have to loot the HBC cus the kids are hungry.

But if you were working under the table and not paying taxes, and get shut down, well, you are ineligible for unemployment AND the direct cash payments. Of course there employment patterns are more common in certain communities than others. So as the shut down continues, the potential for this to turn into a flash point escalates, especially for those of us who are not part of, but have significant exposure to these communities.

At this point it appear Colorado will experience an 8 week shut down. I'm not saying it will happen here, but I have to wonder if we will see any Ferguson type events in the type of area's I've described?

Here in America's behavorial sink things are pretty mellow so far. Ours is a town that is easy to exit and enjoy the outdoors. Stores are decently stocked and the dregs are happy to wait for more than 1 hour to get their pot. I went to Albertsons on Monday to avoid the EBT crowd and everyone was mellow except for one middle eastern type who threw a filthy wad of cash at the cashier and very loudly demanded that she accept it. I quietly reminded him that he should be grateful that better people better than he came to work and that he should lower his voice. He took the hint and adjusted his attitude.

So far I am impressed with how people are adjusting and adapting to a life changing event. Americans continue to show the world why we are the greatest nation on earth.
