Crabs in a Pot

2019 April 26
by drdog09

Like the lady says "You ain’t leaving sucker!". There are many, fact probably about half, of the folks out there are like that. There are various sayings along a similar vein:

  • "I can’t soar like a eagle when I am dealing with turkeys."
  • "They hate you because of your success, not for being you."
  • "Envy is the engine of a small mind."

Well that mentality can be applied to the fascist Left. They would rather see us all in equal misery rather than unequal with soaring success for most. East Germany and Soviet Russia were crabs in a pot writ at the national scale.

When I was a boy people were not like this. The mindset watching the boss drive away in the new caddy was "someday I will have one too!". Now its virtue signaling hatred that the boss even has a Cadillac and owning one can be viewed as racist especially if the driver is White.

Don’t be a crab.

    One of your favorite topics, drdog09 –

    So, what are we going to do with the illegal aliens currently doing jobs Americans won’t do? This is going to be a real problem as menial jobs keep getting automated and people only capable of doing menial work arrive.

    Good read. If they can scale like this, they have a shot. Moving beds around is inefficient compared to just floating raft systems. Produce out one end, new seedlings in the other end.

    But yes we won’t need the ag worker from the barrio in the future. Field machinery is getting very sophisticated. The illegals coming in is one reason you won’t be able to implement UBI here. If we treat UBI like we implement our current welfare system the country will be bankrupt in 2 years tops.

    UBI (Universal Basic Income), Universal Healthcare, and full government “education” are intended to bankrupt the country…at least as far as the rubes are concerned.

    The goal is to get the masses hooked on all the free shit you can, provide as little incentive and/or potential for people to EVER climb a socio-economic ladder by REMOVING THE LADDER.

    Then we wind up with the true goal: a Two-Class system…with a tiny but ultimately powerful RULING class, and everyone else. In order to ensure the masses get enough to eat the government will HAVE to seize all production…especially foodstuffs. In order to ensure everyone (but them) get “basic medical care”, the Ruling elite will HAVE to “ration” healthcare”

    and so on.

    The Democrat/Progressive playbook has worked wonderfully in the Inner Cities for decades…with very few “crabs” escaping. This is just using that model on a national scale.

    Of course, ya gotta disarm the masses first.

    “Of course, ya gotta disarm the masses first.”

    Thats what you do during stone crab season down in Fla. Ya take one claw then throw it back to grow another. Course the Masters intend to take both claws and if again if grows take it out and shoot it.

    By the way, the TPTB per a report I saw is that 0 NJ gun owners turned in any illegal guns or accessories. NONE. So some crabs might just escape the pot.

    Bayer shareholders fire CEO —

    Guess the Monsanto deal come a cropper eh? I am not against pesticides. Just ones that have a long life span which RoundUp does. It can be 5 years before a sprayed field can be used for other than a RoundUP ready seed crop.

    I see the DOJ has time to probe Ford over emissions testing, but ain’t got no time for Clinton Cabal probe or time to arrest the mayor of Oakland, or file federal charged on jessie to make a point about false hoaxes.

    5 – So that mostly answers my question about if they (Bayer) truly factored in these suits (and payouts) as part of the likely cost of acquisition.

    On just a little bit of justice front – it’s not enough to change their minds (or their investors yet) …but it hit, have to keep it up on all fronts.

    why float a reactor?

    Any nuke plant in a coastal zone probably started life as a floater. Turkey point in Florida they dug a 10mi canal. Dug out the site, drove pilings, flooded it, floated the barges in with the assemblies then back filled the entire location. All the parts were built elsewhere on the barges.

    12 – In this case JR I think so they can drag it to a remote island in the northern ice, hook it up to shore, and provide power for a town\base that supports other resource extraction, then be able to easily (relatively) drag it away and swap for another when it needs it’s 12year refurb. Japan could have used one during post-fuka.

    Green Bay rally is tonight right, given the week should be interesting?

    The DJAG if they are flag rank ought to be called up out of retirement brought up on dereliction of duty charges and then cashiered out sans a pension.

    When the Productive Class has been pushed hard enough, they will opt out

    Just about there myself. Already stepped down off the excited state corporate life. About ready to bail from the teaching gig. The self sufficient life awaits.

    KH, I just read that article about the Navy Seal who was railroaded by the Navy “Justice” system.

    And yup, it was because Obama WANTED it that way!

    22, inspiring!
    Is that really true about the bodies of the patriots?

    But still has twitter and facebook account, think that would happen if situation was reversed???
    You know when enough people are spitting out bs like this, without consequence (seems to be happening more often these days), it going to eventually, if not already, breed it’s own consequences among those being attacked.

    17 – Yeah, fat chance of that happening though.
    19 – Yup, and sign of just how weak our ‘leadership’ is at all levels when it comes to right\wrong, vs politically expedient, higher you go, more fked up it gets.
    23 – Sounds like they thought they were MS who can get away with constantly shifting around features sets to different price tiers without serious notice.
