13:02 – We’re doing a few things around the house today, but otherwise taking it easy.

I just read an interesting article by Jack Perry: The End is Not Near, It has Begun

“The end is not near. The end has begun. You wanted to know how it will end? Well, take a look around. You’re living in it. If you live in a major city, you already know this or suspect this. If you live in a rural area, you already know the federal government could disappear tomorrow and it wouldn’t affect you that much. We’re not going to fall into some dystopian dog-eat-dog future. We’re going to cease to be the United States and become a collection of different countries..”

Read the whole article. It’s not unlikely that things will begin to unfold as Perry predicts, although I think his prediction that the federal government will be able to keep things together for 10 or 20 years is probably much too optimistic. More likely, things will catch fire at some point and then the whole thing will go over like a row of dominoes, in a matter of weeks or at most months rather than years.
