Today was payday. I waited until 3ohEight got home from school and then headed off to the budding metropolis of Tijuana on the Sky(komish River, or TotS) to buy groceries and some preps.
At the local Big 5 sporting goods store I stocked up on butane fuel for my single burner Amco Model A100 butane stove. The bottles of fuel were $1.99 each so I bought 10 of them. I nearly wiped out the entire shelf.
You see these stoves everywhere, usually without any fuel nearby, so I have been buying some whenever I can. I also bought some Coleman zipper pull thermometers with compass. These will go into the GHB’s and BOB’s for my family.
When we got to the checkout counter the female cashier (cute) proceeded to ask me for my zip code. Of course I gave her the one for TotS as I feel it is no ones business where I live. She was “like totally” astounded that anyone would buy so many gas canisters at one time.
“Are you going camping?”
“No, we're going hunting”
“Oh, I went hunting with my dad once. He woke me up early one morning and asked if I wanted to help cook some eggs. I asked him how he was going to do that and he said he was going to cook them in some water (boil) and then eat them that way. I told him eeewww, I don’t want any of them. I don’t go anymore, it’s too long to go without a shower and blah blah blah.”
It was all I could do not to bleat out “baaaaahhhh”. Holy crap, how is she going to survive come the collapse? Short answer, she won’t. Not unless someone like myself or 3ohEight takes her in and provides for her. She seemed intelligent, perhaps she can learn if she hooks up with the right person or group.
I later told 3ohEight that come the collapse she would probably get raped and then murdered because she probably lived in a urban environment and basically had no clue as to what might be in her future.
Next we got groceries. While hanging out in the meat and cheese aisle I overheard an older gentleman complaining about some renters. “If you rent to one of them, before you know it their whole damn family is there.” He was talking about the burgeoning Mexican population in TotS.
It is a problem. Many have no insurance, yet drive. We recently had a gang killing in a town near me.
Brown Pride Soldiers.
A Mexican gang.
Affiliated with MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha MS-13)
I am not anti Mexican. There are some really great people that I work with that are hard workers. They are here legally. I am anti ILLEGAL immigrant.
We stopped by the local Jack-In-The-Box for lunch and were treated to our own version of TotS while there. 3/5th of the customers were Hispanic. 4/5ths of the staff were Hispanic. While we were eating we were treated to the banter of the staff.
I am glad they are happy.
They should be. They have the job that my 19 year old can’t get because they have it. I don’t know the hiring policies of Jack-In-The-Box, I just know that a lot of US citizens need work and I see an awful lot of non-English speakers filling positions that US citizens could be filling. My 19 year old for example.
Ok, enough of my ranting about ILLEGALS.
I got preps, do you?
