Well, here's another example as to why white folks seem to be in a pre-revolutionary situation right now:
maybe white folks are stupid and want to eat in restaurants all day

i see that all the time with people who claim to be "poor"

breakfast at macdonalds
lunch at wendy's
dinner at panda express or whatever shit

result: malnourished obese and broke

me, i just came back from walmart with a giant 15lb brisket for $30

it's a fatty cut, so a lot will melt, but that's enough for 2 to eat all week + a sunday BBQ feast

you can't fix stupid.

i mean, i see people with food stamps buying chips and colas.

and you wonder why people die earlier. ha ha ha ha.

what you fail to understand is that every white person is a unique individual on the cusp of becoming an ultra rich celebrity so things like eating healthy with relatives and friends are beneath us. all white people can lose weight, become rich and look like a jpeg if we just apply our mental energy and there are deep mechanisms of shame and denial to keep us in line when we don't. it's all working out great. you just need to be more positive. life is about ENJOYMENT! TAKE SOME PILLS AND SHUT UP!

i don't understand what you're saying. i mean i do parts but not the whole point (the pills, ect). ETA: oh i think i do now. [entertainment+fictional status] > survival, for the entitled set? if so, i agree.

i was just trying to show schunk that 'merica is still a land of plenty if people just know where to look. this is why an immigrant can feed a family of 6 on 50 bucks a week while entitled aspirationals claim that it's impossible to live on $40k/yr and rural schools can't fill teacher positions with salaries like that. so they are actually bringing foreigners to do the job.

[eta: this is from a very conservative website, pre-trump days: http://www.heritage.org/research/rep...acher-shortage ]

but instead of saying "oh look at these clever immigrants, i'm gonna adapt to my situation and and copy them" now they say "bad hombres, rapist drug dealers, trump make america great again" and "there are no jobs for white men"

i mean once i was helping this friend work on a project he couldn't afford to pay me. he'd show up at my house every morning with a bag of mcdonalds breakfast. i'm looking at his junk food thinking "that's worth at least 2 dozen eggs, and this is why he can't afford to pay me". it takes 1 minute to microwave a fucking egg that cost 10 cents.

another night i call him to discuss some details of his project but he's in a bar drunk. can't talk on the phone.

but i had to wait 6 months for my nominal fee because he's "broke."

lol

broke is sooooo relative.

well this is a big country with a lot of land, so there is a lot of cattle. you could come if trump lets you!

i like cheap meat cuts-- well prepared, they're the tastiest

pork is even cheaper btw. $1.50/lb at the right store. i roasted a pork shoulder last week, juicy and magnificent.

the week before that i went on a wednesday (when sales are on) and got a massive butt roast for $8. it was like, 12 lbs. i couldn't stop laughing. made some awesome carnitas and still have some frozen. beef is a splurge!

my point is to try and illustrate the dynamics of the decadent white mind.

ask yourself what the outcome would have been if you grew up in a situation were basically everyone was like your friend or worse.

lot of white people burnt themselves out chasing simulacric gold, fleeing from the very reality that immigrants are an uncomfortable reminder of

ah yes yes yes yes

i remember when i came to this country, i had a classmate who hated everyone. when i asked him why, he said because he grew up poor and they had an old car. he said it with a whining voice.

i almost laughed to his face and said-- you had a car! didn't have to spend 4 hours a day crammed in a bus! how is that poor?

fucking crybaby! decadent is the right adjective. americans are rich and most don't even know it--would rather whine about not being infinitely rich--that shit has no end. comfort KILLS.

boohoo why do i have a new toyota and not a mercedes waaaaaaah i'm a loser god hates meeee

etc

lives of the rich and famous + celebrity worship + proletarians in denial = conned by trump as "leader"

I'd be a little leery of the cheap meat, if I were you. The conditions in the slaughterhouses in Iowa and Colorado are approaching that found in the Jungle. I'm of the more veg and salad meals and less of the pork and beef. Food safety is a real crap shoot in the USA these days, so best of luck to ya!

okay but now speaking without irony i have a problem with racial generalizations

besides, it's not a skin color thing-- it's truly a class thing

the problem is class is somewhat racialized, so things get conflated

e.g, the "broke" friend i helped was a well-educated brown guy with a better/steadier income than me

problem is, everyone regardless of "races" is brainwashed to spend above their income level and gets clusterfucked in aspirational lifestyles-- one month without a paycheck and the house of cards collapses

the difference i suppose is that for brown people the indentured servitude of debt feels somewhat familiar, whereas for blancos it's a loss of status from the "good old days" of growing prosperity and having servants--hence the resentment

so schunk and tesla think that trump is going to make them rich again after the country is "cleaned up" of "bad hombres" who work at the restaurant kitchen. the meat guy at my local walmart is a mexican--i heard him speak mexican [okay a little irony there].

but tesla would never do that job, even at gunpoint. same thing as the brexit people complaining about polish workers-- they don't wanna do "undesirable" non-hipster jobs, but complain about the migrants who fill the vacancies.

it's not really "white" decadence--it's first-world decadence. it's still quite a feast though if you know where to get your scraps haaa haa haaa.

4. also. white people! I would love to hear yr thoughts on white people.

5. while yr at it....immigrants and blacks too.

6. hell, since im getting lower on the list, how bout jews, extraterrestrials and microbe life.

A lot of Americans these days, white and non-white, are balancing two or three part-time jobs without benefits to feed their families. Slow public transit being their means from job to job, and the wife working as well, means there's often nowhere to grab a quick meal save for fast food joints.

Walmart gets their meat from the ranching system out West, where you're either the manager of a factory ranch owned by a big (poorly-paying) corporation. or you're an independent rancher who must sell his livestock at the assigned feedlot for a pittance of a profit, or even at a loss. You see, ranchers were once able to offer their livestock at any feedlot they chose, and, if they didn't like the price, they could go from feedlot to feedlot to offer their cattle until they found prices to their liking. But now, ranchers must go to the feedlot assigned them by means of a territorial system, and the agribusiness corporations who run them can offer them whatever price they feel like paying. And it's certainly true that this constitutes price-fixing, monopolization, and conspiracy, but who are going to enforce these laws? The servants of the Federal and state legislatures whose campaigns are bought and paid for by those same agribusiness monopolists?

And Walmart has been caught teaching their employees how to access federal and state welfae benefits so that the taxpayer might pick up the difference dividing their needs from their employer's willingness to compensate them fairly for their work. Yet more corporate welfare!

The one and only way HTC wins is if turnout is high. I went canvassing yesterday, and don't think every HTC voter knows where to go or even when the election is. Statistically, if it rains, there's a 20 percent drop in turnout! Dems are scatterbrained and need your help. Contact your county dem office or go to her website to search for local info.

Or take a trip to a state that might be more urgent than yours.

Yeah, I fucking don't wanna either. I'm half painfully shy and half misanthropic, but these are dire days.

Imagine: it's next Tuesday evening. The TV is on. The results come fast and furious. And then you hear the words. "It's official, folks. America has spoken and Donald j trump will be the next president of the United States. Now back to our team for analysis."

Bothering a stranger for thirty seconds doesn't sound so bad now, does it?

oh hey man, i inadvertently missed this post and didn't reply earlier

cheap meat and cheap cuts are not the same. i buy the same meat everyone else buys, USDA inspected and graded, but i buy the cheap cuts.

the same cow that gives you the ribeye steak gives you the chuck roast/pot roast

the same veal that gives you the luxurious cutlet gives you the supernutritious and inexpensive liver

furthermore, i buy large cuts instead of retail bits

so a pork loin that's $2/lb gets sliced into pork chops and it magically goes up to $5/lb-- because it had to be cut and repackaged. roasts beat steaks & chops by a large margin.

large vacuum-packed roasts give you the best value also because of reduced spoilage. which means safer meat that wasn't handled twice. you cook & cut & freeze at home.

as for jungle conditions etc-- large meat processors have to be compliant with the humane slaughter act, which has been in the books since 1958... more on that next.

while enforcement back in the day was very spotty, these days cattle handling is pretty great. don't know if you know who temple grandin is, but she's designed more than half of the large beef processing facilities in the country. sure, the are cases of animal abuse but those are far from being the rule.

fact is, stressed out cows yield carcasses that are called "dark cutters" and are undesirable in texture and appearance. those are not sold to consumers but end up in school cafeterias, restaurants, the prison sytem, etc etc. so i can tell by simple visual inspection that my meat was handled gently (lol).

sure there is still a way to go in animal welfare, and sure there are boutique processors who exceed those standards, but american beef is generally very safe and of great quality, especially if you buy like i do, vacuum-packed whole roasts.

chicken is what i don't trust due to antibiotic use and bleach for processing. another thing that i don't trust are those tubes of ground beef that mix meat from 5 different countries... i don't buy ground beef anyway, i can make my own if i need.

as for salads, etc-- yes they are nice for the vitamins & phytochemicals, but they have almost no macronutrients. beans are great though! but i'm temporarily off starches--even my menudo will have to wait in the freezer because of that tasty corn.

Sure, no problem. Let's ignore evollove's warnings and just be complacent. The Columbian government thought the peace deal with the rebels was a done deal with the voters. Guess what happened? The BREXIT opponents across the pond thought the no vote was a sure thing. Guess what happened?

Or take a trip to a state that might be more urgent than yours.

Yeah, I fucking don't wanna either. I'm half painfully shy and half misanthropic, but these are dire days.

Imagine: it's next Tuesday evening. The TV is on. The results come fast and furious. And then you hear the words. "It's official, folks. America has spoken and Donald j trump will be the next president of the United States. Now back to our team for analysis."

Bothering a stranger for thirty seconds doesn't sound so bad now, does it?



Wise, wise words. I've been talking to a lot of wavering "progressives" I know in an effort to talk sense to them. But I really should do some of what you're doing. So should a lot of us.

As long as we're on the subject of white people, here's a piece from the Economic Policy Institute:

Black workers’ wages have been harmed by both widening racial wage gaps and the widening productivity-pay gap



Black workers’ median hourly wages could be 87 percent higher
