I would say
this is sicker
and and more evil
than usual but after the
carnage in Israel
it seems barely newsworthy.
And given the number of
infiltrators in the country
tomorrow could be ugly
Austin is one of the blue cesspools in Texas, not as big as Houston and with a smaller toxic demographic. Still they have made the city nearly unlivable outside of the
safe spaces for the elite who are causing the problem. Even with the deteriorating conditions in Austin this crime seems at least unusual. So it might be one of
those weird crazy person things, time will tell but the "news" media won't have much to say if the perp is a favored demographic.
The hapless victim "has a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's in international sustainable tourism
from the University of North Texas" so there's a suggestion she
may have had that Austin elitist mindset. The 'ritzy neighborhood in this case wasn't safe for her.
As for Hyp's observation, it's one we discuss regularly. Not so much if but when and how bad. I noticed today that the government will give Social Security recipients a
3.2% COLA next year. That will be eaten up by Medicare even for those with fairly large payments. And with actual cost of living up a good 25-30% it will be even uglier
for anyone dependent upon in.
So I asked he same question - what happens (probably inside of five years) that the entire tax revenue is consumed by so-called 'entitlements' (I don't consider food stamps, subsidized
housing, medical care for people who don't produce anything - in most cases never have and never will - something anyone should be entitled to) something will have to be cut. Guess who?
Social Security and Medicare recipients, who paid in advance for their benefits, will be severely cut. There's simply no way around it. Who is the regime more afraid of -
fifty to sixty million old people, many of whom are physically incapable of violence should they be so inclined or an even larger number of young already belligerent types without any
restraint in normal times?
And payments to the parasite class not only will not be cut but likely increased. Some of those elderly folks with their already meager income cut to probably half will be angry
for sure. Whether anyone will do anything about... beats me. We live in strange times and predictability in just about anything is scarce.
In any case such a situation will likely be accompanied by other things breaking down, notably essential infrastructure. If food for the denizens of the cesspools is being paid for
but can't be delivered, it may be like the baboon experiment.
