This week marks the 6th Anniversary of the Birth of the Doomstead Diner. 👶

I'd like to take today's Sunday Brunch article to thank my fellow Admins as well as the regular members of the Diner who have contributed so much to our Forum, which now boasts over 141146 Posts in 8643 Topics by 1246 Members.  You can find everything there is to say about Collapse somewhere in the Diner Archives! 🙂  From Economics to Geopolitics to Environment to Psychology and Philosophy and Conspiracy Theory, the Diners have beat this horse to death! 🙄  You can also find numerous Newz Links not only in our Forum, but on our Reddit Sub, R/GLOBALCOLLAPSE, now with over 1000 subscribers.  Also visit our YouTube and Soundcloud Channels for still more Collapse in multi-media format.

This isn't going to be one of my mega-long articles, since I was kind of pooped all week and am writing this at the last minute.  It was an exciting week in Collapse though, at least from the perspective of the Stock Market.  It all started around 2 Fridays ago, with a couple of 1000+ point drops in in the DJIA, punctuated by some Dead Cat Bounces courtesy of the PPT, aka the Plunge Protection Team.  By gross numbers these were the biggest point drops in history, but as a percentage of total value since the market has been so grossly inflated with funny money, so far it has only amounted to a "correction".  We'll see which way it goes over the coming week.

Also entertaining in the last few weeks is the escalation of the Clown Show in Washington with the bullshit about memos, misogynists and money gets Tweeted off Trumpty-Dumpty's I-phone every morning, and then the rest of the day is spent with Repugnants trying to clean up the poopy mess he left on the White House front lawn.  Also interesting from the Demodope side was Nancy Pelosi doing her rendition of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington with a Filibuster style speech that went over 8 hours without Nancy yielding the floor, which as Minority Leader she has the right to do.

Nancy didn't leave the floor to eat or go to the toilet for over 8 hours!  For a 77 year old woman, that is fucking amazing! 😲 Say what you will about Mrs. Pelosi, she has fucking stamina.  However, the sideshow of the filibuster speech was to attempt to cover up for the fact the Demodopes folded and totally sold out the "Dreamers" in favor of getting a Budget deal done with the Repugnants so Da Goobermint wouldn't close down…again.  So now they have another kick-the-can agreement in place, and they can all go back to what is REALLY important, getting re-elected in November.  Of course, many Repugnants aren't seeking this honor at all this go-round of the Democracy Charade, they're retiring.  Basically nobody can stand to work under Trumpovetsky and they are exiting stage left with their CONgressional pensions and Medical Care.  Not that they really need this since they are all at least Millionaires after decades of accepting bribes. 🙄

Anyhow, whatever occurs here in the ongoing Collapse of Industrial Civilization, we will be here on the Diner as usual every day covering the clusterfuck, at least for as long as I stay above gorund level anyhow.  It's pretty remarkable I made it this long, I figured to be dead by the last anniversary. 💀 My desire to make it to SHTF Day is what keeps me going, it's my Reason to Live.  That and getting my Tombstone completed. lol.

SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
