January 4 Bunker Index - Limited Newsworthiness

Ok, after scouring my usual sources I was unable to find more than 5 rather boring and mundane news items for the BI this morning. It seems EVERYTHING has been bumped off the page by the results of the Iowa caucus.

And what exactly do those results mean? I'm not sure yet. Santorum was such a non-player up until now that I didn't bother to ever research the guy. Romney is just as much of a globalist tool as Obama, and Ron Paul is still third place. That's better than I could have hoped for though. I really thought Perry would do better in the results, his stupid gaffes notwithstanding. I would like nothing better than to see that shill return to Texas in disgrace and then lose the governor's race.

The only thing that would have given me a glimmer of hope would have been Ron Paul winning the caucus outright with a wide gap between him and all of the other candidates. The Iowa caucus is still a long way from November 2012, but it's a good indicator. Of course if Ron Paul becomes the president then expect all-out civil war as soon as he begins trying to implement any of his policies. You think the Occupy movement is bad now? Wait until you see it under a Ron Paul presidency.

But realistically, I'm watching politics these days like some men follow football. It's interesting, but doesn't have so much impact upon my life. Politics won't put water in my tank. It won't make my fruit trees grow. It won't get these solar panels built and it won't make any knives.

I live in a different kingdom now.



1. The Obama administration is reportedly speeding up the approval of fraudulent visa applications. I don't know that this one is accurate, but if so, who does it benefit? A puzzler.

2. In China, hundreds of Muslims clashed with police over the destruction of a mosque. I didn't know China had any problems with their Muslim population. Heck, I didn't know China HAD a Muslim population.

3. A drunken state trooper kicked his way into a home and assaulted a resident there. This story has a happy ending though. The homeowner, while defending his family, grabbed a hammer and whacked the trooper into unconsciousness.

4. In Florida, someone sent an envelope containing a white powder that sent 4 people to the hospital.  Remember the anthrax scares? Even that didn't make people sick upon contact. What kind of powder was that and what does this mean?

5. A recent study indicates children are harmed by overexposure to computers. They become addicted and it damages their conversational and reading skills. I have seen ample evidence to suggest that it also harms adults.

I am also at the point of ignoring most of the news, because it only sucks up time I need to be spending on living.

I go back and forth. The BI is a daily thing during the week, but as time permits I'll be doing more of the specific off-grid stuff.

We cover a lot of territory here.
