How Americans Are Celebrating The "Recovery"

Tyler Durden's picture

Because there is no more impressive way to mourn celebrate the depression recovery, than to get increasingly more hammered at a 10% Year over Year growth pace.

And remember: with booze prices soaring (deflation everywhere... except in liquor), it seems nothing can stand between the average broke "wealth-effected" American and their bottle.

drinking is an unconcious death wish.  the advertisers all know this, and that is why they hide subliminal symbols of death in their advertising.

there is nothing the government wants more than for its citizens to drink themselves to death.  it saves them the trouble of execution in a fema camp.

Incomplete charts.  Is the east coast or the west leading the way?

I want to know if knuckles deserves most of the credit, or it belongs to my own damn self;)

General rise in demand.

Demand higher? Price is higher.

Had to get a bigger still!

Recovery porn. Propaganda.

In other news...the overlords have discovered that death is a myth.

Hah ha ha
Hell, I'm the reason that alcohol sales plummeted round about 10 years ago!

I'm the reason they've risen recently

Some things require a professional to get back on track ;-)

Tall Tom's picture

Yeah...Pehaps we need Professional FARMERS, Professional ENERGY MANAGERS and a Professional Government to REPEAL myopic laws to get us back on track

 

None of this increase in price has anything to do with the price of Grains and that Alcohol has been siphoned off to run our Automobiles. Nothing in the Price Rise has anything to do with the Government Mandate that the Gasoline must be blended with ethanol.

 

Of course this might have an affect on the supply of ethanol for Human Consumption.

 

Can prices be rising because of stable demand and restricted supply?

 

No. That will make too much sense.

Try not to lose hope. Keep looking for him, he's bound to turn up sooner or later......

There's a good chance once it gets cold and hungry, it'll find its way home. Keep some food out and good luck - Ill pray for you.

Tall Tom's picture

I am sorry for your loss. What happened? How did he die?

TeamDepends's picture

Thank you.  He ate something which stopped his organs in twelve hours.  We should not have sugar-coated it by saying "lost", as it created confusion.  Thanks again everybody, we really miss him.

Write much satire, One and Only?  This could be the greatest comedic reversal exchange I have seen in contemporary conversation since Archie Bunker and his son-in-law Meathead!  Nuff said!!

Alcohol away from home, so that's bar/restauraunt prices, right?

Service Economy, bitchez!

I think they will celebrate this Christmas with cheap booze and a roadkill dinner.  The FSA and illegals all have EBT so life is good.

Mad Dog 20/20 goes well with 3 day old road kill Opossum and Thunderbird is delightful with a Raccon or Skunk stew.

Pee Wee's picture

We mix Thunderbird with some rubbing alcohol and have it with raccoon AND skunk stew.

I wonder if the Duck Dynasty guys drink the same thing....they eat the same thing

There is actually no way to prove that being alive is inherently better than being dead.

I have seen situations where death would be a welcome respite.......

Are you referring to Nancy Pelosi:  "You have to pass it to find out what's in it."?

yeah... well... I never liked the camps anyway so... GIVE ME MORE BEER!!!

Has anyone else noticed that around Xmas there are so many more booze ads than any other time of the year.  I know people get together and drink, they give the gift of inbibement, but wow, there's an awful lot of ads this year.  They always make it look so glamorous too.  Some fine woman dancing about with a drink in her hand, happy, but not tipsy.  Maybe they should have to end these ads with someone falling down drunk - then have that tiny writing that says; Drink Responsibly. 

"Oh yeah, I will, burp, just gimme anover drinkeepoo."

Celebrating or one last binge.  Bachelor parties might be the best analogy.

Why alcohol is the best prepping item. Hoard that shit don't drink it!

RafterManFMJ's picture

Aaaaah, the 5 A's of prepping ... Alcohol, Ammo, Au, Ag, Amaranth.

Easy to make cheap stuff. Only hoard the good stuff for yourself.

I carry a pint bottle in inside coat pocket. Fuck those shot prices. Meanwhile ill sip on a brew and scram. I walk to the tappy too. Yes, swig in the shitter when an infusion is required. Desperate times require desperate measures.

RafterManFMJ's picture

Strange times. I'm looking at buying a hip flask right now. eFlask.com has a nice selection.

Every man needs a Zippo, Hip Flask, Pocketknife, Automatic Watch (or an Eco-Drive, they're just to cool not to own one) and Compact Pistol as part of his basic gadding about town kit.

SWRichmond's picture

There was a time not that long ago when a well-dressed man didn't leave his home without a pistol and a flask.

wtf1369's picture

Whatdya mean was a time?

El Vaquero's picture

Compact pistol?  Only if you are small.  Under most circumstances, the smallest thing I would carry is my full size XD, and I want to get a Glock 20.  Hell, I'd carry a 475 Wildey Mag if I could. 

10mm's picture

You will like the Glock 20. Get the Gen 3 SF, Gen 4's first yr had some hiccups. Wait it out to they correct it for gen 4. Gen 3 full size with a 22lb Wolff Recoil Spring and steel guide rod for silky smooth action and real 10 Mike Mike loads. Oh yes, Underwood Ammo for the best and i mean best 10mm on the market, price wise and real 10mm.

El Vaquero's picture

(For some reason, I figured that post would get your attention.)

 

A buddy of mine has one, and he eschews any but full 10mm loads.  None of the pussified loads like the FBI used to use because their agents couldn't handle it.  (I'd just get a .40 if I was going to shoot those things.)  I like his, so I know I'd like one of my own.  I've wanted a 10mm for a while anyway. 

10mm's picture

Addictive. Im picking up a Tanfoglio Stock II in Jan. Upper Tier in their line up. Shoot great and very accurate. Wolff Springs makes em all for Glocks others. Good Luck and knock em dead.
