Time to shrug?

The incumbent president has moved to nationalize the banks. Pressure is being exerted to nationalize the auto industry. The incoming president has made nationalizing the insurance industry one of his priorities. All of this will be funded by confiscating more from the productive. This scenario is sounding awfully familiar, although in real life they nationalized the railroads a lot earlier in the process than in the book.

I'm just about ready to move to a gulch if I can find one who'll have me. Or maybe I can flip burgers until after the productive are welcome again.

Can't really invite you to a gulch, since I'm not (yet) part of one, but you'd be welcome here anytime.

The willingly productive are always useful to the p.t.b.
Welcomed by whom; if your activities add value to anything, there will always be a larger group more than willing to welcome you into the sacrificial pot.
A gulch is what YOU make it.

I've read you can live on mostly sprouts, and those are easy to grow. Also, garlic scapes are delicious and zucchini and amaranth grow like weeds in many places. It's never too early to plant your victory garden (no more canned spinach, Olive!).

Just don't set it up so it looks like a drug grow-op or the DEA will tear it apart...

I'm petty sure if I moved to a gulch, nobody would notice.
