orgprophet: spinifex ... you can not prep if you can not get things, when the gfc hit it was a liquidity issue ... banks stopped trusting other banks to be able to pay so the system was grinding to a halt .... when confidence erodes that credit no longer is issued to

orgprophet: other banks or other suppliers of goods, the shelves will become empty ... banks can become closed, credit cards all suspended ... and you will have to live on what you have available ... this happens when hyperinflation kicks in or confidence is lost

spinifex: A major storm front is supposed to lash South Oz this arvo. Winds to 120k. A good test for the pallet wrap hut!

WolfDen: Yeah sounds like good weather Spinifex!

spinifex: Getting some good rains now. Hope it extends to the dry areas 100km north of here - farms up there have been missing out a lot this winter and struggling to keep stock fed.

From the article: "The decision to reintroduce the draft, following recommendations by an official investigation, will cover both men and women born in 1999 or later, though only a minority will be selected to serve."
What a Scam! Either everyone does it or no-one should. Better yet ... Sweden is a capitalist country (like us). In capatilst economies we abide by the principle that 'user pays'. If there aren't enough volunteers to fill the ranks then raise the remuneration to attract more candidates! Basic Supply and Demand economics - as happens with any other kind of job!
We don't conscript people for any other job except to defend the property of the rich farts who fear their neighbors (or their own citizens) at a 'discount rate'. Why the hell does someone working for the 'national interest' as a basic soldier in the ADF take home just $60k a year while unproductive doofuses (doofi?) in 'finance' playing hokey-pokey in the stock market, with other peoples money, walk away with hundreds of thousands, if not millions a year? How does our species get this allocation of value for service so spectacularly ass-backwards?
Take a deep breath and think carefully about this: Why aren't young people conscripted to be doctors? - Apparently there's not enough of those either!
Of course ... here in Oz we have those wonderful 457 visas to bring in migrant workers. Maybe if the ADF hits the point that they can't recruit enough locals ... they'll start using that method to make up the numbers.
I'm going to take a Bex and have a nice lie down now ...
