I like eggs. I also like fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes and green beans. But I’m not fond enough of any or all of these for it to make economical sense to acquire a flock of ten chickens or spend the time and money required to build a large raised garden bed. But I’ve recently done both.
With the current dipshits running the country strongly suggesting (read dictating) that we reduce our red meat consumption to four pounds per year among other things, I feel a strong urge to rebuild my stock of staple and shelf-stable foods and start to produce as much of my own perishable food as possible. Diety only knows what other stupid shit they’re going to try to cram down our throats while they simultaneously destroy the economy and finish ruining the value of our fiat currency. I’m also back to considering goats after initially discarding that idea as too much work for a meat that I’ve learned that I’m not all that fond of. I can spice it or make it into a stew that will mitigate enough of the flavor to make it acceptable.
In about a decade, I’ll be retired and collecting social security as well as pulling funds from my retirement accounts – assuming that both still exist at that time. By then, I fear that my entire monthly payment won’t pay the rent (tax) on the home that I supposedly own, much less feed me. The more I can directly control, the better. I’m fat. I can stop eating for six months and will still be borderline overweight. But six months won’t be enough time for the country to unfuck itself unless I miss my guess. Plus, fuck .gov and their meddling.
