There Is No QuikEMart in Galt’s Gulch

Like many of my fellow patriots I had no wish to watch the slow-motion train wreck of the Presidential election, so since October of 2016 we have been hunkered down in our SHTF “bug-out” cabin in an undisclosed wilderness waiting for the post-American fallout to clear. We assumed we were well supplied and prepared to outlast the inevitable Hillary Clinton presidency (and the subsequent loss of liberty, freedom, and the collapse of our once proud nation) but SOMEBODY seriously miscalculated the pop-tart inventory. Also, I’m out of beer already (no surprise) and our DVD collection is wearing thin.

Since I am making this trip to pick through the ruins of civilization to remedy those “basic needs” shortages, I decided to charge up the old electronic devices on a lark and was surprised to find the Wifi and cell-phone coverage is still functional. How odd.

Well, now. It seems that even the Internet is still up and running. Let’s just scroll through some old headlines here to see how bad things got before the end of Western civilization.

This can’t be right…

He… he won? How the hell…

Well, even so, he’ll never keep those outrageous promises he… wait just a friggin’ minute. He’s done what? Huh.

So. There you are. I’m speechless. And, frankly, giddy with relief. I guess all I can do now is quote the late Gilda Radner: “Never mind.”

P.S. What am I going to do with a room full of MREs and a metric ton of toilet paper?

    Why is it that all those hysteria-driven reports about book sales of Brave New World, The Handmaid’s Tale, or Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm never mention Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (the go-to tome of those anxious souls who worried over the last eight years about bureaucratic tyranny)? Clocking in at about 1,000 pages, was it just too long a novel for this crowd? [Ed Note: this blog post title is a nod towards Atlas Shrugged.] I find it amusing that the anxious left turns now towards fiction that warns of the dystopian results of socialism. Wasn’t Socialist Bernie their “guy”?
