Sometimes I wish I could just scream like a little prison bitch whose front teeth have been kicked out. Here we are in very short order going to either be in prison for not having a job and hence paying for Obammy Care, or we are going to be in a detention center just because a Fed said he suspected us of, whatever. And no, don’t think it is going to be like prison now. It is going to be quick starvation concentration camps. Your grand pappy got to die to free the Jews from those kinds of camps ( okay, it was to create an empire, but I’m in full patriotic mode here for illustrative purposes ). And you get to become one of the new Jews. The old Jews labored for the glorious Reich, and you get to labor for the glorious Homeland. Jesus weeps. And if you dare try to escape your banker controlled golden handcuff corporate cubical job, thinking you shall weasel out of their grasp by going self-sufficient in a rural area, they just close down your income generating web site. You are truly screwed ( we all are, baring an ability to disappear in the wilderness and escape drone detection ). I can’t believe how quickly the militia porn nightmare is actually unfolding. Well, don’t I feel like an idiot for thinking I was preparing. Alas, this new particular problem is going to have to wait. As I’ve said, I have no earthly idea how to try to alleviate it. If you go mobile because you don’t want to be a stationary target, the TSA checkpoints will get you. If you drop out of the Rat Race, they’ll get you for not working and paying the insurance company bail-out tax. So, while huge problems we need to worry about loom large, without answers all I can do is whistle while the lights go out. So today’s article, as inconsequential as it is, is what you get. Enjoy.
I’ve always loved Chorizo sausage. My mom used to add it to hamburger ( which itself was usually soyburger ) for tacos. The taco shells were real corn tortillas fried up into a shell, not the crappy store bought brittle pasty pukes. To this day, I’ve yet to find as good of a taco ( and mom was as white bread as they come ). I got out of the habit of eating chorizo after awhile, but I’ve started again since it is a pretty cheap protein dish. A little goes a long way and you have a lot of fat to go with it. Kind of like pork fat ( the trimmings ), if you can find it at your butcher. If you close your eyes it almost taste like bacon. Between pork fat, eggs and Chorizo, you can make a lot of dinners with affordable animal flesh. The sausage is very spicy and very fatty, so you may not want to use the whole eight or ten once tube in one meal ( but of course, that depends on the number of folks eating ). Since I have to eat it all, not having a refrigerator, we try to use an absorbent starch to cut the grease. If you are twenty years old it might not bother you, but as my stomach can’t handle fat like it used to eating chorizo is like eating a lard stick. Flavored with habanera. This stuff will clear out the sinuses. Cook it for five or ten minutes on low to medium heat, and add it to whatever. Some folks like it in scrambled eggs. I think the best combo is putting it in couscous. Those little wheat balls soak up the fat real good. Rice, not so much. But not bad in rice and refried beans. It really tastes good on pasta of the more Italian persuasion ( I’m partial to mac and cheese with it ).

Now, let’s talk about the making of this delicacy. Remember Vienna Sausage, those nasty little hot dogs in a can? Used to cost like two or three for a dollar before steel prices spiked from energy costs, ores declining in grade and the companies needing to pay back their loans. They had spleen in them. And tasted like it. If you had no teeth, these were great for gumming. Otherwise, they were foul and putrid butcher scrap in a tube. Well, chorizo is far worse. Here are the ingredients. Salivary glands. Lymph nodes. Cheek and tongue fat, flavorings and soy flour and nitrates. This stuff is the last piece of meat rejects sold to the last desperate idiot in line trying to pay with pennies and pocket lint. And yet, it does taste heavenly. Not at all do you get what you pay for in this case. Some genius back in time discovered how to make lemonade out of lemons. Or, in this case, delicious sausage out of butcher scraps fit only for rabid homeless dogs gathering out back in the alley.
Since a minion was so nice to send me a book certificate from Amazon ( electronically, even ) I had to get a great gift with it. I think I got it. Drilling Down, The Gulf Oil Debacle And Our Energy Dilemma. When I had put this on my wish list, I paid no attention to the authors. One of which is Tainter, the guy that wrote on the complexity of civilization and their collapse. That book is old and dull. And very expensive. So, while the first book sounded good all on its own, it sounds even better knowing this could be a cheap update to his original tome. When I read it I’ll of course let you know how it turns out. I know only some of you care. Reading for pleasure isn’t a universal amusement. It used to be five percent of the population. Then the idiots consolidating the presses had to pay back all their loans through more growth so they started publishing putrid swill like vampire novels. So I’m sure that five percent has grown a smidge. But still a minority by any measure. I thought I’d just throw it out there for your consideration.
