Default #1 Giving Things Away Thread

This is a thread for things you gave away. As a rule, don't give people things in a state you wouldn't want or tolerate yourself - that's just disrespectful.

Today, I gave away, to Salvation Army,

- 1 straw cowboy hat

- 1 nice light jacket

- 1 very nice garment bag

And SA let me take some boxes I can use to store up some books.

Win-win!

It turns out one doesn't actually wear straw cowboy hats nearly as often as one would think.

Gave a truck away once. It wasn't anything great but it still ran ok. Little mazda b2000 and it looked junky but it ran alright. This kid was my sister's friend's little cousin and he just got his license but didn't have much money to work with. It had been sitting in my dad's yard for a while, needed to go anyway. Him and his brother had to change a flat and screw with the carburator but they had it running in a half hour and the kid seemed really happy about it. Free truck!

What would happen in the US if you had these prices?

In US dollars February 2014

Norway $10.94 gallon

Italy $9.22

Holland $9.17

Denmark $8,80

Germany $8.28

UK $8.18

Serbia $6.93

Even a country like Australia is $5.21 and New Zealand $6.98

And Russia is $4.38


You guys still have it good in terms of price.

Yep. Still ok here in Aus. $1.40/ $1.60 per litre.

My parents gave away parts of 1969 rover and V8 engine that worked 100% for FREE!!!! Then the people had the nerve to ask for our second V8 motor in return for buying a second hand bed for $150. We decline that offer. How rude!

I was talking to a pro-White the other day about a plan for racially loyal Whites to give things away only to poor White people.

We'd collect stuff and take it to places where homeless Whites hang out.

Sounds like I missed out by not mentioning this to Alex sooner.

Blame government. It alone bears responsibility for your high costs.

The old U.S. was so much better than Europe than most ways, it's not even funny. Unfortunately we are getting more like you with the socialism. Subsidizing the lowest forms of human shit, not just non-white shit either, white shit too.

The same thing that happened in all of those countries. People would drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars, or turbo diesel, since diesel is cheaper.

I don't even know how you can afford to drive at those prices - which is the point. Socialists/communists don't like people being able to move freely, and gas taxes is one way to prevent that. That's why they're popular with communists like Al Gore. This global warming horseshit is another way to push the same policy.

Not to mention, prices like that would multiply through the economy as we have massive numbers of trucks cris-crossing the country 24/7 to supply food and everything else.

The important thing to remember: these gas prices are not driven by the market, they're driven by government taxes and artificial restrictions on supply.

That's a great idea. It's already being done by Salvation Army and your local churches. But they will feed anyone who shows up. Sometimes they will demand a local ID.

A white pantry will definitely work. People have LOTS of stuff to give away. Every time I've given stuff to SA, other people were there doing the same thing at the same time. And poor people get a lot of use out of SA - it's a very useful service to them, and it doesn't cost the richer folks any higher taxes. So it works practically and theoretically.

The biggest problem with the white community is somehow the churches became the ones associated with helping people and answering the deep questions. Yet they are not that good at the first part and wholly unsuited to the second part.

Our race can and must do better than the christian cult.

Im pretty sure you would see mass panic, riots and possible revolution in the US if gas prices went up to European levels.

At least if the money from these insane gas taxes were used to help stimulate the birthrate of white people and sterilize gypsies I wouldn't mind, but of course the opposite happens, money is poured into social programs for these parasites, in addition to it going to enemy state media and various anti nationalist and pro homosexual orgs.

Yes, food prices would rise drastically and your entire economy would collapse, which I guess would be looked at as being a positive thing by some in the 'Movement'.

That is true, but collusion and monopoly by well established comapanies who do not allow independents to enter the market is also a factor. The last thing the big boys, many of who also benefit from corporate welfare, want is fair competition.

sorry to go off topic

Twice a year, we have the kids box up toys and stuffed animals they no longer play with and donate them to Goodwill and Salvation Army. At the same time we donate lightly used items we no longer require for the home. For the kids it is an exercise on the 'feel good' benefits of a giving heart while making our home less a disaster area of 'things'. The older I get, the more I realize we don't own things, things own us.

It wouldn't happen - it couldn't. The country is simply too big. Too dependent on trucks delivering supplies. No would be able to afford food or anything else if gas were $10 a gallon. If they even tried, environmentalism would get real unpopular real quickly. People would be drilling in their own yards to find oil.

Money in the us goes to muds and defective whites. It also goes into the vast wasteland of the US military, see the Stockman article Serbian posted in the Ukrainian thread.

If nazism is nothing but a welfare program for the left half the bell curve, then what good is it? This is a real theoretical problem with white politics. Well, not for me, I have the solution. I don't see much difference between what some of these NS want and what we have right now.

People wouldn't put up with it. There would just be a black economy. It would not be politically possible to do with absolute tyrannical control, people wouldn't accept it. The US is just too spread out. Europe is much more compact and populated. We need to travel, we can't have gas being extremely expensive. Sure, we should do more locally and we do. Also, business does what it can to save on fuel costs with just-in-time delivery chain technology (I used to write about this professionally) and, I just saw the other day, Walmart is developing trucks that get better gas mileage, they have a different wind profile. I should have posted that.

Politicians just make things worse. Let the market determine the price of gas. The US has poured tens of billions into alternative fuels, which is pure pork barrel politics. Air and sun can never supply more than fraction of the power needed. The pink oilers are just socialists by another name, the market moves right around them, as always. The last thing we need are self-important socialist experts running our economy. The human curse is there is never a shortage of people with no doubt about their great ability to solve any problem, but we saw what happened in the Soviet Union. Of course, no one learned from that.

I believe in the US that legal restrictions imposed by environmental groups are a far great problem.

That's quite true. Particularly if you have any health or other limitations, this hits you full force - how much psychic energy is involved with keeping material things in order. When you put your full attention on the subject, often you realize, no, I really don't need this thing. If it doesn't add value to your life, as the minimalists phrase it, why keep it around? Sell it for money or give it to people who it will add value to, or junk it.

This week I gave away some wingtips I've had for twenty years but not worn much and a very interesting small lampshade. Why interesting? Because I'm not sure what it was made of. Hopefully not a defunct jew.

Gave away a hefty bag full of clothes to the Salvation Army. Not my own, ones I had dived various places. I washed them, they're all wearable, no garbage. Tshirts, jeans, hoodies, collared shirts, athletic gear. I would prefer to give this stuff to a pro-White cause (like Golden Dawn in NYC), but the shipping cost would make the idea ridiculous, so the best thing is to give it to people helping the people in this local area (which is 90%+ white). Was excited to see my tiny, interesting lampshade out for sale for $1.00.

Most of these clothes were discarded by comparatively richer, suburban college kids from KC/Stl, they tend to dump stuff at the end of semesters. They can only pack so much in their cars, and they will throw out plenty of perfectly good clothes, shoes and blankets. Landlords will sometimes do the same. I will repurpose whatever I come across that can be turned to white advantage, whether my own or someone else's. I feel sick to my stomach the way some people do when they see edematous African niglets when I see perfectly good pairs of shoes discarded. I mean, I grew up fairly well off by comparison to many, but the idea of losing shoes or throwing them away, is so extra-galaxially beyond young-me's comprehension - I can't even imagine the parental reaction.

This may seem silly or aesthetically unappealing to Southerners/Catholics (who tend to regard the spirit I'm personifying and praising here as contemptible penny pinching in a world made for connoisseurs) but to me, it's a real part of my/our Northwestern European heritage (German/English) - being frugal, using things up, fixing them, cleaning them. I really enjoy it, it's like putting stuff we talk about into practice. I don't claim any high spiritual purpose, I'm mainly doing this to find stuff to use myself or to sell, but that only ends up being about 20% of what I come across. The rest I give away.

Mixed motives are more reliable than idealism. Most of the good done for humanity is done not by the so-called saints but by 'greedy' businessmen. That's an adult truth, though it make commie and christian cry alike.

Notice: Salvation Army does not give things away: it sells them, albeit at a comparatively low cost. That's actually a better way to do things, as it brings discipline to both parties involved in the transaction.

I recently gave away about half of my life.
This is shit I've been hauling around with me for years, but rarely use these days.
A nice TV, countless "second tier" power tools, a heavy duty stereo system, (I don't blast too much music anymore), boxes of old clothes (most of which no longer fit, but I hauled them around anyways), about 500lbs. of assorted shit out of my garage, on and on.
It was a very cathartic experience.

These days I find I'm much happier with just a few, useful, high quality items at hand.
Ones I can actually use.

Fuck all that encumbrance.

Exactly! You've got the spirit. It is positively liberating.

I can't believe I dragged around so many old electronics from my old business. All of them worth nothing, basically. It's an nutty mentality, but hard to get free from - the idea that, sometime in the future I will need/use this again. Um...no, you really won't. The only thing I have continually found useful that I saved and dragged around for decades from my older stuff has been...envelopes. Everything else, all the old computer gear etc - never used it, just one big 15-year, dragaround hassle. D'oh is me.

The rule of thumb the minimalist types goes by is that if you don't use something at least once a year, get rid of it. Some say six months.

Especially the electronic stuff - it's rapidly outmoded. You can't really make any money selling it. It can take up a huge amount of space. The fact that one paid thousands for something in (1992) doesn't mean a damn thing in 2014. What does it do for you now? It, uh, takes up lots of space? Get rid of it then!

What you want is a lot of money and freedom, not a lot of goods. That's one way to look at it. I guess if you have billions like Jay Leno you can maintain a fleet of classic cars, but to me, I don't want to collect anything.

Then you can concentrate on what you really want to do with your life and time - your work, whatever that is. Your relationships with good people. Your garden. Whatever it is that you do.

I gave away half a table and a microwave!

Tried to sell it, failed. Tried to sell it for less. Failed. Tried to sell it for less with a microwave and beach parasol and two hospital crutches. Failed. Tried to give it away, slapped a "Free Kitten" sign on it. Finally, someone took the table support and microwave, left the glass. Threw the glass away so it wouldn't get mowed by accident.

Life. Why you gotta be so hard?
