Timely distractions to further cloud any meaningful enquiries into the abridgment of our liberty. On and on it seems to go……………..

SERIOUSLY THIS RESONATES. I HAD MOSTLY GIVEN UP. THE MEDIA SATURATION AND MY OWN PERSONAL STRUGGLES WITH HEALTH AND FAMILY DEATH HAD ROBBED ME OF ENERGY, FOCUS & VITALITY….EVEN HOPE.
DAMN, MAYBE THERE IS HOPE? I BELIEVE THINGS ARE DANGEROUS AND LOOMING. RISE UP FOR LIBERTY. RISE UP FOR COMMON SENSE. WAY TO GO MS. GELLER.

“When this war ends, and it won’t be long, the global economic and financial system will be the victor. Once that occurs, the nation-states of the West will join those of the global south as hollow states: mere shells of states that serve only to enforce the interests of the global economic system. These new states, more market-states than nation-states, will offer citizens a mere vestige of the public goods they offered historically. Incomes will fall to developing world levels (made easy to due to highly portable productivity), and wealth will stratify. Regulatory protections will be weak. Civil service pensions will be erased and corruption will reign. The once dominant militaries of the West will be reduced to a small fraction of their current size, and their focus will be on the maintenance of internal control rather than on external threats. The clear and unambiguous message to every citizen of the West will be:
You are on your own. You are in direct competition with everyone else in the world…” Global Guerrillas

Was watching a show re Wild Pacific. Part of this highlighted natives on small island bobbing around catching fish by what I will call primitive means and supplying the village. Good for them. They don’t want boats, rods, rafts, reels fine. But, the expressed point was industrial nations could learn something from this to live within their means and not take from others. WTF! This regressive push toward backyard gardens and all the rest of the primitivism is not about a simple providing for self and the beauty of taking care of self….no….it is always a bigger issue of reducing back to a simpler time so others in the community can have theirs. You really don’t need all that food, or stuff. Seriously, what a selfish bastard you are! We are a meant to be bobbing around in our lagoon fishing for the global village. Over consumption is a waste…but fuck you! It is my waste. I owe nothing to anyone else by me and mine. I am responsible to cut my waste in order to have more for me and mine. Not for the damn State or Global World Order. Now it is the subtle and not so subtle manipulation of our guilt. No damn doubt in my mind the propaganda is a prelude to when self sufficiency is not for freedom but for servitude to the lowest common denominator.

Well, I already know what the pinched, earnest one’s think. Excellent. Be afraid pious, panty wasted hipsters and yuppies. To the State…you are already afraid. Hence the momentum to steam roll our freedoms…to overcome the built in inertia….to subvert our liberty. Individual Liberty…screw the ‘community’…screw the group.

Daily Kos ‘Our long national nightmare is over’ (Wake Up Republicans…Do You Remember How To Articulate?)
From The Daily Kos:
“The great undoing has begun:
Obama Positions Himself to Quickly Reverse Bush Actions on Environmental, Social Issues
By Ceci Connolly and R. Jeffrey Smith
Washington Post Staff Writers
Sunday, November 9, 2008
‘Transition advisers to President-elect Barack Obama have compiled a list of about 200 Bush administration actions and executive orders that could be swiftly undone to reverse the president on climate change, stem cell research, reproductive rights and other issues, according to congressional Democrats, campaign aides and experts working with the transition team.
A team of four dozen advisers, working for months in virtual solitude, set out to identify regulatory and policy changes Obama could implement soon after his inauguration. The team is now consulting with liberal advocacy groups, Capitol Hill staffers and potential agency chiefs to prioritize those they regard as the most onerous or ideologically offensive, said a top transition official who was not permitted to speak on the record about the inner workings of the transition.’
‘Elections, my friends, have consequences.’ http://www.dailykos.com/
——-‘In my view, the Republicans’ problem doesn’t lie with their leadership, it lies in their inability in recent years to articulate conservative principles and apply them to legislation in a way that the American people find persuasive. To a great extent, their ability to do this was undermined by the fact that some Republicans were more interested in cementing their own popularity through spending increases. Being in the minority may well free Republicans to go back to taking principled, conservative stands on legislation. If so, good leadership will be important, but so will having a number of articulate, persuasive spokesmen to frame the issues and the make the case for the Republican side in a way that resonates with the public.’ http://www.powerlineblog.com/
Judging from the above nugget at the Daily Kos, the Repub’s better get their collective shit together and quick. If they plan on standing around to articulate Alexander Hamilton and Reagan….they are pathetically out of practice. Dump Boehner. This is the game…the big one. If you are not upto it…stand aside, if you have one damn McCain bone in your body…stand aside. If you haven’t guessed, unless you are going to build a kickass coalition with Blue Dogs, any bipartisan BS or compromise is not in the cards for the Regressives…play that game and they will knee cap you and then we will tar and feather you. Fight or get the hell out of the way. Excuse the asshole with the sign….but, he isn’t going to care about your sensibilities, is he now?
Dick Armey in the WSJ (Bush’s Compassionate Conservatism phoney Neo Drivel) & Reject the Neo Aristo’s & Screw Angleou, Too!
Someone within the Republican Party or whatever Party captures the Conservative’s imagination must call BS on the Neo Con’s. Only Libertarians and Paleo’s delight in this and for me they seem to take on as much glee as a Leftist in highlighting the downfall of the Party. That does not set well with me…there is something there as smelly as a Neo for me…not sure what it is…almost an arrogant-elitism equal to the Left….an attitude not borne of middle America. Is there just no end to the power addiction and arrogance of the Right and the Left? We have become too big and this only invites power whores that envision reshaping in images that never will resonate with Americans.
Ok, so Armey didn’t say exactly what the header says. But, it was close enough. Where in the hell has Dick Armey been for 8 damn years while Bush et al drove the Party over the cliff? I agree with much of what Armey say re limited government, spending and why the Party lost control in 2006. BUT, I do not see it remarked upon about something else I recall in 2006..something that was pounded upon for months and went unaswered: Republican Hypocrisy. The hypocrisy that any middle American get pissed off about and that any Liberal enjoys pointing too. Fecking queer (no offense to queers) and self rightous congressmen chasing boys and doing the foot tap in bathroom stalls was the turning point!! Do you remember that? American’s Hate Hypocrisy….I do!!!!!
That is one reason why religion, whether it is an under pinning to values or not, must be reduced as a focal point in Republican pronouncements. Constantly pontificating over morals, values, religion only sets every moralistic spewer up for the hypocrisy label. Every bit as damaging as spending like a drunken sailor on a whore, while in port. Stop with the bible waving…enough! Live it and shut up already.
Another thing: I am sickened by the adoration of a single human to save us (Obama) and would be equally sickened by the adoration of a messiah from the Right. Would Reagan really want all this adoration? There is something deplorably weak about the masses chasing a single person and bland words. Principles, principles, principles not a person.
What Wonderful, Direct Writing Below. To the Point. Laser Precise. Read it and reject the Aristo’s
“Our career-serving political class, the education establishment, the traditional news media, the people responsible for (in a good and in a bad way) for our movies and television entertainment — it seems of late that too many of them are singing with the same voice and the same song. Different words, perhaps, and out of some obscure motivation, but all to the same end, and now and again I detect some whisper of the same motivating contempt for the American public. Contempt for our tastes or lack of same, of our habits in shopping, amusing ourselves, our persistent attachment to religious beliefs, to habits of self-sufficiency, and our stubborn disinclination to do or believe as our self-nominated betters dictate — it’s all on very ugly display. The media gang-up on Joe the Plumber, for having the impertinence to ask a tough question of the favored candidate was just the most recent and most open, and the most unsettling display.
Really, what do these new aristos expect of the masses, the proletariat, the common citizenry? More and more I have the feeling that we are seen as a kind of herd animal, to be periodically sheared like sheep, relieved of whatever fleece or funds that the new aristos feel they could make better use of, to do as we are told, to not really consider our property, our children, or our earnings as our own. If the aristos decide that they require such things to be given up… well, then, fall in line the loyal peasantry. And don’t forget to smile.”
“Maya Angelou No Longer Ashamed of America
There is one bright side to the Moonbat Messiah’s catastrophic election, other than not having to pretend anymore not to detest John McCain. Now Maya Angelou doesn’t have to be ashamed of her country. Here she goes:
I realized almost within a minute, I don’t have to apologize for my country when I’m abroad. I can say, “I belong to a great country,” and there are Europeans who say, “Aren’t you glad to be here in France where we don’t have the racism you live under? Aren’t you glad you’re here in Britain?” I mean, I’ve been on the defensive so long. But this time I can say, “I am an American, look at us, look at what we’ve just achieved.”
What we’ve achieved: we elected a completely unqualified, ultra-left punk on the basis of his skin color. Now European countries will have to elect inexperienced blacks or Arabs with radical backgrounds to prove they’re as suicidally politically correct as we are, or we can look down our noses at them for a change.
To borrow from Michelle Obama, for the first time in my adult life, I’m not proud of my country.”
