the circus continues

I doubt it. I have a hard time buying this. YMMV…

Politics: Comments Overheard

While wading through the comments on this over at CA’s Intel Hub, Mike said:

I may be wrong, but I do believe Obama will pull this off.

What Carter could not do, Obama will: utilize the full power of the State (DOJ Civil Rights Division, for example), the full power of the MSM, the full power of racial invective, and the tools of mass mobilization (FB, and so on) to eke out a victory in November. As sad as it sounds, the U.S. of 2012 is no longer the U.S. of 1980 — and 2008 proved it.

The need for a Nietzschean “Dear Leader” is palpable. Vendors outside the DNC were selling hagiographic memorabilia of Obama using John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world…”) to pose Obama as the Son of God. Inside the Convention, the Dems were doing one better: removing “God” from their platform, leaving Government and Obama as the new implicit Deity. Villaraigosa rammed “God” back in there, but he did so over the protests of most of the delegates — and we all know that the Dems put it back in for tactical reasons, not because they truly have a God aside from Obama. It doesn’t get more unhinged than that; it’s mass psychosis, and most of the country is infected with it. Obama is the beneficiary, and a transitory one at that, but he is a useful marker of our decline: a Nation that can elect an Obama is a Nation that will not last long. Hence the need to prepare for the eventual break-up of the U.S.

I am not particularly religious, but even I am scared as hell of the Dems now. This hunger to deify a mortal man signals the end of any republican inclination in a large percentage of the American populace, just as the same urge to deification signaled the end of the Roman Republic. History doesn’t always repeat, but it does rhyme.

And I hope we all are clear on what such a population is capable of.

Especially this:

That’s some scary excrement right there.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Whenever man is given the spotlight, our true nature shines through and literally millions die. It. Happens. Every. Damn. Time. Why would this time be any different? Add our current tech levels to that equation and you have the formula for mass slaughter on a historically epic scale.

This is not an, “he must be defeated at any cost…” post either. The other guy is just as bad – only delaying the inevitable. It’s the philosophical construct here.

The state is not God. It will never be. Man is imperfect and deeply flawed. Relying on the morality of either of those will cause civilization to tumble.

 

 

The Heating of the Rhetoric

In my life, I never thought I would see an article like this out in the open and not buried down in some obscure, tinfoil hat publication:

Whatever chicanery Obama and his investors may be contemplating, it will probably unfold against some gargantuan crisis, manufactured or otherwise.  So cast your mind back to September 11, 2001, the day of the New York mayoral primary.

I fear some of this may come to fruition between now and January 2013.

Weekend Radar

Going to be fairly warm down here in Atlanta.

I plan on getting in a few mountain biking miles with my oldest and maybe some trail time practicing bushcraft like skills. There is PT in everything this time of year in the south. It becomes an endurance challenge for simple excursions – especially with little girls.

Look out for Greece & Spain before Sunday is out. It won’t be the end of the EU or Euro, but more of a weather vane of the next two quarters.

I had thought about commenting on yesterday’s amnesty announcement, and then I read this here at the Belmont Club via CA. Like CA says, the comments are indeed priceless. Though, this latest vote buying move may be for naught if Vox’s prediction comes true. I’m not sure if I buy that. There doesn’t seem to be enough momentum in the political sphere to accomplish something so drastic this close to the election. I do however, personally believe, that despite anything the republicans (in name only) throw out there, President Urkle will be reelected despite actual vote count…
