Posted on 07/11/2008 3:33:49 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
I just couldn't help thinking about the Von Trapp family fleeing over the mountains to freedom when I read the hilariously melodramatic account by DUmmie Oregone of how his family is now fleeing from the clutches of FISA. Yeah, the FISA bill passes and now the dark cloud of totalitarianism is forcing his family, like the Von Trapp family, to sneak out in the middle of the night to freedom on the other side of the mountains as you can see in his Drama Queen THREAD titled, "A Good Day to say 'Goodbye'." So let us now watch the Von Oregone family sing sad songs as they climb over the mountains to the promised land in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, already humming the tune of "Edelweiss," is in the [brackets]:
A Good Day to say "Goodbye".
[So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.]
Today, with the passing of the FISA bill, will also serve as the anniversary of the last night that I sleep in my own home, shop in my small hometown, and watch our all-American programming. As is stands, our car is packed and our hopes are high, for tomorrow we depart on the last, and most important, leg of a 5 year journey of emigration. Tomorrow, we seek out a promise of upward mobility in a statistical meritocracy, which also means, we are pursuing the American Dream. Like those that came before us to found this country, we are only taking what we can carry with us, and our hopes and dreamswith luck, this will be enough.
[So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, adieu
To you and you and you. ]
When I first considered leaving the United States, it was based upon the premise that our social condition is controlled by a self-sustaining process of greed and poverty, supported by a social order that ensures that each generation, averaged over a long period of time, will be as consistently deprived as the rest. In other words, the conditions of this society ensure posterity will not be much different from the last, and the laws will ensure that nothing will be able to change or stop the cycle. When the structure doesnt allow change, poverty becomes a perpetual cycle, as does wealth (but small cyclic changes are always observed). The bottom line was, change was nothing more than a mere word, and nothing short of a revolution was going to make a difference.
[Recycled Das Krapital as recited by a DUmmie.]
Perhaps I am merely reactionary to the last 8 years of this absurd political experience, which subsequently corresponds to 8 years since I became politically aware. Ive often thought, perhaps I am wrong?. Perhaps we really will not go to war? Perhaps the American people are smart enough to choose a leader who isnt bent on destroying the constitution? Perhaps things really can change around here? Ive tried to put my dogmatic thinking away, and ask honest questions with the assumption that I could be wrong. But time and time again, my assumptions on the goodwill of the country, the intelligence of Americans, and our ability to change the process have been proven correct (and this memorable day is another display of this concept). My entire lack of faith in this country, its people, and its process has been upheld countless times, to such an extent, Ive probably blocked out most of these travesties with the hope of leaving those memories behind.
[Obama supporting the FISA bill was the last straw for this DUmmie. Hee! Hee!]
So now, I look ahead.
[Climb every mountain,
search high and low
Follow every by way,
every path you know ]
I look forward to a life where I do not have to listen to war anthems at the start of every high school sports game, nor witness patriotic firework celebrations that evoke images of Shock and Awe, or rather, the deaths of innocents. I look forward to turning on a news network that covers more than what celebrity received a DUI, and considers the strange possibility that there is more than a single country in this world. I look forward to living in a society that seems to care about their citizens. Without a doubt, I look forward to having Universal Health Care in 3 months from now.
[You're really going to enjoy life in the People's Republic of North Korea.]
And to be clear to those certain to look upon our decision with disdain, this isnt my fight. I was merely born in an area controlled by this regime. It is no more my fight, than the Iraq War is the fight of a small Iraqi child hit by a stray bomb. And this sure as hell isnt my own childs fight, being that I find myself in no position to enroll her in this perpetually losing struggle. If it makes you feel good to suffer and struggle against this government entity, that is your business and yours alone, for not all of us dream of a life of political martyrdom.
[Actually I look upon your decision with LAUGHTER.]
Without a doubt, I do have good memories, and have met many wonderful people. I wish only the best for everyone I have known and this country as a whole (I do hope you prove me wrong). And for those of you who may find you have something in common with me, and the means to do so, pursue your dream with vigor. Life is so short and precious, so much so, that you shouldnt let yourself be part of a machine or torn up by one.
Every morning you greet me,
Small and White,
Clean and bright
You look happy to meet me..]
Live your life and chase your dreams, ensure the safety of your family and loved ones, and let your heart guide you to better pastures. Of course, you will never know how green that grass is until you stand there, and sometimes you will never know how brown your own is until you stand elsewhere. Wherever you stand, stand for yourself and your family.
[And as the Von Oregone family silently sneaks out into the night to escape the clutches of FISA, let us hear from the DUmmie choir chiming in...]
Goodbye and good luck!
[So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye]
So you would blame a Jew for leaving Nazi Germany? I would be out of this police state in a heartbeat if I could.
[Or a Von Trapp leaving Nazi occupied Austria.]
Just heading north To Vancouver Island..leaving in a few hours actually. Wed love to goto Scandinavia...thats where a lot of my family is from. But logistically, it makes things 10X as hard, if not more, so we had to settle for somewhere closer and a bit more familiar. Is that where you are?
[Yeah, why don't you go to Sweden, Von Oregone, and leech off the family Henrickson?]
I'm not ready to move permanently. Our youngest son starts college this fall. But this FISA vote is very disappointing. If enough people abandon Obama because of his vote, it will set up the close race with McCain that will make it possible for the Repubs to steal another one. I do believe that if McCain wins, we might just be headed for Panama on a permanent basis a lot sooner than I'd have thought just a week ago.
[I'm not at all enthusiastic about McCain but you have just given me an incentive to vote for him if it means you will exile yourself to Panama.]
We moved to the outer edges of the Bush Empire, but have found it too expensive, we're going to hang around and see how President Obama does, if that doesnt pan out New Zealand looks right pretty
[Mass exile for the DUmmies if their Obamassiah loses on November 5.]
Things are bad here, certainly the worst I've seen in my lifetime, and frankly, some things are downright insane -- but this is home. I will not be run off by a pack of carpetbagging, gerrymandering, lying, stealing, murdering Republicans, whose problems begin with the erroneous idea that they're better than anyone else.
[A DUmmie with an inferiority complex.]
BC is beautiful! I envy you... But it doesn't mean you have to stop posting here!
[Yeah, we need more of the Von Oregone Drama Queen comedy to feature in the DUmmie FUnnies.]
Right behind you, but with a longer journey. We're afraid that Canada is too close and too dependent on this fascist state to resist when the real shit starts.
[The People's Republic of North Korea is a good distance from this fascist state.]
If McCain wins in November, leaving will seem a lot more necessary. No doubt in my mind he will start something worse than even GWB did. For as angry as GW is, I think McCain is an even darker soul. How horrible is that?
[Hey! What happened to all that recent DUmmie confidence that an Obama win was a sure thing?]
We leave September 11th for our move to Europe. Just because the flights were cheaper, not for any grand statement.
[The family Henrickson is waiting for you in Sweden with open arms.]
I left the USA 09/30/2005. Took the easy way. By marriage. But in other ways, it hasn't been easy, since everything here is so different, including the language. But that's part of the challenge, and the fun. And I've recently gained permanent residency in my new hometown Kiev, Ukraine. I'm under no illusions that things are perfect here, or will be anytime soon.
[Enjoying the chicken Kiev?]
I am leaving for Europe in September. Very lucky to have the option.I share every sentiment you have expressed. Like you, my plans were made long ago.My second choice would be the British Columbian Islands. There are so many gems. I may end up there yet.
[The FUnnie thing here is that these DUmmies are going into exile BEFORE the election. So much for their confidence in the victory of the Obamassiah.]
It's a very sick country and I see nothing happening to move it back to anything resembling what it once was. The healthiest thing to do is to leave a sick country.
[Yup! Absolutely no confidence in redemption by the beloved Obamassiah.]
I would be long gone, 'cept for this chain around my ankle ...you see, I am a proletariat and have no money to have traveled, much less move out of the country.
[It doesn't take much money to buy a backpack and hiking shoes to climb over the mountains to freedom.]
God Save The Queen!
[God Save The Drama Queen!]
You’re up early this morning
Wow, I was online when you posted, read it and still reply this early.
Maybe we can encourage this trend :-)
OK, now that’s some funny stuff right there. Shaking my head and laughing.
You nailed it - Drama Queen is spot on.
I have to be. Last week my wife (without telling me) bought a new car and a vacation condo. Now I have to work much earlier just to pay the bills.
He isn’t going anywhere. He just wants to rant.
I feel for you. I can’t afford either. I wouldn’t want the condo but my vehicles are both going downhill fast but my heating oil budget makes it impossible to even consider a car loan for at least a year. If oil prices don’t go down I’m screwed.
Hahahaha...this DUmmie moves to a country that has been fighting for centuries and now is right in the middle of a new Cold War between the US and Russia...with the hated US as their supporter. Wonder how this DUmmie will feel when the US saves her a$$?
The irony is that FISA only grants the President powers that the securuty services of virtually every other country in the world, including Canada, England and Sweden have as a matter of course and that no one seriously questions.
If you think the security services of Panama are going to be more considerate of your privacy than in this country it clearly demonstrates that you are seriously delusional.
“If you think the security services of Panama are going to be more considerate of your privacy than in this country it clearly demonstrates that you are seriously delusional.”
Ha, excellent point. I can hear this DUmmie now, being arrested in Panama, screaming “but I’m am American citizen.”
In other words, everything they own.
Mandatory marriage counseling. I’d be wearing my wife’s skin for a hat if she pulled that crap on me. =D
Charging the 2000 presidential election was 'rigged', the DUmmies swore they were not going to allow it to happen again in 2004 (Kerry defeated like Al Gore in 2000).

"if it is decided to fight, be prepared to fight, bring a backpack, entrenching tool, tent, and other equipment of an Infantrymen. You will need it for Bush and his supporters decides it is better to fight than to accept the will of the people, the fight to overthrow them will be a long fight."
"...it takes three things to overthrow a tyrant;...
1. Popular support, you must have the majority of the people on your side (i.e. Democracy, even the Communists and Islamics both try to show they have the Support of the Majority of the People),
2. Organization to perform the overthrow (This is why Madison wrote the First like he did, these are HOW you organize an opposition. Without the First it is hard to organize an opposition and any resistence organized in absence of the rights stated in the First tend to be as tyrannical as what you are opposing)
3. Weapons to push the issue if the leadership that is being overthrown tries to use force to stay in power. You have to be willing to answer force with force. Weapons do not overthrow a tyrant, weapons just protect the people who are overthrowing a tyrant."
"Now, you may say "Hay, you are talking about Islamic and/or Communists groups not 'Western Liberal resistence groups'". And you would be correct. As I said in the beginning the first step in a guerilla war against a tyrant is to first organize. The Islamic and Communists Groups were the best at organizing people. "Western Liberal Resistence Groups" were less effective in organizing resistence groups (And less liked by the CIA and KGB who tended to fund these groups, remember any war is expensive, money talks).
Furthermore since most Islamic and Communist groups tend to be the first groups outlawed they tend to go underground first. Once underground they start to organize and as other groups are outlawed those groups tend to join the opposition which tends to be either Islamic or Communistic. Once outlawed these groups also tend to be controlled by the most fanatic opponents of the Tyrants and these tend to be either Islamic or Communistic. Thus to oppose the Tyrants you have to support a side with enough discipline to get the job done and that tend to be Communist or Islamic."
"...Any weapons we resort to must be "real" weapons not pistols. i.e. Rifles and shotguns. Due to concerns of re-supply (you have to plan for a long battle) such weapons should be limited to very small number of different rounds. Generally restrict yourself to the following rounds:
5.56x 45 (.223 Remington) 7.62x 63 (30-06) 7.62x 51 (.308 Winchester or 7.62 NATO) 7.62 x 39 (7.62mm Russian 7.62 AK Round) 12 Gauge Shotgun. 30-30 Winchester."
"You have more weapons in the above calibers than any other calibers thus should be your first choice in weapons. Saying this I must point out I like the 7x57 and 7.92x57 Mauser rounds and the M1898 Mauser Bolt action Rifle, but the 7.92 (sometime called 8mm Mauser) but these rounds are less common than the above and thus harder to obtain when re-supply is needed (and re-supply will be needed if the struggle lasts for any length of time).
Re-supply of Ammunition has always been the bane of any military operations. Without ammunition you can not fight. To get you ammunition, it is easier if we can keep the number of different rounds to a minimum (i.e. 5.56x45 and 7.62x51). I list the 30-06 and 30-30 winchester rounds for these are two VERY popular rounds and ammunition for both are easy to obtain (the same with the 12 Gauge shotgun). I list the 7.62 AK round do to the huge number of SKSs and AKs imported since the fall of the Soviet Union. I list it for while there are probably more 30-30s and 30-06 rifles out they than 7.62 Aks and SKSs, the Aks and SKSs may very while outnumber the rifles in 5.56x45 and 7.62 NATO.
Also, if it is decided to fight, be prepared to fight, bring a backpack, entrenching tool, tent, and other equipment of an Infantrymen. You will need it for Bush and his supporters decides it is better to fight than to accept the will of the people, the fight to overthrow them will be a long fight."
