Hey Laz ... I can’t tell you how happy I am post No. 2 asked why you didn’t ping “him”. It’s like I’m right back where I started!

And that could be a good thing. Just seeing some of the names on this thread sure does my heart good. =)

If I could just say one thing for now — hope’s a cardinal virtue. Have to have hope even if there’s no real cause for optimism. In faith and love, bearing with each other through the bond of peace, we can have real joy always — a song at the scaffold even — instead of being dread cynical which is ultimately self-defeating, really.

It’s never “over” ... until the saints go marching in, maybe.

Give me your best advice on where I should post red meat for you with the understanding that (1) I’m not interested in elections; (2) I am always happy to back up with facts or at least a solid thesis whatever I post on the fly; and (3) I too am more interested in the spiritual and philosophical battle at the heart of all affairs concerning human hearts and conscience but don’t wish to be relegated to the Religion forum as a result.

No problems with posting some Catholic stuff there — I *really* miss hanging out with practicing Catholics — but I do observe here more than I post since my account was reupped. I know that even the ghettos have more rulz than they used to ...

I can put up with a few rules in order to relish me some JohnRob code but .... within reason. We’ll see how it goes.

Trust you and yours have been well and happy.

(Thanks you guys, KC and Annalex, for the heads-up ... got a kick out of the thread. Especially post No. 2. Ah, the good old days when everyone thought I was a guy. Appreciated the kind words on this thread more than anyone knows. =)

[...] what a nation does to unwind this horrifying and seemingly inexorable push to Marxist/Fascist control.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,
and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

My first reaction to “askel5” was that it is a wayward carny from New Orleans whose name is Axel.

Work your way up gradually to two or three grams of Vitamin C every day. Take echinacea, widely available at drug stores, and a
B multivitamin, and you will slash your incidence of catching colds to the bone. I haven't had a cold for at least seven years, and my
Hubby is similarly armed against the pestilence at his job where at least a dozen people (out of 115) are working sick at any given
time.

Best wishes knocking your viruses down. Linus Pauling was right. Vitamin C works, and it will be as good as gold when TSHTF,
along with fish oil capsules and other really helpful vitamins and supplements.

</tangent - sorry Laz!>

Grammar people, watch your grammar!

It's "you're" short for "you are" ...

Take your puffed up ...
Griffin is as dubious a source as any; instead of arguing his merit you cast insults ... if you want to hitch your wagon to the irreputable Griffin go right ahead.

As Griffin is a source of many conspiracy theories involving the Fed, just remember:

Conspiracy theories are the favored tools of the weak-minded.

I still have no respect for your puffed up, arrogant, condescending opinion. Griffin is no guru, but I certainly respect what he has said more than anything you’ve written. You sound jealous that he has recognition by some ... or is that your job, to throw water on the theories that the fed is a corrupt oligarchical cabal?

Thanks for the info, TOL. I usually load up on C at the earliest hint and rarely get sick or a cold. “C” is amazing. I was late this time and was a little run down from a difficult work schedule.

Good to see you back Askel5! Great thread. Lots of good posts/advice

Very eye opening on the communist goals.

Okay. I had, as I related to ya, a big Production issue at the place at which I work, so I was only lightly available the lasy 36 hours.... but, I am back.

Give me your best advice on where I should post red meat for you with the understanding that (1) I’m not interested in elections; (2) I am always happy to back up with facts or at least a solid thesis whatever I post on the fly; and (3) I too am more interested in the spiritual and philosophical battle at the heart of all affairs concerning human hearts and conscience but don’t wish to be relegated to the Religion forum as a result

I guess what I'm looking for is solutions to the Gramscian gradualism to liberalism, communism, and immorality we find ourselves in.

Whatever forum you think is appropriate, and whatever you can offer, would be the way to go. I guess we're brainstorming.

Curiously, I recall seeing someone mention that way back in 2001 or 2002. I don't remember if bmwcyle said it was a mistake or on purpose, but I do recall the original observer quite amused at how our eyes complete imperfect words.

Hi, Askel5 - good to see you here again. Glad you like my moniker. You're one of the few to appreciate the fact that I adopted it in the tongue-in-cheek spirit of Ambrose Bierce's definition. I do miss the level of discourse that we once enjoyed here. Some of us really got the import and the implications of the destructive Gramscian meme, but as time went on, it seemed to me that there was a larger game afoot. Not one buried in the fever swamps of conspiricists imaginations, but one that seemed to point to something that had its foundation in the darker side of human nature. Thus, my first take on what that might be. As a first approximation, this little essay, " Killers Without Conscience - 2010 got a lot of the fundamentals right. The entire thread contains some worthy discussion of the sort we used to enjoy here. The ideas found in that one are further developed here: Don't Converge the Streams

Your observations and opinions would be highly valued.

Regards - Ward

Putin is probably snickering, and saying: "They just thought they won the cold war."

Absolutely laughing his butt off...

If Russia were truly done with Communism and are now “Capitalists”, why would they still support Marxist dictatorships such as Venezuela, Cuba, other far left regimes throughout Latin America, the ChiComs and North Korea? Their criticisms of Obama being a Socialist are bogus. If they really are now opposed to Socialism/Communism they would join us (pre-Obama) in condemning these regimes, not help build them up.

Did Communism Fake Its Own Death in 1991?
American Thinker ^ | January 16, 2010 | Jason McNew

In a [] 1984 book [New Lies for Old], ex-KGB Major Anatoliy Golitsyn predicted the liberalization of the Soviet Bloc and claimed that it would be a strategic deception. ..."

"Golitsyn's argument was that beginning in about 1960, the Soviet Union embarked on a strategy of massive long-range strategic deception which would span several decades and result in the destruction of Western capitalism and the erection of a communist world government."

"Golitsyn published his second book, The Perestroika Deception, after the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991. This book contained further analysis of the liberalization, in addition to previously classified memoranda submitted by Golitsyn to the CIA. The two books must be read together to get a complete picture of Golitsyn's thesis."

I could not get the link to the article by Beichman to work, but found this one:
