Yes. The Communists see this as their time to implement Communism. We don’t.

No. There is no tipping point in our nation. The tipping point took a plane or shuttle out of the nation decades ago.

Not yet. I expect another Waco style massacre will be the new “Ft Sumter” tipping point.

We may be a little *past* the current tipping point.

A tipping point is a fulcrum but it’s not set in stone.
Tipping points themselves change and reset.

“14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. “ — Psalms 27:14.

(All of Psalms 27 is a good read in these times.)

Let’s wait and see what his fiat dicta is and then wait on the House to see if they cave.

This will be tied to the debt ceiling that’s for sure.

I’m curious why you say that. I don’t see any moderator action on it at all.

I think as you saw on Nov 6 that when the low information voter has gained the upper hand, the question has been answered. Baraq O’claus and his RAT party are firmly in control. I defy anyone to explain how this gets reversed.

Are we at the tipping point where the public is fed up with Obama and the media will start reporting facts that are unfavorable to him? NO.

Are we at the tipping point there the takers outnumber the producers and the new majority begins voting more free stuff at the expense of people who work hard for a living? YES, we’re past it.

I think that’s a question that can’t be accurately answered until after you’ve tipped. But it appears that we are getting close.

Romney was right about 47 pecect of the vote supporting for Obama, no matter what. However, Romney underestimated that number, its more like 51 or 52 percent.

>> I defy anyone to explain how this gets reversed.

#1 THE SECULAR (but painful and time-consuming) WAY:

We run completely out of “other people’s money” and there is total apparent economic collapse in the country. I say “apparent” because our REAL wealth is in the significant numbers of HIGH information folks in the US who can, like, actually DO worthwhile stuff that doesn’t involve watching Honey Boo Boo. The majority rebuilds our economy around reality. The low information takers, having no skills and nothing to contribute, either LEARN to get on line and contribute real fast. Or they starve.

#2 THE (MUCH BETTER) WAY:

As described in a “blog” called the Holy Bible, inspired by JEHOVAH, LORD and CREATOR of the universe. We Christians, as the “priests” of our people (we ARE all priests, you know), pray our brains out for each other. We repent of our wickedness, and then as intercessors we humble ourselves and repent of the wickedness of our nation. Daily we practice being Christians (if we have forgotten how, it’s all in the Manual, we just need to read up on it). We begin — or more accurately, GOD working through us begins — another (it’s happened before you know) Christian revival. First by a trickle, then by a torrent, people turn to the One True Light. Satan’s power is diminished and he crawls back under his rock.

Personally, I’m hoping and praying and (imperfectly) working for #2.

Of course, we may have neither #1 nor #2. It’s all up to us, really.

We’re way past the point of no return. It has now devolved into a battle of attrition between the one’s who will uphold the Constitution, and those who want to impose a dictatorship upon us. The war will start with words, and will only escalate after that, as all of players involved will jockey to seize power. It can and will happen here. The question is who will you side with.

There are a few too many metaphors mixed in your post.

You didn’t indicate lack of understanding. You just took me to task for the metaphors. So, yeah, whether intentional or not, that’s pedantic.

On review, my metaphors weren’t mixed at all, as they describe one machine: a tipping point with a fulcrum, which, if it isn’t set in stone, can move to yield aa different tipping point.

I’m sorry I wasn’t clear enough for you, and I’ll be happy to explain in more detail if you’ll kindly be more specific about what part is confusing to you.

Tgere isntIf it’s set in stone it isn’t a machine. Obviously the fulcrum wouldn’t tip, but then it wouldn’t be a fulcrum. There isn’t really anything in heaven or on earth which switches back and forth between being a machine and being unmoving stone, nor machines which people mistake for stone, nor stone objects which people mistake for machines. Therefore it was a mixed metaphor, and in any case nit expressed clearly.

Show me someone accusing others of being inadvertent pedants, and I will show you someone who just doesn’t like being corrected. We are not in your head, and rules of composition and logic exist for a reason: so that we can understand what it is you’re saying. Not everyone who corrected you is Taliban you to task, a harsh mistress, or a “grammar nazi.” They can be people who are merely enforcing the mutual obligation of interlocutors to be comprehensible.

Sorry, what?

>> If it’s set in stone it isn’t a machine.

That’s a ridiculous statement. Machines are set in stone all the time.

>> Obviously the fulcrum wouldn’t tip, but then it wouldn’t be a fulcrum.

Headmaster, aren’t you aware of the simple machines, one of which is the lever, one example of which is a bar over a fulcrum: i.e. a seesaw. If a seesaw doesn’t illustrate a tipping point then the term has no meaning. Here, educate yourself: http://physics.about.com/od/physicsintherealworld/p/simplemachines.htm Your blather clearly shows that you haven’t the foggiest understanding of what a fulcrum really is.

The fulcrum that isn’t “set in stone” would be free to move beneath the seesaw part and change the tipping point. Which was my point.

>> Not everyone who corrected you

Huh? No one but you corrected me. I guess everyone else “got it”.
