It Is Us (an army of clueless, disconnected, ignorant Americans)
The Washington Times ^ | 7/30/2010 | Ted Nugent

Posted on 08/01/2010 6:34:13 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross

Barack Hussein Obama did not sneak into power. An army of clueless, disconnected, ignorant Americans invited him to bring his Marxist, glaringly anti-American jihad into our lives. This president's overtly destructive, clear-and-present-danger agenda is surpassed in transparency only by his ultra-leftist public voting record and overall lifetime conduct of consorting with the enemy as a child and student of Marxism, socialist and racist community organizer, congregant of the blatant America-hating black-theology- and social-justice-spewing Rev. Jeremiah Wright and close personal friend of convicted communist terrorists like Bill Ayers, and by his unflinching appointment of an array of communist czars, including Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunne, et al. So let me get this straight: You claim your intentions were noble because you simply wanted to get your child a puppy but somehow didn't notice that it was foaming at the mouth, and now you're shocked that your child has rabies? I think not. That is not a mistake. It is negligence -- dangerous, life threatening and, I am convinced, downright criminal negligence.

And the price for such negligence is catastrophic, don't you know.

But it gets worse. For, you see, the blame doesn't fall just on the obvious stupidity of our friends and families who voted for this corrupt, death-wish government in whose stranglehold we find ourselves. Ultimately, it is our fault. It is the failure of those of us who know better but have failed miserably to educate our own. Living our lives with a captive audience of family, friends, co-workers, socialites, fellow worshippers at church and other parents at school -- everyone in our everyday walks of life -- far too many of us have allowed uneducated, history-devoid, denial-riddled, fantasy-driven, anti-gun and anti-hunting, anti-capitalism general ignoramuses to remain so and run amok, ...

Nugent makes an impassioned plea to each of us to get out of our routine. The 'sleeping giant' has been awakened. The Tea Parties are a start. We must follow through on our convictions.

Ultimately, the cultural war, as always, is a spiritual war. The difference is prior to 1900, the First and Second Great Awakenings were helped by an overall biblical and Christ consciousness.

But since 1900, were living in the Laodicean era, the first era in 2000 years that has thrown the Bible and Christ overboard. Society continues relentlessly to move in the wrong direction.

However, those of us who know better and are Christ's must go in a different direction. By His mercy and grace, the same God that founded America may extend her life before He comes. May we do our part to shine the light on the right Way and may God in His mercy grant yet another spiritual awakening, the only answer to what is otherwise a certain death march of society.

No it’s not “our” fault. You can’t educate a mindless leftist zombie. They simply need to be put down like the rabid animals they are.

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

Deuteronomy Chapter 6

Deuteronomy 6:1 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

Deuteronomy 6:2 That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

Deuteronomy 6:3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

Deuteronomy 6:6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

Deuteronomy 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Deuteronomy 6:8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

Deuteronomy 6:9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

Deuteronomy 6:10 And it shall be, when the LORD thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,

Deuteronomy 6:11 And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

Deuteronomy 6:12 Then beware lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

Deuteronomy 6:13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

Deuteronomy 6:14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

Deuteronomy 6:15 (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

Deuteronomy 6:16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.

Deuteronomy 6:17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

Deuteronomy 6:18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers,

Deuteronomy 6:19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the LORD hath spoken.

Deuteronomy 6:20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD our God hath commanded you?

Deuteronomy 6:21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh’s bondmen in Egypt; and the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

Deuteronomy 6:22 And the LORD shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

Deuteronomy 6:23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

Deuteronomy 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

Deuteronomy 6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

2 Chronicles 7:14 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.

I wish Ted Nugent would give us all help in explaining the horrors of Obama’s plans for us, starting with explaining Obama’s Deathcare which will put EVERYONE on Medicaid. Obama voters have no idea of what they will face if they or their family members become ill. Lines, lines, lines around the Medicaid buildings; impossibility to get the proper forms in time to save their loved one’s life, etc.

And so much more.

McCain was neck to neck with Obama after Palin was declared the Vice Presidential candidate, it was a horse race and then...Wall Street took a dump because regulators, legislators, investors, news media and whistle blowers were asleep at the wheel. Anyone lamenting the rapid ascendancy of Obama will most likely be paying more attention to the relevant economic indicators in the future. No one is immune from a reality smackdown.

Wrong.

The scumbags who vote for democrats can't be educated.

That why the Founders discouraged giving them the franchise.

The marxists in the White House and in Congress are a direct result of 4 Constitutional amendments and Motor Voter.

The final nail will be giving the franchise to 20 million illegal alien felons to vote even more marxists into power.

This doesn't get solved at the ballot box.

Only taxpayers and veterans vote, in the next Republic.

This one is gone, its just taking a while to die.

The American public, collectively speaking, is shallow and can not handle two thoughts simultaneously. It judges and votes on impressions gathered from a few fleeting observations and on good/ugly looks.

Let’s hope that this same public is able to see the big mistake it made in November 2008 and vote again for change.

The only thing wrong with your analysis is that nothing was done covertly, all the indicators were public knowledge years in advance and Wall Street HAD to be asleep because being unaware of the danger of DERIVATIVE speculative investment and bad loans bundled with good, then insured past any possibility of covering losses which got the loan packages a AAA rating, absolutely indicates an industry full of sleepwalkers.

Nobody saw it coming because nobody WANTED to see it coming, which is a sad fact of economic awareness on the part of people who should have known better and were in a position to raise alarms years before this hit the fan.

Derivative speculative instruments create bubbles and should be heavily regulated if not outlawed. Those bad loans should have been written off and their losses suffered AS THEY OCCURRED instead of being bundled, insured and resold as AAA; a ticking time bomb.

European libs said the same about the American public when they voted for Bush- “Americans are stupid”. Interesting psychology is involved when the losing side accuses the winner of stupidity when the obvious conclusion is that the losing side had to have been stupid otherwise they would have won, eh?

I agree with the sentiment, but sometimes the evidence is overwhelming that it is more than just “your guy didn’t win”. It took amazing stupidity on many, MANY levels to cast a vote for Obama. And it was NOT stupid to choose Bush over AlGore or Kerry.

You forget the fact that a huge swathe of the American population IS clueless politically, and would rather talk about what they saw on TMZ on in whatever sheep show sporting event is going on. We call these folks “swing voters” or, as I like to call them, roadkill.

Completely Wrong.

You need to learn the history of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The meltdown was caused by stupid regulatory policy. When attempts were made to reform the policy Democrats in the US Congress, like Barney Frank, blocked the reforms for political reasons.

The US Government, not Wall Street, is the problem. Notice that the current 0bama "fiscal reform" bill does not fix this derivitives problem? Because the powers that be in DC do not want this direviatives scam fixed. There is too much money to be made using it.

the Community Reinvestment Act along with the still fraudulent Freddie and Fannie POS shops with the help of a democrat controlled congress gave loans to those who could not afford them and end the end what you say is correct - it came apart...redistribution...it was just very timely suspect that someone (soros) and others chose to withdraw billions from the market in one day just before the election to be on Bush's watch and assure the one's crowning

“You can’t educate a mindless leftist zombie. “


A few years ago I would have argued with you. Today, Yes, I agree with you. Some of the “smartest” people I have known have been liberals. They were smartest only in their own minds. They had and still have this mental block that absolutely refuses to acknowledge any facts that contradict their world view.

I used to be the “innocent idealist” breed of leftist. THEY can be rehabilitated, though the scars may last forever.

Then there is the other kind, the hard left breed. They are beyond hope. We would have better luck rehabilitating a pedophile or a Taliban commander.

“Completely Wrong.

Oh stop, no one is completely wrong ever. Remove your hand from the big on/off knife switch in your head and the world will become a whole lot more comprehensible to you.

Now, tell me how those bad loans got bundled together with good loans and then insured so that they were rated AAA. Who came up with that bit of connivance? Anyone with an ounce of analytical ability looks upon AIG’s malfeasance in agreeing to insure those crap bundles with anger and disbelief.

This has NOTHING to do with regulation and A WHOLE LOT to do with a sociopathological ethical framework in the boardrooms of America, period. NOBODY made waves, nobody did what a handful of men did at Lexington and Concord. I think that the Wharton School of Economics and their ilk need to be taken behind the woodshed and encouraged to open a Department of Heroism and Righteousness among all that moldering brick and ivy.

You want a whipping boy, smack AIG around the block. Why that company’s board of directors isn’t looking over their shoulder on the evening commute is beyond me.

Life should be made as dangerous for them as their actions have made it for millions of Americans, including patriots such as yourself.
