Finally, an analogy most of brain-dead America can understand.

Thanks for posting this.

In keeping with the Star Wars theme, just wait until Obama is given “emergency powers” that he never revokes!

I teach the High School Sunday School class at church. We were discussing the differences between our generations, and I told them that when I was young, I recall that my parents’ generation thought we were going to ruin the country. Then I told them my parents were right. Sorry, kids. We spent it all and left you nothing.

The kids didn’t like that very much.

And may the new Emperor get the same fate as the old Emperor.

“retirement benefits accrued”

Not really accrued. I don’t know if they’re even explicitly promised, but maybe. But this accrued idea derives from the fantasy that you are paying into a system and that you will be payed back as if it were the “insurance” program it was initially sold as. All that actually is happening is that you were taxed as with every other tax you paid, and the government is taxing people now out of which it may or may not pay you. I won’t say pay you back for there is no back. You assumed they would pay you like they payed others before because, hey, governments don’t go broke. Except all the time, only not this one because it is magical.

The best thing to my mind would be to repudiate our obligations. Simply refuse to honor them. Which is dishonorable, but the truly dishonorable choices were the ones we’ve already made. Plus, we’ve done it before. Anyone remember the gold standard? I didn’t think so.

The Jedi Mind Trick is in the perception individual Americans have that instead of representing a slice of America, the MSM is America. Hence a liberal minority is primed to get away with seizing power outside the election process, whether it's via judicial activism or vote ginning and fraud.

If we'd had honest, ID required, you-have-to-trouble-to-register voting, America would look a lot different today. It wouldn't be perfect, but it would at least be more prosperous and moral. The Jedi Mind Trick has us thinking we come from a nation where most of our compatriots are losers, children, idiots, leeches.

The Jedi Mind Trick is making a small representative slice of America appear to BE America, when in fact the only thing the left has more of than us, are MSM talking heads. We outnumber them in every other way.

Droids, schmoids.

This is nothing new. Everything in politics in this country can be explained by one simple statement: The Democrats are the Evil Party and the Republicans are theStupid Party.
