If you're playing basketball and the guy elbows you under the net, it's an accident.
The first time.
After that, you've got to figure he's doing it on purpose.
That's how life is. Once is a fluke, twice is a pattern. When somebody does something over and over, it's pretty hard to believe that it's not on purpose.
It's pretty hard to believe that he's not gunning for you.
Like the federal government.
At this stage, it's pretty hard to believe that its incompetence isn't on purpose. It's pretty hard to avoid the conclusion that somebody has decided to put the ship on the rocks.
I don't believe in conspiracies.
But I do believe in selfishness, egomania, venality, avarice, covetousness and stupidity. In short, I do believe in evil. And I do believe that evil has destroyed more governments than one, annihilated more civilizations than one.
And I'm suspicious.
I'm suspicious of an uninterrupted string of policies and laws which do nothing but chain and bankrupt the American people and the American economy. Our freedom, our culture, our territory, our prosperity and our future are all in legitimate peril and in each instance it is the direct consequence of government policies.
The politicians claim that the government will solve our problems, but in actuality it has created them. Its power has been perverted and misdirected in such a fashion as to hemorrhage our stability and vitality.
It is an ongoing act of national suicide, committed by the government and borne by the people. The lust for power is so great among the pygmies who have appointed themselves our leaders that they would gladly destroy the nation if they could secure for themselves the opportunity to preside over its ruins.
Jackals gnaw the bones of gazelles, but first they have to kill them.
Or, as the Bible says, When the wicked rule, the people mourn.
The government chose to ignore our border and immigration laws. Historic and potentially incurable damage has been done as a result.
The government chose to accumulate incomprehensible debt. We will live with the threat of bankruptcy for at least a generation as a result.
The government has prevented the development of domestic energy resources, from coal to nuclear to gas to oil. That has enriched our enemies, enfeebled our economy, endangered our security and encumbered our prosperity.
The government has weakened our population with massive socialist programs, raiding the family budgets of those who pay for them and destroying the family responsibility of those who receive them.
The government has strangled our farm production, with the intoxication of subsidy and the lunacy of food-based fuel. This will, in the first instance, make people go broke. It will, in the second instance, make people go hungry.
The government has destroyed the benefit of education, hobbling what were once the world's best schools in favor of creating an activist- and union-driven industry of indoctrination. Students learn neither their culture nor their livelihood and are taught nothing of citizenship except resentment, rebellion and arrogant entitlement.
The government has transformed free trade into a rape of our economy, subsidizing massive trade deficits and the consequent collapse of our currency. The result is a destruction of our industry essential to both prosperity and security and a situation in which foreigners with solid currencies are gobbling up American businesses and American land, making us sharecroppers and tenants in our own country.
The government has conducted two wars in such a fashion as to cripple our armies, empty our treasury, destroy our reputation and bleed a generation. Our demonstrated weakness has bolstered rivals and invited insolence.
The government has given us Medicare and Medicaid and predatory liability laws and free medical care for illegal aliens and the horrible butchery they have together forced on our medical system. In less than a generation we have gutterized what many remember as the best medical system in the world.
The government is kneeling before the altar of man-made global warming, forcing this cult of de-industrialization upon our lifestyles and our family budgets.
Our freedom is diminished, our currency is devalued, our fuel is expensive, our food is scarce, our borders are meaningless, our security is weak, our future is mortgaged, our prospects are bleak.
And the government did it all.
Each and every one of these woes is the direct and unavoidable consequence of governmental policies advocated and enacted by one or both of the two major political parties.
We are on our knees, our strength is gone, and the government did it.
And it's beginning to be hard to believe that this much incompetence is an accident.
When somebody does something over and over, it's pretty hard to believe it's not on purpose.
The Curse of Obamanation continues to be Moving Forward with NO resistance from our sorry Congressional RINOs.
Bob nailed it.
It has always been this way. Our Founding Fathers took the bold step of creating a system where the Rulers were the Ruled, thereby breaking the entire game and creating a free society.
But those who wish to rule are not easily dealt with, and they have made a comeback. Politicians today mean to rule over us. They are ignoring the Constitution and have built a system in which We The People are peasants who work the land and pay the taxes, while the Rulers live in the big house up on the hill.
As the Founding Fathers knew, there is but one solution.
Okay, small business caller from St. Louis, Jim was his name. Without realizing it, what Jim was advocating was a leftist strategy to destroy the country and it's called Cloward-Piven, and these are people, Saul Alinsky bought into them, they go way, way back. They predate Alinsky, and Obama is a big believer.
Like the federal government. At this stage, it's pretty hard to believe that its incompetence isn't on purpose. It's pretty hard to avoid the conclusion that somebody has decided to put the ship on the rocks.
I was taught that one time can be passed off as an accident.
And two times can be passed off as a coincidence.
But three times is enemy action.
That’s gold, Baby!
Good read and well said, my question is, what in God’s name are we going to do about it?
I have always liked the expression:
if you were really trying to ruin the country on purpose, what would you do differently than what they are already doing?
ObaMao taught Alinsky tactics to ACORN in Chit-cago...
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
I'm gonna whine and write things on FreeRepublic.
That'll show 'em!!!
We live in interesting times.
All it will take is a leader to set this thing off. We are good to go.
