Bloviating Zeppelin: A Dulling Sheen

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

A Dulling Sheen


The gloss already appears to be slightly dulling on the Shiny New Change Toy.

The Left is already carping about the recent official cabinet (and other) appointments made by the Obama Administration. As I've said, these persons are clearly insufficiently left for the Left.

Z, of the wondrous blog geeeeeZ, posted a new cautionary tale about the former German Democratic Republic (the socialist/communist West Germany). Please read Z's story.

I responded with these comments:

People: Z writes a CAUTIONARY TALE about something the likes of which most people couldn't care less: HISTORY. If there is something western nations -- hell, most all nations -- fail to take into account is HISTORY. Theirs and the history of others. The GDR and those living within that one-time barbed-wire and walled off boundary KNOW what it was like to live UNDER a socialist environment.

Limited government, prosperity, capitalism and freedom -- we'll have to ensure falling trade, massive tax increases, suppressed freedoms and, likely, another terrorist catastrophe before we see THOSE subjects back again.

One thing we may have on our side is this: it took a Carter for us to acquire a Reagan.

We've not yet hit bottom. In my opinion, that much is clear. But the wave is growing, ladies and gentlemen; the wave and the response to the First Act of "change" is brewing.

Prepare, folks, for a coming Very Bumpy Ride.

But we'll simply have to gut it out because -- can you sense it? Smell it in the air, even?

The pendulum is already, in my opinion, preparing to swing "back" from its current "forth."

I agree. While there has been a worldwide shift to the left of late, a qausi period of recalibration, there is, ever so slowly, almost cloaked in invisibility, a change in the air. The pendulum is positioning itself in our favor...

I agree with you my friend. Time is moving backwards as we move forward and it is for the worse. God help us!

It's amazing what happens when you actually KNOW the issues. Once Obama became aware of the REAL problems he faces, the same ones BUSH faced, he is starting to be more RIGHT minded.

All the campaign promises got tossed out the window when "Fantasyland" became "Holy Shit, that's what this is about"
