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.

America Is Adrift. . .


. . .in a sea of enemy submarines.

I wake up each morning with this first thought: what more can Mr Obama or the Demorats do to this country -- to either remove our freedoms, assume further illicit control of our lives, or spend more money.

And each day brings another abrogation.

I woke up today to this:

The Obama administration is considering asking Congress to give the Treasury secretary unprecedented powers to initiate the seizure of non-bank financial companies, such as large insurers, investment firms and hedge funds, whose collapse would damage the broader economy, according to an administration document.

The government at present has the authority to seize only banks.

This government wants to run your banks. It wants to run the Big 3 automakers. It now wants to run most investment firms. It wants to run your healthcare. It wants to control your children, control their education, their thoughts, their philosophies. It wants to ensure they're dependent upon the government now and in the future.

The government wants to control your home. It wants to control your thermostat, your lights. It wants you to be cold in winter and hot in summer. It wants to control how you shop. It wants to decide what you drive, when you drive, if you drive.

It wants you to cram you into tight spaces.

It wants you only to move about by way of mass transportation. It wants you to abandon the suburbs and your 2,500-square-foot, two-story home with yard, fence, driveway, three-car garage. It wants to shove you into high rise buildings in concentrated population centers. It wants you to be unable to access open spaces with anything motorized. It wants to remove you from open spaces, period. It wants you to see only photographs and videos of nature.

It wants to monitor you. It wants to monitor your computer at work, at home. It wants to monitor you at intersections, on freeways, in businesses. It wants to monitor your car. It wants to tax your mileage, determine where you drive, how you drive. Again, if you drive.

Then, further, it wants to release ultimate sovereignty to a world body, a world court, a world monetary system.

No borders, no perimeters, no countries.

America is adrift.

Can we save her?

Can we save her? I dunno, BZ... but I sure do hope so!

He's going on tv again tonight! I'm sure he'll have his trusty teleprompter, since he can't speak without it.

We're under attack from our own government. We didn't have enough to concern ourselves with because of the illegal aliens, drug cartels, insane radical Muslims, brainwashing of our children, but now we have our own government turning against us. Can it get any worse? Yes, unless the people wake up from their trance it sure can get worse.

To say we live in scary times is a gross understatement!

The United States is much bigger than George W. Bush or Obama.

Obama is not the USA and the USA is not Obama. The USA will be here long after Bush and Obama are long gone.

It may be different but it ain't going anywhere.

America is it's people and it's people will never allow this great country to go away.

The only thing I see going away, in fact it's pretty much gone is the Conservative Party and they only have themselves to blame.

It's time to move on.

Ranando: as a Fornicalia businessman, what do you think about the increased CA income tax, state tax, VLF increase? And the coming federal taxes? Wouldn't you really rather keep that money in your pocket or is your company so national that it doesn't claim Fornicalia as its home office?

BZ,

No, I don't like paying taxes and Yes, California is the company headquarters, it is my headquarters and I love this state.

I'm not happy with our situation but I'm not going to fix it by talking about Obama 24/7.

You don't like it, great, what is the conservative plan to fix it?

Show the American people a better way. Is there a conservative plan to change it, No.

Obama, Obama, Obama, I've said this before and I'll say it again. Stop bashing Obama and tell the American people why they should vote Conservative.

Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or Michelle Malkin didn't win ONE Liberal over to the Conservative side. In fact they drove Conservatives to vote Liberal. They are old and out of date but people keep listening to them, why?

What is the conservative plan to take back the house and Senate?

You want to change this country? What is the plan? Why should Americans vote Conservative?

Talking and bashing Obama is not a plan. I hate to break this to anyone but Obama is in office for at least 4 years, that's it.

Now, I'm going to have another drink.

BZ,
What is required in this situation is what is happening. The people must be awakened to what is going on or the malpractice of the media will keep us in the dark. The people now are beginning to be shaken from their lethargy and they are seeing a man who not capable of performing as POTUS.

Now the action phase begins. Citizens will take action to cause change. Conservatives will present their plan after they stop Obama's. His is the plan in play. First you need to stop the plan that is put forth and it is falling apart already with pieces being ripped out already. BO is so concerned he on a concert tour.

You know BZ, I have actually sen a person that voted for this feller to say he is now sorry & wishes he could retract his vote. That he was not in a very good state of mind when he voted. Obviously this is redundent, but at least some eyes are being opened. I pray enough will before it is too late. Thanks again for a great post.

Right, we need the Obama administration to take over the banking industry. It's the next little step in his move to convert our nation to total Socialism.

And to think he learned it all at the feet of his mentor, Bill Ayers.

Bill should be very proud. Perhaps President Obama will thank him with an Ambassadorship somewhere.

When Jack Cashill spoke at our Republican meeting the other week he talked about praying the serenity prayer during this difficult time for our country:

"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference."

I am just thank-ful God is in control and I remind myself of that during this time of America going adrift.

The main thing we can do right now is make a difference in our corner of the world. One of the things is by joining a Tea Party in your area on April 15th. We are having one in the KC area and I'm going to be one of the speakers. We have to make a difference where we can.

Dee:
Great suggetion about the Tea Parties. Ranado this is part of the grass roots movement to supply an alternative to what we are living in now.

To a degree, I think there is a lot of Obama bashing without equally Bashing the Bush policies that set the stage for his socialism.

What is happening in the economy is an egregious sin and is tantamount to taxation without representation, ie why we had the revolution to start this country in the first place!

Hope is not a strategy.

Our first lesson is to look after ourselves: the revolution did not start on Bunker Hill, but with taxes and the Crown trying to take arms from the people and being resisted. We look to our personal liberty first, last and always, for if you cannot preserve that the Nation will be lost.

Once that is done our lesson is clear: join with your fellow countrymen who feel likewise and oppose tyranny, fight it and there will be a good chance you will die in the fightinig. But you have seen to the security of your family, so you have not died in vain, but for them to live lives that now see the cost of liberty. When you see your fellow free countrymen go down, you know the cost of liberty to be high and while you mourn the dead you harden your heart against tyrants, despots and dictators of all stripes: they are your enemy as well as those that support them.

We have resisted for decades becoming an Empire, and that has been one of the hardest fights that we have had on the civil side for decades. Now we see the call for that which is only made to punish to do 'good' by inflicting pain to extract your liberty from you. This government no longer represents society, it is minoritarian getting a half of a half and now that puts us in deadly jeopardy because our fellow Americans in the plurality have given up on the system. That is the winner this last election: those who did not vote have gotten the failure they crave. I cannot speak on the wisdom good or ill of that election, save that the will of society to make government fail has now found its voice with those in power. The attacks on society since the start of Progressivism has yielded nihilism, dissention, division and corroded trust in our fellow Americans. Trust does not come from on high, but person to person to person.

The top must be stopped for the bottom to rebuild.

If our fellow Americans have non-voted for failure, then so be it.

Now we must look after ourselves to look after our Nation as it was and can be in our hearts: the commitment to build anew is ever there as we are all created equal and seek to have the freest lives with the greatest liberty possible.

And to those who trust government ahead of their fellow countrymen: To Hell With Them.

They are the enemy.

Time grows very short to convince them to step back.

We were built on reason, all declaimed that even those with no religion at all at the Founding. Do not follow the pied piper of destruction believing it is any other thing. Those things that came before led us to Nation: Black Book of the Admiralty, The Laws of War and the Laws of Peace, The Treaty of Westphalia, The Law of Nations, Blackstone's Commentaries on the Common Law of England. These were written by demvout men, yet they are not religious tracts as they had seen the destruction blind following of religion and foreswore that - and we see it happening to this day. The cure for that was reason, liberty, freedom and a republic. Our Founders trusted us to know these things.

I hear their call to me across the centuries, their trust placed in me and abide by their wishes.

Do you?

Last night, BHO said in the press conference that he didn't favor a one-world currency. Problem is, I don't believe him.

Before the election, many of us sounded the warnings. Sometimes we sounded paranoid.

But we now see that BHO, along with this Congress, is turning out to be everything we warned about -- or nearly everything.

As Gayle said, We're under attack from our own government.

Dark days, indeed.

Can we save America? Not until we can "convert" a passel of Obama supporters. And that's a tough one as they seem hypnotized by him.

If we don't make a conservative showing for the 2010 election, America will no longer be the kind of country she was supposed to be. I see 2010 as our last chance.

"Obama, Obama, Obama, I've said this before and I'll say it again. Stop bashing Obama and tell the American people why they should vote Conservative."

Actually, that's the plan that SHOULD be instituted. Can't say as I disagree with that in the slightest bit. The GOP have been conspicuously silent -- but the MSM, with the deathgrip they have on information, aren't exactly in league with Conservatism and excited to get the message out.

Obama also wants the government to "revitalize" our newspapers - just when I thought they would be bankrupt and be gone.

Maggie: YES!!

EXCELLENT POINT!

Did you all read THIS:

"WASHINGTON -- Struggling newspapers should be allowed to operate as nonprofits similar to public broadcasting stations, Sen. Benjamin Cardin, D-Md., proposed Tuesday.

Cardin introduced a bill that would allow newspapers to choose tax-exempt status. They would no longer be able to make political endorsements, but could report on all issues including political campaigns.

Advertising and subscription revenue would be tax-exempt, and contributions to support coverage could be tax deductible."

And ONCE NEWSPAPERS are given this status, to WHOM do you think their ALLEGIANCES will FURTHER LIE?

Take a wild damned guess.

BZ,
True. I also agree with Dee's comment. I must add for Ranando that conservatism DID WORK because it was what our country was founded on and our country is the greatest country on the face of this earth. Capitalism works. It has it's flaws, but overall it works and that is one of the reasons we are such a great nation.

You need to pick up Mark Levin's new book if you want a lesson on history and want to learn what made America the best country in the world.

The republican party SHOULD be cleaning house and Conservatism needs to be the norm, not the exception. That is what is happening and we have to take our party back or we will lose this country.

One way is to do Tea parties as Dee suggested and while doing them promote great TRULY CONSERVATIVE candidates. We don't need any more Arnolds or McCains leading our party.

You people crease me up. Fact - George Bush screwed your economy. Fact George Bush's administration stared the spending bailing out banks and insurance companies. How did it suddenly become Obama's recession? Right wing Republicans sank your economy not so called leftie socialists. You also praise Daniel Hannan - well have him! Fact - if Gordon Brown hadn't bailed out the banks good Christian, law abiding, tax paying British pensioners like my mother and father would be in abject poverty by now. To quote my Conservative voting, right wing mother - 'how on earth can these stupid people blame Obamam for the crdit crunch he wasn't even president, they must be barking nuts'. I personally have never heard so much ill informed garbage in my life!!
A right thinking Brit.
