Bloviating Zeppelin: Reflections On A Monday

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.

Reflections On A Monday


I'm down in the Sacramento Valley as I write this post, at my wife's house in Ghetto Centrale. Today is to be the warmest day of the week, perhaps into the 80s. It's certainly filled with blue skies outside as contrasted to the miraculous and wondrous thunderstorm I encountered up at my cabin Tuesday night of last week.


The night skies were, then, split with the millisecond forks of white-hot lightning, illuminating the living room entirely. The thunder would gap for seconds then, minutes later, the bed-rattling booms seemed as directly over my cabin. As opposed to some thunderstorms this one lasted for a good hour or more. I love thunderstorms; the rain cascaded off my roof in sheets onto the deck.

There's another thunderstorm coming just 22 days from now.

One that will affect the entire nation and not just my, literally, little neck of the woods.

There are rumors, terrible rumors floating about in DC that the national media, "in the tank" for Leftists and Demorats -- their own kind, you see -- refuse to cover, editorialize upon or even speak about covertly outside of their own newsrooms. And that is:

A great deal of the Demorats in DC are concerned that Mr Obama simply isn't listening to them. He refuses to see that his philosophy is slaughtering the chances of any hope of a Demorat win in these remaining 22 days. They are concerned that he is incapable of compromise, incapable of learning from history and incapable of true political ingenuity or brilliance.

In essence: himself incapable of change.

People speak and write of the political brilliance of Obama. Comparatively speaking, Mr Obama is but a mere petulant child in contrast with William Jefferson Clinton, who was wise enough to know when to re-craft himself and his policies in such a way that he is still held as a Demorat ideal.

Mr Obama may be brilliant but he is an arrogant ideologue and a dunce. After all of his higher education, what has he actually learned? I submit: very little. He still does not see, purposely, reality.

Therefore, I conclude, he is quite incapable of changing his own path of political destruction or the path of destruction on which he has placed this nation.

Investors Business Daily says that, at our current rate, the US won't recover its lost jobs until the year 2020. Another complete decade of misery and stagnation.

The jobless rate has been at or above 9.5 percent for a year and two months, the longest stretch since the Great Depression.

More senior staff including defence secretary Robert Gates, and senior advisor David Axelrod, leave their ObamaJobs at the White House.

An excellent summation of Mr Obama here.

November, here we come.

I miss good ol fashioned thunderstorms. I used to live in a house with a tin roof back in N.C. The sound the rain made when it hit the tin was like soft music when you went to bed...

The November thunder storm better be one step from an earthquake. IF are to have a chance to save ourselves. IF not, more of the same, and an unemployment rate closer to 12% than 10%.

Liberal/Progressives like that debbie Waxlip-shitz are the ones blinded by ideology. They keep the same ol message of "The republicans did it" NO THEY DIDN'T, We were doing just fine (Economy wise) until 2007, what happened in 2007? Oh yeah Demonrats took over congress...

It will be interesting. In my district, the Denver Post endorsed the GOP challenger over the DEM incumbent.

There will be a lot of new faces in the House and Senate. We can only hope they will understand and remember why the voters sent them to replace the incumbents. I'm not holding my breath.

Robert, I too have a metal roof but mostly to divert the snow from my roof. And you're correct on these two points:

1. Things went downhill, under BUSH, when the Demorats controlled the houses and

2. Clinton re-invented himself when the GOP held the houses and STILL succeeded when he chose another tack.

WSF: the Denver POST?? Isn't that a rather Left-leaning organization if I am not mitsaken?

And, heavy sigh, I'm not breath-holding either.

The Obama staff will take the look of RATS and a SINKING SHIP soon after January...

Unless...unless I say, the Kenyan blunder-boy begins to make those evil executive orders I have warned about and further usurps the powers and soul of this nation...

In that case, the RATS may stay and continue to feed on the carcass of this nation...

Should that event happen, I submit this, what do we do in that event?

Since the Rocky Mountain News folded, Denver is a one newspaper town. Looks like the Post is trying the middle of the road.

The lame duck session is going to be very dangerous if November turns out the way we hope.

IF we win in Nov. And Obama governs as he has been, we will have little option. Obama will seal his fate in 2012 if he "executives orders" his way through the next 2 years. Unfortunately, he'll make the GOP field weaker by doing that. At the point he rules by executive order, any GOP candidate will beat him in 2012, good for the GOP not good for the nation.

IF he moves to the center like Clinton did, and he gets his head out of his ass, then perhaps the GOP field will have to be MUCH stronger to beat him in 2012.

IF nothing changes in Nov. Civil war could happen here... But it's going to take an unemployment rate of 14% or higher, and a terrorist attack on our soil to be the spark I fear.

TF: he's already Czar'ed himself through all the appointments he wishes in order to expressly AVOID having to vet those persons through official channels and chance refusal. So, yes, I'd wager it wouldn't be impossible for him to decide he'd EO his way through the rest of his ONE term.

Robert: again I'd wager your predictions will be correct: the gloves will absoLUTEly come off if November goes south for the Dems. They'll pull ALL the stops out of the Nasty Playbook. But if that happens I'm not much convinced the American public will be pleased with that.

Tank this economy further and you'll see some very nasty public reactions. It won't be pretty for anyone.

Another decade of misery and stagnation will take me nearly to age 70 -- if I last that long, that is.

So, there goes my dream of a nice retirement, a retirement that was based on savings that yield very little interest now and the sale of my home. My home, of course, is unmarketable now even as the real-estate taxes soar higher and higher.

As for BHO's inability to change, well, anyone with Narcissistic Personality Disorder is, by definition, incapable of flexibility and incapable of empathy toward others.

Thanks, Dems! You shit weasels.

I say:
He's educated WAY beyond his intelligence level.

I agree with Bushwack on this one, if the GOP is wimped into a win, then a civil war will be sparked by continued D'ohbama policies. Better keep it dry, fellahs. There's a storm coming, and it's gonna be a big one.

Ah yes, thunderstorms on a tin roof, that brings back memories of being a kid in Louisiana :-)
