(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.

To Every US Citizen: The Worst Is Yet To Come


And because governments realize this, there will be a renewed push to disarm the average world citizen and, by extension, this push will occur here in the United States as well.

From Larry Bell at Forbes.com:

It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

This is occurring for two very important reasons, reasons that you need to realize exist right now, this very moment:

1. The arrogance of government on all levels in every nation is exploding; only the government knows what is best for its citizens who -- more and more -- are becoming simple Serfs;
2.
The fear of government -- realization and the concomitant fear that citizens who are armed may be pushed to the point where they not only awaken to the threat governments place and have placed on their lives with onerous taxes, regulations and profligate spending -- and the present ability of mere "citizens" to enact their own form of "push-back."

Here in the United States, people are finally beginning to realize that what Mr Obama has been doing to allegedly "combat" our fiscal predicament isn't working and, instead, is making things worse. There is no "rebound" in the economy, in the jobs market, in the housing market, in the overall economy. These events are already occurring:

Which brings me to: what is that oft-quoted "definition of insanity"? -- that is: "doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results"?

Mr Obama and his minions do this precisely, expecting that miracles shall issue forth. And there are no miracles. Precisely the opposite. Printing money is a Death Knell. Spending money that one does not possess is a Death Knell. It beggars stupidity on an incomprehensible level:

When you are in personal or familial debt, is the answer to spend more money you don't possess?

Because the answer is so plainly obvious, I won't provide it. That said, what makes anyone think a nation, a series of nations, a planet of governments -- is somehow exempt from this common sense stricture?

Therefore, the only final equation can be catastrophe. Catastrophe on a state and national level, and very likely on a global level as well.

When those -- in America -- come to realize just how ill-managed, arrogant, incompetent, exclusive, elitist, their governments and highly-paid executives are, there will be a clear pushback. It is this pushback or revolt that those in government are attempting to ameliorate or eliminate entirely. Because they realize it means their own very highly once-separated throats.

Mr Bell continues to write:
While the terms have yet to be made public, if passed by the U.N. and ratified by our Senate, it will almost certainly force the U.S. to:
  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.
Have no doubt that this plan is very real, with strong Obama administration support. In January 2010 the U.S. joined 152 other countries in endorsing a U.N. Arms Treaty Resolution that will establish a 2012 conference to draft a blueprint for enactment. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has pledged to push for Senate ratification.

Former U.N. ambassador John Bolton has cautioned gun owners to take this initiative seriously, stating that the U.N. “is trying to act as though this is really just a treaty about international arms trade between nation states, but there is no doubt that the real agenda here is domestic firearms control.”

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama was an aggressive advocate for expanding gun control laws, and even voted against legislation giving gun owners an affirmative defense when they use firearms to defend themselves and their families against home invaders and burglars. He also served on a 10-member board of directors of the radically activist anti-gun Joyce Foundation in Chicago during a period between 1998-2001when it contributed $18,326,183 in grants to anti-Second Amendment organizations.

Further, a very salient and little-published but amazing point:
There are many like me, and fewer of them would be alive today were it not for exercise of their gun rights. In fact law-abiding citizens in America used guns in self-defense 2.5 million times during 1993 (about 6,850 times per day), and actually shot and killed 2 1/2 times as many criminals as police did (1,527 to 606). Those civilian self-defense shootings resulted in less than 1/5th as many incidents as police where an innocent person was mistakenly identified as a criminal (2% versus 11%).

Mr Bell sums up perfectly:
Now, more than ever, it’s imperative to stick by our guns in demanding that all Constitutional rights be preserved. If not, we will surely lose both.

There it is.

By some accounts, unemployment is higher now than the Great Depression. During that time, government employees were counted among the unemployed (why I don't know). Teenage unemployment is now around 25%.

During the Depression, our currency was fairly sound.

Despots, and wannabe despots, must be having an "Oh, s#%t" moment, watching the so called Arab Spring unfolding. Bitch, isn't it, when angry citizens get their hands on some firepower.

At a personal level, I will survive just fine. My concern is the world my children, and especially my grandchildren, will live in.

Swell, bd. So weigh in on YOUR take on the elevated Mr Obama's design for Excellent Exortations:

What's the plan?

Lay it out!

I'm a quadriplegic and I have a gun... True that I'd probably shoot myself trying to use it, but in the words of Charlton Heston, "you can have my gun when you pry it out of cold dead fingers"...

BZ, one only has to read and connect the dots to see that there's a good chance this is all absolutely true, of course.
I wish I could be naive and think it's not happening here but it's the perfect storm.
I had to laugh when I heard Obama was going to speak about how 1/3 of American businesses will have to drop healthcare insurance for their employees...as if that's not exactly his plan?
TOo much smoke for no fire...
I never ever EVER thought anything like this could happen in America.....
Let's hope we're all WRONG.

bd, of course, all is well, is it not? You're making more money, you're happier than ever, there's nothing wrong with the nation or its direction, all we need to do is keep spending federal dollars!

PERFECT!

One question, however: on your 2010 tax return, did you write an additional check to the federal government and your state government so that those less fortunate than you can benefit from your monetary largesse?

If not: shame on you. YOU, ma'am, need to realize that, likely, at least one or two persons DIED because YOU didn't ship additional funds to the federal government.

I don't know how you sleep at night, you miser.

Wow BZ, nice accusations. As if they mean anything to your silly topic. You off your meds today or channeling Glenn Becks lunacy? I have some pamprin if you need it.

Perhaps, bd, I might suggest some adult Depends for YOU, insofar as I spent the bulk of my career doing babysitting and hand-holding for adults who were on the dole, who had no idea how to conduct their lives, and then called me to somehow "solve" the problems they'd gotten themselves into for, literally, decades.

I've made no accusations with regard to you. I've merely "outed" you, much to your chagrin. And my readers know you now damned near as well as me.

Please kick over to Z's blog, where she'll humour you.

I have to admit, however, that you're most-excellently concealing your pants-shitting fear of logic, proportion, common sense, rationality and facts.

I still love you, baby! C'mon over here, let me chuck you under your chin!

Good baby! Good baby! Let me dab the drool off your chin. . .

Toaster: but the cool thing is that I control her. She thinks she's making a Stand for her Peeps, but I shunt the bulk of her bullshit aside and allow the comments that I decide. Most of her comments submitted are specious, F -and S-filled, so I toss those aside.

She doesn't have two brain cells in her head but, occasionally, I let her stand because she makes such a wonderful submission for her kind; silly and obvious.

And I will ALWAYS let stupidity stand by itself.

Very accurate post BZ. I will echo what TF said. Blue helmets=Great targets.

What I question is this and I posted as much at my site:

Public unions. Especially in places like Wis. Are heavily filled with gun owners. HOW can they vote DEMOCRAT? HOW can they give up their freedom because "Democrats take care of them"... Democrats have USED them, are USING them, LYING to them, Demonizing the right with half truths or outright lies and THESE GUN OWNERS CONTINUE TO VOTE TO REMOVE THEIR FREEDOMS. I don't get it. At some point they will have to choose.

Right now, any candidate for POTUS,SENATE or REP. Needs to have their 2nd amendment views clearly stated, verified and proven. We can't do much about the idiots in there now. BUT WE CAN CLEAR OUT THE SEWER.

IF you vote DEMOCRAT YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. IF YOU VOTE RINO, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. FIX IT, OR BE PREPARED TO FIGHT.

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you’re not a racist, you’ll have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot.
