Be Prepared

If Donald Trump is elected President, and he could easily pull it off because the Clinton campaign is in total disarray and Johnson’s campaign just doesn’t have the steam, there will be a revolution in the streets of the United States that will make the February and October Russian Revolutions of 1917/1918 look like popping into a chalk pavement picture in Mary Poppins.

Don’t think so?  Look at what Anonymous has been able to pull off in recent years.  One would hope the american people would take to the streets prior to the damage being done, but that’s not going to happen in any significant numbers.

The people voting for Trump believe that America should be the international schoolyard bully.  That America has the right to go into any country, pillage their resources to maintain a slothful way of life and murder a few thousand people along the way – including our own sons and daughters.

I am certain there are a significant number of people voting for Trump ONLY because of Hillary (and Bill) Clinton’s shenanigans going all the way back to Whitewater.  I’m not pushing Hillary, god knows, but that will be a large block of people.

The people voting for Trump believe America can be made great again – what that really means is that they believe America can have the clock turned back to early 20th century white male dominance in all matters, and that women and minorities should be “put back into their place” as chattel.

The people voting for Trump have no qualms whatsoever about using nuclear arms.  Anywhere.  Against anyone.  Including the US or any allies (if we have any left after November).

Neither candidate carries anything close to the moral compass needed to be the head of state.

It is true that the moral consciousness of the world must recognize the importance of removing injustices and well-founded grievances; but at the same time it must be aroused to the cardinal necessity of honoring sanctity of treaties, of respecting the rights and liberties of others, and of putting an end to acts of international aggression. – FDR

FDR’s words speak to the need of ending terrorism, but they also speak to ANY nation who plays the aggressor. Our glass houses will not withstand much scrutiny.

Wisdom, compassion, and courage are the three universally recognized moral qualities of men. – Confucius 

Haven’t seen much of any of those qualities in our candidates.

The battle has yet to begin.  The race to November is the preamble.

Quoting from CNN.com –

Millions of poor Americans who don’t pay federal income taxes actually do have jobs. They just earn too little to pay taxes, and in some cases, to escape poverty.

This is very different than the portrayal Mitt Romney offered in videotaped remarks made public this week. The Republican presidential candidate said that 47% of Americans pay no income tax and are dependent on the government. He said he’ll never convince them to take personal responsibility for their lives.

However, nearly two-thirds of the 33 million people living in families below the poverty line have at least one family member working in 2011, according to figures from the Census Bureau.

The number of people working full-time in the lowest income group, those earning less than $20,262 a year, soared 17.3% in 2011. This was by far the largest increase for any income group. The poverty threshold for a family of four was $23,021 last year.

But more than 30% of people who owe no income tax escape the levy because of credit for the working poor and children. Nearly 9 million have income of less than $40,000. The vast majority have their income tax liability erased by the earned income tax credit, which is designed to encourage the poor to hold down jobs.
 

And what is really scary is that so many people believe Romney’s bullshit….

Double Dipping in New Jersey

What you are about to read is true.  It happened to my daughter.

I entered my friendly neighborhood polling place to perform my civic duty this evening.  In NJ, you have to sign a pre-printed registration book that already has a copy of your signature so they know you are you, then you have to sign a numbered ticket stub, half of which is torn off and handed to the voter. The voter takes said stub to the nice volunteer senior citizen standing next to the voting machine.  The voter then exchanges said stub for the right to enter the voting booth.  That’s the normal procedure.

As the registration book is alphabetical, I can see that the Mrs. has already signed in, the boy’s name has “absentee ballot” printed next to it, as it should, and my daughter has yet to sign in and vote.

After pushing all the buttons, zipping up and exiting the booth, I call my daughter to ask if she is voting.  She informs me that she already did, early in the morning.

“But how?” I ask, noting that she didn’t sign in.  Apparently the person manning our district’s table was not entirely clear on the procedure and was just letting people enter the voting booth without signing in.  Ahh, I hear you say, and how did she get by the ticket-taking volunteer stationed next to the machine?  Well, it seems that person was in absentia as well.

The daughter unit returned to the scene of the crime this evening after my phone call. Upon explaining the situation to the man with the registration book he said, quote: “Oh shit.”  My daughter signed all the forms….and was permitted to vote again.

Wonder how many other folks got a double-shot?

And people in Florida are worried about paper ballots…pffff…

Bah! Humbug!

That’s just the way I’ve been feeling today. It must be the heat. It’s 10 degrees warmer in NJ than in Florida…WTF?????? Tomorrow’s high is predicted at 101. Swell. On the upside tomorrow is supposed to be it for this heatwave.

Part of my dysphoric mood comes from ruminating about the light at the end of tunnel…it’s a bullet train headed this way. Does anybody really think either McCain or Obama are going to make ANY difference?? And isn’t it nice how the mainstream media has decided that they are the only two candidates about whom they will supply their dis-information. Screw Bob Barr and Ron Paul…they don’t count I guess. Don’t listen to them! Turn the friggin’ TV off! Fucktards… I didn’t think it was possible to do worse than Bush…I was wrong. Both of these clowns are dangerously useless in their own way. I don’t know if I can hold my breath for another four years.

Don’t think that any of these goofy protests against the oil companies floating around everyone’s email inbox will have any impact on gas or food prices. The fuse has been lit and it’s getting closer. The world is begging the Saudis for more oil and their response is to criticize the current price. I don’t blame them…why should they bust their collective asses to feed our addiction? It’s time to hollow out the mattress, cash in all your retirement savings and stuff the cash. The inflationary spiral is out of control; the idiots and morons in DC have no clue as to what is going on the real world. Trust me…McCain and Obama are no better. They’ve both chalked up scads of special interest favors during their never-ending campaign. There is no reason to expect oil prices to come down unless we (using the collective American we) decide to break our oil addiction and invent new technology…at least in the long run. Right now, however, we have allowed our leaders to put us between a rock and a hard place. US oil production peaked 36 years ago. That’s right. 1972. Why? Because the places we are allowed to look for oil are maxed and the protected lands are…well…protected. You can have protected lands OR low gas prices. You can’t have both. It’s called supply and demand. The foundation of our economy. Turning to a socialist regime is not the answer. Staying the course is not the answer. It’s time to get the greasy government fingers out of as many pies as possible and let innovation and American hard work take over. The gravy train is over. We have to get off our collective asses and get back to work.

I don’t know. I just don’t see anything giving way until everything collapses. I hope not, I really do because the fallout will be ugly.

Catching Wild Pigs

There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Prof noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back, and stretching as if his back hurt.

The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged jn his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a communist government. In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.
He asked, ‘Do you know how to catch wild pigs?’
The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.
The young man said this was no joke.
‘You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in The last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, then you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.
The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America . The government keeps pushing us toward socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare, medicine, drugs, etc, etc, etc. while we continue to lose our freedoms – just a little at a time.
One should always remember: There is no such thing as a free Lunch! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.
So, if you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to send this on to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably delete this email, but God help you when the gate slams shut!
In this “very important” election year, listen closely to what the candidates are promising you – just maybe you will be able to tell who is about to slam the gate on America.
