Obama's not in charge. He gets it. Maybe if we took notice that he's not in charge, we'd ask, "Well then, who is in charge?"

The banks.

"What? The banks? How did they get to be in charge?"

Material Wealth - 48% of world's diamonds, 45% of world's platinum, 25% of world's gold, 10% of iron ores, 12% of copper reserves (c. '96)

Club of The Isles (umbrellas) - Anglo American-DeBeers, Rio Tinto, HSBC, Barclay's BP, Royal Shell, KAS, KMS, Crown Agents, Executive Outcomes Inc, Defense Systems Ltd, Sandline Intl., (inc. 6 Leading Grain Cos.) Cargill, Continental, Louis Dreyfus, Bunge and Born, André, and Archer Daniels Midland/Töpfer.

Or maybe it is entirely wittingly, after having lost the House in 2010, the POR lost one leg of its stool.  Stool being an operative word for what they were up to.   Now they are destroying as best they can under the circumstances, trying to keep Senate.   You see the Senate approves Supreme Court justices, and they aren't dying out or quitting fast enough for Mr Death, the Grim Reaper of the Republic.   They are gleeful at the prospects for gutting the supreme law of the land that way, rather than via piecemeal destruction of rule of law down in the details of execution, (non)enforcement, prosecutorial restraint/zeal, bureaucratic rulemaking, and of course the relentless large scale dissolution of the culture, families, and individual capacity for independence from them.

Only thing missing in that is she will be jailed if she speaks out against the husband. No habeus corpus for you. Good analogy though. Anyone who idolizes Lincoln is either a tyrant/tyrant sympathizer or a moron who is ignorant of history. We can thank US public schools for that one.

Watching CSpan a few minutes ago...congressional hearing on ISIL etc and the status of Iraqi ground forces.  Statements made indicated that during the "surge" we had upwards of 150,000 US troops on the ground, with "between 6 and 8 thousand" opposing Al-Qaeda etc.

Now, with ISIL estimated at about 15,000, the Iraqi ground forces have lost about 140,000  who have simply walked away, and the country seems essentially theirs for the taking.  Say what you want about them , this shows how difficult it is to control a land mass without popular support, and what a small but determined band of renegades can accomplish.

I have stated here multiple times that "the mighty US Military couldn't control an area the size of Texas, there is no way they can control the entire US".  The numbers above indicate that my statement is and has been correct, and that "they" know it.

Given the depth and strength of popular anti-government sentiment in this country, I can safely say that this country is ripe, riper than it's been since 1775.

ISN'T THIS OBVIOUS?

As has just about every other country complicit in shooting down civilian airliners. Its always an "accident" and when has there ever been anyone in government held accountable.

Admittedly I recall little of the event, but if I recall correctly, Reagan was pretty victorious over the USSR, especially compared to more modern engagements. And he didn't have to bomb or shoot anyone to do it, even though he was the cowboy that was going to destroy the world in nuclear war.

- In an 1858 letter, Lincoln said, “I have declared a thousand times, and now repeat that, in my opinion neither the General Government, nor any other power outside of the slave states, can constitutionally or rightfully interfere with slaves or slavery where it already exists.”

- In a Springfield, Ill., speech, he explained, “My declarations upon this subject of negro slavery may be misrepresented, but can not be misunderstood. I have said that I do not understand the Declaration (of Independence) to mean that all men were created equal in all respects.”

- Debating with Sen. Stephen Douglas, Lincoln said, “I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of … making voters or jurors of Negroes nor of qualifying them to hold office nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races, which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality.”

Everyone was a racist then, as they always have been and are still today. Its a matter of degree and relativity to the majority view. Obama was against gay marriage until what, yesterday? Now, if you are against gay marriage you are a neanderthal homophobe hater.

I think most of us treasure the concept of freedom, but many have difficulty drawing the line where their freedoms come at the cost of another's. If there is any freedom for which we should all be willing to fight, it should be the ability to express our beliefs without oppression or harm. Political correctness threatens this freedom as it seeks to silence opinions not conforming to some preconceived notion. Why is it so threatening for some to hear absolutely idiotic ideas, without the need to silence them, and further, punish them? There is no freedom in that, only tyranny.

I want to feel free to be a dumb ass, and you should be free to mock me.
