A Metaphor for Our Times

Currently under construction by the corporation of Reid, Pelosi, Frank and Pork. Your tax dollars at work (and hell, all the dollars they're still printing for it, too!)
Thanks to www.failblog.org for this fine photo. Unfortunately this train carries not only deleriously jubilant Obama-supporters, but everyone else, too...

The Fall of Night

There was so much to say prior to the elections. In the hope that enough people would read, and become educated about what is going on in our country and world, many people said a great many things.

It has been a little more than one week since elections concluded in utter catastrophe. We will of course not know the full extent of the damage which will be done to our country over the coming four years until it has happened. My belief is that the economy will not rebound quickly, and with the nearly omnipotent supervision of democrats throughout the federal government, the suffering will be prolonged.

Expect to lose freedom. Freedom of speech ("Fairness doctrine"), freedom of your puruits of happiness (including "gun control" and "assault weapons ban"); Expect to have less control over your financial choices ("higher taxes, targeted tax breaks") and greatly reduced control over your own medical care.

If you're poor, you can expect to stay that way. You probably voted for democrats, and they'll help keep you in your place, protected like small children from the big, bad wolf.

Republicans will be hailed as evil warmongers who have wrecked the nation and its economy. The solutions proposed will be worse the problems. Then you will be told "it just needs four more years to work".

Expect to pay more for your energy (gasoline, electricity, etc.) as the incoming administration seeks to prevent entrepreneurs from having the economic incentive to build their industries' capacities.
Expect problems overseas to increase, as our enemies got their man for the prez, and they've got a green light in two months or so to kick it up a notch. Which should be easier for them to do once all the "evil Bush" surveillance policies and the resultant secret counter-ops missions are discontinued in favor of "dialogue".

And expect all the rules blown off the table when The Israeli-Iranian conflict finally explodes.

But I'm hopeful that at least all those self-hating liberals will start paying my car payments and rent bills after I've been taxed into poverty. And the medical bills, too. We've got 'em by the bucket-full, so fellow citizens, please pay up so I don't have to!

Ah, Utopia awaits... Until all that nasty bombing in Iran and Israel gets started, anyway. Maybe Utopia Planetia is more appropriately descriptive.

In four years' time, expect the nation's definition of what a truly "hated" president is to come much more clearly into focus. And expect a lot of people who voted for this to learn the true meaning of "buyer's remorse".

If Obama Wins...

You're traveling through another election -- an election not only of spin and rhetoric but of partisan madness. A journey into a dystopian land whose boundaries are delineated by massive socialistic bureacracy. That's a voting booth up ahead! Your next stop: The Obama Zone?!!

Could this be what the election night party will look like? "Let us bow in prayer. No, all of you, on your knees..."

"Pray to me!!"

Okay, maybe a little too much late-night rerun TV for me lately...

Khalid Habib Killed By U.S. Forces

Khalid Habib Killed By U.S. Forces - Planner Of Next al Qaeda Terror Attack

Friday, 31 October 2008

Khalid Habib, the al Qaeda figure believed to be organizing a new terror attack against the United States is dead.

The official says the U.S. now has evidence that Khalid Habib was killed in an unmanned air strike two weeks ago in the South Waziristan region of Pakistan. Until now, there had been no official confirmation of reports of Habib’s death from local militants in the area.

“He was the person responsible for planning and organizing attacks in the Pakistan and overseas, including the U.S.,” the senior official said. “This was a really big deal that has not received much attention.”

Considered the number four leader of al Qaeda, Habib was a long-time associate close to both Osama bin Laden and Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Habib had been reported killed by Pakistani officials several times over the last few years, only to re-emerge at the center of what U.S. official say is the al Qaeda operational command.

McCain grinds ahead

The latest Zogby poll shows McCain +1 over Obama. Completely within the error margin. However, my prediction: if it's polling even, McCain wins. I do not think the folks in the late-deciding political center will break in Obama's favor. I never did, and still don't think that.

It's very interesting to see the variety of polls (and news organizations) saying such dire things about the McCain camp - like it's over already. Clearly, McCain is much more a centrist than Obama (don't laugh - I'm trying to keep a straight face - "Obama" shouldn't be in the same sentence with "centrist"). Who is the middle likely to vote for? Uhhh... McCain?

After Obama's dour and depressing half hour dispair-o-mercial, how many of those folks do you expect he gained? What about how many he turned to McCain? Yeah, I think so, too.

For the first time in a couple weeks, we suddenly are starting to see what looks like the very real possibility of McCain victory. I think this is because the political wind machine is winding down. Biden is hidin' with his mouth duct-taped, and Obama's even tossing press people off his flights now. (would be nice if he'd start doing that in-flight, I'd say.)

My bet, today: Prepare for blood in the streets and burning cars. It's going to be a wild week ahead.

WTF is wrong with you people?

How can people deliberately arrive at a position of support for Obama's campaign?
  • Some people just think socialism is great, pehaps because they're emotionally retarded.
  • Maybe they have an excess of guilt about their own financial success, and feel compelled to have it stripped away by law.
  • The black community is apparently predisposed genetically to vote democrat, except in sporadic cases that can be attributed to DNA mutations caused by cosmic rays.
  • Some people are just guilt-ridden and need to vote for the minority candidate to "break out of the mold".
  • Many of these people are still living with their parents, and want the government to take over after they (the parents) leave the picture.
I've had plenty of my own crises, and still do today. I don't blame any of them on the Bush administration. If anything, the problems I have had (or continue to have) are by my own poor choices. Heck, I can't think of anything in my life to blame Clinton for, except the embarassment he caused us all. Well wait, maybe he signed Feinstein's stupid assault-weapon ban, or was that Bush the elder?

Whatever the reason for their political dysfunction, this is now my official anthem for all of those child-like, glassy-eyed, useful idiots we see at those well-publicized rallies. Let the screams in your heads be the last thing you hear:

What is the LA Times hiding?

This Khalidi videotape with a side-serving of Ayers must be uncomfortable for the Obama camp, no? Could the Times raise any more suspicion about the content than they already have by refusing to release it? Are you getting the feeling that the news you're getting is being carefully filtered and purified before its distribution?

"we owe reparations to the Iraqi people."

Natural citizen, or not?

Why does Obama not present a birth certificate, and quash this question about his natural-born status? This is really starting to bother me a lot.

It's an undeniable requirement - natural citizenship - that is explicitly required by our constitution. Do rules matter anymore, or is this another one of those pesky "fundamental flaws"?

What is the big deal in answering this question?

Thanks, Phil Berg, for raising awareness of this. I think that once we have set the precedent - that is that the rules don't really matter as written - well, anything therein can be discounted as obsolete, outmoded, or irrational...

This is Xander. He's very confused as to why giving his food to the neighbor's cat makes him patriotic..


Please keep this in mind while voting. Thank you.
