What America Has Become

The Presidential Race

The case for Romney:

1.  He is not Obama, and

2.  He might slow the nation's decline
 and thus delay the inevitable collapse.

The case for Obama:

1.  Collapse is inevitable, he will hasten it, and

2.  That will enable the rebuilding effort
 to begin sooner. 

Mooching May Be the Way to Go

Those convinced that the U.S. economy is a goner, that the system is irreversibly corrupt, and that the national character has degraded to the point that its virtues no longer are retrievable have a point .  . . and may, in fact, be correct.

That certainly is the case insofar as the economy is concerned.  When the chickens come home to roost as inflation kicks in and skyrockets along with interest rates, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and pension payments the government is obligated to make together with interest on its humongous  debt will exceed its revenues, consuming more than it does and has the ability to take in.  Borrowing still more to make up the shortfall will be impossible.  Ready, willing, and able lenders will be hard to come by (except of course, for the Federal Reserve which can be counted on to continue printing unlimited quantities of worthless currency).

The most cynical (or, perhaps, realistic) prognosticators maintain that the optimum course of action is to do everything possible to hasten the inevitable collapse while preparing for the arduous rebuilding process that traditionalists hope will ensue.

If the foregoing is correct, joining the looters and moochers who already make up almost half the nation's population may be the best thing anyone can do. Just imagine how quickly the whole rotting structure could be brought down if 75 to 80 percent of the  people were to demand to be supported by the productive minority . . . .  Or, better yet, what about if the righteous 99% were to require the evil 1%  to fund all of the needs and desires of every member of their irresistible mob?

Idea Worth Pursuing

The Policy Announcement an American Leader Would Have Delivered to the UN

My statement to the United Nations would have been "The future does not belong to those who attack our embassies and consulates and kill our ambassadors. The angel of death in the form of an American bald eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence." 
. . . Rep. Allen West

Donate a Match for Worthwhile Bonfire of the Vanities Redux

A driver was stuck in a horrendous traffic jam on the beltway outside Washington, D.C. 

Nothing was moving. 

Suddenly, a man knocks on the window. 

The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?" 

"Terrorists have kidnapped Congress, and they're demanding $100 million in ransom money. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car, collecting donations." 

"How much is everyone giving, on average?" the driver asks. 

The man replies, "Roughly a gallon . . . ."

U.S. Media Embracing Islam

For a look at how America's mainstream media are adopting Islam and fostering it as the nation's religion take a look at this observant essay.

Like Jumping Into the Tiger Den

Am I the only one on the planet to note the similarity between the nut case who jumped into the Bronx Zoo tiger den and the loonies currently in charge of America's foreign and defense policies?

The guy in the Bronx got mauled in his effort to, in his words, "be as  one" with the tigers.

Doesn't seem to me to be much different from what we're experiencing as a result of the Obama team's efforts to cozy up with the Islamic animals  . . .  except, unfortunately, it's Americans other than the looney policy makers who end up getting mauled as a result of the policy makers' hallucinations.

Big Brother Wants To Keep Closer Watch Over Us

The government intends to extend its surveillance of its subjects to keep an eye on virtually every possible financial transaction of each and every one of us, according to this report.

Because the government is benevolent, it of course is doing this for our benefit . . . for our own good.

Pups Couldn't Stomach Words of the Prophet

Some of the neighborhood dogs to which I fed pages of the Koran infused with pig blood (as described in yesterday's post) regurgitated the material that they initially had eagerly consumed.

Their vomit included the indigestible holy pages without the pigs' blood, which the pups apparently were able to process.  All was not lost however as the pigs promptly devoured the upchucked material.   Nothing was wasted.

A Dose of Reality

President's Persona: Whatever's Most Advantageous and Convenient at Any Particular Time

Note from Senior Management [of Breitbart News]:

Andrew Breitbart was never a "Birther," and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of "Birtherism." In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.

Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama's ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.

It is for that reason that we launched "The Vetting," an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)--not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.

It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below--one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review

It is evidence--not of the President's foreign origin, but that Barack Obama's public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.
* * *
Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama's then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as "born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii." 

The booklet, which was distributed to "business colleagues" in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel. 

It also promotes Obama's anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White--which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

Obama’s biography in the booklet is as follows (image and text below):

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.   He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.

The Mess We're In

Best comprehensive description I've encountered to date of the economic mess in which America and Americans are stuck can be read here.

However, it behooves me to point out that the authors, notwithstanding their excellent analytical diagnosis, believe that we can extricate ourselves from the hole into which we have dug ourselves. 

I am not that optimistic. It appears to me that the American dream probably is dying and that the sun, in all likelihood, is setting on all of Western Civilization.

Pups Consume the Words of the Prophet

Bought a copy of the holy Koran for experimental purpose which led to an interesting discovery.

If one saturates it in pigs' blood, neighborhood dogs will eagerly devour the well-soaked pages, thus consuming and putting to good use the words of the prophet.

Will get another copy as soon as I have time to do so. Then I will try to video the whole process and post the video on this blog.

Empty Chairs Proliferating

Our Smile for the Day

Just in case you missed it –

Davey Jones of the 60's group "The Monkeys" died a few weeks ago.

The newspaper headlines read:

The Lead Monkey is dead!

When Joe Biden read the paper, he ran around the White House yelling:

I'm the president, I’m the president!

One can only imagine his disappointment.
