My question is; who is suprised by this? Those of you who are old enough to recall the leftist riots, disruptive tactics, and revolutionary activities of the late 1960s and early '70s should be able to appreciate the irony, that many of those same malcontents have graduated to power positions, and are now having to deal with a populist protest of their intentions. Some of their frustration is currently directed at enticing people to act like good Soviet citizens, secretly informing the government of any attempts by conservatives (of either - or no - party affiliation) to prevent America from being pushed under the figurative waters of nascent totalitarianism.
For the Record. An imaginative video blogger named Molotov Mitchell has struck again, this time encapsulating the political news week and letting Washington know that it's on thin ice.
Not your average summer camp. As long as we're nudging the realm of dark and dreary things, consider the ominous rumblings coming from a recent National Guard job ad, and keep this in mind: when nothing else makes sense, the worst-case scenario may be all that really makes any sense. Yes, we do have prisoner-of-war camps overseas, but we also had civilian interment camps in the US during WW2 for Japanese-Americans. As I've said repeatedly, human nature follows a downward spiral unless acted upon by a superior moral (internal) force or a vigilant physical and/or legal (external) force.
Here comes da Judge. Congratulations on the confirmation of our newest Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor, due in part to 8 Republicrats who voted to confirm. Apparently, we've become so sophisticated that it no longer matters that her record includes several allusions to racist tendencies. But then, real racism is only an affliction of white people, right?Oh, the pain! ObamaCare is coming to a country very near you, very soon; unless, that is, it can be stopped. Despite the absolutely draconian aspects of the healthcare (and I use the term 'care' advisedly), the malAdministration's propaganda machine is in full swing, attempting to malign genuinely concerned Americans with this megabillion-dollar sinkhole that, at its core, would be the institutionalization of the eugenics program that progressives have sought for so long. A Duke University professor has actually read the bill and does a decent job of explaining some relevant passages.
Among those concerned citizens are the members of AARP. The organization didn't do those members any justice when it decided to go along with ObamaCare. At a recent town hall meeting, the AARP reps walked out of the meeting rather than answer the questions - and yes, some of the complaints - of the audience. After the walkout, the audience remained, and held their own peaceful and reasoned discussions on the topic of government-run healthcare. But more recently, AARP has publicly denied Obama's assertion that the organization endorses his plan.
The Russians are coming! Those readers who are too young to remember won't appreciate the palpable fears of the Cold War at its height - the Cuban Missile Crisis. I can recall as a young boy a city-wide Civil Defense drill, with air-raid sirens and every car pulling off the road, while pedestrians sought cover of doorways. So for some of us it comes as no surprise that the Russian bear seems to be trying to reinstill those fears. Evidence includes recent suspected Russian attempts to hack into Twitter and Facebook - a tactic allegedly aimed at Georgian resistance- and Russian subs patrolling off our coasts. It's not that they weren't doing it before, but they seem to be ratcheting up the publicity. Perhaps Putin is adding to the subliminal stress level even as other communists attempt to reconstruct our own government on the Politburo model.
