71 Years Ago – Lest We Forget

2012 December 7
by bc3b

71 years ago Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, propelling the United States into World War II. The United States was ill-prepared for the attack. Today we are even less prepared than we were on the morning of December 7, 1941. In 2012 we are faced with challenges that didn’t exist in 1941 – Barack Obama, rules of engagement, a lack of patriotism and political correctness, which ties our hands in fighting the War on Terror or any other battles, especially those not involving Caucasian Christian opponents.

    Speaking of political correctness, the Air Force – the most politically correct branch of the service – targets pin-ups:

    I fear a majority of Americans either have forgotten…or were (intentionally) never taught.

    God bless the Greatest Generation!!!

    If a similar attack occurred now, I would expect Obama to apologize to whoever hurt us.

    For Immediate Release:

    Effective Jan 1, 2013, aspirin will be heavily taxed under Obamacare.

    The only explanation given was that they are white and they work. No other reason was given, but I thought you’d want to know about it.

    “Amsterdam is to create “Scum villages” where nuisance neighbours and anti-social tenants will be exiled from the city and rehoused in caravans or containers with “minimal services” under constant police supervision. The plan echoes a proposal from Geert Wilders, the leader of a populist Dutch Right-wing party. Holland’s capital already has a special hit squad of municipal officials to identify the worst offenders for a compulsory six month course in how to behave. – UK Telegraph

    Dominant Social Theme: We need to be free of these thugs and thieves.

    Free-Market Analysis: We’ve written many articles about the advent of private cities – run by multinationals in league with local or national governments.

    But it never occurred to us that the elites organizing this particular form of infrastructure would provide us with the other side of the organized corporate city – the criminal city”

    “Whilst denying that the new projects would be punishment camps for “scum”, a spokesman for the city mayor stressed that the special residential units would aim to enforce good behaviour.

    “The aim is not to reward people who behave badly with a new five-room home with a south-facing garden. This is supposed to be a deterrent,” he said.

    We would expect no less from modern municipal planners. The article goes on to tell us that this project has already been tried out on a small scale using “10 shipping container homes … The residents are under “24-hour supervision from social workers and police.”

    How this is different than an actual prison is hard to say, from our point of view. And how those who are pursuing the project are going to make it successful is hard to tell, as well.”

    You aiming for the Snake Bliskin part there WEC? This sounds like a backdrop theme right out of `Escape from NYC`.

    Would it not be cheaper to just put shock collars on the cretans?

    ‘The standard of living of the populace is low; almost everything, especially consumer goods, is scarce and available goods are of low quality; half of the Oceanian populace go barefoot – despite the Party reporting increased boot production. The Party claims that this poverty is a necessary sacrifice for the war effort; “the book” reports that this is partially correct, because the purpose of perpetual war is consuming surplus industrial production.

    The Inner Party upper class of Oceanian society enjoy the highest standard of living. O’Brien resides in a clean and comfortable apartment, with a pantry well-stocked with quality foodstuffs (wine, coffee, sugar, etc.), denied to the general populace, the Outer Party and the Proles, who consume synthetic foodstuffs; “Victory” gin and “Victory” cigarettes are of low quality.

    The proles live in poverty and are kept sedated with alcohol, pornography and a national lottery, yet the proles are freer and less intimidated than the middle class Outer Party, and jeer at the telescreens. “The Book” reports that the state of things derives from the observation that it is the middle class, not the lower class, which traditionally started revolutions, therefore tight control of the middle class penetrates their minds in determining their quotidian lives, and potential rebels are politically neutralised via promotion to the Inner Party or “reintegration” by Miniluv; nonetheless Winston believed that “the future belonged to the proles”.’

    A couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they’re physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..
    Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. ‘Want anything while I’m in the kitchen?’ he asks.

    ‘Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?’

    ‘Sure.’

    ‘Don’t you think you should write it down so you can remember it?’ she asks.

    ‘No, I can remember it.’

    ‘Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should
    write it down, so as not to forget it?’

    He says, ‘I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.’

    ‘I’d also like whipped cream. I’m certain you’ll forget that, write it down?’ she asks.

    Irritated, he says, ‘I don’t need to write it down, I can remember it!
    Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream – I got it, for goodness sake!’

    Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.
    She stares at the plate for a moment.

    ‘Where’s my toast?’

    A union steward walks into a bar next door to the factory. He is about to order a drink to celebrate Obama’s victory when he sees a guy close by wearing a Romney-for-President button, with two beers in front of him. He doesn’t have to be an Einstein to know that this guy is a Republican. So, he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear, “Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for the Republican.”

    Soon after the drinks have been handed out, the Republican gives him a big smile, waves at him, then says, “Thank you!,” in an equally loud voice.

    This infuriates the union steward. He once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. As before, this does not seem to bother the Republican. He continues to smile, and again yells, “Thank you!”

    The union steward once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Republican. Once again, this does not seem to bother the Republican. He continues to smile, and again yells, “Thank you!”

    The union steward asks the bartender, “What the hell is the matter with that Republican? I’ve ordered three rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all the silly ass does is smile and thanks me. Is he nuts?”

    “Nope,” replies the bartender. “He owns the place.”
