The Price of Freedom

2013 March 23

2016!!” … ”What will it take for the GOP to win in 2016??” … ”Ben Carlson – 2016!!” … ”Rand Paul – 2016!!” … “Ted Cruz – 2016!!” … “WTF 2016?

This week saw a flurry…ok, a BLIZZARD of “2016!!!” stories. From Dems and Republicans. And it’s gonna get worse.

Why? Because the audience (aka: Americans) is getting restless. On the Left it is becoming obvious to all but the dimmest bulb (which doesn’t narrow the Left much) that our economy ISN’T the greatest in the history of EVAH! And on the Right it is way past obvious that the Establishment GOP is really ‘Democrat-Lite’…all the same bull$hit, but with even less substance!

circusfatladyBoth Parties need the audience to stay in their seats…and not demand their money back. They need to rubes/Americans to keep letting them run their aging Circuses as they see fit…and with the same tired old “acts”.

The Republicans are promising a “New Lion Tamer for 2016”…(tbd)

The Democrats are, thus far, just offering the same old “Bearded Fat Lady” (Hillary)…but they’re hinting she may have NEW tricks!

All of which matters exactly Zero.Point.Zero. Because long before voting happens in 2016, Lord Obama will have deconstructed so much of our Republic that it won’t matter who is running the Circus.  But to complete his de-construction and move rapidly on his “fundamental transformation”, he needs CHAOS!  Chaos, you say?  Consider:

  • Our economy is one sneeze away from pneumonia…and the European economy HAS pneumonia, but the Doctors are calling it a “bad cold”.
  • Russia is two or three goose-steps away from USSR 2.0.
  • Iran is about 4 centrifuges short of an atomic bomb.
  • China is…well…scary. If China figures out how to deal with their issues (which are significant), we lose! If China does NOT figure out how to deal with their issues…we lose! Lose-Lose.

All of the above (plus much more) points to the FACT that long before 2016 happens, CHAOS will happen. Which is exactly what the Progressives, and their Lord and Master, Barack Obama, need.

In Greek mythology, Gaea sprang from Chaos and was the mother of all things. Thus in ancient Greece, the word “chaos” came to mean: “a great confusion out of which emerges order”.

Obama is not interested in fixing things…he needs more things broken! Domestically, Internationally, and Economically, the more chaos, the more opportunity. The more opportunity for him to impose HIS order. But the conditions aren’t quite ready just yet. He and his Progressive pals need time until the chaos is just right! And so the American people need to be distracted, and focused on 2016 (and beyond). How about a CIRCUS??

Step right up, ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls…see the wonders of the ages…just one thin dime, one tenth of a dollar…”.

Just “one thin dime”? Hey, that’s not so much…let’s all go to the circus, and be distracted for a while, eh? Maybe the Democrat bearded-fat-lady DOES have new tricks…and maybe the Republican lion-tamer (tbd) IS able to tame lions!!

You can plunk down your “one thin dime”, and pay the price of distraction…but rest assured, it is NOT the Price of Freedom.

    The chances of the GOP winning in 2016 is about as possible as me winning the NCAA basketball pool. It will be a cold day in Hell before that happens.

    MIC…“The chances of the GOP winning in 2016 is about as possible as”

    about as possible as it MATTERING who wins in 2016. It won’t.

    Chaos is gonna happen…and then Lord Obama will step in with his Tranquility Police and impose ORDER!!!

    I am sooooo not concerned with 2016…or 2014 for that matter. I truly believe I have voted in my last election for office beyond that of local officials. Everyone else is part of the circus…and it’s just not worth “one thin dime

    So our real problem is we only have a two ring circus to entertain us. (Dims, GOPers) What we really need is a three ring circus, aka third party. Maybe then somebody will burn down the tent and let the sunshine in…..

    My only observation about Obama is he is only good when the chaos is of his manafacture. (he knows the playbook.) When the chaos is external he folds like a cheap lawn chair. (not his playbook.) So I surmise that when the SHTF happens whomever the tyrant is, it won’t be him standing there, but someone else who saw the playbook and acted on it. Just an opinion.

    JR, could be. I am surprised it has taken these two countries to get back together. They have complimentary demands. China needs fuels, Russia has plenty. Russia needs manpower (dwindling population), China has plenty.

    The Cyprian politicians offer another solution — — The fat cat depositors (aka Russians) may get up to a 70% hair cut!

    I suspect two things will happen — 1) Putin comes forward with a Horse Head offer to Germany. (No heat without Russian oil Ms. Merkel) 2) The Oligarchs just buy up the two Cyprian banks. Might as well since they would have nearly paid the freight with a haircut. (Only barrier is what’s the spread on the defective loans in the banks.)

    In all the smoke of Cyprus this was missed — Spain has announced a 0.2% `fee` on all deposits.

    You know I don’t think whether a candidate is left or right matters; Americans seem to elect the most likeable and the most like them. Yes, Dumb Voters)

    From when I starting voting Carter, Reagan, Bush senior, Clinton, Bush II, Obama all were more personable than there opponents, communicated better, and were more like Americans than there opponents in peoples minds.
    Losers–Ford, Carter to Reagan, Mondale, Dukakis, Bush, Dole, Gore, Kerry, McCain and Romney. IN each case I’d say the more personable and the most ”I am like you” guy won.

    drdog, you are SUCH a cynic!!

    Putin would never EVER hold the Russian natural gas and oil back from Europe! Nope, the Europeans were right to put their faith in Russia, and stop developing the alternate routes for gas and oil! /sarc

    And the Chinese? They would never EVER hold the American economy hostage over the trillions of dollars we owe them. We were right to put faith in China. /sarc

    And the Iranians? They would never EVER use an atomic weapon to destroy the Jews. We are right to pressure the Israelis to trust the Iranians. /sarc

    yup…it’s all:

    Europe is in deeper $hit than us with their non-elected officials running things to fill their pocket books. Dumb Twits are going to need someone to bail them out and I don’t think America can afford it anymore. But, with liberals in charge we will.

    MiC, the whole world is playing ‘Musical chairs’ right now…and our “leaders” are promising the masses that the music will never EVER stop!

    As I recall from birthday parties as a kid, the first people to get booted out of the game were those who got caught up in the music. Useful idiots.

    No wonder!!! WTF?

    Lesley Gore was (born May 2, 1946 as Lesley Sue Goldstein.
    A self-avowed lesbian who has lived with her current partner for nearly 30 years, Gore has never been married, far as I can tell, so “Gore” is a name of choice, not matrimony.
    During Al Gore’s presidential campaign, the liberal media made much ado of Leslie Gore, apparently assuming the name connection would lend votes to Mr. Gore. That help spawn the rumor that the two were related.

    Lesley’s father was named Leo Gore.

    And Reince Priebus is about four innings short of a complete game.

    Apparently Leslie Gore was more interested in shacking up with Judy than the boy Judy stole from her. Here’s Leslie Gore from 2011. She’s the Jewish version on Mooch – lotsa junk in the trunk:

    “NBC reports from Rhode Island, where a local restaurant chain is now demanding that any clients paying with $100 bills also provide their name, phone number, and drivers’ license. By doing this – supposedly in the name of avoiding counterfeiting but don’t you dare mention fake bill spotting markets or UV light – it eliminates the only upside that paper money had over electronic transactions: anonymity. How soon before all other retailers and vendors decide that it is a good idea to demand their clients’ personal info, for the sake of avoiding counterfeiting of course, first in all $100 bill transactions, then $50, then $20, and so on?”

    Anyway 58 Billion budget and these guys can’t find 600 million for a core function. 🙄 riiiight.

    btw Scott Walker pressing forward with school voucher expansion while WI gop state senators back stab him over it. Just lovely. 🙄

    KH, 21,

    That’s funny. I don’t know if providing ID solves the restaurant’s problem. Unless the rules have changed it is who has possession of the fake bill that is the loser. Besides one could take this to the ultimate conclusion.

    [bus owner] He’s passing fake bills!
    [cop] Is that true?
    [patron] no.
    [cop] Can you prove it? (Like I should have too….)
    [patron] Yeah. Got it from the ATM in this establishment. Here’s the receipt.
    [cop, looking at bus owner] Your hands behind your back Sir……

    Bigger WTF! — “The push for the ban comes in the wake of arrests and the resignation of Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll.” — from the article. So they want to ban adult I cafe’s and the Lt. Guv got caught up in an arrests and had to resign? And all it is is a 1 liner in the article??

    Holy Toledo Batman!

    The Republic of Texas wants its gold back — Texas Moves to Repatriate its Gold from the Federal Reserve. Link here — Now all we need are a couple of defections from the colonels in the Army and AF and we are on our way.

    More WTF – list of the newly approved top level domain names.

    Simple solution – ignore DC.

    I’m thinking all the gold was sold long ago, thus the problem repatriating it to Deutschland, never mind Texas. I know, send them certificates of ownership! I wonder if I have any of it…

    Mr Evil – Glen Beck has said that he believes like many other assets that have been sold. Gold and all of these other assets have been sold and resold so many times that NOBODY really knows who owns what.

    Kind of like that the steel deal in China. The manufacturers had sold their reserves so many times, they did not have enough on hand to meet demand when it came.

    Personally, gold, silver and other precious metals are only good in the short run (prior to chaos) and later when it comes time to rebuild. You are better of investing in lead and beans.

    Folks you know that there has been a big run by many investors to buy farm land in the last 5 years. I found that curious because as a return on investment there are better short term ways to make money than farming. Then I realized why. In a chaos scenario as an asset it is damn hard to steal and even less interesting for a government to expropriate but yet its value would only increase over time.

    Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said he thought it was irresponsible to be considering major foreign policy decisions at 3 a.m. on Saturday morning.

    I think it is irresponsible for Bob Menendez to be considering anything other than STD percentages of Dominican hookers.

    Yeah, I got lead, I got beans, I got rice, yadda yadda, but I got some gold maple leafs (leaves?) and enough junk dimes to stun an ox. I’m good for the short term and the long term, even looking at a more rural setting. We’ll be ok. Indiana may not be that exciting, but that could be a virtue, yanno?
