If we had only learned from the mistakes of others
Chaos is the mother of tyranny. Chaos reigns when people operate in confusion and disorder. It is a state in which behavior and events are not controlled by reason. Today we are faced with a government and an elite controlled media that lie to the people and then lie about lying. They operate as if the country is theirs to run and ruin for their own personal enrichment. Chaos is a time like today when life makes little sense and we are force-fed such gobbledygook as the economy is booming, President Obama has outperformed Reagan when it comes to job creation and investment, inflation is under control, unemployment is at 4.9%. Over here in reality we are fighting endless wars for peace, working people are being squeezed between stagnant wages and rising prices, and almost as many able-bodied people have dropped out of the workforce as there are people working. This is chaos. This is the seedbed of tyranny.
Head Smashed In?
There is a town in Alberta, Canada with the evocative name of Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump. It takes its name from a geologic feature that North American Indians used to hunt bison. The Indians would stealthily arrange themselves around a herd of bison and, at a signal, jump up and alarm the herd into a stampede. By their strategic positioning, the Indians would cause the herd to stampede over a cliff (the buffalo jump) thus killing or sufficiently injuring the animals so that they’d be short work for Indians waiting below the cliff.
The Obama administration has been using buffalo jump hunting on the Congress and the American people. It is at the root of Rahm Emmanuel’s now notorious comment that “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” The “Stimulus” was one such stampede — Congress didn’t even take the time to read the bill before running [us] over the buffalo jump. The current one is the “Health Care Crisis”. Everyone run in fear! Obama will show us the “escape route”; in our rush to “safety” we won’t heed the fatal drop in front of us. Next will come the “Carbon Crisis”. And then...well, save something for next year. Run out of crises? Manufacture one.
If the American people don’t stop stupidly rushing headlong from every phoney Rahm-crisis their first awareness of impending doom will be on the ride down from the buffalo jump of disaster.
America needs to be punished for allowing our government to commit the crimes they do. We want to punish Julian Assange for showing that our government murdered innocent civilians knowingly.
America,we need to hide our faces in shame,we are no different than ISIS.
Oops nevermind. I can see it now. I read it both ways.
Weird question on the unemployment number. Back in Reagan’s day, did they use the U6 number (which is very high right now) or the U3 number (which is at the 4.9%) to determine the unemployment rate.
Things are falling into place at breakneck speed.
I can’t imagine what we’re in for in Nov.
There’s no telling what all they have planned before November to January.
Lies and spin are their new norm. Well, “norm” for the past 8 years especially.
I am concerned about anarchy.
Me too. I’d actually like to buy some more ammo, not to use it, but simply because I think it’s going to be very hard to get and super expensive.
I remember looking for 9mm several years ago. The Walmarts I visited across 3 states barely had 10 boxes. Maybe I found all the bad ones.
Bought a couple boxes (still had money then) of the cheap steel-jacketed Russian 9mm. Never, ever again.
4 jams in 20 rounds. I sold off the other box (friend’s father did it for me). Paid $10 and change - got $15 back. And a store bought it. Maybe it works better in other guns (I have a cheap 9mm - shoots very accurate - kicks like a mule).
I couldn’t believe it actually sold for that.
