Duck And Cover

The signs... They are everywhere.

Not the billboards and posters littering our highways and streets, begging us to buy, buy, buy.

Not those kinds of signs.

I'm talking of the signs, signposts and indicators pointing to the unmentionable and unacceptable but undeniable approach of our collapse.

As the majority of Americans forge onward through their self-created fog of plausible deniability, I get a morbid kind of satisfaction watching as the very foundation of society slowly washes away beneath their feet.

Sign: Unemployment is not going down.

They have offshored our factories, our manufacturing capability - our jobs - to third world nations where workers make $2.00/day. These jobs will not be replaced or recovered in our lifetimes. We have no jobs to offer, no factories to offer jobs, because we cannot compete with the people that today are creating the things we used to create in the very factories we gave them, for a tenth of what we made them for.

Those highly touted stimulus-created jobs will vanish when the money dries up, then watch unemployment figure rise even further.

Sign: The debt continues to climb.

The Obama administration loves to blame Bush for the debt. Well, its true. Bush - a Progressive tri-lateralist and dedicated one-worlder - did create the first stimulus, get us into two disastrous wars, promoted the Progressive policies that Obama champions today. Obama and Bush are two peas in the same pod, but Obama buys a bit of time - and wiggle room - by blaming his predecessor.

But... Obama is increasing our debt at a rate four times faster than Bush, with no plans to start slowing down.

I could do this for pages and pages, but those of you reading this already know this, it's just preaching to the choir.

How about the housing market? It's about to implode.

How about rising costs? Of everything? That's being caused by the continuing loss of value of the dollar. What's causing that? They're printing more money - billions and billions - to buy back our debt. That's NEVER worked, never will. But it does destroy our money.(it's called inflation... That leads to hyper-inflation)

We won't wake up tomorrow to face the greatest collapse of a nation in the history of man. It takes time to slide down the slope from the very top to the very bottom.

But the signs are there... That we are sliding by the last exit.

So I will be spending more time and effort to dig in, to create something I can duck behind.

And besides, you do realize that this Administration and this Congress has passed laws that make it illegal to criticize the government in times of a national emergency?

Wouldn't want to break any new laws, now would we?

The Ultimate Snub

I just watched Obama address the UN. Durned if he didn't sound like Reagan with all his references to freedom and opportunity. His lofty oration on such things made me wonder if I was watching a confused stand-in instead of the real man.

FOX news (after Obama's speech) mentioned that Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be speaking shortly after Obama, and mentioned that our UN delegation was not present at Ahmadinejad's last speech to the UN. They had walked out, leaving only a lowly note-taker present. This is considered as the ultimate snub by one Nation to another.

The FOX talking heads wondered if our UN delegation would do the same thing today or remain in the chamber.

Which brings me to my main point today:

While Obama was speaking to the UN, cameras continually panned to the Israeli delegation section, showing that the Israeli delegation was not present. Their seats were empty. Apparently not even a note-taker.

So. Before the entire world, today at the UN, Israel delivered the ultimate snub to the United States, a Nation without who's total support Israel would cease to exist.

OK. If they want to embarrass the United States, spit in our faces with the entire world watching, fine by me. But let them experience the real world consequences of such actions.

Actions DO have consequences, and it's about time we started to give Israel the opportunity to learn this fact.

Remove our support. Apply the same sanctions to Israel as we have applied to Iran. Level the playing field.

I'm no fan of either side in this insane war and am constantly amazed how America let itself be trapped into propping up one side in this endless war over property rights.

And by the way FOX news fans, although FOX news talked of our delegation walking out on Iran's president recently, they made NO mention about Israels' disgusting show of contempt for the President of the United States today, even if it was Obama.

Maybe FOX should practice what it preaches... Fair and balanced reporting.

Don't hold your breath.

Who Came First?

Reading Fred's latest offers nothing to help stop the insanity, but it does point to the roots of all this mayhem.

Fred mentions some possible reasons why Moslems are trying to bury us. says Fred:

I find Buchanan, of the American Conservative, proclaiming that Islam is a Culture of Jihad, and most militant. No doubt. Very. Would it be poltroonish of me to note that just now Christian armies are busily annexing and wrecking Afghanistan and Iraq, having recently bombed Somalia? That they use robotic aircraft to murder Yemenis... encourage Israel to ruin Lebanon and to run a concentration camp for Moslems in Gaza, enthusiastically murder Pakistanis from the sky, and threaten Syria and Iran?

Those are real armies we are using, well armed and incredibly powerful armies, not a few buffoons armed with dated equipment and no proper training.

Fred continues:

The Islamic countries listed above are only those currently attacked by America. Let us look at the matter in another way. I append here a list of all Christian countries conquered by militant Moslems since 1529:

- - - - -

Next, a partial list of Moslem countries conquered by Christians:

Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Iraq (the first time), Iraq (again), Iran, Pakistan, East Pakistan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Yemen, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Dubai…

This list does not include such minor Christian conquests as North, South, and Central America, India, China, Southeast Asia, black Africa, and such.

So there you are, Christians... The pendulum is swinging back the other way. Your days of romping though nation after nation, backed by massive and unbeatable armies planting crosses everywhere - including places where they were not wanted - has reached its pinnacle. Your armies are no longer winning, not because they can't win, but because they are not allowed to win... By your own leaders that want them - and you - to lose.

Time for a few generations of "Their turn" to keep the kettle boiling.

Your heroes, such as Limbaugh and Beck, promote peaceful and lawful response. Yup... That's going to work out well against a horde of radical religious fanatics who will stone your wife or daughter to death for wearing a pair of jeans in public.

Our Muslim educated president is helping. Our Socialist/Progressive Congress is helping. Our uninformed and disinterested majority is helping.

The sun is setting on the Judeo-Christian religion, which is to say the Jewish religion. Christians can no longer pray in public or in schools. The ten Commandments cannot be publicly displayed. Children displaying Christian or Jewish symbols are expelled. Christian practices everywhere in America are under attack by government at every level.

Not that it matters.

There will be another day, another sunrise one day for Christan's in this endless and millennia-old conflict, so it matters not who came first... The Jew or the Arab.

But for the foreseeable future, invest in a Burkah factory. Your descendants will be grateful.

"There Are No More Good Men Left Here"

A predictable result of an endless and winless war:

A dozen US soldiers are facing trail accused of being part of a 'kill team' that allegedly killed Afghan civilians in an arbitrary fashion - and they even collected their victims' fingers as trophies of war.

Five soldiers have been charged with the killing three Afghan men 'for sport'. And seven more are accused of covering up the murders.

Our troops are not fighting an identifiable army in either Iraq or Afghanistan. They are fighting civilians whose only effective methods of combat are blowing up convoys or sniping from cover.

It is inevitable that soldiers under those conditions will start to see all civilians as the enemy and start treating them as such.

This kind of conduct marks the the point where an army starts to disintegrate.

I will not be at all surprised if incidents such as this continue to rise in number. I will not be at all surprised to learn that this sort of thing is already far more common than admitted by anyone in the military or the government.

Those soldiers that have lost whatever moral footing they had because of these wars? The ones that now kill for fun?

How do we handle them when they return home?

99 Lashes

Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, has also been sentenced to 99 lashes for a photo published of her without a headscarf, according to her son.

99 lashes.

Maybe these lunatic judges who sentence any human to 99 lashes need a taste of what they are inflicting on others.

Let's say... Any judge that imposes 99 lashes on someone has to endure just ten lashes of the same intensity, before they pass sentence, or be tossed from the bench.

My money says that those camel jockeys would never see another woman being lashed for any reason, and would have to get their sick jollies some other way.

99 lashes for a photo without a headscarf.

How sick and demented can a society get?

Get Real

Give me a freaking break:

KABUL—The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said the planned burning of Qurans on Sept. 11 by a small Florida church could put the lives of American troops in danger and damage the war effort.

Put our troops in danger? what the hell does this spit-and polish chair polisher think the troops are in now? I would love to hear him explain how burning a book that foments violence will "damage" the war effort. What will it do, make the war more warlike?

We watch almost daily as spittle-dribbling ragheads burn American flags everywhere in the Muslim world. OK, for every flag they burn, we burn a Quran. Insult for insult. Senseless, but something they may understand.

Gen. David Petraeus also said:

The Taliban would exploit the demonstration for propaganda purposes, drumming up anger toward the U.S. and making it harder for allied troops to carry out their mission of protecting Afghan civilians.

Protecting Afghan civilians is their mission?

What a crock of mealy-mouthed BS. Their mission was to get Osama. If that is no longer their mission in Afghanistan, then get them the hell out, and then we won't have to worry about a bunch of 12th century throwbacks foaming at the mouth.

The Arabs, the Muslims, the Semites... they don't want us on their "sacred" soil. OK, let's get off it. Leave them to their own devices. Leave them alone to go their merry goat-humping ways. But let them know that if they keep messing with us, we will blow them back to the stone age.
