Susan Rice... Who Is she?




 Rice is an inside-the-beltline child of  professional
 Washington insiders and has followed in the footsteps of her parents
 into the inner circles of power and privilege.

Rice, 48, was born in Washington, D.C., to scholar parents who were themselves involved in policy circles. Her father, Emmett Rice, was the second black governor of the Federal Reserve System; her mother, Lois Dickson Fitt, is an education expert at the Brookings Institution.

Rice received a degree in history at Stanford University in 1986 and attended Oxford before becoming a foreign policy aide to former Democratic Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis during his 1988 presidential run against George H.W. Bush.

In 1993 she joined the administration of President Clinton, serving at the National Security Council. She held various positions, including director for International Organizations and Peacekeeping, special assistant to the president and senior director for African Affairs.

She was a policy adviser during the genocide in Rwanda and also at a time when the Clinton administration was determining how to handle the emergence of al-Qaeda as a terror threat.

Following the election of Republican George W. Bush, Rice joined Brookings in 2002 as a senior fellow in the Foreign Policy and Global Economy and Development program, where she offered analyses on failing states and global hunger.

In 2004 she served as an adviser to the presidential campaign of John Kerry.

In 2008 she was asked to advise then-Sen. Barack Obama on foreign policy matters.

In January 2009, Rice was confirmed President Obama's permanent representative to the United Nations.

She is insider born and bred. As such, she has no concept whatever of the real world outside the beltline and how it operates. She demonstrates what I call the "Marie Antoinette" syndrome, her every waking moment clouded by a sheltered and pampered elitist view of the world. As a result, I would recommend extreme caution in appointing her to any post in which she would be representing the American People.

She has been a foreign policy advisor for many high-powered politicians. That's not good. Anyone with eyes can see the mess our foreign policy is today, and if Susan Rice had anything at all to do with any of it, I wouldn't let her anywheres near a position of authority in our foreign affairs.

Anytime you see that a person has been "educated" at Harvard, or Yale, or Oxford, or Stanford, institutions of that level which only the privileged and the connected are allowed to attend,  you can bet money that wherever they go and whatever they are into is not going to benefit you in any way.

And We're Paying Them For This?



This from Anne Barnhardt:

Wife-swapping and other perverse, orgiastic activities are extremely common among the US flag officer corps. The level of bizarre sexual depravity we are seeing with Petraeus and now Allen, is common to the point of being pedestrian. It is exactly the same kind of sodomitical filth that pervades the political class. They are all sex perverts and cheats. Find me a flag officer or politician that isn't cheating on his spouse or a pervert and I'll be shocked. Sexual perversion is intrinsic to this class of people. These people are psychopathically insane, because you would have to be psychopathically insane to want anything to do with either the political class OR the flag officer corps today.

I can't tell you how many emails I have received over the last year and a half from men who have exited the United States Military as either a Captain or Major because they simply could not bear to be a part of the repulsive, honorless, amoral culture. They couldn't advance because at a certain point you literally have to sell your soul and become a purely political animal in order to climb the ladder.  And are you really surprised? Every single flag officer in the United States Military today is, by definition, an oath-breaking traitor. Barack Obama is not eligible to be POTUS and is almost certainly not a U.S. citizen. And not ONE WORD. Not one word from the flag officer corps. Why? Because they are politicians at heart, and they will never do anything to jeopardize their O-7, O-8, O-9 or O-10 pension packages.


http://barnhardt.biz/index.cfm

Scroll down to: "NIGHT OF THE LONG KNIVES PART 2

If even a tenth of this it true we are in serious trouble far beyond what we imagined. Even so, just reading this made my stomach physically turn.

The possibility that our entire flag officer corps is nothing more than a bunch of "pathetic, pervy fornicators with the common sense of a pile of toenail clippings" should make any real American sick. It means the military will not come to the defence of our compromised Constitutional Republic.

If so, then we are in for one hell of a ride, you and I. We get to watch as everything we ever worked for is dismantled and is replaced by something we will not recognize, forced upon us  by people we do not want in our lives.

The saddest part is watching two generations of brainwashed younger Americans dance in the streets as they celebrate what they presently believe to be a great victory. Don't waste your time talking to them. To them , you an out-of-touch racist, sexist bigot and homophobic throwback. They just "know" better than you, regardless of the fact they are incapable of critical thinking and have never once considered the possibility that what they see as truth just might be wrong.

I guess it's really true... nobody learns anything the easy way, so it looks like two generations of Americans are for some hard, hard lessons, lessons the likes of Valerie Jarret and Bernadine Dohrn will be more than willing to teach them.

Nothing is constant but change, but we could have done a hell of a lot better in determining the changes we are now facing.

A Small Nibble Of Reality

 
 
 
This demand is total bullcrap
 
 
Digest this:

According to new data from the IRS, people who make $1 million or more had an average tax rate of 20.4 percent in 2010. Tax filers who earned $30,000 to $50,000 paid an average rate of 4.8 percent, while those who made between $50,000 and $100,000 paid 7.7 percent. Those making under $30,000 had a negative effective rate. meaning they paid no federal income taxes after deductions and credits.
 
 
This is real data from the IRS.
 
Which both Obama and Romney are - without doubt -  aware of.
 
So both men are bald-faced liars that should be laughed at, then ignored, then forgotten.

Minorites Won the Day, The Election And The Nation

 
A witless idiot celebrating his own demise. He is not a part
 of the "we", unless he is one of the below named minorities.
 

This last election, in which a majority of voters - a coalition of minorities -  re-elected a bi-sexual black man, An anti-Constitutional Statist raised under the beliefs and teachings of Marx and Lenin, a man who - along with his radical wife - has demonstrated open hostility towards what has been described as "white America", a man claiming to be a Christian, but by his actions has exposed his Muslim roots.

This coalition of minorities re-elected a man who believes there are no consequences to massively growing the greatest national debt the world has ever seen, that more taxes and regulation will bring about prosperity, that free everything for everybody is the right formula for peace and prosperity, that the American Republic created primarily by the evil, vicious and greedy white man should be destroyed and replaced by a nation of tree-hugging, windmill-loving, non-Christian Gaia worshiping diversity-loving minorities in a paradise of zero industrial pollution, electric cars, equality and love.

Sounds great. Now let's see if they can pull it off.

This coalition of minorities is - of course - celebrating what they consider a great victory and now realize that this last election was a game-changer of epic proportions, which it was. The white male has been bested in this national king-of-the-hill game. The white male, after decades of assault, has been dethroned and cast out by a coalition of minorities that now expect their long anticipated rewards.

How can we generally identify these individual minority groups?

Well, a good way is to define them as they define themselves. They are:

Women, particularly feminists
Blacks
Hispanics
Asians
Native Americans
Homosexuals of all stripes
Any kind of non-American foreigner
Anyone claiming any religious belief other than Christianity
(original list over at http:// trueanomaly.blotspot,com))

What these groups of minorities haven't fully realized yet is that only one of them will be able to be on top, to be number one, to be the group that makes all the critical decisions. Let the infighting begin.

As usual, after any major victory, the masses of cannon fodder-type soldiers that won the day for their leaders will be demanding their "right" to pillage and loot. Funny thing about this battle though: The nation these minorities just won has been looted already. There are no spoils left to divvy up except massive debt, a failing economy and a collapsing monetary system.

However, many of these neo-victors have been propagandized into believing that the homes, property and possessions of whomever they don't like is a part of the loot they now have a "right" to take, and that making a few new rules and regulations reflecting that attitude will make it all possible.

That's when they will find out they may have won a big battle, but the war is far from over.         

100 Car Pileup

... Caused by dense fog... and - as usual - not slowing down.


Typical "human interest" photo of a 100 car pileup
 
 
As of Friday morning, authorities had not yet tallied all the vehicles involved in the massive Thanksgiving morning pileup on Interstate 10 west of Beaumont, but all of the estimated 100-plus wrecks have been removed from the roadway.
State troopers estimate that 80 to 120 people were injured. The injured were transported to hospitals in Beaumont, Port Arthur and Winnie, so an exact number remained unavailable early Friday.
Troopers blame dense fog in the area at the time, with a chain-reaction of crashes occurring soon after the first impact. The first crash was in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10, with the second crash in the westbound lanes, officers say.
A Pearland couple was killed Thursday in a massive wreck west of Beaumont, which officials attributed to low visibility from dense early morning fog as well as speeding traffic.
At least four separate wrecks involving more than 100 vehicles, including many tractor-trailers and at least one tanker, had closed Interstate 10 near Beaumont for most of the day.


http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Pearland-couple-killed-in-100-vehicle-wreck-near-4059783.php

I know it's an awful thing to say, but when I looked at the above photograph taken at the scene, my first thought was that "The land whales are beaching themselves".

"$70,000 down The Sewer"




Judge Judy said it all. But, if I said anything about this, I'd probably go to jail or something.

Usng Them Up

Israel's "Iron Dome" missile interceptor batteries have been busy taking out the rockets fired from Gaza.





The Iron Dome intercepted two Iranian-made Fajr-5 missiles aimed at Tel Aviv on Saturday. The missiles marked the third attack on the heavily populated central city in as many days, after Palestinian terrorists from Gaza fired four missiles toward the financial capital on Thursday and Friday.

Problem is: They are using up those very expensive and very few in number Patriot" type missiles on the  small stuff coming from the Gaza Strip that does little damage.

How many will they have left when the big missiles start raining down from Iran?

Less than they had a few days ago, that's for sure.



A Picture Is Worth...

Thanks to Ex-Army for this soon-to-be classic:

 
 
 
 

EPA's Jackson And Her Secret E-Mails

It's about time:



This woman is the gold standard of what can happen when you believe
 you and your friends are "above the law". 
 
 
A  House committee has launched an investigation into whether EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used an email alias to try to hide correspondence from open-government requests and her agency’s own internal watchdog — something that Republican lawmakers said could run afoul of the law. The science committee has asked Ms. Jackson to turn over all information related to an email account under the name of “Richard Windsor,” which is one of the aliases identified by a researcher looking into the EPA.
The committee has also asked the  White House's lawyer and EPA's inspector general to look into the matter and report back by the end of this month, saying that the secret email accounts could have been used to keep key information from official watchdogs as well as the public.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/nov/17/congress-demands-epas-secret-email-accounts/

Well of course she's using secret e-mails and the like. It's the way these people operate... always undercover and in stealth mode.  Openness would destroy these people like sunlight destroys vampires.

None of these "requests" will be honored. Those records will have to be subpoenaed and grabbed before they  can be destroyed.

And odds are that whatever the House finally gets it's hands on will have been thoroughly sanitized.

What we need is a few hackers to go get these E-mails while they still exist in their original form.


Drought? No Drought Here... Move Along

This really didn't happen and doesn't matter if it did, says the EPA.


No, we did not have a drought anywhere important this year... other than all of  America's farm belt.

The Environmental Protection Agency, led by that Mad woman Lisa Jackson, is rejecting requests from states and meat industry groups to waive regulations that require the blending of ethanol into gasoline.

In  a stunning demonstration of their determination to cripple this nation, the EPA concluded The agency has not found evidence to support a finding of severe ‘economic harm’ that would warrant granting a waiver of the Renewable Fuels Standard”

http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/268453-epa-rejects-bids-to-waive-ethanol-mandate

The EPA's other resident Mad Woman Gina McCarthy said - in a particularly ignorant statement - that "We recognize that this year's drought had created hardship in some sectors of the economy, particularly for livestock farmers (the folks who grow our food) But our extensive analysis makes clear (to them only) that Congressional requirements for a waiver have not been met."

Extensive analysis? Who the hell are they trying to fool?


Where this year's drought occurred and it's severity.
 

Did they even bother to study the data like shown on the above map? What sort of "extensive analysis" would gloss over this kind of reality?

Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen  praised the EPA for  “basing its decision on thoughtful analysis of the facts and not emotion or panic.” Well of course he would say that. His livelihood depends on corn being used for fuel instead of feeding the world.

"Thoughtful analysis"? Who the hell is he trying to fool?



A boat dock at a Texas lake. Nope, no drought problems here.
 

Rob Green, executive director of the National Council of Chain Restaurants aid, “This year’s catastrophic drought seriously reduced corn yields and has lead to a situation where the RFS’ unsustainable mandates force ethanol fuel to commandeer a shrunken pool of available corn for food and livestock feed.”

Bottom line:

We had a severe drought this year that had a huge impact on our corn production. The available remaining corn should be reserved for food production, not for an inefficient fuel additive.
But ideological fools like EPA head  Lisa Jackson,  EPA's Air Regulator Gina McCarthy and the self-serving Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen are indeed placing their ideology and self-interest ahead of any decision to properly address the consequences of this severe drought.

Since the entire concept of corn into ethanol is unsustainable - it takes more energy to produce corn-based ethanol than it creates -  And the fact that preventing starvation worldwide is more important than supporting an industry that will ultimately fail, the decisions made by these people are not logically explainable or supportable.

A reminder: These are the people that President Obama has appointed and supports.But what else can we expect from a Marxist ideolog who has no experience whatever in how the real world works?

Major Obama Doner Discovers Consequences Are Real




He didn't earn his money, he inherited it.


One of the biggest medical device manufacturers in the world, Stryker will close their facility in Orchard Park, New York, eliminating 96 jobs in December. Worse, they plan on countering the medical device tax in Obamacare by slashing 5% of their global workforce - an estimated 1,170 positions.

Welcome to  the real Obamaworld!

Just like in Disneyworld, there are no free rides.

Perhaps if Jon had actually worked for and earned his money he would have been a bit more careful with it. what's that old saying? About a fool and his money?






Confirmed...Twinkies Are No More



Another Obama/Union casualty
 
Hostess Brands Inc. filed for bankruptcy early Friday, announcing it has shuttered operations and ended production of the snack cakes and breads known to generations of Americans.
The Texas-based company said in a statement on its website that it will try to sell its assets, including the iconic Twinkie, Ding Dong and Wonder bread brands. Bakery operations have been suspended at all 36 plants, including one in Rocky Mount, following a weeklong strike by thousands of workers protesting 8 percent wage cuts and benefit concessions.

http://www.wral.com/hostess-files-for-bankruptcy-shuts-down/11781223/

36 plants and 18500 workers.

The Union employees preferred no paychecks compared to an 8% cut this year, with raises each of the next two years guaranteed.

No doubt liberals everywhere will blame the evil corporation, it's old white men owners(the CEO is actually black), Bush and the tooth fairy for all this, instead of finally waking up to the fact that this is a direct result of Obama and his policies. That, and - of course - RACISM.

This is just the start. Expect to read news like this day in and day out for the foreseeable future as the true costs of Obamacare and his thousands of new onerous regulations start taking effect.

No More Ho-Ho's?

 
Hostess Brands CEO said Wednesday the company will liquidate unless striking workers return to the job by the end of the day on Thursday.
 
"We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike," Greg Rayburn said in a statement.

Workers are protesting a contract imposed by a bankruptcy court. The bakers union has called the contract "outrageous."
A liquidation would result in more than 18,000 workers losing their jobs.

http://www.kwch.com/business/kwch-hostess-ceo-gives-striking-workers-thursday-deadline-20121114,0,2860295.story

Friday. That's tomorrow.

Of course, it's the bakers union behind all this. They kept demanding higher and higher wages, more benefits, pensions, all that union stuff, until the company could no longer afford it, so they went bankrupt.

Now the union is striking because of the decisions made by the bankruptcy court, and another 18,000 people are about to be out of work.

And so, another American industry, a household brand name, and a national icon may be vanishing into the  mist. Gotta wonder what a Chinese-made Ho-Ho would taste like. ... rice cake?

You just can't make this stuff up.

Secession Movement Gathers Steam



Which United States Are You A Part Of?


As of this writing, Citizens of 40 States have now filed a secession request with the federal government.

Most political observers are poo-pooing the whole movement  as sour grapes or racism,  or something along those lines.

But consider this:

Not one single State petitioned for secession when Obama won his first four years as president. So this secession movement is not because he is black. Not one single State petitioned for secession because the Republicans lost and the Democrats won. So it's not because of sour grapes.

It's because of debt. Massive, overpowering debt.

As a candidate, Obama was the candidate of Hope and Change. Obama made many promises indicating he would be a good steward of the national finances. Most everybody was willing to give him a chance to deliver on his promises.

But rather than getting a handle on our national spending spree, he has added to the debt at a rate faster than any president in our history.

This National debt is 16 trillion and climbing, 6 trillion of that added by Obama during his first four years. The fact that Obama has been re-elected means it will increase by at least 1 trillion a year for the next ten years(he has told us so), and that every person who is presently a citizen of this federal government that now owes a personal bill on the debt of $189,000 will see their portion of this debt increase by almost 5% a year for the next ten years. That does not include the interest that will be tacked on.

If you are a part of an average family of five, your family - right now - owes $945,000 on the federal debt, not including interest and penalties.

At the end of these ten years of  Obama's rising debt, the national debt will be at least 26 trillion, and that family of five will owe $1,890,000, assuming the nation has not gone bankrupt. Don't forget the interest and penalties.

A lot of Americans are now realizing that this insane path to financial ruin being followed by the federal government is one they have no wish to be on. So, they are exercising their Constitutional right to  initiate  secession, not from these 50 United States by and under the Constitution, but from the legal entity known as the United States described as the District of Colimbia, it's territorities and its federal enclaves, the United States that the federal government exists in.

Look at your Drivers License. What State issued it? You are a Citizen of that State, and if that State secedes from the United States represented by the federal government, you just saved a fortune in debt the federal government wants you to pay back.

Remember, there are three United States. The United States entity the States are wishing to seperate themselve from is the United States legally defined as the District of Columbia, it's territoriess and federal enclaves, the entity in which the "federal"governement exists and controls.

States can secede from this federal entity, divesting theselves of its control and obligations, and still remain a part of these 50 United States united by and under the Constitution. People in such a State will still be a Citizen of these United States united by and under the Consttitution.  This is something you were not taught in school, but should have been.

If secession ever gets a real head of steam, it will be because of overpowering debt, not because a black man is president. The presidents color does not matter, his actions do.

Bottom line is: Sooner or later, everybody has to make hard decisions based on money. And what color anybody is will not have has a thing to do with it.

Time will tell how all this falls out. But forget this bogus "racism" charge. It's not about color, it's about debt.

Nobody Wants To Hear This



This kind of brutality respects no borders, no nations, no peoples.


Ten years ago,  the American military was ordered to invade and occupy two sovereign nations. In the ensuing decade, our military has destroyed their infrastructure, laid waste their cities and homes and killed many thousands of civilians and noncombatants in the process.

Throughout this decade, very few Americans questioned why we were there, what we were doing, and what our goals were. The majority  acted like good Americans, waved the flag, cheered the president and supported the troops, who - we were told - were defending freedom and spreading Democracy.

We - being remote and distant from any of the distress and grief we were causing and are responsible for - went back to our daily lives, shutting out the horrors we were inflicting on the citizens of two foreign nations. A major reason for this is because - unlike in Viet Nam - the media "embedded" itself with the military and were not allowed to send home any photos or stories of the true misery and horror about what was occurring.  This was not by accident. The government had learned it's lesson well about Media control when Americans were exposed daily to the slaughter of the Viet Nam war.

According to the man who singlehandedly started these wars, George W. Bush, it was because one of those nations - Iraq - was developing Weapons of Mass Destruction that would most assuredly be used against us, and the other - Afghanistan - for  intentionally harboring the man who masterminded the destruction of two buildings in New York and  a small portion of the Pentagon, an attack which resulted in the death of around 4,000 Americans.

Ten years later, we all know Iraq had no WMD's and we know that Osama Bin Laden was never found in Afghanistan. We are told he was once there, but no proof has ever been offered.

It was with mixed feelings that I supported our troops being sent into harm's way, sent by a man now shown to have no ethics and no honor, the liar and charlatan George W. Bush. That he - and his entire administration - was lying about all of it a now a proven fact. To this day, none of us know the true reasons behind George W. Bush's mad rush to war with Iraq.

We did send some special forces into Afghanistan to hunt down and kill Osama Bin Ladin, a reasonable response to what our intel was telling us about his whereabouts. But at the same time, Bush sent entire armies into Iraq, a place that had nothing to do with the attack on 911.

Why? No one has answered that question.

Now, ten years later,  things are changing. The wars are winding down, the troops are coming home. The present president has pulled us out of Iraq and intends to pull us out of Afghanistan. But our departure will not automatically heal any wounds nor will it dissipate the hatred for us that ten years of indiscriminate slaughter has created. Whether or not we are finished killing Muslims does not matter, they are not finished with us.

Ten years of constant war not only changes conditions, but it changes men.

Now, Lew Rockwell brings up a new problem we are about to discover while discussing supporting the troops:

I’d like to – and would – if “the troops” were actually defending “our freedoms” – rather than stomping the freedoms of people across the globe. Us included, I hasten to add. Because you can’t expect “the troops” who brutalize people abroad to not come home and abuse the people here. The mindset – and the precedents set – cannot be compartmentalized. Brutality – contempt for other human beings – cannot be turned off and on. The transformation of Andy Griffith into Officer 82nd Airborne is no random happenstance.


It has happened for a reason.

The casual bloodlust of the average American – safely cocooned in front of his TeeVee (probably watching fuuuuuuhhhhttttball) also has consequences. Osama was right. You send troops to other people’s countries, topple their leaders, drop bombs on them from afar. It tends to annoy those people. Some will try to hit back. We call it “terrorism.” Just as the British of King George III’s era called the insurrectionist colonists who dared to fight back “terrorists.” Just as Reinhard Heydrich’s SD thugs called the partisans in the occupied east a few generations later. Just as we – “we” being the comfortable couch potatoes watching “the game” – call anyone who dares object to the American Imperium – and its imperial storm troopers.

There is  more about this at:

http://lewrockwell.com/peters-e/peters-e263.html

We have not yet even started to pay the bill for George W. Bush's insane adventurism. Some of the cosst will be devastating.

IQ. It Does Matter



Now here's an interesting bit of information:


IQ averages around the world.  Are the Chinese really the smartest?


Whether you agree with it or not, there a a lot a very smart people who make critical decisions based on information like the information presented on this map. There is also a very lot of not-so-smart people who ignore or deny the value of this sort of information.

There is an accompanying article to this map. read it if you're interested:

PS: Whether you agree or not will not change the data.


Another Animal Gets His Fifteen Minutes

 
 
Zubin Bogdanoff, 300 pound Neanderthal


ROCKLIN (CBS13) – An 83-year-old man was allegedly the victim of a beating by a man 50 years younger than him in what Rocklin police are calling a road rage rampage.
Police said the incident started around 10 a.m. Saturday when the suspect, identified as 33-year-old Zubin Bogdanoff, didn’t like the way the elderly man was driving. Bogdanoff allegedly followed the man a half mile to his home and confronted him in his garage.

http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2012/11/10/suspect-arrested-after-allegedly-beating-elderly-man-in-road-rage-rampage/

83-year-old men can't possibly defend themselves from attacks like this. That's why they are allowed to buy handguns and are issued permits(where required) to carry them. If  that elderly man had been carrying, this 300 pound out-of-control barbarian would now be where he rightly should be... on a slab in the morgue.

In a world of seven billion people, none of us need human excreta like this guy wandering around stirring the pot.



Contrasts

 Superpower first ladies:

 
Peng Liyuan, China's next First Lady


Michelle Obama, America's present First Lady
 
One is interested in diamonds - lots of them - the other is interested in military medals - lots of them.

Since both women (and their husbands) will inevitably affect your life in some way or another, which one is the most - or least - worrisome?

You just gotta know this is a trick question.


Manna From The Feds

Money will continue to fall like rain from Washington:

But only for the Blue States

Here's something to watch for.

As we all settle into the second Obama term, look for federal funds to the predominately red States start to dry up and disappear.  From the very top down, the Obama Administration is loaded with the "payback time" kind of mentality, and that payback will be in the form of vanishing federal funds and onerous new regulations tailored exclusively for them.

States that went for Obama big time will continue to see federal largess, and will be given even more as reward for having  backed the incumbent.

Look for it... watch for it... it's going to happen.

Many red States will be in for a rude awakening as they discover they are far more dependent on federal handouts than they realized. How they react to this new reality will be most interesting to watch. Some will tighten their belts and adjust as necessary, others will try crawling back to Washington with their hands out, only to discover the incredibly high price that will be demanded for being allowed to rejoin the welfare society.

Eventually, a few States will rebel and tell the feds to go to hell. That's when the clock will start ticking to Obama's planned armed takeover of the entire nation.

Interesting times are ahead for us all.

Some of us may not accept it or believe it, but since when did that ever change anything?

Numbers And Reality

 
The New National Anthem


The election is over and the number crunchers have finished gathering all the voting trends data.

Here's the way Americans voted:

93% of blacks voted for Obama.
71% of Mexicans voted for Obama.
72% of Asian voted for Obama.
85% of Muslims voted for Obama.

59% of Whites voted for Romney.

To state it differently, a stunning number of minorities - along with 41% of whites - voted for the non-white democratic candidate.

A few realities need to to pointed out at this turning point in America history.

The Democratic party, always the Progressive/Socialistic party of  bigger and bigger government, is now also the party of  nearly all voting non-whites.  They have gathered enough minorities under their tent to always assure a victory for the democratic candidate.

The democrats will now do two obvious things: 1) - They will grant amnesty to those millions of illegals already here in the United States. These new minority "Americans" will vote overwhelmingly Democratic as they  now do, and, 2) - The democrats will make it even easier for immigrants of all stripes to enter America. This will also increase their percentage of any vote.

Simply put,  the Republican party is finished. There will never again be another Republican president.

Of course, 41% of white Americans will see this as a victory. They have been convinced that whites - particularly white males,  are inherently evil and the prime cause of all the worlds ills.

The democrats will do something else, something not so obvious now, but soon will be. They will take more and more money money from the middle class(still predominately white) and give it to the poor(still predominately non-white.) Do not believe the democrats if they say otherwise... they must do this to retain control.

So, if you are a white male, or a white female not married to or living with a non-white, prepare to get burdened with more and more taxes on your income.Your quality of life will go down - guaranteed - as non-whites take more power and more of the nations assets and wealth.

Look at the above photo. What - or who - do they think they have overcome?

One other interesting statistic: White males own over 90% of the guns in America.

Perhaps that's one reason why Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is working so diligently to get the UN to outlaw private ownership of guns.

Perhaps thats why FEMA and the DHS have been buying millions and millions of rounds of ammunition.

Perhaps FEMA and the DHS have now become a part of that "civilian" army Obama called for, the one he said should be as large and as well equipped as the United States Army, but an army solely under the control of the president.

None of this is accidental, all of is just a part of the grand plan Progressives have been pushing for decades.

I can see to good outcome from any of this.

This Didn't Take Long...

Obama's version of an American oil well. Shut down and capped.


Not all the votes are even counted yet, but:

The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.

The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration. It faces a 30-day protest period and a 60-day process to ensure it is consistent with local and state policies. After that, the department would render a decision for implementation.

http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/267095-interior-proposes-shielding-federal-lands-in-west-from-drilling

So much for Obama's promise to develop our own resources. This should help to demonstrate that anyone who believes a single thing Obama says is a fool.

I sure hope those idol worshipers and tree huggers like $10.00/$15.00 a gallon gas, because they certainly voted for it.

Oh yes... don't forget the coming brownouts and blackouts nationwide they voted for also, as that mad woman Lisa Jackson at the EPA closes more and more power plants.

Ir will be an amazing thing for the entire world to watch as America slowly grinds to a halt: Out of gas, out of electricity, out of jobs, out of money and out of luck.



Petraeus Bites The dust

There is so much more to this:

LANGLEY, VA. — CIA bigwig David Petraeus admitted to an extramarital affair with biography-mistress Paula Broadwell, who is now under FBI investigation for snooping through his emails. Internal documents from the FBI and the Office of Senator David Vitter (R-LA) reveal that “Mrs.” Broadwell was likely employed by the notorious “D.C. Madam,” who “hung herself” in suspicious circumstances.

http://www.chronicle.su/news/paula-broadwell-all-in/
(read for an amusing bit of blather on all this)
 

Paula Brodwell


This woman spent three years following Petraeus around to get what she wanted, supposedly for his biography. Obviously, that's not all she wanted.

But why?

This woman was much, much more than just another biography writer  fond of a little sack time with other women's husbands.

Mrs. Broadwell  is a 1995 West Point Graduate.

She has a Masters Degree from the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

She earned a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

She has served as Director of the Jebsen Center for Counter-Terrorism Studies at  The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tuffs University.

She  entered the Ph.D. program at Department of War Studies at Kings College London.

She served in the United States Army and is a Major in the United State Army Reserve.

Now, why would any woman with all that background, all those fine-sounding credentials and all those degrees spend three years following one general around?

Particularly this woman, an obvious professional student, military big shot and Washington insider,  a woman whose educational and career path was designed to get her solidly into  the beltline and the government's spheres of influence. Why blow(no pun intended) all that to just to go down in history as another Lewinsky?

Apparently, someone of great power and influence wanted some real dirt on one of America's leading generals before he was placed in a position of great responsibility at the CIA.

Control, it's all about control. What did they offer this woman?

It took two years for an ATF agent to compromise Randy Weaver, a relative nobody living way back up in the hills, so the  three years it took sweet little "Author" Paula to compromise a United States Three-Star General was definitely worth the effort to somebody, somewhere.

When it's your tax dollars paying these people and their bosses, time and money mean next to nothing. I could care less about this modern liberated female and her sluttish ways - Washington has a surplus of unethical and amoral hot-bodied sluts -  but I would love to know who put her up to all this, and it sure wasn't some D. C. Madam.

By the way, she is married and has two children, not that it means anything to her. I would imagine this woman's carefully crafted career is over the minute Obama is gone.

My best guess is the Petraeus was about to blow the whistle on the Benghazi disaster, was threatened with exposure if he didn' t support the administrations official fairy tale, so he got the jump on the scum, told the story himself, and then resigned.

Sometimes a mans honor is more important to him than a job that requires that he lie to cover his boss and the vermin he has surrounded himself with.

ADDENDUM:

Now they are telling us he sent this woman thousands of E-mails after she dumped him. How many of you really believe that?



You Get One Guess, Round Two

 
 


Who am I?

I was born in one country, raised in another.
My father was born in another country. I was
Not his only child. He fathered several
Children with numerous women.

I became very close to my mother, as my
Father showed no interest in me. My mother
Died at an early age from cancer. I became
Close with my grandmother.

Later in life, questions arose over my real
Name.

My birth records were sketchy and no one was
Able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth
Certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted
To Christianity, as it was widely accepted in
My country, but I practiced non-traditional
Beliefs, didn't follow Christianity, except
In the public eye under scrutiny.

I worked and lived among lower-class people
As a young adult, disguising myself as
Someone who really cared about them..

That was before I decided it was time to get
Serious about my life and I embarked on a new
Career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing
Up. It was clear to those who read my
Memoirs that I had difficulties accepting
That my father abandoned me as a child.

I became active in local politics in my 30's
Then with help behind the scenes, I literally
Burst onto the scene as a candidate for
National office in my 40s. They said I had a
Golden tongue and could talk anyone into
Anything. That reinforced my conceit.

I had a virtually non-existent resume,
Little work history, and no experience in
Leading a single organization. Yet I was a
Powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to
Me as though I was a magnet and they were
Small roofing tacks.

I drew incredibly large crowds during my
Public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on
My country's foreign policy. I was very
Critical of my country in the last war and
Seized every opportunity to bash my country.

But what launched my rise to national
Prominence were my views on the country's
Economy. I pretended to have a really good
Plan on how we could do better and every poor
Person would be fed, housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for
Getting us into this mess. It was the free
Market, banks,  corporations. I decided to
Start making citizens hate them and if they
Were envious of others who did well, the plan
Was clinched tight.

I called mine "A People's Campaign" and that
Sounded good to all people.

I was the surprise candidate because I
Emerged from outside the traditional path of
Politics and was able to gain widespread
Popular support.

I knew that, if I merely offered the people
'hope', together we could change our country
And the world.

So, I started to make my speeches sound like
They were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor,
Ignorant to include "persecuted minorities"
Like the Jews. My true views were not
Widely known so I needed to keep them unknown,
Until after I became my nation's leader.

I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody
Could have easily found out what I really
Believed, if they had simply read my writings
And examined those people I associated with.

I'm glad they didn't. Then, I became the
Most powerful man in the world. And the world
Learned the truth.

Who am I?

I am Adolf Hitler.

Is that who you were thinking of?

Riiiiiight....

And So It REALLY Begins....

For the chairman and chief executive of Murray Energy, an Ohio-based coal company, the reelection of President Obama was no cause for celebration. It was a time for prayer – and layoffs.

Robert E. Murray read a prayer to a group of company staff members on the day after the election, lamenting the direction of the country and asking: “Lord, please forgive me and anyone with me in Murray Energy Corp. for the decisions that we are now forced to make to preserve the very existence of any of the enterprises that you have helped us build.”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/after-obama-re-election-ceo-reads-prayer-to-staff-announces-layoffs/2012/11/09/e9bca204-2a63-11e2-bab2-eda299503684_story.html

And just why is this heartless CEO laying off 156 of his employees?

He owns coal mines. Coal mines provide coal to our coal-fired electrical power plants.

Lisa Jackson, that mad woman at the EPA that has already forced the shutdown of over 40 of our coal-fired plants, now has the clearance (with the blessings of re-elected idiot-savant*  president Obama)  to shut down a whole lot more, at least 57 more in 2012, and a 175 more by 2115.

http://www.naturalnews.com/036672_coal-fired_power_plants_shut_down_EPA.html

It's now a done deal. These plants are going away. And what is Obama and Jackson replacing them with?

A few unbelievably expensive solar farms - planned, but not yet built - that will not produce 1/100th of the power they are eliminating. Solar panels that work only in sunlight, power generators that will not store any energy in batteries for nighttime use, because batteries are TOXIC.

If that ain't enough, the greenies have successfully blocked the construction of the power lines needed to deliver this solar energy to where it is needed.


Look at the above pie chart. By 2105, the blue slice of that will be GONE. 44.9% eliminated by Obama,  Lisa Jackson and her EPA loonies.  I have no idea where these lunatics learned their math, but 44.9% is almost half of the Nations energy supply. But be of good cheer, they expect renewables to have doubled their output by then.  Lets see, double of 3.6 is a massive, crisis-saving 7.2%. Obama and Jackson seem to think that 7.2% is pretty close to half of anything.

Whoopie.

I told you these people are crazy. Problem is, we will have to pay the price for their insanity.

Remember, I told you that the big cities would be first in line for that surviving 55.1% electrical power. That's the blue States. If you live in a red State, too damned bad.  Learn to live in the dark, because Lisa Jackson, Obama, and all their green buddies do not give a tinker's damn what happens to you.They just don't need you.

And as long as they are in power, they will never need you.

*He's a great talker.

TEXAS ALERT!


George Prescott Garnica(five O'clock shadow) Bush


Garnica?


Texans beware!

George P. Bush has filed the paperwork necessary for a bid for office in Texas, the latest sign the rising GOP star will run for something next year.

The Hispanic son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) is a Texas-based GOP consultant and heads the Hispanic Republicans of Texas.
 and on top of his family connections is known as a compelling speaker and savvy campaign strategist.

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/other-races/267015-george-p-bush-eyes-campaign-in-texas

Another Bush has his eyes on messing us all up even more than George H.W.  and George W. did, both of whom did their individual best to turn America over to the NWO.

Prescott Garnica may not think so, but any objective viewer will realise he is just another coattail rider with nothing to offer but his name and his "family connections", which - before all this is over - may quality him for a  much needed tar-and-feathering.

"He's been viewed as a rising star in Texas Republican politics..."
 
Really? Says who? A few of those entrenched RINO elitists still clinging to power?

This guy, if for no other reason than his "family connections", should not be allowed in politics anywhere.

Besides, you must never trust any politician that wears a pink silk tie.

Can You See The Problem?


Apparently, a lot of New Englanders can't - or won't:

Trees and power lines just don't mix.

Seems New Englanders have a real problem. It's not that they can't understand what happens when they lose electrical power, it's why they lose so much of their electrical power.

Until they learn that they cannot allow  trees to grow close enough to power lines to hit them when a big wind blows by, they're going to have more days and weeks just like they're having now.

You gotta wonder how many times they have to go through all this before they learn that electrical power - particularly in winter - is far more important than having those pretty trees in the front yard.

Power poles and transmission lines are designed to take take the load during high winds and storms, but they can't be built to withstand thousands of tress falling on them. They could, but the cost would be impossible.

They already know they can't bury the lines everywhere, they have too too much flooding. So, until they decide to keep the tress clear of the power lines, they will continue to spend freezing nights in dark houses

It has been estimated that over 90 percent of the loss of power to residential areas is caused by falling trees. If there had been no tree damaged power lines suffered in this last storm, it seems reasonable to conclude that 90 percent of these people would not have suffered any power loss, and for those who did, repair crews would have gotten to them much faster.

It's their choice, really.  So don't cry too many tears over their present misfortune, it is - and has always been - avoidable.

Voting Breakdown By Counties

The below red-blue map shows where Obama got his support:

 
The Northeast, Union strongholds in the North Central, the west coast,  borderlands with Mexico, Mexican strongholds in southern California, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado, black strongholds along the Mississippi Valley, Caribbean immigrant strongholds in Eastern Florida.

What will now happen?

Obama's "transformation of the United States of America" will swing into high gear.

Congressional gridlock will continue and become worse. Obama will not - ever -  reach across the aisle. He will instead rule by edict from the White House using executive orders, totally bypassing Congress and the Courts.

The fed will continue to print massive amounts of paper money, and will continue even as the dollar slowly turns into toilet paper. 

Lisa Jackson of the EPA will continue to close our coal-fired electrical plants, replacing them with nothing. And - as Obama promised - prices of electricity will skyrocket.

Secretary of State Clinton's agreement with the UN to ban guns worldwide will become law.

Businesses will continue their exodus out of the nation.

We will not - under any possbile scenario - become energy independent.

Israel will attack Iran and receive little to no willing support from Obama.

Total amnesty will become a reality for each and every illegal in the nation.

These are not predictions, since these events are all already in full swing. 

Enjoy the ride because you can't get off. But remember: You'll have to pay for it when it stops.

Yay! A "B" Size Printer I Can Afford


 
Having used drawing programs for a large part of my working life, now that I'm retired I'm still doing lots of drawings, both architectural and engineering, but constantly face the problem of having a decent sized printout.

I have a Hewlett Packard 7585B  8 pin A-E plotter stuffed away in the garage, but it's as ancient as I am, and finding the ink pens for it is just about impossible. I don't think my Autocad 2013 package (a fabulous Christmas present from my son) even has  drivers for it, and I haven't been able to find information on how to modify the cabling to adapt it to the newer computers. So it's basically a boat anchor I haven't got the heart to toss out.

Most modern ink jet printers can  print both letter(8.5 x 11) and legal(8.5 x 14) sized documents, but they are just not, well, professional enough looking for either architectural or engineering drawings.

But B sized? Totally acceptable.

Problem up to now is that any unit that could handle B sized paper(11 x 17) was/is out of my justifiable price range.  True,  just like any other credit-card-carrying American, I could whip out the plastic and buy any fancy new plotter or printer on the market... if I lost my marbles and wanted to pay for it for the next ten years.

A local business retail outlet store that sells all manner of printers decided their stock of B size printers were not popular and not moving, so they decided to shove them out the door at fabulously low prices. I walked in at just the right time and became the owner of a  major brand name printer that has the affordability I need with the quality required to be professionally acceptable.

I even got a 36-month total coverage insurance policy for repair or replacement in the deal for about a dollar a month.

Now I need to get busy and do something "professional".  My other blog, THE IRON HORSE (http://theironhorse.blogspot.com/),  has some of the drawings I've been working on.

Bill Mahar: Idiocy On Parade

"Wow... Did I really say that?"


Bill Mahar just made the most idiotic statement of his career:

If you're thinking about voting for Mitt Romney, I would like to make this one plea: black people know who you are and they will come after you.


Read more: http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppard/2012/11/03/maher-if-you-vote-romney-black-people-know-who-you-are-and-will-come#ixzz2BFlnc23n

That's not a  "plea". That's not a joke. That's a threat.

It's a truly disgusting comment from a big-city liberal firmly anchored in his own misconceptions.

Mr. Mahar needs to address reality for just a few moments so he can get his head straight.

Most blacks, just like any other human being in America, would never dream of such an insanity... to assault a man in his home because of his vote.

Secondly, if some fool wants to come to where I live with intentions of harm to me or mine because of the way I vote, there's going to be a dead fool that needs picking up on the sidewalk. Anybody wanting to mess up my life because of the way I vote has some real problems to contend with.  Color and race have nothing to do with it... only stupidity.

I generally pay no attention to the likes of Mahar, but this most recent racist comment by him is over the top and way over the line. The man should have more sense.

But then again, maybe he's not nearly as smart as we - and he - thinks he is.

Vote... But For What?



Almost time to vote.

What will we be voting for? Less taxes?  Less debt? Less government? Less war?  Better medical coverage? Better schools?  Honest government?

Or more to the point, what do we think we will be voting for?

LESS TAXES?
Not a chance. Anyone with a functional brain realizes both candidates will have to raise taxes, regardless of claims to the contrary. That, or be the sitting president when the nation goes bankrupt.

LESS DEBT?
No way. The government will collapse overnight if it quits borrowing more money. We are in a death spiral of debt with no foreseeable way out.

LESS GOVERNMENT?
Not a chance in hell. The Progressive and Socialists now in power - people who believe in an all-powerful government that is all things to all people - will continue their relentless push to larger and larger government.

LESS WAR?
That's a non-starter. Both presidential candidates fully understand that the military-industrial complex is the only healthy and fully-funded industry in the United States. Way too many of the rich and powerful make their millions from this source, and only war - declared or not - can justify the  cost. When Romney says he will refund the military, he's telling the truth, but he is really talking of refunding the military-industrial complex. When Obama says he will reduce the military, he is lying. He will not be allowed to do such a ting.

BETTER MEDICAL COVERAGE?
Nope. Our medical system has reached its peak and will begin declining faster every day. Those in the medical industry have made care so expensive that individuals cannot possibly afford decent care on their own. They must have insurance or government assistance for even the smallest of medical emergencies. But - more and more - employers are dropping medical coverage from their benefits packages because of high cost, while the government is trimming back every aspect of its Medicare coverage. Doctors nationwide are increasingly refusing to take on any more medicare patients because there's not enough money in it.

BETTER SCHOOLS?
Get serious. No country on earth has spent more money on its school system. Our school problem is not money. It is the teachers, the professors and the administrators who do not believe in the America our parents knew. They are the totally conditioned cretins who have been promoting ideas like "There are no winners and no losers. Everybody gets a medal just for showing up". They do not believe in individual excellence or achievement. To them, our children are just a herd of bodies that need guidance and help from birth to death. And ask any one of them... They truly believe they are the ones to do all that guiding.

If there is any one thing this nation needs to do, it is to rid itself of all those misguided and brainwashed pawns.

HONEST GOVERNMENT?
One election, or the replacing of a few politicians in one election will not even begin to accomplish that. It will take years - if not decades - to do that with the ballot box.

So, when you go vote, what is it you are hoping to accomplish? Your vote  does not matter to those in charge of everything, because whoever is on that ballot is already a part of scheme. They are already bought and paid for.

Sadly, those who would actually make a difference in government will never be on any ballet anywhere, because they will not have received the money and support necessary to win.

There will be millions voting for more handouts and government freebies, even if we as a nation can no longer afford any of them.

This is the inescapable trap our politicians have built for themselves by buying the votes for decades with handouts and government largess...  rather than intelligent and responsible government service.

No matter how you vote - or don't vote - this all ends soon.

Who is the president - Democrat or Republican - when we go over the cliff won't matter to anyone but the historians.

The numbers just don't lie. There is no way be can pay off our national debt, a debt scheduled to increase by a trillion dollars every year for the foreseeable future.

When our government can no longer borrow a penny from anywhere and when the Fed finally prints so much of its money(federal reserve notes) that it becomes worthless,  the axe will fall. This will happen in months, not years.

Get prepared. It will be quite a ride.

Starvation...


Marie Antoinette. Overly fond of cake.
Not too smart with public relations.

The residents of Staten Island are pleading for help from elected officials, begging for gasoline, food and clothing three days after Sandy slammed the New York City borough.

“We’re going to die! We’re going to freeze! We got 90-year-old people!” Donna Solli told visiting officials. “You don’t understand. You gotta get your trucks down here on the corner now. It’s been three days!”
 


Three days. Only three days.

Staten Island was one of the hardest-hit communities in New York City. More than 80,000 residents are still without power. Many are homeless, and at least 19 people died on Staten Island because of the storm.

A desperate man with a starving family will kill for a can of beans.

Most people do not believe that. Most people think we are far too civilized to revert to such conduct.

But most people are wrong.

What triggered the French revolution? It wasn't politics. It wasn't differences between political parties. It was hunger.

When  Josephe Jeanne Marie Antoinette von Habsburg-Lorraine  was told the French people were starving and had no bread, she replied with the infamous comment that doomed her, her extravagant  husband King Louis XIV , and all of France's  privileged elite... "Well, then, let them eat cake".

Hunger is a more powerful motivator than any fancy speech Obama or Romney can dredge up. And in an area as influential as the Northeast United States, hunger can change everything, even as the rest of us sit by, helplessly watching events unfold.




The Union Is For The People

Sure they are.

 SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY  (WAFF)

The hurricane-ravaged east coast has been receiving north Alabama help, but crews from Huntsville Utilities learned they'll be doing work in Long Island, New York instead of in New Jersey.Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.
 

Non Union? You're not wanted... get lost.


Those folks that once lived in Seaside Heights just might have an issue with this decision to refuse help from trained crews with the right equipment - sent in from another State at no cost to them - to help get their electrical power back up and running.

Maybe the next time New Jersey citizens start crying for help, those who stand ready to send help should check and see if they are considered as "acceptable" to New Jersey's union overlords.

Since when can beggars be choosers? When did that rule change?

And So It Begins

Starving New Yorkers dumpster-diving for food:



 http://www.nbcnewyork.com/video/#!/on-air/as-seen-on/Sandy-Starved-New-Yorkers-Dumpster-Dive/176839571

Lines miles long for gasoline:


http://money.cnn.com/2012/11/01/news/economy/gas-stations-supply-sandy/

The government cannot possibly provide the basic needs for a city the size of New York. The bottom line is that these people were warned, ignored the warnings, did not prepare, and are now paying the price.

Some sensible steps to take:

Have a least a weeks worth of food and water in your pantry. Rotate it. Store what you  eat, eat what you store. A container of Mountain House freeze-dried entrees( they can last up to 25 years) and a  couple cases of bottled water can save your life.

It goes without saying that food that needs refrigeration or freezing won't work. Canned, bottled, freeze-dried, dehydrated or vacuum packed is the stuff you need to stock up.

The chances of water and sewage service stopping is very high, so get one of those five-gallon plastic buckets with a potty lid on it, the kind you put plastic garbage bags in.  Store it in your closet.

A porta-potty kit like this can save your sanity

When the plastic bag starts filling up, replace it and toss the smelly one.  This lack of this one item can make your emergency experience miserable beyond words.

It doesn't take much to be prepared. but it does take a bit of effort.

People who are truly prepared often go far beyond these basics. They have generators, weapons, fuel, medical supplies, bedding and clothing, but what is needed to survive a weeks worth of shortage is just not that much.

So just go do it. None of us cen predict when we'll need it. Maybe never, but having it stored away sure as hell beats dumpster diving.




The March Of The Lemmings


Election day is arriving. Millions of  Americans, dual-citizened aliens and outright illegal aliens will vote for the next president and Congress.

Maybe you have looked over voter guides, studied fact sheets and read articles showing both sides of everything.

Good for you.

But, here's the scary part about a big bunch of those other voters:

-1) Only two out of five can name the three branches of government.
-2) Only one in seven can find Iraq on a map.
-3) Very few can even name their Congressional representative.
-4) Most do not know the difference between a Democracy and a Republic.
-5) Most have no clue as to what the 2nd amendment is or provides.
-6) Many are not even American citizens.

The once held belief that everyone in the population needed to understand the most complex problems in order to make a decision on how to vote is long gone.

Based on a theory sometimes known as the “miracle of aggregation”, the idea now is that a large group of voters can make decisions rooted in ignorance without causing undue damage... provided there is even a small minority that can make well-informed decisions. The bulk of these ignorant and/or uneducated voters will behave in a way that is almost random and thus cancel each other out at the ballot box. The few that are informed or knowledgeable enough will then swing the balance.  This may work pretty well in most parts of life. The audience of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” is right 91% of the time, for example.

Problem is... This uninformed group of voters no longer vote randomly. They are easily swayed one way or another by opinionated notables that generally have a private axe to grind.

The Progressives and the socialists  have learned this lesson well and have infiltrated and taken over the Democratic party as their base of operations. They have  welcomed into this "new" Democratic party all manner of splinter groups... the Feminists, the Greens, the LGBT crowd, the unions, the angry and "oppressed" minorities, the army of invading illegals,  all adding their voices and their votes to one side only, all interested in gaining advantage for their particular group and to hell with everybody else. As a result, this "miracle of aggregation" that once balanced out the effects of the uneducated and ignorant in our voting booths no longer works.

That is how a Marxist like Obama won the White House, bringing with him Communist and Marxist sympathizers like Van Jones, Valerie Jarret,  David Axelrod and a host of other anti-American radicals bent on changing this nation into something most Americans will not recognize. They have mastered the art of leading the lemmings. Over the decades, they have infiltrated our schools, colleges and universities and successfully created a huge block of supposedly educated lemmings that in reality react predictably and unthinkingly to every poke and prod.

Will this huge block of lemming-like voters allow Obama and his radicals to  keep the White house and finish their transformation of America into a socialist nation controlled by the unelected power brokers of Europe?

We'll know in just a few more days.
