Category Archives: OWS
I was watching Bill Maher last night and he was going on about how OWS seems to be letting up in New York; perhaps because of the cold; and he made the statement that those left seem to be
those who want to break windows etc.
He feels that the time has come for OWS to go home and try to effect change through the current political system.
But….but….but…..BUT ; I checked the channel; made sure I was wearing my glasses; then just sat there with my teeth in my mouth. I was astonished; flabbergasted; taken aback even. I was aghast; astounded; discombobulated.
I sat and I thought and I sat some more and after about two minutes; I realized why Bill Maher; well known Liberal Humorist said……………………..those words I mentioned before……..I won’t say them again as the less print alotted to them; the better but if you want to know what I think; hit the “Sellout” button…………………………………………………………
If you read the previous installment of this article, you will recall that rather than give us a system where the State Legislatures elected the President which would have been a straight-forward system at least; where the people would be fully aware of their extremely limited influence on the choice of a President; they chose instead to give us a system where the people are encouraged to vote but where the actual choice is made by a group of virtually unknown and unknowable voters called Electors.
A system that pretends to give power to the people but reserves the right to counteract the peoples choice if they wish………………………………….
The most amazing thing to me is that when the cops found literature from the “Constitutional Society” including a copy of that most dangerous document to cops like these and their Fascist Masters;………………..The United States Constituion.
After illegally dragging her out of the car and handcuffed her then illegally rooting through her vehicle and personal items; the Cop looks at the material, tries to decide if he should confiscate it, and then states that he isn’t sure if it is illegal to have.
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material.
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material?
He thinks she might be allowed to read the material!
I sat for a long time trying to decide just what I could write about Christmas that wouldn’t sound phony and cliché With the Economy as it is and our Politics where they are and with me always telling everyone to expect a Fascist takeover of our government; I wasn’t sue what i could say that would sound sincere.
I didn’t want to be one of those guys who isn’t able to put down his sword long enough to talk about something more positive for the Holiday and come here with my usual angry criticism and drag everyone down.
I also didn’t want to be a hypocrite by wishing a Merry Christmas to people for whom I have no respect and believe to be Evil and who I am sure do not wish me a Merry anything.
So; a real puzzler; but then I remembered that I had read an article about a Christmas event that happened some time ago and it occurred to me that perhaps I could write a Christmas wish that I could feel good about; and maybe you can too.
So here we go. Imagine that is cold. So cold that you can’t feel your fingers. Snow is falling steadily but slowly and in the distance; the sounds of singing wafts over the frozen ground and now and then you hear the sound of………………………..
Crime. Americans are afraid of crime. As a matter of fact Americans are afraid of the mere possibility of crime. And why not?
For years they have been told about the dangers of everything from Jay-walking to Marijuana; from Mugging to Heroin. They have been inundated with reports and videos and rumors of crime. Pictures make it all the more real and immediate.
But the truth is that many millions of Americans go out every day. In cars; on foot; on buses and in cabs. They go to school, work, and just for a walk. Most; the vast majority of those people do this every day and are never the victims of crime especially violent crime.
There is a higher likelyhood that you will be the victim of crime if you: a) Live in a high crime area; mostly urban areas but not all urban areas. b) Travel in such areas regularly. c) Are involved in crime yourself. Or d) Run naked into a known criminal hangout wearing only precious stones and a Visa card and singing “Rape Me”. Other than that; your odds are pretty good.
But I am here to tell you that “Crime”, is indeed, everywhere. And we are responsible. So if crime is everywhere; how can I say that it’s pretty safe to walk the streets in most places?
Because the crime taking place in most neigborhoods isn’t violent; it isn’t infringing on anyones rights and it doesn’t hurt anyone but the participants if it even harms them. It may be gambling, Marijuana or other drugs, prostitution, or it could be the guy down the block who found a way to download copyrighted music or video.
So what is the truth? What should we do about all of this crime and all these criminals?…………………….
Remember when you were a child and your mom said if you ran into a big scary dog; stand still and be silent and hopefully he will go on by? Well dogs being basically non-viscious creatures; it probably worked.
But sometimes; like when a serial killer bent on your demise or enslavement attacks; your silence will not protect you. Your silence will get you DEAD. So why do I bring this up? Do I have an inside source with knowledge of future serial killer attack points? Mmmmmmm……………..could be. I guess you’ll just have to hit the “read more” button to find out the frightening yet true answer……………………………………………..
