Designated Survivor… while a promising and
interesting premise, it has turned unto predictable crappy PeeCee nauseating
liberal mush. What makes it worse is that it’s no surprise. Rich and privileged Hollywood these days...
much prefers to preach and lecture us on our (perceived by them) “shortcomings”
than to actually entertain. It IMHO will be their undoing.
“From each according
to their ability” (you DON’T OWN what you produce)… “Too each according to
their needs” (you DON’T get to decide that. Your “needs” and that of your
family is done at the Government “Central Needs Determination Office”)…
Mid-year 2017 (and thereafter): In President Hillary's perfect "progressive" world, and with Global Warming (Climate
Change on cold days) "crisis" looming (it gonna happen any day now, PROMISE!)... quick action to “save” the planet has been
instituted in her first 100 days. As we all want to help “solve”
this “crisis” (only world socialism will work!!!), we now are required by law to use monthly
ration coupons (after we wait in line for several hours to get them at the Government Central
Allocations Office). ALL aspects of
daily life are now licensed, permitted, regulated, rationed and most important
taxed! (lest we damage the planet!). After waiting in line at the Central Allocations Office to receive our
ration coupons, we get to wait in a long line again at one of the Government Distribution
Centers… there we must present the appropriate coupon for our “fair share” (sure hope some is available!) of
food, fuel, medicine, our monthly ration of toilet paper and other essentials
as well as our monthly allocation of internet access, most required to be used to read "Dear Leader" Hillary's comments at government approved websites.
Historical Note: the 2nd Amendment is still in the
Constitution… but after President Obama’s last day on office executive order nationalizing all gun/ammo manufacturers (upheld by SCOTUS
5-4, newly appointed Justice Bernie Sanders cast the deciding vote), you must now register all firearms, pay a fee, high liability insurance
and then apply for your “ammo permit and ration”… which after paying the fee, has
a 20 year “waiting period”… and applications have a tendency to “get lost”,
then you must re-apply and re-pay… go figure.
A day in the life: After returning with your meager rations to your government approved housing (800
square feet for a family of four)… you
receive a call from the MisAllocation of Resources Department… a “friendly” (but
stern) voice informs you that your family exceeded its rationed number of
toilet flushes for the month… which is 50 flushes, but the government required sensor in the
bathroom detected 62. You explain that a
stomach bug infected the family, necessitating the additional flushes. The “friendly”
(but stern) voice is understanding that "such things happen", and politely explains your
options: you can agree to cut flushes by three for the next four months… or you
can pay the fine and/or do the required community service for exceeding your
You have a family event
coming up and want to plan a party… so
you use a few of your internet access hours to seek a party permit allowing additional
food, drink and toilet flushes. After filling out the online from with “proper
justification” a small fee is charged…your party is in two weeks, hopefully the
permit will be issued by then, and food will be available. Also, while on the website, you fill another application to
get a vacation license for next year and get on the waiting list (currently six months) for accommodations
at the beach… you hope a room will be available before your scheduled dates… a
small fee is charged. sadly, your momma, still
full of life and vigor gets seriously ill and due to her age (80) she is no
longer receiving healthcare coupons for medicine and hospital time (there’s critical
shortage of doctors as most have left practice or the country)… but the “merciful”
District Medicine Czar does offer her a “pill”.
President Hillary's perfect world… Socialist Utopia… where all though miserable... it's “fair” and “equal” and the Earth is saved.
Notes: “Dear Leaders” are exempt from the rules outlined above… “all
animals are equal, but (socialist) pigs are more equal”.
Milton Friedman once observed… “an ant hill and/or bee hive is the perfect socialist society. The survival of the nest is prime; the individual (even the queen) lives totally for the benefit of the whole… and all ‘citizens’ of the nest are expendable”.
In spite of dozens of failed attempts it just doesn’t work well for humans. We humans are individuals… and seek our own freedom and prosperity. For socialism to “work’ there can be NO individuality, not even among the leaders (the “Catch 22” of the matter IMHO). Sadly there’s just not enough totally selfless “Mother Teresas” to go around… those willing (like ants/bees) to labor and produce society’s necessary goods and services for little or no compensation (other than the subsistence rations, which all “share”)! The “fine print”: Mother Teresa’s selflessness was rooted in a deep faith in Christ… which is generally NOT welcome in socialist thinking. ALL loyalty must be to the STATE with “no other gods before it”! The (Judeo) Christian’s first loyalty is to God and His Commandments… which means the Christian is always potentially at odds with the “sacred state”… thus any Judeo-Christian influence must be minimized and better yet, eliminated.
In the Muslim religion, Allah and state are one in the same, with NO variations permitted! This (IMHO) explains the strange affection socialists (aka: liberals, “progressives”) have for Islam… as both desire to crush any opposition or even questioning of the “Caliphate”… ALL must kneel and worship at the altar of the “collective”.
Most important, God is to be replaced by the “Dear Leader(s)”. Hava good day!
To paraphrase Newsweek after Obama's election is 2008... with slight updates for 2016:
"We're ALL Russian agents now!"
WARNING! RedneckoBlogger opines!
Media and Liberals are in apoplexy at Trump’s speech. This
shows they do indeed occupy an alternate universe from real working folks…
Trump’s strongest base! Liberals always
sell fear of the ABSTRACT, while NEVER recognizing and often denying the fear
of the REAL. If you fear the real threat of an ISIS nut yelling “Allahu Akbar”
while shooting down gays or driving a truck through a crowd, you’re a
“bigot”! If you fear an attack by an
illegal immigrant felon on his 10th return from deportation, you’re a “hater”. BUT… If you fear the abstract nonsense that
Donald Trump will put you in a concentration camp or we're going back to
lynching, child labor, back alley abortions and segregation… then you’re a
Liberal!!! Hysteria at things long promised
but yet to happen (no ice at the poles… rising sea levels drowning cities, etc)
is their constant tired worn out old creed. Creative ideas to actually help the
middle class are dismissed as “unworkable” and denial of real threats have
become their insanity norm. It has been observed "Progress is NOT possible
with 'progressives' in charge!!!
Trump mentioned longtime Democrat machine run heavy “gun
control” inner cities in his speech. That
they are poverty and gang ridden free fire zones, that liberals seem to care
little about (other than the votes)! Liberals
also BLAME only in the abstract (“it was a video”, “it was the gun”)… NEVER the
perpetrator! (He/she/it might be a Democrat voter!)… so it’s always the gun to
blame (abstract) never the finger that pulls the trigger (real)!
This abstract mindset allows rich liberals to fly around the
world in luxury private jets that burn more fuel in an hour that your SUV in a
year… all the while complaining about “fossil fuels” and attending “Global
Warming” summits at expensive and exclusive resorts! I must ask… why should I fear this “Climate
Change” if they, by their actions, clearly do not?
Trump says he represents the “forgotten”… those of us our
liberal “betters” want to dismiss as “bigots” and forget! But the reality of the
liberal insular Pollyanna world is broken daily by REAL dangers and events! Yet
their scab of denial of the REAL in favor of the ABSTRACT only becomes thicker
with each of these grim realities!
P.S. Interesting article on Trump's speech...
after another Islamist massacre of helpless Americans...
Trump…(with some trepidation this is posted)
Sir, if you
are chosen to “make America great again”, understand it is a divine mission
from God, much larger than yourself, your ego, your image or any business
you’ve ever conducted!
I don’t know
if you are a Godly man, a conservative, a huckster, a tyrant or our next
president… but you have lit the fire of real hope (not the phony Obama kind)
among many in America who in deep frustration, no longer feel represented by
those we elect (Dem or GOP). I don’t know if you’re the best vehicle (I was Cruz person myself), but your rapid rise and primary victory has given notice and scared the
hell out of our “ruling cartel” in politics and media… informing them that they
sit atop a rumbling volcano… that can and will erupt in their faces if things
don’t change and true rule of law, rights of the citizens and the Constitution
It is sadly
becoming more obvious each day we now live in an oligarchy as our (former?)
republic fades into history. The ruling (self-appointed) “elite” (nationally
and locally) with a mindset of royalty, decrees thousands of laws/rules for we
“ordinaries”… that they themselves see NO obligation to obey! The callous
disregard for law we see in Hillary’s e-mails, Obama’s executive orders, the
ignoring of the IRS attacks upon citizen groups, Congress’ exemption from
Obamacare and most other laws as well… and politicized courts routinely
overturning legal state elections such as those on marriage definitions and
illegal immigration. Those voted on and approved by popular vote of the citizenry
(like Prop 187 in California, etc.) are just cast aside... by arrogant black
robed despots! This daily assault on our liberty shows the callous disregard of
“we the people” by those who now desire to RULE over us… not govern with our
consent. I feel modern government is little more than a Chicago gangster
"protection racket" who demand their blood payment or they hurt you.
Our valued traditions and beliefs routinely mocked, ridiculed and often
prohibited as to not "offend" anyone (but us). We are told daily ALL
we do is WRONG... what we eat, what we drive, how we worship, how we think...
and how living a middle class life is "destroying" the Earth (by
those who claim to "care" for
the middle class). They demand we surrender our freedom and prosperity and submit
to every aspect of our lives being regulated, taxed, permitted, supervised,
licensed, rationed and controlled by tyrannical faceless hyper-bureaucrat
nannies as if we are little more than human livestock... unable to manage our
own lives. We also know those laying these burdens upon us exempt themselves
from any sacrifices demanded of us! Such is oligarchy.
"elite" (both GOPe and Dems) no longer see themselves as “servants of
the citizens”, but as our “masters” or even our “owners”. Many (me included)
are not sure our votes even count anymore... with the billionaire tech giants
(Gates, Google, etc) all part of this new oligarchy (are you too?)… are our
"votes" computer counted or are they just computer generated by
algorithms that guarantee a pre-determined outcome?
I’m sure you
know this, but some don’t… the concept of “servant king” is purely of
Judeo-Christian origin… in other societies (then and now) the King, Pharaoh,
Czar and Caesar (Obama?) were worshiped as Gods... the people under them little
more than their property. But in the Holy Bible in ancient Israel, they were
first and foremost servants of the people, answerable to God. No greater
example than Jesus humbly washing the feet of His disciples. Our Constitution
is based on the “servant leader” foundation. I close also with a warning...
Barack Obama was a blank canvas... encouraged by compliant lapdog media, people
made him what they wanted him to be... not the despot he turned out to be. The
media will not cover for you as they did for him, but people longing for real
leadership can make the same mistake, so Mr. Trump... let us know who you are
and your policies to "make America great again". Unlike our “ruling cartel” that conducts business
in the dark, you do not have to "pass this letter" to know what’s in it... but
first please... understand that "to make America great again" you (we)
must start with 2 Chronicles 7:14, and you must lead by this example and humble
yourself before the Lord. Only then can you lead America back to greatness!
you sir on your divine mission…
