Champagne socialism... Limousine and Private Jet Liberals?

Bernie Sanders (champion of the "downtrodden", the climate, wannabe punisher of the successful and "free stuff" Santa Claus) charted a Boeing 767 jet for his overnight trip to Rome to see fellow socialist Pope Francis. According to the Daily Mail... that requires approx 33,192 gallons of fuel for the round trip. 50 or so passengers made the trip with Bern (767 capacity is 250 or so).

Comparison to me: calculations of driving patterns based on my two vehicles (one a dreaded eeeveel SUV!), my wife and I "Bern" about 25 gallons of fuel a week. Based on our total fuel use, my wife and I must drive near 25 YEARS to use as much gas as the Bern did on his flight...or... if you calculate using passenger miles (33,192/50 = 663.84 gallons per person)... we must drive six months to equal fuel consumed by each passenger on Bernie’s trip. How much CO2 does 33, 192 gallons of jet fuel add to the air in 16 hours of flight time? (lots)?   One asks… do those who demand we surrender our liberty and prosperity to "save the Earth"... even believe it themselves? Does Bernie's Rome trip (and apparent disregard for CO2) make him a tacit "denier" of "Global Warming"? (aka: Climate change on cold days).  This is addition to many Global Warming (Climate change on cold days) activist who flew private jets to the Paris "Climate Change" summit recently (do as I say, not as I do)... to stay in luxury resorts while they demand we “ordinaries” reduce our lifestyles too little than a top-down, “trickle down” rationed subsistence. 

Which brings up this observation: Liberals in a way can’t be hypocrites… as to them hypocrisy is just another tool in their toolbox to advance their agenda of tyranny. They also know the media will cover up for them. Same is with “truth”… to (misnamed) “progressives” ANYTHING that advances the agenda is “truth”. So Hillary/Bernie/Obama and all of them can say one thing one minute and the EXACT OPPOSITE the next minute and if their agenda is advanced BOTH statements are “true”!

We can't Deport 11 Million Illegals... ("Progressive" policy of surrender and failure).



With all (misnamed) “progressives” surrender and failure actually seems to be the preferred policy, be it illegal immigration (we can’t deport the millions deliberately let in), war (why do they hate us?) or economy (the “new” normal of high unemployment and permanent recession). Way back in 1941, what if FDR argued "we can't dislodge millions of German and Japanese from Europe and Asia... so what's your plan?"
The policy of open borders is not an accident... it was done by the political class to DESTROY the value of American citizenship (its working!). Citizens are forced to buy ObamaCare, illegals get "free" care... we're being invaded by waves of people who see only a "free ride"... because that's what they're promised by (misnamed) "progressives"… they are not in any way encouraged by the liberals to assimilate, learn English or join the American culture (truth is they are DISCOURAGED from doing so!). Law and its enforcement is now "racist" and "bigotry"... but only non-citizens and selected groups (those that create chaos on demand) get such an exemption. So many of our fellow Americans seem to be willing to join the national suicide cult... why?

The Only State Sanctioned Private Sector Violence (Donald Trump was setup... but he shoulda known that)


The nation state historically demands a monopoly on violence and homicide… what’s illegal for the common citizen, is often OK for the government. Wars, executions, police violence against citizens, collection of taxes under threat of prosecution, imprisonment, forced labor and other acts of coercion (aka: laws) are exclusively reserved only for officials of the nation state. In the U.S.A., not since slavery has the private individual been given legal sanction to commit violence against fellow humans… outside of very few exceptions (self-defense… but even that is not universal).  The lone modern example is abortion on demand… as was with slavery, the state has sanctioned private sector and citizen violence/homicide against a class of fellow humans (the yet to be born).  In fact it has become a multi-billion dollar industry, with legions of lawyers/lobbyists/media and a political party to guard against any proposed prohibitions.

So when Donald Trump or any other politician is asked "if abortion ever again becomes illegal, who gets punished?"… he(she) best not answer.  It was of course, a media setup… and Trump ill-advisedly took the bait, giving an honest answer... that things declared illegal when violated, have by definition proscribed punishments (honesty, sadly, is NO LONGER a political virtue).  The woman’s “right to choose” to have her progeny “executed” without trial or appeal is the only current case of private sector state sanctioned violence.  I suspect “mercy” killing of the sick and old could be soon to follow.

21st Century "Wounded Knee" in Oregon???

Study history folks! (Misnamed) "Progressives" are for anything but progress, energy is to be left in the ground, resources to be only available to government officials (and those 1% liberal "royalty" who buy them off?), the "common" people (we "peasants") are to be regulated, licensed, permitted and controlled in near all aspects of our lives. In medieval Europe there was the law of the "Kings Land"...as only the King and those royalty whom he gave permission, were allowed to hunt the game and use the resources of the "Kings Land"". Serfs and peasants (owned by the king) were not allowed to do so (under penalty of death)... also much of their subsistence crops were taxed and confiscated as they lived, if lucky... just above starvation. "Kings Land" appears to have returned with BLM, EPA and the other Federal alphabet agencies of tyranny.

BLM is essentially doing to western ranchers what another Fed agency Bureau of Indian Affairs did in the 19th century to Native-Americans. The Feds being Socialists, want the land, ALL land to be publicly owned (see Agenda 21)... with only a small amount in "reservations" to be ranched and farmed... with gazzions of regulations and restrictions on even that.

The western rancher is to be removed, the open lands to become essentially "museums" (left to "nature") with limited and controlled access. Meat will become rare (pun intended... only for the "rulers"... eating it "harms" the Earth ya know)... we'll live on meager rations... beans, rice and porridge. ALL will be rationed, food, medicine, energy... return to serfdom ahead. The setup and murder of protester LaVoy Finicum (yes it was murder, for the Feds were ready and willing to use deadly force)... and the arrest of the others is just the 21st Century version of the law of the "Kings Land" (IMHO).

God help these champions of liberty... in their "range war" against the tyrants in BLM, EPA and Fed government.  I fear for their lives... for these "peasants" are "violating" the "Law of Kings Land".

Will there be, as was with Ruby Ridge and Waco... Federal mass murder in Oregon? A 21st Century "Wounded Knee"?

"Scientists" and AlGore claim High Levels of CO2 Making People Dumber (But maybe not Dumb Enough)

A coupla links...

http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2015/09/climate-change-aliens-exoplanets

The “problem” (IMHO) is it’s not making people dumb enough! Tons of Bee Ess ideology pretending to be “science” (Global Warming/Climate Change on cold days... or AGW/CC))… is dumped daily into our biosphere… far more damaging to the people of Earth than CO2.  For liberty and prosperity (to be replaced with a rationed subsistence) must be surrendered to central hyper-nanny-bureaucrat authority to “save” the planet! ("dear leaders" exempt... of course)  But in spite of a media full court press, not enough people are dumb enough (yet?) to buy the Global Warming /Climate Change on cold days... (or AGW/CC) narrative.
However AlGore/others,  all is not lost, I will suggest those pushing the ideology pretending to be “science” (AlGore, Jeff Green, Tom Steyer, Ted Turner, liberal politicians, Hollywood, BIG MEDIA, etc.) immediately park their jets (used to fly in luxury to “climate conferences” at exclusive resorts), junk their limos and SUVs, move out of their mansions into tiny houses and lead by example. For if humans living reasonably prosperous lives are really the “enemies of Earth”… AlGore and gang must lead by example! This could restore some of their credibility (slight chance). But if all signs seem to show the advocates of ideology pretending to be “science” live as if they really don’t believe it themselves, why should I or we?  Justathought from a dumb human (as per AlGore).

Bernies and (Hillary’s? and now Bill Gates) Perfect “Progressive” World of “Fairness” and “Equality”…

“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”)…

January 20,  2017 (and thereafter): In Bernie’s (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.  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's" comments at government approved websites. 

Historical Note: the 2nd Amendment is still in the Constitution… but after President Obama’s last executive order nationalizing  all gun/ammo manufacturers (upheld by SCOTUS 5-4), 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… 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 allocations 

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”.   Bernie’s (Hillary's) perfect world… Socialist Utopia… where all though miserable... it's “fair” and “equal”. 
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!
