My 1,300th post.
Coming Soon to a Country near You: The End
First you start years ago with the stupefying of the populace.
You have to have sheep before you can sheer them.
In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act. -Orwell
If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear. -Orwell
And after the success of the “Vote for Me, The Other Guy’s an Asshole” re-election Campaign (and the Ignore everything- isn’t he Charismatic 2008 election) the populace is ready for that step.
Congress is gone around by regulations.
$7 Trillion in New debt in 5 years. AND they want to spend even More!!
And that’s ok because the people are so drugged up on the Government money, and the government is so drugged up ON the money that no one wants the party to end and be responsible adults.
7.8%+ unemployment for more than 4 years and no one is held accountable for it.
Your basic freedoms are rendered effectively worthless.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face, forever.-Orwell
Political Correctness has effectively killed the First Amendment. Unless you like being called a Racist, Heartless,Mean, Cruel, Greed Homophobic,misogynist capitalist terrorist that is. 🙂
“Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you.”
“Nearly all children nowadays were horrible. What was worst of all was that by means of such organizations as the Spies they were systematically turned into ungovernable little savages, and yet this produced in them no tendency whatever to rebel against the discipline of the Party. On the contrary, they adored the Party and everything connected with it… All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children.” “Thoughtcrime does not entail death: thoughtcrime is death.”
The Party is not interested in the overt act. The thought is all we care about.-Orwell
You have a totally complaint Media.They way they swept Benghazi under the carpet is evidence of that. And how they have selective Agenda-driven outrage.
At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to state this or that or the other, but it is “not done”… Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the highbrow periodicals.- Orwell
In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.-Orwell
Educate them in the Liberal way. It’s only “fair”.
Emotion overrides logic.
Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.-Orwell
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
How hallow is that these days?
Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidarity to pure wind. -Orwell
The Second Amendment is effectively gone. If you support it, you obviously support terrorists and gun-toting psychos who likes/wants to kill children. People should not have guns.
Only Government should have guns. 🙂
The logical fact that criminals don’t get guns in the normal way that you and I would, means nothing.
President Obama: “battle for gun-control will not end”
And background checks can just be another tool for the government to nose around and make decisions about you on their terms (and the fact that there are background checks ALREADY on everything except a private person-to-person sale is not relevant to the Agenda.)
Perception is everything. Perception of Thought, doubly so.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
But the government can read your Emails. They can use drones. They can bug your car. After all, if you’re not a terrorist or a subversive what do you have to hide sheepie. Baaaaaa….
The U.S. government — and likely your own government, for that matter — is either watching your online activity every minute of the day through automated methods and non-human eavesdropping techniques, or has the ability to dip in as and when it deems necessary — sometimes with a warrant, sometimes without.
The Obama Administration is headed to court today to argue that warrantless GPS tracking is just fine.
The administration will present its arguments before a federal appeals court today, despite the U.S. Supreme Court last year ruling that a warrant was needed to attach a GPS device to a suspected criminal’s vehicle. (CNET)
CISPA is controversial because it overrules all existing federal and state laws by saying “notwithstanding any other provision of law,” including privacy policies and wiretap laws, companies may share cybersecurity-related information “with any other entity, including the federal government.” It would not, however, require them to do so.
Like they care what the courts say, really…
What the Congress won’t do, Obama will get the regulators to do. It’s not like Liberals give up the Agenda just because some Court or Law says they can’t do it.
Being able to control everyone from before birth to after death!
Now comes the coup de grace: “Immigration Reform”.
The liberals have no intention of “securing” the border. Absolutely none.
They want to have these illegals (and future ones too) made legal.
Then they can vote.
Add 10-15 million new Democrats and you have Cuba/North Korea/Venezuela etc here.
The self-perpetuating election of Liberal Democrats, no matter what you do. They just pander to their new majority base and self-perpetuate themselves and steamroll over everyone and anything that gets in their way.
And they only really need 1 more Justice on the Supreme Court and they have that too.
Come on, Obama isn’t still in Campaign Mode even though he’s not able to run again because that’s all he’s good at (which it is).
No, he wants to crush the Republicans in 2014 and then hand off the Glorious Socialist States of Amerika to President Hilary Clinton and her successors in 2016.
He’s looking for a successor, just like Kim il Sung did when he “created” North Korea. Or Castro’s Cuba, or Chavez in Venezuela.
Create a Legacy. Be the Father of a new Nation.
The New George Washington. (and he’s black instead of an evil White bastard is appropriate).
They want absolutely incontestable rule.
Where will your Freedoms lie then, Citizen?
In the trash heap of “the old days”, that’s where.
The fat,dumb and happy to be ignorant will have inherited the country in perpetuity.
The Founding Fathers will be those quaint rebels who just got it all wrong and it took over 200 years to get it right.
“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?… Has it ever occurred to your, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?…The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.” – Syme
“It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face… was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime…”
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Legislation giving states the power to compel retailers outside their borders to collect online sales taxes, a touchy subject for Internet merchants, is likely to move forward in the Senate next week. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Thursday filed a motion in support of the measure.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
How quaint. How old fashioned. How racist. How mean. How evil.
“Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.”
WAR (0n the wrong thoughts) IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH
FEAR IS HOPE
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
So do you see 3 lights or 4 lights, Citizen? And does it matter?? 🙂
