New Census Numbers Just In

I suppose that with the Whitehouse taking over the census, perhaps Dear Leader can keep his pledge for a 95% tax cut for working families after all. It just doesn't have to be real people we are talking about.  

I am beginning to wonder if everything this guy says is calculated for the maximum effect of nihilism.  I never saw this guy speak until the third debate and then it was a solid dread. So, I asked my pal who went out and bought ten Spiderman Comics if he knew that Obama was going to do this.

I was pretty much as vindicated as I could be.  He hadn't had any more of a clue than the rest of us.  But I reminded him that I told him all along who the guy was and nobody listened.  Thank you.  The amazing thing is, these folks that just recently used to say, over and over, almost in unison, "He couldn't do any worse than what we have already had" in smug and self congratulatory delight, aren't saying that so loudly now.  They just kind of give me that "Dur - buzzkill alert" look.  I can even tell them what is coming next and they just give me that...  

Well, you've probably seen it by now.

Some are starting to get it.  Its starting to sink in.  But I suspect it doesn't feel any better where you are, out there in Virtual land.  I bet you are counting all of your Virtual friends right now and thinking, "Hey, its about time us Virtuals get some of the damn glory for once.  We earned that election for him and ACORN deserves $4.5 billion for getting us Virtuals registered.  I'll bet you are feeling pretty smug sticking it to the stinking Republicans and now you can run off into your Virtual Victory Mandate and see about spending some more virtual cash out of our grand childrens inheritance because, hey, you don't really have to pay back Monopoly Money to the Fed do you?

Where can I sign up for that kind of freedom?

Sure Hope This Chills Me Out Saga.

Some free association follows: 

Let's write Pelosi, Reid and Obama each a trillion dollar check preferably in peso's to get out of D.C.  I may be writing a check on my kids nickel but they would thank me  for it.

Best Ever Stimulus Plan:

Take any city of large size here in America, lets say; around three quarters of a mill and tax the hell out of business in the center of the city.  Then draw a circle outside of the center, say ten miles, then another one to fifty miles.  Any city within that band with two hundred thousand population gets a ten year moratorium on taxes.

The kicker is that you kill the Highway Budget at the same time.  Seriously.

Best Reform the Government and Establish the Meritocracy Idea:

Eliminate State Legislative Elections for House positions.  Who the hell pays attention to them anyway? Replace them with a draft. Do away with elected representation in those positions.  Anyone who has been deselected for a jury trial three times must serve a two year stint in the State Legislature or forfeit $40,000 a year to someone who wants the job. We need a new way to identify talent because the best people are doing important things.

Why not the Senate?  Because of the Federalist Papers.
There will be exceptions but lawyers cant get to pick.

The Coming Meritocracy

One of the most important times in my life is the one that is happening right now.  I am writing as a Son of America.  My spiritual fathers line the streets of the Champs de Ellysees.  We who have given so much to the world have asked so little for so long that the exceptionalism of anonymity has finally been beaten from us.  Our enemies have discovered our hovels and succeeded in corrupting the progeny of a fertile land for over fifty years and we have been guilty of loving them too lightly for so long that the enemy at the gates has become the child that has bested us and so, is called a Genius.  

The Man Is A Genius

It is in the old fashion I mean that. The meaning that Dante meant associating it with evil because it was formed to snare men just as it still does; Full of Sound and Fury, Yet Signifying Nothing.

I search as many search, for the soul and passion of my country in desperate times and reluctant as she is to face a horrible truth.  We are no where near as stable as we convinced ourselves we would be.  We are no where near as strong as we thought ourselves to be.  But we are stronger than all of their slings together if we pledge ourselves to liberty.

Think of this word,liberty.   Think of all the millennium,  of the millions of miles travelled, the sickness and crushing pain of failure, of wars destruction and disaster. just to place one's children out of harms way.  Those ancestors whom we will never meet or even thank greet us everyday in the mirror in our DNA;  all for one word.  Liberty.

Together with the Spirit of Truth, we will become Liberators.
