Nah, I'm Sure it's Coincidence...

Hmmm..... (Updated)

- Take a weary country and an economy tottering after years of war...

- Rip down such structures & constants as still exist, in the name of "Change"...

- The situation of the people worsens drastically - politicians offer platitudes
"It will get worse before it gets better."...

- Enact a unilateral withdrawal from all international interests & military commitments...

- Offer the option of a national-service workforce to people whose economic situation continues to worsen.

- Start Nationalizing aspects of everyday society, previously left to the individual to maintain - tell the people it's "to help them and lighten their burden"...

- Appoint someone to the Interior, amenable to nationalizing privately-held land, to better pursue "clean" energy endeavors "to help the planet and lighten its burden"...

- Continue spending taxpayer monies in "economic bailouts" - with the government eventually taking significant ownership of the business & financial sectors...

You know...

This is all starting to sound very familiar.

P.S. - The only thing missing is a whipping up of the masses, to tear down an existing leader and destroy him as a scapegoat for "the people"..., wait... got that too...
Update: (*snort* like anyone will look)

As of the 3rd, we get to add to the list :

"Creation of an entirely-new population-sector completely dependent on the government "

4th paragraph - last sentence:

"That is how we will achieve the number one goal of my plan
- which is to create three million new jobs, more than eighty percent of them in the private sector."

Doing the math - 20% of 3million jobs = 600,000 New Government Jobs

Forget 'Red Dawn' - the communists don't need to invade - we'll run to them with open arms.

....but here I sit, blogging away to you - with music and the truth until dawn...

  1. Paules says,

    If I believed in a God who answered prayers, or perhaps even a deity remotely aware of my existence, I would pray every night: "God, deliver me from lawyers." My last truck with an attorney cost me $500 to get rid of him. I would easily have gone $2000, but my attorney thought the estate was tapped out. I gave him the impression there was nothing left to loot, so he gave up and called it quits.

    What type of professional most likely makes his way to Congress? What is the most common college degree held by our legislators? Our universities don't offer certification in looting, but a law degree amounts to the same thing. It's a Randian nightmare come true. We are ruled by kleptocrats. An economy that produces 14 trillion annually makes for a fat target.

    The thieves will have it all. Every morsel. And leave the rest of us with naught. We produce, they take. We produce more, they take more. If we produce less, then they will take their share at our expense even if the populace is reduced to abject poverty. No moral conscience on their part provides any sort of restraint. None. The pigs are in the sty gorging themselves at our expense.

    I once killed a pig at the invitation of a farmer. The year was 1978, and I was young and on the road. The place was a farm near Neusiedel am See. I did the deed with an old Mauser. We processed the beast into wienerschnitzel and sausauge. I ate heartily that night without a pang of conscience. Pork is the world's absolute best meat. Neusiedal is also known for white wines and the combination is absolute heaven.

    I don't feel so generous today towards pigs. Political pigs rate two our three ranks below their stockyard relatives. And lawyers even less so. You can't eat them at least without a proper recipe. What our republic needs is a proper recipe for lawyers. Turn the tables. Our political class needs to be killed AND eaten. But that's just me. Odd fellow that I am.


  2. The secret's in the sauce, I suppose. Somehow I'd expect lawyer to be bland and gamey.

    MD, it was already cold in this house. Now you've really given me a chill.

    No one to save us but ourselves, it seems...

  3. Yah - imagine that moment when I went "Waitaminnit, I know where I've..."

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
