    Mmmm, I’ll take that Greek salad, hold the tragedy.

  • WayneM

    Given how Greece is doing of late, tragedy does come to mind.

    The country is in a box.
    And all that remains is to lower the box into the ground and throw some dirt on it.
    If you don’t vote Trump you are helping lower the box into the ground.
    And I know the objections can fall like rain.
    Yes, I have my own.
    No reasonable man is saying Trump is the best that can be imagined.
    The best that can be imagined would be John Galt if he wanted the job or Thomas Jefferson if he could be brought back.
    But the hitlabeast will lower the box into the ground, cover it up and urinate on it, in public.
    Think about it.
    Who is the ONLY candidate that terrifies ALL politicians, cultural marxists and the whole corrupt MSM, academia and whatever you can name, establishment?
    Why?
    OK. THAT is why we should vote for him.
    Trump is better than opening the doors of the insane asylum and giving the inmates the helm.
    And he might, MIGHT, mind you, blow up quite a few things that need blowing up, apart, both domestically AND abroad.
    Listen to this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiA0P9iELAA (Sorry, you’ll have to copy/paste.)
    America is NOT a metaphysically given.
    It can be destroyed, for good.
    It is only the best that human life ever devised and as such, it walks on the edge of chaos.
    On the one side a possible future where decency can find a foothold.
    Not “will” but “can”
    On the other, the abyss.
    The abyss is as real as America.
    Let’s not be the generation that buried her.

    • “Who is John Galt?” Indeed.

      Consider this, Trump chump – if The Donald doesn’t win the nomination, and it is still an open question, how certain are you that he will not mount a third party campaign and siphon off enough Republican votes to hand the election to Hillary?

      Donny-boy is NOT a dedicated Conservative, nor a Constitutionalist. He is an opportunist and an egotist (Not an egoist, Like John Galt) and a vindictive son of a bitch who has already shown he will do anything it takes to get what he wants, not what’s best for America.

      • H_B

        I’m fascinated by what a rorschach blot Donald Trump is. “He’s a predator capitalist.” “He’s a wannabe dictator.” “He’s the second coming of Hitler.” “He’s a sleaze artist.” “He’s not serious and he’ll drop out of the race once nominated.” “He plans to hand the race to Hillary based on a secret deal they made at Chelsea’s wedding.”

        If you’re horrified by what a Colossal and Obvious Error such a large part of the electorate is making (both Republican and Reagan Democrat), consider stepping back and looking at him with fresh eyes.

        I’ll say what I’ve always said here: I don’t like Trump, but I love what he’s doing to the Establishment politicians. In addition now though, I would add that the more I see of him and the more I learn of his past behavior, the more impressed I become with his character.

        • RooftopVoter

          HB well said, well said.

          The more I see and read of Trump, the more I am impressed.

          I DO like him now, but that’s only after I actually read his works, listened to what he has been saying since at least 1988, and looking at what our “Conservatives” say.

          Beware of straight party ideologies, no matter the side.

            DESERT STORM Getting Home

            In 1991, at the end of Desert Storm, a 19 yr old U.S. Army Cavalry Scout Private who had just spent 8 months at war sat out on a street at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. He sat there on his duffle bag with his Battalion around him for 4 days waiting for the buses to come and take him to the King Fahad Airport so he could go home.

            Unfortunately, the politicians of the day never planned for how to bring so many soldiers home after the war ended, so there was a shortage of planes. Politicians are great at talking, but terrible at doing.

            Finally, the buses came and took the young man to the airport. The planes waiting were from Tower Air. The owner of Tower Air had volunteered his planes and staff to bring soldiers home for the cost of fuel only. Happily, the young veteran got home just in time for Easter weekend in 1991, and spent that time emotionally healing with friends and family surrounding him.

            That Private was me. The Airline owner – Donald J. Trump. That is why I will vote Trump. Loyalty for loyalty, respect for respect. Any questions?

            I’ve also heard about a family that stopped on the highway to help when Trump’s limo broke down. He took their names and the next day he paid off their home mortgage.

            Character.

      I do so love to be told to “think about it ” in the midst of reading some diatribe. What did you think I was doing? Sticking my fingers in the air and saying LA LA LA la?

  • H_B

    You are correct Mr. Muir, the GOP…sucks.

    • Erik

      Completely untrue. If the GOP sucked, it’d be good for something

    The last time Greece was in the situation the United States is in at this time, the result was the Peloponnesian War;

    http://www.livius.org/pb-pem/peloponnesian_war/peloponnesian_war.html

    As with Athens, Washington has become a remote oligarchy, dreaming of creating a perfect Utopia, determined to impose its will by force if necessary, and not merely oblivious to the voices of the people but openly contemptuous of them.

    At the same time (again like Athens), it minimizes and ignores foreign threats, in fact coming from the same general area and culture (Persia then, Iran/etc. now).

    The rulers regard themselves as “philosopher-kings” on a higher moral/ethical/evolutionary plane than the common herd.

    And oh yes, in both cases the ruling oligarchs sought to disarm the “great unwashed” to remove them as a threat to the rulers’ power.

    The question facing us is- will we be able to rectify this situation “by the rules”?

    Sparta tried.

    Athens refused to abide by the agreements they had made.

    The result was ugly, lasted for thirty years, and ended with Athens broken.

    As the old sayings go, those who refuse to learn from history are often doomed to repeat it.

    And history repeats itself, first as tragedy, and second as farce.

    (Just because Karl Marx said it doesn’t make it any less accurate.)

      That was nicely stated. And the same will happen as out oligarchy and their useful idiots will still not consider the consequences of their actions. Note they are starting to get real serious to stop anyone from speaking against their desires.

      Appreciation for the Classical History references. I’m an Epaminondas man myself.

  • Grunt GI

    Thucydides said it best–“fear, honor, Ian’s interest” guide human affairs. Sounds like it’s time for the helots to band together and revolt.
    Oh, and love the appropriately colored togas. Just wish there was less of them. -/:)

  • Last frame. Constitution. Indeed.

  • Uffdaphil

    Both the never Trump and only Trump folks scare the bejeesus out of me. If either group stays home or votes third party the Harridan-In-Chief will slither onto the throne to accelerate the dismemberment of the our Constitution. She merits a cell, not the Oval Office.

    • Bill

      Ditto that.

  • Jeff

    I would expect that both girls are about to be down on their tummies, legs spread, arms over their heads, being “led by their Constitutions” (Zed and Damon) into the “True Course of Rectitude”!! They will LOVE it!

  • Bill G

    I keep hearing how much Cruz and Trump are feared, but I notice that Walker and Jindal, the two Governors with a proven record of conservative leadership had their path out of the race greased right from the start.

    • H_B

      I never heard word-one from Jindal, but Walker was my favorite to win. I thought it was his nomination to lose. Then he announced his candidacy and the first thing out of his mouth was “open borders/pathway to citizenship” and I dropped support for him like a hot rock. His to lose and he very carefully lost it.

      One can point to his track record of governance all you want, but he’s still in favor of diluting the Conservative electoral voice to the point of irrelevancy with unassimilated foreign colonists. Either he’s not “that Conservative”, or he can be bought, which amounts to the same thing.

    • NotYetInACamp

      From an old article way back when Walker was newly dropped from his front runner status. Walker fumbled badly concerning a matter important to most Americans. His three great victories against Democrats attacking him in elections and recalls quickly receded in importance when he commented on this important matter.

      Has Scott Walker destroyed himself with three positions on birthright in one week?
      http://newsmachete.com/?news=960

      The US Supreme Court has only decided that birthright citizenship is legal when the parents have no legal problems being in the USA and are subject to the jurisdiction of the USA.

      The US Supreme Court has never decided if people here with legal problems concerning their presence have children born here who are citizens of the USA, or are just citizens of their parent’s nations. Congress has not passed any laws enabling those children to be citizens. My opinion is that the Supreme Court interpreting the 14th Amendment and US law and international citizenship law will find reasons for most, if not all, of these children born here to be citizens of their parent’s nations, and not citizens of the USA.
      The US Congress may just have the power under the constitution to define this matter. But since when has the US Congress followed the will of the people lately? Both US Houses were changed from Democrat to Republican to attempt to get Congress to follow the will of the people. yet the US Congress has still directly gone against the will of the people on important matters.

      Jindal had some similar problems, but later came out with some ideas supported by the people, but way too late to gain traction with the voters.
      http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/11/04/bobby-jindal-immigration-without-assimilation-is-an-invasion/

      I believe that international law and US law clearly shows that invaders and their entourages and children born there have no rights in the invaded nations except to be expelled.
      The 14th Amendment does not have to be repealed by a constitutional amendment in any of these scenarios.

    Have the teeth of the Hydra been sown yet?
    It’s sad Ray isn’t around. The warriors he could conjure was amazing.

    If we have the constitution for it?

    We already have this : http://constitution.org/
    Though there are many who want to either bend it, break it and burn it because they know what is good for us.

    Do we have the people with this version of it:
    Constitution: The general bodily health of an individual, expressed by the person’s physical and mental ability to function adequately in adverse circumstances.

    These are adverse days with many pandering/playing/pimping the lowest common denominator. We have led a life of ease compared to our ancestors and their trials. How many have the skills, let alone the fortitude to outlast the storm.

    • NotYetInACamp

      Man shall fall before we prevail. And prevail we must.
      Our constitution of words and of our bodies will show. We have what it takes. those that do not use it may show the day, yet, we may have enough without them. There is no choice.

    • JTC

      We have the Constitution if we have the constitution to keep it, which the 51% (and counting) do not. That counting part is why right now the best hope for the latter keeping the former is Trump, since as H_B said so well “diluting the Conservative electoral voice to the point of irrelevancy with unassimilated foreign colonists”” continues apace the Constitution will be irrelevant and the Republic will cease to exist.

      And that is why the virtual assassination is reaching a fever pace: in an MSN front page blurb, one-half of the picture page is full-color of the commie with flag background, finger in the air, extolling three more “democratic” caucus wins, one-fourth is an airbrushed beast shrugging with the tag line that the FBI has little email evidence…and the final one-fourth is grainy black and white of a George Wallace rally implying that DT.

      And there’s no doubt in my mind that a real assassination will be encouraged and fomented by all of the terrified institutions from the left and from the “right”…and he knows that. Love him or hate him, no one can deny that the man has amazing courage.

      Happy Easter to all the virtual citizens at DBD, its talented and inspiring creator, and everyone here in the peanut gallery. He is the One reason to continue having Faith and Hope for a future worth living for ourselves, our children, and grandchildren. May God and his Risen Son bless us and keep us all.

      • Pamela

        Too bad we don’t have a way of showing those who say we don’t need to be faithful to the Constitution by providing an actual altered state of being under other options being presented by those who think they know best. How many would become devout adherents and protectors if they were to wake up on the slave block under another “better” rule of law?

  • Dastardly Dan

    I’m ready to retreat to Galt’s Gulch and wait for the inevitable collapse. Then another year or so for the piles of corpses to quit smelling.
    Then we can begin again, with a LIMITED central government, the way it was supposed to be.

  • Skip1976DAPP

    The GOP ‘Establishment’ sucks but Donald Trump is needed. If the establishment changes the rules at the convention and they pick someone other than Trump, the Clinton/Dem’s machine will roll over them and us.

    H_B,
    RE: Desert Storm. . .
    I would reply to that directly, but it has no “reply” to it, so here I am.

    Thank you for that article. I read with breath held, considering that in the article was the words “Khobar Towers”. I arrived the day after the explosion, and was on high alert the entire year I was there. I’m glad that everything turned out well, and shines a very positive light on The Donald.
