The thing about hard commies is they are mostly soft and squishy.
A dream of the Marx Brothers as Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Past, Present and Yet-To-Come TRUMPS the nightmare of an envious and anti-Semitic Karl Marx’s ghost of Communism Past.
I take the Marx Bros more seriously than Karl Marx …
Karl was also anti-Slav. He worked as a reporter for a British paper during the Crimean War. His reports were very nasty concerning Russia people. Collected articles were sold as a book. Which was banned in the Soviet Union.
Also anti-Semite IIRC.
Ahhh, for a time machine, to go back and make sure Karl is never born. Condom? Birth control injection?
One of the few time points I would change to return freedom to US citizens.
Can’t change the past (yet), can change the present to influence the future. Anyone know how to avoid unintended consequences?
I wish the founding fathers would have thought of term limits. We wouldn’t be in the mess were in now. Give the house and the senate two four year terms and your gone. Just like the President. As it is the house is to busy running for re-election for the next two years as soon as they get there to do a whole lot of good. They are mostly power hungry. Just my opinion.
The Founders didn’t consider term limits because in their day 3 score and 10 was the exception not the rule. Some did consider the issue of corruption in office however. The Virginia governorship will not allow consecutive terms. If that was the rule for all elective offices we would see at least some relief from corruption and considerably more competition in the elected class.
The Framers (who wrote the Constitution, as opposed to the Founders who wrote and acted on the Declaration of independence) also never conceived of the concept of career elected politicians. Hereditary, yes — that’s what the Founders revolted against. The idea that anyone would want to spend his life in politics was so foreign that it never occurred to anyone at the time.
It took Mr. Clemens to put a point on it: “(Career) Politicians are the only distinctly American criminal class (parenthetical is mine).”
As attractive as term limits appears, it really cannot be implemented without applying term limits to senior levels of the gubmint bureaucracy. At some level (G6 and up?) there needs to be a set time that you can “serve your country” in the swamp. We have seen this just in the last four years with actors in all sections of the FedCov ‘resisting’, lying, slow-walking requests, etc. These actors are simply marking time until PDJT is gone. They know that if they actually do cross a legal line and get caught, they simply need to keep pushing their trial date down the line until a friendly administration takes over and then the problem goes away.
IMHO the utter lack of any consequences for malfeasance in government is one of the biggest problems we have.
“At some level (G6 and up?) there needs to be a set time that you can “serve your country” in the swamp.” This was a step in that direction:
And go back to state legislatures appointing Senators!
Repeal the 16th, 17th and 19th Amendments.
Not everything that flowed from the Enlightenment of 18th & 19th Centuries was pure clean water. Locke, Madison, and Jefferson did well–Marx, Engels, and some of the other late-end philosophers were pissants and revisionist hairballs. To paraphrase P.J. O’Rourke, Communism is to human rights what panty hose are to lovemaking. Not having it.
A miserable religion founded by an exceedingly miserable waste of a person. Marx. Even most of his comrades disliked him.
Ah, but all his comrades then and now, want to BE him.
Yeah. Lay-abouts good for nothing but living off of other people.
Is that … Welfare?
You have nailed it. Communism is a religion masquerading as a political system. Conversely, Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion. Either way one looks at it, both richly deserve to be buried in the ash heap of history . . .
When they are wrong, they are wrong.
Marx and Marxists are most definitely wrong.
They don’t work.
Yup, they don’t work. Marx hisself was a leech and a parasite, sponging off of family and friends most of his life, since he wouldn’t hold a paying gig…it was beneath him, you see….
I thought that “Santa” Karl always came with some KGB elves to take “bad” boys and girls to that special room in the basement. He has that “list”. Even in dreams. NSA knows who is naughty or nice, but they only tell on “Trumpists”. With Leftists who murdered Seth Rich, they are silent.
I hear they are now “NST” (National Security Threat). Or maybe that was only part of the dream.
Strip wise, Someone is soon to get laid.
Marx was a slob and a womanizer. He raped his housekeeper and wouldn’t let her leave the house. He was such a sloppy writer that when he ran into his brain buddy Friedreich Engels (no, not Hitler’s Engels), well good ol’ Friedrich was ONLY too happy to edit Marx’s drivel into coherent composition AND got it published for him. Whoopee!
The current crop of layabouts who think Ol’ Karl was just the cat’s meow have no idea what really happens to the enablers like them, once the hammer has dropped. They have no idea about the gulags. The Siberian Highway from Moscow to Irkutsk is not called the Road of Bones without a reason.
The forecasters here in Georgia say 90% chance of being Blue and Left of Pressure the next 6 years. I wish we could go back to when the Senators were appointed by the Governor and the people approved them through a State Vote in Congress rather than John Q. Dumbass picking a State Representative for the Federal Government.
Oh well, Kemp has a couple more years to keep pointing the state’s economy in the right direction. He has done a pretty good job during this CCP virus attack. Maybe if Fulton county has an outbreak…Hmmm. This week is going to be a very interesting week…
‘Cut of the fat’?
Kinda funny : A guy named Marx running a tv game show called “You Bet Your Life”….
That’s “coup de grâce” (mercy shot), not “coup de gras” (literally fat shot :-)).
A french fan.
No, in this context shooting the fat sounds about right.
Which would ironically be a coup de grace.
Not a frog fan. Except Pepe.
In the immortal words of Yogi Berra, read the 20th Amendment.
It ain’t over till it’s over.
Totally off comment and I apologize to Chris and all BUT for the third day of the new year, my DBD has not arrived in my e-mail. I can, of course, access it through my favorites but am wondering why it is happening.
. . . and yes, I checked my spam just to make sure it was not there as well.
This is just another daily reminder that communism/socialism always end in starvation and genocide.
If Gov. Bradford on Plymouth Plantation couldn’t make it work with a homogeneous group that had all signed onto the plan no one can…or will ever. When your political beliefs fly in the face of not just human nature but all nature it’s time to find some new political beliefs.
Either that or it’s time to water the Liberty Tree.
Re Gov. Bradford: the same thing happened to the Israeli kibbutzim – and for the dame reason(s).
More of a nightmare than most yet Sam was lucid enough to dismiss his raving unlike a significant portion of the population…
How much of the socialist New Deal do Republicans currently oppose? = 0%
How much of the socialist Great Society do Republicans currently oppose? = 0%
How many Democrat socialist schemes, from Obamacare to Marxist indoctrination disguised as “higher education”, do Republicans currently oppose? = 0%
We’re where we are not because of the Democrats’ Marxist subversion, but because of the Republicans’ sanction of it.
Our Republican representatives seem to be under the misimpression that millions of us braved terrifying Kootie Death to vote a straight republican ballot because what we really wanted was “bipartisanship.”
Fight for us now, or eat flaming political death.
What are we going to call the American equivalent of Bastille Day, and when is it going to happen? I’m sure there are at least 535 lamp posts in Washington DC strong enough to string up a congress-critter, but what about all the bureaucrats? “Open season- – – – -No Limit”, maybe?
535 just takes care of the Federal problem – there are a bunch more in every state’s legislature, which I realize must be taken care of by the respective states, but in this regard DC is a state that has a “queen,” who is ordering businesses to close against their best interest. She and her bunch will need to be ‘sorted out’ also.
“Open season, no license, no limit”.
We can call it what the NWO wanted to call it, The Great Reset.
