        We elected 31 (or 32) of the 50 State Governors, we elected 31 of 50 State Legislatures, we elected 54 of 100 Federal Senators, we elected 246 of 434 Federal Representatives.

        We don’t have a numbers problem, we have an effectiveness problem. The Permanent Political Class has no other occupation than the acquisition of the power to use and dispose of the lives and property of the Country Class. A small minority, aided and abetted by selflessly self-seeking worms within the Country Class’s own party, manufacture the illusion of a ‘Progressive’ culture by manipulating perception and Judicially and bureaucratically enforcing impotence upon the Country Class.

  • October 24, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    It’s really sad – deeply tragic. They just keep pushing. Dehumanizing us. Delegitimising us. Disparaging us. Screaming at us that we have no right to speak. Break every rule to their advantage…

    …yet they keep assuming their victims will forever be restrained by those same rules…and, despite their repeated legislative sallies, they never pause long enough to realize how little room they will end up leaving people and how many of them have guns.

    That’s a disaster crafted by the arrogantly blind.

    • October 25, 2015 at 12:34 am

      You think they care about that? Conservatives can’t even get it together to boycott a business and punish them for supporting the left. The government has been stocking up on weapons and ammo and has the military under its thumb. Right now, they are just biding their time and letting the illegals and Muslim invaders out-breed the right so they can play the numbers well.

      • October 25, 2015 at 1:08 am

        I don’t think they understand the magnitude of the difference involved. They are used to nothing unexpected happening and being able to call 911 if their neighbor is rude to them.

        There are approximately 800,000 police officers in America. There are approximately 1.3 million active military personnel. Setting aside that a large majority of the rank and file of both of those groups are actually composed of conservatives, there are an estimated 80 million private gun owners in the US.

        Even if only a small percentage of that number decides they are backed into a corner with nothing to lose (i.e. they are being permanently disenfranchised by foreign, demographic invasion) that’s a hell of a mess to try to hold back with existing security forces (again, even assuming those institutions will uniformly heed orders to stop it).

        The people who say the second amendment is a final safeguard against tyrannic excess are correct. But since that hasn’t had to be exercised on a large scale before, the idiots thoughtlessly believe it can’t happen.

        It would be a horrible, awful mess. But the only people actively trying to head it off and stop such a disaster before it gets rolling are on our side, not theirs.

        The imbeciles just KEEP PUSHING, with no belief that old Greek Nemesis always claims his due.

        H B,
        Using your numbers, the total of active duty military plus police is 2.1 million. A mere 3% (I like that number) of 80 million gun owners comes to 2.4 million, or better than even odds. Since coalition troops have never (to the best of my knowledge) enjoyed LESS than a 10-to-1 numerical superiority over the insurgents who fought them to a standstill, I seriously doubt the U.s. Armed Forces could do better at rough parity. When you add in the fact that a significant percentage of the insurgents would be likely to be combat veterans, trained and experienced current doctrines, it doesn’t look good for gov forces.

        I’m kinda partial to the sentiment expressed in the graphic linked to below. Check it out.

      • October 25, 2015 at 6:17 am

      • October 25, 2015 at 11:52 am

        The ROE would be different here, The progressives who run the gov would allow their minions to shoot us on sight, without any provocation other than being a gun owner, or conservative, or Christian. Most of the real warriors – including the non-coms who are the backbone of any military – have been driven out, purged as Matt Bracken posted. Even may of the enlisted are getting out (11,000 straight guys were raped by gays last year – five gays on one guy in the shower?). The “new” military, operated as an personal army of the progressive/Marxist CIC, loaded with gang-bangers (in both sense of the term) muslims, and such, would not have the reluctance to shoot American citizens that the old military had.

  • October 24, 2015 at 10:26 pm

    Benghazi, emails, murders, lies…at this point what difference does it make?

    None, according to the “media” she has beaten back the challenges of the evil committee, the “investigations”, the purely partisan attacks…and the Clinton campaign has begun; even the little commie clown is part of the plan, intended to make “it” seem moderate and reasonable in comparison. But note that its key point in its very first speech after its “victory” in the hearings…was “we are coming for your guns”. And you had better believe it, because it knows that is the only thing between it and its monarchy.

    A few months ago I never would have thought that I could say or even think this, because I knew then that the Beast was preordained as Dim nominee and felt that its election was a slam dunk, based on what pathetic opposition had been mustered by the opposition, the incredible degree of stupid of the electorate, and the overwhelming defeatism, hopelessness and even apathy among our own, me included.

    But now I believe and am at this point convinced, that there are a few words that could prevent it, and even offer hope for the Republic going forward for our children:

    Trump/Cruz 2016. Cruz/Carson 2020.

    I see a debilitating stroke in Hilly’s future.
    One which will leave her trapped in a decaying body to go with her already corrupt morals and decomposing mind. Slowly after, then in a torrent, the truth in all its disgusting glory will pour forth.

      • October 25, 2015 at 9:34 am
        Otto Didact

        “she is definitely crazy”

        If so it’s like a fox. She knows that she is extremely unlikely ever to even indicted for her offenses, much less see then inside of a jail cell. People of her tier rarely if ever are punished for their misdeeds – AND SHE KNOWS IT! When was the last time a prog – or any other of the ruling class for that matter – actually paid a dime or did time for clear crimes?

        Lincoln had that famous aphorism about fooling the people. He left off the most important part. You see it is NEVER necessary to fool ALL of the people ANY of the time. In a democracy, all that is needed to acquire and maintain power is to fool ENOUGH of the people ENOUGH of the time. With the press unabashedly in their corner that becomes a trivial task. Add in a populace increasingly indoctrinated and conditioned to believe any government pronouncement and it becomes a cinch.

    • October 25, 2015 at 7:47 am

      Of course, by that time she’ll probably be POTUS, so as with the Emperor of the Galaxy in Douglas Adams’ Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, that will just mean that actual power moves a rung or two further down the ladder.

      To somebody like Lois Lerner or Eric Holder.

      And don’t bet that even a paralytic stroke would keep Hillary! from going into full-on RedJac

      And the rest would do her bidding. After all, she’s their Goddess almost as much as “Holy Mother Gaia” is.

Hire a good ad agency to develop a campaign that keeps her lack of accomplishment, lies, character flaws, and failing health in the public eye. It’s called “propaganda” and despite the negative connotations, it is a legitimate political tool. Tell the truth, but the ugliest truth we can find.

    It is somewhat depressing is it not … maybe this will lighten your morning:

    • October 25, 2015 at 8:14 am

      A recent psychological study and poll showed that “non-progressives” have a far better understanding of the way progressives think, and what their vision of “The Way Things Ought To Be” is, than progressives do of non-progressives’ worldview, etc.

      I can remember conversations like this fro college in the Seventies, and with progressive friends’ later on. It all boiled down to “If they (i.e., the “reactionaries”) don’t play ball, we kill ’em”.

      Too much SDS in their diet would be my guess. Plus the fact that no group of socialists anywhere has ever had much resistance to what has been called “the siren song of ‘cleansing violence'”.

      Either that, or at heart, they just get off on the whole idea of violence, killing, running amok, etc., and became “progressives” because that was the “movement” that promised them they could do it and be blessed for doing it. Rather like Islamists, in many ways.

      If you’ll pardon my ego, I call it Eon’s First Law;

      People follow movements and philosophies which sanctify them doing what they would anyway, of their own volition.

      Think about it. Would your nice Christian neighbor be less nice if he wasn’t a confessed Christian? Or would he be the same person, looking for a philosophy that suited him in being nice?

      Would a Hell’s Angel be less of a raving, drug-using, whacked-out freak without the jacket with the club crest on it? Or would he still be a violent, unstable nut?

      I believe people choose their “philosophies” based on their own natures.

      And there’s a quote about that;

      “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”

      ― Robert A. Heinlein

      clear ether


      • October 25, 2015 at 10:12 am

        eon, while I love me some Heinlein, in that quote I think he misunderstood and misstated the division…and talk about pardoning an ego, I would call this paraphrase “pawnbroker goes heinlein”:

        “The human race divides into those who want to be controlled, protected, and provided for and those who know that in the end those tasks all fall to himself. The former are gentle fools who believe and depend on the kindness and good intentions of others. The latter know that human nature is self-centric and greedy, and are suspicious, wary, and prepared when their suspicions are confirmed and the SHTF. And the latter, fiercely independent and prepared, are indeed the better neighbors than the former, dependent and helpless when socialist structure collapses.”

      Nice thought, but we have seen far too many examples – as Chris mentioned in this cartoon – where the opposite is evident. Eventually, I hope that turns around, but think of how many millions of people have marched to their deaths without raising a hand to protect themselves: Armenians, Jews, gypsies, Poles, Russians (Kulaks, Ukranians, etc.), Chinese, Cambodians. Into the desert, into cattle cars, into gas chambers, kneeling by ditches they dug themselves. Except at Sobibor, nowhere did those facing what they _knew_ to be certain death try to rush the guards, and at least take a few of them with them into death. Most people just wait for the bullet.

        But I think that we, today, have the hindsight of history to show us the eventual outcome of “go along to get along”.
        And by looking at the current rate of non-compliance (approx 90%) of the currently enacted (but not enforced) anti-gun laws in CT, WA, OR, NY, CO, I think WWNC (We Will Not Comply) is a concept that will spread to other areas of day-to-day life.

      Strange she wasn’t capable of knowing where she was at for the hearing on Benghazi.

    c. 4th Century BCE, Plato declared that concepts (Universals) originated in a supernatural realm of perfect Forms & that all we see in “this world” are imperfect “shadows” of those Forms, the result of a mind-body dichotomy–the mind being the Good; the body being part of this imperfect world.

    From the 2nd Century CE through the Dark Ages, mystic philosophers–from Plotinus through Augustine & beyond–took Plato’s mind-body dichotomy and translated it into the soul-body dichotomy.

    In the 17th Century, Descartes posited his “Dream Argument” whereby the only thing of which he could be certain was that he was conscious, the certainty of his doubt reating on the premise that Man’s senses were fallible whereas his conscious could (somehow) perceive the “Truth.”

    In the 18th Century, David Hume asserted his is-ought dichotomy, declaring fact objective, but values were a-rational.

    In the 18th Century, Immanuel Kant divided the world between the phenomenal (what Man could know via his senses & his reasoning mind) and the noumenal (that realm that Man could not know with his senses and could only demonstrate through his reasoning (see “rationalism,” which is the belief that if one makes one’s argument internally consistent, then it is true in reality, too (or see Sheldon from BBT)).

    In the 19th Century, pragmatist philosophers like Pierce, James & Dewey declared truth “…a property of the idea [not] something mysteriously connected with the object known” Therefore, declared James, “The true is only the expedient in a way of our thinking….”

    In the 1970s, journalist at a convention in AZ declared that objectivity was impossible in news reporting.

    In September, 2001, Dr. Stanley Fish wrote in an LTE to the New York Times that:

    ” there’s “no independent standard for determining” truth; thus, all absolutism threatens “serious thought.”

    Hillary Clinton is but the product of the last 2,000-years of philosophy.

    PS. It could be said, given that history, that Mrs. Clinton therefore stands on the shoulders of … midgets.

    PS. Only Aristotle and that demon of the conservative Right, Ayn Rand, declared truth as objective, capable of being perceived by Man’s senses via his reasoning mind.

    “Truth is the recognition of reality; reason, man’s only means of knowledge, is his only standard of truth” _Atlas Shurgged, Galt’s Speech; Ayn Rand.

    “Truth is the product of the recognition (i.e., identification) of the facts of reality. Man identifies and integrates the facts of reality by means of concepts. He retains concepts in his mind by means of definitions. He organizes concepts into propositions—and the truth or falsehood of his propositions rests, not only on their relation to the facts he asserts, but also on the truth or falsehood of the definitions of the concepts he uses to assert them, which rests on the truth or falsehood of his designations of essential characteristics” (“Definitions,” Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, 48; Ibid).

  • October 25, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    PPS. One last one.

    “[Consider the catch phrase:] “It may be true for you, but it’s not true for me.” What is the meaning of the concept “truth”? Truth is the recognition of reality. (This is known as the correspondence theory of truth.) The same thing cannot be true and untrue at the same time and in the same respect. That catch phrase, therefore, means: a. that the Law of Identity is invalid; b. that there is no objectively perceivable reality, only some indeterminate flux which is nothing in particular, i.e., that there is no reality (in which case, there can be no such thing as truth); or c. that the two debaters perceive two different universes (in which case, no debate is possible). (The purpose of the catch phrase is the destruction of objectivity.)
