I have managed to sit through this first night watching the Democratic
convention without throwing up! But, my stamina and tolerance for mindless
#$%$ is running down. Democrats love to tout their "dreams" for giving
every living being within our borders a free ride to becoming something vaguely
better than what they are... but ignoring the costs that others will bear for
these free rides. Nobody has to pay in Obamaland! And promises like these
buy votes. And as for the burden of the debts already on our children's
backs....forget about it! Treasury deficits don't matter. (Financial Hell
Obama's "Jobs Act"??? Never in the history of mankind has a government
anywhere...anytime....created any jobs other than government jobs that must be
funded by taxpayers. Those aren't real jobs. Democrats want Obama to have
another 4 years...to create jobs??? Has one democrat ever championed anyone
that has made it on their own? Well...they did not do it on their own according
to the enlightened Democrats. Somebody (from the government) gave them a
helping hand. Government simply needs to get out of the way.
Mit Romney is no savior and he should definitely downsize government by 50% and
eliminate 80% of regulations that get in the way of private business. He
probably won't! Additionally, Mit has this unbelievable love for (expensive)
military power. Cut defense spending, get Americans out of harm's way, ...and
for the love of God...get religion out of politics!
My apathy for politics is kicking in. Neither party will salvage what is
heading towards America. They have both promised too much for too long and the
piper is coming to collect his dues. We're broke. We're stalemated in Congress
as they fail to get off the pot and do anything constructive.
Buy gold, buy guns, buy dehydrated food, store plenty of water, and get your
hands on as much ammo as you can! You'll feel better.
Not gold..Physical silver coins and lots of them.. Rice by the bulk..50# bags at Costco for under $20..I have 800 pounds. Lots of Campbell chunky soups to mix with the rice. AR-15 -.22 semi-auto Smith & Wesson with a few thousand rounds of hot hollowpoints.. Home defense and barter. Plenty of laundry and hand soap-shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper.Bleach for water purification. Just to begin with.. You will need it all Put it in your creditcard if you have to.
Read "Predator Nation" by Charles Ferguson who produced the documentary "Inside Job" about the financial meltdown a few years ago. And vote Third Party--ANY Third Party. As Ferguson, and this is a Cal Berkeley grad with a PhD. in political science from MIT not a right wing wacko, points out it doesn't matter whether it's the Dems or Repubs who get in. They're BOTH screwing us.
PhD in political science - about as impressive, and useless as anything can get. This guy may well be correct in his outlook but I assure you that his "education" in political science is totally unimportant. Anything political is never science !!
Buy guns and get on the range and practice picking off bad guys versus good guys, skill is very important here. It's no wonder the gun manufacturer RGR is running 365 on three shifts and is only hamstrung when it can't get virgin gun stock fast enough for its factory and new 4 mini factories. With new designs headed for XMAS it's the AAPL/SLW of the self defense world, a good stock to accumulate on dips.
my abhorance for politics will soon push me to ignore all political posts until after the election.
It will make no difference if Obalmer returns or we get Mittens. We are still doomed.
You are, of course, correct. The only difference is in how the "end" will play out. When the jig is finally up (i.e., the Sheeple finally figure out that they've been hoodwinked), it won't be pretty. At that point, it may matter who occupies the WH. So, I'm still going to pull the lever for Mittens, hoping that a country club Repub is still better than an outright Marxist.
