As I Lay Dying on Good Thursday

I got some nasty bug on Monday. I've been sick as hell all week. The good news is that retired guys don't have to call in sick.

Every morning, I get up and turn CNBC on so that I can hear the latest glass "half full" spin from the media and our politboro. So today I was not shocked to see that Komrade Obama tried to suppress the Standard and Poor's report and downgrade of our 14.3 trillion debt last week. That is the same modus operandi he uses when he is asked for birth certificates, school transcripts, or passports.

I turn on CNBC to see the price of gold and silver. You see gold and silver prices reflect the worldwide village. One big collective voice that says "fuck you" to central bankers, fiat currency, a world that has been monopolized by central bankers, the dollar, lies, and inflation. Say what you will about China's government, but they encourage their citizens to buy gold and silver.

So I am not shocked to see gold and silver making new highs every day. The world is buying gold and silver, the dollar is toast (trading below 74.50) and we haven't even seen the big inflation yet nor has our FED controlled government announced QE3 which they will have to. At that moment, gold and silver will go parabolic. I still see 2000 gold and 75-100 silver by years end. There will be dips and pullbacks.  It won't be straight up, but there is simply nothing materializing politically to change my view.

For years, I was a practicing agnostic. I simply could not get my arms around Christianity. Like I had been left behind or something. That all changed for me about 3 years ago. It is Easter weekend. Today I woke up, sick as hell, gray hair sticking up everywhere, gut poking out. I looked in the mirror and asked, "Is this the greatest power in the universe?"

Thankfully, for all of us, I can answer no. All men should know the answer to that question. Most don't. Don't tease the unconscious. Just buy a little silver and gold and put together a plan. If you are counting on these "masters of the universe" in D.C. to save you- well, good luck with that.

Can you believe that 40+% of voters still approve of this communist ass? When it all comes tumbling down around their feet they will ask: but why? Ignorance is not bliss for the rest of us.

I hope,check that, pray, that Barry Soetoro does not get elected again but his push is already on, big time. He is again catering to the progressive youth for their vote and he is going to get it. The Moonbats will not give this up, and that, along with deep pocket bribe money from the corporate side makes him formidable, even if his numbers suck. Who's going to stop him?

I think the answer was provided by a guy- who's name escapes me right now. Famous dude. He said when the public realizes that it can vote itself free largesse- they will never stop. In fact- if you try to take it away (think austerity) they will howl like babies.

That's the 40%- the non taxpayers- who will vote for this POS. That's why this election is critical. Obama must be stopped or our country will implode and be lost forever to the non tax paying largesse seekers who will then become the majority.

"The America of my time line is a laboratory example of what can happen to democracies, what has eventually happened to all perfect democracies throughout all histories. A perfect democracy, a ‘warm body’ democracy in which every adult may vote and all votes count equally, has no internal feedback for self-correction. It depends solely on the wisdom and self-restraint of citizens… which is opposed by the folly and lack of self-restraint of other citizens. What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as ‘Bread and Circuses.’

‘Bread and Circuses’ is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome."
— Robert A. Heinlein "To Sail Beyond The Sunset" said by the character Lazarus Long. Quoted verbatim on the radio by Rush Limbaugh, so many people think he originated this.

Wow. Thanks Arerix. That is precisely what is happening here and I'm not sure there's anything we can do to stop it. People are just too self absorbed.
