Where do we start? Where does it all end? And, what difference does it make?

    El Gringo Viejo has delayed comment, awaiting inspiration or insight.   Depression has set in due to his observation of the rise of the monarchical rule by a fool over a parliament of whores, governing an increasingly undiscerning populace that is walking haltingly, like zombies, into the gulag of government-provided security.

     When the jester grabs the sceptre and joyously begins to wave it around, there is little that can restrain him.   Our jester is a marxist who has been carefully prepared by a loose and dark conspiracy of liars, nihilists, and marxists.   He is surrounded by confirming druids from Hell who help him by pointing the way to the dull, pointless lives provided by the socialist state...for free.   Empty your pockets and leave the contents, along with your soul, at the door, please.
     Although Edward R. Murrow and Walter Crankcase were supposedly highly regarded journalists,  the fact is that they were dedicated leftists who carefully designed their reportage to forward the "progressive" movement.  Almost all of the front seat reporters for the triple-letter networks since the 1950s have been lefties who held, and now hold, deep-seated hatred for America and the American way.   Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, and hundreds of others were Knights of the Order of the Hammer and Sickle in the service of King Commissar of Gulagia.
      There were a few exceptions over the years.  Chet Huntley and David Brinkley were no real conservatives, but they did seem to try to report things that happened, in lieu of trying to report justifications for the progressive movement and the sinful iniquity of conservatives and Republicans.    There were a few others, very few, like Liz Trotta.   But almost all were "progressives"

     We bring up these observations so as to point out that during the period of the last half-century, there has been a steady background hum in the ear of America.   "There is inequity. There is no justice. You are a stick in the mud. America is the only nation in the world that is racist.  Slavery. Poverty. Oppression. Corporate Greed. Pointless Wealth. Homelessness. The rich become richer and the poor become poorer. Judgementalism. Puritanical Repression. Abuse of women. Abuse of Indians. Abuse, abuse, abuse by the establishment, repression of the majority."
     The discerning people recently were treated to the scene of the Occupy Wall Street movement declaring that they were the 99 percent, mobilising against the 1 percent.   We thought, "Well, finally the cutting edge of the progressive movement has demonstrated that they are deranged loons, leading vapid, undiscerning focus-group fodder to pointless windmills."
     Nancy Pelosi gave her benediction, declaring, "They are doing god's work".    She was telling the truth....except that  we suspect that she marches to the tambourine and drum noise of a different god.

     Now, however we hover on the tipping point...perhaps we are past that point, I fear...where the mindless and  those incapable of critical thinking can be led to the polling places and told to vote for their selfish interests....instead of the interests of their society, culture, and nation.  If one were speak to that section of the populace and say, "There is a difference between self-interest and selfish interest", those listening would not have the merest notion of the meaning of such a sentence.   Why?   Because they have become accepting of the idea that they should want and certainly deserve to be taken care of and provided for by a supreme power, known as THE GOVERNMENT.    Times have brought us to the point where Providence has become providence.
     And those of us who can think critically have either lost the Republic, or are, as stated before, right on the tipping point.   What difference does it make, if it is so evident that the Tea Party dumboes are cleaner, straighter, more considerate, more responsible, more generous, more respectful, and simply better citizens than the filthy, profane, vile, vicious, invasive, presumptious, socially psychotic Occupy Wall Street people?  The dullards and non-critical thinking carried the day in the last elections because they were mean, crass, and mendacious to the core, and we were nice.

     And the ACORN - OCCUPY - Trumka - Ayers axis of hypocrisy and global warming marches on, leading its army of zombies, recipients, and permanently aggrieved victims....marching ever onward to the big Queen for a Day Contest and Lottery Ticket Dispenser in the New Utopia.    Obama, with his Greek Choir of Dolts lined up behind him in full regalia, assures the populace that he will decide what the correct amount of money is needed by the millionaires and the billionaires and he will continue to fight against the Republicans and the Tea Party and other extremists who want to throw old people into the streets, over  the cliffs and deny Head Start to crippled children and force women to have babies, and starve children...and destroying the planet...and everything.   Obama will ask forever to the doltish masses, "What is wrong with using a balanced approach and asking the millionaires and billionaires to pay their fair share?'   Rule by focus group phrases uttered by dolts.

     And the Republicans refuse to fight.   They refuse to fight them on the beaches.   The echoes become fainter......"......we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."  (excerpted from Churchill's accounting of the Dunkirk evacuation and general defence of the Island of Democracy - 1940)
