America on the verge of ??????

America on the verge of ??????




I mainly write about mental health, and throw in a few humorous post also. Usually I stay away from the political front, until now when I have realized with no doubt politics and psychiatry walk hand in hand (one example is the FDA). Both on one extreme wish to control others and society by setting their own agenda, and then forcing it on the masses as psychiatry and many greed mongers have in Wash. DC; On the other hand we have those that are constitutionalists out of the Jeffersonian mold of limited government and intrusion of government or other outside interest that wish to curtail our rights and freedoms as a society and people .


The American people feel under represented and are split pretty much down the middle on most major issues confronting our Nation and Union. Government is not listening to America or its people. They are listening to large corporations and a political agenda which is sending our nation toward a crisis of monumental proportions.


There is the present administration that has more of a "Brave New World" and "Big Brother" approach to problems and issues; and in opposition there are those willing to fight, die, and break away from the Union to keep freedom, liberty, self determination, our constitution, and a government for the people, by the people as the clear message and creed to our standing government and the entire world.


When the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) starts to single out Americans because of their beliefs systems and political leanings; then you have a huge monster in the closet sitting just waiting to be unleashed. Didn't we create the DHS to protect us from foreign terrorist and those with direct expressed intent to bring down America and its way of life.


It was never intended (at least I pray it was not) to work to limit freedom of expression or speech, to target veteran's, conservative or liberal Americans for their stand on major issues that divide the nation and our hotly debated to this very day.


We have had a Sitting Governor of Texas mention seceding from the union due to a federal government that has infringed upon states rights to some reasonable autonomy.

We have seen in the past few election a great divide between the American people themselves on how a constitutional democracy should be governed and how much power a Federal government should have over the people.

Could this bring us to a civil war? If states or large organized segments of our population decided to secede from the Union, or even just refuse to recognize Federal Authority we could be sent into a very precarious place of either chaos, unmentionable division, or worse.

I know there are many out that will read this post, and say this is absolute non-sense and alarmist; and I hope each of you are correct. But if you are a Patriotic American and see without doubt a government that does not represent the wishes of the people, this is exactly what our constitution actually tells us to do.

How hard could it be? Well anyone that has read a history book, knows the Civil War was not a very civil affair and quite brutal in reality. But there are also non violent ways to bring down a government. If lets say 25% of the population refused to pay taxes, refused to recognize the courts, the Federal authority, went under ground with a barter system or shunned our currency for another; this Country/Union could in all reality come to a grinding halt and no longer be operational or functional as a Union or Society.

These following articles are just small piece in a much bigger picture, that at the very least make you wonder and even shutter at what future lies ahead for us and our children. The first piece is satirical in nature and humorous to many. But they are followed by two others that are not so funny. Food for thought if not anything else on this Tax Day April 15th, 2009.

As noted by the following featured commentary from the DC Examiner's Mark Tapscott

although lacking any specific intelligence on any credible threat to security, the Department of Homeland Security recently saw fit to issue a memo on perceived “right-wing extremism” timed to coincide with tea party movement protests:


King Obama the First issues warning against “rightwing extremism;” Arrest warrants approved for top 56 terrorists

By Mark Tapscott

King Obama the First has issued a law enforcement warning decree providing loyal citizens with important information about new internal terrorist threats to the peace and contentment of his kingdom. The decree is being circulated now to the authorities by First Minister of Security Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Approved media references should note the title of the decree as “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate is Fueling Resurgence of Radicalization and Recruitment.” For neighborhood and community watches, the key section of the King's decree is one that describes the essential identifying characteristics of these extremely dangerous new terrorists as “those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”

All loyal citizens are encouraged to be on the lookout for all persons or groups fitting the above description. Do not try to apprehend such persons by yourself, as these terrorists are often armed and extremely dangerous. They often attempt to conceal their true identities and purposes with frequent reference to documents such as the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution, and books like “The Federalist Papers” and “Democracy in America.” As all loyal citizens know, King Obama the First has been extremely tolerant of those loyal citizens who unfortunately have been fooled by the false and libelous claims of these terrorists about the disappearance of individual liberty. But his majesty's patience is exhausted with those who act on such archaic ideas by participating in subversive activities such as Tea Party Protests.

To insure the peace and tranquility of his majesty's realm, his law enforcement officials have been directed to observe and collect information regarding all individuals expressing views consistent with those described above in print, on the Internet or in conversation with loyal citizens. In addition, arrest warrants have been issued for the following 56 individual terrorists. Any loyal citizen with information regarding the whereabouts of these terrorists is directed to report immediately to the nearest law enforcement representative of the King:

Thomas Jefferson, *John Adams, John Hancock, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Morris, George Read, Caesar Rodney, Thomas McKean, George Clymer, John Morton, Benjamin Rush, James Smith, George Ross, James Wilson, George Taylor, Elbridge Gerry, Robert Treat Paine, Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton, Stephen Hopkins, William Ellery, Lewis Morris, Philip Livingston, Francis Lewis, William Floyd, Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, George Walton, Richard Henry Lee, Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton, Benjamin Harrison, George Wythe, Thomas Nelson, Jr., William Hooper, John Penn, Joseph Hewes, Edward Rutledge, Arthur Middleton, Thomas Lynch, Jr., Thomas Heyward, Jr., Abraham Clark, John Hart, Francis Hopkinson, Richard Stockton, John Wilkerson, Samuel Huntington, Roger Sherman, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott, Charles Carroll, Samuel Chase, Thomas Stone, William Paca.

* "But a constitution of government once changed from freedom can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever."

Governor Says Texans May Want to Secede From Union But Probably Won't

Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, "Secede!"

An animated Perry told the crowd at Austin City Hall -- one of three tea parties he was attending across the state -- that officials in Washington have abandoned the country's founding principles of limited government. He said the federal government is strangling Americans with taxation, spending and debt.

Perry repeated his running theme that Texas' economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the "federal budget mess." Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.

Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.

"There's a lot of different scenarios," Perry said. "We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we're a pretty independent lot to boot."

Perry is running for re-election against U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, a fellow Republican. His anti-Washington remarks have become more strident the past few weeks as that 2010 race gets going and since Perry rejected $550 million in federal economic stimulus money slated to help Texas' unemployment trust fund.

Perry said the stimulus money would come with strings attached that would leave Texas paying the bill once the federal money ran out.

He said he believes he could be at the center of a national movement that is coordinated and focused in its opposition to the actions of the federal government.

"It's a very organic thing," he said. "It is a very powerful moment, I think, in American history."

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, also Republicans, have been outspoken against the federal economic stimulus spending and were supportive of tea parties in their states.

The protests, organized throughout the country by conservative groups and talk show hosts, were held on the federal income tax deadline day to imitate the original Boston Tea Party of American revolutionary times.

Chorus of Protest Grows Over Report Warning of Right Wing Radicalization

Conservative groups are up in arms following a recent Department of Homeland Security report that warns of the possible radicalization of right-wing extremists.


The government considers you a terrorist threat if you oppose abortion, own a gun or are a returning war veteran.

That's what House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Lamar Smith, R-Texas, said Wednesday in response to a Department of Homeland Security report warning of the rise of right-wing extremist groups.

Smith, who said the report on "right-wing extremism" amounts to "political profiling," said that DHS is "using people's political views to assess an individual's susceptibility to terror recruitment." He joins a growing chorus of protest from irate conservative groups that are protesting the report's findings.

The report, titled "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment," released last week by DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis, said while there is no specific information that domestic right-wing terrorists are planning acts of violence, it suggests acts of violence could come from unnamed "rightwing extremists" concerned about illegal immigration, abortion, increasing federal power and restrictions on firearms -- and it singles out returning war veterans as susceptible to recruitment.

A senior Republican Judiciary Committee aide tells FOX News that the Obama administration "should immediately retract the report and apologize," saying that according to the report, pro-lifers, anyone who lost their jobs or are one of the thousands of military veterans who have fought to prevent another 9/11 could be suspect.

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano defended the report Wednesday, saying it is part of an ongoing series of assessments to provide information to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies on "violent radicalization" in the United States.

Great empires seldom fall to outside armies of weaker consequence; they crumble from within when their people grow weary, tried of oppression, or weak through moral and social decay.

Stanley,
I hesitate to say this because it will probably go to your head but... I've actually enjoyed some of your recent post. It's nice to see you get back to your roots.

That picture of you on the can in front of your and Harry Reid's love shack is quite revealing.

Thanks also for putting that picture of Tralier Park Barbie and her husband on too. I was wondering what she looked like.

Let me know when you and Harry get into town. I'd like to buy you a beer.

Dear Readers:

This is a shining example of my openness here in the comment section of this blog, and my never ending believe in "Freedom of Speech" and the "American Constitutional principles of Liberty".

As you see; I have allowed even that sequin man purse toting, far left liberal nut job, Nancy Pepsi-Lib Hugging, Obubba loving, Mark Krusen to post here.

All I can say, is this marvel of allowing opposing views to be read here is awfully trailer park of me.
{LAUGHING}

Stephany said...

Oh, just admit it Mark and Stan, you have adjoining trailerpark property and drink beer all day while sharing photos of TPB. LOL

Stan said...

Dearest Steph:

I admit nothing on the concept of plausible deniable evidence in this particular case.

Though the nieghborhood has taken a turn for the worse since this Krusen Fella moved in with his neon painted single wide.

He does whines louder and more often than Tom Cats chasing Susie-Q Kitties in Heat.

Krusen has been known to get loudly verbally trite at 3 am with some musical screeching Cat calls and Tuba quality flatulence of his own deliverance if you dare to catch his drift.

I will not even mention his outdoor plumbing situation that is less than up to Trailer-park standards of hygienic and exquisite scenic surroundings.

Most disturbing is these liberal Tea smoking parties he's has been thrown up for some of his Obubba friends and pinko liberal socialist sequin man purth toting cohorts.

You wouldn't believe your eyes if you saw that bunch of wacky loons sitting in a perfectly good broken down pick-up truck in the old moonshine patch actually thinking they were going to Wally World in a hand basket kind of outing.

Now there have been a few complaints from Billy-Bob, Joe-Bob, Bob-Bob, Dirk, and Betty-Sue; that his life size naked photo posters of TPB lit up with flood lights may be a bad influence and causing some emotional distress on the Youngins.

So in closing Dear Steph; I have to say that your depiction of events is not completely accurate, or do they serve justice upon this humble and God fearing people's of a kind and drunkin nature.
