I warned you...

Greetings good citizen,

I take small comfort about being at least partially correct, the ‘opposition’ is doing it’s damndest to prove our now ancient system of government ‘doesn’t work’.

News of the prospect that the vote could be put off began circulating as Representative Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader and former House speaker, was making her party’s closing argument against the plan on the floor. After the night of uncertainty, Ms. Pelosi said she hoped the struggle would make House Republicans more willing to give ground.

“Hopefully, now the Republicans will come back to the table to negotiate a bipartisan, balanced agreement that is overwhelmingly supported by the American people,” said Ms. Pelosi, who added that “Republicans have taken us to the brink of economic chaos.”

The delay caught Senate Democrats off guard. Harry Reid, the majority leader, had said earlier Thursday that once the House approved its plan, he intended to immediately set it aside and move ahead with his proposal for deeper spending cuts and a longer extension in the debt limit, which would ultimately be thrown back to the House.

While the corporate owned media unerringly points at the GOP as the ‘guilty party’ nobody should be surprised to see Republican’s winning re-election during next year’s presidential contest.

The ‘winners’, as you well know, are whoever the corporate owned media says they are…which is how we got to where we are today.

As ‘inexplicable’ as this will seem the ‘R’ and the ‘D’ haven’t mattered for quite some time. All that matters now is the ‘illusion’ of two opposing parties…who happen to take their marching orders from the exact same people.

Ironically, when the ‘new broom’ comes along there will be no room for ‘dissent’. The new rulers will not tolerate disagreement that leads to ‘divisions’ in their society.

In keeping with GOP philosophy, there will be a place for everyone and everyone will know their place…and they won’t complain about it if they know what’s good for them!

Yes good citizen, welcome to the world of the ‘birth lottery’ where only ‘useful idiots’ are socially mobile.

How will they keep the ‘poor’ from expressing dissatisfaction with their lot in life?

The true ‘old fashioned way’ perpetual war (with other neighboring nobles!) You’ll be kept busy fighting one another so you won’t have the time or the energy to fight their oppressive rule!

Which is to say, the more things change, the more they remain the same!

Piss off the local Lord high mucky-muck and you could find your murder being used as the excuse for the renewal of hostilities with the neighboring Lord Nitwit.

How glorious will it be when those presumed to be incapable of being wrong sit in judgment of our, er, ‘transgressions?

Can you say ‘Kangaroo court?’

But I digress.

Let us consider the number #2 news item for the day (according to the NY Times)

On Friday, when President Obama is scheduled to announce even stricter standards — in fact, the largest increase in mileage requirements since the government began regulating consumption of gasoline by cars in the 1970s — the chief executives of Detroit’s Big Three are expected to be in Washington again.

But this time they will be standing in solidarity with the president, who will also be surrounded by some of Detroit’s highest-tech — and most fuel-efficient — new vehicles.

While the American carmakers, as well as their Asian rivals, once argued against even minimal increases in government fuel rules, they are acquiescing without protest to an increase to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025, from the current 27 miles per gallon.

Wasn’t there supposed to be a thriving colony on the Moon and one under construction on Mars by now?

Which is to ask how much do you think a gallon of gas will go for in 2025?

More succinctly, will there be anywhere to go in 2025?

You won’t have a ‘job’ per se in 2025, the global market will have priced you out of it by then. (So vigorous will the competition for paid labor be and so cut throat will the value of money be.)

Of course there will be larger problems to contend with long before then.

Like a largely unemployed but nuclear armed United States, not that the US will be the only nuclear armed ‘wildcard’ out there, the on ‘in play’ today is Pakistan!

Will the Pakistani’s be used as an ‘example’ of what happens when a nuclear arsenal loses its leash?

No matter how you slice it good citizen the future looks grim indeed.

Thanks to the ‘nuclear wildcard’ the failure to accept the return of Monarchy may well result in a rather nasty nuclear exchange between ‘noble wannabes’ attempting to make the ‘peasants’ more submissive.

It’s the old ‘rule in Hell rather than serve in Heaven’ routine…even if it means sending what remains of humanity straight to the Devil.

How ironic is it that this willingness to destroy our entire race is viewed (by them) as their fitness to rule?

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
