Rex Farrance, 59, the San Francisco-based magazine’s senior technical editor, was shot in the chest on Jan. 9 after masked men broke into his suburban home.

My Wife Faces Homeland Security Part I: Homeland Security Presidential Directive #12

Let me ask you this: When the President of a nation can make a unilateral declaration that invalidates laws passed by Congress (e.g. the Privacy Act of 1974), laws passed by the States, and the Constitution itself, what do you have: a.) a democracy, b.) a republic, c.) a dictatorship. The answer is “c.” When laws and the Constitution are subservient to the directives of a single individual, it is a dictatorship. I am sorry. But I cannot interpret this in any other way. Call it a nascent dictatorship if you prefer. But we now have a system where a directive by a single individual takes precedence over law (Federal and State) and Constitution. THAT is about as un-American as you can get.

By the time this son of a bitch is out of office, we might be too far gone to save ourselves.

Baaaa, Sheep, Baaaa. Your Shearing Is Near.

September 25, 2007

Save the Day

Sadly, the endgame could be considerably more treacherous for the United States than it was seven years ago. In large part, that’s because the American consumer is now at risk. Consumption expenditures currently account for a record 72 percent of the gross domestic product — a number unmatched in the annals of modern history for any nation.

And:

Why worry about a weaker dollar? The United States imported $2.2 trillion of goods and services in 2006. A sharp drop in the dollar makes those items considerably more expensive — the functional equivalent of a tax hike on consumers. It could also stoke fears of inflation — driving up long-term interest rates and putting more pressure on financial markets and the economy, exacerbating recession risks. Optimists may draw comfort from the vision of an export-led renewal arising from a more competitive dollar. Yet history is clear: no nation has ever devalued its way into prosperity.

So far, the dollar’s weakness has not been a big deal. That may now be about to change. Relative to the rest of the world, the United States looks painfully subprime. So does its currency.

Emphasis added by me.

You just have no idea of how fucking bad this is going to get, do you?

Greetings From The Pentagon. Christ Sent Us To Kill You.

Earlier today I wrote:

This Administration is playing Chicken with other countries in regard to the value of the Dollar. This Administration damn well knows it cannot sustain the current military outlays for its folly in Iraq (and, covertly, in Iran) and take care of necessary business here at home. This Administration believes the Hand of God will protect this nation.

This Administration is insane.

So, does this sound like sanity to you? –

Carroll was appalled by what he found.

“In the Pentagon today,” he says, “there is active proselytizing by Christian groups that is allowed by the chain of command. When your superior expects you to show up at his prayer breakfast, you may not feel free to say no. It’s not at all clear what will happen to your career. He writes your efficiency report. And the next thing you know, you have, in the culture of the Pentagon, more and more active religious outreach.”

Continues Carroll, “Imagine, then, a military motivated by an explicit Christian, missionizing impulse at the worst possible moment in our history, because we’re confronting an enemy – and yes, we do have an enemy: fringe, fascist, nihilist extremists coming out of the Islamic world – who define the conflict entirely in religious terms. They, too, want to see this as a new `crusade.’ That’s the language that Osama bin Laden uses. For the United States of America at this moment to allow its military to begin to wear the badges of a religious movement is a disaster!”

In the Bible, it foretells of a time when Christians will be rounded up and executed.

When I was taught that, it was in the context of a global government that would be evil beyond belief.

Now I no longer think that.

That prophecy must be using a very loose version of the meaning of “Christian.”

Because, surely, these people must go!

They are the danger. They have made themselves so.

Fears of dollar collapse as Saudis take fright

Saudi Arabia has refused to cut interest rates in lockstep with the US Federal Reserve for the first time, signalling that the oil-rich Gulf kingdom is preparing to break the dollar currency peg in a move that risks setting off a stampede out of the dollar across the Middle East.

This Administration is playing Chicken with other countries in regard to the value of the Dollar. This Administration damn well knows it cannot sustain the current military outlays for its folly in Iraq (and, covertly, in Iran) and take care of necessary business here at home. This Administration believes the Hand of God will protect this nation.

This Administration is insane.

And they are going to turn all of us into slaves.

Watch as people flock here with their Euros to buy up everything in sight. You won’t be able to walk your own street without tripping over a German tourist. You are going to have to compete with the world for domestic services.

Come to New York City any weekend and see for yourself.
