Will This Year Be Better?

Last
year was not too much to write home about. Will this year be better?
Let's ask some questions and see if we can figure out what may be
coming our way.

Will
sixty billions for a war on Iraq really revitalize our economy?

Sure
— just like Wilson's War to End War ended war. And wasn't it Johnson's
War on Poverty that created all this economic mayhem? Shouldn't
these people just shut up and stand aside for a few years?

Will
Muslim immigrants really save socialism in apostate Europe?

Absolutely.
For at least a couple days — after that…well, Europe is overrated
anyway.

Will
millions of illegal immigrants save socialism in apostate America?

Of
course. But here is a hint — you might want to keep your own little
nest egg just in case. And you can kiss your culture goodbye.

Will
invading a country (Iraq) that does not have nukes and which
was not involved in 911 protect our national security from any but
non-existent threats?

Does
it matter? The Israelis seem happy with it and apparently that is
what counts with our leaders. Meantime, Seor Bush is extending
unemployment benefits to the Americans whose jobs were destroyed
by his policies and those of his predecessors — but we should trust
them now…with the lives of our children.

Will
there ever be a Western leader who puts the interests of his own
culture first? Who considers the interests of the people whom he
purportedly represents? Who will tell the truth even it is painful?
Who will understand the concept of duty, honor, and country?

The
only answer to this one is that it is statistically possible but
highly unlikely given the ludicrous processes in place to select
leaders — it guarantees we get men who are willing to degrade themselves
in return for power and notoriety.

What
will happen with the mainstream Christian denominations? Is it still
possible for them to repent and start preaching Christ crucified
or will they remain in the sewer, swimming in the filth with the
people of this world?

I'll
take door number two on that one, Bob. After all didn't Christ himself
question whether He would find faith on Earth upon His return? But
note, His return is guaranteed and every knee shall bow. Some however,
will bow reverently and gratefully, cheering the return of their
Redeemer. Others may not be quite so happy about things at that
point…

Is
this the year that we finally junk that obsolete piece of paper
that both socialists and fascists claim as their own but which both
ignore with impunity and without remedy by the mis-governed citizens
of the United States?

That
constitution of ours is so daggoned complicated that only a simple
citizen can understand it — judges and lawyers remain absolutely
mystified while government merely ignores it as if it didn't exist
at all. Since it is now considered "extremist" to believe
in the Second Amendment, the one upon which all the others depend;
I'd have to guess that this might be the big year. Out of bondage
to that scrap of paper and on to that brave new world promised to
us by our progressive leaders.

Is
there still time to reclaim the South for Southerners? Or are we
becoming the figurative Jews in the new improved brand of fascist
despotism — a target for all those who wish to discriminate against
someone but are inhibited by the climate of "tolerance."

Could
this be the year that our over extended military finds itself cut
off from the homeland and we find ourselves defenseless? Or is that
question just plain silly since we are already defenseless and under
control of a government whose interests are much different than
ours?

It
bears thinking about though — if I were to war game out the current
situation (from the perspective of an enemy of the US) I'd have
to say that Napoleon was right again — he that would defend all
will defend nothing. All that firepower scattered all over the place,
and all depending upon satellites and "smart" weaponry,
nothing at home but silly brutish thugs in SWAT costumes and a populace
that is rapidly being disarmed for it's own supposed safety. Wide
open borders…Well, well, now just how would I attack such a power?

The
truth is that we don't even need a military for all the good it
does us to have one. Anybody defended our borders lately? Nope…
Does anybody really care if we have troops in the one hundred plus
countries where our masters think it necessary to maintain a presence?
Nope… Is Iraq really a threat to the US? No…

Or
how about North Korea? Didn't the South Koreans ask us to leave
recently (and repeatedly)? How is it then that we are still there?
How is it that our troops are in jeopardy of nuclear attack in a
region where we are not welcome? What is it that we gain from this,
you and I? Isn't this a problem for Japan and China? Would the NKs
really be crazy enough to slip a nuke into one of those gigantic
tunnels they've constructed under the DMZ? Nah…

How
about the real question? Are you willing to sacrifice your child
for this coming confrontation? I didn't think so.

These
pending wars for which we cannot even determine a reason, other
than Seor Bush's ridiculous crusade against "evil" have
created a very real possibility of world wide economic depression.
The quasi-socialist economies of this world cannot stand another
blow. The US is flushing nearly sixty percent of it's GNP down the
toilet already — or should I be more genteel and refer to that as
government spending?

Our
middle class, which once financed this nonsense, is on the ropes
and under attack by the very cretins who live off our sweat. There
is a line that cannot be crossed without repercussions and we are
at that line right now — that line is a line where the interest
on the debt becomes the raison d'tre of our economy, where
the government spending, foreign aide and welfare "entitlements"
exceed our ability to suck blood from the veins of the middle class.
Cross that line and everyone goes down….

Meantime,
back at the asylum, we have politicians clamoring for more government
spending to "get the economy moving again." Their ideology
is the intellectual equivalent of that espoused by my cat, who sleeps
for long periods of time and then demands food, exerting exactly
no effort and assuming that because she is cute she will eat.

And
did they ever catch Osama bin what's his name? I know that if I
thought he had blown up my towers, I'd never rest until I
had my hands around his throat. This has me wondering…

Is
this the year when things finally come right? Probably not.

So
how is this for a New Year's resolution? I will not steal from anyone;
I'll support my own family and defend my own best interests to the
best of my ability. I will think the best of my neighbor but I will
continue to lock my car. I will praise the name of my God and live
in hopes of His imminent return. I will not become cynical and I
will endeavor to feel compassion for my fellow man — particularly
those mired in the world system. I will not bend my knee to the
government or any of the other false gods of this world.

Amen.
