The war in Syria is in full swing and I find myself once again thinking “pseudo-treasonous” thoughts by backing the Assad Regime. Almost every Arab country that’s gone down this path: Egypt, Iraq, Libya is now being governed by the Muslim Brotherhood or a derivative thereof.
Is that an improvement over the secular dictatorships the people were living under?
Where they at least had the “little” things in life – things like food, water and electricity… Now their infrastructures have been destroyed, they’re mired in sectarian violence and I don’t see them becoming free under religious dictators.
Look at Iran, not a very pleasant place to dissent from the official government stance.
Then there is the ever present collapse of the fiat monetary systems in Western “Democracies” – where our freedoms have been sold out to save the “banking class.”
Is the US Government on the people’s side anymore when Homeland Security puts in an order for 450 million rounds of ammunition, have labeled people who believe in limited government as domestic terrorists and the President’s last few Executive Orders have to do with seizing control of communications infrastructure in the event of “national emergency?
I may be paranoid- but it looks like the Government is preparing for civil war when our economic system collapses.
There is no mathematical way the USA is not going to go bankrupt- trillion dollar deficits and printing money from thin air is not sustainable.
Then there’s the drought.
I think that every county in both Kansas and Missouri has now been declared a disaster area. And the USDA has just downgraded the nation’s corn crop, saying that only 26% of it is in either “good” or “excellent” shape. This is going to lead to higher food prices, particularly meat and milk.
So what’s the Governments response to this crisis?
It has, in all its infinite wisdom, decided against suspending the ethanol program. So
when we’ve lost three quarters of our corn crop, they still want to burn up what little corn we have left- that could be fed to humans and livestock- and divert it into inefficient “green energy” programs.
How stupid are the people running this Country, exactly?
There’s your update…
