Please read Sultan Knish’s latest on Wisconsin and the bigger picture.
Government employees have two major problems.
One — their taxpayer bosses are done.
Two — even without the building taxpayer revolt, they will never get what they have been promised by the ever-pandering elected officials responsible for the several states’ fiscal crises.
Members of the various Tea Party, 9/12, and other freedom-oriented folks in the Atlanta area will be assembling in the vicinity of Georgia State Capitol this coming Wednesday afternoon at 4 pm. We’ll be providing balance to the ravings of the passengers aboard the SEIU Thugbus, which is scheduled to vomit forth its stooges at that same place and time.
If you are within three hours drive of ATL, come join us.
Dan and others from RTC will be there, with the usual accoutrements. As always, each participant is responsible for compliance with all applicable local laws.
Rally point will be the corner of Trinity and Washington Streets in front of the Trinity United Methodist Church. Guide on the Gadsden flags. Rendezvous time no later than 3:45 pm local.
There appears to be some regulations re armed protests on the Washington Street side of the Capitol, so attendees are requested to be flexible in your attire. We will attempt (but no promises) to get some additional clarity regarding the situation and post it here prior to the show.
Take a stand.
Join us in Atlanta on Wednesday.
Or hold your own counter-demonstration when the SEIU Thugswarm comes to your AO.
From JR Nyquist:
Read the rest.
Go and read.
The Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) balance increased by $7.2 billion during the third quarter to -$8.0 billion (unaudited), the third consecutive quarterly increase following seven quarters of decline. Assessment income of $3.6 billion and a $3.8 billion negative provision for insurance losses were the primary contributors to the improvement in the DIF balance. Interest earnings, combined with unrealized gains on available-for-sale securities and other net revenue, boosted the balance by another $0.3 billion. Operating expenses reduced the balance by $0.4 billion.

Updates on the SEIU thugsite (assuming it stays operative).
You know what to do.
Junior Deputy Accountant asks a number of very interesting questions.
Got another reason to focus more on the physical world, rather than the online world?
A thank-you note is posted at RTC.
We at WRSA also thank the participants for this related update to the rules of engagement.
Quoth Professor Reynolds:
Have fun, folks. You are establishing precedents that will return on you threefold.
There endeth the lesson.
Do you know where the local SEIU offices are in your AO?
What about the teacher’s union offices?
Are your local LEOs unionized? If so, where is the office of that local?
Who are the union leaders for all of these locals?
Where do they live?
Inquiring, freedom-oriented minds should want to know…..
…So the wholesale elimination of government schooling will lead to tens of thousands of uneducated youngsters? What do we have now under the government education system? A nation of budding inventors and entrepreneurs?
No, these aspirations are universally condemned in government schools. What you have are shambling mall lampreys tied umbilically to their various electronic devices all of their waking hours having the quality of life only the dead would envy…

If you haven’t been keeping track of who is whom, best start doing so.
Consequences are generally earned.
You may want to peruse this resource at your leisure.
That Internet thingy is going to continue to be just as secure and available for private/public commo as it is today.
Same with your mobile voice and data networks.
Read both in full, please, but note: language alert on each.
Since the utterly-predictable collapse of the Dead Elephants on both the budget and the defunding of Obamacare over the past week, I have felt a curious lift in my spirits.
I know now that the aircraft is undoubtedly going into the water, and that I will have to use my ditch gear and training.
If I survive the crash, that is.
But today, the clouds came in again, as the Wisconsin public-union thug demonstrations made me realize that the good guys are deeply and perhaps irretrievably disadvantaged by their own rule-set.
As a good guy, I was raised to respect the law (whatever it was), work hard, follow the rules, and keep my own nose clean. Doing so, taught my parents and the culture of first-half Sixties America, would ensure my success and that of the community in which I lived.
But the cataclysm that struck America in the second half of the Sixties and continues today tore away those social rule-set foundations.
That country and that culture are gone, almost certainly never to return absent a Renaissance presently unforeseeable in the coming decades.
I have fought in the nearly 30 years since my own personal resurrection from drug and alcohol addiction not just to believe in those rules, but to live by them.
Don’t hurt people (at least those who don’t need hurting).
Pay your taxes.
Wear clean underwear.
Obey the law.
Be a good citizen.
Don’t break things that don’t belong to you.
Read the major news periodicals so that you are familiar with the issues of the day.
Register and vote in every election.
Pick up after yourself.
Be kind to others.
And don’t get me wrong — I have, in varying degrees and frequency, failed to live up to each of those “musts”.
But at core, I believed in each of them and, even as I failed, tried the next time to do better.
Events of the past year have convinced me that I have been nothing but a rube, a naif, a fool.
The rule of law in this country is dead.
The idea that you have to work for what you have is dead.
What respect should one have when your country’s leadership in both parties are accessories before, during, and after the fact to a parade of frauds and corruption bordering on the unimaginable in both scope and consequence?
The vast majority of my fellow North American residents actually accept the idea of soon being de facto slaves to our creditors — or, at the very most, will only grumble at the prospect.
What we have, here on the first springish day in the wintry South of the USA, 2011, is a worldwide collection of street gangs, each of whom understands that now and for the foresesable future is the time for root, hog, or die.
And Alex, we’ll take “root” for 3 trillion, please.
Each gang has its own colors, uniforms, language, and other anthropological markers.
The lawyer gangs, the cop gangs, the banker gangs, the politician gangs, the regulator gangs, the union gangs, the government employee gangs, the immigrant gangs, the NGO and QUANGO gangs, the drug gangs, the tax enforcement gangs, the gun enforcement gangs, the disability-rights gangs, the street crime gangs, the climate gangs, the commercial sex gangs, the pundit gangs, the enviro-gangs, the academic gangs, the Islamic gangs, the collectivist gangs….the list is nearly endless.
But the key commonality between all such groups is this:
There are those in the group, and then there is everyone else.
“Everyone else” breaks into two subcategories:
1) Other gangs (each of which can be, at any given time, an ally, an enemy, a takeover target, or an acquiring entity), and
2) The “unaffiliateds”: Individuals or small groups of individuals who are not part of any clearly-differentiated gang.
Guess who’s on the menu 24/7/365 for every other group looking for resources, victims, food, or just a bit of the old ultra-V?
Guess too where falls the average good guy or good gal who still believes in the old values?
Do you see the problem?
It’s all nice and happy to talk about “activism” and “fighting back” and “standing up”. And I don’t for a minute mean to disparage any of the good folks that I have met anywhere along the path of the last eight years of trying to do what I thought was (and likely was) the “right thing”.
But understand – in the Endarkenment, there is no such thing as “the right thing”.
There is only the cannibal pot.
Those unaffiliateds who hold to the old values rather than embracing the new savagery place a “kick me” sign on their own backs — a request that every gang thug of whatever persuasion within booting range will be glad to oblige.
But just know that the really bad guys will read that “kick me” sign as meaning:
“Beat me, take my stuff, savage and then kidnap for further savaging any females with me, and, if you’re feeling peckish and have dispensed with the primal taboos, throw me in the stewpot when you’re done.”
And spare me, please, just this once, the bellowing, chesty “From my seventy-pounds-overweight cold, dead hands in a pile of hot brass with my .308 man’s rifle by any means necessary but only after sufficient provocation lest we slide into the abyss when we gaze into becoming the beast we are fighting for our eternal souls” self-serving-and-deluding masturbatory-fantasy horseshit.
Just this once.
Please. For the love of all that is holy.
Readers of this blog know how few people will actually show up, let alone fight – in any circumstance.
Snyder called it right.
Let me be blunt, dear friends — anybody noticed any bankers going missing lately?
How about union leaders?
The other major and minor cannibals strutting about your AO – every single one of them still has all ten fingers and ten toes, right?
You do understand that these gang members have destroyed the country into which you were born, and ensured that your children and grandchildren face a nearly-inescapable future as debt serfs, right?
Go back now, please, and re-read those last six questions.
Think for a few seconds on each.
Do you understand yet?
At least this old rule still applies:
When you’re sitting around the card table, trying to decide who the sucker is, and you can’t tell……
The old way’s over, boys and girls.
New World Order, indeed.
Form your own gang, or get eaten by someone else’s gang.
It’s just that simple, and just that inescapable.
From a comment to this post:
“Sure glad there are no national socialists today.“
Today there are Nationalistic Socialists (Republicans), and Socialistic Nationals (Democrats). Two wings of the same bird of prey. Biologists call the American Bald Eagle a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleptoparasite, which means just what you think it does: “Who put their sand on top of our oil?” Etc.
Any questions on “kleptoparasite” and its continuing utility?
Word to that anonymous commenter.
Arctic Patriot’s latest.
Read, learn, and do.
Oleg frames the issue according to the late, great Aaron Zelman’s quote re Germany in the Thirties.
Sure glad there are no national socialists today.
