  1. Good comments from both Denninger, and Alvie. I think Alvie is more on the right track, but I appreciate reading the different views.

    I have to say, the analogy between Obama and “Scar” from the Lion King was hilarious. It gives that movie a whole new meaning…

  2. No Fort Sumter. I understand. Wait for another Waco or Alamo. Okay. Then what? What is happening is we are being slowly bitten to death by hidden taxes and regulations from the collectivists at the local, state, and national level. How effective have the Tea Parties been? Have any of the pols they sent ot Mordor-on-the-Potomac really made an impact? But, okay. I’ll just sit at my keyboard and watch the disintegration, just like the French and Brits in the 30’s watched the Nazis take a little bit here and a little bit there.

    • Credible threats?
      Networking?
      Removing consent via alternate economies?
      Creating local Temporary Autonomous Zones?
      There’s plenty to do, even here behind a keyboard.
      Totally agree with the sentiment, BTW.

  3. This OWS thing is a problem that will probably get out of hand.

    Look inside: Look at your larder; your skill set; your level of physical conditioning; and look at your circle of friends with the same problems.

    Look at how the Soviets, who had recently come to power ninety years ago, viewed the solutions to their problems. The folks on the streets today, want to use the Soviet model on us, tomorrow.

    Many of the protesters haven’t tumbled to that thought just yet, or maybe ever. Rest assured, the current protesters are just, as Lenin said, “useful idiots.” They will get their just due if the revolution happens, that just due will be a bullet to the back of their necks.

    On the other hand, we are the kulaks. We are targets for the OWS crowds, and for their puppet masters.

    Winning the fight, is going to depend on the second para above.

    • “Winning the fight” is instead going to depend on recognizing the TRUE enemy. It is NOT OWS. Sure, they will need to be dealt with at some point, but other than from a smell standpoint they are not a REAL threat to anything. It is also NOT the politicians who are enabling them. Yes, they too will need to be dealt with at some point, but they really are nothing more than flapping gums. The TRUE enemy who must be destroyed if the country is to be saved is the “Law Enforcement” who have been enabling the wholesale rape of the Constitution with their nightsticks, Tasers, and guns, in direct violation of their oath of office. And don’t give me the bullshit about the “good cops” standing with the people when TSHTF. If there WERE any “good cops”, they would be standing AGAINST the Blue Wall right now, calling out their treason and perfidy and fighting it with all their hearts.

      The only good cop is a dead cop.

  4. Thought the article was great and that Denninger is still a fool. Anyone who could make an argument to vote for Obama is and has always been a bigger fool than any outright communist.
