Short Memories, Long Term Consequences

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


As a nation, as citizens, we seem to have developed the memory span of fungus. We move on to whatever new scandal, crisis or distraction comes along and it all seems to have the shelf life of a loaf of bread.



Does anyone remember “Benghazi” at this point? Al Qaeda attacked and killed an American ambassador and three security personnel seeking to defend him on the anniversary of 9/11. The battle went on for hours and, according to reports, it was watched in real time in the White House situation room or wherever our top spooks gather to watch such things. It is a complete total scandal, but reportedly President Obama tweeted about it once and about rapper Jay-Z some 45 times. Some people think the President is “cool”, but that strikes me as “cold.”

Does “Fast and Furious” mean anything to anyone other than the title of an action film? It was the code name applied to an appalling gun-running scheme run by our own Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF for short) with the notion of tracking them to the cartels that received them. It was a complete foul-up and got a U.S. Border Agent killed with one of the firearms. After a number of hearings in Congress and demands for more information about it, the President declared “executive privilege” and the whole thing, so far as the media was concerned, went away.



How about the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have generated at least 20,000 jobs for Americans, not to mention as much as 700,000 barrels of crude oil to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast? In January Obama threw a monkey wrench into that, saying he didn’t oppose the project but was worried about greenhouse gas emissions and possible spills. Yeah, right. I believe that, don’t you? Even labor unions opposed that decision.

How about forty straight months of an unemployment rate at or exceeding 8%? It only dipped slightly below that in December because more people just gave up looking for a job.

Then, too, the jobs Obama added to the federal government may have been a contributing factor. As Paul Kengor reported in the American Spectator, “The numbers show a massive increase in government jobs created over the last five months—621,000, to be exact, dwarfing private-sector job growth. Those new government jobs account for a staggering 73% of overall job growth. In all, it means that 20.6 million citizens now work for government, out of 143 million people employed in America—or one in seven Americans.”

Has anyone—especially in the mainstream media—noticed that Obama backed the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Morsi to replace Hosni Mubarak as the president of Egypt? Morsi tried to declare himself the new “pharaoh” or dictator and Egyptians once again filled Tahrir Square in Cairo to protest his turning the nation into an Islamic paradise along the lines of Iran. Mr. Morsi decided he could wait to be dictator and rescinded his effort—at least until a horrid, sharia-based new constitution becomes law; which it will. Starting with his now famed “apology tour” that included Cairo and a lot of kowtowing to Islam, Obama has not enjoyed much success in the Middle East which threatens to burst into a larger battlefield at any time. Under Obama there has been zero leadership regarding the Middle East. It’s called “leading from behind.”

It is more than just strange that, as the nation hurtles toward a huge increases of taxes, mostly on the middle class that Obama says he is defending, and sequestration, automatic cuts in spending (which Obama hates because he lives to spend the money the U.S. has to borrow to the tune of $4.8 billion every single day), no one seems to know how this fiscal cliffhanger will end.

My bet is on Obama taking us over the cliff into years of higher taxation that will further cripple economic growth. Does anyone remember or even know that there has been no formal budget for the last three years? The last one submitted by Obama was unanimously rejected by Congress.

Does anyone remember the Simpson-Bowles Commission that Obama said would provide recommendations to deal with the skyrocketing national debt, the reform of the tax code and the so-called entitlement programs? Only political wonks and junkies remember that, but everyone else has forgotten that the commission offered some excellent recommendations which Obama promptly ignored.

All through 2011 the national debt climbed higher and higher with no signs of any reduction in the spending. Keeping pace with it has been unemployment in America and, in tandem, an extraordinary rise in the use of food stamps, a social safety net, but also a multi-billion dollar expense. ALL of the economic indicators, when you get past the short term reports—blips—of improvement, are BAD.

Either not keeping these things firmly in mind or forgetting all the other reasons guarantees that 2013 will be worse, politically and economically, and will exact a toll for the national short-term memory that seems to be the norm.

It used to be easy not to forget back a few years ago, when the news agencies reported on the news and kept going on it until enough of people started to call for action, instead of covering it up. Now after this mass shooting of those children, the news is all over this for the purpose of gun control. Where the real story is questioning why all of these nuts are not institutionalized. Let's get real!!! The killings that have happened in recent years is from libturd obstruction of justice. Number one is THE DEATH PENALTY!!! Number two is CLOSING THE MENTAL INSTITUTIONS!!! If you lie long enough people eventually beleive it as the truth.

That's if there is anyone left in government that has the good sense to fix rather than break.

We have to stop this crazy spend spend and tax more attitude that got us into the mess we are in! If we do not, we will be BR before long and it will never recover in our lifetime!!! TWIT!!!

Soon our dollars will be useless. Keep some liquidity in your holdings. Silver and gold will be the new money.

That is the necessities. Nothing else will be worth anything. Oh don't forget water and a good trauma kit.

Water is in my well! Only problem is that it requires electricity to operate. Have three separate generators but each requires fuel. I am beginning to amass fuel stored in bulk for their needs. The trauma kit is a WIP!! I continue to add to it as I recognize the basics. #1 son being an RN has helped a lot! He knows and understands the ability to adapt and overcome! He continues to come up with things I would have never thought of!!

As far as medical emergencies, you just can't aquire enough supplies and equipment. It's great that your son has the education for this. All I have is a box of bandaids and a bottle of asperin. LMAO

One other clue for the medical supplies is from Tractor Supply and the antibiotics for animals!! In normal times I would never do that but if no other option was available, I would not hesitate to use them. Many alternatives available if you just adapt and overcome!
