The death grip of "white guilt" is evaporating, .... fast. The baby boomer throng of hippies and other "acid trippers" have screwed up this country more than can be imagined.  It is time to show the those wrinkled up "Haight Streeters" to the old folks home, and let the new grown-ups have their chance at the wheel.  The "glory of The ONE" has revealed that he is no Superman, but Zero....the boy blunder.

I see a new Dawn in the Morning coming....and it won't be wearing Birkenstocks and sandals.....but sturdy Red Wing work boots.

What the heck does that have to do with what Hitchens wrote?

 

What sort of work is it that this new ascending REd Wing shod working class is going to be doing? For who? At what pay?

 

And the question that has been eating away for 3 or 4 days now since Glen's party by the reflecting pool.........What is it that you and Glen and Sarah are going to be "taking back" that somebody else has got?

 

And if somebody does have something that you feel that you once had and desire to "take back", who gave it to them, other than the oligarchs and plutocrats who are funding this movement?

He was, for the most part, scoffing at "those crazy tea party types" and saying that they are only whining that they are not relevant any longer.... where in reality, they are the growing new awareness of the greatness that our nation once was, and will be again, under a new regard for the importance of following the Constitution that is now being ignored.

They will be building the new technologies that will lead the world in new energy sources (see hardnox's thread about new nuclear sources)  They will be seeking American exceptionalism, instead of being a third rate player that the Leftists want for us now.

We will turn this country from ruling from the judicial bench, and put it back into the hands of "we the people".  The voters will again have their voices back.

The "powers that be" had better take heed.... the Tea Party minded folks will not be bought off, they answer to a Higher Power.  Your folks who seek to re-build what the Bolsheviks had back when they over threw the Czars, did not actually get rid of the corrupt leaders.....they only traded an old set of corrupt leaders, for a new set.

Yes, this is a new Revolution, and I hope that it can remain a bloodless one....but like the Tea Party signs said...."We will use the First Amendment today, but we are willing to use the Second Amendment, Tomorrow!!"

Are you saying that bunch of 50 something high school graduates who, just as most of the rest of us, have been living heavily subsidized (in a comparative international sense) lives up until the house of cards collapsed are going to build the future thusly?

Those sorts of inovations won't be undertaken by the folks who are funding the party. They simply want cheap labor, sourced anywhere, with the displaced carrying the water for them. This is one of the most glaring examples we've ever seen of a sizable number of people being prepared to vote against their own best interests.  Making 1994 look like nursery school.

You mean the bench that gave individual rights to corporations?  It seems to me that you want activist judges when the rule in your benefit.

 

What do you mean they answer to ahigher power? Is this the rebirth of an american taliban. Second amendment rights suggest you are forming an american Al Queda.

 

If you're threatening armed warfare, I think you best rethink that notion. I think a gutless wonder is pontifficating with delusional notions of grandeur.

 

You best cool your jets or we will be calling for a straight jacket.
