Prompted by the user submitted article by Shoramin, we begin to look forward past the November elections, to see some of the things that are already being discussed about the next two years.  Additionaly, we had some "current" items to catch up on, including the fact that, "the rent is too damn high."

The Tipping Point - We’ve Been Here Before

by SecondLife Author Shoramin Femto


Despots, revolutionaries, and tyrants often come from different beginnings. They commonly begin their rise disguised as reasonable and law-abiding patriots. Their visible goal is to fix or heal some of societies many wrongs. And it’s all a noble under taking, a holy enterprise, in the service of the people.

They form co-ops, unions, community organizations, even political movements. And, they do good, lots of it. Wells are dug, roads repaired, clinics started and political campaigns begun. And they have success. Their movements become a rising wave. Soon there are many more parades and demonstrations than clinics and roads but no one notices. Along the way, it’s OK if a few “malcontents” get hurt or drop off the screen. It’s all for the movement. It happened in this country in 1966 - 1972, Venezuela a few years ago, and many other places you can name.

In most cases people eventually become worried. “Did they really do that? Did he really say that? I don’t trust them anymore. We need to do something.” And the “Movement” senses that it is approaching a high-water-mark. Soon they will reach the peak and be able to go no further. It’s “The Magic Moment, The Tipping Point”. It’s the moment that they have long anticipated – a moment that many have longed for. It’s the moment that Marx and Mao predicted. It’s the moment when they no longer need to work within the law. Lawfulness has carried them as far as they can go. It’s time for the next phase. They take to the streets and violence becomes a warning and a tool.

It happened in 19681. Our country descended into chaos. After the leftist rout in 1966, they took to the streets in huge violent waves. The peak came in 1968. The time is well characterized in the deaths of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, and the 1968 convention riots in Chicago. The insurgents continued their efforts through the Carter years. The struggle only subsided when President Reagan finally lead us out. Sadly, it usually goes the other way. Instead of the defeat they found in 1980s America, they have recently succeeded grandly in Venezuela and the American 2008 election.

The current batch of American revolutionaries will reach their high-water-mark, their “Magic Moment”, this November. They will know that they cannot progress farther while staying marginally within the law. They have already begun the debate among themselves on what to do when the electorate turns against them once again. Some will want to return to 1968 or much worse. Others will counsel patience. They will want to wait for a better time. They will suggest waiting until 2012.

George Soros is now aiming past the 2010 elections and pumping millions into his propaganda outlets2. Juan Williams is swept aside to make room for Soros’ more radical voices. All this is now aimed at the all-holds-off struggle over the next two years.

America needs to prepare for the coming lawlessness achieving new heights. The SEIU and their ilk will no longer be fettered. Those who have waited desperately for the moment of violence will not be denied much longer. We will see a replay of the battles of the 60’s. Unless prepared, we cannot assume the same happy result.

Articles for Episode 148: Judgement Calls

Here are the articles for the Episode 148.  We'll be recording live at 8:30pm Eastern if you want to join in.

Many times in the news, "we'll see you in court," is the response I hear from union leaders or activists.  It seems that the judiciary have more power than most elected officials.  To some, they can tell the sun to rise in the west.  Tonight we discuss a sampling of recent judicial activity and what it means to you and me.

Episode 147: Are we Justified?

Had to delay the publishing of lat night's show a bit - there were some technical issues beyond my control that kept the mixer from working.  Technical details aside, it was a fun show!  We actually ran out of time before we ran out of articles, so there are a few on the notes list that didn't make it into the episode.

Articles for Episode 147: Are we Justified?

Here are the articles for the Episode 147.  We'll be recording live at 8:30pm Eastern if you want to join in.

We're almost a month away from the mid-term elections and it seems like every bit of new news on old things keeps crawling out.  We've got "Mad as Hell" Paladino, "I didn't do it" Democrats and "We're going to change" Republicans.  A lot of people are angry, many are indignant and quite a few are worried and weary about where November 3 will find us.  This and more will be discussed on tonight's show.
