Ritual For A Worn-Out Flag

Read this sitrep from Denninger.

And this piece from Causapatet.

Then remember the opening of The Revolution Was:

There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. 

But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.

There are those who have never ceased to say very earnestly, "Something is going to happen to the American form of government if we don't watch out." These were the innocent disarmers. Their trust was in words. They had forgotten their Aristotle. More than 2,000 years ago he wrote of what can happen within the form, when "one thing takes the place of another, so that the ancient laws will remain, while the power will be in the hands of those who have brought about revolution in the state."

Worse outwitted were those who kept trying to make sense of the New Deal from the point of view of all that was implicit in the American scheme, charging it therefore with contradiction, fallacy, economic ignorance, and general incompetence to govern.

But it could not be so embarrassed, and all that line was wasted, because, in the first place, it never intended to make that kind of sense, and secondly, it took off from nothing that was implicit in the American scheme.

It took off from a revolutionary base. The design was European. Regarded from the point of view of revolutionary technique, it made perfect sense. Its meaning was revolutionary and it had no other. For what it meant to do, it was from the beginning consistent in principle, resourceful, intelligent, masterly in workmanship, and it made not one mistake...

Best to be working on plan B, campers.

Plan A is about played out.

The government no longer stands for the ideals it was created to protect. It only seeks to safeguard its own existence as an institution. The current crisis is as simple as Team A vs Team B. This is why the legitimacy of said government will be tested, but how that happens is irrelevant. Fight. Win.

There will be this brief intermission, as we stare at the tube or listen to the radio, in wide-eyed terror, when this begins. It will be a sort of comic relief, as these incompetanos run from pillar to post, and declare highly unlawful edicts designed to calm things down. Only things won't calm down, the madness will escalate, and we will console ourselves with laughter at their grasping of mighty thin straws. Nothing is so funny as an autocrat lunging madly for control, when control is long gone. What WILL become of them? No one will really care, as long as they croak.G*d help them, should they fall into my hands.

They've been grumbling about the GPS gas tax idea in Oregon the last couple of years. The last governor even paid for a feasability study from a state university.

Thank you for linking to
"The Revolution Was". It seems so familiar and so prescient, all of it, in the creepy way that Atlas Shrugged feels prescient. It is almost hard to believe it was written when my late grandparents were young. This, of course, is only to say that BHO is the logical successor of Wilson, FDR, JFK, LBJ, and all the other Rs and Ds since then. The individual disappears into the collective. The States disappear into FedGov. Is there any electoral solution that does not involve the wholesale repeal of the New Deal, the Great Society, and so on?

Given that not even Tea Parties will talk seriously about cutting back on entitlements and that the repudiation of the New Deal is therefore nearly unthinkable, is there any electoral solution at all?

There is no solution until men are willing to arm up, come together, and stand shoulder to shoulder to stop this nonsense.

That solution at the moment doesn't seem likely since we're talking about hidey holes, the ground beneath out feet, individual action, etc.

Wars are not won by individual action. Wars are won when a group comes together and exerts their will on the opposition. And I assure you, we are at war.

The individual action horseshit being generally discussed will result in nothing more than a mop up operation. In this day and age, with the technology and information available, lone wolves will be speedily dealt with.

We need to come together on the green. Shoulder to shoulder. You and me.

Anything less is fruitless. If not, America as it was intended will be cast upon the trash heap of history.

Very, very frustrating, all of it.

More fuel for PT.

More fuel for PT.

More fuel for PT.

Anymore, I find myself letting these things burn inside.

My "lines" are drawn in concentric circles around my family.

Some are soft, some are hard.

Someday, I will have a choice.

You will, too.

Back up, or submit.

Stand, or suffer.

Obey, or die.

The reasoned and thought-out choice made now becomes a natural, instinctive reaction under pressure.

A choice deferred is one that will later be decided by emotion. A choice deferred is indecision later.

More fuel for PT.

You do understand AP that should I be at your side or you at mine that the result would not be just double. It would be be some multiple factor greater than 2x.

Were I to be at your side, you do understand that I would care for and look after your family as if it were my own. I would expect that you would be reciprocal.

That, brother, is what we need. It's a force multiplier.

Unfortunately, there are a multitude of problems with regard to that way of thinking as well. I am not naive.

Alaska and Florida are at opposite ends of the universe for all intents and purposes. I would pray that you and I are not.

We are on the opposite sides of the universe, geographically.

I agree with you about two men being greater than the sum of them both.

Take 1/4" steel flatbar.

Flimsy stuff, in 10' or 20' lengths.

Weld another similar piece to it at 90°, you get angle iron, much sturdier.

Weld 3 together in an "I" configuration, and you have a shape suitable for building structures.

I'd be proud to stand on the green with you, Alan.

Excellent. We are now two. All we need now is 499,998 other like minded individuals and figure out where the green is. Then we just might be able to turn this thing around. ;-)

There is no one left to side up with. The few souls that see what is coming probably don't even amount to 1%. Most of the folks that I have tried to team up with(almost all are vets) now call me an anarchist and just continue to buy toys and sit glued to the idiot box watching Faux News for directions.
I doubt there's a dozen in a 100 mile radius of me, but how to find them? No, it's back to the 1 man squad for me, or wait until TSHTF and see who pops up with some brains and guts. The rest of these guys are just VFW posers, worthless and brainless!
