Whatchagonnadoaboutit?

LC and IB Bill Quick answers, to a question as to why the Ogabe Junta lies, stalls, obfuscates and breaks the law at will (in this case refusing to provide the documentation in the David “Entitled Prick” Gregory Is Apparently Above The Law™ case, but it applies equally to every single other one of the umpteen cases of Ogabe and his Commissars getting away with murder):

Why? Because they can.

They do what they want, and then they lie and stonewall if you have the temerity to question them.

We live in a tyranny. People need to understand that.

I know they’d like to avoid that conclusion, because once they arrive at it, they are then faced with the question of what to do about it.

And most of the answers are fairly repugnant. [Emphasis added — Emp.M.]

Exactly.

And that is why we are “treated” to endless exclamations of “surely not!”, “this must be the unintentional consequences of some mistakes somewhere”, “let’s not put on our tinfoil hats here” and “Obama is just a well-intentioned man who is in over his head” every time more evidence of perjury, lies, corruption, overreach, tyranny, Stasi methods and treason is added to the already enormous pile indicting the Ogabe Junta and their goons.

Certainly it’s not because all of those people saying such things are stupid, because a lot of them are most assuredly not stupid, nor is it because all of them are nefariously trying to cover for a tyrant, because a lot of them are demonstrably not on Comrade Ogabe’s side.

It’s because they already know the answer, and the answer scares them. As it should. It scares the everloving fuck out of His Imperial Majesty too.

Because once that elephant in the middle of our once free republic is acknowledged to exist, it becomes mandatory for any self-respecting patriot to do something about it, and nothing good lies down that road.

But travel that road we must. If not now, then later. If not on our own terms, then on theirs. If not on our feet, then shackled on our knees in cattle cars on the way to the camps.

Discuss.

Thatisall.

Nail, meet hammer! Exactly correct, unfortunately.

What to do?

The French showed us the way to deal with this manner of slime in 1793 – back when they had a collective set of balls (not borrowed from someone).

We live in a tyranny. People need to understand that. I know they’d like to avoid that conclusion, because once they arrive at it, they are then faced with the question of what to do about it. What to do about it? That’s easy – nothing. Why rock the boat? For the vast majority of people (here and elsewhere), tyranny really isn’t that bad. Sure, you might have more forms to fill out, you might have to wait longer for things, and yeah, you have to watch what you say about political topics, but most people don’t talk about them… Read more »

From Deth Guild: http://www.dethguild.com/the-government-has-lost-the-consent-to-govern/ Spying on the press. Using the instrumentality of the government to attack, suppress, and destroy free speech. Arming the Mexican cartels to perpetrate false flag attacks in the name of citizen disarmament. Destroying the currency and savings – and thus the life – of the citizenry. Passing unconstitutional edicts infringing on the liberty of the people. This is what our leaders offer us in exchange for our hard won treasure. Slavery and oppression. Tyranny writ large. This is a government that is lawless, corrupt, and in shredding the rule of law, they have willfully abdicated the… Read more »

I heard once that when Moses led the Jews out of Egypt only one in five went. One could stretch that statistic as come to the conclusion that 80% of any population is okay with being slaves.

A couple of observations. I believe, holding back the masses. One, we are a people that have a hard time realizing that this happening. I think that they call cognitive dissonance. We realize that bad things are happening but can’t bring ourselves to do something about it because, as Americans, we don’t have a history of the government trying to oppresses us like this. These things happen to Turd World countries, not here. So they think if they wait, next election, nest year, whatever it will turn around. They truly believe the system will right the ship without drastic measures… Read more »

LC Light29ID – The Imperial Asshole @ #: It’s going to take something dramatic that directly affects millions of Americans at a personal level for them to pick up the rope, tie the nooses and fill up the street lights. Would-be tyrants have learned from history. Keep the people relatively sated, and you can get away with whatever you want. It makes sense for all concerned. If you want power, what does it matter to give the ruled some trinkets? If you want a quiet, relatively comfortable life, why go out of your way to piss off powerful people who… Read more »

They tyrants in charge have learned jack shit from history. Just like all of the empires before, they have flushed away sound monetary policy, devalued the currency, and turned the instruments of the state against the serfs. Eventually, this leads to economic ruin – and then the bread and circuses WILL stop. The free shit army will find itself with a void in it’s belly and lint in it’s pocket sooner rather than later, and then we can look forward to the sort of civil unrest that can be… capitalized on. Negative Nancy”s didn’t win the revolutionary war, and they… Read more »

HempRopeAndStreetlight @ #: Eventually, this leads to economic ruin – and then the bread and circuses WILL stop. At which point the elites will either: (1) reduce headcount by elimination of designated “enemies of the people”; or (2) embark on wars of conquest to refill the treasury. Historically, both will be met with public acclaim, so long as the groups eliminated are sufficiently demonized and/or the wars of conquest are successful. It’s an old playbook, and it works remarkably well. And hey, you never know – .gov may just get some helping hands when it comes to “infrastructure management” –… Read more »

One measure I thought of yesterday: an online cartoon/comic strip about a non-super hero who fights the Badministration. This led family to object that I’d make myself a target, though I won’t be intimidated & in fact don’t have that much to lose. A more practical concern is that I’m not necessarily that talented or productive.

In general we may need to ask ourselves, “What would Master Sun do?” He advised attacking “emptiness,” to hit the enemy where he’s weak. So we might want to consider: What are the regime & companys’ weakest points?

There are very few people who willing to engage in anything beyond – at most – setting up a “local tribe”. Until a goodly percentage of the population are united around some common ideals and goals, not much of anything can or will happen. There might be the occasional pan-flash uprising, but without broad support, each would be easily dealt with. I disagree fully with damn near everything you said, I don’t have the time tonight to refute it point by point – exhausted after tilling another row for my garden.. All of these things will come in time. The… Read more »

So we might want to consider: What are the regime & companys’ weakest points? The nanny state’s weakness is money. It’s a system of bribery. Tax evasion, and using every means, legal and otherwise, to bleed the fucker dry. If you have any opportunity to take a dollar out of the government’s mouth… do it. Can you hassle them? Makes their jobs harder or more expensive? Put them in harm’s way? Do it. Enroll for any… Read more »

“And how we burned in the [Gulag] camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left… Read more »

“… What about the main thing in life, all its riddles? If you want, I’ll spell it out for you right now. Do not pursue what is illusionary — property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade, and is confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life -don’t be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn for happiness; it is, after all, all the same: the bitter doesn’t last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. It is enough if you don’t freeze in the… Read more »

Dunno why my rebuttal to Eeyore got eaten. Needs to be approved I suspect.

Oh well.

HempRopeAndStreetlight @ #: The founders had none of what you claim to be necessary to start a successful war. What? The Continental Congress existed beginning in 1774. The Declaration of Colonial Rights was passed in 1774. The Continental Association was established in 1774. The Petition to the King was drafted and sent in 1774 – all at least six months before the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. Thus, a government had been formed, a broad statement of purpose given, and concrete steps towards achieving the goals in the statement of purpose had been made. It wasn’t an… Read more »

http://www.dailypundit.com/?p=72217 SAN JOSE (CBS SF) – In apparent acts of “sabotage” in the South Bay early Tuesday, someone cut fiber optic cables, knocking out some 911 service, and then fired a rifle at a PG&E substation, Santa Clara County’s sheriff said. The vandal’s objective appears to have been “shutting down the system,” Sheriff Laurie Smith said at a news conference at the substation Tuesday afternoon. “We don’t have a suspect,” she said. “It seems like the same perpetrator or perpetrators to me.” For some reason this was back on the local news today. When I first heard about it, they… Read more »
