ABOUT A CRISIS THAT ISN’T A CRISIS
As I was thrashing my mind for a title for this, my latest compilation of words, the idiomatical phrase “stupid is as stupid does”, from the Tom Hank’s movie Forrest Gump, popped into my mind. At first blush I thought this would be an entirely inappropriate word title to occupy that exalted space atop the dissertation, but then the past two weeks of frenetic disorganized and comedic congressional and presidential disturbance in regard to the debt ceiling that provided such a large public entertainment came to mind.
I interpret that Forrest Gump phrase to mean that stupidity is not discerned by appearance, but rather by deeds. Indeed the performance of the members of both houses of congress and the Obama administration more closely resembled a primate animal act of a traveling circus than it did a dignified proceeding of government. And so it is that I salute the members of congress and our constitutionally illicit president for my title. Also, I am exceedingly grateful for their inspiration for following examples of “as stupid does”.
CRISES – A PATH TO TOTALITARIAN RULE
Most crises, other than natural, are the inventions of devious minds, they are the tools that have been - and will always be - used to seize power, to circumvent laws, to institute control, and to enable undesirable change. A crisis simply means that some person or a group of people has either created or simulated circumstances to influence some event or to promote a desired activity. Adolph Hitler was a master at creating crises, he promoted a series of such that enabled him to establish a fascist despotic rule over a nation and its people, to institute wars upon sovereign nations, to seize territory, to encourage genocide, and to force his will upon a major portion of the world.
In our own society environmentalists manufacture crises to abridge self-determination, to limit personal prerogatives, and to curtail various lawful activities and technical advances of which they autocratically disapprove. These may be identified by a display of obsessive-compulsive behavior when in the presence of chainsaws, bulldozers and construction equipment; they are only at ease while hugging a tree or in the presence of snail darters
Social do-gooders devise crises of various sort to force their personal, often totally selfish and stupid, desires upon their neighbors, upon those who are culturally different, upon the children of families other than their own, and upon businesses and industries who produce and sell products that they personally deem undesirable or inappropriate. The notable feature of these is that their noses are extraordinarily long, an anomaly born of sticking them into the business of others.
And now we come to the most pestilent, the most dangerous, the most consistent, and the most fearsome perpetuator of false crises - the U.S. government. Most everything that the educated morons of our government carry out - on both the administrative and bureaucratic levels - is born of a crisis predicated upon simulated circumstances. That monstrous boondoggle Obamacare is a case in point.
As stated the bureaucrats have honed crises driven encroachments upon your liberties and freedoms to extraordinary lengths. The Food and Drug Administration - our food and drug Nazis - is an excellent example. The agents of this Gestapo- like outfit limits your choice of non-prescription natural supplements; forces the manufacturers of supplements to remove the effective natural constituents of certain supplements so that the sale of these might not inhibit the sales of prescription meds by their bosom buddies the pharmaceutical barons, and tells you what you can and cannot eat, experience or utilize.
There are many hundreds of examples of such phony crises-driven excesses by the various tyrannical bureaus and agencies, but time and space limits the listing of such. But, I would be remiss if I did not point out the fact that it is these who most often do the bidding of the heretofore referred domestic environmentalists and social do-gooders. We are indeed surrounded by idiots.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN –I DIRECT YOUR ATTENTION TO THE CENTER RING
Truly the so-called debt crisis is not a genuine crisis, but rather a manufactured crisis coordinated by the internationalists to modify constitutional governance and hasten a migration toward total socialism and ultimately to globalism. The so-called sectarian and philosophical differences of parties hogwash that is being played out by the two political parties is a scam to cover a behind the scenes collusion to negate constitutional rule once and for all that a totalitarian socialist state might be instituted that would fit as an element of a one-world government.
Again there is no crisis - the government has more than enough income from present tax revenues to make the payments on outstanding loans and to maintain the basic functions of government, all that needs to be accomplished is that the members of both political parties put integrity above politics and cooperatively and drastically cut spending by the elimination of whole government bureaucratic agencies such as the Department of Education, the Commerce Department the Department of Labor Relations and a host of other meddling regulatory non-necessary departments and bureaus that employ the many thousands of bureaucratic idlers that complicate and make miserable the lives of the people.
All entitlements, other than “earned” entitlements that are adequately funded by participatory contributions, should be eliminated. And the Department of Defense and the individual branches of the armed services should be put on rigid budgets and their cozy liaison with corrupt contractors should be strictly monitored to prevent the monumental and outrageous gouging of the taxpayers for goods and services that has been ongoing for some sixty years and more. Loopholes that allow tremendously wealthy mega-corporations to escape taxes altogether must be outlawed and eliminated.
The outrageous perks and lavish expenditures of public monies for personal perquisites, such as outrageously priced vacations, credit cards purchases, exotic foreign excursions in the guise of learning expeditions, and the provision of cushy and palatial environs and private aircraft must be stopped; nowhere in the constitution does one find provision for the funding of extravagant lifestyles for elected representatives of the congress and the administration by the people. All expenditures that that are above and beyond operational costs should be made unlawful and done away with. And all such measures should remain in place until the outstanding debt is completely eliminated.
Now if all members of both parties would grab some ethics and adamantly, jointly, and cohesively adhere to such a program what would the lazy and slothful cry-babies in this country be able to do about it, the answer is nothing. Maybe these would grab themselves by the behind and become useful and productive citizens. It would do them a world of good to push themselves away from the trough, quit their whining, and contribute to the national well-being with some good honest labor.
Ordinarily, under our constitutional system, all of this could be accomplished by an honest and industriousness people holding their governmental representatives’ feet to the fire, but the people have allowed their authority and sovereignty to be subverted; their sloth and greed have enabled crooked politicians to buy out their interest in their own government with unfunded perks and unearned benefits. They are as screwed as the Indians who sold Manhattan Island; the political totalitarians have purchased their souls for a hand full of beads.
GOVERNMENTAL FASCIST TERMITES DRIVE OUT BUSINESSES AND INDUSTRY
Presently there is a great hue and cry about the fact that businesses are not hiring or providing employment. That tired and failed old remedy of providing stimulus and incentive via borrowed monies is not working. And this for good reason, as the problem lies not with lack of capital or a lack of entrepreneurial endeavor. The fact is that the politicians have nazified the system to the point that their bureaucratic storm troopers have denied business and industry the autonomy to run their own enterprises. They are restricted, necessitated, controlled, obligated, and mandated by the fascist termites of the agencies and bureaus of the federal government. To hire people is to cause them headaches and brings about great operational difficulties, which they have come to avoid by down-sizing, closing down, or relocating to foreign shores where they are not hounded to death by the fascist termites heretofore mentioned.
Business people are simply not going to continue to tolerate the usurpation of the control of their internal affairs by the agencies of the federal government. They are told who they can hire and who they cannot hire, they are obligated to benefits and perks that they cannot afford, they are censored for the firing of the unproductive and the troublesome, and they are restricted as to the administering of discipline and correction. As if all this is not enough grief they are whipped into subjection to unions and are forced into submission to the exorbitant and unconscionable demands thereof. As my old football coach would have said if you want jobs lead, guide, or get the hell out of the way. The government does none of these and government obstruction by way of meddlesome mandates will not work! The end result is a loss of jobs and rampant inflation.
WHY THE MESS?
"Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." and "1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness."
Here it comes, the preaching that you have been expecting.
If this nation would turn to God and live by every word that proceeds out of His mouth He would provide righteous solutions for every difficulty that faces this nation. His wisdom is infinite, and His powers are without limit. Puny men do not have the answers and their foolish non-spiritual endeavors succeed only in creating heartache and failure. What seems insurmountable to men is easy for God.
Dear readers please understand that this nation is on a ledge overlooking a precipice of complete destruction. It is critical to stay focused on the Lord, He is infallible and all wisdom resides in Him and Him alone. Since Satan is the god of this world we can expect deception and guile to be the prevalent state of mind of those who belong to him, which happens to be the majority of mankind, and more particularly it would seem the people and leaders of this nation.
By the numbers here is what we can expect to be the result of our continued rejection of almighty God and the blaspheming of His Holy Spirit.
The reprehensible national acquisitiveness and insatiable desire for wealth is a sin that has contributed to economic instability, and will be the cause of a complete socioeconomic collapse. This will precipitate a deprivation of food and famine; the depths of which will unleash a primal urge among the idiots of society to riot and rebel. Riots and race wars will bring down the government infrastructures of the cities and all order will collapse.
Man’s suggested remedy for an economic break down is to buy gold and other precious metals, men certainly cannot eat gold and the Bible states that in the days of complete chaos the people will cast their gold and silver into the streets.
The people of this nation collectively defy God and His justice, they flaunt their sins before the world and dare the Almighty to judge their nastiness. They have an inflated and false opinion of their own wisdom and knowledge and are conceited and empty of character. They subvert justice by rewarding wickedness and punishing the righteous , they call evil good and good evil, and after all of this they expect a righteous God to bless their nation. Their lip service and false and shallow worship will not suffice to save their lawless hides, God’s wrath is imminent.
“Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.” -Ezekiel 7:3-4

“Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come. An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come. The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains. Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations. And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.” -Ezekiel 7:5-9
