IS AMERICA'S ONLY HOPE SOMEONE WHO ISN'T WHITE? Print E-mail
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

Please tell me you're not so into masochism that you subjected yourself to watching Zero's latest Ode to Fascism on Tuesday night (2/12).

The slightest attempt to make the tiniest-eensiest reduction in federalie spending growth is depicted by the Fascist-in-Chief as "heartless," "brutal," and "savage."  CommieMedia rags like the LA Times always without exception call any reduction in spending growth a "cut" that is "axeing," "slicing", and "slashing" government programs that women and children couldn't survive and will die without.

The dreaded Sequester Monster scaring everyone cuts nothing (except Defense of course).  It merely marginally reduces automatic increases in federalie budgets.  This is called The Budget Baseline Con.  Here's a chart by CATO showing sequestration is a miniscule slowdown of increasing trillion-dollar deficits.

So... is there no hope?  No hope that we can rescue our freedom from the maw of Leviathan?  It's not just that our Constitution has been trashed.  It's that America is no longer a democracy.  It is a mafiacracy like Putin's Russia or Chavez's Venezuela.  Democrats from Zero to the punk who stole Allen West's seat did not get honestly elected last November.  Democrats win by acting on Stalin's dictum, "It's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes." 

We can't get out of this, we can't aspire to a solution until we understand the basic reason and cause for how we got into this tragedy in the first place.

OBAMA IS OBSOLETE Print E-mail

Zero's fascist seizure of America's healthcare system is kicking into high gear.  On Tuesday (2/05), the CBO - Congressional Budget Office - issued its updated budget and economic forecast.

Zerocare, the CBO says, will now cost $233 billion more than previously estimated, and will surge well over $1 trillion for the next 10 years.  Seven million workers will lose their employer-paid health coverage.  In addition, one of the more lethally noxious consequences of Zerocare is its enabling of an enormous expansion of power by the Federal Death Agency - the FDA. 

The FDA is the perfect example of the ball-and-chain the Federalie Fascists place around the economy.  The "safety and efficacy" requirements of the FDA now take an average of 12 years and between 1 and 4 billion dollars for a pharmaceutical company to gain approval to bring one new chemical entity drug to market.

Here's how insanely obsolete this is.  You've heard of Moore's Law, right?  Back in 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors on integrated circuits would expand exponentially, doubling every two years or less - and it has ever since.

So - here we go.  Strap yourself in for a ride in a rocket sled.  Moore's Law has come to biology.

BOB KABOB AND SNUFFY JACK Print E-mail

Col. Robert K. Brown, Founder, Publisher and Editor of Soldier of Fortune Magazine, is writing his memoirs.  It's about time, as Bob turned 80 a couple of months ago.

Bob and I have been good friends since 1977, when we met as guests on the Merv Griffin Show and instantly hit it off.  The most memorable adventure we had together was in Afghanistan with the Mujahidin fighting the Soviets.  That was in 1988, and Bob asked me to recount it for his book.  I thought I'd share it with you.

Early on in the Reagan Presidency, I began working with my buddy from our Youth For Reagan days (Reagan's original campaign for California governor in 1966), Dana Rohrabacher and other friends in the White House, such as Constantine Menges on the National Security Council, on a strategy that became known as The Reagan Doctrine.  (That wasn't our name for it - we just called it FTC... Foil the Commies, or something like that.)

My role was to "go inside" captured guerrilla-held territory in those Soviet colonies where anti-Soviet insurgencies had emerged, such as the Contras in Nicaragua, UNITA in Angola, RENAMO in Mozambique, the EPLF/TPLF in Ethiopia, the KPNLF in Cambodia, the Hmong in Laos, and most of all, the various groups of Muj in Afghanistan.

I did this all through the 80s, and Dana and I often talked of his going inside with me at some time.  His chance came after he left the White House to run for Congress in his California home town district, and got elected.  He celebrated by coming with me and Bob, who I'd been promising to take inside as well.

We convened in mid-November, 1988, at Green's Hotel in Peshawar, Pakistan.

IS TEXAS AMERICA'S HOPE FOR THE FUTURE? Print E-mail

Papeete, Tahiti.  Yesterday (1/21), at the very moment Zero was being sworn in to his stolen second term and delivering a speech so bad even WaPo's premier liberal columnist panned it as "flat, partisan, and pedestrian," I was on a shark dive off a remote French Polynesian island.

We were 70 feet down and surrounded by a half dozen ten-foot long lemon sharks sporting impressive arrays of knife-sharp teeth.  But they were after the multitude of schools of brightly colored tropical reef fish all around us, searching for those whose abnormal swimming (sensed by electroreceptors in their head) meant easy prey.

I wanted no part of the irretrievably disgusting spectacle in Washington and was happy to be as far away and as oblivious to it as possible.  When you're diving, you are totally in the moment.  You are in a completely different universe of incomparable beauty, and while you are in it, the world of dry land and all that is happening there, does not exist.  Especially if very large sharks are swimming very close to you.

It was only when I got here today and learned of the spectacle in DC that it occurred to me Americans are surrounded by fascist sharks like Zero and his thugs.  Many of them will be easy prey.  How do we make sure we are not?

WHAT TO READ Print E-mail

TTPers are readers and thinkers.  A number of you have asked what I've been reading lately.  I thought that now would be a good time, as we start a new year, to answer.  It's also a chance to take a break from the general insanity of current events.

What follows is not advice for you.  Your interests are specifically yours, and none of these books may ring your bell.  But they all rang mine to various degrees.  There are too many to provide reviews.  The link for each is to the listing on Amazon containing a multitude of comments and quotes.

The list here is the books I read in 2012.  Most of them, I bought the Kindle version and read them on my iPad.  I really recommend this.

Yet I also re-read favorites ensconced in my library - such as Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics (the link is to the Kindle edition, at $4.27). Also on Kindle now is Ludwig von Mises' compact classic, The Anti-Capitalistic Mentality.  This should be required reading for every conservative.

About once a decade I complete Will Durant's entire The Story of Civilization.  This takes some time, as it's eleven volumes, 10,000 pages, and four million words.  I've had the set in my library for 40 years, and last year I finished it once again.  Amazon has The Story of Civilization (11 Volume Set) in hardcover for $439 - but the Kindle edition is only $12.74 per volume.

OK, so here we go - one year's reading.  I think you'll find at least some things here that will intrigue you.  And now, please tell us what your favorite books are on the Forum!
