I'm not supposed to be doing this. "This" being whatever I'm doing now. I had a life and it got derailed by cultism, and now I'm stuck with this,…thing I cope with - that passes for my life - but I know better.
My life will never be the same.
This angst is what most don't talk about when talking about cultism. They're so concerned about the cult's freedom, always with the cult's concerns, but what it takes from the unwilling?
If it comes up, I've never heard it.
About 70% of the American deficit is “bought” directly or through the banking system by the Treasury’s 100% subsidiary, the Federal Reserve, and the minimal interest paid on it is recycled back through the Federal Reserve to the Treasury, so the cost of borrowing is zero. It is the ultimate Ponzi scheme, the fiscal nirvana of endless, mountainous debt, rendered easily bearable because it doesn’t cost anything. It is a fraud, a mirage. It all possesses the hypnotic allure of the Gotterdammerung — as the Gods ascend to a burning Valhalla. If this administration is re-elected, Canada, as it has for the entire mighty spectacle of the inexorable rise of the United States, will have the ring-side seat for a disaster. Prudent, hesitant Canada, ran 14 federal government surpluses in a row. We are the pigs in the brick house — it isn’t a heroic position, neither daring nor stylish, but Canadians are peering through the portals of their stout solid home, transfixed and astonished.
The fact that Willard M. Romney is still running almost even in the polls despite his demiurgic implausibility as a candidate, afflicted by a one-person pandemic of foot-in-mouth disease, illustrates the concern of the American voters. Either Romney lucks through and numerate sanity starts to return to American public life, or the most self-destructively incompetent regime since James Buchanan brought on the Civil War, will come back and stoke up a truly spectacular inferno that will purify America in a mighty economic Jonestown. There will be no more tugging at a trouser leg from Canada — either a comradely pat on the back, or a neighbourly blast with a fire extinguisher, but this operatic crescendo can’t continue for one more full act.
Do you see the cultism? Here, let me yell it out for you:
"The ultimate Ponzi scheme."
"It is a fraud, a mirage."
"The hypnotic allure of the Gotterdammerung."
"The ring-side seat for a disaster."
"Willard M. Romney is still running almost even in the polls despite his demiurgic implausibility as a candidate." ("Demiurgic" is a word from Gnosticism.)
And oh - that suicide study? I should mention I found it while looking at Instapundit:
That, too, always makes me want to die a little,...
Meh, except that "prudent" Canada is full of shit, maybe moreso than us...they're like Europe Northwest: maybe a little more prudent with cash, but still a socialist system with some huge welfare/police nanny state problems (like their healthcare -- and they are super into the homeopathic stuff up there, courtesy of both of their coasts and Toronto), a nasty issue with racism which they refuse to address honestly, and...they got to be "prudent" because they've been sheltering under the safe harbor of our military, which has saved them a heck of a lot of money, freaking hypocrites.ReplyDelete
I hope that after we crash and burn Greenland invades them.
