Nineteen Eighty-Four In 2010

For the last two years, I have been warning anyone who would listen that we are on the verge of having an Ingsoc-like federal government. For the last two years, I've been told to up my meds and go back to therapy by everyone else. There are even some Righties who think I've gone batshit crazy. The last two years have been rather lonely. Even the Midterm Massacre brought me no joy, because in my heart of hearts, I know that the Massacre is only delaying the inevitable.

Our county is in deep, deep trouble.

We have a federal government that wants to decide what we're allowed to eat with the upcoming S.510, Food Safety Modernization Act. (Thanks alot, Little Dickie Durbin!) We have a federal government that pretends like the Fourth Amendment no longer matters and has decided to grope small children and make breast cancer survivors remove their prosthetic breasts all in the name of "national security". We have a federal government that wants to make you buy health insurance or risk a fine or prison time. We have a federal government that wants to scramble your cell phone while you're in YOUR car. Imperial Senator Jay Rockefeller (S-WV) wants political commentary taken off TV, and last, but certainly not least when listing the dangers to our Republic, we have dozens of UNELECTED czars running around making policy and answering to no one.

Our government is turning Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness into an Orwellian parody. Quite frankly, if this keeps up, there will be a very ugly breaking point.

Don't get me wrong and let me stop the dorks at Media Matters dead in their tracks. I'm not promoting violence. The Tea Party is not promoting violence. Neither is Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, or Sean Hannity. However, there is a breaking point. I don't know what that breaking point is, but there is certainly a breaking point. Maybe it will be an irate father who watched an over-zealous TSA agent give his 10-year old daughter an enhanced pat down. Perhaps it will be someone who is being hauled off to jail for refusing to pay the Obamacare fine. Maybe, just maybe, it will be an enraged Greek who can't have feta cheese for his gyro. (Yes, when Dickie Durbin's monster becomes law, raw milk which is used to make feta cheese, will be against the law.) When that breaking point is reached, it won't be pretty.

When that moment finally comes (and I honest to God hope it never does) the big, stupid animal that is our federal government will do what it does best besides expand: oppress. Is that so far fetched ? Remember Ruby Ridge ? Waco ? Remember when Chairman Obama said this ? :


"We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."


Nineteen Eighty-Four in 2010 is on its way....

God help us all.
