Disillusionment and Decline

Disillusionment, Decline, Malaise, Angst, Unease, Despair, Apathy.

Oh, Hi Comrades!

Just practicing some words that we haven't used in a while.

Now everybody is using them.

We have liberal friends and neighbors, and even among them there is a growing sense of decline.

While they no doubt blame Bush or choose to not affix blame, the consensus is that things will remain bleak or decline further.  Liberties.  Careers.  Property values and investments.  Quality of life.  Taxes.

We know Obama voters who are now getting into prepping.  How depressing.

And what about the news that people are cashing out their retirement accounts?  CBS:
A new national study shows that too many of us are cashing out 401(k) accounts to pay bills.

Today's Washington Post, via Drudge:
The afterglow of President Obama’s reelection and inauguration appears to have vanished as increasingly negative views among Americans about his stewardship of the economy have forced his public approval rating back down to the 50 percent mark...
But that just speaks to the opinions of liberals.

What are those right-wing bitter-clingingers thinking?

Comrade Mr B., a hat owner, points us to this article about coming FBI raids against 'patriot groups' at blogroll member, Knuckledraggin:
According to them, NOBODY (including federal agents present) planned on going along with this and many even talked about how this will ignite a war.
In this current decline climate, we'd suspect right-wingers would disagree.

We'd suspect right-wingers will assume that the government employees WILL go along with orders to raid 'patriot groups' in WY and OH - once they understand their job is on the line.

We're going to sit this one out.  No opinions from us.  But, if FBI agent Bolo wants to contact us to clarify this story, our email address is at the top left.  He'd find us very open to another explanation for the 24 armored personnel carriers, 20 command trailers, and his Monday all-staff meeting.

Of course, if we're on Col Bolo's list, you'll understand why Ushanka goes silent.

And be sure to visit our Library and Cinema sections at the left.  There are many good resources there that will teach you how to behave when you get the knock on the door.
