Saturday Tab Clearing

Via IOTW - Without getting too excited, it is nice to see some predicting a Republican-controlled Senate this November.

IOTW (Cardigan) - Roll Call lists the most vulnerable Senators up for re-election
Cave News - Web newspaper Roll Call lists the most vulnerable Senators up for re-election
IOTW (Dr. Tar - source of image above) - Three Down, Three to Go
MRC - CBS Analyst: Three Senate Seats Are ‘Gone’ For Democrats

Shocking news that the Cubans are going for the lowest hanging fruit:

FreeBeacon - FBI: Cuban Intelligence Aggressively Recruiting Leftist American Academics as Spies, Influence Agents

Communists hate a challenge.

Speaking of Communists, Comrade Captain Capitalism points us to this post by a former feminist:

FrontPageMag - Marxist Feminism’s Ruined Lives
“Why are we here today?” she asked.
“To make revolution,” they answered.
“What kind of revolution?” she replied.
“The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted.
“And how do we make Cultural Revolution?” she demanded.
By destroying the American family!” they answered.
“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.
By destroying the American Patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.
“And how do we destroy the American Patriarch?” she replied.
“By taking away his power!”
“How do we do that?”
By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.
“How can we destroy monogamy?”

Their answer left me dumbstruck, breathless, disbelieving my ears.  Was I on planet earth?  Who were these people?

By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution and homosexuality!” they resounded.
Allow me to beat this dead horse again:

Communism cannot take hold until both fathers and God are replaced by government.  (See the inner-city black community)

When someone asks you to dilute your family or religious values, they are really inviting you to join the Communist Party.

Another item shared from Captain Capitalism:  Newspeak hits the St. Louis Fed with their latest redefinition of "saving."

Rural Revolution - It's called SAVING 

Why the bad economy?  It is your fault for "hoarding" your money instead of spending it!  The absence of money velocity is the reason for the doldrums today.  People save hoard money when they are not confident about the future.  When conditions seem uncertain.  When "Hope and Change" wins and substance loses.
In days past, this "hoarding" of money would be termed a "savings account" and every child from five years old and up was encouraged to have one. Smart adults socked away (oops, "hoarded") a percentage of their income for rainy days, emergencies, and retirement. But now that's bad! Baaaad!

The unspoken implication, of course, is those greedy evil middle-class Americans who insist that it's wise to have a cash reserve Just In Case are the ones responsible for taking down the economy by "slowing the velocity of money." In case you didn't get the point, the article added, "The reason that inflation hasn't kept up with gains in the money supply simply has been that people are sitting on cash rather than spending it." 
Yep.  ZERO confidence in the system.  ZERO confidence in the "leaders."

This is a great opportunity to post a current photo of our Obama Cuss Jar, topped with the ever-furry always-sexy Commie Obama Hat!  Winter is coming...

Four and a half minutes of North Korean propaganda for your entertainment.

Did you realize just how much we are suffering here in the States?
