Tuesday Tab Clearing

Comrade Diogenes Sarcastica reacts to the recent muslim attack in France with her own European experience:
One day, as a young teenager shopping with my mother, two of these dark haired men touched me inappropriately. My mother turned and slapped one of the men in the face. He began yelling words I did not understand and knocked my mother to the ground.

. . . when I see scenes of muslims men in the news, I recognize the same soulless evil I saw that day in the market.
Bill Buppert at ZeroGov shows that Libertarians can be right when it comes to exposing the similarities between Communism and the current operation in DC:  Will the Last Capitalist Please Turn Off the Lights When You Leave…
I have often thought that to be a Communist at the beginning of the twentieth century was possibly an intellectually defensible position looking at the scant history of the movement in power and practice yet one hundred years later this extreme form of collectivism should be universally reviled and is intellectually and morally indefensible; and here in 2009, not only are the same miserable failures and barbaric practices heralded but endorsed by no less than the President of this decaying country known as America.

Comrade and hat owner, Googie, converts a Barry Manilow classic at ATRS.  Click over to see the full lyrics.
I’ll write the laws that make the people cringe
I’ll write the laws because I can, you see?
I’ll write the laws that over vilify
I’ll write the laws, I’ll write the laws
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit shares an update on the strength of our enemies - since our dear leader was elected:
. . . four-star General Jack Keane told Congress that al-Qaeda has “grown fourfold in the last five years.

[He said] “our policies have failed.”
Comrade Kerodin at III Percent Patriots shares an observation from a recent trip about America's general decline in useful skills and strong work ethic:  Plumbing, as to Third World America...
In the last two places we crashed for the night - national hotel/motel chains - at least one plumbing fixture was plumbed incorrectly.  This may not seem like a big deal.  But consider this - when national chains hire 'professionals' to do work, and those professionals either have not been taught the basics of their trade, or worse, perhaps know the basics but choose not to do the job properly, consider the devolution of standards that is on display.

This post isn't big-think.  It is simply observations and conclusions over many years that support a broader narrative.  America is devolving because the vast majority of people living among us no longer aspire to standards of a first world nation.  Pride and self respect are rapidly losing their place in society among our Countrymen.  Entropy is on display.

You won't find anything in the MSM about the goings-on in the Venezuelan worker's paradise.  The new media, however, is keeping track of the glorious revolution there, and there are some good lessons to be learned.  Specifically, stores are looted first, then delivery trucks.  An informed looter will target the trucks when the masses target the stores. WZ has the story:  Robbers Target Food Delivery Trucks In Shortage-Hit Venezuela.
Robbers and looters are targeting trucks carrying food across Venezuela in another sign of worsening shortages that have turned basics like flour and chicken into coveted booty.

Has anyone noticed that the nation’s leftist socialists are using the very same tactic with Islamic Terrorists [ISIS] as they incessantly use with the Nazis and other Socialists?

Talk to any of the Leftist on the national socialist scene and they will go incandescent if you accurately attribute that the Nazi were socialists.

It’s part of their freaking name for Pete’s sake: German Nationalsozialistische [deutsche Arbeiter-Partei] (National SOCIALIST [German Workers' Party])

But that doesn’t deter leftists from denying reality.

They will also deny that the USSR was Socialist… Even though THAT is also in their very name: Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics.

They’ve also tried out their Big Lie on North Korea:

BBC Documentary: North Korea isn’t really communist, it’s ‘far-right’

Now, we're seeing the same tactic played out with Islamic Terrorists – group will have the word Islamic in their very name and STILL Obama and his merry band of communists will deny flat out that they are ‘Islamic’.

Just what is wrong with those people that they insist on denying reality?
