Now What?

 On Tuesday, when the Republican Party and its Tea Party chump-proxies re-conquer the sin-drenched bizarro universe of the US congress, they'll have to re-assume ownership of the stickiest web of frauds and swindles ever run in human history - and chances are the victory will blow up in their supernaturally suntanned, Botox-smoothed faces.      X

XX But don't cry for John Boehner, Barack Obama.     

The President and his Democrats may have inherited this clusterf-ck from the feckless George Bush but they flubbed every chance to mitigate any part of it, ranging from their failure to restore the rule of law in banking (by prosecuting the executives of major banks who oversaw the systematic swindle), to mis-directing our dwindling resources toward ends (such as "shovel-ready" new super-highways) that won't promote a credible future for this society, to misleading the public in the fantasy that alt-energy will offset the disruptions of peak oil (and allow us to keep running suburbia, the US Military, and WalMart by other means).     

XXX It's really too late for both parties. They're unreformable. They've squandered their legitimacy just as the US enters the fat heart of the long emergency. Neither of them have a plan, or even a single idea that isn't a dodge or a grift. Both parties tout a "recovery" that is just a cover story for accounting chicanery and statistical lies aimed at concealing the criminally-engineered national bankruptcy that they presided over in split shifts. Both parties are overwhelmingly made up of bagmen for the companies that looted America. the rest is here:

You really don't understand the concept of a subject line for a blog post, do you.

This one could have simply been called "Now What?"

The problem is not that they vote, its that they vote like mindless drones thoroughly brainwashed by the mass media, making their voting wholly ineffective.  Now if the American people actually knew how to think for themselves...

It is a little early to be making absurd presumptive statements to this effect. The shear action of castrating the momentum of this communist regime is in itself assurance that the American people do know how to think for themselves. Give them a few days to clear the stench of the ink from the federal reserve presses out of their noses and see how fast the subpoena's start to fly into the white house.

To lower unemployment and less government intrusion...
