PLEASE READ THIS ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM.

PLEASE  READ THIS ALL  THE  WAY TO THE BOTTOM.
 by  Pam Geller

 

 
  Pamela  “Atlas” Geller began her publishing career at The New York Daily News  and subsequently took over operation of The New York Observer as  Associate Publisher.  She left The Observer after the birth of her fourth child, but remained involved in various projects including American Associates, Ben Gurion University and being Senior Vice-President Strategic Planning and Performance Evaluation at The Brandeis School.

 
  After  9/11, “Atlas” had the veil of oblivion violently lifted from her  consciousness and immersed herself in the education and understanding of  geopolitics, Islam, terror, foreign affairs and imminent threats the  mainstream media and the government wouldn’t cover or discuss.  To  wit:

I am a student of  history.  Professionally, I have written 15 books in six languages,  and have studied history all my life.  I think there is something  monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking  crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis.  Yes, these exist  but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only  now coming into a sharper  focus.

Something of  historic proportions is happening.  I can sense it because I know  how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it..  Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about 10 – 15 years.  The pace has dramatically quickened in the past  two.

We demanded and  then codified into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans  to people whom we knew could never pay back?  Why? We learned  recently that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real  oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months,  but  will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the  terms.   That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times  the $700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past  September.

Who has this  money?  Why do they have it?  Why are the terms unavailable to  us?  Who asked for it?  Who authorized it?  I thought  this was a government of “We the People,” who loaned our powers to our  elected leaders.  Apparently  not.

We  have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy.   Why?

We have  intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no  longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we  are worth preserving.  Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate.  Parents are not revolting,  teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back  mediocrity.   Why?

We have now  established the precedent of protesting every close election (now  violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that  it wants marriage to remain between one man and one woman.  Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?).  We have  corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to  write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream  Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a  banana republic.  To what  purpose?

Now our mortgage  industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major  industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse,  Social Security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire  government.  Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and know precisely what I am talking about.)  The list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.  It is potentially  1929 x 10.    And  we are at war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people  of the same religion who cannot wait to slit the throats of your  children if they have the opportunity to do  so.

And now we have  elected a man no one knows anything about, who has never run so much as  a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla, Alaska.  All of  his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen  fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip,  is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak  about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense  force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No?  Oh, of course.  The media would never play that for you  over and over and then demand he answer it.  Sarah Palin’s pregnant  daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is more  important.)

Mr. Obama’s  winning platform can be boiled down to one word: Change….radical  change.   Why?

I have never been  so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.  This man  campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever  done in his professional life.  In my assessment, Obama will divide  us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the  pieces into a new and different power structure.  Change is indeed  coming.  And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.

And that is only  the beginning.

I thought I would  never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral German felt in the  mid-1930s.  In those times, the savior was a former smooth-talking  rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next  to nothing.  What they did know was that he was associated with  groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they  disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great  oratory and promises.  Economic times were tough, people were  losing jobs, and he was a great speaker.  And he smiled and waved a lot.  And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for  fear that his “brown shirts” would bully them into  submission.

And then he was  duly elected to office, with a full-throttled economic crisis at hand  [the Great Depression].  Slowly but surely he seized the controls  of government power, department by department, person by person,  bureaucracy by  bureaucracy.   The kids joined a Youth Movement in his name, where they were taught  what to think.  How did he get the people on his side?  He  did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless, and  goodies for the military-industrial  complex.   He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe, and across the  world.

He did it with a  compliant media – Did you know  that?  And he  did this all in the name of justice and…change.  And the people  surely got what they voted for.  (Look it up if you think I am  exaggerating.)  Read your history books.  Many people objected  in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and made fun  of.  When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late  1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet  Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy  troublemaker.  He was right,  though.

Don’t forget that  Germany was the most educated, cultured country in Europe.  It was  full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and  universities.  And in less than six years – a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency – it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.  All with the best of intentions, of course.  The road to Hell is paved with  them.

As a practical  thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice:   I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me  (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history  is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope  I am wrong, close my eyes, have another latte and ignore what is  transpiring around  me.

Some people scoff  at me; others laugh or think I am foolish, naive, or both.  Perhaps  I am.  But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and  tell them exactly what I believe – and why I believe it.  I pray I  am wrong.  But, I do not think I  am.

Since  many of you enjoy senior citizen status or will sometime in the not too  distant future, I thought you might be interested in this information.

IN GOD WE  TRUST

Everybody that is  on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close, or  knows somebody that  is.

Most of you know  by now that the Senate version (at least) of the “stimulus” bill  includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior  citizens.  The author of this part of the bill, former senator and  tax evader, Tom Daschle, was credited today by Bloomberg with the  following  statement.

Bloomberg:   “Daschle says health-care reform will not be pain free. Seniors should  be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of  treating them.”

If this does not  sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that Senators and Congressmen  have their own healthcare plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay  which they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives and are not  subject to this new law if it  passes.

Please use the  power of the Internet to get this message out.  Talk it up at the  grassroots level.  We have an election coming up in one year and  nine months.  We have the ability to address and reverse the dangerous direction the Obama administration and its allies have begun and in the interim, we can make our voices heard!  Let’s do  it!

If you  disagree, don’t do anything

Monks

Some monks were running low on funds, but didn’t want to close up their monastery. After much consideration, they decided to start selling the flowers they grew. Soon after opening up shop, business boomed, much to their delight. They had plenty of cash now for burlap and oatmeal and all the good things monks need. Unfortunately, their town already HAD a flower shop. The disgruntled owner of the rival store tried everything — having discount sales, spreading slander about the monks, and even poisoning the monks’ flower beds. Unfortunately, they’d been heavenly blessed, and nothing could stop their thriving little business venture. Finally, the rival shop owner sought out a very sinister man named Hugh. No one knew his last name, just that he always got the job done, no questions asked. After the appropriate amount of money had changed hands, Hugh went over to the friars’ place, thoroughly beat the hell out of them, and then destroyed their flower beds. The next day, the monks promptly boarded up the windows and closed their shop permanently, thus proving that Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.
