An Evil Season: The Masque of the Red Death
October 10th, 2010
As the Druidic Season of Halloween bears down upon us, to many the traditional time of celebrating the harvest, along with the mysteries of life and death, has lost much of its former appeal. This is most likely due to the fact that most of America has been living through a never-ending Samhein Festival of economic upheaval, financial distress and Legislative horror for over two harrowingly long years now.
It's as if a dark cloud, complete with lightening and clashing thunder, has stalled over the US and refuses to budge while releasing artificially induced economic horrors on a bizarrely regular schedule. We have seen unemployment increasing, yet again, a Fed that is now actually contemplating a manufactured ramping up of inflation, and a new healthcare law creating chaos on all fronts --along with American uneasiness over rate of taxation questions. In fact, and in keeping with the festival of horror atmosphere, even the US Government has donned "We now are Goth apparel" by apparently sending out over 89,000 stimulus checks to the dead people of America for a reported cost of $ 22 million dollars.
Now, while some might see this $ 22 million dollar "error" as mere happenstance, we think something else might, indeed, be at work. Remembering that both Obama and the Democrats seemed expert in getting out the "dead vote" in the last election, we wonder if, perhaps, their latest "alms for the dead program" is nothing more than a veiled attempt at hoping the dead will work their magic yet again in the upcoming November elections. Think about it, the dead are a perfect special interest group for the Democrats in that they use very little space, require no oxygen, have little if any carbon footprint, can't reproduce and overcrowd the planet and have been highly descriminated against in the past by life itself. Most importantly, they offer little if any hope for America's future--and are a stridently silent base, having no active memory at all--perfect Democratic subjects.
Another item of Political news that gave everyone a bit of a shiver was what occurred during Obama's October 6th, 2010 speech at the "Forbes Most Powerful Women" summit in Pittsburgh. In what many Americans took to be a very bad omen (just in time for Halloween) the Presidential Seal actually fell from the podium and clattered to the floor of its own mysterious accord, with Obama's reaction being: "Well, you all know who I am."
Funny Mr. President, and uncharacteristically quick for the Messianic Magpie, but the next burning question would have to be "bad omen for whom?" So, after a lengthy and painstaking bit of research, the answer finally came to us.
On August 5th, 1994 during a speech by President Clinton the Presidential seal dislodged and fell from his podium where it also clattered to the floor. Only a few months later, in November 1994, Clinton lost both the House and the Senate to the Republicans in a sweeping mandate that ushered in the Republican's contract with America and a time of unprecedented expansion and opportunity.
This was the only instance in American history where we could find of a Presidential Seal having fallen off of a podium during a President's appearance.
Incidentally, this item of history was mysteriously later removed--no joke-- from the website where we had originally found it, however, as indicated by the link, we did find other records documenting this event. Many thanks to the historical deleters of the revisionist website where we initially found the entry and kudos to their diligence in apparently monitoring every hit that comes in.
The Fifth Kind
That not being enough, at least the Chinese also seem to be suffering macabre, other-wordly phenomena parked over their country. According to reports, the Chinese have had to repeatedly suspend flights at a number of larger airports due to varied "unknown craft" repeatedly, if not boorishly, inserting themselves into Chinese air traffic patterns and totally interrupting flights for long periods of time according to ABC News and other outlets. It leads us to wonder what, exactly, the Chinese may have sold them that has gotten them all worked up? Could it be the dreaded Chinese Drywall or maybe more poison laced baby formula? Or perhaps the Chinese have unfairly tied the Yuan to some offworld currency sparking an otherworldy show of power while conducting an aerial protest.
Who knows? But the goings-on all over the place seem to be getting stranger and stranger as time marches forward, and bits of news here and there leech out.
We have the Honey Bee die-offs, supposedly caused by a virus; even stranger, we have Obama granting healthcare waivers to various companies and of course Unions, 29 at last count, because the great and wonderful Obamacare just isn't working out for them at all, after it was touted as being the greatest thing for America since sliced bread.
We also have over $ 160 million missing or undisclosed from the Stimulus record books. As to where those funds were spent is anybody's guess at this point--perhaps the Zombies or Obama's medical "Corpse men" got those funds as well under the new alms for the dead program. To this end, it would seem that our "newly Transparent Government" has quickly become very opaque in stark contrast to Obama's inaugural address.
The Tell-Tale Media
Even more amazing is the latest fact that White, middle-class Americans are turning away from the Democrat Party in droves, which prompts us to ask: "What took you so long?" Even while a recent poll shows racial tension increasing as if it were a deep and dark mystery. This one strange fact isn't a mystery at all to the discerning. If one were to think back over the past 19 months and recall the unending stream of invective flowing from the media, Obama and the Democrats over the Tea Party, Conservatives, Republicans or even anyone that disagreed with Obama's ideas for America--the one accusation which was leveled repeatedly was the word racist.
Did the Einsteins within the Media think that it was just really, really cool to level these ridiculous charges and that all the dissentors would simply shut-up in fear of the now meaningless accusation? Or did the Media simply not understand that falsely reporting phantom racism would automatically induce increasing racial tension within an already politically divided populace.?
This being another form of meaningless evil at work, no doubt, as wrought by our fearless leadership and their cronies. The malodorous designs of failure seem to now be issuing from every corner of the Authoritarian's self-inflicted wounds--much like the drainage of a severe infection that knows only aggression in its cycle.
As we are now beginning to see the new political landscape take shape, some experts are predicting that the Senate will go to the Republicans along with the House. When we look at the history of House and Senate elections their is one other stunning bit of history. In the entire US Timeline of one party rule in the House and the Senate, there have been only six occasions where the House has changed hands and gone to the opposing party--and in each case-- the Senate also followed suit and went to the opposing party along with the House, even when not expected.
Fascinatingly, the word "Democrat" seems now to be appropriately associated with the word Evil--even as it regards their own members. Currently many candidates of the Democratic party now find that they must play down the offensive "D" aside their names and play up the theoretical Conservative side of their respective ideologies if they are to have even the faintest hope of re-election. In fact, many Democrats who are seeking re-election are actually refusing to appear with their ideological leader, the President, while many other long-time members find that their election race percentage gaps are increasing--for the worse. The word Democrat is now being associated with Evil to many Americans? Think that's just a little bit much? If we consult with Mr.Merriam-Webster, here is what we find:
Now, morally reprehensible in the form of continuously cutting backroom deals, buying votes from various members, stopping at nothing to put forth measures that the American people were consistently howling mad about, unendingly lying about the outcomes of, say the Stimulus, the conflict in Afghanistan or even healthcare. For instance, when we look at the new healthcare law the facts put forth by many in industry, financial experts and even a majority of medical Doctors had warned both Obama, the Democrats and of course the entire populace about how the healthcare law was going to damage the best medical system in the world. Low and behold, we are already seeing the ravages of the healthcare makeover.
The costs are already spinning out of control with only a few facets of the plan having been brought to fruition, while many plans are pending cancellation due to increased costs that are unaffordable. Even while nearly half of the States are currently suing the Federal Government over the constitutionality of the Government's forcing individuals to buy healthcare. The Imputed bad character or conduct definition appears to be the hallmark of the "new Democrats" as much has been made of Pelosi's promising to "drain the swamp" while she has actually been filling it at a prodigious rate. So according to the first definition, we appear to be on solid ground.
