Obama Uber Alles

February 21, 2009

HOW prescient was Jello Biafra when he penned the lyrics to California Uber Alles nearly 30 years ago. Biafra was well aware of the possibility of liberal policies veering into authoritarianism and fascism which is precisely the precipice where we find ourselves today.

SO many promises that formed President Obama’s platform have been broken. Hope has been replaced with despair and as for change – all that’s changed is the party identification. From his appointment of hacks from previous administrations to his pledge of openness to the public of five days to review all bills (the stimulus was forced into law with no review period, just like Lilly Ledbetter). But because he is not the hated Bush, the media and most of the population just give him a pass for these transgressions. Where the former administration had Limbaugh and Hannity to rally the masses, the new one has Maddow and Olbermann to blindly lead them off the cliff. There are some that claim this is by design; that there is one, New World Order of bankers that needed former President Bush for a polarizing figure, throwing up President Obama as an agent of change and hope will let him complete their ultimate take over. I wish it were that easy and clear cut. But I don’t think that there is any one group in control and that the world is bisected into two halves: those with an agenda and some power and influence to push it and the rest of us to subject. Several competing global interests jockeying for control; some trying to maintain the status quo and all interested in maintaining what power they may have. From the Pentagon to the White House; the Central Banks to the House and Senate, none of these groups on the global scene care about you. You’re only so much chattel to their ends of power and money. This is your Democratic party. This is your Republican party. This is your union. This is ACORN. These are empty shams.

Where is the tipping point?

We need our own Velvet Revolution; general strikes and the masses, white and black, immigrant and naturalized, taking to the streets and establishing Our New Order. A new system with a myriad of parties to represent views on real issues with real agendas and not those issues leveraged to waste peoples time and take their focus away from what is going on in Washington. Do you really think that there is a choice? We’re really no better of then Eastern Europe was – our two party system is not really two distinct choices. They both serve to extend globalism at the expense of our freedom, both financial and personal. They are the flipsides of the same coin. They are worthless and should no longer exist. Do people even understand what it means to be free anymore, or have all of the stupid shit that we surround ourselves with replaced it?

It is true that in a month the President cannot do much to turn around the current state of the economy. But more bailouts of banks and corporations will not help it. A tax break of $13 dollars a week will not help it. Why not a one time payment of $50,000 to ALL tax payers, regardless of income? For me, I could payoff all of my debt, dump more money on what I own on my house and still have money left over to ‘stimulate’ the economy. Or why not finance the creation of small scale, JiT manufacturing in the US? A redefinition and implementation of the Arts and Crafts movement that brings the means of production to individuals? Until we have a serious manufacturing component across a broad product spectrum, we’ll always be behind the 8 ball. Our current economy is a sham, composed of services and no real value. Why not nearly a trillion dollars to those ends?

Will the tipping point be paying for someone’s mortgage who should have never owned a house, but thanks to the Community Revitalization Act and unnaturally low interest rates by the Federal Reserve, there headache has become our collective nightmare?

Or will it be if the Presidents recently appointed Transportation Secretary, Ray LaHood, drops gas taxes and charges everyone by the mile, an idea that a Pennsylvania politician is talking about?

One cannot even discuss the environmental policies because that topic has turned into a near religion where any questioning of the dogma marks the inquisitive as a heretic. For eight years, we always heard about the oil man in the Whitehouse, but what about the former VP who made a film to push his agenda and now influence the current administrations policy? He’s a cap and trade guy and so he has trillions to gain. Why no press on the fact that Al Gore is the founder and chairman of London based Generation Investment Management, a private equity firm that invests in companies that are going green. This isn’t a conflict worth discussing?

The next few years will be really interesting and I hope people do not let their justifiable contempt for former President Bush blind the reality of how bad the Obama administration is shaping up to be.
