If this does not scare you I don't know what will.

Prophesy or deja vu?

By Pat Dollard (OK, just another "conservative")

I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in six
languages, and have studied it 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 ten — fifteen years. The pace
has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make
massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learn just days ago 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 ten. 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.


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.

And 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 nex
t 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. Conservative "losers"
read it right now.

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, 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
by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring 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.

I do not think I am.

This historical parallel game is easy and so much fun! Hitler had brownshirts that roughed up those who disagree--Obama does too, in that I think the media is biased in favor of him. Which is pretty exactly like sending thugs out to physically attack people.

SIGH!! Here we go again w/the comparisons of Obama to Hitler. The righties will stoop at nothing to maintain the riches & obscene wealth of their overlords.

The disingenuousness of this b.s. would be funny if it wasn't so blatanly appalling: "as a practical thinker... not prone to emotional decisions"... NOT.

Really at a time as difficult as this is globally, this kind of incendiary $hit is growing increasingly disturbing; it certainly does no one any good.

Wake up, sheeple! This is not a time to play games. Let's all roll up our sleeves and work together to solve problems (yeah, wishful thinking on my part).

And P.S. it was Grandpa Bush who loved Hitler and worked willingly with the Nazi's b/c it enriched his coffers. I seriously doubt that either of Obama's grandfathers did the same.

Wow, this is rich.

So Obama is a perfect storm of Marxist Fascism about whom people know nothing and who has never managed anything in his life.

Hey "student of history?"

When Obama declares himself president for life, outlaws all other political parties, bans everything except NPR, starts building prison camps in Alaska, purges the joint chiefs of staff, executes the Bush family, and announces a five year plan to abolish capital, nationalize all major industries and collectivize the entire Midwest into self-sufficient peasant communes, THEN you can call him a Marxist.

When Obama triples military spending, extends American citizenship to the racially defined ethnic "American" identity, appeals to the concept of a "greater America" including Canada, argues for an American "living space" in Mexico, begins a policy of involuntary euthanasia, bans abortion, picks a fight with Russia, THEN you can call him fascist.

Until then, STFU.

Also, last I checked, Dollar hadn't written a single book in any language. Thanks RW noise machine!

Obama? Who? Never heard of him!
Stimulus plan? For whom? Don't know!
McDonald's? A restaurant? I've never seen one!

In eighth grade, I had to pass a test on the Constitution to graduate.

On top of all of this hogwash is also the notion that BHO "ran nothing, not even a Dairy Queen..." which is much LESS than what the GRIFTAH from Wasilla did.

What about his work w/Acorn? What about being Editor of the Harvard Law Review? Oh yeah: nothing to see here, keep moving.

Plus, WHY has BHO had to run on a platform of CHANGE? And look for ways to offer jobs to people???? Thanks to the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate, everyone has lost their jobs, that's why.

But oh I see: let's BLAME everything on BHO and not hold anyone on the right accountable for everything.

So tired of this muck..... and no real solutions to anything, just blame, bullying and name calling. sickening.

"So tired of this muck..... and no real solutions to anything, just blame, bullying and name calling. sickening."

Yep. I give up. It isn't ever going to change with these people. I just try and keep my distance. It would be one thing if they would keep their idiotic opinions to themselves....but they just can't help foisting their garbage on everyone else. For example, there seems to ALWAYS be a right wing troll on every discussion board who just can't help but post something insane. Anyway...I just stay away and don't waste my breath anymore...that includes my family members. I just delete the forewards and don't read them.

According to Wikipedia, Pat Dollard isn't a professor or instructor anywhere, he's a filmmaker. No mention of any books published. No mention of any foreign languages spoken. Dollard's own website is too vile just in it's Google blurb for me to visit it.

Anonymous said...

Amazon has no books by Pat Dollard in any language. A Google search on "Pat Dollard Book" brings up nothing indicating he's ever written a book. Fail.

"just try to stay away from them"

Yes, me too, but sadly, we also HAVE to deal w/them in some sort of way. These people have been brainwashed to the max, and therefore, they tend to vote and vote as they're told.

While staying as far away from them on a daily basis is a good idea, we must stay informed, have a basic idea of what they're saying and doing, and then address reality as best we can and vote accordingly.

For my part, I am increasingly frightend (literally) by how bat$h*t crazy my "religionist" family has become. They no longer make any sense whatsover, and their self-centered/serving narcissism would be, uh, "interesting" to behold from a sociological perspective... except that bc of their political power THEY have bascially brought our once great nation to the brink (and possibly beyond) of utter disaster.

NOW they are FREAKING OUT bc they perceive - wah wah wah (like temper tantrum throwing todlers) - that their richistan lifestyles (based on out of control credit card spending but endorsed by their churches that tell them endlessly that they DESERVE to be rich) are no longer viable.

My family was never that wealthy, but my siblings have the most amazing sense of entitlement and they don't care who they step on (as they rush out of their megachurch) to get "theirs."

Ugh... but one has to be informed and keep encouraging those based more in reality to vote accordingly... I don't really know what else to do.

Wow. That is so totally not what happened.

Banks didn't loan money to people who couldn't pay it back because they were required to do so by law. They did it because they made an absolute FORTUNE packaging those loans up, buying an AAA rating for them, and passing the risk on to someone else. (In one article they interviewed an independent broker who resold loans - he was making over $100,000 a month before it all blew up.)

It's like talking to a wall. It's too maddening to be around them--so I prefer to take the zen approach and put them out of mind. I can take some of my family members ok one on one---but I'm not putting up with their collective idiocy anymore. I wonder if it even dawns on them why I'm not coming to the Easter gathering this year. Probably not....that would take too much insight.
