“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.” Thomas Jefferson knew a few things about liberty and tyranny and that freedom thing. Funny, whenever T-Jeff’s quoted I can see the eyes roll, emblematic and consistent with a complete dissociation from reality and history. And as Tolstoy, that whacky dude opined, history would be a wonderful thing if only it were true. (I’m a veritable font of quotes today.)
I feel as though I’m the lone voice of encouragement to the entrenched and embedded and bivouaced teams of citizens of #OccupyWallStreet. Because on cue, the braindead sockpuppet obeisant Ted Baxter media will focus on the protestors and marchers as silly, deluded and idealistic kids caught in some misguided and misdirected amorphous protest. You can really see it when the media monkeys focus in on the least coherent and intelligible protestor as though they’re the most representative of the lot.
The professional left are double agents for an Obama reelection machine fueled and funded by Wall Street zombie banksters, globalist asset-strippers and kleptocrats. Ain’t that something? Throw into the mix the bogus and counterfeit Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon (for reasons I’ve yet to figure) and the pathologically, organically and criminally vague Roseanne Barr who provided the following. “I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay… back anything over 100 million in personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of 100 million dollars and if they’re unable to live on that amount then they should go to the reeducation camps, and if that doesn’t help, then be beheaded.” What the hell does that mean? Who gave this certifiable inarticulate loon a mic? Wait, I think I know.
The Spirit of ’76 has been confused with the French Revolution. But it makes no never mind (as they say in Chipley). In any event the spirit of the First Amendment is being diluted by a group of folks who are too bothered to care and too scared to report.
