Are the guillotines being sharpened?”
I’ve been seeing a lot of references to the French Revolution in the blogospere this past week. And for good reason…The disconnect between the rulers and the ruled, especially in Europe and the United States, has not been so total in centuries.
The situation in the Old World is precarious enough as it is but what do you think is likely to happen in the U.S.whose debt is about to top 13 TRILLION dollars while 32 states are, at this very moment, technically bankrupt; whose pension and health entitlements are grotesquely underfunded; whose economy, despite TRILLIONS in State support is at serious risk of tipping back into recession and whose entire southern coast is in the midst of what is likely the greatest man-made disaster since Chernobyl all the while arrogant “Masters of the Universe” on Wall Street pay themselves record bonuses in the BILLIONS!!??
All this in a Nation born of revolution where the right to bear arms and form militia is entrenched in the Constitution as a safeguard against the very tyranny that is forcing the country to its knees!?
Remember that the bloodiest War ever fought my Americans was their own Civil War which took 600 000 lives. I am astounded that given the shocking degree of ineptitude and outright criminality that permeates affairs across all levels of leadership in the U.S. that civil unrest has yet to explode onto the streets of Washington and New York. I fear that the anger and frustration building up will be horribly destructive once it boils to the surface and will innevitably pit Americans against their law enforcement agencies. If a single American is killed in an unfortunate “Kent State” moment all Hell is likely to break loose.
It is going to be a very LONG and HOT SUMMER.
It should be obvious to anyone with the slightest shred of an understanding of history that some serious shit is about to go down.
