I'm sorta sure you'll be receptive to the video hidden under the header. Give it a click. For a starter on my conspiracy (Capital C?) theory, please let me point out something: If you're a bear, you get to hibernate.You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that. Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that, too. If you're a female bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that. If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them, too. I could deal with that. If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat...I wanna be a bear. Now for the balance of my CT. No, that doesn't mean Connecticut. Means Conspiracy Theory. Ahem. Sure, liberals all want the "assault-rifle" ban instituted. However, those with knowledge of past governmental actions understand that that kind of ban grows slowly over the years until it becomes all encompassing, all powerful and all in control of us. Unless we act, the second Amendment will be lost behind court cases forever. One small example of growth beyond reason is that of the Feds making a "humanitarian" appeal to supply the poor children with a half pint of milk in the 1950's. Who could say no to such a small human kindness, especially since the U.S. over produced so much milk it had to be dumped down sewers to get rid of it? (I come from Wisconsin. I saw it.) Well, in any case, fellow taxpayer and electee and citizen, from that 1/2 pint of milk, see who now controls our schools. See who is now responsible for the failure rate of our children. See who really selects the failing curriculum for your kids. It isn't you any more. Government employees in any bureau have a tendency, in order to protect their sinecures, of enlarging and expanding the scope of what they were set up to do. Like Topsy they just grow. They grow until the top people are insulated from the taxpayers by so many layers of departments and minions that they can no longer be contacted by us insignificant voters. It's an old way of making one's career safe and secure. And it is self propagating. Investigate some agencies yourself. The TV show (which I watched fervently and thankfully for its intelligent scripting and fine acting, I add) The West Wing, pointed out in an earlyish episode that a ban on automatic weapons would sooner or later open the door to a ban on all privately owned guns for the citizens. Did you vote for a person who seems to have this mind? It's strange (maybe not, I am only one voter) but none of the enquiring emails I have submitted to the Obama-Biden camps have received a response. I asked if they intended to end tenure for school teachers. No answer yet. I asked if they intended to seek a ban on automatic guns. No answer yet. I asked if they meant to erase the Federal Reserve Bank from the country. No answer yet. I asked if they intended to seek any changes in Federal Election Commission powers. No answer yet. I asked if they intended to put a limit on campaign spending. No answer yet. There were more questions. None have received any reply other than a random email or two stating they had received my email and it would be sent to the concerned department. What concerned Department? They didn't say. Maybe they meant the FBI. Are we really looking toward "multiculturalism, bilingualism, moral chaos and educational nullity."? Check out this Brit writer's opinion (no, I don't usually accept aliens judgements of American elections, But after my discounts of items, I still find his analysis vibrant and stirring): http://hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/2008/11/obamaniacs.html .

I hope you had a warm and peaceful Thanksgiving, Cat.

I really like Hitchens (both of 'em, actually) and have linked him in the past. But this bit is oh-so-true:

But after spending some time in the US during the closing days of the campaign, I came round to the view that, granted a vote, I would have cast it for Mr McCain if only to annoy the Obama cultists, and emphasise the fact that a sizeable minority aren't wholly fooled by hype, humbug and brain-bypassing advertising techniques.

Not a sizeable enough minority to become even a teeny-tiny majority, tho. God Save Us.

Suldog said...

Hey, thanks for stopping by at my place. Good to hear from you! I hope your Thanksgiving was as lovely as mine!

Catmoves said...

Yes, Buck, Hitchens seems to have our nail on the head with his hammer. What a very smart Brit to really understand our complicated electoral problems.
And I second your last comment.

Catmoves said...

Ah, Thanksgiving, Suldog. Ym yum time. Yep ate too much (turkey and stuffing, in my case) but I loved every bite.
And the big adventure is on right now. What to do with all those lovely leftovers. Hehehehe.

Towanda said...

Cat -- I am sure the reason that you didn't receive any answers to your questions is that they didn't have any.

Oh -- and the fact that they seem to have contempt for us and don't think we have the right to be asking them questions.

Going to be an awfully long 4 years dealing with an administration that seems to be averse to giving us any real information about anything.

Catmoves said...

You may be 100% correct, Towanda. The safest course, when you don't want to expose a real conspiracy, is to ignore questions that might expose it.
(Someday I might write about my youth political machinations. But not yet.)
Do you feel that Obama would be any worse than the Bush people who depended on obfuscation? I'm not sure of that and I voted for the other guy.
I agree that we seem to be in for another rocky four years.
