This is the latest post in a weekly blog I started getting a while back, and have no idea how I even started getting it. But,this guy is always absolutely fantastic, he sees and articulates things so accurately and so clearly, I am always really impressed. I believe the guy in in his 80's, his name is Michael Koblos, e-mailing from [email protected]. I assume/hope I'm ok here and that this isn't copyrighted material.........enjoy :)



Suicide Watch…I have come to believe that America has a “death wish”…it seems like everything we do is designed to bring us closer to death as a nation…whether it is all part of some plan administered from outside, or a mass mindless headlong

lemming-like cultural binge, is of little consequence…the fact is, we have abandoned virtually everything that made us the world’s greatest nation, and are headed for oblivion…we are headed for the cliff, and the eventual fall onto the rocks below…



We have transformed education into indoctrination, and producing youth who are unprepared to respond to the needs of society, and incapable of contributing to its economic stability…



We have transformed the concept of self-reliance into a morally acceptable dependence on government for our needs…when half the people of a nation subsist of the efforts of the other half, the whole will not long survive…



We have engaged in excessive military actions, at great cost in lives and monies, that have gained us nothing in either wealth or international respect…



We have spent untold wealth on building other nations, while our own is slowly disintegrating, with pockets of third-world conditions in our once-great cities…



We have attempted to create democracies in places where such concepts are antithetical to the cultures and practices that prevail, and attempting to create governments while are own is in disrepair…



We have allowed the debilitating “mongrelization” of our once almost homogenous population through naïve concepts of “diversity” and “political correctness” and “imaginary rights”, to where we are no longer of one voice, but rather a heterogeneous conglomeration of factions at odds with each other, and agreeing to nothing…



We have allowed the invasion and occupation of our nation by hoards of foreigners that are bankrupting our federal state and local governments, and overloading social services, law enforcement, schools, hospitals, prisons, as well as community patience…while at the same time demanding more rights and privileges than they have a right to possess…



We have expanded government until it is involved in, and controlling, every facet of our existence, and intrudes on our freedom and privacy, down to our conversations on the phone, and money transactions of every sort…we are under constant surveillance of one kind or another, wherever we go, and whatever we do…



We have descended into a decadent culture of sex, violence, and drugs, and have cast aside morality and manners, as well as shame and propriety…it’s evident in our entertainments, our daily news, and even the magazines at the checkout counter…we make Sodom and Gomorrah seem like cities of brotherly love and goodness…



We have lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001… about 75 percent of those factories employed over 500 people when they were still in operation….in total, the United States has lost about 5.5 million manufacturing jobs since October 2000…



I could go on, but it’s all out there for anyone to see who is at all interested in looking, and watching a nation commit suicide…



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Not Facing Facts….There is much wringing of hands on the part of military and civilian defense officials about the impending reductions in Defense spending…they say that it endangers our position as a world superpower….will someone please tap them on the shoulder and wake them up to the fact that we are no longer a world superpower….we are broke and 14 Trillion Dollars in debt….the Congress has no choice but to cut the Defense budget, and all other “budgets’ as well….wake up America….we are insolvent…and in debt up to our ears…that’s a fact….face it…



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Hispanic Influence in America…Everything I buy these days that have directions or instructions with it always has it printed in both English and Spanish…also, most often when I call a commercial company I have to signal if I want the call to be carried on in Spanish or English…all that, in itself, is more telling than anything the government or media is NOT telling us…and that is that, as far as business goes, Hispanics are reaching parity with English-speaking Americans…pretty soon we may well have a bi-lingual government…cause for concern…???…you bet ‘cha…



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



China Buying Influence…Just as America has done in the past by buying favor and influence through generous handouts of monetary aid, the Chinese are now sending emissaries around Europe offering to buy up debt to help the economically strapped nations to relieve their economies…and thereby replace America as the nation whose lead to follow and support in world affairs and international initiatives…in short, money talks, and we don’t have any to spare, but the Chinese do…



Just as we bought ourselves into world prominence by means of our economic strength in post WWII years, so China is now following suit, quietly shoving us out of the way…and there is not much we can do about it…in addition, China has learned from our past war failures and military entanglements to refrain from following suit…they are in no hurry gain immediate world dominance…they are scattering money around all over the world, instead of bombs and bullets…building their military to thwart any thought by another nation to challenge them with force of arms, but not using it to scare nations into submission…



We are faced with the reality of our diminishing stature…and foolishly borrowing money to stay in the game…that doesn’t work in Las Vegas, and it won’t work on the world scene…we are only digging ourselves deeper into the hole….



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Excess Naval Personnel…The Navy’s Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Gary Roughead, recently announced that “we have too many people in the Navy”…therefore the Navy will force out about 3,000 enlisted personnel and several hundred officers at the mid-grade level ( Commanders and Captains)…interesting that he said nothing about any excess in the number of Flag Officers (Admirals)…the CNO said it wasn’t a money issue, but rather just too many people…he said, however, that it was important to look at the cost of manpower, as that cost inflates more than any other factor…



The Admiral said that he’s reviewed the study that led to the creation in the 1970s of the all-volunteer force to replace the draft, and noted that some of the things the sturdy recommend were done, and some were not, and as a result are we are unduly burdened, particularly in terms of retirement programs, pay scales, and health care costs…



While this is all about one service, the Navy, you can well assume that these considerations apply to the other services as well…in short, they just cost too much, and we can no longer afford it…and changes and reductions are in the mill…



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Overpopulation Solved…It appears that the best deterrence to overpopulation is affluence…people who are well off don’t need a lot of children to help produce family income, and take care of the parents in their old age…Western Nations have become so prosperous that they have virtually stopped having children…as a result, their populations have diminished, resulting in the need for immigrant labor to do the work that needs to be done and, thereby endangering the continued viability of their once homogenous societies, as foreign languages and customs and attitude intrude on the native populace …all of which could eventually result in the disappearance of the western culture, along with the affluence it once had….



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Band -Aide…Last week the House of Representatives voted to cut $125 Million in spending on military bands…at this rate it would take one million years to pay off the national debt, even if we never spent another penny on anything else…oh, and one more thing, the Senate has yet to approve it…



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Repeat from 1 September 2006… Western Lens...As we have witnessed in untold instances around the world, capitalism does not necessarily result in democracy, and democracy does not necessarily result in universal human contentment.... especially if these Western concepts are hastily imposed on a populace whose culture is not prepared for their implementation...ethnic hatreds and genocidal violence can easily be ignited, with disastrous consequences...it has happened...it is happening... and it will continue to happen as long as these concepts are urged or imposed from without, especially on tribal cultures...such cultures are virtually immune to personal freedoms and democratic principles, since it would tear down the basic structure of their existence...



Western Nations have always looked upon the rest of the world through a “Western lens” of concepts, values, customs, and historic precedence that do not apply to others...in the past their power has allowed them to install in nations a thin veneer of acceptance on a compliant minority, then making them rich and cooperative, while the majority remained poor and subjugated... this stratagem no longer works... it is being resisted throughout the world, from Iraq and Afghanistan, to Central and South America, and to Asia and the islands of Indonesia and the Pacific... humility instead of arrogance, and mutual respect instead of condescension might be the better tools for world peace and prosperity in the 21st century...if only the West could learn to use them...



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Zen Point to Ponder... When people of lesser civility are mixed with people of greater civility, the civility of the former is enhanced to a lesser degree than the civility of the latter is diminished.

No disrespect to the WWII colonel whose famous quip you cite, but was it REALLY necessary to clog up the thread and waste bandwidth by quoting the entire two-foot OP just to respond with a single (and questionably useful) sentence? I mean REALLY ?? :xeye:

To the U.S.A. Commander of the encircled town of Bastogne. The fortune of war is changing. This time the U.S.A. forces in and near Bastogne have been encircled by strong German armored units. More German armored units have crossed the river Our near Ortheuville, have taken Marche and reached St. Hubert by passing through Hompre-Sibret-Tillet. Libramont is in German hands. There is only one possibility to save the encircled U.S.A. troops from total annihilation: that is the honorable surrender of the encircled town. In order to think it over a term of two hours will be granted beginning with the presentation of this note. If this proposal should be rejected one German Artillery Corps and six heavy A. A. Battalions are ready to annihilate the U.S.A. troops in and near Bastogne. The order for firing will be given immediately after this two hours term. All the serious civilian losses caused by this artillery fire would not correspond with the well-known American humanity. The German Commander.

Responce "nuts"

That's the whole joke.

Any mods want to edit it down ill have no problem with it.

I said "nuts" because when someone says a long drawn out statement with the intent of ceasing his opposition the one thing he can't stand is some wiseass to respond with "nuts"

Standing with your eyes on a wall covered with newspapers and written essays using pins and string to connect them.
Taking isolated stories and drawing a grand conspiracy is odd and ineffective.

But at least hes trying
