The New Age of Unenlightenment

By David Glenn Cox

Former locker room attendant and washer of jock straps Jim Jordan says, the physical altercation on the House floor was just the way the founding fathers wanted it! Paid liar Chip Roy says it was just give and take and we need more of that because you see. Washington is broken, and the Republicans (so called) are going to fix it by breaking it some more.

Same old story the Republicans little more than five years ago. Voted for the largest tax cut for the fewest wealthy people in American history. And now we must cut spending because gee, we can’t afford it. So, we must now abandon the average American family because we can’t afford them anymore. Like a rip saw tax cuts going one way and spending cuts coming back the other.

In two years, the debt is now lower than it was under Trump. But Republicans insist Washington is broken. Every time Matt (Eddie Munster) Gaetz voted against Kevin McTraitor for speaker, he sent out a fundraising e-mail. When you put crime incorporated into power, the criminals are Kings.

The Republicans (so called) are planning the same stunt they used to gain minority rule. They’ve drawn a line in the sand and said, you Democrats must come to us. How is that a negotiation when one side threatens the other before the negotiations even begin. Chip Roy says he wants to make Washington more transparent because the last spending bill was brought to the floor without most members even reading it.

The three biggest lies in the world. This won’t hurt. The checks in the mail. And no one had a chance to read the bill. If Mr. Roy didn’t read the bill, the fault is entirely on Mr. Roy. He is putting forward a false narrative of how Congress works. At anytime Roy could have stopped by Kevin McTraitor’s minority leader’s office and requested a copy of the bill. Just another lie from the party of lies and sedition.

But even before Roy’s words about transparency had lost their smell. Roy calls it, opening things up by allowing amendments from the floor. Or just when things are agreed to and brought for a final vote Marge Traitor Greene will be allowed to throw fire bomb amendments into the vote. Aka, moving the goal posts and paying tribute to buy their silence. And amendments voted down in committee will return, just before the final vote. Minority rule of the highway bandits.

The Republicans (so called) are setting the stage to shut down the Government, yet again. This time they claim it will be the Democrats fault. (Just like last time) But if you’re not negotiating in good faith and allow bomb throwing at ten minutes to midnight. They have no one to blame but themselves.

A phony gas light narrative that Washington is broken, when it is the Republicans who are broken. Bomb throwing traitors who’s only goal is pandemonium and sedition.

When the Nazis failed to gain power through a violent Putsch, they too dropped back and became a minority party in the Reichstag. Trying to gain power through the constitutional system. To kill democracy with democracy. To attempt to gain power through bluster threats and pandemonium. Lest we forget, once the Nazis gained political power the Reichstag was burned down.

Marge Traitor Greene described her phone call with Donald Adolf Trump on the house floor as a “perfect phone call.” I wonder what Donald Adolf wanted? Here’s one thing he wanted, as condition of being Speaker. Kevin McTraitor must begin an investigation of the Justice Department.

And what is Justice department been doing with their time? They’ve been investigating Donald Adolf. So, the very first thing the Republicans (so called) insist on is calling the dogs off the orange Fuhrer. This wasn’t a request this was a demand! This was a condition of Kevin McTraitor’s speakership. Investigate the investigators, turn the guns on the cops.

Fascism straight, no chaser! Minority rule or they will burn the house down.

There is an end goal besides ending democracy. The rule of the billionaire, a new gilded age. Money talks and everyone else listens. The libertarian philosophy that says that Feudal Europe really had the right idea! Princes live in palaces and the peasants sleep with the dogs. In feudal times the princes and potentates claimed it was God’s will they were so rich. And God’s will that millions were hungry and cold.

The Ludwig Von Misses of the world have a new wrinkle. Too bad, that’s the way it is. If millions are poor, homeless, or sleeping in the street. It’s their own tough luck. They only believe in one human right. Every other right you think you have is only imaginary.  The only right which actually exists to them is the right to own property.

And if don’t own property, by what right then do you interfere with those who do? Building their palaces and pulling up the draw bridge behind them. It is wrong to tax the rich because those benefits don’t go to the rich.

See: Defense spending. Defense spending protects the rich in their palaces and defends their property. (The only true human right)

“From the fact that people are very different it follows that, if we treat them equally, the result must be inequality in their actual position, and that the only way to place them in an equal position would be to treat them differently. Equality before the law and material equality are therefore not only different but are in conflict with each other; and we can achieve either one or the other, but not both at the same time” ― Friedrich August von Hayek

Capiche? Does this clear things up a little? If you treat everyone fairly, it is unfair. Because those with advantage lose their advantage and that’s not fair. It’s wrong to tax a billionaire to provide healthcare for sick children. Because sick children did nothing to earn it. Life’s tough, better luck next time kid!

Remember the fable about Jesus whipping the money changers in temple? Yep! Those guys, with black robes and mortar boards explain why greed is good. Greed is honorable. Rapacious greed is the zenith of human achievement and human civilization. And if the government passes a law saying you can’t dump poison in the river. The correct thing to do is move your business to a where you can dump poison in the river. If the workers strike for higher wages or better conditions. Move to where workers can’t strike. This is called Freedom!

In the words of George Bailey, “If Potter gets his hands on the building and loan there will never be another decent house built in this town.” Of course not, if they want a house. They should buy one cash on the barrel head. Otherwise, they don’t deserve one.

You have no right to free speech or right to a fair trial or the right to remain silent or the right to a public attorney. Just ink on paper written by a bunch of dreamers. That is making the unequal equal. And so is unfair, like public education. You have no right to an education. If you want an education, buy one!

Their goal is nothing less than the destruction of democracy because it is not fair to the wealthy few. Raising Feudalism as America’s bright shining future.

“Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion.” ― Friedrich von Hayek

I didn’t say it; they did! And they know themselves best. “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness all depends on your bank balance.


“THERE were two “Reigns of Terror,” if we would but remember it and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred millions; but our shudders are all for the “horrors” of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the axe, compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heart-break? What is swift death by lightning compared with death by slow fire at the stake? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief Terror which we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror—that unspeakably bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves.”  – Mark Twain

One thought

  1. A phony gas light narrative that Washington is broken, when it is the Republicans who are broken. Bomb throwing traitors who’s only goal is pandemonium and sedition. These are words you wrote that I agree with because all the problems they make to distract the public is the oldest trick in the book because then no one sees where the money’s going. Everyone is distracted with Petty crap.
