Pat Caddell: Country's Mood Is "Pre-Revolutionary"

Here is what it all comes down to, as he asks:

"Who is sovereign? The people or the political class?"

Let me suggest that in politics, just as in drama, the intellect steers, but the emotion drives.

We would all be intellectually opposed to Obama's and the Democrats' agenda in all possible worlds.

But the intellect steers, emotion drives.

What has people willing to walk on their naked knees over broken glass is the emotion of it. Not just that we disagreed as pointedly (and at first as respectfully) as we could, but that, having lodged our objections as natural-born Americans with the power, we're told, to shape our own political destinies, our input into our own fates was met with a single dismissive fuck-you:

"We. Don't. Care."

Followed up with:

"We. Will. Do. What. We. Please."

That is what is providing the actual emotion here.

When it was just a policy debate, it was intellectual.

But now they've gone and made it personal.

That was a mistake. Because you can sell people down the river if you can keep them asleep while you do it.

When you rouse them...? When you alert them...? When you incense them...?

Tougher.

And it's not just personal, but fundamental: Who decides in America? The people, as the books claim? Or the elite, as common practice seems to have it?

And so the rage.

And soon the fire.

See Hot Air for other stuff, like PPP finding Obama's approval rate in swing states is ten points lower than the margin he was elected with.

We will take this country back. Trust that.

I don't have that much fear of a lame duck session.I'm not sure you can get a bunch of that through the Senate. Card Check - can't get a Republican to cross the aisle, and, having been badly damaged by the unions, Blanche Lincoln not gonna be in any mood to help them in the end. Cap and Trade - you may have some Republicans willing to go along, but you will still have a few Democrats in Red and or Purple States (Ben Nelson, Claire McCaskill) who will want to avoid it like the plague.
What else do you think they will try and pass - I suspect the votes in the Senate won't be there. Because if November goes the way it looks like it will, the survivors are going to be scarred to death for the first time in their political life.

44 1. Martha needs to shut it a couple times in this interview

2. Cadell is spot on, but he took a little swipe at Reps with that line "Republicans don't have to care about the people, but Democrats do", really Pat? Reps turn their back on the base (i.e: av. hardworking American) and they end up getting bitch-slapped by them for screwing it up, Dems do everything their base claims to be against (ie.: poor people looking for handouts) and they don't give a damn because they're still getting paid. Other than that, right on Pat

3. MI is not a heavy blue state, they haven't gone red since 88 yes, but in 92 and 96 it was close and in 00 and 04 Bush just lost the state by a teeth both times, does it lean blue? yes, but it's not the heavy blue state Pat seems to think it is; of course he could be talking about the local MI politics which I don't know much about

4. yeah I still say we barely take the House w/ a 40-50 seat gain and just barely lose the Senate

So, we take the house and senate in November. The MSM spins it as nothing, and then starts to blame all the problems these turds have created on the Republicans and they pound it day in and day out until 2012. Plus the Precedent does his car keys bit every day until then. By 2012 the Dems are back in business.

61 Ace, for some people it's still a "policy debate" (think Ed "Pillsbury Doughboy" Morrissey, the crowd at NRO and all the talkers on TV) and will be until Osama Obama pulls the plugs on their connections.

Yes, there are occasional flashes of righteous and justified anger, but these people have the attention spans of gnats. Distract them with a shiny trinket (who really gives a fuck if the Park Service bought new windows for an abandoned building, or if David Frum and some other blogger are having a tiff? or a question about what Zombie William F Buckley would think of some little think tank's "position paper" on Greenspan v. some other economics wanker) and they are happy as kittens in catnip.

Your Mencken quote at the head of the page is right on target, and if someone chooses to rally the troops we might be able to view it as a metaphor and not a reality.

We have seen the nation pushed closer to destruction since 1861 (maybe even closer than it was then) by Osama Obama and his totalitarian hordes. The Constitution hovers just above toilet-paper status in their world, and no law is safe from being broken. No right of the citizenry is too precious to take away, and no terrorist is too evil to suck up to.

And yet, people keep talking about trivia, never choosing to look at the real core evil.

Maybe we need our own Journolist, where those who care about the country can formulate a unified approach to saving it.

Don't expect many of our elected officials to stand up for America, though. They are as fat and happy as the legislators in a certain country whose leader's name must never be mentioned with Obama's (though decency couldn't keep it from being linked with Bush's) right before said leader, a totalitarian, demented, hate-filled racist (sound familiar?) stripped them of power and became Fuh Absolute Ruler.

This is not the dilemma. It is not merely a matter of the political class versus the People. We are at a strange juncture where the political class is intentionally trying to destroy every and tradition that was America. We are seeing the modern left act as if they are the second coming of the French Revolution. I'm a bit surprised that they haven't tried to hit us with the Revolutionary Calendar, 10 day weeks and such, in order to break the bonds society has with organized religion. This is who the modern left are. They are just another group, but a group that hates everything about us and who we are.

Normally, even this group of self-hating retards is kept within limits, because of unconscious ties they have to American culture. This is why Shrillary and Bill let their health scare die a normal death. They couldn't help themselves. It seemed to them as if they had no choice. But, get someone with no real ties to American culture, a non-natural born citizen running things, and none of those cultural or traditional taboos have any power. Quite the opposite. The Indonesian Imbecile reveled in taking the most un-American tack on everything, and then trying to ram it down our throats in the most un-American way possible. The useful idiot Americans, upon seeing this, now feel themselves freed from those heretofore unacknowledged cultural ties and limits, so now they are just as dangerous as the alien. We saw this in the last push of health scare and now into the secession-inducing issues of direct assault by the feral government on the citizenry with illegal aliens, marriage, guns, and health care ... among others.

As the useful idiots are emboldened by these continuing actions, this process will end exactly where every reasonable person knows it will.

73 It is interesting. I've always lived around liberals and got used to being the polite right-winger. I lean more libertarian so they don't hate me as much. So I've taken shit my whole life and just ... accepted that that was the way of the world. But lately I've changed. I'm not polite anymore. I curse way more than I ever used to. I used to patiently explain my point when libs played the race card, now I just tell them to fuck off. I really have started to kind of hate them as people. From my perspective they willingly chose evil. They cheered evil. And they try to bully me with the race card every time I complain.

Also, especially in the area I live (smallish city/college town) the left controls pretty much every instrument of power and position of status. My income has suffered now that I'm more open about my views as has, frankly, my social and dating life. I'm considering moving because I feel quite unwelcome here now. It sucks. What in the past had been intellectual disagreements has become intensely personal ... nothing like being ganged up on and publicly called a racist (for disagreeing about a friggin health care bill and supreme court nominee!) a few times to really harden the heart.

In the past I even got some grudging respect for having a contrarian, and reasonably well-argued, outlook. No longer.

Similarly, I used to explain away the lefties at work or in my social circle as misguided, but well-intentioned. I no longer believe that.

Missouri passed a referendum defiantly objecting to the Federal Government's new medical entitlement. The Spokesperson for the President dismisses it out of hand...

Without some unknown variable entering the equation, the only questions are not if but when, and what will actually start the fire.

Our side doesn't need their side for our existence and to create our desired lifestyle. In fact, they are a roadblock to doing so. Their side, otoh, must suck at the government teet to continue their preferred path. And without our side, there is no government teet.

91 I have a neighbor who appears to be very smart. He is one of the few open minded people I've ever met and because he's an engineer he actually has respect for facts. He is black, has a white wife and had been very successful. However, he has worked in the liberal media for years but seems to hold them in low regard. The other night he said that the U.S. has the reputation of backing the wrong guy internationally. I waited awhile and then asked him when. He thought for awhile and said, hmmm, I don't know. He asked about Israel. I suggested that if the Palestinians stopped suicide bombings, et al, then Israel might not have to do what they do and that whole problem might go away. I asked him to think about it and he said he would. I actually enjoyed the conversation even though I had to make myself seem less passionate than I am. It's tough sounding reasonable when you want to buy pikes and tar.

Are you suggesting a reason, or just wanting to ignore the fact that the time to get the country back on the rails is growing short?

Or did I miss something? Did the "conservatives" in the Senate filibuster the Kagan nomination, or did they decide to hold hands with their fellow royalty and play nice? Has anyone on our side of the aisle stood up and said "this far and no farther!" to Osama Obama, Eric Shabazz Holder and/or activist judges, or are they all squishes like Bill O'Reilly?

I don't like this any more than you do. But the shit piles up, and when the pile gets high enough, it will topple over and smother us. I don't see anyone taking the lead in stopping the shit....

There's a great asymmetry between liberalism and conservativism. They aren't mirror images of each other.
Liberals can live under conservatives in the federal government, since conservatives subscribe to federalism and allow the liberals to form whatever socialist shit-holes they want in the states that they control.Conservatives cannot live under liberal control of the federal government, since liberals want a national government with all policy dictated from Washington, and do not allow conservatives to live in conservative states, since states are not given any autonomy to enable such under their view of a national government from Washington.This is why the nation will eventually split. The two sides are totally incompatible, unless liberals are kept out of federal power - but they own the judiciary and do tons of damage through that one arm.

103 Taking back the government begins with parents taking back their kids and by extension the schools. The latter must be taken back from the insidious criminals who have engaged in academic pedophilia for the past 50 odd years. They have poisoned the minds of our youth to hate America and its ideals and to worship the collective.

We might win this election and win it in an electoral tsunami, but it means nothing unless our youth and those who don't know any better are educated and instructed on a continual basis so as to marginalize the left and never ever let them gain any power at any level.

Otherwise, all this anger and action will be for naught.

lame duck session or something. Note, the stuff they would try to ram
through then was stuff they could not ram through back before they got
their asses kicked.

But they've been trying to ram stuff through with political cover in an election year. Two years is a political eternity, so they don't need to worry about the consequences. Voters just don't remember that far back.

168 Sally Ann,

The good progressives have to run as a conservative just to get their bony foot in the door of the senate and congress. Bambi had to run as a tax cutter and gov't reducer to have half a chance. The MFM gave him the other half by propping him up as the smartest man ever to run for office, ignoring his dizzying logic and anti-toastmaster articulation. All he has in his chin up in the air, his middle finger pointing at the American people and crease pants.

Yes, time and time again, the good libs run as God fearing, tax cutting, limited government wonks and get elected. Then the libs crow about how the country is rejecting conservative principles during their acceptance speeches. They laugh like little kids in their first days as 'public servants', knowing full well their governing philosophy, if ever made public during campaigns, would doom them to a private sector job selling fruit on the side of road (an honorable job, which means they wouldn't take it) or becoming a night manager at Walgreens. (NTTAWT).

Furthermore, I contend state and local elections in heavy blue areas are not legitimate (See Franken, Al among many documented examples).

So, yea, we get our principles voted on affirmatively every cycle. All that changes is the charlatans who adopt, espouse and hijack these principles.

Suck it.

170 Dear Fellow Morons,



One thing at a time.



The first thing that has to happen is achieving the tidal wave that Pat
predicts. Without that first step, all the planning and leadership in
the world ain't gonna do a damn bit of good.



The anger is palpable here, and anywhere you look around the country.
The difference? The libs have been angry since before I started paying
attention; probably all the way back to Vietnam. Conservatives get angry
enough to speak only when pushed- now, 1980, 1994.



Anger clouds the mind.



That doesn't mean dump the anger- that means channel the anger into
something productive. That means helping to 1) make that first step
happen, and 2) examine who the weak links are in the conservative fire
line, particularly in the Senate. Unless 20 seats flip to red in the
Senate (not gonna happen by November), this is just positioning for
2012.



Ace called it right- emotion is the engine; intellect is the steering. It
is vital at this point that if the politicians won't provide leadership,
the voters will. Each Moron reading this knows deep, logical, and
well-thought-out reasons for US conservatism being the truest path to liberty in this country. It's time to sell those ideas, with passion- NOT ANGER.

Fools like Sally Ann and our various other trolls will attempt to bait you into anger, as we've seen (the race card, played over and over again). It is not them that we need to convince; it is the remorseful Obama voter that needs beckoning.

I urge you to remember what makes the successful sales pitch- attention, interest, desire, conviction, close. Get their attention, get them interested in the product, make them desire it, reinforce their desire with conviction, and close the sale. You ain't gonna pull that off by convincing everyone you're pissed off.

It's going to take at least two elections to undo what we've seen damaged over the last two elections- it'll require a solid majority in the House, and a supermajority in the Senate. That's going to mean carefully guiding our elected officials between 2010 and 2012, and hopefully a leader will emerge over the next two years.

It is certainly time to go on offense- you can't win playing just defense. Be idealistic- that is where passion is vital. But control that passion in order to attack swiftly and successfully. The hard part lies ahead.

Well, stupid voting will always make things worse, as we see in 2008. But there's a lot of truth to the notion that a very small minority of people is calling the shots these days regardless of election outcomes.

Posted by: Ace's liver at August 05, 2010 08:42 PM (XIXhw)

173 No offense, but a lot of you guys could not actually get 5% for your particular idiosyncratic political ideals, and all you do is bitch and whine and moan and grouse about it.

It's democracy. Okay? You don't always get what you want. In fact, you usually don't. If you're getting what you want 50% of the time you're ahead of the game.

So if you want to take the position, which frankly DOES seem to be your position, that if you have to compromise, or vote for people you don't LOVE, or accept some setbacks, and etc., then you don't want any part of elective politics-- then fine.

But I would suggest then that you find a hobby that you will find more personally rewarding -- like model railroading.

Because all this hobby (and it is a hobby for you, since you have no tangible interest in actual poltical action) is giving you is heartburn and agita.

So either drop out -- which is what I think is best -- and let other people, still interested in politics and who still believe in America choose your destiny for you, or else sack the fuck up and be men about things.

Brown was against Prop 13. He campaigned heavily against it. The night it passed, he was for it! Brown may be a liberal but he understands and will work under that "consent of the governed" deal. Obama and his clique understand it but choose to ignore it.

What that means is that if somebody like Brown is in charge, he might like the same policies as Obama but Brown Has Limits. He'll only go so far. Obama won't stop so long as he has executive power.

What can I say? I'm not even a big fan of voting. I'd rather live in a nation with no voting, but a strictly limited government, than one with tons of voting and a government that had nothing standing in its way to expand into any area it thought appropriate. Of course, this was the view of our Founders, as they only called for democratic processes to be used in filling 1/2 of 1/3 of the federal government. They relied more on the Constitutional limits doing the work of restraining tyranny than any vote - as they knew that tyranny is always VOTED in eventually.

The idea that a nation is on the brink (and after we all saw the 2008 credit crisis no one can claim that they don't understand how close to the edge the US is, right now) is politics, in the deepest sense. I don't see the use ignoring the decay (and worse) that we all see, even if some don't think it is fatal and some do. Then again, I never got the sense that anyone was trying to organize any super-secret anything through the comments. They are just observations of what we think is happening and what will happen.

It's no longer a question about the issues and the fact that our side is losing. Losing is part of life, and it's constructive; it makes you better so that you might win next time or the time after that. It's how we're losing.
The Obama Administration is playing tackle baseball. There's no place in America for that game, and conservatives and liberals both realize that winning is inadequate at this point. These people have to be kicked off the playground.

For the record, ace, my ideals are centered around the following (in no particular order):

1. Following the Constitution, not treating it as a malleable thing;

2. Placing the security and well-being of America first;

3. A government that spends no more than necessary, does not pamper itself or distribute tax money to a favored few and taxes accordingly;

4. A government that works for all Americans, not just unions or any other "privileged" groups or classes;

5. A government that enforces the laws and scrupulously follows the laws it sets;

6. A president who considers him- or herself beholden to the entire population of the USA;

7. A government that recognizes the limits of its powers, and accepts them;

8. A government that sets the example for politeness, decency and harmony between Americans of all races, classes and religions, favoring none above the rest.

Those'll do for a start. Surely there must be politicians (or budding politicians) who would sign on to those ideals.

It isn't likely that one person can make a huge difference (unless your inits are SP), but anything, no matter how seemingly insignificant WILL help.

Ya need to get involved, in short. Like my old drill sergeant used to say "suck it up, ladies". Really. If enough get the message out this'll make 94 look like a minor deal.. Even in my tiny upstate town, people are aware of what's happening. We aren't as stupid as many think, most of us, like the REST of the country are busy living and coping with life.

I'm sorry, but even turning all of Congress over to the GOP is not going to stop the disintegration. Further, there has been too much irreparable damage done to our institutional processes and to the institutions, themselves, over the past year and a half. Congress was gang-raped time and again by The Precedent and his junta of useful idiots. You can't just forget all that. The damage continues on. And all this was done when the US was in the most vulnerable position it's been in in over a hundred years.This isn't gloom and doom. It's just what happened. What everybody let happen, even though we all knew how bad it was. We let them actually pass over $800 billion in extraordinary spending without anyone being allowed to read the friggin' bill - and that was the shallowest of offenses that have been carried out.I'm an optimist, in the medium term (15-20 years), for the American creed. But the short term is going to be very, very rough. Sorry that that assessment bothers people.

211 @141: "Then, seriously, what are you doing here?
Looking to see what my ostensible allies are thinking.You guys are no longer political, okay? Politics has a meaning. You are doomsday philosophers. You are not interested in political action."
Actually, I'm starting to find the idea of political action quite interesting. Might wanna look up the history of that phrase. Lots of guys with acronyms (PIRA, INLA,LVF, UDA,RAF, ETA) use it. Some are most adept practitioners of political action. I figure the odds of that sort of thing happening here are getting significant. As Claire Wolfe puts it: "America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."So why post on a political blog?
Gallows humor venting helps. Also, some people raise points worth consdering. The Right needs two things: (1) a plan; (2) balls. It currently has neither, but if either one appears, the other might well follow. If that happens, we might not need to get to the "shoot the bastards" phase.I'm so tired of the endless fucking whining and bitching.
Um, have you read any of your own posts - and I ask that in all honesty? Pretty much everyone on the Right is demoralizedand rightly so. We see what is being lost, yetno one has any idea ofhow to stop it.We're still just toldthat those magical two election cycles will fix everything. Hey-- life is hard. Sometimes it doesn't go the way you want.
Wow, this is the first that I have ever heard of this. No one's giving you a pony.
Ahh, but if I accept Allah into my life and get violent, I can get one that you'll pay for, courtesy of our government. Or if I stop working and go on the dole, same result. Or if I take gummint job and union up, same result. The pony is very, very easy to get if you don't really care how you get it.Sack the fuck up already and get over it."
I am over it, entirely. When the GOP retakes the House, I'm sureAmerica will be just like Rufus predicted: "And I'm telling you it's great here. The air is clean, the water's clean, even the dirt, it's clean. Bowling averages are way up, mini-golf scores are way down. And we have more excellent water slides than any other planet we communicate with. I'm telling you this place is great!"
But just in case that doesn't happen, you might want to give some consideration to what else to do.If someone doesn't come up with a plan, and soon, and if there is no will to see it through, then those guys who like "political action" - maybe Left, maybe Right - will come up with one.

214 Maybe it's getting lost in the discussion that the "eeyores" have been most accurate about The Precedent and what he's been doing. We are the ones who knew that he was looking to destroy the US, thus we understood all of his moves (and predicted more than a few) while the rose-colored glasses wearers were constantly asking, "But why would The Precedent do something that he gets nothing out of?" "Why is The Precedent stalling on troop deployments when it is a request from a strategic review that he just called for?" "Why would The Precedent risk the stature of the Office by going to Copenhagen without having the Olympics in the bag?"

I could go on for literally hundreds of such examples. Who was claiming that health scare was dead and that the GOP should go to that summit, while the "eeyores" were warning not to help revive that totally un-American piece of shit bill?

case, then what carries the American creed (the truly important part of
"America") into the future? That should be the utmost concern of

Americans have done a lot of stupid things over the years. When Nixon was president we had wage and price controls and 70%+ marginal tax rates. So even though it seems like things are always heading in the wrong direction don't forget that we've been there before and managed to roll much of it back. By convincing people who supported the idiocy to change their minds and vote sensibly.

I'm sorry, but even turning all of Congress over to the GOP is not going
to stop the disintegration. Further, there has been too much
irreparable damage done to our institutional processes and to the
institutions, themselves, over the past year and a half. Congress was
gang-raped time and again by The Precedent and his junta of useful
idiots. You can't just forget all that. The damage continues on. And
all this was done when the US was in the most vulnerable position it's
been in in over a hundred years.

In the past year and a half? Nothing that's happened in the past year and a half can't be rolled back except Sotomayor and Kagen. Two liberals got replaced by two different liberals on SCOTUS. Which is a draw, in my book.

And we were far, far more vulnerable in the early '70s. We had a hollow military and were facing an existential threat in the USSR. We had high inflation. We had malaise. We had lefty nutcases going around robbing banks and blowing things and making common cause with people interested in our destruction.

Look, I know there are problems. As I pointed out earlier, the courts are out of control, and it's not clear to me how we can fix that. The socialists are ascendant. But don't forget we've been here before. The fact that Americans were so smitten with Obama and have done a complete about-face in two years gives me hope.

Okay? Operational Security. You're going to need to know these things when you gear up for Invasion: America.

But just the precis:

OpSec requires that members of a military group (especially a guerila force) do not publicly state their plans. If guerrilas, then it's important to not publicly state membership in the guerrila force.

Plans are best made in "Cells" consisting of no more than five people; no member of a cell should know the names or locations of other cells. One leader in the cell and only one should receive orders down from his direct superior.

It's all there. All there.

But seriously, main point? You don't fucking talk about it on the internet.

That's just not true. There were legislative traditions and taboos that were smashed and that perverted legislative behavior is now accepted as "normal". That is irreparable damage. The system has been put into a very unstable state.

-->And we were far, far more vulnerable in the early '70s. We had a hollow military and were facing an existential threat in the USSR. We had high inflation. We had malaise. We had lefty nutcases going around robbing banks and blowing things and making common cause with people interested in our destruction.

We had nothing like the monetary catastrophe that we are now staring at. Nothing. Don't even think that having to go off the gold standard was anything comparable. That turned us fiat, wholly. In 2008, we saw the first massive crumblings of that fiat system, and we are only in the eye of the storm, now (thanks to a trillion of federal spending and a few trillions of printing/bond purchases and fake swaps for worthless assets by the fed). When the eyewall hits, again, there won't be any money left to buy outrageously expensive time with. And this is with the US dollar, the only monetary system in all of recorded history that was the basis of all world trade and foreign monetary policy. The dollar disinitegrating is not like the Weimar Republic, or Zimbabwe, or Albania, or Argentina, ... The US dollar is in a unique, irreplacable position, and people play with that because they really don't understand the threat its destruction would bring. It would be inescapable, as nothing can replace or substitute for the US dollar. Again, this is not eeyorism, but just the facts surrounding the issue of the dollar.

I have hope, too. It's just very tempered.
There are so many independent tracks going now. We have yet to have Israel hit Iran. Take the crap that emerged from "the world, and the US, under the Indonesian" in reaction to that silly flotilla event and multiply it by 10000 to get an inkling of what we're likely looking at. Then put the monetary impact into it all ... it ain't pretty (but I'm not supposed to talk about that, I guess). I have been saying this from before the flotilla event, but then I used to say to take the reaction to the Gaza operation and multiply that. The flotilla event just gave more evidence to the idea that this IS the track the world is on.

229 The problem that extends beyond this election, or even the election in 2012, is an idea, or a whole set of ideas that go with the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and every significant thing that has been fought over in +220 years to make this a free republic.
The Left has an idea, a set of ideas. They are malignant and repellant, full of loathing for the life of free men. And these ideas are subtley, and sometimes not so subtley embedded in pop culture, songs, movies, Letterman's show, ESPN,etc. Millions swallow this stuff unthinkingly, and now feel uncomfortable with the ideas that support the Constitution, etc.
So we can win some elections, and roll some of this stuff back (maybe) and buy ourselves some years of marginal prosperity and freedom again, but the Left will be back, meaner, sicker than before. Because you can't kill an idea, no matter how sick it seems to be, if somebody gets a payoff at the end of the day. Look at Islam. 1400 years of sick stuff, still going strong. They're gonna build a mosque a few blocks from the sight of the wrecked WTC. Believe it. There's plenty of Saudi money to hire people to build it, and just enough dhimmis like Bloomberg to help them. Sick.
So Ace, man, I'm not an Eyeore. I want to win, I'm willing to compromise, I don't need purity tests. But I don't know how to the fight mass media and the drone of dumb, sick ideas that permeate the minds of the unthinking millions of "Americans" out there. "Sally Cavanaugh" is the perfect example of those unthinking millions. It is also the answer to why Letterman is still on the air.

But no....instead we go round and round with no real sense of trust in our political allies. I get the sense that many of the so called moderates, not sure if you put yourself in that category or not, are like the SchoolYard teacher.

Ok, since we're going with the personal insults, and you're lumping me in with the Stormfront types, reread my posts untermensch.
I'm saying something needs to be done to avoid letting the revolutionary types be the ones making the decisions, becuase if things aren't turned around, they will be. Stuff got way out of hand in the Great Depression, and that could happen again - worse. What, exactly, do you think would happen if the economy collapsed? Paulson already threatened Congress with the fact that they'd have to put "tanks on the street".
I don't exactly see where I announced any insurgency. I asked a question: If voting doesn't work,what then?
If things go to a real, honest to goodness shootin', hangin' kill-em-all war, I have no illusions about what will happen to me. I live in Soviet Monica - I'd be one of the first casualties. Odds are really good that I'd never even see it coming until the rope went around my neck or I got pushed against the wall.

Oh, now come on. We had a bubble pop in 2008. It was a smaller bubble relative to GDP than the one in 1929. It's not a crisis of "the fiat system", it was just a realization that all that debt couldn't possibly be paid back. In a fractional reserve system that results in deflation.

Well, yeah, when you've designated me Commandante Maximo of the Glorious Revolution, my question would get read that way.
I don't know what the "what then" is. But any plan for fixing stuff has to consider what could happen. Take spending cuts, for example: cut the military budget, we risk foreign aggression. Cut transfer payments, we risk domestic unrest. Proposing either is probably electoral poison, but it is necessary.
So: what's the plan? Can it work? What happens if it doesn't?

268 -->Oh, now come on. We had a bubble pop in 2008. It
was a smaller bubble relative to GDP than the one in 1929. It's not a
crisis of "the fiat system", it was just a realization that all that
debt couldn't possibly be paid back.

It was not a threat to the monetary system when it happened, but the federal government moved quickly to have private liabilities shifted onto the public (made the Fannie/Freddie guarantees explicit, took on AIG's portfolio, increased FDIC insurance levels in banks, swapped out shit MBSs for cash from the Fed, ...) and turned an economic problem into a monetary one. That was the biggest mistake that was made. It was made a monetary threat, and that is how the sistuation remains, with the extra debt piled up to fight it now a serious threat, itself, with the coming rise in interest rates (which we will not be able to service, no way no how). Bush, and the rest, constantly made the serious mistake of terming it as an economic crisis when it was turned into a monetary one.

-->In a fractional reserve system
that results in deflation. Yeah, the economy is gonna be ambling around
aimlessly for a few decades. But it's not even close to the end of the
world.

The US is the engine of the world. The only way to deal with our debt is to grow out of it, but we have been implementing anti-growth, anti-capitalist, anti-property rules that make that possibility more and more remote. The US can't take two decades of stagnation like Japan just went through. They could only do it because the US was around and chugging along. The engine, itself, can't idle for two decades.

What do you mean by saying the US "can't take" two decades of stagnation? Sure we can. We've done it before. In fact, that's what's likely to happen. They'll print dollars to pay off that massive debt, raise taxes, and stiff the old folks somehow. But it's going to take a long string of stupid mistakes before we get to the Mad Max territory everyone seems to think is around the bend.

And it's not like we haven't debased the dollar in the past. We've been doing it nonstop since we went off the gold standard.

If interest rates returned to 1980 levels, do you believe that the US would be able to service our national debt? I have to tell you that many like to blithely answer that we can just print it, but a hyperinflationary spiral (not like the stagflation of the 70's, but real hyperinflation) for the world's largest currency and world reserve and trade currency is really not where one should think of going.

296 Let's just do the right things period. Get ourselves into our local political offices, make sure we have votes that count, become monitors so no corruption can take place in our districts. Get some of us elected to school boards, maybe a handful of state representatives, even possibly a real Congressman or two.


Then we hold the line. Pull a Senator Coburn. We call people on their BS. Make these crooks spell out what they are doing. Don't play the game. Make them read their own corrupt words. Do it with a sense of humor, ala Chris Christie. But don't back down. We do everything legally possible to stop them. When they circumvent the Constitution, ex: Prop 8, Kelo, etc., we pass laws taking those areas out of the purview of the courts. We don't have to accept faulty decisions by biased courts if we are in charge of the purse-strings and the state houses. Look at the mood of the country. People are on our side. They want to just live their lives and not have their children become indentured servants to the political class and its' chosen winners. People want fair play. Believe it.


Yes, we do need to take back the education system and the media. We're doing a damn good job with talk radio and Fox. They are the only outlets where at least we get to speak on occasion. And we are being heard.


Let's use this time to organize. The tea parties are more than just time to get some frustration off your chest. They are a signal that the people of this country are fed up by the ruling class. We need to provide leadership, not anger. Is anyone with me?

Venting is one thing.. Violent fantasies are another. You can read silly sick stuff like that on the left, at Kos or DU, about what they'd like to do to Republicans, the Right, Sarah Palin, etc. But that sort of think actually feeds their ends.
What the leftist/statists want is a Hobbesian wilderness, of man against man, all against all, with a powerful fascist/corporatist state to "protect" you from your fellow man. The end of Burke's "civil society", of people voluntarily organizing to help their neighborhood or town. What they want is a violent social wilderness where only the government can protect you. The prototype already exists in a lot of big cities. They want to take that pathology nationwide, to every town and villlage. No escape.
That's why the violent fantasies (and I get plenty mad to) are a means to their ends. In my humble opinion.

For the next two years he will be neutered.

After the Republican Revolution of 1994, the question was asked, a lot, "Is the President relevant?" Clinton was reduced to doing joint appearances with Newt Gingrich.

317 -->Obama will be out of office in January 2013, repudiated with only 43% of the vote.

Clinton won with 43%.
-->For the next two years he will be neutered.

Based on what? He'll just shift more to Executive orders and regulation.

-->After the Republican Revolution of 1994, the question was asked, a lot, "Is the President relevant?" Clinton was reduced to doing joint appearances with Newt Gingrich.
Clinton was a natural born American. I know that means nothing to many people, but sets its own limits, which is why the Founders had it in as a requirement.

324 It's a matter of timing. There will be some kind of recovery -- at least a meager one-- but when?

In 1993 January, the economy had already been growing for two whole quarters, a full half of a year. The MFM covered this up because they didn't want to credit Bush the Elder with a recovery.

But even with that headstart no one believed the economy was truly in recovery under clinton until say 1995-- like more than two years after it had begun. Only then did people FEEL it.

Now that worked out nicely for Clinton because by Nov. 1996 everyone knew the economy was in recovery.

Supposedly Obama has a recovery going on, but it's anemic as hell; compare his shitty growth rates to those in Bush the Younger's recovery (where the economy spiked like 7% in a quarter and then 5%). Big bang stuff, coming out a recession with a punch.

Obama's eking a 3.3% at best, and now that's down to 2.7%.

Further, this comes rather late -- almost a year and half into his term.

Further further, I think we're going to double-dip.

The odds of Obama having a recovery that the people can actually FEEL (i.e., big enough, long-standing enough, widespread enough) by May 2012 (when people make up their minds about the economy for the election) are getting lower and lower.

I agree with you 100%, liver. That's the problem. Monetizing the debt is too easy, politically, but it puts the monetary system at risk of destruction - and at risk of an inescapable spiral towards destruction that is much enhanced given the historically large and singular nature of the dollar. Default maintains the integrity of the monetary system but screws up foreign relations and borrowing, immediately. We are destined to try and inflate our way out of the problems, which only leads to problems several orders of magnitudes worse, as the easier path is ususally only that way because the ill-effects are put off and come in later, and more viciously.

Really.

I quite honestly don't see that.

I have had many bootless conversations with American moon-bats where we've had to "agree to disagree" but there are some ground-rules that are just so fundamental that they are fricken' alien to people from other countries.

It's a pretty powerful ethos and as much as I acknowledge the successes of those who would distort or pervert it, it's still pretty persistent in its essence.

I wouldn't presume to tell someone else how to "think like an American" though I'm more than happy to share my thoughts on the matter, if asked.

I do hope to convince my neighbor to vote for this guy for Corporate Commissioner or that gal for State Rep. and why, though.

It's funny how much I have in common with my neighbors who are so different in age and sex and background and education!

Everyone likes a little Chris Christie, even if they have no idea who the hell he is!

They gave it their best shot and it was too much for the average American. My only real concern is if they somehow get an amnesty thing back doored.

No problem. I am not averse to discussing those possibilities, though, when I do, I say them explicitly. Along those lines, if the Sep 2008 credit crisis happened in Sep 2010 or 2012, there's little question that those consequences that people were so scared of happening last time would almost surely occur with the coming crisis, as we are all tapped out. This crisis will come, but I don't think there is danger of it being timed for anything. It is just naturally heading towards us.
Further, I've never viewed The Precedent as wanting to hold onto power forever. My view of him is much different. I think he is here to destroy as much as he can in his one (and likely less, at least I think he figured so) term. This is why I was not surprised by his declaration that he didn't care about a second term. I'd been writing that since he first came into office.That's why I'm not one who views The Precedent as a socialist. I don't think he has any real political thoughts, at all. He's just on a revenge mission, so far as I've seen it.

Boom seems unlikely. It will take a lot of time just to regain what was lost. We have to add what, 150K jobs/month just to keep the labor market even; to get a boom, we'd have to have hiring well beyond that for a long, long time.

It doesn't take that much to start a boom. Housing could lead us out of this mess. We are underbuilding housing by about 1,000,000 units a year and have for 3 years. We only have 8 months inventory now and a sellers market is 6 months or below.
People are living with their parents, siblings and friends now. If employment stabilizes at 150,000 per month where people feel like they aren't going to lose their job and they might even get a raise things could change pretty fast.

Because it isn't a real recovery. Lemme 'splain what I mean by that. In theory you have economic cycles because resources become mis-allocated when people get used to a growing economy. You get speculation, and that causes growth that isn't supportable. Then you go into recession and those mis-allocated dollars (and people) get reallocated so you can start growing again.

So technically two quarters of negative GDP mean a recession, and positive GDP means recovery. But you can goose GDP numbers by borrowing money and spreading it around, which technically ends the recession. But the economy never actually reallocates all those mis-allocated resources. You create a zombie economy that will dip in and out of recession depending on how much the government can get away with borrowing that year.

That's what happened in Japan for more than twenty years now, and that's what started happening in the US after the crash in 2008.

The point is Obama is screwed unless he stops with the Keynesian crap. Which he won't do because so much of that money is going to the ACORNs of the world.

363 355 - Ace .. I can tell you that from my recent discussions with many small business people and many mid-size and large business owners. This economic situation will go on for some time even if things "appear" to be better. It is because the fucking banks are NOT lending. I don't give a flying fuck what they say. I have many many friends who are in the business community and not deadbeats either. The banks are holding onto the money because they did not have any stipulations on the bailout. But, even besides that people will continue to be paranoid well after any recovery as they are holding back and not hiring and not doing anything that might put them at risk.

There is no expansion in small or mid-size business - nothing. They are just waiting it out. It is fucked and and I know that eventually it will get better but these jerks do not know what they have done. This insecurity with the economy will last far past any perceived "recovery'". This is just a fact and this is not something I am just pulling out of my ass. Business is just waiting and there will be no increase in employment until it is very clear that this administration is gone and it is safe to be a small or mid-size business again.

contrary to what Ace inferred, and what in my late night insomniacal posting I may have inadvertently been cryptic in allowing to be implied I do not support armed insurrection until a LOT of things more serious than "Jugears is replacing liberals with liberals on SCotUS" occur.

That said if you think, God forbid, that in the event of a genuine third revolution in US history the "rebels" would be stupid enough to try to fight "straight up" unless they were better than even on odds to win you misunderstand why we are moving so slowly in this Godforsaken conflict we are still in.


The flea will almost always defeat the elephant.

I agree with Ace, I will be as totally clear as I know how.

The American people barring some Tunguska level event are going to give the democrats a richly deserved electoral bloodbath. We owe it to our founders, men such as you, women such as my wife to use the system we inherited from the blood and honor of heroes past. The democrats are the ones on the precipice of history not me or my side of the aisle.

They *may try* to electioneer and dirty trick their way to the status quo ante becoming the state of being en perpetual but I doubt they have any more intestinal fortitude for that than they did for going to their districts and meeting with their bosses the people.

The "revolution" is in November....

we normal folk will meet at dawn and drop Xerxes jr. to his knees with a well-placed electoral shot to the groin.

Yeah, even in the wars in Yugoslavia, it was paramilitaries that did most of the fighting, at least on the Serbian side.

Well said. We got 5% growth for one quarter after having spent hundreds of billions in federal outlays and the Fed dumping TRILLIONS into the system. 5% annualized growth for a $13 trillion economy at a cost of trillions. It's almost criminal to call it "growth".

I am not sure what you mean by that. If you are saying you wouldn't mind getting in a fight with 8 guys in a bradley with a 20mm chain gun and 40mm automatic grenade launcher with whatever the newest cobra is circling overhead with 100 of your best friends with hunting rifles I think I want to stay home for that one.

The Real GDP growth as the only measurement can be tricky.
If your refer to the calculation, you can see that if government spending increases so does GDP, it is not a deep enough calculus to sort out good spending vs. bad spending with bad spending being deficit spending.

387 364 But your old semi auto hunting rifle isn't exactly up to the same calibre as Ma Duece (and that's hardly a standard issue force multiplier). An armed revolt or secession (especially secession) could really go badly -- if you don't have the military behind you, then you lose. Simple as that.
Fortunately your opponents have been very...short and tunnel visioned...concerning the same. So there's that.
Si vis pacem...go out and vote and encourage others to vote; we are in for an interesting end to this year I think. We'll find out soon enough. Hopefully things stablize.

424 Man surw is some funny shit. This should be an all comedy site. I mean if you want headlines there is always HA.

I am a firm believer in not repeating oneself, dilutes.. However, the whole point of "bringing it up" is to get articles like this written. What? ....U think badassusa caddell goes around the streets to "get the pulse". You think this not cause of de interwebs? Dur? Or did I miss the rev*lution poll?


Obviously, saying things outloud is self disqualifying. This is trivial and those who would, know that. Always a catch360. But here we get some legs.. An article that might give some more pause to the onslaughters (btw next 5 months are tenuous)... and whoa... No let's qualify this in every way possible so as to remove any mystery or multipicative threat assessment (WH should be easy to overwhelm as they have to polltest every issue response or whatever they do).

Someone is slow on uptake, or long on bitching, or weak on banning, or doesn't understand enemy, if words mean anything any more. Aoshq is no democracy last I checked. Same gripe for weeks now. How's about some action lest it become boshq (things gonna get worse befor they get better) and it's not like an epidemic or whatever. Ban the miscrients for a day or something just to retain the semblance of cojpnws. /sarc off


posters should say their piece and move on, imo. The constant drumbeat is, again, dilutory, and has to make operation of this thing awful tedious. It's one thing for someone, anyone, to state their observations/opinions, but blogs are free. Something tells me u can pretty much say anything here, at least once; that's good thing ( could u imagine a day u could say stuff on internets but not in public?). To overfill the trough is wasteful and does npt do service to others. quality not quantity. Focus. By the scoreboard we still have ground to gain. If anything the goal should be to bring opposing views here to be enlightened; the rest is cheerleading. PS: you have to respect that rather than ban people he confronts them face2face, so to speak.

430 I think Ace doesn't understand how revolutions occur. Most are spontaneous, some succeed, most are put down. The American Revolution wasn't planned, of course you did have agitators,and IIRC wasn't even supported by the majority at the outset. Some revolutions don't even involve much shooting.
Perhaps I'm wrong but given the current trajectory, the utter loathing that the liberal class has for common American citizens ("teabaggers" etc), the repeated abuse of the Constitution, the high living lifestyle of government officials while many are begging for work and other things, it seems like given the right circumstances a revolution could occur.
Perhaps the Republicans don't take back Congress. Instances of voter fraud are foundand Holder says he won't investigate. The TEA Party or some other group holds a mass rally in D.C., some liberal agitators infiltrate and try to make it seem like they are crazy racists, fights break out. The Mall police fire tear gas to disperse the crowd. People get trampled, turn and chargethe police and somebody gets shot and killed.
The next few days DC is under martial law, the National Guard called out, rally organizers arrested. Somebody interviews Holder who still says he won't investigate the voter fraud, "because I'm more worried about right-wing militia". Despite that a new rally is called in which 3 million people show up...

But don't sit here whining. Don't trade your new car for an old bicycle and accept that you are already a serf chained back to the land and that America is over.

My new enemy is the idealism of the precious few. who have strategically moved into postions of power. They use strategically planed news clips delivered by their minion news organizations to move their agenda. The problem is their agenda and the released clips to explain simply do not make sense, and in fact they are irrational! They are in direct opposition to whatI know to be true. So, one can only surmise; there is a plan to destroy the constitution of the USA! Our Presidenthas done nothing to instill or garner trust in his actions agenda...in fact he is put off to even have to answer to his constitutients...he insults us...and even shows his disgust to our values!!The trust of his constituients is a valuable ally that he has deemed unnecessary...his dismissal of the need for our trust is a behavior ofone who believes more in himself than those he represents. The question is whom does he represent!
So...I do not consider my self to be "Pre-Revolutionary"... I consider we are at WAR!

438 Revolution is already in progress. We were caught off guard with socialism. Now we accept that we are under it, with Obama Liberal Dems. We are enraged, and are going to banish socialism from America. It is incompatible with The Constitution!
PS: why is Obama building a GM factory in Mexico? any connection with his refusal to enforce our "Fed Immigration Law?" Is he trying to join U.S. with Mexico, into One Country? Hmm....

439 I think Pat is right on the mark.
"The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution." John Adams.

440 Pat, out of your mouth to God's ears.
Are we heading for a November election bloodbath? Dear me, I hope that we are. I hope that the screaming from the electorate is heard across America from sea to shining sea. I hope that they sweat bullets and have explosive diarrhea, and stand there holding their proverbial whatzit in thier hands, wondering what the license plate number is of the buss that just drove over them.
I'm so damned tired of being told that I'm stupid, that I don't understand and that my betters know better. I'm tired of the wholesale selling out of our basic principles, something that got us through over 200 years of sucess as a country, and now is being considered antiquated and negative in order to replace it with a failed socialistic utopian bullshit fantasy of nothingness. I'm rtired of being ignored, ridiculed and disregarded, disrespected... I'm tired of people of like mind spending more time trying to figure out what idiot is going to win American Idol, and so little time taking a stand for not only what's right, but what works.
I'm ready for a rumble. I'm ready to stand there and scream on the steps of the Capital that these folks don't own our country and they certainly don't get to do whatever the hell that they want to WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED. And I'm ready to be the last woman standing there with a picket sign because I'm not going to go quietly. I'm not going to stand down because of intimidation tactics. I don't care who they parade, or what they promise, they're all a bunch of liars, lacking character and honor.
As a female, ace, I'm not thinking Godfather, I'm thinking Joan of Arc and a flaming sword. And I'm an agnostic, go figure.
Cadell is right when he says that this isn't goign to go away with better numbers. This is bigger than the economy, bigger than situational politics. This isn't fad or fashion. What is happening is a sea change of long term involvement in politics and he can smell it in the wind and feels it in his gut. And he's right. I'm ready for November, and I'm ready for November 2012 and beyond.
A whole bunch of America has gotten off the couch, and I don't think that they're going to plop their fat asses back down on it anytime in the next few years. There is just too much at stake.
Bring it.

441 OMG, soooo much whining!

I don't know about anybody else, but me I'm itching for a good fight. Years, nay decades, of this nonsense creeping up on the American public has brought me to a slow and steady boil. Am I stressed? He'll yes! Everyday I find myself answerable to my government; there seems to be not one single facet of my life into which the corrupt hand of fat cat beaurcrats has not dipped. We are being enslaved by constant and incessant legislation. Back off!

Me, I've had enough and if I'm to go down I'll go down swinging.

442 Why all the hysteria? I guess we will find out in November if there is really some kind of tsunami brewing against the Democrats and the Obama administration, but I'm not seeing anything that different from midterm elections in prior administrations. Reagan's popularity at this point in his presidency was actually lower than Obama's. Reagan had about a 42% favorability rating at this point, and sank to a low of 35% before the economy finally started improving and he moved up. Obama is currently at about 45%. Bill Clinton also faced a very strong backlash in the 1992 midterms, losing control of both houses of Congress. This year, the Democrats may actually hold on to both houses. I hate to break the news to the people commenting here, but I believe the majority of the country supports the concept that everyone should have access to affordable health insurance. Most people did not want General Motors to be forced into liquidation. Nobody is happy that we had to bail out the banks, but nobody wanted our financial system to collapse either. People want the roads and bridges and schools that the stimulus spending is bringing us, and people do not want their states to go broke. There is nothing this administration has done that justifies all this hysteria and revolutionary talk. If you don't like some policies, fine, elect different members of Congress and go in a different direction. (I would point out though that we tried that direction for a very long time, and it got us to the brink of financial disaster, which we are still recovering from.) But stop all this irresponsible talk about revolution. We live in a democracy and the people are still sovereign. Consider the possibility that what the commenters here are unhappy about is simply that the representatives that we elected are doing things which some people do not agree with. That is always true, however, in every administration in history.

444 Their media Cartels swished them into power from the lawns of the 1960's sit in campus's......They are the "Progressives", they disrupted traditional teachings then, the same as they are usurping truth now!!!! The "Democrat" party is the one they chose to take over with the most success, although they have many closeted friends in the republican party also!!! They haven't changed any natural laws, you still have to eat, drink, shelter and nurture yourselves, which is a chore in itself, they have presented themselves as the chosen ones who can lessen that burden upon yourself, by handing that burden to them!!! PROBLEM IS, now that you have hired them, they also become your burden along with all your natural burdens you tried to pass responsibility of, to them!!! On a Daily basis, they will require more money and power,it's a hard job, being god, Lords of the land!!

445 The scary part of all this is,,,,if the Republicans get control of Congress, do we have any guarantee they will be any better than the Democrats? If the Republicans get into power and diss the people, that has to tell us "We the People" no longer have control of our government. that's when the revolt starts. By revolt, I mean we all should just sit on our asses and watch time go by. What would those in power do if we quit playing their game?

447 Most baby boomers still got a pretty good dose of patriotism as youngsters. Most baby boomers got a still pretty good education in the history of America when they were youngsters. Guess who one of the biggest demographics is today?
They may have been mesmerized temporarially by the evil ones, but they havent forgot their beginnings completely.
If this all plays out like I hope, the evil ones will be completely exposed. The American traitors over the last 50 years andthe ones behind the assassinations of sixties; and they will finally be delt with in the manner they deserve.

448 Lets cut the crap! Marxist/Socialist finally came out from behind the curtain and did a full frontal commandeering of the Democrat Partyto the tune of "Yes We Can" and DID! They are doing what the set out to do...bring the U.S.A crashing. And they're close. Even if they are ousted in 2010 and 2012 its gonna be loooooong uphill battle to get this country back pre LBJ. I'm 56 and I don't think I will see it in my lifetime.

450 just a little reminder - this started the day after he was sworn in...
THE WHITE HOUSE Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release January 21, 2009
EXECUTIVE ORDER 13489 - - - - - - -
PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and in order to establish policies and procedures governing the assertion of executive privilege by incumbent and former Presidents in connection with the release of Presidential records by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) pursuant to the Presidential Records Act of 1978, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Definitions. For purposes of this order:
(a) "Archivist" refers to the Archivist of the United States or his designee. (b) "NARA" refers to the National Archives and Records Administration.
(c) "Presidential Records Act" refers to the Presidential Records Act, 44 U.S.C. 2201-2207.
(d) "NARA regulations" refers to the NARA regulations implementing the Presidential Records Act, 36 C.F.R. Part 1270.
(e) "Presidential records" refers to those documentary materials maintained by NARA pursuant to the Presidential Records Act, including Vice Presidential records.
(f) "Former President" refers to the former President during whose term or terms of office particular Presidential records were created.
(g) A "substantial question of executive privilege" exists if NARA's disclosure of Presidential records might impair national security (including the conduct of foreign relations), law enforcement, or the deliberative processes of the executive branch.
(h) A "final court order" is a court order from which no appeal may be taken.
Sec. 2. Notice of Intent to Disclose Presidential Records. (a) When the Archivist provides notice to the incumbent and former Presidents of his intent to disclose Presidential records pursuant to section 1270.46 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist, using any guidelines provided by the incumbent and former Presidents, shall identify any specific materials, the disclosure of which he believes may raise a substantial question of executive privilege. However, nothing in this order is intended to affect the right of the incumbent or former Presidents to invoke executive privilege with respect to materials not identified by the Archivist. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative. (b) Upon the passage of 30 days after receipt by the incumbent and former Presidents of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Archivist may disclose the records covered by the notice, unless during that time period the Archivist has received a claim of executive privilege by the incumbent or former President or the Archivist has been instructed by the incumbent President or his designee to extend the time period for a time certain and with reason for the extension of time provided in the notice. If a shorter period of time is required under the circumstances set forth in section 1270.44 of the NARA regulations, the Archivist shall so indicate in the notice.
Sec. 3. Claim of Executive Privilege by Incumbent President. (a) Upon receipt of a notice of intent to disclose Presidential records, the Attorney General (directly or through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel) and the Counsel to the President shall review as they deem appropriate the records covered by the notice and consult with each other, the Archivist, and such other executive agencies as they deem appropriate concerning whether invocation of executive privilege is justified.
(b) The Attorney General and the Counsel to the President, in the exercise of their discretion and after appropriate review and consultation under subsection (a) of this section, may jointly determine that invocation of executive privilege is not justified. The Archivist shall be notified promptly of any such determination.
(c) If either the Attorney General or the Counsel to the President believes that the circumstances justify invocation of executive privilege, the issue shall be presented to the President by the Counsel to the President and the Attorney General.
(d) If the President decides to invoke executive privilege, the Counsel to the President shall notify the former President, the Archivist, and the Attorney General in writing of the claim of privilege and the specific Presidential records to which it relates. After receiving such notice, the Archivist shall not disclose the privileged records unless directed to do so by an incumbent President or by a final court order.
Sec. 4. Claim of Executive Privilege by Former President. (a) Upon receipt of a claim of executive privilege by a living former President, the Archivist shall consult with the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel), the Counsel to the President, and such other executive agencies as the Archivist deems appropriate concerning the Archivist's determination as to whether to honor the former President's claim of privilege or instead to disclose the Presidential records notwithstanding the claim of privilege. Any determination under section 3 of this order that executive privilege shall not be invoked by the incumbent President shall not prejudice the Archivist's determination with respect to the former President's claim of privilege.
(b) In making the determination referred to in subsection (a) of this section, the Archivist shall abide by any instructions given him by the incumbent President or his designee unless otherwise directed by a final court order. The Archivist shall notify the incumbent and former Presidents of his determination at least 30 days prior to disclosure of the Presidential records, unless a shorter time period is required in the circumstances set forth in section 1270.44 of the NARA regulations. Copies of the notice for the incumbent President shall be delivered to the President (through the Counsel to the President) and the Attorney General (through the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel). The copy of the notice for the former President shall be delivered to the former President or his designated representative.
Sec. 5. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) authority granted by law to a department or agency, or the head thereof; or (ii) functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budget, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(b) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations. (c) This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
Sec. 6. Revocation. Executive Order 13233 of November 1, 2001, is revoked.

453 Would it not be better to create a system and macroeconomic structure that renders all of their petty games irrelevant? Do we want the game of arguing over the different outcomes or an end to the game altogether under terms of our choosing?

These two questions are what deserve answers...
