Will The Sleeper Awaken?

The country is somnambulant; the question simply is; will the sleeper awaken, and if so, when?

It is clear to those who are not card carrying members of the President’s cult that to bring the country into compliance with the Presidents ideological vision a new normal had to be established. The ‘new normal’ takes time. For instance, years of high gas prices eventually creates the ‘new normal’ for gas prices; we lose track of the fact that they are double what they were four years ago and rising again. We see a brief dust up over coal plant closings and then…..nothing. Electricity costs will follow the gas price curve as you remove the most cost efficient way to produce electricity. Somnambulant!

When the President spoke of “spreading the wealth”; when he told you that you ‘couldn’t expect to just keep your thermostat at 72 degrees’, when ‘fair share’ became a watch word of his campaign even though ‘fair share’ was never defined; it became clear that these ideas and beliefs foreshadowed a ‘new normal’. When Green Energy failures are followed by more rhetoric and investment while the opportunity to generate domestic source productivity is under attack, when ‘political’ Generals and the Secretary of State say global warming is the primary threat and challenge to the U.S. it’s just a matter of time till 72 degrees becomes nothing more than a fond memory; the ‘new normal’. All it takes is time and the President has four more years to achieve it.

Dependency skyrockets! The federal government and the President encourage that dependency. Dependency becomes the bedrock of the new normal; productivity and responsibility on the verge of being outvoted by dependency. The ‘new normal’ is a redefinition of America.

GDP growth is at four tenths of one percent; the ‘new normal’. Un/under employment at 15% is the ‘new normal’. Variances of opinion are not disagreement, its racism or sexism, or ageism or some other ‘ism’. ObamaCare promised to cover everyone, the CBO says that number of Americans who will remain uncovered is 30 million. Covering 30 million was a primary justification for passing ObamaCare; the Big Lie writ large. The Big Lie is a foundation of the new normal as it has been in the past, many times.

The Fort Hood victims were not the victims of terrorism as Major Hassan shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he indiscriminately mowed down fellow soldiers; it’s work place violence. Benghazi is a cover up of monumental proportions; the ‘new normal’. Sequester cuts, as implemented by the President’s administration, are intended to make you suffer, so that the President can say “I told you so, see I’m right”. Your suffering takes a back seat to the President’s narcissism. There is, however, no back seat for Syria or the Palestinians or Egypt, hundreds of millions for folks who hate us is no problem under the ‘new normal’. White House visitations for the Muslim Brotherhood, no problem! The popular uprising in Iran, begging for U.S. support, suffers murder and torture with no word of support from the President. China bitch slaps the U.S. day after day, no response. If fact, the folks in China hacking our systems were educated right here.

Ah, but the President can’t do this alone. The ‘new normal’ requires that dominant media organizations play along. They have! Every bit of bad economic news is ‘unexpected’. It’s still, incomprehensively, Bush’s fault. NBC did not report on Benghazi for over 30 days. The President frequently ‘misspeaks’ but you won’t find it on the evening news. Major news organizations mimic Presidential positions as they hop on the demonization train with gusto, the mere attempt at objectivity absent. The stimulus did not fail, it wasn’t big enough! Disagreement is racism. Reducing the scope of government is not prudent it’s anti government. Demanding accountability is the immature ramblings of political opponents. If the President says so the media presents it as being gilded in gold, if opponents speak out its just petty politics. Can anyone name a significant investigative effort of the Obama administration undertaken by the main stream media that actually held the President accountable for anything? Help me out here because, I’m at a loss!

The ‘new normal’ is less. Less choice, (unless it’s abortion) less freedom, fewer firearms, less information, less economic opportunity, fewer jobs, less benefit of personal initiative; but most critically less lifestyle; everything from your thermostat to the foods you eat. The new normal demands success guilt unless, of course, you’re committed to the cult; then your success is acceptable.

The ‘new normal’ is upon us. It creeps along demanding it’s time to become engrained in our perceptions. There is a reason why the President keeps hitting the same issues in the same way, time after time. The reason is time. The ‘new normal’ takes time.

    Very good lead to article:

    “The country is somnambulant; the question simply is; will the sleeper awaken, and if so, when?”

    I fondly remember my youth far more than my elder years considering the circumstance of THIS WORLD. BUT, but, but, THERE were problems then as well. Called civil rights. Woodrow Wilson had his thing. JFK his. Etc. Going through the hills of Arkansas I saw bathrooms for men, woman, and colored. Water fountain for whites only. Going through Georgia with my Dad pulling a Airstrean with wall to wall Black people surrounding the road we traveled. Was told by police not to stop.

    SEEN too many interviews where person knew painfully little about government.

    NO. America IS NOT asleep AT THE WHEEL 100%. Oh I agree de-sensitizing works. Repeat, repeat enough and some see AS TRUE. If my pants are sprayed with liquid I know jeans are wet until they dry or removed. In France they took SO MUCH then Revolution.

    Pocketbook RULES. The GREAT LIBERAL John Kerry parked his fancy boat in another State to save $$$’s in tax. 2010 the GREAT RUMBLE in defiant of demo passed bills. GRANTED the obamaittes didn’t vote IN STRENGHT. Teddy was FOR GREEN energy BUT not seen from HIS HOUSE.

    There are certain peculiarities to buma’s madness core values ? He was against same sex marriage in CA in his beginning. He has YET to accomplish or try very hard for immigration law. Just show against States. Women’s right of equal pay but NOT in his own backyard. buma is nearly ALL SHOW in many of his hard core beliefs ?!? OR is it political mumbo jumbo mostly.

    The masquerade is CONTROL. Election of 2010 PROVES voters are not fully under THEIR CONTROL. TO THE CONTRARY. The poison apple has not been swallowed. Another American Revolution is possible and perhaps probable. LONNNG AWAITED bumcare will not BE as DELIEVERED, WHENEVER that ** Day of reckoning ** leaves the starting gate completely.

    Even demos would not pass buma’s budget…

    “The new normal takes time”…”The country is somnambulant”

    NO the country isn’t asleep!….IT’S BEEN DRUGGED AND IT STARTED IN THE 60’S with acceptance of moral behavior being a matter of objectivity,not being judgemental of others,and anything goes if it doesn’t harm anyone.Lets not however confuse the need to correct social injustices like segregation and protecting civil rights with the moral decay that has rotted our society since the 60’s.

    We have different levels of analysis problems.Some seem superficial like if we just repair campaign finance or persuade politicians not to be so partisan all will be well.But not only won’t they change but we can’t even seem to achieve even these modest objectives.We dig to deep we find our problems to be standing on the backs of other problems all the way down.Since everything is caused by something else and arrows point in many directions it is obvious that deeper analysis is needed. One example of this is education and the voucher system where kids do not have the opportunity to go to a school where they could get a better education.Correcting this problem is obstruted by the strong teachers unions.A second example would be a single parent trying to raise a kid and work.The result would be little parental involvement in there every day life and less male role models.

    This decay didn’t come overnight and it surely won’t disappear over night either.Over the years little by little society came to accept couples living together as acceptable,having chidren out of wedlock became acceptable and now same sex marriage is being accepted by society through politicial correctness and moral decay.The whole time the right simply slowed it down and didn’t change anyones opinion.

    Well the question is why did it happen and how? In the 60’s the left felt they could change things by protesting and the extreme factions like the “Weathermen” felt they could do it by blowing it up.It took a while but they learnt as Mark Steyn recently said “When it comes to destroying core civilizational institutions trying to blow them up like Bill Ayers is less effective than hallowing them out from within.” Whats meant by this? Work within the system to accomplish your goals by attacking institutions that teach decipline and responsibility and stand in your way like the church,military and the law.The radicals from the 60’s are now teaching our children and grandchildren the same contempt and lack of morals and respect they had.They use the court system to re-define morals through a prism of fairness and empathy instead of based on the rule of law and believe the constitution is an outdated piece of paper.

    Most of all however they feel that if you eliminate religion anything can be made to sound acceptable.The left has a complete lack of attachment to institutional religion asserting that the church is to focused on rules.They believe that the church is like a Chinese menu where they can choose one belief from column “A” and one belief from column “B”.Where the church is a democracy and you get to vote on the beliefs of the church like gays and women clergy.And why do they think this way?….Because they confuse theology with a democracy using again ……fairness as their compass point.They highlight Jerry Falwell and the sex scandels of the church to rationalize there hatred by saying “If this is religion I want no part of it.”while their main objective is to destroy religions hold on morals. The church has been so marginalized by these attacks that little is heard from the individual ministers on Sunday or the church in general about same sex marriage.

    We are through the looking glass on this.The people of the United States voted for more government last November and the faint consequences of the sequester hasn’t made any impression that their decision was wrong.”A NEW NORMAL TAKES TIME”

    The guy who manipulates MY QUOTES TO TRY & DEGRADE ME BY misrepresenting MY THOUGHTS is expert on morality ?

    Think NOT.

    ADMIT your mistake & “SIN no more”. Taking the HIGH ROAD begins with one small step. THIS was MY FAMILY VALUES. I don’t park it on a mantle TO BE DISPLAYED for SHOW but ATTEMPT TO LIVE BY. TAKE NOTE !!!

    WHEN in doubt, which should be nearly always, DON’T quote me. Understanding IS NOT your STRONG SUITE or more apropos, dishonest & deceiving assessment. THE others who post now never ask me to clarify my remarks AS IF I was misunderstood. ANOTHER cheap shot of yours. OR is THAT ALL you have to counter my points .

    MAYBE this will be the last of the SALT I will rub into your wounds for your latest episode of discretion . Have saved to my documents for re-birth IF YOU go ballistic again. Which SEEMS LIKELY. HAS ALWAYS BEEN SO since your beginning here…

    Speaking of “Will the Sleeper Awaken”

    For all establishment republicans that are NAIVE ENOUGH to think that the republican party is being hurt by the Tea Party, conservatives and candidates making stupid remarks.

    Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is on trial in Philadelphia but not for just killing babies outside the womb but also for killing a mother through reckless use of anesthesia.Network television coverage of the trial …….ZERO ON ABC,NBC,CBS,MSNBC,NPR,AND PBS.CNN had one sentence concerning the story on 21st of March.Meanwhile ABC,NBC,and CBS piled up 96 stories on Todd Akins stupid comments and wallowed in outrage over Richard Mourdocks remarks on rape thus killing any chance of their being elected.

    Meanwhile everytime the liberals fumble the football the RNC and republican leadership pick the ball up,brush them off and hand it over to them to continue where they left off.MSM DEMONIZES YOU WHILE GIVING A FREE RIDE TO THERE OWN AND YOU HAVE THE GALL TO BLAME THE TEA PARTY AND CONSERVATIVES FOR HOLDING THE PARTY BACK?

    “Will the Sleeper Awaken?”

    From the editorial of The Washington Examiner entitled “Culture Wars are All Obama Has Left” dated 2nd of April 2013:

    “When former Vermount Governor(and current DNC chairmen)Howard Dean began campaigning for the 2004 Democratic Presidential nomination he would regurarly say “I’m tired of fighting elections on guns,God,and gays.We’re going to fight this election on our turf which is going to be jobs,education and healthcare.”

    Well Mr.Dean FIGHTING GUNS,GOD AND GAYS SEEMS TO BE THE FOUNDATION YOU ARE LEADING YOUR PARTIES AGENDA TOWARD TODAY !

    White House Senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer complains about being asked questions by reporters that were originally reported by the “Drudge Report” saying “It hurts what we’re trying to do…..”

    It seems the White House is only comfortable taking pre-approved softball questions from the in their pocket MSM.It’s also fairly obvious Bob Woodward wasn’t “helping what the White House was trying to do” and why the White House had their henchmen in the MSM attack him recently.
