I’ve been reading the Keeper of the Flame series by Joel Rosenberg (different one than the Last Jihad guy, this guy wrote fantasy and he died a couple of years ago) and he had a chapter quote — you know those quotes at the top of new chapters authors like to use?

This one struck me: “In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.” — Confucius

So tell me, which do you think we live in?

The Occutwits bash the so-called one percent, while sucking down lattes and whining and moaning about their worthless $100,000 degrees in naked female goat herding studies. The president, in what is clearly class warfare rhetoric, tell us all how the productive class isn’t paying its “fair share,” while being completely unable to articulate what a “fair share” actually is.

Of course we know that’s a moving target. “Fair share,” in the language of the Transnational Progressive (which is really nothing but a neo-feudalist) which is what Barack Obama is, “fair share” means “more than whatever you’re currently paying.”

Unless, of course, you’re one of the elite.

You see, in the society the tranzis (as author Tom Kratman calls them) would create there is an aristocracy. You see this aristocracy emerging. It’s the leadership of the U.N. in which certain positions are already virtually hereditary. It’s the ruling class, in both parties, which has a vested interest in maintaining their power and privilege, for themselves and their families. In the media elites which shape public opinion and help the ruling class to maintain their privileges and in the celebrities which support them with their money and publicity. Too, it is also in some, not all, but enough, corporations who wish to maintain their power and prestige and so have struck a devil’s bargain with the tranzis — General Electric anyone?

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the last few presidential elections. Bushes and Clintons and Kennedys, oh my.

Look at the Blunt and Caranhan dynasties in Missouri. Even Ron Paul is getting in on the act with his son in the Senate and rumors of an alliance between him and Romney which could see Rand Paul as a vice presidential candidate or in a Romney cabinet.

In the Media realm, it’s far from unusual for a single company to own both metro papers in towns that still have them. Philadelphia for instance.

So our masters in the media and in the effete ruling class have gone out of their way to make being wealthy something to be ashamed of. To make companies and people feel they must apologize for doing well in life.

I don’t understand this way of thinking. But I see it all the time.

I say no more. No more class warfare. No more race baiting and no more of Obama or the tranzis who seek to, not govern, but rule us all.

The above quote lays it all out — this country, indeed this world is badly governed. It’s time for the real 99 percent. The 99 percent who work hard. Who have always said “you mind your knitting and I shall mind mine,” to stand up and say “no more!”

We will not tolerate you and your kind any more. We may be governed, we shall not be ruled!

My friends, Western Civilization is on the ropes. This is it, the last chance we have to fix it. If I learned anything from the late, great Andrew Breitbart it is that we must speak and not be silent.

Not be silent? Nay, we must scream, we must shout, we must force the ruling class to hear us.

We must not go quietly into that good night — or the rest of the world will follow us into the dark, and it will be centuries before we emerge again — if we ever do.

All IMHO, of course.
