Hide it, and don't talk about it

  I take no position on buying gold, except this.  If you're going to buy it,

What do we do with Nazis? That's right!

But Rodge, why do you want to us to
hang Reid, Pelosi and all the Democrats?
Because it will save the Republic, and if you try  it and get caught,  I can say "Hey, I was in Omaha."  But if it works I'll still get schools named after me for being the father of the revolution.   Oh, then there's this:

I'm embedding this video even though I can't hear it now that my sound whatchamacallits were fried by a Microsoft update.  But I'll bet it's good enough to make most of you want another 2 million man march on Washington, and do some serious smiting this time. Here's some no sound decoder necessary background.

A senior aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told that it is “likely” that Reid will use H.R. 1586—a bill passed by the House in March to impose a 90-percent tax on bonuses paid to employees of certain bailed-out financial institutions—as a “shell” for enacting the final version of the Senate’s health care bill, which Reid is responsible for crafting.

Under the procedure, the substance of House Resolution 1586 would be removed and replaced with the entire Senate health care package. The maneuver would initially require the support of 60 senators to vote for cloture on the motion to proceed to H.R. 1586 (i.e., end debate on the congressional procedure and move forward).
If Reid wins 60 votes, then debate begins on his health care package. Reid could then decide to block all amendments and attempt to get a vote on the entire package.
I'm just kidding btw.  I would be extremely disappointed not to be included in that grand necktie party.

EXCLUSIVE: Chinese spymaster complains about news leak
Bill Gertz

China's most senior military intelligence official, a veteran of spy operations in Europe and cyberspace, recently made a secret visit to the United States and complained to the Pentagon about the press leak on the Chinese submarine that secretly shadowed the USS Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier in 2006.

Maj. Gen. Yang Hui said senior Chinese leaders suspected the Pentagon deliberately disclosed the encounter as part of a U.S. effort to send a political message of displeasure to China's military. The Song-class submarine surfaced undetected near the carrier, and Gen. Yang said the Chinese believed the leak was timed to coincide with the visit of a senior U.S. admiral.

Gen. Yang told U.S. officials during meetings that Chinese leaders were so angered by the disclosure of the Chinese submarine maneuver that they considered canceling the visit at the time by Adm. Gary Roughead, then-Pacific Fleet commander who has since been promoted to chief of naval operations.

Communist variants Marxism-Leninism, Stalinism, Maoism, Fascism, and nascent Obamunism -- tactical differences like agrarianism v. industrialism aside, are all the same evil  thing. Throw in  socialists too.  They are after all communists who haven't yet had to use guns against the reactionaries*.   They all crush the human spirit and destroy critical thought.  You know you're mired at least knee deep is this morass when public discourse becomes choked with bizarre gobbledygook  like that reported by  Bill Gertz.  What difference between China's outrage, feigned or real, over sun shining on them, and Democrat outrage over town hall protestors exposing details of Obamacare legislation?  Will we, for the rest of our existence have to pretend that pro wrestling is real, or that we are free men?  Because we're being preconditioned for just that condition. 

* actually not even that is true if you consider that every law passed is ultimately enforced by law enforcement guns.
