Bill Whittle Meets Black Sabbath

Bill Whittle retains his restrained pose here during The End of the Beginning:
. . .which title is the same as the opening cut for the latest Black Sabbath record:

Is this the end of the beginning?
Or the beginning of the end?
Losing control or are you winning?
Is your life real or just pretend?

Reanimation of the sequence
Rewind the future to the past.
To find the source of the solution;
The system has to be recast.

The demolition of the entire American economy seems to be the goal of this Administration. What makes Black Sabbath an especially useful choice for a soundtrack is the sort of slow, plodding, methodical swath of acoustic destruction they bring.

“Methodical swath” is precisely how I’d characterize what Obama has achieved: he has blown money in the multi-trillion dollar range, and there has been seemingly nothing that could stop him. No amount of protest, parliamentary effort, elections, history, math, or common sense can do more than delay President Shiv-a Country.

It’s so bad, we have the spectacle of Paul Ryan serving up a total steamer of a budget with a toss of his head and a “Well, best we could do” attitude. Has there ever, ONCE, been a historical case of a spending cut occurring as planned in a future year? Because it’s as though Ryan is on board with “If you like your spending cut, you can keep your spending cut,” where ‘keep’ means ‘just keep pushing that noise into the future’.

What’s desperately needed is the leadership and the will to say “Enough” and articulate reform platform that says “The collapse has gone on for long enough; here is a new course.”

    Well, the stated goal of Bolshevism is the elimination of the middle class. That’s priority one, for them. To accomplish that today, they undertake two key strategies of economic terrorism:

    – Raising the price of healthcare
    – Raising the price of electricity

    Know your adversary. Predict their moves.

    Leadership on that scale requires a Tyrant, in the classic sense. Obama is a Tyrant, ruling by fiat, kept in check by an armed citizenry and a military that is still egalitarian and libertarian in outlook.

    Geez, Smitty, and here I was thinking I was the only one who said to himself on seeing the title to Virtual President’s video, “Wow. Billy just riffed off Black Sabbath!”

    I tarted up the analysis a little bit more than that, but that is the gist.

    […] The reform we need is a renewed sense of self-government, so that ideas such as ObamaCare are laughed down outright, instead of plodding forward to the tune of Black Sabbath. […]
