Election Blues

The election confirmed what we already knew about the nation: people want to keep murdering babies, embracing sodomy and bowing to the Almighty Welfare State. My disjointed thoughts:

[1] John Roberts in his decision on the “Affordable Care Act” said, “But the Court does not express any opinion on the wisdom of the Affordable Care Act. Under the Constitution, that judgment is reserved to the people.” Maybe Roberts thought people were smart enough to vote against national bankruptcy, hyperinflation and destitution. He thought wrong.

[2] Christians need to pray daily for the next four years for the health of Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas and even Kennedy. They are the last thin reed holding us back from total barbarism, and really it’s too late even for that. But the alternative of more deconstructionist hacks on the Bench tearing apart what is left of the Old Republic is frightening. Not that I think a sane President will be elected in 2016, because I think it’s all over now and we need to gird for our own Weimar Republic like collapse. Will you put your 401k in a wheelbarrow and buy a loaf of bread with it?

[3] The degree of damage that George W. did to the GOP cannot be underestimated. His insane spending (dwarfed by Obama) eliminated GOP credibility on the budget. 2008 was largely a revolt against endless and pointless war, something the mainstream GOP has yet to admit. Think of how different things might be if he had only done surgical strikes on Afghanistan and not invaded, and also had not invaded Iraq. Trillions of dollars and countless lives wasted for a pointless project.


[1] We did not have a “brokered convention.”

[2] The “bruising” GOP primary didn’t have any impact.

[3] Israel didn’t bomb Iran prior to the election.

[4] The White Horse prophecy was not fulfilled.

[5] Obama didn’t drop Biden.


Yesterday I went to the library and bought several books that they had on sale. Amongst those books was one called “World Within Walls” by Donald Keene. It’s about Japanese literature of the pre-modern era. I’m not really sure why I bought it. I paid no attention to who the author was.
This morning, I was looking at the NY Times online, and I saw a headline about an author who is becoming a Japanese citizen, despite being American. He is an old and noted scholar of Japan. His name is Donald Keene! I wasn’t sure when I read the name if it was the author of my book, but I came down to the library, and sure enough, it is. I’m not sure what that means, if anything, but I find it very intriguing.
