Perspective on the execution of Osama by Obama

Jack Hunter, the Southern Avenger blogger and writer that assisted Senator Rand Paul write The Tea Party goes to Washington, has a new Videoblog post at his site giving some perspective about the Dear Leader's supervision of the hit on THAT guy in Pakistan on Sunday/Monday.

Obama, what a guy.  The President is always making personal sacrifices for this great country of ours.

 Meanwhile, I saw this picture of our current Decider, taken this past Sunday after he was rushed back from the 9th hole.  

See if you can pick out the "leader" in the room:  

Who's the dope at the White House that screen's photos for release to the press?

Obama, riding the crest of the blip that is the (extrajudicial) death of bin Laden...

Do you want change to come to this country? Think more of the same first.

I think if the mind-numbed masses shouting "USA, USA" this week vote him back into office late next year, it may speed up the collapse of Lincoln's Empire. It's actually the reason I didn't mind so much that he was elected in the first place.  The economics of the Statists will hasten their own end.

We may yet get "change" in this country, except it'll be the change that can only be accomplished by exercise of the 2nd Amendment, 10th Amendment, and a return to sound money

"It is not easy to destroy the greatest empire in the history of mankind"

"It is not easy to destroy the greatest empire in the history of mankind. The 20th Century was the American Century, but as with all empires, the combination of hubris, monetary debasement, imperial overreach and delusional overconfidence have set in motion the inevitable downfall of the American Empire

The policies, decisions, beliefs, and institutions implemented over decades have led the country to the threshold of financial disaster. Based on my observations, a catastrophic combination of demographics, fiat currency debasement, titanic levels of debt, smothering taxation, power in the hands of the few and Wall Street greed have led us to peak Empire. 

It will be downhill from here as we experience collapse, revolution and ultimately, retribution for the guilty and presumed guilty. I have already addressed the Baby Boomer generation’s contribution to our current plight, to the delight and accolades of Boomers across the land in For a Few Dollars More – Part One.  

The Boomers were a victim of their size and the timing of their arrival on the scene of empire collapse. Their delusions of debt based wealth and me first attitude could not have been satiated without the creation of the Federal Reserve and the institution of the personal income tax in 1913..."

"...To boil the entire 2008 financial collapse down to one word, it would be:  DEBT.

Three decades of ever increasing levels of consumer, corporate, and government debt eventually led to an unprecedented implosion. It was as predictable in 2008, to those who understand the fiat monetary system, as it was to Ludwig von Mises decades ago: 

 There is no means of avoiding a final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as a result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

Bloomberg: Central Banks to buy gold, driving price higher

Central banks that were net sellers of gold a decade ago are buying the precious metal to reduce their reliance on the dollar as a reserve currency, signaling demand that may extend a record rally in prices. 

As developing countries accelerate purchases, gold may reach $2,000 an ounce this year, compared with a record of $1,569.80 today in New York, said Robert McEwen, the chief executive officer of producer U.S. Gold Corp. Euro Pacific Capital’s Michael Pento, who correctly predicted gold’s highs for the past two years, forecasts a 2011 high of $1,600. 

Prices reached a record 15 times this month on demand from investors seeking an alternative to the dollar after the currency slumped to the lowest since 2009, U.S. debt widened, and the Federal Reserve signaled April 27 that borrowing costs will remain near zero percent for an extended period. The economy in China, the biggest foreign holder of U.S. Treasuries, grew 9.7 percent in the first quarter.
