And This is Revolution
Canada Free Press, by Daniel Greenfield

Original Article

Posted By:ole buzzard, 1/15/2013 1:11:25 PM

There are a few things worth knowing about revolutions. Most people don’t participate in them, even if the history books often make it seem otherwise. Revolutions are thought up by small groups of people who then make it everyone’s business. Or alternately they don’t. And those are the revolutions that never happen.Most people, at any given time and place, are dissatisfied with the government and believe, rightly, that whoever is in charge is guilty of stealing from them, oppressing them and making it impossible for them to live their lives in peace

Doubt we´ll have a revolution, unless taxes are greatly increased on the middle class. A Value Added Tax or national sales tax could do it.

We´ll probably continue inflating the currency and monetizing the debt. Government will blame business, and the sheep will believe it.

A must read. Greenfield makes several good points. Essential is that he includes the importance of a sympathetic military. As recent events in the Middle East demonstrate: loyalty of the military rank and file often determines the outcome.

Let´s pray that our people in uniform place loyalty to the Constitution and its principles above that to any individual - especially the POTUS. (www.oathkeepers.org)

My husband and I have talked about revolution being the result of Obama and the libs trying to destroy our Country. The one thing that I have always contended is the US Military would never take up arms against the people. Local and state police would also never do such a thing against their neighbors. Never forget that this administration and the dems are the ones who continue to find ways to keep the military votes from being counted.

A tremendous piece! Thanks for posting it! It brings a long lost hopeful feeling back to heart. The warnings and the reasoning are right on target as is the present day uncertainty both of the government and the people. We have many hands to push on this "wall".

Both the Chinese and Russians have done the research: You have to bring in the troops from far away. Local troops are reluctant to shoot their neighbors. Not so, distant troops. And that distant is sometimes NOT measured in miles but in culture.

Interesting food for thought. Zippy is playing with fire. He is so narcissistic that he doesn´t realize that his support isn´t what he thinks it is and that the military would not follow him.

Spoke to a young person in the Special Forces and he said that Zippy has zip support.

If it comes to it, I think we can write off most of the senior level commanders. They have been infected with and have been pushing the PC garbage for years.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use linked with

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Glaring limits of the Civil Rights
Act: We need to redistribute wealth

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
