  5. ^ Overlay that map with large population centers.
    Cities are, by definition, socialist.

  6. Sondra, it’s the people who voted Obama (and the Cali voters) who do not understand. But they will soon, unless God pities us and restores the economy, in spite of what these morons want to do to it.

  8. From the link:

    Jefferson hated cities. He thought they spread disease and bad ideas, and believed the perfect republic was composed of educated farmers who by night read Homer in the original Greek.”

    Somehow I doubt there were many outside of Jefferson himself and a few colleagues who read anything in Greek. But we did read, early on. Tocqueville noted (eraly 1800s) that almost every backwoods farmer had an axe, a Bible, and the current local newspaper.

    (I figure the axe was to while away cold winter nights playing guitar riffs.)

    But Founders were farmers, because that’s what the country was all about in those days. Since then, the small farmer has been mostly eliminated, and our glorious leaders and their patriotic planners are working hard on moving everybody into the cities.

    Easier to keep track of people that way.

  10. Why is there not a revolt over the election fraud nationwide?

  11. See that blue canker on the west coast of Florida? That’s Tampa/St. Pete. Just north of me.

    An uninsured/unlicensed guy in a $250 car rear-ended me there. His car was so beat up, you couldn’t tell it had just been in an accident. Except it wouldn’t run. I had to get my Leatherman out to reattach his battery. And then jump start it.

    I’m 97% sure he voted for Barry40-O. Which is discouraging on so many levels.

    Condolences to all.

  12. Mary – How are they figuring that??!!!

    Is that compared to voter turnout from the previous election? Are the “cards” the number of ballots that were submitted? If so, there’s definitely something out of order there!

  13. Headmissy, Doug, Airdale, and all y’all,

    We still hold the resources, if not the infrastructure.

    You tell me of one self-sufficent rancher/farmer and rural family that will not be able to make it without this madness we have allowed to come be.

    D and I are selling everything that is not of use, stacking water and fodder…keeping the vehicles stoked with fuel. Ammo and arms and reloading comes next.

    Hey!!!! ….if the Aggies can stride into Tuscaloosa and whup-a-fit on the Crimson Tide….LOL!

    Y’all have been a great and grand support. Hope to meet you in person in Wyoming or Texas.

  14. Sven: Then there’s this:

    FDA War on raw milk farmers

    … the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is waging a clandestine war on raw milk dairy farmers through a network of government spies who are coached on infiltration and social engineering techniques.

    The Family Farm Is Being Systematically Wiped Out Of Existence In America

    According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today.

    According to the story, it’s as much Big Agri as the FDA

    Today, only about 6 percent of all farmers are under the age of 35.

    FDA ruins family farms

    (Video)

    They got their feet right in the cow pie.

  15. Hey, Mary – From the Rott, here’s another story about greater than 100% voter turnout.

    What gives?

    Comment by PeggyU — November 10, 2012 @ 8:20 pm

  16. PeggyU, I know nothing but what I find on this and similar blogs.

    Comment by mary — November 10, 2012 @ 8:25 pm

  17. ZZMike: Alex Jones might be 99.94% right about the small farms deal, but having worked on a dairy farm, I can tell you that I will never (short of starvation, and prolly not even then) consume raw milk, cheese or any of it.

    Not after having to wash the shit off their titties twice a day before milking them. An automatic pasteurizer is cheap. It heats the milk to 180┬░ for a few minutes and you’re done.

  18. Why is there not a revolt over the election fraud nationwide?

    What state do you live in? Who is your governor? How did she get there?

    Revolts start locally, and expand Joe.

  19. Spin – She – if you mean Gregoire – has abdicated her throne and will soon be replaced by her drooling heir apparent, Jay Inslee.

    I believe there may still be investigators sorting through the mess that was the 2004 election. Hard to clean up the fraud, after the fact!

  20. Hard to clean up the fraud, after the fact!

    I agree, and in both cases the hard work wasn’t done before and on election day. I just found it odd that a WA resident would call for a national revolt less than a week after the polls closed yet hasn’t sorted out his home state election from 8 years ago.
