Barking the Beagle

Kalifornians and so-called “progressives” talk about income equality as did Hugo Chavez, but they don’t learn a thing from places like Venezuela. When they get what they asked for, then the bubble bursts and inequality is far worse because the bottom drops out. They are destroying their own safety net and also that of all seniors, who in fact worked their lives to pay for their old age and health insurance.

Sitting here on the beach in Montevideo on the “Day that will live in infamy” wondering whether or not Millennials will step up and be the Next Great Generation or the Generation that will live infamy. When the crisis is eventually triggered and the credit bubble finally bursts, at that point of weakness the free world and “great satan” will be attacked by the overwhelming demographic and single focused mindshare of Islamists…inside and outside our gates. There won’t be enough money for America to fight that war and also to pay to sustain the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security safety net for their baby boomer parents. Baby boomers worked their lives to pay huge sums for these safety nets for their parents, The Greatest Generation who put their lives on the line in WWII to save their family, their community, their nation and their way of life. Baby boomers will be too old to fight, except a few generals and admirals maybe and except to take on some jihadis in own their yards and towns. The fight will fall to the GenXers and the Millennials the follow them. Even if Boomers give up the safety net they are promised, which they paid for their parents, which is for many boomers all that they have to live on, will GenXers and Millennials in fact take up arms en mass and defend their homeland? Given the prevalence of diaper safety pins, safe zones, microaggression anxiety, sophomoric misinformation and complacency, I wonder whether we will be dead or dhimmi? If I wee alive in the Great Depression when FDR et al installed it, I would be the last person to have supported the collectivist socialist safety net. But that is what we have. I can see a free market replacement for that net too, but I can’t imagine that net being built when the world is at war and unlike WWII there is guerrilla war in American streets similar to that in Lebanon or Irag. It’s like the 1930’s when the American Nazis were marching in American streets while Hitler was preparing to blitz war Europe. But today we have easily 10 times as many jihadis here and a current president and incoming head of the DNC, mass media, Hollywood, and universities preaching tolerance and teaching amorality and weakness to the generations that must fight an internal and external world war against armies demographically 10 times larger than Hitler’s armies and even more brainwashed and ruthless. The theocrats have been waiting and training for this demographic advantage, when they can call their streets to fight big and little Satan, all the while pushing their invasion of Europe and America by their cultural jihad built on tolerance. I think they are more strategic than to attack on Inauguration Day, a high point. They will wait until we are suffering from austerity or economic crash so that our generations are divided. We could grow out of this mess with Trump’s leadership, but that is unlikely with almost half the nation, the UN, the EU, media, and global elites pulling against Trump and us. Baby boomers, most of whom are against war, we have a fight on our hands whether we want it or not.

Looking at the muddy river Rio Plata and far across to the horizon, as far as my eyes can see, Argentina is still far out of sight across this broad river. Somewhere over there is my next destination.  Darwin had his revelation on evolution down here on the Beagle voyage on the channel between the continent and Tierra Del Fuego.  I hope I have one too.
