IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH REGARD TO THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP, CONSIDER YOURSELF BRAIN DEAD!

I keep asking myself why I have not made time to post anything lately, and I keep using the excuse, “I have too much going on,” and in many ways that has been true. There is no doubt I’ve had a few major life changes that have taken place, some welcome, others not so much. I also have several huge decisions I need to make within the next week bearing down on me that I am not looking forward to, the home I own is closing on Friday, and I recently moved. The move is about the only thing I’ve been excited about, because my new place is gorgeous, and The Last Great Stand even has an official office now!!!

So is that REALLY why I have not posted anything of value in at least two weeks or so? Give me a break. I can’t even say that with a straight face. Of the 4,000+ posts in over three years, 85% of them have been between the hours of midnight and 6am when I don’t sleep to get important news out. I’ve NEVER let being too busy stop me. Truthfully, when I sat down tonight to begin writing, I was overwhelmed with frustration, anger, and maybe a bit of rage when it came to thinking about the status quo of the nation. If I’m being honest with myself, I’ve been avoiding the negativity that anyone with an IQ over 6 cannot help but notice when hearing about current events these days. I’m getting close to the point where I’m not sure what the point in trying to wake people up is anymore. I’m not saying I’m quitting, but let’s face the facts as they are:

THE UNINFORMED IDIOTS IN THIS COUNTRY VASTLY OUTNUMBER THOSE OF US WITH A CLUE, AND IT’S ONLY GETTING WORSE!

MUCH WORSE!

I cannot remember the last time I heard ANYONE say they thought the country was headed in the right direction, or say they think Obama is doing even so much as an ‘ok’ job. I’m not talking about Gallop polls, or Quinnipiac polls, I am talking about every day Americans, MANY of whom I know were HUGE Obama supporters because their Prius still sports the Obama/Biden bumper sticker.

WHAT I FIND SICKENING ALMOST BEYOND COMPREHENSION IS HOW EVERYONE THINK’S OBAMA’S ILLEGAL ACTIONS AND THE COUNTRY’S DIRE PROBLEMS ARE ALL SOMEONE ELSE’S PROBLEM TO WORRY ABOUT… 

Treason

A PULSE, AND IQ OVER 6 ARE ALL THAT ARE REQUIRED TODAY…

CLEARLY THE SECOND IS AN ISSUE WITH MANY PEOPLE!!!!!!

FIRST IT WAS OBAMACARE… THEN NET NEUTRALITY…

THEN IRAN… 

NOW IT’S THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP!!!

Someone help me understand how many branches a person has to hit while falling out of the idiot tree to get SO stupid today that as a nation we are the most gullible group of fools in the GALAXY?!?!? HINT: Look at the first three in the list above. How did they work out? PLEASE don’t tell me you can’t figure out the pattern there that begins with the first three, and concludes with the fourth one…. PLEASE! 

CONSIDER THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP THE HIROSHIMA TO OUR ECONOMY. 

CAN I BE ANY MORE CLEAR?

DO LIBERALS WITH THEIR P.C. TEXT BOOKS TODAY EVEN KNOW WHAT I MEAN?!

Republicans are about to make a huge mistake.  They are moving to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership fast track legislation favored by Obama.  Obama must be laughing his ass off at how easy it is to fool the morons in the Senate.  You see, there is a clause in the agreement with  AustraliaBrunei, Canada,Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam that allows those countries to send workers into this country at will, much like the agreement that’s causing so much havoc in the EU countries.  Basically it would open our borders up to unlimited immigration.

To make matters worse, and something the average citizen may not realize is that the treaty actually trumps US laws.  That means congress could not pass legislation stopping the inflow of these immigrants into this country even if both houses pass it unanimously and the president at the time signs it.  This would assure us that Obama’s open borders would continue to live on for possibly decades, with no way to halt it.  You really need to contact both of your Senators and find out how they plan to vote and if they are supporting the measure, you need to tell them to vote no.

It would be a disaster to pass this fast track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  Once passed, Obama can sign the treaty without oversight from the Senate and cannot be reversed at a later date.  It will provide millions of citizens of these member countries to enter the United States legally, where they can freely steal jobs of Americans because they are willing to work for much less money.  They would also give the companies that hire them from 3,000 to 5,000 dollars because they would not be eligible for Obamacare. Companies would save what it would cost them should they not provide medical coverage and furthermore, they would not count towards the magic number of 50 employees, the threshold for having to pay the Obamacare penalty.

DOES ANYONE OUT THERE NEED THAT TRANSLATED?

The following is a combination of an article written by Michael Snyder of the Economic Collapse Blog, with the sarcastic comments added by me:

If enough people truly believe that things will get better, will that actually cause them to get better?  There is certainly something to be said for being positive and thinking that anything is possible.  And as Americans, optimism seems to come naturally for us.  

HOWEVER, NO AMOUNT OF POSITIVE THINKING IS EVER GOING TO TURN THE SUN INTO A BLOCK OF WOOD OR TURN THE MOON INTO A BLOCK OF CHEESE! 

Any good counselor will tell you that one of the first steps toward recovery is to stop being delusional and to come to grips with how bad things really are.  When we deny reality and engage in irrational wishful thinking, we are engaging in something called “HOPIUM”.  This is a difficult term to define, but the favorite definition of hopium that I have come across so far goes like this

“THE IRRATIONAL BELIEF THAT, DESPITE ALL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, THINGS WILL TURN OUT OF THE BEST.”

IN MY POST TITLED CONSPIRACY THEORIST ARRESTED,  I TALKED ABOUT COGNITIVE DISSONANCE!

“Because of the psychological principal, COGNITIVE DISSONANCE, no amount of direct or circumstantial proof would convince some people that the highest political position in the country has been compromised by a communist plot spanning several decades.” 

“The term cognitive dissonance refers to a person who has received information so shocking, so upsetting, that they CANNOT ADEQUATELY PROCESS that information and then instead denies the validity of the proof that anyone else can see. If you are one of the cognitive dissonance types, please allow me to ask you a few questions.”

EARTH TO AMERICANS: DO YOU READ ME?

PEOPLE SURE DON’T READ THE EVIDENCE IN THE POSTS BELOW!

Michael Snyder goes on: In hundreds of articles, I have documented how the U.S. economy is mired in a long-term decline which is about to get a lot worse.  But most Americans see things very differently.  In fact, according to a brand new CNN/ORC poll, 52 percent of Americans describe the U.S. economy as “very” or “somewhat good”, and more than two-thirds of all Americans believe that the U.S. economy will be in “good shape” a year from right now.  But if you asked most of those people why they are so optimistic, they would probably mumble something about “Obama” or about how “we’re Americans and we always bounce back” or some other such gibberish.  Well, it’s wonderful that so many people are feeling good and looking forward to the future, but are those beliefs rational?

REALLY? REALLY?

REMEMBER WHO WE’RE DEALING WITH HERE!

We witnessed a perfect example of this “hopium” on Wednesday.  Sales at McDonald’s restaurants have been in decline for quite a while, and the numbers for the first quarter of 2015 were just abysmal

The ubiquitous burger-and-fries chain said US sales, the largest share of global income, fell 2.6 percent from a year ago for comparable outlets.

Sales in the Asia-Pacific and Middle East region dropped 8.3 percent, helping bring overall global sales down 2.3 percent, “reflecting negative guest traffic in all segments,” the company said.

Total revenue sank 11 percent to $5.96 billion in the quarter to March 31, and net income plunged 32.6 percent to $812 million, or 84 cents a share (-31 percent).

So you would think that the stock price would have tanked on Wednesday, right?

Wrong.

Thanks to news that a “turnaround plan” would be announced on May 4th, McDonald’s stock actually skyrocketed

McDonald’s closed up 3.13 percent after spiking more than 4.5 percent in early trade as investors cheered a turnaround plan expected on May 4. However, the fast food chain’s earnings missed on both the top and bottom lines.

This is pure hopium.  Why don’t McDonald’s executives just tell us what the plan is now?  But instead, the mystery of a “secret turnaround plan” gives people just enough hope to keep the stock from tumbling – at least for the moment.

And of course there are all sorts of other stocks that are being massively inflated by hopium right now.
