RANT: Multiple DUIs

Instead of focusing on the average joe who has a beer with dinner, this is the problem! 4 DUIs. Why is he out of jail?

Of course, then the problem would be solved and no need for “checkpoints” as revenue raising.

CHIEF RAYMOND J. HAYDUCKAAdvisory: Cops catch drunk driver after near collision and chase

Hi fjohn reinke,

A drunk driver, who had been convicted four times previously for driving while under the influence, was arrested Saturday morning after nearly striking a police car and leading officers on a chase. The incident began at 1:30am as Sergeant Frank Lombardo was driving east on Route 522. William Campbell age 52 of Franklin Park was operating his 1994 Ford pickup truck south on North Umberland Way. He entered the intersection of Route 522 without stopping and nearly ran into Sergeant Lombardo’s marked patrol car. The sergeant had to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision.

The sergeant then activated his lights and siren attempting to stop the vehicle. The pickup truck accelerated and struck two curbs as it winded through the South Ridge Townhomes development. Campbell then pulled onto New Road and headed east. He turned off of New Road into a commerical development accelerating behind some buildings. Sergeant Lombardo pursued him behind the buildings where Campbell made a U-turn and came back at the officer. Sergeant Lombardo was able to get his vehicle out of the way as Campbell pulled pass. Campbell then pulled up to the rear of one of the commercial buildings and parked his vehicle. He stumbled out of the driver’s seat without explanation. Sergeant Lombardo was able to arrest Campbell without further incident.

Campbell, who in addition to four driving while under the influence convictions has ten license suspensions, was charged with driving while under the influence and eluding. He was transported to police headquarters and processed. His bail was set at $25,000. He was lodged in the Middlesex County Correction Center in default of bail.

FUN: Another bad joke

FROM HR SUE:

Sven and Ole

Two Minnesota engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.

A woman walks by asks what they were doing.

“Ve’re supposed to find da height of dis flagpole, ” said Sven, “but
ve don’t haff a ladder.”

The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple bolts, and
laid the pole down on the ground.

Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement,
announced, “Twenty one feet, six inches,” and walked away.

Ole shook his head and laughed. “Ain’t dat just like a voman! Ve ask
fer da height and she gives us da length!”

Guess it could have been worse. The “woman” could have been blond. LOL!

POLITICAL: Now that we have a pot head as Prez …

Obama and His Pot-Smoking ‘Choom Gang’

*** begin quote ***

Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama never tried to say he didn’t inhale.

In his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

*** end quote ***

Now that we have a pot head as Prez …

… as a little L libertarian, I’ve always thought that our “drug policy”, “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, was a best “misguided”, at worst “corrupt”. We have too many examples, anecdotal evidence, of pot not being as “bad” as booze, of high achievers who “inhaled” …

Don’t you think we could have a national dialogue about “drugs”, “drug policy”, and factual evidence?

We have mj prohibition because of hemp’s competition with the politically connected paper industry.

We have mj prohibition because of Hollywood’s “reefer madness” propaganda.

We have mj prohibition because of its association with the black community.

We have arguably ¼ of the federal prison population due to mj.

We have sick people, who need it and have no alternative for them. Not an effective alternative. Never mind a cheap alternative.

Ignore that not everyone who has a medical mj RX needs it. There are folks who legitimately need it (i.e., AIDS, chemotherapy patients, glaucoma).

Since the Chinese dynasty, there has been a residual addiction rate. Regardless if addicts were sentenced to death in China. Dealers were imprisoned for long stretches in Southeast Asia. No “public policy” makes a dent in the problem.

If the Gooferment can’t keep “drugs” out of its prisons, then perhaps we need a better strategy?

Walmart and Walgreens seem to be able to restrict access to stuff from minors.

So, why can’t we shift from the “punishment” meme that is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient to a “treatment” meme. 

How much worse could we do?

SERVICE: FACEBOOK has risks; parents should engage a “Glenda”

I found something disturbing aimed at one of my young Facebook “friends”.

(You know they “friend” me when they think it’s “kool” to have some “friends” and want to build up their count. Then forget that the fat old white guy injineer “stalks” them forever. Like Glenda the Good Witch, watching over them and their online presence.)

So, I immediately alerted on it to the “command authority” (i.e., her parents) via the approved channels (i.e., her aunt).

Action was taken.

This post suggests that parents need to have a view into their children’s onine activities.

Of course, I offer my “glenda service” at my usual discount. (LOL!) But, you’ll have to be “kool” about how you get a Glenda on to their friend’s list.

“Wonder what that crazy old koot is up to this week end? You see him on Facebook don’t you, dearest child of mine?” May work?

Or, find a trusted friend or relative that the child has already been “friend-ed” during their naïve days, and assign them Glenda duty.

Forewarned is forearmed. Or in this case, four eyeballed. (Yeah, I know it falls flat. But you get the idea!)

Breaching the Wall

*** begin quote ***

I’m starting to entertain the thought that a litmus test for bad guys versus good guys is that the former want to limit religion by arbitrary state redefinition, the latter to limit government to the terms of the Constitution.

I’ve been concerned with religious freedom pretty keenly since well before I set foot in law school, and I know that this issue is one where, whatever his other defects, Romney stands in stark contrast to Obama and his administration. “We’re all Catholics now.”

I think that he’s hit the nail on the head.

RANT: “Audit the Fed” has some life

*** begin quote ***

Dear Ferdinand,

This is it!

Earlier today, I received word that Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) is now scheduled for a vote this July in the U.S. House of Representatives!

This historic moment is only possible thanks to your relentless pressure. Now we must turn up the heat to secure victory – first in the House and then in Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate.

That’s why I hope you’ll read the note below from Senator Rand Paul and take immediate action.

In Liberty,

Matt Hawes
Vice President
Campaign for Liberty

*** end quote ***

If one has to find the one single thing, that has impoverished us as a nation, while allowing the Gooferment to grow out of control and dramatically preventing us from controlling that “sprawl”, then one only has to look at the 1913 creation of the Fed.

Killing it wouldn’t solve our problems. 

But it would go along way to stop the hole we’re in from being dug to even grater depths.

AND, it would stop “inflation”. The automatic debasement of our unit of account.

The Dead Old White Guys must be rolling over to see us make this basic mistake.

Does Your Rep Really Believe the Troops Are Fighting for Freedom?
Posted by James Wilson

*** begin quote ***

Politicians send troops abroad to die. Then they bestow fake honor on them at home. It’s called Memorial Day.

Chances are EVERY member of Congress will be back in their district, pontificating and posing as a patriot, who values the sacrifice of the fallen.

*** end quote ***

Maybe I’m a curmudgeon. Maybe I’m a cynic. Maybe I’m just a disagreeable SOB.

But I’m a vet.

And, I feel that I, and all other vets, were screwed by the political governing class.

The icon is Robert McNamara.

He knew the truth about “Viet Nam, Republic of”, but played along with the “gag”.

He confessed later on.

Too late for 55k boys who made the ultimate sacrifice because they weren’t in on the “gag”.

Ditto for WW1; Wilson’s war. Ditto for WW2; FDR’s war. Ditto for Korea; Truman’s war.

Sorry, but “We, The Sheeple” have put a stop to politician’s standing on the graves of a lot of good men and women to make their speeches.

Time to call them to account.

When the “enemy” arrives at the water’s edge, then, and only then, should we be asking the youth to defend their land.

Argh!

Un-patriotic?

Not in the least. 

Dissent is by definition patriotic.

Like Ron Paul says: “… first thing smoking coming in this direction …”!

Sorry, but I think the best way to honor Decoration Day is stop creating more graves to “decorate”.

And, the fact, that a charity has to pander on TV for funds to take care of the “wounded warriors”, is further national disgrace.

Tell me about how that’s fixed and the girls and boys aren’t wasting their blood, then you can celebrate “Memorial Day”.

Argh! To the n-th power.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Hollywood bribes the District of Corruption

10 Things Hollywood Won’t Tell You
Now playing: sequels, 3-D reruns and long ads.
By CHARLES PASSY

*** begin quote ***

6. “We scratch Washington’s back…”

Yep, even Hollywood has a lobbying arm: the Motion Picture Association of America, which spent more than $2 million wooing elected officials last year. And its positions aren’t always popular with either the public or politicians. Recently, the association, under the stewardship of former U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd, pushed for antipiracy legislation designed to keep films from being easily shared and copied online. But the bills were seen as restricting the overall use of the Internet and failed to garner support. After Congress put the legislation on hold, Dodd warned that “those who count on ‘Hollywood’ for support need to understand that this industry is watching very carefully who’s going to stand up for them when their job is at stake.” That led some critics to charge that the MPAA was bullying legislators and prompted an online petition asking the White House to “investigate this blatant bribery.” The Obama administration declined to comment on the petition.

INTERESTING: How does one give a youngster advice?

Dear Miss X:

May I share something that I wish some one had told me when I was your age?

You’ve recently experienced a disappointment. Crushing.

I’ve been rejected in my life.

Many times. Sometimes important; sometimes trivial. Sometimes I cared a lot; sometimes not at all.

In retrospect, I wish I’d known to ask the person rejecting, “Why?”

Robert Burns’ quote is “O would some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as others see us.”

The JoHari window http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johari_window tells us that there is a whole “half” that we can see and that can be reduced in half by fining out what other people see.

I suggest that you want to meet the rejector and ask why?

Yup. Face 2 Face.

Ask him why? Why, you weren’t picked? In what dimensions, did you fall short of your peers? What could you have done or could not have done? What preparations could you have done?

See, now you just suspect, but you really really don’t know.

There’s one You Tube Taylor Swift video where as a young girl, she actually thanks a radio host critic for negative feedback. That’s is an astounding revelation that I never had when I was young. To interrogate a critic for feedback and thinking the person for it is a skill far beyond anyone’s years. I wish I’d had it; I wish you’d develop it.

So that’s my “pearl”. Hope I explained it well enough. It’s up to you to “steal” the idea.

I wish I had it when I was you’re age.

RANT: End Gooferment Skrules

http://ncc-1776.org/tle2012/tle670-20120513-02.html

To Hell With Public Schools
by L. Neil Smith

Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

*** begin quote ***

It is time to end the public schools.

I just heard about a little boy—a six-year-old in First Grade—who is being treated like a sex criminal by the drooling half-wits who run the Aurora (Colorado) school system because he quoted an M&Ms commercial to a little girl his own age. Something about “I’m sexy and I know it”, a concept of which the poor kid can’t possibly have any understanding.

Everybody reading this knows that this is just the latest in an endless series—”a long train of abuses and usurpations” if I ever saw one—of Nazi-like idiocies occurring all over the country, and in Canada, as well. The last one that pissed off every intelligent individual on the continent was when a little girl drew a picture of a gun of some kind, and her father got strip-searched and their home invaded by uniformed goons with the intelligence of vicious man-eating eggplants.

*** end quote ***

If I had one quibble with L. Neil Smith, it is that he confuses “public schools” with “Gooferment Skrules” aka “Big Government Propaganda Reeducation Camps”. Or as some wag said: “Prison’s Minor League Training Program”.

I vaguely remember back in the days of my yute, there were “public schools” that were not run by the Government. Schools of Ethical Culture. The Lutherans had schools that weren’t “parochial”, but were open to anyone. I only vaguely remember those. They were gone before I was far along in school. There were “private” schools that were “public”. They had some number of slots paid for by benefactors to be given to worthy families; as I reflect you had to be smart and your family broke. 

“Free” Gooferment Skrules quickly wiped them all out. Who can compete with a “free good”? Like trying to market air or dirt.

Not a doubt in my mind that the current “stupidity” of Ameirkan Yute is totally due to Gooferment Skrules. Ending them would one of the single best things that could happen.

The only thing I’d rank higher would be: End the Fed; End the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”; and End the Income Tax. 

But ending Gooferment Skrules would certainly be a good start and the increase in IQ would probably lead to nuking these other things!

RANT: Gooferment protection is nonexistent; circular reasoning

EXCERPT FROM AN EMAIL ABOUT Gooferment!

But, see there is the “key fact”, the Gooferment ENABLES that bad product to make to the market in the first place. Then you think the Gooferment should “protect” us from it. It’s ineffective and inefficient. If makers were exposed to the FULL BRUNT of their mistakes, then they would be infinitely more careful.

The marketplace exacts a SWIFT and TERRIBLE justice on the “offenders”. Think Corvair. Think Thallidomide. Think Enron. Think … any good disaster. Yeah, the Gooferment got involved long after the train left the station. I remember TIME magazine breakign the Thallidomide story and had women stopping that drug LONG before the actual link was formally recognized in Europe. Which PRECEEDED the FDA by a while.

Yes, my little L libertarian “paradise” my be only in my dreams now. But it’s coming. Because humans NEED to be free. And, you can only surpress it for so long before it erupts. My exemplar is “drugs in prisons”. Humans are irrepressible; you can only kill them.

Good point about the the seat belts. But it was one passionate committed man who dragged Gooferment along kicking a screaming. Even some good things result from a big bad thing.

# – # – # – # – #   

INTERESTING: Seatbelts

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stapp

Dear Jasper John

I learned something new thanks to my research into seat belts.

The Air Force was very instrumental in the passing of laws making seat belts mandatory
thanks in no mall measure to the work of Col. John Stapp
Car safety

During his work at Holloman Air Force Base Stapp became interested in the implications of his work for car safety. At the time, cars were generally not fitted with seatbelts but Stapp had shown that a properly restrained human could survive far greater impacts than an unrestrained one. Many traffic accident deaths were therefore avoidable but for the lack of seatbelts. Stapp became a strong advocate and publicist for this cause, frequently steering interviews onto the subject, organizing conferences, and staging demonstrations (including the first known use of automobile crash test dummies). At one point the military objected to funding work they believed was outside their purview, but they were persuaded when Stapp gave them statistics showing that more Air Force pilots were killed in traffic accidents than in plane crashes. The culmination of his efforts came in 1966 when Stapp witnessed Lyndon B. Johnson sign the law making manufacture of cars with seatbelts (lapbelts at that time) compulsory.[1]

John Paul Stapp, M.D., Ph.D., Colonel, USAF (Ret.) (11 July 1910–13 November 1999) was a career U.S. Air Force officer, USAF flight surgeon and pioneer in studying the effects of acceleration and deceleration forces on humans. He was a colleague and contemporary of Chuck Yeager, and became known as “the fastest man on earth”.

Stebbins, Donald M. (MC1961)

Couldn’t use this in the Alumni news, but it was to good to loose.

I’d credit this “success” to the man; not the Gooferment. Even some good comes out of a “bad thing” (i.e., Gooferment).

I first heard about seat belts when my maternal Grandfather Eddie and my Dad put them in all the cars. Front and back. Long before I even knew what they were. Their use was condition of being allowed to use the car. It was so rare for my Grandfather to insist on ANYTHING, it made a big impression in my mind. This was back in the early 60’s.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Drones over Amerika

WMAL in DC is going nuts with drones and drone sightings.

They have DOD documents that say that USAF is authorized to use them in a myriad of cases. 

So has the Big Brother “Surveillance State” become a fait acompli?

Similar to one’s electronic privacy that disappeared with the introduction of the Social Security Number.

You remember that gag “Not For Identification Purposes”?

I just had to give it to the gas, electric, and cable companies to start service at my new “crash pad”.

Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” wake up. 

The “third revolutionary war” is over. YOU lost.

You may know return to the modern day bread and circuses where everyone depends on a Gooferment check (and YES, that INCLUDES Social Security!) and everyone watches “reality TV” for their “life”.

Argh! Squared.

By way of a small revolt, I only have one TV in my new condo. And, that’s just a concession to guests.

Argh! Cubed.

MEME: Guilt blocks your smarts

How to Be Less Stupid
Posted by James Altucher

*** begin quote ***

I’m really stupid. I can tell you in advance. I think at heart, if I work at it, I can be smart. But at the moment I’m largely an idiot. I feel I have the right knowledge but I let a lot of stuff get in the way. You know: “stuff”. Worries, guilt, paranoia, grudges, resentment. Like, for instance: I resent the people who resent me. I think they resent me for no reason. So now I resent them. What a circle-jerk!

I used to think when I added stuff to my brain I’d get smarter. But this is not true. For instance, if I look up when Charlemagne was born I’d just add a fact to my head which I will forget tomorrow. This won’t make me smarter. Subtraction, and not Addition, is what makes the window to the brain more clear, wipes away the smudges, opens the drapes.

*** and ***

6)      Guilt. A good friend of mine wrote me recently. I should say, wrote me six weeks ago. Every day when I wake up I tell myself: don’t return emails until you read, then write. But then sometimes I have other things to do. Meetings. Or BS stuff. Or eating. I say, “ok, I will return that email later.” And then when later comes I feel bad that I haven’t returned his email earlier. Then at 3am I turn over and say to Claudia, “I didn’t return that email”. She says “Urgh…ushghsh…emmmm” which was not the answer I was looking for. Then I don’t sleep as much. Then I feel guilty. That takes away about 10% of my intelligence right there.

*** end quote ***

Ahh, yes, I feel guilt.

Everyone says I have nothing to be guilty about.

That still doesn’t change how I feel.

Argh!

Nine Things Successful People Do Differently

8:58 AM Friday February 25, 2011
by Heidi Grant Halvorson 

*** begin quote ***

Why have you been so successful in reaching some of your goals, but not others? If you aren’t sure, you are far from alone in your confusion. It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle. In fact, decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do.

1. Get specific. When you set yourself a goal, try to be as specific as possible. “Lose 5 pounds” is a better goal than “lose some weight,” because it gives you a clear idea of what success looks like. Knowing exactly what you want to achieve keeps you motivated until you get there. Also, think about the specific actions that need to be taken to reach your goal. Just promising you’ll “eat less” or “sleep more” is too vague — be clear and precise. “I’ll be in bed by 10pm on weeknights” leaves no room for doubt about what you need to do, and whether or not you’ve actually done it.

*** end quote ***

Seems simple enough. Be specific. And as specific as possible. I read that color is important. So I want ANOTHER blue FIT. This one that drives itself back and forth between NJ and VA. ROFL!

The Obstacle in our Path

In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the kirig’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the king for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way. Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the king indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The peasant learned what many of us never understand. Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: I don’t understand how the “dead” vote?

It seems like every time I fart, some one in the Gooferment is noting it.

For example, my wife wasn’t even dead one day and the Social Security Admin had automagically reached into her bank account and pulled back their last social security check. (Not even pro-rated for the 26/28 days of the month that she lived.) The speed amazed everyone in the family.

So why can’t the voting rolls be purged just as quickly?

The corrupt power structure likes the mess just fine.

It’s for the same reason you have to show id to get on an airline, but not to vote.

Mad yet?

If not, joint he Tea Party. If not, go back to sleep because you’re “We, The Sheeple” and part of the problem.

See the problem is not the politicians and bureaucrats robbing us blind. We know them. We can see them! Like Madame DeFarge, we’ve marked them. 

It’s “We, The Sheeple”. They are the problem. Sleepwalking through life. Oblivious to their patriotic duty to the Republic.

Like that supposed quote … “a Republic, if you can keep it.”

Argh!

Business Viking Raid: Minn. Senate Approves Plan to Subsidize New Football Stadium With Half a Billion Tax Dollars
Posted on May 10, 2012 at 8:30pm by Becket Adams Becket Adams

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP/The Blaze) — The Minnesota Vikings moved to within a governor’s signature of getting a new $975 million stadium on Thursday after the state Senate approved a plan that relies on $498 million taxpayers dollars.

Disgraceful!

MEME: Often stats can show where our memes and paradigms are wrong

A MESSAGE SNIPPET FROM A EMIL EXCHANGE WITH LUDDITE:

*** begin quote ***

0216 is what time I wrote it. (Meaning the message,)

No, I just haven’t slept through the night in many years. The new doc is not happy with that and the sweats and other “symptoms”. So I am keeping a log for him.

I attribute the problems sleeping to the last six years of “training”. You might remember that EVY would say I would sleep through an atomic attack. As she got sicker, I “taught”my self to be a light sleeper and wake up often.

Like putting the cellphone on vibrate and have it alarm every thirty minutes. Slept with it rubber banded to my hand. That was so I could check her for low sugar during the night.

Rofl! How dumb was that?

Now I can’t sleep without a light on. When she would be in hospital (working with Brit and for a Brit i the past has rubbed off a little. Bloody hell!)

Any way, about the light on, when she was in the hospital, I began to sleep with the light on to remind me that she wasn’t there. This after a couple off times in a panic when she was NOT there and didn’t answer when I called her. Followed by a furious race around the house to “find” her. Quite funny really. Why would someone look in a cupboard? Or, another time, in my skivvies, checking the cars. Lucky I didn’t get arrested as a pervert. Anyway, you KNOW how crazed I was in those days. So, I started that habit and continue it to this days.

Like every room has to have a night light after the time she tripped over her blanket going to the bathroom.

Looks like Christmas lights around the house. Good thing they have sensors.

I have several techniques to get back to sleep as outlined in various self help books.

One is called “clearing”. The theory is that in trying to go back to sleep, you clear by writing any thinking that’s on your mind at that time. Some of my short stories are the result of that. If you’re “trying” to sleep, you might be afraid you’ll forget and the Universe keeps you awake so you don’t

And you’ve read my book and my blog so you know more about my paradigms and memes than I do about yours. Lol! Probably more than you want to know about a very very strange fellow!!!

[Privacy Invoked]

Most times when I’m upset about something if I actually gather data, I find my perception (paradigm) is flawed. In size, amount, impact, or other measures.

Statistic is an interesting discipline because usual human paradigms and memes are just plain wrong!

PS, look for this as a blog post!

INTERESTING: “Ineptocracy” sparks thinking about “National Negative Feedback Loop”

FROM LUDITE:

Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

# – # – #  

Hmm, is getting smarter or finding new sources of wisdom on the inet to parrot? 

This sparks me to try an alternative definition of “negative feedback loop”. Ingineers use these to “damp” down oscillations and prevent “runaways” aka “positive feedback loop”.

Here goes:

“National negative feedback loop for productivity and wealth creation: A situation where the balance of producers and consumers tips to consumption. The political class gains advantage by promising more consumption for consumes by robbing the wealth of the producers. Producers, being the more intelligent and productive members of the “hive” recognize that they are getting <synonym for the past tense of the procreation act> and “damp” their productivity to a level sufficient for their own needs. This deprives society of the capital necessary to improve the capital stock of society as a whole. Think the “king” orders the “seed corn” be made into bread for distribution at the circuses. Clearly a downward spiral in entropy. This can only be broken by a catastrophe. A national revolution that wipes out the political class and replaces it with more enlightened “rulers” (e.g., French Revolution). A natural disaster such as Rome burns. Human evolution develops a new releases of “homo sapiens” that is hardier than the current release and “pushes out” the old version of humans (i.e., Rome is sacked by the Barbarians). “We, The Sheeple” rise up in a tax revolt (i.e., the Tea Party).”

Hmmmmmmm?
