Mandeville, LA – Mike Church’s daily Pile of Prep, chock full of the Information Dissemenation 101st Airborne & how they play into Leviathan’s hands + Government Shutdown Factoids you don’t get in other media including what a “conservative foreign policy” might look like with Mike’s historical viewpoint to help make sense of it all plus other [r]epublican stories used to perform the Mike Church Show on Sirius/XM Patriot channel 125. ” Rather, it’s a revolt against the long term pattern I’ve just described: Against what these conservatives, and many on the right, see as forty years of failure, in which first Reagan and then Gingrich and now the Tea Party wave have all failed to deliver on the promise of an actual right-wing answer to the big left-wing victories of the 1930s and 1960s .” – Ross Douthat on the plight of rear guard conservatives
Ross Douthat has partially described the scenario that “conservatives” have operated under since Jefferson: building bunkers/ramparts to slow down the charge of the State. But this is not a political problem as I see it. It’s a cultural problem. One could write a scenario under which society “progresses” yet does not jettison the transcendent or the tradition in the process; what we have is progress AWAY from both and THAT is what drives the debates
Government Shutdown factoid #9 – Government summits without beer do not result in solved budget impasses but they are great finger wagging exercises for Boehner, Obama & Reid
Government Shutdown Factoid # 23 – Ron Paul is always right when he says the entire operation is a philosophical fraud and EVERYONE is to blame for the shutdown
Government Shutdown Factoid # 77 – No one knows just how many spies the NSA has working for it and thus no one knows how many spooks have been furloughed and are spying from home today (see Homeland, Season 1, episodes 1-4)
Government Shutdown Factoid #2 – The word “intelligence” and the word “government” don’t go together very often unless there is a joke being told. Exhibit A: Why would it be more likely for our patriotic, dedicated spies to bolt to “the terrorists” because they didn’t get paid for 2 days!? That’s what NSA’s James Clapper says is happening!
For all those wistfully longing for “THE ANSWER” to our quandary, look no further. the truth is, as I have tried to preach, the State has commercialized the work of Christianity, nearly destroying it, while simultaneously subsidizing the rise of an “entertainment class” that contributes to the diminution of the former. This is the Information Dissemination 101st Airborne story read on today’s show
Spies like us. The NSA now admits it DID track our cellphones as the collective confession continues we might learn where Jimmy Hoffa is OR just how many licks it DOES take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop!
