Tin foil hat time..?

Just about a year ago I was chatting on IM with a friend, and as might be expected we were discussing the election. The Democrat race was anything but sewn up at that point. Both of us being conservatives with a markedly Libertarian bent were anything but happy with the choices available in the race for the Presidency.

How though, could the country be turned on it’s head? He believed that the nation would continue on without much, if any serious change irrespective of who ended up in the oval office. My position was different, as regular readers might expect. I said that our entire way of life could be destroyed. How so? By destroying the economy, or even by making it appear to be the situation. Who would be able to pull that off. The usual suspects of course. George Soros, Chuck Schumer, and so on. My friend suggested that I needed to adjust my tin foil hat for better reception. We both had a good laugh and went on to other things of interest.

Today my RSS feeder lit up with something that caught my attention. Read about it at papundits.

    Well, bless you Merry. I just finally learned to write a lil’ better! 😀

    Yes Swami, we did at that! ( I have been calling Fred Swami for some time now.)

    Tony PaPundits is in fact one of my favorite blogs. The problem is that I also often write about the very same subjects and I don’t want it to appear that either blog is engaging in topic theft!

    Patrick – touch base, mlongsworth-at-kc.rr.com or mlongsworth -at- blockandco.com – long time no hear! Merry


  6. Merry Says:

    Patrick – couldn’t tell if my reply went thru. Touch base using first initial last name @kc.rr.com or first initial last name @blockandco.com. Very, very long time no hear! Merry

    Yes it did Merry, and yes, it has been a very long time. Will do hon! 😀

    The lasting influence of Jimmy Carter might be a good precedent to see whether Obama is going to change the country permanently. He wasn’t reelected, of course, but he’s very popular with young leftists. He’s like Macgyver (sp?) to them.

    McGovern probably. That was in the time of my youth Tony. People were just all adoration. I couldn’t understand it actually myself. But by that time the seeds of Libertarianism were well rooted in me. I was not at all a happy camper. They have taken root, and while I am admittedly a very small minority?

    I have the pride of knowing that I have stood by, and defended the ideology of Liberty.

    And, as my old friend Merry would say? I was no angel! Far from it…
