Dark Thoughts on a Sunny Day
The news gets stranger every day. The magic-bean-buyers of the USA have turned over the reins of power to a dictator in waiting . As Oliver Hardy said to Stan Laurel:
"You’ve really done it this time!"
Here is the news of the day followed by upcoming scenarios that even 6 months ago would have been considered paranoid delusions but are now well within the realm of possibility:
The drumbeat continues that America is near collapse and that only an unprecedented campaign of government intervention in the free markets can save the country.
Highlights so far:
* Stock Market down 25% since the inauguration of President Barack bin Laden
* Government bails out( nationalizes ) banks, insurance companies and car manufacturers
* Stimulus package passes Congress with thousands of special interest funding projects
* Congress passes ex post facto law confiscating legally paid salary bonuses
* Treasury “buys” 1 trillion plus of national debt with non-existing funds
* Barack appears on the Jay Leno show, insults headslappers.

The Not Too Distant Future
President Barack bin Laden announces the creation of his “Civilian Security Force” as promised during the 2008 campaign due to unprecedented risks to domestic order.
Congress passes and Barack signs a new “equal time” law directed at conservative “new media”. This will include some kind of Internet censorship as well as talk radio regulation.
Executive orders are issued that circumvent The Bill of Rights, specifically the First, Second Fourth , Fifth and Seventh amendments. The selective enforcement of these changes will be conducted by the newly created Civilian Security Force under the supervision of a new cabinet level appointee. The rationale for this initiative is that is it being undertaken “for the children.”
The preceding laws and directives are ruled unconstitutional by the sitting Supreme Court. The rulings are ignored by President Barack bin Laden. This represents the de facto dissolution of the Judiciary branch of government.
Wage control laws are enacted by Congress limiting compensation to non-government employees to the average national income of $45,000.
Welfare payments are increased to the average national income. Eligibility for welfare is expanded to include “all persons within the territorial limits of the United States regardless of immigration status”. President Barack bin Laden, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid issue a joint statement that this new wage and welfare regulations are being implemented “for the children”.

Gulf Oil Spill continues .
The Administration, along with cooperating mainstream media outlets declare
that the crisis has been solved, even as Detroit, Chicago, New York, D.C. and Los Angeles
suffer riots, looting and a spike in property crime, assaults and murder.
The National Guard is federalized and assigned to restore order. They fail. Elements of the Armed Forces that have been rotated back to the U.S. from the Middle East are deployed in urban areas to restore order. (This may actually work).
Congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lead a vote to temporarily appoint President Barack bin Laden as Caliph Maximus due to his unprecedented support in the news polls. Rationale for the move is characterized as good “for the children”.
