“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

    Obama, Holder Sledgehammer the First Amendment
    By William Tate

    In a move that could have chilling First Amendment consequences, the Obama regime this week showed that it's willing to use the full weight and power of the Justice Department to pummel any media outlet that doesn't toe the party line.
    Within days of the Gallup Organization issuing, essentially, a veiled warning to the Obama gang about tinkering with unemployment numbers, Obama's DOJ jumped, jackboots first, into a multi-million dollar legal action against Gallup, in a case initiated by a former Obama operative.
    Others have noted that the DOJ action occurred after Gallup had Mitt Romney ahead of Obama in its polling for a few days. But as we've pointed out, it's not Gallup's horse race numbers that have the Chicago gang concerned. This far out from the election, Likely Voter numbers are about as convincing as David Axelrod's combover. What Axelrod and his co-conspirators are really worried about are Gallup's jobless numbers.

  3. Looks like a good image of the Obama Economy, come to think of it.

    1. Or, Solyndra crashing to earth, or......

      Played in reverse, it might represent the rising price of gas in the last three and half years......or....

      Played forward again, it might represent the declining house hold net worth in the country.....

  4. Played in reverse, it might represent the rising price of gas in the last three and half years......or....the rising number of bankrupt cities in California, Socialist Rufie's Dream Paradise.

    Even if all of the alternative energy projects work out as well, or better than Rufanol expects, the effect will be negligible compared to the deficits, debt, and unbelievable retired public employee benefit obligations.

  5. Rufanol - o jeez, now I'll never get that out of my mind. And be tempted to use it once in a while.

  6. Good play both on ethanol and the state of mind of Druggies on Rufies.

  7. oops, it's Roofies, the date rape drug.

    Ruf takes em then exposes himself to socialist propaganda.

    Voluntary mind rape.

  9. 82-Yr-Old Activist Breaches “Stringent Security” At U.S. Nuclear Weapons La

    In an inconceivable breach, an 82-year-old nun along with two other seniors somehow managed to evade what the U.S. government calls the “most stringent security in the world” to break into a nuclear weapons laboratory often referred to as the “Fort Knox of Uranium.”

    And this nun doesn't even fly.

    from Corruption Chronicles

    Huge embarrassment to President Obama which we will never hear about again.

    Who cares anyway?

  10. Poo-powered bike just the thing for Rufanol -


    What a gas!
