I received this as a chain letter email – Here’s a copy of the recent Pravda article about the disappearance of American capitalism. This is a Russian newspaper writing about what seems obvious to most of the world; yet, this country seems to be blindsided to it. The irony of this article appearing in the English edition of Pravda (Russian State Newspaper) defies description. – Bob Akins

Why so socialist?

Why so socialist?

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America .

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America ‘s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK ‘s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.
The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

I just saw the Obama Celebrity video that will mark an “unprecedented address to all public school students” on September 8.”  The text from the presumptions video is included below – unfortunately the actors and actresses who made these pledges are not indicated – I’m VERY proud to say that I don’t recognize many of them, and the ones I do recognize I’d struggle to remember their names.  Actually, I encourage everyone to NOT CARE and DON’T figure out who they are.  Politics are corrupt enough – the last thing we need to do is give them the power of the ‘popularity contest’ that modern entertainment (celebrity) is.  The best thing we can do is never learn another celebrity’s name again.  Let’s try to learn the names of honest politicians, sincere medical doctors, and hard working patriots.

Alas, here is the text (with my comments interjected)

I pledge to help end hunger in America by supporting feeding America, and our local food bank.
(feeding the hungry is always good – but I would not trust government food bank food)

I pledge to smile more.  To laugh more.  To love more.
(naturally all of this is fine)

I pledge to volunteer more of my time to help children battle serious illnesses
(so far all well and good… perhaps they are drawing us in for some shocking statements at the end?  Getting us to trust what they are saying?)

…with the art of (????)
(I don’t know what he is saying)

I pledge to be a great mother – to be a great father
(well and good)

to continue working with (?????) to make this world a better place for all of our children
(unise-wha?)

to be the voice for those that have no voice.
(cute)

I pledge to consider myself an American, not an African American.
(ok)

To always represent my country with pride, dignity, and honesty.
(as long as my party is in power.  As soon as someone is in that I don’t agree with, I’ll be the least supportive person in the universe)

I pledge to go to USA service dot org
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0xIhF1fXlQ)

and find a service project that I am passionate about.
(…or you can serve your community VIA other organizations)

I pledge allegiance to the funk to the united funk of funkadelika.
(Clearly Hollywood is known for it’s drug usage – you’d think this guy would have at least waited for the shoot to be over)

to never give anyone the finger when driving again
(…on small step, eh pops?)

to always find the humor in everything
(so far, almost all good things… not creepy yet… just obnoxious that Obama is pimping out celebrities.  What’s really depressing about that is that it will probably work.  People don’t think much for themselves anymore…)

to help find a cure for Alzheimer
(well, getting the mercury out of the vaccines would be a good start – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rE8kmifM6HU)

to care for America’s elderly
(apparently by killing them…? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd44XFG9GIAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-y6LRC82bs)

to make sure seniors have access to health care
(and by health care, we mean assisted suicide – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEK_GH7sgcc)

so that our next generations memories will not be forgotten
(seriously, we’ve all forgotten our history (why we fought the revolution) already – what’s the difference?)

to bring awareness to mental disease
(that statement is almost oxy-moronic)

do advance stem cell research
(we don’t care much what the oposition says – in our mind there is really only one side to every argument)

spread the awareness of autism
(alright)

To show more love to strangers, to greet my neighbors, find out their names, going to give them a smile
(all of this is good stuff)

(Tatyana Ali) and ask them how I can be of service to them
(this is good too – Tatyana is so sweet – honestly I do like her)

to be a better mentor to my younger sisters, to continue to be a mentor to big brothers and big sisters.
(Is it sad that people need to be told to do this?  Lots of this stuff really should be automatic…)

to reduce my use of plastic by starting with using less bottled water
(that’s right peasants, just drink the fluoridated (poison) municipal water instead.  We can’t poison you if you drink the bottled water – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2m_LVHD0c8)

to plant 500 trees this year to help our planet
(I’m seriously going to hold her to that.  I’ll be writing a letter at the end of the year to see how it went.  I’ll want pictures – and she’d better do it personally.  No fair paying someone else)

to be more green
(fine but it better not include more TAXES)

to no longer use the plastic bag at the grocery store
(whatever floats your boat – I seriously don’t care how celebrities get their groceries to their car.  I can think of a million things I care about more)

to consume less and cultivate more
(somehow I think this will be an empty promise)

so that we are on this planet forever
(hey, isn’t it her boyfriend who does not even know the order of the planets but is a leader in the ‘climate change’ movement? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQLOnQZGLaw)

for the environment I promise to flush only after deuce, never after a single
(I miss funny comedians)

I pledge to turn the lights off because I use to leave the lights on but we want to conserve energy so I’m going to turn the lights off… you turn the lights off.
(something tells me… the lights… at least upstairs… were never on.)

To sell my obnoxious car and buy a hybrid
(unfortunately the battery on a hybrid is worse for the environment than gas… – http://onemansblog.com/2007/03/27/prius-outdoes-hummer-in-environmental-damage/)

to drive slower and not use as much gas
(as long as I’m not behind you)

to volunteer my time to express the importance of arts education in our schools
(because the last thing we want to focus on is history, science… you know… subjects that might actually advance society.  Let me also say that I do love art… but come on – highlight it over actual classes?)

to sell a culture of intelligence instead of ignorance.
(Good luck.  Public education has made us all complete idiots – http://www.factmonster.com/ipka/A0923110.html)

To help children understand that just because they come from a small place doesn’t mean they can’t dream big.
(well isn’t that a nice thing to say)

To work to make good to end the 200 year old promise to end slavery
(is he talking about income tax?)

the abolition of 21st century slavery
(they must be talking about income tax – I wish)

to free 1 million people from slavery in the next five years
(You could free more than 100 million if you abolish income tax…)

to fight, to become aware, to educate, to not give up, to defend, issues that I care about
(as long as they support Government.  Nobody that wants to be free can speak)

I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama
(Eek… that’s sort of creepy.  How about service to the United States of America?  Obama is supposed to work for us… not vice versa…)

to change how I live, to be a better person, to never stop learning and growing each and every day.
(that’s right, soften the blow from the last really creepy thing that was said)

to commit to my own change before I ask others to change
(Gandhi anyone?)

to be the change
(they really should give Gandhi credit for… his quotes)

to integrate into my heart what I already know in my head which is that we’re all in this together
(that was a really strange way to say that.  How about your stomach… how’s it feeling?)

imagine what could happen next.
(I don’t know… eugenics?)

What’s your pledge? (annoying variations of that)
(mine is to fight for my Country to be Free again… like it was when it started… you know… the opposite of how it is now)

I pledge to be a servant to our president.
(…um…. Fascism?  You don’t want to listen to congress… senate… or the American People?  Just the President… got it.  ::cough::fascism::cough)

And all mankind because together we can, together we are, together we will be the change that we see.
(all thanks to our savior, BHO)

Let the propaganda begin!
