A Wrinkle in Time

 

Exhibit One:
Leanings of Modern Lone Wolf Terrorists:
White Supremacy 48%
Anti-Abortion 14%
Anti-government/tax/ Sovereign Citizen 20%
Left wing/ Anarchist 9%
Domestic Muslin Extremist 6%
Despite public anxiety about extremists inspired by Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, the number of violent plots by such individuals has remained very low. Since 9/11 an average of nine American Muslims per year have been involved in an average of six terrorism related plots against targets in the United states. Most were disrupted, but the 20 plots that were carried out accounted for 50 fatalities over the past 13 years. In contrast the Domestic Terrorists listed above averaged 337 attacks per year causing 254 fatalities by 2012, the count is higher now.
It seems our unguided missile that is Pam Geller is ranting about the wrong people.
The Michael Moore tweet summed it up. “One proud White American in less than 2 minutes has killed TWICE as many Americans as ISIS has in 2 years.”
 
Exhibit Two:
The ACA (ObamaCare) continues
Rewind the tape a couple of years, and conservatives were furious at judges who tried to “legislate from the bench.” However, in this decision conservatives wanted Mr Roberts to reinvent a law and remake social policy, but he didn’t, for deferring to Congress’s clear intent is supposed to be the way conservative judges rule.

Exhibit Three:
So let me get this straight
Mr. Graham’s wayward son Franklin, has decided not to do business with folks who support gay rights.
First off, that means he can’t sue in the Supreme Court, but more ironically he made the announcement on Facebook, a gay friendly business, and his site promotes Twitter, whoops; and Google, nuts again; and YouTube; and American Express, and Barnes & Noble, and Pfiser, Ebay, Coke, etc, etc, etc.
Welcome to the modern world Mr. Graham.
On the other hand, Mr. Roberts, true to his conservative foundations, was not in the majority on this one.

Exhibit Four:
Another Bankers crisis, this time in Greece. This is a self-created European Union crisis that will be milked to generate as much economic havoc as possible so other countries will be less inclined to follow Greece’s footsteps,  but rest assured that the Bankers will get their returns, albeit at the cost of everyone else. In Iceland, back in the 2008 Banker created crisis, they put the renegade Bankers in jail, thumbed their nose at the austerity nonsense the non-jailed Bankers tried to foist upon them, and had a steady strong recovery while Greece and Spain and Ireland all floundered.
The Euro was and is a terrible idea as it ties sovereign states into a single currency which then does not allow them to independently adjust their finances to their own sovereign needs. A central control adjusts for everyone but what is good for Germany right now is an economic death sentence for the smaller economies in Europe. If and when the Europeans become all one country the Euro will be a good idea, until then it is just another money making scam to enrich the Bankers. The Bankers have cause far more chaos and harm than ISIS even dares to dream about, but Pam Geller chooses to ignore them too.
 
And thus closes the Mathom House for this month. If you know what a mathom is you are probably on one side of a great divide, but that discussion is for another time.
