January 20 Bunker Index - Bone Weary

It's not yet 8am and I'm already sick of people and the world. Shortly I'll be back home with my loving family and can spend some time on farm projects, but I've got to go through hell to get there. No matter. I'm willing.

As I'm watching the politics unfold in advance of the 2012 election, I'm beginning to see clearly how we may end up with another 4 years of Obama. All of the Republican candidates are self-destructing. Ron Paul is being marginalized as usual and this year there's a disturbing new trend of "conservatives" attacking him as well for his isolationist stance and his lack of support for the perpetual wars we're fighting. What a disaster. I think Americans should probably brace themselves for 4 more years of Obama at this rate, and they'll be the absolutely worst years as he no longer has to handle us with kid gloves.

Hang in there, folks. We've got another weekend in front of us. Time to scrape out what time we can muster and use it for our own meager ends.

1. Ann Barnhardt is discussing rumors of banks refusing large cash withdrawals. Some good advice there. I don't know for sure this is really happening on a widescale yet, but it will. Don't wait for it.

2. While many websites "went dark" to protest SOPA, hacker group Anonymous took a different tact. They brought down many music and movie websites through hack attacks and did not forget to include government websites as well. They took down the DOJ, the FBI, and the government's copyright websites as well.

3. The state of Texas airdropped 7000 square miles of territory with a rabies vaccine in an edible packet to entice varmints to consume it. What an incredibly ill-conceived notion this is. Where is the science indicating that this might be safe? They fed it to a coyote in a lab perhaps? Do they realize that the coyotes in the wild are consuming completely different food? I wonder if some lamebrained plan like this won't actually be the start of a real "zombie apocalypse" as the rabies vaccine mutates and then jumps species over to humans.

4. A homosexual advocacy group is pushing a new training video on educators on how to address gay and lesbian issues with 6-12 year olds in school. Are your children in public school? Are you aware of what they're being taught?

5. Buying your way in is considered normal in the Obama administration. A report indicates that out of Obama's top 350 campaign donation "bundlers", 68 of them received posts in his administration. Is this the same guy who railed against Bush's cronyism in order to get elected?

6. This one amuses me to no end. This Democrat Representative is telling wealthy Americans that they have to "pay their fair share", but meanwhile her husband is sitting in prison for tax evasion. Again the total hypocrisy of the left is exposed. They would be a joke if there weren't so many idiots in America who actually fall for their nonsense.

On #1 - yep the banks look at you like you're sick if ask for a withdrawal of a few thousand in cash...don't know if it was innocent and to make conversation or what but was asked, why? what were my plans for the money etc... um..none of your business. This after causing a commotion at the bank.. guess they really weren't sure if they could give me $5k

On #2 - see this article:

This quote from the article stands out: The Electronic Frontier Foundation, which defends free speech and digital rights online, said in a statement that, "This kind of application of international criminal procedures to Internet policy issues sets a terrifying precedent. If the United States can seize a Dutch citizen in New Zealand over a copyright claim, what is next?"
