January 25 Bunker Index - SOTU Special Edition!

I watched as much of the State of the Union speech last night as I could stomach. One of the things about living an off-grid lifestyle is that you pay a higher cost for the material things of the world. Or perhaps I should say you pay their true costs. I pay about $3 for every hour of power I provide. Listening to the ravings of a tyrannical megalomaniac is not worth it.

I found plenty of alarming things in his speech and instead of a news roundup today I'm going to pull out some of his sound bytes for critical examination. There couldn't be anything more alarming in today's news anyway.

Unfortunately, I believe Obama is God-ordained. He's perfect for the American people. We wish to have an all encompassing state and so we have been sent a statist. We wish to be slaves so we have been sent a slavemaster. We prefer the comfortable deception to the hard truth and so we have been sent a honey-tongued deceiver.

Before I begin, it is a good time to review a select bit from 1 Samuel 8.

1Sa 8:10  So Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking for a king from him.
1Sa 8:11  He said, "These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: he will take your sons and appoint them to his chariots and to be his horsemen and to run before his chariots.
1Sa 8:12  And he will appoint for himself commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and some to plow his ground and to reap his harvest, and to make his implements of war and the equipment of his chariots.
1Sa 8:13  He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers.
1Sa 8:14  He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants.
1Sa 8:15  He will take the tenth of your grain and of your vineyards and give it to his officers and to his servants.
1Sa 8:16  He will take your male servants and female servants and the best of your young men and your donkeys, and put them to his work.
1Sa 8:17  He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves.
1Sa 8:18  And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day."

1. For the first time in two decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to this country.

This is a reminder that he, the protector, has killed the national enemy. Of course we only really have his word for this as he scripted the entire event entirely for his own glory. Only a handful of Navy Seals know the truth about this, and they aren't likely to go off the reservation and tell us the truth. Assuming he did kill OBL, do not think for a minute that it wasn't staged as a matter of timing.

2. In 2008, the house of cards collapsed. We learned that mortgages had been sold to people who couldn't afford or understand them. Banks had made huge bets and bonuses with other people's money. Regulators had looked the other way, or didn't have the authority to stop the bad behavior.

This is pandering in the worst degree. "Hey, America, it's not your fault that you lived above your means. You were tricked. It's THEIR fault. Let's GET THEM!" Somehow in the "get them" you'll discover that the people who share Obama's ideology will not be found at fault but it will be the "greed" of the Republicans.

3. In the six months before I took office, we lost nearly 4 million jobs. And we lost another 4 million before our policies were in full effect. Those are the facts.

"Bush did it." This passing-the-buck got him elected and it will help keep him elected in 2012. He claims no responsibility at all for the nosedive our country has taken since he was elected.

4. So tonight, I am proposing that every state, every state, requires that all students stay in high school until they graduate or turn 18.

In other words, we're going to encourage the states to enforce slavery. We want to keep the youth in the government run propaganda camps as long as possible. They're refusing to sit still and be lobotomized in record numbers, so we intend to force them to do so.

5. Let's limit any elected official from owning stocks in industries they impact. Let's make sure people who bundle campaign contributions for Congress can't lobby Congress, and vice versa, an idea that has bipartisan support, at least outside of Washington.

He has been one of the worst offenders of this. Do you really think he's going to stop? Or do you think this is just yet another one of his lies?

America, you've gotten what you deserve in Obama, and I suspect you're going to get another four years of it. At best you'll be putting in office someone new who follows the same policies as him and continues to lead our country down the path of destruction.

There is no hope at this point. You cannot save yourselves by electing someone else. Your best chance for survival is to get yourself as far from "civilization" as you reasonably can and limit your interaction with it. Ask nothing from the world and expect them to still turn their hands against you.
