At the dawning of that day all objects in manifestation stream forth from the Unmanifest, and when evening falls they are dissolved into It again. The same multitude of beings, which have lived on earth so often, all are dissolved as the night of the universe approaches, to issue forth anew when morning breaks. Thus is it ordained.

I had the great fortune of not tuning into the Oscars last night, so today, I don’t have to blog about the four hours of my life I’d like to have back if somehow I’d been given the Clockwork Orange treatment and been forced to endure watching that awards show, but in reading through a pretty funny bit of “live snarking” by Nikki Finke I learned from the comments that good old Hanoi Jane was honored by Hollywood with a role as presenter of some award or another.
So it got me to thinking about Hollywood and its long and storied love affair with Communism, which got me to wondering what the world would look like if the preponderance of Commies in Hollywood had seen their hearts’ desires come true and it was actually the Communists who won the Cold War.
First off, voting would be a whole lot easier . . .
No longer would the masses have to trouble their heads with the issues, the choice would be as easy as showing up to the voting booth and marking the one box available. Just as surely as Hollywood respects a guy like Woody Allen, who has the courage to say what most of the rest of them are thinking in saying that Obama should be granted dictatorial powers, having one man on the ballot and one man in control of everything would make life in America so much more efficient and simple, and what could possibly say “national unity” so loud and clear as a nation where our Dear Leader gets 100% of the vote each and every election until his death?
Speaking of unity, if the Commies had won the Cold War, imagine the joys of those Soviet-era bread lines for all the citizens of the world to take part in. Nothing says getting to know your fellow comrade like standing in line for hours to receive your fair share of the delicious loaves churned out by our state-run bakeries.
If the Commies had won the Cold War, there’d no longer be any desire to “keep up with your neighbors” when it comes to the kind of car you drive because there’d only be two types of cars, cars with the kind of quality and craftsmanship we saw in the Yugo for the proles, and of course, a luxury vehicle for every member of the Politburo, who should never have to suffer the indignity of driving the same types of vehicles as the working class.
Best thing is, it would only take about a dozen years of diligent savings for every prole to have their very own death bucket – er, I mean, fine automobile.
Of course, there would also be Obama phones! Obama phones – free to each and every member of our great society! Just imagine the glorious type of technology that would be free to all comrades, as shown in this depiction of what this year’s latest Obama phone would look like had the Commies won the Cold War.
Finally, we could ban Fox News and all the other news channels would no longer have to waste any effort in trying to have some superficial semblance of objectivity to their reporting. It would be all good news, all the time, a non-stop celebration of our socialist utopia, in this, the best of all possible worlds.
Ahhh yes, it brings back fond nostalgia of the New York Times celebrating the great progress and prosperity of the Soviets under Joseph Stalin while tens of millions were purposefully allowed to starve during his great reign.
You may have heard the story of four loyal Democrats, charged with nothing more than just doing what Democrats do:
In Indiana four St. Joseph County Democrat officials have had felony charges filed against them for allegedly forging Obama primary petitions during the 2008 election.
Authorities charge that the scheme to submit the fake petitions for Obama was hatched at the local county Democrat headquarters.

Under state law, presidential candidates need to qualify with 500 signatures from each of Indiana’s nine congressional districts. Indiana elections officials say that in St. Joseph County, which is the 2nd Congressional District, the Obama campaign qualified with 534 signatures; Clinton’s camp had 704.
But the signatures, which were certified by the elections board, were never challenged. If the number of legitimate signatures for Obama or Clinton fell below the legal requirement of 500, they could have been bounced from the state ballot. Reports have previously put the number of phony signatures for both candidates at about 150, but state investigators plucked names from the petitions at random and cited only 20 individual alleged forgeries as part of their case. They say their investigation of the petitions continues.

When you consider the fact that voter registration office worker Lucas Burkett has sworn in an affidavit that he was a part of the plan and now is willing to testify against his fellow Democrats and that a great number of people have come forward, shocked that their name and address were used and denying that they ever signed the petition, I think the only real question here is how many forgeries it will ultimately amount to.
Now here comes the irony, and it involves how Barack Obama first got his career in politics started. Get this, Barack Obama won his first election to the Illinois State Senate by challenging each and every signature of all four of his fellow Dems in the primary, ultimately having enough signatures thrown out for each of the four would-be candidates to be barred from the ballot, allowing him to run absolutely uncontested! NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL DEMOCRACY IN ACTION!
Here’s the story:
Alice Palmer, an avowed communist who once attended the 27th Congress of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union in Moscow, is the woman who helped launch Barack Obama’s career. She is now a very angry woman and wants to tell her story to the world.
In 2008, Palmer showed up at the Democratic National Convention in Denver as a Hillary Clinton supporter, still resentful toward Obama for knocking her and three other candidates off the ballot for an Illinois state Senate seat some 13 years earlier by challenging voter signatures.
“The Democratic primary, what I witnessed, was one of the most appalling, disgusting things I’ve ever seen in my entire life,” Hollywood-based digital photographer Michele Thomas told WND in a joint interview with Hollywood film producer Bettina Viviano.
In 1995, Obama saw his opening to run for elected office when Palmer decided to give up her state Senate seat and run for Congress in a special election. She went out of her way to make Obama her handpicked successor.
To get Obama’s state Senate race off to a good start, Palmer arranged a function to be held for a few influential liberals in the district at the Hyde Park home of Weather Underground founders Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn.
It’s not likely Palmer would have selected Obama to be her successor in the Illinois Legislature or have introduced him to the Hyde Park political community at the Ayers-Dohrn home unless she saw an affinity between Ayers and Dorhn’s radical SDS Weather Underground history and her own history of openly professed communism and Obama.
After Palmer stepped aside for Obama to take her seat, she suffered an unexpected electoral defeat in the November 1995 Democratic Party primary. After losing the special congressional election, Palmer reversed her decision and decided she wanted her Illinois Senate seat back.
Palmer supporters asked Obama to step aside, but he refused and decided to challenge Palmer’s eligibility for the ballot using what the Chicago Tribune described as the “bare-knuckle arts of Chicago electoral politics.”
Obama hired a fellow Harvard Law School alumnus to challenge the legitimacy of the signatures Palmer received on petitions to qualify for the ballot.
Once he set on the strategy, Obama kept challenging petitions, until he succeeded in getting all four of his Democratic primary rivals forced off the ballot, enabling him to run unchallenged.

Talk about a stab in the back to the fellow commie who got you your start in the first place. It’s appalling, really.
Imagine the injustice that must be felt by the four Dems who Obama bounced from that ticket, learning of what looks like in this case, a legitimately widespread conspiracy of fraudulent signatures and how they must be thinking that if the same medicine had been applied to Obama, Hillary Clinton might have the Indiana ballot and all 72 of those Indiana delegates to herself. Who knows what could have happened from there.
Barack Obama – a guy who challenged every single voter registration he could until he’d knocked all four of his Democrat rivals off the ballot in his first campaign. Can you explain to me why you and your attorney general are suddenly the guys obstructing every state that attempt to address voter fraud?
Unfortunately, both Obama and U.S. Attorney General Eric “There Is No Voter Fraud” Holder were unavailable for comment.
A rally organizers have billed as the “largest secular event in world history” will be held on the National Mall today.
The Reason Rally will bring atheists and nonbelievers together in a hallowed American place… The rally will express some of the alarm atheists can feel at seeing religious creeds on U.S. currency or hearing politicians pay respects to “people of all faiths,” but not those who have none.
When the “largest secular event in world history” only has to apply for a permit of 15,000, that’s pretty pathetic. Who knows if they’ll even make that mark, but there are WNBA teams who have averaged better attendance than that!
These are people who will gather together and most likely spend most of their time talking about how religions are the cause for all the wars, seemingly oblivious to the fact that the century just past saw more people slaughtered by Godless states such as the Nazis, Stalin’s Soviet Russia, Mao’s Communist China and third world Communist dictators than all the previous centuries combined, but I respect the efforts of the atheists to gather together and have their voices as a small minority in America heard alongside everyone else’s.
The part I don’t get is, these are supposed to be people of science, people of reason – where is the logic in trying to brand yourself as a “nonbeliever”? Bullshit. Believing in nothing is a belief in and of itself. You can try to convince yourself you believe in nothing all day long and the only thing it will make you is a nihilist. Most atheists are not nihilists, which means they believe in a lot of things, one of which is the absense of God.
You say you worry about the respect paid to “people of all faiths” but feel slighted as a person who has none? Are you seriously trying to tell me it takes no faith to believe that the universe was created without a Creator, that all of this reality just poofed out of nowhere?!?!
It’s amazing to me how so many smart people can be completely oblivious to the fact that it takes just as much faith to believe in the absense of God as it does to believe that there is a God, but dear atheists, please take heart, when the phrase, “people of all faiths” is used, trust me, you and your faith in the lack of a God are right there in there.
