Morrighu’s Foretelling

Posted in Religion, Society on March 19th, 2013

raven-pentacle-bronzeAt the end of Cath Maighe Tuireadh, also called the Cath Dédenach Maige Tuireadh, Morrighu made this dire prophecy known to all those who had defeated the Formor, lest they grow arrogant and complacent in their victory and in the belief that their victory would bring evil to its knees for all time.

Such is Her way – to always remind all that victory, joy, and peace are fleeting things.

Her words that She sang to the Tuatha Dé Danann, such as they have reached us in these latter days:

I shall not see a world that will be dear to me.
Summer without flowers,
Kine will be without milk,
Women without modesty,
Men without valor,
Captures without a king.

[gap: extent: approx. 6 words]

Woods without mast,
Sea without produce,

[gap: extent: approx. 40 words]

Wrong judgments of old men,
False precedents of brehons,
Every man a betrayer,
Every boy a reaver.
Son will enter his father’s bed,
Father will enter his son’s bed,
Everyone will be his brother’s brother-in-law.

[gap: extent: 8 words]

An evil time!
Son will deceive his father,
Daughter will deceive her mother.

Many scholars think of this as being an eschatological prophecy but I’m not convinced of such. She makes no specific mention of the ending of the world or, even, alludes to it, just the ending of all that worth anything in the world and in the races of Man.

Does it not seem that Morrighu’s foretelling was accurate and that we are in, or fast approaching, the times that She prophesied? This world that I see around is more and more becoming less dear to me and much else that She sang of has come to pass or is coming to pass even now.

Americans – What Are We?

Posted in Politics, Society on March 16th, 2013

The American EagleWe, the People of the United States of America are Americans, but what are we in the grand scheme of this great nation? That is one of the most fundamental questions facing Americans in these ever-darkening days. Are we the populace or the citizenry?

This question rarely, or ever, gets asked but it the question that most should be asked.

The Liberals and Progressives cleave to the dogma that we’re, by and large, just the populace. According to them, we’re just the unwashed, unintelligent, uneducated, and primitive masses that must be rule over and looked after by the would-be aristocrats of the intelligentsia and the politicians that they choose for office.

On the other hand, what is labelled as the Conservative viewpoint is that we, the People are the citizenry and we have both the right and the duty to be participatory in both our governance and our society. According to them, we’re both the nation and the nation’s governing body, responsible to- and for ourselves.

At the core of many of the divergences between the Right and Left is the underlying difference of their opinion are as to what we are. Almost everything else ultimately stems from those core beliefs.

It also must be pointed out this particular philosophical divide cannot be bridged. No true compromise between the two position is possible. We, the People are either the populace to be ruled, guided, and protected by our masters or we are the citizenry and, as such, are responsible for ourselves and our nation. There’s no middle ground.

The Giant Slayer

Never in the history of human endeavor and achievement have so many owed so much to so few for so little. Nor has such a debt ever consisted so close to solely of black debt, the debt of punishments and reprisals owed.

Yep, it sound like the perfect treatment for a “new” Hollywood blockbuster remake of an old classic. Somehow, however, I think it’s one that Michael Moore will never, ever create. Then again, he might. He’d just cast Obama as a true and righteous hero, destroying the evil American economy through nothing more than his ability to jive.

Common Sense On Obama

Posted in Politics on March 15th, 2013

Emperor Obama wearing laurel wreathIn these troubled and degenerate times it is best to take a common sense approach to Obama, his words, actions, and inactions, and what passes for the boy’s policies. Such a common sense approach will allow Americans to slough off the detritus of the political kabuki theater we’re forced to endure and take positive action to save our country and our children’s legacy from the clear and present dangers we all now face.

And it’s not as if common sense on Obama is something that we have to research and develop on our own. 237 years ago Thomas Paine prophetically wrote about Barack Obama, though it is doubtful that even someone as wise as he could have predicted the decay that led to Obama being given the chance to attempt to rule.

Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.

— Thomas Paine
Common Sense

The above aptly sums up Obama. The boy is little more than a trumped up, petty and petulant narcissist with deep-seated and probably untreatable delusion of his own superiority. He is exactly the sort of creature that Mr. Paine warned all of at the time of the founding of our nation.

What is truly shocking is how perfectly apropos Paine’s words were when applied to Obama. Paine was originally speaking of hereditary monarchies where the rulers were such solely due to their blood, yet how perfectly does this line up with Obama’s rise to- and continuance of power which was and is based upon nothing other than his Black blood?

It is nothing more or less than common sense.

The Irony Of Hipsters

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on March 14th, 2013

Hipsters seem to value irony, which is probably a good thing since their attempt to stage a “gritty reboot” of the Hippie counter-culture of the 1960s is more than a little ironic in both thought and the details of their execution of it.

The most ironic and woeful part of hipsterdom, however, is the ironic juxtaposition of their lifestyles and their ideologies.
