Stephen McCarthy of Xtremely Un-PC and Unrepentant (blog link on the roll) tipped me off to this cartoon that's making the rounds. The faces have changed, but the truth hasn't. This could have been written yesterday. We've known it was coming - why haven't we stopped it in all this time? Why have we allowed ourselves to be boiled in the vat of creeping socialism all along? Only now to have the BIG GUNS released in one fell swoop? Intelligence agencies destroyed and now useless, nationalization of everything, impossible and outlandish spending...well read 'em and weep.

The text reads as follows:
The banner across the top reads: "Planned Economy Or Planned Destruction?"
The bottle in the fist of the college scholar shouting "Whoopee!" is labeled "Power." The sign below them reads: "Young Pinkies from Columbia and Harvard."
The sign at the back of the wagon, below the drawing of Wallace shoveling money out, reads: "Depleting the resources of the soundest government in the world."
To the right, Stalin says approvingly, "How Red the sunrise is getting!"
And the piece de resistance: To the left is Trotsky (where else would you expect to find Trotsky?) who says, "It worked in Russia!" And on the poster he's creating it reads: "PLAN OF ACTION FOR U.S. --- Spend! Spend! Spend under the guise of recovery - Bust the government - Blame the capitalists for the failure - Junk the Constitution and declare a dictatorship."
I'll leave you to consider what's going on and where we are headed with this. We've taken it slow but we're there now. The beast is loose in the streets of Nazareth, the rats are in the corn...and God knows what rough beast, its hour come 'round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born.
