Call me crazy

...but it sounds like Jack Bogdanski is pondering the possibility of riots in America.

He essentially says that the country is in such rough shape, that people are so frightened and downtrodden, that the country is heading in the wrong direction on so many fronts, that there is no way the new president can act quickly enough to satisfy those hurting souls. The result, like the built-up anger over racial discrimination, will be that "many Americans won't be willing to wait quite as long as I am to see some results."

He never comes out and says that riots are inevitable, but by invoking the Civil Rights era rioting and comparing that situation to today, it's not a difficult leap to think that Jack sees the parallels extending to the 1960s destruction of America's inner cities. It's also not difficult to imagine that others in a position to implement such violence also see the parallels, and are already working toward those ends.

The country is, in some ways, in rough shape, and many people are worried. But perhaps this is but one of many examples of the hazards involved in praying for The Obamessiah to wave his magic wand and bring the world together at the communal campfire of humanity. Now that The One has been elected, people are starting to realize (admit?) that Obama is only a man, and that miraculous change is not quite the reality they claimed two months ago.

Of course, I'd make this observation on his blog, but he seems to have decided to delete any comment I make.

    You're crazy.

    Having read Bog's post and the associated--approved--comments, there is a certain type of "knowledge" that only those of the Lefty persuasion are imbued.

    To recap: greedy, globalism, corrupt, corporations.

    Or, did I miss something?

    This sort of liberal illuminati "the sky is falling' thinking is what makes some think that we have no other option than the bailouts.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that the lefty loon has rescinded his "ban" on comments, now that the election's over.

    I place the word "ban" in quotes because he was never actually able to ban anybody. He uses a cgi script that locks out targeted ip addresses, so it's a trivial matter to circumvent any "ban" simply by spoofing an alternate address.

    In any case, it's my understanding that he lifted the "ban".

    On the other hand, he's such a whackjob that I question why anybody would want to comment on his site. I was taken with him for a while, and even linked to his site on my blog. But he got so looney that I dumped the link and rarely visit the site. Don't miss it, either.

    It's gone worse:

    Big break coming in Sarah Palin fake pregnancy story
    The bloggers who are determined to find out the truth about Sarah Palin's highly suspicious pregnancy and delivery with Trig Palin say they have uncovered something new that will further prove that the baby is not hers. Having read what these sleuths have come up with over the last several months, I know they mean business when they say stuff like this:

    Over the Thanksgiving holiday, one of my very hard working research assistants has uncovered a piece of evidence which may well turn out to be the final nail in the coffin. I believe it demonstrates conclusively that Gov. Sarah Palin was never pregnant.
    If like me, you're very interested in whether the governor of Alaska paraded around for a couple of months with a fake pregnancy belly and has continuously lied to the public about the child's parentage, you'll want to keep checking here over the next couple of days.

    It's kind of scary to think that he's a tax-law professor. Or, in fact, that he "teaches" anybody.
