I loved this...how can you not see this in today's society as totally true:
Communist Rules for RevolutionAccording to Snopes.com, the following information is false. However, Snopes has been known to be less than factual, and more than a little liberal leaning.
In May 1919 at Dusseldorf, Germany, the allied forces discovered a copy of these ‘Rules.’ They were first printed in the United States in the ‘Bartlesville, Oklahoma Examiner-Enterprise’ the same year, 1919.
Almost 20 years later, in 1946, the attorney general of Florida obtained them from a known member of the Communist Party, who acknowledged that the ‘Rules’ were then still a part of the Communist program for the United States.
Have we been witness to a hundred years long ploy undermine the strength and integrity of the American people?
Rules for Revolution:
1. Corrupt the young: get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial; destroy their ruggedness.
2. Get control of all means of publicity. Get peoples’ minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books, plays and other trivialities.
3. Divide people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
4. Destroy the peoples’ faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and . (speak against, condemnatory utterances)
5. Always preach ;true democracy; but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
6. By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit; produce fear of inflation, rising prices and general discontent.
7. Foment strikes in vital industries; encourage civil disorders and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward these disorders.
8. By special argument cause a breakdown of the old moral virtues; honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.
9. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext with a view of confiscation of them and leaving the population helpless.
But, you know me..always watching the government do its thing wondering why so many folks are blind to it all. Paranoid....probably not as much as some think. Practical is more appropriate I think.
Plans around here coming up include canning up some butter for winter, bacon for the pantry (I have 3 cases in the deep freeze that needs to relocate), getting some soap made, and then getting some of these neat lotion bars made, and I am looking for a good Wheat and Oat sandwich loaf...this one looks promising, so does this one, and this one, and this one. Ahhh...decisions, decisions. Anyone have a favorite to add to the mix?
I've been browsing through the pages of the Bake Sale section of Taste of Home, too....YUM YUM YUM! With the weather changing, I'm ready to get back to creative kitchen fun. Don't these Caramel Corn recipes here and here just put you in an autumn mood?! Or these for a cool morning? A Spiced pear bread...warm from the oven with fresh butter? Or fudge...who can go wrong with fudge? Cookies and Cream...Peanut Butter...Candy Bar fudge...man, if these used up quantities of fresh milk, we'd have it made :o)
So much to do...always new plans and ideas filtering in among the everyday plans :o)
But, not much of it gets done if I'm here at this machine so I suppose it's back to work. I want some of that caramel corn...where's the popcorn bucket and air popper????
