(Excerpted from the chapter entitled “Nemesis,” from Mike Vanderboegh’s upcoming novel, “Absolved.”)
“Who today still speaks of the extermination of the Armenians?” — Adolf Hitler, 1939.
In the Greek tragedies Nemesis appears chiefly as the avenger of crime and the punisher of hubris . . . She was sometimes called Adrasteia, . . . meaning “one from whom there is no escape”; her epithet Erinys (“implacable”) is specially applied to Demeter and the Phrygian mother goddess, Cybele. — Wikipedia.
The basement room was black, illuminated only by the flickering images of the wide-screen television. Six men sat in various easy postures, scattered between couches, easy chairs and bar stools.
One of them held the remote.
On the screen Joe O’Reilly entered a room and demanded, “Jesus Christ, Mick, where the HELL have you been?”
“Been workin'” muttered an exhausted Michael…

So the Left Thinks the United States is “Exceptional” Now?
By Rob Olive
September 13, 2013
Well, better late than never, I suppose.
I guess I should welcome the Statists to the party…although it took them a while to arrive. Oh, I know, Woodrow Wilson hinted at it and FDR offered his own version of it in 1941—although he included “freedom from want” in his laundry list, as well as other bits of socialist dogma. In a country founded upon individual liberty, shouldn’t that be an individual responsibility, as opposed to a “right” or imagined “freedom” to be granted and guaranteed by the State? Then again, it was FDR.
The French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville is credited with the first use of the term “exceptional” in reference to the United States in 1831. In Leftist circles these days, it’s fashionable to characterize de Tocqueville’s words as…

>From John Galt’s Shenandoah:
It took them a long time.
I was stupid not to realize the obvious fact. Here we are, finally, united in a new world order of happiness and a future so bright that I have to wear shades. For most people much like myself, we always thought it was the United States and the armed citizenry that stalled and prevented the establishment of this new order, both economic and political. Sadly us Americentric types focused on our nation as the center of the universe failed to see the big picture and I did not realize until tonight that it was not Presidents Bush and Obama that prevented the new order from taking hold.

>From David Codrea:
US report predicts nuclear or biological attack by 2013
That’s just one scenario. There are plenty of others, both natural and man-made, and at the risk of incurring ridicule, Reichstag fires to justify new “emergency” powers have been known to happen.
I wonder what government policy would be in a full-blown martial law national lock-down?
I wonder if law and order would completely break down in significant portions of the country and if we in the middle of it would be on our own?
I wonder if–Katrina lawsuit rulings notwithstanding–a military/police deployment would try to round up guns in some areas?
I wonder if gun owners would accept that?
I wonder what some would do once civil recourse via elections and lawsuits was indefinitely suspended?
I wonder how people would react to forced relocations?
I wonder why any talk of preparing for…
