From this essay at American Digest (hat tip to Pastorius of Infidel Bloggers Alliance):
The thing is under the boat. The crew suspects as much but can't know for sure exactly where it is. They won't know where Leviathan is until it rises, inevitable and unstoppable, from the deep directly beneath them.
Can you feel it lurking just under the surface? I can and I think you can as well. The Greeks knew it as "Nemesis." Melville's Ahab knew it as "thou damned whale" and he struck at it from Hell's heart. Unperturbed it gathered him up and took him down. Then it took the boat and after that the ship. All save one followed. The whale beneath the surface of America's life is still there and all signs point to its breaching soon. Exactly where and exactly how are still unknown, but soon.
I feel the thing beneath the boat and I think others of my fellow citizens in ever growing millions feel it as well. We do not feel good about it and what it augers for the near and far future.Read the entire essay HERE.
It's large and it's under the boat and it is beginning to rise. The crew is confused and flailing about. And the captain is insane but convinced he's on the right course. During the boom years it was commonly said, "A rising tide lifts all boats." True enough, but the rising of Leviathan can break the spine of our boat and send it down into the Maelstrom. And the thing is under the boat.
Or was Longfellow correct in his poem "O Ship of State"?
...Fear not each sudden sound and shock,Certainly, America has been through times of upheaval several times since the founding of this nation. America survived as the land of the free, the land of opportunity, and the land of prosperity. Now, however, America sails in uncharted waters. There be monsters lurking just below the surface, and the wind is gone from America's sails.
'Tis of the wave and not the rock;
'Tis but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest's roar...
Recently, Pastorius of Infidel Bloggers Alliance drew the following analogy between "Americans" and the pod people of The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, in which the humans have no chance against the alien invaders:
I find that I am surrounded not by fellow Americans who believe in American ideals - and can thus proceed on a somewhat rational course through history under the protection of those ideals - but instead I find that I am surrounded by "Americans" - simulations of citizens, people who look like neighbors and friends, but who are more like pod people, their souls hollowed out and replaced with the goo that oozes out of our televisions; the lure of free stuff, the worship of Barack Obama, and the desire to all have their own reality TV shows someday.And, yes, we truly are a food stamp nation:
