Unlike the proverbial “calm before the storm,” the current increase in political noise is the storm.

The volume increase is a direct result of the lack of attention to that noise. Eventually, the noise will reach its peak volume, become so distorted that it is extremely unpleasant to listen to, and eventually the “amplifiers” will implode. So the noisier it gets, the closer we are to the end of all this thoughtless blather. Until then, it’s going to get louder and much more obnoxious.

Political noise comes in many fashions. There are, of course, public displays of noise such as the contrived “grassroots” events of last summer. Those have now moved indoors. One example was the 2009 Value Voters Summit.

There is also “silent noise” which can sometimes be dangerous. A few days ago, this was posted on Facebook.


It was one of the Top 100 Facebook Polls. But if the comments are any indication of the poll’s results, the creator may have had a big surprise from the 731 people who responded before Facebook removed it. Here are a few of those comments. The person responsible for this poll is now being sought by the Secret Service and the FBI. This thoughtless blather may also be illegal blather.

Then there is (was) a recent article from John Perry, that even the very conservative Newsmax.com removed from their website.


Fortunately, we have investigative websites that expose these loonies before their words go back into hiding. Here’s some of what Perry wrote:

“There is a remote, although gaining, possibility America’s military will intervene as a last resort to resolve the “Obama problem.” Don’t dismiss it as unrealistic.”

“Military intervention is what Obama’s exponentially accelerating agenda for ‘fundamental change’ toward a Marxist state is inviting upon America. A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.”

Mr. Perry is suggesting the military, whose Commander-In-Chief is President Obama, “take out” the legitimately elected top military leader of our country.

I know many are concerned about our President’s safety and I am certainly one of those people. But I also cannot imagine anyone more in tune with his unique position in life and our country’s history. I have every confidence no harm will come to him or his family. Barack Obama will be our President for two terms and will remain healthy throughout those eight years and well beyond.

Yes, the silent noise is getting louder, and very close to treason.







  1. while I want no harm to come to Pres O, is it not treasonous to not just show a legit birth certificate and put the birthers to bed once and for all? Newsmax and Facebook are as guilty as China, Russia, S Korea and others for stomping on free speech. While it may be vulgar, I don’t agree with censorship. Ignore it, go to another website or turn the computer off.

    • Hawaii, like many other states in the past decade, has gone paperless with many of it’s records. So have many hospitals throughout the nation. A Certificate of Live Birth is the only piece of paper you can get now in those states. I investigated all of this birther nonsense here: https://mkontras.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/this-is-not-about-a-birth-certificate/ No piece of paper will quiet this noise. This is not about his birth certificate, this is about the color of his skin. And our President knows that better than any of us. Addressing a non-issue would be a waste of time.

      As for censorship: there are federal laws against using certain language of a threatening nature against our elected leaders. Just as it is illegal to yell “fire” in a crowded theatre, you can’t advocate the death of a President. None of this is censorship. Free speech, much like all of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, must have some boundaries.
