In these dire times of massive debt and running a deficit, the GOP say everyone has to pay.

Gee, isn't Fascism when corporations buy politicians, to help them rob from the rest, and throw them into poverty?

How long can the sheep deny what is happening? They have voted, once again, to be sacrificed at the alter of the wealthy and corrupt.

Did you see the clips shown by Fux, claiming the demonstrators in Wisconsin were thugs, but the clips were exposed as having Palm Trees in the background!

BWA HA HA HA...how stupid can people be to tune into that station?

No.

Fascism is when the state seizes industry and puts puppet capitalism in the front office.

Actually, I agree this is an example of fascist ecoomics ... but I can see the issue on both sides.

You, OTOH, refuse to see that big oil is one of dear leader's largest backers.

Restriction of oil exploration freezes the big players in place in the lead and stops any new competition from being a drag on high prices and high profits.

How do you so consistently get it without ever actually getting it?
