From Merriem-Webster’s

Main Entry:
fas·cism
Pronunciation:
\ˈfa-ˌshi-zəm also ˈfa-ˌsi-\
Function:
noun
Etymology:
Italian fascismo, from fascio bundle, fasces, group, from Latin fascis bundle & fasces fasces
Date:
1921

1.often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

After the latest government takeover of private industry – I am no longer stating that Obama is leading us towards socialism. He has in fact proven that he is following in Mussolini, Hitler, and FDR’s footsteps and moving this country towards Fascism at a speed that is almost uncontrollable. While FDR certainly was moving towards Fascism and was a great admirer of Mussolini – not even FDR has accomplished the feat that Obama has in less than six months.

It has now gotten so bad in this country that we have China, Russia, and Germany telling us to stop heading towards socialism. Of all the countries to warn the U.S. about it’s socialist tendencies right now – Russia and China? I think they have it wrong anyway – Obama is a Fascist – not a socialist. Socialists take over private business and run everything and make all the decisions for the benefit of the collective. Fascists “partner” with private business and will provide an allusion that the private organization is in control – but in the end – makes all the business decisions – not for the good of the people – but for the good of the government elite.

You guys on the left kept calling Bush a fascist because he supported big business. That just means that you really did not understand the definition of Fascism nor did you study history and the rise and fall of Mussolini and Hitler. These guys were the epitome of Fascist. They took over all private business. Left the corporations in place – but partnered with the CEO’s of those businesses. All production was to the benefit of the government. Under a socialist regime – all production is for the benefit of the people and work and profit are equally distributed.

I want you to really look at what has happened to our auto industry, finance industry, and insurance industry. The government has taken ownership of the largest of these corporations (GM, Chrysler, Bank of America, AIG, etc.) Those banks that took the TARP money are not even allowed to give it back now. If Obama wasn’t in the business of nationalizing our financial system – why aren’t the banks now allowed to become private businesses again? Look at what Obama did to Chrysler – He fired their CEO and also made cuts to their advertising budget. That is the definition of fascist government control over private industry. Same thing for AIG – he feigned outrage over the bonuses – yet – he had complete control over the fates of every single individual working at AIG. He knew all the details – yet – he needed to demonize the industry for the people to cry out. This allowed Obama to take over AIG – no questions asked.

Obama says he doesn’t want to run the auto companies and said on Monday that government will only be involved in the “fundamental decisions.” People – wake the hell up! The most fundamental decisions of any business IS the business. He plans on being involved at every level of decision making with GM. If that weren’t true – then why the hell does he have some totally unqualified 31-year-old kid with absolutely no economic experience, no private industry experience, and no auto-industry experience controlling the fate of GM?

Next on the horizon for Obama’s fascist takeover America is our healthcare system and energy sector. The latest poll states that 80% of Americans are satisfied with their insurance coverage. Why the hell would we allow the government to control of something that the majority of Americans are actually happy with? Once government takes over health care – they can now dictate every aspect of our life – if you don’t believe me – just ask anybody who has been through the Canadian or British Health Systems. Your ability to access healthcare will be based on your health – are you a smoker? are you obese? do you eat more red meat than you should? How old are you? etc. Socialized medicine is based on a system of rationing and there are very strict guidelines as to who will be covered under that system. I urge you to google it yourselves – I could give you thousands of links of examples of this. I have a British family living next to me and the wife is a former nurse for the BHS. She is now a nurse here in the U.S.. Since my wife is a nurse as well – we often have lots of discussion regarding a comparison of the BHS and our system here. She felt stifled as a nurse under the BHS because while she really wanted to provide care to her patients – the government had strict control over what care could be provided depending on the individual’s socioeconomic position and general health.

If you don’t think this is possible – just read the provision of the new HITECH Act under the ARRA. This will require that EVERY physician and health care provider be on electronic medical records by 2014. As part of that requirement – a national database will be created and maintained by the federal government. EVERY EMR system in America will be linked to that national database. You want to talk about “Big Brother!” You will no longer have health care privacy in America. The government will have access to and will maintain every piece of health information about you. This system will also have real-time capabilities for the government to direct your physician during your visit. The government will be deciding your course of treatment – not your physician. Do you still think that Obama is not a Fascist? He will now decided what kind of car you drive, who gets loans from the banks, who gets insured, and who gets appropriate health coverage. Having control over the health care system – he will also be able to control what foods we eat. He will use the FDA and EPA to regulate the national food supply. Don’t believe me? How many times have you read something in the news about one of those lefty states trying to regulate through food taxes or placing bans on certain foods? The FDA and EPA will ensure those bans because the national healthcare database has provided evidence that supports their bans.

Lastly – well, as far as what we know right now to be lastly – with the Cap & Trade scheme that Obama is proposing – the smart grid will also control your thermostats in your homes. You will no longer have control over your own home. Obama said it himself – check that link. This Cap & Trade will also be utilized to dictate policy over the auto industry that the government controls. They will be able to use these regulations to push cars on us that we don’t want.

I know this sounds a bit conspiratorial – but – you have to look at the evidence so far. None of this can be blamed on Bush any longer. Obama has now spent more in 6 months than every administration in the previous 30 years. How the hell can you blame that on Bush? Obama has tripled the national debt in less than 6 months and this year alone plans on borrowing $2 Trillion!!!!!! He had a budget deficit of $850 Billion when he came in to office. You can no longer blame this on Bush. While I did not agree with much of what Bush did – he certainly did not push us in to economic failure of this magnitude. CMBlake has another good link to illustrate this point as well.

I don’t know what the answers are – but – I do know one thing – if this continues – we won’t make it to the 2010 elections to change it. We’re on a path towards Fascism with Obama controlling every aspect of our lives. He is in the process of destroying capitalism and the greatest country in the world. If you didn’t click on that link for the article from Russia – I highly recommend you go back up there and read their dire warning. The politicians are in his pocket – Dems and Republicans. There are now reports out there that even the MSM is scared to oppose Obama – that’s why we don’t see any negative news coverage about Obama and that’s why the MSM will never ask him any hard questions.

Is it any wonder that Chavez had no problem walking up to Obama and giving him that “present?” Chavez recognizes Obama for who he is – a bird of a feather. Obama is doing the same thing Chavez did – But on a grander scale! Is it any wonder that Obama goes around the world and tells foreign leaders what a horrible country America is? Is it any wonder that Obama sides with the Palestineans over Israel? Does it surprise anybody at all that Obama now supports Iran obtaining nukes?  Does it surprise anybody that even today Obama stated to a muslim audience America is “one of the largest muslim countries in the world.”  WTF?  We are not a muslim country – we are a nation built on Christian principles with a Constitution upon which our laws are based – not freakin’ Sharia law. Irate Nate weighs in on this issue as well.

Elections have consequences – and – now we’re all suffering because of ignorance at the polls.

Don’t you just  love the way that those Dems are “suddenly” outraged at the bonuses being paid out to AIG employees?  Interestingly enough, Senator Dodds actually crafted the amendment in that stimulus package that allowed AIG to do just that – and me oh my – Senator Dodds was also the #1 recipient of donations from AIG – care to guess who number 2 is?  Yup – Teh Obamessiah.  Click on the image to take you to the report.

Here’s exactly what Senator Dodd put in that stimulus bill (read the full story here):

  • Crack down on bonuses, retention awards and incentive compensation: Bonuses can only be paid in the form of long-term restricted stock, equal to no greater than 1/3 of total annual compensation, and will vest only when taxpayer funds are repaid. There is an exception for contractually obligated bonuses agreed on before Feb. 11, 2009.
  • For institutions that received assistance totaling less than $25 million, the bonus restriction applies to the highest compensated employee; $25 million to $250 million, applies to the top five employees; $250 million to $500 million, applies to the senior executive officers and the next top 10 employees; and more than $500 million applies to the senior executive officers and the next top 20 employees (or such higher number as the Secretary determines is in the public interest).

You gotta love this fake outrage. Is there anybody out there that still believes in this government to do the right thing for WE THE PEOPLE?

If you’re looking for others of like mind – might I suggest this place: The 9.12 Project.  There are hundreds of thousands of members of this website that are just absolutely fed up with our government and their out of control spending and the power grap.  This is a site for everybody – whether you are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, etc – that wants to come together as a whole to let the government know we are tired of their games. Also – because of the thousands of people rushing to this site every day – it has a tendency to crash.  If you don’t get to it now – bookmark it and try again later.

This is such freakin’ bullshit and hypocrisy coming from Obama and Barney Franks it boggles the mind!

Obama:  AIG can’t justify “outrage” of exec bonuses

Bullshit!  Here’s the last line of that article you retards:

In a letter to Geithner dated Saturday, Liddy said outside lawyers had informed the company that AIG had contractual obligations to make the bonus payments and could face lawsuits if it did not do so.

So – it’s okay for a private company to break a contract with their employees but it’s not okay for a private company to break a union contract?  The damned auto industry is in a shambles because of union extortion and you won’t let them break the contracts.  You guys are despicable.

Just goes to show – you idiots in D.C. don’t have a clue how private industry works.  Those are called “performance bonuses.”  Those bonus letters/contracts are very detailed and explain when an individual will and won’t get a bonus.  Apparently, despite the failings in other parts of that organization – there were individuals who actually met their performance goals. As such, AIG is legally required to pay those bonuses out.  Why aren’t you talking about the number of individuals who DIDN’T get a bonus as a result of their poor performance?

You guys are a bunch of jackasses and trying to get sympathy from Americans and playing corporate America against the rest of America.  You send the tax cheat after AIG! What a freakin’ joke! This just goes to further your damned agenda to socialize and nationalize our country and its industry.  There is no need for outrage here towards AIG.  The outrage should be from the public towards your sorry asses for continuing this hypocrisy.  I’m sure you’ll try to use this as leverage for “card check” that will send this country’s life-blood in to a tail spin.

Wow! 21 Submissions this week! I think that’s a new record! All right guys – let’s see if we can beat that next week – try for at least 22! With all these great submitters – and with all you great readers – this Carnival is become very popular! Keep up the great work people!

Conservative

The Hawg presents Why the Republican party is a mess and how to fix it posted at The Natural State Hawg – ramblings from an Arkie, saying, “It’s time to rebuild a party. Hopefully, my fellow Republicans are up to the task.”

Dude!  You’re making me feel so old!  You were only 11 in 1980?  I’m glad that Reagan impressed you enough at such a young age that you could find a party of values to believe in.  I have to agree with everything you’ve said over there – including some of your recommendations for fixing the problem.  I echoed some of those fixes here myself.  Great post!

Quisani presents The Future of Tomorrow posted at The Quisani League.

I think your end statement says it all:

This “New Era of America” is one that is care free. But only if you are poor.
I too agree that our economy under Obama is going to get much worse before it can get better.  His policies are all wrong.  Only time will tell now!

Pauly T. Kal presents Obama’s Buddy Shootin’ off missiles again! posted at Political Rants from the Right, saying, Muckymud Imanutjob shot off some new missiles last week with a range of 1900km compared to the Shahab3 that only had a 1200km range.  It really looks like these guys want to sit across from Obama unconditionally!

Democrats

Arun presents Election Season! posted at Arun is Bringing You…Your Daily Remedy, saying, “My liberally slanted view of the presidential election and California’s proposition 8!”

Yasu, Arun!  Wow!  You have quite the list of things up in this post to consider!  Also – if you don’t mind – since you consider yourself well informed as it relates to American politics – our constitution is not bound by separation of church and state.  That is a misnomer and no where in the constitution does it make any such statement.  The closest thing you have is the 1st Amendment under Freedom of Religion where it says that:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
This means that the FEDERAL government cannot endorse any religion.  However, you have to remember that our constitution was written that gave all the power to the states – therefore – the Civil War.  The phrase “separation of church and state” has been taken out of context ever since Thomas Jefferson wrote it in a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802.  He was only responding at a national level – not at what a state itself has the rights to do.  It was his “belief” there should be a wall of separation – but he did not declare there is one.

Louise Manning presents 10 quotes on expectation posted at The Human Imprint.

Hello Louise – and welcome.  Some very interesting quotes there regarding Obama and the expectations everyone has given over to him under the guise of hope and change.  I fear he set those expectations way too high for his supporters – and as one of your quotes suggest – there will be some serious let down!

cryton presents Oh! That’s Why John Edwards Wasn’t Chosen as the Running Mate posted at Welcome Back Rosenthal, saying, “The ugly truth comes out, but nobody was volunteering.”

Bwahahaha!  Good one!  Say, has he actually admitted yet that the child is his?

Michael. presents The Wiretapping Debate: George W. Bush and Barack Obama posted at International Law News.

Hey Michael – good post on this issue.  To answer your question – Yes – I believe it is.  I was in the Air Force serving under the Electronic Security Command that reports to the NSA.  I know what our capabilities are – and I also know that there are ways that it can be abused.  However, you forgot to mention the second part to this new law – once the intercept has been made – and it is determined there is a potential national security risk – they must obtain the FISA warrant for continued surveillance.  The transmissions are run through computer algorithms that contain a limited set of parameters.  Once a select transmission fits that parameter – only then would it go live for someone to actually monitor.  Not all phone conversations around this country are being actively monitored.  Also – everyone seems to forget that Clinton did the same thing.  No one seemed to care when he did it.  And, I have no doubt now that Obama has been involved in the security briefings – he too will continue with this policy.

News

Christine Decourlande presents Gingrich – End Adolescence posted at Frog In North Georgia.

Welcome back Christine – Wow!  I completely missed that one from Newt!  I’m with you on this.  Kids should be kids and there should be no rush to get them in to the workforce.  I didn’t have my first job until I was 18 – and that was only temporary while I waited to go to college.  I told all of my kids as they were growing up we would never tell them they had to work.  We also didn’t stop them from getting a job if they wanted one either.  But – there was always a limit – if their grades suffered – they had to quit work.  We also did not allow them to take any of those “work force business classes” where they get out half a day so they can go to work.  That’s a rubbish class.  The kids here go to work in grocery stores as baggers, at fast food joints flipping burgers, or at the malls as cashiers, etc.  They aren’t really learning anything about business – they were only learning how to be slaves to their supervisors.  Also as an aside to something else you have posted – in my state – you can start working as young as 14.  There are exceptions – such as if you’re a family farmer – kids can start in the workforce as young as 12 and get a driver’s license at 14 to help maintain the family farm.

Ron McKie presents Congress is full of pussies posted at Phuck Politics.

I know I can always expect a good one from you, Ron. Gang banged by Princess Di?  Bwahahaha!  You are right on target there though.  Rather than ask the CEO to quit – they should just take all the money back and let them fail!

Sam presents NEW !! The Bank Crisis, the Subprime Mortgage Crisis and How they Affect You posted at Surfer Sam and Friends, saying, “At the foundation of the bank crisis and the stock market crash of 2008 are money, greed and risk.

The New World of Mortgages

Traditionally, when you applied for a mortgage, your bank handled all stages of the transaction. The bank checked your credit, lent you money to buy a house, held the mortgage in its vault, collected your monthly payments and foreclosed on any bad loans. In the 1990s, things changed. A different specialist handled each stage of the mortgage. Mortgage brokers drummed up applicants for mortgages. Mortgage banks lent the money and held the mortgage note. They quickly resold these mortgage notes to investment banks. Mortgage servicing companies collected your monthly payment, and remitted the money to the owner of your mortgage.

Creative Finance with Mortgages

Meanwhile, investment banks put the mortgages into a trust, sorted the mortgages by risk and designed a new financial instrument, called a CMO, collateralized mortgage obligation. Basically CMOs were fancy debt instruments, IOUs with a fixed rate of return, based on bundles of home mortgages. The CMOs were supposed to work just like corporate bonds. Some CMOs, the toxic ones, were based on high risk mortgages, and some CMOs were based on high-quality, lower-interest mortgages. CMOs were rated for quality just like corporate bonds. Everyone in the financial world wanted to own them”

Well – I can’t add any more to this!  I just know that this is the second time this week that I’ve heard about these (Fearless History provided a link in one of my comments to some NPR audio).  Pretty scary stuff.  This is another great post about this economic mess! Surfer Sam just provided a brief synopsis of the whole thing – I suggest you go check out the whole thing.

Politics

Josh Gillespie presents What is an Executive Order? posted at Inside Government, saying, From a new blog that takes a non-partisan look at American politics.  With Obama announcing last week that he plans on reviewing all of GWB’s Executive Orders (which is unprecedented) to determine which one’s he’s going to overturn – this is a detailed look at just what an Executive Order is and what it means for Obama to repeal or overturn them.

Howard Miller presents The (apolitical) reason Proposition 8 won posted at Fulcrum Point Partners, saying, “could be under many categories”

Howard – if only it were so cut and dried as you put it.  I must commend you on putting a very thoughtful post together regarding the reason why it failed.  Unfortunately, some of your anti-Prop 8 radicals that are firebombing churches will disagree with you.  I do agree that it was about core values – but – there are those who believe it was based on hatred and bigotry.  I like the ideas you propose for resolving our differences.

Archvillain presents Tangled webs, etc. posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, “Whatever happened to minding one’s own business?”

Archivillain – good post.  It goes along with Howard Miller’s submission as well – you might want to go check out his post linked here.  However, with regards to your citing of the 14th Amendment as it relates to State’s rights and the passing of Prop 8 in California – You might have forgotten about The Federal Defense of Marriage Act that was signed in to law by Clinton back in 1996 that protects and defines marriage as being between a man and a woman and states that neither the Federal Government nor any other states are required to recognize same-sex marriages allowed in other states.  In order for the state to overturn the rule as being unconstitutional – it will have to go to the Federal level and repeal the DOMA of 1996. But, on the surface of everything else you have stated – while I am Conservative – that means I’m for states rights and limited government – not that social religious conservative stuff that has creeped in to our society.  Government needs to stay out of our personal business – regardless of what that business is as long as it is not harmful or puts anyone in danger.

Aahz presents Why Do We Pay The President Of The United States? posted at Philaahzophy, saying, “From the “things that make you go hmmmm’ department.”

Aahz – welcome to the party brother!  And..Amen to that!  The only thing he has to spend that income on is other investments or big toys!  And..you’re right – they get 100% retirement and 100% benefits – and – it gets passed on to the surviving spouse as well – same goes for Senators.  Senators only need to serve one term and they get full 100% income and benefits.  The Clintons will be soaking us dry for years.  Regarding BO – even if he is a one termer – he will continue to get the same pay for the rest of his life..and considering he’s what – 46?  Hell – we could be paying him $400k (plus any increases) for the next 40 years! Why is it that we only elect millionaires in to this position – knowing they are taking a pay cut and don’t need the money?

Woman Tribune presents Time for Change: Get Marijuana Law Reform on the Agenda! posted at Woman Tribune.

Hey! Holly!  Welcome back!  I won’t comment on this article – you know from our chats how I feel already.  I’ll just let my readers come over and decide for themselves! But, what I will say is – you make some compelling arguments – and – you might find yourself being very disappointed if you think Obama is going to uphold any promises he made on the campaign trail! As myself and everyone else on the right had been saying all along – he is not who he was trying to say he is!

Joseph presents The Obama Plan – What It Includes posted at Penny Pinching.

Hey Joseph – thanks for putting up the details regarding Obama’s tax plans.  I’m a fiscal conservative and libertarian when it comes to government – so – without going in to detail – you know that I already feel that this plan will ruin our economy and amounts to welfare for the poor.  I’ve never worked for a poor person! But, I do have readers that will probably agree with your post.  Go check out Louise Manning’s post up there on expectations – you might need some of those quotes!

Anna Callahan presents Fight Fire with Water: How Obama Won the Presidency posted at Indie Times, saying, Was it Bush’s low approval rating? Obama’s stance on Iraq? McCain’s VP pick? Obama’s funding? Nope, nope, nope, and nope. Find out what viral message Obama used to bring millions of people to his aid and to inoculate himself against all Republican attacks.

Thanks for the submission, Anna! Well – I’m sure it will come no surprise to you (if you have followed this blog at all) that I disagree – but – we’ll let our readers come over there and decide for themselves.  I consider myself to be extremely and well informed.  For you guys to NOT see that he is socialist just means to me that you buried your head in the sand.  After all, Bill Ayers just stated on air Friday morning that he and Obama are great FAMILY friends – not just some guy in the neighborhood and that he has been contributing to Obama’s campaign.  Not what Obama said!  Same thing now with Wright, Farrakhan, and Pfleger – they all came out last week stating the complete opposite of what Obama was saying – in fact – they all said they waited until AFTER the election because they didn’t want to hurt Obama’s chances.  Hmmm.

Holy cow! I don’t know what to say! Thanks to all of you who submitted to the carnival. Without you guys – this carnival would not be the success that it is. There were 20 submissions this week. All of them excellent – and – yes – I do actually go read them all before I allow them to be published.

That way – not only do I make sure I keep this carnival spam-free, but, I also get to learn more about those bloggers who are submitting – plus I feel I’ve learned a bit more after having read the submissions.  I usually will comment here on what I’ve read over there – but – given the total number of submissions that are here – as much as I would love to comment on ALL of them – I would be up forever and probably miss deadline.

In any case – be rest assured – I have reviewed all of these submissions.  There are some I would really love to provide commentary on here – but – that just wouldn’t be FAIR to the others that I don’t comment on.  Oh, Crap!  I think I sounded like “That One” for a moment – I probably shouldn’t be reading those liberal blogs as much as I do! LOL.  Please do go check these all out.  They are all excellent – some you will agree with – others I guarantee you won’t – and since this is a mish mosh of submissions – whether you are liberal, conservative, or libertarian – what I said above still stands true!
