I'm too bitter and lazy to unlock links and read someone else's words. But if fascism is anywhere in the directions I know you're taking 'bout my current government. And it makes me sooooo bitter.

I told you I was lazy but I read enough of your profile to know I love you. Don't freak out. I'm not going to stalk you, just going to put you on my blog-roll baby. Your friend in bitterness.

Utah Savage- Thank you. I love your writing as well.

Thanks for the link Fade. Somebody in comments at Jonah Goldberg's Liberal Fascism (now there's an oxymoron for you) linked the same post, and I've been overrun with right-tard trolls for days now. Could definitely use a bit of balance, that's for sure.

Fucking Apologists. Can't stand those types.. My comment from Les Enrages:

The truth is, there was nothing "Laissez Faire" about the Govts current policy of destroying regulation and oversight in order to let the collective good ole boy run what they laughingly all "free market". It's all about the guys at the top (all members of the fasces) directing the benefits to each other in fast, furious, short term fashion while swallowing up as much of the individual investors money and as much public capital as they can. These few benefit from this fascist corporatocracy while everyone else suffers. These guys may bitch about having to put on his seatbelt or being Forced (waaa) to use a better, more energy efficient light bulb. But they blindly step over the loss of our actual rights. I could give a shit less if the public is led to purchase/follow guidelines that save us time and money and make our way of life better in the long run. What I AM More Concerned with IS the factors SBT mentions- Constitutional Rights and our crashing economy DUE ENTIRELY to the Vicious, locust-like appetites of the small group that is in power. This is a small group that exerts fascist tendencies in Broad swaths. These "libertarians" are a bunch of upper middle class hypocrites who don't give a good goddamn about our country. They are simply selfish fuckheads who only concern themselves with their own bank account and their ability to avoid government taxation. This group of people are second only to the neocon Fascists themselves in falling all over themselves in order to apologize for the follies of Big Business. If there were no Market regulation, no environmental regulation, and no anti-trust legislation, the country would fall apart overnight. And only Big Business would win. THIS is what has been happening for the past 20 years as these cunts' fight for LESS oversight has been slowly eroding our country. Been for a visit to the outdoors lately? Our Environmental protections, which were a sham in the first place- have definitely went to hell now. The next disaster we face is one borne of chemical, radiation, or other dumping by corporations who have seen the EPA disbanded during the Bush years.

It is sheer folly to trust men who live off Profit and Profit alone with taking care of their companys waste in a safe manner. Water regulations in Texas are a joke. I have seen firsthand waste dumping on an amazing scale. RIGHT into the Lubbock Water system. Market regulation is much the same- Without it, we get Bear Stearns and the Subprime mess. We have corporate looters. Without oversight on military matters we have a hundred million dollars "lost" to Iraqi warlords who are killing U.S. Soldiers and we have a Multimillion dollar fire sale of state of the art missle systems to Saudi Arabia, home of the 9-11 planners. Why didn't Israel throw a fit about that? Well, they are too entrenched in the being the biggest Middle East country recipient of our bombs and also the biggest Welfare country living off of American aid. Unless you count China, but hey- that's your "Free Market" working. Thats' Wal-mart in every city in America, funneling money to China. Thats these same dipshits here investing in Chinese mfg companies instead of American interests. Sam Walton would have put a bullet in every one of his children's heads if he knew they would sell out their country like this, from a store that once ONLY sold American made products.

Enjoy your "free market" and your freedom to pay as little taxes as you possibly can, all the while giving lip service to the very Real Fascists who control this nation right now. One of these days, Your selfishness will destroy the nation utterly. And you will be outnumbered by the PEOPLE, the true heart of America, and they won;t be swayed by your ingenous arguements.

They will be too busy looting your lifetime's collection of possessions. When the country crashes, remember who is truly at fault. And believe it, Fuckers, it wasn't The Middle Class or the guys at the bottom...
