  • I believe that we are in a big mess and headed down a very bad road.I believe that something (and I dont know exactly what) is about to take place.Consider also how the politicians are starting to force things that the majority does not want.Dangerous ground indeed.

  • Dude, really? I thought Liberals were supposed to be the PC police. I guess it's different when you are part of the group that is supposedly being maligned. I know people who attended tea parties that call it that.


    Thanks for stopping by and contributing nothing, preciate that.

  • I do not care for the term 'teabaggers' being used either...lol but ill overlook it to give my opinion which is that we are likely headed for a really bad time and bad place.. I think this recession now will seem like just a blip in comparison to whats to come.

  • Thank you, Tn for not being a whiny ass = ).


    The point was, do you think our Federal govt and Corporations are too close and Cons & Libs just look at it from different directions.

  • I think this person is "quietly" "calling" out rightists. Since the same statement "The fusion of corporate economic power and the government is called fascism" could also be defined as Marxism. Yet the person clearly states Fascism which is what the left usually accuses the right of doing. But Marxism is where the law is considered an instrument of oppression and control, and which the ruling class uses against the working class. (aka combination of economic power and government.)

  • Marxism seems to be right where our beautiful country is being taken...which some of us figured months (or longer) ago..
