Fascist Cowboys!!! (I am not making this up!)

Due to the ascendancy of tRump, I have been introduced to Paxton's Anatomy of Fascism and am reading through it now. Paxton provides this note concerning the origin of the term "national socialism"

The term national socialism seems to have been invented by the French nationalist author Maurice Barres, who described the aristocratic adventurer the Marquis de Mores in 1896 as the "- first national socialist." Mores, after failing as a cattle rancher in North Dakota, returned to Paris in the early 1890s and organized a band of anti-Semitic toughs who attacked Jewish shops and offices. As a cattleman, Mores found his recruits among slaughterhouse workers in Paris, to whom he appealed with a mixture of anticapitalism and anti-Semitic nationalism. His squads wore the cowboy garb and ten-gallon hats that the marquis had discovered in the American West, which thus predate black and brown shirts (by a modest stretch of the imagination) as the first fascist uniform.

Praxton, The Anatomy of Fascism, Page 55.

I'm sure his failure as a cattle rancher had something to do with that damn liberal fedral gubment.

I was caught, red handed, with TS/SCI eMail - ASK ME ANYTHING....

Yep, it happened to me.

I don't work with classified material, but since I work for an organization that does, I get all the training, all the bulletins and am audited from time to time. Everything I do at work - including all eMail going to/from my work eMail address - is logged, recorded and may be reviewed. Hopefully not by a congressional lynch mob.

So, what happened?

When Snowden's revelations were breaking news, my spouse eMailed me a link from the Guardian which I naively clicked on and opened. Yep, there is was: TS/SCI intel right there on my work computer, infecting my eMail. I had just received a DISCO alert warning me that this could happen and that the information was (and, btw, still is) classified and cannot be viewed / stored on our general unclassified network!

This, of course, caused severe cognitive dissonance for the classified compliance professionals. They ended up issuing a special exception allowing us, in just this one case, to delete the TS/SCI information without turning ourselves in to the FBI. Whooo, that was close! Thank goodness, otherwise I'd be wearing orange overalls.

The fact is that this information is still TS/SCI. if Hillary has a link to one of Snowden's leaked power point slides in her inbox she is IN VIOLATION!!!

MY concerns? No, the concerns...

.... of the vast majority of Amercan voters. Even atheiests poll higher than socialists. There are fewer people who would vote for a socialist than for an atheist...



The United States isn't a socialist country and neither is bernie's much beloved Denmark


"I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism," he said, "therefore I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy."

Of course no one will be concerned about Denmark during the election. They will be concerned about Venezuela. Unlike Denmark's leadership, Venezuela's leaders actually call themselves democratic socialists. Bernie will have to answer for it.

Me, Scared?

LOL, This isn't about me.... it's about winning an election. So what if bernie's a socialist ? Well, the american public is more likely to elect an athiest than a socialist!

I am proud to have her as my Senator - and to take the opportunity to brag that she stopped by my workplace today to give an address !

General opinion at work: She's a real firecracker!

Not Bush, not Obama, not HRC - Bernie reveals the root cause of the rise of ISIS....

In fact, climate change is directly related to the rise of global terrorism," he said. "This is what the CIA says," he went on to say, noting a struggle for limited resources like water and land.

Climate change ? ISIS is attacking Paris in order to secure a water supply?

This doesn't seem to make much sense. Except as a lame attempt to link a problem that he is weak on to a solution he is strong on - even if it's a non sequitur.

My fave, Pussy Riot, with my fave..

Posting in the lounge because it's funny and because it's about carson and I just can't take him serriously .

RE: Mussolini-style corporatism

When Mussolini spoke of "corporatism" what he was referring to is a moderate form of guild socialism or syndicalism. Mussolini was claiming that fascism was in actuality the realization of the goals and ideals of guild socialism / syndicalism. He meant nothing that resembles our modern commercial corporations.
