    kiwiLifter saidThe entire system is rotten to the core. Why aren't Americans rioting in the streets?

    We did once, when I was a teen. But those days are over. In many ways the Fascist Right has won, and turned US Americans into sheeple. "Give me liberty or give me death" has turned into "Don't bother me, there's a good reality show on TV, followed by an NFL game. And then I gotta watch Fox News."

    The question is often posed of why a modern country like Germany let a Right-Wing Fascist dictatorship like when the Nazis seize power 80 years ago. Perhaps in 80 years from now the same question will be posed about the former USA. After we find ourselves in ruins.

    This is true, every branch of government, every police department, every industry - but so is England, Russia, China, the Philippines, Italy, on and on and on.

    You mean, stop posting cute kitty pics on Facebook? What about texting? That phone's not going to text itself ya know. Everyone's afraid that terrorists will be the end of us, but in reality, apathy will destroy this country.

    I would not stoop to his level of suggesting mental unsoundness. His own delusion of how evil conservatives are is enough to show people the kind of person he is.

    It's amazing how the Left sees itself as for 'the people' and fair and tolerant and all these lovely things, yet they are the Fascists.

    People here know my position on the Nazis (that they're Socialists and therefore, Leftists), but even if they weren't, what about the others?

    Stalinist Russia? Socialist. Maoist China? Communist. Pol Pot Cambodia? Communist.

    People here may slander me for my position on the Nazis, but can they truly claim that these dictatorships were not Leftist?

    The near hysterical hatred of anything non-Left on this site is rather amusing at times. I'm glad the Far Left here are not in positions of influence. God help us if they ever do icon_razz.gif

    In regards to the actual article, seeing as though the guy pleaded guilty to the charge of him deleting data, the non-punishment and apparent justification is utterly ridiculous.

    Before people start going on about how evil rich people are and how they want to use less rich people for their own will, maybe you should sit back and think about the fact that this is incidental and there are plenty of rich people who are great and giving.

    Just as a preemptive warning icon_smile.gif

    No. I prompted the question to produce your response. Thank you for playing.

    The Fascist Right has won in the sense that it does indeed control the US Congress, through procedural means. The Senate remains deadlocked by Republicans, and the House is totally in Republican hands.

    The 2014 election will give both the US House & Senate to Republicans, thanks to the botched ACA rollout.

    Fascist Republicans control most US States. That won't change with the 2014 election. They'll have control until at least 2016.

    If that isn't the Fascist Right winning then please explain how they have lost.
