by Joseph D. O’Shaughnessy I normally don’t sign what we all call posts. I don’t even refer to them as “posts.” Rather, I call them editorials or articles. But I don’t want any misunderstanding when it comes to who wrote this stuff about Trump. I don’t like him and I don’t like what he is […]

Paul Ryan and the Republican/Fascist leaders in Congress want to repeal Obamacare and leave you with the same kind of health care you had before the Affordable Care Act was initiated.

November 28th, 2016 · Comments Off on Down Trump’s Golden Brick Road · Democracy, Economics, Fascism, General, Human Rights, Jobs, Labor, Obstruction, Politics, Populism, The Budget, Wall Street

We must examine the Trump infrastructure plan. At first, it sounds, well, pretty good. And then you get the details. First, why do you think Trump is proposing an infrastructure plan? Is it because he really wants to put people to work? That is dubious. If he did, he would have brought into his circle […]

Hitler, above all, was a racist. He thought that interbreeding between different races was wrong, but not merely wrong—disastrously wrong. He thought that Darwin’s discovery of the laws of evolution extended to humans and races. He was an intelligent, fanatical  and evil man and his dedication to a Fascist world caused the deaths of 50 […]

There are always conspiracy theorists in abundance. And when it comes to elections, from Kennedy in 1960 to Bush in 2000, some people will have the facts and others will ignore the facts. But facts, even those with the Jon Stewart-described, “known Liberal bias” are difficult to avoid. The fact is that the brothers Koch […]

January 27th, 2014 · Comments Off on The Case For Liberal Economics · Corporations and Industry, Economics, Fascism, General, Jobs, Labor, Lobbying, Obstruction, Politics, Populism, Social Security, Taxes, The Budget, Wall Street, Wars and Militarism

We have serious economic problems. As a country, we need to move ahead. China is buying up the world’s resources. Soon Russia will do the same thing. What China and Russia do not buy up, the Middle Eastern oil countries will buy while there is still something left. Our largest financiers are holding their cash. […]

We are going through the worst period in American life since 1946. By the end of World War II, we had lost over half a million brave Americans and a much larger number were returning to civilian life and adjustment from injury and the shock of war. But Americans had already gone a long way […]

The Danger of a Nazi America

April 26th, 2012 · Comments Off on The Danger of a Nazi America · Democracy, General, Human Rights, Politics, Populism, Wars and Militarism

A lot of Right Wing radio commentators toss around the word “Nazi” these days and it seems that many of them have no idea what they are talking about. Of all absurd things, they call the President a Nazi at times when they are really getting loony. President Barack Obama is a man whom many […]

October 6th, 2011 · Comments Off on Are the Republicans Really Fascists? A Comparison. · Corporations and Industry, Economics, Labor, Politics, Populism, Science & Technology, Wall Street, Wars and Militarism

Anyone can call someone else a name. People call others Fascists or Nazis all the time on the Internet. People who have these little backwoods militia are often called Nazi-wannabees or actually in some cases call themselves Nazis. But the fact is that the term “Fascist” has a specific meaning. While Nazis were Fascists, many […]

Fascism and Neoconservative Republicans

March 25th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Media, Politics, Wars and Militarism

The word “Fascist” as with the terms “Socialist” and “Communist” are thrown around a lot by people who have no idea what they mean. If you want to know what those terms really mean, find someone who was in some branch of military counterintelligence, the CIA, the security section of the State Department, Defense Intelligence, […]
