The Comedy News Network at its best. I find it great entertainment, thanks for sharing.

Yeah, CNN sucks, they shouldn't put morons like that protester on TV.

Q: Why is Obama a fascist?

A: Because he is.

seriously though, did you get your panties in a bunch when fox news pundits defend Bush when called a fascist? I think the term's a bit extreme for the circumstances.

“ Fascism is a system in which the government leaves nominal ownership of the means of production in the hands of private individuals but exercises control by means of regulatory legislation and reaps most of the profit by means of heavy taxation. In effect, fascism is simply a more subtle form of government ownership than is socialism. ”

— The Market for Liberty


Sounds pretty close to what's going on to me.

What do you expect, CNN is now an entertainment channel, not a news media?!

Haha she powned those dummies. Remember folks before publicly speaking on a subject, make sure you are highly educated in that area.

I saw people protesting taxes yesterday as well. Right outside the post office. Kind of seemed ironic to me. I mean don't get me wrong, I am against crazy over spending. I just thought to myself how they really didn't think that one through.

so increasing the taxes of the top 1% of America to a level they were at during a previous administration is the same as this?

I'm not sure, but I don't think that raising the taxes of the highest earners back to a tax rate that they were already at 15 years ago qualifies.

Do you honestly think he will stop at that?

I don't think he will, and I already pay close to 50% of my income in one tax or another. I just can't afford anymore Mike.
I have two kids to feed, and a meager life to maintain.

There are MANY forms and definitions of Fascism. Webster is not the know-all end-all of political terms. Government control of private industry to raise profits while increasing the percentage of tax due on those profits sure as fukc doesn't happen in a capitalist system. I won't go as far as to say Obama is a Fascist but the big gov't moves lately are heading in that direction.
