Are we fascist yet?

Are we not supposed to be morally outraged by the photos of torture in Iraq? Aren't we supposed to be decreasing torture and terror by Americans in the Middle East?

Then why (fucking tell me WHY) did the Senate overwhelmingly approve John "Honduran Death Squad" Negroponte (95 to 3) to be the new ambassador to Iraq? on Thursday no less! We had seen the pictures. We knew the story and yet the Senate overwhelmingly votes for a man whose claim to fame is his use of private military contractors (mercenaries), to terrorize the people Honduras, lest they think they might desire a government by the people, for the people, and not American corporate interests.

as Mussolini said, "Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism as it is a merging of state and corporate power."

The only thing scarier than the merging of state and corporate power, is the merging of church and state and corporate power, which is indeed what we have now.

As an aside -- Nader is polling at 7 percent with Kerry at 43 and Bush at 45. He will throw this election proving once AGAIN the hippies' relevance in the political process.
