Just out of curiosity, why would any city in their right mind want to host a G-8 or G-20 conference?

Why the masks for the 'protesters' at those events? Are they worried about their tenure review?

While I was driving my cab yesterday I heard Rush Limbaugh say that up to the Holocaust Hitler and the Nazis were Leftists.

I have to disagree.

Marx was a raving antisemite. Old school Progressives (the one they NEVER teach you about in the public schools) had "issues" with those they saw as the "inferior" races. (Africans, Jews, Asians, etc.) And eliminating those who don't fit into the collective makes perfect sense to a collectivist.

I've come to the conclusion that anyone who sees another person as either a tool to be used, or as trash to be disposed of, is essentially a Leftist. (Which pretty much puts me to the right of Attila the Hun.)

The Anatomy of Fascism

Fascism has elements of the right and the left, which is why rightists see leftism, and leftists see rightism. But it is based mostly on nationalism, which is right-wing. Other elements come and go because fascism is quick to adopt any tactic which will bring them power, and quick to drop any tactic that prevents them from acquiring power.

Ah yes. The Jonah Goldberg school of hyper partisan revisionist ideologies as endorsed by Human Events, Newsmax, and the Moonie Times. Communists are left wing. Nazis are left wing. And everything that is right wing is pure as the driven snow. Everything that is evil is left wing. Atheism is left wing and therefore evil and other such nonsense.

That was before the switched parties. They were Dixiecrats. All of them switched to the Republican Party or got voted out of office.

Democratic Party didn't mean left wing at that time. In fact, for the majority of cases even today they're not all decidedly left wing.

Strom Thurmond was a Democrat and switched to the Republican Party.

Which is not to say there is anything wrong with the Republican Party. They just got polluted by these cretin and the televangelical pandering theocrats during the 1980s.

How nationalism is considered right wing, I don't know. Russians under the Soviet Union were pretty nationalistic. So are we saying communism is a right wing ideology as well?

I think of leftist to primarily mean socialist economic policies.

61 Gus  Sat, Sep 26, 2009 12:39:19am

Fascism can be either left wing or right wing. Or as in the Merriam Webster definition: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control. The same with a dictatorship which can be both. There is also sometimes a mixture of the two between left and right. The 3rd Reich were also political opportunists and often weaved a path between leftist and rightist idealism.

re: #54 lazardo

The one thing I don't get though is how National Socialism is somehow on the other side of the political spectrum from the Internationale.

As has been discussed here before, the whole left-right dichotomy comes from a time when the old monarchy/theocracy system was being compared to democracy (or popular rule.) Trying to force later developments like the German National Socialist party and the Communist Party in various European countries into the right-left dichotomy is due to fail at some point.

In the old sense of the term, the "true" "right" today would be the theocrats in places like KSA, or in countries where the monarchy still has power (like Thailand.)

Ultimately the attempt by the ugly-o-sphere to smear the President as being simultaneously a Nazi and communist will peter out, I think, as people will just tire of the name calling.

What President Obama believes in is apparently a slightly more European flavor of socialism than the currently practiced but we-dare-not-name-it American form of soft socialism.

Communism, fascism and theocracy are all variants of collectivist totalitarianism - that's what they have in common.

Where they differ is in the rationale by means of which they justify state control over individuals.

Communism justifies it in the name of the erasure of class distinctions.

Fascism justifies it in the name of racial purity, supremacy, and exceptionalism.

NAZI is the acronym (in German) for National Socialist Workers' Party.

Notice the 'National" part; this is because fascisms in general, being justified by racial supremacy, tend to be blood-and-soil movements, and thus tied to a particular tribal homeland geography. Sure, they'll conquer other geographies and the races found there, but always with an eye to first subjugating them, and then exterminating and supplanting them with the One Pure Blood, because people cannot change their races.

Communism and the various theocracies, otoh, are international in their ambitions, because people of all races can be religiously or politically/ideologically converted, and extermination is reserved for those obdurate individuals of any race who stubbornly refuse to be proselytized or re-educated into the One True Faith or the One True System.

It's also important to keep in mind that the left-right dichotomy is very different in Europe than it is in America. In Europe, during the rise of fascism, the left wing was the side of democracy and people's rights, and the right was the side of the bourgeoisie and the elites.

No one can honestly claim that fascism was interested in granting people their rights.

And the reason the German labor leaders fled pre-war Germany was? And what religion were most of these labor leaders? This also doesn't take into account two things: the Nazis played labor for populist cohesion. At the same time, those at the pinnacle of the Nazi hierarchy was the military society and, production. While it was based highly on the ingroup, ones standing within a Nazi hierarchy was paramount and there was no effort to create a collectivist equality between citizens which is a common factor with a leftist ideology.

Persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust

In the 1920s, homosexual people in Germany, particularly in Berlin, enjoyed a higher level of freedom and acceptance than anywhere else in the world. However, upon the rise of Adolf Hitler, gay men and, to a lesser extent, lesbians, were two of the numerous groups targeted by the Nazi Party and were ultimately among the roster of Holocaust victims. Beginning in 1933, gay organizations were banned, scholarly books about homosexuality, and sexuality in general, were burned, and homosexuals within the Nazi Party itself were murdered. The Gestapo compiled lists of homosexuals, who were compelled to sexually conform to the "German norm".

An estimated 1.2 million men were homosexual in Germany in 1928 (6% of men over the age of 20). Between 1933-45, an estimated 100,000 men were arrested as homosexuals, of which some 50,000 were officially sentenced. Most of these men served time in regular prisons, and an estimated 5,000 to 15,000 of those sentenced were incarcerated in concentration camps. It is unclear how many of the 5,000 to 15,000 eventually perished in the camps, but leading scholar Ruediger Lautman believes that the death rate of homosexuals in concentration camps may have been as high as 60%. Homosexuals in the camps were treated in an unusually cruel manner by their captors, and were also persecuted by their fellow inmates. This was a factor in the high death rate for homosexuals, compared to other groups.

Sound familiar?

After considering various major tv and cable outlets such as CBS and HBO, we finally decided to go with youtube as our primary broadcasting medium. These videos are we hope, an informative insight into the psychology of butthurt as well as a potential cause of butthurt in and of themselves to individuals who are already susceptible to the condition.

Announcing the debut of the Greater Wingnuttia Butthurt Level Detection System! It's a five level system, each level features a different wingnut. We've dedicated the highest level "Massive Butthurt" to Glenn Beck:

Might be wise to check with Charles on it, then.

But I've read what Sarkozy has to say about Obama's UN performance, and it's most definitely cutting in its criticism of naievete.

Oh yes, I'd call that as an orange alert too - definitely a throbber.

I love how the people who maintained the prayer list treat it as some kind of weapon. "I've got the prayer list and now you don't have it!". I mean, it was a sweet idea and a very nice gesture towards those inclined to pray for people they care about. But the point is that people who care about other people will pray for them anyway. Or not pray and still care. If it makes these people feel better about themselves because they are the ones posting it (and probably not caring about the people on it, judging by the last few keepers) then fine.

Wabbi: Here is your prayer...

Now I've heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I've walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don't even know the name
But if I did, well really, what's it to you?
There's a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn't matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn't much
I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I'll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Respectfully disagree, FBV. There is no reason to feel the need to close an account.

Normal people simply stop posting at sites they don't like or don't have time for anymore. and the webmaster eventually pops such accounts into an inactive file or deletes them.

These are weird histrionic fits that are about some fucked up psychological need. They wouldn't use such a button even if it were provided-- and I don't know of any political blog that has such a function. (Apart from forums, where you can delete your account).

Dear heart, you forgot "if you choose to consort with thought criminals." What are you, Queen Bee of the Heathers?

Anyway, I re-read wahabicorridor's post, and I must concede that "I'm grabbing the prayer list and running away with it and it's mine mine mine!" would be one way to interpret her phrasing.

But I would suggest that a less uncharitable and loaded way to read it would be "yes, I've been staying away from LGF on purpose because I'm disgruntled, but not keeping up with the prayer list maintenance has been a not-on-purpose side effect of that."

In other words -- yeah, I guess she "flounced," but attributing some sort of malevolent pettiness to her in regards to the prayer list seems thoroughly overblown and unnecessary.

Sigh. The only way that she could have "taken it with her" is by hacking into LGF's comments archive and deleting the most recent iteration of the list, which is right here, from 6 September.

Since the "prayer list" exists as a public record on the LGF database, and since Charles is much too good at what he does for wahabicorridor to actually remove the prayer-list posts from the database without Charles' knowledge, the accusation that she "took" the prayer list is literally nonsensical, and several of you need to get a fucking grip.

314 Throbert McGee  Sat, Sep 26, 2009 7:05:09am

Sorry to snap at you, IceWeasel -- I'm not defending wahabicorridor's "flounce," because I don't know whether her reasons were honorable or not. But I'm not attacking her for it, either, because as exits go, hers was at least fairly restrained and quite refreshingly concise, compared to some of the windy manifestos others have posted.

On the other hand, though I haven't talked to her much in recent years, I respected her well enough back in ye olden times (pre-Rathergate) that it upsets me to see people going out of their way to find fault over something that really isn't that big a deal and wasn't necessarily intended as a hostile gesture (namely, that she neglected to delegate responsibility for the prayer list to someone else when she chose to start distancing herself from LGF -- it could've been a simple oversight).

re: #314 Throbert McGee

You are too generous at times in giving the benefit of the doubt, Dear. Truly.

It has been apparent to me for awhile now, quite awhile, that there were certain people who did not like the fact Charles started taking a firmer hand around here in shaping LGF to be what he wanted it to be rather than allow it to continue to be their little sandbox. Some never liked the dinger. Some freaked out because Charles added monitors to help him delete comments (one was so bothered by this she melted down one morning because a monitor had the nerve to do their job and deleted her for quoting a troll). Others have issues with the thread topics or they don't like that viewpoints that differ from theirs are welcomed here. They have allowed various resentments over these development to build up to the point they are now lashing out. I will not mourn them leaving and I will not give them the benefit of the doubt when they post their little flounce, or sneak off and LIE to respected Lizards as to why they are not at LGF. They are bitter and hostile over a blog, and you want others here this morning to get a grip? Hon- it is others elsewhere who need to get one.

In the German music video, the Steini Girl, dressed in shorts and a tight singlet, poses provocatively outside various government buildings and Berlin landmarks.

that it upsets me to see people going out of their way to find fault over something that really isn't that big a deal and wasn't necessarily intended as a hostile gesture (namely, that she neglected to delegate responsibility for the prayer list to someone else when she chose to start distancing herself from LGF -- it could've been a simple oversight).

She specifically mentioned it and that she was taking it with her. No oversight there at all. And it is a really big deal to the religious and the people on it.

But apology accepted for your snapping. The Heathers line was funny too.

Sarkozy speaks truth to power.

“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.

“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.

“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.

The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.

“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.

Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade “naive.”

President Obama yesterday did his best impression of a high-school soph omore participating in his first Model UN meeting, retailing pious clichés he learned from his pony-tailed social studies teacher.

...

Obama's mistake is in believing "the interests of nations and peoples are shared." They aren't. Georgia has an interest in becoming a strong nation capable of defending itself; Russia has an interest in quashing it. China has an interest in dominating all of East Asia; Japan and other neighbors have an interest in containing it.

Iran has an interest in gaining a nuclear weapon; Israel -- and the United States -- has an interest in stopping it.

Homogenizing is a method where the fat is blended into the cream. Non-homogenized will separate (the fat from the milk part) so you have to shake it up before you use it to blend it back up. 1/2 and 1/2 is a blend of cream and milk - but it's bought that way.

I use AT&T and am pretty satisfied with the 3G network. It's not very fast, though. You might want to look at Sprint. They're supposed to roll out 4G soon.

Wait a minute. Obama concealed whatever information he had about this facility–information that could have been used to move domestic and international opinion. He could have gone to the UN with some visual aids–like Bibi Netanyahu did with the Holocaust documents–to make the case to the international community. At the UN he could have dispensed with the filler material on global warming and his insincere praise for open markets and used his opportunity to build consensus so he could then make the case for robust action.

re: #433 ArmyWife

Homogenizing is a method where the fat is blended into the cream. Non-homogenized will separate (the fat from the milk part) so you have to shake it up before you use it to blend it back up. 1/2 and 1/2 is a blend of cream and milk - but it's bought that way.

Is it better in some way when you do a "mini-homogenization" by shaking it than it is if it's commercially homogenized? I seem to remember in the 70's some thought the fat gets broken down into too-small of bits and gets in your bloodstream or something.

re: #327 Sharmuta

You are too generous at times in giving the benefit of the doubt, Dear. Truly.

It has been apparent to me for awhile now, quite awhile, that there were certain people who did not like the fact Charles started taking a firmer hand around here in shaping LGF to be what he wanted it to be rather than allow it to continue to be their little sandbox. Some never liked the dinger. Some freaked out because Charles added monitors to help him delete comments (one was so bothered by this she melted down one morning because a monitor had the nerve to do their job and deleted her for quoting a troll). Others have issues with the thread topics or they don't like that viewpoints that differ from theirs are welcomed here. They have allowed various resentments over these development to build up to the point they are now lashing out. I will not mourn them leaving and I will not give them the benefit of the doubt when they post their little flounce, or sneak off and LIE to respected Lizards as to why they are not at LGF. They are bitter and hostile over a blog, and you want others here this morning to get a grip? Hon- it is others elsewhere who need to get one.

I'm with Throbert on this one. The ongoing personal attacks after a person has left or been banned are petty and mean spirited in the extreme. The target is no longer able to answer for themselves, so they also strike me as cowardly. Most important however, is that they drag the poster and the entire thread down to the same depths they are decrying. It's unpleasant, juvenile behavior that I wouldn't expect from most of the members here, particularly on what seems to be turning into a daily basis.

On a practical level, you're feeding the hate sites exactly what they're looking for - a response. Often a huge, never-ending response, which they inevitably see as justification for their own unpleasant behavior.

Either way, it's unbecoming and irritating in the extreme. I'd hope for better in the future.

Comments from the other side of the aisle tend to be rejected when people get angry. It's not about butthurt, but rather about the massive distrust the left and the right have for each other.

Umm...what do you make of this?

MANAGUA – The head of Nicaragua's Foreign Affairs Commission denies that the recent approval of foreign troop arrivals in Nicaragua is related to the crisis in neighboring Honduras.

Based on a Sept. 23 “urgent request” from President Daniel Ortega, the National Assembly quickly approved entrance into Nicaragua of 10 U.S. Special Forces troops and 30 Venezuelan troops, scheduled to arrive in October and November, reportedly for “humanitarian” and training purposes.

According to Nicaragua's constitution, the presence of any foreign troops in the country must be approved in advance by the National Assembly.

Opposition lawmaker Francisco Aguirre, president of the Foreign Affairs Commission, said the request “certainly didn't raise any suspicions.”

“Am I naive? Perhaps,” Aguirre told The Nica Times in an email. “But I honestly don't think any of this has to do with Honduras.”

Aguirre said that if there were any covert military actions planned against the de-facto Honduran government of Roberto Micheletti, those operations would be “completely invisible."

“The actors have no interest in having the National Assembly give them a green light,” the lawmaker said of conspirators. “Like mushrooms, they prefer moist, dark spaces to prosper.”

According to the congressional approval, 10 U.S. Special Forces troops, along with the USS Wasp, an amphibious assault ship, are authorized to enter Nicaragua from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31. The 30 Venezuelan troops, along with ships and Venezuelan Air Force planes, are authorized to enter the country on a rotating basis from Nov. 1, 2009 to April 10, 2010.

And I'm thinking about this. And this is not meant to be "tacky" or anything, but, in the final reel, what does it matter? This is a great community here, but really, does "winning" an argument, or making a point that everyone agrees with, does it really matter.

We are a bunch of virtual bits and bytes running through copper lines from here to there. We are not changing the world. We may be trying to change our immediate world, what we perceive are the outer edges of what we experience on a daily basis, but that is NOTHING on the scale of the real world.

This is fun, this is a good mind fuck, it can be entertaining, but some commenters seem to be consumed with the facade of all this, and how they fit into that picture.

If this were all gone tomorrow, it wouldn't matter, it shouldn't matter, does your life stop if Charles bans you? Will you stop breathing if you "flounce?"

I'm comfortable with saying what I have to say, make my point, and I feel no overriding desire to make anyone love me or hate me.

Up dings are a momentary "feel good" moment and thanks all around, down dings are opinions, not life changing moments...

Various opinions regarding Iran from the Council on Foreign Relations.

RE: US Russia and what to do. "The US should stop emphasizing the need for Russian cooperation, focus on developing a common front with key allies in Europe and the Middle East, and continue offering to negotiate directly with Tehran. Though Russian help might be useful in the abstract, Washington will have to find ways to solve the Iranian nuclear problem on its own."

[Link: www.cfr.org...]

Re: Russia/China views on sanctions. "...at this time, Iran is in the throes of remarkable domestic political changes, the outcome of which is almost impossible to predict with accuracy. Because it can't put its house in order, that leads to a very difficult situation. The regime has become quite strident and less inclined to accept compromise solutions."

[Link: www.cfr.org...]

Re: A mistake for Obama to be up front about offering to talk to Iran? "It was the right thing to do right from the beginning and it reflects what you might call the spirit of Obama's Cairo speech.
But that offer was made before the Iranian election on June 12 and its subsequent fallout. If you look at the fissures that have opened up in the Iranian leadership over the past few weeks, it's really hard to say to whom you would talk to or what [you would talk] about."

Not surprising. Given the way Obama has neutered our collection of intel, the terrorist must think they've been given a golden opportunity to strike.

Good point. He certainly ran a campaign that was soft on terrorism but once in office he seems to have kept most of the Bush era tools.

518 Flyers1974  Sat, Sep 26, 2009 9:06:39am

Recalling the conservative hysterics over Obama's failure to make a speech when the uprising in Iran happened in June, a different view: From Abbas Milani CFR interview "...Iranian democrats have unambiguously sought the moral support of the U.S. government, but they have eschewed any hint of connection to any agency of the U.S. government. [Iran's]tyrannical triumvirate has been desperate to find any credible link between the United States and the democratic opposition. So worried are they about the words of U.S. President Barack Obama that they have, incredibly, broadcast on at least one occasion a mangled translation of his speech, alleging that Obama has supported the efforts of the government to put down the "rioters." The Obama administration, cognizant of the karma that
haunts it, and of the triumvirate's machinations, has so far carefully, even masterfully, calibrated its statements to developments on the ground in Iran. It has avoided any effort to score cheap political partisan points at the expense of the nation's long-term strategic interests. Obama has managed to at least partially realize two apparently irreconcilable goals of U.S. interests and ideals: He has offered support for the Iranian people, sternly criticizing the triumvirate's brutalities, yet avoided offering any excuse for the paranoid regime to credibly claim that the United States is interfering in Iran's domestic affairs.

I understand that many of them would attack LGF anyway, because a lot of them are loser kooks, but it seems obvious to me that it's better not to give them the satisfaction of being able to make valid criticisms of LGF culture.

Worse, they're seen as provocations. Even if you're genuinely advising someone to calm down, they get angrier. It's some kind of flounce-feedback loop.

Don't use the word "flounce."

I don't know if that possibility can be ruled out, but my thought is that those who give the orders and recruit the suicide bombers, for example, are cold and calculated. Which is why they don't volunteer for those missions. I think if the regime started to collapse, the mullahs would be busy trying to escape with as much money as possible (and their lives.)

It went nowhere, of course. All they had to do was take one look at what she sent, and the fact that I did not publish her email address, and it was over.

Faster than Flash, Meltable Phase-Change Device Memory Is Finally in Production

It's been 40 years in the making. This week Samsung finally announced they've kicked phase-change memory (PCM) into mass production. In a nutshell, PCM stores information by melting and freezing microscopic crystals. In gadgets like cell phones, its frozen-in-place nature means lightning-fast bootup times--instantaneous, even.

Part of PCM's current appeal is that it actually works better the smaller it gets, unlike flash memory, which is the current go-to for small devices. Since flash memory saves data as small groups of electrons, the smaller the area you have to work with, the fewer electrons will fit, thus making the memory increasingly unstable.

PCM, on the other hand, actually benefits from shrinking, for a simple reason: smaller crystals melt and freeze faster. Matthias Wuttig, a physicist at RWTH Aachen University in Germany, has developed PCM cells that can switch on in 19 nanoseconds.

The concept of PCM has been around since the 1960s, but has presented persistent challenges for physicists. The first attempts used crystals that required extremely high temperatures in order to melt. By the time new crystal materials that shifted forms at lower temps were developed, gadget memory had already given way to the transistor (yes, flash).

Samsung's PCM memory, for now, is only 512MB. But, Gregory Atwood, a senior fellow at Numonyx Memory Solutions in Switzerland, speculates in Nature that, as the demand for smaller and smaller memory eclipses what flash can handle, more time and attention will be paid to PCM and its potential to succeed flash as the mobile go-to.

I don't get it but the pull of Glenn Beck is more than many people can resist.

I think in part he is a lot like the type of college professor who thinks teaching is entertaining, not educating, his students - there's no real substance in his lectures, but the students aren't bored because the professor is performing for them - and so they flock to his classes.

Several years ago I read a novel in which a passenger aboard a cruise ship in Alaska was missing and was presumed to have fallen overboard. The Anchorage Daily News (adn.com) had a story about a person missing from a cruise ship somewhere between Ketchikan and Vancouver, BC.

Simple, really

Two things at play here

#1) there's a reason Americas Funniest Videos TV show and The National Inquirer have lasted so long. "We" like to see sensationalism and train wrecks, as long as they're OTHER peoples

#2) Behind all the bombast and hyperbole and showmanship, there's a glimmer of connection to what Beck is saying when all the BS is stripped away. ACORN IS a corrupt entity. The core message of the Tea Party (too much out of control spending too fast, gov't expansion, elected officials treating their constituents as a necessay inconvenience, etc) resonates.

Customer service must be pretty bad.

Man sues BofA for "1,784 billion, trillion dollars"

Which is, by the way, $1.784 septillion, using American terminology:

1,784,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

Personally, I would've asked either for a sextillion dollars (because it sounds dirty) or a quintillion (because the letter "Q" is inherently funny, and because it suggests "quim," and thus also sounds dirty).

I think the key point is GB's roots are being a radio morning show "zoo" DJ where he pulled pranks and stunts, waged guerrilla war against rival DJ's, used fake voices to play out his made-up characters, all the same type of crap he does now. His job was to get ratings at all costs and the more controversy and publicity he created the better.

Now he's using the same tactics, just different topics.

And the opposite of that is true as well. One of my sisters and I had a rivalry when our kids were little to buy the others kid the most annoying toy possible. It started with a 100 piece, some assembly required, plastic crap and by the time we called a truce a few years later it had moved all the way up to a drum kit.

Comments from the other side of the aisle tend to be rejected when people get angry. It's not about butthurt, but rather about the massive distrust the left and the right have for each other. If The Other Les returns when I'm around I'm going to speack to him about this. At that point I'd ask you to hang back for a little bit, ice. No offense, but when you and Jimmah get involved, conservatives seem to feel that they are being dogpiled.

My arguments did not devolve into name calling. I did not call anyone names in the course of that thread - you are lying. It was in fact buzzsawmonkey whose crass insults were in question. And you downdinged people who criticised them.

re: #61 Gus 802

Fascism can be either left wing or right wing. Or as in the Merriam Webster definition: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control. The same with a dictatorship which can be both. There is also sometimes a mixture of the two between left and right. The 3rd Reich were also political opportunists and often weaved a path between leftist and rightist idealism.

I always understood the definition to have the second part: that and the use of accumulated power to deny others the ability to accumulate power or same entrapments.
