It's impossible to be a socialist and a fascist at the same time you morons
They are the opposites of each other
The Right Wingers are fascists, look up the Definition

Prescott Bush, Bush II's grandpa was part of a failed Fascist coup of FDR

Fascism-Government as a Corporation for the elite
just like Romney was runnig on

and another thing you morons never learn

Communism is a Right Wing form of Socialism, where the people are turned into slaves to a Totalitarian Gov.

That is the Very Opposite of a Liberal Society
Red Russia and China are Right Wing Governements

Socialism only provides the commons (like a military), the rest of the society is based on capitaism.

Yes the American Military is Socialism

ontheedgeandscaredtodeath please never need for winners to be embarrassed.

are you confused by what to do now after taking over the country? We celebrate and enjoy the fruits of victory. It is party time now and forever because we control the money. The losers must work for you and me now as a captive population. Our majority voters cannot live without our handouts so we can relax and have fun spending tax money on good things all their hard work earns for us

Okay, let's get the "isms" straight:

(Yes, I know this is a very old joke, but it's been updated)

Two Cows

SOCIALISM: You have two cows. State takes one and give it to someone else.

COMMUNISM: You have two cows. State takes both of them and gives you milk.

FASCISM: You have two cows. State takes both of them and sell you milk.

NAZISM: You have two cows. State takes both of them and shoot you.

BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. State takes both of them, kill one and spill the milk in system of sewage.

CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

Alternative: A COWSMIC VIEW OF WORLD ORGANIZATION

FEUDALISM: You have two cows. Your lord takes some of the milk.

PURE SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else's cows. You have to take care of all the cows. The government gives you as much milk as you need.

BUREAUCRATIC SOCIALISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and puts them in a barn with everyone else's cows. They are cared for by ex-chicken farmers. You have to take care of the chickens the government took from the chicken farmers. The government gives you as much milk and as many eggs as the regulations say you should need.

FASCISM: You have two cows. The government takes both, hires you to take care of them, and sells you the milk.

PURE COMMUNISM: You have two cows. Your neighbors help you take care of them, and you all share the milk.

RUSSIAN COMMUNISM: You have two cows. You have to take care of them, but the government takes all the milk.

DICTATORSHIP: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.

SINGAPORE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. The government fines you for keeping two unlicensed animals in an apartment.

MILITARIANISM: You have two cows. The government takes both and drafts you.

PURE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors decide who gets the milk.

REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbors pick someone to tell you who gets the milk.

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY: The government promises to give you two cows if you vote for it. After the election, the president is impeached for speculating in cow futures. The press dubs the affair "Cowgate".

BRITISH DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. You feed them sheep's brains and they go mad. The government doesn't do anything.

BUREAUCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. After that it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.

ANARCHY: You have two cows. Either you sell the milk at a fair price or your neighbors kill you and take the cows.

CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

HONG KONG CAPITALISM: You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping five cows. The milk rights of six cows are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the rights to all seven cows' milk back to the listed company. The annual report says that the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. Meanwhile, you kill the two cows because the Feng Shui is bad.

ENVIRONMENTALISM: You have two cows. The government bans you from milking or killing them.

FEMINISM: You have two cows. They get married and adopt a veal calf.

TOTALITARIANISM: You have two cows. The government takes them and denies they ever existed. Milk is banned.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: You are associated with (the concept of "ownership"is a symbol of the phallo-centric, war-mongering, intolerant past) two differently-aged (but no less valuable to society) bovines of non-specified gender.

COUNTER CULTURE: Wow, dude, there's like... these two cows, man. You got to have some of this milk. Far out! Awesome!

SURREALISM: You have two giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

JAPANESE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. You give the milk to gangsters so they don't ask any awkward questions about who you're giving the milk to.

EUROPEAN FEDERALISM: You have two cows which cost too much money to care for because everybody is buying milk imported from some cheap east-European country and would never pay the fortune you'd have to ask for your cows' milk. So you apply for financial aid from the European Union to subsidise your cows and are granted enough subsidies. You then sell your milk at the former elevated price to some government-owned distributor which then dumps your milk onto the market at east-European prices to make Europe competitive. You spend the money you got as a subsidy on two new cows and then go on a demonstration to Brussels complaining that the European farm-policy is going drive you out of your job.

EASTERN EUROPEAN DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. You sell the milk (diluted with some water) at a high price to the neighbors or to anyone at the open-air market. If somebody asks for receipt, you charge for a two times higher price, so nobody will request an invoice. For concerned families with small babies you claim that the milk is "bio", though you collect the grass for feeding at the side of the highway and you keep the milk in plastic barrels used previously as containers of dangerous chemicals. Later, your neighbor or anybody from town will steal the cows and will buy their meat for a high price, and if you ask for a receipt, you will be charged for a two times higher price.

FINNISH SOCIALISM: You have two cows. Soon you have to kill one of them because in the Netherlands there is an overproduction of milk and the European Union rules say so. When you do so, you realize that it was not necessary, only the system was too slow in getting you the up-to-date news. From the stress, you get an ulcer in your stomach so you go to a doctor. The doctor realizes that this ulcer is a serious one, so you need an urgent treatment. Therefore, you soon get a call to the local hospital. The call's date is for 3 months later, because there is a queue with more urgent cases. Then your ulcer becomes even more serious because you remember that 40 percent of your income is taken for social tax.

Hey.. I didn't say that they didn't have the technology. If they can do it in dogs, then they can do it in humans. But as for them forcing every human to do it.. I believe that Americans wont put up with it. Do some whack jobs in the government want that? I'm certain that they do, but I'm also certain that the American public wont go for it.

So no.. I'm not worried about it.

That cow stuff was funny but how does one get a cow of their own in the first place for the state to take it away if the state is fascist, communist, etc.?

It would be far easier to just quote Wikipedia than to make up a bunch of comments about what is socialism.

Socialism refers to an economic system characterized by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy.

It is not where the state provides for a common military and nothing else, Dr. F. At least it's not communism where everyone shares wages. Oh, but then tips are shared in our food industry so that's a bit communist, isn't it.

Shrinking California child population signals major changes for state

January 8, 2013An unprecedented decline in California’s child population, coupled with a tidal wave of baby boom retirees, will pose significant challenges for the state’s future prosperity, according to an analysis of census data released today by the USC Price School of Public Policy and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health.

In 1970, children made up 33 percent of California’s population, but by 2030 they’re expected to comprise just 21 percent, according to the report.

The growing imbalance between children and retirees means that the economic role of a child born in 2015 will be nearly twice as important as that of a child born in 1985, the report suggested.

“These trends are not yet widely recognized, but they should be a wake-up call for policymakers,” said report author Dowell Myers, professor of policy and demography and director of the Population Dynamics Research Group at USC. “We will be increasingly dependent economically and socially on a smaller number of children. They are more important to the state’s future success than ever before.”

Why exactly is California’s child population shrinking? Far-reaching demographic changes, including declining birth rates, fewer newcomers to the state and a smaller population of women of childbearing age all play a role, Myers said.

The state’s birth rate has declined in every major racial and ethnic group since 2000 and has fallen below what demographers call the necessary “replacement level” of 2.1 births per woman. The loss of California’s children coincides with the expected retirements of the state’s over-65 population whom these children will replace as workers, taxpayers, voters and consumers.

California’s demographic shift mirrors those in other states, including New York, Illinois, Michigan and Massachusetts.

The report noted two additional trends that may strongly influence the state’s future. A rise in the “home-grown” population — more than 90 percent of today’s children under age 10 was born in the state — is a sharp reversal from previous decades. While California historically relied on newcomers from other states and countries for its workforce, that trend is in decline, and the state will increasingly need to rely on the skills and abilities of its native-born children.

“The majority of the next generation of workers will have been shaped by California’s health and education systems,” Myers said. “It’s essential that we nurture our human capital.”

Many of those future workers, however, will have grown up in poverty. More than 20 percent of children in California now live below the federal poverty level. Poverty rates are twice as high among California children as adults, the report stated. Poverty can limit children’s access to food, housing, health care and education, hindering their development and restricting their potential.

For the report, commissioned by the Packard Foundation, Myers and his colleagues analyzed data from the 2010 U.S. Census, the American Community Survey and additional data sources. Their findings covered trends in the state’s child population; the economic value of children as future workers; the state’s growing racial and ethnic diversity; the birthplace origins of children; changes in family characteristics; and poverty levels among children.

Other key findings from the report:

•Since 1970, California has averaged about 21 seniors per 100 working age adults. By 2030, that ratio is projected to rise to 36 seniors per 100 working age adults.
•California’s children are highly diverse, with the largest group being of Hispanic or Latino origin (51.2 percent), with non-Hispanic whites the second largest group (27.4 percent), followed by Asian and Pacific Islanders (10.7 percent), African-Americans (5.6 percent) and all others (5.1 percent).
•Migration to the state has been greatly reduced over the past 20 years, and that pattern is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
•Nearly half of school-age children are being raised in households where English is not the primary language. Many of these children will have bilingual skills that will prove valuable, but in the short term they and their families may require tailored social, health and educational services.
•In 2010, 16 percent of children were living in households headed by a single mother and were therefore more likely to experience economic hardship.
•Children are growing up in increasingly varied types of households. While nearly two-thirds of children live in households headed by married couples, that percentage has decreased in recent decades.
“All of these findings make a compelling argument that our policies and programs increasingly must support the health, education and well-being of the state’s children,” said David Alexander, president and CEO of the Packard Foundation. “In particular, we must address the growing rates of child poverty and the persistent child health disparities found in ethnic and racial groups.”

Myers is director of the Population Dynamics Research Group at USC and a specialist in California’s demographic future. He is the author of Immigrants and Boomers: Forging a New Social Contract for the Future of America.

Professor Dowell Myers and his colleagues analyzed data from the 2010 U.S. Census.
