Dude, take it up with someone who can help with that sort of thing.

Who is actually working to change this unconstitutional law?

Shouldn't the supreme court be overturning it?

I'm sorry, survival, I realized I posted the same video twice.

And, I did confuse signing statements with executive orders. Thanks for setting me straight.

Re. the Patriot act this is the video I meant to post.

Dave, please note Obama implies the Patriot Act is an "end run" around the constitution. A statement with which I agree.

I define fascism as politics, government and the broad attempt to control others colored by an anger that is seeping down into hate and the considerations that portions on humanity can only be controlled by force, threat of extermination and extermination.

Some fascists sit on a couch and spout vitriol about "those" people. You often feel dirty or much less happy after listening to them.

Fascist organizations seem to be quite sturdy in structure and always seem to be effectively busy violating basic human rights, often in very complex and covert ways that leave you with a feeling of being overwhelmed.

Positive and creative people make the real advances in civilization. Fascists undermine these and cause eventual collapse.

It's doubtful, and rather ahistorical, to characterize Attila the Hun or Temujin (Genghis Khan) as "fascists". They were authoritarian and autocratic, but only notable in that they were more successful in doing so than other peoples and leaders of the time. Fascism as it's understood now isn't really possible without a somewhat industrialized society, the modern nation state, etc. The first arguably fascistic states were those that arose in Europe in reaction to the French revolution and Napoleon, or perhaps after the revolts of 1848.

from Wikipedia:

corporative organization of the economy that suppresses trade union liberty, broadens the sphere of state intervention, and seeks to achieve, by principles of technocracy and solidarity, the collaboration of the 'productive sectors' under control of the regime, to achieve its goals of power, yet preserving private property and class divisions;"

Sorry to break up the party but most of these people are fascists only in the sense that the word has become a pejorative for authority of any kind.

Probably call these folks nihilsts or anarchists.

The ones on this thread may be better termed sociopaths. Not locker and Herrr Braun.

The director, Paul V, was trying to say that war makes fascists of us all.
